“Disappointed on Valentines Day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I had trouble finding a table a week in advance for Valentines Day. db Bistro was had space, and I thought it would be safe given Daniel Boulud's reputation. Alas, the experiences was mediocre, which was especially galling given the up-charge for the special prix fix meal. The dishes seemed to have been prepared in advance, rather than to order. While they had the look and menu descriptions typical of high-end cutting edge restaurants, the execution did not match. The wine pairings were hit or miss, and several were especially bad choices with the food. The services was also not up to the price. We had to wait for our table, and then experienced less than professional attention. I realize that Valentine's Day is often a bad time to eat out, but I wouldn't return here on a bet.

“Flawless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

We recently dined at DB while vacationing in Miami. My expectations were relatively high, but were definitely exceeded. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The service was perfect. The food was superb. I look forward to visiting Miami again so that we may take advantage of this terrific restaurant.

“The best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

No need to say anything about Daniel Boulud. He is one of the best, having 2 restaurants in NYC ( one of them is three michelin stars) and one in Miami. Every dish is just a masterpiece. Foie gras, tartar, fish with green carry, even if you want to have just a cheese plate with a glass of vine - you should come here and try it.
If you are keen on sweets, don`t waste your time and take an assortув plate, i`m sure you gonna love it.
Many thanks for the brunch and personal meeting with Daniel ! That was amazing.

Absolutely the best food experiences we've had in Miami in decades. Great food, great service, wonderfully quiet, and the food presentation was exceptional. Bravo! We'll be back.

“Went for dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Experience was good. Restaurant was quite empty on a Fri night. The individual who served us acted a bit odd and didnt seem very comfortable but dessert was great.
