Tuyo Ratings and Reviews

I took my small staff to dinner to celebrate our corporate anniversary. We showed up very early as I was also taking them to a show at the Arsht. So, we were the only ones in the restaurant when we arrived - which I actually liked. We had the whole wonderful place to ourselves and the staff handled it perfectly - leaving us to chat but always available when something was needed. It's about as good as service gets in a Miami restaurant. As this was a celebration, we all got the Tasting Menu with wine pairings. Of the five main course dishes two were very good and three were spectacular. The wines were varied and delicious. Although pricey, I don't think you can get a better meal in Miami, and it has to be one of the most elegant rooms in town.

This restaurant is a true gem. Manned by students at MDC Culinary Arts students, but with a professional service and kitchen staff. Wonderful view overlooking the Port and the Freedom Tower. It has become our favorite restaurant for a special meal. The chef takes great pride in his food and loves to come and talk to the patrons. A place not to miss!

We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and the attention we received from Eric and the staff was wonderful yet discreet.
We ordered the Ropa Vieja and the swordfish, both of which were outstanding in flavor, preparation and presentation!
The view and the romantic ambience were exceptional.
What a remarkable find in my own back yard!

First of all we waited three weeks for a reservation to be available and there was not a single other soul in the restaurant when we arrived and a group of 4 arrived 1.5 hours later as we were finishing up. The place is pretentious and over-priced given the hoopla. No noise because there wasn't anyone there. If this is an educational facility it is way overpriced for that. The red snapper I had was fishy tasting and not at all as good as I've had elsewhere. The presentation, dessert, coffee, service, and appetizer were good....delicious even. They put us facing a bunch of train tracks and construction while there was a much more pleasant view on the side of the restaurant. Given that it was empty one would expect they could seat us with the best view possible. Younger staff seemed nervous...okay for a teaching environment. The sense I had was that it was creepy. Thank goodness the company and most of the food was very good. But I will not go back.

Food quality was great but menu was very heavy for late June (lamb shanks, etc)
Service was wonderful
Ambience was okay - view was spectacular but nothing much beyond that
Would come again - have told others to try it as well!

We went for the tasting menu which was fantastic (although with hindsight we really didn't need the extra course). The short rib course was outstanding and the wine pairings were interesting and well chosen. On a Tuesday night off season the restaurant was very quiet- to be expected I guess.

My wife and I went to TUYO for our 30th anniversary. We had an excellent experience. We found the valet service a good feature, although slow when getting our car after dinner. The restaurant has a tasteful décor with a fine view of Biscayne Boulevard and the bay. Service was very professional, discreet and warm. The menu is somewhat limited but the food was of fine quality, as well as its presentation. We truly enjoyed TUYO and recommend it.
Great for a special occasion!
Food is tasty and nice . Waiting staff is very attentive and courteous. Outstanding view. (It would have been even better if dining room had been built facing the bay- where the kitchen is located). Food presentation is very pleasant. A little bit on the pricey side but suitable for a special occasion.

There was no gas on the kitchen, and even though the service was very attentive, we left without having any food due to they have to close the kitchen. They asked for my phone number and email address to contact me, I guessed to have some kind of courtesy or something, however they have not yet contacted me. (Friday Jun/3)
Althoght the ambient is romantic the views are just to a parking place. The service was really poor and although the quality of the food was good the quantity was too small. We took the tastig menu, pairing wines and none of them was that good. Moreover, the price is exagerated for what would you get. We wont came back and I wouldnt recommend it to anyone
Not a "wow" restaurant
Read reviews good and bad and decided to give it a try. The reception was pleasant but not friendly. The view is spectacular and the décor is fresh and modern. Now for the lack of wow. The best way to describe the service was "the timing was off" We were served a nice treat from the chef ...however our menus were still on the table and our drink orders had not been taken. One of our party members ordered a cocktail and the waiter did not come back to take the order for our wine until we flagged him over. All of the food was tasty and well presented but not worth the price for what was delivered. No regrets since the company was wonderful and we had a great time in spite of the "non-wow" factors.
Omg! I don't think there's enough world's to express my satisfactions. Tuyo is just the place that you can invite anybody. Clean place, the food is amazing, and the waiters are well educated of the menu... Not to forget the price is very affordable.
Not as good
I was disappointment on my new visit to Tuyo. The food was not great and staff not very friendly. Our waiter was not "nasty" but did not smile once and seemed impatient with us. There are many new restaurants in Miami were food is great and service amicable.
I think guests need to feel welcomed and appreciated if not pampered at these prices.
I doubt I will return.

Superb food, superb service! Intimate romantic setting. Convenient valet parking. The Staff was very attuned to the area's cultural events and times and asked us about our specific show attendance in order to pace our dinner, accordingly! Nice touch...
I went to Tuyo with My boyfriend and our newborn baby. We wanted to see the MDC culinary building because I'm a former student from this college. We didn't know what to expect from the Restaurant and we were very impressed with everything. The decoration is gorgeous, the music and the low lights make the dinning experience very romantic while enjoying the view. The food was outstanding! from the savory plates to the dessert. We are definitely going back!
Food and service are always above and beyond our expectations. From the moment we walk in through the double doors on the ground floor, to the moment we leave, we are welcomed and made to feel as their number one guest.
The food is amazing however, was rather disappointed with the last minute change in the first course and that we were not notified prior. All in all, a great meal none the less.
Eric as always provides us with excellent service.
I always take reviews with the proverbial grain of salt, whether they are favorable or not. My wife and I decided to beat the Valentine's Day rush and eat here a couple of nights earlier. What a great choice! The nighttime view of the Bayside/Arena skyline was unexpected. From the parking valet to the wait staff, everyone was engaging and helpful. Our waiter, Max, is a student at the culinary institute, but you wouldn't have known it by the extent of his knowledge, his good nature, and his service oriented demeanor.
The menu was not extensive, but I see that as a good thing--more attention paid to fewer items. For starters, we had the shrimp and grits and a kale salad. My entree was a superb tuna and my wife had some pork medallions. Accompanied by a very reasonably-priced Malbec and perfectly-sized desserts. It was a great evening. And, when we exited the elevator to the street, our car was already there! Somebody knows what they are doing. We will be back, with guests.
