Palme d'Or Ratings and Reviews
We have been here in different occasions. As always, Palme D'Or never disappoints! They had the special menu for Miami Spice so we took advantage of that. However, a meal at this restaurant is like an adventure... everything from service, attention, detail and wine was superb! They even gave us a gift to take care. Special thanks to Christian for his recommendations. Looking forward to our next visit.
Best French Cuisine in Miami/Coral Gables. I have been dining here on special occasions for many years and I have never been disappointed. The Biltmore Hotel is a wonderful and beautiful hotel with elegance and history. The Palm d'Or is a delightful restaurant with a great location for the chef and staff to serve his creative French menu.
We had a wonderful Miami Spice dinner. Ordered supplements of foil gras appetizer and cheese platter, but it was still a great deal Everything was delicious and beautifully presented, but the dessert, Foret de Noir, was a true work of art! Will return for the regular tasting menu!
We choose the 6 course menu @ $115 each. Each menu item was good, but very small. (It's a good job they give a little bread with each dish, else we might of left still hungry :)
I was disappointed in the fact that they knew I was my wife's birthday dinner, and thought that they would at least put a candle on her desert at the end of the night. (like they did last year.) but this time they just gave her a card signed by the chef at the same time they gave me the check, and said this is for your birthday.
We'll find another restaurant to celebrate next year.
My wife and I went to celebrate my birthday.
We decided to have the Miami Spice menu. After living in Florida for over 12 years, I can affirm this restaurant has the best trained service staff. They paid attention to the details that other restaurants with similar price do not care about. Personally I was surprised they placed the correct silverware for fish, which is something I had not seen here in Florida. The presentation and quality of the food was great. I received a birthday card which was greatly appreciated.
Thanks to all the staff members for providing outstanding service. We will be back.
I love the Biltmore and the service is excellent. My spouse ordered the fish from the Miami Spice menu . It was not what we expected the dish was cold when it arrived at the table . We mentioned it to the server she was very receptive and accommodating . Overall as always the experience was very gratifying .
It was the annual opportunity from Miami Spice that drew us in again. The food was creative, tasty and included many interesting elements new to me. That makes it fun!
The wait staff are welcoming and attentive.
If you are a Miami Spice adventurer and expecting to pay just the prix fixeé watch out for the fine print on a couple of the offerings. We missed it and were surprised when the bill came. There was an additional $15 charge for the beef on this MS menu.
The maitre de was kind enough to remove a coffee charge and we appreciate that gesture.
To savor the food and ambiance at the $39 price is a real treat at this elegant and upscale
Thank you Biltmore!
Very disappointed. The shrimp were dry without much flavor; the succotash overwhelmed the dish. We went long periods without seeing our water and had nothing to drink. Not anything like prior meals there and wonder whether it is because we had the Miami Spice menu.
I was looking forward to a wonderful elegant meal for our special occasion. I was very disappointed. We went for the Miami spice menu which was woefully poorly chosen. There were no vegetarian options and 2 out of 3 things had pork or seafood which many people prefer not to eat. There was nothing local, nothing fresh, everything was "fancy" but totally tasteless. The service was falling over itself with the lifting of silver tops at the same time. They should have spent a lot more time thinking about and preparing the food than trying to outdo themselves in terms of being elegant. We left hungry and disappointed. The deserts were fabulous. People should be aware there is no a la carte choices you either do the very expensive tasting or the outrageously expensive tasting. I definitely do not recommend.
The food overall is good. I like the goose liver a lot. The hamachi is also good. A5 beef is really tender inside, while the outside is a little bit over cooked. Black cod is not that good. I don't recommend that one. The bread at the beginning is cute, a flower shape. However, that is just too much bread during the whole meal. I want to enjoy the food rather than get filled with bread. The chocolate dessert is cute, a pinky tree shape. The restaurant is in a hotel. Overall the atmosphere is quiet and delicate. The sever is quite solicitous. She come and ask several times and explained to me what the meal is made of. I like the explanation a lot. Overall is a really wonderful experience.
My 3 friends and I went for dinner . We all ordered from the Miami Spice menu. From start to finish the service and food were excellent. Entrees, appetizers, and desserts all looked like works of Art. Brief descriptions: of our food. Appetizers: hamachi carpaccio and endive salad. Entrees: Quail ( juicy and seasoned well) Tiger shrimp wrapped in bacon( Delicious) and Alaskan Black Cod ( Fish perfectly cooked). Desserts : I do not have the words to describe the beautiful sponge cake. WOW. You didn't want to eat it just look at it. I had the International cheese platter. What a great opportunity to taste rare cheeses. Staff was well informed. Perfect evening. I plan on going back for the tasting menu.
Miami spice can be hit or miss when it comes to upscale restaurants, but we were treated to a wonderful meal and excellent service at the Palme d'or. We went on a Friday and gave ourselves enough time to stroll the beautiful hotel grounds and enjoy cocktails and live jazz at the bar. For the first course, octopus dish and the hamachi dish; the second, cod and quail; the third, the pavlova and the cheese dish. The dishes incorporated seasonal fruits and veggies, were balanced, inventive, and yummy. This place also oozes character with the beautiful interior design and professional hotel staff. We didn't feel rushed or treated like 'inferior bargain diners' so I definitely recommend for the upcoming promotional months. We are also more likely to come back and try the afternoon tea and other restaurant for a special occasion.
I was sorely disappointed in my most recent experience dining at the Palm d'Or. For many years, I have enjoyed the impeccable service and the elegant ambiance of this venue not to mention the exceptional cuisine. On this occasion, the bread service had been reduced to an overly crusty baguette that was impossible to cut, there was no amuse bouche, the service was not on a par with the ambiance and price point, and the finishing touches such as the petit fours were gone! As for the cuisine, my appetizer was barely visible on the plate, and the presentation was not at all a desirable one nor was the taste. I doubt that I will return to what was once my absolute favorite restaurant comparable to the Michelin starred restaurants in France. What a shame!
Terrible service. We had a reservation and they still made us wait for 30 minutes, we had to wait over an hour for our food and the staff didn't offer anything for the wait. We waited for 15 minutes for dessert and finally decided to leave without it. Food was ok but service was terrible.
Miami Spice dinner menu was outstanding, in particular the black cod. Good variety of choices, perfect portions, loved the sommelier's recommended Sancerre wine. Service was top-notch as well. We even received a happy anniversary card which was very thoughtful.
