Great place for some breeze and a nice brunch. Outside is better than inside as there is a better view. The service is amazing, the staff is always checking on you to make sure everything is great. The food was great, but the brunch menu could be a little more extensive.

Food was excellent. Views were amazing. Atmosphere very nice. Music was too loud, thus we couldn’t hear each other talk. Bartender and table waiter were rude. Miami Beach really needs to teach their bartenders and waiters how to be polite. Too many of them are rude. Poor customer service due to rudeness will cause Miami Beach to lose its value and will drive people away. Perhaps more restaurants need guest relations trainers to teach their staff the value of politeness.

Terrible customer service, especially those hostesses and waiter, I guess the built in 18% tip let's them get away with terrible service and attitude. Made up resort fee. NOT worth the view. Mediocre food/drinks. How has this place not gone out of business?

We arrived on time and one of our diners was not feeling well so did not join us. The host gave us a snarky comment. They sat us at a table in the corner which might have been a great location if it had not been windy. The waiter told us he did not know why they sat us there as it was a wind tunnel. After 15 minutes we moved and noticed 4 other parties were later seated there and then moved. The mussels and truffle fries were cold and insipid. The ceviche was amazing. The Panko chicken was as boring as it sounds and somewhat over cooked. What was I thinking?. The tenderloin was average and the sea bass had no flavor but a beautiful presentation. We were aggravated so passed on dessert. Juvia is usually amazing. Maybe it was an off night. Service was awkward at best but mostly non-existent. Champagne selection was weird. The lower and moderate priced bottles were not good and it seemed excessive to pay over 500 for a decent bottle. The Magic Potion tequila cocktail was outstanding and drinking 4 of them got me through an otherwise lackluster meal. Will we go back? Probably, as this was our first bad visit after numerous good experiences. Hopefully it is not a sign of going downhill. Definitely expected more consistency with so many options in south beach.

Table was not ready, had to wait 30 min
Drinks took longer than the apps
Moved my table twice
Dishes weren't valued correct for its portion, presentation was nice.

High volume operation with a lack of organization and lack of value relative to price and result. View and vibe is always nice, thats the only reason i would come back for. Take away the rooftop views and the DJ and your operation is lacking big time.

Dined at Juvia 5 years ago while visiting SB. Finally returned this past week and can only wonder why I waited so long. Truly memorable night with delicious food and drink, outstanding service and also great tunes from the DJ while we sat under a full moon in Miami. Could not ask for more except a return visit in April.

Front house staff and manager did not honor concerns about appropriate Covid precautions after having received confirmation the day prior they would be able to do so. We arrived on time for our reservation to be told they would not honor our request under any circumstance that evening. After telling them we felt unsafe and that we were leaving, they marked us a no-show for our reservation and charged us the full cancellation fee. Extremely poor service.

Our experience for a fine dining restaurant horrible. The hostess was an absolute nightmare. She was arrogant, dismissive and rude. She didn’t communicate clearly nor care if customers were tended to. I get it that she’s frontline and it’s a frustrating role, but being pretty isn’t enough folks. You need to add service to your repertoire. I hope management reads this and heeds the advice that service and attitude make a huge difference. We had to fight for service once we were finally seated and while the food was flavorful and creative, the service is an abomination.

This was our fourth time here. The food is always good, the environment is amazing with the view. I felt that the entrance gives you the feeling that this property is not well taken care of. Lights were out and a hole in the wall by the elevators. Just first impressions. Overall I love to dine at Juvia however they need to keep up with a more luxurious experience especially for the price. This is a restaurant that should delight all the senses from the time you walk in to the time you leave.

It’s a great place for a date night. A bit expensive however. I got the tenderloin and my date got the salmon. The tenderloin was flavorful but the veggies were bland. The salmon was delicious!

Excelente lugar. Excelente comida. Muy sobrrvalorada yo creo. He comida mejor plates en otro lugares por menos precio pero aun así estaba Rico. Pedimos el salmon tartare, y habichi jalapeño que de jalapeño no tenia nada y de platos fuertes pedimos el NY que estaba muy rico y muy caro para el tamaño y venía con papas fritas. Yo me pregunto un plato tan caro como más $50 lo servirias con papas fritas en un restaurante "japonés frances". También el salmón la ensalada que venia con el más parecía decoración. El risoto con hongos estaba buenísimo pero no habíamos acabado hasta que un chico nos quito el plato sin darnos cuenta. Los tragos buenísimos. Los postres también que fueron profiteroles y berries tartare. De sorpresa nos llegó galletas que en la cuenta salían a $5 pero nunca las ordenamos aún así nos la comimos. Por otro lado pedimos el Juvia shot que nunca nos llego y la mesera solo llego a ofrecernos la cuenta. El servicio me parece que la mesera necesito organizarse porque iba caminando por todos lados pero sin nada en mano. Al principio llego como sin ganas de atendernos hasta que le ordenamos los platos que cambio su actitud a más amigable. después se demoro demasiado en traer la segunda botella de agua, su compañero le pedía la botella pero ella parecía como alborotada. La cuenta salió $400 o más creo con el 18% agregado que me parece injusto por el servicio que nos dio. Mas servicio obtuvimos de su ayudante que siempre nos preguntaba si necesitábamos algo.
Repito el risoto espectacular y no soy fan del hongo. Super recomendado.
El duckn bag buenísimo. Es un trago que viene en bolsa yo pensé que jugaban conmigo cuando me trajeron eso pero cuando lo probé cambie de parecer.
Nos trajo el glamour como trago cuando pedimos el purple juvia. Nosotros para no tener ningún problema con el mesero y que nos trate peor nos quedamos callados a todo y también para no arruinar nuestra cena. De todas maneras se arruino pero al menos sabemos que ya no volveremos.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Juvia last year. Our experience was excellent, so we decided to return to Juvia for this year’s anniversary. Our experience, again, was excellent. The cocktails are unique and delicious, as is the food. The view from the roof deck where our table was located, particularly at sunset, was spectacular. The service was also excellent. I would highly recommend Juvia for any occasion.

They don't have a way to book an outside vs inside table. We indicated on the reservation that we wanted an outside table. No matter, they pointed us to an inside one. When we asked how we could sit in an outside table, they were basically like "we don't allow preferences." I doubt this is true, of course, but I guess my nicely but conservatively dressed family of 4 celebrating my birthday were not of the cool crowd. We are mid 50's with two teenage daughters. The inside is noisy.

So, if you are part of the cool crowd, you may fare better. The food was mediocre and generally expensive for what it offered. For Miami, it is good though. We travel and eat out a lot and we are foodies, so I would say it is a 4/5 for Miami in terms of food and if you manage to sit outside, it's a 4/5 in terms of ambience. Service is hectic.

I would recommend with reservations.

I love the place, great view of Miami Beach, very nice atmosphere, great service.

This is my second time at Juvia and it was even better than the first one.

Just think it is a little bit too much to charge $50.00 per person if the reservation is not cancelled 24 hrs before your reservation time... I would say a few hours it is reasonable.

TERRIBLE SERVICE. I mean I swear I dine a lot. I’m not particularly sensitive to bad service. I get it, people are busy and I’m familiar with how it works. I don’t even leave reviews like this.

But truly the worst service I’ve ever seen.

Muy mala atención desde el inicio nos tuvieron esperando una hora para darnos la mesa, el ambiente muy descuidado, lleno de gente sin tapa boca y mucha gente alrededor de las mesas, la comida malísima!!! Realmente yo no voy mas y sugiero a la gente de esta comunidad que no lo intente siquiera, hay otros lugares mucho mejores y mas baratos, esta reservación fue muy cara y me sentí defraudado

En general todo estuvo muy bien excepto la recepción y el tiempo de espera que no era lo que esperábamos luego de pagar U$S 160 por persona, y más cuando veías que había mesas ya preparadas. Y de hecho una fue la nuestra que estuvo preparada al menos 20 minutos antes de sentarnos.

The food was awful. The brick of beef they called short ribs was anything but and I wouldn’t recommend it as prison food. Waiter had no interest in asking how the food was because he likely knew it was cold garbage. The dessert was not edible. Sat us 45 mins late which I understand but no excuse for the food being so bad when it’s a limited menu.
