10 best restaurants in Miami, according to Yelp!


There are plenty of great spots to eat in Miami, but according to Yelp! users, these 10 restaurants are the place to go right now.

Miami is a place of sunshine, beaches, and bad drivers. It’s also a city full of places to get a great meal, either at a mom-and-pop Cuban restaurant, or a fancy, hard-to-get-in spot in Miami Beach.

Many have attempted, time and time again, to try to create a best-of list of best restaurants to eat in this sprawling, sun-baked paradise. The problem is that Miami foodies are as fickle as the summer weather here, and what may be a “hot” spot to dine could change the very next week; heck, the very next day.

10. The Wharf Miami — Little Havana

With a four-star rating, many Miami foodies have come to love this restaurant/cocktail bar/music venue. If you haven’t been yet, you definitely need to go and enjoy one of the best Little Havana has to offer.

9. Mandolin Aegean Bistro — Design District

Averaging 4 1/2 stars with 1445 reviews (and counting), this Mediterranean restaurant has become the place to be-and-be-seen in the uber-trendy Design District. Oh, and it’s also one of Miami’s best spots to get your Mediterranean fix.

8. Kush — Wynwood

There are a ton of great spots to eat in up-and-coming Wynwood, but according to Yelp! foodies, Kush (4 1/2 stars with 2205 reviews) is a Gastropub that simply cannot be missed if you love burgers.

7. Red Carpet Italian –Coral Gate

One of the few spots on this list with a perfect five-star on 329 reviews, Red Carpet Italian is one of Miami’s best-hidden gems. Let me tell you, their pasta is simply on-point, and I do not say that lightly.

6. WHISK Gourmet Food & Catering — South Miami

Some may consider South Miami a suburban wasteland, and while they’re not wrong (to a degree), there are some great places to eat in this traffic-packed landscape. To the shock of some, one of Miami’s best restaurants sits here with WHISK, which has become this area’s go-to spot for brunch.

Who doesn’t love a good speakeasy? Miami foodies turn to Prohibition in Midtown for good seafood, good steaks, and good drinks in an ultra-secretive and cool vibe.

3. CVI.CHE 105 — Downtown

Downtown is finally getting into the restaurant game, and leading the way is CVI.CHE 105, which most Yelp! users have called an “epic” place to enjoy awesome Peruvian and Latin American cuisine.

2. Old’s Havana Cuban Bar & Cocina — Little Havana

As a veteran of Miami’s food scene, I can certainly vouch for Yelp! users naming Old’s Havana Cuban Bar & Cocina one of, if not the best Cuban restaurant and bar in Miami. The food is forever delicious and the atmosphere is lively, the perfect combination for a restaurant in this one-of-a-kind neighborhood.

1. Crazy About You — Brickell

No, this is not a new NBC sitcom, but a restaurant in Brickell that Miami foodies have anointed the best in the city. With a nice mix of Mediterranean, Italian, and Spanish cuisine, this hip spot has earned the right to be the best place to eat in Miami, according to Yelp!.
