This is my favorite spot in Miami for great food and an amazing view. Everything on the menu is spectacular. It is updated often, and I am always exited to see what new creations are added. Get a table outside, stunning view of Miami during sunset. Raw oysters are superb, great selection and always very fresh.

I had my wedding in Rusty Pelican a month ago. Stacey Gershon who is the catering sales manager, helped me through the whole process. All that time me and my husband were 100% sure that she is very responsible and everything will be the way we planned to!! But.... we were mistaken...!!! First, she promised to let people in to...

If you are going for the view, then its a 10, however, food was good, not great. The prices are truly obscene. $14 Caesar salad was yummy. The $42 Filet Minion arrived over cooked the first time, and tough and grainy the second time. The $36 snapper and toothfish, tasted good, but again was obscenely priced for what you get.... More

The view is outrageous! And thats it. The inside smells really really bad, the server was slow and wasnt that friendly, specially when a bigger group arrived. The prices are really expensive for the quality of food they serve. The presentation of the dishes was beautiful, but the tastes was extremely disappointing. Some dishes tasted awfull and others tasted like... More

I took my wife here for our 41st anniversary and we had a wonderful meal. The restaurant is located on Key Biscayne and has an outstanding view of the Miami skyline - I recommend checking it out at sunset and afterward! Bring your camera! Do note, however the restaurant isn't cheap - so if you are looking for a bargain,... More

Great view, bottomless mimosas are fantastic. the service was great but I asked for sausage instead of bacon for a egg sandwich and they were out. Other than that I had a fantastic time and would definitely come back
