The place has a unique decoration and the food was amazing. The price is high but the service is first class. It is perfect for a date, very romantic.

We love to eat their tasting menu with wine pairing whenever we're in Miami Beach. Always exciting given the menu and the more than 300 wines on their eclectic list. So it was an easy jump for us with our small South Beach wedding party of 30 people - go to Patrick's place for a reception dinner on their outdoor... More

Located in the Cadet Hotel, Pied-A-Terre should not be missed especially if you like attention to detail and being fussed over. The atmosphere is intimate, there are about 5 tables and we were never made to feel rushed. This is thoughtful dining with care given to all aspects of the experience. . . linen napkins and fresh cut roses on... More

Great ambiance and a first class service. French cuisine in a delightful little room. I would recommend this place for a romantic night out or an intimate gathering among friends.

Dined here after desiring a place located a bit off from the "main" strip of South Beach. The restaurant is small, but that is the whole point, hence the "home away from home" theme. The décor was quaint, and I cannot say enough of the level of service we had - the dining staff really worked well together and were... More

We went there within the scope of Miami Spice and enjoyed a three course meal. The small French restaurant is lead by a Russian family. They offer decent service and even speak a little French, however the real charme of the country is missing. This transfers somehow to the food. The beef was chewy and the delivered sides and sauces... More

Sorry for your disappointing experience, we are not the style you were looking for being in Miami Beach.. some corrections to your statement. The ownership is not Russian at all, the General Manager is French/US, the owner of the hotel is American/Argentinian. Some of our staff in the front of the house is Russian and very professional. Choosing the Miami... More

Overall our visit was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant certainly lives up to its hype as being intimate and romantic. Service is excellent, Patrick is charming and obviously extremely knowledgeable about his wines - and very willing to share this knowledge with you, without any attempt of breaking the bank.. So why did I not give that 5th star?... More

If you are a foodie and appreciate exquisite cuisine, this place is for you. Service is great and food is excellent. Quinoa salad, crab mille-feuille, duo de foie gras, rack of lamb, and deconstructed log and vacherin were amazing!
