Palme d'Or Ratings and Reviews

This was about my fifth visit to La Palme D'Or. I had always had a positive experience there in the past. Arrived around 9:20 for a 9:30 reservation for 2. The Maitre D apologized stating that the people at our table had paid already but did not leave yet, and that it could be another 15 to 20 minutes. An hour later, after having 2 cocktails at the bar, we were seated. At that point, our waiter proceeded to try and delicately tell us that the kitchen was about to close, which in essence meant, hurry up and order. We ordered the 3 course Miami Spice menu, which was rapidly served, and we were done in about an hour or less- wine and all! Not quite the experience I was looking for, or was used to. In a restaurant of that caliber, with a pre-existing reservation, you don't tell, or imply to a customer to hurry up. The couple previously seated at our table was certainly not told to hurry up. At that point in the evening, another freed up table could have been used. And in a place such as the Biltmore, the kitchen can afford to stay open more than an extra 30 minutes to serve patrons who had reserved to dine at their establishment.
Please note, nobody was rude. Just very clumsy and super rushed service by all.

Fabulous dinner! Palme d'Or never disappoints. The Tarte Basquaise was amazing. The scallops and Alaskan black cod were both perfectly prepared and delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed both the puff pastry and chocolate desserts. Can't wait to return.

We went for Miami Spice and we were really happy with the overall experience. Service is excellent and the food is really good. The cheff is very creative and we liked the combination of flavors on every meal. The restaurant is on an old majestic hotel so the furniture and environment are from another era. We were happy to go during the special Miami Spice menu since it is expensive otherwise.

We went there and used the Miami Spice Menu. I expected to be a fantastic place after all the reviews I read. And also that I had to reserve a table for two about three weeks in advance. I had the duck and found it amazing ( I did know duck tasted that good ). My wife had the black cod and it just melted in your mouth. The service was 5 stars no questions about it. Our server Stefan was great, he was on point with everything . Great place, will definitely be back.

Delightful Miami Spice early dinner at Palm D'Or. The restaurant was quiet and elegant and the service was fabulous. All of the staff were well informed and attentive to me and my 90 year old mother. Stefan our waiter and the host/maitre d' that night were both wonderful, gave suggestions answered questions and were charming. The Miami spice menu was great - we had duck and scallops as entrees - and made this a great value as well. The place is true old, elegant coral gables and coming early made the noise level perfect for my mom. Just what we hoped it would be. Thank you!

The food was delicious. We enjoyed everything - appetizers: tuna tart, smoked salmon
- entrees: duck, cod (duck was particularly tasty)
- desserts: chocolate cake, grand marnier pastry
We were a group of 4 and really enjoyed ourselves.

Went with 2 other friends, party of 3. We asked the 11 courses menu ($155pp), with associate wine pairing ($100pp). I especifically requested no sweet wines, guess what? 2 syrupy wines were included. Besides, not each course was paired... Each dish was a bite or 2, can't say anything really impressed.... After 3 hours and 11 courses and a 4 digits bill, the waiters were less attentive and less helpful.

Fine french cuisine dining! Went to taste their Miami Spice menu and loved it. Palme d'Or is a must go - considered it the "Perfection on Plate"! We started with la tuna tarte basquaise and peas soup with Alaskan crab. Each delicious within their own styles, Main course for me was the roasted duck which was to die for - with special lavender sauce. My husband had Alaskan Black Cod - cooked just perfect. To top the final meal - puff pastry - (and not the typical one) - it had coffee chantilly with Baileys cream. Also the rasberry peach and almond creamiest ice cream ever. The ambience, the food and the service was top notch. Highly recommend - you cant' beat the Miami Spcie price all inclusive for this "exquisite experience" anywhere else.

45 minute wait for the appetizer to be served not acceptable , after that we were given a 2nd drink on the house. it was our 60th anniversary, nothing special was done To acknowledge. we went next night to cafe Abbrucci was delightful, great food , warm atmosphere, special dessert

Palm d'Or remains South Florida's finest dining room. Superb service, ambience, food. The Maitre-D'and Restaurant Manager, Gregory Zarzycki, greeted us warmly and helped us throughout the evening to make choices and enjoy our dining experience. Kudos to all at the Palm d'Or and the Biltmore Hotel.

Excellent dishes with great flavor! Dishes and portions are tiny though, even smaller than the norm "gourmet" small dish that I am accustomed to. However, was excellent food – duck was an excellent piece with just enough fat for flavor. Just keep in mind that on every dish you get about 4-5 bites including the entrees!

Pretentious, inaccurate (delivered only portions of our order twice), inattentive waitstaff who were a charicuture of french diffidence. Clearly annoyed with our ordering off Miami Spice menue, despite purchase of $250 dollars of wine. Decent wine, disappointing staff.

We went for Miami Spice. We try to go every year on every Saturday, then we very infrequently do high-end restaurants in Miami again until the next Miami Spice season. We rarely go back to the same restaurant because there are so many interesting ones to try. For 2015 Palme D'Or was ranked either 1 or 2 in our dining party of the 9 restaurants we visited, so we decided to go back in 2016 due to it's fantastic entry in 2015. The service staff was outstanding. I could not ask for a better experience from the front of the house. The appetizers did not disappoint: pea soup was creative, quality of the salmon plate fantastic, and foie gras well-prepared (upcharge). The entrees and desserts were not up to the same level. Two of us had the duck. The very small portion of duck that was served was tasty, but the sides would have been considered small for an amuse bouche. They might as well have been garnishes. My wife had the scallops (3) which were well prepared, but the sauce was salty even by palate fatigue standards. We had 2 desserts - berries which was overwhelmed by whip cream and chocolate torte which was not very flavorful. So at this point we have done 3 Miami Spice and Palme D'Or is not in the running for our choice of top two ranking based on our experience last Saturday night.

Service was impeccable and nonintrusive. However, for the first time ever, since the portions were extremely small on Miami Spice, all 4 of us were still hungry and we went elsewhere to satisfy our appetites. In other words, we had a small additional dinner 30 minutes later.

This restaurant is one of the premier restaurants in South Florida. Our Miami Spice experience was fine, but of special note, the portions are very small. However, this is to be expected from Palme d'Or since is a gourmet restaurant known for its tasting menus where portions are usually small.

Palme d'Or never disappoints. We have dined there dozens of times and are always happy to return and introduce it to friends. The staff is knowledgeable and very attentive. The Miami Spice menu is their best value and they put their best foot forward for it. Highly recommended!

What can I say, gastronomic perfection is the only phrase that comes to mind when I think about Palm d'Or. Not only is every single bite delicious but the service is superb and attentive without being intrusive. This is the first time I have gone during Miami Spice and it's an amazing deal. Don't miss out!

My husband and I were looking forward to dining at this highly rated establishment. What a disappointment. The service was fine. It is difficult to comment on the food because there wasn't enough served for a critique. The appetizers were ridiculously small. On to the main course. I would say that there may have been an ounce of fish and an additional ounce of something on my plate. The wine offered at $14 barely reached 1/4 of the way up the smallest white wine glass that I had ever seen used in a fine restaurant. My husband's dessert was laughable. A teaspoon of ice cream accompanied a sliver of cake. My cheese plate was fine. I paid extra for that.
Palme d'Or is cheating the public by participating in Miami Spice.

Excellent in every way. A tasting menu extraordinary. Complimented by elegant dining, magnificent presentation and incomparable service by professional staff, European in style. There is nothing like Pal D' Or in South Florida.
