The food was delicious. I highly recommend the grilled octopus. All of the cocktails and wine we tried were excellent, and the deconstructed creme brûlée was wonderful. The views and our server Dawn put our experience over the top!

Dawn did an excellent job of serving us. We ordered several drinks/appetizers and meals, and she gave great recommendations throughout the process. I would come here again and request Dawn as my waitress.

We were a dinner party of 6. We started outside but needed to move inside due to weather. Outside can be beautiful unless it's ruined by someone smoking a cigar on the other side of the patio. Unfortunately, they are allowed to. We arrived at...More

Amazing night views! Personnel was attentive and very friendly. Making the dinner reservation via the hotel's concierge was smooth and quick. The service was great, the food itself was nothing super special but good nevertheless :) Worth a visit!

I dined at Area 31-had the swordfish- not bad. The highlight of the restaurant was the service. My waiter although I promised and tried to remember her name -it was Russian- really impressive and helpful

Description
Chef Driven. Ocean Inspired. Local flavor. We have a unique perspective here on the 16th floor, allowing us to see everything that makes Miami famous. Then we hand it to Executive Chef Wolfgang Birk to make into something even more remarkable. Area 31's panoramic vistas provide the wow factor, but Chef Birk's elegant yet approchable cuisine draws full attention to the plate, as avid diners anticipate what his worldly influences and fresh inspiration will cook up next. Keeping it fresh is a big part of Area 31, and that includes sourcing ingredients from our favorite local vendors. While it's preferable to come here hungry, we're always happy to share the view with you over cocktails and people-watching from our spectacular outdoor Terrace Lounge. Habitually innovative, often breathtaking and always welcoming, Area 31 is here to make sure you're never more than an elevator ride from a singular Miami experience.
