going down !!! – What the hell happened to this place..?? This used to be the best restaurant in south Beach a real treat an example for other restaurants.
But they changed the menu. God knows why?? They made it a lot smaller there only about 10 items left. And there where so many good !! dishes on the old menu ! We had some pasta which was like the same as a cheap take out. Even the wine menu and dessert menu became a lot smaller. The only good thing was our waiter, the service was still super. I think it's a real shame for a restaurant like this. It was always packed and gave you a special feeling but the place was almost empty, and gave us a sour taste in our mouth. I hope that will be an eye opener for the management / owner
Please give us back the old DeVito where you didn't mind to wait in line for a table !!!
Used to be my Favorite – Going to De Vito's since they open the Doors we never had a bad Dinner there the Kitchen was superb and it was one of my Favorite Restaurants in Miami.
But that was the past !!! since they changed the Chef the Menu is a Joke for a Classy place like De Vito's, all my Favorites are gone and replaced with a ridicules assortment BS dishes my 17 year Old Son can pull up in his first year of Culinary School .
If you Guys read this Please get your things Together, we used to Love your Place and like to see it back to old Glory and not closing the Doors for Good .
NEW MENU, NEW CHEF=SAVE YOUR MONEY – Devito's was one of the top five places in south beach easily...up until they changed their menu and chef. The new menu is limited (probably 20 items) and is bland. The menu used to be robust, full of steaks, chops, many pastas, and countless items to meet anyones desires. The veal chop used to be the best. Then the management brought in a new "iron chef" and butchered the menu along with the chances of sustaining themselves in south beach. For anyone looking for a good italian, I would suggest prime italian right down the street-devitos is no longer somewhere I would recomend.
Come Hungry – This is the perfect place to go for wine and appetizers!! My girlfiends and I love this place for just that. Reserve a patio table and you can have a blast!!!
There are so many good things on the menu, but the Kobe Carpaccio is OMG!!!
Great food, great service, great location!!
Try it sometime
Great new lunch spot – I have been to Devito's for dinner many times, but was surprised to see they opened up for lunch. Not really knowing what to expect I brought some clients there and was happy with what I found. The sandwiches were great, and as always the apps and salads never disappoint.
The food was really good & my clients enjoyed it. It was perfect for a nice meal without going over the top.
Excellent experience – I went here with a date and was blown away. Very upscale, professional service, and food that was really something special. We shared the Kobe Flight, which was one of the coolest dishes I have ever been served in a restaurant. And the chocolate dessert was equally impressive. Too bad my date didn't compare, at least he had good taste ;-)
best kobe in miami – The Devito south beach is a modern uptown restaurant co-owned by danny devito. This italian restaurant specializes in traditionals and they also have great steak. the kobe beef costs 29 per ounce but is every penny worth it.
Decent food, HORRIBLE service – I've heard of Devito's b4 and have been to Miami a few times. It's regarded as one of the fancier places and I thought I'd try it out on this trip. The Decor is nice and the food was decent, but the service is atrocious. We sat outside and it was one of the colder nights in Miami so it was around 55 degrees so all of the long wait times were made worse by having to wait in the cold. It took a long time for the waiter to take our order, we couldn't figure out who the waiter was cuz a different person kept coming back every time. We ordered 2 diet cokes, one diet coke arrived after the appetizer was done, the 2nd arrived about 5 later. Entrees came soon after. No one came by to ask about our food except for the manager after the appetizer and at that point it was still too early to tell so we said everything is fine. After finishing the entrees it took like 15 mins to get a waiter over to our table to clear it. We ordered desserts earlier in the meal and after the entrees they just brought dessert and disappeared. didn't ask how the food was, didnt give us a chance to order coffee with our dessert. Upon receiving the check they included an 18% gratuity before taxes. I'm used to leaving a nice gratuity especially in a nice place, but usually for parties of 6 or more is it mandatory. Our service sucked and i didnt think 18% was warranted, when i asked to speak to the manager it took him 15 mins to get to our table and then he proceeded to lecture me on customary tipping and included gratuities in the miami area. I proceeded to explain to him that the service sucked and where as b4 speaking to him and receiving the bill i was willing to leave a 5-10% tip, i was at that point only willing to pay for food and that's it. Nice places tend to try to fix mistakes and make people want to come back rather than lecturing customers. HORRIBLE service, mediocre food, DEFINITELY not worth the money.
REAL POWER DINING IN MIAMI BEACH – was at first reluctant to dine at Devito because of the mixed rap given to it by a few reviews, but after I had my first experience there, I was able to quickly discern the truth about this restaurant and separate it from the apparent bitterness about the price of world class dining. Cynics will always abound, but this place is the real deal. The nearly universally acclaimed (i say universally because some deranged writer called it a sports bar because of her lack of exposure to anything else) design of the restaurant speaks volumes about the care an detail of the establishment. The service was exquisite and the general manager treated my party like we were movie stars.
The steak is by far the best I've (including top of the line steakhouses like STK, Peter Luger, BLT Prime) and truly debunked the myth that I had stuck in my head that Prime 112 was the premiere Miami steakhouse. From the extravagant pre-appetizer including chunks of complimentary parmesan reggiano cheese, imported salume, and stuffed pepers all the way to the chocolate flight and san gennaro festival dessert, the dining experience was near perfect. I didn't have the pasta (rumored to be the only brand consumed by the pope) myself, but my wife (who is jewish) never felt closer to the vatican lol. To be able to have a place to get incredible prime Chicago stockyards served on beautiful, sizzling hot skillets along with the best Italian food on the beach is simply mind boggling
Devito surely casts aside the stigma attached to celebrity restaurants and intimidates its competitors out of the water. Devito's success on strip south of fifth is simply revolutionary as evidenced by the fact that many others have tried to imitate its mastery of the Italian chophouse concept and have failed/are failing.
keep up whatever your'e doing!
BEST STEAK AND ITALIAN IN MIAMI PERIOD! – simply a beautiful restaurant where the staff really cares about your experience.. The food by Chef Manfra was cooler than mama could make.. The wine list has great italians on it too .. decor and celeb scene was interesting and magnificent... We were sat next to Anna K and D. Wade..
