    Malcom's - The Art of Food, despite the pretentious name, is a lovely room in the Omphoy Hotel. The night we dined at the start of the "off season" it was very quiet. The view, over the beach to the Atlantic was tranquil and calming and that all worked together with the low-key space and the music. Our entrees were very nice. The rack of lamb with a chickpea cannoli was imaginative and perfectly cooked. The veal loin was also delicious, although the bacon wrapping may have obscured the delicate flavor of the veal a bit much. Overall, we had a very nice meal and the service as excellent throughout. Compared with the prices of many of the places in Palm Beach proper, this is worth a drive down the beach for its lovely setting and fine food.

    A wonderful diversified menu with an amazing view.Malcolm's offers fine dining which will not empty your wallet.I had a strip steak and my wife enjoyed a 2 1/2 pound lobster perfectly prepared and removed from it's shell.For an appetizer I had the lobster risotto and my wife enjoyed crab stufffed avocado which were both recommended by our attentive waiter.Both made our mouths water!! We finished with the Creme Brulee the Kit Kat Bar(chocolate cake treat),Our service was perfect and the lovely ambiance of the restaurant will make you look forward to your next meal.

    Malcolm's represents one of the finest restaurants in the Palm beaches and our meal was outstanding. A few things I might note. Malcolm's would do better to always serve their basket of excellent rolls. The small loaf of wheat bread we were served was disappointing. We also missed the unusual,interesting amuse Bouche. The only disappointing part of the meal was dessert. The pecan sundae could not compare to the quality and ingenuity of the rest of the meal. The dessert consisted of pecans swimming in a chocolate sauce and served with a less than premium ice cream. Work needs to be done on it. I would also lobby for the return of individual French press coffee device. To me this represents the fitting touch to a great meal.

    Fantastic view of the ocean, superb food and... we could not wish for anything better on my husband's Birthday!! Grilled octopus was great, local fish Cobia was delicious and my lion of lamb could not be any better! Surprisingly, the restaurant seemed to have only a few customers...( except for a wedding next door). We truly enjoyed everything! A definite "come back" for us.

    I have eaten at Malcoms before but this time was very dissapointing.The wine pours were on the small side especially in the beginning.The food came out very quickly, so we couldn't enjoy.I asked the server to slow down the food and he said that as the restaurant was getting busy that wasn't a possibility.To me that means everyone else is more important.I never saw a menu when i signed up for this event, but when i spoke to the chef he said it was a set menu viewable when purchasing on line.I thought the chef would choose menu items or make up new items to serve us based on what was fresh etc. This was just a narrowed down menu and the choices weren't great. The chicken veloute wasn't great, we didn't like the scallops or the short ribs.

    Liked the crab cake a lot. Lobster risotto was said to be great by the waiter and on line posts but there was no lobster in it , the flavor was bland,and the rice was slightly overcooked-possibly just an off night. Cobia was good. Diver scallops had flavor(many scallops do not). Nantucket bay scallops were raw but the menu did not state this and I have had much sweeter but they were ok. Poached lobster was good. Old school ceasar was pretty good. Burrata was flavorful but not as good as Butrata from Puglia. Room was cold physically and psychologically. Not stellar but one of the best choices in town, this is not NYC. Cafe Boulud was slightly better the night before and Taboo was also good.

    We both had Rack of Lamb. Waiter did not ask how we wanted it prepared, so I suggested we wanted medium rare. My wife's lamb was overcooked which was pointed out to Maitre D. He offered to have the meal redone which we declined. My salad was missing avocado, which was shown on the menu. This was pointed out to the waiter, who said he would look into it, but never came back. My Expresso coffee was served in a cappuccino cup. Waiter's experience did not seem to be at the level, expected to see in a fine dining restaurant.

    The atmosphere was perfect for a romantic Valentine's Day. As foodies, my girlfriend and I had the perfect evening. We started downstairs having a cocktail in the sophisticated bar area and playing billiards.(No it's not a pool hall)Our table was waiting for us up stairs when we where ready to dine. By my request, they decanter-ed a bottle of wine I brought and was breathing at the table. We had the special 5 course menu, small tastings of delicate and delightful dishes. It's not for someone who likes to stuff themselves and roll out the place. I look forward to returning again soon and ordering from the regular menu to compare the presentations and sizes of the dish. Overall, 5 stars!

    This was our first time dining at Malcolm’s. The Bouillabaisse was outstanding. The rest of our meal was only fair. Beware that the kitchen is rigid and will not attempt to make any kind of substitution I found out that the shaved raw vegetable salad was premade and could not be ordered without beets or just have only the greens. We arrived on a Friday night for an 8 Pm reservation and the restaurant was barely half full. None of the empty tables were ever occupied. One of our guests wanted to order fish (none of the fish that night was local). When we were informed that the salmon selection had been sold out, she selected the halibut which is described on the menu with a curry sauce. The request was made with something other than cu

    We love dining at Malcoms when we are in Palm Beach. From the minute you walk into the Omphoy hotel you feel an energetic vibe. The hotel and restaurant have a contemporary feel and we love to sit at a table in front of the tall glass windows. The food always has an interesting twist, try the shrimp appetizer with frozen bits that explode in your mouth. The waiters are attentive and look to accomodate your wishes. This time upon leaving they handed us a goodie bag with mini coffee cake muffins and a bag of great smelling coffee beans for the next morning. I only wish the beans were ground since we didn't have a coffee grinder in the morning! A nice touch and the muffins were delicious enough to make you remember your dinner the night before

Chef Michael put together an unbelievable menu, that had more than anybody expected with beautiful presentations and the staff is obviously very well educated on all the items as they were able to answer any of the several qustions that came from our guests.

    We quite possibly had the worst meal and wine EVER at Malcolm's. We travel extensively all over the world and decided on Malcolm's because we were staying at the Omphoy for our Anniversary weekend. My husband and I started with the Caesar Salad (tasteless). My husband then had the beef filet. He said it was one of the worst tasting cuts he had ever eaten and left most of it on his plate. I had the Ahi and it was fair at best. The basel fava bean mixture underneath it was tasteless and the presentation would have done better at Appleby's. We spent $400.00 on a Super Tuscan that was the worst Super Tuscan we have ever tasted. The view was nice. Service was fine. Maybe because of the "off season" they choose lesser food quality.
