    This is a Miami gem hidden just off Lincoln Rd. Mall. The Miami Spice menu with wine pairing a real awesome choice. It was a no brainer. Loved the ambiance of the restaurant. Very romantic and the setting reminds me of La Cage (Robin Williams' version). :)

    this is not old school French food- nor is it nuvous French. it's fresh herbs, updated recipes, layered taste profiles- and good sized servings! without any pretension. we were 15 minutes early for our reservation and were seated immediately. after perusing menu, Patrick came to our table to answer any questions. he listened to what we liked in red wines to suggest a white. he suggested wines at several price points. the wine list is phenomenal. he also knew all ingredients and how each dish was prepared. both of our meals ( apps, main, dessert) were amazing. we will return when we come back to Miami.

    lived on the beach for 4 years now and just found this place. If you want "the scene", don't bother. If you want to dine where there is attention to detail, exquisitely plated dishes with taste to match, this is the place to go. Sultry jazz singer in room next door just adds to the ambience.

The quality and preperation of the food and the service was impresive. I hope in the future they are able to upgrade their location and decoration to reflect the excellence of the restaurant. I look forward to returning.

    This restaurant is a Hidden Diamond located in the small Cadet Hotel of Miami Beach. My wife and I went to this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The restaurant as the hotel was small but very cozy. Arriving early we could choose the best table in the place, which was cooked perfectly and outrageously comfortable seats. The Waiting Staff was magnificent, all from the Busboy to the Host offered an excellent service. The food matched our high expectative, simply delicious. The perfect place to taste the Haute Cuisine. And last but no less the ambiance was fabulous, inside the restaurant very quite, but we can listen the music coming from the piano bar. I will definitely come back to this restaurant and I highly recommended it.

    One of the best restaurants my wife and I have been to. Small, elegant and quiet. We were very surprised to find this type of restaurant in Miami. French food and wine. The food was exceptional - I recommend the foie gras as an appetizer (terrene style) and the risotto. The wine list was had many small producer wines including champagnes. Overall, a special night.

    Very nice dinner and intimate ambiance. Food as good as in a REAL French restaurant. Try the foie gras terrine, one of the best I ate in the United States. The rack of lamb was also so tasty and well cooked. And the french bred... you can die for. It's a real gem, because in Miami it's not easy at all to find a good restaurant. Very interesting wine list. Service was professional and attentive. The boss is doing is job with passion. If you go there it's impossible to be disappointed.

    I was very excited to dine at this restaurant. A friend of mine had gone to the restaurant two nights prior and said "it was amazing". I was very impressed with the server, Diddier. He was vary knowledgeable and definitely added to the overall experience of the visit. It's a smaller sized restaurant which gives it a very personal atmosphere. It's classy but not too overwhelming. I had an amazing experience and would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for something special.

    We loved the atmosphere - inside it's lovely and romantic. The food was absolutely incredible. All fresh ingredients, with everything served made in the kitchen. Reasonable wine list - many bottles between $40-$60! Loved the foie gras and vegetable tart as starters. Amazing preparation of the rack of lamb - delicious. My husband also loved the risotto with fresh seasonal mushrooms. The deserts - like the rest of the menu hard to choose between dishes. The deconstructed vacherin was delicious and fresh tasting with the berries and homemade ice cream and sorbet. Run, don't walk to this restaurant.

As a French, I can tell the food was authentic and also a little better than what you can find in France as the cuisine is both traditional and modern.

    This is a small restaurant, inside an hotel, not so easy to find but it is a hidden "pearl" The food is excelent, tasty, very well cooked and with the most fresh ingredients. Wine list is also very good and you can pair with the dishes by the glass. It's a pity that you have only indoor seating....but it is worth trying if you want to have an excelent meal. At the end the check was a pleaseant surprise!
