Le Zoo is an energetic celebration of timeless French-Mediterranean flavors. Capturing the coveted common ground between European elegance and effortless South Florida sophistication, the 200-seat restaurant is a special place where gilded Old World decor plays alongside tropical planters and vintage French design touches. The food, drawing deeply from the refined cooking of Provence, is a transporting experience, ranging from the freshest fruits de mer and chic pizzas to pristine carpaccios, tartares and other signatures of Gallic coastal cuisine. Serving lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, Le Zoo brings out Francophile in all of us.

    Unbelievable expensive wine and the pouring is laughable. Ordered a carafe of Sancerre for $86 and there was barely enough for 2 glasses. We found this an insult to our intelligence. Ordered 2 apps and 2 entrees. Escargot served in a ramekin, already out of their shall, rather than the traditional snail plate. It was okay but not great. Tuna tartare was really ordinary. Steak frites was good but fries not as good as they should have been in a French restaurant. My trout almondine was good and a nice portion. We we running over $200 and feeling ripped off, so we skipped dessert. For that price in NYC (ie Baltazar or Lafayette) we could have gotten an all around excellent French meal. Miami shouldn’t accept such low standards.

    We love Le Zoo and visit frequently. Menu is simple and delicious. Our servers are always very polite. My only complaint is that the hostesses at the front desk seem to be in a bad mood sometimes, they are blunt and not very accommodating when the customer approaches them to request something. It does get very busy sometimes, but I feel as if they treat people in a condescending manner. To be on the safe side, always make your reservation in advance. Besides that, all is perfect.

    Server was lovely and very knowledgeable on all the meal choices and also the beverages. Manager was funny when he came over to pour our water and gave me sparking into my regular water - when I pointed it out - he said - well you have a mix now!!! But when I told server she was very apologetic and took my glass away and came back with a clean glass and full glass of regular iced water. I was surprised at his response to be honest! Overall a lovely meal with a bit of a strange atmosphere - eating in a restaurant in a shopping mall - also had a kid next to us with a very loud irritating game on his phone - his mother and another person with him were totally ignoring him and the noise and just chatting over wine! Modern parenting!

    Service and ambiance are superb! The pizza with sausage made or a shared appetizer. This was delicious. The mussels were divine. My wife's branzino was tasty. Overall, we have been there 3 times in the last few months and will return again. We just love the food.

    Le Zoo is always a gastronomical and social event. Sabrina, the manager, always goes well above and beyond to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience for her guests. Her team collaborate together to craft a memorable meal replete with bold flavors and professional service. Le Zoo should be the first and last stop in Miami for anyone craving leisurely European-style casual-plus dining.

    We are so disappointed, this used to be our favorite spot and q great experience where we invite our friends and family because food was amazing, now brunch is just a regular plate that in the last times become more and more simple, not flavor, bad presentation and quality of food is poor even q exam noticed in the coffees. So sad that a nice place like This lost quality but keep the price that now is not worth it for. Hopefully they will Come back to what was long time ago.

    Le Zoo did not have the same quality of food and service as it had before COVID. The food variety was minimal and the prices were very high. Aldo there was no chef specials.

    I went to Le Zue for the Miami Spice event. I look at the menu before from the website and the name of the dishes look very sophisticated. In addition, it was Michelin's recommended. My experience with the food was very disappointed, I didn't like it at all. The place looks cute but old and not well maintained. Nevertheless, the service was excellent, and my experience overall was good.

    The food was mediocre. Specifically the escargot "soup" and the pate. The onion soup was too salty. The trout was OK but a little dry. Finally, the waiter was too worried about explaining to us what amount of tip was appropriate.

    I found this restaurant in the guide de Michelin. Usually it means that at least the food should be good. This is the case in Europe. It wasn’t the case with Le Zoo. It claims to be a French restaurant, there are some dishes with French names, the quality however is lacking : the bread was stale ( not baked earlier that day)the escargot instead of being in the butter/ garlic sauce were swimming in the soup of a greasy substance , cucumber soup also consisted of something greasy- definitely not just cucumber . Tuna tartare was good. The service was excellent, no complaints there. The lunch for 2 costs $200: 4 appetizers , 2 glasses of wine and one desert. Now I mistrust Guide de Michelin , at least in USA.
