Palme d'Or Ratings and Reviews
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 ...
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
Great Food, little bit pricey
Was not expecting only a 4, 6, 8 course menu.., have to say the service was very impressive , when I arrive to the restaurant me they greet by my last name, great service, but for almost 500$ I would have like to have a standard menu..
We came here for a birthday celebration. The experience was outstanding and I would highly recommend the restaurant for any special occasion. Although relatively expensive, you really get a lot. The presentation was excellent as was the service. I would rate this the best restaurant that I have been to in the area and we will definitely be back.
This was our second New Year's Eve meal at Palme d'Or and I didn't think they could top the previous experience but they did. It started with the service from the very greeting, through every course and ended with the well wishes for a new year and treats to take home. We had the wine pairing with our meal. The team that put the meal together has such talent, how the wine, each course and even the bread were made for each other. Delicious doesn't begin to describe it. Thank you! A great end to the year.
Tasting menu ++
We chose Palme D Or for our Holiday party this year. Aside from the wonderful tasting menu they provided the Sommelier Jose Garcia was an added value to the evening suggesting wines which paired beautifully with our courses.
We highly recommend Palme D Or for your holiday gathering!
Great French experience in Miami
Great ambience, spectacular Food very creative and delicious.
I had a 7 courses menu all very well balanced with Chablis and Burgundy wine.
Special note for the duck and oursin that were outstanding.
The service were incredible and the maître very welcoming.
A night to remember
This restaurant oozes elegance and charm . From the moment you walk in you feel special. What an elegant room with a gorgeous view of the pool. We were celebrating our 35 th Anniversary , everyone congratulated us from the time we got there until we left . We had a 4 course prefixed dinner , a GREAT bottle of wine , and champagne, appterifs compliments of the Chef. AND the"" WAIT STAFF " , you cannot beat . Promt , polite and true professionals . We live in The Gables and absolutely LOVE this restaurant !!
A Grand Old Standard
It was my first visit in years and we were not disappointed. The food is excellent, though none of my guests was wild about the suckling pig which I didn't have. The brioche bead was as good a bread as any of us had ever eater anywhere in the world.
On the negative side, the delays between courses was a bit long.
Elegant dining and romantic
The ambiance is wonderful here. The food is via multiple courses with tastings. Least expensive was $95 pp. The courses were beautifully presented. The choices could have been better and the taste less nuanced for our liking. This is a pretty place for a romantic dinner. The staff were very nice but some not so experienced (wine presentation and serving needs to be practiced). Multiple staff coming to table but not just one making experience more personal.
The best retaurant in Miami
Definitively the best food in town. Creativity, quality, presentation, taste, everything is perfect from the Chef. This is perhaps not suitable for every "palais" because it is typically a new French cuisine which can not be compared to American cuisine. Great great cuisine anyway. A small critic... the lightening of the room should be changed as it give a sad note to a superb decoration.
