Looking for a romantic dinner in SoBe

What we live in Fort Lauderdale, we are having a little staycation in Miami Beach. Going to Pubbelly Sushi, Bazaar and Yardbird with friends, but am looking for somewhere romantic for just me and the mrs. Previous 'date' nights include Casa Tua, Hakkasan, Scarpetta but looking for a new option please.

      Looks great, think will book it for one of the nights with friends. Looking for something a bit 'sexier' / romantic for the date night ;)

        You might want to look at Milos. It is very expensive though.

          Was thinking about it for lunch (which I did in Vegas and it was great), but probably too hard with the little kids, and makes dinner seem even more expensive!

              been and didn't get the hype.

              wow, feel like I am being super picky!

      Osteria Del Teatro, Bond Street (so dark you could probably get it on without anyone noticing!) Bianca

        Get a table in the garden at The Dutch or head over the causeway to neMesis Urban Bistro.

          Wants to be more sceney than Nemesis. If you are heading across the causeway, I would do Zuma or Tuyo given what the op wants.

          One last shot is Cecconi's.

          Howsabout BLT Steak.
          I had a very enjoyable meal here with Mrs. Porker a month or so ago.

            so we ended up trying to decide between the Dutch and Makato. Ended up at the former, in the garden. Pretty romantic. Service was excellent, but not so much the food, which was good but I guess i was expecting more.

            Yellotail crudo to start was ok, but the watermelon definitely overpowered the fish.

            Lamd pappardelle was fine.

            Banana cream pie was good, but not as good as I was expecting, and I love most banana desserts.

            Maybe it was high expectations going in, but while we had good meal, I wouldn't rush back at those prices.

            Thanks everyone for the suggestions.
