“Good meal each visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Whisk is consistently good. Yes, the parking is a problem - as it is almost everywhere in Miami, and the service could be better - again, as is true of most places in Miami - but the food is tasty, artful, satisfying, and fun for a night out with friends. The bacon wrapped dates, fried green tomatoes, fried chicken, turkey/cran salad are all good. My shrimp and grits were almost perfect but could have used a little more salt and seasoning. The waiter on our last visit was friendly if a little scattered. Overall, a good experience.

“Great little gem in South Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Ok. Here goes. If your looking for a neat little nooky place for a satisfying gourmet meal then Whisk is your place. Start with the appetizer of dates or fried green tomatoes unless a bbq quail suits your fancy. For an entree I had the shrimp and grits with cremini mushrooms. Great flavor and texture to this dish made me overlook the size of the shrimp which should be a little bigger. My wife enjoyed the vegetable platter which had tomatoes and a host of other delectable vegetables. The entrees list is chocked full of different items to suit whatever you are looking for. They only take reservations if you have a party of six and the place is not that big so consider yourself warned. Nice wine list although I could enhance it so much more. The beers offered are varied and interesting. I recommend Whisk in South Miami wholeheartedly.

“Shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Tracy and I visited this little restaurant in south miami for he first time. We've had a few recommends from friends and family members.

It always looks busy and we hate busy. But... We got in at 7 pm, got a table in 5 minutes and thought, this was easy. The wine recommendation from our waitress was excellent, Italian red. Light and dry. Just the way I like it.

We ordered fried green tomatoes for an app. Tomato was fresh and hardy. The breaking was crispy and savory, a delight.

For dinner I ordered the shrimp and grits. It was a bit spicy which is a nice addition to the savory dish. The grits were not too cheesy and the shrimp were almost crunchy, delicious,

Tracy ordered the seared beef with rice and spinach. The beef was cooked right and tender. And the rice almost crispy, also delicious, and worth a try. Tracy felt the spinach was a bit too buttery. But still a very nice dish.

We skipped dessert but the selections looked uniquely exquisite and will probably try one next time we are in. Which we will.

We were in and out in 1:15 minutes. Our server was delightful and available at all times.

This was a nice find near us. We will come back. Soon,

“Great Lunch Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We were looking for a place to get lunch after spending the morning at the Fairchild Tropical Garden and before heading to the airport and thanks to TA we found this place. We also managed to get the last parking spot in the lot so didn't have the experience others note here about parking problems. I ordered the fried chicken and spinach salad which was very good. The salad dressing it came with was nice and light and not overpowering. The fried chicken was a good combination of crispy yet juicy. My husband had a fried grouper sandwich which was also quite good. We got a side order of cornbread to eat on our flight home and that didn't disappoint either. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful (and cute). The wine he suggested was also delicious. We feel very fortunate to have happened upon this place out of the blue.

“you can't go wrong with a lunch at Whisk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

People from Coral Gables and South Miami flock to Whisk for lunch on a daily basis. The food is awesome. What detracts from Whisk is that the parking is a challenge. They have a nice bar and the staff is well trained. The menu has a wide variety with a southern flair.. Everyone loves Whisk so you will find something you love there. If you are in a hurry at lunch Whisk has take out as well. Enjoy.
