“Trendy chic but waited 1 hour to get sitted”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Besides a reservation, confirmed and partly paid in advance we had to wait 1h15 min to get our table as they gave it to someone else. It was Art Basel Miami fair, so the city was busy. They hardly excused and didn´y even offered a drink. Apart from this, had a great dinner on the terrace with view over the River with yachts and downtown Miami skyscrapers. Inside it was just too loud and to crowded. Asian Japanese fusion food, very creative and great quality, expensive. Place to see and be seen during the fair. Can't say for other seasons.

“Rude attitude from doorman”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were told about Zuma while staying at Epic from the front staff. We walked up to the front door and the doormen rudely told us we were being denied entry due to our attire. I had on expensive destroyed jeans and sandals and my husband had on Polo jeans and top. Rather than go change clothes to gain admittance, we walked to a restaurant down the street. They were great and appreciated our business and the fat tip.

“Expensive, but awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Like: My favorite is the sweet & spicy beef... absolutely melts in your mouth (and i'm not even a steak person)

Like: the drinks... cocktails are innovative and refreshing

Like: sushi is fresh... (although dislike the portions)

Dislike: portions overall... it's expensive... it's always crowded...
