My skirt steak was so tough, I'm sure this was not grass-fed ethically treated beef. i have been here several times and have never been content with their food. The ambiance, staff, and overall experience is great, but not the food.

Upper Buena Vista has made their own village and Vista restaurant is the core of it. We decided to come here to see what this was about. We came during the day on a Sunday. It has a great organic feel to it with several pop up shops, coffee shop, and the Vista restaurant; all they need is a ceramic paint store to keep us here for hours. Food at Vista was great with a great selection, they have creative drinks and pride themselves as Farm to Table. Will definitely go again; possibly at night to experience the top floor and view. (they mentioned Sunday the top floor is closed)

Their site states that all wait staff wear masks, but that is simply not true. Maybe 50% do. And our waiter (Karim B) was awful - unhelpful, bordering on rude, and quite inattentive. We had to flag down other staff members multiple times as he was too busy chatting up the bar crew than attend to our needs (simple needs at that - like ordering our meal, ordering dessert, which we gave up on, and getting the check.) We have eaten here a few times prior - not sure I would go back again.

A warning: parking is tough on the street. Hostess kept saying they had valet “at the blue roof” outside but the only blue roof I saw was a blue awning for the mechanic next door.

Ambience is super cute.

Serious lack of attention by waitress. Not sure if it’s covid related or not. Trying to be more forgiving but service was just very poor. Plus, there’s an 18% gratuity automatically added to the bill.

Food was fine. Drinks were fine.

Great atmosphere for any occasion. So many great options at reasonable prices. The only down fall was the parking was very limited around the area which made it hard to find a spot.

My husband I had brunch at Vista and it was a great experience. Every staff member we encountered was nice and helpful. The manager, Arnaud, was welcoming and recommended the best cocktails. Food was served quickly and it was delicious and great quality. We even got to try some delicious Mezcal, compliments of Arnaud. It's small details like this that really make the visit even more pleasant and makes us want to go again. We are already planning our next visit!

The best way I can describe my experience is just to say I do not recommend you spend your money here. It’s in a great location (which kept me coming back) but it has been disappointing every time. The food is low quality with a random sprinkle of truffle oil or expensive cheese to make you think it’s nice. We ordered grilled pears with balsamic and grilled peaches with no balsamic arrived in its place for some reason. The wait staff hovers to get you out of their but are otherwise inattentive. Every dollar I have spent there has been a disappointment. Should have just gone to one of the other cute spots in Upper Buena Vista.

It’s disappointing to get bagged mixed greens and a couple canned artichokes for $17.

Don’t go here. There are MUCH better places nearby.

The food here was stellar and the place is so relaxed and cute. Hanging plants all over and a Mediterranean style aesthetic. The specialty cocktails are some of the best I’ve experienced in Miami in a while, you don’t often see a beverage list with all strong choices, they taste delicious and are crafted elegantly. Great menu choices for everyone. We took our nieces and nephews and everyone was beyond happy with their food. My boyfriend was very impressed with the brisket pappardelle, it was prepared expertly and al dente, he was surprised at the generous amount of brisket for the price. My fiocchi di pera was in a light and buttery sage sauce and despite being full I could not stop eating till the plate was clean. Also highly encourage trying the artichokes, they are so so flavorful. My server Dayneris and really all of the staff was very sweet and accommodating. Definitely recommend. Thank you Vista!

I selected Vistas for a birthday dinner with a friend on Sunday. The waitress that was a sign to our table was not in a very good mood. Additionally, I ordered a specific bottle of Chardonnay however was charged for another and yes you guessed it… It was more expensive. I ordered a beautiful charcuterie board that was absolutely stunning however it wasn’t the one that was initially ordered and again she upgraded it without asking. She was then off of her shift however she never said goodbye that someone else was going to come in and take over and it left us kind of waiting for service for longer than necessary. The manager approached the table at one point when I requested to see him and we didn’t get too far with him either. I will go back. And the reason I’ll go back is because I love the music and I really like the food.

I'm giving a 3 star becuase the service was not good. The server seemed distracted and not friendly. The supporting staff was better .Also the courtyard is extremely hot.I did ask to sit outside becuase I saw fans but the fans blow hot air and no breeze.Maybe the restaurant should invest in a better outside cooling system. The food was delicious and drinks on point.

Excellent service and the food was delicious. Both the burrata and grilled peach salad had too much greens ratio but still fresh and yummy. Absolutely loved the Brisket Parpadelle, the pasta cooked perfectly. Finished with the crime brûlée which was slightly eggy but still tasty.
Fresh, inventive cocktails and a great happy hour menu. Moderate noise level with a very sexy organic decor. Overall, enjoyed my visit and definitely will be back.

I got the chicken palliard and my boyfriend got the vista burger. The food was tasty and fresh. Nothing was greasy. I also got a cocktail which was very strong and delicious. Our waitress was attentive and sweet. Overall the establishment was beautiful and spacious. It was a major plus that the tables weren’t squished together.
