Does Florida Have Michelin Star?

Michelin stars are one of the most sought-after accolades for a restaurant, and many chefs strive for them in hopes of being recognized as one of the finest restaurants in the world. The Michelin Guide is an annual publication that assigns up to three stars to restaurants based on their quality, food, and atmosphere.

While the guide has been around since 1900, it was not until 2005 that Michelin began to award stars to restaurants in the United States. So, does Florida have any Michelin star restaurants?

The answer is yes. Although there are a handful of Michelin star restaurants scattered throughout the United States, Florida has its fair share of them. In fact, there are nine total Michelin star restaurants located within the state: four in Miami, three in Orlando, one in St. Petersburg and one in Naples.

In Miami, three restaurants have been awarded two stars: Azul at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel; The Bazaar by José Andrés at SLS South Beach; and The Restaurant at The Setai South Beach.

The fourth Miami restaurant with a Michelin star is La Petite Maison, which was awarded one star.

In Orlando, Victoria & Albert’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa was given two stars; Primo at JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes and Luma on Park Avenue each earned one star.

In St. Petersburg, Haven was given one star.

In Naples, Ocean Prime was recognized with a single star.


So while Florida may not have as many Michelin starred restaurants as some other states, it still boasts an impressive list of dining establishments that have been recognized by some of the most prestigious culinary authorities in the world. If you’re looking for an unforgettable dining experience in Florida, you can be sure that any of these nine Michelin-starred eateries will provide a truly exquisite meal.
