    Once again, Café Chardonnay comes through. The food is reliably and consistently very good, and the tiramisu is fabulous! The service is excellent. The prices are high, so this is for special occasions. Highly recommended!

    One of my favorites whenever I visit the Palm Beach Area. I initially asked for a table downstairs, which was unavailable, and was happy to be seated upstairs away from the "energetic" noise level - ie, you had to scream to talk to anyone seated at your table. That said, the food and service make it all worth it.

    We were seated promptly with our reservation. Only we did not like the table we were seated at and asked to have a more preferred place. We were accommodated and the evening went extremely well. We were not rushed with our selections, and the meal, and time, was most enjoyable.

    Priced like the best restaurants on The Island but it's in a strip center in Palm Beach Gardens. Serivce was slow. Had to wait to order drinks, then server forgot our drink order. No valet parking. Great food but overpriced experience.

    Once again, a perfect meal. When making the reservation I mentioned it was a birthday dinner for my husband. They put Happy Birthday confetti on the table and at dessert time they came out with a delicious flourless chocolate cake with candles that I arranged for earlier in the week. Food and service were exceptional as always.

    We were on a visit from the west coast and tried to pick an outstanding restaurant for lunch. This one appeared to meet all criteria. It did not in reality. Maybe a fluke. Maybe something else. We had to finally ask if a server could be sent over. She was OK after she finally arrived. My wife and I both had seafood. Neither meal was fully cooked. I also had lobster bisque - the lobster did not meet expectations. I am so sorry to write such a review but I must report what we received. The check was less than anticipated. We made no complaints to the restaurant. The restaurant appeared to have a wonderful repeat crowd. Maybe just not our day.

    Food as always was fantastic. It took an unusual long time to get the main course and when it arrived they had missheard what I ordered. I had ordered the stone crab apetizer(which was maybe the best stone crabs I ever had) and the duck. My waiter did not hear me when I ordered the duck and when they tried to rectify they were out. To compensate they gave a food voucher for a futute visit which was very nice.

    We came back to Cafe Chardonnay egg to celebrate our 24th anniversary as we have with several others over the years. It is still excellent. Great food, great service, nice quiet romantic setting, good wine list. it's hard to think of anywhere else around here that has been so consistently good for so long. Just the perfect place for a special occasion.

    Once again, the great service and a menu that gives you so many good choices draws me back over and over. The roasted beet salad is always my favorite, along with either the Veal Chop or the Rack of Lamb. The shrimp scampi is always a winner too...choices, choices. They have the very best wine list in the Gardens so the wine bar is always filled with people who want to try Brian's latest recommendation. You won't find food like this anywhere else in PB Gardens!

    This was our first time dining at CC. We have lived in Palm Beach Gardens for over 30 years and never have tried this neighborhood gem. We went for my birthday. Very nice ambiance. However, the service was not good. We waited at least 10 minutes before our server came over. When she came over, she hastily asked if we wanted drinks. She did not even welcome us to the restaurant! This place is not cheap, so you expect to be greeted better than if you went to Outback. After our drinks came, she asked what we wanted. I asked if there was any specials, and she stated "oops, I forgot to tell you." Other than the service, the food was amazing. We LOVED the softshell crab and mushroom strudel appetizers. The entrees were amazing as well.

We ordered from the Flavor of PB menu and the escargots and bouillibase was very good. I would definitely return for a special occasion dinner or drinks and appetizers at the bar.

    best Mushroom Strudel starter in town....fabulous chicken tandoori prepared to keep juiciness and natural flavors, with couscous and apricot slivers. Do not miss the desserts. They are truly worth the splurge, and sharable by at least 4. Pleasant service, warm greeting upon arrival, fabuous bread & dip on the table for starters. We travel a good distance to get here, but so worth it!
