Jennifer Lopez stepped out on Saturday night for dinner at Catch in Miami.
Although boyfriend Casper Smart didn't join the singer, she dined with a group of close friends – including her manager Benny Medina.
"She was in a great mood enjoying a night out on the town, " an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Lopez was discussing "how she just finished her world tour while shooting a movie at the same time," the source adds.
The table shared every dish that was brought out to them. The group especially loved the peanut butter souffle, which they were overheard obsessing about.

Jennifer Lopez has many things: perma-radiance, Pucci dresses, lots and lots of Louboutins and a $250 million empire. But she's also a 43-year-old single mom trying to learn from her mistakes.
"I'm not a young girl anymore who can throw caution to the wind," says the mega-star, who is settled into a sofa, picking at a small bowl of sweet potato and corn mash after a daylong PEOPLE photo shoot.
By her side is Casper Smart, 25, her live-in boyfriend. But while the choreographer – whom she calls by his given name, Beau – makes Lopez very happy, she's quick to point out that after her split from Marc Anthony, the father of her 4-year-old twins, Max and Emme, she's not rushing things.

"Leslie had just gone through her own divorce," she explains. "It's a bad time in her life."

When Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony split in 2011 after seven years of marriage and two children together, the singer says it felt like "her whole world fell apart."

"I just got out of a big, heavy, devastating thing, and he's helped me heal," she says in this week's issue of PEOPLE. "He's been there for me."

They say if you've got it, flaunt it – and Jennifer Lopez did just that.
The mother of twins exposed her enviable abs while out and about in London on Monday with boyfriend Casper Smart.
Clad in a tight-fitting cropped black top with black pants and a long, gray coat, the physically fit star, 43, strolled alongside her man, who was also dressed in a similar color scheme.
Lopez worked hard with trainer Tracy Anderson on a custom routine that targeted the area from the singer's abs to her hips.

About a year after Jennifer Lopez began dating dancer Casper Smart, she was photographed in Paris this week, sporting quite the bauble on her engagement ring finger.
Lopez, 43, already faced engagement rumors in March and June, at least one time because she also had a ring on that finger. So is she really headed down the aisle now?
One source tells PEOPLE she's "not even close," adding that the bling is nothing more "than a pretty ring."

Ending her world tour with Enrique Iglesias in Miami this weekend, Jennifer Lopez made a splash Thursday in the SLS pool on South Beach with Casper Smart and her adorable twins Emme and Max.

The best antidote to rumors of a romance cooling off? How about a warm summer day in the park with the kids?
Amid speculation that her relationship with Casper Smart is on the rocks, Jennifer Lopez was still all smiles Sunday as she and her beau took her 4-year-old twins Emme and Max out for a stroll.
Last week, a source told PEOPLE that "she's getting frustrated with him" and she's increasingly "short-tempered when she's around him." But that was then.

Her whirlwind romance with Casper Smart began last November as what one source close to the couple told PEOPLE was "a fun fling."
But now, nearly a year later, could Jennifer Lopez be preparing to leave more than just her American Idol gig?
"He's moved into her life – and a little too easily, too," the source tells PEOPLE. "I think her family is watching him closely."
Lopez's possible cold front comes amid tabloid reports about Smart: One claims he visited a New York City exotic massage parlor, while another reports he was at a peep show next door. (Photographs show Smart going up a set of stairs that lead to the spa.) Lawyers for the couple call the stories "false, malicious and defamatory."
