    I ordered scallops and they were good but when you pay $40 the dish (that only comes with four small scallops, three small carrot pieces and threes small beans) plus tax and tip, you expect the scallops to be veryyy good not just good. Would not recommend.

    We ate here because it was rated "fit for foodies". I would not go so far, but it was decent. The sauce was nearly identical, no matter what the dish. And no sauce spoons! It had a cozy feel, the servers were enthusiastic and pleasant. The desserts were delicious.

    This was our first visit to pascals on ponce and we will go back for sure. We were greeted by a friendly and gracious host,who added a table so as to seat an additional member of our party. Our reso was for four people and we arrived with five. The food was excellent and the service was equal. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. We all loved whatever we ordered. There is good reason for them to be included in the top 50.

    We go to Pascal's often, as the food is always excellent and the service is very good. Brought neighbors for their first visit to the restaurant. They were awed by the quality and portions served on the Miami Spice menu and really enjoyed what was exceptional table service. Pascal's snagged two more regulars.

    We chose Pascal to celebrate my husband`s birthday. If you expect nice romantic romantic with great french food, look some place else. Even though we came during the week, place was packed and very noisy, got small table by the kitchen entrance 10 inches away from other diners. Food was good but nothing to wow. Lots of tables were celebrating something, we heard songs and little cakes with candle going to the table, the restaurant knew it was a special occasion for us but our waiter didn`t bring anything. If it was anything for extra charge they could offer it, it was disappointing. We will not go back, in this price range there are lots of restaurants in Miami to choose from which offered much better experience in the past.

    Small but better than average decor. Our crispy lobster bisque was slightly thin and average in taste. The crispy duck was over cooked and therefore the meat was very dry. The pistachio crime brûlée was tasty, well made and the best part of the entire meal. The service was warm, professional, attentive and overall excellent.the noise level was very high.

    Pascal's remains the place for the best food in Coral Gables, but the service level has grown increasingly hectic. The front of the house is not run anywhere near as well as the kitchen, and has been declining once we lost George as the maitre'd. Tables are placed as tightly as ever, and one can't help but meet ones table neighbors, but the bumping and pushing by the wait staff seems to have increased. I have foresaken Saturday night meals at Pascal's. It's just too popular.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    Our party of 6 adults was warmly greeted by the staff on a recent Saturday evening.. Coral Gables parking was the usual inconvenience, but not unexpected. Our waiter was professionally polished as he carefully explained that while they offered a limited menu for the Miami Spice promotion, the portions were smaller and the signature lobster bisque was strained of any actual lobster meat. He pointed out several regular menu items that we would like much better than the Miami Spice offerings. We have enjoyed numerous other Miami Spice promotion meals at participating local restaurants without the up-selling. As it turned out, the waiter was correct. Small, lower quality meals. But, for my money, there are many near by better options.

    Food was amazing specially the cheese souffle'. The portions were on the small side and pricey but the service was great.Their Miami Spice menu is also a bit pricey, most everything was an additional price. Perfect place for special occasions or just when you're in the mood for really great food !

    Good food as always, service was good, but waiter had this irritating habit of calling all of us young lady and young man it was offensive. We did the Miami Spice Menu,the twice baked gruyere soufflé outstanding & the highlight of the evening. The entrée of duck was very good, as was the beef, the deserts were inconsistent. Meaning two of us ordered the berries one came lovely light browning & cookie, the other did not. I ordered the cheese plate extra $, it did not come in on time, the waiter was extremely insistent I take it to go, although his mistake for the bad timing. Don't take a cheese plate to go regardless, just have them remove it from your bill instead its a waste of UR $ it did not travel well.

    From appetizers to dessert the meal was outstanding. We ordered from the Miami Spice menu and upgraded one of our appetizers to the pate. Great choice, it was amazing. We also had to order the Grand Marnier Soufflé to finish the delightful meal. The duck dish was delicious as well as the hanger steak. All in all a wonderful evening.

    Pascal's never disappoints - always delights and in my estimation is the best of too few french restaurants in Miami. We enjoyed the Miami Spice menu - with main course options and portion sizes from the a la carte menu. My favorite: the cold parmesan "souffle" first course was a melt- in-the mouth delight.

    We decided to try the Miami Spice menu. The food was good, but we were expecting excellent. The cheese souffle hinted more of parmesan than of Gruyere but was tasty and very light. The duck confit was a bit over cooked. The flank steak was perfect. The chocolate souffle was scrumptious. The service was impeccable and the ambience was chic. All in all a good experience but was hoping for over the top.

    We had a group of 8, and had a nice round table large enough, but small enough so that we could all talk to each other in a nice quiet atmosphere. The waiter was more than attentive, and the food was great. The only problem we had was that we could not get separate checks. The bloody mary was very good, but the mohito was not, so they replaced it with a very good cosmopolitan. I would definitely go back. Bobbi

    Pascal's never disappoints. All aspects of the dining experience from arrival to departure were executed with a most high degree of quality and professionalism. Dishes were prepared and served with precision timing. But I might add that the food is devoured faster than anticipated, since it is so delicious! Each of us ordered a different appetizer and entree, so we all got to have a taste many menu items, all of which were exceptional. The guava souffle is the perfect finish!

    I have driven by Pascal's dozens of times but we finally went there for the Miami Spice menu. The offerings came from their normal menu and were excellent, authentically French. I had a hard time choosing between the Mediterranean Bass and the duck confit but finally opted for the latter since I love duck so much. It was well cooked and paired with mushrooms. All in all it was a great experience.

    A 70th birthday only comes once so we chose to celebrate in Miami. With a little research on the "best" restaurants, we chose Pascal's on Ponce and were delighted. We chose the special, Breem, a fish we'd never encountered before, and it was perfectly prepared. Dessert, a caramel concoction with a candle in it and French Happy Birthday playing, was the frosting on the cake, so to speak.

    Pascal's on Ponce has been a mainstay of the Coral Ganles food scenes for more years than I can remember and still maintains its creativity and, more importantly, it's ambience. The food is great and has not succumbed to the glitzy surroundings so prevalent in Miami. These are nice people serving great food. A hint - try Monday' s when there is no corkage fee.

    Pascal has been one of the top chefs on the Miami scene for almost 20 years. His refined French cuisine is based on classic standards and he continually updates his menu choices with local fresh ingredients and flavors. His special of a seafood boudin (sausage) using lobster, crab and scallops is sublime. It is almost as light as a quinelle, but heartier and more flavorful. His duck confit features moist and tenter meat under a crispy skin. He was among the first to combine scallops with short ribs and his olive oil poaced salmon is exceptional.
