I was looking at homes to purchase over thanksgiving week. I went here thanksgiving night I did t know it but it was fixed price $139 per person. The meal was average at best. The service was great and so was the view. I wish I could have had a better menu to choose from.

Best French toast and strongest mimosas we’ve ever had. But be prepared to pay. A tab we thought would only be $60 was actually 2x that. I’d definitely still go back, though! Loved the ambiance!

I took my Fiancé out to Area 31 for a celebratory dinner of our fresh engagement. I had proposed earlier that same day (CLOUD 9!!) and had dinner reserved for this location and it was the 2nd best decision I made that day! Valet car drop off and pick-up was smooth and quick considering we were amidst a Tropical Storm! Food was delicious. Ordered the 10Oz Petite Steak. Chimichurri was on point! The view was spectacular and so was the service. Marcus, our waiter, was Top Notch 5-Star service. He made that night even more special with surprise champagne and cheesecake! I would love to return for another dinner even if it just casual. Worth every penny!

Had dinner for Halloween at Area 31 and I had a blast! The lady at the front was very attentive and super nice. I loved the Halloween menu, very creative and tasteful. The servers here are just wonderful. Big thanks to chef Carlos for such an amazing dinner menu. This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Miami. Love it all, highly recommended.

The food maybe pricey, but it is definitely worth it. Not to mention a very lovely view of downtown Miami from up above. Love the octopus and cocktail shrimp. Get the truffles chips if you can. Wow! Drink are very good too. Enjoy!

Food was good. Excellent Goat cheese salad.

Service was so-so considering there were few diners in the restaurant. It was a birthday and they did not offer anything even though we let them know in the reservation. The waiter did not check in enough. We tipped 30% even though we did not get great service and no response from the waiter after viewing the bill.

The parking is crazy expensive at this hotel $44, luckily I asked about the validation which reduced it to $17 but still expensive. The part that was disappointing is that no one offered to validate my parking I had to hunt down someone to do it.

Noise from the street is very loud. We won't be returning.

The place has great potential to a great night out .
They should improve their customer service because the lady in the reception of Area 31 is pretty rude . Service in general was ok . The view is stunning and the food is really good .

Very nice place for a anniversary or a birthday.
The only thing that I found bad was that they didn’t have the appetizer that I wanted which was “Spanish Croquetas” or the dessert that I wanted which was “ lava cake” . But other than that the food and the service was great.

Awesome views. Good drinks, service was nice. The Epic Burger of wagyu meat, this was one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Very tasty. My husband had the morroccan chicken, he said it was okay. They were out of the Spanish croquettes. I would recommend this place. Got our valet receipt validated and received a discount. Took about 30 minutes to retrieve the car..very crowded.

Went out for dinner last night at Area 31 and this place definitely never ceases to amaze me. Our server Marcus was great, very attentive. This location has a great staff, specially Carolina the bartender, which by the way her mojitos are the bomb! Tried many dishes from the menu, everything was delicious but without a doubt my favorite will always be the salmon and the Korean steak tacos. I would like to thank Chef Carlos and Nicole for such an amazing work, I had a very pleasant experience in restaurant and will definitely come back.

The view was amazing, very disappointed in the service. Kinda ruined the whole experience on how poor the service was then to just require gratuity for only 2 people . Ended getting the Australian waygu ny strip and it was over cooked on top of everything. Didn’t have a chance to even tell the waiter because of how bad the service was. Unfortunately won’t be back again and won’t be recommending to any of my friends.

View is great, service was subpar. Waiter took our order down incorrectly then blamed us that we didn’t tell it to him correctly. My salmon was over cooked, and the flat iron steak was burned and with no taste. Been here before and was disappointed this time around.

The appetizers are better than the entres. The entrees are similar type of food that I would expect at an Outback or a Chili’s.

The drinks and ambiance were top notch.

The waiter, I think his name was David or Joseph or even Jorge. Not sure because his service was bad!!! All I remember is that he was wearing a shield. Anyway, almost the worst service ever. I had to ask for water, he brought my cocktail and it wasn’t made correctly. He didn’t come back for a good 15 minutes at least. The ice had melted and I had to ask for a drink replacement. He brought the replacement and it still wasn’t right. Meanwhile, I finished my dinner and kindly laid my fork and knife crossed on the plate. He came to the table and never took the plate!!!! I then put my napkin on top of the plate. He came back with the water after another 10 minutes and never took the plate!!! We waited another 8-10 min; I asked for the check, he took another 8-10 minutes to come back with the check. STILL DIDNT TAKE THE PLATE!!!! Came back and took the money for the check - still overlooking the plate. Finally, another waiter came back with my change and FINALLY TOOK THE PLATE!!! What a horrible experience!!! I will never return and needless to say, I didn’t leave a tip. The experience was so bad, I didn’t even order all the food that I intended to purchase for our celebratory event. Horrible experience!!!!

The worst service ever had any restaurant ever been to. The way it was upset that the reservation was late it’s not my fault that they booked us at 9:45 and didn’t sit us down till 1015. He wanted us to order all our food at once and not have a chance to look at the menu. Then when I told him about that situation he seemed upset and went to go ask the manager. After him speaking to his manager he stated that I can’t do nothing about it the manager is my manager so I have to stay. When I ordered wine he brought out the wrong wine which was more expensive than the one I chose, didn’t give me a chance to taste the wine. And slam the wine glasses on the table in front of my wife. The food came out cold overall horrible experience

I moved to downtown Miami 3 years ago and Area 31 has been near the top of my list of restaurants to check out. I don’t know what took me so long to try it but It was NOT worth the wait. Frankly the experience was disappointing on every level. People rave about the views but frankly the view from my own balcony is better. The service was *fine* meaning passable but certainly nothing special. The server was cordial but never asked if the food was ok despite us leaving more than half the 2 dishes we ordered and half a $17 glass of sangria. I am not joking when I say the food was positively insipid. We ordered the hummus of the day which had absolutely no flavor, no salt, and didn’t even taste like chick peas. It was blended until liquified and thus had no texture either. It was truly one of the most tasteless things I’ve ever experienced. We also ordered the tuna tacos (both dishes were recommended by the server). The tuna in the tacos had also been put through a blender and also had no seasoning whatsoever. It honestly felt like the meal had been prepared for geriatrics with severe heart conditions and no teeth. I will literally never, ever go back to this place. If I could give it zero stars I would. It was one of the worst meal experiences of my life. On the plus side they had a nice Cava brut which I enjoyed despite the exorbitant price.
