    Food not consistent. Liked fois gras but tiny portion. Cheese ok. The duck breast disappointing. Tasted like liver! Expect a better sauce from French restaurant. The service was excellent but very few customers that evening. Ambiance nice.

    I want to thank the staff for being so accommodating and gracious. When we were done dining, we were enjoying the place so much that we didn’t realize it was closing. The staff never once pressured us to leave. Thank you for your understanding!

    Overall the food is still very good and happy to report that the portion are now a bit bigger . They had gotten to the point that they were microscopic ! The service was good but not what it use to be 10-15 years ago . The restaurant seems dated and tired and I have to wonder how much longer it will be around . I’ve been to Palm d’Or many times over the years and while it’s still good , it is no longer the grande dame of French cuisine in Miami.

    Aside from the attentive waitresses and the fact that it's located at the Biltmore, there is really nothing remarkable about this restaurant... the prawns were disgusting, the $50 + steak was blah... the atmosphere was that of an old / worn out hotel restaurant... Get with the times people! a $350 dinner for two... a total insult..!

    Creímos por un momento que la experiencia sería fantástica y fue decepcionante. No estuvieron atentos de nuestra mesa, debíamos estar llenando siempre a alguien que nos ayudara, trataron de vendernos un vino que no ordenamos, y la comida no es espectacular. No volveríamos.

    I visited this place during a trip to Miami and enjoyed the experience very much. The ambiance here was very quiet and service was great. They provided decent French cuisine although there were some misses too. We ordered the chef's tasting menu for $49 with the $10 added on for octopus. We also ordered the Wagyu filet mignon and the hamachi appetizer. Here comes the comments on food: - Brioche was okay, but butter was served too cold. - The chef sent us a tuna tartare, which had amazing taste. Tuna was marinated just about right and it was so fresh and flavourful. It went well with the deep fried crunchy something. - The hamachi appetizer was presented beautifully like a piece of art, and tasted very refreshing. I personally thought it would be even better if they put more pears to balance out the sourness. - The octopus was great, with soft texture and yummy sauce. - The Branzino was a little bit dry, but tasted okay. - The Wagyu came from a local farm in Florida. I enjoyed the sauce and cooking skills, but could never understood dry aged Wagyu. In my opinion, one important reason that Wagyu outperformed normal beef was its fatty and tender texture of the meat. However, this piece of dry aged Wagyu lost so much water in the process and tasted too dry. I didn't like the fact that the menu did not show it was dry aged. I would have not ordered the dish if that was the case. - The hazelnut chocolate tasted rich and creamy. I enjoyed it a lot. The server was patient to answer our questions related to the dishes and provided great service. Note that 20% service surcharge was already included in the bill. I would definitely consider revisiting this place if I'm in Miami again.

    We love the Palme d'Or and are delighted that it now has such a terrific 3 course menu. Although it costs a little more than Miami Spice, it's still a great value and has all the superb quality, wonderful service and delightful ambience of the Palme d'Or of old.

    It has always been the restaurant in Miami since I started eating there. Years ago, the second to last Chef before the present one prepared the best sequence of three dishes I have ever had: A tartine with bellota ham, pieces of terrine de foie gras and fresh figs, a black truffle risotto, and a duck magret " Apicius". Mr. Pugin often achieved flashes of brilliance, including the most memorable venison ever, but the last time my friends and I ate his six course tasting menu, every dish was absolute perfection. our praise was so effusive that he came out to greet us and we had the honor of meeting the gentleman. I am baffled how his ex-sou chef has taken over as Chef de Cuisine cooking at the very same level where he left off. The Michelin guide only awards one star at a time unless they have just begun to cover a whole new region. If it ever starts to rate restaurants in Miami, all this restaurant needs is a more ample amuse bouche offering to achieve an immediate 3 star rating.

    Went for Miami Spice. The menu was included with the regular menu without having to ask for it, and the wait staff actually encouraged it. Were seated promptly at a table facing the pool. The restaurant is old world elegant in style. Multiple servers took care of us, starting with water, drinks, and then The food order. We had the shrimp - 3 large Madagascar shrimp over tabouleh - and beet salad - several different types of beets with goat cheese. Both were excellent. For entrees we had the lamb paccheri pasta - very creamy and tasty, and the beef tenderloin - a decent size piece of perfectly cooked, tender meat with various vegetables. For dessert we had the cream puff - a profiterole with vanilla cream and a caramel center - and the chocolate cake. Both were excellent although not as sweet as expected. I would go with the cream puff. We then received an additional dessert - 4 small bite size cookies (macaroon, chocolate, etc). We did not experience any of the complaints noted by other reviewers (bad table, small portions, attitude because of ordering from the Spice menu instead of the regular one, etc). Everything was excellent from the setting (although the lights could have been dimmed a bit), the service, and most importantly the food.

    My only comment would be that the service was a little "robotic", meaning functional, but not really warm or personal, which is different from the service elsewhere at the Biltmore. We also noted that it was our Anniversary at the time we made our reservation, but this was not recognized in any way.

    I do not have enough words to describe the quality of the Food, Service and ambiance here. My teenagers selected this restaurant to take me for my birthday and it could not have been a better choice. We greeted by the most pleasant hostess. The service from our Waitress Rosemary B. was one of if not THE BEST I have had. She was amazing, conversed with the Teens, explained the menu and recommended a lovely wine for me. We had the Miami Spice Menu and every course out did the one before.....EVERYTHING WAS GOOD including the portions. A little special birthday greeting accompanied my dessert. The experience could not have been better. The Biltmore & their restaurants never disappoint.. from my days at the University of Miami to now. I Will continue going back !!!
