Pizza & Burger - Fontainebleau Miami Beach Ratings and Reviews
For the Fontainebleau, a very expensive hotel with amazing restaurants, this "pop-up" pizza & burger place is fair at best. Hamburger buns were hard (and probably always served that way) - awful bread. Pizza is nothing special. Mushroom app came out burnt.
Way overpriced for what it is, burgers, salads and pizza. It preys on those stuck at the hotel. This was especially true during a recent convention where they charged $40 for a fixed price menu, that included a way-too-big pizza for one person and a dessert that certainly was not needed or wanted. Predatory pricing.
We enjoyed a casual dinner here during a recent night in Miami. The Bar man who served us was exceptionally friendly, professional and helpful. We arrived during the social hour, which is a happy hour of sorts and he recommended a great deal that they had on a glass of French champagne - it was a bargain and delicious, so much so, that we enjoyed a couple of glasses. He was happy to make our daughter a virgin pina colada, which she enjoyed.
We ordered a Cuban burger with a fried egg on top as recommended by our great waitress, the signature burger and a Turkey burger - all delicious, cooked perfectly and served with great skin-on fries. We were tempted with the Smores style dessert and the beignets with salted caramel sauce - all too sweet for me, but my husband and daughter enjoyed them both and they seemed to fit with the style of menu.
The service from waitress, bar man and the manager that checked us twice during the evening was excellent and we thought that this casual eatery was a great addition to the Fountainbleu hotels dining offering.
Was wondering if it might be some other aliment but when I called my dining partner later he said exactly the same, he was suffering incredible thirst from ingesting so much sodium, we both had the Cuban Burger.
Awful experience, but they do pour a full glass of wine which is a pleasant change.
The service was outstanding and it made up for to so-so food. The salad (Greek) was incredibly salty and was really lacking on the olives and onions and feta ... 99% lettuce and dressing.
The pizza was okay. The crust was soggy because of too much sauce. We tried 3 of the pizzas and had the same experience with each one. Better place for thin crust pizza in Miami is Lucali! Better priced as well.
All in all, it was okay. The service made up for the mediocre food!
We had a couple pizzas, a meatball, and a burger. The pizzas were great: Crispy, chewy crust with a flavorful sauce and just the right amount of cheese. The meatball was a bit over-seasoned for my taste, but my husband really enjoyed it. The service was great. Very attentive and friendly. I would definitely come back!
This place was completely awful!
The wait staff was miserable, the food was cold and had no flavor. The place was empty so I assumed, we would at least have great service! Boy, I was sadly
Mistaken! My wife and I were staying at the hotel and figured
We would give it a shot! All I can say is never again!
Michael Mina makes our favorite burgers, so glad to have found this space. Really excellent food over all, including dessert. Beware of parking. Valet told us it would be 45 minutes to retrieve car unless we paid $100 to have our car parked near the front. In reality, it took maybe 15 minutes to get our car.
An exciting and fun atmosphere making it seem like it's underground however located on the first floor. A few new items to the menu make it for a great spot, it's not just pizza and burgers. Lights are nice and dimmed making it feel more private and secretive. Over all the food quality is better than avager they do ask for an arm and a leg, it's over priced. Staying st the hotel make it conviene to run down stairs and grab a burger but not to go out of your way.
Definitely check it out for yourself.
The server/host were extremely accommodating and helpful as our large group expanded. That was very memorable for me, as I put on a lot of business dinners and not all restaurants are very accommodating when changes arise. The food was very good, easy to share, and fun for a big group. We easily cut burgers into quarters, ordered various pizzas and salads and everyone enjoyed the meal.
Meh. Would not return. With so many great places to eat at in South Beach, this is one to definitely pass up. My husband liked his burger though. Wait staff also seems to have an attitude as if they are having to go out of their way to serve you. Pass! Server attitude makes it or breaks it for me but the pizza was definitely nothing special and not that good. Father in law hated his pizza didn't eat it.
Picked pizza&burger as an alternative (non-fussy) menu to the other offerings in Fountainbleau. The food was great and the servers had time for conversation and what felt like genuine interaction.
Our server and the manager held a conversation over where else to visit on our trip to Orlando.
In a hotel full of clientele that many appear to be less than genuine, the staff at pizza&burger were a refreshing change.
I don't know if you can drop in for dinner without pre-booking which if so, is an impediment to the restaurant.
Worth the visit and good atmosphere without being over noisy in what is a recreation of a pub setting.
It should have a trip advisor tag!
Great food! First time there so of course I had to ask the waiter what would he recommend and without any hesitation he said "the farm pizza" I must admit at first I had my doubts, c'mon who puts an over-easy egg on a pizza?? I glad I took he advice that pizza was amazing😋😋👌🏿👍🏿 along with their Zombie beverage my night was set!! Average bar atmosphere nothing out of the ordinary, although I must say the place wasn't as packed as the hostess informed us!! I assume they wanted the place to seem more exclusive then what it really was (no less then 10-15 open tables) only way I was able to get a table was thru Opentable which I think sucked because I'm sure there was other customers who would've love to try the place out only to be turned away by the hostess lying about the place being in her words "fully committed"..
My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant 4-5 times over the last 18 months. Each time the food has gone a bit downhill. This past time my wife ordered the Short Rib and it was so tough she couldn't eat it. We had another couple with us and they said the Snapper was very good, but the Sea Bass was way over cooked. I ordered the fried chicken because they had put it back on the menu although different sides. It used to be my favorite Fried Chicken in the world. This time I got chicken fingers and a muffin. The sauce was very different than the old prep but the muffin was excellent. Sadly that was the highlight. I miss the old appetizer carts, now they just have the shellfish cart, which is great, but pricey.
I had a reservation for a group of 15 people for a bachelorette party for Friday June 11, 2016. The service was amazing and the wait staff was very accommodating to all of our needs. The ambiance was nice the lights were dim low creating a nice vibe. All of our dishes were excellent (and I wouldn't just say that) I'm a foodie and I love to try new restaurants. This one exceeded all of my expectations. I had the skirt steak it was perfect! However the Brussels sprouts are to die for!!! I requested for a dessert to be bought out beignets to the table as a added surprise to the bride! We really enjoyed our welcome dinner. It was a nice start to our weekend. I will definitely be returning the next time I'm in Miami!!!!!
MM74 delivers innovative and delicious cuisine in an understated yet luxurious environment - all while offering impeccable service and attention to detail. This was our third time visiting MM74 (for our annual vacation to SOBE for my wife's birthday), and while our previous visits were memorable, MM74 made THIS birthday just incredible! We were seated in the booth we requested (no small feat for a popular restaurant during a busy Memorial Day weekend!) and the sommelier, Robert, brought us 2 glasses of an excellent Champagne to celebrate my wife's birthday; not only that, but Robert paid particular attention to other small details that weren't even in his purview! Our server, Burak, was outstanding; he was friendly, attentive, and just downright pleasant! The floor manager also came by several times to check on us - from start to finish - it was perfection. So much so that we cancelled dinner at another restaurant and returned on our last night in Miami Beach!! Now for the food: the crab, shrimp, and lobster rolls melt in your mouth; the hamachi and tuna poppers are also very tasty. Don't miss the seafood cart: fresh osyters are spot-on. The star of the show, actually, was the cold asparagus salad. This was the BEST asparagus we've ever had; moreover, it is one of the best DISHES we've ever had. DON'T MISS IT! Perfectly blanched asparagus with a delicious aioli - topped with a perfectly poached egg that is encapsulated in a nest of fillo...crazy! Finallly - the beignets with the Macallen Scotch sauce - too good for words. We also had the pleasure of meeting Chef Jun Lee - the architect of these amazing dishes. Thanks, Chef Lee - and thanks to all of the staff at MM74; we look forward to seeing you again!
I chose Michael Mina's at the Fountainbleu for my wife's Birthday celebration with the kids because her favorite local restaurant is Michael Mina's Bourbon in Turnberry. This American Bistro comes in a sloppy second to the fine dining experience we are used to.
The evening started with my children being hasseled for standing too close to the bar. After shooing away the hostess and advising her that our children would not be seated at the bar, I had the pleasure of paying $8.00 for a Shirley Temple.
We were seated next to a table of 7, made up of 6 twenty-somethings and one boorish, loud (I mean screaming) guy who literally did not shut up. We requested to be relocated to the other side of the restaurant, which to our surprise was almost empty. That side of the restaurant remained relatively quiet, but for the three separate wait staff who dropped and broke dishes throughout the evening. I assume their high prices are as a result of having to repurchase so much dinnerware.
The food was great - steaks/short ribs/snapper/hamburgers. The first waiter told my daughter the tater tots were included. The second waiter charged an extra $8.00 for them. Although it was my wife's Birthday, she declined dessert and recommended we go elsewhere to celebrate.
$250 for a family of 4 - and no dessert. I'll choose better next time.
