Great Date Spots Near Dadeland Mall

Nov 2nd, 2016

With 1.5 million square feet of retail space, Miami’s Dadeland Mall is a shopping haven. It’s easy to spend an entire day browsing collections and displays and trying on new clothes. Do this, and a fierce appetite is certain to creep up on you at some point. If you’d like to dine nearby but are not feeling one of the nearly 30 eateries inside the mall, there are several other great dining options nearby. In the event you’re looking for a good date spot, here are a few of the more romantic restaurants in the vicinity of this iconic Florida mall and the nearby AMLI’s Dadeland apartment.

Carmine’s La Trattoria

Standard Italian fare and an idyllic waterfront location make Carmine’s La Trattoria a great date spot. Fresh, quality ingredients give Carmine’s food an excellent reputation. An extensive and carefully curated wine list makes it easy to find grapes that pair well with any dish. If you know something about Italian food and wish to impress your date, order family-style, and share. Carmine’s La Trattoria is a ten-minute drive from AMLI Dadeland.

Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar

This new American kitchen and wine bar, a 15-minute drive from AMLI’s Dadeland apartments, seems almost incapable of doing wrong. Simultaneously cozy and sophisticated, the atmosphere is perfect for a date. Starters like blue fin tuna with truffle ponzu and shaved jalapeno and crispy braised kurobuta pork belly wow patrons. All fish served at Chef Adrianne’s is caught wild. Mains are prepared with fresh, local ingredients and impeccably presented. And the wine list has something for everyone and every dish.

Devon Seafood Grill

Alright, we’re seeing a trend here. But seafood, steak, and wine make for great date food, right? At Devon Seafood Grill you can enjoy fresh, wild-caught fish and shellfish, mesquite-grilled flat iron steak, seasonal sides, and a bottle of wine or handcrafted cocktail sure to please your palate. Devon Seafood also runs great happy hour drink and appetizer specials. This classy establishment is a 10-minute drive from AMLI Dadeland.


Another place to indulge in housemade pasta, Secreto brands itself as an authentic Italian kitchen with Latin-inspired flair. Whet your appetite with beef or salmon carpaccio before moving onto the restaurant’s signature Risotto Secreto, scaloppini picatta, or chicken marsala. Less than ten minutes from AMLI’s apartments near Dadeland Mall, Secreto has a reasonably priced, world-class wine list.

Shibui Japanese Restaurant

What would a modern date restaurant list be without a touch of Japan? Shibui is located a ten-minute drive from AMLI Dadeland in Miami’s Sunset neighborhood. And the restaurant has a reputation for serving some of the freshest, most authentic sushi near Dadeland Mall. The shrimp shumai, salmon teriyaki, and other Japanese-inspired dishes here that don’t revolve around raw fish also get good reviews.
