Cafe Bastille - Miami reviews from OpenTable diners
- Great for Breakfast-LunchOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/1/2012Pro's: Friendly Customer service, good food, best seats are outdoor. Con's: Overpriced drinks $10 for mimosa, claustrophobic feeling eating indoors. Overall: great for breakfast-lunchSpecial Features:
- I have come here with my familyRO13Dined on 8/22/2012I have come here with my family for a late lunch. The restaurant was empty, so we did receive quite some attention. The food was not to our liking, and we did not eat it. None of us ate the food, but we were charged for it none the less. Very disappointing.
- I was pleasantly surprisedOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 3/31/2012I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. I questioned the chef (Elouise) about an ingredient in the sauce that came with the filet mignon and she was more than eager to explain. I did not expect this level of sophistication in this little bistro like restaurant. quite a find!Special Features:
- Ambiance may not match the foodOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/29/2012I didn't actually sample the food because I couldn't get beyond the ambiance (or lack thereof) of this place. Its on a not great street and the inside has small patio type tables with folding chairs, that looked really uncomfortable. It didn't look particularly clean but it may just be old. The tables are really crammed in to a very, very small place lining a cafeteria like space where the food is assembled. Given the description of the food from other reviewers, the place itself seemed really out of synch. I wanted a nice romantic french dinner and this just wasn't the atmosphere. Based on other reviews, I expect the food is really good. Just be aware that the surroundings may not match.
- The food tasted like it waskwoodsVIPDined on 3/3/2012The food tasted like it was straight from France! Generous portions, and very delicious. We had a very attentive waiter and no wait for the food. The only downside was that there was a lot of traffic on the street during our meal.Special Features:
- Excellent personal service.OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 1/25/2012Excellent personal service. Food was freshly prepared and perfectly seasoned. Wine pairing was wonderful. I recommended to colleaguesat our company meeting.Special Features:
- The Cod was perfectly cookedOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 1/25/2012The Cod was perfectly cooked and delicately seasoned. The wine was very affordable with many excellent options. The decor is simple. Excellent flavors without overly complicated dishes. My kind of place!Special Features:
- just ok for a quick lunch.OpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 12/7/2011just ok for a quick lunch. not impress with food or service. and worst thing of all, the next door parking lot!!! do not park there! $25 after 30 min. I spent more money on them than on my food!!! not even worth it.
- THEY WERE CLOSEDOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/27/2011When I got there it was closed. They closed at 5pm that day. I wish I would have none before taking my wife there, but we went somewhere else.
- Fresh French FoodamiamiDined on 8/25/2011Found this place on Open Table, was downtown and thought I'd give it a try. Had two appetizers as my meal - escargot and the grilled octopus. They were both equally delicious! I have never had such fresh, scrumptious octopus. amazing. I would have preferred to sit outside, but it was raining. the interior of the restaurant is small and plain. but, it's downtown and yummy so i would definitely go back. Also the service was totally friendly and on top of everything.Special Features:
- Looking for a casual spotRollingStoneMiamiVIPDined on 7/19/2011Looking for a casual spot in NE Miami-Dade County to enjoy familiar French fare, we chose this sidewalk cafe in downtown Miami. The night was warm and muggy; we sat inside with a view of the street and the made-to-order preparation of our selections. Requisite onion soup, escargot and moules in celebration of Bastille Day did not disappoint. Standouts for our table of three, salad accompanied by goat cheese, creme brulee with a touch of lemon, and just-right cups of expresso and cafe au lait. Wait staff and chef are attentive and engaging, creating a relaxed atmosphere for enjoying a meal with friends.Special Features:
- My friends and I needed aOpenTable Diner Since 2003Dined on 7/14/2011My friends and I needed a place for dinner on Bastille Day. The food here is truly excellent and since the restaurant is in Downtown, it's pretty quiet at night. The staff is flexible. We started out as just two, but two more joined us. We brought our own wine. They gave us each a glass of champagne to celebrate Bastille Day. Since it was the end of the day, there were a couple of items sold out, but we started with escargots and foie gras profiteroles. Both starters were wonderful. For dinner, the braised leg of lamb is amazing -- and a ton of food. It could easily feed 2, unusual for a French restaurant. Highly recommended.
