Great experience. Food was good, not rave about it good but worth it considering how great the ambiance is. Our waiter Yelena was so sweet and attentive. Would definitely visit again.

Drinks are good. Appetizers are fine. Mains are terrible and were sent back. Our server was lovely. Hostess had an attitude problem.

Ambiance is magical. Food is nothing to rave home about. Ordered Sea bass which lacked flavor. For an appetizer ordered mushroom dumplings which looked way better than they tasted. Completely flavorless. Service was awful. The waitress was running around from table to table.
We felt rushed. Not once were we asked whether we are enjoying the food.

Really romantic, beautiful vibe, wonderful aesthetic, fantastic wine. Getting seated can be a bit chaotic as it is in a hotel, but once seated service is fantastic. Highly recommend for a romantic date.

I made reservations two weeks in advance and when we arrived at the restaurant we had the worst seats. They sat the 4 of us at a table that was meant for two people. My friends were sitting on chairs while my husband and I were sitting on concrete right by the water edge totally ridiculous. I spoke to the manager who was so rude and obnoxious said there is nothing we can do there are no more tables available unless we want to sit inside which obviously you don’t hear the music or see the show then what’s the point of coming to this restaurant? When the food finally arrived it was a total disappointment. Oversalted and lack of flavour. Overall The only thing we enjoyed was the show.

This restaurant could have been so much more if it wasn't for terrible service. We made our reservation on open table for 8pm on a Wednesday but when we got there, our table wasn't ready and they asked us to wait 20 minutes. They finally sat us down 40 minutes after our reservation time. The ambience was great, dim sexy lighting, live DJ with music at perfect volume. The menu has unique options and I was looking to try out different dishes. When our waiter got to our table, I asked him for some recommendations, but he said that he has "like 50 tables" and that if we are not ready he will come back. We did ask for drinks a few appetizers. When the waiter returned 10 minutes later he told us he did not put in our order for drinks and appetizers as he wanted to make sure we had a complete order. We ordered Truffle dumplings, braised duck and seabass. The food arrived 50 minutes later, all together. At no point did we see our waiter again to see if we wanted more drinks (we did) or that we wanted more food (we did). The food and drinks that we did get were delicious, but the terrible service left us with a sour taste.

The food was spectacular. Toss up between the Salmon or the SeaBass. Great flavors!
Service was lacking and diminished the experience of this unique restaurant.
Our server took order, then we didn’t see her again until we were done with dinner. Dinning assistants delivered food. Could have been a spectacular dinner...

This is one very beautiful and unique restaurant. If you're looking for ambiance and a very romantic setting, this is it! Great service, great food, great drinks and awesome music. Can't wait to visit Miami South Beach again and go back to Jaya.

The server was not very knowledgable with champagnes and wine we ordered.
We asked for a Rose champagne and he came back with just a Rose wine, or maybe was out of stock of Rose champagne. Then we tried to order a very nice bottle of red and were out of stock of several we asked for. We kept sticking out with drinks. It was disappointing because it was a birthday dinner and this is a high end restaurant that we would expect quality high end service. The food and ambiance were good.

Unbelievably poor experience. We arrived 5 minutes early, at 8:40pm. There was a line of 8 people to check in. We were told to wait and that the table would be ready soon. At 9:15 we still hadn't been seated and the incredibly rude host lady basically barked at us to stay waiting in the crowed, non COVID friendly waiting area. Eventually we got seated 45 minutes later. The food was fine to good. The prices were high, but fine for Miami. The service was horrible and the host should be fired.

Very cool space. Too bad the food was not that good (way over-sauced). The music was so loud it was really tough for our 4some to have a conversation. But the worst of all was the service. it was a 3 hour dinner (no way we were going to wait longer to order and receive desert). It took 25 mins to get water, another 15 to get drinks and who knows how long for dinner. After we were all obviously done eating we finally asked a second person to clear our table. Never going back.

Excellent. Service by Amala! The drinks were heavenly! The food was very good but being Asian ourselves we expected more spice or flavoring - overall very good but a little pricey ! Ambience was amazing! Beautiful decor and the DJ was the best mixer! Will definitely go again!

We were seated right next to “bar area” and the people were intolerably noisy. We complained a few times to no avail. We were seated way late relative to our reservation.

This was our second trip to Jaya during our vacation to South Beach. As good as the first dinner was, this was even better. We shared the Har Gau (amazing), my husband had the Nasi Goreng which had great flavor, and I had the Pad Thai. Everything was incredible and so flavorful. The service was spot on, the music fun and energetic and the restaurant had beautiful ambiance. This will be a can’t miss for future trips to Miami!

Came here for Valentines Day and when we made the reservations we didn’t know they had a fixed menu. We arrived and nothing on the menu was Vegan friendly. We were disappointed but it’s not their fault. We were able to get one drink because the waiter told us the tables were only for people who were eating.
