One of the Best Restaurants in Downtown Miami!

Finally, authentic French cuisine in an area of downtown that is sorely lacking in good food. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the service is always good.

We were looking for an after-dinner dessert and happened upon this restaurant. We were treated well, had a lovely creme brulee and shared a decadent dessert of battered cookies with a lovely vanilla ice cream. Our service was friendly and warm - nice spot.

While I was looking for a sushi place and not happy with the choice downtown, I ran into this French Bistro. What a nice surprise! Food was excellent, the staff was very friendly and they spoke some French to you to make you feel the ambiance. Bread and butter was good to begin with; then a fried goat cheese with... More

In Miami food is not great, we all know that. BUT this place has opened to change our mind about that! It's amazing. For brunch: fresh orange juice, French toast, tuna, mussels... Endless feast. Try it!!

Needless to say, some of the restaurants were closed/ out of business and we stumbled upon this wonderful establishment. It was simple yet elegantly decorated. The menu... More

After waking up late and needing to head down south to run some earns we decided to check out brunch at Downtown Bistro the week before "ULTRA Music Feat" took over downtown. We arrived near 1pm at what was an industrial-chic-urban-French-oasis, and decided to sit at the bar to see what libations Jose had behind the bar for us to... More
