Diner Reviews
  • "Have been several times for Sunday brunch but this was first for dinner. Hubby had the Sunday prime special which he liked; I had the yellowtail snapper. Yummy. Very nice pour of wine (approx. 8 oz). Next time I might try that colossal shrimp dish!"

  • "Their website links to open table but they don't honor the reservation you make. I had the South Pacific pancake special. They were dry and the fruit and pineapple syrup were uninspired in preparation and presentation. My companion had the French toast which was made from thin sliced challah bread and a bit dry as well. The restaurant is very popular but our selections were quite dull and rather mediocre."

  • "We took our vibrant 91 yo uncle for his birthday on June 14th. He ordered a $130 bottle of wine. When I asked if they do anything for a birthday, our waitress said yes. I asked that it just not be chocolate, as he doesn't like chocolate. She asked him if cheese cake would be ok and he said yes. She brought the cheese cakeand then the bill. They charged $10 for the cheesecake!! I told her and she said "yes, that's right!" I wish I had time to say "the why didn't you give us the menu to chose what we wanted to spend $10 on!? One would think that with a $130 bottle of wine purchased for a 91st birthday they might have comped a piece of cake!!2 strikes! But of course they have location! We just won't be back. Too bad, food was good."

  • "We took our Golden Retriever to Luna Rosa; the owner gave us a large outdoor table so the boy could stretch out. The food is quite good and the mostly Italian wine list is funky and fun. The broccoli rabe/Italian sausage appetizer is wonderful. It's hard to beat pasta and shellfish, both properly cooked. We can't wait to return."

  • "We were very disappointed. It took our waitress a very long time to come and ask what we would like to drink.the drinks took also very long to come. We ordered wine and club soda with cranberry juice. Nothing special. Again after a while they brought out the bread. Finally the waitress came and took our order. She was in a hurry. When our meals arrived two orders out of three were wrong. The bus boy changed one but we had to wait for the waitress to come and she insisted what she wrote is what was ordered. It was not. She was very dissmissive and walked away. This is not my first time at the restaurant and I was extremely embarrassed since it was my recommendation. We did tip her 20 0/0 but she did not deserve it."

  • "Luna Rosa is consistently great food. The fresh seafood is always fantastic, but the pasta bolognese is incredible. The service is always first class and the place has a nice casual vibe. This is a mandatory stop for all my visitors."

  • "I made a reservation to celebrate my birthday and my expectations were high (from reading the reviews online) and I am sorry to say I did not enjoy my night. The server did not introduce himself and left us waiting for a long time before he came to ask what we wanted to drink. Even though he had to pass right by us it was hard to get his attention to order the food. I really wanted to like this place, but I did not happen. We were left unattended for the majority of the night, the food was good, not different from a chain restaurant, just more expensive. One a positive note the server took the calamari off the tab because we could not eat because it was extremely salty."

  • "First time trying this restaurant, and not disappointed!! Brought wife here to celebrate her birthday - she loved it! Seated outside with nice view of the ocean. A little noisy street traffic, but worth it for the view and the ocean breeze. Food was very good, enjoyed a nice appetizer of fried calamari - done in a different way (with squash, zucchini and arugula) which we enjoyed very much. Entrees chosen: Rigatoni with Sunday meat "gravy" and special made pasta alla vodka with pancetta... excellent! Pistacchio gelato - homemade... terrific!! And nice friendly patrons as well... all in all, a great night. We will be trying the other great selections on the menu when we return. Thank you Gabriela for making it a great experience!"

  • "Cafe Luna Rosa never fails. We have not been there for dinner in quite some time and it was a real treat. Our meals were outstanding and the service was even better! Long term employees have an ownership interest in the restaurant and it surely shows in the service from the bus boys, runners and waiters. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Food was quite delicious, however the host was not welcoming and the waiter was pushy. He described the "specials" and made a recommendation, however, we had selected other entrees instead. He relentlessly stated that the special was "way better." I asked him if it was more expensive and he answered sarcastically, "Well of course it's more expensive!". Description on line said "panoramic view of the Atlantic. Not quite!"

  • "The entire dining experience at CLR is great time and time again. I took one of my daughters (14) before sending her off to camp and we had a fantastic time. The Ocean View, appetizer, main course and chocolate ganache dessert were perfect just like the last time and every time I dine at CLR. A Delray dining must."

  • "We had reservations on Father's Day for 5pm for 5 people. We can directly from the beach, in our coverups and shorts and sat outside. Weather was lovely, view was great and the food was terrific. Everyone was happy with their choice, had a fun waiter and enjoyed two-for-one drinks from 5-6. Great choice and we will return again!"

  • "We met old friends for a reunion recently, and were seated outside at the restaurant. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. The wines by the glass are limited, but adequate and the food was very good. A bit pricey, but an enjoyable dinner on a balmy Florida evening!"

  • "We enjoyed declicious taglitelle bolognese and the garlic olive oil spread got the bread was a nice touch. Outdoor seating was great. Problem was service. Our waiter wouldn't help us pick a glass of wine unless we were interested in the most expensive wine on the menu and just walked away. We had to beg to get pamesean cheese on our pasta. Coffee showed up at table we didn't order. It was not a busy night. While food showed up quickly waitstaff seemed to not really care ."

  • "I love Luna Rosa. If I can get passed the lines and crowds (which I do, by making reservations early-- avoiding Thur-Sat) If I have to. I enjoy going there to see the sun low in the sky btw 6-730...the FOOD IS PHENOMENAL, so that needs to help-- but I want to put attention on the romantic, authentic Delray feel I get when I am there. Surrounded by a surf shop, a sports bar - with a touch of a fancy dining place above the restaurant...its perfect. People watching is great-- seeing people laughing and enjoying life on the beach."

  • "This restaurant is a real bright spot in Delray Waterfront Dining! The chef is willing to step out of the kitchen and share his recipes with his guests....to me, that is the sign of Authentic Italian Cuisine! He was proud of his heritage and eager to share his family recipes. The rigatoni pommadoro prepared with San Marzano tomatoes packs a punch! The moist meatballs melt in your mouth, and don't disappoint! There are several broth accompanied clam appetizers, that will "wow" you! Highly recommend this fine dining Caffe and trust it will become one of your favorites!"

  • "When checking in for our reservation, the host was using a pencil and a notebook for reservations. Not the computer. That is why it took so long for us to get our points. The host was not very friendly. We were a little early and he was not amused. Once seated, our meal was good but the service was outstanding. Gabriel was her name. She made our experience very enjoyable. Ask for her every time. Upon leaving, we asked the same host if he was the manager as we wanted to tell him how great our server was and he was even more rude than at the beginning. He should not be greeting customers with that attitude. That aside, this is a good place with a great view of the ocean."

  • "We say outside in the rain and had a wonderful time. Right across from Delray Beach. We had the burrata appetizer and the "fish sticks" - both excellent. For my main I had the pasta in vodka sauce. Vodka sauce was ok - not great. Husband had the prawns and they were fantastic. The are HUGE and flavorful. My favorite part is the roasted garlic they bring at the beginning with the bread. We will be back. Overall, an excellent experience. Service was great too."

  • "My first visit will not be my last. From the incredible crusty bread served with roasted garlic and olive oil..my palate was smiling. I had the most delicious veal chop pounded thin served parmagiana style. Pasta was al dente perfect with a wonderful tomato sauce. My date had an incredible fish dish. The service was incredible and friendly. I can't wait to go back. Oh, Did I mention the open air seating and the view of the Atlantic!"

  • "We were introduced to this restaurant some years ago by our close friends. We have been smitten with it ever since. We are never disappointed. Love to be there more often but as we live in NY it's difficult to make this place our usual "hangout" so to speak. Nevertheless when we are south in the area we make a point or should I say "bee-line" to the place for their excellent food. So glad to have discovered this place as we would never have known and thanks to our dear friends."
