They gave our sides to another table. They didn’t provide proper silverware for our escargots or desserts. They staff unlike the past they were not friendly or attentive in any way from the front desk on.

An iconic restaurant in Coral Gables - great steaks, seafood, and salads/sides. Great wine selection. Best service in South Florida. Very romantic, yet also good for groups and friends. Easy street parking and great location.

Perfect bday dinner!

Dinner was amazing! The food was spectacular, and the service impeccable! The Miami spice menu selection was delicious.

Surprisingly noisy; service and friendliness of greeter has slipped; food still great.

As always, delicious food and outstanding service.

Went for our 29th Anniversary on Sept 10th, probably 25 years in a row other than last year because of the Hurricane. The service was spot on and the food was fantastic.

i think Christy's has slipped a bit. When main courses without trimmings are north of $50 expectations which are high should be met. the service was adequate but not particularly attentive. the bread basket was bordering on stale [ possibly from re-heating ] the rack of lamb had an odd sweetish glaze and the chops were more fatty than they should have been.

Classic steakhouse in Coral Gables and so darn consistently really really good. Not inexpensive at all but so worth the splurge. Although we didn't order off the Miami Spice menu that was affordable with nice options. Server was very unbelievably attentive (I believe his name was Herni not sure that was it, he was from Haiti and so professional) Shrimp cocktail (huge shrimp) was awesome, Caesar salad great, Ribeyes perfectly cooked, potato agratin great and baked Alaska a unique treat. You can't go wrong in this non changing restaurant... sometimes no innovation is a great thing! Love Christy's and if I want a great steak she's my go to!

Went to Christys for Miami Spice. Great experience

First timer... The Rack of lamb was very good . The Filet Mignon was dry, and with a sauce on top that did not complement the meat. I can say just an average experience. I parked on a side street kind of sketchy.

Food was delicious, my friends were very happy with their meals

I have always enjoyed dining there in the past however, it was extremely hot in the restaurant. We asked to speak to a manager twice and he never bothered coming to our table. It was uncomfortable due to the heat and so we really did not enjoy our evening. The a.c. was definitely not working properly.The food was good but very disappointing that a manager never even bothered to address our discomfort. Unless the air is repaired, i would not go back.

Elegant surroundings and professional staff. Great cocktails and wine list. Cannot beat the Caesar salad and tender steak. Loved it!

Great food
by MarkH on August 29, 2018
i have visited Christy's many times. I went more frequently when I worked in Coral Gables, and my wife and I love the memories and great experiences we always have. I would say their food quality is exceptional on a 1-10 it's always 10. My Wife and i make sure we visit on every birthday, anniversary, graduation, and special occasion.

Decided to go to Christy’s for my boyfriend’s birthday. We ordered off of the Miami Spice menu, which is a great value. The food was delicious and filling. The drinks were perfect and the baked Alaska for dessert was fun and tasty. The service is great, we will definitely go back!

Consistently good
by DebraT on August 25, 2018
Christy’s offers a beautiful, classic setting to sit back & enjoy an evening with family or friends....the food is prepared to perfection! The wine list offers something for every taste....Every detail of our dining experience from food to service was carried out to perfection!
by JamesM on August 25, 2018
Service was excellent and food was prepared very well. Had decent Miami Spice menu choice as well.

Very Good overall, nice miami spyce Menu. The Ceasar salad excellent as always
by KimberlyG on August 24, 2018
Always a fabulous meal and a great experience.
by LuisG on August 22, 2018
Food was good. Service not so good. Item on the menu not available. Very disappointed. Background noise was not pleasing. I think there has been a change in the main chef, that may very well have had a lot to do with the experience.

I have been going to Christys for many years and was very disappointed in the quality of service and the quanty, the mashed potatoes were good but maybe 2 tbs.and two very small carrots maybe they were for decoration. I asked for the baked alaska and told it was not part of the meal. Iwould have been happy to pay extra and the Caesar salad was soggy and anchoives were not offered. Lastly the service was not good as as mint jelly was not served was requested and served by another waiter. Water glasses were not filled and when we arrived at4;55pm door was locked and it was very hot outside, knocked on the door and not opened until until a little after 5;00. I hope this gives you insight and I attribute this to Miami Spice and I don't eat big meals but would pay more for quality. Thank you.

I’ve been going to Christie’s since 1987 every year for our Anniversary but this year the service was horrible our waitress didn’t even know how to open the bottle wine and almost dropped wine on my husbands white shirt. And the food was ok nothing to brag about.
by YasminaR on August 18, 2018
Service was excellent ! Great place to celebrate an anniversary. Enjoyed the food.
by CarolS on August 18, 2018
Excellent miami spice menu with good choices. Service was very efficient and timed well. Enjoyable meal.
by OpenTable Diner on August 17, 2018
Went to Christy's for the Miami Spice menu. Service was excellent. Both my wife and I ordered the filet mignon. I ordered mine medium rare and my wife medium well. Mine was excellent, but my wife said hers was a little too salty. The potatoes that came with it were in my opinion too salty. The desserts were delicious. I had the 5 nut brownie and my wife had the key lime pie. Service was top notch. Never had to ask for a refill on my drink.
by StephenP on August 17, 2018
A "go to" spot for a good menu and perfect service. A well researched wine list -- and overall, always dependable.
by JohnH on August 16, 2018
I didn’t enjoy this. Coming from Dallas, there are several great steakhouses. I’m used to a delicious cut of steak and awesome sides, and large indulgent desserts to complete the meal. My ribeye had lots of fat pockets, not well marbled. The sides were boring. Mac and cheese, brussel sprouts, and mashed potatoes. After our table of 4 finished the basket of 4 rolls, they didn’t offer more. The desserts were small and just not great. And the service was polite, but intrusive while we were in the middle of conversation. Won’t be back when I come to Miami.

We had a great experience at Christy’s for my husband’s birthday. The service was courteous and prompt. The food on the Miami’s Spice menu was well worth the price. I ordered the lamb which had an amazing yogurt dipping sauce and was seasoned and cooked to perfection. My husband had the filet mignon and was not disappointed. The icing on the cake was that they brought out one of the desserts with a sparkler and provided the perfect celebration for his birthday.
by KristaS on August 13, 2018
I was very impressed with the quality of the food but the service was awful. It took an unreasonable amount of time to get our food and we were never even served bread. Getting our server's attention was extremely difficult as he never seemed to be near our table. Our reservations were for 7:45 and we didn't leave the restaurant until closing time at 10. I would understand if we had been a party of 10 but it was only a group of 5 people. The food, however, was delicious. I had the Caesar salad for an appetizer, lamb for my entree, and the five nut brownie for dessert. I highly recommended all of these dishes. The lamb was cooked to perfection and served with a mint yogurt sauce that complimented it perfectly. The brownie was served warm with ice cream and a sea salt caramel drizzle. I'd give this place a much better rating if it weren't for the bad service.
by JamesH on August 13, 2018
Excellent, thoughtful service. Food very good.
by Stevenk on August 11, 2018
This is one of the reliable old traditional Coral Gables restaurants. Never a bad meal or service. Suggest the lamb chops, shrimp coctail and baked Alaska. Reservations suggested. Limited parking. Nice atmosphere.
by ArmandoE on August 11, 2018
Do not recommend for Miami Spice. Portion are reduce considerably.
by TMT3 on August 10, 2018
We always like Christy's. We took advantage of Miami Spice. I had Cesar salad and *8 once-Filet*. which was cooked perfect to my taste. They had Lychee Matinee, which is one of my favorite cocktails. A glass of Sangiovese was perfect pair to the filet. Unfortunately we were surrounded by 3 tables which were so loud and noisy. Our server was charming, efficient, and nice.
by MC11 on August 4, 2018
Food, Service, Ambience was outstanding. Nothing negative to say. Christies is always an A+ experience.
by JanetteG on August 4, 2018
We love Christys and go there often However on Saturday we were still enjoying our salads when they delivered our main courses - and just put them on the table We felt rushed and did not enjoy he experience as we normally do Pls ensure wait staff are not shoving the food at you so to turn tables. This is not what we expect at Christy Thank you

Excellent atmosphere, great service , outstanding food, a very well attended bar. We went for a family get together, we made the right decision picking up this place, definitely will go back.
by RonaldL on August 2, 2018
One can always count on greatly prepared food at a fair value at Christy's. Going duing Miami Spice just makes the value become outstanding! Sure one might want to try the current"in" location, but Christy's is always a place I trust. My only complaint is that seating feels cramped and the noise level is louder than desired. (Maybe the latter is caused by the former.) Nevertheless, I keep going back when I want a perfectly cooked steak - even when it is not Spice.
by GlennW on July 28, 2018
Christy's is one of my all-time favorites. Best Ceasar Salad in Miami. Christy's knows how to pour a real drink!! Don't miss the potato skins. Everything was fabulous.
by Jimbo on July 28, 2018
It was not the best service experience as my friend called and was told we could use Miami Spice menu.
by OscarL on July 27, 2018
It’s an amazing place! The art colection is impressive! Food, wine and services pretty good!
by DebbieH on July 21, 2018
Love Christy’s! Wish they would reopen Redfish Grill!
by HaroldR on July 20, 2018
food was incredible and I must say the Caesar's Salad is still tops. Note, the restaurant used to prepare the salad table side but no longer, it is prepared in the kitchen. I was looking forward to added attraction; but those days are gone. The side of $13.00 scalloped potatoes was excellent. All in all the price for 2 persons was $296.00 (included a 20% tip) ... Not for my budget; but a great evening.

Great as always
