The food and ambiance was
The food and ambiance was very good. Started off with a great civiche with shrimp, lobster and scallops. I had lamb chops which were excellent, and ordered a side of sauteed spinach. My husband had a veal chop which was breaded, pounded and had sauce and mozerella on it. It was served with a salad, and he enjoyed it as well.
For the price that you pay, I believe the service should have been much better. We had a waiter that spoke French and paid special to two tables of patrons who spoke French, and totally ignored my table and the table next to us.
I would return here if I had a different waiter.
Also, no one told us that if you park in the parking lot, you should get your ticket validated, and it would only cost $15 dollars.

Never too old to have fun!
What fun! We came for the food and stayed for the atmosphere. The food we had was very good....Flavorful steak tartar, melt in your mouth beef carpaccio and a very nicely done steak....paired with amazing truffled mashed potatoes ( it'll cost you!).The service was well choreographed, we felt very well taken care of. But what kept us there for after dinner cocktails was the great entertainment. They had a resident DJ playing some reaaly good music ( even for us 50-somethings) and then the bar antics.....I won't ruin it for you. Go have some fun!

Baoli Miami is the perfect combination of exquisite cuisine and impeccable decor.

Elegant, upscale dining
The food and service were exceptionally good, and the place has a trendy South Beach vibe. The main dining area is outside, under a canopy of trees. The only drawback is that the restaurant is quite expensive.

A dining experience to remember.
A dining experience to remember. If you plan on dining, please budget for the occassion. While the scence is hot and steamy, just like you would expect from South Beach, the culinary cuisne and prices remind me of sophiscated restaurant in Soho. The indoor/outside vibe is spectacular. White truffle dish, is amazaing...best sea bass..ever. The wait staff, and partrons are all beautiful, great anniversary, or special occassion restaurant. Too much $$ for a first date, unless you're Diddy, or new Dolphin Mike Wallace. Excellent experience.

Club wiht outstanding kitchen
In this restaurant I met an excellent combination of good food and vibes.
There was a cool crowd and uprisingly good food. superb sea bass with orange saus . Home made pasta with seafood really delicious.
Charming waiters. Would go back weekly when possible. Hope to find the same kitchen in Cannes this season.

Initially we were concerned
Initially we were concerned with our decison. The hostess had a sour puss from the moment we walked in. The bar tab was outrageous for two drinks and choice of premium liquor was limited. Once we were seated in the garden, which is lovely and optimum choice, there were not enough menus for the four of us. We were told because there were many large parties...which there were...but should never be a factor. Suprisingly the four appetizers I shared as my appetizer and and entree were delicous and the music was great. Even the corny ode to MJ was a blast. Not sure I would spend that kind of money at Biola again. They dont quite have the whole package yet.

AMAZING.... I'm a restaurant publicist in NYC and find it extremely hard to be impressed restaurants not in the city, much less not in New York. Baoli, Miami DID impress me in more ways than one
4/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
This may be typical of South Beach, but I didn't like it! A gratuity is added to our check, 18%, I think. But, an amount is left for an additional tip & it was made pretty clear that the "gratuity" goes to the restaurant & the "tip" to the server. I do not agree withthis & feel that the restaurant is abusing its customers.

we went to baoli in cannes several times so we knew what to expect. the miami location does not fully match the baoli style of cannes but still is very cool. food was very good, the truffle risotto exceptional. service was kind and careful and wine list is also good. overall a great dining evening at baoli.

Since February, I went to
Since February, I went to the Baoli 5 times and on different days of the week.
Risotto Tartufo is something divine. The wine list is excellent, a very cheerful and beautiful people.

Baoli is an amazong restaurant!!! Its super cool place to go. Food is delicious and the ambience is extraordinary.
The only problem is that they are allways full so you need to make reservation with pleanty of time and get there ON TIME.
I was 20 minutes after my reservation hour and they gave me other table and almost didn't sit.

This place is a bit pricey
This place is a bit pricey but really lots of fun. I'd go back in a heartbeat! Live DJ, smoke machines, sparklers, they even light the bar on fire. The place is wild!!!

The best place to eat and dance in Miami Beach. Good food and music!

A good experience
Our server was great very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered a sushi appetizer and the beet salad both were great choices fresh with lots of flavor. The main course we had the salmon and the rack of lamb. The lamb we ordered medium it came out rare, we sent it back and it came out well done the original request was medium. The manager came over acknowledge the issue and the third time it came out just right. The salmon was good cooked just right with nice flavors. We also had the truffle mashed they were very good and the chocolate cake for desert. The manager compensated us well for the inconvenience and made up for the challenges we experienced. We will return again when the weather is cooler and we can sit outside.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you are looking for a fun night out with dinner, dancing and music this is the place!
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
THE SEABASS WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! THE TWO ONLY COMPLAINTS I HAVE WAS THAT THE FOOD IS VERY PRICEY AND THEY SAT US OUTSIDE WITHOUT ASKING ME OR GIVING ME THE OPTION BECAUSE I WOULDVE PREFERRED TO BE INSIDE IT WAS VERY HOT AND I WAS BIT BY MANY MOSQUITOS WHILE SITTING THERE WHICH MADE MY DINING EXPERIENCE UNCOMFORTABLE. OTHERWISE THE FOOD WAS VERY DELICIOUS AND GOOD SERVICE.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great ambience, cool fashion
Great ambience, cool fashion show and good service once we got inside. The food was decent but did not meet our expectations.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice taste of Miami--French style
Definitely a place for those who want a hip trendy scene and lots of great food.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for Miami Spice and will definitely be returning. The food was excellent and so was the service. Make sure to have the chocolate cake for dessert.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a great spot for our bachelorette dinner. There was a DJ and the service and food were fantastic!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice and Trendy, but expensive
The overall ambience is very nice. Trendy, with beautiful people, nice decor (though a bit too posh for my taste) and the food was really good. DJ builds up the music as the night evolves and by the time you're finished with dinner it becomes vibrant and turns into a club.
I guess like in most Miami trendy places you have to be atentive of the suggestions of the waiters and/or someliers since they tend to "suggest" ordering the most expensive drinks (Champagne Magnum bottles, exclusive wines, etc.) and plates... and when you don't... then they kind of look at you as you were not meant to be there!
Would recommend it if one is looking for a trendy place, but beware of the cost... it is expensive.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing experience! Fun ambiance! Great service! Love that place!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here visiting from NYC with some family. Had an all girls night out. Started off with dinner appetizers and shared the $120 Truffle risotto in a Parmesan cheese roll..............It was divine! Totally worth it. Then the party started at 11pm (Friday). Then we ordered drinks and danced the night away. An amazing place to go in a group for dinner and drinks. I would totally recommend this place.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was Amazing!
From the welcoming hosts, to the cocktails & wines, and then the BEST Rustic Bouillabaisse, Hamachi Jalapeño roll with yuzu, and Sea Bass ever!!! My wife and I can't wait to go back.

My Favorite Restaurant
I absolutely love Baoli Miami. It's definitely my favorite restaurant in Miami because not only does it have an outstanding ambience but the food is just as impeccable. I went every single night for a week straight and ordered everything on the menu and everything I ordered just kept getting better and better. The waiters are very attentive, however, Valentin is my favorite waiter. I would highly recommend this place to everybody. If you're looking for a restaurant that offers good food with a good vibe, Baoli is the place to be!

Great Time with Friends
My friends and I had an awesome time, the food was great the atmosphere was great everything was great. My son is a pastry chef for Juvia and he told me not to forget to eat the dessert and it was amazing. I entend to go back with my family.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a really fun dinner here. Loads of fun and lots of birthdays going on around us. DJ was an added bonus.
Had a great deal going for their Miami Spice menu! All in all a great time!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun Fun Fun!
The place is pricey but I had expect it to be, small but delicious portions. If you go on the weekend, you aren't going to eat but to party and party you will. It was so much fun and it's definitely a hot spot to hang out with a group of friends or to just have fun with your significant other
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good looking people, great food, amazing for warming up before going clubs. 100% recommendable !!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bâoli was AMAZING! The ambiance was perfect and the good was delicious. It's on the pricey side, but I expected that. I saw the restaurant featured on an episode of The Real Housewives of Miami and had to try it! The only real complaint I have is that we made a reservation weeks in advance for a 10pm seating and still had to wait over an hour for our table. It was a busy Friday night, but still, we did have reservations. Other than that, the place was perfect! I'll be going here every time I visit South Beach.

Dinner Poor....Ambience Amazing!!!
Beautiful restaurant with an incredible ambience. Yet there was two negatives we experienced during our visit. First of all, we were seated a table that is located by the bar away from all other tables (away from all the great entertainment). Why would anyone place a table away from the rest in a corner where you cannot see or experience anything? Secondly, the food was not what we expected. The rice on the sushi rolls I ordered were over-cooked. Beside those two big negatives we did enjoy the moment we walked to the outside bar. We were able to experience the performance that sets the bar on fire which we consider unique and wonderful.

A restaurant that changes by time
Me and my wife had dinner at Baoli on oct 18 2013.
It's a very nice place, as long as the high noise isn't a problem for you. Tables with groups, music (that become louder as is getting late) and singles make the place a mix of restaurant with club. You can have dinner and after move for an "outside" area where you can have some drink and listening some good music. It's not a night club so it closes around 3am.
Regarding the dinner, was a pleasant experience, good wine, good service and an outstanding truffle risotto that cames from the kitchen inside of a huge cheese. They slice some more truffles and the hot plate melt the cheese while the waiter mix it all. That was amazing, very good experience.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, i loved it, great music good
Elegant and fashion people, great music selection , good to go with friends and enjoy asian food
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is the best restaurant
It is the best restaurant and night club in miami beach. Especially seafoods are great.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
It was a bit of a struggle
It was a bit of a struggle to get an appropriate table but this seems to be part of the "fun" of going to Baoli. Only once the manager realized that I was almost a French native, did things run smoothly.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Baoli was great fun if you are looking for a restaurant that turns into a nightclub. The people watching was great. The food was so-so. A table in the outside area would be fabulous!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hottest spot in SOBE
This is my favorite spot in SOBE. Excellent food, Amazing atmosphere, Best crowd in town!!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great ambience. Great food.
Atmosphere was very romantic and beautifully lit. Hamachi Jalapeño was good, nothing out of this world, but the Rustic Bouillabaisse was amazing and I'm not even a huge fan of seafood! Warm chocolate fondant was delicious. I will definitely go back to try more dishes. I heard their sea bass was great.
