Tuyo Ratings and Reviews

We have been to the restaurant 5-7 times and always enjoyed the menu, service , atmosphere and view. I made the reservation for 8:45 to celebrate my husband's birthday after a cultural event downtown. We arrived 15 mins early and had to wait 35 minutes to be seated and there is no seating or a bar. I understood with a late night reservation. The issue is once seated my husband and I decided to order the Tasting Menu with the wine pairings. An expensive , yet great choice for this restaurant knowing the food and service in the past., it's a culinary arts school! The waiter took our order without any engagement, just asked if we wanted the foie gras as it was $15.00 more, we did. After 10+ minutes are first course/salad arrived sans a wine pairing for 12 minutes. When the waiter came he said this is a Sauvignon Blanc and poured a small pour. The couple next to us ordered the Miami Spice Menu and an average price bottle of wine and the waiter gushed over them about the vineyards, the barrells and process, etc.? After our 1st course I decided to complain to the manager as I didn't want to go through this for 4 more courses. When you order a Tasting Menu with wine pairings, you expect to learn more about the food, the preparation, why the sommelier and chef determined this menu and wine pairing etc. There was absolutely no engagement with us whatsoever from our waiter. The service and engagement was improved 75% once I complained and the Foie Gras was provided complementarily vs. the upcharge and we were given a split of champagne and a birthday dessert and candle in addition to our 5 courses in the tasting menu. The food was superb. I realized our waiter was inexperienced, yet service levels improved from when we first arrived. So the night was saved. I think training is needed as the other waiters were very responsive and professional. Last, the sommelier could not answer our question about the wine and seemed surprised that we would ask him?

My boyfriend, myself and a couple who are good friends enjoyed Tuyo's Miami Spice Menu. The view from the top of the building is wonderful. The wait staff was attentive and personable and professional. Our meals were delicious...the choices were varied and well-prepared. The hostess was gracious and our waiter, Max was quite good. We trusted him to select the wine pairings.
Wine is expensive one of us who order a glass of Moscato paid $18 dollars...the wine flights were $19 for two moderate size glasses. But the wines were good.
We added adventure by taking the Metrorail and the Metromover to College Station Bayside and walking about a block. I think Miami Spice make Tuyo more affordable.

We visited Tuyo again on a recent Saturday night with another couple, long time friends. We decided to try the Miami Spice menu and were not disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere were exemplary. I have been to Tuyo many times, and always have a great meal and am never disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food is exceptional. The wait staff is seems to be hit or miss, with periods of great service followed by sudden lapses. The only complaint though, would be the closeness of some of the tables and the acoustics of the room.

It's not often enough that you enter a public establishment, restaurant or otherwise, and feel the care and warmth that Tuyo and its staff offers. Small touches are everywhere, from the initial greeting to the car waiting when you exit, and in between, the food, service, atmosphere and view of the city and bay are all a cut above just about every other high end restaurant. It doesn't look like much when you enter on the street level, but the elevator takes you somewhere else altogether. The Miami Spice menu was excellent from start to finish, including my crispy skin bass in prosciutto pepper broth. Desserts too.

The Hostess was excellent. Not only she greeted and sat customers but picked up tables ; a hard working employee. Not impressed with the bar service, the martinis were nothing to write home about. Wine glasses were beautiful, but the servings were samplers instead of real drinks. Was not impressed with the food at all and the dessert was not acceptable. View was spectacular. Glad we tried it though!

The Miami Spice Menu - South version was very good. The Duck Breast was perfect... The Bacalao Sticks were a croquettes and not as good as I thought... A friend tried the Foie Gras was just DELSIH... and the view... the view it's just fantastic!

Excellent place and professional service. Food is delicious but the portions were extremely small for what the charged for. I visited the place during Miami Spice event, and to meet the fixed event's pricing, they gave us almost testing portions, which didn't satisfy us, and we paid $ 280.00 for a party of 4. Tip was forced on the bill, which is not ethical and put us in a embarrassing situation.

Really enjoyed the overall dining experience.....service was attentive and knowledgable! We enjoyed the Miami Spice menu and were able to try just about everything on the menu. Everything we had was delicious and just the right amount. And the dessert......so good.

I'm afraid this last visit to Tuyo is our last. Everything has gone downhill. The food, although presented very beautifully, was lack luster. The meats were overcooked and dry. The fish was nothing special. The desserts were actually awful. The only thing that was good was the jalapeño martini. And a place that always had good service unfortunately no longer does. It appeared only one waiter was working. He never checked on our table and we felt he did not care to be there. It's unfortunate that Tuyo has lost its spark. Everything that was great about it, the food, the service, is no more. The only thing left is the ambiance which is no longer enough to bring us back.

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.
