We found this on line in a search for BEst Desserts in the Miami beach area. Luckily, we did look at the menu on line, and realized we were not able to afford the meal, only the Chocolate fondue we wanted. So, booked the reservation, for fondue only. We were not at all familiar with the area, and drove past... More

I'm not quite a local but consider myself an "adopted" local since Miami is my 2nd home. I'm not a fan of the touristy/overpriced restaurants so was excited when a friend recommended this place. The ambience is very cool - dimly lit & furnished exquisitely. The DJ was playing an amazing 80s mix - we had a table of 10... More

My husband picked this restaurant to have our 20 year anniversary diner. It could not have been any better of an experience if it were a dream. Our waiter Mike went far and beyond any waiter as ever done. From the history of the art, the wooden tabes, to the stained glass. I felt like I was treated like royalty.... More

From the greeting outside the restaurant to the time the door was opened for me when I left, I was treated like a queen. Our server, Chris, was exactly attentive enough; not too much to be annoying but enough to anticipate our needs. The manger, Adam, checked back throughout the evening to be sure everything was going well. He made... More

I haven't been to The Forge in a few years (not since the makeover) and every bit of the experience at The Forge I recently had was more than just a pleasant birthday surprise. The Forge reminds you that there is so much more to Miami Beach than hip, flash in the pan, trendy dining experiences, something that cannot be... More

I shouldn't really be putting a review on here as I never sat down and had a meal in the restaurant but I felt I had to give this place 5 stars having had such a great time on a Friday evening. The Forge Bar does happy hour on a Friday between 5pm and 9pm and it was very busy... More

I frequent steakhouse in cities all over the country and The Forge has my rating as the best of the best. Meat quality was superb, temperatures cooked to perfection and the 'customize your steak' option is unique and fun. The place is not a stuffy, traditional steakhouse but rather a vibrant, lively environment. Service matched the quality of the rest... More

I hadn't visited since the renovations. I thought it would be a great place to celebrate my birthday based on passed experience. Even with a reservation they gave us the worst table in the house. I would have loved to have had my own table in the main room rather than a shared uncomfortable couch in the small room. Waiter... More

The Forge is aptly named as the memory of this amazing dining experience is iron clad. Christopher Lee's attention to every detail is evident and conveyed in every bite. The service impeccable and prices an exceptional value for what I felt was absolute genius on a plate. Whether you want a porterhouse cooked to perfection or a tasting menu of... More
