My wife and I selected this restaurant for our 8th wedding anniversary dinner. We had dined here several years ago, but they have remodeled and it is more elegant than ever. No detail is overlooked. Our server, Mike, was extremely friendly and made several recommendations and gave us some history of this landmark Miami Beach restaurant. The food is delicious.... More

I went to the Forge with a work trip and had an excellent steak so made a point of taking my partner while on vacation, but the second time was not as good and not worth the very expensive bill. First off there was no host when we entered and we wandered into the restaurant and were ignored. When she... More

Went on a Friday night and had a great time. Have a nice happy hour that offers $50 bottle of champagne. The food was excellent and good service. Beautifully decorated and fun atmosphere. Will definitely go back

I have eaten at the Forge many times since 1977. Each time was absolutely awesome. The Decor (room dependant) is wonderful and the food excellent. Any chance I get to enjoy a meal at the Forge, I will. Not too extravagant but definitely not cheap. Just GOOD. I was impressed with the Sommelier, the selection and the attention taken for... More

Unfortunately disappointing. Over an hour wait for our table despite 8:30 pm reservation and being told twice that "we were next". Wine selections unavailable at our table despite having had them by the glass at the bar waiting to be seated. Conversation difficult at best due to loud background noise and irritating bar DJ music. Very long waits for our... More

We made reservations for our special anniversary (clearly stated, and totally ignored by the staff). Combined with the $10 (yes, $ten) valet fee, with palms outstretched for more, this was not a good start. Amazingly, it went downhill from there. The first table offered to us was a crowded one right at the entrance with constant passing traffic (the seating... More

We were very taken with the atmosphere and the food at the Forge. It has an eclectic decor and made you feel like you were at a special event. I ordered a cocktail that wasn't on the menu and it was delivered perfectly. My wife ordered from the "Miami Spice" menu (a seasonal citywide food festival with prix fix discounts)... More

I recently visited The Forge in Miami Beach to celebrate my gf's birthday. We arrived to a very welcoming hostess followed by wonderful service but more importantly outstanding food and drinks. The atmosphere was excellent and the ambiance was just right. We each had steaks with their top of the line toppings and finger licking sides. I would 150% recommend... More

The Forge is billed as an upscale restaurant with great food and ambiance. NOT SO!! The food is fair but tremendously overpriced. 12 dollars for a baked potato$!!! But it does include the sour cream...... The steaks were good. This was the saving grace of the restaurant. The service was mediocre. A 20% automatic gratuity for all parties (not just... More
