I can't believe no one has mentioned Miami's most famous and original restaurant (and one of my personal favorites anywhere) Joe's Stone Crab. The place is an institution. In addition to the stone crab and a steak, get the Joe's tomatoes (thank me later).

I thought Oliver's was surprisingly good and affordable for dinner. For lunch, Puerto Sagua Restaurant for Cuban and Charlotte Bakery for empanadas (ask for the sauce). Big Pink was highly recommended to us for breakfast/brunch, but we never got a chance to try it ourselves. In Miami proper, eating at Versailles was a fun group experience.

Hi Valerie!

I only go to Miami once every 1-2 years but I've always loved Prime 112 Restaurant. Great food and great wine.

I really enjoyed a restaurant called Khong River House just off Lincoln Road in South Beach...the place was buzzing when we went there but I really enjoyed that about it, it wasn't too much - perfect for dinner with a friend.

I agree with all of Carolina's recommendations and I'd like to add the Eating House Miami and Gourmet Table.  Both in Coral Gables, small restaurants but really yummy.

If you like authentic Cuban food, go to Larios on the Beach, which is the restaurant owned by Gloria Estefan.  Clean restaurant, nice ambient lighting and music and the food was delicious when I ate there a few years ago.

Monty's on South Beach along the Marina on Alton is a great place. Excellent location. Big Pink is also a great locals place. Both of these are South of Fifth (SoFi) in South Beach. Also for stellar steak and a price to go with it, Prime 112 Restaurant. If you want a great view of the cruise ship leaving port go to the outside bar or seating atSmith & Wollensky - Miami Beach It's amazing. Ships are so close you can see the passengers faces. News Cafe (on Ocean Dr) is great for people watching. Joe's Stone Crab, again, SoFi area, is a staple that takes up almost a block. It's a definite must. Yelp these places for menus, photos and reviews.
