7 Top Miami Waterfront Restaurants for Stunning City Views

Whether it’s lunch, dinner, or just a few drinks, waterfront dining is a way of life here in Miami. Everyone needs to eat, so you might as well do that eating somewhere near the water while you’re here. There are many options for dining surrounded by ocean, bay, and Miami River views. Here are seven of our favorite waterfront restaurants.

Smith & Wollensky

Head to the southernmost point of Miami Beach for prime steaks at Smith & Wollensky. Take a friend, take a date, or take the kids. This fine dining chophouse serves fresh, quality food only. The outside patio offers outstanding views of the ocean. Enjoy a dry aged steak, seafood tower, and warm, freshly baked rolls. 1 Washington Ave, Miami Beach

Crazy About You

Visit Crazy About You for an elegant evening on Biscayne Bay’s waterfront. The chic bistro has an interior reminiscent of a contemporary art museum, with edgy, political art and whimsical sculptures. Have a seat on their terrace for picturesque bay views and American fusion cuisine at this Brickell destination. 1155 Brickell Bay Dr #101, Miami

Il Gabbiano

For a special fine dining experience, Il Gabbiano’s posh space on Miami’s waterfront serves up refined Italian plates. The bay views are unbeatable, the service is impeccable, and the freshly made pasta is delectable. 335 S Biscayne Blvd, Miami

Canvas

Experience culinary art at The Sagamore Hotel South Beach in Miami Beach. Chef Michael Smerda welcomes guests to Sagamore’s signature restaurant Canvas for exquisite multicultural dishes to excite the senses and invigorate the mind.

Obra Kitchen Table

Head Chef Carlos García brings together Miami’s brightness with Latin American flavors at Obra Kitchen Table. The intimate neighborhood restaurant on Brickell’s waterfront is the perfect place for a meal with friends or a quick cocktail. Catch the renowned Chef Carlos hard at work in the kitchen whipping up Pappardelle al Ragu, fresh seafood dishes, and meats grilled to perfection. 1331 Brickell Bay Dr, Miami

Cipriani

Located in the northern Financial District, Cipriani offers panoramic views of Biscayne Bay, a chic nautical aesthetic, exceptional service, and tasty Italian dishes. Dine on their bayside terrace to be inspired by their waterfront setting. Although their homemade pastas are where they shine, guests of Cipriani rave about the Bellini. 465 Brickell Ave, Miami

Wolfgang's Steakhouse

The upscale steakhouse has an elegant atmosphere that will make you fall in love with Miami all over again. Although they specialize in savory steaks cooked to perfection and a killer wine menu, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse prepares an excellent Ahi Tuna Tartare and Lobster Macaroni and Cheese. Dine on their porch overlooking Biscayne Bay for incredible views. 315 S Biscayne Blvd, Miami

Verde

After a day exploring Pérez Art Museum Miami, step inside their on-site Verde restaurant for locally-inspired New American fare. The Biscayne Bay vistas, cool bay breeze, and lush hanging gardens set the scene for a peaceful meal amongst world-renowned contemporary art. 1103 Biscayne Blvd, Miami
