Wine and DineMy wife and I went for our Anniversary, unfortunately for her, she doesn't eat a lot of red meat or seafood, and there were a lot of those options on the menu. Good for her, the salads, and appetizers were great. The wine list is extensive, and being that I'm not picky, there were lots of options. The price of the meal was very expensive, but a great choice.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMfine diningCafe Chardonnay offers "FINE DINING" not just eating,5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMKeeps On GivingI have been going to Café Chardonnay for many years and in that timeframe the quality of food and service has never diminished. To be fair, I think the décor is getting a bit "long in the tooth", but that is more than made up for by the overall value, presentation, creativity and execution. I recommend it to all my friends. I have never had anyone say they were disappointed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe Chardonnay is a MUSTCafe Chardonnay is a MUST stop for me when I travel to Florida. Never had a bad meal here.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery relaxing dinner spot,Very relaxing dinner spot, great wine and food selection. Will return in the future, hope sooner than later, as I'm 50 miles away and must pass 2,000 other restaurants to get there.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AM20 years ago we found this20 years ago we found this great restaurant and it gets better on each visit. Our shrimp and prosciutto appetizer and wedge salad was great. Veal chop and grouper entrees were outstanding as was the Linzea tart. Never disapointed. It is 30 mile round trip from Boca Raton and we make it 2 to 3 times a month.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAM ALWAYS AMAZEDWe have frequented Cafe Chardonnay for many years. Sunday evening's dining experience only reaffirmed AGAIN, just how incredible the food and service are. I had the Wild Mushroom strudel-a delightful appetizer-I should've asked for a side of the Fonduta for more dipping!!! The Black Grouper/shrimp risotto special was absolutely divine!!! My husband had the Rigatoni bolognese and Short ribs-he CLEANED HIS PLATE-We were supposed to "share". I left a good portion of my dinner because I was full. One of the many attentive servers asked if I would like to take it home and i declined. BIG MISTAKE!! I thought about that dish all day yesterday. Service was impeccable-professional, very pleasant-a tribute to the owner/manager.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMthey did not honor a timelythey did not honor a timely reservation this evening and kept us waiting 45 minutes. The bar was crowded and there is no where to sit. They were out of martini glasses too! Best to go in the summer when they offer their lower priced menu.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMService and foodThis was our second time to Cafe Chardonnay, and the service was just as excellent this time around. The food was just as delicious this time as well.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining fare with fair pricesWe found the service to be spot-on, the staff was polite and attentive, yet not overbearing in their service. Wine list was pricey, but there were a lot of wines by the glass and half-bottle. Food was inventive, fresh and the ingredients were front and center, nothing overwhelmed by excessive cheeses, spices or sauces. Clearly there's a good reason Cafe Chardonnay has been around so long. It's not inexpensive dining, but at this level, with these ingredients and this service, it shouldn't be.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, cafe ChardonnayAs always, cafe Chardonnay continues to be one of the best restaurants in our area. It is always consistent and we all enjoyed ourselves .it was a wonderful ladies night out.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was good exceptEverything was good except for the table right next to the door that leads to the patio/parking lot dining area - too high traffic and exposed to be comfortable.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place..Had another wonderful meal at the Chardonnay Café, Perfect service. Hostess was generous in allowing to take an extra 30 minutes at the bar after out reservation time. Bartender George very personable.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMYour noise rating should haveYour noise rating should have a choice for "loud" versus "energetic" as there is a difference, and Chardonnay is loud.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice time. Around 7pmVery nice time. Around 7pm started to get a little louder due to more people arriving.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA Night to RememberWe made dinner reservations online which was convenient, easy and fast and noted in our reservation that it was our Anniversary. Upon arrival, we were escorted to our table in the loft which overlooked the entire dining room below. To our surprise, the table was laden with "Happy Anniversary" décor - very nice. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous and the food was incredible. Café Chardonnay made our 17th Anniversary a night to remember. We'll return again soon.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was good OneEverything was good One of my favorite restaurants4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. ExcellentExcellent food.

They had everything from breakfast delights to gourmet seafood options. The service was very good. The food was even better, presentation and taste were out of this world. Prices are not bad with most expensive entree being 26 dollars I believe. I would highly recommend this place!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways an exceptional dinngAlways an exceptional dinng experience, from the bar to the table.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinner,We had a wonderful dinner, excellent service and a lovely evening at Cafe Chardonnay!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe Chardonnay is consistentlyCafe Chardonnay is consistently great.

You can count on quality meals in a well decorated atmosphere. Service is good, though not world class.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall amazingThe service and the food were amazing as always! However there was a large bar crowd that evening and the bar guests kept bumping into our booth which was somewhat annoying.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmong the BestNo doubt Cafe Chardonnay ranks in the top 10 resstaurants in Palm Beach County, and may well be number one as to its wine selection. There just is nothing to criticize. from the excellent front of the house to the backservers who are present when you need something. The Oysters Rockefeller are a destination dish (this coming from one who spent his college years and many trips since in New Orleans), and the foie gras is a treat not enough people sample. Entrees? It is hard to make a selction, but do look at the specials - the Bison was succulent and the lamb amazing.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYUMMY!I had not eaten at this restaurant for years - and it remains a highlight on the local dining scene! I wish we still lived close enough to eat here often. The service was terrific - not too fast or too slow - and the duck was to die for! And be sure to leave room for carrot cake!1/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
