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.

We had a good waitress very knowledgeable but he was giving us too much information it made us confused especially it being our first tine there. The appetizers we had was good but the entrees blah. None of us ate the food. Short ribs were very salty, vegetarian fried rice has a weird taste, fried chicken was overly fried and barely had taste. When asked by the waiter if we are enjoying the food we were honest. To accommodate a party of 6 for our dissatisfaction, we received 1 bread pudding for free to share lol. Oh yeah you pay for water. Ambiance was unique but I wouldn’t go back for what we paid.

So I wanted to come here for a date during their happy hour, had been years ago and always held it in fond memory. Well, while the food was great the service was terrible. One thing after another kept happening. First was that when I made reservations I asked for outdoor seating, and when we got there an unmasked man (red flag) showed us to the darkest corner of the room and sat us up against a wall (keep in mind nobody was there) when I asked to sit outside he said there was no seating despite seeing it very much empty. So then a very kind waitress came up up to us and when we asked to sit outside she said yes and brought us there, not sure why the other guy said no. Well once we’re outside our waiter doesn’t even come to us until about 30 minutes (the place was empty) and we had to call him over to us. This waiter was super rude, tons of attitude, kept arguing when we’d try to order something and rolled his eyes constantly as us. THEN we get our food and there’s a metal string in it so they had to take it back. We also ordered happy hour oysters and they had forgotten about them and didn’t get them until after we even bagged everything up. So then I go to pay and the total was double what we actually ordered, they changed us full price for the oysters and a drink, AND charged us for something we never even ordered. So then we had to deal with getting a refund. The experience was so uncomfortable and ridiculously difficult, I didn’t even name all the problems. Will never be going back again

Everything took too long without many people in the restaurant. We have food allergies and they do no accommodate at all, almost nothing to chose from, with a long wait time for everything, and almost no one in the restaurant, we’ll skip coming back and get the Pho to go (which was INCREDIBLE) next time.

Overall nice experience. The wait to get seated was terrible, one hostess seemed to not know what was going on. Our server Antonio was phenomenal and the happy hour drinks are worth the trip. The grilled octopus is a must try.

Food is well done, although is a fusion Vietnamese and is missing many classics.
The music is loud hip hop
The rest of the ambience is very nice
We ( a couple) spent 190 usd on ( 20% tip is automatically added)
12 Oysters
1 Papaya salad
1 Scallop Crudo appetizer
1Fried Chicken main course
1Tiramisu dessert
1 bottle of red wine (57 usd) no wines under 50 usd

Overall a nice experience. A bit overpriced. Music is too loud and hip hop might not be the best choice for a dining experience. Also, no real wine glasses are available.

Had a table for 7 ppl. Many of the items were already out of stock even though our reservation was fairly early so that was disappointing. Good Vietnamese food, but didn’t taste too much of the Cajun influence in most of our dishes, which was a little disappointing. Drinks were enjoyable though. I’d love to see more use of cajun spices though in both the food and the drinks.

If your palate craves, taste and texture out of the ordinary ho hum, the run (don't walk) to Phuc Yea. And while you're there, give yourself permission to have several of the outstanding imaginative cocktails. They spare no effort and are generous with the spirits. Outstanding flavors all around.

Service was good. Food was fine. Drinks were good. Not worth the money overall however and a lot of nickel and dining on the check. $1 per person for flat water. Dumplings were tasty but $15 for NOT handmade dumplings pantries with some sesame seeds was silly.
