Good food, way too much attitude.... – Went to eat at DiVito's last night. We had an early reservation, because we had somewhere to be at 7:30 p.m. Arrived at 5:25 p.m. for a 5:30 p.m. reservation. We were told that we would need to sit at the bar for another 15 minutes. When questioned about this they said they would seat us when they were "ready for us". They did not seat us until 5:45. At this point someone came to get us to seat us outside. We didn't want to be seated outside. He said he would "see what he could do". The restaurant was, as far as we knew, empty. He came back and took us upstairs where two other couples were already seated. Even though we'd been cooling our heels at the bar for over 15 minutes. We were seated at a tiny table. At this point we were so hungry I didn't care. The service was average, the food was good. My husband had Kobe steak which was $25 per ounce. It was delicious. Toward the end of our meal they lead another party through the upstairs area and were planning to seat them outside. The woman announced "first you give us the worst table in the restaurant. Now you try to seat us outside.". The man yelled "that's it, we're out of here. This restuarant is empty. And I'm going to call Danny Divito and tell him about you" indicating the hostess who had made us wait and then forgotten about us.
We won't be going back. I can do without the pretensious South Beach cooler than thou attitude. It is, ultimately, just a GOOD restaurant.
AVOID – We went here for NYE. We were very disappointed with the service and meal. Our dinner was $250 each person plus $25 extra for each glass of champagne to toast at midnight. It was supposed to be a 5 course meal. They forgot to bring us 2 of the courses and by the time our main course came it was 1 am. We sat down at 9:30pm. They did not even bring us drinks until we were sitting for about an hour at the table. They tacked on 20% for tip already on our bill. This kind of thing is unacceptable for such an expensive meal. We did not even get half of it! The steak we got was good but the meal was not worth the $800 bill for 2 people. We were really let down by this place. Unorganized and overpriced New Years Dinner. Maybe if the service was better and we actually got 5 courses we would not have such a bad review on this place.
Danny DeVito's Italian chophouse finds the comic genius lending his name to serious dining in a beachfront setting. – In Short
Celebrity owners bring in diners, but quality eats keep guests coming back for more. Rustic brick walls mesh well with invitingly modern glam décor. Raw bar staples and antipasti dishes open the palate for huge pasta and steakhouse entrées that are bigger than DeVito himself. The $295 Kobe Flight can feed an army with three choice cuts of international beef, while thriftier diners can dig into meatball sliders, lobster risotto, or grilled swordfish.
great for birthday party – Went to SoBe with some friends and was recommended Devito's for the b-day celebration. While the food was good the desserts are over the top and has to be seen and tasted. the banana zeppole and cheesecake lollipops cotton candy was amazing.
Danny Devito and partners bring Hollywood to Miami's Ocean Drive with their traditional Italian Chop House restaurant featuring an upscale atmosphere. – In Short
Inside the two-story posh Italian eatery, locals are transported to the 1940s Hollywood as lipstick-red Venetian chandeliers, oversized booths and green walls make up the interior.

Try popular signature dishes including Salmone Al Tartufo: wild salmon with truffled honey mustard, fennel and pomegranite for $34 or the Linguine Ai Fruitti De Mare: Half-lobster, shrimp, clams, mussels, squid, tomatos and focaccia crostini for $44. Locals can also dine outdoors and request a private cabana. Stop by the 40s-style restaurant that combines a classic contemporary twist on traditional Italian decor.
