“Best Sunday brunch in Miami”

Espectacular Asian Sunday brunch. Excellent food, service. Expensive but worth every $ if you can appreciate the excellent food. ..... And of course Champagne until you say "no more"

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Nice environment, beautiful people, great food, very tasty and the presentation of each dish was spectacular. In the end, as I informed it was my husband birthday, they gave a dessert with happy birthday note. Nice touch!

“One of the best meals I have ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

We eat out a lot...and I mean A LOT! This weekend we made reservations at Zuma. There was a brief moment when we thought about canceling...they tell you that you must cancel 24 hours in advance or you will be charged $50 a head...this was definitely a turn off and part of my initial doubts. Well, we came up with a definite head count and wandered over.

If you haven't been to the Epic Hotel, it is a place to see and be seen. If you are driving an American car, park somewhere else. So if that isn't your scene you may want to avoid this place. But since we dont care about the flash, we go where we please.

At our servers recommendation, we tried the tasting menu, at $95 a head. It sounds pricey but it is so worth it. I think we were served 10 courses. TEN! Then they brought a mountain of dessert. Everything, and I mean everything was spectacular. All the sashimi was fresh, the dumplings delicious, the hot items to die for. And dessert...a vision that could not be passed over even though we were stuffed.

Next time we are in town, we will make our reservations further in advance so we can be seated a little later and enjoy the scene a bit more. This is a top 10 meal ever...and I have been blessed to eat in some of the finest restaurants in the world. Great job!

“Good expensive food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Zuma is a hip place that is more Miami Beach than Brickell. The place is packed,noisy with an immediate bar scene. The food is good,with fresh fish,and imaginative sushi. It is very expensive even for brickell. Very very noisy.

Service is adequate for a place that is bursting at the seams with costumers.

“one of the best Restaurants in Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

The food is delicious every single time! I must have dined here at 20-25 times. The food is of the highest standard. The staff are professional. The cocktails are spectacular.

Here is the secret. Order the one Tomahawk steak. It's not on the menu. The best steak you will have in your life!!! it comes with fresh Truffle shredded ontop with wasabi and sea salt on the side.

Absolutely amazing place for any occasion. Also, don't miss out on their awesome brunch.
