Great view and best time to go is Friday night for happy hour if you want the younger young professional crowd. One of the best spots for happy hour with a water/city view.

I traveled to Miami on business and was there for 6 days. I tried my best to sample all the different restaurants from smaller cafe style to more upper scale places. On a recommendation I went to Area 31 for dinner. I had a reservation for 8pm and was not seated until close to 8:30pm. The hostess acknowledged the wait... More

This is my first bad review We sat 20 minutes before we got a manager to find us a waitress. My husband told the waitress he is a recovering alcoholic; she brought him a drink from the bar with alcohol in it. We asked her to send us the manager(we knew who he was because he came with champagne to... More

My partner surprised me with a dinner date at Area31 for a celebration. Our reservation was a little early (6pm), which I definitely recommend: we had the dining terrace almost to ourselves with an incredible view of the sunset in downtown on one side and the moon over the beach on the other! Our server, Yikatarina, was so friendly and... More

The menu is cutting edge & interesting and the staff is very attentive. Great views, and you can work out at their nearby spa and then have a healthy lunch. Loved it.

I loved the open space at the terrace, offering an amazing night view of downtown Miami and the river below. The food was also great and it wasn't too expensive. Really recommend to try the ceviche!

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.
