Whatever the occasion, here are seven of our favorite hotel restaurants in Magic City that won’t disappoint your palate.

27 Restaurant, Freehand Hotel Miami

Located on the Freehand Hotel Miami property, 27 Restaurant is often overlooked when compared to its award-winning sister cocktail bar, Broken Shaker. But the globally inspired eatery can hold its own and deserves a fair share of the spotlight.

27 boasts an impressive array of shareable and individual plates with playful flavors and textures like griot and pikliz, smoked ribs, kimchi fried rice, and braised octopus; the offerings are diverse and plentiful, making every experience an adventure for your palate. A robust roster of natural wines helps round out the menu—cheers!

27 Restaurant is located at 2727 Indian Creek Drive, Miami Beach, 33140. For more information, visit their official website

EDGE Brasserie and Cocktail Bar, Four Seasons Miami Hotel

EDGE Brasserie and Cocktail Bar is a Four Seasons Hotel Miami institution. The hotel restaurant is a place you can always count on to be consistent, and that consistency is one of the reasons the place has withstood the test of time. 

It’s just a solid restaurant that offers a little bit of everything. Love steak? Prefer seafood? Just want a stiff drink? EDGE has you covered—and then some. Wagyu churrasco, Australian grass-fed lamb, grilled rohan duck, charred cauliflower … everything is done to the highest level.

Jaya, The Setai Miami Beach

Jaya, at the luxurious hotel Setai in Miami Beach, is recognized as one of Miami’s culinary heavy hitters. The venue celebrates Southeast Asian culture through cuisine and hospitality. Led by Executive Chef Vijayudu Veena, dishes present traditional Asian cuisine from Thailand, Korea, India, China, and Japan with a modern twist. 

Expect a robust menu of house favorites like Peking Duck, naan bread, and Indian curries, prepared with various cooking techniques from wok stations to tandoor ovens—sizzling in flavors of turmeric, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, chilies, and tamarind. 

Jaya is located at 2001 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. For more information, visit their official website.

Lido, Four Seasons at The Surf Club

One of many dining options at the city landmark, the Surf Club, Lido Restaurant invites diners to experience an Italian summer with exquisite pastas and proteins that leave guests in awe. What we enjoy the most about the restaurant is that it’s so versatile: You can enjoy a lovely date here or bring the whole family for an unforgettable meal; there’s an all-day kids menu. 

FYI: The hotel also houses one Michelin-starred The Surf Club Restaurant, under Chef Thomas Keller’s leadership. Also located at the Surf Club Hotel, the Champagne Bar reflects the early days of the Surf Club and features imaginative cocktails. 

Lido is located at 9011 Collins Ave, Surfside, FL 33154. For more information, visit their official website.

MaryGold’s, Arlo Wynwood

Nailing down the cuisine at Marygold’s inside Arlo Wynwood is no easy feat: Chef Brad Kilgore (of Alter fame) masterfully melds influences from all over the globe to create culinary masterpieces. If there’s one word to sum everything up, though, it’s delectable. 

Whether you opt for a round of snacks and drinks or enjoy a leisurely multi-course feast, MaryGold’s will leave you wanting more—in a good way. Can’t make up your mind? The jerk oxtail beignets, brioche bread, ricotta pillows, and short rib “vaca frita” are some of the highlights on this mouthwatering menu.
