Area 31 - Epic Hotel
Book your next event with us
Great place to sit outside and fine dine, especially for sunset
It was good place but overpriced. Otherwise fine.
We popped in for a short visit and ordered a couple apps and they were just okay. We were surround by the beautiful tall building full or lights and the sunset peaking through. Our server that night was Chelsey who was new to Miami but made a great recommendation for us to visit Wynwood Walls. She was attentive and sweet.
Muy lindo lugar con una vista única! Cenamos afuera, todo excelente
Great, kind Andrzej fruendly staff
The restaurant was extremely backed up taking room service orders for the Hotel.
But overall the food was very good and the servers were apologetic.
Offered only buffet and place was dirty and no dress code in place. The choice of food was better in my own kitchen. For a New Year’s Day brunch it was a disgrace
I went on New Year’s Day for breakfast with my wife and parents, they had offer a breakfast buffet which was good but we went actually for the brunch menu, which they didn’t have it on New Year’s Day I guess (disappointed ☹️) however, the breakfast was delicious, the price was fair, and the views were amazing, I think I would be paying it a visit at night time to enjoy the view.
Booked for NYE only to arrive to be told there was only a buffet at 150pp no drinks/alcohol inc.
The staff on the restaurant reception did not even know what was available on the buffet when I asked apart from it being 3 courses so we had NYE hotel room service. Not quite the NYE we had in mind.
The hotel needs to not advertise NYE menus online or availability on OpenTable if there is only a buffet available through Eventbrite.
Very disorganised- many left disappointed.
Had to ask for a drink 6 times because our server kept forgetting
Overall absolutely excellent. Be ready for a large bill, but worth it.
I recently dined at Area 31 to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday with her. The experience was absolutely incredible! René, the manager, seated us at a window-front table with a spectacular view of the city. René was hospitable and very gracious during our entire experience. Julio, our server, was speedy and attentive to our every need. The food was incredibly fresh and tasty. We especially enjoyed the Seafood Tower. Afterwards, my girlfriend and I went outside to enjoy a cocktail and cigar with a magnificent perspective of the entire city. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and I can’t wait to go back!
Recommend for the view ! Otherwise, the food is good, a little bit too expansive for what it is in my opinion... Bad point for me is that we had a reservation at 8pm and immiediately when some of us arrived, they told us that we had to order because the kitchen was closing soon but not all of our friends were here yet. So we had to order for them and it wasn't so good to feel "rushed" like that, I mean if we knew we would have taken an earlier reservation !
The atmosphere was rather quiet and not very exciting. We preferred Zumba which was on the first floor. The atmosphere was lively, dark, and fun. The appetizers of salad with mozzarella and the pork belly were very good. The entrees were disappointing. My husband did not like his pork cheeks which is the most tender part of the pork. I had fish. It was OK.
Don’t get the seafood tower!!! Put in for birthday occasion seem no one got the memo. Reservation for 4 give us small. Didn’t offer to validate our parking had to went up to get parking validated
sticker shock is not what one should expect particuarly when you have a limited item menu. octopus was raw, chewey, expensive like the rest of the apps and main items.
house wine pour 4oz was $18...come on...?!
1) The service was slow and sparse.
2) The food was well presented (great presentation by the Chef) but cold (below room temperature).
3) Very chewy Octopus and luke warm
Not a great food experience but appears to be a great place and vibe.
Awesome place for a date or to be with friends.
Outstanding service and ambience. Will come back 😃
Very convenient inside my hotel.
Food was OUTSTANDING!
Incredible rooftop views!
Very Nice!! Love the ambiance
The food options were not enough, food was just ok, and parking at the hotel was headache. Valet was $17 with a voucher and I had to wait a long time just to reach valet.
We stayed at the hotel and received a 20% discount for dinner at Area 31. We sat outside with a great view of downtown. The drinks were very syrupy — something I would expect at a college bar ladies' night. Food was bland, with no real flavor. Everything was fresh but seemed to have no real culinary influence. Prices were on par with the most excellent Michelin rated restaurants. Curious, they don't offer 20% off Zuma... I think the hotel is aware of the sub-par product offered at Area 31 but bank on enough people falling for the offer based on the Zuma reputation. We would recommend a pass on this Tourist Trap.
Nothing Epic!!! Was in town and staying at the hotel, so decided to stay in the first night. We expected a whole lot more from a 5 star hotel, and especially the area. Would definitely not eat here again, especially with all of the other local options available. The cost/value equation just wasn't there, and nothing on the menu, nor what we had set off the sensometer. I would recommend the grilled octopus appetizer though, best part of the meal. Disappointing, as we were looking for a whole more, and Area 31 just didn't deliver.
Menu is limited. Speakers were super loud by our table and it was hard to hear.
Great Thanksgiving Day buffet.
Our Server was outstanding and he is what made the day sincerely. He was attentive, fun, focused, really a pleasure dealing with him. His name is Dany. He is the reason we want to go back!
The hotel was nice and the ambiance was very good. The person that was helping our table was very entertaining. However, we went for a thanksgiving brunch that was advertised on the webpage and they didn't have that brunch any longer. apparently they used to have it in past years. the food was good, not great but it took more than 45 minutes to get breakfast food. the location is amazing but the overall experience not great.
The food was very good, but a little expensive. We sat on the patio, which was nice, but the disco was loud. Service was good, but uneven. At times the waiter was very attentive, at others nowhere to be seen.
Spectacular views of the city and delicious food. The server was wonderful and made great food/drink recommendations. She also provided Prosecco on the house for my husband’s birthday. Highly recommend!
Beautiful settings and view atop majestic Miami. We visited for my cousin’s birthday on a cousins day out. Really good food and service
Excelente comida muy buen servicio recomendadisimo
The food was overpriced for what we received. Very disappointing. Valet is unorganized and we had to go up to restaurant 2x to get out validation for valet service when they could’ve just called them directly. It’s a shame the restaurant was disappointing because the view is amazing. Sorry but not worth the $$$.
Great view, lively atmosphere, good food and drinks
Highly recommend that if you stay at the Kimpton Epic hotel that you go to Area 31. Great menu and amazing food. Atmosphere is spectacular
Very average and the guest were load and low class
It was a double birthday... one 76 year old and his 13 year old grandson.
We loved it all and the staff went out of their way to make us feel special.
Everyone very nice, our waitress very knowledgable on the different plates overall great experience
Such an amazing experience. The views are incredible which create an unforgettable atmosphere. This is our second time dining here. We will definitely be returning
