Beautiful restaurant inside and out. There is a view of busy 5th St and Washington Ave. The dishes are fresh, good quality, with excellent presentations. There are not a lot of options for vegan and vegetarians.

The term "family style" was used by all three of our waitpersons ( the last one certainly doing damage control as the others made some pretty bad mistakes ) to describe the portions. It is not. There is not one single reason the term should be used. The beef tartar appetizer was smaller, more expensive, and way less tasty than ones I've had at four star retaurants in Paris. Sorry, it's true. The main dishes are not large by any standard, except price. There is absolutely no reason this restaurant can justify the high cost of their surprisingly average food. Location is cool, but not that cool. There are better locations with more well designed restaurants that are expensive on the same street. Service was terrible. As a Floridian, I find service to generally not be as good as in some other parts of the country (NYC, Boston, DC come to mind) but this place was just wrong. This restaurant was a huge let down and I can't say that I would recommend going there for any reason aside from laughing at a "wanna be" clientle.

Pros: laughing at customer base

Cons: all related to dining out

Wonderfull experience. let me start by saying that we had an excellent waiter who steered us away from ordering too much. I did not think that I could be surprised by a caesar salad yet theirs has a lot of flavor the crackling calamari salad was excellent as well. The spicy torro tuna was an excellent addiion to the salad. As for the entrees the pan seared spicy tuna. They had another entree; i just cannot remember the name. It was strips of rib eye that ewas excellent as well. As for deserts the banana tarte was very good aswell, however next time I would probably stuff my self with the appetizers and entrees and skip desert. We were a party of 11 and everything got there on time and warm. This was in Dec 2007 and not the busiest of times so that probably helped. We had 7 bottles of wine and paid $150 all in. Considering what I paid at other lousy restaurants in Miami it felt like a "deal".

Cons: Pricey.

What a huge disappointment!! We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at China Grill in Las Vegas a few years ago. So, we decided to make it our last stop on a recent trip to Miami because we thought it would be the perfect ending to the perfect weekend. IT WAS AWFUL. The service was sporadic, the food was marginal, the prices were not acceptable for the sub-par food quality, the atmosphere (80's music and empty room) bordered on depressing and they gauge you for $15 for valet parking, non-inclusive of the tip!! We ordered the Chinese chicken salad, which was bland, flavorless and lacking in chicken. We also ordered the skirt steak accompanied by lobster mashed potatoes. As a child I remember eating potatoes from a box, the kind that required the addition of water. That is what we got. Boxed potatoes with a few pieces of chewy, flavorless lobster. The skirt steak was not memorable and the portion was small. After receiving a substantial bill, we left disappointed and upset that we had made this our last stop in Miami. We were met with..."that will be $15 please" from the valet parker. When we complained to the manager, he acted as though he could care less, because he didn't care. I work in the business and I know that he had the chance to make things right and at least take care of the parking, but he chose not to. Hospitality professionals know that making guests happy is the ultimate goal. STAY AWAY!

I recently moved to Miami Beach from San Francisco and have a somewhat sophisticated pallate especially for Asian cuisine. I was fairly disappointed in the lack of freshness and flavor presented in the dishes. I must say I think PF Changs chain restaurant provides more flavorful dishes that the China Grill, which is not saying much for a four star establishment. I understand that this is not SF or NYC but I think Asian Fusion deserves better representation than this place gives. In addition, the service was poorest I have seen in Miami. I ordered a bottle of Pellingrino for the table and the waiter brought Voss to the table and poured it without as much as asking if the substitution was ok for the table. We refilled our own wine glasses as the waiter was not to be bothered. Dessert menus were flung on the table without any discussion. I will not revisit this establishment in this lifetime nor recommend it to anyone, friend or otherwise. Not a good experience.

Food was really good and original. Very Pricey- Every appetizer is over 20 dollars and are really small, salads are a great value, fried spinach is amazing, steak and chicken were great, dessert assortment is really good.

The place was nice, lively, trendy but very dark. However, the food was a different story. Don't get me wrong, I thought the dishes we ordered were tasty, particulary the chicken satay appetizer. But the sushi was mediocre and overpriced. Apps were more than $20 each! I expect entrees to be $20 and over, but not usually appetizers. The portions were bigger than usual but still not enough to justify the price they charge.

After entering the famed China Grill, I was astonished beyond the capacity of rational thought for the deliberate display of amazing Pan-Asian artistry. My favorite location in the restaurant, dubbed "The Dragon, was an experience in itself with an array of amazing people on hand. The food looked so spectacular, that I was intimidated to try it. Honestly, the food looked better than most of the female models by the bar that night. Because it was difficult for me to disrupt such a beautiful presentation of nutritional artistry, the ecstasy I knew Id receive by digging into it would be worth the experience. I had to reach for my camera and take a photograph of my meal so I would remember every detail. The Peking duck was so succulent, that my taste buds still quiver at the thought of it. Leave your inhibitions at the door and enjoy. -L.A.

we didn't makr it past the hostess, what an arrogance and lack of personality. we arrived a little late and were refered to a table we didn't like - when we asked for another table, the hostess started lecturing that we were too late and therefore had no right to ask for another table. Sometimes you really don't understand how restaurants recruit hostesses - this will certainly cost them business- we immediately left and found a great Thai restaurant on Lincoln Road

Faded, past its prime and the decor looking a little shabby. Filled with out of town tourists who probably dont have something like this back home, but if your tastes in dining out are demanding and sophisticated i would not recommend it. Great for large parties though as crowded and noisy. One of the most expensive meals we had in Miami.

Anything you order will not dissapoint you. It's a little expensive so the best thing to do is to share a plate with your partner or friend since the portion of food is large. What I liked was having a table at the Lounge area, it looks nice with the lights dimmed and a plasma TV mounted on the wall with a modeling show to watch and the manager to walk around the area making sure everyone is ok.

Going to China Grill is an Experience. If you are looking for an outstanding meal.... there are better restaurants in the city.... But where else can you go on a wednesday nite and find a very attractive crowd, good music and FUN ( not delicious! ) Fun food??
Madonna's former gal pal Ingrid Casares host the Dinner Club and you will get a taste of the good ole days in SoBE.... Great place to bring out-of-towners for a late dinner, or a nice group of friends. It can be pricey... But who said life was easy?? I try to go once every two months... and i always leave it up to my friends to order whatever they want.... and don't forget to order the Cold House Sake with your meal.... it will go with anything on the menu.

Way over rated...not sure how they can get away from charging such ridiculous prices. But people still keep going and then wonder why it is so expensive?

As far as I'm concerned, all that can be said about China Grill in SoBe is EXCELLENT. The food is always exceptional, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is great for an evening with 5 friends...or 1 special friend as well. I have never had a complaint and would recommend it to all!

Went to China Grill with eight friends and had a wonderful experience. The mojitos are the best I've had in SoBe, the wait staff was super friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. Since many dishes are quite large (your server will let you know which ones are good to share), we ordered about 10 appetizers and shared, which turned out to be a perfect amount of food and, with drinks, was right at $60 per person. Well worth it for the atmosphere and culinary experience. I'll go back.

Had a great time and even better meal at China Grill. A little overpriced, but you only live once. This place is great fun. Try some of the fruit infused sake, really nice. Unless you are a big eater, two people can split one appetizer and one entree, maybe add some some fried rice and you will have plenty to eat! (A lot cheaper this way too!)If not full, they have some great desserts. Service was good, but needs to relax and let you enjoy the food, seemed to want to hurry us. But was never pushy.

It's hard to believe that this spin-off of restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow's original Manhattan China Grill is over a dozen years old. Despite the relative infrequency, these days, of A-list celebrity sightings, the vast, vibrant room is…
