Le Zoo is an energetic celebration of timeless French-Mediterranean flavors. Capturing the coveted common ground between European elegance and effortless South Florida sophistication, the 200-seat restaurant is a special place where gilded Old World decor plays alongside tropical planters and vintage French design touches. The food, drawing deeply from the refined cooking of Provence, is a transporting experience, ranging from the freshest fruits de mer and chic pizzas to pristine carpaccios, tartares and other signatures of Gallic coastal cuisine. Serving lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, Le Zoo brings out Francophile in all of us.

    Great casual lunch with high quality food. Had the caviar, kumomoto oysters, scallops foie gras and hamachi. Love this place. The only thing is they didn't validate parking, which I thought was strange. The server said they used to but stopped, whatever that means.

    Everything about our evening at Le Zoo was lovely. The hostess had read our notes and selected an appropriate table for our family; and was kind and warm. Our server was fantastic and paid much attention to our allergy situation and needs. And the food was delicious, especially the steak frite!

    Le Zoo is an excellent choice for dinner in the Bal Harbour area. Unfortunately, where we were seated at the back in the courtyard, it was very hot and the service was disappointing. Just getting water was difficult as the server was hard to find being in that location. I will return, but need to be at the front of the restaurant.

    Amazing experience! From setting our reservation, our arrival, service, delicious food to departure! An important family reunion celebration and I wanted everything to be perfect! Taking the Brightline from West Palm Beach to Miami and an Uber to Bal Harbour I called the host several times due on o train delays.. they were always gracious and very accommodating! A perfect inside table with a high chair for the baby. The atmosphere is a French cafe very trendy. Karma was our server and she was definitely 5 ⭐️ Star!! Professional, extremely attentive, friendly, welcoming service! The delicious warm bread and butter to start is a throwback to neighborhood bakeries. Two crisp Rieslings were ordered and a beer. The Papardele Bolo, the Tagliolini and the Grilled Salmon were exceptional! Cooked perfectly! A good portion for brunch and very affordable for Bal Harbour! We also had a cheeseburger with fries and chicken fingers and fries. Also delicious! The desserts are exceptional ! The crème brûlée is absolutely delicious! Creamy vanilla custard a rich but delicate dessert! The Profiteroles are enough to share.. ice cream, pastry stuffed with dark chocolate syrup poured Tableside. Sweet and delicate! Chocolate Pot de cream, a Chantilly- like a mouse … all delicious and easily shared! Two double espresso and one cappuccino! A perfect ending to a perfect day! The food was outstanding, the service exceptional and the experience fabulous! Thank you so much! I highly recommend!

    Sat inside and the AC vents were dripping onto the table, menu, my companion. Asked to move but no seating inside so moved outside where our table had a very broken chair. Waitress was initially attentive, but disappeared. Overall a poor experience.

    The food has gone downhill..MY fish was dry and tasteless. I left most of it over. The drinks are expensive and small for the price. I was a frequent diner at the restaurant, but I will be there a little less in the future. Sorry.
