    My only critique would be that in today's world of food allergies the options that were or could be gluten free were scarce. The scallop dish which was GF (2 of us ordered it) was delicious but, came with only 2 scallops and little else. It was more of an appetizer than main corse except for the price. Other than that it was wonderful.

    Gorgeous place, splendid view and tasty food. I took a client there and ordered wine from the very pricy wine list. Server constantly filling you glass-a bit annoying when your trying to talk. First bottle gone before dinner and needed a second before our entree arrived. They add 18 percent automatically which was an 85$ tip for a 500$ plus pricy Wednesday night for 3 persons. No dessert or apps by the way.

    The place is very beautifull! The service is perfect and the scenic view is awesome... But the food is not good! The three plates were not seasoned at all. My wife's risotto was terrible, without salt! The wine list is Amazing. Just think is too expensive for the food, but good for drinks.

    I really enjoyed Juvia, however, after eating in New York & Miami Beach, I could not believe the expense of this restaurant. Perhaps if they lost a few staff members they could bring their prices back to where they should be.

    Restaurante com um lindo visual mas oferece uma comida muito mais cara do que realmente vale. A garçonete que nos atendeu era apressada e com uma gentileza forçada e no final nem trouxe a nossa conta. Pelo nível do restaurante, ela deveria nos informar que passaríamos a ser atendidos por outra pessoa. Indico somente uma bebida no bar para apreciar a vista noturna. Não para jantar. A comida não surpreende!

    We've been here 3 times. The first time a male member of our party had open toe sandals and was advised that this was not proper attire. The 2nd time not thinking we walked in without reservations only to be reminded about the open toe sandals policy - so back down the elevator of shame. This is Miami Beach, and we were all dressed nicely. The sandals were expensive leather sandals. Whatever. Miami Spice Lunch was a bento box. It consisted of 8 bitesized pieces of rib meat (nicely seasoned), a small bowl of white rice, a small salad and a mini desert for $23. The view was nice. Miami Spice is an opportunity for local restaurants to make a great first impression. This was my third impression of Juvia. I wanted to like it. No 4th tries.

    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.

    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.

    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!!
