“Japanese with style!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We were lucky to find a reservation thanks to the concierge at the Four Seasons Hotel. We had a great dinner, the service was pretty good and the restaurant seems the be the hippest in the Miami scene. A must if you are in the area.

“Great food! Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

In town for the weekend and I pulled some strings ( thanks Gabriel Lewis concierge from Epic) to get a seat in this restaurant which is supposed to be the hot item in Miami these days. I found the food to be truly amazing!

I went with the tasting menu of a gazillion course meal which was like a large portion of tapas which kept coming. Each dish was incredible in itself. The sommelier was very knowledgable and made the nite perfect. Worth every penny I had.

“Relaxing, stylish, and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Stayed at the Epic Hotel here in Miami, of which Zuma is their signature restaurant. The food, service and overall ambiance is everything I would expect from a classy restaurant. Seems to be a favorite with the well-heeled Miami 30-something set as well.

Good lively ambience. Japanese foodies will love it. Its japanese with a continental touch. Service is good and fast. Food is excellent. Reserve your table well in advance. Sometimes the waiting is 5 to 6 days.

“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

Loved Zuma! We have been traveling for 3 weeks on honeymoon and dining at well rated restaurants around the U.S. Zuma was way up there as one of the best meals we have had. The food was amazing, service was great. Highly recommend the signature been tenderloin dish, I'm not a red meat eater normally but I ate every mouthful willingly! Delicious meal all round.
