The restaurant was a very beautiful low-lit environment. The service was exceptional. The food presentation and taste was just phenomenal. It tasted so fresh and well worth the price.

La comida de las mejores de Miami, la persona que nos atendió, Alexander muy conocedor de los platos, informa y recomienda de forma excepcional, no es solo un mesero es una persona que sabe y conoce todos los platos y por su ayuda pudimos disfrutar una excelente velada. Soy Chef de primera y mis felicitaciones al equipo de cocina insuperables.

They were very attentive . We arrived late and they still served us. A real spirit of service. Because of late tardiness the food was cooked in a rush. Too bad we could not enjoy their excellence. Thankyou

Parking for lunch is a serious problem with very little on-street parking with no valet for lunch and neighboring streets reserved for residents only.
The bathrooms need updating.

Food was amazing, definitely recommend the Cacio e Pepe. The only complaint was the parking, it is very limited and we had to park far and walk to the restaurant.

Palat is a charming first class Italian restaurant. In addition, there is an amazing outdoor patio with tropical foliage if you prefer to sit outdoors. We shared many delicious dishes which were beautifully presented. Everything we tasted melted in our mouths, especially the crispy branzino and pollo alla griglia. Compliments to the Chef! There was an intensive wine list and a wonderful dessert list, do try the pistachio gelato and the pannacotta with a touch of mango puree. Our servers were very informative about the menu and attentive. They were part of our great experience. The service we received was so awsome and we will definitely be back again. Excellent place to have an Italian meal in Miami!

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.
