Diner Reviews
  • " It was another very nice dinner in friendly atmosphere. In spite of being very busy that night, service was attentive and quite fast. Tandoori chicken dish sounded like nothing extraordinary but it was, and so was black grouper on special."

  • "Had heard what a wonderful restaurant it is. Receptionists were preoccupied chatting among themselves to acknowledge our arrival. Outdoor dining is virtually in the parking lot. Inside of the restaurant is dark and unappealing. Food is less than average: fish was covered with some sort of creamy glop and reclining on gloppy risotto. Best part was that we had a relatively quiet table in the corner. Did not live up to expectations. "

  • "Finally, a Cesar salad with a decent amount of garlic!! Consistently excellent, this restaurant never disappoints. Although the wine list needs more frequent updating. My husband hates to order a wine and get a newer year than the one stated on the wine list and that did happen this time. However, he likes to order the veal scaloppine and they brought more because his original dish didn't look like it had a proper serving, and based upon a previous visits' order, it didn't. So they rectified it on their own which was great. The strip steak was generous and delicious, cooked perfectly. And the mahi special was also delicious. Again, Cafe Chardonnay is always consistent. Apple pie and creme brulee were also excellent!"

  • "We have not been here in a few years and we are not sure why because it was absolutely outstanding. Perhaps the fact that its tucked into a corner near a dry cleaners and UPS store just makes it as not so appealing when we think of where to go, but CC is fantastic in all respects! The menu is tremendous. Probably in the top 5 of any menus I have ever seen. Great service, exceptional quality food. Be particular about where to sit. With so many levels, it can get noisey and heavily trafficked."

  • "For the third time I have been to this restaurant I have found the same situation. My elderly father always wants to come here. The food is good, yet the wait staff is a challenge. Not once during our meal did anyone stop and ask if we wanted refills on our ice teas. Or more bread--which my father always wants/ When we were done with the meal--it took 10 min to get our waitress back to the table. We asked for dessert to go and a check. After 15 minutes of no one stopping I got up to get the attention of a waiter standing in the room and ask for the check. Another 10 minutes pass. The waiter said she was sorry but was very busy. While the food is good the service is not worth it. They gave us the dessert, I would have paid --for service."

  • "Wonderful menu selection and everything was beautifully presented and prepared. Outdoor dining is a little noisy but too pretty out to miss the evening. Will definitely come back."

  • "We were there to celebrate a birthday on a Sunday evening. One guests' entree was a major disappointment for her. Two things I found quite annoying: crossing over a guest to serve someone else. What happened to serving from the right and removing plates, etc., from the left? I highly resented being presented a check when Desserts were being served and then coming back to the table almost immediately to see if a credit card was there to put the charge through. Again, this was a Sunday evening. There were empty tables by the time our desserts were served and didn't feel that a, 'rush act,' was called for. The chef/ owner needs to remind his wait/bus staff that he runs a fine dining establishment. Not an Outback or Carabbas."

  • "When the reservation was made, I had requested a certain section of the restaurant and they accommodated me. Our server, Linda, could not have been more knowledgeable and patient with us as we were savoring the evening. My husband loves a good discussion of wines which he found with Linda. My lump crab meat and shrimp starter served with two different sauces were fresh and fabulous. I chose the Chilean Sea bass which was perfectly moist and delicious. Husband's beet salad was perfectly presented and dressed, followed by their skirt steak entree- tender and cooked to his request. We love Cafe Chardonnay and try to dine there whenever we are in town."

  • "Another pleasant dinning on our return! Veal medallions (with mushrooms, spinach and gnocci) were superb, however octopus on special was a little "overmarinated" and had no desired texture, just "mushi". Pinot Noir from Oregon, Wildwood, was excellent!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Once in a while you find a restaurant where you return over and over. Cafe Chardonnay is our "find". We have always enjoyed every meal and like to try different entrees whenever we go. The service is outstanding and the wine list is carefully created by Brian, the leading sommelier in the county. A real neighborhood gem!"

  • "We had a wonderful time in the "birthday loft" at Cafe Chardonnay. The table was decorated with "Happy Birthday" confetti, and the wait staff was very attentive. The food was excellent-- from the Oysters Rockefeller to the delicious steaks and fine wine. The reservation system worked perfectly-- we were seated the moment we walked in."

  • "My wife and I were looking forward to celebrating a special occasion at Café Chardonnay. Our son recommended it. We were seated very quickly upon arrival. The reception area was very crowded. Our table had some "Birthday Glitter" sprinkled on the tablecloth--nice touch! The food and service absolutely met our expectation. Our server, Tom, was truly outstanding. The food preparation was well above average. The portion size, for the pricing, was not overly generous but acceptable. The tables are tightly packed in and too close to each other to allow for private, quiet conversation. The noise level is very loud. Even the wait staff had to squeeze around the chairs to get to the diners. This takes a lot away from the overall ambience."

  • "Went to Chardonnay for my wife's birthday. place was busy and packed. our reservation was honored with no wait. Service was perfect. perfect. We had Scallops and seafood salad for appetizers. They were delicious. presented with real eye appeal and great taste. Flounder special with artichokes was fantantic. Tasted great. Macadamia crusted yellowtail is a winner. Coffee was delicious as well. Great wine list try the Duckhorn Chardonnay. Compliments to the owner's who were on the floor and making sure all was done to the highest standard."

  • "We visit Cafe Chardnnay several times a season and always find the food to be excellent. This past vist on March 21, we had reservations for 4 at 7:45. We lingered too long over cocktails at home and did not arrive until 8:05 but our table was waiting despite the fact that the resauarant was busy. Service is usually warm and professional, although our waiter this past evening was efficient but not engaged. Also we were seated upstairs which is less atmospheric (although quieter) than downstairs. Overall, you can't go wrong with Cafe Chardonnay for a slightly upscale dinner experience."

  • "This fine eatery has been open for many many years and deservedly so. It is consistently a wonderful dining experience. The staff is always well trained and the food is always very good. In fact, this restaurant continues to just get better and better. It is in a convenient location, but even if it weren't it would be well worth the drive. Some menu items have remained over the years which is quite nice, but there are always new and inventive selections to choose from. The wine selection is always diverse and therefore appealing to a wide variety of palates."

  • "The quality of the food was average and the prices were very high. he meal was let down by the service. Our bottle of Sparkling Water was put in a wine cooler two tables away. The server reached over during the meal to take away an empty plate; there was plenty of room to do this from the appropriate side. Starter plates were not taken away before the main dishes arrived - dreadful. Will not return"

  • "Café Chardonnay is one of the best restaurants in Palm Beach Gardens. I have been there several times with friends during the past four weeks and not one of us has been disappointed with the quality of the food. As a matter of fact, several of my guests from New York City, compared this restaurant to some of the finer ones back home. Prices are higher than the other restaurants in this area, but if one wants to impress guests or family with fine dining this is the place to go."
