Three tables full whole time and we still had to look around for help. Dessert of vanilla ice cream chocolate sauce profiteroles was very bland and boring. Spinach soup delicious. Just tired.

Absolutely wonderful experience. We enjoyed the Miami Spice menu and it was perfectly portioned, complimented by its options, and the service was exceptional. Our waiter, Hermès, was kind, attentive and prompt. Bruno was accommodating by helping myself, my friend and her young child moving our table from outside to inside due to impending inclement weather...which was so appreciated. Thank you Pascals on Ponce for a great first experience!

Went to enjoy their Miami Spice and it was great. Service was great, very courteous and food was very good. Presentation and taste was on point. The restaurant was crowded but somehow they all managed to stay on top of service.

Classic French cuisine. Always a go to place. Ate during Miami Spice, which was an additional value! A little busy as they had set up extra tables. Service suffered a little.

My wine glass had red wine all over the outside. Got on my hands. Had to clean it with my napkin.
Terrine served without crusty bread. Bread offered when I had one bite left.
Salmón entre under seasoned. No salt or pepper on table to remedy.
Very attentive albeit disorganized service but for $200 for two diners for two appetizers two entres and two glasses of wine I expect impecable service and quality.
I’d like to try some other menu items but feel uncertain about investing another 200 pre gratuity.

Excellent service. Unhurried and efficient. Food quality was superb. Portions of sides too small. Wine prices reasonable, but $5.50 for American coffee a bit too much!

We have never had a bad meal here, and the Miami Spice menu is a remarkable value. The French food is at a level that matches what you would get at a fine restaurant in France. We paid premium for the chocolate soufflé, and it was worth it.

Fantastic as always. It was the first time we brought my elderly dad back to his and mom’s favorite restaurant after her passing and they were so kind and accommodating.
We’ve always loved Pascal’s because every bite is ALWAYS delicious.

This is my favorite restaurant. To my chagrin, when I arrived, the waitress seemed...less than friendly. When we asked for the degustation menu to be paired with wine, however, she seemed to take us seriously. Service from there on out was fantastic. It was just disappointing to seemingly not be taken seriously upon arrival until it became clear we were going to spend some decent money. Considering there was only one other table seated at the time, I don’t think they should make a habit of judging books by the lie covers.

I will be back, because the food is to die for, and the atmosphere is just lovely. I hope that I don’t encounter such an unpleasant beginning to my experience when I return.

Fantastic experience! It was everything we thought it would be and more! We've been wanting to go for so long and the wait payed off! Top notch team work, amazing service provided by Greg! Food is a fantasy, we even got to meet Chef Pascal Oudin, who was very personable and accommodating! This place is a foodie's dream, laced with wonderful and inventive French cuisine! It's a must try when in Miami! Thank you so very much for everyone at Pascal's on Ponce, you've made our experience an incredible one!

If the Miami spice menu would have been accurate online as well as day of, I might have given it a 5 stars. Also server did not seem to care for us as valued guests, it was average at best. Short ribs were too chewy..., needed more cooking time... duck confit would have been a better choice than duck Breast. The chocolate soufflé did not disappoint but the add on full price did. Terrine first plate and mussels were excellent!

Not to french
Overpriced

The food was ok totally average not related with the price
I orderda glass od champagne for $18 in an ordinary glass, same thing with the silverware, too ordinary ,like the high volume restaurant.
The rest decoration is outdated
We will not come back

Lugar sencillo pero con buen ambiente, de entrada nos comimos los millones que estaban muy ricos y un terrine, que estaba espectacular, la combinación de los pepinillos cortados en miniatura y una especie de mermelada de higo además con pera, muy bueno. De segundo una especie de magret de pato a la naranja que estaba bien.

Enjoyed the Miami Spice menu with upgrades. Delicious French cuisine. Highly recommend the Gruyere appetizer soufflé. There is an up charge but well worth it. The duck was exquisite. Service is impeccable. I highly recommend this restaurant for Miami Spice Menu 2018 but I definitely will return for Steak Tartare at another date.
