Salamon was our waiter and he was incredible. The food was so delish she made some really good recommendations. If you booking here do request Salamon to be your server.
Great Valentine’s dinner with my family. Thank you.
We really like this place - always reliably good. I just downed grade a little because the accompanyment to the kumoto oysters was bitter. The champagne/onion combo needed a dash of sweetness- the bitterness ruined the oyster flavor. The amazing raspberry cheesecake almost made up for it! Best cheesecake I’ve ever had.
Great time on Valentines Day. Greg recommended a very nice red wine. The escargot was on point. Steak and frits you cant go wrong
The oysters were addled
An upscale French bistro in a bustling area. Outside seating is nice, but noise from parking lot adjacent to tables can be loud. Food and service is very good and we would return the next time we're in the area.
Risotto with seafood was not good.
Love this venue and the energy of this restaurant, service was not up to par this last time, food always great!
In spite of being a 30-minute schlepp for us , le Zoo is always a treat and never a disappointment. Just really fresh seafood, cooked simply but expertly and served by a most talented staff...what more could one possibly ask?
Absolutely loved the decor in the indoor and outdoor dining , the flavors of the various dishes were delicious, and the service was on point. My only negative feedback was the bathroom decor.
Food service and atmosphere excellent but table was small
So authentic. food and service excellent. always enjoy
Family came in from kc for superball
Food & atmosphere excellent!
I often go to le zoo ,!, very good food and Service.
The manager Valeria is a class act ..She makes you feel welcomed.
I always have a fantastic experience
Excellent service!! Food was delicious and people watching was fun! I cannot eat gluten and they were very careful with my salmon and appetizer. We all enjoyed our meals and the ambiance, we will be back.
Service was excellent, food was very good ( not too hard with all the butter) prices not bad except for wine by the glass which was too high ( US Chardonnay) way too high for that wine.
We enjoyed the French food and the service very much. We like the menu and will go back.
Very friendly waitstaff. Food was delicious.
Amazing food and amazing staff. Thank you.
Best place for Lunch and dinner in Bal Harbor. Food is amazing and service is top.
Feels like you are in St Tropez! Highly recommended.
very busy evening but our service and food was outstanding. authentic and high quality.
Outside eating was a zoo - so we opted for a quieter, more relaxed dinner inside. Inside also evokes a French bistro which we liked. It was a Saturday evening and a hopping spot.
Service was great and both dinners were enjoyed. Definitely recommend!
We have been going to Le Zoo for years always dining on the patio where the food and service has always been very good. However, this evening due to the cool weather we reserved a table for 6 indoors. We were seated at a table meant for 4 where 2 chairs were added to the ends. This made it for a very tight fit. I also wish their chairs were also more comfortable, as most guys find them a little small. Otherwise, consistently great place and they take reservations.
Food was great; it is a little loud inside. Service was great once someone came to the table..had to ask for a waiter. Highly recommend
Food, service, ambiance — outstanding all around!
More of a 3.5 than a 3. The food is excellent and the duck is outstanding. Our waitress was very friendly and efficient and the dinners are reasonably priced for Bal Harbor. The restaurant appears to make its profit on the drinks with small water glasses and expensive wine. We ordered a half bottle of French chardonnay, but the waitress suggested a half carafe of California chardonnay telling us it was the same thing. When I got the bill the "same thing" half carafe was $45, $16 more than the half bottle I originally ordered. The expensive drinks may explain why it is easy to get a table at Le Zoo while there is a waiting line at the restaurant next to it.
The salmon was over cooked 2 times, the vegetables were frozen. They apologized but did not offer even a dessert or cocktail for all the headaches. Needless to say I did not have dinner after 2 attempts.
Great food great ambiance
WONDERFUL START TO FINISH=APPS,ENTRE, WINE , DESSERT
Chef Julian came out to wish us Happy Anniversary. The food was spectacular, the truffle pizza, the branzino and the steak frites, were Devine. Thank you everyone for a great time.
Very busy restaurant at Bal Harbour. All was good. All restaurants there are kind of crazy busy.
Wht a shame ! We always enjoyed coming here ,but our most current experience was very disappointing . There is no excuse for a restaurant server ignoring or risking medical issues by not taking care of specific food requests . Our server lacked the understanding of my wifes dinner requirements . I can't even recommend my dinner as the Onion Soup was more bread than onions,and the flambe prawns were small ,heads on, leaving four half prawns and a meager portion of Asparagus for $34.00 . I am for giviing restaurants the benefit of a second chance as it is tourist season in South Florida and the place was a ZOO . Unfortunately, I am afraid the risk is greater than the reward ,
Bread stale, service uncharacteristically slow, food took a very long time to come out.
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. NO MORE.
We have to drive an hour to get there. We were placed outside as requested by one of the guests.
We were asked if we wanted water and after that everything deteriorated.
My wife ordered soup as an appetizer and steak frites. Everyone else only ordered main courses. We were not asked but we requested warm bread for the table.
We had to ask 3 times for the bread, the soup was delivered at the same time as the steak. The attention by our unfortunate server was lacking because of the number of tables she had to serve. The manager passed the table and asked if all was ok as he walked past and no one could answer.
We canceled the soup because it would have resulted in the steak getting cold. The steak was reported to me as tasting "gamy" .We were served cold bread.
The other main courses were good.
I used the mens room twice during our visit , once upon arrival and once before leaving . On both visits there was a large amount of fluid on the floor around the urinal and no one around to notify.
Although the taste of the food was good, there are too many other good restaurants where there would have been less aggravation at the prices they command
The food is excellent as usually. The menu is great. Never been disappointed in 4 years I have been going there for lunch or dinner. Great for people watching.
We loved Le Zoo! The food was excellent, it has a fun vibe and loved that they have a kids menu. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!
Fantastic Experience. From super friendly check in staff to comped hats and noise makers, great music, free champagne at midnight and excellent food and service. Could not be happier to celebrate NYE at Le Zoo
