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 enjoyed my dines at Phuc Yea in the past, but unfortunately my NYE experience was not good. The first issue was our table. It was not a real table but one of those tiny high top bar tables with backless metal stools. Not what we expected for a $65 per person dining experience. By the end of the evening it was super uncomfortable to sit on those metals stools and we couldn’t wait to leave. We asked if there was anywhere else we could sit but were given an immediate no.

Onto the food, let’s start with the positive: the noodles and chocolate mousse cake were good. Other than that, it was all terrible. The most concerning was the fish main course, which tasted so off we were a little concerned it may have gone bad. Luckily neither of us became ill, but we didn’t eat much of it because the quality was so bad.

At times it felt like they forgot about our table, with long gaps in between dishes. There was a set menu and some of the appetizers were brought after the entrees. We had to ask about 3 times for the noodles, which they forgot to give us. We noticed other tables (with larger parties that came in after us) being served dishes ahead of us. It seemed that because we were only a party of two, they didn’t feel we were worth good/timely service. At least that’s the sense we got. Our waiter was super nice/friendly and apologetic about the situation, revealing they were very understaffed for the night, with only 1 bartender and 2 chefs.

I had to get a negative review but everything was off-
The food was terrible this time, The server annoys the hell out of us… Cannot tell if that’s just the way they were positive or overly cocky

Fantastic experience always at Phuc Yea. It's not Vietnamese, it's not traditional, and it's not boring! From their incredible 'must have' Hickory Smoked Short Rib Pho, to their whole fried fish, irresistible PY Noodles, and everything else in between. This is a great place for people who like to share and try many different items. Get adventurous! Music is awesome old school hip-hop, great vibes, great drinks. Awesome patio. Go early and often!

Sebastian was a great server. The restaurant was practicing the social distancing well. The food was excellent. The music was great just a tad loud where you couldn’t here the server too much and you had to talk loud amongst your group at the table. Other than that everything was really good. Definitely going back

Phuc Yea is a great place for a dinner party! The service was excellent- very attentive. The drinks were really creative and the food was just delicious. The highlights were the mussels, the riblets, the cajun fried rice, the bao buns, and topped it off with a great dessert. All my guests loved it and we'll be back soon! Thanks!

So amazing! We had the pho and the Cajun fried rice and they were so tasty and came in huge portions. When we didn’t like one of the drinks we had ordered the server replaced it with another one. Really cool place and great ambiance.

Value for the cost was not there. My food was fine but we were very unhappy that it took 43 minutes for the waiter to tell my wife that they were out of steak so they could not prepare her order. At that point I was receiving my order and we were not about to order something else and wait another 20 mins to get it. The desert was also not as good as I remember. The Cheezus tasted like they deep fried it in the same oil they friend pork and fish..the taste was a bit off and the fried crust was harder than usual.

Honestly disappointed. I loved this place but I don’t have any motivation to return.

The food was just OK . Portions were large but we had 4 drinks and one soup and the bill was $168 . I thought it was extreme (the tip was included) The beef soup ha a giant piece of short rib in it but the smoke flavor was so strong it over powered the entire dish.

The food is good. The staff are polite, but for reasons I don't understand they tried to seat me outside on the front porch where the road noise and fumes were unpleasant. When I asked to be seated inside they seemed to find this difficult even though there were plenty of places. None of this is a big deal, just made me wonder why we were treated differently

I always love Phuc Yea - been there twice in the past week. Delicious curry mussels and summer roll and sake ... a little disappointed with the masitas and the broccoli dishes this week. But I will always go back for my other favorites. Phuc Yea is very unique, the management makes sure things go perfectly and come around to say hello so the attention is welcome.

Just adore coming here ever now and again for brunch. Circumstances beyond their control some items were sold out when they just opened or product wasn’t up to standard. But the server, Kevin, not only let us know about the situation, more than made up for it!

The starters and the main course came at almost at the same time. There were no space on the table so they got back with the main course to the kitchen and said they would prepare another one! We order 2 deserts (Miami space menu) and it never came! We waited for almost 1h, the waiter came once to apologise, we left without the dessert.
