turned away twice at the door. I live a few buildings down, same game both times I tried to eat there mid week at 6:30ish pm. Its either the stroller with the baby or the sneakers that I was wearing (which was the door persons excuse the first time for not having any space). Attempted to go to dinner again last night place was very empty, it was of course 6:30 on a wed night. Door person only stopped myself and my wife pushing the stroller. Same exact thing happened as first time we were turned away, "let me see if we have reservations available, guy goes inside for a few minutes and comes out and says, sorry nothing available will be at least a 45 minute wait." Meanwhile its 6:30 and the restaurant was empty. Walked across to Cipriani were seated immediately also in a mostly empty restaurant and had a phenomenal meal. Food may or may not be good, just don't like the screening process for allowing people in, both times my wife, the stroller and I were the ONLY people stopped at the door, everyone else freely walked in and out without being questioned about a reservation. Very insulting way of doing business.

Zuma is one of my favorite restaurants and they have outdid themselves once again. I must start by saying that scheduling a reservation is a must and depending on the day even the valet is going to take a while. The sevice was superb as usual and the food exquiste. We started with spicy lobster miso soup and crispy fried squid with green chili and lime. Followed by king crab with panzo lime butter, spicy beef tenderlon with sesame, red chili and sweet soy and blackcod marinated in saikyo miso with homemade hajikame. Special mention to the guns & roses cocktail and the mojito's. I will continue to reccomend Zuma to anyone looking for a unique culinary experience in a trendy and hip setting.

Long-Time Customer of Original Zuma in London. Have spent thousands of dollars in both London and Miami. Had 7:15 PM Reservation. Seated at 8:15. Asked to leave table at 10:00 PM for table turn and spending only $240 in 1.5 hours. Spent $450 the night before in same time frame. Willem the General Manager embarrassed himself, my table, and the surrounding patrons. Table was reserved by Bar Manager who I thought was a friend over the last 5 years....

Overpriced, uncreative. Just because you can put teriyaki to every dish doesn't make it a fusion Japanese. The maki is very average. Nice location but average food and overpriced.

You know you are in a restaurant in high demand when you are given a time limit. As our party of 4 arrived we were asked if 1 hour and 45 minutes was sufficient time to dine in this lovely establishment. In all fairness we arrived last minute and did not have a reservation, however we were not disappointed at all with the meal and dining experience. The service was on point and the food was delicious. We ordered a bottle of saki, and various tofu and sushi plates to share. The food was amazing ! The highlight of the meal was dessert! The chocolate lava cake is to die for. I definitely enjoyed the meal and will be returning very soon.

Food was excellent and reminded me of Nobu. Service was very good as expected but I have never been asked for our table especially after a $400+ dinner.
