It was my first time going to Palat restaurant. It was my Birthday the servers name was Salvatore he gave great service very knowledgeable about the menu and friendly. The owner was also very friendly he came over and checked on us multiple times. The food was amazing it was some of the best real Italian that I have had since I moved from Italy.

Very nice service, but food was just okay. My osso bucco linguini was served lukewarm, and when I requested fresh shaved parm, I received a small bowl of powder-like parm. Not at all what I expected. Caesar salad lacked flavor and was quite mayonnaisey. The whole branzino was nice. Desserts were delicious.

This was one of the worst experiences I’ve had dining. When I arrived I asked the maître d’ if it was hot in the courtyard where I was scheduled for and his comment was you just came from outside. I then asked him if there was flexibility to sit inside and he said I had to decide immediately because they were fully booked. In fact, they were not fully booked and there were lots of spaces both inside and out the entire evening.. The fish we ordered was so bad I wouldn’t eat it but my friend was so hungry he ate it and insisted on ordering me another meal since I wasn’t eating anything. I will never go back and will make sure to let those I know of my experience.

The food was really delicious and the wait service was especially attentive but never bothersome. We sat outside, which was a pleasant surprise since our last visit. The jets from MIA were a little noisy, but not so much as to deter another visit. So far, have told 2 friends of our great meal:)

The food was very fresh, We order the zucchini fried with the Ricotta cheese was delicious. The calamari was very very chewy we couldn’t eat it. The pasta with the meat was delicious and the fish was good. The outside area it’s not very pretty the didn’t spend enough energy for the outside setting.

Food excellent.
Price very good for the quality.
The policy of the place btw is weird. My wife got in the place before me while I was parking and the manger ask her to wait outside at 9 pm at night instead of offer her to sit at the bar as everybody doing.
And I can tell, the local is super beautiful but the area to wait outside is not the beat in the world.
The manger told us that they will work on this policy. Let’s see.

Food was very good. Best cacio e pepe I've ever had in Miami.
Service was OK, our waiter was not the most nice...
Dining al fresco in the patio was delightful, although the chairs were not that comfortable.
Overall a good experience. I will come back for more cacio e pepe ;)
One BIG problem: PARKING. You will spend hours trying to find a spot.

Not your standard pasta dishes. Appetizers are excellent: octopus, peppers, frutti di mari.
Main dishes and pasta are well made and well presented. Measured portions but not small. Pasta is abundant when ordered.

Shrimp was not great, Branzino quite good. OK overall, possibly the pasta is a better choice.
