Quaint elegance.
Gruyere cheese soufflé was excellent: Much enjoyed. Tenderloin was a quality cut of beef and prepared perfect to our specifications. Enjoyable evening.

My wife and I had not been to Pascal's in quite some time, so I wanted to come back for my birthday / our anniversary and see if it was as good as I remembered. We started off with the beet/pear salad (menu item) and the lobster bisque (special that weekend) which were both excellent. For our main course, she ordered the beef tenderloin/filet mignon and I had the lamb. Her tenderloin was excellent and well paired with the potato and asparagus sides. My lamb was also quite good except it was slightly overcooked (had ordered medium rare and came medium to medium-well). For dessert, we just had the chocolate soufflé which was the perfect ending to our meal.

This place is such a gem! It’s so rare to receive stellar customer service, and this place knocks it out of the park. I will be back next month when I’m in town again. Thank you for a wonderful lunch!

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.

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.

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.

Food took way too long to arrive and once it did the meat was overdone. Would not have been so negative about the experience except that the manager brought the meat back to the table twice to convince me that it really was medium rare after battling with the chef. Amazing - at these prices. Restaurant is pretty and food tasty otherwise.

The food was wonderful, the environment elegant not pretentious. The waiter however, almost derailed the entire night. He was arrogant, condescending and hovering. Hovering that is until we wanted to order then we had to call him over.
We were very lucky that the Miami Spice menu was available that evening. The restaurant offered some additional items for an up charge. It was very self explanatory on the menu. As we started to order, the waiter stopped us and almost started shouting to the point that people at a nearby table turned to look to explain "it was his duty to point out that there was an additional fee."
He seemed disappointed when we all said "yes" we read that. After dessert he disappeared never to be seen again.
It was really a shame.
We were there to celebrate two birthdays, enjoy wonderful French food and have a good time. He almost changed all of that.

As most French restaurants, the price point was on the high side. However, the cuisine, ambiance and service were also on the plus side. We will certainly return and we recommend Pascals as an excellent choice for a fine dining experience.
