We really enjoyed our meal at Area 31. I highly recommend the Korean steak tacos! Delicious. We were disappointed not to be able to sit outside because of the weather since the restaurant has a beautiful view. I hope the weather will cooperate next time!

It was our anniversary which I mentioned when I did the reservation.
It seems like no body knew about that. They messed up with the order for my wife (instead of risotto with salmon they brought it with shrimp, which was good, but still not what was ordered (fair to say they offered to replace the dish, but everyone at our table had food already and my wife decided to keep it).

Some of the glasses for water and Сhampagne were not clean (had some stains and lip stick on them), so we asked to replace them.

Good thing is that they decided to not charge us for our desserts, but I would prefer better service and clean tableware.

Our server took forever just to bring drinks out...we waited about 25 minutes and we had a reservation.

When the food came out, the portions were very tiny and average quality.

At the end of the meal, guests from the hotel that were on their balconies, were spitting down at tables. The table next to us had to move and the spit fell on my chest. Took forever to get the check and when the manager came out, he didn't even offer to discount or comp part of the check.

Over priced, over rated and definitely doesnt live up to the price. The only positive part of this was the views. They were beautiful.

Spicy tuna tacos and lobster roll outstanding as was the branzino. Branzino one of the better fish dishes anywhere. Tagliatelle with squid ink frutti de mare had two of the largest shrimp I've ever seen but pasta was a bit overcooked. No anchovies available for Caesar salad and for a high end restaurant like this that's unacceptable. Very good drinks and wine. Prices over the top but OK for a special occasion.

No one acknowledged us for 10 min at the door and it wasn’t busy. There was a worker “ that didn’t work there that was just helping out bc his hotel in nyc was closed” that knew we were waiting but didn’t say anything or atleast one moment someone will be with you. We were served water but the drinks took a while and there were only 4 tables inside w people including us( party of 3 ). They forgot about our 2nd appetizer. I had to send my steak back twice bc it was pink when I ordered well done. The jumbo shrimp weren’t good at all. It took 45 minutes to get the appetizer and we were finally prompted for our order bc the kitchen closed in 5 minutes. It also took 20 minutes to get the check bc of computer problems. Would not go back. It was my birthday also.

Waited almost 10 minutes to even get seated when it wasn't busy at all. We went on Valentine's Day with a reservation and were essentially greeting with a "what do you want?" type of attitude from our server. No formalities, no suggestions, no knowledge of menu items or cocktails or even brands of alcohol that they carry. I've had better service at Denny's and dive bars than I received at this so-called "upscale" place. I ordered an espresso martini which took about 15 minutes to receive and when I got it, it was basically just espresso vodka water with stale coffee beans on top with an excuse from the waiter saying "there were so many tickets at the bar..." The second drink I ordered was a simple whiskey ginger ale which I surely thought you can't screw up, but they found a way to. We ordered the croquettes as an appetizer which says it should be ham, cod, and cheese- 3 different ones- but they were all exactly the same, tasteless and about the size of a thumbnail for $14... Ridiculous. My wife and I both ordered the lobster and crab Benedict which we were both excited for until we tried to cut into it. The English muffin was so hard, you damn near needed a saw to get through it and the eggs that were supposed to be poached were basically hard-boiled. The crab and lobster salad was good as well as the potatoes but the preparation of everything else kind of ruined it. After our entree came out we didn't see our server again until about 20 minutes after we were finished with EVERYTHING and ready to leave. I had to get up and get him in order to ask for our check and he gave another "I didn't want to bother you" kind of excuse which, as a server myself, is no excuse. It's your job to "bother us" if you want to give the kind of service expected for the prices that this place is charging. This place could be a gem of they had any kind of standards in place but like most places in South Florida, they just don't give a damn. Props to the supporting staff though.

Everything was perfect, besides we didn’t know there is a dress code must have to dine in ! It wasn’t mentioned anywhere.
But we helped ourselves at the bar area. We are very grateful for that. It will be very helpful for other customers to mention dress code as a first priority before making the reservation.

But the whole experience was spectacular ! Thanks for all Bar Staff ! It was super busy, but they all did amazing job!

View is good, but it’s the same view from any tower around. We got the salmon and it was good, but the rest is hyped up. The ambiance was not the greatest. Server brought us empty plates for bread, but no bread. Chairs and tables look like lawn furniture. Restaurant needs major updating.
