Description: The menu, accessibly priced, will change with the seasons, and aspires to include both the accessible and adventurous. A wood burning oven will infuse flavor into vegetables, chicken, and pizza. Regionally raised grass-fed beef will be used in house-made hamburgers, sausages, and corned beef, among other items. Also on offer will be refreshing salads, including the notable "50-mile" salad, made with ingredients sourced within 50 miles of the restaurant. Food service will extend to the bar, and to complement menu items, old-fashioned cocktails, artisanal beers, and a large selection of reasonably priced wines will be available. Rather than bottled water, Sustain will serve filtered water from an in-house system, free of charge. Desserts, made on premise will feature homey delights such as warm fresh-baked cookies, cobblers, and doughnuts.

Dinner on 5/6 at Sustain would have been excellent, except that "Tina's Pride" Heirloom Tomato salad did not do justice to the ingredients. For $12 I was served a "large" salad that was a surprizingly small pile of unimaginatively dressed arugula with a suggestion of bleu cheese and about 1/4 of a smallish tomato. So I was pleasantly surprised when... More

In beautiful Midtown Miami Sustain appears cool and hip when you walk in. The decor is unique and modern with that eco-chic vibe going on. I was very interested to try the restaurant as it had been recommended by a foodie business colleague who was my dining companion that evening. The restaurants concept is to source locally and organically which... More

Great service, really pretty presentation of food, and the pavlova passion fruit dessert was yummy, but our fish entrees were a bit salty and didn't taste super fresh. Loved the feel of the restaurant, but won't be dying to go back.

We were here on New Years Eve and the ambiance and the food all of it - just awesome. The service is very friendly and had a great time there. Everything in the resturant is locally grown and I heard Organic (didnt verify on that though). Really liked the food here though.

We went on a Thursday evening and were able to get in without a reservation, surprisingly. My wife had been here before and raved about it. It was late so I wanted to eat "light" and ordered appetizers - spinach salad, shrimp and grits, bone marrow and a "Bootleggers Run" cocktail. My wife ordered snapper and the kids ordered the...

Sustain has a great location with the Midtown Miami development, an excellent outdoor dining area, and a very stylish interior. Ingredients are expertly composed and the menu is truly inspiring, without being overdone. Prices are extremely fair and the service is very professional, with attention to detail (think shaved salt in its own dish w/spoon). We always look forward to... More

Dined here with my family for Saturday Brunch. The food was unbelievable and the service was so polished. I wish we would have eaten here for dinner the same night. Just that good!!! Do yourself a favor and give this place a try, I know we are anticipating our next visit. Love it, love it...
