    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.

    Tuyo has always been excellent. Tonight everything on the Miami Spice menu was spicy with no options otherwise. (Bad planning on the chef's part.) The deep fried curried lamb appetizer was tasty and not too heavy on the curry. High praise from someone who detests curry and hates lamb! The slaw with it was strange and I didn't care for the odd taste. The lobster $15 entree upgrade was mediocre and the "slaw" with it awful tasting but the green rice and hush puppies sides were excellent. The brownies for dessert were horribly dry - I've had better from a box at Winn Dixie. But then, the ice cream and cookie with them were excellent. Hubby's exquisite passion fruit mousse dessert was the total highlight of an otherwise disappointing meal.

    We only go to Tuyo during Miami Spice (August and September) when their prix fixe menu is $39 for 3 courses. Still, it's pricey once you add alcoho,l but well worth it! The service is impeccable, with knowledgable wait staff and a welcoming hostess. Food was super! Great for a special occasion!

    Had dinner with the boyfriend here on 8/8/14 and even through the process of booking a reservation the employees at Tuyo were so caring and understanding. They were willing to push my reservation back an hour. I truly appreciate it. Made my bf's birthday super special. Everyone was super attentive and caring. Thank you Tuyo. Food was delicious. We tried the Miami Spice menu while they were having the Caribbean options. This switch it up like every two weeks. If you're considering Tuyo, I say go for it. Thank you Eric and Sowad.

    We arrived a bit early worrying about all the traffic but the restaurant was very accommodating. This was for the company’s 24th anniversary and we had a lovely table overlooking Downtown Miami & Biscayne Bay. When we arrived one of the cruise ships was leaving so great entrance. We tried the Chef’s Tasting Menu & Wine Pairings it was wonderful. The only thing I did not care for was the fish sticks and they replaced it with the Corvina Ceviche which was delightful. All in all a very good time had by all, food was wonderful, service was excellent & the scenery was worthy of an anniversary celebration. When they brought desert they even wrote Happy Anniversary on the Desert Plate. Tasting Menu has not changed since last year though

    - Service was attentive and friendly. - Menu is created with care. - Ordered items off both the spice and regular menu. - Solid wine list. - Eighth floor but views are mostly overlooking AA stadium and an empty parking lot. Miami skies do impress though. - Professional techniques (exotic reductions, purees, sauces and extravagant plating) didn't make up for not-quite-there-yet execution and most importantly the underlying quality and freshness of the produce and meats. Overall, I left feeling a underwhelmed with the food itself.

    Great service and view. Loved the small restaurant that it is connected with the Miami Culinary institute which affords some of the students the opportunity work in a high end restaurant. I had the Miami Spice Menu, my husband ordered from regular menu. Basic mistake: Jerk Chicken Caesar Salad was drenched in dressing... romaine wilted at the heaviness of the dressing. My fish entrée was good (not excellent). OX tail could have been a lot better. My husband's risotto was OK, but the portion too big. Menu seemed fussy, with unnecessary addition to dishes: Extra dump of cheese in the Risotto, the macaroon on top of my mousse... Tuyo had a fantastic best wine list.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the food, tasting menu was lovely, however portions were large, could not finish the last course. Especially enjoyed the foie gras. Desserts are to die for. That lava cake was unbelievable and the ice creams were the bomb. Looked at your Miami Spice Menu, you need to spell Callaloo with a "C" not a "K".

    TUYO was the worse experience I could ever had in dinning in Miami, despite of all reviews in the internet , they managed to ruined my wedding anniversary and despite all apologies my wedding anniversary in 2014 is only one and will not come back. My experience as Yours can be unique and I tried to put all the details in the review, but is only so many characters they allow, so to make direct to the point, Reviews can be good or excellent, but your experience is what counts and my was terrible. After 2 hrs in the restaurant I didn’t have the bottle of wine in my table, first they couldn’t find the wine, second the broke the cork when they tried to open the cork, so we decided to leave the place. Very disappointed

    Truly a wonderful find in Miami. Food was extremely well done and when something was not quite right, the kitchen took care of it by making an entire new plate. Service was some of the best I have experienced in Miami. If you want a wonderful dinner with a nice view (8th floor of the Miami Culinary Institute), I highly recommend Tuyo.
