I had dinner there with a group of friends, it was a very pleasant experience. Food is delicious (I had grilled octopus for appetizer and lamb chops for main), staff is very friendly and loved the relaxing and inviting ambient. They also have a great...selection of dessert you shouldn’t miss!More

Such an incredible meal, and it’s so nice to have authentic French cuisine in South Beach. And in a casual and relaxing (not stuffy) atmosphere. I visit Miami a few times a year and always look forward to dining at Otentic. Get the steak Maurice...if it is on special. It’s a huge portion of juicy steak smothered in mushroom gravy and melted Brie. Sooooo good. They’re also really accommodating with large groups which makes it great for a night out with family or a group of friends.More

I cannot stress how delicious and authentic-tasting the food and ambiance was at this restaurant. My friends and I were walking around south beach and we’re attracted to the quaint and charming appeal of the restaurant. The food was absolutely to-die-for! It’s not very often...you come across authentic French restaurants these days but I am so glad I had the privilege of stumbling across this gem! -Bill K., NYCMore

Otentic restaurant is located right next to the hotel we stayed out, we walked by one day and made a dinner reservation on the spot. We got lucky to get one of the few small tables outside, and enjoyed a really romantic dinner. It is...a quiet restaurant, small, maybe not the most popular, but the authentic French dishes were delicious, and we enjoyed our meal and evening. Look at my photo of the escargot we enjoyed.More

We scoured your site for a restaurant near our hotel. This was the one we chose. We walked by it on our way to the beach and confirmed our reservation, My wife and I shared the seared octopus for a starter and it was really...wonderful. The flavorful 'sauce' did not overpower the seafood, yet was distinct and delicious. The main course were two more shared appetizers, the Duo de Pate' and the Farmer's Platter which featured flavor and variety. With the recommended house Cabernet, it was an ideal evening meal before a cruise. Bravo.More

Yesterday, Sunday night, I return to the restaurant as usual and a waitress named Christina (served us very well and was very nice ) recommended we order the lamb chop and pasta with shrimps, in which both ended up being amazing and full of flavor...and displayed in a very nice, clean fashion. Thank you to the chef who prepared our plates as it was a big surprise having found food as good and maybe even a little better than what I have back home in France . 🇫🇷 🇫🇷 🇫🇷 🇫🇷More

This place is a little gem especially for vegetarians. I had rice pilaf, moussaka, green beans, and salad— the veg plate—it was fresh and delicious. My partner had pasta with lots of shrimp and asparagus and he loved it. Affordable and with excellent service, this...place is a winner. Delicious French desserts too. Decent wine by the glass. Will return again.More

good fresh and light french dishes - nice wine selection by the glass - highly recommended for a light dinner or lunch - unfortunately they no longer had the quiche, so instead I opted for the ”salade de chèvre chaud et lardons“ - very good

I was a bit surprised when I came here because the picture of the outside led me to believe the restaurant had more ambiance then it actually did. That was one of the disappointing parts of the dinner. The other was the foie gras appetizer....It had very little flavor and it always comes with toast. However, my waitress put down regular baguette slices. When I asked where the toast was she thought it was odd that I asked but she did bring out some. For a $22 appetizer price the foie gras should have been up to par. I then ordered the salmon and mahi-mahi entrée which was delicious and which I’d highly recommend. I would go back but it would be for a casual dinner and not one where I’d like some more atmosphere.More

Otentic is a little slice of Paris in South Beach. The name of the restaurant is apropos as it delivers an authentic Parisienne neighbored bistro experience - from the duo de pate to the approachable wine list to the steak frites and delectable desserts. It...was just what the whole family was looking for after several wonderful but similar dinners during our Christmas holiday in the tropics. Bon appetit indeed and merci beaucoup!More

This is always one of our must-eat places when we visit every year. The food and service are superb. I like to order the side of linguini along with the escargot dish. My husband likes to order their special.
