Visiting Pascal is always such a nice experience!
Starting with a warm welcome, classic ambiance, white linens and fresh flowers. Followed by a great presentation of the always interesting menu, never disappointing. Ending with the best chocolate souffle in town.

We are looking forward to our next visit!

The first time we have ever been there and food was not up to par. The appetizers were very good and my entrée, the lamb chops, were great, my spouse's beef tenderloin was not the best. Temperature wise it was fine, but the cut on meat was not very tender in sections. Similarly my dessert was great but his Baked Alaska, the ice cream was frozen solid, that it was almost impossible to eat

As always, the service was great as was the wine selection.

It is always wonderful to dine at Pascals. The food specials were terrific and so too the wine. The service was a little slow that evening but it appeared they had a full house and staff was very busy. But overall we had a great time.

Spectacular dinner with emphasis on the double baked cheese soufflé appetizer. The lamb chops where very large and cooked to perfection.

Service was unprofessional. Server did not know wines. Had discussion on item ordered. Waiter was unapologetic. Pricing was stratospheric (dinner for four with wine $785). Will never return. Manager could not be located because had left the premises. No one was in charge. Awful.

My husband and I were looking forward to French Cuisine to celebrate our 33rd Anniversary. Pascal's was quite ordinary, disappointing, and not at all what we expected. We regret this reservation.

If you're looking for classic French food well prepared, this is the place. The Gruyere cheese Souflle is amazing as is the Gnocchi, which is not on the menu. The mussels are wonderful.

We went for lunch. The food was amazing from start to finish. My husband ordered a la carte and had appetizer, entre, and dessert. I ordered from the bistro lunch menus (fixed price for appetizer, entre, and dessert). The total with tip was $105.00, no drinks. Pricey, yes but it was worth it. Because is so pricey is not a lunch place that you go every week unless you are very wealthy. The reason that it did not get a 5 in ever category is because when you go in it has a musty smell but the smell goes away eventually. The place needs a little updating or refreshing to my taste.

Overall excellent. Mushroom soup with some of the best I’ve ever had. Thought the beef tenderloin was a little dry, especially when ordered medium rare. My wife loved her fish dish.

Food was outstanding and the service highly attentive but not overly present. This is a wonderful bistro with menu items for all. My only suggestion is that if you have a pre-fixed menu option - don’t have add on charges to that price. Set a flat price.

Had a wonderful dining experience and will come again and bring friends and family.

My husband and I went for a special occasion and we were not disappointed. The staff knows the perfect balance between being attentive and crowding you. They gave us the exact time we needed. It was not terribly busy so we were able to easily converse. The food was exceptional. Pascal’s is a neighborhood gem.

Pascal’s delivers authentic French cuisine best soufflés in town both the entré gruyere soufflé as the special of the day Raspberry soufflé for dessert. The Porcini Mushroom & Foie Gras Soup, Infused White Truffle Oil is exceptional! For the main dishes the veal cut was generous and perfectly cooked with the garlic mashed potatoes delicious and the endive perfectly cooked but a bit over priced! Ask what is the price of the special of the day before ordering ($67)!! As for the Australian Lamb Rack “Tartine” of Nicoise Olive, “Petit Farci’’, Pomme Dauphine, Jus d’Agneau Corse was perfectly cooked medium rare but could have expected more pieces for the price charged! The wine selection is ample and fair and the great and attentive service made you feel at home! Overall Pascal’s on Ponce is well worth a visit but they need to keep an eye on the prices to stay competitive in a town with many options. The culinary offers have blossomed in Miami in this last 20 years to become very competitive!
