Good food, beautiful view

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. We wanted a lighter dinner after a late lunch so we both had sandwiches. My husband had a spinach salad and french dip and I had a hamburger. The atmosphere was relaxing.

I ordered room service & the bistro prepares the meals. The lobster, fresh oysters & asparagus was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent. I ordered pool service from the restaurant & it was top notch.

We used to go there very often before the Ritz bought the place and were happy to know that not much have changed. Food is delicious, the staff is so good and friendly and the view is simply stunning. Love living in South Florida :)

Had lunch at the Bistro mid-August 2015. Expected top quality and service from a Ritz-Carlton. Instead, we had tasteless food and wine by the glass that was vented. No reaction from management when I brought the problem to their attention. The only outstanding things that day were the price and the automatic service charge. Keep clear, there are many better...

We had both lunch and dinner here. It was really quiet all 3 times. Service was awesome. They remembered our names and drinks. Menu was not extensive, but really good and unique to the location. The Atlantic oysters, ceviche, and grilled octopus were my favorites. Best meals we had during 9 days on Miami Beach. Only minimal complaint is that... More

I made a reservation the day before and I asked about the menu for brunch. They never mentioned it was buffet. When I got there I was surprised, even though I'm not a great fan of buffets I decided to try. I was hoping to get more options for a $65 buffet. No eggs, no bacon, no pancakes, no waffles,... More
