SALT Waterfront Restaurant

Best view of the water in miami A hide a way on virginia key on the way to key biscayne Great food with lots of seafood Best beer prices in town
Just returned from a wedding there and it was a great little site. Once turning into the complex, it was a little hard to find the restaurant among construction and the other buildings, but when we finally did locate it it was a unique little venue. Once inside there is a main fairly sized room that can be set up with tables and chairs. Walking outside the main room, you exit out onto the balcony that overlooks the waterfront and offers a stunning oceanfront view. Don't be too confused if you see signage for the University of Miami because it is housed in a building for the University of Miami School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences. While I don't live in Miami,I think this would be a nice venue for a wedding, baby shower, bridal shower, or other event if you live in the area. Just make sure this is adequate signage to make sure your guests are directed to the right building.
Yes Salt Waterfront Restaurant is a school cafeteria during the day, but is delicious wholesome food nonetheless. Prices are very reasonable, it's self serve so no tipping the wait staff, and the view is amazing. We have seen dolphins and eagle rays jumping just off the patio. In the evening Wed- Fri, Salt becomes a bar which serves some great micro brews as well as wine and liquor for great prices. The bar food is tasty and huge portions! Worth the drive over Rickenbacker Cswy.

Can always count on great service great food with a cozy fine dining experience! The owner is so friendly he is always stopping by each table to say hello!
I had the Burrata and the tagliatelle with porcini mushroom and truflle oil, both were spectacular. The space is limited but the service is really good. I recommend this place!
Costa Med is a nice fine dining restaurant, the service is great, the owner is a nice person, the food is good but expensive, they don't have full bar, and nice outside tables. I don't recommend any dessert but soon i will go back

Puntino

260 Crandon Blvd
Key Biscayne, 33149
Reviews:
There is no doubt that Puntino has come a long way from when it initially opened. The staff is very friendly, the environment is relaxed (if not fun) and there is always a push for improvement. The food has also come a long way, however my personal preference are the pastas...it is slightly hit/miss with the larger meat dishes, but you can never go wrong with the pastas! Definitely the best Italian on Key Biscayne.... We need to also get Puntino Pizza (next door) recognized here...though the eat in service is much to be desired (it is still new lets give it a chance), the pizza is Excellent! Also, for the locals the take out is easy and timely. Please give it a go! It reminds me of long weekend in Tuscany or even for those Brits on the Key....Pizza Express of London (for non-Brits...simply the best Pizza in England).
This place never disappoints, whether you are eating in the main restaurant or in the pizzeria next door. The food is delicious, fresh, made with high quality ingredients and the service is fantastic. It's upscale yet still informal and I never tire of trying all their wonderful menu options and fantastic specials. One of the best restaurants on the island for sure.
Everybody suggest me to try this restaurant so I went to lunch during my day off. Pasta, Branzino, Calamari (that I order) was good. i give them 4 star and not 5 because I didn't find nothing that surprise me.

Mondo Pasta

Key Biscayne, 33149
Reviews:
Delicious empanadas and pizza. I love the ham and cheese empanadas here because they are so filled and tender with perfect bread crust. Great place for outdoor seating and the service people are nice and warm. Affordable and tasty.
I LOVE Mondo pasta. They food is so fresh and tasty, and the restaurant is very clean. I always order for take home since I have heard the service is slow. I actually use Eat24 to order from them and will get coupons for Mondo. If you're not feeling pasta don't worry, they have the BEST ham and cheese tartas. The empanadas are good but they're my second choice as I think Graziano's is a little bit better. I have yet to try any of the desserts.
One of the best places for lunch on the Key. The food is consistent and inexpensive. I work on Key Biscayne, but live more modestly. As such, I find way to many restaurants here to be over priced for the quality. $15 for a burger with fries down the block? No Thank you. And this is the norm. So the person writing negative reviews - he isn't exactly wrong; service is slow, and some items are at times unavailable. But I call ahead to save time, and am open to modifying my order. Why wouldn't i? Everything I have ordered has been fantastic. From Tartas to pasta to sandwiches I haven't been disappointed yet. Try this place out if you have the time.

Ayesha Indian Restaurant

Reviews:
Wow wow wow!!!! We ordered chicken tiki masala and lamb roganjosh and oh my, just perfection!!! I will come here all the time. The garlic naan was fresh and delicious, can't wait to bring my friends and family. My husband said I had no idea I would love Indian food this much. Serving size was perfect and we had left overs to take home for a second meal. Thank you for serving a perfect meal!!!
The food here is very good, depending on what you are ordering. The samosas very okay, but the Paneer Tikka Masala, was amazing. So was the Nan. However, I felt that the place was tad bit expensive, especially for the portions, the food was served in. Verdict: Pricey, but good.
Wrist Indian food I ever had... Chicken in chili chicken was not properly cooked. Very bad taste of curries...navaratan Korma Chicken buryani was worst I ever had...again chicken was not cooked well...it seems it was raw. Waiter was very rude. Would never recommend this restaurant to anyone.

KeBo Restaurant

200 Crandon Blvd,Ste 104
Key Biscayne, 33149
Reviews:
The lunch at the new restaurant could have been a delight: blue sky, lovely ambience for al fresco dining, good prix fix menu, well prepared food. Except that the bill was three times (!) the advertised price, supposedly because the fish was served fresh (instead of what?) and they brought bottled water although none was ordered. A rip-off attitude that spoils the good things on offer and makes the place untrustworthy.
So happy to have found KeBo. Wonderful, friendly family owned business. Stopped in for lunch -piping hot homemade lentil soup with chorizo. Warm bread with Spanish olive oil and a nice glass of Tempranillo. Perfection.
They have a lot of really good Spanish food here as well as wine. I split the JAMON IBERICO Y QUESO MANCHEGO sharing board with my brother and a bottle of high quality Spanish white wine with my father (my dad wasn't hungry and my brother was the designated driver). The ham was high quality and they have even higher quality ham for a higher price. But I think it was good quality for the price. I would definitely love to come back here sometime. For better or worse, I'm not often in the Key Biscayne area, though. But this is definitely THE restaurant in Key Biscayne (besides eating at the Ritz Carlton, but that will cost you BIG TIME).

Starbucks

Reviews:
Max is the best manager. This Starbucks is cool beyond compare. Also the table all the way in the back is the coldest spot to sit. You can often find me there reading the NYT, WSJ and enjoying my complimentary refill. Congratulations to the staff. Veronica could I have some more ice?
Small hidden location, slow down or you miss it. Small interior. Basic, simple no frills service. Need some training on greeting. Ok place.
They are very nice now but I've had problems in the past with them that I easily resolved.

Dune Oceanfront Burger Lounge

The Ritz Carlton,455 Grand Bay Dr
Key Biscayne, 33149
Reviews:
The frozen mojito is recommend. The Waga sliders were delicious and what they do to it is put onions and a special jam, perfect blend of sweet and salty. The bun was soft with hint of what I think is corn was delicious altogether. I'm not sure the name of the jam but it sure made a difference and has this burger fighting for my top three. The only thing worth mentioning is the price to size ratio. It is a bit pricey. But hey it's the ritz. And was worth it! The staff, the waiter, everybody was perfect
I tried lamb burger, it could be better... Frozen mojito is good. Next time i'll try something else, maybe i got wrong burger..
The food is pricey but that's to be expected when eating at the resort. I ordered the mahi burger while my husband had the Kobe sliders. I tried his sliders & they were delicious! My mahi was okay but my husband loved it. Get sweet potatoes fries instead of regular fries. Next to the beach, can't complain.

Novecento

Reviews:
Amazingly rude attitude the moment we stepped in, we just asked if they started serving the food and she rudely waved her hand to the waitress to tell us that they didn't. Really nice attitude congrats!
Good food, good staff, good location.
This place has decent service (except this time I had to remind them about the beer I ordered), but their fish ranges from not good to possibly dangerous. I ordered a tuna steak medium rare and what I got was a very fishy, tough, and nearly-rotten item. I sent it back, and of what did the salmon for fear of the same problem, and finished with the curry chicken (which was not bad). Like other Key Biscayne restaurants, they have trouble doing anything about children that are being extremely an unreasonably loud, as if this did not impose a cost on other patrons.

Vito’s Restaurant

180 Crandon Blvd,Ste 109
Key Biscayne, 33149
Reviews:
Located in a none descript Strip mall in the "Island Paradise" of Key Biscayne, Vitos is a cozy family owned Italian cuisine establishment I frequent with the family. The last visit was good though I was not impressed the "carbonara" in the Fettucine Carbonara. Just tasted funky probably old. My kid's fettucine alfredo was good and plentiful , the service is personable and given the size of the place (small) there is no lack of attention.
This is a tiny restaurant located in Key Biscayne which is run by Italian chef/owner Vito. It might not be fancy but the food is very good. Upon seating down the waiter always brings fresh bread with their home-made pesto dip. The wine selection is solid with traditional Chianti's and a new favorite Giome (cabernet/merlot blend).. The fried calamari is crispy and flavorful. The linguini with white clam sauce was a generous portion with a delicious and tasty sauce. A little steep with prices, but thats Key Biscayne. Would definitely recommend.
From such a small hole-in-the-wall kitchen, comes consistently spectacular food! Italian from scratch, homemade in an intimate casual setting. Vito's and Joe's are the two staples for every visit to Miami for my family!
