Best Restaurants in Coconut Grove

Best Coconut Grove Restaurants

Coconut Grove has evolved in recent years, but its charm remains. It is still one of our favorite neighborhoods in Miami.  When dining out, there are plenty of restaurants that offer a variety of cuisines and ambiances.

There’s a strange bubble surrounding this historic neighborhood that blocks out the city’s usual chaos, and coming here is like slipping into a warm bath after a long day in Miami. This is also why the Grove is ideal for a carefree, lazy meal, which is exactly what you’ll find here on any given Saturday, from brunch to dinner.

Sure, parking causes us some anxiety, but if we are strategic and arrive on time, we usually find a spot. Thai, a veggie-friendly dim sum experience, Indian comfort, and seafood dishes are all on our list.

Check out our local guide to the best Coconut Grove restaurants.
