·Dined on January 14, 2018

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.

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!

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.

I came to vida for Sunday brunch. They charge $59 per person and an additional $25 for bottomless mimosas. It is served buffet style. Overall, it is definitely not worth anywhere near $59 per person. Although there is shrimp cocktail and sushi available (which I would assume is why they are charging so much) the selection of food was sub par and lacking in flavor. I guess for the guests of the hotel it gets the job done but I would definitely not return regardless of whether or not I was staying there.

I come here whenever I'm in Miami. Been here at least 3 times, specifically for the half jerk chicken! It's absolutely delicious! This time we split the lobster artichoke dip, which was amazing! I've never had a bad meal & the service is top notch. Great wines & bread basket is also terrific. You can't go wrong. Maybe a little pricey, but worth every penny.

I was visiting from out of town and wanted to bring my mother to special place (Fontainbleau) that she had been to 60 years earlier. I looked on the website for a restaurant there that had a variety of foods and we shoes Vida because of the lamb. The hotel was nice, parking was fine and the restaurant was clean, but those were the highlights of the evening. The service was below average, the food was OK and the price was high. I was especially ticked when the "20% service charge" was added to the bill for a party of three and then there was space for "extra gratuity". There are so many good restaurants in Miami, but this isn't one of them.

I loved vida! It was my boyfriends 30th birthday, and it was a pleasant surprise when they brought him out a cheesecake slice with strawberries for his big day! Ryan, the manager, was also very friendly and accommodating! We had a slight problem with one of our orders, but Ryan handled it right away! Would recommend to others for a nice group dinner! Especially if you're trying to beat the line at club Liv! :)

We had a 2-day escape mini-vacation to Miami. Thoroughly enjoyed our delicious meal at Vida. The food was creatively prepared, beautifully presented and served, and delicious. If we had any disappointments it was in the wine list for available reds by the glass--way too limited! Do recommend this restaurant.

I feel $450.00 is a little too much for a lunch. There was 8 of us, but it was not our cup of tea price wise. The food was good, the service was excellent, but i don't feel it was worth what it cost. We did not order drinks. Only two coffees and two ice teas.

Food and staff were fine. But the man loudly complaining about the shape his chicken was cut was a distraction... Too bad it didn't distract from the "boisterous" group of adults that had been over served.
Add in the two miniature yorkies that the owner claimed were Service Dogs and where seated at the table (when they weren't on the floor licking themselves)...
There was one other quiet couple besides ourselves. It was weird to be creeped out and disapointed in an almost empty restaurant at 7:30 pm.

I found this place 2 years ago while visiting Miami. I had the rotisserie jerk chicken. It was so delicious, that I make sure to stop in whenever Im in town. The service is always top- notch & the wine list & cocktail menu also terrific. But that chicken dish is amazing! Even the vegetables are delicious. As long as it's there, I'll keep going back!

This brunch was very overpriced for mediocre food. The dessert bar had some interesting items, but the main dishes prepared were sub-par. The lamb chops were overcooked and the only choice meat offered was brisket. It was a $120 brunch for two that could have easily been purchased for $60 somewhere else.

Vida was a great restaurant for our family of five. It was casual and had such a variety of entrees for our family. The beef tenderloin for dinner was outstanding. The cheese pizza for my son also great. We really tried a lot of the menu as it's the only restaurant we visited at fountainbleu Hotel for three days. Mahi was very good. Caesar salad excellent. My kids loved the matzoh ball soup as a starter. Servers all great and very friendly.
