There were 5 of us going in on a Monday night for Miami spice which is a 3 course meal for a special of $39. The food was good considering the $39 special. The service was very mediocre most likely because of the $39 menu we were there for lol. We bought wine which I thought would make the server kinder but no we were still too young and not a good enough table for him to be content . I’m in the business so I get it but he could have tried to hide his sour face a little more. He included his tip so what was the issue? Not sure.

Very noisy and we didn’t like the table we were placed in, in the middle of the aisle with people and waiters passing around. Disappointing for the price we paid.

Always a great time! Everything is delicious. Just be cautious to check your bill when management insists on you trying something, with compliments of the house. Although we did enjoy a dessert called "Bamboo" they sent us, we later realized they charged us for it. Not a big deal, but it wasn't a nice surprise. Other than that, all good! Love it

Wonderful dining experience. Food was good as expected though I would have preferred to have been seated a little further into the restaurant, almost felt like I was sitting in the hallway. My birthday is Sunday and each of the servers and waitstaff told me happy birthday. Even as I left the restaurant, the hostess told me to have a good birthday on Sunday. The attention to detail was unlike anything else.

Amazing! Zuma never disappoints. Such creative and delicious. A group of friends and I went before the Janet Jackson concert and everything was perfect, from the food, to the environment, to the excellent service. We all did the Miami Spice menu, but also ordered a few things off the regular menu - the king crab was to die for!! I would go back just for that!

This place earns its cache and more! Fantastic food, quality is amazing! Service is impeccable - from the cool look make host to the hostess desk, to our server; all committed professionals! What a pleasure to go out and have the evening run like a well choreographed ballet. Bravo Zuma, you have been doing it for years and still can ‘wow’ today!

Food was decent, go to Nobu if you want the best. Server very rude. Tip automatically included for a four top, so the server could care less about taking care of the table, he was getting paid either way.

Very rude welcome, offering us a table at the entrance where we could not even seat. The reason was: “when you book with open table, you have to take the first available table »! We had to wait 30 minutes to get an acceptable table. We will never come back. In addition the valet parking at 17$ is not advisable.

Zuma is always amazing - I just wish that when you reserve a table online they would have an option of choosing whether to sit inside or outside. We made a reservation and wanted to sit inside and had to wait an additional 45 min for an indoor table. Please add the option on Opentable, I've seen other restaurants with the option. I would like to sit down at the exact time of reservation.

Fantastic food as always. We got the worst table outdoors away from everyone which was bad. But got the chance to eat the desert indoors. Had to wait 30 minutes to get our table which was irritating. But overall great experience.
