Couldn't be happier. Very impressive set up, and they went out of their way to make sure we would be happy and well taken care of. Valet parking was easy and simple. Would recommend to anyone that wants to have a great meal.

I would highly recommend the Sunday Brunch. Food variety and quality are above other options in luxury hotels. Live Jazz was excellent though a bit too loud

Food was overall very good. Split a few appetizers amongst 3 of us, tuna tacos, yellowtail and truffle dumplings. Tuna tacos were great, except for the micro green garnish which contained cilantro. When we were seated, the first question that we were asked after our choice of water was if we have any food allergies. I stated cilantro, as I’m part of the 10% of the population to whom cilantro tastes like soap or detergent (my reaction is like this, pretty immediate and severe, it’s gross). After spitting out my tuna taco and asking about the garnish, they came back and apologized that the chef didn’t know there was cilantro in the micro greens. Not very professional. They did bring us a replacement that was very good. Our mains were the Peking duck (very good), pad Thai (I thought it was excellent) and nasi goreng which the table agreed was bland and somewhat flavorless despite being warned by our server that it was kind of spicy. Over a nice meal but not not worth the premium price you pay.

Great food and ambiance. Unfortunately, no warning that there would be a club level DJ blazing music and live music on top of that noise level. 10 minutes we were able to speak if we yelled. Too bad because food and atmosphere lovely. I've been before and has always been a quiet zen place. This was nuts! When you spend over $500 and can't speak, its not pleasant.

Incredible ambiance for a Saturday night out with the girls. The food and drinks were delicious, and eating outside in the courtyard was a unique experience - it was like being in a nice club without the crowds etc. There was a DJ remixing top hits and musicians walking around playing electric violin and saxophone. It overall was a truly unique experience, the food was tasty (entrees are not cheap but are also large for sharing) and the staff were very professional. I hope to return soon!

Went for Miami Spice - was given the Spice menu without having to ask for it. Ate in the courtyard which was windy but we were seated in a sheltered area. Very nice setting except that the pounding bass music was very loud and we were seated near a speaker. We asked for the volume to be turned down and they changed the music and lowered the volume so it was much better. For appetizers we had the tuna - excellent quality and a decent portion - and the truffle dumplings- also excellent but an $8 upcharge. For entrees we had the beef tenderloin - a small portion, thinly sliced but very tender and with a creamy sesame sauce - and the Thai fried snapper in a tasty sauce along with vegetables. For dessert we both had the semifredo- a different type of dessert but very good. As mentioned, the ambience was very nice in the courtyard, service was very professional, and food was excellent.

Amazing experience. The food was delicious, the service excellent and the presentation and the quantity of food was excellent. The ambience of the exterior seating area was amazing. The show was phenomenal and we had the best evening and by far the best restaurant we visited in Miami. Thank you for a memorable evening. Very stylish and beautifully executed.

Was upset because celebrating my daughters sweet 16 - notes in reservation and called the restaurant day before to make sure they had noted and could do happy birthday desert. Waitress disappeared for over 1/2 hour after entrees were served, had to flag down someone else to say they had not seen the waitress and by the time she came the girls just wanted to leave. No recognition of her birthday or anything even after I called to make sure. Super disappointed in service which is too bad because food was good!

We did the Miami Spice menu. Appetizers and meal were very good, but both desserts were terrible.
Did not even know what we were eating. The Asian Bazaar show was beautiful to watch, but the lag time between performances was too long. My husband kept thinking the show was over after each performance. They should have some filler for in between. Overall we had a nice evening, but some things could have been improved.

This is the second weekend we dine at Jaya. We love EVERYTHING about it! Fantastic service, amazing ambiance, great menu with a lot of options to keep coming back and not getting tired of the same menu. Decent wine list. One of the very very few places where the ambiance - lights, water, music with live violin and saxophone, service and quality of food come together in a perfect harmony. We will be there again and will bring our special guests! In love with this place. Bravo team 👏👏👏👏🔝

We went for a dinner celebrating our anniversary and the venue was just perfect and so was the food. We tried the Miami Spice Menu and it was pretty good. Hopefully next time we'll try from their Al La Carte selection.
