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.

The Forge has been a fixture on Miami Beach for many years . Constantly reinventing itself, one thing that's standard is great food and service with a phenomenal wine list. The vueve Cliquot happy hour is a crowd pleaser on Friday night. Since Dad prefers a more intimate experience with the family, we choose to sit in the library, surrounded by gorgeous stained glass panels and whitewashed woodwork, we felt right at home. We loved the chopped salad, the meat eaters loved the steak, the lobster bisque with. Half a lobster was divine and the Dessert soufflés sublime. Anyone wanting a true Miami Beach experience must have a meal at the Forge !!!

We took advantage of a Travelzoo promotion and had dinner at the Forge. We did step away from the prix fixe menu. We had a lovely tuna tartare followed by beef tartare. Then the main event with onion soup with filet mignon. For desserts my wife had chocolate lava cake and I had the pineapple coconut panna cota. Our server was Ashley a recent transplant from Long Island. She was diligent and professional beyond her years. Ask for her you won't be disappointed. Plan to return.

We had a lovely dinner last night. We enjoyed everything included in the Gilt deal: the ceviche, the wedge salad, the filet mignon and the lava cake. And the Cabernet was good too. We also ordered the truffle mac & cheese and a glass of champagne with the dessert. Our server was Javier--he was great! He also made sure Gino, the sommelier, gave us a quick tour of the wine cellars. Miami Spice is coming up...drop by, it's worth it.

A great evening with friends in a historic slice of Miami Beach
The Forge was a go to for years back in the day for all sorts of special occasions. We haven't been in a long long time and decided to take advantage of a special offered on Travel Zoo.
We went with another couple on a Sunday evening and were seated in the main dining room. We were greeted by the server Analia immediately and she explained our options and brought us a delicious Cabernet and bread. I had the wedge salad to start which was a little heavy on the dressing but nice. The others had the ceviche and the onion soup which they enjoyed.
For our main course they ordered the filet and the linguine with clam sauce and I ordered the salmon. Apparently the salmon ran out and the subbed sea bass which turned out to be a bonus.
For dessert we had a choice of choc lava cake which was excellent and our friends had the coconut crime panna cotta which looked good too. Overall we were happy and received excellent service. Towards the end of the meal live entertainment appeared-a Barry White clone singing which I liked but it was a little hokey.
We asked Analia if we could see the wine cellars and she took us on a behind the scenes mini-tour of the wine rooms which was a huge bonus.
The forge has been a Miami Beach institution for as long as I can remember and we have some very fond memories. Of course the times have changed and maybe it's not the "it" place but it's still a beautiful and lavish dining experience.
