    Everything about this restaurant is wonderful; food, view, music, service, beauty. Only two minor complaints; the food is served a little fast, and it's very expensive.

    I was very disappointed with the presentation, I ordered a seared tuna with Harlow tomatoes and avocado, as soon as the plate arrived I was nauseous just to look at it. The avocado was mushed instead a nice slice over the tomatoes and talking about tomatoes that wasn't Harlow at all, I know tomatoes really well and that was a regular not organic juice Harlow. The tuna was nice seared but not flavor. My friend also ordered the grill tuna with a side of mushrooms that was also very poor presented and flavorless. The only thing good was the jasmine rice and the service. Anyway i hope the step up on the dish presentation. We eat with the eye first.

    While the view was lovely all other aspects of this restaurant were totally overrated. Also the ambiance lost a star for putting three ashtrays on top of our table. People were standing right on top of us.

    Saturday evening dinner, good crowd, beautiful view both outside and inside. We were expecting great things and we were not disappointed. The drink specials, wine list, appetizers, entrees and dessert were all memorable. Even the music level during dinner was just right. Service was better than the food, Kate was knowledgeable, helpful and fun, but everyone pitched in to make sure we were well taken care of. Rainstorm in the middle of dinner and more than half of the tables needed to be moved indoors, a little hectic but staff seemed prepared and everyone dining was taken care of and seemed satisfied. Great Lincoln Road location, will go back and recommend to all.

    This was the first time trying this restaurant, we went for lunch, we tried the Miami Spice menu, very very poor quality and little food, nothing to compare with what the other restaurants offer during these two months of Miami Spice, definately not worth the money. I would only reccomend to go there for a drink before you go and eat somewhere else.

    plates are extremely small and only way you can get full is if you order additional sides. I would keep decorating vegetables on all plates but add sides so they look like decent meals. Food taste good and view was amazing. I would recommend it maybe to go with your girlfriends to have fancy appetizers and cocktails. Hostess was not a happy camper that day and waitresses are like robots, they repeat everything without engaging with clients.

  • Tiny tiny miami spice portion

    Dined on 8/31/2014
    Ridiculous small portion of food for the miami spice menu A small bowl of green salad with 2 pieces each of tomato and avocado ( no dressing!) A bowl of white rice, 3 small slices of tuna and for dessert 3 teaspoons of caramel custard!!! All of this would not even qualifie for an appetizer size. I thought that the idea of the miami spice is to give client a test of your restaurant and have them come back. It does exactly the contrary, if you don t want to play the game or do not need our clientele do not participate I will never go back

    Super Hot restaurant. Excellent food quality and a beautiful view of urban Miami Beach. We asked for a table inside for the air conditioning and it was really nice, but we were four girlfriends and it was a little difficult for us to listen to each other. Next time we would ask for an outside table at the edge of the terrace. Just be sure its going to be a nice weather. Not to hot or raining....... The food was great!!

    This was our second time dining at Juvia. On this last trip we were seated outside, which was great for views of Miami, however, the restaurant allows everybody to smoke amongst the tables in the outdoor dining space. It was absolutely disgusting. Although the food might have been good, I was constantly surrounded by a cloud of smoke. When asked to be re-seated, our request was not accommodated. In fact, management informed us that even when making a reservation we could not request to be seated in a non-smoking area. Disappointing. Will not be returning.

    The reception was not so friendly and we had to wait over an hour at the bar (we'd made reservations two months before), what probably contributed to the high final check. Drinks were ok but nothing special, and so was the food. I have to agree that the place is trendy and the view was nice, but overall I woudn't recommend it to a friend and certainly will not go back. Spectacular views and a much more attentive and funny staff with better food and more reasonable prices at Area 31, to which we went the next night.

    The waitress didn't have ability to talk slowly , so me And my husband, who are brazilians, had dificulties to understand what she said. Restaurants located in turistic cities like Miami must be prepare to receive foreigners. The waitress should not speak portuguese or another languages but must talk patiently. It was very uncomfortable to us!

The service was so slow and be careful because we ask for a glasses of wine and they charge another much more expensive, and the waiter doesn't what to accept he's gilt but at the end a manager took care of it. The place is really nice but other things were really bad

    Juvia is a beautiful restaurant with a modern South Beach feel that is magnificent. The food was delicious, however it was extremely small portions. Also, they ask if you will have still or sparkling water, but they fail to inform you that they will charge for it. When we received the bill we paid over $40 for water!!! I was not pleased. However, I will return, even if just for drinks and appetizers - just not water!! 😊
