The day was sunny and warm, the service was excellent and the food delicious. It was a wonderful way to celebrate my 71th birthday. We were joined by my widowed sister who had honeymooned at the hotel 52 years ago. Needless to say it was a totally enjoyable experience for all. Hope to return soon.

Open Air Beauty!! Amazing food!!
This was a delightful place to each lunch when first arriving to South Beach. I wish we had asked to be seated upstairs because that is where the view definitely was - we didn't think to ask until it was too late. Despite that, it was an incredible experience. I got one of their Mediterranean dishes, which was scrumptious. I loved the hand cleaning towels brought out in a shell to freshen up and I also loved the open air kitchen. It was a vibrant but relaxed restaurant with beautiful people and lovely food. Was pricey, but we knew that going in. Worth it for a special treat with that special someone!! Wonderful food! Wonderful view! Wonderful for a beautiful outside type of day!

Don't miss this place when in Miami Beach!!! Awesome setting- ask for upper deck-fantastic service!! Very good food!!! We were lucky enough to catch the 'once in a Bleau moon' price fixe special- offered once a month... Excellent choices, food and value!!! This is a wonderful place to reconnect with loved ones and bask in the beauty that is true Miami Beach!!! Loved it!!!

Nice venue, but as everything
Nice venue, but as everything on the beach, it was over-priced.

The food was amazing
My husband took me for a birthday brunch and the food was excellent. The lobster roll, calamari, and burger were all very flavorful. The drinks were also very good. Our only disappointment was the service. Our server had a bit of an attitude when we asked her about the menu (as if we were supposed to know the answers). We could have done without the sarcasm and snob attitude. Everyone else however, the hostess and food runners, were all very nice.

Good food and the head waiter Fermin provided good service as well. But it was the beach and ocean view and total outdoor atmosphere that made the experience even more special.

We ate at this restaurant during 2013 Miami Spice. I disliked my calamari appetizer, loved my bass entrée, and felt my chocolate dessert was simply ok. The view made this restaurant memorable.

Relaxing lunch at La Cote
So, I was very hesitant to make a reservation due to all the negative reviews i have read. Either we just were lucky, or something happened with the other reviewers because we really enjoyed the food AND had EXCELLENT service. I had the Octopus appetizer, my friend/client had the flatbread. Both were wonderful, fresh and beautifully presented. We took our time, but the food arrived quickly and service was on top, but not smothering. We really enjoyed it and would definitely go back. Highly recommend.

Nice sea view and quiet atmosphere
We discovered this restaurant using the Miami Spice package, which was very good. Highly recommended for fine light and creative food. Limited wine list, but our pick was excellent. Helpful and discreet service. It is a very good deal well hidden by the beach of Fontainebleau hotel.

Fountain Bleu Ambience
We were staying in a hotel two doors up and saw Al Roker at the fountain bleu every year on the Today Show and wanted to see it for ourselves. The hotel and all it's amenities are tip top, Just walking through the lobby on your way to La Cote is an experience; two drinks and a picturesque scene and we're in another world.
The food is excellent, very fresh and presented proudly. The server was a little overwhelmed managing the three tables, perhaps he was flying solo for the first time, no matter the food and ambience rue the day. A great experiences, not to be missed among the main restraints at Fountain Bleu...I wish I could live that way every day.
