Diner Reviews
  • "I have never eaten at a restaurant with so many staff hovering over me at every moment, as if I was going to have a stroke at the table! This was supposed to be a romantic evening, but every time I tried to whisper something to my date, one of the servers rushed over and asked if everything was OK. If it weren't so funny, I would have been furious. In addition, the prix fixe menu was 100 bucks a head, and each portion was the size of tablespoon at best. We started joking about going to McDonalds afterwards because we were so hungry! Solution: 1. Teach the staff the difference between being attentive and intrusive, 2. Double the portion size so diners have a chance to really enjoy what were great creations but starvation portions..."

  • "The service, the food, the ambience... nothing less than PERFECT! Each course exceeded my every expectation. The foie gras was my personal favorite! Be prepared to be AMAZED!!"

  • "I brought my own wine who had been waiting to be opened for two years. The waiter wanted to serve it directly without using a decanter or letting it breath. He had no idea, and did not care to ask, what we were drinking. Were charged a $30 corkage fee regardless. I've been to similar restaurants where the wine has been treated way better and have ended up not paying the published fee. Food is good but felt rushed through the whole experience. Don't think I would go again."

  • "We are BIG fans of "tasting menus" . Have had several experiences in Miami's Zuma & St Regis and N.Y's Jean Georges and 11 Madison. At $135.00 a person the tasting menu at Palme D'Or was more like a series of 6 unremarkable Hors d'oeuvres, then an over the top light show of a dessert with an ice bowl that changes colors. Nothing stands out as a star or incredibly delicious, except for the small home made rolls served at the beginning. Maybe it was an "off night". This restaurant is very good when one orders from the Prix Fixe menu but they need to work on the tasting menu. However, the setting is spectacular, the service impeccable."

  • "The experience was exactly what I would expect from the beautiful historic Biltmore Hotel. Portion sizes were typical of Nuevo cuisine, but all the flavors were just amazing. The Foie Gras Poelle was amazing! Patrick the manager was so informative and knowledgable as well as our server Eddie. I look forward to our return."

  • "We went for our 21st wedding anniversary. Chose the seven course menu with wine pairings. It was very good, definitely worth the price, but i am not sure if I would go back, which for me means it didn't blow me away. The ambience was a little formal, but hey we are looking at a French restaurant, right? My favorite part: dessert was served in a bowl made of ice...very cool! "

  • "First time I was returning to "Palme d'Or" after the departure of Philippe Ruiz left the boat. Great diner, fantastic food. I would not hesitate to say and write, the best food in Miami. Can easily challenge the best in NYC and even in Europe... Service is outstanding too, nothing to complain. Great experience, will return soon to confirm."

  • "We LOVE this restaurant & go to it for all special our occasions & my son also takes his clients dining here. This time we had to pleasure to bring our grandson to celebrate my husbands birthday w/ the family. When I made the reservation I specified that we would have a baby w/ us. We were called (I suppose by the hostess) when we were on our way to the restaurant & she told us that the restaurant is not at all baby friendly & that the manager would have to discuss us bringing the baby in. They were very ugly about the baby over the phone. Once we got there though they were friendly w/ us & w/ the baby. We had a wonderful visit w/ Patrick & the wine & cuisine are over the top exquisite but we were disappointed w/ the reaction to the baby."

  • "The service, ambience and food are magnificent. The servers are knowledgable and passionate. The food is the best I've found in Miami anywhere. A few years back that was not the case. This Chef is amazing. It compares to the finest in NYC and that's saying something."

  • "Having eaten at all types of places over my 51 years I was Very Impressed with the service and seven course meal. We dined for three enjoyable hours and have only a wonderful memory with no idea how it could have been better. We look forward to a return trip to the beautiful Biltmore and its excellent restaurant. Great work!!!"

  • ""Outstanding" does not fully describe the food and the experience. The restaurant and Biltmore setting gives one the impression that you have been transported to Europe."

  • "I had heard some whispering a about this place, but since our trips here usually are centered around South Beach, I hadn't given the hotel and its restaurant much thought. I finally decided to pull the trigger, so we got a baby sitter and came out to the hotel. The grounds are fantastic, and vividly showcase the "classic" Miami and key West from the thirties and forties. The service was impeccable and friendly. Usually food this good comes with a bit of intimidation, but the staff was incredibly friendly running the gamut from the waiter all the way to the Maître D'. We are DEFINITELY coming back. That tasting menu is making me hungry as I write this"

  • "This restaurant, although a great venue and a very nice setting, continues with the multi course dining method, which is getting tiresome and quite expensive. The five course dinner, the smallest one, runs $105 per person. Add in corkage for wine brought from home, coffee, tax and gratuity, and you're at about $170 per person. Thesr are many other area restaurants with better, more conventional food selection, at much lower prices. Once a year at most here."

  • "This restaurant reminded my wife and me of the great old days of Bouley, Jean George, LeCirque and Daniel in New York. The food, service, ambience and overall experience was just plain excellent. We had the seven course tasting and each course was another great journey in gastronomic heaven. The portions are just the right size. The pacing allows ample time to savor the course just finished and have time to talk and socialize. This is great, grand, excellent dining from time past. A must stop on any trip through Miami."

  • "We happened upon Palme D'Or on a recent trip to Miami. We had not done our research on good restaurants and did not want to be disappointed. Palme D'Or received unequivocally excellent reviews on Zagat, so we got a reservation. It was more than we could have expected. While the five course tasting menu cost as much as our hotel, the experience was worth it. The service was personal and attentive, without being over-involved. The food was exquisite. Each component was detailed and delicious. Completely deserving of the five stars. We completely enjoyed a romantic and memorable night."

  • "Pretentious, expensive, tasting menu only, but very well done. We were celebrating a birthday and it was a big success."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Old style French restaurant atmosphere with delicious, sophisticated twists on classic recipes. The staff was very accommodating and had a good sense of humor. The food was all excellent though the portions on the tasting menu were small. I doubt we could have eaten more, when you include dessert, bread and a post-dessert collection of chocolates and other sweets that arrive just before the bill. Wine prices range from affordable to absurd, so everyone should be able to find something. The only negative about eating at Palme d'Or is knowing that you could be eating in the lovely courtyard at the hotel with its beautiful old fountain. Solution: go twice."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "I've been to this restaurant a few times before and aside from been an extremely beautiful place I have never had a good dinning experience in this place. However, because they have a new French chef, I decided to give it another try. I do not like the micro size gourmet portions been served, and even though I'm not a big eater this dinning experience was not worth the price. This will be the last time I'll give this restaurant an opportunity. I will also not recommend it to friends and family. It's simply too expensive for what you get, unless you just want ambience and service. However, if you expend $ 1200 for dinner for four, you'll get excellent service anywhere."

  • "A gem of a restaurant off the beaten track in Coral Gables. Absolutely brilliant food, knowledgeable staff and warm atmosphere. I wouldnt hesitate to return."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We are long time fans of the Palme d"Or. The new menu design with fixed dishes and courses is a recipe for failure with the local crowd. Miami is a competitive food market, this "new" version will have to survive off hotel guest and visitors. There is no reason to make a repute trip for this level of food. Nothing was fantastic and the similarities between dishes made for a vary similar taste each course. The effort to be over the top and add FOAM to every dish is just not needed, let the food speak for its self. Truffled risotto was excellent, but smothered in truffles? No need to force the issue you have the talent try to be a little more subtle."

  • "This is one of those places you go for a special occasion. It's pricey, expect to spend at least $200 a person. Recommend to get the 7-course menu."

  • "I kind of stumbled on the palm d'Or restaurant by staying at the Biltmore. My first booking was impossible because it was sold out. I took my son his girlfriend and my husband on a Tuesday night to celebrate a small victory. We were able to celebrate the small victory in a very lbih way-great restaurant!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Service and overall experience was wonderful. Excellent bread, cheeses, presentation of food. Only reason I took a star off is they should add some more basic meat choices - the 4th course choices were all adventurous (rabbit, sweetbreads, squab) or included an outrageous upcharge for Kobe beef. A basic chicken or meat would have been nice even if done in a fancy preparation."

  • "One of America's best in every way. The tasting menus were divine! The service was impeccable. A flawless dining experience. Exceptional in every way."

  • "A new chef is now in charge, and this restaurant is still excellent. An important change is that an a la carte menu is no longer offered. However, the prix fixe menu which is now standard should not be a problem because it includes many options for all courses.. Highly recommended."

  • "We've been to many best restaurants all over the world. It's one of the best, and for sure the best in Miami. We had a 5-course tasting menu that was perfect. Don't miss it!"

  • "This was an anniversary dinner which matched the best in NYC or London. The food was great, the explanations of each of the 5 courses was perfect, and service from the maitre d' and waiters was attentive and friendly. Similar high quality to Gramercy Tavern in NYC or Gordon Ramsay in London. We definitely will go back soon; no need to wait for a special occasion."

  • "I visited Palme d'Or for the first time. After having eaten there, I cannot believe that I have missed out on this dining experience. This is fine dining at the highest level. I have never been to such a fine restaurant in South Florida. The service is impeccable. The menu, while somewhat limited, is exquisite and very creative. The food was beautifully presented and nothing short of delicious. Such distinct and wonderful flavors. This is not an inexpensive restaurant, but it does not pretend to be. This is THE restaurant to go to if you want the highest quality dining experience. I cannot wait to go back again."

  • "We wanted a quiet restaurant to catch up with friends on a saturday eve in Miami. This is a difficult challenge. They had been here before with prior chef. We are all experienced global diners. Expensive does not bother us if it is worth it. This was not. Food so small it was unidentifiable and we went away hungry and much lighter int he wallet. It was quiet and the Biltmore is gorgeous as ever. so the company saved the evening. We all had a good laugh over the food. Go for a drink and eat elsewhere. Very disappointing."

  • "We went here for our last night on our Honeymoon, we had the 5 course menu. The Oysters were out of this world, the Alaskan King crab was amazing, the Bucatini Pasta was perfect, scallops were a delight, and the deserts were just too many to mention and were all delicious. The only thing was that my Wife did not like the Pigeon, so unless you have had Pigeon before I would get something else. The service was the best I have ever received. The Chef came out and greeted us as we left and they even gave us a signed congrats card which was a classy touch."

  • "Palm D'Or's new chef us great. The ambiance created by the maitre de, Patrick, is continiously improving with recent addition of an excellent cheese cart and petit four selection (sorbet, madelienes, house made chocolates and marshmellows). Pricey, but one of the few miami restaurants worth the cost. Thanks for fifteen years of fond memories."
