French
Hailing from France, Brand Essence owners Aymeric Clemente and Remi Laba teamed up in February 2008 to create a restaurant that is wholly French Mediterranean in atmosphere and cuisine. The ambiance is reminiscent of a bustling Parisian bistro. Classic decor and architecture is paired with chic and bold artwork as well as lively music. With a relaxed yet sexy vibe, you will feel as if you've escaped to Europe if only for a day.

No vale lo que cuesta. Los mozos son muy ruidosos y hablan muy fuerte al lado de la mesa, se ríen como si estuvieran en su casa. Cero recomendable. Por lo que pagamos prefiero comer en cualquier otro lugar, con mejor atención, menos ruido y mas respeto.

No fuimos atendidas , nos dijeron que sus reservaciones para open table no estaban funcionando y que no tenían una mesa para nosotras, la hostess no fue nada amable simplemente dijo no tienen mesa y es todo , tuvimos que cenar en Juvia donde nos atendieron sin problema alguno.
Esperamos que no hagan ningún cargo ya que pidieron nuestra tarjeta en open table para hacer la reservación, lástima teníamos muchas ganas de conocer el lugar y no se pudo por las fallas técnicas .

Arrived late . Hostess was snotty and had a terrible attitude but finally accommodated us. Food was terrific. Service was spectacular, the scene was energetic and at times a little “ cheesy “ but still a lot of fun ... overall as expected .. Advice try to make a late reservation and make a. Night of it

Our experience was awful! This wasn’t our first time here. Several have been here over a dozen times. The bar was not busy for a Thursday night and the DJ was not playing. They had a band there that did not know any 80s or 90s hits whatsoever! They were singing lyrics from a cell phone and they could not hold a tune! We couldn’t believe our ears!! The hostess greeted us at the door as we had a reservation and we told her we were just going to have drinks. She hesitated to even seat the 8 of us because we were only drinking and the bar wasn’t even busy at 10 pm. Let me also preface this by saying that they close at midnight on Thursdays!! She then checked with her management and then decided it was OK to seat us! We spent $500 on drinks and it was the most awful experience that we had over our weekend. We were talking it up to our friends saying how much fun that Bagatelle Miami is! We will never go there again. We were celebrating two special birthdays and we couldn’t have been more disappointed, annoyed and irritated by the lack of service and entertainment! What happened to this place?? Do NOT go here and waste your time and money.

Bagatelle is a good place when you know with certainty that'll they'll have their entertainment team. Other than that, its very overprice for what they offer. The service is not up to par and there's nothing special about the food. The only good day is Tuesday, don't spend your money any other day.

Very bad experience. We did not like the treatment, they was rude with me, my mom, wife and brother beside the fact that we have ordered an option that the price was not in the menu and the waiter also did not inform. The excuse was that our option had a market price, but I am not from USA and I do not obligate to know the price. So, after this we payed all the due amount.

In the end, after the bill payed, once we all 5 together decided to not pay the full service for the bad quality of service, they started to talk that we could not leave the place and one of the guys suggested to call the police. Very bad situation and all this discussion was for $ 13 - the total amount was $ 713 and we have payed $ 700.

Finally when we left the place, one of the security guards - a Brazilian one (as we are) - sad for us: “Volta para seu país e anotem os nomes para nunca mais voltar aqui” - what’s the meaning of this? “Come back to your country and take note of all the names of them to never come back again”

It is an unacceptable situation with or with any guest.

It is not a request..... definitely, we will never come back in this restaurant.

Truffle pizza, sliders, creme brûlée, the fish were all amazing. Out cups was never empty and there is so much attention that is given. My wife and I loved every second at Bagatelle. You are there to enjoy your company and the ambiance it’s not a place that you should look how much each thing is. If that is what you then, this place is not for you. I will indeed go back in another special occasion. Thank you Greg for the amazing experience.

Valentines special was horrible. I felt like I got robbed when I left. The caviar appetizer to share was really for 1 person barely. The truffle pasta came with about 4 to 5 TINY TINY pieces of ravioli. Then the entree was stuffed lobster. Basically it was just a lobster shell with a mix of potatoes and 3 total pieces of lobster, but I mean tiny little pieces of lobster. Whole dinner was a TOTAL waste of a valentines dinner I will never step foot in that place again and will tell everyone I know.

So much fun! Impeccable service, delicious food, and friendly and attentive staff. We had an early reservation (8pm). If you reallly want to have some fun make your reservation for 10pm! The salade bagatelle is a must, with black truffle pizza, and the Louis xv chocolate dessert!

Nous sommes allés le 5/2/2019 a 3 personnes et effectivement nous avons comme prévu maximum 2h à table avant que les personnes du 2 eme service n arrivent, nous avons eu le temps de manger et nous n avons pas senti la pression de personne pour nous mettre dehors de la table enfin du moins de nous faire déplacer vers le BAR, le service a été parfait et plusieurs personnes sont venues nous conseiller même en français certains plats et vins donc nous vous recommandons bagatelle surtout le mardi et pour la nourriture et pour l ambiance juste pendant/après le 2 eme service, bon je suppose que je n ai pas besoin de précisé que tous cela a un prix...donc si vous comptez dépenser 50$ par personne passer votre chemin et ne leurs faites pas perdre leurs temps.

Great restaurant for a special event. We had a lot of fun.
Nevertheless, we have been disappointed as the reception requested that we came earlier because the restaurant was full. It was not the case at all! We were the 2nd client. Came back 1hour later, the restaurant was 50% full...

Food and ambiance was good. Service was very poor. The server messed up the order for the table behind me as well as my own table. He had a bad attitude, even after messing up. Offered no apologies whatsoever. Seemed eager for us to leave. The server assistant was a very nice lady.

I love this place! Atmosphere and food are awesome. I made a reservation and called and didn’t make it until 45 minutes later. They didn’t hold our table but we went to the bar. We were there 2.5 hours and they said they’d seat us if someone didn’t show. Another coupe who came after us got seated two hours later instead of us. Still great time just wish we could have sat at some point.

Great night to celebrate a friend’s birthday. It was a quiet night at the restaurant and wasn’t too crowded but we all had a good time regardless. Everyone thought their dishes were well prepared and tasty. Look forward to our return. Not a fan of leaving a credit card to guarantee the reservation. Seems they think they are more special than they really are. Remember, this is Miami, NOT the French Riviera.

It's a cool restaurant, with animated music and good atmosphere. But I didn't like the fact that we can't stay seated more than 2 hours. We went on a Thrusday evening and the place had only a few tables occupied, but even though we had to pay the check and leave the table free after 2 hours seated for nobody. The food was good, and the prices were high.

I really wanted to like this place. It came recommended by a friend who’s a local. We went with a group of 6 ppl. Upon arrival we received a ton of attitude from the hostesses. Not a good start but we were hopeful it would get better. It was ok. The food was mediocre except for the octopus and gnocchi which was great. The service was decent but I couldn’t help but feel rushed. Later in the evening they played house music. Maybe just isn’t my vibe.
