Pasta with seafood was poor , calamari was chewy

All of our dishes were excellent. The eggplant caponata appetizer was served warm which was surprising, but it worked. The cacio e peppe, tossed in a round of pecorino was delicious as was the amatriciano and the pappardelle in an osso buco ragu. They have valet parking so don’t bother trying to find parking on your own unless you really want to walk. The neighborhood is residential so you need a parking permit.

We started with the sheshito peppers, which were excellent followed by the famous cacio e pepe and the branzino, all of which were excellent. Service was great, attentive but not overwhelming. The atmosphere was wonderful and the price was fair. I would definitely go back.

My pasta was served cold. My entire family had finished their meal until mine was brought back out. Didn’t offer to comp my meal or a glass of wine while I waited. Once my food came back out, the server was annoyed that he had to bring me a new pasta dish. Very disappointed

Food was good; service attentive; good value. But lacks ambiance. Feels like a lunchroom. Turn down the lights a bit, try small lights on the tables, maybe put all the little kids at tables in the front dining room?

I was running late for a reservation I had that was close to close. Palat ended up keeping the kitchen open so that me and my friends could order for a birthday dinner. The staff was the best. They helped to keep my friend’s cake a secret. Everything was great. Thank you!

We needed more vegetarian (non pasta) options. We ordered all the sides, and all of the food was delicious, but at least one vegetarian non pasta meal would have felt better. Service was great, setting is gorgeous, food was delicious, crowd was hip, live music (super cool trombone playing jazz) was amazing. Thank you!

Tried a new venue for dinner on a recommendation and we were not disappointed.
Food was delicioso 😋. Good wine list as well.
We had a table for 6 in a back corner, which was a little quieter but we were not “forgotten”.
Vincenzo and his servers were very attentive and provided excellent service.
As this was a first time dining at Palat Miami, Paulo, the manager, did not charge any corkage fee for the wine we brought👍
Will definitely return.

We drive from Coral Gables to eat here and it is worth it! This is a fine dining and service experience but with a fun and relaxed atmosphere that works for date night or a dinner with the whole family. The branzino is delicate and delicious, the pasta with truffles shaved at the table is amazing. The wine list is one of the best values in Miami. Paolo and his team are all from Italy and will make you feel like family.

Unbelievable meal!! We frequent at the Lamberti family of restaurants often in the NJ area and we were so excited to try their newest restaurant while visiting Miami. We had high expectations knowing how excellent the restaurants are up north; rest assured we were not disappointed at Palat!
Ambiance was a great mix of upscale, relaxed, and modern. Service was EXCELLENT - Vincenzo and Paolo were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food/wine.
The food was exceptional! We started with the octopus small plate which was so tasty and cooked to perfection. Second, we shared the homemade crab ravioli in a lobster bisque sauce special which was to die for. Lastly, we shared the tomahawk steak which was one of the best we’ve ever had! Presentation & service during all the courses was first class. We will definitely be back next time we’re in the area. Palat comes highly recommended!

Very dimly lit I must say. My girlfriend and I appreciated the decor of the restaurant and I myself was a big fan of the use of plates for the various dishes. The balsamic vinegar given to us table side to us for our bread.... HEAVEN. Such a nice sweet addition to the olive oil which we both adored. Very good quality oil. We had the Bruschetta, which my lady mentioned felt fresh and not pre cut or made the day before. Lots of fresh flavors and the balsamic on top of that only made it better. Our clams and mussels came next, also very good and the tomatoes added another dimension to the dish. We had the rabbit as our entree; very flavorful, not too game-y but we did have bones in our pasta. It blended in with the pasta so it was hard to tell until we bit into it. A few bone pieces but nothing detrimental. We ended with the Ricotta cheesecake and that was a very nice way to end the evening. We definitely plan on visiting again rather soon in the near future. We appreciate the hospitality given to us by your crew.

My second visit to this place. First one was a business diner. It was OK.This time experience was much worse. Food was not bad. It was a lunch meal in September. Parking is so small that it is almost disrespectful. Miami Spice menu was not offered at once, we had to request it. If a restaurant is part of an initiative like this, not offering the menu and inducing customers to chose more expensive options, it is for me enough reason not to return. And on top of that, every 5 minutes there was someone interrupting the conversation to ask if everything was OK.
