We shared a deep fried fresh whole Red Snapper and Arugula Salad. It was delicious. We would have appreciated a bread offering and were disappointed by its absence. Our Cheese Cake and Cafe Brûlée desserts were very tasty. All told we enjoyed our meal.

They closed the outdoor even when it was not raining and service would be better if they improved it.

We had to ask for a change of a plate, because the meat was burned and the waitress was not friendly.

Bad hotel food. Music was nice but way too loud for a tile floor space and tables of 10. Food was mediocre.

Food was ok. Really booked this place for the view. It was our anniversary so I wanted to take my lady somewhere special. We ended up getting there and they told us outside seating was not available due to the high winds. Ok. So then I asked for a seat next to a window where we could still have a nice view. They stuck. Us in between two other couples in the middle of the room... I didn’t show it but I was not happy. I booked this place two months ago and had it in my notes that we wanted to sit outside and or have a nice view. To me this was a waste of 120 bucks. I would happily pay 120 for the view.. without the view it’s not worth it.

The restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. The entire staff is incredibly friendly. We were greeted by every person we walked by. I have never experienced this level of customer service in Miami. They definitely set the bar high! Our food was perfectly seasoned and the sea bass practically melts in your mouth. It’s a little pricey but definitely worth it. Dont forget to try the creme brûlée! Next time I come to Miami we will be returning for sure!

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!

Sat us in a corner while everyone else was on the balcony. Woman who seated us said it was too windy. We were the only ones inside except for the intoxicated gentleman with his head on the table throughout their meal. I was facing a wall but had to listen to him.

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.
