Overpriced food you can make at home. You’re just paying for the view out of the 16th floor.

Place was great. Took a date, she said "I appreciate." She became boisterous after the oysters.
The waiter looked like a skater, but his commentary was greater
Than what you'd expect.
He got the check, hundred on deck. My wallet is wrecked.
Parking sucked and it was 27 bucks.
Overall good in the hood.

Went for happy hour first - deceptive- only straight or single mix drinks are included - anything else was about $14+tax+20% tip added on. For bar bites, ceviche and croquetas were good. Very young crowd- early 20's. Then moved over to the restaurant which was empty at 8PM- almost no one inside and a handful of tables occupied outside. However, service was slow despite few patrons. Asked for bread which apparently is not usually provided- it wasn't brought to us until after we finished our entrees. Food was good but small portions with nothing else included. Didn't bother to stay for dessert. Valet parking $17 when validated (otherwise $22 so no bargain)- and the approach to the hotel/valet is a mob scene. Not worth it- won't go back.

I really enjoyed the enivorment; everything was fast pace. I chose this option for my pescatarian father and he said he enjoyed the meal. This is a great option for those who don’t eat but still enjoys seafood.

Great view, regular service, extremely small portions for the price.
They asked us to choose a side dish with some meals and then charged $10 each (?)
A wasted $480.00 dinner. Never more

Great view, but kitchen very mediocre. Party of 5, 1 starter forgotten. Ordered a second bottle of wine, not a cheap one and that was sold out. Took at least 45 minutes to get another one.
Waitress tried her best, but was stressed and/or overloaded.
Preprinted gratituide of 20% was a joke !

 (Miami)·Dined on December 25, 2017

Worst service imaginable. Food is mediocre and over priced. No one informed me of free valet. I made reservations for Christmas Day one week in advance, called the day prior to confirm operations and hours would be the same as usual (I’ve visited in the past) the hostess I spoke to stated operations would resume as usual. The day of at 1:18 pm I received a call confirming my 1:30 reservation while I was en route. The hostess over the phone told me the restaurant will close at 2 pm and that I must arrive prior. I was frustrated because the confirmation was minutes before the reservation and I had called the day prior to avoid having my Christmas lunch ruined. Very disappointed by the service I received once I arrived (on time) they ran out of the ceviche I ordered, I was told 20 min later and the complimentary lunch valet was not communicated by any of the staff I encountered. Service was a disgrace.

I took my wife to Area 31 for her birthday and it was a very good time. We were seated in the outside area and the view and ambiance was great. The food was pricey but very much worth it. They also have a happy hour with an outdoor bar that is separated from the outdoor dining area. So you can hear music playing while sitting outside without have to stand at the bar. Overall this place was very nice. I guess my only issue would be the waiter placing a 20% gratuity on the check which is usually reserved for a party of 6 or more. Not a big issue as I customarily tip 20% or more anyways, but the assumption was a little annoying. I'm not sure if they usually add 20% gratuity's for parties of 2 or if he thought he wasn't gonna get a tip so he went ahead and placed it on the check. Make sure you leave early for your reservation as there is a bridge right by the location that always seems to be up. This backs traffic up and probably adds 5 to 10 minutes to your travel time.

Our group of six friends had an outdoor table and thought the nighttime urban setting was impressive. My tuna ceviche followed by swordfish both were excellent, and everyone else in my party seemed very pleased with their respective choices. Great wine selection, too. After a somewhat slow start to service, the pace and attention picked up for the rest of the evening. I had opted for Area 31 for dinner on a one-night stay in Miami, and received lots of praise for my choice.

This restaurant has beautiful views of downtown Miami besides the food is fantastic. I took my wife there for her birthday and she loved it. We had a good time at the pool after dinner, the hotel throws a happy hour there for free with music very nice. The only thing I didn't like was the valet parking I found it over price for 29dllrs was expecting 20 so if you don't want to pay 29 go with a small car or park some place else because mid size cars go for 29 charge

The service was way below what we expected. The server was short worded, and not at all helpful when ordering from the menu. The food was not out of the ordinary, ambiance and location was good.
