Outstanding food in a very nice décor, but unfortunately this night the place was quite empty and atmosphere little bit sad. It's a pity because the quality of food deserve a much better attendance. Perhaps prices are part of the problem for some people.

I have been going there for 20 years and I have to say that I think I might not go back. Since the team of Philippe Ruiz in the kitchen and Sebastien Verrier as the maître D have left, it has been inconsistent. This time it was not very pleasant. First, the choice offered for ordering is bad. You cannot order a la carte, only with set menus so your are forced to eat items you would not order individually. My wife and I ordered the $90 set menu with 5 dishes. The food was good. The chef is well trained and deliver acceptable dishes. The only complaint I have about the food was our first dish which was supposed to be a Foie Gras terrine. It was the smallest amount I have ever been served. It was not, as indicated, a terrine but 2 slivers the size of a match of Foie Gras "au torchon"! The rest of the food was good except the desert which was very sweet and badly executed. Concerning the service, it was very poor, no more French waiters sadly. They have no formal training and it shows! One of my dishes was swapped with my wife! Overall very disappointing. The restaurant was more than 1/2 empty on a Friday night and I know why. The Biltmore hotel used to host the best restaurant in Miami, even though the competition is very low, they have lost that title in my opinion.

I tried to get a reservation for 7:30 PM but none available. I tried calling the restaurant directly, left a message but never received a return call. Consequently, made the reservation for 8PM and found the dining room was half empty. We asked for the table by the window but were told it was reserved - no one ever used the table the entire evening. Food and service was excellent.

Exceptional food and service. Restaurant Manager Gregory and his team exceeded expectations to make our wedding anniversary a truly memorable experience. A nice unexpected treat at the end of dinner served by Gregory himself capped a delightful evening. We are already planning our next visit.

Great experience. Had 6 course tasting menu, with wine pairings. This rivaled what we have had in Michelin 3 star restaurants in France. Don't be in a hurry, as took 2 1/2 to 3 hours, so would go there for that special occaision when you can savor the whole experience.

Matre D went out of his way to help me with my reservation because I was running late. Stephan did a marvelous job explaining and serving our 6 course mini plates. It was amazing how satisfied I was enjoying the small plates. I am a foody and enjoyed this type of dinning experience.

We tried one of the three Tasting Menus. Innovative cuisine with a French twist. Very attentive service. Unfortunately the noise level was quite high. A large, boisterous group next to our table combined with music from a venue next door made it difficult to have a dinner conversation.

The location itself is amazing, the setting is very elegant. The food was good but we had better in a restaurant of the same standing. We were expecting a more refined cuisine.
OUR ADVICE: DO NOT give your car to the valet, they are not trustworthy, they stole all the change from the car as well as my husband's designer sunglasses from the glove compartment.... We did call the next day to file a complaint but were not able to speak to the supervisor, and even though we left our number we were never called back...

Had eaten there before and the tasting menu was good. This time around everything from start to finish was unremarkable. The decor is looking very dated. Dining chairs are uncomfortable. Service is good though. Would not return. Do not recommend.

Went for Miami Spice, which is an incredible deal given tasting menus usually start at $90. Service was almost so fancy that they were a little slow to take orders and weren't going to bring out bread until the appetizer course, but other than that, everything was delicious! Entrees were actually more impressive than appetizers, which is rare. Must do the international cheese cart!

I come during the Miami Spice season because it is a very expensive restaurant. I love the elegance of the restaurant, the exquisite setting and the superb service. I feel like royalty when I come here. The tuna tart was delicious as well as the black cod. The chocolate dessert was heaven for chocolate lovers. I wish the portions were not that small but the taste and service compensate this detail.

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.
