    The view is great but the food is way overpriced and not special at all. I would recommend it for a drink after having dinner at Doraku sushi, across the walkway from Juvia. Way nicer food and a lot more special.

    The restaurant offers a good range of food options and is located high enough to offer great views of the city line. The price of menu items is overall in the expensive side, and the restaurant allows smoking in the outdoor area.

    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.

    We went to try the Miami Spice menu and what a deception it's like playing with food, very small plates and looks like they served from the other guest don't finish, over cook and bad! 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!! 😊

    Dined on 8/12/2014
    A tomato - avocado salad is not a plate to put in a Menu to showcase what to eat and how good is the food at Juvia. Overall the miami spice menu is cheap, and has a lack of creativity. If you don't want to make a menu of $25 dollars to expose your food and give the oportunity to people to try how good is your food so DON'T DO IT, don't be part of Miami Spice. Places like Cipriani's or Zuma are actually sharing an amaizing experience for $25 in Miami Spice. You don't. So please. Don't show your cheapness in your food because we know you actually have really good plates And creativity to show even though Juvia is famous to be an OVERPRICE restaurant. Thanks god you don't charge for the view of the sunset.

    I went for the Miami Spice lunch. Our seats had a spectacular view of the ocean. There were moments where my friend and I would stop conversing and just drink up the view. I ordered the Vegetarian Box and my friend ordered the Chicken Box. We also ordered the Salmon Nashi to start. I've never had a more delectable piece of raw fish in my life! The boxes came with salad, jasmine rice, the meal and a dessert. My meal was simple mushrooms, but with such a delicious flavor, even the most ardent meat-eater could go vegan after a few bites. My friend got the chicken vadouvan, also delicious. The dessert was a parfait of blueberries and vanilla bean custard, and it may have been the best thing I ate that day!

    First time here, we were a party of six. Conveniently seated by the kitchen the temperature was very nice, there was a view from every table in and outside and the food was outrageously GOOD! Service was very good as well, but be prepared to pay - it's a bit pricey. All in all, will definitely be returning - JUVIA doesn't disappoint.

    From the moment we arrived, everything went perfectly. We were seated promptly and were quickly and courteously attended to by the wait staff. The specialty cocktails were delightful as were all our appetizers (highly recommend the ceviche), and entrees. Our waiter was attentive and witty, and ready with recommendations and answers to all our questions. Enjoyed a perfect meal and a wonderful evening with a gorgeous view of the Miami Beach skyline. Juvia was a beautiful experience.

    The food was really great and the service once we were seated was also in time and accurate. But we were waiting for one hour to be seated having a previous reservation, seeing some empty tables and looking the people arriving later than us and seating directly, while we had to wait for one hour. We had to ask twice and the waitress finally seated us in the first table she found available. We thought they forgot our reservation. Despite this, the food was really awesome, specially the lamb chops and the risotto.

    I was very badly served by the site manager that prevented us sit by the window, under the excuse that such tables would be for five people and not four like us. After a few hours, the restaurant was filling and all the window tables, four people were placed. I called the manager again to know why the differential treatment, and this was curt, rude and did not know how to explain nervous. Unfortunate what happened, would not recommend! Such events will be recorded in my food blog.
