Father’s Day is just around the corner, but if you haven’t made plans yet, don’t panic. We’ve rounded up seven of our top spots to celebrate the dad(s) in your life. It doesn’t matter if your favorite father figure prefers to keep things casual with comfort food that hits the spot, or is all about dialing up dinner in an upscale setting — you’ll find a balanced mix of family-friendly, fuss-free, and fancy feasting in this list of South Florida restaurants. Some of them are evening offering Father’s Day specials ahead of the official holiday, so you can treat dad all weekend long.
Helmed by Chef Michael Beltran, this beloved Coconut Grove restaurant will offer all your favorite dishes from its a la carte menu, plus an exclusive offering to celebrate Father’s Day. Three guests can enjoy the Parrillada Ariete, which comes with grilled chicken breast, morcilla, and a grilled NY Strip steak paired with creamed yucca, salad, anchovy butter, and a house-made steak sauce — all for $125. Treat dad to a tasty cocktail from the drink list, like the rum-forward Dimelo Viejo or the whiskey-spiked Papa’s Old Fashioned.
Ariete is located at 3540 Main Highway, Coconut Grove. For reservations, call 305-640-5862.
Sometimes, there’s no better way to celebrate a special occasion than with a classic steakhouse dinner — and Bourbon Steak at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa is just the spot if you’re craving an elevated Father’s Day meal. Celebrate early on Friday, June 19, or Saturday, June 20, and take advantage of a complimentary bourbon cocktail with the purchase of an entree from 6-10 p.m., plus additional drink specials and specialty Bourbon Steak cigars when you buy a bottle of wine (available at 20% off). If you order a ribeye steak, you’ll also get a complimentary side dish of your choice.
If the father figure in your life loves great, authentic Italian cuisine, you should definitely consider sitting down to a meal at Zucca in Coral Gables.

The cocktails also live up to the hype, so make sure to treat dad to a drink that spotlights his spirit of choice.

The best gift for fathers with a deep love of meat? Anything from The Butcher Shop’s butcher retail case, which showcases exquisite cuts of USDA prime black Angus beef, hormone-free chicken, homemade (and home-smoked) sausages, dry-aged meats and more.
