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.

“If not for the service...”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

Quinn's is a highly rated steak & seafood restaurant on just about every site. The staff is very accommodating on checking in for your reservation and the outdoor seating with heaters is wonderful even in mid February. It is the place to people watch, but the attention to service and detail by the wait staff diminishes dramatically. The food is exceptional, but the waiters attempt to direct your choices to the most expensive options. With 18% gratuity automatically added to the bill, you can see why. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, with dinner for 5 (3 cocktails, seafood appetizer platter & 1 dessert) coming in at $500! If the service was more attentive, it would clearly have been worth it. I do not believe in having to ask for water glasses to be refilled, at least not 4 times during our meal. And having a steak entry served cold is poor form for this class of a place. The swordfish was slightly overlooked but not enough to return, the sea bass & lobster tail where great, as was the appetizer platter. The Key lime pie was a perfect finish to the meal, but the coffee was delivered 10 minutes later and refused. There are many other restaurants in this area, may be worth trying them first!

“Great, Relaxed Time”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

South Beach restaurants, on the strip, are push and all seem to have the exact same food and beverage. This is an oasis amongst those. With special items, like bang bang shrimp and real fresh mojitos. They have no one hawking the menu out front, but the outdoor seating is comfortable and gives more room than the others. Inside is spacious and well decorated. We had a party of 40 and it felt like we had the place to our selves. The owner came over several times to ensure all was good. They have the best key lime that I have ever had.

“Perfect”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Quinn's is an exceptional dining experience-great service and ambiance. The four of us had multiple dishes-all fabulous. The absolute freshest seafood and ingredients. One of the best restaurants we have enjoyed in the last 10 years. Very nice interior but not stuffy.

“Excellent Food, Service, and Location”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

My husband and I stayed in South Beach for a night before a cruise in January, and ended up at Quinn's for dinner because they were the only people who didn't accost us as we were walking down the street to find a restaurant. It ended up being an excellent choice! We split a Caprese Salad for an appetizer, and it was delicious! I can't remember what my husband had for his entree, but I do remember him enjoying it! I had the Filet, which was perfectly done. This is a great choice if you're looking for somewhere nice to eat on South Beach!
