This place is closed. Showed up twenty minutes early and door was locked. Looked through window and place looked a mess. Called repeatedly for next hour, and all I got was a message that the number was unable to answer my call; not that Colette restaurant was unable to do so, but the number I dialed. Either the restaurant or Open Table should be aware of changes in schedule by contacting the guests, or both of them should. Very disappointed.

I made arrangements for a business meal for my board members while at our board meeting. This restaurant had good reviews, seemed reasonably priced, and seemed quaint. Half of my party got there first. When I finally got there, they said, "the restaurant is closed for construction." I thought they were joking, but it was true. There was nothing to inform of this happening and of the restaurant being closed. Luckily, there was space available for a party of 8 at a restaurant on the corner, Ceviche, which was very good. Too bad.

Sorry you didn't make it. Too much good food out there when your menu never changed and the food remained mediocre.

A small bistro with both indoor and sidewalk dining, Collette is charming and casual chic. It has a typical bistro menu. I read a review which said wasn't French enough. Huh? It depends on where you eat in France. The owner and staff are lovely. The menu is not ambitious, but what they have is well done. I'd go again.

Adele is the best. Knowledgeable, smart and French. She is married to a Gringo with tats. I only mention this because dining at Colette is like dining with family....if the Chef was fantastic and your server spoke French. Bon appetite!

I received a gift certificate for this from a timeshare. I thought, I might as well take advantage of the offer. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality and taste of the food. I am not a French food person, but this was wonderful. Both my wife and I enjoyed the food and the nice employees. I don't remember the names of the servers, but both were very attentive.

The ambience and food were good although I did not consider the food particularly French. Would have been nice to have beer or mixed drinks instead of just wine since two of our party don't drink wine. Staff were pleasant and service was prompt but we were there shortly after it opened and there were only a couple tables occupied.

It was built up to be great and it just wasn't. No where close to the authentic bistros in France.

The mussels are excellent. Among the best ever. Located on a nice, quiet section on Lincoln Road away from the crowds. Excellent, friendly service.

The mussels were great, scallops were yummy and red wine was delish! The servers are French and the ambience is lovely, music outside from other restaurant is quite loud however. If you prefer a quieter setting sit inside!

As a beach resident, I frequent the restaurant at least once a month. The ambience always takes me back to Paris. Small, simple, yet elegant. The food is traditional and quite good. Try the mussels, escargots, and the beef bourguignon.

The food was very good, but the space was very tight. There was probably less than 6 inches between tables. Other than spacing, I have no complaints.

A great little French bistro. Food is always good. Nice neighborhood feel. Probably my favorite French bistro in Miami Beach. Service can be "comme ci, comme ca" :)

We are locals and booked for a quick dinner before a party not knowing there was only a 5 course holiday menu. Frances, the proprietor, convinced us to stay telling us we were in for a treat. We were thrilled we did as the food was exceptional. This is a great spot always but he and the chef really outdid themselves.

Very disappointed with the scallops. They where the size of a dime and over cooked. We were a table of 6 and no one really enjoyed the food. The pizza looked good. Wish I would have ordered pizza. Cute little restaurant.

I love this place. Not your typical South Beach restaurant but a atmospheric, French bistro with great food and service and excellent wine list. There are outdoor tables as well as the attractive interior.
