What a great way to wake up in the morning and know you'll be treated like royalty. The staff members Led by Carlos are all top-of-the-line, well trained and all extremely down to earth and real people. These comments are coming from my husband who is in the restaurant business in Chicago and he knows and understands this business well.... More

Perfect after a long walk on the board walk for breakfast. Very welcoming staff, standard breakfast fare with some good lo-cal, "spa" cuisine choices. Pluses--try and get a table by the windows. Cons--Sunday morning and there was a wait, and it is the only restaurant that serves breakfast unless you wan to grab and go, and why do that when... More

After a long day in the sun and walking around South Beach, my daughter and I were too tired to get all dolled up for dinner. We had sundresses on and were comfortable in our attire here. She had a shrimp pasta dish and loved it - my Filet Mignon was grilled to perfection. Our server was very attentive and... More

My son and I arrived to the hotel late and wanted to grab a bite to eat. I order the burger and he got the Caesar salad. My hamburger was pretty darn good. The wait staff were very friendly. Prices were a bit pricey, but not unexpected given it's inside a hotel.

Had breakfast and food was good but definitely not worth the price. Service was a bit off that morning but still good. There was four of us.

Service by Efraim was impeccable. Food was served quickly, hot, fresh and perfect. Couldn't have asked for a better dinner anywhere.

While at a convention, we ducked into the coffee shop for a quiet meeting and was pleasantly surprised. It was very busy but the wait staff was pleasant and prompt. We ordered the lobster wedge salad. $22 each, this was a deal on Miami Beach!

In my first review of Vida, I was underwhelmed by the quality of the food (save desserts), the service, and the overall experience, for I was unlucky enough to come in a day where the hotel was evacuated because of a fire. The manager of Vida read my review and kindly invited me to come for a second time to... More

We had breakfast in Vida and how exceptional. All food on display was replenished regularly by observant & attentive chefs & servers. So often buffets can be 'old hat' but this restaurant still manages those cooked to order flavours. A difficult task executed with style.

We have bfast here when we stay at the hotel and it's always been a satisfying experience. They serve the best rye bread in the southern US for sure. Everything is good, but this bread really stands out to me.
