Please extend your red blends listing per glass sometimes you can't manage a full bottle especially if it is dinner for 2 and you're the only one drinking wine. Conundrum red blend is a great wine - crowd pleaser .... I would definately love to see this on your list for my next visit.

The food and service is impeccable. Definitely give Zuma a try. The wait staff and managers did everything they could to make sure my husband and I had a great meal. They went above and beyond to make our night special. We loved the truffle hot pot, pork belly skewer, jumbo prawn, and the uni special! We will definitely be back when we visit Miami. One of the best Japanese restaurant.

The food is good here but the pricing is absurd. The most annoying thing about this restaurant are that the Chefs in the middle of the dining room give out loud cries when they complete a task. It can come at any moment and it borders on being frightening. I would not recommend this to anyone trying to enjoy their dinner.

Big disappointment. Sushi was not as expected based on some of the reviews. We had a reservation, but when we arrived we were told that we had to be finished by 9PM because there was another reservation. That in my opinion should have been communicated to me when I made the reservation. Knowing that, I would have never booked a reservation with Zuma. Not impressed with this restaurant at all!

Zuma es quizas el mejor Restaurant de Miami. Excelente comida, muy buen ambiente, buena carta de Vinos y el local tiene una excelente vista hacia el rio y la Bahia de Miami. Lo unico que me desagrada es el Valet Parking, el cual es extremadamente demorado para recuperar los vehiculos y el costo es bastante alto para el pesimo servicio que prestan.

Nos dieron nuestra mesa 40 minutos más tarde de la hora reservada. Pasaron al menos 4 personas por delantera nuestra que llegaron bastante más tarde. Una vez sentados la comida tardó muchísimo e incluso tuvimos que quejarnos al jefe de sala.
La música a un volumen difícil de conversar y lleno de gente a reventar.
Una experiencia muy mala para el coste del restaurante.
La comida si que es muy buena.

We have chosen the premium course which was pretty good but we expected more. Too much mushrooms dishes, it definitely could be better. Beside it, the waiter said the course was about 15 plates, but we counted only 14 and two plates were salad and soup. Even do I recommend this restaurant but if I could give some tip I would say to stay at the menu and your own choices. The courses are too expensive and not worth it!

We had a mixed experience. It was my birthday, and I had always wanted to try Zuma, so I made a reservation. The day before, I got a call to confirm, and the woman told me that she was confirming a reservation in the main dining room and that the pastry chef was advised of a birthday. The food was excellent (we loved the shrimp tempura, eggplant and rolls we had), and the waiter served a very nice dessert with a "Happy Birthday". The wait staff (and there is no shortage of them) was also excellent. The issues we had were elsewhere - when we arrived, we were taken to a table right next to the bar - I indicated that we were supposed to be in the main dining room, and the hostess told us that we were in it. Having never been there before, we didn't know any better and asked for a table further from the bar, which is where we sat - it was not a problem, but after coming home, I read that the restaurant does have a main dining room, so that didn't make me very happy. When we left the restaurant, my husband took the valet ticket to the cashier outside and paid $21 to get our car. I overhead the woman behind us say that she forgot to have her valet ticket stamped. So I went up to the cashier and told her that we had just eaten at the restaurant, so should we have received a discount. She said that yes, it would have been $5 less, but it was too late, because my husband had already paid. I have never been to a restaurant with valet parking that someone (valet attendant, hostess, waiter) doesn't ask you about stamping your ticket. Both issues probably come down to the hostess staff, which is really lacking in competence or perhaps honesty. I felt that it was a shame to have such great food and service, but to conclude we would not return to this restaurant.
