Cozy Outdoor Seating

Plenty of outdoor tables, replete with fire pits and umbrella coverage make for an inviting venue. Drinks are reasonably well made, albeit hotel-expensive, and the cigar offerings are suitable for most tastes.

My family booked a reservation 6 weeks in advanced and we could only get the 10AM service because everything else was booked. But to be 100% honest with you, the 10AM was perfect. We had a group of 9 (including the children) and it was not busy at all. We were seated right away and we were given a seat... More

Thanks for writing your review, and as I mentioned in my correspondence to you, I am terribly sorry about your friend's allergic reaction and that we somehow missed this for her. As I said, our Director of Restaurants left you a voicemail to discuss the situation with you. He will try you again today but if you have a moment,... More

Beautiful room, great service, great people watching. Stepping into this beautiful room is like stepping back in time. Drinks are not cheap but they are masterfully blended and not watered down like in some Hotel bars.

So glad to know that you joined us for cocktails amongst the fire pits and cozy seating in front of The Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Golf Club. This has become a great gathering place to sit back and enjoy conversations with friends or family while sipping on a beverage of your choice. On weekends, there is entertainment as well. The...

Part of a conference lunch buffet but very happy with healthy options. Salad options was to everyone's likings.

We had a delicious lunch there! We had just gone to the Dali Museum and were walking downtown. Since many of the wedding guests were staying at the Vinoy, we thought we would have lunch there. Two of us ordered the grouper sandwich and it was so, so delicious!

We chose the outside restaurant upstairs near the pool. The courtyard was simply too hot! Our lunch was terrific. My sandwich was a turkey wrap with REAL turkey. I can't eat processed food so I was grateful. There were strawberries and melted brie cheese with greens. But be careful. They also added a pepper jack cheese that had quite a... More

Nice to be able to sit on chaise loungers and couches outside, under the palms and the stars. Good selections of liquors. Attentive service. Walk over from Beach Ave. for a quieter, more upscale scene.

The Vinoy Hotel dates way back and its charm has been kept. Excellent food -- we were on a tour so menu choices were limited. Everybody in the group of 3-4 tables liked everything. One wrong note is picky -- we ordered a Sangria from the bar. It was awful -- they put BRANDY in it. NOT a light fruity... More

This is on of my favorite places simply because of the size and layout. There are few architects who grasp the concept of scale to make an impression, but whoever laid out this room nailed it. As far as dining her, I've been here 4 times. The staff is great, especially the bartenders. All in all I've been pleased with... More
