  • Juvia Rocks the Roof-top
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 4/25/2012
    Why hasn't there been a roof top restaurant on the beach before? It's a natural. Needless to say great views. The young wait staff was consistantly attentive, enthusiastic and seemed genuinely interested in making the dining experience first rate. With the great restaurant scene that we have in the Miami area, menu and presentation competition is tough. Juvia held its own and met expectations - we were happy with everything we ordered. My husband and I come from design backgrounds so we notice details: I loved the purple napkins with a subtle flower design; he liked the design but not the feel of the flatware, we both loved the exterior and interior live garden walls.

    Juvia is an interesting place. They take the food very seriously and have done a great job at creating some interesting items and variations on old classics that wont disappoint. This was my first time eating there and I was really pleased with the food selection and quality, which they clearly take pride in. The service was ok but then deteriorated a bit as the night progressed. Being it was my only experience there its hard to really make a generalization, but the waiter had a great personality and all, he was just mostly absent. When I have to get up from the table, find him and ask him for something, its usually a bad sign. Busy? Sure, but all good restaurants are. Typical service for Miami when gratuity is included. Still worth it!

    The place is ok, the terrace is the hot spot. In side dinning is terrible because of the noise...no acustic in their, too noisy! Better to go for drinks late night or just book a table outside. Quite expensive for what it is...better to go for drinks and appetizers than dinner.

    A very hot (meaning trendy) but friendly place to have an event dinner. Lots of young, good looking people, which sometimes means that if you don't look like that, you are not treated well, but not so here. Servers great. They offered good advice about the food and were very attentive, though a little too eager to remove plates at times. A beautiful place with a great view. Had an excellent experience. The food was great!

    This was our first time to this restaurant. We were seated near the window as we had requested. The service was excellent and the view of Miami Beach is great! It is certainly the current "hot spot" in Miami Beach and very lively. The food was good but not outstanding. We enjoyed the cocktails (particularly the Mojito and the Sierra Nevada beer). We would go back when we have guests visiting us in Miami Beach but the prices are too high to go back on a regular basis. The wine list in particular is priced on the high side.

    The food is OK, but you don’t go here for the food. You go for the hot scene and/or for drinks. But stay away from the wine list. Probably the worst constructed wine list in Florida... super high priced vault wines, not much for the average or even well heeled person.

    My husband and I wanted to try this new place everyone is talking about. The view and scenery are great. There is a little L.A. feel to the place which makes it different from all the new "places to be" in Miami. We were a little disappointed by the food, as we expected something exceptional. It was very good, but not as amazing as one could think. The service was ok, although we felt like the waitress was trying to make us move fast (she kept clearing out the table when we still had our mouths full). The price was reasonable for this type of place. Generally you can easily go up to $100/person. We paid $160 including tax and tip, with two apetizers, two entrees, two desserts, two glasses of wine and a bottle of water.

Service was okay but didnt warrant 18% automatic gratuity which restaurants on the beach add (as i am a local). I had heard the exact feedback from two other people who had dined there before me so at least it's consistent!

    Beautiful location which makes you wonder why there aren't any other rooftop restaurant on Lincoln Road. That being said, I thought my New York Strip was good although pricey since a third of it was fat (waitress didn't offer to change it).I recommend this restaurant for a couple of drinks before going out or going to the movies down the block. I can't recommend Juvia for Groups since the cost tends grow out of control with more than 3 couples
