Phuc Yea offers a selection of shareable plates that capture the soulfulness and passion behind family-rooted recipes, the restaurant is inspired by Aniece Meinhold's Vietnamese heritage and Cesar Zapata's Third Coast culinary roots. Under one roof, guests are invited to marvel at Biscayne's blossoming Mimo District; embrace 90's hip-hop, street-cool music; and enjoy Cesar's version of Viet- Cajun cuisine - a lively mash up of fresh and colorful Vietnamese ingredients pumped up with spicy, bold Cajun flavors. This grown up version of Phuc Yea is largely seafood driven.

Brunch features a dim sum style menu that highlights classic American brunch preparations. It is at brunch, Chef Zapata will feature his Gulf and Southern influences more prominently while still integrating Vietnamese breakfast tradition.

I’m a chef and very particular. Everything we had was fabulous and well executed. The cocktails were inventive and service was awesome.
It had rained so we couldn’t sit in the cute back porch butt we were able to sit outside in front. A bit noisy in a Friday night but after a couple Japanese whiskies I couldn’t hear it anymore.
We had the papaya salad, chicken wings, pork masitas + salmon spring roll. All delicious and made with integrity.

Food was good but the services took too long.
There was only one waiter for all the tables
We sat down at 5:30pm and we didn’t get a drink until 6:45
The food took too long as well. We left the Resturant at 10pm and not by choice. Obviously if our reservation was early dinner was bc we wanted to finish early.
The food was tasty
The place is nice
Our server was nice
They need more servers

Claudio was probably the best server we’ve had in years. Poor guy was waiting on 5 tables and did a phenomenal job! Didn’t skip a beat. Gave excellent recommendations, and just blew us always with exceptional service.

As for the food, we know you’ll never be disappointed with anything you order. However, if you’ve not tried the tartar to date, you should. And, if you are ordering the short rib, know you can serve a family of 6 with it! It’s a big dish, but absolutely worth trying.

It wasn’t a good experience. Wanted the Miami Spice Menu and more items and was told we had to choose one or the other for the table. It was very disappointing! One of my favorite spots and I was completely let down. Our coconut ginger chicken had neither ginger nor coconut...but it had pineapple for sure.

This has always been a terrific restaurant but they truly rose to the challenge with the pandemic... and Miami's oppressive summer heat. Their drinks were very refreshing and they made us feel at home on their outside patio. The red lanterns in the back patio are a selfie must. Looking forward to visiting again.. indoors or out!

Food and service were amazing! The outdoor seating is in the back of the building and adjoining to the parking lot so it’s not the most amazing venue in terms of atmosphere but the food and service definitely made up for it. We had great cocktails and great recommendations from the server, she was overall super nice and very attentive! Will come back :)

My good friend and I came here on a Friday night during COVID-19. As per regulations, we sat outside. Even in the midst of Miami full-blown summer, the folks at Phuc kept us fresh with super powerful fans and shaded dining area. The drinks were delicious and they even had new ones. The adult lychee boba with elderflower liquor was as delicious as it was refreshing.

Celebrated my 23rd Birthday there and it honestly didn't disappoint even if we are under a quarantine.

The food was amazing. The service was excellent and they really do follow protocols established in our "new normal."

The FRIED RICE was heaven. Honestly I'd go back just for 5 bowls of it.

They even gave me free birthday shots which was just a special touch.

Overall 10/10

I have eaten here so many times through the years since it opened! As a Vietnamese-American, it never disappoints me! Of course, please note, this is Vietnamese-Cajun fusion. Do not expect traditional Vietnamese dishes, but expect to be surprised and love the spins and twists this great team puts a great spread on the table for you! I always recommend to many. I've celebrated holidays/occasions here, ordered during quarantine, and I have even brought my own parents here for dinner without being criticized (they're very particular). Always a great meal!!

Food was very good, good enough that we would visit again despite the service being sub-par. We waited long times in between being checked on, my husband requested hot sauce for our appetizer that he did not receive until after our entrees arrived and part of my entree was forgotten and had to be requested. However, the food was delicious and we would be willing to make the 20 minute drive to visit again.

I’ve been a handful of times at this point. The menu is always changing but the good vibes are always the same. I absolutely love their bread budding (cannot get enough!), their edamame hummus blew me away, and all of their rolls are delicious. The plating is always upscale which I love 😍 upscale plating without the “stuffy” environment. The decor, servers, vibe is all very playful and laidback In the front of the house & back — reserve upstairs for a more “romantic” vibe.

Overall I love this place. I have gone twice now and it’s definitely a spot for the keep pile. The food is on the outstanding yo rare end of the spectrum. The curries, seafood and chicken dishes do not fail to impress. I had the Tiramisu for desert and it had a nice tres leches twist to the presentation and what tasted like a bourbon liqueur , which added just that little bit to take something from common to uncommon. The only reason why this review is not a five star is because the hostess up front is crap. She does a disservice to an otherwise excellent restaurant

We went there for a pre-theater dinner. The food is very interesting. In the fusion between cajun cuisine and Vietnamese cuisine. Surprisingly, it worked. The food It’s not what you would expect. Overall, I liked it. I would go again.
