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 LOVE TO EAT , I go out every week to a dfferent restaurant, and always read reviews.
Very few times I have written a negative review. But this time was the worst. We had a terrible experience. The host/manager was ironic and unpolite.
After we paid an expensive bill which included a 20% service, we were insulted and kicked out of the restaurant by the owner who was worst than the manager. We did nothing wrong and when prompt the owner and manager just insulted all of our group for no reason.
Other reviews also describe similar feedback about host and owner
Food was very good; but unfortunately I am never returning to this place.

The service was terrible and the waiter barely came around. I ordered oysters and requested crackers. No crackers appeared. I ordered a martini and had to remind the waiter twice. It get it that this is a gourmet place, but the portions were tiny and overpriced. Spent $200 on three drinks, oysters, and two small appetizers (no dinner) and had to go to McDonalds afterward because I was so hungry. This is a place to go if you have a lot of cash to blow or if money means nothing to you.

8:30pm reservation on a Saturday night. We were seated promptly and placed starter, wine and soft drink orders. We started with the Oyster Mushrooms and Pork Bao. It was a telling sign that the starters didn't arrive for nearly 45 minutes (9:12pm according to my iPhone camera timestamp) and the Bao were cool to the touch. The flavors were otherwise okay but I think I was probably expecting something more (literally and figuratively) for the $29 we spent on starters.

At this point, the fun really starts. Another 47 minutes pass. During this time, our waiter comes by and blames a large party, our waiter promises to comp our food, a manager comes by and says it'll only be three more minutes (very precise...it wasn't just three minutes), the manager comes by again promising drink refills that never show up, etc. We discuss going to a Popeye's we saw on the drive over.

Finally at 9:59pm some of our mains arrive - my wife's Black Cod and an order of the PY Noodles. My wife asks our server for a side of white rice (seems like a staple at many Asian inspired restaurants). The Cod and the Noodles are actually pretty tasty, and most importantly hot to the touch and taste.

10:08pm - $50 worth of short rib finally turns up right as I am flagging down our waiter to close our tab and leave. We accept the order although by this point, I've already scarfed down the PY Noodles in full and am just ready to go.

A few minutes after that, my wife's white rice turns up along with the check for the full balance of our meal. The irony of being charged $5 for a side of white rice that showed up 15 minutes after the main it was needed for....

I hate leaving bad reviews but honest truth is that there are hundreds of great restaurants in Miami that will gladly serve you a hot meal, quickly, and probably for a lot less than $220. We won't return and can't recommend.

We love oysters. We eat a lot of them. That can get pricey at the going rate. We used to go to the Four Seasons for happy hour with $1 oysters, but they discontinued the practice. Desperate I googled “$1 oysters Miami” and Phuc Yea came up. We went last night and were blown away by the service, the oysters and the menu. An awesome spot and our new favorite restaurant. Kathy is the manager. She was pressed into service when some of her wait staff were not able to come to work. It is commonplace now in our battle with the Omicron variant. Kathy cheerfully picked up the slack. It is the mark of a well led staff. Bravo

Once you get inside you’re in a different world, one of exotic and unusual dishes that are at once familiar and exciting. The papaya salad and XO noodles were outstanding. Juan and all of the servers were friendly and attentive. Happy hour manhattan was tasty and a bargain. Well worth the trip!

I have been to this restaurant twice. The first time, the service was poor but the food was so amazing that I had to go back. Yesterday, the service was great. They were all friendly, which is a lot to say considering what you get at most restaurants in Miami. However, I was disappointed with the short rib pho. It was very salty this time. I was so impressed the first time I tried it. It was absolutely perfect. Yesterday was a different story. The salt level made it an unbalanced and unpleasant dish for my friends and I. Please remember to taste the food before it goes out. As you probably know, water evaporates from hot soup dishes, the liquid reduces, and the salt concentrates. The rest of the food was tasty. Please consistent! That’s how you get long-term and loyal customers.

Had a very lovely dining experience this past Saturday at Phuc Yea. My waiter Juan was very polite, attentive, and provided great service as he did a few weeks ago during my wedding anniversary dinner. This visit included a friend who joined my husband and I. We arrived early due to Art Basel and kicked off the night with 2 dozen oysters that were divine and it was Happy Hour half priced!

The 1818 champagne is deliciously crisp and I had 2 glasses. We also ordered to dine:

- SPECIAL PHUC YEA PHO (Best Pho I have ever had)
- SPICY WATERMELON SALAD (absolutely delicious and very flavorful)
- SMACKED CUCUMBERS
- GREEN BEANS

I plan on returning to dine in 2 weeks when my bestie arrives for the Winter holidays.

Special shout out to Cathy the Manager, who is doing a phenomenal job managing the restaurant flow and providing outstanding, personalized service.

Keep up the great work!

I have been many times and always a stellar meal and service however this last time the service was terrible. An all new staff left us waiting way too long before a server came. Drinks took forever and the food did too with a late arrival of a noodle dish after all of the food and been sent.
