Addictive desserts and fashionable cocktails round out the experience.

I love La Cote for the view and the service. But I would not recommend it for the food. Very spotty. Sometimes excellent. But not always. Based on my last experience I will not order any grilled fish again. Stick to the appetizers and sides.

we had an early dinner at La Cote for our anniversary. We sat upstairs (downstairs at the bar had a live band and it was really loud). Upstairs was more suitable to our anniversary meal. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the appetizers that we ordered. Our hostess really looked after us. All in all we had a great time and will definitely be going back.

My husband and i really enjoyed our afternoon at La Côte. The food and drinks were fabulous. We regularly dine out and i have to say the prosciutto wrapped asparagus with truffle oil is one of my all time favorite dishes. Great, lively atmosphere with live music.

Went to people watch and read. I sat in the back section looking for a quiet location to read my book. The Avocado Toast was superb! Wish I was back at La Cote now to order it again! The music was upbeat and the vibe was great. Music is louder by the bar - and it's more happening there - back section was quieter, but still had music and good vibe.

Nice view of the ocean from the second level. Had to move down because of potential rain but it was fine. Good service from our first and second wait staff. Food was very good just a little bit pricey but we knew that before we went there.

My daughter and I had a 5p dinner reservation - because that was the only one availalble. We didn't realize the place closes at 6p!! We sat upstairs and our waiter (cannot remember his name) was TERRIFIC - helpful, friendly, fun. The view was beautlful and even though there was a hopping DJ/Party at the bar right below us ...we still managed to have a nice conversation!! Food was outstanding - I got the crab cakes over mixed greens (instead of a bun) and my daughter had scallops ... DELICIOUS and highly recommend.

La Cote is a casual restaurant at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. Located between the pool and the beach, it has a lively, easy-going vibe. The menu includes a variety of delicious salads and sandwiches.

Great place to have lunch outside on a suny day. The food is good and healthy. The service is Excellent. I sad I am not sure I am going to like the desert they told me we'll offer you a second choice if you don't like the one you chose. That's service+++
So Fontainebleau stends for me for Excellence in all aspects. I highly recommand la Côte.

The parking was as expensive as the food and too hot, waitress not very attentive and forgot one of the drinks brought it at the end. The food was not good for being a French restaurant.

Miami Spice choices were wonderful to the eyes, and marvelous for the tongue. Definitely worth a revisit. $25 for parking (reduced to $15) is ridiculous. Appetizers were Rock Shrimp Ceveche, main was Snapper, dessert was crime brûlée. Everything was delicious.

I had a fly in the fries that was one side with my burger! I told the waiter and he acted so cool about it!!! Took the food to the kitchen and brought back another burger after 20min! He treated us with two chippy glass of Rose'! He charged us for the freaking burger and no one came to the table to at least apologize!

We were one hour late for our reservation and they still managed to find the perfect seat. The rooftop gave the perfect Oceanfront ambiance. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The dJ kept the upbeat environment. It started to rain and we still didn't want to leave

My group decided to dine here based on the other reviews. We made a reservation for Sunday lunch and were so pleased with the entire experience. We arrived on time and were seated right away on the second level of the restaurant. We asked for a seat near the water, which was accommodated. Our server was very friendly and provided great service, even though it was a holiday weekend. They had a DJ playing music below, which really added to the ambiance. The view is truly breathtaking, you can't go wrong coming here.

My first time eating at this hotel restaurant was to be highlighted by 2nd Flr seating, to afford view of the beach and ocean. Was called prior to my arrival to be informed that the 2nd Flr would be closed due to a private event. While sitting on ground level, eating, for more than 1 hour, I did not see any private event activity on the 2nd Flr.

It was a beautiful place to have lunch Fontaine Bleu in general is a gorgeous Hotel. The food was amazing and so were the drinks, pricey but worth it compared to other places in Miami. Only downside was the upper deck seating where we were hoping to sit since it was our first time there was unfortunately closed due to a private event.

Went to La Cote because of upper level view, first was told it was available, then the hostess said couldn't accommodate that request because they will have a banquet upstairs. We stayed around till 4pm, there was no banquet or setting up for it going on at all, probably just made that up because they did not want to serve food on the upper level, but that's the only reason we went there!

Gorgeous view can't make up for the mediocre and seriously overpriced food. Raw bar was especially poor. Warm oysters -- yuck.
