I never make the time to post reviews on anything, but I must say...this restaurant left me with a lasting impression. From the mouthwatering food, spectacular view, and our incredibly attentive and helpful server, Frank. Being that it was our first time at the restaurant, we had no idea what to order, but Frank recommended all the right things. Initially... More

We made a last minute reservation on a Friday night and were extremely pleased. The entire staff from the hostess to the bartender were extremely courteous and professional. The waiter (Frank) was outstanding. The view was amazing and the food was delicious! Needless to say, we will be back.

We started with the kale Caesar and it was easily the best Caesar salad I've ever had! My husband had the bouillabaisse -- the ingredients were super fresh and it was very well prepared. The chef clearly knows what he is doing with shellfish. Due to my shellfish allergies 😩, I had the aged New York strip steak which was... More

All of frank suggestions hit the spot, and we couldn't have been any happier. He topped it off by suggesting a banana pie and tiramisu that were... More

I visited Area 31 almost a month ago and Chef Julian offered a special bone in cut. Naturally I went with his suggestion. It was the best steak I ever had. But for the sake of this review, I couldn't just try it once. I went back last week and he still had the same cut. To my amazement it... More

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.
