    I arrived ten minutes before my 6 pm reservation and was told that they would not seat me at my table until exactly 6 pm. I’ve never had this happen, anywhere. If they don’t start serving until 6 pm, that’s fair enough, but to not even seat me? I could have at least had some water. The music was so loud in the restaurant I asked them to turn it down, they did. About 15 minutes later they pumped up the volume louder then what it previously was. I asked again about them turning down the volume, nothing. I asked a third time, they turned it down. The food was okay, nothing exceptional. The chicken tagine was too salty, but the grilled octopus was nice. My server was inattentive, I saw him three times throughout the meal, that’s it. The restaurant automatically charges every party, no matter the size, 18% gratuity. This, in my opinion isn’t fair. It takes the discretion from the guest. No matter how poor the service, the guest has no ability to adjust the tip. I wouldn’t dine here again.

    New Year’s Day “Brunch” …. sort of expected a buffet, but everything was ala carte ……… having said that, we went for the raw bar special — wow!! The Bloody’s were good …. but could up them in a slightly larger glass, add celery, maybe pickled green beans, carrots, or asparagus …. should be memorable. Great server, and the 16th floor view — tres cool!

    New years brunch! Everything was delicious from the yogurt parfait with fresh fruit, fluffy blueberry pancakes, to lobster eggs Benedict!! Absolutely Devine!! William was our server and took the best care of us. Excellent service. We were asked if we wanted inside or outside seating. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for brunch.

    Our New Year celebration at Area 31 was a huge disappointment. With an amazing roof top location, this had the potential for an amazing New Year celebration evening, but sadly, we experienced something quite different. It started by waiting for our table for more than 30min to our table booked at 9pm, at this time the guests in first seating still waited for their dessert. It was followed by more waiting for wine list (asked for it several times) and waiting for our first course (white gazpacho) finally being served 1015pm. The second course (king crab with caviar) came shortly after and it tasted very well. Then it was a lot more waiting, after having asked the waiter for some progress the third dish (wagyu dumpling) finally came to our table 2330, the dish was without flavour and texture. Still waiting for the main dish the clock turned midnight and the New Year celebration could start….. The main dish (filet mignon) was brought to our table 20 minutes later and well into the new year - and of course, everything on the plate was cold. Shortly after the dessert was brought in, now everyone seems to be in a hurry to get the remaining guests out of the restaurant, This clearly communicated by cleaning the tables around us and turning on the lights. No question about any dessert wine or coffee, now it seems like the priority was eat up – pay and get out. I feel sorry for the waiters it seems like the time management (first seating) and the control of the kitchen was completely out of control. Adding that we several times had some type of smelly liquid “raining over us” thrown out from hotel guests on balconies on higher floors didn`t make the overall experience better. All of this to the very high price of 1800USD should explain the “one star” rating for value for money.

    Our server was fantastic. That being said, for the price I felt the food was ok. My chicken tagine was not hot when it came to our table and the presentation was less than appealing. My wife had the salmon and it was as it should have been.

    As much as I love this place and it’s amazing staff,… I truly wish they could have more options in their menu. The menu they had several months ago was superb and spectacular compared to the limited option they have now. The menu could use a lot of work. But overall an amazing experience. I would only recommend to my friends if all they were going there for was just appetizers and drinks. Not to suck around and eat.

    Not Rooftop, it’s not located in the top of the building, located in the 16th floor, the building has 54 floors. not a formal restaurant; more like a lounge restaurant, didn’t enjoy the experience… the only decent and nicely dressed is a Cuban waiter named “Danilo” he tries and does good but can’t handle complains properly. The manager is very accommodating, the waiter screwed up our appetizers, and didn’t apologize, instead said “it happens” I argued back and he just dismissed me… The Drinks called Martinis are served in a glass that looks like a mini margarita glass and on top of that they put sugar… not very impressed looking martini. Overall, the place is just surrounded by big tall buildings and you’re not on top of the skyscraper building, you’re below all the other skyscrapers buildings. Food prices, it’s supposed to be a seafood restaurant, they only offered salmon, and some weird boneless whole fish with head and tail, which the meat feels like tilapia; waiter said like sea-bass texture, but nah. I’m Not into pictures, but everyone else was crazy taking pictures with all the buildings around us.

    We went for brunch - food was very good and very reasonably priced considering the locale and the beautiful surroundings. Highly recommend the restaurant for brunch. And valet is validated - we didn’t need to pay for it. Only drawback is the valet wait. Took 15-20 mins to get our car. Very good experience overall.

    Good view but the price is to high compare to the quality of the plate. The proportions are too small expect for the main plates. 30$ for a small octopus and 20$ for small 6 oysters is a scam. The only good point is the view but again paying 200$ for two people doesn’t worth it.

    Ok, let me put this into perspective. I was dining alone, and it was very close to my hotel. If I were with friends this review might be very different. 1. It took close to an hour for my entree to arrive. I ordered the short ribs. $55.00 for 2 short ribs. They were different from any other I have had. They were served meatloaf style.... covered in a tomato sauce. Not super juicy, too day the least. On the plate was tsatsiki (sp?) and pureed set potatoes. The tsatsiki was an odd choice, and the puree was barely a garnish. 2. I also ordered their mushrooms. The first time they arrived completely undercooked, and bland. The second time they were..ok. It was lovely sitting out on the rooftop deck, enjoying a miami evening. However, will I return...probably not
