Palme d’Or has an ambitious menu that is unevenly executed. The six-course tasting menu has standout dishes like the pork and the scallops, but others like the lobster and the beef fall flat. Portions are limited to one or two bites per course.

The service is courteous and attentive, but feels rote and rehearsed (“Is everything excellent so far?”)

Dinner for two with wine will cost about $400. At that price point, the restaurant holds itself out against the best restaurants in Miami. It falls very short.

Palme d’Or has promise, but ultimately reveals itself to be a hotel restaurant masquerading as fine dining.

We heard that the Chef Gregory is not coming back. You could already see that something was off. I certainly hope that they hire someone at least as good as him. We believe Gregory is the best chef in Miami.

The only option on the menu was a 6 or 8 course tasting menu at $115n or 175. If you were not expecting to eat at least 6 courses, you are faced with negotiating less courses for a ridiculously priced option. Additionally, when they called to confirm the reservation, they kindly ask if there are any allergies they should be aware of. Although we told them of my 2 allergies, one relayed the message to the wit staff who first came out with something I could not eat. When informed, they return with a plate full of the second items I could not eat. I would definitely not recommend it!

My wife and I did not have dinner at Palme d'Or. We had a culinary and artistic experience. The meal is one of two tasting menus; either 11 courses or 6 courses. The 6 course menu provides 3 selections for each course. I selected the 11 course menu. Each course was delectable. While I cannot remember all the courses, the highlights were scallops, squab, frogs legs, black cod, kobi beef and an incredible chocolate dessert. While the food was exquisite, the presentations were spectacular. Each course was a work of art that was presented with a flourish. Finally, but certainly not an afterthought, was the service. The wait staff was perfectly professional; not too little attention nor fawning but just right. Toward the end of meal, the Chef visited to ask how we enjoyed the evening. It made the evening personal. It was evident he took pride in his creations and wanted to insure that his quests did as well.

The restaurant is located in The Biltmore Hotel which is a historical gem that should not be missed. Together they make an irresistible pair. It was a night we will not soon forget.

This was such a fun night. The staff made everything fabulous. The food was on the nines and the seating was of a beautiful view of the historic pool. The restaurant in itself is a good reason to go to the Biltmore hotel, but I love Architecture and this place has it. I’m adding this hotel to my bucket list to stay at.

The food is excellent and beautifully presented. No complaints at all.

The service is efficient but lacks any personality. Staff are completely scripted and if you ask a question, they’re flushed and don’t have the answers. The maitre d’ was busy doing nothing, never approached our table at all and seems to put the fear of God up the wait staff.

The dining room is pleasant - vast and not very busy. Sadly the Biltmore seems to have seen better days. The bar lacked any atmosphere and smells fusty. Furniture is tired and battered.

It’s all about the food, but that’s not really enough!

We've been lucky to go to Palme d'Or once a year for the last 15 years. It is always an incredible experience. Last night, 15 years later, it was the best it has ever been. The scallops, squab and pork were as good as I've had. Certainly, not cheap. However, based on the food and service it feels like a good value for a splurge.

It would be a waste of time to explain each and every little detail lacking at Palme d'Or. Training and exceptional service must be your first step. The dishes lack imagination and soul. Chef Gregory Pugin missed on his delivery of dishes. It could have helped if he was present in the kitchen which leaves me to suggest the sous-chef lacks discipline.
Typical Miami. With much sorrow and regret, this will be the last time dinning here.

Excellent French-inspired cuisine with the opportunity to taste a variety of inspired works of culinary art. Some of the dishes might have needed more subtle supporting cast; for example the celeriac overshadowed the king crab. Some outstanding choices from the 6-course tasting menu included the "La Saint Jacques" and the "Le Loup de Mediterranee". The dishes are diminutive, although you do not leave hungry given the infinite variety of breads that are served with each dish. This was our favorite spot for our anniversary dinners and we flew in from out of state this year to celebrate our 20th at Les Palmes D'Or.

There's nothing wrong with the ambience but once the food and wine start to arrive you soon forget where you are. We had the six-course Valentine's weekend tasting menu with accompanying wines and all the dishes were excellent. The wines with each course were well-paired and enhanced the meal. The friendly service is exceptional without being stuffy. It's expensive, but it's hard to put a value on such experiences. A lot of work by many people goes into preparing the dishes and serving them. This is fine dining at its best. Highly recommended.

This was the best food I have ever eaten. I've been to several countries and places in the U.S. and it doesn't compare. My husband and I ate at Palme d'Or on valentines day. We had the course meal. It was very small portions but by the time we were finished we were extremely full. I love getting to try small samplings of different types of food. The atmosphere was so romantic and they made you feel like an important guest. They even threw in a few extra things to make your experience just a little better. The chocolate cart that you can select truffles that the chef made, and leaving with homemade macaroons. The only complaint I have was that they assumed you knew what all of the items on the menu meant. When I asked them to explain they really didn't go into detail. The explanation of the food is nearly as good as eating it. I would still recommend this restaurant to someone looking for a unique dining experience.

The cuisine at this wonderful French restaurant in Coral Gables rivals Per Se in New York City. Each course was nothing less than spectacular, and I even enjoyed a delicious white Chateau de Pape—a rarity in the U.S. Thank you for all you’ve done to make our family so welcomed, for so many years. —BV, on behalf of John E.

Let me just start by saying, I had the best fine dining experience tonight at the Palme d'Or. The food was spectacular and the service was excellent. The presentation and the taste of all of the dishes was exquisite. I had the Chef Tasting Menu, which was 11 course and I definitely enjoyed each one. Our server was perfect, she had the greatest attention to detail in making sure we enjoyed our dining experience. I will be sure to visit again! Five stars!!

Again an amazing experience. We decided to get the 11 course chef’s tasting menu tonight. Each course was beautifully presented and the flavors were incredible. The amuse bouche was a great introduction to the night. And the journey only got more interesting with each plate, from the caviar to the fish and lastly the cheese and dessert. The service was attentive and welcoming, and the ambience was perfect. We have been to many Michelin starred restaurants around the world and I can definitely say Miami is lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber in its backyard. Definitely worth the price to be able to witness such an incredible culinary experience.

As longtime patrons of Palme d'Or, we have enjoyed many wonderful meals there. However, we did not enjoy our New Year's Eve dinner. The food was fair, the service was terrible, we were rushed, plates were picked up from the table before everyone had finish the course. Finally there was a constant pounding coming from the ballroom upstairs. Needless to say we where very disappointed.

We went to Palm d’ Or for New Year’s Eve. We arrived at 7:00 PM so the restaurant was quiet... maybe 4 tables.
Servers were kind abd professional and food was very well prepared and served... but... it took forever between plates (it was a fixed menu). We spent over 3 hours there... my 4 year old couldn’t take over 3 hours dinner and my husband ended taking her to the room and missing the las 2 courses...
