    Good view but the price is to high compare to the quality of the plate. The proportions are too small expect for the main plates. 30$ for a small octopus and 20$ for small 6 oysters is a scam. The only good point is the view but again paying 200$ for two people doesn’t worth it.

    The menu did not have much selections and the food was bland. Yea the scenery is nice and the service was on point. However, none of that matters if the food sucks.

    Ok, let me put this into perspective. I was dining alone, and it was very close to my hotel. If I were with friends this review might be very different. 1. It took close to an hour for my entree to arrive. I ordered the short ribs. $55.00 for 2 short ribs. They were different from any other I have had. They were served meatloaf style.... covered in a tomato sauce. Not super juicy, too day the least. On the plate was tsatsiki (sp?) and pureed set potatoes. The tsatsiki was an odd choice, and the puree was barely a garnish. 2. I also ordered their mushrooms. The first time they arrived completely undercooked, and bland. The second time they were..ok. It was lovely sitting out on the rooftop deck, enjoying a miami evening. However, will I return...probably not

    Firstly, just the set up and view from the Resturant was amazing and even though there was music it was not too much to overpower your conversations or make you want to leave. The food was really good and the service was great and quick. The servers are very friendly and patient when you are deciding what to get. And the prices are reasonable. I must say if you are dining outside at night, it’s best to take a sweater because it gets chilly

    Food did not had the expected quality especially for the price paid. We had a birthday for which they gave us a very awkward firework. If you pay attention to a birthday do it good or don’t. Nice place to have food, if the food gets a bit better this place would be perfect to dine.

    The Good: The View, The Cocktails, The Company The Not So Good: the bone marrow was very forgettable, as was much of the food; when the waitress asked how it was and I said not that good and she grazed right over it and asked my date what he wanted to drink. Still enjoyed our time but wasn’t impressed with any of the food.

    My experience overall was very good. My husband and I went for my birthday - we had the grilled tiger shrimp and conch fritters for appetizers, and lamb chops and grilled Branzino for main course with mash and broccoli. The tiger shrimp and lamb chops were amazing, conch fritters and Branzino were okay but honestly their mash potatoes were to die for - the best I've ever had. The service was good except my server insisted on us taking 2 sides instead of 1 (one was just enough as the lamb came with some baby potatoes and the branzino came with a side salad), and also insisted on dessert - which we did not take. Not sure if the servers are trained to upsell but he was a bit pushy. Other than that he explained the menu very well and recommended drinks. Also we asked for regular water and ended up paying $10 for a bottle of water - bill was very pricy but for the view it was worth it. Best view in miami in my opinion.

    We enjoyed two dinners and breakfast at Area 31. All of our experiences were perfection. The food is high quality and every dish we had was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Our waiter Danny made our dinners so very special. Danny is a gem, so friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and just a delightful person. Our breakfast meals were excellent as well. Fresh fruit and perfectly prepared choices.

    We always enjoy our time at Area 31. The service and ambiance were amazing. The pancakes were fluffy and tasty, the eggs were perfectly prepared, and the protein was excellent. We also ordered some Old Fashions and a Bellinni they were great. We wished that there was a steak and egg option on the menu. Our only complaint is actually not with the restaurant, but with the hotel's valet. The valet area was a complete nightmare. It took over 30 minutes to get our car, and it was almost hit twice. The attendants were not responsive and not very friendly.

    Waiters were rude when we told them we were just there for drinks. Nothing on the menu looked appetizing at the moment and I don't think that's something to be shamed for. We got multiple drinks and tipped well.

    The view was spectacular, however, the food did not live up to standard. The lamb and ribs certainly were tender, but lacked flavor or seasoning; very bland. The lobster came out chilled with absolutely nothing on it. No butter, salt, or even pepper; It was cold and mushy. Other than that service was excellent as well as the drinks.
