We went for lunch and wanted to enjoy a lunch outdoors, if you don’t like hot/humid weather don’t bother sitting outside. The food was delicious and the drink your final wish was a perfect sweet gin and lavender fuse.

We were not very happy with the tables the hostess offered, but she did try to accommodate us, that's not a problem... However, the waitress was obviously not having a good day, was not polite, got our drinks order wrong and our appetizer order as well. The drinks were not good, specially for a restaurant of this caliber. Not sure if we will be back.

This restaurant is so famous here in Miami that I would never believe what my friend and I went through. First we did a reservation it was raining so we could seat were we wanted to, second the service was horrible we went to celebrate her birthday first the server didn’t want to serve her alcohol which I understand she was turning 21 and we wanted to celebrate it there. But I am old enough to drink and the manager came to our table saying that they couldn’t serve my table alcohol. That was resolved second they took forever to bring the food. Third I had to ask her for the birthday candle even though I told her it was her bday when I reserve so with that said I could surprised her. When she bring the desert all the plates where still in the table so we had no space to put the cake. We help her picked up the table after she turn on the candle again and she left. She didn’t sing her happy birthday I had to do that by myself. The food is as aight a little price for half a chicken and a quarter of salmon with mash potatoes. It went how I wasn’t expecting. I would never go there ever I do not recommend this restaurant is a waste of money and the service is aight.

We had the best time! I wish I knew our servers name because he was outstanding! We sat right by the window with an amazing view of the famous Miami skyline.

We had the Whole Fried Snapper and the 8oz Filet. All were amazing. Best meal I have ever had.
The bar drinks were top notch as well. I have ZERO complaints.

Our server was very nice and gave great recommendations. The food was very flavorful. However, we requested outdoor sitting and they proceeded to take us there but was radio in no longer accepting outdoor sitting. But the min we sat inside we saw 2 other parties being escorted outside. We were not happy about that. Other than that, everything else was good.

Era el cumpleaños de mi pareja y llame al restaurante con antelación pero dejaron pasar la fecha por alto y no tuvieron en cuenta esa fecha tan importante para nosotros. La comida se demoró mucho y estuvimos esperando demasiado para una comida con un precio tan elevado

The food was delicious as usual even though it was a shortened menu. The music was too loud. Customers were in shorts & flip flops. Not the elegant Rusty Pelican I’m accustomed to.

Do not sit outside on the first floor if you are afraid if Iguanas!! There was a sign that said “please don’t feed the iguanas” there were two huge ones just crawling around freely under the tables etc.. when people noticed them they started running away. Lol
The food was very good. The service was poor. We waited almost 15min before someone came over to take our drink order... after I stopped a manager that was walking by. Thank God the food was disappointing like the service and the mimosas that had no taste. The view was great though.

Usually one of my favorite Sunday brunch go to’s in Miami was disappointing. The food and service were good but the table was right near the entrance with people walking in and out by us constantly and the room temperature hot and uncomfortable with no breeze. I understand the seating due to COVID restrictions but expected a table outside so will definitely request the outside patio in the future.
