Great food...Great ambience...No reservations needed!

Diverse menu in a 'low-key' yet elegant setting. Food is consistently good and reasonable. Service is a bit slow but otherwise, a great alternative.

Had a great breakfast, food was good and there was a lot of choice. Service for a 5 star hotel was average. A lot of talk about service, but had to wait to coffee, juice, bill... Overall pretty good.

Our experience at Vida was poor to say the least. We waited a long time to get our food. When it did come, my husband ordered prime rib med/well. It was raw! He sent it back and it came back in less then 3 minutes, a much smaller piece and cold. There was some sort of odd potato product that... More

We had breakfast at Vida twice during our stay at Vida. Rather than eating the buffet, we ordered off the menu. Staying that the Fountain Bleau, the restaurant location was convenient. Of course it was pricey, but that is expected at a hotel like this. The service at both of our meals was poor. (If Carlos is your waiter, find... More

Friendly waiters and a good buffet with lots of fresh fruit make Vida a great place to have a quick breakfast. Follow or precede by a walk on Miami beach next door to conclude your morning. Dinner not bad either. Had a very good quinoa salad for vegetarian.

Amazing food and service at Vida! We totally were wined and dined by the service staff, as the amazing food from the appetizers to the main course came out. I definitely recommend eating at this restaurant, as we had a bad experience at another restaurant in the hotel and came to Vida instead, which was from one bad experience to... More

Had the breakfast buffet which was included in our room package. Excellent variety and quality of foods on offer. Attentive service. Be advised that gratuity of 18% was added automatically to the tab.

Our first night in the hotel we simply wanted an easy meal to wash away the road dust of the day. The service was very good and we had comfortable seating in a banquette (I am sure we would not have enjoyed the night if seated at a regular table and chair setup). Both our meals were good but not... More
