Miami’s Romantic Dining Guide

We hear all the time that Miami isn’t a romantic city just because is considered mostly a party destination but in the magic city you can still find the perfect spot to dine at candlelight while overlooking at the Biscayne Bay with Miami’s fantastic skyline or maybe just that intimate and charming atmosphere.  I updated this post from years ago as of May 2017.  Restaurants have changed or closed and I wanted to keep my most recent picks up to date.  Enjoy!
