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.

Well executed French bistro style dishes. The attention to detail the kitchen puts into their food is greatly appreciated. Service was just what I like, simple and not to intrusive, but entrees were served while the other diner was using the ladies room( just a slight critique that did not affect the experience). One of my top 5 dinning experiences since moving to Miami.

Good service, my husband had a cold “concombre” soup and a great “steak frites”. I had the cold lobster tail: very fresh and a very good foie gras and apples.
The crepes Suzette were ok.
But above all, what is going on with the ceiling ? (Mold or mildew?)

Always a favorite dining destination, Le Zoo had a beautiful Miami Spice menu: healthy apps and a buttery trout almondine with homemade bread crumbs and lemon. For dessert, perfect creme brulee. Impeccable service - even at lunch, which is a rarity in Miami.

We’ve been trying to go Le Zoo for a long time, it just never really happened. But since it was a rare occasion for me to be off on a Saturday we made it count. From start to finish it was great. The hostess first of all made sure we got a seat we liked. (On a busy night that’s impressive) then our waiter David. He was so knowledgeable about the menu and guided us through our options. (My wife is dairy intolerant) great steak tartar, amazing Foie Grass, and my trout was spot on!!! Thank you very much for making it one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in MIAMI over the last 5 years. We loved the ambience and the setting . It legit felt like a little piece of Paris.

Parking at Bal Harbour Shops is now a Disaster due to expansion construction which is scheduled to continue for years. Don’t look for any help from the Valet staff!

A great location to meet some old friends for a relaxing lunch, Le Zoo is inside the Bal Harbor shops. Service was attentive and friendly, however the noise level was a little too loud for us to chat with ease. Food was good; although not great! Unfortunately, I personally had a challenge, as I just started a no-dairy, plant base diet. That said, I was limited to a green salad with balsamic vinegar on the side. Nonetheless, the assorted green were fresh, flavorful with French haricot vert and beautiful heirloom radishes. As our finale, we had only coffees with no desserts. The restaurant was charming in a classics French decor. Most likely, I will return.

We were four for brunch. We are inside because of the heat, and enjoyed the surroundings that were an accurate reproduction of a French bistro. The salmon tartar was excellent, washed down with a bottle of Vaqueras from the extensive wine list. Look, you are in Bal Harbour, this place is not cheap, so the value is questionable, but consider that you are renting space as much as you are eating the food. There are lots of interesting options on the menu, I will return on a cooler evening and sit outside where the people watching is priceless.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal. Seafood tower was a beautiful presentation and the smallest size was a very generous portion. The truffle pizza was delicious! It’s a little noisy sitting outside next to valet but we enjoyed watching an endless stream of luxury cars. Service was great.

Love the food but worse service I have ever experienced. Went there 2 nights in a row, received same quality of service.

- never received water refill
- asked for spoon for pasta never came. Pasta got cold so ate without spoon.
- asked for extra mayo for fries never came
- was never asked how food was
- saw waitress twice, for taking order and check
- waited 10 minutes after asking for check
- never a thank you from waitress or leaving restaurant

Overall the staff is just rude.

Le Zoo is a lovely, comfortable pretty restaurant with very good food, service and ambiance.
They make every attempt to please and they succeed.
when they first opened, they had a wonderful roast chicken on the menu, as do most French restaurants.
They have dropped it from the menu to my great disappointment.
Also, the bread, which was formerly great, was just okay.
Still a winner.
