    I want to the restaurant for the first time .. Beautiful setting and great views how ever the food , was not what I expected . I ordered the Short Ribbed , Meat was very tender ,, but lacked flavor.. My companion ordered the Scallops, they a little salty and kind of raw on the inside Service was great and friendly

    Food here is excellent. My wife had the flounder meunière that was superb. My duck was perfectly cooked. The creme brûlée dessert was to die for. Our server picked excellent wines to pair with each course and was very attentive. Oh and did I mention the spectacular view of Miami? Doesn't get much better.

    I really enjoyed the food it was seasoned well, the view was spectacular the service was very good. The staff made u feel welcome and we're knowledgable about the course as they came out. I would reccomend Tuyo u should try it at least once. The only thing I did like not was that they added 18% tips to your check. Especially because it was just me on the check. Not good .

    Nicely done, a real treat. They put it all together, the food, the music, the atmosphere and the feeling of having a special dining experience. Menu was easy to read and informative/playful within the theme. Service attentive without intrusion and they managed a 'bump' with aplomb. One diner noted an allergy to one of the accompaniments presented (the ingredient had not been listed on the menu) however the substitution was made quickly and gracefully>

    amazing views of downtown miami. The overall dining experience was top-notch, starting with the visual atmosphere of the view of miami and the enticing fireplace. The taste and texture of the ingredients of each perfectly created and presented dish was outstanding. appreciated the in-depth description of each presentation. The wine pairing was well thought out and fit appropriately. Tuyo is definitely worth repeating, especially for special occasions where they apparently took notice of my birthday info from my Open Table profile since it was unannounced and unsolicited. Thank you

    For anyone who would have apprehensions about dining at a restaurant in a culinary institute as the may seem to think that the chefs and restaurant staff are anything less than totally professional, I want to dispel those notions. The level of professionalism and the ambiance created here by the staff were impeccable as were the flavours created in the dishes!

    We were very underwhelmed by both the food and service ( FYI 18% is added so server doesn't care) It began well with a very good vichyssoise however it was only 1-2 ounce serving ( we wondered if they were running out?) Food had issues Duck was tough and Fish overly salty. Dessert was nice but could not make up for rest of meal. Ou server did not check on our meal until we were eating dessert even though there were only 3 tables . Its too bad as we would have come often, Tuyo is close to our condo

    If you want outstanding service with a great view this is the place. Located at the top floor of the Miami Culinary Institute, this is a gem. You must give this place a shot. Try the Chef's Menu, changes every week and it is very good (not a big fan of the duck dish, but everything else was fabulous). They are have "Sals and Merenge" this month as a theme for Miami Spice and it was very good to (according to my wife). They also have some dinner and show specials so be on the look out!

    I ate at tuyo when Norman can Aiken was the executive chef. It has dropped considerably since. Food was bland and unremarkable. For a beautiful view of Miami, they had the lights on bright until the end of meal when they softened them and then, for no reason, turned them up again. Service was spotty since it appeared they were short staffed. With all the options in Miami, would not go back.

    We were greeted wonderfully from the valet staff, maître d and restaurant staff. Staff was very attentive and accommodating. Food was fantastic (all 3 courses - Miami Spice menu - rock and roll), plates was very well presented and placed perfectly for each guest. Loved the mixture of contrasting palette on each dish. Cant wait to see what's next when the menu change in a week. Our party had a wonderful and memorable time.

    I took my girlfriend here in to celebrate a special occasion. I wanted to take her somewhere that participated in Miami Spice, without skimping on the menu offerings. That is exactly what we found. All of the menu selections were complementary, and creative. We made sure to order different selections for all three courses and we're hard pressed to decide whose was tastier. We did venture off of the Miami Spice menu for cocktails and the octopus appetizer. Well worth the $. Overall the waitstaff were all informed and very attentive. The most memorable part of the dinner was the "Fire and Ice" dessert. The "Chopped-esque" dessert consisted an apple-wasabi sorbet, paired with a white chocolate semifreddo. AMAZING!

    Have read so much about the restaurant that I was looking forward to it; however, it was disappointing. Order a $32. Old Fashion that was not made correctly; had to send it back. Octopus appetizer highly recommended by the server tasted charred. Pork tenderloin was excellent. The Snapper was good not great. The White chocolate dessert was excellent; however the raspberry cheesecake taste was too strong. Went on Miami Spice but prices were extremely high. Will not visit again.

    We took advantage of Miami Vice last Saturday and, hands down, Tuyo tops the list in very heavy competition. We have been to ZZum, DB Moderne, and Cipriani among others. Tuyo"s Miami Spice memo was creative, and delicious. An added benefit was a tour we were given of the school. It matches the restaurant in it creativity. MDC should be very proud of thios offering.

    We went to try the Miami Spice, music-themed menu and we enjoyed it thoroughly. At Tuyo, you always can expect creative, fresh, perfectly prepared food and delicious wine pairings. The waitstaff is attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. The view of downtown Miami, the AA Arena, and part of the bay is breathtaking. Everybody must eat at Tuyo at least once in their lifetime.

    Ambiance was very nice and view was very nice at night as it overlooked the colorful immigration tower. Food was good. Had the Miami Spice menu. The conch salad (my favorite dish that night) was the best appetizer and maybe the 1 lb. lobster beat the cod w/ coconut rice. Island cocktail did not disappoint. Dessert was good, but average.
