it is the worst – hi, everyone, last night(march 05-09) i went out with my father and some friends. as it was my father's first day in miami, he told us to go to the beach and have dinner, so we went to miami beach, and walking around we found this restaurant, it looked very nice, so we decide to got in, then the waitress came and told us that the food was 50% off, so we ordered, then when the waiter came with the bill i found that they had not given me the discount so i asked for it, and he just told us, that the discount was includes and it was nothing that we could do.
be careful dont go to that place, the food is so disgusting and also so expensive
Best crab cakes! – I really enjoyed the food my crab cake was very fresh and savory, my salad was great, I had chicken as my main dish and it was great. Not crazy about the dessert. The restaurant was to dark would have liked a little more light
AVOID, AVOID, AVOID! – I called at 8:00 to request an 8:30 seating and my guest and I were immediately accommodated; in retrospect the fact the restaurant had tables available on a Friday night in a popular area should have been a warning?
The dinner started when I requested the wine list and was told ?we?re out of white wine?. I was a bit confused thinking the waiter meant they were out of specific brand, but no, he repeated, ?we?re out of white wine?. He then proceeded to inform us that they had one off-brand chardonnay and sauvignon blanc but that was it (the problem lay in that the menu is definitely geared towards white wine). Ok, I thought, we order what they have (the chardonnay) and move on.
Appetizers came out (warm goat cheese and a calamari ?tower?) and were ok, fried (and therefore tasted as undistinguished as every other fried food) but ok. The accompanying sauces were equally nondescript and tasted bland (off-the-supermarket-shelf bland).
Main courses came out (scallops and blackened mahi-mahi) and had been cooked to death. The mahi-mahi literally required a knife to cut as there was NO WAY you were going to get through that thing with a fork - it was COMPLETELY devoid of moisture, ditto on the scallops. Our waiter came by to ask how things were and we told him the food had been overcooked. He apologized and took the food, 90% of which remained on the two plates, and asked if we wanted desert . We said no and he brought us the check stating that the manager ?had given us a 10% discount?. I found it ironic that the discount equaled the amount we had eaten!
I decided if the manager was so unconcerned that he couldn?t visit our table I wasn?t going to complain - I was simply going to voice my opinion on-line. We paid the bill and left.
If you want superficiality (bad food in nice surroundings) come to Ocean 510.
If you want good food go elsewhere.
Your dinner club one stop shop! – Wow South Beach! Vegas on the water! I work with a major production/promotions company based out of L.A, so totally clueless where to go in South Beach, wanting something else besides Lincoln Road that we had everyday getting out of the convention. I came on here to find somewhere we could have our company dinner, and saw the revues for 510 Ocean. We booked a party last minute ( 2 days in advance) my bad!! They found space for us, got us a prefixed menu that was amazing, and set up a extra bar just for our party outside. We were asking after dinner where the cool clubs were that we could get into and realized we were at one, this place attracts so many good looking models and locals, I did'nt think that I was in cheesy miami anymore! With live music and a d.j, we stayed till 5am not 2 like boring Cali! I heard that Miami had bad food and service, but this little hidden secret is the only exception, see ya next year 510 Ocean!
Outstanding – I think this is one of the best restaurant in miami. Good food and good music. Our server susan recommended the pork tenderloin and it was outstanding.
A delicious experience! – I heard many great things about 510 Ocean and had to have dinner there while in Miami. It completely exceeded my expectations. The seven of us each ordered a different entree, plus many appetizers. We were equally impressed by everything. We particularly enjoyed the creative Sobe tropical salad, the sweet mashed potatoes, and the amazing chocolate decadence. With a combination of the impeccable service, relaxing ambience, and eclectic music, 510 Ocean has everything for a great evening out.
Seductive, lounge-style restaurant in the Bentley Hotel dishes out innovative dishes with far-flung inspirations. – In Short
This restaurant's decor pays homage to its beach location: A glowing amber column, backlit bar and candles bring to mind the sun, while blue lights pooling on the walls echo the ocean theme. As expected, the menu has many "surf" options, such sesame-crusted ahi tuna, but there's also "turf" dishes, like the filet mignon au poivre. A DJ spins beats ranging form jazz to hip-hop--and diners often begin dancing as the night progresses.
Best Bachelorette ever! – My girlfriends brought me down to miami for my bachelorette party. We went to dinner at three different places and the only one that stuck out was 510 ocean. The staff was young, fun and very hospitable and the room had a great vibe! They set up a beautiful table in their courtyard for us and the food was amazing. (Far better than what I would expect from a place that is "hip") It was a saturday night and we were suppose to go clubbing but we ended up staying until close. It was definately the best night we had of all three. They really took care of us that night and i would reccomend 510 ocean to anyone but especially for bachelorette parties.
Tasty food and excellent service! – In a sea of restaurants with mediocre food and terrible service, this place was a pleasant surprise. I travel to South Beach quite a bit for business and have been to most of the ?hot spots? both on and off the beach. I was looking for something a little ?off the beaten path? and my hotel recommended 510 Ocean. Man, was it different. First of all, the service is actually hospitable and professional! And second, the food was excellent! I had the crab cake to start, which was very good, and then the filet as an entree. The filet was cooked perfectly (the waiter actually listened to what I said) and the mashies were heavenly. My date doubled up on a tuna app and a tuna entree. She was very happy with the appetizer and I tasted the entree -- and it was fantastic too! I passed on desert, but my friend had some sort of chocolate cake, which was very good. Overall, it was a very fun night! I highly recommend this place to anyone who is sick of the all surface, no substance restaurants that litter Ocean and Collins!
An ok dinner while visiting South Beach. – Vacationing in Miami, we heard great things about 510 Ocean. We were told that they were totally booked, but the amount of people in the restaurant would have said otherwise. We had dinner in the restaurants private courtyard, which was very pretty. The service was nice and the food was ok. The check was a little steep, for what we ordered, but overall it was an ok experience. When I return to South Beach ina couple f weeks I will be trying other restaurants.
