    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. We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday there and we had both a wonderful time!

    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!

    We went here for my birthday dinner - we found it on open table - and we were delighted and charmed and enjoyed every minute of it. Patrick and his team are actually from Paris and take great care in every aspect of the meal. The food was truly excellent. Don't miss out on the fois gras terrine. We are from Alsace (the french home of fois gras) so we are picky about it - it was exceptional; really some of the best we have had. The place is cozy and romantic and delicately upscale and was a welcome change from the "scene" of south beach. It's inside a little hotel so don't miss it! Go inside the lobby and it's up a tiny site staircase to the right. Oh, and as other reviewers have said, the butter is also worth the calories! ;-)

    We sincerely appreciated everything about the restaurant: the elegant and comfortable ambiance was an oasis and a great setting for a wonderful dinner. The menu had so many wonderful choices we couldn't decide, everything was inventive and special and more than lived up to our expectations. Fresh ingredients, high culinary standards and technique without heavy creams or thickeners used in traditional French cuisine. We indulged, had a great conversation with the proprietor who served along with the waiter, without pretense some other reviews misstated, but with passion and care about the restaurant. We were even happy to indulge in desert which we normally don't get excited about. This place is a gem, and we can't wait to go again.

    We got to Pied a Terre at around 9.50pm after a long day at Key West. We got a hearty welcome and excellent service even though it was nearly closing time. The special Pisco sour was very special and delicious. The food was delicious. The service was outstanding. One regret was that we did not have the opportunity to savour the degustation menu. We would have gone back unfortunately we went there on our last night in Miami.

    If you are looking for an extraordinary dining experience while in Miami Beach, make sure you check out Pied a Terre. It's a real gem. Located in a boutique hotel just off of Collins, still in the heart of it, Pied a Terre is an upscale dining treat. The food is thoughtful and expertly prepared. The service is not just attentive but impeccable. The wine list is unique and notable. A great venue for a romantic evening. It's not one of the garish, themed dining rooms offered at a million other spots in South Beach. Much quieter...more intimate. Sure take the time to enjoy the night life that South Beach has to offer, enjoy the well known dining and people watching hot spots; if you want the best meal in town go to Pied a Terre as well.

    The most impressive thing about this restaurant was the food. It was exquisite! Akin to eating in a Parisian restaurant. This alone would have us return. The restuarant allows corkage. However, we were met with condescending attitude by the sommelier when we arrived with $200 bottle (our cost) of fine Californian wine. He made us feel uncomfortable although we also ordered aperitifs and bottled water. The waiter made up for his attitude. It is a small place with an attractive decor. We ate on a Sunday night which was very quiet. So quiet we were compelled to speak slightly louder than a whisper. Raising the music would probably be helpful in detracting neighboring conversation.
