Make Them Early!
Do you really make your graduation restaurant reservations now? Graduation is a time to celebrate and a celebration requires a nice meal, a nice meal needs a reserved spot! The University of Miami holds graduation ceremonies two times per year with May being the largest ceremony, broken down by college. Commencement schedules and information can be found here. Fall Graduation is set for, December 14th. Spring Graduation is May 10th – May 12th. Hopefully, you have read our blog, Graduation at UM and made your hotel reservations. But if you are coming down with your entire family, you may want to reserve your favorite restaurant in plenty of time as many of the restaurants do get extremely busy.
To help you out, we are listing the restaurants that take a reservation and if they require a deposit to hold the reservation (some do). Obviously, not a list of all possible hot spots below is a very small list of a few favorites. For other restaurant recommendations, see our blog on restaurants for lunch, dinner, and brunch. Also, check out Yelp and Thrillist for up and coming new restaurants in Miami. We will continue to add to this list regularly as we find more information but our suggestion to make your plans early, especially for Fall and Spring graduation weekends, is strongly advised. Make your plans early and you will have a smooth graduation celebration.
