    The Pavilion Grille is a hidden gem. The place really starts to heat up after 8 with live music and a good bar scene. We come early for the food, which is quite good. The dining room is lovely, romantic and quite. the bar is in the office building's lobby and can get noisy -- so there is something for everyone. The special fixed price dinner is a steal with appetizer, entree and dessert for $22. Hamburgers also are quite wonderful.

    This is in a business center, in the center of a building (unique) your not eating inside a restaurant but in the center of the building with a bar off to the side and a dance floor and tables around it. We stayed long enough to listen to music by a DJ and Dance. Had a good time. On different evenings there are different events. Like Latin dance night. So check the night out for your preference. I like my soup and flatbread. My spouse thought the snapper was below average. We had a great waitress.

    The p;ace was almost empty except for a ballroom dancers. This place is in an office building with tables in a small room and out in the lobby. The dining room was totally empty when we got there so we sat at a table in the lobby area. We were treated to watching a dance class then a group meeting of some sort with dancing. None of this would have bothered me if the food was at acceptable. It was not. tasted like something you would get off a steam table at a lunch counter. Sorry but this one is a pass.

    The lobby and the entrance is impressive. However, the foodservice was not up to par, especially since it was Mother's Day.The food in the chafing dishes was dry and overcooked. The jazz music was very nice. The wait staff needs more training and management was not visible. This restaurant has a lot of potential if only the management took pride in their profession.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Took my wife there for her first Mother's Day brunch and it was terrible. Service was about as bad as it gets, sat ourselves!!!! No drinks offered for five minutes, no high chair for our baby brought over, I had to ask again after we first arrived, refills on coffee, water and OJ, never happened. Buffet was OK at best, we were on the tail end so things were dried out or empty. Have the buffet stocked and fresh for the entire meal, not just the first seating, or don't offer a buffet. Then to top it off, we sat for 20 minutes before our check was brought to us. This after asking for it once we finally saw a staff person to ask. Lastly, they took the liberty of adding a 20% gratuity to a buffet, manager should be embarrased.

    While the food was good, it was a buffet, so very little effort had to be made on the part of the waitress. However, even that little bit seemed to be too difficult. When we could manage to get her attention, she would bring back some of what we had asked for (silverware or drinks)but never rembered all of the order. Several times, one of us had to go to the bar to request something that had been asked for several times. also the table was never cleaned off when we we finished with dishes, I had to make several trips to take dirty dishes off the table.

    OlinecVIP
    Dined on 5/8/2010
    We come here early for dinner before going to Caldwell. That is the time The Pavillion Grill is quiet, before the music and bar scene kicks in. Although we were the only ones in the dining room part and another couple was in the bar area, service was very lax. First, do these hostesses not know what Open Table is. One said she had never heard of it, the other said, no reason to put in for a reservation as no one else is home. Once seated, they seldom came to our table and we had to flag them down for each drink, etc. Food is very good. Cocktails are strong

    Went for Valentines Day and we enjoyed the restaurant. The V-Day menu selection was good and the pricing was fair. The ambiance was good, but the music (for dancing) was a little bit older than expected. However, on the plus side, it was a smaller crowd, which allowed for a slower paced dinner, and the wait staff was not always pushing you to take the next enree. Overall for the event I would give it a "B"

    We were the only ones in the restaurant portion of this restaurant during our entire meal. I can't understand this as this is a lovely spot with wonderful food and great service. The bar is in the middle of the office building and food is also served here. Several couples were there as we were leaving. This was our second time here and we plan to go back. It is a great place to have a lovely dinner when we are going to Boca Raton's Caldwell Theatre, a live professional theater. I hope that later in the evening the Pavilion Grille gets a lot of customers because it is a real gem.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    I must tell you how disappointed I was. When we arrived, everything was quite lovely. Our dinner was very, very good. The Sensations began to sing, and we had a dance. Upon leaving the dance floor, it seemed everything changed. Very weird people were arriving, which changed the entire atmosphere. A man dressed as a woman sat right next to me, and others were in the room as well. It became a meat market place. It became unbearable, and we left, which entirely spoiled our evening, I'm so sorry to say. Sorry, but I will not be back.

We were looking forward to sending our members down to your venue as it is so close and you have terrific entertainment. We would come back to hear music and have a drink or two.

    What a little find. We are always looking for a restaurant near the Caldwell Theater in Boca Raton. We have passed by this many times and not known it was there as it is "hidden" from the street in the lobby of an office building. Food was good and quite inexpensive, service was very very good and there was some activity at the bar that makes me think it would be worth coming back just for the cocktails, and music. We would definitely come back again. Very pleased to have found this spot.

    This was not as advertised. We were required to give a $10 @ cover charge as we entered and then was sitted in the lobby of an office building behind a band. When we asked to be moved into the resturant we were told that it was reserved for a private party. The menu was very limited and the people were rude. We requested our $10 @ cover returned and left.

My husband didn't rate his hamburger very high, probably on a scale of 1 to 10, it was a 6 or 7. It was served on what appeared to be a plain old Wonder Bun which was a major turn off since the hamburger cost $12.00. The Iron Skillet was served to perfection. The glaze and all the trimmings were delicious. Both meals were served fresh and hot. A must is try a salad with the Balsamic dressing - delicious!!!!! We also tried the chocolate bread pudding for dessert. It was delicious!

    This could possibly be the worst restaurant experience I have had at a place that I made a reservation through Opentable.com. The service was horrible. Their excuse, "I large party of 21 was in for a fundraiser, and the kitchen is trying to push their meals out." This was planned, so they should have had adequate staff to help the 2 or 3 other tables they had in the dinning room. They were out of 2 dishes at 7:30pm on a Sat night. On top of the service being horrible, the food was bland and uneventful. After talking to the table next to me, they were having the exact same experience. I don't ever see myself going back to this restaurant.
