We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was fabulous, the food was amazing and in good portions considering all the courses we had. Great experience
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.
FOOD IS AMAZING!
This is my 2nd time dining at TUYO. Back to back great outings, couldn't be happier with the food & service all while being spoiled with a view. The tasting menu was an amazing journey, I highly recommend it.
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.
I KEEP GOING BACK! EXCELLENT FOOD!!!!!
Excellent service, food and ambiance. The servers are true professionals. They know the menu well and make excellent recommendations. I keep going back. This place is a Miami jewel.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistcation!
Elegant, sexy, jazzy yet easy! The food is superb, presentation and service even better!

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... Highly recommended!!
Loved tuyo, amazing food, great service, killer view
Quite and romantic
The view is super nice. an 8th floor that allows you to see the freedom tower and the AAA. The food is great, we had the tasting menu. Nice wine list, easy to park and great service
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!
The description of the menu by our serves was fenomenal. I have never heard food described like that. The actual food was superb. Maybe the best I've had. Appetizer, main course (short rib Vaca frita) wow! Well be back!]
The tuna I ordered was uneatable for me to much peper essentially coasted in peppercorn They gave another tuna without pepper and it was poor in flavor.. Oddly I had tuna coated in pepper for lunch, ( I like Tuna) and it was perfect.. so it goes
Very romantic restaurant.
Servers are very professional and non-intrusive. Beautiful place with a gas burning fireplace.
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. Thank you.
One of our Favorites
We really like to take our out-of-town friends here to show off downtown Miami. We also like to eat here when we are attending a downtown performance. Food and view are great. Service is best in town.
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.
Overpriced and over spiced
Tuyo has a romantic overview of the city, a nice distraction from the kitchens overuse of spices. Which results in you looking at your partner with deep regret, wondering why didn't you go to your local apple bees. The ravioli has an explosion of favor, not in a good way. It's sweetness makes candies look bitter and the accompaniment of salad does little to dull the taste. The service was great, some of the best I've seen however in my 5 years of dining in the city however, you're pretty much paying them for the good service and not the quality of the food. They have a helpful staff that gives you the run down on why your food tastes so sweet, and the quantity of food for $50, is, for lack of a better term, a rip off. I will probably not be going back to this overpriced restaurant, not because of the excellent staff, but because of the tongue numbing food and money hungry menu.
Beautiful view of Miami. Excellent food.
Beautiful view of Miami. Excellent food.
I had my birthday dinner here. Amazing time. The service, food, view, staff was exceptional!
Wow! Fine dining in downtown.
This is a great place with the proximity to the arena and the view of the Freedom Tower and it had a great dining ambience. As it was a special occasion we made the night of it and went to Tuyo before a concert at the arena. The food is great. They have this wonderful warm vegetable tart at the start of the meal and different kinds of bread were offered. My dining partner had the nicoise tuna salad and the squash soup. I had the winter squash ravioli and I was completely blown away. I'm still grieving over the fact that I didn't get a taste of the soup. The salad had this great potato foam and was just wonderful. The ravioli had poached pears and a pecan-feta pesto and a drizzle of a pomegranate reduction. It seems like it would be sweet but it was just delicious. We were late making our reservation because of traffic and then had to leave quickly to make the concert. But we really wanted to stay longer. It's definitely the place to go for a very special occasion and really savor what your eating. It can be a bit pricey but definitely worth it. I almost forgot, service was friendly and attentive and they were very conscious of making sure we got our meal so that we'd make the concert in time.

The prices are exaggerated. The food is good and the friendly but professional service make a difference but because of the prices I won't be back for dinner.
A wonderful find!
The service was first rate. Although not a huge menu- there's something for everyone. The kale salad was light and refreshing. The Tuna steak was delectable. It's a little pricey but that's Miami. Bon Apetite.
TERRIBLE FOOD AND EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE
WE DINNE AT TUYO TWO YEARS AGO AND DECIDE TO DINNE FOR THE THIRD TIME BUY WHAT A SORPRISE. THERE WHERE ONLY THREE TABLES SO IT LOOKS EMPTY AND IT WAS A FRIDAY AT 9:00. THE FOOD WAS TERRIBLE AND THE BILL WAS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE. I DONT MIND TO PAY AN EXPENSIVE BILL IF I ENJOY THE FOOD BUT DEFENITLY IT WAS NOT WORTH IT. I WILL NEVER GO BACK.
It was nice
Good Food Nice View.... NYE 2015 Fixed Menu, good selection great service...
A real upscale gem
I have been to Tuyo on many occasions and have never been disappointed. From the excellent rolls and amuse bouche they serve before dinner, to the multi-course complete dinners that come with dessert, everything is excellent, including the wait staff and service. Breathtaking view complements the occasion. You will not be disappointed. Prices, surprisingly, are quite reasonable for what you get.
Great food and atmosphere
Enjoyed the tasting menu with the wine pairing. All courses were executed very well and the wines matched the food perfectly. The views and the staff were great.

Is the kind of restaurant that you are paying for the view, not impressed with the food, completely overpriced.
Solid but limited menu and atmosphere lacking
the place gas solid great food that is presented beautifully. The service was impeccable although with a 7:15 PM reservation, on a Friday night, we were the only people in the restaurant until 7:30 PM when another table showed. Strong but there's better!
Very pleasant dinner
The tasting menu with wine pairing was very good although a bit pricey for mostly local ingredients. One dish was overcooked, which is the reason I don't give it 5 stars for food. Very attentive service. Great atmosphere. It's not Norman, but certainly Norman inspired and worth the trip.

Always amazing! We went for Miami spice, and everything was delicious! Nothing more to say.
First and last visit to this restaurant, ...
First and last visit to this restaurant, there is no excuse to a fair quality food and poor service even if the ambiance and view is great. I had to keep looking for our server as he was never around nor was he checking on the table. There was way too much wait time between the plates served to the table and the quality did not match the price tag.
Wow! What a beautiful spot. We had the Miami Spice dinner and it was outstanding. The view is incredible, the staff attentive and the food was delicious! You must try the Passion Fruit Jalapeno Martini! OMG!
Enjoying Miami Spice Bossa Nova menu with the spectacular view of window north was a memorable pleasure. However, the best point of the night was the sweet, kind and dedicated service we got from Soad. She made sure perfection was delivered from start to finish.
It was a great experience; did not have an idea on how good the food and service was; they really took care of us, explaining in detail what we could order and why; and all the possible options we had; as a matter of fact, they had a really good Miami Spice menu, this time it was a Brazilian theme food, where their plates had unusual flavors. I would recommend this restaurant in a heart beat.
