WAy to noisy. Service and kitchen were uneven at best
Loved the food & our waiter was very attentive. Unfortunately, not the same level of service at the bar :(
Good food, good concept,
Service need improvement
Small dining area very noisy
Big dining area need to warmer and more painting
Not worth the money, Food was mediocre at best. Save your money go elsewhere! Dined there two nights , they just couldn’t get it right either time.
really overrated.. nothing special about it..
Valentine’s Day. Service was slow. Food was very good
Special Menu this night was very good and provided very interesting options and wine pairing. Despite the very busy evening , they managed to provide a Very good experience!
The cuisine was next level amazing and the wait staff was courteous and helpful. 10/10 would dine again.
I'm sorry to have to write this as I know and love Daniel. Maybe a makeup call is needed. The lobster was over cooked. The timing was awful. The wine pairings were timed all wrong; some times 10 minutes before the food and some times 10 minutes after. For example the dessert came and it took 15 minutes for the wine pairing to come so we just ate the dessert. All in it was just terrible. Service, food, timing, everything was off. What a shame that such an amazing chef is judged by the last thing her serves.
Great Ambiance, however the Risotto was a bit bland, the lamb was definitely not seasoned correctly, salad was drenched in dressing, not very appetizing. I felt the service was OK but I ordered a cappuccino and it never arrived. The best part of the night was the desert. good desert. Probably would not go here again, I wasn't completely pleased.
Service was not very good. Wine got to our table as we were about to have our entrees, server forgot our amuse bouche although we asked 3 times. Finally brought it out after entrees. Had trouble getting a hold of him the whole night except when it Came time for the check. We finished dessert and he immediately dropped the check although we were not finished with our bottle of wine. Food was mediocre at best.
For a top chef, the meal disappointed. Of course it was good, but I expected more.
The high noise level and the freezing temperatures really took away from a Boulud experience!! The back room we were seated in had a very cold, boring feel to it-not the warm Mediterranean feel we expected.
Also, very difficult to find!
This is a renovation of the old DB Bistro! The food is no longer french but, more Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and some Italian all mixed in! I can't say I'm wowed by the need design, not that there was anything particularly wrong just not exciting We were showered with attention by the Maitre d, who explained all the in's and out's of the new menu, making suggestions along the way! All very nice, but then no waiter came by for a good 20 minutes?? Then, they got some of our order wrong, but the food was actually very good. My husband's pasta appetizer, the orecchiette, was delicious, our Mezze platter was outstanding! The Lamb chops were okay, the Skirt Steak which I shared with a friend was flavorful but cold. All in all, we really liked the food but, the service was very uneven, which I hope they smooth out as they settle in!
My 6th Baloud in 2 months. I’m addicted. Food is fabulous and the service is unmatched.
The food was excellent and the new remodelled decor stunning. The staff at DB Sud was very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed dinner was excellent wine pairings at each course. We plan to return often ! The attached lounge was spacious but cozy too.
The food was wonderful and the staff was outstanding. Our waiter, Johanan, went above and beyond in every way possible. Highly recommend this restaurant.
We had been to Daniel Boulard's DBModern several times, always enjoyed. We wanted to try the new evolution and it is outstanding. Excellent in all ways. Our server Gabriel and manager Christoph made excellent selections and were appropriately attentive, on time, and knowledgeable.....and fun. We had the octopus, heirloom tomatoes, Bronzino, and chicken tanginess, all were excellent. We usually do not have dessert but he selections looked great so we tried the chocolate cube and ice cream and enjoyed these very very much. We will be back
The food was great, on the “smallish” side, but delicious! Service was the killer, our waiter Ricardo made sure we were having a good time, asking about our likes, making suggestions/recommendations, would definitely recommend
I had eaten at the old DB Bistro and wasn't that impressed so was hesitant to try his new restaurant. I am glad we did as this place wasn't pretentious French food. It was authentic, delicious food with a Mediterranean flair. Chef Daniel Boulud has done a great job with this restaurant. The prices are reasonable and not out of line with any other quality restaurant in the Miami area. We had artichoke and short rib appetizers and they were delicious and different. Main course we had the lamb chops from the grill and the chicken tagine which were both tender and very flavorful. We had wine and cocktails as well as a dessert and coffee. The chocolate fondant dessert was exquisite, light yet rich. Perfect end to a wonderful dinner. Will definitely be back. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and fun, not like the stuffy waiter we had when we went to DB several years back. Many of the wait staff are from the original DB but seem to have adapted a light attitude to accompany the food. Highly recommend this place
Worked great. Business meal. Not too loud so we could talk. Food was tasty - fresh pasta worth it. Charming servers. Good wine list though not much at value prices. Glad we went!
Honestly I almost never leave reviews
I was a chef for 25 years, and owned my own restaurants and know how tough the business are and how a bad review often is just not fair.
We went down to Miami for 6 weeks.
Before arriving I created a list of everywhere we wanted to eat and we ate out EVERY night. From the very best to foodie hole in the wall places.
This was our worst meal. The male french manager was SO BAD, its amazing he's got a job there when we came to our table he lent over and put one hand on each corner and stood over us and joked with us in French (we had friends in from Paris, who were AMAZED and one told him how bad out meal was)
Food lacked at EVERY STAGE. some dishes didn't come.
We asked for the check and waited and waited and left after leaving most the dishes and went to Le Petite Maison which was great.
Wonderful experience from start to finish. Grilled octopus was a fantastic way to begin the meal, and the Greek cab Christoff suggested was unexpected and delightful. We both loved our entrees and devoured dessert. Our server Gabriel was incredibly knowledgeable and well-paced through our meal. As noted, the manager & sommelier Christoff was a wonderful host.
The restaurant was good but not great. The food was quite good but the space was lacking in personality--your typical garishly decorated Marriott lobby feel. It would be quite worthwhile if you are staying in the hotel or in the neighborhood--good food, good service, convenient--but I'm not sure I would bother returning given all the compelling choices in Miami. Again, everything they did was fine, i.e. food and service, but it just didn't have any energy (at least at 7:00-8:00). I applaud them for having good food at a J.W.Marriott.
DB Bistro was a miami favorite. Not sure why it was changed to Bolud Sud, but it’s a very disappointing change. Won’t be going back.
The service was superb. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was delicious.
Overall the experience was very good. At the beginning the service was a little bit slow. But then it got much better. I guess the waitstaff are listening to our conversation about the service. So they are listening and are willing to provide you a good dining experience , so for me that’s a plus. The food was very good. My ossobucco was delicious and so is my partner’s steak. The flat bread was excellent. The cocktails are divine. Thanks for a very good evening.
Truly spectacular; from the moment you arrive until your very last bite, an exquisite experience. There was nothing on that menu we didn’t want to try, and everything we ordered was delicious: the mezze, the flatbreads, the tagines, ossobucco, the branzino, all the sides... all to die for. And the service is excellent, they don’t miss a beat! Super nice, prompt but never rushed. Just great. We are definitely going back!!!
This is such a great revision to the original
DBModerne concept. Menu creative. Something for everyone . Service great. Grapefruit granite was a special desert.
