Outstanding culinary creations that truly represent the concept of food as art. The diverse flavor experiences are matched by the visual pleasures of the unique presentation of each dish. The excellence of the cuisine is matched by the warm welcome from the Bistro's chef/owner, Edgar Leal. Can't wait to go back and work my way through the highly varied menu.

Delighted to go back to Chef Edgar Leal. The Duck Crepe was spectacular, as well as the Reina Pepiada arepa. Great value in these delicious appetizers. Chef Edgar is always there with his super friendly Team to make sure you have an awesome experience... The Value here is enormous for this Chef that many remember from Cacao in Coral Gables. Will be back soon.

Extraordinary LATIN/Venezuelan food. The cachaza is a good example how sophisticated technics can transform a traditional dish into a more contemporary one. Very please to have Edgar Leal back in Miami.

Tenía grandes expectativas. Pedimos Asopado de Mariscos, el plato lamentablemente no esta a la altura del Chef Leal. Parecía un caldo con cubitos. Les recomendaría sacarlo del menú YA!!
Sin embargo nuestra entrada fueron los tequeños, que son los mejores que comí en mi vida. Ni nos atrevimos a pedir postre y nos obsequiaron un Mouse de chocolate que no estaba en la carta, que estaba delicioso. A pesar de la mala experiencia espero regresar y tener mejor suerte con mi plato.

Edgar and Mariana bring to Miami a comfort food concept that will meet anyone's expectations. They had a special weekend honoring Scannone’s Venezuelan recipes, so we were able to enjoy classic dishes like ”Pastel de Polvorosas” and ”Paste de Chucho y Plátanos, ” both prepared impeccable. The Passion Fruit mouse completed the evening, again bringing back our childhood memories. Edgar is a unique chef and host in his new restaurant in Miami. Come and try this restaurant!

Our experience at LEAL BISTRO + ART was exceptional. Edgar Leal, chef/owner, was gracious, warm and inviting. He highlighted menu items and reviewed his culinary background.
Every item we shared was extraordinary-cachapa as our appetizer, deboned pork ribs with wasabi mashed potatoes as our main, a side of grilled vegetables, and a chocolate tart for dessert.
Each was unique in preparation and each robustly flavorful.
Cannot wait to return and enjoy other items on Edgar's menu.
Truly a special addition to the Wynwood milieu.
