Great food at Zen Sai
The food at Zen Sai was outstanding. The fried bok choi was crisp and not greasy at all. The Sea Bass with Black Bean Sauce just melted in your mouth. The King Crab roll was very flavorful. Service was attentive. Would definitely recommend.

The seating is out doors on
The seating is out doors on the patio of the historic Essex house hotel. The ambiance is nice tucked back between Washington and Collins. The food was excellent. We tried the squid jerky, tuna tartar, bacon wrapped scallops, prosciutto roll, and finished with bread pudding. Along with some excellent sake to wash it down.

Great food, service and location!
Short menu, great items. Had Black cod (delicious), bacon wrapped scallops (not greasy at all and supergood), rib eye (I was upset because the cannot cook to your term, but it came perfectly cooked).
If you order sake they explain it to you and help you toast!!!

Went there for the last dinner
Went there for the last dinner on a girl's trip to celebrate my friend's coming nuptials, and it was fantastic. The group was composed of true NY and LA foodies, so this means a lot. We ordered pretty much everything on the menu, and the most notable items were the sea bass (so buttery), spicy tuna sushi (so fresh!), roasted chicken (comes on a skewer), and yamitoshi (or something? It was rice with scallops and shrimp. Yum). Drinks were awesome, and all was reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

We had an amazing time! Everything was perfect, our server Carolina was very nice and very attentive. We had came in for my mothers birthday and it did not disappoint. The pork belly sliders and scallion ribeye were our favorites as well as the cilantro curry spring rolls. We noticed after that they close at 10pm on Thursday and had gotten there at 9:45 but everyone was so kind and service was still amazing.
We will be back!

Definitely would come back. We had amazing service, good food (and enough vegetarian options!) and we loved the ambience both indoors and outdoors. Just perfect!

I find a lot of well ranked Japanese are a bit predictable. But this one is a stand out. This is the Hakkasan of Japanese. Each dish has textures and flavors that were all so great. Don't miss the spicy rock shrimp for this crunchy amazing flavor, the pork sliders, and the cod. Omg the Cod. All while sitting outside enjoy the summer of Miami. Least favorite aspects - there were only a few Reds on the list - the one we picked was a different year than what was listed and sadly not as good a vintage versus what was on the menu. Not a place for a wine-focus dinner. And the dessert was interesting but not worth the calories. Nevertheless - an exciting find and must go. Sit outside - the inside tables are way too close together...

Terriffic except for the manager.
We had a voucher. Reservation though meal service was terrific, helpful & charming, not annoying. Atmosphere--indoor SoBe styled bar or outdoor garden like. Started w/ edamame--seemed fresher w/ better seasonings. Starter salad was large, yellow tail jalapeno smaller, spicy rock shrimp in the middle, all impressed, go for rock shrimp. Rib Eye done as skewers w/ sauces--choose it also spicy tuna roll. All was delicious. We enjoyed Apothic White wine. Everything far exceeded expectations except they added $22.68 unspecified and $2.00 taxes. They said it all was taxes not on what we had paid, but what they said the value was, it seemed irrational, if it was all taxes it should show that on the bill. Manager was unpleasant but fixed it

We visited Miami and found this place via Travelzoo. The service was unbelievable...such a well run restaurant where everyone was friendly and attentive. The pork belly sliders and the yellowtail with jalepeno are two stars of the menu, but there was not a bit that was bad! It was so good, we went back the second night for another round!

Most impressive of all was
Most impressive of all was the service, explanation of the food and the enormous dedication to food. Having been in Japan several times, I do recognize some North American influences, but the quality is excellent and although not recommended by the crew, the Black Cod is our favourite and we actually ordered another portion of this great dish. A very nice and relaxing outdoor dining place - I wish we had this near to us in the Netherlands...
