The food was amazing as always, however I personally think that the interior could use a bit of updating.

Food was good but good is not what I expect when paying this much. It‘s nothing special and is to expensive. Service and ambience was great.

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.

enjoyed it very much. sound/music level perfect and staff attentive. We just ended up paying for an extra entrée because server got confused as three of us and got four entrees; one of us had changed his mind and ordered shrimp but all three of us still got our original Sea Bass as well. so check was larger than expected.

Zuma has become my favorite restaurant in Miami! We always get something different and each dish exceeds expectations!! I am convinced there is not a bad dish on the menu.

I went for business and with reservation they made me wait a long time.
Service was really slow I had to ask the server several times what was going on that the food was taking so long.

Great food, excellent service from the staff. However they served 5 dishes at the same time, which was overwhelming. The noise level is very high in a densely packed area. I love going to Zuma and will return

Been here a lot of times for Dinner, I wasn't impressed by the brunch. If you don't drink champagne, it's kind of expensive for a brunch. The additional items (not included in brunch price) like the rib eye, were not as good as the dinner one.

As always the food and service are exceptional. Music is always very cool too. For those not liking the music to high, think twice. The combination of the different spices and ingredients they use, create a phenomenal gastronomical experience.
I love it!

Good food and prompt food service, however our experience started off poorly. Even with an Open Table reservation, we got seated in the bar area at a very small table that was also low to the ground. It was cramped and uncomfortable. To our right was the main dining room with PLENTY of tables. We asked to be moved (especially because we had a reservation). The waitress said it would be no problem, but then she never followed up, and we sat at the cramped table with no service for another 10 min. We were not happy. Finally, after we complained, the manager moved us to a table in their lounge area and brought up edamame on the house. But then they charged us for the complementary appetizer on our bill! An overall disappointing experience.

Un hermoso lugar en el dontown de Miami, la comida es muy buena y la sirven rapido. Esta muy bien ambientado. El unico punto debil que le encontre, y solo por mencionar algo no del todo bueno, es el volumen ambiental. Muy alto. Pero se come taaaan bien que aunque estuviese tocando Metallica en vivo, diria que es un lugar genial (si, con Metallica seria mejor)
