The Rusty Pelican (Miami, FL) was wonderful. It was a beautiful venue and the person who worked with my family during the entire wedding process was wonderful. The day of the wedding, everyone was very attentive. I highly recommend this location.

This venue was wonderful. From the view to the multiple spaces for ceremony, hors dourves, reception and the planner. Everything went without a hitch for a perfect day. Even the weather cooperated. I would use Rusty Pelican again in a minute!

A gorgeous waterfront venue with exceptional food and service! I worked with Ana Maria Martinez and her team and all our guests claimed this was best wedding ever! We set up a wedding area on the terrace followed by dinner and dancing in the ballroom with a gorgeous view. Ana Maria was helpful in making vendor recommendations and very responsive to us at all times. Every guest is a VIP here and that makes the difference.

I have nothing but amazing things to say about The Rusty Pelican and it's staff. My wedding coordinator's name is Stacey Gershon and she has been such a dream to work with. She is very prompt with answering questions whether they are via email or telephone. She has been very accommodating to my family and I during the planning process and we are so grateful for that! The staff has catered to us at every pre- wedding meeting. Every time we have stopped into the restaurant to eat, the food is always so fresh and delicious. I really have nothing negative to say about my experience with Rusty Pelican.

You will never get a view like the one you see in their ballroom, anywhere else in Miami! With amazing views and amazing service, you cannot go wrong!

Great service, but that goes without saying. This place has been doing weddings and events for years, and for a good reason- they know how to sell and how to please. The upstairs view is gorgeous and we are excited for our out-of-town guests

Overall our experience with the Rusty Pelican was great. The set up on the day of the wedding was beautiful and they upgraded us to chiavari chairs for our ceremony at no cost. I was a little disappointed that they did not give us the correct side dish with our dinner meal but the other food was really good. One of the bartenders at the reception was a little bit rude to some of our guests which was a little disappointing as well. Ana Maria was great through out the process and helped us along the way.

We absolutely loved having our wedding at the Rusty Pelican. You can't beat the views in Miami, the food is great, and the service went above and beyond what I expected. They made for a perfect and fun evening, allowing us to stay for an extra hour because our guests were having a blast. Ana Maria was great to work with. Very responsive (even when she was out of the office!) I highly recommend the Rusty Pelican we had a wonderful experience.

We used the Rusty Pelican's smaller room on the first floor for our Rehearsal Dinner event. We had 32 guests, beer/wine/champagne, and a buffet style meal. All of the food was outstanding - we got soo many compliments from our guests! Although this smaller room does not have the amazing Miami skyline views, there is a great wrap around walk way that our guests used to spend some time outside looking across the water to the city. Simply beautiful.
The service was fantastic. There was plenty of staff to support our group, and they saw to every need with a smile. We were also welcomed at the front entrance as we got out of the cars by gentlemen that showed us and the guests to our room.
My mother-in-law set up all the arrangements, so I don't know too much about that process except that she did seem to be a little frustrated a few times because the contracts she was sent lacked the changes she had discussed with the coordinator.There were no issues on the day of, so obviously everything was worked out. Overall, we had a great time here!! Definitely a wonderful way to kick off the wedding weekend =)

The location was beautiful we got married outside by the water and the view was amazing. The people were all very nice and helped me through everything. When the wedding was coming to an end they did not rush us to leave or anything and they did not begin to set up for the next wedding until after everyone from my wedding was gone.

The venue is very pretty but the people who work there are questionable. I started dealing with someone who got fired a few weeks after we had put our deposit, so someone else took charge of our event and she forgot almost everything we discussed including the food that we were having. So we had to go over ever single detail with her several times which was unpleasant. Also some of our wedding cards where missing after the wedding and when my husband and I went back to the venue to see the camera, we were told that there wasn't a camera where we had our gift table, so not sure if their employees stole them. Nice place overall, good food, and view.

I had the absolute please of working with Stacy at Rusty on January 15, 2016 for Barbie & Jorge's wedding!
I have so many great things to say about Stacy and her team I don't know where to begin!
She is definitely a great individual to work alongside!
Incredibly professional! Has great communication skills! Is always on point!
And was always willing to help me with anything I needed.
Followed the timeline to the T.
And most importantly made sure that the BRIDE & GROOM were taken care of in every-way!

Thank you Stacey! It was such a pleasure to work with you! Can't wait to do it again!
