If you want excellence in quality of food, service and ambience, go to the Palm d’Or. With the Miami Spice menu, you can have all this at a very reasonable price. Try the shrimp salad for starters or the squid. Both fresh & delicious. For main, we had the beef tenderloin. Perfectly cooked and melted in your mouth. Ended dinner with the cream puff. The picture says it all. Yummy. Great food and a super attentive staff make this one of the best restaurants in Miami.

I absolutely adore this restaurant! Very classy, great food, great service, beautiful location. The French food is out of this world! Best lobster bisque I have had in a long time. I would eat in this restaurant every day if I could! I’m planning to return! Thank you!

Dinner was perfect, wine was perfect, service was perfect! Did Miami spice menu and the octopus ally was tender, flavorful and HUGE! The entree of tenderloin was prepared exactly medium rare as requested and was flavorful and melted in my mouth. I did the upgrade dessert and went for the cheese cart while my hubby did the chocolate cake...both were delicious! Wine pairings of Cakebread Chardonnay with the octopus was nice. The Biltmore Red Bordeaux matched perfectly with the steak too. It was refreshing when I asked between the two Biltmore Reds that the server actually recommended the one that was slightly less. Unusual for Miami and it was refreshing. Loved the service and the quality of the evening.

The service at this place is impeccable. It's almost to the point where it's slightly to much! But it was amazing. The food for the miami spice menu was great. We ordered one extra appetizer between the 2 of us because we were worried it may not be enough food, but if we did not have that extra appetizer we would have been fulfilled with our regular miami spice menu. Absolutely, must get the cream puff. 10/10 would go here again.

I love The Biltmore Hotel, such an iconic place, I have been here for Brunch, for afternoon High Tea and now it was time to try Palme D’Or restaurant. Great place, great staff, we had the Miami Spice dinner menu, really really good, I would highly recommend it. The poached octopus and the Paccheri Lamb Pasta really delicious but the Cream Puff for dessert is to die for, soooooo good @biltmorehotel

I just wrote a long, glowing review of this restaurant, our meal, and the professional, attentive and friendly wait staff, but it disappeared into the ether before it was posted, and I can't write another long review. Suffice it to say that we were delighted to see that Executive chef David Hackett and his sous chef Rogelio Fiallo, together with Pastry Chef Olivier Rodriguez have restored the Palme d'Or to its former glory as one of the best, and probably the very best of restaurants in Miami. We had a fabulous Miami Spice meal there last night, and shall certainly be returning, especially now that it is possible to order ala carte with such sublime food in an enchanting setting.

The food was awful!

They gave us a hard, stale French bread. We asked for a fresh batch and they brought us a delicious brioche.

The crab salad, wasn’t crab. It looked like scrambled eggs with a piece of romaine lettuce thrown onto the plate.

I had corvina, as main coarse. It was tasteless.

The only thing good was the brioche bread and dessert.

Complete ripoff!!!

Wonderful! Miami Spice menu probably the best in Miami besides that this is the best restaurant in Miami. Not at all trendy and marketing. Service is impeccable as staff is clearly well trained unlike so many restaurants in Miami including the trendy expensive ones in Wynwood. Rosemary was terrific. The stuffed Oxtail crepe incredible, the seared foie gras incredible, the seared duck incredible, and the hanger steak incredible. And of course the cheese tray was divine. Even the Biltmore's own Bordeaux selections were great.

My husband and I have celebrated our anniversary at Palm d'Or several times and we have been pleased, even though lately I have missed the extra elegant touch they used to show (bringing the food with covered with the silvered dome and other details). For the first course I had the OXTAIL CREPE that it looked like a tiny square phyllo pastry (the name was misleading for me) and it was good anyway. The second course was the CORVINA, a little small but good. The best thing, the dessert, absolutely outstanding. It was CREAM PUFF which the waitress recommended and she was right. My husband had the CRAB SALAD that looked very good but he did not touch the long romaine lettuce leaf, the second course was JACKMAN RANCH WAGYU STRIP STEAK, which has a name a lot larger than the portion and he failed to understand the extra 26 charge. While he was eating it he complained about the portion size. The dessert the MACAROON TART that looked delicious. They also brought a tray with candies with Happy Anniversary written on it. That was a nice touch, When the check arrived and he saw the extra $26 charge he was upset. The waiter said they could make and adjustment but he said no, that he was going to pay it but, according to him, it was misleading because since it did not have the dollar sign. The manager came in and she explained that Diamond restaurants are not allowed to write the $ sign or the word extra. Later I told him that for me it was not confusing and he said that he thought 26 supplement had something to do with nutrition. He said that he was not a coming back but I have a different opinion. I think the what really made him upset was the small size of his dish, that he said it needed 2 more strips (they were tiny) even before he knew the high price. I agree that the strip steak was way overpriced. Overall it was satisfactory with the exception of that particular dish. Since I have a sweet tooth, I still remember how I savored every bite of that dessert.

The evening began on an off note when we had to wait several minutes for the hostess to appear and then seat us at a table which was missing bread plates and the oil lamp. Especially weird since the dining room was only about half full. Otherwise service was excellent from the well trained staff. We selected the Spice Week menu along with wine pairings. The wines were all lovely, and the food overall was very good. Portion sizes for the starters and mains varied from large to petite with no apparent logic as to cost of ingredients. For the sample, the crab salad was a full dinner plate but the octopus was small. The seared duck breast, although tender and flavorful, was over cooked and flabby. One final comment: don’t expect to receive the house baked loaf of bread routinely served to each table. Spice Week guests receive only a few thin slices of baguette.

We had an amazing experience from the moment we arrived. The decor is so quaint with a charming oks world ambiance. Our party was seated immediately and the service was impeccable. From the appetizers, the seared foie gras, crab salad and poached octopus to main courses Jack man Wagyu strip steak, seared duck breast and corvina, were all cooked to perfection. Last but not least the desserts, the cream puff, macaroon tart and the selection of international cheeses, all delightful. An explosively delicious experience. Loved it and recommend it for a memorable occasion.

Great food, service and ambience. Only gripe was that their published Miami Spice menu had the foie gras included as an appetizer without an up-charge. However the menu at the restaurant had it for a $15 up-charge. Kind of misleading.

For appetizer, we ordered crab salad and stuffed oxtail crepe. I really love the oxtail crepe for its meat texture and flavor. The curry oil in the crab salad is very overpowering. The whole romaine lettuce is bit hard to eat. I think it would be better to use a couple of the big leaves as the holding vessel and finely chop the rest and mix well with the crab meat.

For main course, we had Corvina and Seared duck breast. The corvina is excellent in taste and texture. The duck breast itself is pretty good but it could use a bit more of the duck jus. The Swiss chard is very salty and the portion of sweet potato purée could be increased a bit more.

For desert, we had cream puff and chocolate cake. The cream buff is excellent. The chocolate cake is a bit on the heavy side. It pairs well with a cup of coffee.

Jenny is our waitress. She is a bit reserved compare to the other waitress who took care of our neighboring tables. The other waitress gave a detailed and vivid description of the food in the menu, had an upbeat personality and energy level. Jenny on the other had is very polite and says the minimum.

My wife and I went for Miami Spice on Wednesday 8/7/19. The spice menu offers 3 courses for $39 per person. So, how did our bill come out to $160 after tax and tip? First, we ordered 2 glasses of wine at $14 per glass (cheapest per glass price on menu). We ordered the foie gras for a $10 upchage per person. This piece of foie gras was the size of a soup spoon. Three tiny bites worth! But, it was absolutely delicious! Come on Palm D'Or, why so stingy? For our main course we both ordered the hanger steak. It was served luke warm, horribly sliced into chunks that were so dry as to be inedible. I couldn't believe it! We both sent our orders back. The manager came over to talk to us. She very generously offered us their $26 up charge Waygu sirloin steak as a substitute for no additional cost. We waited nearly 20 minutes for the steak to arrive. When it was served, I noticed that it seemed overly charred. We were each served 4 slices. One of my slices of this very expensive steak had a vein running through the meat making eating it a chore. If this was really Waygu steak, than the kitchen did all they could to ruin it. It was more akin to sliced Chateaubriand. Definitely not a well marbled piece of meat. For dessert my wife ordered the chocolate mousse cake and I had the mango macaroon torte. Both desserts were excellent.
For what it's worth, Miami Spice always results in a bill easily double the price of the original offer. Either the menu item you really want has a high up-charge, or the price of drinks are sky high. Either way you will find that the Miami Spice offerings are really NO BARGAIN!

When I read about Palme d’or I very impressed by their five diamond award and being one of three restaurants in South Florida to hold that title. So you can imagine I held this restaurant to a very high standard. After dining the food was amazing the restaurant was beautiful the service was good but I wasn’t wowed or blown away I was expecting more especially after spending $300 on a Miami spice menus and drinks. It’s the experience that counts and I could of had the same experience at a 3 star restaurants.

Only disappointed that they charged for foix gras which was listed in Miami spice as included. Also, last years, they included cheese plate as alternative to dessert. Also, used to present dishes with cover and flair. This time they just brought the plates and stated what was on it. Otherwise we love the ambiance and service

Let give it the benefit of the doubt... it was all because of 4th July. I had booked a table to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary and had mentioned it in my booking.... Nothing came out of it, we got a average table in a corner close to the service exit but this is more of a detail.
Let’s start with the menu, instead of a proper menu where you could chose from several a number of option, they had a 4th July menu, 3 starters, 3 mains .... and one starter was not available.
The wine, I was unfortunate the wine I chose was not available but got to know it once we were done with the starters. Let’s talk about the starters: it was a Gumbo with Andouillette .... at least one the menu, instead of the Andouillette came a sort of Italian sausage which was tasteless.
Main course was good but there was an issue in the kitchen and got mine once my wife had finished hers. By that time the fire workers started and we asked if we could go on the terrasse and watch them.... I was asked to put my credit card down before being able to do so !!!!! I thought this was ridiculous for a restaurant of that level.
We finished dîner quickly, paid and left..... Terrible experience for a 10th wedding anniversary celebration, la Palme D’Or should think about renaming themselves as le Navet D’Or. my suggestion is that if you don’t want to be open on 4th July, close - don’t fool your customers and offer half of the service and value whilst
Charging them the same price or be honest and tell
Upfront that due to Public holiday you are working with reduced staff and a set menu.

My second but for sure my last time there
