    Staff is very Miami...very arrogant and "no" is their favorite word. I have food allergies and tried to modify my order and I was told "no changes to the dish as Chef doesn't allow it, choose something else or don't eat". Rude service staff and pompous manager on duty. I am a Miami Local and will not reccommend this restaurant to anyone based on the service recieved. Valet even made me come to him in the pouring rain because he said "he didn't want to get wet opening the car door." 20 buks for me to do the work...nice...

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/20/2012
    Lovely restaurant, great table (thanks OpenTable), vibrant atmosphere, good music...and the ambiance was spectacular. It would be hard to beat this restaurant on that score. Very attentive wait staff, music was varied and at just the right level. I took my daughter for her birthday and they did stick a candle in the dessert we ordered but that was it as far as that went. The menu was certainly eclectic and a bit difficult to understand but questions were readily answered by staff. I think some appetizers that were a bit more recognizable and not raw meat and seafood would have been a good addition to the menu. We tried the tuna croquette and it was enjoyable and unlike anything else I've eaten. I don't eat anything raw, ever.

    Juvia is more about the scene than the food but the food is very good. We felt like we weren't hip enough for our server to be attentive or helpful but it didn't take away from the view or the food so we would definitely recommend Juvia.

    Went with a friend for dinner and came back with my daughters for lunch. Dinner was busy, service a little slow but loved the restaurant, perfect ambiance and the food is the best in Miami so came back for lunch and it was amazing too. The drinks (cucumber and lemonade) were delicious. Highly recommend the Hamachi tuna with foam.

  • 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.
