    The view is unbeatable. Period. Our waiter was great but: food took almost an hour to come out and some of it didn’t come out at all because they found out almost an hir layer that they didn’t have it (Brussels sprouts). Food was ok but the waiting was just too long. Music was a bit to loud too if you ask me.

    Hostess, very Friendly and attentive Waiter, was Friendly and service was good, second Iced Tea no Lemon, should change Silverware after each Course. Food, very average, Lobster Roll, supposed to be Butter Poached, was straight out of a can, bland, too much Bread. Side of Creamed Corn tasted like Cornbread batter. Presentation of Food nice, Calamari excellent.

    Very disappointed in the way the whole dining experience was. The evening was supposed to be a surprise birthday party for my mother in law. We arrived first and was told that we had to wait for the rest of our party to arrive before we would be seated which ruined the surprise. When we were finally seated the waiter took our drink orders and our dinner order. We asked if bread would be brought to the table and it took awhile before it was brought. One of our party asked if they could get just a plain baked potato and they were told no, that the potatoes were prepared a certain way. I’m sure that the potatoes don’t come to the restaurant prepared like they serve them so I found it very unaccommodating that they wouldn’t do that. After dinner several people ordered coffee and that took awhile to be brought and when it was brought it was served without a saucer and no spoon. I know that these are little things but they all contribute to the entire dining experience. For the price that Rusty Pelican charges I expected much better service and a much more accommodating experience.

    Seafood is below average, lobster had no taste. They advertise “caviar” on the menu, but it’s fake caviar. Was very disappointed with that. Truffle was canned too. We also ordered seafood tower and a few bottles of champagne. Total was over $700. Was it worth it? Absolutely not. Money would be better spent at some Michelin restaurant with better food for the same price.

    Atmosphere was great with views of the water and skyline. Only major complaint was the service, dude came to our table a total of like 4 time over the course of an hour and a half. With the slew of other nice places to eat in Miami, hard to say I’d give it a second chance.

    The place was nice with beautiful scenery and ambiance but the food was way way overvalued. I had a fried rice that came with shrimp and mahi mahi. Barely any shrimp and mahi on it and the rice was still hard which means it was undercooked. It’s not what you should expect from a place that’s so pricey. Had octopus for appetizer which was very good but overall the place is overvalued. I could find way better food in Miami that’s not as pricey. I do not plan on returning food wasn’t worth it.

    It was pretty good cuz of the ambient, the sea view, the attention was excellent but the food wasn't worth the price, I asked for a ribeye 14oz medium rare and I got a medium well, and a taste of burned, I was waiting for something worth the $62..... my wife asked a risotto lonster and shrimp and the rice was uncooked, they fixed it but like I said, for the price you expect excellency and an unforgettable experience... we are not coming back, but we can say we try it
