Miami’s steakhouse selection is, frankly, chaotic. It’s a spectrum that ranges from $1,000 steaks in a clubstaurant to restaurants that have served us pre-packaged grocery salad kits. And even though the places on this guide are all quite different themselves—Korean, Argentinian, Peruvian, and more—they deliver the kind of moments a proper steakhouse should. Each serves red meat cooked with surgical precision, accompanied by sides like chimichurri, mac and cheese, and an overwhelming amount of potatoes. There are cold martinis and wine lists the size of an encyclopedia. If you’re looking for a big night out or a ribeye worthy of a celebration, you’ve come to the right guide.

Cote is the only Korean steakhouse in Miami, and you can watch four different kinds of American Wagyu, seven USDA prime cuts, and five A5 selections cook right in the center of the table. Although if you order all of that expect to spend somewhere around a trillion dollars. If you are, in fact, trying to go big, get the $225 per person steak omakase. But the butcher’s feast tasting menu is a little more affordable at around $74 per person. It includes four cuts that are flipped and twirled by a team more in sync than a certain boy band of a similar name. Plus, it comes with banchan, scallion salad, and a savory egg souffle. The feast finishes with a little cup of soft serve topped with soy sauce caramel—our new favorite way to end a steak dinner. And if you’re looking for a nice cabernet to compliment all that meat, you’ll find it in Cote’s 80–page wine list.

The first thing you should know about Klaw is that it is expensive—even for Miami (and even for a waterfront restaurant in Miami). But Klaw delivers on quality. This Edgewater spot revolves around two big dishes: steak and Norwegian king crab, both of which are delicious and sourced so meticulously that your server could probably write a 10,000-word biography on where they came from. The $185 Snake River Farms striploin we ate here remains the greatest steak we’ve ever consumed. And we get it if you just heard $185 steak and thought, “Yeah, no.” There are cheaper options (like a 14-ounce chateaubriand for $90) but if you want to check this place out before committing to a full meal, go for Happy Hour at the rooftop bar Monday through Saturday from 5-7pm.  

Edge is consistent, which makes it a very safe pick anytime you need a fancy steak dinner that still feels safe for clients or in-laws. Start with the really good charcuterie plate full of house sausage, various hams, and pickled things. Then, you can’t really go wrong with any of the steaks, especially the wagyu churrasco. It’s perfectly cooked to your liking, has a great sear, and is super flavorful despite being such a lean cut. The Aussie lamb chops also deserve an honorable mention—as does Sunday brunch, which is our favorite expensive brunch buffet in Miami and involves a lot of tomahawk steaks.

Prime 112 is a South Beach classic that’s been doing the sceney steakhouse thing long before it was so ubiquitous. This place is a favorite of NBA and NFL players visiting Miami, so there is a chance you’ll sit near a power forward or ESPN talking head. Muscular celebrities aside, the people watching is great and even getting sent to the bar to wait for your table (inevitable if you’re visiting on the weekend) is enjoyable thanks to the free bar bacon. Even if you couldn’t care less about the fact that Shaq is sitting 15 feet away, you will be excited about the perfectly cooked ribeye in the center of the table, surrounded by good steakhouse staples served in hilariously large portions.

Platea is a Peruvian steakhouse, which means you can share a delicious ceviche bowl or tostones topped with wagyu picanha saltado before cutting into a perfectly cooked ribeye. It ticks all the right steakhouse boxes with attentive service, a big selection of prime cuts, plenty of sides, and a very nice wine list. But it’s not pretentious. It’s perfect for a nice date, a family night out, or dinner with a group of friends. The restaurant has “weekly experiences'' like surf and turf specials and live music on Thursdays. But the best day to go is Tuesday, when a $180 64oz tomahawk steak is marked down to $150—and comes with a salad, one side, and dessert. The steak is perfect for two people, and in case you forgot what kind of steakhouse this is, it’s plated on top of aji amarillo sauce.

You’ll find this massive, shiny steakhouse inside the Turnberry Resort in Aventura. The host stand is made entirely of wine corks, and you’ll have to pass by multiple wine walls on the way to your table. Needless to say, there’s lots of wine here. But even if you don’t want to drink, the food lives up to its high price point. The meal starts with complimentary duck fat fries, but you're here for steak. They’re all prime cuts, plus there’s a Japanese wagyu, an Australian wagyu, and even a Colorado bison filet on the menu. We like the delmonico ribeye. The sear is excellent, and the temperature is spot on. It doesn't come with sides, so get the creamed spinach or truffle mac and cheese. If corporate cards are present and per diems generous, also get the lobster pot pie that’s prepared tableside with large chunks of lobster and spoonfuls of brandied lobster cream.

Almost every time we eat at this Graziano’s, we overhear confused calls with loved ones who accidentally went to Graziano’s Market a few blocks away. Don’t do that. This is the Graziano’s to visit for the proper Argentinian steakhouse experience, and you’ll know you’re at the right one if you see the circular charcoal grill filled with chicken, lamb, and steaks. They’ve got bistecca alla fiorentina, spinalis steaks, and tomahawks—plus ribeyes, sirloins, short ribs, and skirt steaks (our favorite).  The meal always starts with bread and chimichurri, which you should save for your steak. Plus, the by-the-glass selection here is actually by-the-quartino, which means that you’re getting a quarter of a bottle of wine for around $14-$18. For dessert, order pancakes. They’re rolled, filled with dulce de leche, and flambéed tableside with orange liqueur.

Orilla is an Argentinian steakhouse that’s always a solid pick if you’re looking to have cocktails and red meat in South Beach. The restaurant is sleek, dim, and good for a steak date. The steak is what you should focus on here, but getting mollejas and empanadas on the table is a good idea too. There are a handful of steak options on the menu, and the $68 16-ounce ribeye is a pretty good deal considering this is the same neighborhood where you can order a $1,000 steak (don’t, by the way). This isn’t a meal that you’ll talk about for months to come, but believe us when we tell you that a reliably good (and refreshingly calm) steakhouse with protein options well under $100 is a rare treasure in South Beach.
