“Great little restaurant with home style food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I came to this place because of TA's reviews. The parking is a bit of a problem and PLEASE if you drive an SUV, please make sure you do not take 2 parking spots. The parking is limited right in front of the restaurant and I do not like thoughtless drivers.

The food is very good. Great sandwiches. I love the fact that they wrap them in paper and that the bread and the thick sliced bacon are great tasting. Everything is "a la carte" so side dishes are extra. The warm homemade cornbread was tasty. My daughter ordered the Ceviche and she said it was excellent.

The only mishap we had was with our waiter. He floated by he did not seem interested in the table he was taking care of, totally forgot our drinks which the lady that brought our food to the table was nice enough to bring the drinks for us. When we finished eating I was not about to leave without letting our waiter know he forgot our drinks, his response was a not very honest sounding "I'm sorry" and that was it.

I guess when I return, AND I shall return, the food is good, I will not leave without letting the Manager know if I encounter any issues.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The minute you walk thru the door the deliciousness hits you and thats when you realize you're about to be well fed. Its a charming space. Whisk doesn't have a huge lunch menu and I understand why; every menu item (appetizers, salads, sandwiches) is done right. All the components are top notch. Beautifully marinated pork, perfectly fried chicken, beautifully baked bread, amazing sauces, fresh greens and veggies; I could go on and on! Did I mention they have Mason jars of awesomeness for you to drink out of. Wish we had more places like this in Miami.

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile


Not easy to find but we'll worth the search . Located on out of the way street behind the ACE hardware they specialize in gourmet southern comfort with local flare. Place is small and a bit of a wait is probable. They do take reservations. We went for lunch without reservation and were a party of 2 and waited 20 min. Larger paties were waiting 45 min or more.
Food is fresh and local ingredients are the standard . We had brussel sprouts followed by Shrimp and grits and the roast beef sandwhich for our main courses. all the food surrounding us looked wonderful . The dinners looked hearty and the salads were fresh and large .All around great food and good service, definitely worth a try.
This would be a 5 but for the parking. There are 14 spaces on site.we parked around the block at a metered spot.

“chilled water bottle good idea, and option!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

The new thing in restaurants is serving chilled water in a bottle, Free that is !! Whisk charges you .75 cents which is ok if you ordered it yourself, we did not and was not asked what kind we wanted our waiter just brought it to our table and that was it, dont mind paying just want to be asked ! its our option !! lunch was ok, 'brussel sprouts' were ok, not cooked enough and no taste to them. We had the 'burrito' which was good but could of used a little more dressing in it, we like this place and will go again but please just ask us next time what kind of water we would like to drink.

“Good and healthy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Love this little whole in the wall, as soon as you walk inside you smell the great food. So far i have had the buttermilk chicken and spicy beef and they were both excellent for apps i love the dates with bacon wow to die for... the service is good and wait hasn't been long for both times i have been there. Definitely adding Whisk to my favorite spots to eat in Miami
