Bad Experience – If dining at this restaurant, be sure to request downstairs seating. My husband and I had drinks at the bar prior to dinner and were enjoying the busy Sobe scene, but the hostess then brought us to the upstairs dining room which was dead empty on a Friday night. The appetizers were served so quickly they couldn't have been freshly prepared and our dinner arrived right after our apps were cleared. Now maybe some people would enjoy the quick service, but we were very unhappy with a dinner that lasted under an hour and cost $450. The food was ok at best, but we would not dine at this restaurant again nor recommend to others.
HOT! – What can i say, this is a great place for any occasion. A pit pricey however but the service and food are worth it.
Worst Restaurant for the price – We went to this restaurant for a birthday. We knew it would be pricey and that was fine. We were seated immediately. Our waiter was rude. We asked for about 2-3 minutes to decide what we wanted to eat. He left and did not return for about 25 minutes. Then, when the food did arrive, the chicken was pink. The manager asked how was everything and we told him about the chicken.
He took the chicken to the kitchen and had a server bring back the chicken that our guest had already began eating!
Then, we asked for dessert menus--that took another 20 minutes. When dessert arrived they didn't bring any spoons, and when we asked for spoons they acted as if we were annoying them.
In my opinion, for the low quality of service, and food you are better off going to Pilar, P F Changs, or an American chain. I think that for over $400 we expected good service and great food!
Don't do it!!!
ANOTHER GREAT DAVID MANERO RESTAURANT IS BORN! – I have been a fan of David Manero restaurants for many years now..each one seems to out do the next..Teaming up with Danny Devito in South beach is quite the event for top dining spot in Miami....
My Prime New York Strip was to die for as was my girlfreind's authentic Pope's pasta (yes the only one served at the vatican to numero uno as the menu states)...Service is perfection and the restaurant design is almighty...
Manero's Vic & Angelos restaurants are also my favorites...Can't wait for the new Delray Beach one to open on Atlantic Avenue.. I can taste the coal oven pizza now..
We will be back to Devito over and over..YUMMY!
Maybe the Best Restaurant on the Planet – SImply stated , I enjoyed everything from start to beginning and I was treated right..
Don't miss the lobster bernaise on your steak...or the delicious sides.
Thank 's Danny..
BEST PRIME CHOPHOUSE IN FLORIDA MAYBE ANYWHERE! – I just loved the restaurant on all levels, the service was super, food outrageous and the ambiance was smoking hot.
Kobe steak, Prime Steak Maine Lobsters, and the best pasta and veal on the peninsula..
I'll be back!
GREAT RESTAURANT! – I'm not sure what all of these reviewers are talking about, my opinion of DeVito SB is fantastic! Iam a frequent South Beacher and I have eaten at DeVito numerous times and every time has been fabulous. The Veal is Superb and the lobster Risotto is incredible! Great Cheese! They have a great wine list and the servers are very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine. Maybe these reviews are from people who don't frequent South Beach and don't understand that the party gets started after 9pm so if you want to eat in an empty restaurant you should make a reservation for 7pm and if you want to be part of the hustle and bustle of the party crowd then you have to wait until 9 or 10pm. Also, South Beach is NOT CHEAP, this is Miami, not Des Moines, everything is expensive in South Beach. But the huge portions are worth the price and the wait. Be patient, have a drink at the bar if your table isn't ready, don't make a reservation here if you have to be in and out in 1 hour, b/c its not going to happen. DeVito is a restaurant meant to be enjoyed. My opinion is that this is a great place to eat with fantastic food and fun atmosphere.
The food at Devito's is just NOT good....regardless of price. – We were excited to try Devito's on Saturday Night but unfortunately we were met with utter disappointment.
I knew the meal was going to be overpriced...and that is fine as long as the food is well prepared, flavorful and top notch.
We found the food to average at best and to be honest with you ...this restaurant is all hype and show with very little substance.
Our meal cost $250.00 and food was just NOT good...It was less than average.
We ordered the following:
Meatball (this 10oz meatball for $18 should have been the best meatball of my life or at least in the top 5. The center of the meatball was severely undercooked and mooshy in the center. I wouldn't serve my kids this meatball.
Crispy Calamari Duo ( this was not bad but it was average at best. The calamari was chewy and not tender...the sauce was lacking flavor. You can get better calamari and most raw bars or restaurant chains)
Minestrone (This was good...not great)
Pennoni (basic pasta dish lacking flavor ...you can find a better pasta dish at any local pizzaria)
Fruiti Di Mar (This seafood over pasta dish was also sub-par. The seafood was NOT particularly fresh and the sauce was as plain as a jar of tomato puree. )
Regardless of price I would NEVER eat at Devito' again. We eat at fine restaurants every weekend in South Florida and this is probably one of the worst meals we have had in a long time. ...we were very excited to eat hear but was very disappointed when we left.
We could not recommend anyone wasting their time or money on this restaurant that is all marketing a no substance.
We will stick to our regular Italian stop - Anthony's Runway 84 in Ft. Lauderdale.
Good food for an Arm & a Leg – Shame on me for not looking at the menu before making a reservation. Beware it will cost you $200. per person with one drink and a bottle of water. The food is good, slightly above average. The staff and has their nose so high in the air they can't see the expression on the diners face when they look at the prices on the menu. (A shame because it kept me entertained) I'm from NYC and used to getting ripped off, but this is over the top. The staff is as snooty as Nobu, without the goods to back it up. Sorry Danny, this won't do it for me anymore.
nothing positive to say – From the moment we arrived at the front desk there were problems: I'd made a reservation two weeks in advance for 7 pm having been told that was our only choice because they were all booked up. Imagine my surprise when we were taken up to the second floor and found ourselves the only couple in the room. Part of the SB experience is the crowd and despite my requests to move tables downstairs, they refused. By the way we were a lovely and attractive mother and daughter and unless they're biased in favor of loud and unattractive people, I saw no reason for us to be seated alone for 75% of the evening.
the man at the front desk with the earphone had a huge attitude and I'd have him replaced immediately. As I said to him, you never know who people are so be very careful how you treat them.
The food is all over the place -- a very poor Prime 112 imitation. They're extremely heavy with the salt shaker and nothing really was that good.
The attitude really colored the evening and I would never go back
