“Exceptionally delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Ice Box is the best restaurant I ate at during my week spent in Miami South Beach. It was so good I returned 4 times. Everything is delicious, especially the curry chicken. For dessert, try the melt in your mouth chocolate truffles. The atmosphere is great, the servers genuinely interested in your enjoyment of the food. Really stands out from the touristic restaurants where prices are inflated and the food experience is deflating.

“Ok food, great desserts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

We had the Ice box burgers for lunch, which were good! But the desserts were even better! Service ok too. Remember that service charge is included here though at most places in Miami Beach!

“Stop by for a bit of cake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Excellent choices (recommend highly either The Bomb or the Pumpkin Butterscotch) with fast and friendly service. You can even get the slices to go right up at the glass case. Just off Lincoln Road and well worth the trip. Excellent Saturday brunch, as well. Vegetarian and Vegan-friendly. Enjoy!

“What a great lunch! (with dessert)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I just had a great lunch on my own in the Ice Box. I had read about it in advance and purposely went there for lunch when I found myself on my own in South Beach. Had the soba noodle salad and really loved it. Well made and with a nice bit of heat to it. I saved room for dessert, of course, since I read that the cakes were famous. I tried a big slab of The Bomb. It had huge layers of chocolate mouse, cheesecake and ganache. Yum. My waitress was also super friendly. A lovely place to people-watch and eat cake (and other things).
