Awesome food and service

You cannot do better than db Bistro, especially if you're staying at the Marriott, or across the street at the EPIC. Love that Branzino and the db Bistro's happy hour mini burgers!

Had a lovely experience here, beautiful location. Wine room to die for. The seafood tower appetizer was amazing. Service excellent. Loved the drinks. My salmon was cooked perfectly. Everything tasted great. We had a party of 5 and everyone enjoyed their meal. Bar has downtown upscale feel. Could have sat there all night. Very good food and atmosphere.

Friendly welcome, great service, and good food, all the employees are there to advice you about the best in the menu and wine list, were a party if two and both were very happy with all the choices. The Mezcal cocktail top!

I've dined at many places before, but db Bistro Moderne had it's own spark. Everything was up to Boulud standard, from the delicious escargots, to the heirloom tomato salad. The chickpea panisse was a great touch to the salad. I really enjoyed that. Dessert, of course, was incredible. Service was fast and attentive. I highly recommend this place to anyone... More

Great place for a fancyschmancy dinner - very attentive service (kept refilling our bread basket!), and really really good cocktails! We had the db burger (of course) and it blew my mind. Foie gras added the extra touch to it :) Desserts were pretty fancy too! Lovely experience! More details here: http://inagoodfoodmood.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/db-bistro-moderne-miami-fl/

There where a few dishes that Daniel's "moderne" twist made them brand new altogether, like the Escargot with cherry tomatoes and the Terrine de Foie Gras with caramelized peaches, a definite must-try. The ambience was great until a large group came by and made it very loud. Well chosen wine list for every budget and palate as well as great... More

The food was very good. The waiter acted put out that we brought our own wine but the website advertised no corkage fee on Monday. We brought a special bottle with us because of the advertisement. The very loud party in the next room put a damper on the dinner. I expected more because of all the great things I... More

Went on our first night so were a little jaded, however food and service was great. Only thing was some loud corporate types shouting (instead of talking) - but thats not the restaurants fault.
