Good solid French cooking. Food is tasty and good. Service not up to fine dining standards. Feel more like a countryside French Bistro. Fair value.

Wr arrived on Friday at 7:50 pm for our 8 pm reservation right behind another couple who also reserved. The hotel desk clerk confirmed the reservations and told all of us to have a seat and wait a few minutes. At 8:10 pm another couple came in and were greeted by the captain and shown to their seats. At 8:20 pm I rang the phone as no employees were around. The captain and desk clerk came running and a five minutes later showed the couple who arrived first to a table. At 8:40 pm I asked the hotel desk clerk how much longer itcwoukd be and he replied he would have to ask. No I am sorry. Bar closed entire time. We walked out. Terrible attitude and zero service. Stay away.

This restaurant is a hidden gem! My wife and I recently visited Pied-a-Terre for our 17th wedding anniversary. It was our 3rd time visiting the restaurant. The service, food and atmosphere were exceptional as always.

The owner, Patrick, was most congenial. The food was a taste delight. I had the beef, which was cooked medium rare, and to perfection. My wife had the duck, and enjoyed it all. The wait person was helpful and quite pleasant.
Efficient service. Talented chef. A perfect place for a quiet meal.
If we lived in South Beach, this would be a regular, go to choice.
In addition to the cozy dining surroundings, Pied a Terre also offers a beautiful poolside Oasis for dining on special occasions.

Our party (as I was) was disappointed with the quality of the meal served to us and the wine recommendation. We frequently dine out, be it Florida, Naples, New York and in Continental Europe, and the Pied a Terre has missed the mark as a fine dining experience given the choice of excellent dining options in Miami. I do not recommend Pied a Terre to anyone seeking fine food.

Opted for Miami Spice menu. Selections weren't that appealing without paying up charge. Portions were rather small. On the plus size food was rather tasty but not worth the price. Overall a disappointment. Won't return any time soon.

Miami Spice was launched 18 years ago. The price of the dinner was $39.00. Today it is still $39 for a 3 course menu.. During the period the inflation has been up 48%. We are left with 2 options: use our regular products or buy cheap stuff of low quality to build the Miami Spice menu. Many restaurants opt for the second solution, we don't. We provide the same quality as for regular menus. Foie gras, lamb are expensive items it cannot be expected to have big portions for $39.00 (3 courses).

We were in south beach for the week and we intended on eating at the best restaurants all week and we reserved all the fine dining highly rated restaurants that were indicated on TripAdvisor. Without mentioning the names of all the other restaurants, this was by far not only the most well prepared food but also the most perfectly paired wines to go with every course and best ambiance for a special occasion.

The food was amazing and the mushroom risotto is a must. The tables were lovely but the lighting was distracting, it was a little too bright and the restaurant was too warm. It’s a small restaurant that seats about 45 people and there were 3 people taking orders and bringing out food so trying to flag one of them down for more wine proved to be a challenge. The wine list is extensive and their wines by the glass were quite nice.

This small restaurant is tucked away on the second floor of a boutique hotel one block off Collins Avenue so location is great. The food and service were wonderful. I appreciated the wine pairings Patrick suggested for my meal choices. After dinner walking back up Collins, passing the folks at the eateries on the avenue, I couldn't help thinking, "You don't know what you're missing."

Absolutely brilliant service and unique approach to French cuisine. We were catered for and looked after and foot from the moment we entered.

The owner looked after us personally, bringing us limited edition wines to taste and entertaining us throughout the evening whilst we dined on incredible Michelin star quality creations.
