I had a good experience, but I ordered a glass of wine that was $12 in the menu, and they said they don’t have it. But I asked if they have the same region, but different brand and they brought me a glass of wine that coast $40 without taxes and nobody told me that one glass is $40.

It was my birthday lunch, I requested outside and it was obvious they were closing that area down and in fact the whole place ! I was told it’s too hot outside .... We had a 2pm reservation and the kitchen stopped at 3 . No soy sauce ?! No iced coffee !! Checked dropped without offering dessert .. no mention of happy birthday like many times before .. the place was dead and our waitress wanted to leave , the only thing that saved the day was the amazing wine and Sommelier chick , Seresin Sauvignon blanc was fantastic from New Zealand... for $400 it was awful and felt like a rip off, as usual 45 min wait for valet and multiple returns to get the validations to work... not rushing back there anytime soon

We asked for a table in the terrace, they said no because only half was open, 15 mins later they opened that side, and started to use it
Our server forgot 2 plates, the order was not the ideal one

We had Raymond as our server and he was just the absolute best. As we are visiting from Chicago, he made sure we understood everything on the menu and gave us great recommendations. The food was incredible and the dessert that followed was even better. The green tea banana cake was to die for! Definitely coming back the next time we’re in Miami!

Service was slow, we got orders of another table and they got ours...
Then 18% tip was included - meaning no incentive for servers to outperform...
Desert platter is basically a $1 soufflé and some unripe fruits. ($20 per person🤦🏻‍♂️).
Strong brand weak performance.

The vibe was nice, the food was great, although they forgot to bring out my appetizer. By the time I realized everyone had gotten their entree’s, I advised the waiter that I had not received my appetizer but he told me the kitchen was already closed. I was really looking forward to trying Tiger Prawn Tempura

I was underwhelmed to say the least. The best part was the desert. For $369 for two people I was expecting an experience and what I got was an okay meal. Management addressed the food disappointments immediately, which was appreciated and comped one of the deserts. I will not be rushing back.

What an incredible experience! Best traditional sushi in Miami!
Having been to Japan over 8 times I appreciate incredible cuts and everything from beginning to end was quality.
Service was amazing, not to mention the venue (of course it’s Versace mansion)
Not cheap but its well priced considering what you get.
If you love sushi and want an experience you must come here!

I have been to Zuma many times in the past, but its been about one year after my last visit. I must say that I was a bit disappointed, as it seems to me that this once outstanding restaurant is losing its stars.

This is located in TheEpic hotel. Been here several times and it never disappoints. The food is always great and always with a different spin on a variety of flavors. The wine is excellent and the service is impeccable. Expect to pay for what you get here.
Worth the trip! Really cool location with luxury yachts right outside. We love Zuma!

A fabulous experience but pricey. A good special occasion/ celebration spot but not for everyday dining. Great vibe, lovely setting, wonderful flavors and presentation, and good service. The plates/ portions are somewhat small so you can easily maintain your slender waistline- lol. They automatically tack on an 18% gratuity. The server politely lets you know that he shares that gratuity with others- " in case you'd like to add an additional amount just for him" ;-)

Made a reservation and when I got there they sat us in the bar lounge area. It was very busy so we didn’t ask to be moved but then they sat parties with small children, babies and big parties in an area that wasn’t really big enough and was more loungy. It differently changed the atmosphere and mood of a night out. This is t really a family style restaurant and they should have sat them in the main dining room.

They resting on their past laurels.
Food was terrible.
Robata was not a real BBQ.
Makato in Bal Harbour is a much better option for Asian fusion food.

After some seating snafus which were quickly resolved, we were seated at a table in the bar area with water views. Our waiter Ray was superb. He had a real passion for his job and knowledge of the menu. I was leaning towards the Omakasa menu and he advised we choose the mid level tasting menu. It did not disappoint!!! We are foodies from NYC and have done chef tastings by chefs Nobu and Morimoto amongst others. This was better. Highlights included pork belly, scallop, cod, steak and sweet corn. Sushi Sashimi was fresh and excellent. The BFT was delicious and every dish had beautiful presentation. It was my Bday and an extra course of grilled lobster tail was “gifted”. It was amazing. Desert course was a plate of fruits, sorbets, molten lava cake, custard .... also amazing. Dinner for two, drinks, tax gratuity was $500. Believe it or not, for the quality and quantity, it was a great value. Great job Zuma !!

Small, uncomfortable table, shoved into a crowded area. Loud, noisy, overpriced for the experience. Portion size is very small.
