I went for lunch with a business client, food was not worth the money being charged.

Server Zack was very good. The team very attentive. The view is amazing and romantic. I had one issue, but I tried to look past it.

The bar area was great, especially the view of brickell. We were under the impression that the restaurant closed at 11 since that’s what google says. They closed at 10 and we arrived at 9:30 and our waiter tried to convince us to go downstairs to eat instead. I was apologetic for us showing up at 9:30 but the hours online were wrong. I understand they wanted to go home but it seemed unprofessional he tried to convince us to leave.

The hostess would not seat us until all were there even though we had a reservation we had confirmed twice. Long wait for server to take order. Another long wait for the food. So noisy was hard to hear each other. But the food was very good. Wine prices are quite inflated. Server was helpful but seemed quite taxed. The phone line is difficult as it is necessary to go through hotel switchboard.

Great food, great ambiance. Parts of the building under construction so it takes away a bit from the experience.

It was my husband birthday and i want to surprise him with something romantic and nice..! I googled and area 31 showed up at the first in the list..
Even if we live here in miami, the view was amazing..! Probably the only thing good after the drinks.. the food is nothing out of this world.. but before going there, i was reading the reviews about this place and i was kind of prepared for it.. so.., i didnt get surprised about the size of the meals.. the taste of the food was ok but the portions were really small..also they don't sing the happy birthday song but if you ask for a dessert, they put a sparking candle in the middle .. cocktails were really good.. SUNSET is the best in handcrafted cocktails menu.

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.

Food is average and overpriced - But the reason to dine there is the view of Brickell Avenue and the Miami River - Great location for a date and take photos -

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

Dinner: Main meal and quality of side dishes had been really excellent!

Wine somewhat overpriced.

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 !

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.

Nice atmosphere and good service. View is awesome - specially if you don’t live in a big city - but the food is ok.
