Great food, great serviceOur server Linda was outstandingly attentive, the Irish salmon and the rack of lamb were the best we've had in ages. As expected, Cafe Chardonnay was excellent... and the friends with whom we dined (and who hadn't been there for years) were equally impressed. Keep it up!6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Father's Day TreatWe love to visit places like Cafe Chardonnay where we can expect consistently good food & service. I was happy to see a decent children's menu which is missing from most "nicer" places on Father's Day.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently wonderful!We have been going to Cafe Chardonnay for twenty years! It is consistently amazing! Since we cook very well at home, and border on gourmet, we aren't usually impressed with the food at most high-priced restaurants. Cafe Chardonnay; however, never disappoints us. We use it as our special occasion spot. In addition to the great food, the service is always excellent!
On this visit, my husband ordered the Swordfish and I ordered the skirt steak. We were both extremely pleased (and full, when we left). We will certainly visit again!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA must visitingOne of the best restaurant in South Florida, everything was perfect, from the food to the service, and the ambiance was outstanding, my wife and I really like it, this is a must visiting place.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and a great eveningWe went expecting good food and that's just what we got. We were seated quickly and earlier than our reservation at a fantastic table up some steps by the window. Not upstairs, but a separate little area. We ordered a wine from their extensive wine list and started with the shrimp and crab cocktail, which they split for us. Dinner was Lamb for me and Braised Short Ribs for my husband. Both were amazing. Lamb was cooked perfectly to my liking and the goat cheese mashed potatoes were awesome! A very nice evening with a great atmosphere.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent service and food-excellent service and food- rack of lamb and swordfish special were outstanding entrees and pear salad and crabcake were fantastic appetizers6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceLinda our server made several recommendations that were spot on.

Each dish was prepared to perfection.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect EveningWe dined with friends to celebrate my wife's birthday - - and the experience was perfect! We had requested a table in a particular location and, not only did we get that table, but it was decorated with "Happy Birthday" confetti. Jim, our waiter, was terrific - - cordial, knowledgeable, and responsive. The food was excellent. All in all, a great way to celebrate a special occasion.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the bestWe haven't been here for many years...we live in Aventura.

The food is always good and the service is excellent.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FindThe food was excellent, the service was excellent and the ambience was very good too. This was the first time we were there and we sat up stairs which was great having a view to downstairs. Kind of felt like you were in your own private room. The name suggests a French restaurant, but it's not. Since we were celebrating my wife's birthday we wanted a special place and Cafe Chardonnay was. When we want a little higher end restaurant we will certainly consider this one again.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed!As usual, we had a great time at Cafe Chardonnay ... excellent food, great service. Nice to have a local restaurant that never disappoints.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a special occasionThis was a special occasion dinner for our family and we had an AMAZING dinner.

The wine list is great and our meals prepared well. I Highly recommned this restaurant for a special occasion.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWine 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 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 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.
