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.

    I always have a decent experience and I like the food overall. Limited options, but a great place for small bites, and drinks. I'm not too fond of the service. The waiters are super nice, but they barely clean the tables, and old dishes, e.g. It isn't easy to get the service you'd expect at a Steven Starr restaurant. Maybe they're just overly busy, but it's a shame they can't get better busboys or servers that help keep things organized during your meal.

    We enjoy going to Le Zoo for brunch and sitting outside. We wish they had a more extensive menu and offered sandwiches so we could choose between brunch and lunch. Our waiter was most attentive and made our dining experience very enjoyable. Our only hiccup was the chef not paying attention to my order of a plain omelet. It came with cheese which was promptly rectified. WE would definitely recommend this restuarant.

    We had a very late lunch and enjoyed wonderful service and outstanding cuisine at Le Zoo. Two of us had the steak tartare served with a salad with an order of fries - excellent choice; and two of us had the chicken paillard - also excellent (a really tasty preparation with crushed olives and slivered almonds). We also shared a bottle of Sancere and the lemon tart for dessert. Great meal combined with excellent service from Karma.

    Still a favorite for classic and comfort French bistro food for us. We ordered French Onion Soup, pizza and pasta, mules frites and the trout amandine. For dessert the chocolate mouse and cappuccino. Our guests enjoyed our lunch meal and we were seated in a nice corner high table by the water fountain which we liked.

    Every time we visit Miami, going to Le Zoo is a must! Best restaurant in the area, the truffle pizza is delicious, the Foie grass is outstanding, the beef carpaccio and the hamachi crudo are also a great option if you want to go lighter! The wine list although not extensive, but has some excellent wines to choose from… and the cocktails are delicious!

    Food was good, not excellent. Our waitress seemed to be the only one with any type of training. Two other wait staff tried to serve main courses to our table while we were eating oysters as an appetizer. One of the dishes was not even for our table. For a restaurant in this category they need to hire qualified and experienced people who can speak English!

    Food was okay, truffle pizza came out very greasy, even the edge of the crust was fully soaked in oil. Eggs Benedict was missing a green salad on the side and eggs were cold. Served the bread, but had to ask for butter

    Biggest complaint is the fact that the wine list is grossly overpriced, and I many cases they don’t have any inventory. ps. I am in the wine business and a local who comes to Le Zoo quite often.

    We both ordered Steak Frites which we’ve really enjoyed several times in the past. Our server went over our desired cooking temperatures very well and it was clear that the two of us wanted different temperatures. One medium well and the other medium. The steaks we received were both medium rare. Why bother asking if the kitchen will simply make their own decisions?
