Our favorite restaurant in the Miami Beach area. Overlooking the Southern point of Miami as the ships come in. Our favorite table looks out over the bar, and is a great people watching location. We have had nothing but outstanding food at Smith and Wolinsky. Yesterday we were happily served by Fernando P. who was an outstanding waiter. The New... More

Have been to S&W in other places so new that the food would be good but picked this for its location as it is on the water at the bottom of South Beach. Really good location and and a nicely laid out restaurant. We ate outside which gave us a nice view and also the interest of the passing show.... More

I know this place is a classic and I do not mind paying $$$$ for good quality food but it's a little suprising that this place has done ZERO about updating a menu that now just looks bland and boring. How about something creative from the kitchen? As a special? Needless to say, we have no interest in going back.... More

The view and atmosphere of the restaurant are gorgeous, but that's it. It's expensive and the food is not worth it. Besides, the staff is slow and rude.

Smith&Wollensky is located on a nice spot at the waterside in South Beach. Not a typical Miami buliding more east coast style. We had a reservation but got no place outside - actually we had to wait 30 min or more...so we decided to eat inside. Mistake ! It was freezing cold I wore a sweater and my husbands jacket... More

Had a family dinner here. Looking forward to the location and view. Convinced to eat inside as those outside complaining about insect bites. Not sure true felt like trying to ensure we stayed as we didn't have a reservation and if those outside unhappy it was still full an no one left. Too much table side up selling wasn't advice... More

The food is certainly good and on par with other Smith & Wollensky restaurants around the country. Known for its Steaks -- but there are a couple other awesome (possibly better) steak places within a few blocks. Go for the view and atmosphere at the outdoor bar and patio. Between 4:30-7:30 and you can see the cruise boats pass right... More

We had a deliciously refreshing Mojito at the bar outside, overlooking the water. Very nice way to end the night (or to begin).

If you're visiting South Beach, don't miss out on the outside bar of Smith & Wollensky. This is the best spot in the restaurant. I don't think the inside restaurant is anything to rave about, but a cocktail at the waterfront bar is not to be missed. The bartenders make awesome drinks and the view is amazing. You can also...
