“Best French food in the Miami area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

After returning from a trip to Paris, with 9 great meals and one bad one, we were longing for some more really good French food, and my wife and I chose Pascal’s for dinner, as our 40 plus years of dining in the Miami area taught us it is now the best choice in the area. Our dinner that night was very good and I mentioned to the head waiter that my favorite meal in Paris was duck confit (an ancient recipe from Gascony, cooking the duck slowly for up to 10 hours in a reduction of its own fat) and that it was the best duck I had ever eaten. A few weeks later I received an email that a special weeknight dinner menu would be available featuring duck confit (I don’t know if it was a coincidence) and we returned to try it. The meal and the value was incredible, as the $39 special menu featured an appetizer, the main course, a dessert, and a glass of Cotes du Rhone wine. For appetizers, we had lobster bisque which was amazingly good and cheese soufflé which was incredible. The main course was duck confit and potatoes (Pomme de Terre Sarladaise), by tradition also cooked in duck fat, and it was outstanding. The included dessert was a 3 color chocolate mousse, which I do not usually order, (I always have ordered soufflé’s there as they are great) but the mousse was extremely good. My son and I had the duck special, but my wife never eats duck and is always dieting, so she just ordered a filet mignon, which she said was also great. Pascal’s main faults are higher prices and that it gets noisy when crowded, but this week night it was less crowded and serene and the price for 3 dinners including 3 cappuccinos and 2 bottles of water, was $164 before tip – very reasonable for an amazing meal.

“Great Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

For me, it reminds me of the 70's and 80's in "The Gables" when there were fine dining restaurants at every corner. Vinton's, Charades, LeFestival, Chez Vendome, many more - Here the atmosphere is cool and the food and service are amazing. Lots of Servers so the attention is very good, very good wine list and Pascal's food is super good. Try it!

Celebrated our Anniversary. Even it's on a pricey side, the service was excellent, great ambiance, the server was helpful and knowledgable, the recommendations and suggestions were very good. The food was very tasty, the portions were just the right size, great presentation. Specials of the day were excellent. Would definitely visit again. Highly recommend.

“The best place to eat in coral gables!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Its a small restaurant, you need reservations in the evening.the food is consistently good,the upside down cheese souffle is to die for,as is their souffle au grand marnier! The service is good. It lacks a bit in atmosphere. Try it you wont regret it.

“Highly recommendable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The restaurant is small and tables are very close to each other but we were lucky to sit next the wall. The outside tables are on the busy street and not so atractive because of the traffic. The food is excellent although the fish was not the freshest and was served with a red wine reduction, but my meat choice was much better.Good wines by the glass. The bill was quite high though.
