10 Hottest Hotel Restaurants in Miami

By Carissa Chesanek
February 19, 2014

Between chef Ralph Pagano's new Naked Taco opening inside Dream South Beach Hotel and Top Chef's Tom Colicchio's planned project inside 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, there are a lot of buzzy hotel restaurants on the way. However, they won't be the first - Miami already has some killer options on that front. Here are 10 to check out right now.  

  • Lure Fishbar

    Part sexy supper club, part old-school cruise liner, this New York-exported fish house recently opened inside South Beach's own Loews Miami Beach Hotel, providing excellent ocean views, private outdoor bars and a huge seafood selection. 

    1601 Collins Ave.; 305-695-4550

  • Zuma

    With stunning Miami River views and a spacious open layout, this Japanese restaurant in Downtown's Epic Hotel is the spot to go for a fancy night out or an elaborate (and pricey) brunch

    270 Biscayne Blvd Wy.; 305-577-0277

  • Setai The Restaurant

    The Setai Miami Beach recently renovated its upscale quarters, bringing with it a revamped menu that showcases the flavors of Italy and the South of France alongside classic Spanish-style items like signature “a la plancha" grilled fare.

    2001 Collins Ave.; 305-520-6400

  • Katsuya South Beach

    You'll find simple black-and-white decor inside this Philippe Stark-designed venue, but it's really the menu from master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi that makes this place inside the SLS Hotel South Beach stand out - that and the huge illuminated geisha lips found on the upstairs Dragon Room Lounge's wall.

    1701 Collins Ave,; 305-455-2995

  • Toro Toro

    Situated inside Downtown's InterContinental Miami, this Pan-Latin modern steakhouse supplies its guests with a vast selection of meats, carved tableside rodizio-style, along with a lively rustic bar scene ideal for the afterwork crowd.

    100 Choplin Plz.; 305-372-4710

  • Palme d’Or

    This stunning French bistro located inside the elegant Biltmore Hotel offers its diners a high-end atmosphere with equally top-of-the-line authentic cuisine, featuring items like smoked foie gras with truffle and monk fish wrapped in bacon.

    1200 Anastasia Ave.; 305-913-3201

  • Edge Steak & Bar

    Inside the super-chic Four Seasons Miami, you'll find this casual but trendy steakhouse with a large outdoor terrace overlooking the city, a sleek marble bar supplying handcrafted cocktails and tasty cut meats served in petite portions.

    1435 Brickell Ave.; 305-381-3190

  • Azul at Mandarin Oriental, Miami

    If you're looking for the ultimate romantic venue, this waterfront restaurant in Brickell Key's Mandarin Oriental will surely do, thanks to its Biscayne Bay views and impressive New American cuisine (think: Wagyu churrasco with roasted fingerlings).

    500 Brickell Key Dr.; 305-913-8358

  • Cioppino

    While the interior of this Italian restaurant inside The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami is nothing to sneeze at, it's the large outdoor terrace overlooking the two pools and beautiful beach that really reels you in. Of course, the rich risotto with lobster tail doesn't hurt either.

    455 Grand Bay Dr.; 305-365-4500

  • Bianca

    This fancy Italian spot sits pretty along the historic Delano Hotel's lobby, offering guests an intimate indoor dining room, spacious outdoor terrace and classic fare like duck confit, with an added bonus of being able to order specialty rolls and Big Eye Tuna pizza from the hotel's Umi Sushi & Sake Bar

    1685 Collins Ave.; 305-674-5752
