The place is unique we went there because the view was supposed to be incredible only to find out the outside of the restaurant was reserved for a private party. I'd suggest asking if there are seats outside if you really want a great view before you go. The food is outstanding all of the dishes we ordered were fantastic.... More

Hi Rick, Thank you for your sincere feedback; I apologize that the outside was reserved it doesn't happen often but since it is the holiday season it is very popular. Let us know when you come back and we will do our best to seat you outside. Michael Food & Beverage Director More

this restaurant in the Epic Hotel in Miami is on the 31 st floor so it has a great view of downtown, the bay and up the Miami river. The food and service was great and the low lighting created a nice ambience and atmosphere. Definitely a unique dinning experience and worth it.

found this restaurant close to our hotel in Miami, and it looked good. We decided to sit outside, with the weather, was a perfect decision. The downtown Miami lights, felt like we were in Vegas! Wine selection was decent, Cakebread Chardonnay was reasonably priced. Food was outstanding. Grilled Octopus for my appetizer was delicious. Service was great, overall great experience.... More

I'm first going to start with this AMAZING hotel. The Kimpton EPIC Hotel. Very contemporary. Modern, upbeat decor, with young, energetic staff that were very friendly and helpful in every way. From the gracious valet parkers, to the hostess who sat us, and all the bar staff that went out of their way to accommodate our every need. The restaurant... More

What a fantastic location and eating on the balcony is brilliant at night. The bar is uber cool and the views are amazing. The menu is good but a little pricey. Have to say our meal was not the best but the staff were amazing and very apologetic and responded very positively to our concerns. Would no question go again

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.
