Not Michelin star qualityThe bill: around 1.200$ for 4 guests. No tip included. Two bottles of wine and 4 cocktails plus the tasting menu.The food: the quality of the food was good but not spectacular. Neither the experience itself. Interesting flavours in general but nothing that I haven’t tried before in restaurants without stars such as Bazaar by Jose Andres. Maybe for Miami quality, this is a good restaurant but disappointing if you’ve tried several one star restaurants around the world.The food included 7 courses. A little starter and dessert. Please notice portions are very small so If you have a big appetite you will be slightly hungry when you leave. My husband left a bit hungry.The service: good but extremely far form excellent as a one star restaurant should be. The restaurant tried to cancel our reservation 3 hours before the reservation. Unacceptable. They ended up apologizing but that was already a bit awkward.The ambience: the restaurant hasindoors and outdoors tables. The music was nice (a lot of David Bowie, Oasis…) but very loud.Families with children, avoid: the restrooms are clean, but they do not have hand sanitizer other than soap. There’s no changing table!A child won’t enjoy the experience. Just keep that in mind if you’re planning on visiting with children or babies. This is not a negative as some places aren’t meant to be child friendly, but just something to be aware of.Overall: if you’ve tried several one star restaurants, this one might be disappointing. I’m surprised it squeaked by.

Excellent, delicious and high quality food – very different flavors to other high end or Michelin rated restaurants we’ve been to. Freshest (and tastiest) oysters we had in all of Miami and I was dreaming about the noodles for two days after eating them. Tuna melted in our mouths and the broth in the swordfish dish was complex and delicious. Highly recommend.

It’s rare to find such a wonderful restaurant like Stubborn Seed that has a great vibe, amazing service and exceptional food all in one but this does just that! When in Miami, I recommend coming here and going for the tasting menu and wine pairing. It is well worth the it and your taste buds will thank you. Our 7 year old daughter was with us and she loved the cheese puffs, bravas and the juiciest chicken ever. The service is was top notch and the attention to details was seen throughout the restaurant. It was a wonderful way to start our vacation. Make sure to make a reservation too!

We were there to celebrate our anniversary. The tasting menu was creative and impressive! We loved the menu made for us:) We enjoyed the food as well as the open kitchen setup.One star was reduced because we had an appointment at 9:30pm but got seated around 10:30pm and started eating around 10:40pm. We were told the chef was in the kitchen but when we sat down he was no longer there, too bad! We finished our dinner around 12:30am. I wish they did a better job on respecting the appointment time, although our mood was not impacted:)

The food and service here were top notch. We did the 8 course tasting menu that gave us a little bit of everything from the menu and we left stuffed! Tasting menu takes away the decision making but was all items from the menu. Presentation and flavors were fantastic. Great cocktails, quick service, and a lovely vibe away from the chaos of the main South Beach strip.
