    7 of the Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in Miami

    Smith and Wollensky

    Smith and Wollensky have been serving up great steaks since 1977. Located in South Pointe Park, the restaurant boasts unparalleled views of the channel. It’s the perfect spot to sip on a deep red Merlot and soak in the evening.

    Smith and Wollensky demonstrate that you can have your steak and eat it, too. The steakhouse carefully prepares some of the most incredible steaks in town so you can enjoy them in the luxury of your seaside property. Then top it off with a side of fried lobster, and you’ve got yourself the ultimate surf and turf while gazing out over the Atlantic.

    You may choose from our extensive lunch and dinner menus, or you can go through our S&W at Home menu, which has USDA Prime steaks, homemade sides, and entire grilling packages. We’ll ensure you have all you need to enjoy the S&W brand in the comfort of your home.


    Walk into the garden of Cecconi’s and forget about the rest of the world. The modern-day Italian joint is renowned for its exquisite pasta and wood-fired entrees. But the magic of their piazza, carefully articulated courtyard will keep you there all night. So check it out for yourself during your next visit!

    Cecconi’s Miami Beach is a contemporary-day traditional Italian restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, and supper seven days a week in the Ground Floor Courtyard of Soho Beach House. On Saturdays and Sundays, a weekend brunch feast is offered.

    Cecconi’s has become a highly recognized dining destination serving prepared Venetian-influenced cuisine, with locations in London, West Hollywood, Berlin, Barcelona, Istanbul, and Brooklyn. Cecconi’s provides an exquisite and casual setting to taste famous head chef Sergio Sigala’s food.

    Amara at Paraiso

    If you’re looking for quintessential Miami outdoor dining, look no further than Amara at Paraiso. Please pull up a seat on their sprawling patio, open a bottle of chilled champagne, and enjoy endless views of Biscayne Bay.

    Unless you own a boat or are a manatee, you can’t get much closer to Biscayne Bay than Amara. However, suppose you are not a herbivorous marine animal. In that case, this is a fantastic option since the scenery and food are both excellent.

    The menu is almost entirely comprised of seafood, a modest raw bar, and a delicious grilled snapper. If you genuinely want to appreciate the vista in all of its beauty, come during the day—and make a reservation if you want a guaranteed outside table.

    Mandolin Aegean Bistro

    Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and snuggle into the patio at Mandolin Aegean Bistro. The restaurant serves up delicious twists on Greek and Turkish dishes on an airy, family-centered veranda. Mandolin Aegean Bistro is in the Design District and features a private garden and bakery.

    The tastes of the Aegean are incorporated into Mandolin Aegean Bistro, inspired by the area that connects Greece and Turkey’s beach towns and seasonal food. Our table is a gathering place for family and friends to share love, laugh, and have lively discussions.

    Mandolin prides itself on the consistency and quality of its dishes. Traditional dishes are recreated while keeping in mind the seasonality and freshness of Aegean cuisine.

    Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink

    Also located in the Design District, Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink is the ideal spot for a casual dinner and a glass of wine. So please pull up a chair in their outdoor courtyard and become a part of the family at this Miami staple.

    The vibrancy of our main dining area is evident from the minute you enter the door and are greeted with a grin. Our open kitchen is teeming with activity, with our chefs fueling the wood oven’s flames while entire fish, chicken, veggies, and pizzas fly in and out. Indoors, choose a table or a comfy booth, or relax in the sun-dappled courtyard.

    Our pleasant bar is always a good option, whether for lunch, supper, or a midday break. Sunday Brunch has a weekly-changing menu of savory and sweet small dishes, ranging from breakfast pizza topped with a local farm egg and house-smoked bacon to indulgent sweets like sticky toffee buns and lemon ricotta pancakes—it’s an ideal, memorable way to conclude the weekend.

    Joia Beach

    Joia Beach, located directly off A1A and (literally) on the Bay’s shores, is a dining experience like no other. The restaurant doubles as a beach club and features sandy lounge chairs, uninterrupted views of the city, and five-star food and drinks to boot. This is one place you don’t want to miss.

    The culinary program at Joia Beach is built on locally sourced seasonal foods and combines traditional methods with new ideas. The Joia Beach restaurant and dining experience, led by famed chefs and brothers Gustavo and Maximiliano Vertone, provides world tastes to Miami’s only private beachfront restaurant.

    Joia Beach’s fresh-caught seafood, quality pieces of meat, vast raw bar, and weekly chef’s specials complement live music. An atmosphere found nowhere else in the city for those looking for Miami restaurants with a view.

    Dishes are meant to be shared, drinks are always freshly mixed, and an extensive wine selection awaits.

    Call Me Gaby

    Unwind in the flowers of Call Me Gaby on South Beach. Enjoy artisan charcuterie boards, sauteed fresh mussels, and a carefully crafted cocktail on their breezy, quaint patio. Did someone say date night?

    Gaby, who are you? Gaby is not a woman, yet ladies surround her. She is stunning, powerful, fashionable, and talented. Gaby is also fearless in the kitchen and produces a fantastic pizza.

    Cathy (Coco was her childhood nickname) grew up in the South of France. She envisioned a peaceful spot for the neighborhood where residents and guests could enjoy superb meals at affordable pricing, a great wine selection – and elegant surroundings. I’m Gaby, and I’d like to welcome you.

    Call Me Gaby is a female-owned and run business that emanates elegance. However, in the kitchen, an all-star crew of male Italian cooks makes pizzas named after women’s names. So is it a fluke that Coco Chanel’s given name was Gaby? Elegance, magic, and a timeless look? We don’t think.
