The mussels are the BEST in
The mussels are the BEST in Miami...plump, buttery and succulent. Service was good. Wine list (by the glass) leaves something to be desired. Great for outdoor dining. It was windy and chilly, but we still enjoyed being outside because they have good heaters.

I have been going to La Goulue
I have been going to La Goulue for years, as a visitor to Miami from CA it was the first place that I would dine upon my arrival. Now that I live in Miami I go to the restaurant
very often. I took friends last week (our last visit) and they want to make it a weekly occassion.

Great food and improved service
We have had one of the best Easter lunch ever, great food and service we enjoyed the special lamb dish, nice bottle of rosé wine and macaroons with ice cream to die for. Service has notably improved here lately .. The only issue with their manager short Bonaparte look a like Russian guy never smiles and always rude.
Also notice to Bal Harbour shops why are you close on Easter......

Great little French restaurant
Great little French restaurant in the Bal harbor shopping center. Great menu, reasonable prices and the food was excellent. Try it, you will like it and the people watching if you sit outside is notable to say the least

Good restaurant in Bal Harbour.
Good restaurant in Bal Harbour. IT does get crowded so I would suggest Making reservations. I think IT is more a lunch type restaurant than dinner.

My birthday celebration was absolutely perfect! My two daughters and I had a reservation but had to wait approximately 15 minutes as the place was extemely full. We ordered pink champagne by the glass. it was cold, delicious and surprisingly a large quantity. Our eclectic cravings were satisfied with the Chef's superb fois gras, a hot dish of escargot adorned with mini puff pastry, a scrumptious Croque Madame with egg atop and the beef carpaccio plate accented with truffle oil. Our server was well informed and had impeccable timing. Believe me, I will not wait another year to go back!!

Last Dinner in Miami
On the last night of our long weekend in Miami, my family and I had the pleasure of dining at La Goulue. Aside from the fine service we received, it was really great for my wife and I to enjoy the great french selection of appetizers/courses for adults while our four year old daughter had wonderful simple choices from the children's menu as well. Visiting Miami and dining at La Goulue were two firsts for us, but it will not be our last. Highly Recommend!

Great food . Nice outdoor
Great food . Nice outdoor seating. Great service. They went out of their way to make my wife's birthday an excellent experience. The host was accommodating to a seating request and very personable. A complimentary dessert with a sparkler was a great touch and conclusion to an excellent evening at La Goulue.

Best French in South Florida
Superb, tasty top notch French cuisine. Indoors is a brasserie type decorand there is plenty of outdoor patio seating. Service was spotty, but that is usually always a problem in restaurants where the tip is included in the check.

a twist of Paris
Great food, great ambience, good price for value. The young hostess is a bit gauche, but nothing that would cast shadows on the overall experience.

Lovely French Bistro
We enjoyed a leisurely lunch at this charming French restaurant including fabulous escargot en croute, poached salmon cooked perfectly,meaty crab cakes and a lovely beet salad. The cappacinno was excellent! You will not be disappointed. It is located in the Bal Harbour Shopping Center, east side and closer to Saks on the first floor. We have highest regard for this authentic and talented chef!

Oh,La,La for La Goulue
This is an exceptional restaurant that always creates a marvelous dining experience. Their food is exceptional. The wait staff is always gracious and accomodating. And, the ambiance makes you feel like you are actually in France, eating in a bistro. Try their trout almondine or their exquisite mussels and french fries. Save room for one of their deliciously decadent desserts. I eat at La Goulue on a regular basis, and always leave feeling pampered and priviledged.

Romantic Outdoor Seating
What could be nicer than a covered outdoor restaurant in beautiful Bal Harbour? The food and service are great.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
One factor we did find annoying was that a patron was allowed to smoke a cigar while people were eating nearby. It seems that the restaurant should not allow that as it was terribly uncomfortable to smell the smoke with the meal.

La Goulue is a LOVELY restaurant!!
I eat at La Goulue quite often. I can depend on always having a delightful dinner , in a nice setting. My servers are consistently attentive and gracious. Try their Trout!! I always have their steamed spinach as an accompaniment. And, if you have any of their desserts, you will feel like you are tasting a heavenly delight. The ambiance of this restaurant is in symmetry with the Bistro style cuisine. La Goulue is always a good choice!!
