    Mayu was a phenomenal all around experience. From the moment you walk in, you’re treated with utmost class and friendliness. This is rare in Miami, where service is often standoffish. Mayu takes pride in communicating well and helping guests out as much as they can. The food was great. Highly recommend the arroz meloso characato.

    The greeting upon entry was warm and fun with the rose hand wash. The waiter seemed like he was relatively new because his interactions with us was very awkward. For example he tried to tell us about the lobster special, however he was only able to tell us that it's really good. No real description or explanation of how it's prepared. It was my husband's birthday so we ordered dessert and I asked him to make it special...wink,wink. He came back to the table and asked twice!! If i wanted it to say happy birthday. Ruined the whole experience. We also ordered a double espresso along with the dessert and I had to remind him about it after the dessert was eaten and we were just sitting there waiting and he came over to ask if we needed anything else. Finally, I asked him if they validated the valet ticket and he never got back with a response after saying he would find out. The drinks were ok. I ordered a lychee martini, it wasn't balanced with acidity or alcohol content, the lychee was mushy and gross. They charged $16 for the martini and $3 for the mushy lychee and $3 for grey goose upgrade! We ordered the ceviche sampler, spicy tuna roll and anticucho appetizers. The ceviche was great! My son loved the tuna roll, however the beef in the anticuchohile very flavorful was extremely chewy. Due to this along with the limited entree choices I lost interest in the menu afterwards. Son ordered the duck dish and my husband ordered the Branzino. My son enjoyed his meal, however the Branzino was really plain and bland. We expected more flavor and pizzazz from a Peruvian restaurant. Overall I was underwhelmed by the service, and lack of variety. If I could redo it I would've gone to Mayu for the ceviche sampler and Capital Grille or Trulucks for a guaranteed great entrée!! I was was just trying to mix it up. Or I should've taken the late reservation at Cote for a different experience.

    Mayu in Miami offers an exceptional dining experience. The sushi is fresh and expertly crafted, showcasing a delightful blend of flavors. The ceviche is a standout, balancing citrusy notes with the perfect amount of spice. The drink selection complements the meal, enhancing the overall enjoyment. The vibrant atmosphere and attentive service add to the restaurant's appeal, making it a must-visit for sushi and ceviche enthusiasts we love this place and is gonna be added to our favorite restaurants list

    We went for my daughter's birthday, and we were so pleased with everything. From the moment you walk in, they greet you with water to wash your hands as a symbol of a blessing to the food. The customer service was 10/10, and the food was 10/10. Everything was delicious. I highly recommend it!

    Lovely restaurant with a great vibe, awesome people, and wonderful food. On arrival, the hostess greeted us with a story about MAYU, the culture it draws from, and asked us to perform a simple hand-washing ritual that was very fun. I would recommend they ask the individuals "would you like to partake?" as it was more demonstrated, then assumed we would participate. I loved it, but I could see someone shy, or more averse feeling "pressured". Once seated, our server John was incredibly kind and helpful. He recommended two excellent drinks for us. The appetizer, Wagyu Anticuchero, was incredibly flavorful. Our two main dishes, the Lomo Saltado and Wild Challwa were fantastic. John then recommended a desert to us which was incredible as well. Very happy with the dining experience. Once the check came, I had to redo the math in my head to make sure a zero didn't get added by accident though. It's one of the best meals you can have, even if it means not going out again for a few days / weeks.
