Of all the rooftops I have been in my life this has been the worst (after 230 5th ave 1st place) the manager is the worst, he dosnt have the minimum notion of management, We went for a Thursday's tapas ads but they had NOTHING so we decided to only drink cocktail because they didn't have tapas or appetizers, Then the manager sent us to say that we couldn't be at the table if we didn't order dinner because the tapas are only in the bar area but they would make that day an EXCEPTION, I said Its not necesary because I rather the bar , but the answer was Its not possible because the bar is closed. I want to highlight that in the whole place there were only 3 occupied tables. the manager instead of being grateful, preferred to be useless and rude... only good thing was the view, the waiter was good ...the cocktails are regular. The situation was terrible!!!

When it comes to Valet parking & stamping your ticket the hostess & the server should be admit to let you kno because once you pay valet without the stamp you can’t get a refund once you pay then try to go back and get a valet stamp. It’s Impossible, the valet will make a big about it. It’s pure robbery!

Worst new year eve experience ever! We reserved the new year eve package that costs $250 per person. Our reservation was at 9pm, we arrived at 8:45 but we didn’t get seated until 10:30 even though the seats have been ready for quite a while. Other guests have also been waiting for at least 30min. The entrance was crowded with people waiting with no social distancing and many ppl have no mask which is proper considering the price we pay for this meal. Definitely will not come back and will not recommend this place.

Not sure if there was a perfect storm for them on New Years Eve. My husband and I was looking forward to the 5 course special for New Years Eve. It was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!! The wait staff was unorganized. I had to request bread for the table. Food was delivered to the wrong table twice. Waiters did not refill drinks due to lack of attendance. The food runners would drop food off of plates as they were being delivered . The most downfall was that the food took forever to come out and when it did finally arrive it was lukewarm. Not to mention tasteless. The service received was not worth the $150 per person. If it wasn't for the city view we would of left. My waiter would not have received a tip but since it was already included on the tab he got lucky. A waste of time...... I do not recommend!!!

Service was awful, we had a reservation for 5 and the got us in atable for four and add a chair, table was too small for the 5 of us. On top of that we wew waiting for about 1/2 before they even offer us something to drink, we had to wait over an hour for the food after ordering and when they finally serve it, it was cold and tasteless. Also it was espensive. Food and service definetily doesn’t worth what they charge. Never will go again

I was looking at homes to purchase over thanksgiving week. I went here thanksgiving night I did t know it but it was fixed price $139 per person. The meal was average at best. The service was great and so was the view. I wish I could have had a better menu to choose from.

Best French toast and strongest mimosas we’ve ever had. But be prepared to pay. A tab we thought would only be $60 was actually 2x that. I’d definitely still go back, though! Loved the ambiance!

I took my Fiancé out to Area 31 for a celebratory dinner of our fresh engagement. I had proposed earlier that same day (CLOUD 9!!) and had dinner reserved for this location and it was the 2nd best decision I made that day! Valet car drop off and pick-up was smooth and quick considering we were amidst a Tropical Storm! Food was delicious. Ordered the 10Oz Petite Steak. Chimichurri was on point! The view was spectacular and so was the service. Marcus, our waiter, was Top Notch 5-Star service. He made that night even more special with surprise champagne and cheesecake! I would love to return for another dinner even if it just casual. Worth every penny!

The servers here are just wonderful. Big thanks to chef Carlos for such an amazing dinner menu. This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Miami. Love it all, highly recommended.

Food was good. Excellent Goat cheese salad.

Service was so-so considering there were few diners in the restaurant. It was a birthday and they did not offer anything even though we let them know in the reservation. The waiter did not check in enough. We tipped 30% even though we did not get great service and no response from the waiter after viewing the bill.

The parking is crazy expensive at this hotel $44, luckily I asked about the validation which reduced it to $17 but still expensive. The part that was disappointing is that no one offered to validate my parking I had to hunt down someone to do it.

Noise from the street is very loud. We won't be returning.

Very nice place for a anniversary or a birthday.
The only thing that I found bad was that they didn’t have the appetizer that I wanted which was “Spanish Croquetas” or the dessert that I wanted which was “ lava cake” . But other than that the food and the service was great.

Awesome views. Good drinks, service was nice. The Epic Burger of wagyu meat, this was one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Very tasty. My husband had the morroccan chicken, he said it was okay. They were out of the Spanish croquettes. I would recommend this place. Got our valet receipt validated and received a discount. Took about 30 minutes to retrieve the car..very crowded.
