I do not understand the hype of this place! Went for the Sunday brunch and had it. The selection was poor, service was mediocre at best and the hotel was just average in my opinion. The food was all fatty and sugary. There were no real healthy options that I saw. The champagne is unlimited and they serve Tattinger's, which... More

The food was amazing. We ordered the 32oz rib eye steak that was $150, and it was all worth it. Cooked and seasoned to perfection, and we also ordered langoustines. They were amazing.

You mostly want to eat here on a day when you want to feel totally relaxed and calm. Food is OK but expensive. We prefer the inner courtlyard for lunch or cocktails, as it's even more peaceful.

Most South Beach restaurants try too hard but they fail on either service, or the food itself. Not at The Setai where you get consistent good service and delicious food. The staff is very freindly

What can you say about perfection? We were celebrating a special occasion and this could not have been more perfect. South Beach tends to have a lot of noisy restaurants. But I asked the concierge at our hotel (a different one) and he recommended The Restaurant. We sat at a table adjacent to the open kitchen. Even with the proximity... More

Went here for our a meal on the final night of our stay in miami, the food was absolutely delicious, top quality on par with Michelin star restaurants we had been to in London. I understand from our waiter that the head chef used to work at a three star Michelin restaurant in Monte Carlo. Would highly recommend if you... More

Hoping they go back to the old menu. It's mediocre at best. I miss the Thai inspired menu. The food was delicious . Not so anymore.

Discovering a gem that is not on everyone's radar is a special delight. My wife and I happened upon this option whilst searching for a Sunday buffet brunch in Miami. Turns out that this Thai restaurant at the Setai hotel delivers an extensive range of buffet options, washed down with Tattinger champagne whilst you listen to live jazz. Service was... More

My husband and I ate here one night spontaneously and all I can say is wow! We sat outside and had a beautiful table with such an amazing ambience. We ordered a 3 course meal which was fantastic and the server was very friendly and helpful. To top the night off the valet staff arranged their hotel car to take... More
