Loved the food and service. Great if you want a small venue
The restaurant is on the 8th floor of a nondescript building that houses the Miami Culinary School, which is part of Miami Dade College Downtown Campus. The only thing that is mundane about this restaurant is the building entrance. Once you get to the 8th floor, you'll find a simple, but nicely decorated space with glass windows overlooking the Freedom Tower, American Airlines Arena and Biscayne Bay. The service is friendly and impeccable and the food is absolutely gourmet and delicious. Not sure what the restaurant's affiliation with the culinary school is, but I assure you that students are not preparing these delicious recipes. We were a party of four and we each ordered different appetizers, main dishes and desserts, so we tasted a great variety of dishes and unanimously agreed that all of them were excellent. No use in recommending any particular dishes because the menu changes each quarter, according to our server. The wine list is very reasonably priced. The prices are higher than your typical family restaurant , but not expensive at all for the type of cuisine you are getting. When you take into account the quality of the ingredients and the preparation, the prices are very reasonable. We will be returning to this gem soon.
We love this place. Its "fine"dining at its best. The food is very unusual and special. My only complaint is the portions are small and the menu choices are limited. But We've been here three times and are never disappointed!
The staff was so polite and knowledgeable about the wines and food. The manager was very gracious and accommodating even though we arrived very early for our reservation.
Food was delicious and the service was oustanding!! Will definitely come back!!
We loved the tasting menu and had a great time speaking with our server, Edwin. Everyone was very friendly. The experience was exceptionally nice. We want to come back soon to try the lunch menu.
I had not been aware of this restaurant before finding it on Open Table. It was a nice find. The hostess was the best--welcoming and gracious. Enjoyed my meal very much. Service was friendly and just right.
It was a weeknight & we celebrated our anniversary. It wasn't empty yet it wasn't crowded at 7:00 pm. Everything was delicious! The dishes are better than the menu descriptions! We shared one of each: the tasting menu, an appetizer, dessert & a bottle of wine.
I highly recommend this restaurant!
Tuyo was recommended by a friend and it turned out to be an unique experience! I planned it for my anniversary with my better half and it did not disappoint. From the welcoming, to the chef's courtesy bites, the service and food itself, I was left truly satisfied and already can't wait to be back. Exceptional service, staff was really knowledgeable about the items being presented, I did not even flinch and my utensils were constantly being checked upon as well as that warm bread being replaced on the table as the appetizers came. The food was divine, balanced and fresh.. it really set the tone for how well the place looked already. It was a night to remember! Tuyo, you got repeating business in me. :)
lovely, great food, beautiful place, good value
The food was good but nothing worth raving about. It may have been the limited menu so will definitely give them another try.
Very romantic setting, great for a special occasion.
Fabulous fabulous fabulous it was just out right fabulous.
Very Beautiful everyone was very nice and I enjoyed my time there , would really recommend it to someone else.
Our Valentine Dinner at Tuyo was Amazing.❤️
Lovely ambiance and attentive staff. Nice wine choices. A great spot in Miami!
Pre Valentines Day Dinner. Service and Food was great. Lovely ambience. Spectacular view of downtown.
I would say this is a hidden gem since it’s atop the culinary school in downtown Miami, and not in a ‘mainstream’ area. Once the elevator doors open you’re immediately greeted with a wonderful city view. The service was as outstanding as the ambiance. Small, but makes up for it in its presentation.
Once again we were wowed by Tuyo, food, service, ambience—all were excellent! Definitely a 5 star experience.
Excellent...perfect setting in downtown Miami.....the front staff made sure I could find the place and the free parking days in advance..... they made it easy to go to the Heat game after by suggesting to park at there free lot ......best wait staff and chef sent a special surprise for me as it was my birthday but nobody in my party made any special requests. Will go back again an again
Nice dining room with great views over to the Freedom Tower and bay beyond.
Excellent attentive service. Good wine list with very reasonable markups.
Food good with wonderful presentation and sensible portion sizes (don’t expect large heaps!). Only issue was way too much salt in my sprouts!
Wish there had been a few more guests to improve the ambience.
Will definitely return and highly recommend.
My wife and I had a great experience. It was our 5 years wedding anniversary. Food, Service, ambiance, the view were absolutely amazing
Beautiful space. Great view of the city. Do know that it’s a preeetty quiet place. Music and ambiance are present, but mildly. The food was great; got a welcoming small bite from the chef, got a bottle of red (great price); had the Squash soup, which was fantastic; I got the Halibut, which was out of this world, and he got the Lamb, also amazing. Only note is that the risotto with the lamb was a little al dente. Otherwise, it was lovely, very chill experience, perfect for a quiet weekday night out. Would absolutely recommend.
This is an exceptional hidden gem that has amazing sky top views of downtown, Freedom Tower and the Arena. The service staff are knowledgeable and attentive and the food is always exceptional from the first course to dessert. Perfect for date night!
The city view is very beautiful as the tables are set near the windows looking out into Miami’s downtown. The waiter was excellent and very considerate. He even helped my date get rid of a ketchup stain accidentally spilled on her white dress. I had chef’s special course for the day, white chocolate mousse cake, and creme brûlée. It was by far one of the best food and desert I had during my stay in Miami.
This place is a hidden gym. Atop the MDC culinary institute, it has great views of dowtown miami. The food was simple but flavorful and creative. We were the first to arrive and the waiter brought out a special item from the chef. It was so delicious. The wait staff was great. Our drinks were great. Overall a very great place.
Too expensive not worth money, service was slow and not good customer service
The wine pairing had too many sweet wines.
Todo estuvo excelente aunque demasiado alcaparras (capers) en la picata de pollo.
Faultless service & food. This place is a secret that should be shared.
The service was exquisite, from the moment we walked in to the very end, we even got a private tour of the place. The chef sent us a free appetizer that was delicious. Loved the experience and OpenTable made it easy for me to set up the appointment with a email reminder of my appointment the day before. LOVE IT!!
Tuyo had a reputation I really wanted to check for myself. The reviews were absolutely right. The food is creatively prepared with seasonal and local ingredients. The service was the best I found in Miami where our server was not only knowledgeable about the food and its preparation but about the wine too.This is definitely a great place.
Food is tasty. Not the best portion sizes based on price but the flavors and execution is usually good. I’ve been to Tuyo a few times so this is not based on a single experience. The view is nice and a great view of the Miami Freedom Tower. Also great location close to downtown activities. When they aren’t booked. It’s a great place to eat at. Recently I went an hour before a concert and it was packed. We sat down when we had our reservation and we were provided water and bread. For the first 30min that was all that happened. No other waiter came to the table, nobody attempted to serve additional water or bread. It was extremely poorly managed. It took us getting up out of our seats to tell them about it. Of course we ended up late to our concert. The management didn’t even try to compensate and the waiter just said, that’s what happens in Miami things don’t always start on time. Truly disappointed, not just of the slow service but, in the lack of an attempt to compensate for the mismanagement. As nice as the food is, it doesn’t compensate for the poor management and apathetic service.
Really enjoyed my experience. The view from the 8th floor is fantastic. Only complaint I have is my fillet was only room temperature when I got it. The taste was great however. I would come here again.
Can’t manage with 4 tables at once
Mediocre food with no real skill in cooking
Waste of a great view
The food, service and ambiance were amazing. I would definitely be back and would recommend to friends and colleagues.
Went on my husband ‘s Birthday. They took great care of us. Food was excellent. They also gave a complementary desert for my husband ‘s birthday.
Amazing customer service however, when I made my reservations, I specifically requested to sit near the window but apparently when I got there, no one read what i had requested. They sat me in a corner with half of the window view. The best thing in the restaurant was the servers. I give them a 10/10.
Spectacular dinner! We did the tasting menu and every plate that came out was amazing. The plantain soup was one of the stars in our opinion. Definitely coming back.
This was our first time dining at Tuyo. The food was spectacular, service impecable and atmosphere very romantic. We would definitely come here again. It’s a great place for a special occasion.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Service and food quality were awesome!!!!
