Candlelight and Ocean Views: Miami's Ten Most Romantic Restaurants

Categories: Top List

6. The Villa by Barton G.
Everyone has a different version of romance. Some think it's a simple picnic on the beach. Others think it's gilded opulence in the framework of a Mediterranean villa filled with intricate mosaic-tiled rooms, fountains, and a lush courtyard. Which describes the Villa by Barton G. exactly. Versace-designed china, robin's-egg-blue linens, and the colors of gold -- and money -- are everywhere. A $75 chef's tasting menu is the best bet, which includes snapper ceviche, a duck confit crêpe, rack of lamb, and key lime fantasy for dessert. Then you can really rack up the bucks by selecting one of more than 600 wines by the bottle. If your evening is really successful, suites at the villa run anywhere from $900 to $2,500. Now that's romantic.

5. Cecconi's
We suggest beginning a romantic dinner at Cecconi's at Soho Beach House with a little role play. You walk into the restaurant courtyard, strung with what seems like millions of little white lights, and pass dozens of beautiful people as you make your way to the bar. You spot a gorgeous person nursing a drink. You saunter over and strike up a conversation. Sparks fly as you invite your crush to dine with you alfresco, the sounds of the surf in the distance. You laugh over a branzino ($38) or, perhaps, a pizza decorated with speck, fontina, and mushrooms ($20). The night goes so well that you wind up leaving together. (Of course you do -- you both arrived in the same car. You've been together for a dozen years.)

First of all Area 31 is not romantic in anyway possible.  Whoever wrote this obviously got a free table and bottle with this post.  The food is horrific and the ambiance is absolutely commercialized in every shape and form.  If you feel like paying $45.00 for a dinner that looks like an appetizer, this is the place to go.

I have eaten at most of them but my all time favorite is Barton G. I have been there for lunch and dinner and never been disappointed.

 Ed:  I agree the Chart House has beautiful views, but I like to veer from chain restaurants. As for The Rusty Pelican and The Forge -  romance is a subjective thing and it's a top ten list, so we eventually have to choose our ten best.
