    Palat was excellent. The food was served hot, the portions were generous and the flavors were delicious. The servers were very attentive. My one disappointment was at the end of the meal - we ordered coffees and a dessert. The dessert came out quickly and the coffees took an extra 15 minutes which seemed excessive and made us feel like we were waiting.

    The prosciutto starter was delicious and filling. The two pastas we tried, freshly made, were also delicious. Sadly, the restaurant was nearly empty so there wasn’t much atmosphere. Our server was friendly and chatty.

    Having dined here before my husband and I were happy to return with friends. The service was attentive and friendly. The menu selection remains well thought out and our favorites remained and they also offered menu specials. Wines also good. We shall continue to dine here as a favorite spot in the Buena Vista neighborhood.

    What a great night. We had a four-hour layover with a group of friends at MIA. Instead of struggling to find an adequate meal inside the airport, we opted to venture outside of the airport and dine at at Palat (only about 10 minutes away the airport by Uber and very highly rated). We might have considered South Beach but were afraid of accidents/traffic on the causeway. Let me tell you, Palat did not disappoint. Everyone loved their meals -- from pasta to fish (with wine pairings), everything was exceptional. The service was excellent, too. Highly recommend Palat to locals, to visitors, and to people just passing through town!

    A lovely new find! Enjoyed every dish we ordered - delicious food, both appropriately portioned and priced. Wonderful atmosphere. It was perfect for a dinner for two, but would definitely serve well for a large party. Will definitely be back and will probably bring a larger crew next time!

    The place is very nice and we enjoyed the mussels and clams however the sea bass was good but was too greasy to enjoy it all. I tried to pay in cash but was told they had no change.. how can a restaurant not have 60 dollars??!! Thank god I had a card since i was going to leave it behind . Overall it’s a nice place but i would not come back.

    Wonderful place to explore Miami Spice, it's my 3rd visit during this month. Lunch was outstanding as usual. We ordered food from both the regular menu and Miami Spice menu. Best grilled octopus in South Florida, perhaps the whole state. The deserts, pannocata and gelato, is always fresh and delicious. Intensive wine list. Great service and staff, as always. Charming environment. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommended!

    Palat is absolutely the best Italian restaurant in South Miami. It's my favorite restaurant in Florida. I've eaten there more than a dozen time with family and friends within the past year. The atmosphere is very charming. The food is always delicious and well presented. Doesn’t matter what I get I end up liking it, especially the branzino and deserts. Their Miami Spice menu is worth exploring too. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. They are extremely knowledgeable about their menus and make great wine recommendations from their extensive wine list. Highly recommended!!!
