Palme d'Or Ratings and Reviews
I don't think that I could have enjoyed this restaurant more. We went for Valentine's Day and had the pleasure of enjoying a very diverse menu. It was supposed to be (5) courses with a dessert but by the end it was about (9) courses. We had caviar, black truffle, scallops, filet, (3) desserts, lobster, SO MUCH FOOD! The service was impeccable and our server Jose was very attentive. The only cons were that we had to wait about 10 minutes for our table even with a reservation and the courses had long waiting period in between a few of them. Our reservation was for 8:30 but we didn't leave until midnight. This restaurant is extremely pricey so get ready to spend some cash but enjoy a great atmosphere and food.
If you ever think what a perfect evening would be like. Just go here and you will find out. Every person, every detail, every moment was just a tasteful pleasant experience. We are neighbors to this restaurant and are so happy that we don’t have to go far to experience it.
The service of Palme d'Or was outstanding! Both the maître d' and our waiter were very accommodating, highly informed, and very pleasant. If you are looking for an upscale culinary experience this is a very good place to go in Coral Gables. FYI, the 4 course menu is not available on the weekends; only the 6 course and the chef's 11 course tasting menu.
My wife and I went for dinner. They had three tasting menus with three different prices. I liked the chefs tasting menu (most expensive) and my wife liked another menu. The waiter told us that we both had to order from the same menu so that we would not “throw the kitchen off”- e.g. I was not “allowed” to order from the chefs menu if my wife ordered from the $65 menu. I almost walked out but ordered from the less expensive menu instead. Other than that restriction, the place is nice, food is interesting and well-presented, desserts and wine pairing excellent.
I took my wife there for her 75th Birthday. She and I both loved the Restaurant.
The ambience, service etc. were fine, but the food was Terrific. Prices are fixed and options are few, but there wasn't one course that wasn't superb. I have eaten in many fine Restuarants all over the world, but for tastes alone, no other was better than this. Pricing is very high, but worth it.
As background, I'm a world traveler for work and a fan of tasting menus, and have enjoyed plenty of Michelin-starred meals both alone or with my husband or family. I'm in Florida often for work and this time thought I'd try something new, thus the Palme d'Or. The food was quite good - traditional (caviar, fois gras, escargot, and so on) but delicious. Plating was lovely. I liked the little touch of having small amounts of bread paired to certain dishes. However the food could not overcome the ambiance, decor and service. I was the ONLY person there at 6:30; I still wasn't seated at any of the 2-tops with a view of the nice pool area but against a pillar where I could see nothing. No music at all. Decor is a sort of tired "European cosmopolitan" with lots of mirrors and darkness. When my server came by I smiled and said it was my first time there, I came for the tasting menus and I planned to do the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. He ignored this and proceeded to lecture me on what a tasting menu is and introduce me to the full range of options I could choose. I patiently waited and again told him what I'd be ordering. It was like this throughout the meal. As the fois gras was served I saw him approach with a Sauternes. Oh thanks, I said, that's an oldie but goodie pairing. He then commenced to inform me why Sauternes was a good pairing with fois gras. Insert rolled eyes. Finally another dining party arrives - a group of 4. Twice the chef comes out and chats with them at length. Returns to the kitchen ignoring me. (Remember - only 2 tables total were occupied.) Overall I did not feel welcome, I did not feel listened to, and while the food was excellent I will not be returning.
The food, ambiance and service were all top notch. However, the amount of food in my selection was minimal compared to the amount of bread and dessert that is offered. I would have liked a bit more of the “healthy” food options I selected than all of the bread that comes first and thereafter with each course to be followed by a cart of desserts and mini ice cream cones. All good, but a bit much. I did enjoy the food and would return but would love to see a bit more food on the plates in a progressive manner. When the first course was brought out I did expect it to be small, but expected each course to get a bit larger thereafter. Unfortunately, that was not the case. It felt as though I should have gotten full on the bread so as not to notice how little of the “real” food there actually was. Needless to say, if this is corrected, I think Palm D’or will have achieved perfection,
Incredible cuisine fit for foodies but the service was awful and completely fell apart at the end. You expect to sit for at least 2 hours for 11 courses, but not 4 hours. Server was young and inexperienced - forgetting many simple requests like lemons, fresh napkins and at one point our next courses. Would still return because the chef was incredible and the food was some the best I've had. I also really like that there's actually space in between the tables, which is a dying concept.
Wonderful 6 coarse meal with a couple of complementary extra palate cleansers added in for good measure. Waiter was spot on with his recommendations. Not sure of the $30 additional charge for Wago Beef on the $115 fixed price menu, but all well fine French dining is not cheap. A little expensive @ $600 with 1 drink at the bar and a nice bottle of wine with dinner and of course valet parking, but all things considered still worth it.
Miami spice menu excellent but there was a sense that we were less important because we weren’t having the regular menu. No amuse Bouche like in previous years. No cookies at the end. Even though it was empty we were ticked in the back behind the maitre d’. We still love the elegance and the ambiance. We were cold and so the brought lovely black shawls
Restaurant is high end and expensive. Food is normally excellent. We normally go during Miami Spice period only. I did to give top rating this time because a king crab first course was not very good, and the duck main course was small and very good, but not up to the restaurant's usual standards. Several reasonably priced wine choices were available. Desserts were very enjoyable.
