Description: From the man who brought Miami the celebrated cuisine at A Fish Called Avalon for nearly a decade comes Quinn’s, one of Miami's up and coming seafood favorites. Award-winning Chef/Proprietor Gerry Quinn is well known, well loved, and his culinary finesse has transformed a visit to the bustling Ocean Drive into an absolute treat. Quinn is dedicated to utilizing only the freshest available ingredients- from pristine seafood to just picked native farm produce. Cleverly redefining “local flavor”, the beloved chef fuses old-Florida style seafood concepts with progressive global trends. The result is a South Beach seafood institution in-the-making.

Had dinner seated on outdoor terrace. Great mojitos, friendly wait staff, excellent food. A great place to take in the scene in South Beach, would definitely go here again.

“Great Location Food Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Let's cover the highlights first. Outstanding location and the sunset fire dance was impressive. Service was good. However, keep in mind that this is a resort restaurant so prices are pretty steep. We had four plus a 3 year old who dined with a couple of drinks and it was $166 including tip which was added automatically. The fish tacos were nothing special. The conch chowder was outstanding.

If you have had a long day around the pool this place is perfect but if you are going just for the food there are better places on Marco.

“Perfectly done”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

dinner for two on the terrace July, 2014. breezes off the water cool the terrace off nicely and seemed to keep the bugs away. service was excellent and the flavors were the best we had on this trip. started with the bam bam shrimp - amazing collection of flavors with some smoke and some sweetness. Also had the ceviche - strong but perfect citrus flavors and didn't need any crackers or chips - just eat with a fork. I had the filet with lobster mashed for entree - perfectly cooked and juicy. they also have very good mojitos. Highly recommended for the food and the people watching.

“GREAT FOOD & SERVICE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were waliking down the strip and stopped in to "borrow" some air conditioning....we ended up having dinner. Great food & service from Pubeo (I think that was his name) and also was given a tour of the hotel by the guy at the front desk (forgot his name,,,7/4/14 evening after fireworks). He told me so much about the history of the place. Overall, a pleasant surprise and great ending to a great day!

“Quinn's the best service, food, and drinks ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I would highly recommend this restaurant! The atmosphere is awesome and the staff is amazing! Our waiter's name was Willy and he was fantastic! He knew the menu very well and had recommendations that blew us away! He even hailed a cab for us and that is no easy task on a Friday night in south beach when it's raining :-)

We had mojito's to start one mango and one watermelon made with fresh local fruit and they were the bomb! They also brought fresh bread and strawberry butter. Then we ordered the bam bam shrimp appetizer and that was incredible! For our meals... lobster and sea bass. The lobster was local and fresh and the best tasting... totally blew us away. Although we were stuffed by this time we just had to share the fresh key lime pie. OMG! outta this world. They make everything from scratch and all of their ingredients are from local sources.
It is a higher price than what you would pay at a chain... but let me tell you it is WELL worth it! Especially for the area.
One note: they include the tip on the final check. We didn't know that and left quite a large tip for Willy. He pointed that out to us and we told him we still wanted to give him that extra tip.
Anyway, I cannot say enough about how AMAZING Quinn's is and Willy!
