Mignonette is a Miami oyster bar brought to you by Chef Daniel Serfer and Ryan Roman. We have a great selection of oysters, seafood, veggies and prime rib.<br /><br />Daniel Serfer, a Miami native, opened his first restaurant, Blue Collar, in January 2012. Frequented by locals and visitors alike, Blue Collar offers American comfort food in a casual setting attached to a hooker motel.<br /><br />Drawing on the success of Blue Collar, Mignonette provides an approachable, fun environment where patrons can enjoy a dozen oysters, a bottle of champagne, classic seafood preparations like Oysters Rockefeller and Clams Casino, and a kickass prime rib. Once again driven to create the kind of restaurant he enjoys, Serfer is excited to bring a unique oyster bar experience to the guests who have made Blue Collar so popular. This new spot isn’t attached to a hooker motel, but since oysters are an aphrodisiac, you may end up back at the motel when all is said and done.

"FINALLY a great Oyster bar, seafood and fish restaurant in Miami! We had Oysters - excellent, the crudo appetizer was the best ever tasted and the whole black bass was superbly prepared to perfection. Being a Mainer I had to try the Lobster Roll. The lobster was served on a homemade buttered & grilled (without crushing it) brioche roll with butter. Best I've had (outside of 1 other place in Maine). We shared a bottle of Sancerre and had the Bread pudding for dessert, which was again -perfectly prepared and uniquely served with cayenne whipped cream. Sides were also very good. We've found a great spot and will be back.....soon."

Finally authentic Italian cuisine in Miami that is sure to leave your palate craving more. This gorgeous 2400 sq. foot restaurant exudes class and feels like HOME! This is not just your typical Italian eatery, Chicago's very own Sam Villardito, who has made his mark in the Italian food world with Viaggio Restaurant in the heart of Chicago, now brings you the best sultry and savory dishes Italy has to offer, directly to Miami.

"This is not gourmet fare BUT it IS very good homemade cooking prepared and dished nicer than expected and with a good bar if you have to wait. The wine list is weak so we just had liqour, which is a shame. It may seem like a complaint because the service to order is slow as they only had 2 waiters for the entire place - but be patient - once the drink order and food order are given it moves right along. We were 4 and had the brick chicken which the ladies loved and 2 pasta dishes - both prepared well. We WILL be back, which is the best compliment possible."

"Best Manhattan ever- the cherries were special. I've been here several times and usually disappointed but wife and I decided to eat lighter at the bar and give it a try - again. We each had the petite filet and it was both delicious and prepared perfectly. Again - the Manhattans were amazing....well be back."

"The pizza is excellent - the drinks & wine list are well represented - the fish & pasta dinners (except 1 of the 6 had lamb that was overcooked & dry) was excellent BUT somehow this otherwise excellent restaurant wants to freeze the patrons out! I only had a sweater and it wasn't enough...so next time I'll bring a parka! ALL 6 of us left shivering....but the food was excellent and you won't be disappointed. I'm hoping they fix the climate control ...."

"I usually come to PM for lunch and it is always a great ambiance and outstanding food and service. Tonigyt I cam for the first time for dinner. Inside was empty so the wife wanted to dine outside - very nice BUT the empanadas arrived cold, and both fish dishes arrived cold. The arequipe meloja dessert was WOW. Service was attentive so I can only draw the conclusion that outside is too far from the kitchen! I will definitely return but only to eat inside as I don't like a cold fish!!"

"Having been to Japan recently we were looking forward to this style food. The quality of the meats was poor and the wait staff was still a bit unfamiliar with the cuts BUT very familiar with selling too many dishes! I may go back in a few months and try it again after it's been open longer. If you want a few beers and try some okay food give it a try."
