The Forge -- overpriced, underwhelmed

Before going to the Forge, I read the reviews--both positive and negative. I was intrigued by the history and the architecture of the place and decided to try it for their Friday Happy Hour. Since I was a solo diner, I sat at the bar. I seldom write negative reviews, but after my experience, I... read more

Dined at The Forge on 2/24/15. Group of 6 people. The service and food was excellent. They treat you like you are a VIP. Enjoyed the 12 Aged Steak, hash brown dish, Macaroni dish and two chocolate deserts (can't remember their names). All were delicious.

Great find just a short distance from the string of hotels near the Edon Roc. The food is fantastic but the decor was what I loved, they have the largest mirror I think I have ever seen and we asked the waiter the history of the place thinking we would just get a few random comments but 10 minutes later...

Terrific meal and service. I notice a number of reviewers complain about the service charge. Most high end (and some not so high end) restaurants in Miami impose a service charge to cope with the many international visitors. I've always had great service at the Forge and feel the Forge gives good value for the price and the experience. It's... More

I was recommended to the forge as the first restaurant I should dine in as my first night in Miami. I will never forget. My wife and I went for Valentine's Day and sat in the main dining right in the front. Our server looking quite young of age was attentive throughout the whole night. To our cocktail selection, wine... More

A throw back to a time when customers represent more than a tip. Many restaurants in Miami automatically add 20% to your bill which is really terrible as many many places have servers with bad attitudes and poor service. Perhaps they should go back to getting what the customer feels they deserve and the service will improve? The Forge defies... More

Nothing but absolute perfection, from location to service to food. I will talk about this restaurant at every opportunity and will return. I was unable to complete as many wines on the 51 page listing that I would have liked, working through them is now on my bucket list.

Took us over 30 mins till our main course came out.... More
