I love this place. The food is clean and classic. The ambiance is gorgeous. Try their lemon ricotta pancakes and the egg white frittata!!! And omg the doughnuts are also spectacular, and my friend even had gluten free pancakes, what a treat! The service is exceptional! You won't be disappointed :)

We ate here three times when we stayed at the Raleigh, we enjoyed all of our meals, although it is a tad expensive. Service was very good too.

We were bought to our table by a hard to explain his position, lets say waiter. Another came and introduced himself as our table waiter,and upon asking him to change a... More

I have been to the previous restaurant at the Raleigh and it was awesome, same great experience at the other Michael Schwartz Restaurant. I thought that the combination of the two would be a winner, however it was a little disappointing. Food was not of the same quality and the portions were really small. Wines were overpriced, 300% markup on... More

I was in South Beach for a conference and was staying across the street from this restaurant. I had the most amazing mussels. This is saying alot since I thought until I ate at Michael Schwartz, I thought the recipe I had was the best. The food was so good, I went back the next night and ate there again.... More

Had lunch here yesterday and had the fish tacos and pork pizza. The fish tacos had a piece of fish maybe the size if my pinky finger in them and tasted like absolutely nothing. I'd almost rather them have been just bad or something. They simply had zero flavor. The pizza was just slightly better, but again, very little taste... More

We ate outside for dinner two nights in a row. Had fabulous food and service. The bread was wonderful. The drink prices compared to the bar at the Fontainbleu were HIGHER for the same wine ...

Mouth watering food, excellent presentation, beautiful at night and the service was outstanding. The butter even tasted exotic! Fresh fish and portions were perfect - not too big, not too small. PS: the bartenders are super mixologists

Enjoyed the oysters and fish tacos while my wife enjoyed a green salad and mozzarella pizza. The pizza was large enough to feed two adults. The food here is quite good and we did enjoy a few glasses of wine with lunch. I would have rated excellent, but the wait staff could use a little polishing. Overall, we would stop... More
