About

Located in the heart of Downtown Miami’s burgeoning Arts and Entertainment District, Fooq’s is an eclectic eatery serving “Feel Good Food” in an urban, yet distinctly cozy setting.

A concept created by restaurateur David Foulquier, Fooq’s brings a new definition to comfort food that sparks the sentiment of feeling right at home. The farm-to-kitchen fare at Fooq’s, features international menu selections inspired by global travels and Persian-French heritage. With its bright and airy interior, the charming restaurant is a vibe-driven zone complemented by distinct hospitality.

Now through September 30, we've temporarily paused Fooq's food menu to bring you the Lil' Laos Laos pop up restaurant, a concept by Sakhone Sayarath and her husband chef Curtis Rhodes. Lil’ Laos brings to life Southeast Asian fare with bold flavors, aromatic scents, and spicy punches that are guaranteed to thrill your taste buds. Lil' Laos is open for takeout and delivery only Tuesday-Saturday from 12-8pm.

The food was amazing, as usual, and the service impeccable. Definitely worth every penny. Outdoor patio is charming but it’s a bit too hot & muggy, with some bugs, on a warm night.

This is my second time eating here and the quality of the food and service has remained consistent, even though this second time was after the social distancing changes. The Fooq's burger and the Carbonara might be tied as my favorites on the menu. Delicious! Will definitely be back again.

We selected Fooq's because it was walking distance from the Arscht Center and were more than pleasantly surprised. Warm, inviting interior, friendly and efficient service, and delicious food. I wish they had another location in Boca so we could go more often. Will definitely visit again the next time we go to a show or a concert in that neighborhood.

The decor was cute, the menu looked promising but the food was just okay. I ordered the local catch and the dish was just so salty, even the tomatoes which I hoped would cut the saltiness were salty. the fresh bread was okay and the babaganoush didn’t blow my mind. My friend seemed to like the stuffed eggplant though. The Persian sundae was refreshing and a nice way to wrap the meal.

Great vibe to this place. Their tag line says it all: Feel Good Food.
Their hummus and various breads were excellent. Also the burrata with beets, etc.
I had the bucatini amatriciana, which was perfect! Chocolate mousse to finish.

I was very disappointed by this spot. The food wasn’t worth the price and the Persian dishes were not on point. I’m definitely not coming back.

One positive was the service was good that’s about it. And the Brussels sprouts were yum. To leave it a on a good note :)

This was our second time at Fooq’s. The gormeh sabzi is really the only thing on the menu worth ordering. The cauliflower salad was tiny and tasted like water - I think they forgot to add the citrus in the citrus dressing; the sabzi salad was $7 for not even a full handful of herbs; the barbari bread would have been good if it had been cooked properly. We are in the restaurant industry and just felt like we got completely ripped off. We will not be returning

I arrived 10min early for a 7pm reservation. As I walked up from the parking lot I passed a dumpster with trash everywhere, old tables, bikes, chairs, trash scattered. I walked inside to check in and was not given a choice to outside or inside because they had a huge party so I was sat outside, stones through from the trash. I ordered meatballs, beets, and trio dip. Meatballs were cold and didn’t have a lot of flavor, the dips were ‘ok’, beets were good, with a glass of wine. Gratuity was included which brought my total bill to $74 for cold meatballs (3), beets and dip.

Disappointing service on Valentine’s Day - took us 45 minutes to get our appetizers to the table. Food was great and the waiter was nice enough about it, but inexplicable wait times on a day where it would
Have been easy to anticipate busy crowd was disappointing, especially on our first time there.

After having buccatini pasta at Sunday brunch, which we had many times prior, we were so disappointed in it's not being what it was. We braved it and ordered it recently at dinner. It is back to what it was. Whoever might act as Sunday brunch 2nd in line chef needs a bit more training. David owner was sweet in sharing with us their Persian lamb stew when I had mentioned missing one of their other stews that was no longer on the menu. Very sweet and delicious

We’ve been coming since day 1 and this place just keeps getting better. Outstanding service, with lots of familiar faces, and a deliciously unique blend of flavors varying from Persian to European. Killer wine list with cult favorite wines and a strong selection of natural wines and growers champagne!

I’ve been coming to fooqs for the past 4 years, and they have proven to be an institution. Menu changes never disappoint, and it’s impressive what they do with such a small space. I love this place and even if sometimes some things are out, it’s the name of the game with farm to table spots. Keep it up

I celebrated a special occasion here, and it was just the right combination of excellent food and service with a cozy atmosphere. It felt intimate but not crowded, upscale but not fussy.

We were able to eat at a leisurely pace as we ordered several courses, stretching our meal for a few hours.

The waitress and kitchen staff were very understanding and accommodating of dietary restrictions.

This was our third and final visit to Fooqs. There is always an issue with the menu items. At this visit, they were out of 2 of the three spreads from their appetizers. Then we ordered 2 bottles of wine from their wine list and they were out of both. Only to suggest a $15 more expensive bottle without offering even a 10% discount. The waitstaff was also very unfriendly, not apologetic whatsoever and just downright pathetic. Not visiting ever again if I have the choice.

This was my second time at Fooq’s. The food has been good both times, but the service was really bad this time around. In particular, we tried to order a bread to have with out trio of spreads and our waitress kept promising us it was “almost finished” and after over an hour it never came. We ended up spending almost 2 hours at the restaurant and it really left a negative impression on our experience.

Our group of four loved the food and particularly the lamb stew and Brussel sprouts. The service was a bit scattered, many things we had to ask for 3-4 times and one appetizer came out after the entree's. I realize the kitchen is small and that can slow down the pace of food, but having to ask multiple times for more water or a menu isn't right.
