    We went for the Thanksgiving dinner -and it didn’t disappoint! The selections were many and very creative on the take of a traditional Thanksgiving menu. From fresh seafood,ham, prime rib and turkey-there was plenty to choose from. We loved the deserts- and the options that were offered-so many varieties to have. The staff worked hard and were very helpful with clearing plates- providing beverages and just being friendly. We have come for the Sunday Brunch-but we will be back every Thanksgiving for this dinner. I highly recommend Vida.

    The food was mediocre. and poor variety. By the time we got to dinner at 6:15PM they run out of prawns, had only medium shrimp. Oysters were so tiny, you could hardly scrape them from the shell. Meat selections was turkey and ham, turkey was dry and ham - probably store bought. One would expect at least prime rib or roast, but not there. $89 p/p plus tax an gratuity didn't even include regular American coffee, for which they charged $7 a cup. The experience was totally not worth it.

    Thanksgiving dinner. Good but not outstanding for the prize. Water and coffee not included. Drinks were good. Seafood was excellent, side orders good. Turkey was so-so. Ham great. Overpriced but nice.

    We made our reservation for Vida’s thanksgiving, after dining there during our stay at the Fontainebleau last Thanksgiving (2020). This time was vastly different and it is no longer a draw. My husband and I dined with our 3 and 4 year olds, their meals were discounted, and the dinner was a hefty prix fixe. The family style Turkey / sides portions for 4 were literally the size for one adult. I could hold the 3 sides in the palm of my hand. All 4 of us left hungry and dissatisfied. After our experience last year (an actual feast), we had planned to make the Fontainebleau our family’s thanksgiving weekend stay tradition. After this holiday, I do not think we will return.

    Went for the thanksgiving dinner special, being from the midwest the “family style” was not what we expected. Food was cold, and felt very Cafeteria. For 2 kids 2 adults it was $300, yet felt like a $50 meal. Never again.

    Very disappointed. We went here for thanksgiving. The food was very tasty. However, we (a table of 4) watched the table next to us (a table of 2) get the same amount of food. There was barely enough to get a decent meal out of a 65$ a head thanksgiving dinner. My parents didn't say anything but were quite obviously disappointed when they thought we picked an upscale place to have dinner as they don't go out much.

    Very much enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal at Vida. The food was awesome especially the mashed potatoes. Turkey, dressing, etc. all cooked to perfection. Wow. British couple next to us were having their first “thanksgiving” and complained the whole time about the food. I guess it just didn’t appeal to their taste! Oh well. Great job by the staff!

    Walking passed Vida to go to the pool, their Thanksgiving menu automatically got my attention. We were supposed to check out Wednesday before Thanksgiving, but once we decided to extend our trip, coming here for Thanksgiving dinner was a no brainer! I wish we could come here every year for Thanksgiving, everything was beyond exceptional. The staff was so wonderful and the food exceeded my expectations. Everyone was so kind and attentive, coming over to ask how everything is multiple times and if they could bring us anything more. Towards the end of the meal, I had asked for an additional corn bread muffin to go, and the server brought me a whole plate! Such a small gesture, but so kind! Would love to come back again.

    Service was fair. Started with one waitress and she never came back and then another waitress showed up but she never told us until I asked where our waitress was that she was just helping her out. Biggest issue was the food. We were celebrating my mother’s birthday. I ordered Maine lobster wedge salad. The lobster was cut up so small I had to search for it in the salad. Same with the apple and avocado. Mainly lettuce and little else. I ordered the rotisserie chicken with roasted vegetables to go. Not till I got home and opened it up did I see that it was so burnt it was inedible. I asked if they did something to celebrate birthdays. My mom asked for dessert menu. We didn’t get it and instead they brought a chocolate cake with a candle which would have been ok but you could see it was still not completely defrosted. Never asked if we wanted coffee or tea. Tip was automatically added to the bill at 18% so no incentive to provide good service. Parking if ticket is validated was $16.00 for 2 hrs a little expensive. My mom enjoyed her pizza and I didn’t want to complain since it was her birthday. However when I saw the burnt chicken that was inedible I called and spoke to a manager. His response prompted me to write this review and warn people not to bother going there. “You have to bring the chicken to the restaurant for me to see it. How do we know that’s how it really is? You took it as take out and now it’s a few hours later.” REALLY bring the chicken back and pay another $16.00 to park the car??? So he insulted me, insinuated that I was lying and basically said there was nothing he could do. I’ve never been to a restaurant where they don’t try to make things right for the customer. Paid 100.00 for crappy salad, pizza, rotisserie chicken and chocolate cake. FOOD NOT WORTH THE PRICE.

    Too much salt! The quinoa salad was inedible due to the high salt level. Same with the mashed potatoes. Everything was high over salted. We had to leave much of the meal uneaten due to the salt.

    Great restaurant! We visited after the new year with our 4 kids. We were staying in a neighboring hotel. The whole hotel seems a bit too Vegas for us but are always looking for family friendly restaurants with quality food when in Miami Beach. We had a 6p rsvp and the restaurant was pretty slow. The staff were very friendly and they had a very reasonably priced kids menu! Great food and service. Would visit again when in the area.

    I must say, Mike is awesome!! He took very good care of us when we were there each time. He was on top of his game and I asked for him each day I ate there...which was almost every morning. The breakfast buffet is delicious!! We ate the rotisserie chicken for dinner twice. If I ever come back to Fontainebleau, it is my place of choice for dining.
