I had made reservations for 8:30 PM. When we arrived we had to wait almost one hour. The issue they gave us is that they had a holiday party that took half of the restaurant. I think if they knew they had this party, then they should have called their reservations and explained the issue and let the person make a decision to cancel or come at a later time. I think they would have been more proactive about it.

We've been going to Christy's regularly for the last 4 years, which was when I moved to Miami. Their food is excellent, their menu gives you an excellent range of foods to choose from, their wait staff is professional but friendly and accommodating. Delicious and well prepared food, excellent service, a relaxed environment, a bit pricey but you get excellent value for your money. What more could you want?

Going for 25 years and restaurant has taken a drastic turn for the worse. Not only was the food not very good but the waiter and bartender didn't seem to really care about our dining experience. Time to move on to better choices.

Menu is dated. Food just "okay". I hadn't been in about 30 years. It hasn't changed much except for the prices...

We got offered a special for a tomahawk steak with 2 lobster tails and a side dish for 120. Which is a great deal. We ate like king and queen as the steak was DELICIOUS!! So were the lobster and the side of cream of corn was superb. We have never left happier from a great meal.

Second time there and we were disappointed. We visited for our anniversary. Our first visit was WONDERFUL. But not this time, unfortunately. First of all, the table next to us had a very loud lady who kept laughing and trying to draw attention to herself. Very obnoxious. Second, and more importantly, my husband's steak was undercooked. We had to send our food back. The second time around, it was still undercooked. The manager came by and we explained and he was trying to convince us that it wasn't undercooked when it clearly was. If you are paying $50+ for steak only (no sides), it should be perfect. On the bright side, our waiter was excellent and our dessert (alaskan) was delicious.

Food is salty. It was served luke warm, adam (the waiter ) .Chef must be on the retirement path.

I have been a customer of Christy's for 35 years and it is now awful. Went for Thanksgiving Dinner with friends and have been to Thanksgiving Dinner in past years, but will never go back. Didn't order the turkey meal, but did order Prime Rib...meat was tough, not cooked enough had to send it back. Shrimp cocktail was terrible, tasted old. Had to ask for condiments to go with food. Bread with no butter, now just small plate of olive oil...really! My lamb was not good, side was some overcooked mushrooms. All sides are extra. Wouldn't dare order desert. I would not recommend Christy's, it's been a landmark, but definately is not what it used to be.

Never disappoints. A Gables institution worth revisiting.

Everything was perfect except for the fact that they ran out of Gran Marnier.

Have been going Christy's for years. Love their steaks, sides and Cesar salad. Service is impeccable.

So good we are going back for more!

Pesima Sirven comida en descomposición Hasta su especialidad la carne no es suficientemente fresca Mal servicio Sin estacionamiento Gerente defiende lo indefendible Ambiente de ancianos

Good options offered on the menu but average cooking of food served.
by danadenni on November 04, 2017
The food was good for everyone except me. Others food was said to be pretty good. Not great. I asked if there was vegetarian for me and they told me to pick sides. I picked mushrooms and potatoe skins. The skins were burnt. Our bill came out to over $ 300.00 and it was totally not worth it at all. We were very disappointed. Too bad.

Not worth the $$
by OpenTable Diner on October 27, 2017
The food this time was a little bit of a moss, but they tried to correct the issue.

This was a dinner date with my wife to celebrate the end of 2 weeks vacation. Although not notified in advance, the restaurant properly handled the disabled guest and no additional wait was required. The menu is famously focused on steaks but there are a number of non steak items to cater to a wide variety of tastes. The wine list is very satisfactory and a 2012 Fanti Brunello was selected and delivered to the table; no vintage swapping. The tuna tartar and escargot were both excellent choices and we thoroughly enjoyed the appetizers. The tuna tartar got better as it warmed to room temperature. Entree choices were scallops and the Aged New York Strip steak and the wine selection proved to be suitable for both choices. Service was professional, not overbearing or absent, and we able to talk freely without interruptions by the server. The Aged New York Strip at 16 ounces was too much to consume at one sitting so a takeout container was required. Not usual dessert eaters I used the occasion to have key lime pie followed by espresso; both were average. Christy's lived up to its reputation and I definitely visit on a next travel to Miami. Then there is also Redfish to try in about 1 year.

Amazing, had a great time with my daughter and her boyfriend ! Service was spectacular, food was exquisite, and ambience was excellent.
by nyc220 on October 10, 2017
Our dinners were perfect, as always. Everything was cooked as ordered, and the Caesar salad was as good as ever. The service was flawless. At our early dining hour, Christy's remains the ideal spot for a quiet dinner with family or friends. I must add, though, that it's equally pleasant at later hours with more diners.

I was very disappointed. I always go to Christy's cause it's the only steak house in Coral Gables that serves prime rib daily. This time, the prime rib tasted completely different and not in a good way. The asparagus I ordered was terrible. Completely inedible

What’s not to love? Service, food, music, atmosphere make Christy’s Restaurant a shining star!
by Ss1955 on October 07, 2017
Fantastic like always.
by GREATFIND on October 07, 2017
I had not been to Christy's in awhile. Each plate we ordered was prepared just perfect. I ordered the snapper, it was cooked just perfectly. My favorite, of course, was the Baked Alaska. Always perfect!
by Beatrizdagli on October 07, 2017
Excellent place , would denifenetly recomend , food is good , prices are great.
by OpenTable Diner on October 06, 2017
We always enjoy Chiristy's. This night no exception. Was a little noisy and crowded. More than usual. Found out Miami Spice was still being offered which brought in more than the regular crowd. A good time had by all. Always enjoy talking to the Chef.
by OpenTable Diner on October 05, 2017
We were very pleased with everything except we couldn't share the Miami spice menu. We don't like to take home leftovers.
by OpenTable Diner on September 30, 2017
A bit to loud, they sat seven young obnoxious milinials in small area neat us which made conversation very difficult. Very poor sitting choice for the other five tables.

Food Is Great

Food and service excellent!!! Desert not good!!! Will go again!!!
by OpenTable Diner on September 29, 2017
My waiter was not as good as I expect at Christy's. I ordered the rack of lamb and took half home. Unfortunately, the next day I found that the waiter gave me the lamb chops but none of the mushrooms. I handed him the plate which I had removed what I didn't want packed. The lamb chops had to be sent back three times because they were raw and my husbands filet was cold. Not the best experience.
by OpenTable Diner on September 28, 2017
We arrived on time at 9:00 only to be told we would have to wait 15 or 20 minutes as our table was not ready-there was no one else waiting. . We said they should have called to let us know and that they should at least give us a glass of wine on the house while we waited. But nothing. Finally they gave a very uncomfortable table and no apologies....Our waiter was excellent in spite of how hard it was to serve us. We left and nobody came to apologize.
by Miamifoodlover on September 02, 2017
We went to Christy's and had the Spice Menu. It was great food at a great price!
by LOOKATBARBILL on September 01, 2017
The food was excellent. Miami Spice is a great deal. New on the menu is a cheesecake that is to die for. Cheesecake is a MUST TRY!

Great Food, Service, Ambience, convenient location

Untrained greeters Poor wait staff New recipes not cutting it Fish uncooked Lamb over cooked Just below average
by OpenTable Diner on August 29, 2017
Christy's is no doubt one of the pillars of the Coal Gables Retaurant scene. Quality ingredients, good cooking, and superior customer service are the hallmarks of this eatery. Whether it Steaks, Sea Food, or a special desert you are assured of good value for the money. Ask for Chef W who is new to Christy's and who make a special effort to interact with the patrons and solicits your feedback. Expect a good experience! If its quiet meal you want ask to be seated in the OAK room
by MsMM on August 29, 2017
As always Christys does not disappoint. Great food in a beautiful club like setting. Been dining here for the last 20 years and always my go to favorite.

One of the gastronomic landmarks in Coral Gables, there's a reason they've been in business for so long!!!

The Miami Spice menu was nice. The steak, Caesar salad and key lime pie were fabulous... One of the best meals of my life. The waiter was great and had personality! I will be back. Thanks!

Amazing / love it . The manager and the staff super fabulous . Excellent customer services
by OpenTable Diner on August 25, 2017
Prime rib was excellent. Baked Alaska dessert was also excellent.
by OpenTable Diner on August 24, 2017
Not what it used to be have been going there for 30 years , service was historically excellent now mediocre at best , never had a medium rare rib eye that was bone dry no blood weird, fish not cooked through.

It was my sisters boyfriends birthday, my boyfriends birthday, and our anniversary so we decided to search for a good Miami spice menu to celebrate. My sister and my boyfriend had never been there so I was excited to show them a good meal at one of Miami's classic restaurants. For appetizers we had the Caesar salad, which is a must at Christys. As for our entrees we had the lamb and the filet mignon. Have to say I was hesitant it wouldn't be as good since the restaurant was so packed on a Wednesday, and we ordered from Miami Spice, but everything was truly amazing! We were able to enjoy drinks at the bar, And easily transferred the bill to our table once it was ready. We then paired our meal with a bottle of wine, our server was nice enough to recommended. I love coming here regularly, but it's nice to be able to take advantage of their menu for Miami Spice, especially for a hearty meal at half the price.
by desilux on August 23, 2017
Selection and miami spice great. Too busy for lack of attention from our waiter. Everything felt hurry up and wait. Not typical of christy service.
by OpenTable Diner on August 22, 2017
This location is just awesome! The escargot were great! Wine was perfect. My wife had the scallops and they were perfect. I had the filet mignon and it was a great piece of meat cooked as ordered. Finished with creme brulee and 30 year port. The chef spoke with us and let us know he would take care of how we wanted our dessert. The waiter Edgar was awesome in his service, manner and knowledge of the cuisine and drinks. Perfect, just perfect.
