We loved this restaurant, we ate here twice during our three night stay despite other reservations. The atmosphere is perfect, quiet and romantic with twinkling lights and the glow of the pool. The food is wonderful, I had an amazing appetizer with prosciutto, grilled peaches and jalapeno and my husband loved the kale caesar. The main courses were wonderful as... More

This should not be an "average" dining experience. In fact, the food was very good, but the experience did not reflect a professionally run kitchen - even if it was just lunch on a Monday! Our arrival was welcoming and pleasant, and even though we were early for our reservation we were promptly seated. Our favorite wine came quickly -... More

Take a cab no parking. The valet was $30 for the parking. The food was ok we never went back. It was not a memorable event.

I am a frequent client of many restaurants in Miami, and probably eat out 6 out of 7 days a week (lunch and dinner). I am an optimistic person and typically try to find charm even in the most simple of places, I don't get easily surprised by glitz and glam, but truly try to fine something special about every...

We stayed at the Raleigh hotel. The restaurant is located outside with the tables placed around a big tree and right by the pool. The entire setting is very nice - day and night. Service was very friendly and the food was really good. Try the potatoes Waxmann on the side. They're delicious. So definitely one of the best places... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Miami. I love their burrata, short rib, grilled octopus, duck confit and... The lettuce salad. Seriously, not sure how they do this but even that takes better than you could imagine. Make reservation, as this place is always packed.

We stayed at The Raleigh last month and ate breakfast and lunch at Restaurant Michael Schwartz just about every day. Each time was a superb experience. Locavore cuisine with amazing craft, and a fantastic wine list that even included a custom Barbera. We found the service very friendly and efficient, and the F&B manager Anna could not have been nicer... More

I proposed to my now-fiancee here and had a wonderful experience. Kiara, Roni, and Ruben (manager) really took care of us for the night and made this an incredible night to remember. The food was excellent and with some coordination from Peter at The James, the staff helped create a very memorable and happy surprise. The patio seating is really... More
