Wonderful SpotBistro 241 is a unassuming looking place, but with a great menu, great food and a wonderful feel to it. We have now been there 4 times without any disappointments. The owner, Elie, remembered us each time, even knowing where we sat and what we ordered. He makes you feel like a life long friend and special guest. We will continue to return regularly.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my second visit inThis was my second visit in 2 weeks - even had the exact same meal because I enjoyed it so much the first time - the beet salad and the chicken paillard were excellent! Also enjoyed the pita and hummus (complimentary) and the interesting wine list. Our waiter Alex was a pleasure - so personable and enthusiastic ! And he did a great job too, in a friendly manner. Elli the owner was truly glad to have us there - a very hospitable host ! The parking is a huge asset - easy to park in the "impossible to park" downtown Delray area ! We will be back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved it! Both staff andWe loved it! Both staff and owner made us feel very welcome. Food was terrific.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved it. The food wasWe loved it.

So happy to have discovered this place.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly EnjoyableWe have dined at Bistro 241 with different couples 5 times over the past few months and we and each couple have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Food is excellent, service exceptionally accomodating and we highly recommend Bistro 241 for a great meal. We also like its Pineapple Grove location - close to Atlantic Ave, but without the noise and traffic. The soups are homemade and thick with the main ingredients. The meat dishes such as short ribs with winter vegetables or lamb oso bucco were excellent as were all of the fish dishes from salmon, to yellowtail, to grouper to scallops over risotto. And desserts from chocolate lava cake to lemon/raspberry parfait to creme brulee topped the meals perfectly.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMthe food was delicious. wethe food was delicious. we will be back! everyone had a great meal and the dessert was outstanding as well. very friendly atmosphere. can't wait to go back4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBistro 241 a great additionBistro 241 a great addition to Pineapple Grove - we had terrific fresh salads, then grouper, snapper, salmon and chicken, and everyone raved.

We had 15 people including my 4 year old son and we were all accomodated perfectly. Everyone was comfortable and taken care of so graciously and warmly! Our host, the owner, Eli, was willing and helpful! It made our whole evening so amazing and unforgetable! I live in Sarasota and my mom lives in Delray so I didn't know this restaurante first hand. I trusted the reviews and was not sorry at all! It was amazing! The food was delicious and our party ordered everything from the scallops, to salmon, to roast chicken, to shrimp and no one was the least bit unhappy! Everyone loved the ambience! Great music! Great wait staff! Seriously people, the best!!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Favorite RestaurantOnce again another great dinner!!!

We have had wonderful meals there four times in the past few months and each time the food is fresh, interestingly prepared and presented, delicious and reasonably priced for the top quality. In past visits I have had a great short rib platter and an enjoyable lamb osso bucco special, as well as the best mushroom soup I've ever had. This visit each of the six in the party had fish dishes or scallops and all were delighted. They are exceptionally accomodating to any food restrictions and cheerfully make appropriate substitutions when asked. The wine list is good and we have tried a different wine each visit without disappointment. Topping off the enjoyable evening were excellent shared desserts.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food, great service,aexcellent food, great service,a very enjoyable evening.their scallop dishe.the special was a salmon dish just great.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time diningThis was our second time dining at 241 and it was an excellent experience. The server was new and was not familiar with alcohol. But she was gracious and went out of her way to please. The food (grouper, veal and mahimahi) was excellent with beautiful presentation. The desserts were to die for--the lemon custard and the Belgian chocolate lava cake. Both were extraordinary.

The owner was very attentive to our celebrating an anniversary the evening we were there. Our waitperson was great. The food was presented perfectly and the flavors were superb. My party of four had a great dining experience and would recommend Bistro 241 without hesitation.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to Bistro 241We have been to Bistro 241 5 or 6 times. It is one of our "go to" places for dinner with friends. The food is very good, and the restaurant is a very comfortable place to hang out. The service is never rushed . . . and the maitre'd and wait staff are helpful and friendly.
The restaurant is family-owned and some of the recipes come from "mom."
Our latest meal was with two other couples . . . all liked the food, and the maitre'd's recommendation re: wine was spot on.
We have sat outside and inside . . . both are charming, in different ways.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful addition to Delray BeachWhat a great restaurant in Delray Beach. The service was excellent.
