Zuma has been around a long time now.
Always packed, layout is odd, service is
spotty and if you’re inside the noise is
bothersome. The food was good, however,
they need a refresh. The cache it had when it opened is not there anymore.

The experience of Seasonal Menu is amazing. Incredible food in a very energetic ambiance. Service is excellent and staff is cordial. The price, however, is a bit over the edge. USD 610 for a 2-persons dinner is really good expensive considering we had 2 glasses (not bottles) of wine.

Awesome meal. Waiter pushed family style and it was a good call to try all of the different dishes. The drinks were great, though a little small. Lychee martinis! Yum. And the sparkling sake was delicious. We really enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere. We started with one waiter. He was great. Then they switched us to another waiter, who was totally MIA. We asked to be switched back to the first waiter and then the service got back on track. I would definitely go back to Zuma when I'm back in Miami.

Horrible service. We made reservations a month ago and we were not given a table inside and we were sat in an outside patio with a. Horrible view behind the restaurant with no music. They told us that OpenTable reservations were not final and that we needed to call to confirm our table. Hostess was extreme rude. What a shame.

This was our second time dining at Zuma and the food was better than ever. We sat outside which greatly improved our overall experience from last time when we were seated near the bar. Our server was on point and attentive, the manager friendly and aware and Yoshi was a delight. We can’t rave about this place enough!

Overcharge dispute. Order forgotten ate the calamari as a dessert. For a party of four, automatic 20% gratitude was charged. Kept bringing soft drinks as refill without asking, then charge each refill. Very very misleading. Check your bill before you pay.

To pay for valet parking is an insult especially waiting 15 to 20 minutes to have vehicle retrieved.

Do not go to this restaurant. The people that work here are amazingly rude. From the moment we checked in all the hostesses were unfriendly and snooty. They told us our table was not ready and they had no idea when it would be ready. We waited 1 hour past our reservation for our table. They told us that we would be in the main dining room. But after waiting for over an hour even with our reservation they told us that we would no longer have a table in the main dining room. They sat us at the lounge area which had the most uncomfortable chairs. We asked them to Comp us one of our meals since they screwed up our reservation so badly. The manager actually said that they would not do that and if we did not pay they would call the police. We were in shock at how incredibly rude they were. I will also say that while we waited for our reservation we went to get a drink at the bar. The bar tender let us wait 15 minutes before serving us and did not even acknowledge that he would get to us. Unbelievably bad service.
I just can’t reiterate enough that you should not go here. The food was nothing special as well and expensive.

The food is too expensive and wasn’t something special. You could eat much better in other restaurants in Miami and it was so noisy that we couldn’t even talk to each other. Not a good place to eat and enjoy the evening

Our server was brilliant.
Food wasn’t as good as we’ve had in other Zuma’s.
We were seated outside so lacked a bit of atmosphere. Was better inside.

Waiters was rude and aggressive, they push everybody in their way without warning. I was hit in my head few times by a waiter serving people next to me. I was doing reservation ahead for a table and they sat me down on the sushi bar. The place is too noisy with e really bad lighting that ruins the atmosphere

The food continues to be excellent but the tables near the bar are way too noise, hard to keep a conversation.
Drinks were not good at all, done in a rush, Mojito didn't even have mint, caipiroska made with lemon juice
Good service

I have been to Zuma many times since opening. The service was very poor the night we visited.
Also the food was good but for the prices that are charged, I find that there are other similar venues now which offer more value. The noise level was so loud, I could hardly hear my dining companions. This was not one of the better experiences I have had there
