    As requested, we were seated outside. We ordered a rose and escargots which were very good in the traditional olive oil recipe. Lots of fresh baked bread. The entres we’re all equally good. We ordered trout almandine, steak au proive, and I ordered a Cacio e Pepe pachetti. For desserts, pro bite roles and an apricot tart. A wonderful meal. The service was good but we had a young lady who had just started, normally, the service is out if this world. Chef Amina came out a couple if times to check on us.

    Food was fantastic! A bit of a wait but worth it especially when it’s authentic. Black owned gem away from the Miami fuss. Intimate decor, head chef and owner and waitstaff were more than hospitable! Would go back in a heartbeat.

    Without a doubt Cote Gourmet is not only the best French restaurant in town but most probably, amongst the best restaurants in Miami. Their food is outstanding, added to their amazing service. Their prices are very reasonable, considering their quality offering.

    Excellent French cuisine, which is a rarity in South Florida. Chef was very much engaged with her customers and along with very attentive service made for a pleasant experience. If there is one weak spot, it's the location in what appears to be an office building under renovation adjacent to a main road. Outdoor seating located on the sidewalk area of the restaurant looks to be the favorite here, as my preference for indoors was met with an almost empty dining room which is unusual for a Saturday night.

    A jewel stolen from Paris in our midst. Excellent food, service, presentation and if it wasn't for the occasional loud car, you could feel transported to a French bistro. Chef Ly outdoes herself every time. From delicious appetizers to exquisite entrees and heavenly desserts. Be prepared to have a gustatory event, an evening that you will remember.

    Hats off to the chef for fine classic French dishes and creative international choices. We appreciated the limited dinner menu with select choices plus some specials. Lovely atmosphere conducive to chatting and enjoying those you're with. Located on a quiet commercial street in Miami Shores, it is a hidden gem in the neighborhood with easy and free parking, but is a somewhat pricey. Friendly wait staff, eager to please but not disturbing. Good lunch menu including fabulous crepes and very relaxed.

    Very hungry tourist on the prowl away from the hubbub. As a diehard francophile, I took a calculated risk ... and was well rewarded. I arrived way too early for the opening and was perfectly happy to wait, but a lovely, happy person (the beautiful chef/owner) welcomed me with warmth and complete ease. I knew I had chosen well. The menu offered all sorts of delicious brunch options, and I decided to have a little bfast snack and then lunch--pain au chocolate with a divine cappuccino followed by a salade nicoise with fresh tuna. So so good! Perfect portion, beautifully prepared. Not silly or excessive. Just right. Kind, personable service. French music, too! Un lieu de rencontre chic et sans effort... tous les jours.

    Appetizers : Lentil Soup, vegan soup, which happened to be Carrot Soup & Potato Flan - Great Entrees: Catch of the Day, which was Swordfish, Skirt Steak and the lamb chops - Great Desserts : Chocolate Cake & Creme Brulee. The cake was good, but the Creme Brulee had the consistency of a pudding and the Baily's Cream infusion made it taste like a pudding. The have a nice selection of wines, we had a Nero D'Avola that was wonderful

    Excellent little restaurant, small and cozy. The food was great as well as the service. I had read some reviews complaining about the service, in particular having to wait for the food. I found no basis, is a small place (including the kitchen) and while some of the dishes can be prepared ahead of time, other have to be cooked to order. For starters Escargots main courses the Trout for dessert we shared the Tart Tatin. They have a nice wine selection or you can bring your own for a nominal corkage fee. The idea of going out to dine is also to enjoy the company.

    The mall took almost two hours There was confusion between owner /waiter and chef in kitchen. The crepes were average. The piece was offensive considering we waited for over an hour for a miniscule "meal". The owner came over to apologise and offered to make us crepes. Neglected to tell us we'd be charged for every strawberry. The ice cream was stale. They could not figure out how to refund the incorrect charge so they just crossed off the gratuity. Ruined a lovely afternoon.

    This was a very pleasant and fortuitous surprise since we have never eaten there before but needed to find a restaurant haf way between Miami and Ft Lauderdale so we could meet with friends. The menu was limited, but what it had fave us plenty of choices and the chef even prepared non-menu items. Both the menu items and the special made were excellent. Good selection of wines, quiet but small. Despite a 45 minute ride, we will be back!

    Everything was spectacular from start to finish. The food, the service, and the ambience were all flawless. We had the chicken roulade, escargot, beef bourguignon, and a salmon with lime and ginger, with mango tart and profiteroles for dessert. All utterly delicious. Try it - you’ll love it.

    This restaurant is a little bit of Europe in Miami. owners are French/Sengalese and Italian. Food is very French, but happily, on the light side. No heavy creams or sauces. You start with an amuse bouche, which was a wonderful little tart, and good bread and better. The carrot soup is delicious; just vegetable and not sweet. My husband had the salmon and I had the lamp chops, both very good. Lamp chops were really good quality with no fat. Excellent wines. Excellent profiteroles for dessert. Highly attentive and warm personalized service. One of the rare places in Miami for a quiet meal with good low key music. My only complaint is the lighting; too dark and yellowish bulbs; needs just a little brightening. Looking forward to returning.

    Being a trendy city, there's no shortage of restaurants that over promise and under deliver.If you're looking for blaring techno music, waiters with blue hair and neck tattoos and an atmosphere that gives the impression that the food was an afterthought, than stick to Wynwood. On the other hand, if you're looking for a place to enjoy a good meal and conversation with great food, wonderfully attentive service and no one rushing you to seat another table than make a reservation at Cote' Gourmet. Thank you for wonderful evening, my wife and I will be back.

Always taking care of the customers with Roberto and his team. It is one of the best places to have a lovely lunch or dinner with friends, family or you significant other!!!
