“Deserves it, even when they drop the ball.”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

DB wouldn't accept chatter amongst the staff at reception or in the bar. Yet chatter away they do. Sometimes going on about their shifts right behind you at the bar, or who will baby sit who's dog during the holidays. Not interested.

Also, the dj happy hour doesn't seem necessary for the sixteen gators it attracts.

Focus focus focus.

“Not very good”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

I have been here several times, but mainly cause I run out of options in Miami. It has never been bad, but also never great. It is right in the middle, kinda expensive but not over the top so I keep going back but I am never wowed.

“One of the best meals we've had in Miami!!!”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

Atmosphere: beautiful, chic, modern. high ceilings, trendy music.
Food: AWESOME!!! We had stone crab, lobster salad, and fois gras terrine. It could not be any better. I almost licked my plate. Entrees were excellent and so was dessert. The sirloin truffle burger was amazing with pomme frites.
Service: Server was very knowledgeable and prompt.
I would definitely go back.

“Thanksgiving lunch”
Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is worth every penny. Our party of 5 enjoyed Thanksgiving lunch 3 course meal which was priced at $60 excluding tax. At first the family thought it was highly overpriced however when we received the food it was beyond excellent. Service was great and we even got complimentary sandwiches to go.

If I am ever in this area again I will definitely return. Great food, great service, tranquil atmosphere. Just love it.

“too much money for too litle”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

the bistro look chic and the service is quitte posh, but i go to a restaurant to eat.
the foie gras tasted like a low quality can, i am french and know good foie gras.this taste like a liver pate.and the size was xxxxsmall.
the ravioli with lobster where nice, but the size again, man i need more food then that.i am a women with a normal appetit and usually leave food on my plate.
the plateau de fromage was good, a lot of choice.
and a excellent glas of wine, at a cost ,18 dollar.
a diner for one with 3 course was 135 dollars without tip.
