Le Zoo is an energetic celebration of timeless French-Mediterranean flavors. Capturing the coveted common ground between European elegance and effortless South Florida sophistication, the 200-seat restaurant is a special place where gilded Old World decor plays alongside tropical planters and vintage French design touches. The food, drawing deeply from the refined cooking of Provence, is a transporting experience, ranging from the freshest fruits de mer and chic pizzas to pristine carpaccios, tartares and other signatures of Gallic coastal cuisine. Serving lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, Le Zoo brings out Francophile in all of us.

The hanger steak and ponme frittes were terrible. The steak was tough and not well flavored. The fries were not fresh either.

The onion soup was mediocre at best.

The fried calamari were good.

The waitress was too busy, thankfully the manager compensated for her short comings.

Food, table service, atmosphere, location are all outstanding.
One of my favotite places in Bal Hasrbour.
The only issue I had was your hostess Tuesday night, she was snarky, condescending, and downright unpleasant with attitude.
I am referring to the taller woman at the desk that night, she should be terminated.
To reiterate, the food, my server was excellent.

I am very patient given covid and knowing that places are short staffed and impacted. But this was just about not caring at all - we sat for 30 minutes before we had to ask to at least to get water. - tables were empty and there were plenty of servers - all talking and standing around at the back and not looking at tables.

Other tables got fresh bread from a basket - we were ignored despite twice asking for bread. They finally brought on a plate - stale and dry - not the fresh bread we saw served to other tables from a full basket to choose from.

We ordered a bottle of wine / 4 entrees/ 4 coffees and 1 dessert - a healthy tab for lunch.

Coffee was served in a cup that had pieces of salad stuck to the outside of it dirty. After trying to get someone’s attention - about 10 minutes - they went and replaced with a clean cup but never brought cream or a spoon. After another 10-15 minutes finally got cream - for a cold cup of coffee.

Dessert brought with no spoons - asked - but never got - so finally got up and went and got clean forks from an empty set table.

Not once was there any excuse or ‘I’m sorry”.

Finally flagged down someone to bring the check.

For the record still tipped 25% of bill because it’s the right thing to do despite the treatment we received.

Not sure I’d come back again.

Le Zoo remains a favorite restaurant of ours in Bay Harbour. Reception and service is attentive. Menu selection is classic and remains consistently well plated and flavorful. The Moules Frites is a dish my husband and I order all the time. Good wine selections as well. We continue to return here whether for a light meal or full course options.

It was very busy but we had a great waiter who made the experience perfect. This restaurant is always one of our favorites. I felt the food was not as perfect as usual; maybe everyone was too overwhelmed and short staffed.

Chicken pillared that I have eaten there for years came out raw with traces of red in the meat! Salad wilted. Took 40 minutes to get the food to only return it and leave. Very very disappointing NOT recommending this restaurant and it used to be a wkly visit.

Worst experience ever. Sewer water started coming out from under our table. They moved us to another table but the water kept coming. The King Crab was partially frozen and tasted like nothing. They messed up part of our main dishes and two of us had to sit and wait while the others ate. We spent the entire lunch smelling the sewer water coming on our feet. They didn't even offer us a desert as an apology. NEVER coming back to this restaurant.

Food was terrific. Service ok. Wait staff leaned over and across us a little too much and my son’s birthday candle was brought out in a single raspberry, which seemed tacky and cheap. A scoop
Of ice cream or even a single madeleine would have seemed more gracious given that he didn’t order a dessert.

Food was very good. Service was average or perhaps a level below. Had to ask for bread, water, our drinks
It was not that busy. No one was rude it just did not seem like it was a high-priority to have a high grade of service. No real complaints but the service was just average which you would think that it would be better at the posh Bal Harbour mall
