They have a really nice terrace just aside from the busy Washington ave, but you can still see the street. The food is announced as being French and it is: the gratin is really ok. The fried chicken was also ok. A very nice surprise was the free mini glass of sparkling white wine, to start. The crème Brule was... More

We stumbled upon this amazing little french bistro in South Beach on our vacation last week. It was a charming little place with food that packs a serious punch. We did a bit of grazing and had Escargot that was the best we have ever had. The pate duo was sensational as was the salads and the tuna tartare. We... More

The food was great and the service was even better. Such an amazingly nice and genuine young lady we had serve us, next time in South Beach we will definitely have a couple of meals there. Not drive by cooking in any sense, you could tell and taste that this is an establishment on their game.

I chose this place based on its TripAdvisor rating and it was as good as everyone says. The Steak Maurice was large and incredibly good, with a great mushroom sauce, at a fair price. The next night I went again and had escargots for an appetizer, which were fantastic, and they served a dozen for $13, which is a bargain... More

Really enjoyed my visit to Otentic for dinner - tried some lovely glasses of bubbles and had some spectacular starters - Fois Gras and Smoked salmon and prawn in avocado which were amazing and to be fair I could have eaten twice over - unfortunately I made a bad pick for main as my duck was overcooked and the fat...

My wife found this online from it's ratings, and it lived up to 5 stars. These are not cheap eats, but the ingredients and preparation will likely provide one of your best meals in South Beach. I'd guess just about anything on the menu will be great (and the two of us sampled a lot!). It's expensive, but worth a... More

The food was very good. We had the lunch special which was a great value. It included a soup, an entre and vegetable, and desert. The also gave a complementary wine. The service was fast and friendly. Very good restaurant.

A small boutique French restaurant away from the bustle of Collins in South Beach. We had brunch there. The restaurant was empty and we had eggs benedict over a crab cake with a lobster bisque - simply delicious. My wife liked hard eggs and even though we had asked for them to be hard they turned up soft. They got... More

I live in South Beach for part of the year (Manhattan for the remainder) and I find this little bistro to be one of the best secrets in South Beach. The food is always exceptional, and the prices (for South Beach) a remarkable value. They've always believed in offering good wines, at a reasonable price too, so you can have... More

If you want a loud, over-priced, pretentious restaurant in South Beach then keep looking because you won't find it here. Otentic is a small, chic, French bistro just 5 minutes' walk from the frantic bustle of Ocean Drive and we were SO pleased we followed the other reviews and gave it a try. It has a small, intimate feel with... More
