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

I think this restaurant is a must see in Miami, the place itself its already worth the visit. Super elegant and chic venue, best chandeliers in Miami. This is a historic place in Miami, great names have dined here and the wine cellar is one of the best in the country. I personally enjoyed the food very much and the... More

The decor for the Forge is just breathtaking - the chandeliers from the White House were particularly striking. It's worth it to visit just to feel like you're part of history - some truly famous names have dined at The Forge. I personally didn't like my food. I am gluten- and dairy-free, so admittedly have a different dining experience to... More

We visited the Forge for the annual Miami Spice event. This is where you get a 3 course meal for 39.99 each. A great way to experience such a "primo" restaurant such as The Forge. I started with the infused bacon followed by filet mignon and partner had the salad followed by pastrami duck - to end the meal we... More

We had dinner here and it was lovely. The staff was fairly attentive. They were pretty busy on a saturday night. The wine prices and selection were reasonable. We both ordered the same cut of steak, but one rare and the other medium, which we realized once we were half through our meal had been served incorrectly. Maybe they could... More

Way to show your creativity, and passion for you diners, by carelessly throwing out the same menu as last year… what a joke.

Shareef M, Owner at The Forge, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback. You may be mistaken, though, as our Miami Spice menu can not be the same from last year, since we have a completely new menu. Aside from 2 salads, the entire menu has been recreated by our new chef, Christopher Lee. Also, we are changing our Miami Spice menu every week, so that diners can... More

Went there on a Friday night for the "spice" menu which is offered in August. It was a strange crowd and the music was loud, but I am told that this is only for weekend nights when they have a DJ. Food was good, though not spectacular. People-watching definitely interesting. :) this is a pretty well-known Miami Beach place -... More
