The food was good bu not extraordinary but the price was fair. Good attention but sometimes kind of overwhelming, I will go again to give a second chance. The ambiance is more for a business meeting than a date.

Food was absolutely amazing. The broiled lobster was the highlight of the night but the wagyu gyosa and the sushis were also spectacular. It was my wife’s birthday and this was the perfect place to celebrate. You do need to have a thick wallet or a strong heart or both when the bill comes.

ZUMA is clearly one of Miami´s finest places. The food is excellent, and so is the "vibe". Sushi is truly great and the korean bbq is splendid. A very comprehensive and interesting sake list.

THis is the one place I can not miss when in MIami. Absolutely love it.

Very great restaurant. We got there 15 minutes late and I called previously, but our table wasn’t ready for another 20 minutes after we got there which is fine since we were waiting at the bar.

The waitress had a really bad attitude at first until we started ordering expensive items on the menu (as soon as we did she became muchhhh nicer). She didn’t know much about special items, I highly suggest learn more about special items like Wagyu beef (at 60$ an oz she should be able to answer our questions).

The food was excellent as usual, I love to go to Zuma. Service was not as good as it use to be, it’s the second time I go and I get a bad service. After getting the tab ($1,100 for 4 people) she told us that we should tip her more than the 18% since she has to split with the other staff. If she wouldn’t have said anything she would’ve got more, but the fact that she asked for a higher tip before we even paid was a big turn off. We believe in sharing between busboys and wait staff since they are the ones doing the hard work. We had to ask her 2-3 times to refill our glasses of wine and water.

Overall, the vibe is super fun, the food is AMAZING and definitely worth the price however the waiters need to stop the attitude and start working on the service a little bit harder.

Good service, good food, however we where seated next to the entrance of the restaurant - something like the waiting area (not good) and though food was very good I think we over paid.

Service seemed stressed, talking about the menu items very fast. Not an intimate experience for us.
Ambiance does not provide a special setting, rather cold and generic
Food was excellent and witty. Loved every bite.

Excellent food, good service but not great. They bring the food as each plate becomes ready. An order of a side dish of grilled asparagus came ten minutes after we had finished everything else. I prefer to eat my main dish along with my side dishes at the same time. I would recommend it for a one time experience, but I doubt I'll go back.
