“Rude attitude from doorman”
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!”
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...

“very good, pricey and need reservations”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

it is very good, but it is a "Tapas" style restaurant so expect small portions. Need reservations. Great if you have a "yacht" and can arrive that way, neat to see such large yachts outside.

Valet is a mission... especially when crowded. not very efficient driveway.
