Mediterranean
Once the name of The Surf Club’s restaurant prior to its reimagination, chosen for evoking the leisurely lifestyle of an Italian summer, Lido Restaurant at The Surf Club celebrates its place as the best oceanfront dining experience in the Miami Beaches, offering a menu of simple and authentic Mediterranean cuisine from sunrise to sunset. Delight in the largest selection of Champagnes in Miami and an exciting mixology program led by Head Bartender Valentino Longo at The Champagne Bar.

On Sundays, Lido’s sun-kissed terrace sets the scene for the La Dolce Vita Brunch with live music and Southern Italian traditions served tableside. The alfresco experience begins with an aperitivo and assortment of charcuterie, cheeses and hand-cut Crudo served family-style. The main, Mediterranean takes on classic brunch fare. The finale, the Dulcis in Fundo dessert room.

Great food preparation, terrific ambience, a miss on the service this time, but always an enjoyable experience. Salmon, tuna tartare, burrata, and desserts all special. When we called regarding corkage we were told $50 and were charged $75 when bill arrived. didn't want to embarrass our guests so didn't make a big deal. Server was a bit spacey having to be called back to give pepper. Our table was a bit on the "pay me no mind" list.

If I could give Lido more stars, I would. Flavors were sumptuous, service was impeccable.

Just not what I expected. Appetizers were great but super small portions. Drinks were just OK. Entrees were nothing to write home about. Def chose the wrong restaurant inside the four seasons to go to. Will not be back

Very frustrating experience. For our surprise, La Dolce Vita Brunch - featured at the Four Seasons website - is no longer available, which was informed only when we were already seated. They currently offer a regular a la carte menu, with some unavailable items (like the crab Benedict).
Service was very slow and confusing. Hostess seemed lost and servers didn't know how to explain the change in the menu.
Good ambience, but food was just regular. Really not worth the visit if you are expecting a brunch experience. And also not worth the U$ 35 valet service.

We got seated in a corner table and the waiter took forever to get our drinks. I normally have great service at Lido but this time it was not good—going to take a break from Lido for awhile.

Fantastic service, ambience and menu. Lido is in many ways a better dining experience than the adjacent Surf Club.

The waitstaff at Lido is phenomenal and the new specialty cocktail menu very creative. Food is always superb.

We loved Le Sirenuse and had been going regularly for years. It looked like very little had changed in Lido. Boy, were we wrong! The food is…bad. Even the dinner rolls were bad. Service was outstanding and setting is beautiful but wow the food sucks.

Great service. Nice view.
Every dish we tried was just OK.
High prices and small portion sizes.

Similar high end restaurants in Miami have much better food.

Food was completely average and extremely expensive for what it was. I expect to pay a lot at the Four Seasons, but I also expect much higher quality. The service was slow and not very sharp and professional for a restaurant that is supposed to be high caliber. Overall, disappointing and pricey!
