The only thing keeping our fabulous evening at Zuma from being all-star was the argumentative hostess. It was a struggle to be seated and initially to be waited upon, but after that the food and service was top drawer. We ordered omakase (which I highly recommend) and we received course after course of beautiful, unusual, perfectly-prepared and wonderful tasty offerings. The food was creative and perfectly seasoned and prepared. The front of the house needs some work, but hang in there, the dinner will be well worth it!

The ambience and food was excellent as always, but the service was rushed. They brought the check without us asking for it and later the manager came to ask us to sit at the bar because they had another reservation waiting. This was a business dinner and definitely Not what you expect after how much we spent there. Specially because I have referred the restaurant for many business lunch/dinners for large groups. An establishment that values its customers would have handled totally different. Maybe invite for Digestifs at the bar.

Zuma used to be my favorite restaurant in Miami, but the last few times we noticed the overall quality of the experience has been declining. It’s not what it used to be. The lychee martini was changed & made too sweet. The mushroom hot pot of rice used to have optional truffle shavings, which are standard to rack up to the price to $81! A pot of rice costs $81! It’s a little ridiculous. We ordered a prawn that never came. The manager was apologetic & very nice, but the place is not the same. Not coming back anytime soon. Plus, the valet at the Epic is inefficient & expensive.

Every single course was outstanding. We had several shareable plates including sashimi, tartare, meat courses and dessert. Without drinks, the bill would have been about $500. I highly recommend this restaurant if in the area and if in the mood to splurge.

Decided to do the Omakaze tasting and was amazed not only with the presentation and service but the quality of the food. I felt like I was in a dream “food coma “. One of the best tastings ever, anywhere!

Great food and ambiance. It’s better to arrive before 10:00 pm. After that there’s not much time to check the menu because the kitchen is about to close.

It was was a good experience. However, I expected more. It was quite loud and difficult to have a conversation. The food was good, but not unique. The presentation was excellent. The cocktails were exquisite. Overall, I would go again if invited. It would not be my first choice of restaurants.

We had multiple issues with the service but the food was good. After a number experiences at Omakase-style restaurants this one was a let down tonight. The server was nice but made errors with our order, and we were charged for items even though we didn’t order them. We ordered tempura shrimp and received sushi roll shrimp instead. We wanted one order of a sea bass dish but received and were charged for two. At Zuma’s price point, I expect pristine service, and we did not receive that tonight.
