Quinn's Restaurant: Ooverrated restaurant on Ocean Drive   5-Star rating

We were guests at the hotel (still are as I write this) Reserved an outside table at 8pm on a Tuesday through the concierge -didn’t happen, ended up inside through the appetizers until a table opened up. Took 3 attempts to get a high chair for my son; yes, I know, perhaps a travesty in South Beach to actually enjoy your child enough to bring him along.

Food was pretentious, though well presented. My grouper’s inherent flavor somehow dominated its complexly-described sauce, and the potatoes were cold.  Remember that overheated pistachios have the consistency of flooring tile.

The Bam Bam shrimp were quite tasty, though perhaps not fresh before preparation. GREAT presentation, again. Lobster bisque was good if unremarkable.

Service was confused. A “comped” pair of appetizers for the high chair/reservation fiasco arrived plainly on the bill. One was removed after challenge.  Yippee.  Not a big deal, but considering the original comp-promising waiter was well-tipped individually before the move to the outside, this was weak.

Dinner at Rendezvous a couple doors down the night before was better by several magnitudes, especially service. Quinn’s must be resting on its laurels. 

Great hotel (Park Central), Casablanca is perfectly pleasant, but Quinn’s needs an obvious recharge.

Quinn's Restaurant is located at 640 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach.

"Ooverrated restaurant on Ocean Drive"

Martinez says:

Quinn’s Restaurant is overpriced and overrated.
$600 (including a $29 ravioli) for a dinner that was tasteless is excessive.  Quinn’s ambiance was nice, but the dining experience was terrible. The lamb chops didn’t taste to lamb, the potatoes and the sauce were flat (canned food tastes better).  There is no innovation and creativity in the food presentation.

Totally agree with this take on Quinn’s.  We were there last week and endured really bad service, an arrogant manager and a 2 1/2 hour ordeal to get through the meal.  We had 2 teens with us and it wasn’t fun!
