Everything was excellent! Only issue would be the parking although provided, parked cars need to be shuffled to get one out.

Best meal I’ve had for the month I’ve been visiting South FL. Whole baked Branzino was “melt in your mouth” delicioso! Spinach and roasted potatoes cooked to perfection. Wait staff was very friendly......attentive and fun. Cannot wait to come back in October. Only one issue.....we were dining outside....started raining (end of meal) and no umbrellas for our table of six. Please order umbrellas for outside so all tables (if unexpected rainstorm) are covered. All in all a fabulous experience!

Nice outdoor setting in the courtyard. Menu was changed from what was online - eggplant crostini not there, other appetizers and entrees were added, and prices were increased. One of the new entrees was already gone by 7PM. Pastas were good but could have used a bit more flavor. Chocolate cake dessert was very rich. Service was good. Overall the experience was good, but we were disappointed with the menu changes and increased prices (bronzino went from $28 online to $34 on the menu).

Great for dates and special occasions. We ordered the cacio e pepe pasta and the mussels & clams. Both were delicious but the pasta was the star of the night!

Our third visit in the past two months and, once again, we found the food extraordinary and priced correctly. We ate indoors because of rain and found the table a bit small and the noise level high because too many people were inside instead of eating in the beautiful garden. Wow! A whole fish- maybe the best preparation we ever were lucky enough to have served to us. A wonderful MtEtba, Sicilian wine at $95.00 and a specially prepared ( to request) pasta as an appetizer. The BEST

Loved every single pasta dish we ordered! It was absolutely delicious and well priced.
I must say we were sitting outside mid-day and it was very hot so I would suggest booking a table inside as there were no fans available outside. At least I hope they will be for the summer because I would love to come back for diner and eat al fresco!

Appetizers quite good including grilled calamari and octopus. Pasta dishes were wonderful, we ordered the cacio e pepe (very rich) and gluten free pasta can be substituted. Branzino was very well done.
The only drawback is that we went on a Saturday and there was very loud drumming from the yoga studio next door. It was hard to hear each talk at the outdoor table.

Best Italian dining so far we’ve experienced in Miami. As we live almost half of the year in Italy, and my husband is from Parma, we know great food. We went last Friday, and he liked the food so much, as well as the ambiance in the beautiful garden, he wanted to have his birthday yesterday at Palat!
We were greeted warmly by the manager, Giorgio, and served by Vincenzo. The appetizers were divine, very big portions, followed by a pasta dish, Cacio e Pepe, which may now be my second favorite pasta of all time (first one is at La Chiglia in Portovenere, not to mention my husbands Tortelli!!)
I heartily recommend this fine restaurant!

Ordinato branzino come special,il prezzo più alto di quello scritto in lavagna all’interno. Si sono giustificati dicendo che doveva essere aggiornata.......😳😳😳
Crudités respinte cattivo sapore....

The food really was delicious but the service was terrible.

The waiting staff either don’t know their business, or generally don’t care about making the experience special for people.

Lots of room for improvement. Many better restaurants in the city than Palat...

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.
