This place was simply phenomenal. My partner and I visited this gem for an intimate date night. We sat outside and had a perfect view of the Downtown Miami lights and the marina. The food was in delicious hefty portion sizes and our lovely Cuban server Luis was simply amazing! He was attentive, kind and was very knowledgeable of the menu and gave great selections of wine and must-haves. The ambiance here was very romantic and definitely set the tone for our evening. I love that the restrooms were clean and lacked nothing. After dinner, we got to take some pictures of this lovely find. We will definitely be back to experience some of the other menu items!

Just had another wonderful dining experience with my daughter this Friday evening! Received excellent service from Nathalie C. She was very professional, warm, and very pleasant. Our dinner was outstanding, and the view from the patio was breathtaking. Very pleased with this visit! I have been going to this restaurant for over 3 decades, and it has never let me down! Thanks!

The best thing about the restaurant is the fabulous view! Drinks and wine excellent and we enjoyed the food. Service was a little slow but polite and friendly.Since we did not have much time we had to stop by for lunch time, definitely Will need to come back for the night views, see you soon!PS. We also had a chance to some of their new additions coming soon, there was this guy showing a dog robot that based in his words will be part of the team, not sure how to attach the video but will try again

Made reservations and was told I would still have to wait 30min if I wanted to be seated inside. We opted to sit outside by the water and the ambiance was nice overlooking the water. Our waitress Gigi was nice and pleasant and very informative about everything on the menu. I ended up trying octopus for the first time because of her and I absolutely loved it! The food overall was good. I took one star away only because we were told we had to wait even with reservations.

The food here is excellent. The shrimp cocktail came on a bed of seaweed and under that was dry ice so it came smoking to the table. I had their salmon with the mashed potatoes and broccoli and it was fantastic. The drinks are good. The view is stellar. Highly recommend this restaurant. It is pricey but worth it.

A mainstay for diners looking for a spectacular view and solid seafood offerings, Rusty Pelican is the exact restaurant one expects in Miami. The waterfront establishment is especially popular during weekend brunch, when a lavish buffet boasting modern American fare takes over the regular á la carte menu. On a clear night, head to the restaurant's outdoor patio for cocktails, happy hour (available Monday through Friday from 4 to 7pm) and general people and yacht watching.
