Description: The Forge is one of South Florida's most legendary steakhouses, dating back to 1969. 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 and a cascading bubble wall are perfectly interspersed with the historical pieces that adorn the space. The open floor plan of the 6,000-square-foot space allows guests to see and be seen. Don't miss our Tomahawk steak, Truffle Mac & Cheese and Soufflé. Take a tour of our Wine Cellar with eight-rooms devoted to the rarest vintages in the world, and even a secret, luxe private dining room, which seats up to 25 guests. Join us every Friday night for our Happy Hour, featuring $50 bottles of Veuve Clicquot Champagne and a DJ.

I wanted to take my husband somewhere special for his birthday and after reading thw reviews, I decided to go to The Forge. What a awesome choice!! The experience was great from the moment we entered the door. The hostess found our reservation and informed the wait staff that we were celebrating a birthday. Talia and her team were amazing. They provided 5star service with smiles. The food was prepared perfectly and was delicious. The bonus tour of the facilities was unforgettable. This is THE place to go for a special occassion..when you want the occasion to be really special!!

I was very excited to have dinner at the Forge. I was greeted and sat promptly by the hostess. My server Lirón was with me in about 5 minutes to take the drink order. We got two signature cocktails which took awhile to come to the table and looked a bit melted upon arrival, so we decided a bottle of wine with dinner would be the best way to go. The wine Our server came back to take our order, and that was pretty much the last we saw of her. I had a steak that was pretty good but not exceptional, my wife had a sea bass that was on the small side. My server never came back to check on us after the food arrived. We wanted to order dessert, but we were pretty disappointed in the service and decided to go elsewhere. Eventually I flagged down another server to ask for our check. Lirón did come by one final time to drop off our check, but didn’t bother to mention that a 20% service charge was already included. I’m used to south beach and auto gratuity, but this was a blatant example of a server taking advantage of the automatic tip. Regardless I left her a bit more because (hopefully) she will share her extra tips with the food and drink runners who made our experience better. I don’t think I will be returning to the Forge, which is a shame because it’s a beautiful place and has a great Friday night happy hour. To anyone considering going here, I would recommend having a few drinks at the bar and going elsewhere for dinner.

We travel down to Miami several times a year just to eat at The Forge. Richard Delabat was our server this last visit for my birthday and he was fabulous. The combination of the food, the service, the decor and the overall friendliness of the entire staff make this our favorite place to dine.
