“excellent food and pure glamour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

From entering to departing this venue, it takes your breath away set in stunning water front surroundings.
Interior beautiful.
Dress to impress full and I mean full of poseurs, outside had 5 Ferraris parked up.
The food was excellent.
The service was excellent.
Didn't pay but I am sure it was super expensive... A lot of truffles use.

“Pretentious”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Terrible valet service. Food not that special. Bad service. It took 20 min to hand the car to the valet. Wait at the door for a not so good food. 45 min wait to leave.

“Ultra Hip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Wonderful restaurant. Great cocktails at the bar. The $145 omakase menu was fabulous. No wonder it is one of the hardest places to get a table in Miami. I highly recommend.

“Eat in style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A truly upscale restaurant inside of the Epic. Zumba is a great place to go for an amazing meal or just have a drink at the bar. It's a great place to take a date or put on your finest and see and be seen. Not a great place to rush thru dinner, plan to stay a while.

“Starting to get ahead of itself.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I've been here four times now. Each time the menu has got a little more compressed and a little more expensive.......and the restaurant has become a little more pretentious.

The London site has WAY better food....(even Dubai is better IMHO) - and the service is nothing to write home about.

I think this is the latest restaurant to get carried away with its own sense of celebrity.

If thats your thing then great - but the food is no longer the main attraction of this restaurant - and surely thats wrong?

So if you want somewhere "hip and trendy" to be seen - then this is your place - but its no longer a must dine location solely for the food (which is a shame as it used to be).
