The food was good, not the best you will ever have. The portions were tiny and it was VERY expensive. I don't mind spending the money if there is value. One of the dishes was so minuscule that my guest sent it back. It was an appetizer for $ 21. Really embarrassing.

I have been to area 31 a couple more times and my experience has always be good but I can't say the same of this past Saturday. The food was awful and the waitress was rude. I am sorry because was one of my favorite place I have been too so far since I moved here but I won't come back so soon after my bad experience. Please change the chef. Thank you

Great view. Great location. Small portions to eat! Small menu card! I booked a table for my wedding anniversary and asked for a small decoration on my table - did not get anything when we came there, just a short "happy anniversary" at the entrance!
Good to experience
We were visiting Miami and were looking for interesting place to celebrate my spouse's birthday. It is above average price restaurant, but food and service were great. People are pleasant and let us enjoy a warm swimming pool after we had lunch. Something to be aware of: Parking is $17 with the restaurant validation.

Made reservations for a party of 4 at 9pm, Entire party arrived on or before 8:50pm Seated at 10:14pm Waited 29 mins for server to place order Waited 16 mins for appetizers to arrive Waited 39 mins for dinner to arrive (after Appetizers) Food was much more desirable then the wait. Then again we could have been so hungry anything would have been good.
Awesome views!!! Great waiter!

Great place for special occasions
I had a chance to go out on a date with my wife, incredible experience. Highly recommendable.
Good but could be great
Go for the view. The food was great.. We requested to have two entrees split on to two plates. NO. This is a trend around Miami. This and the elitist attitude will eventually slow tourism and spending in this overpriced town. As for Area 31 They did fine. I understand not splitting a single dinner for two I guess. We ordered two entrees and wanted them split . They were busy but not that busy. Skip dessert they are sold as "petite" not very good. Our server was attentive and the prices were 20 percent less then South Beach. Food quality other than dessert was a 10. We will be back because it is without a doubt the best view and most romantic place in Miami..

Great food, service was not fair enough since we got in, host was very rude as my wife's English is not ver good. I though service should be the first and they did not demonstrate it, I leave 2 star on service as the guy with the water and the waitress was pretty kind.
Food, service, view, atmosphere, people, were all awesome. Really can't say anything bad about this place. Was expensive, but well worth it.
This i a place I would take anyone visiting Miami.

The seating outside on the 16th floor is what really sells this place. We sat next to the glass railing overlooking Brickell and sipped mimosas for a few hours eating and people watching. Great place to bring a date, we did Easter brunch and I will certainly bring her back for dinner.

It was good the view was spectacular but the food is not much the big for but overall it was a great experience.
Worst service ever
The food was great but the waitress didn't make us feel wanted. She also made sarcastic comments when we asked a question about the menu. The food good but the service was terrible find it had to ever wanna come back.
Great Bar ambiance and great view.
The food was great and the service too. The price is a bit steep but the location and the view are very special.

Food was delicious. Get the steak wrap or Mahi tacos. Love the ambiance and the view outside of course. The hostess was very nice and accommodating. My one negative thing would be to stop giving us cold fries! Please just make a new batch. Thank you. Still 5 stars though.
