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

food was wonderful, but some portions real small with no side dishes, and sides can be small as well, but overall nice experience

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.

The floor manager gave us super special treatment we felt like VIP. All the food we received was beyond amazing. And all of the staff was so friendly and smiled at us every time they came by

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)

We were at a table in the back room of the restaurant, when a manager, in a very inelegant and enormous arrogance, disrespectfully demanded our departure without explaining any reason. We are regular customers of Zuma on all our trips to Miami and also to other locations around the world. The event corroborates with the perception of my friends living in Miami that some professionals who work in this restaurant do not have the minimum posture and education expected for a world-famous restaurant. The people’s that stay with me are very influential people. Zuma's image is really scratched.

Zuma lost its shine at least this time. I was a huge fan of the restaurant but it clearly lost quality.

King crab was good, not great. Other dishes were very good. Loud ambiance, overpriced, long in the trendy tooth. Convenient if you re downtown which is the main reason I return when I have a tight schedule...would otherwise go elsewhere.
