“Good food- but over attentive, almost false service”

Not a relaxing meal. This restaurant should let the food speak for itself . It is also quite expensive for South Beach. Didn't really work for us.

“Worth it for the wine list alone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is a 10-table boutique restaurant driven by the vision of the manager, Patrick Gruest. (There are more tables by the pool and on a terrace -- we loved it inside.) He pollinates the menu with dishes from celebrity chefs he recruits from France for annual visits. Several of the dishes were remarkable. The wine list is his creation -- one little treasure after another, and reasonably priced. Very hospitable and warm (perhaps largely thanks to Silvia) but at the same time correct in the French way. Highly recommended.

“Lovely meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

The food was of the highest order and one of the best meals I have had in the US. We had different starters; lobster ravioli (which was excellent) and the vegetable tart (which was very good). We both had the sea bass which was exceptional. The sommelier is of the "directional" European style rather than of the effusive style typically found in the US but that was fine for us. On his recommendation we had a very good bottle of 'grenache gris' from the south of France.

“Ties as one of my two favorite meals in Miami Beach.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This lovely gem is tucked inside a leaf-cladden boutique hotel, so it is a bit tough to find. But once we did, oh, it was like unearthing a secret treasure! The Vegetable Tart is nothing less than amazing, something I could eat everyday but never reproduce because the preparation was technical magic. Everything was delicious, and Patrick selected wines for us that paired perfectly with the flavors in our food.
