Pilar Local Restaurant & Bar
Named after Earnest Hemingway’s famed fishing boat, Pilar Local Restaurant & Bar is looking to shake things up in South Florida’s dining and nightlife society. The revamped modern American restaurant offers an epicurean experience with a combination of culinary classics and a warm and gracious staff, making the tucked away hideaway the perfect destination for delectable yet casual decadence.
Offering Lunch and Dinner, executive Chef Erica Nicholl has created each menu featuring brasserie comfort food with nightly dinner offerings with choice of family style sides, emphasizing on the restaurant’s fresh seafood selection and the finest local and imported ingredients.
"This was our first visit to an old favorite restaurant now under new ownership/management and we were very disappointed, The menu was more limited, several of our requests were ignored once the food was delivered - dressing not on the side, cheddar cheese left off the burger. Bread was brought with a soft butter/oil spread which waiter kept insisting was real butter, but finally brought real butter from the kitchen, not graciously. What used to be a regular neighborhood go-to for us is now a neighborhood stay-away-from."
"With all of the hustle and bustle of Aventura mall to the south and Gulfstream to the north, it can be easy to overlook this treasure - but don't! The staff is friendly and endearing. The ambiance is vibrant, but mild enough to hold a real conversation. And the food... exquisite. The chef's talent is on par with the more renowned chefs in the area. Take advantage the accessibility of this great find a while you are able and you won't be disappointed."

"The food was awful and three out of five in our party had to send their food back. The manager on duty was terrible and was not at all helpful. Save your money- dine some place else. Any fast food place would be much better!"
