Mediterranean
Marfil Bistro opens for lunch and dinner, we offer an à la carte, where you can find a merger of the traditional modern kitchen, with a selection of dishes recommended by our creative Chef.
We recommend you to try the "Rack of Lamb" it's come over Himalayan salt board with grilled root vegetables and rosemary kalamata tapenade. You also cannot miss the "Mediterranean stuffed Branzino" that comes with giant beans salad and don’t forget a nice bottle of wine from our extensive wine cellar that will highlight all the flavors of your food. For dessert, we suggest "La Bola", a large sphere of chocolate, flamed until its chocolate soufflé and vanilla ice cream is discovered, we are sure this will complement your wonderful experience.

Marfil Bistro never disappoints, it’s one of our favorites at Doral. We went for Thanksgiving with my husband and we had a very pleasant time. Everything was delicious but we want to specially highlight the desserts. They were truly awesome. The staff made us feel at home, thank you.

The service was impeccable, the waiter's recommendations were amazing. We tried 9 different dishes, all of which were phenomenal. We especially liked the tenderloin carpaccio, the salmon carpaccio, the burrata, the seafood on fire, and the dessert known as La Bola, a fiery and delicious finale. The restaurant was very clean and very tastefully decorated. We had an outstanding experience and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great spot for some fine dining.

It’s unfortunate that the service or food was not good as the place is very pretty. This was our (party if 8) second visit We were pleased on our first visit as they had a Sax player and the food was very good. This time there was no live music. For what we paid, I don’t feel that we received a good value for our food, I ordered the Rack of Lamb - the meat was very dried and it seemed that it was frozen.

We were asked to sit outside because our husbands were wearing shorts. We were all nicely dressed but was told that dinner was a different dress code. The ladies we’re wearing dresses and the men were wearing shorts and dressy cubanera shirts.
We later witnessed other guests that arrived wearing shorts seated inside. Not cool.

We sat in the outside garden patio. It was super comfortable and relaxed. The breeze was nice and the ambiance also. I'm glad we sat outside because the inside dining room was full and extremely noisy. Our server Alex was amazing! Very thorough and attentive to our needs. The seafood appetizer was awesome as were the drinks. We had the duck and the lamb chops. Both plates were delicious! And for dessert the tiramisu just the right size to share and not very sweet. Just perfect! Prices are a little bit high but the food and service made it all worth it.

We had the Short Ribs, as well as, the Osso Bucco. They were good but not Great.

In my opinion the Short Ribs were much too sweet and the Risotto had much too much cheese in it. This was my husbands dish.

I on the other hand had the Osso Bucco which I found to be extremely tender (falling off the bone) and flavorful. The Saphron Risotto was delightful. I would give it a 4 out of 5 as I've had Osso Bucco in the past made with a Red Wine Reduction which I find much more preferable to this one...but it's a close 2nd in my opinion.

We enjoyed "La Bolla" for desert which was fun. I did not like to quality of the chocolate used to make the chocolate sphere and since this actually melts onto the dessert it was a little of a let down for me...but the concept is fantastic!

I'm buying a 5" sphere to make them at home as my husband also loved the concept and want to taste it with a good quality chocolate.

The place was very nice, the food was delicious and the service was amazing. The alcohol tasted cheap, even the orange scented brandy that melted our dessert. Overall I will go back just for the great food and the excellent service. Did I mentioned how phenomenal the service was?! Because it was 20 out of 10.

Cuando llegamos no fue respetada la reserva de opentable ya que no tenian mesas disponibles, sin embargo nos dieron una mesa en la parte exterior. El servicio excelente al igual que el sabor y calidad de los alimentos. Exageradamente ruidoso, cuando no era el saxofonista…era la musica ambiental lo que no permitió a uno platicar.

When we first arrived, there was a long line at the door just to check in with the hostess. Considering it was raining and humid outside this wasn’t the best start to our evening. After 15 minutes we were able to check in and the hostess said there were no tables at the time, so we had to wait (this is with a reservation). Finally, we were able to sit and order drinks. No one came over to apologize for the inconvenience or wait time. Veronica, who was our server was amazing! She was friendly, professional and courteous with us. It seems like she understood the frustration of the customers that night. She made our evening so much better! The drinks and appetizers came pretty quickly. The cocktails were delicious and the appetizers were tasty! We had a long wait before dinner was served. However, the food was delicious! We both enjoyed meals with lobster and we both loved our meals. Perhaps it was even worth the haste and wait. Clearly the food, servers, live music, and ambience make this place a good place to visit. Despite the arrival and seating issues, I would definitely like to give this place another try. I know restaurants are having staffing issues, so perhaps this was just a bad night for them. The Nutella bread pudding was also a great treat! I give it 4 stars and a must try on perhaps a less busy night.
