Food and service was outstanding. My husband & I had the whole roasted branzino that was delicious. Our guests wanted a cocktail before dinner but they only have beer & wine for the time be being. Once they expand, they expect to have a full liquor license.

Love. this. Place.

Wanted a quiet outdoor gourmet meal that accommodated a GF and a pro gluten couple. They took excellent care of us! The food portions were generous. The aalad super fresh and crisp. Don’t miss the black truffle pasta it’s exceptional!
Superior wine list. Attentive service but quiet and friendly. Sophisticated yet relaxed. Just cannot say enough good things. A little out of the way but definitely worth the trip. Do not miss dining here!!!

My second time at palat and I always enjoy myself. Service, food, and ambiance is really great.

I’m honestly surprised that it isn’t more packed! Not complaining. The quiet is nice and the staff gives great attention.

Great ambiance; great food; great service. Pasta "Cacio E Pepe" is terrific. Rib eye steak was done exactly medium rare… Red wine from Sardinia paired perfectly. You feel very welcomed there. Overall a great experience!!!

Great food. Bonafide Italian. Nice menu. I will return. Even with reservations and not being crowded, there is a slow down at check in, waiting where there is no room. Not enough smiles from the Captains, the waitstaff is attentive. A common malady of successful restaurants, the front of the house is not reflective of the graciousness of the ownership, kitchen or the waitstaff. one blemish in a new perfect experience.

Early dinner at "Palat" was a memorable experience. Excellent food. I enjoyed every single bite of the meal, especially the desert. Great atmosphere and cozy. The servers were wonderful. Highly recommended Italian restaurant if you are in Design District, Wynwood, and Buena Vista areas.

Very nice for a romantic dinner, service is perfect.
Wine selection is very surprising, we had the Montepulciano, outstanding.
Obviously try the "TaglioniIi “Cacio E Pepe”, their speciality, don't eat 6 hours before to enjoy ;)
I live in the city for 6 years, their Cheesecake is just amazing, best I had in Unites States, we ordered a second one and share with our neighbor, they agreed!

We had a wonderful experience. It was our first time dining at Palat. The good was delicious, the ambience friendly & the service was excellent.

I am hard of hearing so the restaurant was a bit noisy but this would not deter me from returning.

The Miami spice menu here is a must! We had the tuna tartare (my fave), fried calamari, cacio & pepe with truffle, papardelle ossobucco, tiramisu and chocolate temptation. Food presentation was gorgeous and everything tasted great. The portion sizes were impressive and we had to bring some home. Elegant place with a perfect date night vibe. Only downside was they had wine only and no cocktails, but I will definitely still go back!
