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've been to Le Zoo several times, but this time, no bread was brought to the table. I asked for it, and the server came back 2 more times to ask if we were served the bread. My response was "Do you see it?" I thought that was unconscious. I also missed the delicious cranberry walnut bread which I understand is no longer served.

Food was very good. At $27 per glass for champagne, they could at least fill the glass. It was barely two thirds full.

My favorite places to
Go, bc they make the best onion soup. I wanted to celebrate my birthday there so I made
The reservation with open table and I acknowledge that was my birthday, to my surprise they did t even noticed the fact. Not
That’s important but would have been nice. Other than that I recommend this restaurant the food is great and so the attention

Everything at Le Zoo was perfect. The service is impeccable and the food was EVEN BETTER. I ordered the burger americain and it was cooked to perfection. If you go for brunch, get the French toast. The restaurant itself is also gorgeous and makes you feel as though you’re in Paris. Loved it!

Very enjoyable. Tables inside are small and you feel a bit cramped in because the tables are so close together. Too hot for outdoor seating, and smelling fumes from cars is an unappealing idea while dining. Specialty cocktail was great but very pricey. Bread selection offered was sparse, and oil for dipping wasn’t anything special. The grilled artichoke was the best!

I'm visiting Le Zoo for many years since opening and was always giving it 5 stars. This time we've noticed a significant reduction in portion size. People at the next table were complaining about it as well and even told the waiter to relate it to management.

This was a very nice French restaurant, not the heavy French food but more like the country French with nice salad’s seafood and on the day we went breakfast. My only complaint about this restaurant was the water which was the city‘s fault taste bad. That’s not the restaurants fault. We had such a good timeService was great and everybody enjoyed their meals. Although it took us almost an hour to get there from where we live we definitely will go back in the future

This is an outstanding restaurant! Our waitress was charming, informative and great fun! When we arrived the place was somewhat empty which was great because you could carry on a conversation. Later as more people arrived, it became nosier and hampered the conversation. We really enjoyed the place and HIGHLY recommend it!

We went there to watch the World Cup final, since they advertised they were hosting a party. We had a reservation, arrived there first, got the worst table of the whole restaurant. Tiny tv, the transmission was cut during the highlights of the game. People that arrived late without reservation got seated in front of us blocking our view.
