“Nice place for lunch - very international atmosphere, which is cool.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

La Riviera restaurant at the Sofitel in Miami is a neat place...eating lunch here definitely felt like being abroad, somewhere. In Miami, where Spanish is the lingua franca, it's bemusing but cool to see the signs in the Sofitel in French (because the Sofitel chain is French, after all).

The meals were a bit on the expensive size, and portions a bit small, but the presentation of the food is spot-on, and everything tasted delicious. I was pleased to see several healthy options on the menu. I ended up getting the steak salad with mango dressing, which was very very good.

“Great food+ excellent service+ lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I had the pleasure of visiting this hidden place in Miami, and got a great surprise! The place is just so beautiful, you are warmly welcomed and the food is delicious. My recommendation is to try the Foie Gras and the duck. Your waiter will be the best adviser to accompany your dishes with the best wine. They have an extensive wine list where you can find something to your taste and to the size of your wallet.

“Could have done much better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

A couple of the dishes that were ordered were decent, but the corn and crab soup was both cold and subpar. It appeared to have been a can of cream corn with some miniscule pieces of canned crab meat. Too bad - they have done much better in the past.

“Meals are good but expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We ate three meals here on a recent trip going overseas. Menu is extensive and the room plus outdoor seating option is very nice. The wine list is good but way overpriced for the type of wines offered and likewise for meals.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We ate in the bar...Service was terrible... slow unapologetic and lazy. Were charged 100bucks for a couple of beers some minor snacks and a glass of wine.
