Nice place, staff is very friendly. They have a good selection of wine. We had the Pinot Noir from Burgundy which was very good, could be a little cold (wines were storage at room temperature).

As a native French it was refreshing to try this cosy restaurant where as in France a little welcome glass of wine is served as you arrived. We shared the Crazy Platter (foie gras, brushetta Serrano, merguez & squash skewer, machego, tuna tartar, charlotte d'avocado), as an appetizer, with a glass of nice house Chardonay. Then we both had the... More

You wouldn't necessarily think that this small, nondescript restaurant produces some of the best food on Washington. The location isn't fancy, but the simplicity is matched by the food (simple, clean, we'll prepared) and the price (relatively inexpensive for the area). Having breakfast here, the eggs were fresh, as were the vegetables. And the croissants, pastries and breads were light... More

We came to Otentic as a decent sized group. We were looking for a nice spot to celebrate a birthday and couldn't have picked a better spot. At the outset, the staff was helpful and accommodating in getting us a reservation for our group and getting us a spot in the outdoor patio seating. Our waiter was extremely friendly and... More

Came here with a group of friends while down in Miami for the weekend and we were so glad we did! For appetizers we ordered the cheese platter, octopus special and mussels. Everything was delicious and flavorful. I recommend asking for extra bread baskets to dip in the octopus and mussel sauce because yes it was that good!! I ordered... More

Delicious food, excellent service. Would definitely come back here for a meal when I'm in town. Highly recommend the mussels (with lots of delicious fresh bread).

food was good. and it was right outside of Fashionhaus hotel. We had breakfast here and it was quite good. The deserts looked good but did not get a chance to try it.
