Description: A Modern American Steakhouse, BOURBON STEAK Miami offers contemporary American fare with a focus on all natural, organic and hormone free cuts of beef poached and finished over the wood-burning grills. The restaurant also features Michael Mina's Lobster Pot Pie as well as the ever-popular Duck Fat French Fries. BOURBON STEAK'S striking design was created by internationally renowned architect/design firm, Tony Chi and Associates. A dynamic twelve foot high glass box entry provides a dramatic welcome to guests. Comprised of a number of different spaces, the breathtaking 7,600 square foot restaurant includes The Tavern, a casual dining space fed by the energy of an adjacent bar, a wine cellar and lounge, a large glamorous dining room with glittering mirrored walls and a "glass box" private dining room. There is also an additional Tasting Room with a private garden.

Food great. Atmosphere great. But 2 people sitting at a bar dropping $800 on food and wine don't deserve to have an 18% gratuity included without saying anything. A group of 10+ I can understand. But 2 people at a bar. Classy on the surface... But sneaky underneath.

I eat at Bourbon Steak at least 6-8 times a year and like it very much. The ambiance is dark, romantic, and special. Fresh flowers are lovely and the bar is quite nice. The food is very good too. Nice steaks, decent but somewhat plain fish choices, and great sides...including a trio of complimentary french fries. But one word of warning here.... Bourbon Steak is located in the Turnberry Resort and therefore charges 9% tax on all food and alcohol. This becomes very high if one selects a costly bottle of wine or has a few high-priced drinks. In fact, the wine list offers few reasonably priced bottles. Also, although the server may not tell you (ours didn't on this visit and we were a table of two), the restaurant adds in 18% gratuity no matter what the party size. So pay attention....

My family had dinner here for my nephews 18th Birthday. This was his choice to eat here as we have eaten here many times in the past. Both the food and the service are consistently exceptional.

From the hostess' friendly greeting until we tasted the final delicious spoonful of our molten chocolate dessert, our evening at Bourbon Steak, Miami reflected excellence in every way. Our cordial, attentive waiter, Giuseppi, was well-informed regarding the menu’s offerings and helped us make dining decisions. Our dinner began with an amuse bouche: the signature duck-fat fries - YUM! Our starters followed with delicious hand-rolled fettuccini and halibut cheeks. An unusually creative and tasty foccacia was served alongside just for fun! Because the meals are so generous, the four of us shared three meals including the wonderful scallops and an amazingly tender rib-eye. And the wine service! Oh my! The knowledgeable sommelier treated our palates with the best the Loire Valley has to offer in select white wines, followed by a California Pinot Noir and a Spanish red. All perfectly lovely and this does not begin to tell the whole story! Certainly, our evening at Bourbon Steak will remain in our collective memories for a long time. THANK YOU to the chef “extraordinaire,” the talented pastry chef, the wait staff and the management of this excellent restaurant!
