I love this place. The food is great. The atmosphere is alive. And they even have a DJ spinning! When the Staff asks "how was everything?" It really feels sincere. Great for a romantic date or a night out.

Service was good but did have the most expensive Cesar salad I've ever seen on the menu. Loved the place but non... More

Thank you so much for your thoughtful feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed our Friday Happy Hour featuring $50 bottles of Veuve Clicquot Champagne. However, we are sorry to hear that you did not thoroughly enjoy your food. As far as our Caesar Salad, it is prepared tableside for two people, so that is included in the cost. Nevertheless,...

We booked ahead; essential, and secured a table in a quieter part of the restaurant. The waiter told us the history of the place which was engaging , thoughtful and entertaining. Food met our expectations and the wine list was outrageous. Definitely an experience.

This is a beautifully decorated restaurant with impeccable service and well prepared gastronomic delights. There is a wonderful Caesar salad prepared table side should you so desire, as well as many other beginning alternatives. The steak was delicious. Cooked to perfection. The sides were prepared as you would expect. Not overly Spiced. Just how you'd want it to be. The... More

Great atmosphere, amazing interior design, fabulous music (we went on a Friday night so there was live music and a DJ) but the food was mediocre. Go for the bar not the food!

Where can you order a U2 sized shrimp and open a bottle of Rothschild down the street from Bal Harbor or The Fontainblue, right here. Hopefully you have reached a point in your life where you can not only recognize world-class cuisine and unparalleled waitstaff but can also afford what it really costs to experience such a venue.

This place is great. We had a reservation for 9pm but got there an hour earlier and sat at the bar. The bar experience was a lot of fun, there was a DJ playing chilled out music and we sat and drunk champagne (Verve Clique at $50 a bottle is a bargain) and people watched, they brought round free canapés...

I came to The Forge for my 50th birthday dinner. The hostess wished me a happy birthday as did the waiter. In addition, they brought out a complimentary dessert with a happy birthday message. The food is exceptional, atmosphere great and the wait staff hits the perfect tone with service that makes you feel special! Thanks for a great 50th!

Description
The Forge is one of South Florida's most legendary steakhouses, dating back to 1969 on Miami Beach. The award-winning restaurant is not your grandfather's steakhouse - although it once was. With its modern décor, ambiance and philosophy, The Forge has undergone a total makeover, the overall design and décor was executed by Francois Frossard. Walls of hand-carved blonde wood and antique mirrors, lilac and white crystal chandeliers, a wall of bubbles - are perfectly interspersed with the historical pieces that adorn the space. Every diner's seat is "the best in the house." The open floor plan of the 6,000-square-foot space allows guests to see and be seen. Executive Chef Julia Doyne presents a 65-item menu along with a delicious Dessert Menu. Finally, there's a labyrinth-like Wine Cellar with eight-rooms devoted to the rarest vintages in the world, and even a secret, lux private dining room, which seats up to 25 guests. The bar offers guest 64 Enomatic's wines by the ounce.
