The steak maurice was so generous in portion but I finished the whole thing by my self. So yummi with the melted brie and everything. Boyfriend and I had the same meal and there was a small difference in the portions. He got fewer asparagus then me and so on. Details matters, but still very good.

My son and husband both absolutely adored this place. I mean beyond the beyond. But sadly, my steak was overcooked (like by a lot) so my reaction was not so good. They offered to cook me another, but who wants to eat after everyone else? They did give us a free dessert which is nice. And the appetizer which was... More

We had dinner here while on a recent vacation in South Beach. My son and I loved it, but my wife, not so much. The place is a causal bistro on the southern end of Washington Ave. that serves steaks, pasta, and salad. Prices are a bit high, but quality is excellent. My son and I had the signature "Steak...

Otentic is a humble little French bistro a few blocks back from the hustle and bustle of Miami Beach and Ocean Drive. It’s an unassuming restaurant, but don’t let that fool you. This place has phenomenal food at reasonable prices and a homey ambiance that makes you want to linger all afternoon. My husband and I had planned to eat... More

We found this restaurant using Trip Advisor. We wanted somewhere central to South Beach, but off the main Ocean Drive stretch. First impressions were good, really friendly waiter / maitre d who served us iced water and French toast with a dip before we even ordered. The inside was nice, tastefully done and felt very French. I agree with a... More

Great service, Excellent French food. Paté duo highly recommended, also lamb chops and potatoes dauphinois. Skip the bolognese pasta. go to Italy for that. dessert and espresso are a must. Atmosphere, not a great as it could be...cozy, but not charming. Nice small for drinks and/or dinner. We will definitely return.

This place is really amazing. The food is french but not overpriced, and portions are aplenty. ... I had the pleasure of enjoying an amazing farmer steak as they call it (steak frites) the garlic butter on the steak was out of this world, and the French fries were Belgian styles, so delicious. For desserts I had there tarte tatin.... More

Had to go back to Southbeach, Miami for business. So, I thought I would go back to a restaurant I previously reviewed. Went there for brunch and thought it was absolutely amazing. I look forward to returning there the next time I come into town.

We've been at Otentic three times. Each one was very impressive: - very good and kind waiters; - nice food: we tried tuna, sandwiches, chicken, onion soup, desserts. All was just perfect! - the atmosphere of Paris downtown: music, wallpapers, ceiling, wine corks, all decorations work in right way! We will definitely return and my advise is to visit this... More
