    I expected a great meal and got a fantastic experience. The service was attentive and helpful. The menu and execution exceeded high expectations. The sommelier was more than helpful, and provided a great wine suggestion. Prices were on par with the quality. My wife and I can't wait to come back.

    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.

    Tucked away in a small hotel off the beaten path, this small restaurant is a gem if you like or are seeking an authentic French experience. It is not inexpensive, but then, we found it is in line with what one would expect to pay in Miami/south beach area. Great food. We will definitely return.

    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.

    CALMVIP
    Dined on 5/4/2014
    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.

    Dined on 3/29/2014
    This cozy little gem offers a classic French menu with carefully modernized dishes - e.g., the raw scallop was paired with crunchy cauliflower as well as a yummy cauliflower foam, and the foie gras comes in two preparations, a very classic pate and an innovative "bonbon". Ask for the 5-course tasting menu; also the wine pairing is excellent. The service is very personable, and the relatively small room is very elegant yet cozy.

    The men who run this place are French & are friendly and welcoming. Mgr actually helped with a DC-area stalwart, Auberge Françoise. Modern French executed superbly. Starters - both had the Scallops and Caviar (Cauliflower Blinis, Cauliflower Remoulade), greated white cauliflower with white remoulade with fresh scallops was a lovely white canvas for a dallop of caviar. The blinis were soft and creamy, and I couldve eaten 100. Main course I had the sous vide rack of lamb (Bok Choi, Mashed Potato Scented with Fresh Mint, Lamb Jus Reduction). Lamb was a huge portion and flavorful, and it was tender but not amazingly so. Wife had tender perfectly done lobster on a creamy risotto. A great meal and great atmosphere, escape from the energy of SoBe.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    After 23 years living here, trying 99% of the restaurants, I never wrote one single review; So yes if I take the time to write a few words on the PAT it is to mention the amazing quality of their food. You can taste that they are looking for the best fresh ingredients and they are not trying to cut corners in buying cheap products. Most of the restaurants tour have forgotten about this simple fact. Their chef, will them prepare some original dishes such as the vegetable tart with pea sherbet or coconut lemon thym ice cream. The major difference with other kitchen that usually try to mix up anything to be different this one was extremely well thought and you will still dream about the amazing flavors of the PAT long after your diner.

    This was the third year in a row we went to Pied a Terre for our anniversary dinner, again it did not disappoint. It is a real hideaway but right next to Lincoln Road. The main room feels like a private dining room and they now have a very nice outdoor seating area as well. The service is wonderful, with real attention given to every guest. The food was very good with a special note for the vegetable tart d'oeuvre which was tasty and different. We enjoyed the entire experience and will be back again for another special occasion.

    Seriously great food without pretension, as finely prepared and flavorful as any I've had in Miami or New York. The vegetable tart appetizer sounded a little tricky, with pea sorbet, but it was delicious and a fabulous, cold contrast to the rest of the dish. I'm allergic to shellfish, which was in the sea bass entree, and asked if they could prepare it some other way. I expected something adequate with a couple of teeny vegetables. Instead, I got a brilliant fish dish, as fine as anything I've had in Bernardin. The waiters are lovely, but need a bit more training. However, they are knowledgeable and eager to please. A fine evening!
