We had concert tickets for 8 downtown and Tuyo's doesn't open until 6. They accommodated us early and we had a very relaxing not rushed meal (Including their famous 6 course tasting menu) and left at 7:35 PM in time for our show. Our waiter Palton was superb and the hostess and Manager Sarah were all to be commended The food---amazing as always!

A mixed bag. Appetizers ( samosa and beet salad ) were good I had snapper which was excellent but my wife's scallops had a weird almost too briny, metallic taste. We were there for Adele concert and had no problem with service. After the concert the valet had our car sitting out front of the restaurant waiting for us. Definitely the way to go.

The service was atrocious, our order was taken 45 min after we sat down, the food took forever to come, in spite of letting them know we needed to be finished before 7:30 to go to a show. When the food arrived one was cold, the other overcooked and instead of meat it was all fat and gristle! we got up and left as did many others...

My wife and I were looking very much forward to dine here prior to a concert at the Arena next door which was at 730pm. We arrived punctually at 6pm and were seated right away. Our drink orders where expedited well. Then we placed our food order, so far so good. However, after that we heard nothing! We even ordered from the 'concert menu' which we expected would be served in good time. But we kept waiting for our food. After 50 minutes we asked the manager when our food is being served? He said he would check but didn't come back. Then at 705pm with no news we had no choice but to get up and leave the restaurant in order to make the concert on time. We are normally very patient people and we understand this is part of a culinary school with students etc but this was just too much with no attention from staff to our problem. We had a deadline to make for our concert but irrespective one should not wait over one hour for even the first dish to be served. Sorry to say.

Did not enjoy my dining experience this time at Tuyo. Server was not helpful, and several times seemed unavailable. The portions this time were much smaller, and with my 3 course, none of which tasted good. Understand its students, so maybe that's why its hit or miss.

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!
