Description: Poseidon Greek Restaurant & Outdoor Lounge has made his new home in South Beach and now hungry diners who crave the fabulous flavors of Greek ,Mediterranean and seafood cuisine can check out this new eatery.At Poseidon, the chefs follow Hippocrates recommendation that "food be thy medicine," by crafting healthy dishes rather than making popsicles from cough syrup. They sprinkle their recipes with krocus kozanis, a golden Greek spice, and infuses meals with oregano, rosemary, and thyme culled from the Taygetos Mountain of Kalamata. They also import fresh fish from the Aegean Sea before brushing salmon with extra virgin olive oil and tossing pasta with a medley of shellfish. Slick white tables and cool blue walls recall a refreshing day spent among the blue and white abodes lining the Greek shores of the Mediterranean. Prepare yourselves for a culinary journey to Greece through this wonderful experience and taste.... . Plus, with one of the best outdoor dining

“Great Greek food and terrific people-watching”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

I love Greek food, and I live in a part of the country that doesn't offer much of it. So when I was in Miami Beach and strolled passed Poseidon smack in the middle of busy Washington Street, I just had to peruse the menu. The waiter at the outdoor tables said if we came to dinner he'd give us each a free glass of wine -- and when we came back the next night he remembered! I love saganaki so much that I ordered a portion to share with my husband for an appetizer, and then I tried one of five saganakis with extra ingredients as an entree. The regular saganaki was outstanding. The saganaki withe shrimp and feta and tomato sauce was very tasty, but it had nothing to do with what we think of as traditional saganaki. It turns out that saganaki refers to the small pan that something is made in. I learned something! My husband had the bream, which the waiter advised us was the only fish offered that was locally caught, and he absolutely loved it. The waiter did a masterful job of deboning. For dessert, of course we had baklava, which was good but not the best I've ever had. I like it flakier. If you sit at an outdoor table on the sidewalk, the people-watching is awesome -- the Miami Beach bonus!

“Soooooo good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

Decided to eat here after looking for someplace off Ocean Drive. Stumbled upon this place, and was not disappointed.

The staff was very knowledgeable about recommending something to eat. All their products (olive oil, salt, seasonings) are from Greece and not bought locally.

The food was amazing. The friends that I was with still rave about going, and cannot wait to get back to Miami to go again! Thanks for an awesome experience!

“Good Greek Off Beaten Path”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Looked for more reasonably priced options and stumbled upon Poseidon on Washington & 11th in South Beach. Fairly standard Greek restaurant menu. Had the souvlaki and it didn't disappoint. Others had whole sea bass (loved it) and pasta. All good and again, an affordable option away from Ocean Drive.

“Ate there two nights in a row! Fabulous food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

The food was so tasty and fresh. Cooked to order. We tried the mushrooms sautéed with wine and cheese. Also the spanakopita was fabulous. My husband and I shared the chicken Souvlaki, moist and they use all fresh herbs. So yummy we went back the next night. The scallops with spinach were very well prepared. The soups were great too. Prices are fair and the ambience was nice, soft lighting. It was great to be able to hear each other. Will definitely return!
