With its exotic influences, intoxicating sea breezes, and spectacular sunsets, Miami is so inherently romantic that picking its most romantic restaurants might seem like a fool’s errand. After all, nearly every restaurant in the Magic City is romantic on some level. But when the occasion calls for serious date night romance of the candlelight and wine variety, a pecking order certainly exists. So while it’s hard to go wrong in Miami, we’ve rounded up three of the city’s most romantic restaurants, where every detail comes together to make your evening truly unforgettable.
Red Fish Grill on Biscayne Bay
With its scenic bayside location in Matheson Hammock Park, Red Fish Grill will put you and your loved one in a tender mood right away. By the time you sit down at your candlelit table and take your first sips of champagne, the stage has already been set for a night of impeccable romance. Dine on fennel-seared yellowfin tuna, Caribbean bouillabaisse, or carrot ginger risotto while you make eyes at each other across the table.
Area 31 in Downtown Miami
Enjoy million-dollar views of the twinkling skyline from the 16th floor of the EPIC hotel as you dine at Area 31. Like the flavors of the freshly-caught seafood on the menu, the decor of Area 31 straddles the line between bold and delicate, with wood, glass, and stone offset by textile panels.
Casa Tua in South Beach
Casa Tua means “your house” in Italian, which is why dining here is as romantic as it would be in your own home — and as hospitable an experience as you’d expect in Italy. Select the perfect table on a lush garden patio crisscrossed by strings of hanging lanterns overhead and savor unforgettable delights such as tuna tartare, grilled wagyu skirt steak, and house-made tiramisu. Casa Tua is also a hotel and a members-only social club, so if you really love your dining experience, you and your date can make the evening last even longer.
Romance is anything but dead in the city of Miami, so take your loved one out for a night of spectacular views and fine cuisine and watch the sparks fly.
