Habitat - Miami Beach
Chef Jose Mendin is fusing masterful Michelin-star techniques with local, farm-fresh ingredients to craft a menu that respects the elements and honors simplicity.
Daily catch pulled fresh from the sea, vegetables plucked from the garden, and grass-fed quality meats are transformed into crudo specialties and dishes fire-grilled to perfection.
At Habitat, the sophisticated service is as warm as the atmosphere and five-star cuisine is delivered family-style because great meals are meant to be shared. It’s just more fun that way.
What a great day. I took the family for mother’s day brunch and we had a great time. Unlike most buffets, Habitat prepared everything in small batches so it was fresh and delicious. Everyone on the staff was super friendly and accommodating. Can’t wait to go back.
Beautiful restaurant and wonderful staff!
Great food and great service! Thank you Natasha! You were awesome!
highly recommend Habitat. Food was delicious and our waitress Natasha had the best combination of recommendations.
The food and ambience were wonderful. Cocktails were not worth the cost.
The service was very inconsistent- the drinks took forever to get from the bar. The food and drinks were excellent as was the atmosphere. Only restaurant I’ve ever been to where they charge for bread on the table - AND we were not told by the waitress in advance that there was a charge for bread.
Our waiter was great and the supporting service was very good too. The food was tasty but the price did not match the meal. I think it may be a tourist trap. It was good but we won’t be back next spring when we are on our Spring vacation.
Everything about this restaurant was fabulous !! Great service , knowledgeable accommodating staff!! - sitting outside was just an amazing vibe , great music , overall my favorite restaurant so far in Miami.
Waiter was extremely attentive and really personable and fun. Chef was coming out and seeing how the food was. A bit pricey but very very good. Outside seating needed a cleaning though other than that experience was perfect
Excellent food and service. Great place to take a date, a business meeting or a family dinner - situated in the lobby of the 1 Hotel South Beach.
Great service, good food and a wonderful location. I would like to go again soon.
Outstanding meal, service and atmosphere. Two of us shared several plates and each was outstanding. Great for friend night out or date night. Excellent cocktails!
By far one of the best meals I have ever had. Moreover, the entire staff was amazing and made our evening memorable. Can’t wait to go back!!
Was there a year ago. Was much better. Service is amazing. Kitchen ok but not excellent. Only one kind of tasteless bread. Scallops to battery. Well good for mainstream. The deserts also. Wish they had the homemade chocolate ice cream the had a year ago..
Amazing food, ambiance and service!!
Amazing food. Amazing service. Beyond amazing ambience
Great food, drinks and atmosphere/decor! The only negative was kind of slow service. Maybe it was due to being a busy Friday night but for how nice of a place as Habitat I think it’s fair to expect great service. We still had a great meal and a fun evening which is why I’m giving 4 stars.
Our dinner at Habitat was the hilight of our weekend. Our server was very knowledgeable, patient and sensitive to my food allergies, and the chef was amenable to preparing my food to my specifications. As a result, I was able to fully participate in and enjoy my meal in a way that I don’t usually get to when I eat out. I will eat at Habitat whenever I am back in Miami Beach, for sure.
Mostly okay. I got the filet mignon though. It was tasteless and tough. When I complained, they took the entree away. I was frankly surprised to see it still on the check. No compensation offer was made. When you charge as much as they do, one might think they could afford to be generous when things are not perfect. I won’t be back.
Das Restaurant ist leider zu stark gekühlt und das macht es ungemütlich
Great tapas and desserts
The food was amazing. Loved every bite. Decor and ambience were perfect. Only complaints were slow service (typical for Miami Beach).
Our service was really outstanding! Great personality and super helpful.
Favorite find on recent trip to Miami Beach! Food wonderful, setting very attractive, service good. Returned for a dinner after a wonderful lunch--neither disappointed!
Food was very good, but empty on a Saturday night at 8:30 pm.
Goodlooking restaurant. Food ok, nice wine, but terrible coffee
Atmosphere great food awesome recommend to everyone
We arrived for our reservations at 7:15 on a Saturday to an uncrowded, not busy restaurant. Prompt seating, greeting, drink order taking. Food was ordinary, small portions and overpriced served by kitchen “runner.” Waitress was pleasant but seemed distracted and seldom present Service charge/tip (included 18% in bill) was too much.
Increíble, la comida muy rica el lugar espectacular, en general una buena velada 👌
Food was ok but Way overpriced
Great food. Lovely space.
Service was great. Food was good.
Delicious food. Some of the worst service...seemed like no one had any idea what they were doing.
The app forces me to give ratings. Open table allowed us to book a reservation for Tuesday night. When we arrived the doors were open and lights on but there was no one inside including employees. We found a hotel employee in the lobby of 1hotel who told us there is no dinner service on Tuesday. Open table please coordinate with the restaurant as this was very confusing and frustrating. We obviously don’t have any negatives about the restaurant as we never dined.
Habitat was one of the worst restaurants I've ever visited in Miami Beach. The overall service was terrible, from an inhospitable manager (Carlos) to a sarcastic waiter (Aleks) it was an awful time. They also charged us $30 for bringing an outside cake even though my sister in law has serious food allergies.
I have tried the Habitat with my family, and as a whole, we gave it mixed reviews. I think I have to go back, as it is worth it to go back, and give it a second try.
Started at the bar and the bartender Bob Gilardi was excellent. Recommended the Grilled Cauliflower which was amazing. Scallops for dinner were excellent; we be back soon.
good food but very pricey
My husband and I had an exceptionally wonderful dinner at Habitat. The ambiance, service and food was amazing. Everything we tasted; shrimp and scallop dumplings (more like a ravioli shape), short ribs, crab croquetas etc were beyond delicious and well executed. There were also very healthy choices on the menu but we chose the high carb route that night. Usually one wouldn't feel that good the next day if you're not used to eating a lot of carbs but we both felt great. We sat on the banquette close to the entry on the window which was perfect seating for us as it was a quieter table. Our server (sorry forgot his name) from Latvia was super attentive and gave us the right amount of space for conversing with him and having our private conversations. He and his team poured our wine exactly when it was time to pour. We look forward to returning soon!
