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.

Having had the most amazing breakfasts during my stay in various hotels this was a very basic hotel breakfast. got free vouchers for continental breakfast and upgraded it to the full one with 7 dollars. There's lot to choose from: eggs (poached or scrambled), pancakes, bacon, fruits, pastries... pretty much everything and top of the iceberg you can sit outside and enjoy the view while eating the breakfast.

Area 31 is not just a restaurant with an incredible view, it is a place with attentive service, friendly atmosphere and great music. I and my boyfriend had a fantastic time over there. Of course, the main, especially for me, food was pure happiness (taste and presentation of the meals). We had three appetizers – ceviche, grilled squid and crab cake- all were super good, for the main course we shared pappardelle pasta with lamb ragu, and for desert we had trio of mini mango panna cotta, chocolate mousse, and peach tart . Try their drinks, amazing too. Everything was just perfect! It was our first visit, cannot wait to come back again!

Took our Danish relatives to dinner at Area 31. Fantastic view, food, drink and service. The food was excellent from the appetizers to dessert. Get the scallops, crab cake and beet/goat cheese appetizers! All were delicious and well prepared. The main courses were also well prepared . I had the grilled red snapper. Janne had the swordfish. Delicious!
