    I ordered dover sole. It came luke warm as well as another guest. The salad dressing was awful. Great service but I would never go back the food is just ok. It has lost it's reputation as Taboo. Not the same except for great staff. After making reservation I was called late in the day to say dinning room was closed and would I like to be seated in side room or outside. When I asked about outside they said it would be taken on request. A bit arrogant. Although I was disappointed with the dover sole and they were happy to bring me a pasta dish that was also not up to my standards. Beautiful setting and great service and do not mind the price but the food is poor

    Renato's has been one of our favorites for 20 years. We were surprised that no one informed us when we brought a bottle of wine with us that they had recently raised their corking fee to 40.00. Then they served our expensive Barolo in white wine glasses when we could see the table next to us had red wine glasses with the wine they purchased at the restaurant. The food was good but my husbands pasta was served with a lot of sauce and not much pasta, also unusual. Lastly I notified them that we were celebrating our 20th anniversary when they confirmed the reservation which was never acknowledged. Pretty sure we won't be driving 40 miles to eat their again anytime soon. The Restaurant is under renovation.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/9/2014
    The superb service was the first thing my girlfriend and I noticed upon arriving at the entrance to Renato's. After our seating we were both breathless as we glanced around the almost mystical outdoor seating area. A slight ocean breeze would drift over the rooftop and into the atrium-like seating area making the dim candle-lit environment feel fresh. After enjoying the beautiful quiet our waiter brought us our menus and we were both blown away by the selection. I would recommend Renato's to anyone or any group of people interested in experiencing a meal at a restaurant that truly respects its guests. Renato's has kept and perfected a certain class that many restaurants have lost over the ages and as such it is one of my absolute favorites.

    We took our sister here for 70 the birthday, no disappointments here! Service was excellent, food delicious. The crab cake starter was amazing, no filler. The entree I had was veal, not as tender as some I've had but still very good. The dessert was chocolate cake, melt in your mouth delish! I would definitely recommend to friends. I loved the relaxed atmosphere, no rush to make you leave, very attentive wait staff.

    When you want to freel special, return to a gentler time, and relish the service, fabulous food, homemade sauces, breads, and pastires, go to Renatos. A gem, tucked away on Via Mizner, off Worth Ave. The penne caprese is worth travelling for. The desserts can undo a year of dieting good intentions. The chicken paillard has been pounded and shaped to fill an entire plate, and the taste is sublime. The veal is a dream come true. Can't wait to come back!!!

    Fantastic little restaurant with a throwback interior. A little too busy inside for my tastes, but outside one can breathe freely. Fantastic little private dining room looking onto the breezeway. Pricey, unless you order the prix fixe menu, which is a great value. Corkage is only allowable on one bottle, so make it a good one! It is 25$ if I remember correctly, but that will be offset by the quality of bottle you submit. The table service is second-to-none, and the staff professional and attentive. The kitchen prepares all facets of the menu with precision and you receive something that is cooked properly, plated well, and tastes amazing. It is likely you will spend near 75$ per person with tip if you are drinking steadily. It is worth it.

    The bill for two was $180 for two salads two pasta dishes, a glass of wine and a soda and coffee. The dishes were average, nothing special. Everything was very overpriced. If you order the house wine ask the price of a glass. It hovered around $20. We don't mind spending big bucks but the food, ambiance , and service should be top quality.

    Went with my husband for our anniversary. We sat outside in garden area. Wait staff were extremely attentive. Food was very good but lacked a little creative originality. We dressed up as we had plans after, littles disappointed to see people allowed in shorts and flip flops, but for the most part people were dressed nice. As a reminder the patio is much more romantic but it is Florida so remember it can be muggy or even rainy. Inside seemed a little more dressy. I will go back but maybe not for a special occasion.

    The food was absolutely amazing. In fact one of the better meals I have been eating for a long time. Extensive wine list and quite reasonable priced, not cheap but worth every $. We paid $ 400 for 4 persons incl starter & dinner & desert The service was outstanding and done by some gentlemen who had done this for ages. Recommend u all to visit this cosy restaurants at one of the most fashionable streets in the world, namely Worth Avenue in Palm a Beach

    Upon arriving, we were greeted warmly and provided a choice of seating. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. We went here for a birthday celebration, but did not mention it to the restaurant, however they must have overheard us talking, as a lovely birthday dessert with candle arrived at the end of the meal. This was my second time here, and I have not been disappointed once. I highly suggest experiencing this restaurant.

    My wife and I have dined with friends at Renato's for lunch several times over the past few years. This was our first experience visiting for dinner on the occasion of my wife's birthday. We were joined by my son and his girlfriend. The menu was terrific and offered many mouthwatering dishes. The waiter was very solicitous and informative. Ordering half portions of pastas was no problem. We all tried different things are were pleased by the quality and presentation. The wine list is extensive and broad running the gamut from inexpensive selections to pricey classics, both domestic and international. We were surprised to receive a cute birthday desert, gratis. We will continue to come back.

    We made a reservation for Friday night at 7pm, it was my husbands birthday dinner when we arrived we were given a seating choice main dining or the wine room we chose the wine room. We had dined here before but never in the wine room, excellent choice as we were the only ones in there for about 30 minutes,it was a very intimate table setting, beautiful coral roses ,wonderful courteous service , prompt but not intrusive. The food is awesome every time we eat here, this is definitely a place to come for special occasions after work,or even after shopping on worth avenue. They have a large selection of vegetarian dishes , drinks are superb and my filet was perfectly done medium!

    Have had lunch and dinner here before. Came back to celebrate a birthday with great anticipation. Reservation made through Open Table noting that a birthday was being celebrated. No acknowledgment was made of special occasion. Was stuck at a small table for 2, repeatedly had to ask for water glasses to be refilled and for additional butter. Service not attentive and very slow. Very noisy with people brushing by our table constantly. NOT the 5 star experience we have had in the past!! Have always recommended this lovely venue in the past. Will Not be doing so in the future.
