This was our first time at The Forge. The restaurant is located in a very interesting building complex, a short drive from the beach hotels. The service was superb...probably one of the best restaurant service we ever encountered in Miami. The food was very well prepared. We highly recommend this restaurant.

How did I have no idea this place existed? The Forge is both an impeccable looking place and the best service too! Attractive design and pretty people. We started with cocktails and the best French onion soup ever! Better than in Paris. The beef tartare was a very classy addition. We also ordered the black pepper filet, asparagus and truffle...

My first dinner at Forge was 20 years ago and it was unforgettable. The food was incredible, two servers were always observing the table and nearby to ensure every need was met. And the crowd was a rich mix of people and characters, and the atmosphere was high-end, proper and yet comfortable. Fast forward and things have changed. While the... More

Such a lovely evening. Our trio of three women visited The Forge on a quiet Monday night. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the hostess we were treated to pinnacle service. Our server, Chris Wilgos, was exceptional. He was able to quickly get a read on the "vibe" of our group and tailored his delivery throughout the... More

The food was not only terrible but the service was a serious rival. When we literally waited over an hour and fifteen minutes for our entrees they were virtually inedible. To add insult to injury when the waitress finally returned and looked at our plates her only response was oh sorry. She did not address it nor did she send... More
