No circus, just great cuisine
A rare gem in Miami/Coral Gables - tasteful, modest location with outstanding service and excellent cuisine. The lack
of an "entertainment factor", is refreshing. Pascal's continues to focus on fresh, delicious food and great service. A real pleasure!

Best for souflle and small portions
I was ready to give the place 3 stars but changed it after dessert. The souffle' is a sure show stopper and not to be missed. We ordered the duck teraine app, Lamb entree and the grouper (substituted the striped bass not in season). nothing outstnading and small portions but with great flavor. Every entree is $38 plus for a very small portion. We would not return except the souffle is outstanding.

Very nice small restaurant
We had a great evening. The place was full and tables are a bit close to each other but the service was excellent, good wines even by the glass, and food was very good.
The bill was very high though.

Best French Restaurant in Miami
Pascal's, though small, is definitely one of the best and most consistent French restaurants we have found in the Miami and South Miami area. The diver scallops with short ribs, gnocchi appetizers and dessert soufflés cannot be beat. The prices are high, but the experience completely worth it.

Pascal's Perfect 10
My husband and I went to Pascal's on Ponce for an anniversary dinner, because we wanted a French theme. This restaurant far exceeded our expectations! The decor is simple throughout the restaurant; the ambiance is cozy and chic. The servers are polite and professional. The food was beyond delicious, and truly gourmet and upscale. The only problem we had was that we had to wait a while for the food to be served, but once it came out, the presentation made up for it! The food choices are genuinely French, and we were pretty shocked at how "French" like the restaurant really was -- the food, the location, the tables, everything!

Was a very nice experience
Was a very nice experience - found them on Zagat list of 10 best restaurants in Miami and wanted to try. Souffle is to die for, that was one of the main draws for us and it did not disappoint. The only thing is that the restaurant is very small and the noise level was very high for such a small room.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excelente, as always
The food is outstanding, consistency all time. I'd been here several times different ocasion. You will never be wrong , recommending Pascals on ponce

Pascals is a real treat. The staff is friendly and attentive ,and the interior is cozy and welcoming.
The food is nothing short of incredible. The chefs creations are inspired and prepared to perfection.
I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind paying a bit more for a mrmorable dinning experience.

great dinner, charming venue
The food was delicious and the service great, the ambiance charming for this small but very friendly yet elegant restaurant. Only minus is tjat it is a bit pricey. We had a great time.
7/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had a great time, the food was very good but between cources it took to long. We waited 35 min for our first plate and anothr 40 min for our second plate

The restaurant was packed.
The restaurant was packed. The food was excellent, the best in Miami. THe service was good, but not vvery good, I don't know if it was because it was so full that they took a long time.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
consistently good. server was less than personable.been many times with great service. this was fair. food always good. louder than usual. better Miami Spice this year

Great Place to Dine!
My wife and I went to Pascal for our 40th wedding anniversary. The place is nice, food terrific and the service es exceptional!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went to Pascal's on Ponce for my anniversary and they really made the night a special one! One course after another was unbelievably delicious! The cheese soufflé and the chocolate soufflé are absolute must haves! The wine list is amazing. The service is so good. All in all, it was an incredible experience. My new favorite place for a special occasion in Miami!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
As good as Manhattan
This is an upscale, high priced restaurant, with great food and service. If you are looking for value on the high end, this is it. No bargains - just the best. The other customers dress down - it is a shame, this could be truly upscale were it anywhere but Miami.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, too crowded and LOUD!
It's a pitt, this place has amazing food but the service and ambiance it's not the best since the tables are too close to each other, it's very crowded and loud. I guess it's not the fault of the servers, but it does not make their job any easier. Great food!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food /service yet crowded
Pascals is not romantic though because the space is too small
And overcrowded with its seating. It is loud after 8 pm .If they had more space it would be a
Very romantic place too.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a tremendous meal! Had tasting menu with wine pairings.... Everything was absolutely outstanding. Service was amazing (Thanks Mario!). Definitely will be back!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fine Traditional French Dining
A moderately small restaurant with a maitre'd who oversees the room. Service is appropriately attentive. Food portions are moderate and of the highest quality and well prepared. A find dining experience of subtle elegance.

A joy to visit. And that pistachio soufflé was
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Whether you order from the Miami Spice menu or off the menu the food is always wonderfully prepared. This why we have been a regular customer for over 20 years.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Thank You Chef
The menu is amazing. Our food was exceptional. The bouillabaisse was complex, full of all the right flavors and surprisingly light. A definite order again item. The duck was lovely and the veal as well. Our waiter recommended a nice pinot noir ( 2008 Abiouness ) - very good call. The service was attentive, there when we needed them. Take your time at Pascal's and enjoy superb food and service.
I guess I liked it...a lot

Best cheese souffle
We tried some desserts and all were amazing!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for business meetings!
Had a really great lunch here on 2 separate occasions and the service was spot on. Attentive without being interruptive. Food is excellent! The mussels are the best I've had in Miami! Delicious and def a hidden gem in CG.

Coral Gables Gem
I had not been to Pascal's in a few years....it was as wonderful as I remember it. Service was excellent, food was delicious and creatively prepared. My friends were very happy with the wine (I don't drink). I will make sure to return soon!! I highly recommend Pascal's....:-)
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Arguably one of the best French
Arguably one of the best French restaurants in Miami. There's something to be said about a chef-operated restaurant!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I believe Pascal's on Ponce is the best restaurant in South Florida for French food. Could be the best in the United States.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, best service in town, I had duck confit for dinner and it was amazing and the paring with Cote du Rhone is perfect!!!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I have passed this place hundreds of times while on our way to work until one day we decided to give it a try for lunch. One word, "outstanding!"
We've been back three times already. Superb food, impeccable service, and a wonderful ambience. We love this place.

Terrific food, wonderful halibut
Terrific food, wonderful halibut dish in a delicious French sauce.solid wine list.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pascal's is one of those dependable places. Always good, maybe not daring or cutting-edge, but with a good French menu, an assortment of specials, and a nice, if small, wine list. And the chef always excels.
10/10/2013 5:00:00 PM
Superb meal and Excellent Service!
Meal was excellent. An amazing amuse bouche came out to start; it was a bouillabaisse beignet. If this was on the menu I would have ordered it as my main plate it was that good. For an appetizer we started with a foie gras terrine which was excellent. My wife had the beef tenderloin with a mushroom sauce and it was tender and cooked to perfection. I had the special which was lobster risotto and it was outstanding. Creamy and full of Maine lobster flavor!
For dessert our server had accidentally placed an order for a bittersweet chocolate souffle instead of the Grand Marnier one we had ordered, but needless to say every last bit of it was gone within minutes. It was one of the best souffles I've had!
We'll definitely be back soon!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment we arrived an outstanding dining experience. The service was impeccable. The quality of the food was outstanding. The plating was exquisite. The flavors were well balanced and well executed. Each course was creative and innovative.
Wine pairings were perfect to the food, each building on the other. In a word one of our best dining experiences. We will definitely return.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pascal keeps his high standards
Somehow, this restaurant is able to always present a meal that is a delight. Great service, and creative and delicious food choices. It becomes the go-to place for family celebrations, and important business meals. The presentation of the meals is beautiful, and the fresh ingredients are delicious. The place is small, and every detail gets Pascal's attention.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Food and ambiance
The quality and taste of the food is excellent. The service is also very good. The cheese soufflé and their dessert soufflés are excellent.
The restaurant itself is a bit small and there is very little privacy. The sound level is higher than desired and so is the price tag for the meal. Yet I recommend it, if your wallet can bear it.

Great French food in Coral Gables
Tried French Spice menu and was very happy with the selection. The food was delicious!

I will definitely come back there.

we tried this restaurant for our anniversary dinner and it was wonderful! We ordered the tasting menu with wines and were pleased throughout the whole dining experience. Service was outstanding, food was amazing, and we had a somewhat private table that was beautifully set. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Pascal's on Ponce
One of our fav's…delightful service from the beginning…the welcome, pouring the wines, explaining the specials, giving us time to order and properly spacing the orders.
The Aussie lamb chops, Bouillabaisse, Salmon were wonderful and cooked perfectly…beet salad, special…other first courses/appetizers were very good too.
Souffles for dessert….and after 2 1/2 hours, we all left with a return visit promise.
They really deserve the high Zagat rating and other notable reviews!!
One of the best service oriented restaurants in Miami!!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our favorite restaurant. The food is always excellent. The souffle is better than the best restaurants in Paris. The special matinis on the weekend are also excellent . It is the best quality for food in Miami. The Service is very attentive. We have enjoyed every meal we have had there.

Paradice on Ponce
Ponce de Leon came to Florida to fid the fountain of youth, never did, but if he come back to tth he street named after him, he will find one of the top places in Miami area. We had one night layover between planes and of all the choice for a foodie, we came back to Pascals for its great food and service. I may have come just for the parmesan soufflé, but my wife's green bean salad was great. I had scallops, she grouper and we loved our dinner-and would recommend it highly.
