The Forge restaurant is home of the #1 steak in America and one of the world's finest wine cellars. In addition to our five dramatically elegant dining rooms, the Wine Cellar and the Forge Bar, we invite you to visit our adjoining nightclub, Jimmy'z at The Forge and The East Room at The Forge, the greatest private event space in Miami.
Boasting unparalleled food, service and ambience--on top of receiving countless awards and accolades--The Forge has most recently been awarded the prestigious 2004 Five Star Diamond Award issued by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences.
Great Food/Better Experience – I just went with my husband and his cousin for the very first time. The food was amazing (as was, of course, the wine), but the decor and the service helped make it a magical night. Enormous murano glass chandeliers, beautiful panelling on the walls, mirror backed chairs - it is all very "Miami Beach," but not in a vulgar off-putting way. Our server was very attentive (as was the entire wait staff), but not intrusive. He comically nudged me to slow down on the best focaccia I've ever had so as not to ruin my phenomenal meal - and he was right! Now, the Forge does not come cheap, so I will not be back next week. BUT I will definitely be back for my birthday or perhaps our anniversary.
Super! – A client of mine actually took me here last night. Even though we talked business, it was really one of the best nights out I have had in a while. I loved their food. I love the atmosphere. And the service was simply fabulous. I've heard that their meats are great (my client got a steak and loved it), but I was in the mood for seared tuna (what can I say, I'm a sushi type of gal!) and it was fantastic! Oh, and get the calamari salad for an app if your looking and like seafood. The inside is really beautiful. Will be back soon. I'd definitely recommend for romance, business, or a lady's night out!
Great food. Great Service! – We had a great time at The Forge last weekend. The art at this place is so unique, then you sit down and the food and service is even more unique. I had to try the lamb chops because our friends had raved about it and they were right! Even getting a glass of wine was different and fun. Would highly highly recommend... Prices not bad either! Must have brought them down since they reopenned...
Wonderful dining experience... – I took my wife here last Saturday. We had heard so much about the renovations and the reopening and since we used to like it there before we wanted to see what the "new" Forge would be like. Our experience was really wonderful. We shared the beef tataki as an appetizer and it was exquisite. I had the churasco steak and my wife had the duck. Both were amazing and actually the prices were much lower than I remembered at the old Forge. My wife could not stop talking about how she had never had duck that good. We did not wait long at all. The server and hostess were extremely knowledgeable and down to earth. It was also really nice to be able to try out different wines with the new wine machines they have as opposed to having to order a bottle of one wine. I'd highly recommend. We are going back next week with our friends...
Bottom of the Rung – A bad experience from the beginning to the very end. The wait was 1 hour and 20 minutes (we had a reservation and arrived on time) and the hostess wasn't even apologetic (she was actually rude). The cocktail menu was interesting and the drink prices were reasonable for the beach ($12 for a goose and soda) but the bartender was so arrogant it made me sick to my stomach. It took 35 minutes for him to acknowledge my presence and take our order. I actually had my wife place the order because he wouldn't look at me. As far as the food, anyone who has a half way decent pallet (I'm not a professional food critic but I have been to enough restaurants to know good food) should agree that the food is below average. And, if you are looking for a "steak" restaurant you would be better served going to Outback Steakhouse for the price. I don't mind spending money for a good steak, but if that's what you are looking for, then go to Prime 112.
Most Overrated Restaurant in Miami Beach – I live in Miami Beach and went to this supposed Beach "institution" and it was the worst dinning experience in my life. We were told our table was not ready and to wait at the bar, so we did. Thirty minutes later we were still waiting for a bartender to take our drink order. After 45 minutes I asked the hostess for an update and she said the table would be ready momentarily. Finally, before nearly leaving, we were seated, one hour and thirty minutes later (I wish I was kidding). To summarize the dinning experience, the food was average and overpriced. The lobster and jelly sandwich was average and my filet mignon was horrible. What really made the night a disaster was the staff, from the hostess (stuck up) to the bartender to the waitress, everyone was rude, obnoxious and acted like their sh*t didn't stink I will never go back.
The Forge is on top of its game! – I too thought The Forge was never going to reopen. But to our surprise not only did it reopen but it reinvented itself. Not much is the same other than the first class food and service. The new Forge has a menu that even my friends can afford. I kept hearing about this wine machine... not sure what they call it but it's really cool. You get a prepaid credit card, a nice glass and access to very expensive bottles of wine. You actually use an Apple iTouch to tell the machine what wine you want. It's crazy and fun at the same time. Overall I would give it a 4.5 out 5. Always room to grow.
terrible restaurant – TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE. THE PLACE IS PRETTY BUT THAT'S IT. THE HOSTESS WAS RUDE. OUR WAITER JUST LIKED TO TALK AND WAS INTRUSIVE. HE SPILLED A DRINK ON ONE OF MY GUESTS AND SAID SORRY 'IF YOUR PURSE IS STAINED WE WILL BUY YOU A NEW ONE". HOW ABOUT BUY HER A DRINK. THE MENU HAS NO POINT. IT SEEMS TO BE DIFFERENT JUST TO BE DIFFERENT. I ORDERED THE SUPER STEAK WHICH I USED TO LOVE AT THE "OLD FORGE". I ORDERED IT RARE AND IT WAS JUST WAY CHARRED ON THE OUTSIDE, ALL I TASTED WAS CHARRRED MEAT. THE DESSERT WHICH THE WAITER SUGGESTEDS WAS AWFUL, AND WHEN WE TOLD HIM THAT HE SAID OH!! WE COMPLAINED TO A MANAGER TELLING HIM HE SPILLED A DRINK ON US AND MAYBE THEY CAN TAKE OFF THE DESSERT WE DIDNT EAT OR ENJOY. I WILL NEVER GO BACK.
