About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Chef Daniel Serfer, a Miami native, opened two restaurants in his home town - Blue Collar in 2012 and Mignonette in 2014. Serfer didn't always aspire to be a chef, let alone a restaurateur with a flagship at a hooker motel. His goal was to be a criminal defense attorney but while studying for the LSAT he realized his inspiration came from cooking and not the law. Danny’s cooking is from-scratch, straightforward and delicious. Serfer is able to oscillate between casual American comfort food and elegance with ease, and his restaurants reflect his no frills, full flavor attitude.

Great place to dine. Some really quality offerings on the wine list. Food is delicious. What really made our dinner special was our server, Fatma (sp?). She was attentive, made great suggestions, and made sure we were never without wine. She paid attention to the details which showed she really cares for her guests. Thank you, we will certainly return.

This restaurant is in an old diner. It looks okay, but the renovations aren’t as nice as they could be. The prices are a bit pricey considering the food is mediocre. My boyfriend had the oysters Rockefeller and the lobster roll. He said the oysters were okay and the roll was doughy. I had the lobster tail and it was pretty dry. The service was good and the waiter was very nice. I would suggest going once and maybe you’ll order something really good. We did have a nice time.

Nice surprise in NMB. This is an old diner turned into an authentic and fun lunch/dinner spot specializing in fresh seafood and fish. The quality of the food and ingredients were above and beyond our expectations. We wouldn't hesitate tor recommend it and return again.

Absolutely Delicious! I was looking for a restaurant near an event I was attending and Mignonette appeared in the search feature. As a first time visitor, with no knowledge of what to expect, it did not disappoint. My friend and I chose the Miami Spice menu. Each course and accompanying wine was outstanding. I will definitely return and next time order the oysters.

Not exactly a twin to the original in regards to quality or service! My fish was dry though nicely seasoned. As we were finishing our meal, our server walked up to announce the total amount of the check! Not sure I've ever encountered that previously and I was hosting a business lunch making it a little uncomfortable.

This is my third visit to Mignonette. Again, food was amazing. Plain Branzino is excellent as are the clams casino. Sides amazing as well- had french fries this time- so good. Service was excellent also- Nice wines as well. Can't say enough about this restaurant. Always a great meal.

Great mimosas during brunch... crab, lobster and lox latkes were very tasty but too much for one meal. Took one home for hubby to enjoy. We were there on a Sunday around 2:30 - they ran out of lobster rolls which I heard is a common thing... next time we'll get there earlier... lobster rolls there are highly recommended!

We enjoyed the Miami Spice menu on Saturday night. They presented the Spice menu with their main menu, they did not require us to ask for it like so many other restaurants do, which I find annoying. The food was delicious, our server was knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list, and was very attentive. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience.

Food was very good, especially the crab cakes..One of the diners ordered from the Spice menu.
The grouper was excellent, however , the portion was extremely small. Mentioned that to the waiter, and was told that because Spice is a promotion the portion is smaller. This portion was shockingly smaller. We haven't experienced that at any other Spice restaurant this August. We weren't looking for any kind of credit, just wanted to let the restaurant know that we were not happy about that.

The place was empty and they still asked if I had a reservation, I did ,but no one came in after me and that was at 7:40
They don't charge but they don't ask if you want Bread- stupid
We ordered king crab cocktail and I highly doubt it was king crab very small very expensive
And our entrées looked very under whelming, small portions, even though it did have a nice flavor
It's a diner the Faces Biscayne Blvd., Way overpriced would not recommend

We were looking to satisfy our craving for lobster rolls. Thanks to Open Table we discovered this place. The lobster and the rolls were delectable. Located in a diner on Biscayne Boulevard, the restaurant not only has great seafood -- oysters, mussels, branzino, etc -- but buttermilk fried chicken, which will be my order next time I am there, which I hope will be soon. The sides are yummy and those who don't like seafood could have a great vegetable plate. Great service, and a very caring waitperson (thanks, Carolyn!)

Been a fan of Mignonette for a long time but menu really needs to be updated and changed. Food at new place was not as good as downtown location. Oysters were "sketchy." Seemed like they were near to being discarded as no longer fresh. Main courses were underwhelming. Just an unexpectedly lackluster experience, likely my last until they reset their menu.
