Such a romantic location - loved the jazz music and the food was incredible. Best butter (!!!) and corn (side dish) we have ever had! I also loved the kale Caesar salad, the swordfish, and the steak.

We decided not to partake in a restaurant in Lincoln Road so we decided to eat in the hotel. Food was good but it took so long to get served, I hate to be there on a busy night. We got the table at 7.30 pm and finished at around 10.30 pm - not good after a long day at... More

Great customer service here and romantic atmosphere, but the food was just ok. My husband's dish was pretty bland, and mine was way too salty. They replaced it with a smile. I think I just expected more from this type of restaurant. Coming from Atlanta, we are big time foodies and this just didn't make the cut.

I have dined here several times as a couple and loved the food, but they really did a great job with my 25 person rehearsal dinner. Spectacular venue and great food.

Michael Schwartz may have one restaurant too many. He needs to spend some time at this location (Raleigh Hotel) to put it back on track. The meal was uneven, service was amateurish. The potato chips were the highlight. It was one of those restaurant nights when very little went well. The management seemed to know that things weren't going well... More

Was dying for a cubano as soon as I got into Miami. Michael Schwartz' @ The Raleigh is worth the stop. I could have had two!

Background: I was visiting Miami to escape from the cold in NY with my friends. Taking advice from a local chef and his wife, we made reservations here on a weekday night. Atmosphere: Since the weather was beautiful, we sat outside under the trees lit with tiny candles. Who can resist palm trees, a gorgeous pool and candlelight? Absolutely beautiful.... More
