You never know what kind of folks you'll encounter in Miami. There is an air about them that scream OBNOXIOUS! Yes, you'll find some of those working at the Epic so be forewarned. Room did the job for a business trip but would not likely return.

This is a fun after-work venue. Located on the 16th floor of the Epic hotel, it overlooks the water, and has an amazing outdoor lounge area to enjoy happy hour with friends. The view is great, as you lounge around on couches enjoying drinks. The food was also very unique and delicious. Overall, definitely a 'must visit' restaurant.

Bustling bar & restaurant for the young and those who think they are young - A good crowd but could be a bit noise - It's in a 5 star hotel so its 5 star prices

Food is very good, however, service is very, very slow. Ordered 2 bottles of wine and they didn't even have them....it's not a very large place so there is no excuse for the slow service....

Area 31 is a roof bar and bistro at the Epic Hotel run by Kimpton Hotels. The place is fun, a trendy bar and drinks menu, and we had a great house Cabernet and some nice appetizers. A good place to go prior to going out to a show or a game in Miami. Our server was very good, but... More

I am a Kimpton fan and love that their restaurants and bars are chef-driven - it definitely shows! Spencer took great care with all of his guests - I was sitting at the bar. He also made great drinks and wonderful food recommendations. The spiny lobster was wonderful!
