Great food, great wine, civilized setting. A real gem right in the center of South Beach. We highly recommend.

Crab appetizer was fabulous. Veal chop clearly mediocre but expensive. Wine situation was bizarre. We kept trying to order from the wine list and kept being steered to other choices -- he was not up-selling but not honest about their thin inventory. Decor is a cheap and dated -- no investment -- in Miami Beach, it is about style and... More

For sure, we are offering an alternative to the show of and glitz without substance that is widespread in Miami Beach... We offer a calm, discrete environment where our guests can entertain a conversation without the overwhelming decibels of a sound system and a DJ. We are more reminiscent of a fine establishment in Europe. Our wine list is very... More

Nothing special, definitely better places to eat in Miami. We had the filet and the Seabass. Both were just mediocre. Steak was bland and definitely not the best I've had in that price point. Dessert was good. The setting was intimate which is good for couples but a bit stuffy. We are not likely to try this place again with... More

This restaurant offers one of the more romantic atmospheres on the beach and has an interesting approach to French food -- fresh and flavorful without heaviness. The sea bass with broth is peppy and smooth. The wine list offers a wide range of options and has been carefully cultivated. Well worth the treat!

We were returning from an 11 day trip to Cuba, so we were ready for some good food. We had reserved ahead and asked for outside seating . . .

This is truly a wonderful, intimate French restaurant with excellent food and service and a very nice ambience. You cannot go wrong with anything lon the menu and the service is friendly and efficient. A nice change from the 1000 nearby Italian restaurants.

What incredible food this little restaurant serves, but unfortunately the owner is arrogant, obnoxious and rude! His condescending attitude is enough to make you lose your appetite!

As background, we travel and dine out frequently. We fine-dine (5-star) at least once per month, and 4-star dine at least 10x per month, so this is not a one-time "too high of expectations" review. We dined at Pied a Terre on New Year's Eve based on TripAdvisor reviews. We were not aware that it was a Prix Fixe menu,... More

Thanks for dining with us on New Year's Eve. We are pleased you enjoyed our cuisine. The package included a bottle of Champagne for two. We assumed that very few guests would have chosen to have cocktails to start and will enjoy the Champagne as an aperitif. All beverages were available on request. Unlike some venues in our area, we... More
