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!

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.

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

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 =)

I am happy our wedding was at Rusty Pelican. We worked with Stacey and she really is on point. She is so organized and detailed with everything. Any question we had, she quickly responded. It is pricey, but you can't find anywhere in Miami with that view and service. The food was great and we were able to take some to go and eat at our honeymoon suite. Truly loved having our wedding there, hope to go there for each anniversary for years to come!

My fiance and I chose the Rusty Pelican after being there for a bridal expo earlier in the year. The views alone were breathtaking and the staff was very welcoming. Within a week we booked the venue and from that moment on, Stacey Gershon, our coordinator communicated with us on a regular basis. She provided all necessary info and was very clear on the terms of the comtract. The food tasting blew us away as they were very professional and the food tasted amazing. The day of our wedding we were running VERY late and got to the venue about a half hour before the ceremony was set to begin. Stacey and her team immediately jumped in and offered assistance and ended up helping with any last minute details that were forgotten. The ceremony started on time and the venue looked beautiful. We could not have asked for a better team as they were very much willing to help with whatever we needed. More importably, our guests had a great time and I received very positive comments about everything from the food, to the views, to the staff.

The Banquet Room at the Rusty Pelican looked impressive, beautifully decorated, with that extraordinary view of the Bay, unique of this venue.

The service level of the entire staff was optimal, with many of our guests commenting about the special attention they felt they received at all times. We particularly appreciated the catering manager's presence from the time we arrived until we felt very comfortable that every aspect was under absolute control.

The food was of extraordinary quality and taste, from the hors d'oeuvres, diligently passed around by the servers, to the main menu and dessert.

Having the perfect weather, which allowed a most spectacular view of the Biscayne Bay, absolutely delighted our guests, many having experienced a particularly cold winter up north.

We also appreciate the great logistical coordination with the other vendors, allowing us to enjoy the party without any worries.

Great place for any important event in your life!!

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.

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!
