“That's a French Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Very French especially for lunch. I have been there many times,always very very good.

I would recommend everything they make if they don't run out of it by the time you get there.

You will not be disappointed unless Friday's is gourmet food to you.

“Used to be great; now not so much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

I used to come here a lot a few years ago, but recently the quality has slipped. The food is still good, but not great. Many of the former servers have left and it seems that the management has changed. The last time I was there, there was no Tarte Tatin, which used to be one of their signature desserts. (It was a Friday at noon, well before the weekend picked up when you might expect a restaurant to run out of something.) I'll still eat there because it's close to where I work and a good neighborhood option, but unfortunately the place has changed.

“Local, just what Miami needs...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

We (Miami) have too few good neighborhood, once a week type paces. This is one, however. Everthing was good, corkage fee is welcome and reasonable. Thanks for that. Sat outside. Lovely.

“Seafood could make you sick”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011 via mobile

Closed on Sunday, no breakfast , a French cafe where you cannot order an expresso after 2:30: kitchen closzd wil answer the owner. Often stressed, he doesn't know anything about customer service after 2:30!
I have been sick twice after the mussels. The waiters are good. You can sit outside if ready to wait a while... Maybe friends and family may wait less. Food expensive and too ordinary when it doesn't make you sick, not a particular place to go.

“Great French food in austere bistro parking lot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Food is consistently excellent, retaining French classics, but in a lighter more modern style.
