I booked a reservation for my girlfriend’s birthday and noted in the comments that it was for a birthday celebration. Immediately after walking in the restaurant, the host wished my girlfriend a happy birthday and throughout our dinner the staff was great. They even gave us a complimentary dessert on a Birthday plate. I highly recommend this restaurant as it was a great experience and the food was fantastic.

The only negative was that we were seated upstairs. The upstairs lacks character and does not carry the ambience of the ground floor.

Sat next to the window looking out to the water and watched the bartender outside eat his hamburger and fries behind the bar when he thought no one was looking. Crab app and salad were great. Ordered the porterhouse medium, came out almost well done, server sent it back for us but hardly apologized. Came out the second time perfectly cooked. Ordered the toasted marshmallow sundae...marshmallows were not toasted, just out of the bag with ice cream and crumbled graham crackers. I didnt mention it since the steak was already sent back. Server barely acknowledged us throughout the meal. Very disappointing dinner.

I have eaten at S&W , all over the USA.
Our server had to be switched out. 2 hours to receive our food ! Same steak ( filet ) had to be sent back twice & still was tough. Salmon was seasoned on Skin side. My steak was good , but out of 6 people , I was the only one.
In all my years of going to S&W , I’ve never had a cold meal this bad. It was our Wedding anniversary , invited 2 couples , telling them to be prepared for the best steak they aver had.
I was embarrassed, and apologized to our guests.
I will defiantly return , because I know it was just a terrible night for us.
I just wish they had limited their reservations , if they did not have the staff to deliver the level of service & quality of food, I have experienced in Vegas / Boston / Houston & certainly in the nice location in miami ( previously ). Thanks , Mike

We decided to eat there on New Year’s Eve. We had reservations but still waited a bit since we wanted to sit in their beautiful outdoor area. The service was excellent, and the food was amazing. The only complaint was the seafood tower for two; it was very sparse and mostly ice.

This S&W location was managed like a Chili’s.. a really bad one.

I have been to several other locations and would recommend you avoid this location at al costs.

- They overbooked! - had to wait despite making reservation.

- As soon as one table left, they made a frantic ruckus preparing the table for the next table.

-Our waiter apologized a million times throughout the dinner but could tell she had just had it with the restaurant

-We had to ask for bread as waited for dinner, rather than them bringing it out first thing

-A wine glass broke behind us and our waiter asked another waiter to clean it. - He angrily banged the broom and dust pan behind us.

-Our waiter asked another waiter to get our check. - He angrily took his sweet time.

-As we left there were plates and Pepsi cans lining the stair well hand rail ledge!

Had a manager from another S&W location saw this atrocity, they would be appalled!!!!!!

Witnessing other well-known restaurants close doors in Miami, it is my opinion that this is exactly how that happens - poor management and loosing the respect of loyal customers.

The server didn’t offer up an alternatives to sangria,
Although, I understand not on the menu, chicago S&W bartenders would wish something up, to appease the customer. Additionally, ordered the prime bone-in ribeye medium and it came put well. I didn’t have the heart to send it back, but definitely, not my best experience at S&W. The outside dining host is roaming around and not clearly visible to all, as there is no outside patio host booth. She’s walking around with an iPad- I shouldn’t have to chase you when I’ve made a reservation ahead of time. As for social distance and Covid protocol, they seemed to be following all CDC recommendations.

Les plats sont toutefois assez basiques au final, les salades baignent dans la sauce.

Portions have significantly decreased, especially the sides, since our last visit a couple of years ago. Had to send back a filet as it was tough to cut and it took at least 20 minutes for a new one to come out. Caesar salad was rather bland. Food had good flavor and overall we had a nice meal, but will not go back due to the expectations we have come to take for granted when dining at several of your locations.

We reserved outdoor dining, then found out it was first come first served when we got there and it was a 45 minute wait. They sat us under a vent that blew away the menus at our seat. It took forever for someone to figure out who our server was, and get our drink orders and food orders. The music was loud in this small room we were in, and the food took forever. Very disappointing especially with getting the Cajun ribeye. Mine was good marbling , but his was about 50% fat.
