Absolutely amazing! The food and drinks were sooo good! Great atmosphere and service. I highly recommend this place for birthdays, business meetings or just to chill honestly. The quality of the food and drinks are reasonably priced and worth it.

We went to vista as part of the Miami Spice promotion. Other items on the menu looked tempting. The outdoor/patio surroundings were comfortable and welcoming. Presentation of the food was good. vista is not a neighborhood restaurant for us. Well worth the 11 mile drive.

We arrived late to our reservation but they sat us quickly and without issue. Our server made great recommendations after we stated dietary restrictions. We had the Branzino, Mushroom pasta, artichoke, and burrata. Everything was amazing start to finish. We were so happy with all of the dishes especially the pasta. Our server recommended a nice Chardonnay to accompany our meal and it was perfect. I appreciate the attention given to us by the staff. The server was the best and I can remember his name :(

I went to Vista to meet a friend for drinks and ended up ordering their charcuterie board for a snack. What a disappointment. One would think it would be hard to go wrong with a plate of cold cuts and cheese. But the chef didn't fail to disappoint. There were only two selections of meats...prosciutto and salami. Seriously? There was also only two selections of cheese...one of them being so dry that you needed a hose to wash it down. To add insult to injury the bread was old and stale...thank god for the hose. As for the accompaniments, a charcuterie board should include a choice of "jams" and not just the lonely honey that was offered. The spicy olives had flavor but were so desiccated that you couldn't even scrape the meat off with a knife. WTF! For the price of $21 and the reviews written about this restaurant, the expectations were a lot higher than what was actually delivered. A huge disappointment.

I am loathe to give this restaurant a second chance as I am a firm believer that if you can screw up a dish as simple to put together as a charcuterie board, then the skill and enthusiasm to create a more "involved" meal...is just not there. Once bitten...twice shy.

Nice ambiance outside surrounded by greenery, food choices however were limited. When most restaurants are offering vegan friendly options all over Miami, I was disappointed to see hardly any here. Also instead of offering existing wines at reduced prices during happy hour ,they offered special wines I wouldn't even use for cooking, for their happy hour. Unfortunately I wouldn't even go back for Happy Hour.

Vista is one of my favorites restaurants in Miami. Their inventive seasonal menus always feature fresh ingredients and beautifully plated dishes. My table ordered several appetizers including octopus and a grilled peach salad in addition to the Miami Spice menu. Everything was delicious as always - A typical night out feels like a special occasion at Vista.

Came here for happy hour. It is a beautiful ambience and a great space. They have a good happy hour menu with a lot of food options. We had the purse-strings (like a pear ravioli), cacio y pepe pizza, and sopresata pizza. The purse-strings were good, but the cacio y pepe pizza was very dry. I expected it to be more creamy with all that cheese. My friend enjoyed her flan for dessert (they light it on fire in front of you which is fun) and I had the Nutella bread pudding which was disappointing. There wasn't much chocolate or Nutella flavor to it.

The service after our initial encounter with our waiter was abysmal. The food came out fast but it took forever to get glasses of water, our plates sat empty in front of us, and it took us forever to wave down anyone to get more water, order dessert, etc. Our waiter constantly passed our table- he just didn't bother to stop and check on us and wouldn't stop when we tried to flag him down. Tables that came for proper dinner after us left before us so it wasn't a short staffing issue. He, of course, was all over getting us our bill when it was time to add tip. The whole experience took over 2 hours, and one of the Covid recommendations right now is not to spend more time in the restaurant than is needed to decrease exposure. Thanks to the poor service we were definitely down there longer than needed. They also blast the music which is against regulations- you aren't supposed to be shouting at your table mates.

PS- someone should tell them that the succulents on the table do actually need to be watered once a month. The one on our table was dying so I watered the poor thing once I finally actually got a glass of water.

We’re celebrating my daughter’s Birthday and Fiorella and her team were dedicated to give us a great experience. Personalized, courteous, respectful, caring about social distance and mask usage for the staff and customers. The cover terrace has a great ambience and ventilation. We feel safe and well treat.

This was an overall great experience. Food and ambience were excellent. Service was a bit sluggish but that might be because of understaffing as a result of the pandemic. The only disappointment was that we asked for the burrata as an appetizer but it was sold out. Speaking for my dinner companions, the skirt steak and burgers were great. The apple tart with vanilla ice cream dessert was outstanding.

I LOVE Vista, the food and ambiance. We had the avocado toast, burrata, veal milanese and octupus. Everything was wonderful, but there was a part of the octupus that was very hard to eat (very very chewy) but even so the plate was exquisite with crunchy coin potatoes and it was on top of like a bean puree. It was still great. Service wise, I felt really safe/comfortable with the new implementation of the QR code to see the manu and to pay the check so you don't have to touch anything. Excellent execution and service!

I had brunch with my family. Sunday afternoon is quite busy, entertainment is nice but loud, not the right time to go if you want to talk. Perfect time to go if you want to party! I didn’t like the consistency of the fried chicken and our waitress changed quickly my order. Very accommodating

The food was delicious. Everything was perfect and so good. I have to say, I haven't had this level of top notch service in years anywhere. There were times that we had three or four servers/people at our table for our party of five. It was really incredible! Everyone was so happy and told me I made a great call in choosing the restaurant for that night.

Impeccable service and food presented in a hip and brilliantly designed venue. We planned on an afternoon visiting the Shops of Upper Buena Vista, so naturally reserving a brunch spot at Vista made sense. It was a chilly day, so we asked to be sat inside instead of outside under the foliage-covered terrace. The waiter was knowledgeable and the prices are on par, if slightly cheaper than other areas of Miami. Kudos to the rest of the staff and designers. I shall return again.
