It would be a waste of time to explain each and every little detail lacking at Palme d'Or. Training and exceptional service must be your first step. The dishes lack imagination and soul. Chef Gregory Pugin missed on his delivery of dishes. It could have helped if he was present in the kitchen which leaves me to suggest the sous-chef lacks discipline.
Typical Miami. With much sorrow and regret, this will be the last time dinning here.

Excellent French-inspired cuisine with the opportunity to taste a variety of inspired works of culinary art. Some of the dishes might have needed more subtle supporting cast; for example the celeriac overshadowed the king crab. Some outstanding choices from the 6-course tasting menu included the "La Saint Jacques" and the "Le Loup de Mediterranee". The dishes are diminutive, although you do not leave hungry given the infinite variety of breads that are served with each dish. This was our favorite spot for our anniversary dinners and we flew in from out of state this year to celebrate our 20th at Les Palmes D'Or.

There's nothing wrong with the ambience but once the food and wine start to arrive you soon forget where you are. We had the six-course Valentine's weekend tasting menu with accompanying wines and all the dishes were excellent. The wines with each course were well-paired and enhanced the meal. The friendly service is exceptional without being stuffy. It's expensive, but it's hard to put a value on such experiences. A lot of work by many people goes into preparing the dishes and serving them. This is fine dining at its best. Highly recommended.

This was the best food I have ever eaten. I've been to several countries and places in the U.S. and it doesn't compare. My husband and I ate at Palme d'Or on valentines day. We had the course meal. It was very small portions but by the time we were finished we were extremely full. I love getting to try small samplings of different types of food. The atmosphere was so romantic and they made you feel like an important guest. They even threw in a few extra things to make your experience just a little better. The chocolate cart that you can select truffles that the chef made, and leaving with homemade macaroons. The only complaint I have was that they assumed you knew what all of the items on the menu meant. When I asked them to explain they really didn't go into detail. The explanation of the food is nearly as good as eating it. I would still recommend this restaurant to someone looking for a unique dining experience.

Menú de degustación con sabores variados, la primera parte que era comidas del mar no sorprendió, luego las
Carnes y sobre todo el cerdo exquisito!!!

Los postres muy buenos.

Creo que pueden ser una mucho mejor experiencia por el precio del menú y el nivel de restaurante que es.

The cuisine at this wonderful French restaurant in Coral Gables rivals Per Se in New York City. Each course was nothing less than spectacular, and I even enjoyed a delicious white Chateau de Pape—a rarity in the U.S. Thank you for all you’ve done to make our family so welcomed, for so many years. —BV, on behalf of John E.

Let me just start by saying, I had the best fine dining experience tonight at the Palme d'Or. The food was spectacular and the service was excellent. The presentation and the taste of all of the dishes was exquisite. I had the Chef Tasting Menu, which was 11 course and I definitely enjoyed each one. Our server was perfect, she had the greatest attention to detail in making sure we enjoyed our dining experience. I will be sure to visit again! Five stars!!

Again an amazing experience. We decided to get the 11 course chef’s tasting menu tonight. Each course was beautifully presented and the flavors were incredible. The amuse bouche was a great introduction to the night. And the journey only got more interesting with each plate, from the caviar to the fish and lastly the cheese and dessert. The service was attentive and welcoming, and the ambience was perfect. We have been to many Michelin starred restaurants around the world and I can definitely say Miami is lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber in its backyard. Definitely worth the price to be able to witness such an incredible culinary experience.

As longtime patrons of Palme d'Or, we have enjoyed many wonderful meals there. However, we did not enjoy our New Year's Eve dinner. The food was fair, the service was terrible, we were rushed, plates were picked up from the table before everyone had finish the course. Finally there was a constant pounding coming from the ballroom upstairs. Needless to say we where very disappointed.

We went to Palm d’ Or for New Year’s Eve. We arrived at 7:00 PM so the restaurant was quiet... maybe 4 tables.
Servers were kind abd professional and food was very well prepared and served... but... it took forever between plates (it was a fixed menu). We spent over 3 hours there... my 4 year old couldn’t take over 3 hours dinner and my husband ended taking her to the room and missing the las 2 courses...

I have frequented this restaurant for many years and loved it, however this time I found that they have gone overboard in their pricing. $16.00 for water is outrageous! I live in Coral Gables and drink the tap water which I would have been happy to do had they offered it. I also found the pork dish tough and not up to the level I expected. The fois gras was too rare and the flavor again was mediocre. For $400+ for 2 people, with only 1 drink, 1 glass of wine and 1 glass of champagne it is in my opinion way out of line. I probably will not return - sad since for 30 years it has been my favorite restaurant in Miami.

Service was not discreet. It was over bearing diminishing the dining experience. One felt that the courses were being served to rapidly to allow one to savor the dish and relax during the dinner. The wines were served without the proper description for appreciation. The portions were not sufficient to permit the savoring of the dish. Overall the dining experience was not what it had been previously at the Biltmore. Rather a disapppointment.

We had the wine pairing which was good but nothing t up to the fabulous food. This is a meal to be experienced if the opportunity arises. Staff is knowledgeable, attentive and contributed to a very enjoyable evening.

2018 AAA Five Diamond Award winning restaurant
It would have been a disgrace for me not to have the opportunity to enjoy this Five Diamond Award winning restaurant before the end of the Miami Spice months. Booking a table was extremely challenging but, we were lucky to have a table on a Friday evening at 6:30 PM.
I was pleasantly surprised that some staff members remembered us although this was our 1st visit this year. The service was just perfect. The highly qualified staff was like a Swiss watch. Their coordination was also perfect. Although we had an early reservation, there was no rush for us to leave. They raised the bar so high that we will struggle elsewhere if the standards are lower. The food, including the portions, were also perfect for a French restaurant.
This was our best meal and service during the Miami Spice months.

Food was too salty and I had to send my plate away. The appetizer actually had a salt grain and also too salty. The dessert was good. I had so much high expectation for this place but my husband and I were disappointed. The people there were so friendly and nice and I did enjoy the experience. Just not food.
