“Thanksgiving lunch”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is worth every penny. Our party of 5 enjoyed Thanksgiving lunch 3 course meal which was priced at $60 excluding tax. At first the family thought it was highly overpriced however when we received the food it was beyond excellent. Service was great and we even got complimentary sandwiches to go.

If I am ever in this area again I will definitely return. Great food, great service, tranquil atmosphere. Just love it.

the bistro look chic and the service is quitte posh, but i go to a restaurant to eat.
the foie gras tasted like a low quality can, i am french and know good foie gras.this taste like a liver pate.and the size was xxxxsmall.
the ravioli with lobster where nice, but the size again, man i need more food then that.i am a women with a normal appetit and usually leave food on my plate.
the plateau de fromage was good, a lot of choice.
and a excellent glas of wine, at a cost ,18 dollar.
a diner for one with 3 course was 135 dollars without tip.

“Horrible service and food”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

The experience I had in this restaurant was so terrible that I would never recommend it to anybody. The service was really bad I looked around and there were many tables the same way trying to flag down the waiters. Also some of the dishes were mistaken and not prepared correctly . For a fine dining restaurant this is unacceptable.

“Good Experience”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

A sleek and stylish bistro located in the JW Marriott. Here I was able to get my Peruvian Ceviche fix and it didn´t disappoint. Also on the menú are plenty of seafood, pastas, and French classics. Elegant surrounds, good service from the waitstaff.

“Great surprise inside a hotel - Fine Restaurant”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Chose this restaurant to celebrate Veteran's Day with my father, his wife and my husband. How do you celebrate with a WWII and Korean vet? Share a dinner at an excellent restaurant! Driving up to a hotel entrance is a bit unusual for a fine restaurant but the lobby of the Marriott Marquis is modern and elegant. The restaurant is located one the first floor, so entry was convenient and upon entering you forget you are in a hotel. There is a ultra modern chic lounge to the right. It was filled with well dressed professionals relaxing and enjoying some libations after a work day in downtown Miami's business district. The dining room we were seated in was tastefully decorated, fresh and modern. Now let's talk about the important restaurant features, the food and service. Our waiter was well versed on the daily specials and made each one sound better than the previous. We started the evening with a tuna tartare prepared table side. The Indian spices added the perfect flavor splash to the tuna (not to mention the quail egg that topped the dish). The Escargots Persillade (wild Burgandy snails) were also a hit. Several of us had the maple glazed duck. Perfectly cooked moist and not overly sweet. Presentation was beautiful. My husband enjoyed the tasting of suckling pig that took him back to memories of Segovia. The pork dish had sucking pig cooked various ways and each was unique and tasty. My father's wife chose stone crabs (unusual selection in a French restaurant - but when in Miami and in the beginning of the stone crab season - who can blame her for the urge) they were amazingly fresh and flavorful, served with two lovely sauces. You guessed it, I tried some of them. The dinner ended with a lovely dessert presentation (plate had Happy Veteran's Day written in chocolate. We chose one dessert to share. The Caramel Apple Confit was amazing. It was served with green apple sorbet in a puff pastry. Regrets for this restaurant choice? None. I recommend this upscale (not at all pretentious) restaurant for any occasion.
