Diner Reviews
  • "Great food, Great for special occasions, We make up special occasions. The food is that good."

  • "The lunch specials for the month of July are fabulous! Will take advantage of it again. I had the grilled skirt steak salad and another person in my party had a sandwich with turkey, bacon and avocado - both were yummy!"

  • "Everything was excellent, especially the prix-fixe 4-course summer menu. And our waiter, Pete, was commendable once again. Of course we'll be back. And soon."

  • "Have been going to this Best Restaurant in Florida for 25 years 20 times a year! Have not had a meal that was not the best we have ever had. The staff is by far the most Professional and warm. Linda remembered our Anniversary she is the best"

  • "This was our first time at Café Chardonnay. It is a beautiful restaurant--so not beachy! We started with drinks at the bar and asked for our table right at the time of the reservations and had no wait. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food; his attentiveness was appropriate. My husband had the lobster and scallops special and I had the veal chop; both of us thought the entrées were outstanding! Both were well prepared exactly to our liking; his came with a pasta and light sauce, mine with risotto which was creamy, not at all sticky and gluey as it can sometimes be presented. The wine list is extensive with a variety of prices. To be clear, however; you are not going to get out of here without spending some bucks!"

  • "The experience was terrific except for one thing. My companion ordered the shrimp appetizer, and one of the shrimp looked like it was the head instead of the meat, and inedible. When we told the waiter about it, nothing was done, not even an apology. I don't think he knew what to do. Everything else was above expectations . The lamb was excellent! We would still come again."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "We have been going to Cafe Chardonnay for the last 5 years and each time it is consistently excellent..., regardless of the season.... whether it is a gourmet seafood dinner or fantastic short ribs or chops, it is always a treat. Plus, the management knows how to treat their clientele. Upscale wine list and milieu."

  • "Cafe Chardonney has 3 dishes I extremely like. Bouillabaisse, duck and yellowtail. This evening I had the Yellowtail. It was great. Our waiter was the best too. Although one of our diners was not satisfied with the dish he ordered (way too fatty) and said it was the worst piece of meat he ever had, I thought the restaurant would at least give us free dessert. It did not happen. I would definitely check the food before digging in next time. This was my first experience that was not the greatest though. Hopefully the food quality will be checked by the Executive Chef next time before it arrives at our table."

  • "Great food, super service, What more could one want from a hidden local gem. We even got hugs at the door even though we only dine there once every couple of months. They even ent out of there way create a special steak meal for one of the diners. Terry Palm Beach Fl"

  • "Our first time at Cafe Chardonnay. The service could not have been any more gracious and friendly. The food was excellent, delicious, inventive. Wish we lived closer to eat there more often. So pleased with our evening!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Once again, we were struck by the contrast between restaurants whose menus promise much but fail to deliver, and the few whose descriptors way underplay the delicious tastes and flavors that await the delivery of any item. And, also once again, we delighted in the selection of two courses of appetizers, in favor of the more traditional - but much heavier and unhealthier - dinner sequence. That left room for two forks to make their way through the lightest-texture flourless chocolate decadence we've encountered."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Was pleasantly surprised with the ambiance...very cozy and nice bar scene, given it was in a retail strip center. We ordered the lobster bisque and loved it! The best we have had in a while! We then ordered the rack of lamp and lamp chop and both were delicious! Service was very good. We were celebrating our anniversary and they gave us a nice cozy table. They also sprinkled "Happy Anniversary" sprinkles on our table...nice touch. Wish we could of had dessert...but, portions were a good size. We will definitely come again."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I had the "Summer special" two times since it started. both times the first two courses were very weak but the main dish was very good. They good do a little better on the first two course or just limit it to one first course and do it better,"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Second time eating here in two weeks, Service is divine. Wine list and selection can't be beat. Food was spectacular. Lamb chops prepared and presented well fish was fresh and well prepared."

  • "Last minute reservation for 10 made 48 hrs in advance. Got a confirmation call several hours ahead of time. They put some simple "Happy Birthday" confetti on the table even! Simple, but nice touch. Our servers were outstanding and very attentive. All the dishes arrived within moments of each other and were hot and tastefully presented. The white linen table cloths and candlelight made for a warm and elegant ambiance. We ended with a lovely dessert sampler with candles for the birthday girl, provided by the restaurant. Overall great experience!"

  • "Chardonnay offers a great dining experience in Palm Beach Gardens. One would never expect to find such a wonderful restaurant in a strip mall. The owners have created a three level restaurant with a cozy ambiance. I had the four course dinner on the summer menu. It was superb. My wife had the Lobster and scallops offering. It was even better. We love this place. It's easy to get a reservation in the summer but figure on a week's notice in the winter season when all the snowbirds arrive."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Cafe Chardonnay always has exciting new specials as well as regular items we love. They feature fresh fish, fresh vegetables and desserts are yummy, especially the flourless chocolate tort. Waiters are efficient but not annoying and the atmosphere is always busy and alive."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The four-course menu for Father's Day was very good, although the portions were on the small side (one wonders if they were smaller because they were part of the prix fixe menu). My wife said her rack of lamb was excellent and I agreed, whereas my swordfish dish was kind of dry and less raveworthy than the swordfish I'd had there the previous Sunday (I ate it without complaint, however). Nevertheless, the meal overall was well worth the cost and the wait staff and ambiance were very good indeed. Cafe Chardonnay continues to be an outstanding place to truly dine, especially in a time where faster and faster food is virtually slung at you at purportedly non-fast-food restaurants. Keep up the good work!"

  • "We have been to Cafe Chardonnay many times, but felt this time our server was not very attentive and the food quality has slipped. In decided if we will rush back."

  • "As usual, the food here was very good to excellent. The watermelon salad was nicely balanced and perfectly dressed. The veal chop was generous in size, perfectly cooked and very tender. It was also delicious. The service was attentive and professional."

  • "As always, Café Chardonnay delivers! The service is one of the best in the county. Flawless. The food is fabulous. Great choices, for everyone. We loved our entrees. Braised shortribs for my husband, macadamia crusted yellow tail snapper for me, and duck a l'orange for my mum-in-law. All executed to perfection. The chocolate almond torte was decadent. This will always be a great place for special occasions. "

  • "This restaurant has, for years, been voted the best restaurant around. I completely agree. The menu is fantastic and the wine list will please anyone. I have never had a bad meal here. If you want to sit at the bar and eat, you will get the same quality and service as if you had the best table in the place. Would absolutely recommend that you make reservations as it is very popular. It is a perfect spot for a special occasion, or just a Tuesday night. You can't go wrong here."
