The best we ever ate in the US, only bested by two star locations in France. Service was impeccable. Room is cozy, intimate and staff if knowledgeable and friendly. Go for it- no hesitation!

    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!

    The whole Christmas dinner experience couldn't have been improved upon. We were so pleased with the whole experience. Table for 3 by the pool and lovely courtyard, the unusual wines which were so perfectly paired with the food and the beautiful,delicious food which was prepared without cream and very little butter. The proprieter was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and food. We thought we were back in Paris! Sigh...

    We arrived and were seated outside on the patio as there was a large party indoors. We were the only ones there for a 7pm reservation but online when I tried to book an 8pm, it said not available....there were plenty of open tables at that time. We sat near the road so you could hear the cars driving by but the trees around the patio covered the view which was nice. We had warm and cold fois gras, I recommend the cold, it was much better. My husband and I shared our dishes, he had the lamb, which could have been flavored a bit better but was extremely tender at medium rare. I had the duck med rare which was fantastic. Dessert was good but macaron was too hard due to faulty refrigeration. The waiter still charged us for it. I would recommend

    I have been privileged to have eaten at many of the great restaurants around the world, so I tend to set a fairly hight bar in judging high expectation places. My expectations were well met. Each course was beautifully conceived and executed. You know it is good when you can'y wait to offer a taste to your companion. It was like a Chinese ping pond game: try this, try that, try this...throughout the night. We were given a lovely table on the terrace overlooking the romantically lit pool. Patrick, the maitre 'd, sommelier, manager and major doom, took special pains to be sure we were totally satisfied.,,and we were. I promised I would write a review, and, it is my pleasure to keep my word.

    The attention to detail from the start was special. Soon after we were seated our friendly waiter, Didier brought a treat from the chef, a single bite-sized hors d'oeuvre of avocado flavored somehow with lemon and basil. Every bite thereafter was delicious. Try the vegetable tart, I can't describe how delicious it is!

    There's a lot to like and a little to be disappointed in regarding this restaurant. Charming boutique hotel with great story and history. The restaurant itself is a romantic , quaint place where you feel more like you were invited by a friend than a customer. Service is old school, professional and sincere (a rarity in SoBe). The food itself is where the restaurant disappoints a bit. The descriptions of the dishes and the pricing lead you to anticipate a truly special experience. Instead, the food doesn't deliver on its promise and is just "good", "decent".

    A lovely little jewel box of a restaurant; like stepping into a piece of Paris. The lighting while lovely, was too bright for such an intimate room and though the service was quite good, the food enjoyable and well-presented, it was hard not to feel somewhat robbed at $40 ish an entree after $30 to valet park. Dinner for 2 with a drink, moderately priced wine and no desert was near $250, which seems very pre-2005 to many of us not arriving in a Bentley.

    Sometimes you read reviews on Open Table or Trip Advisor and you find yourself wondering if they are really true. The reviews for this restaurant are spot on. Food is impeccably prepared with fresh ingredients often obtained on a seasonal basis only (eg wild mushrooms from Oregon only available for a couple of months per year). Service is so personal it feels like you are eating at a friend's home rather than at a restaurant. Diners are usually repeat customers since no advertising is done by the restaurant. The restaurant is not inexpensive but "you get what you pay for" certainly applies here. Make a night of it and you will have no regrets!

    We were going to Miami Beach from Weston for a party and we were looking to eat dinner first. I went to Open Table to find something a little different, there were so many to choose from. i liked the description and we gave it a shot. Well from the time we entered the hotel, the service, the meal... It was just off the charts! Great wine guy, (Patrick, who was actually french). I was blown away from beginning to end.
