    A good experience. We were disappointed that outdoor seating was unavailable for the night, but otherwise a good experience. Food was high quality and tasty. A bit on the pricey side.

    We had the most amazing dinner here for our first night in Miami. We were celebrating our honeymoon and Danilo and all members of staff made us feel so special! The food was delicious, the drinks were perfect and the atmosphere and view were stunning. Thank you for such a wonderful evening!

    Beautiful ambience but subpar food. I ordered the goat cheese salad with steak; the steak was ice cold. I sent it back and the replacement was warm but my salad was missing half the ingredients- no pecans, pears and instead it had onions and cucumbers! I wish I caught all this but by this point it was late and I was hungry. 37 bucks for that salad! We also ordered the salt & pepper misto appetizer. It was yummy but the portion was extremely small. Not worth 27 bucks. 200 bucks for 2 people poorly spent. Basically you’re paying for the rent of the restaurant, not the food. Our waiter was very lovely though, great service.

    Overrated restaurant. The website boasted amazing views but the view was terrible unless you were standing up. The menu was very limited and not appealing at all. My friends and I decided to go somewhere else for dinner. Prior to that the waitress had asked if we wanted still or sparkling water. I asked for still buy didn’t realize that meant a whole bottle, which cost $13!!! Ridiculous! When we got the check they had already added a gratuity!! Utterly ridiculous and should not be allowed. Very disappointed!!

    Food was the highlight of the night. Really delicious and creative. Pricing is astronomical though (and I'm from New York). $125 for surf and turf. $70 for a steak. crazy. would up having a tasty Moroccan chicken dish and the conch fritters as an app were crispy and great.

    Food was expensive and horrible. My lobster was so tough it was unedible I just left it on the plate, and my girlfriend’s fish had very little taste to it. And the prices are outrageous. Never again. You all can have fin there. And the view is nothing special anyway.

    Everything was great the only cretic I have is that one of the hotel guest was dumping out their bag over the balcony and I was able to see debris falling from up top. And for my bill being 500 I feel that should have never happened

    A decent spot, but won't return. Requested an outdoor seat, but the view was rather limited. The dinner menu did not boast a lot of options and I didn't feel the price was justified across the board for our dining experience. Service was good initially then slowed as our night continued on. Had to try the place, but wouldn't recommend it to others.

    We booked a table on 4th of July. We appreciated the fact that our table was kept for us with 15 min late arrival. The food was awful. It's hard to believe that in one hotel there are such a big contrast in the quality of the food (Zuma-Area 31). It's hard to believe that such an amazing looking restaurant can serve such a terrible food. The octopus was small and unattractive, fish (snapper) was dry, greasy and tiny. As far as a house salad - you can buy a better salad at MC Donald's. Tuna was very tiny as well. The restaurant used a sauce for the fish from a tube you can buy at any grocery store. For 200$ spent on 2 appetizers, a house salad and a fish plate dinner we left hungry and disappointed. Thanks God for a wonderful view at least.

    Waiter was polite but a bit pushy for higher priced items I attempted to order salmon, we were told it was not available and were told they would substitute sea bass. BUT We were NOT TOLD about an up-charge for sea bass. I normally tip 20%, but they added 18% automatically for just 3 people. 2 adults and 1 child. So, I tipped 18%. Food was good but not worth $280.

    The city view is amazing! Worth it! You can see all the city. The menu is really short not so much options to select! Is a little expensive comparing with similar places. We order the octopus, was amazing with a crunchy touch and soft inside, great choice, the Tuna as starter was ok, is a very small plate; we also ordered the risotto with shrimp, is a good amount of risotto with three shrimps. Was very good..

    Overall it was a beautiful restaurant with great views. I had a nice birthday dinner with friends. The food was decent, we had an appetizer with really big shrimp. The portion sizes for the meals were varied. The lobster was huge, but salmon and snapper portions were small. The staff was very nice and helpful. Good for a nice date or special event.

    One of the worst dining experiences in my life. Server didn’t explain the details of the dish I ended up ordering which I had to return because it had pork sausage and I am pescatarian. He never offered a complimentary dessert to make it up for the inconvenience this has caused. The dishes are overpriced too for the quality of food which is another reason why I would never come back here. The place looked very average for a $50 and above prices. So overall this dining experience was a complete disappointment.

    Maine Lobster was perfect. A lot of lobster with great sauce. Caesar salad was great too - very fresh salad. First time dining in downtown Miami. I can say, since that it is a hotel - there were screaming children in the restaurant. I get it’s a hotel but it was slightly annoying. Other than that, great service/drinks/food.
