Description: zuma, located in the heart of downtown miami, brings chef rainer becker’s internationally acclaimed style of modern japenese cuisine to America. already renowned in london, hong kong, istanbul, and dubai, zuma miami offers a sophisticated cuisine philosophy of flavorsome, modern Japanese dishes in a fun and vibrant environment inspired by the informal dining style called izakaya. the menu is comprehensive and alluring. dishes are authentic but not traditional with bold, intense flavors and an emphasis on simple presentation acquired through quality ingredients. izakaya style means that dishes are designed to be shared at the table.

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.

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...

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.
