Diplomat Prime Steak & Seafood
Nestled in the Diplomat Beach Resort lobby, this award-winning steakhouse marries a sophisticated ambiance with top-tier seafood and aged in-house steak dining. The kitchen dishes out starters to the likes of prime rib carpaccio, jumbo lump crab cake, or snapper crudo, followed by main courses of Diver scallops, 45-day dry-aged NY Strip, or a shareable dish of twin lobster tail for two, which can be accompanied by sides of the like of roasted bone marrow, Kabocha squash risotto, or seared foie grass. The wine lists boats with more than 500 varietals in addition to an extensive cocktail menu.
Sometimes the craving hits for perfectly cooked steak — and Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak is the go-to spot in Aventura. Steak may be the meal's star, but it’s certainly not the only highlight, so make sure to accompany it with the duck fat fries trio for the ultimate pairing.

While not a “steakhouse” in the traditional sense, this is still a must-visit spot for red meat lovers. This New York City import steakhouse made a name for itself by serving up 45-day, dry-aged beef, presented in a Korean barbecue format prepared at the table on smokeless grills. The most popular order at Cote is the butcher’s feast boasting a chef’s choice of cuts, different vegetables and kimchi, egg souffle, two stews, rice, and soft serve for $68 per person. But for those who want to go more high-brow, a 10-course steak omakase is available for $225 per person.
Part steakhouse, part-clubstaurant, this is certainly a spot to grab a steak with a side of “vibe.” Go the decadent route and order a steak topped with king crab or truffle butter, and pair it with one of its many mac and cheese options to round out the meal.
LT Steak & Seafood
Famed chef Laurent Tourondel’s casual steakhouse is not only one of the best picks on Ocean Drive it also offers some of the best steak selections around. Choose from a variety of USDA prime or certified black angus steaks before picking from one of its six sauces to go with the beef like green onion-ranch shallot, jalapeño chimichurri, or peppercorn-armagnac.
Prime One Twelve
This glitzy South Beach mainstay, which is known just as much for its celeb spotting as it is for its cuisine, is a favorite for its plates like 48-ounce porterhouse, decadent sides such as creamed spinach and roasted garlic mashed potatoes, and a lively bar. Save room for dessert, as the fried Oreos are worth the calories.
RED South Beach
This South Beach steakhouse has gotten new larger digs but is still best known for serving up steaks with equally impressive sides. Opt for a cut of meat, like the 40-day aged Kansas City bone-in strip with a side of the restaurant’s popular lobster macaroni and cheese or truffle whipped potatoes.
Dirty French Steakhouse
Major Food Group’s opulent and purposely over-the-top steakhouse, Dirty French Steakhouse, might be a New York City import, but this location is distinctly Miami. From the orange velvet-lined walls, animal print seating, Murano glass leaf chandelier, and gold leaf ceiling, the space oozes 80s excess. Guests can expect to dine on prime-aged steaks alongside mushroom millefeuille, lobster ravioli, crab cake croustillant, wedge salad, and caviar vichyssoise.
Graziano's (Multiple locations)
With multiple locations throughout Miami, this homegrown Argentine steakhouse serves all the popular steakhouse fare — like tomahawks and skirt steak — along with dishes more popular in Argentina, like parrillada, empanadas, and a large variety of wines.
The Wagyu Bar
For wagyu purists, the appropriately named Wagyu Bar is a must-try spot. The unassuming, casual steakhouse located just a block from its sister butcher shop Meat N’ Bone serves up some of the most hard-to-find pieces of steak in the city. Start the meal with sushi topped with thinly sliced and perfectly charred slices of Japanese A5 Miyazaki-Gyu, before choosing from dozens of steak options from the traditional like a porterhouse or hanger, to a 45-plus day aged Kansas steak, to more than a dozen varieties of melt-in-your mouth wagyu steaks.

This old-school Coral Gables steakhouse got a refresh recently but still serves up all the classic eats steakhouses are known for: Grilled prime-aged steaks, stiff martinis, and indulgent sides, including a can't-miss Caesar salad. And save room for the Baked Alaska, prepared tableside — it's a spectacle in itself.
