Excellent as always. Came here for happy hour- you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Buffalo fish wings, crab cake sliders, oyster sliders, watermelon and pickle salad- all great. They have outdoor seating and their large windows open completely. Service was quick. They should also be commended for their safety protocols and precautions during this pandemic time- the staff all have masks that actually fit them so they aren’t fiddling around and touching their faces the whole time. We saw our waiter change gloves multiple times and they give you hand sanitizing wipes at the table. This is more than many other restaurants and was much appreciated. Go here!

My wife and I had lunch here again last Friday...the front of house seemed a bit short-staffed, but the folks who were on duty knocked it out of the park for us. The manager/host seated us right away (we had a reservation), he got us water, took our order and ensured all was well with us as he continued to greet other guests, etc. The fried whole fish is still the best in Miami Beach...perfect with a bottle of Chablis on a Friday afternoon. Thank you! See you again real soon--cheers!

I’m a big fan of Stiltsville. The food this particular evening, though, had several surprising flaws. The entre octopus dish had one median sized tentacle and mostly greens, too many plantains, and 2 small slices of sausage. Poor value when the octopus was supposed to be the core of the dish.
The seafood soup was watery and unsatisfying.
The conch fritters tasted and felt more like hush puppies. What happened to the conch?
The lemonade was great.
Sorry about the negative comments. Please stay on your game. Your reputation is too strong to get cocky.

Another fantastic Miami Spice dinner, the best thing about it was that our waitress was fabulous and she informed us that on Wednesdays the highly addictive fried chicken is half off!!! Stiltsville, we will be seeing you soon!

We were here for a birthday and without my knowledge the waitress gave the birthday girl a complimentary dessert. Also, the waitress ViVi, was very knowledgeable about the menu from the wines to the numerous amount of entrees. Would highly recommend

WOW! I came here last year for a Miami Spice dinner and was not disappointed, I wasn't sure what to expect this time around since there's been added stress with this Covid-19 craziness, but they hit it out of the park again!!! Their fish dip is fabulous and they make the best housemade chips to go with it, I would go back just to eat the dip...We also really enjoyed the octopus, it has now moved up to my number 1 spot for Octopus that i've tried around Miami as well as all over the world where i've eaten octopus. But, the most fantastic thing we had that evening, hands down, was the fried chicken! Holy smokes, i'm not usually a fan of fried chicken but it's definitely the best i've ever had and i'm planning on going back this weekend to have more of everything =)

For the most part, our food was quite good. Very nicely presented. It was hard for the food to overcome the service lapses however. The server was nice enough and knew his stuff but for 30 minutes to pass between table visits is unforgiveable. One of my guests actually told the server she was going to the bar for her next drink because she really wanted it in a reasonable timeframe. Automatic grats on a party of 6 kind of ticked me off after that type service. I think they could do better, I will chalk it up to having been closed for so long, maybe?

Sarah was an amazing server. It’s obvious the owner/management cares enough to train and set the example for their staff here. From the moment we walked in, the communication was there, from determining how to best seat us, then explaining the updated procedures due to pandemic, etc...
The manager checked in with us unobtrusively during the meal and at one point when just looking around the space, the bartender noticed and came over to make sure all was good.
All this before we mention how much we loved the food. Sarah walked us through our initial menu choices which helped us make a couple changes that suited what we were actually looking for.

It’s a casual space with great food and top notch service

I had an allergic reaction to my stupid masks and had to leave due the hives I developed... yeah masks can give you hives
I’ve been here before and I left $20 on the table we left before we ordered anything but it was always good in the past so this review is giving them the benefit of the doubt and from good past experiences

The food was amazing, but I think in regards to the amount of food you receive for the price paid, it’s not worth it. This is definitely a restaurant you would need to do 3 courses and then some to be filled, because the food portion is so so small. Yes it’s normal to have small portions at this type of restaurant, but these are tiny tiny.

Had a great meal here. Highly recommend the cobia appetizer- comes sashimi style with a delicious sauce and some popcorn bits which were surprisingly delicious. Portion size was generous for entrees. Staff was incredibly professional with the COVID19 restrictions and made patrons feel safe and respected. Drinks were great and make sure you get the grilled Swiss chard if you’re into greens.

The only downside we had reservation but table was not ready when we got there for around 40 min, and we did not get our patio table that we had reserved in reservation. However, the food made up for it for the most part. We got the large tackle box and fried chicken. Sooooo good! Also some bok choy. Cocktails were good. Key lime pie is worth getting. Overall good food and cocktails...would def come back here.

First time at Stiltsville for a meal. Service was attentive and helpful. Food and drinks were outstanding with excellent presentation. We had the fresh catch of the day (“triple tail” which we were told is in the snapper family) and seared tuna with jasmine rice and bok choi, both of with were wonderful. We appreciated a visit by the manager to ensure our experience was satisfactory. Certainly would return.
