This small, cozy, and pleasantly quirky French restaurant is a quiet oasis in a charming boutique hotel a block away from the beach. The fare is classic French but carefully modernized - e.g., the classic foie gras pate is paired with a foie gras wrapped in potato pasta, and the scallop ceviche is paired with classic yet surprisingly crispy cauliflower. The tasting menu is a good value, as are the excellent wines paired with it; the dessert was a stand-out. Service is excellent. It's the place to go for excellent classic French food!

The men who run this place are French & are friendly and welcoming. Mgr actually helped with a DC-area stalwart, Auberge Françoise. Modern French executed superbly. Starters - both had the Scallops and Caviar (Cauliflower Blinis, Cauliflower Remoulade), greated white cauliflower with white remoulade with fresh scallops was a lovely white canvas for a dallop of caviar. The blinis were soft and creamy, and I couldve eaten 100. Main course I had the sous vide rack of lamb (Bok Choi, Mashed Potato Scented with Fresh Mint, Lamb Jus Reduction). Lamb was a huge portion and flavorful, and it was tender but not amazingly so. Wife had tender perfectly done lobster on a creamy risotto. A great meal and great atmosphere, escape from the energy of SoBe.

Serious surprise. Food is outstanding. The goose liver terrine was impeccable and the rack of lamb sus vid was world class.

Service was very pleasant but the food was a surprise. Did not expect this kind of food in Miami or at such a small place.

Highly recommended

Most of our meals in Miami Beach have been disappointing, but this restaurant was the one standout exception. Excellent food, and a wine steward that knew just the wine for my grouper and my wife's lamb.

Pricey, but good for a special occasion.

I admit I am not fond of French food much, this place certainly didn't make me change my mind. I got the quinoa salad with avocado, the non-pan fried quinoa was okay, the pan fried had the gritty taste of dirt, was most unpleasant. I had something else to eat but it wasn't memorable enough for me to recall it. It certainly wasn't the worst place to eat in Miami, but it wasn't in my top 10 either. We ate out a lot during the week for every meal...
