    Glad we’ve decided to try the Miami Spice at Zuma, located inside Kimpton Epic hotel. It’s absolutely delicious! Heard prices been up up this year, still, worth a try if you’re in the area.

    What an Amazing Brunch! We loved everything from the hot food to Sushi! Our waiter and the whole staff were the BEST! This is a must do Brunch in Miami! I have always loved dinner. However, this was the first time we did Brunch and it was just GREAT! Thank you to the whole Zuma Team! From the Manager Paige who was so nice when we arrived to everyone who helped us!

    I was very excited to go to Yuma but was quickly disappointed. I had a reservation for 10:00 arrived 9:55 table was not ready till 10:20 (25 minute wait) Once seated and receiving our drinks to waitress who was completely unattractive said we are doing last call for the kitchen, I said we just sat down. Once we got the food I was again disappointed because the portions were very small. Did I mention the service was horrible? Nothing frustrates me more than eating in Miami and having to give a 20% tip when the service is deplorable. Nice hotel, nice atmosphere but this restaurant is nothing special, Miami hype because it’s a cool place on the water but not worth the $300 bill

    Reservations for 9:45. The entire party arrived a few minutes early. Weren’t seated until 10:35. Also not a fan when the only dish the waiter recommends is the most expensive item on the menu.

    Honestly one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had anywhere. And I go out to eat to a lot of places so it says a lot. First off parking. Parking is valet only but it’s cheaper than any other nearby self parking so I recommend just doing valet. Next is the restaurant itself it’s very welcoming, hostesses are super nice. I got there like half an hour early to my reservation but were able to seat me immediately which I found great. They sat us outside but it was kind of humid so I didn’t want to sweat so I requested inside seating and they accommodated us quickly. Then the food and service was just top notch. All the food came out quick and was very fresh and tasted absolutely amazing. The service was really quick and our server was super nice. Took the time to explain menu items and came by all the time to check up. Prices were expected for a restaurant of this caliber but weren’t ridiculous. Overall I loved my experience and recommend this place to anyone looking for great food and a great place.

    We used to be regular brunchers at Zuma. We had not been in a while and went yesterday. What a disappointment. Food offerings had changed to include more cooked food and fewer sushi options. New dishes added were hummus tacos on a radish leaf, tofu sushi, etc….. you get my drift. Now mimosas are not included in the basic brunch menu but are either charged a la carte or you need to upgrade to the more expensive menu choice. The quality of the food overall declined significantly. The sushi section was previously lavish and extensive, now it is a 3 ft section where plates are placed with 7 pieces of sashimi on each plate and a waiter is constantly cutting you off to remove the empty plates to then replace them with a other 7 pieces of sashimi. There is a ‘line’ to the miniature sushi section. Desserts… not same quality and small portions. We understood then why it was so much easier to make a reservation and why there so many empty tables around us. That was our last time at Zuma.

    We Love Zuma! It’s our favorite in Miami. Our waiter was attentive, anticipating our every request since he has served us before. We dine outside and on this night it was quiet and peaceful. The food is always consistent. Some of our favorites, the soft shell crab starter, the spicy sesame beef, the broiled lobster and watercress avocado salad. To finish off the perfect meal, The chocolate cake or the pecan sunday. The cocktails are perfect , I like gin so the Rika Tonic is a must! Enjoy

    Our request made through Opentae to celebrate a birthday was ignored. And so was the request to have a party of 6 instead of 6, so we have been seated on a narrow table. Outside the temperature was really high (no surprise, it is Miami in August!) but there aren't any ventilators, so the result was a sauna, not a dinner.... Quality of Sushi really normal, not worth the price paid.... Last, the service was really slow, have to wait for one our the first dish. I was there 3 years ago and had another memory.....

    We dined at Zuma on a Thursday night during Miami Spice. The portions were a good size, server was attentive, ambiance really chic and upscale. The drinks were pricey and we weren't expecting a 20% service charge on top of our bill. Overall it was positive experience but a one and done experience.

    Very enjoyable Sunday brunch with a great selection that pleased everyone in my group. We opted for the $130 Champagne Brunch and it included all you could drink from a very nice list of cocktails, wine and champagne. The service was a little spotty, but it was very busy so that's understandable. The food and drinks were all delicious and in the end they bring you a lovely bowl of desserts with fruit for the table. We will definitely do this again!
