The hotel in which this restaurant is located is a little out of South Beach but go!!!! Pay $20 for either bottomless 'bloody Mary's or mimosas'. The food is very good and the views from the restaurant over the ocean are very cool.

For my 31st birthday my husband hosted a brunch at Mr. Collins. They were very accommodating! They personalized the menu for me to take home. It wished me happy birthday at the top of each menu. That made me feel very special! :) The meal was delicious. One of my favorite dishes is the crab cake salad! YUM! As if... More

Great waterviews of Haulover Beach and Intracoastal. Too bad the mediocre food does NOT live up to the world class location. New chef promises changes and we can only hope SOON! Every time we visit, we keep hoping but are disappointed. Let's see how the new guy works out!

We visit Mister Collins regularly, realizing the food is slight above average but the views, ambiance and wine list are excellent. Some time we sit on the deck located high above Inlet and take in the sights, the Atlantic Ocean breezes and relaxed atmosphere. imo, this place is best enjoyed over a couple of appetizers and a glass or two...

Three and a half stars. Mostly for the view, the ambience, the décor - and one of the best restrooms I've ever been in. Mister Collins is in ONE Bal Harbor, a resort/residence/spa, next to the harbor and Atlantic. Parking is by valet, $5 after validation. Nice elegant modern décor, banks of floor to ceiling windows, and an outdoor terrace.... More

Concierge recommended we visit Mister Collins, which we found located in the ONE Hotel which is the last building next to the waterway. Great food, from the yacca chips with guacamole, kale salad and mahi sandwich. Service was friendly, but extremely slow, and we were there mid-afternoon when the restaurant wasn't busy. Outdoor seating was nice - you have a... More

Despite the reviews we went anyways. Point being we should have listened. Atmosphere is awesome but the food not so much. Way overlooked filet, barely could eat it. Scallops and guacamole were enjoyable, pretty standard though. Burger was OK but again, basic. For the price not worth it. We would go back but only for drinks to sit outside.

You can sit outside and have your breakfast, lunch and dinner overlooking the water, which is remarkably close, a rarity on Miami Beach. The place is very relaxing and shaded during the day. The food is just OK. I had a chicken with good dark meat and dry white meat. My wife had the striped bass, which she enjoyed, but... More
