“Expected more”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

My girlfriend and I previously had drinks at the bar and perused the menu. Having liked the offerings and seeing positive reviews on the internet, we decided it was time to give this place a try. We sat at the bar on a very uncrowded Saturday night. It's a pretty restaurant, a cool, upscale decor I would imagine one might find on South Beach. We had a flatbread appetizer which was delicious, a classic combination of smoked salmon, cream cheese, onions and capers. Service was attentive and friendly, though we waited long enough for our entrees that we were offered drinks on the house. My rack of lamb was tender, delicious and cooked perfectly med-rare as ordered, though I had just four ribs (about a half a rack?). Served with OK polenta and some spinach and a few asparagus spears. My girlfriend had the Chile seared shrimp and was immediately put off by the presentation of the head on shrimp skewered and served on the same polenta. She was also disappointed in the dish, the shrimp being over cooked, a bit dry, and again, had just four small shrimp on her plate. We had the brownie/vanilla ice cream thing for dessert, served in that trendy way with a small amount of ice cream served on the side. It which was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. Given the price of our meal, we expected more.

“Face was a Fantastic Surprise!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

A large group of us decided to walk up a block, away from the crowds near the bars on Hollywood Blvd. We had an AMAZING time! Superb food, excellent wine, attentive service, and a very upscale feel. They did not rush us out and actually, encouraged us to stay by offering us free liqueurs. A really excellent neighborhood gem!!

“Great Restaurant in Hollywood FL”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

My husband and I like to eat at new local restaurants, which explains why we decided to eat dinner at Face, that had recently opened. We had no idea what to expect and were absolutely thrilled with the food, ambiance and service. It is not a large restaurant and the owners (a French//Swiss husband and wife team) have created an intimate and cozy ambiance with very attentive service and delicious food. We were made to feel welcomed by Michel, one of the owners, who visited with us, explained the food and shared his passion for all things food and wine.

We had a wonderful experience and highly, highly recommend this restaurant. When you go make sure to ask for the Chef's special dessert and prepare to share.

“Great french feel, and great prices”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I tried this restaurant for dinner with some of my family. The restaurant is new and it shows. The service was extremely attentive and the owner even came by to talk to us. All of the plates were great, and the prices were right were they should be.
