Palme d'Or Ratings and Reviews

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.

This was our 5th or 6th time at Palme d'Or. Ordered off their 3-course Miami Spice Menu and everyone was happy with their dishes, except for one major misstep: fishbones! All who ordered the black cod found an insane amount of fishbones, which is unacceptable in fine dining. Less important but also noteworthy is the fact that one of the fish fillets was noticeably smaller than the rest. Despite those issues, the meal was good from start to finish. Their desserts tend to be just okay, but the opera cake with chocolate and passion fruit was outstanding. However, the chocolate ice cream that went with the opera cake was already melted when it got to the table. For one who is critical and pays attention to details, there are several issues to be fixed. But all in all, Palme d'Or could be considered the most superior restaurant in Miami. And at $39/per person (plus gratuity and tax), it is a steal. Well worth it.

Everything about our evening was excellent. We went for Miami Spice and were rewarded with interesting menu choices, delicous food served with great care in a beautiful setting. Although the restaurant was filled with diners, we could hear each other clearly and enjoy conversation over dinner.

Great service. Food was hit or miss. If it wasn't for all the bread, would have left still hungry. Duck was highlight of our meal. Not sure if I'll be returning though. Too pricey.
Absolutely the best restaurant in Miami ...
Absolutely the best restaurant in Miami in all manner of food taste, presentation and dining service etiquette. All the wait staff, including the manager/maitre d were gracious, professional, and friendly. We visit every once in a while and have always had an exceptional dining experience at the Palm d'Or.
One of the finest restaurant in Miami.
This is probably the best restaurant in Miami. Food is absolutely delicious! Ambience is great - a nice quiet place for a date or special occasion. Even though the food quantity are very small, halfway through the course, I was already feeling full.
Fine Luxury Dining on another level!!!
We went to Palme d'Or for a date night and to celebrate my wife's birthday. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant we received excellent and personal customer service. You were made to feel as you were the only couple dining there. The staff stops at nothing to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. This takes fine dining to a an entirely different level. The food is edible art. The combination of flavors and textures is unsurpassed. The Chef has done an amazing job at creating this menu. Thank you to Gregory, Valeria , and Davio for making this an unforgettable evening for us...
Beautiful ambiance, good food but ....
The restaurant in the lower level of the Biltmore Hotel was not busy on a Tuesday evening. We decided to try this restaurant based on others' raved review. We are super foodies and enjoy trying out different eateries whenever we are visiting a new place. We chose the six course tasting menu at $115 per person as well as the $95 per person wine pairing selection. Since this is a tasting menu, the portions are small. For those of you who are big eaters, you may want to choose the 8 courses instead. We were definitely full after the six courses. The food and presentations were very good but lacked what we called a "wow" factor. The 4th course where we selected the seared foie gras, we felt the chef shouldn't have used the elderberry emulsion foam on top of the foie gras which really ruined the taste of the beautiful foie gras. The frog legs tempura in the 3rd course were excellent as well as the lamb in the 5th course.
Since we are used to dining in 5-star restaurants, we have come to expect certain expectations in this type of fine setting. What we find lacking in this restaurant is sommelier's explanation to us why certain wines are chosen with the food we are having as well as waiter's brief explanation of the type of dish we are getting and how it's generally prepared. The dishes were dropped off and wine poured without a single word of explanation. We were stunned. Because of this and the lack of "wow" factor, we gave it a 3-star for Food, Service and Overall since restaurant of this caliber should know better.

It is a restaurant based entirely on set numbers of courses with no Al La Carte option
The 4 course menu was very small portions and did not represent value for the cost.
The alternative Restaurant Fontana was much,much better--both on food and cost
Palm D'OR is an excellent restaurant, the service, food, ambiance, attention to detail, is just wonderful! The Chef came to our table as we had told our waitress how wonderful everything was, he was very nice, does art with his plates - each dish is beautifully decorated and the taste of exquisite! Loved the restaurant and will definitely go back!
Took a Risk
While on vacation we decided to go out to a fancy dinner. I googled top French restaurants in Miami and Palme d'Or kept coming up so we decided to give it a try. This restaurant is located in the beautiful Biltmore hotel. From the time we pulled up we were expecting the best and they did not disappoint. We had the 6 course tasting menu and everything was good. The chef sent out extra courses. Although the portions are really small, we were full by the 4th course. The food is rich, and flavorful. Drinks were so so. Overall, we had a great time with very attentive staff and would dine here again. Thank you Davio, you made our first trip to Palme memorable.
High expectations were exceeded! The six course menu was fabulous in all respects. Standouts were the polenta with sea urchin, the quail with pumpkin gnocchi, the foie gras, and the cheese tray (the best outside of France in my experience). Service was flawless and congenial. Hats off to Greg for running a finely tuned system.
The Palme d'Or was a pleasure for my wife and I on a recent trip to Miami. The ambiance, the service and above all the food were in keeping with what you would expect from a top class French styled restaurant.
The location of the restaurant by the magnificent pool is also spectacular.
Best restaurant experience ever.
From start to finish, this was the most outstanding experience, even though we dined using a coupon...Incredible service, amazing food, and lots of extras included. Worth the drive from Broward, I loved everything about Palme d'Or
