“you can go by boat to Zuma”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

we had a dinner reservation but we went for lunch without a reservation which was a good choice. We sat out on the porch and saw many guests arriving by boat.Extremely friendly service and good advice what to take by a charming thai girl. One of the managers came by to ask if everything was ok they are extremly well organised. The food was very tasty and inventive.My husband had a business lunch for 24 $ which was perfect a light salad and then rice with different raw fish on top sashimi fusion style. I only had a spicy lobster soup exxellent and Sashimi with a light yuzu sauce on top also light and well presented.A full success.

“Great Sushi”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Just wish they'd let you order it at the regular bar. Then you are alone, you don't want to sit at a sushi bar.

“Ravishing !!!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We(2 couples) went to Zuma last Saturday and it was ravishing. The place to see and be seen!!!
What you can say when the food is excellent, the service perfect, the wine list very well balance and next to your table beautiful people including celebs like Emilio and Gloria Stefan having dinner with Christina Saralegui.
Nothing was missing. We even found the check fine.
I will be back soon. Au revoir !!

All the fabulous comments on Trip Advisor about Zuma are absolutely true! What a fabulous restaurant this is - brilliant atmosphere, excellent service, always full/busy and incredibly tasty dishes!

Stayed at the Epic hotel and visited Zuma twice during our 3 day stay! All the staff were very friendly, Jennifer in particular was fantastic and very helpful to us on both nights that we dined at Zuma.

We highly recommend dining at this very popular restaurant and strongly advise you to make a reservation as we did on both occasions, though on the 2nd occasion (Sunday) the restauarant was full all evening and we could only reserve a table in the lounge, which is also very good.

We will definitely return to Zuma when next in Miami! We are looking forward to trying Zuma in Dubai next month and then the London Zuma - hoping they are as enjoyable as the Miami Zuma.
Thank you to all the staff at Zuma!
