    Loved the tasting menu! Such a creative, fun, and delicious dining experience. Ambiance with music selection was very much my style. Very contemporary. My only critique would be there were 2 duck dishes. I wish maybe the last dish was beef instead. Thank you for having us!

    Celebrated my birthday last night at Stubborn Seed and they made it very memorable! Food was outstanding and service was even better! It’s hard to pick one favorite but any course with an addition of caviar is always my favorite. My husband and I shared the wine pairing because I don’t drink very much. It was the perfect amount and selections were spot on. We will definitely be back when we are in the Miami Beach area!

    Would have been a great meal, but after confirming both in my profile and twice with the server about an allergy, they gave me food with the allergen in it. When I told the server at the beginning of the meal, he made a joke about it, then before the item was served I confirmed with him again and he said it was handled. When the item came, the allergen was removed in one form and not the other. It was not when the runner described the dish that I was informed it was in a second form on the dish. If the runner had not described the dish fully, I would not have known. The manager came over, apologized, gave us a round of drinks and a small discount to the bill, which was the right thing to do, but don't have the server make fun of me for an allergy, then after mentioning it three times (in the opentable profile, when we sat down and again before the dish came), still serve it to me. I overheard the table next to me have a similar issue with a pescatarian who twice confirmed, and she was served meat and the kitchen had to remake it. This could have been a great experience but the front of house and kitchen ruined it for us, totally.

     Our tasting menu adventure at stubborn seed in Miami was amazing from the drinks to the dessert. Kasandra our server and the rest of the team were knowledgeable, and fun. We loved every course but we were all a bit full by the time we got to the Wagyu beef. Hope to visit another time soon.

    Great dining experience but expensive for what you get. We sat at the high tops and it was very uncomfortable. Cocktails were great but also nothing to write home about. Glad we went but will likely not go again at this price point.

    Other than a very intoxicated man getting sat next to us about halfway through, the entire experience was glorious from the staff. Everyone seemed genuinely happy to be working there and knowledgeable about the food. I’d suggest a stronger policy on who can be in/out for somewhere that charges $175 just to sit down. The wine pairing was pretty phenomenal. I’ve never truly experienced wine changing the taste but would very much recommend it at this restaurant. Overall, would eat here again!
