Crap gazpacho arrived without the crab. French fries overcooked. Price to quality ratio is low. The beach resto is closed for dinner. Why can't we eat there for dinner?

The setai is wonderful, the place is spectacular for a night out, food is fantastic and their miami spice menu is ridiculously good with their selection of wine paring. Will come back!

The atmosphere is really relaxing, the service impeccable and the food great. We had a drink at the Setai before dinner in the outside area and we really appreciated the calm and elegance of this hotel. The restaurant maintains the same style. It absolutely deserves a visit!!

The Setai offers the best fancy brunch on South Beach by far. The variety of starters, entrees and desserts is absolutely fantastic and one the best ones I have ever experienced.

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

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
