If you are not a big meat eater, try the Mahi Mahi tacos and vegetarian burger. Yum! We ordered this for room service and ate on our balcony and it was totally enjoyable, I would buy it again.

Really cool restaurant, fabulous cocktails (and wine list) and really good food. If you are there for business ask for a separate room as the music could be loud at times

My partner and I were here for drinks. We sat outside, in the bar area. The view is the best there is. The prices are fine. It's a great option for a night out!

Enjoyed a lovely evening here with friends looking over the skyline at Biscayne. The food was delicious and a great selection of fish dishes. The service was a bit sporadic and I felt the servers wanted to be somewhere else rather than serving is. Quite...More

The views from this 16th floor restaurant are spectacular. The service and food were excellent although the prices were "up there".

Area 31 is located in the Epic Kimpton Hotel in Brickell. It's a very unique restaurant. Since I was staying at the hotel i came for dinner and the food wasn't anything special and it was over priced. Came back for brunch/ breakfast. Same situation...More

With the Area 31bar beside the outdoor restaurant seating, Thursday - Saturday nights are the most popular and loud. For a quieter dining experience then Monday to Wednesday are better.

Description
Chef Driven. Ocean Inspired. Local flavor. We have a unique perspective here on the 16th floor, allowing us to see everything that makes Miami famous. Then we hand it to Executive Chef Wolfgang Birk to make into something even more remarkable. Area 31's panoramic vistas provide the wow factor, but Chef Birk's elegant yet approchable cuisine draws full attention to the plate, as avid diners anticipate what his worldly influences and fresh inspiration will cook up next. Keeping it fresh is a big part of Area 31, and that includes sourcing ingredients from our favorite local vendors. While it's preferable to come here hungry, we're always happy to share the view with you over cocktails and people-watching from our spectacular outdoor Terrace Lounge. Habitually innovative, often breathtaking and always welcoming, Area 31 is here to make sure you're never more than an elevator ride from a singular Miami experience.
