We had a group of 11 for dinner at 8:45 PM on Saturday night. The restaurant was surprisingly not very busy - only 2-3 more tables in the whole place. We did not leave until 11:30 PM - the service was THAT slow. Our waiter came by very few times and it took a VERY long time for him to come back. Our drinks took about 30 minutes to arrive and it was at least an hour before we got our food because he didn't take our order until about 35 minutes after being seated. However, the food was very good and the rest of the service was decent - runners brought our food and bussers refilled our water and cleared our dishes. Would only recommend if you have hours for dinner and want to check out the Fontainebleau as there are many other restaurants in South Beach with great food and much better service.
Great place to dine, easy to make reservations, great service, our waiter was awesome and very attentive and accommodating of substitution requests. He also asked if anyone at the table had any food allergies which took me by surprise because both my children have allergies to different nuts and it was very thoughtful of management to take that into consideration to ask it’s patrons. Food was fantastic they even served us dinner from the sushi restaurant Blade. It’s fantastic that they are able to serve dinner from two different restaurants simultaneously. Love this place, it’s our third time dining there. We will always go to eat at Vida whenever we are vacationing in Miami. Highly recommended!

Vida è un ristorante strepitoso. Ad iniziare dal servizi eccellente e a finire con una cucina davvero sopraffina. Lo consiglio vivamente . Direi che questo è un posto immancabile se venite a SoBe.

Amazing Christmas brunch.
We enjoyed one of the best brunches at Vida! I have enjoyed some amazing brunches in Dubai and this was right up there. The unlimited mimosas were flowing and the staff were very attentive. The short ribs were tender, the omelette was fluffy and the bacon was cooked just right. There was also sushi, salmon and shrimp cocktail! There was a bit of everything and it was all cooked to perfection. We also tried a Bloody Mary that had ginger and wasabi that was refreshing. Overall it was one of the best brunches I have had the pleasure to enjoy!
We stopped by when we arrived to the hotel. Had a wonderful Cobb salad & Sushi from nearby Blade. Awesome fresh ingredients, Sushi was delicious, fresh fish Salmon and Tuna... A special thank to the GM for making a take out order the next afternoon easy and effortless .. Top notch🌟
Vida-Fontainebleau Miami Beach was amazing! Juan was our server and he made the experience top quality and the best ever! He was very detailed and precise! Customer service levels were above and beyond! Food was delicious, creative, fresh, and variety was of plenty! I would highly recommend Vida to everyone visiting Miami and staying at the Fontainebleau.
