Seafood
Mignonette is a Miami oyster bar brought to you by Chef Daniel Serfer and Ryan Roman. We have a the freshest selections of oysters (flown in daily), seafood, meat, and veggies.

Reservations will be held for 10 minutes past the reservation time. We ask if you are running late to please call us. Also, due to the limited amount of seating we have because of the virus, we would appreciate your help by staying no longer than 2 hours.

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.

Drawing on the success of Blue Collar, Mignonette provides a fun environment where patrons can enjoy a dozen oysters, a bottle of champagne, classic seafood preparations like Oysters Rockefeller and Clams Casino, and a Fancy shellfish tower. Once again Serfer is excited to bring a unique oyster bar experience to the guests who have made Blue Collar so popular.

Since reopening, Mignonette is better than ever. By far the best seafood in Miami, along with a relaxed atmosphere and excellent service.

We absolutely love this little gem in our new neighborhood. We've visited twice in the past month and both times the food and service were exceptional.

On our most recent visit, last night, we had the pleasure of Michelles' advice and service. She made the experience even better with her great recommendations and attention.

We just figured out if you want a more quiet and romantic table request one in the front room, they've got a few tables where you are a little more distant from the adjacent table.

It's not that the second room is an issue nor are the tables "too" close, we just prefer a little more privacy. We wouldn't ever hesitate to accept any table offered, just to be perfectly clear.

Service was good. Food was average, most dishes were on the salty side. No complexity nor innovation in flavor. We went because we found that Mignonette shows up on multiple best restaurants in Miami lists. We think the restaurant is on the lower end of that list.

extremely underwhelmed. this was my go to local restaurant for a while. I would literally dream about their mussels in red sauce. This time around the portion as size of the mussels were much smaller and the sauce too spicy. The crab cakes were delicious but were served cold. The water was served warm. The veggie plate was not up to snuff. I have eaten all these dishes before so i know how good they can be. Maybe I can chalk it up to an off night, I certainly hope so. I'm not rushing back

This is a fantastic place that should not be missed. Funky diner like atmosphere with incredible service and food. Fresh and different. The spicy muscles are amazing and conch like nowhere else. Plenty of fresh and tasty items to choose from. Worth going out of your way.

It’s become my favorite restaurant in Miami. Great food - good service and good ambiance. It can get a little noisy when full but just adds to the feeling of a friendly local bistro.

My experience was mediocre at best. The sea food tower cam after 40 minutes. Some of the oysters were sitting below the melted ice !! The room yo the right was very cold, harshly lit, noisy. The maitre D refused to consider moving us to a table in the front room when one was to be available. The crispy skin snapper was delicious

Fish was delicious. Bread pudding dessert was very dry and disappointing, even though in the past it had been one of the best desserts in Miami. Even though their bread pudding had at one time been one of the best desserts in Miami – and the reason I went to Mignonette (and Blue Collar), the bread pudding was extremely dry, lacked the delicious taste it used to have, and was very disappointing. Appetizers were good.

Delicious fish dishes and good selection of wines. I had the grouper and my friend had the lobster roll. Recommend both. A perfect spot for before or after going to the theatre., opera or ballet. Only a few blocks from the Adrienne Arsht Center.

Our food took an unreasonable amount of time to come out. After 1 hour and 45 minutes we just asked for our food to go. The crispy snapper was fried too hard, the Brussel sprouts were mushy and burnt. The bomba rice was over cooked it was mush.

The appetizers were delicious. The waiter was pleasant but did not acknowledge the extremely slow service with any kind of explanation or apology. I picked this restaurant because I love oysters and i like their commitment to social justice. I really wanted to like this restaurant. I hope this was a one time thing.

Great seafood menu and consistent good quality. The starters, sides and desserts are strong elements of the menu. Service is professional and friendly. Casual and comfortable atmosphere...has a great 'neighborhood joint' ambience which is not easy to find in Miami. Mignonette works well for a group.

Literally everything was amazing. We had oysters, popcorn fried shrimp, wahoo crudo, whole fish (yellow snapper) and key lime pie. PLUS we sampled our friends red fish and grouper and bread pudding. I never need to eat anywhere else in south Florida. WOW!!!!

Food was absolutely incredible. Fresh and amazing.
Service at the table was great too. However, there was no hostess when we went so to check in for our reservation was super chaotic. We ended up waiting over an hour from the time we checked in to getting seated

This is one of the best meals I’ve had in recent history, and the restaurant itself is very unassuming. Service was excellent - I felt tended to but never bothered. Recommending to everyone visiting Miami! Their chef and kitchen staff is truly talented!

This is such a cute and humble looking place and then you get served SUPER fresh oysters of the day. You then realize you’ve arrived at a good place. Everything was delicious yet I think I could have stayed with raw bar offerings and all their veggies! Limited wines but knowledgeable and friendly staff to help you select. If we weren’t from out of town, it would be one of our regular places!
