It was wonderful as always. Chef Victor and the Culinary Arts students cook a wonderful lunch, and it is a beautiful romantic evening out, with a wonderful view of Miami's Port and the bay.

This is by far the best customer service experience I’ve ever had in Miami. The hostess, the manager and waiters are such a great people service oriented.

Now the food is not really amazing... I ordered steak, not really flavorful or tender, poor quality sides and not right cooked.

The lamb wasn’t a great experience either, really overpriced for such a mix of non spirit seasoned meat.

From the moment the elevator door opened we knew we were in for a treat! Great service, great view, great ambiance, great food! We had the artichoke soup which was excellent, and the snapper ceviche was also fantastic, for entrees we had the halibut & the lamb, both outstanding, finished off the night with the beignets & the chocolate semifreddo...so yummy. Highly recommend this restaurant.

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!

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. :)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
