I had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant, and both were superb. A French flair but definitely with a Miami flavor, the dinner menu and quality of meal were excellent. I would definitely dine here again! I was in a large group and everyone tried different menu items and no one was disappointed in the least, including dessert.

We used the travelzoo coupon for dinner and still managed to spend $85 on top of the $103 coupon value including tip. We also had breakfast from the menu the following morning,a buffet was available but more food than necessary. Breakfast for 2 was around $30-35 tip incl. Food and service excellant. Forgot how much I missed having French wines!!!!

Food's expensive, wine's trite, restaurant is over-lit (wondering why the bar can feature candles on the tables but the restaurant doesn't), service is just stupid. Lax and careless. Food's mediocre. Mind you, if you're staying here and don't have a car you don't have many options; perhaps that's what the Sofitel is counting on?

The service and food were outstanding. The foie gras with the brioche are one of the best I've ever tried. For sure i'll come back next time I'm in Miami.

We booked to stay here at the Sofitel as we were due to fly from the airport the next day. After a longish drive from Orlando we decided to eat at La Riviera, the in-house restaurant. It claims to produce typical French cuisine..I wonder how many reviewers who agreed with this assessment have actually had French cooking? The chowder was... More

Superior French food, top of the line service, great menu. For elegant dining and an enjoyable evening La Riveria is worth a stop. The menu is classic French, I highly recommend the "La Degustation". Service was top shelf and friendly. Desserts excellent and a very nice selection of French and American wines.

We had two meals here - and both were very good. A bit expensive; and the service at breakfast was not prompt (too many customers/too few waiters)

Very convenient not to have to leave the hotel to get a great meal. They have very good desserts. They have a good discovery menu.
