Private fine dining in Miami

I'm looking for a recommendation for a place to host a dinner party for 11 people in Miami. It's to celebrate a special occasion. I'm looking to spend about $75-100 dollars a head total.

The only requirement, other than good food, is that the restaurant must have a private room or area. It will take place in January, so if the room is outdoors, a potential for it to be heated would be nice as well.

Thank you so much in advance for your recommendations.

  1. Heated? In Miami? You've got to be kidding! Even here in Sarasota area it's seldom too cool to eat outdoors!

      That's why I said potential. You must know dining at night and outdoors in January, especially if it's anywhere near the water, caries a strong chill potential. You must be a snow bird. Thanks for the snark.

    2. I just ate the other night at Sra Martinez (it was fabulous), and they have a very cool table upstairs overlooking the main dining room that seats up to 12 (at least). This would be my choice easily.
      Four adult men ate (no alcohol) for $115... great value!

      1. Talula has a nice outdoor patio area but you probably wouldn't be able to take over the whole space with a group of 11 (but I would check - particularly if it's a weekday night rather than weekend, they might accomodate you). I've brought groups to Talula and they've done a great job.

        Sra. Martinez's upstairs area is a very nice space but is not entirely private - 2 tables (8-tops, I believe) and a small bar behind them.

        Bourbon Steak in Aventura has a couple of nice big tables in private spaces - night be tight on your budget (not sure if you're including drinks in that budget or not).

        Most steakhouses (i.e. Capital Grille) have private rooms.
