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.

Still craving Sushi after a great Caribbean cruise, we waited for our flight home at Vida Restaurant at the Miami Beach Fontainebleau Hotel. For lunch, the menu is divided into Asian and varied American/Continental/Mexican/Italian offerings, including Rice Cazuelas, sandwiches, wraps, pizzas and pastas while the restaurant physically divides for dinner. The Asian side of the menu does not appear to... More

Had lunch yesterday and this place is on point. Started with miso soup and then had the Cuban sandwich. Offered as a wrap but the waiter got the kitchen to make me a sando. I thought I knew what a Cubano was but this one set me straight. Fantastic! May go have another one today.

Family of 4 went for Thanksgiving Buffet. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. Choices of the buffet were phenomenal and snow crabs and scallops made the price per person feel reasonable. Only wish they had a bigger selection of bubblies.

My family and I had a wonderful experience at Vida. Our waitress, Ari, was sweet as can be and helped us choose food based on all our different allergies. The food was excellent.

Customizable Bloody Mary options. Very good food. Service was good but it took forever for the food to come out of the kitchen.

I'm not a fan of hotel restaurants generally, mostly because the food usually doesn't measure up to the price. I suppose that might be true of Vida, too. It's expensive, and for the price, some gourmets might say you can find better food for the price. Nevertheless, if you want an upscale casual dining experience, Vida's a good choice. It... More
