Not much you can do about the noise when it's packed, but that's the only downside. Always a reliable and top flight experience.

Poor service attention at arrival. Excellent foot. Kind of pricy

It was a Valentine's Day dinner and the restaurant was not well prepared for the number of customers. Reservation's time was not respected, service was slow and food not as good as usual.

We went for Valentine's Day and the price fix menu was delicious and a great value. Valentine's Day can be a nightmare, but our 6:00 seating was perfect and the better choice since the later it got the busier it got because it is such a special place to dine.
Food was fantastic! The chateaubriand melted in your mouth and it was cooked to perfection!
Service was sensational! The water glass always stayed full.
Cocktails were delicious! I recommend the margarita martini.
This is one of our favorite dining places when we go out to dinner. Kudos to Pascals and Chef Pascal.

Great quaint essential French restaurant. A favrite standard for the locals, very intimit and well worth the time. Fresh fish every evening and chef knows how to create something special. Duck confit is exceptional, but save room for great deserts and mandatory espresso.

Pascals on Ponce enjoys a high reputation in Miami, and the prices reflect this (entrees average $45). Accordingly, we expected a first-rate French meal. Instead, we endured one of the worst meals I have ever eaten in Miami, or anywhere for that matter, let alone in an establishment presenting itself as a high-end culinary institution. We had to send back the sword fish (that day's special), which came to us lukewarm and surprisingly flavorless (it was nothing other than a minimally seasoned piece of baked fish, as far as I could tell). The scallops also arrived on the cold side. We asked that they be redone, and the second time around, the dish was more successful. We also ordered the duck confit. The crust was unusually hard, the interior excessively fatty. Duck confit is a favorite of mine, and this is the only time in my life that I have left a portion largely uneaten.

On the plus side, there was a good selection of wines by the glass (although they were out of my first choice), and the chocolate soufflé was successful (and complimentary).

The same chef operates Brasserie Centrale in Merrick Park, which is much less expensive and also better. Maybe Pascal's needs a new kitchen staff. Or maybe they were having an off day. For now, I recommend avoiding the place.

I ALWAYS eat here at least once when visiting Miami. I have NEVER been disappointed. Great food, good service, convenient, and good value.

you aren't going to be surprised at Pascal's. the food is reliably excellent and nicely presented. the menu is very unchanging and that is either a virtue or a bit boring. what they offer they do very well. maybe it's time to be a bit more adventurous with the menu.

This is an absolutely superb restaurant. Fine dining as it should be. It's our favourite place in Miami. Try to get seated in Angelo's section - he's the best!

The occasion was date night with my wife and we truly enjoyed ourselves and had a great dining experience. The wine list is very good and there are a couple of moderately priced wines to match any menu item. Service was impeccable and friendly. The only minor drawback is the price point . . . it is expensive but worth it.

Excellent but expensive. I had the salmon and it was as good as it comes. My wife had lamb chops also excellent.
