“Who Comes Up With These Names?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

A pilot for Air France co-owns "Nothing but the Best" and, apart from the regrettable name, the food definitely warrants landing on its tarmac. Presented in true culinary school fashion on gleaming white plates with drizzles of this and that jetting across the landscape I wasn't sure what to make of "Nothing but the Best". Is it a loose translation of "Ne Plus Ultra"? Is it trying too hard? Is it stuck in some Frenchman's mind of what well-heeled Miamians might consider chic? Who knows? Watch an episode of Miami Vice to get you in the mood. The point is, once you start eating it is simply one wonderful taste sensation after another. I don't have high hopes for the success of this place. I sincerely hope I am wrong.

“The most beautiful spot near Coral Gables.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Fresh, delicious food in a gorgeous setting. Don't miss the fried croquettes and be sure to indulge in the house wine- excellent value.

“Nothing but the best indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This new kid on the block his truly a great founding! Chef Yann Rio is a young Chef with a great deal of experience. Owner of 3 restaurants in France, he will delight you with a true gastronomic experience.
Nothing but the best is simply what Miami was missing, an elegant décor, outrageous, delicious food and perfect fusion of flavors. As we walk in I felt a great sense of home feeling, Chef Yann has that Zen inviting feeling about him, the staff is attentive and discreet, décor is elegant and comfortable. As I discovered the numerous talented dishes, I was simply amazed by the way Chef Yann Rio was presenting and describing them to us, this experience is true must! Wishing the staff and Chef Rio a great success!
