Love this French restaurant! Such a neighborhood gem. Lots of delicious starters like escargot in bone marrow and crunchy goat cheese salad! The Duck Confit and Veal Milanese were also excellent!

Thanks to Fred and Leticia, the three of us enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner together at home. A full family celebration meal that fitted both our French and American taste buds, traditional yet with a well appreciated gourmet twist. Star ⭐ dishes on our table, quite...a few, starting with Brie en croute, salad and soup, followed by turkey rolls, creamy corn and sweet potatoes pecan and two other side dishes, green beans and mash potatoes. And of course that delicious chocolate fondant pie for dessert! Well done! We will definitely order out or dine at Semilla again. Everything was nicely packaged separately, we only had to warm up dishes 15 minutes in the owen... Easy! And delicious 😋More

We’ve been to Semilla twice recently: once on our own, and on the basis of that we took 2 friends. We recently moved nearby and were looking for a place to enjoy great food in a charming, but relaxed, setting. A place you could run...to on Tuesday night when you’re too tired to cook. Think we found it! The level of attention and service from the husband/wife team that own it is unlike almost any other place here at the beach. You feel like you stepped into a family-run restaurant in France; and ironically the wife, Letecia’s family owns a restaurant in Paris. No wonder they understand how to make guests feel at home. We enjoyed a variety of dishes a few of the happy hour specials. Like outstanding blue point oysters. We also enjoyed a fish special one night and the risotto on both nights. We even had creatively served martinis tableside by the chef himself. See what I mean about attention and family warmth? We are looking forward to many return visits during our snowbird winter in Miami Beach.More
