“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 21, 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

“Very impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

My wife and I wanted to try a new place so we ventured over to Whisk in S. Miami.
At first glance, it would seem how does this place get any business? its on a very small street, the street is actually hidden and there is hardly any parking at all.

Once inside, the atmosphere is very nice. All you hear is people talking and having a nice time. There is a very relaxing feel to the place. I was a bit disappointed at first, as our server seemed to notcare that we had been sitting at the table without being approached for close to 10 mins. This was rather un-easy for me to be honest but my wife kept me calm.

Once the server came over, she was very nice, extremely professional and for sure knew what she was doing. My mood quickly changed and i once again became relaxed. The food was very tasty & fresh. the beers are rather different s they are from different regions & countries, but the server was very helpful and i was very happy with the beer i drank. My wife loved her wine.

I would for sure return to Whisk and i have already recommended it to many friends.

Its a great place to go for a date night for sure.

I say go at it!!!!

“Surpassed expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This place is tucked away off the main roads, but not hard to find. The parking lot is way small for the building, but there is plenty of street and lot parking a quick walk away. We were there just at the start of dinner time and our wait was reasonable, less than 30 minutes, the waits were getting longer. It seemed like its crowded inside, but after we sat it was fine. The tables are not to close together, which is a refreshing change and the ambient noise and music are reasonable. Our server came over quickly and we’d ordered several sides and appetizer and just one entrée to split. The waiter or kitchen took care of pacing the meal out to us so we constantly had new dishes coming out as old ones were empty. They were busy, so this attention to detail was impressive. To the food, they really do hit the mark. Good quality ingredients that are simply prepared and the center points of the dishes and the sauces and dressing is where the creativity shows, very nicely balanced. One point to note, the appetizers are smaller portions than is common, but are priced accordingly. The proportion of the entrée and sides were normal though. When you’re there make sure to get something involving corn, we had cornbread and several cornmeal crusted items and they were sweet and fresh tasting. I hadn’t had any good restaurants experiences in this part of town prior, so in the future I’ll start walking past those others and head straight to Whisk.
