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.

Minimal vegetarian options. Hostess always guide you to the worst seating first. It is always a hard negotiation to get better seating away from crowds.

The server was inattentive and absentminded. My husband had to go in person to get small plates, fork and sugar. We had to ask three times to get bread. Never received the lemon. Very disappointing.

My boyfriend and I love Le Zoo, however, my favorite dish on the menu was the Gnocchi. We planned this dinner for my birthday specifically to get the gnocchi and we sat down and found out it had been taken off the menu. Please please please bring it back. The rest of the food we got was great, we always love their oysters, and I ordered the Branzino and it was very tasty.

Wish I could rate this zero stars because I couldn’t tell you if the food is good or bad because the food never arrived. I’m assuming the food is just as bad as their service, and that the flavor is just as non existent as their manager. For the inconvenience we experienced, we should not have been charged for anything, and the manager should have apologized himself. If I could give you one piece of advice, don’t go to Le Zoo.

Food was spectacular as always - the steak & frites is a must-eat and so are the profiteroles for dessert! The ambience is beside the valet, so a bit noisy and busy but the restaurant is beautiful and chic. The service was good, we had the manager pass by our table and check-in during a busy Mother’s Day weekend. The entree took a little long to get to the table, but it also could’ve been due to the holiday. We were also sat immediately, so I recommend a reservation.

The onion soup is really good, also the beef carpaccio very tasty and fresh. However, we ordered the fried calamari and it wasn’t what we expected.

Service was very slow and we had to ask for water, waited too long for our wine, our check (multiple times). And our seating next to the serving station in the middle of the mall was very disappointing. It was very loud, cramped and waitstaff were buzzing around our table as they served a large crowd.

My wife and I are frequent diners at Le Zoo, sometimes bringing along family or friends, and often out little dog (they are very accommodating). The food is authentic and excellent. Cold cucumber soup and escargot are favorites for us. Eggs benedict and Norwegian and perfectly cooked (with unusually tasty potatoes). Steak is also more dependably cooked than at the fancy and most expensive (and often somewhat arrogant) steak chains around the area. And the profiteroles are terrific. Great wine options too. Love it.

Service was very slow. Seemed to be one server with a large section. Took about 20 minutes for a server to even take our drink order. Drinks were forgotten about after that. Food came out timely.

We were given a well separated table in the center of the retail stores. The service and the food were outstanding. The staff and the management were very attentive and were very personable. The restaurant makes a wonderful trout almandine which we always order. We were very pleased. The Bal Harbour Shops are one of our favorite destination places in South Florida. We will of course, return.
