    My only complaint about Bice is that it was so dark inside that we could barely read the menu. It's a good thing that we had a few iphones with 'flashlight' apps. I brighter room next to us was completely unoccupied.

    If you aren't a regular for dinner, they make it clear that you are not worth their time. This starts from the moment you check in, to the table you are given, to the distracted, rushed wait staff. The maitre de told us he would check for a table outside which we had requested in our reservation (while looking past us), said there was none, then proceeded to seat 4 separate groups of the same size after us after kissing them hello. The waiter never once looked at us, was rushed, brusque, and unfriendly. The food is generally good. Consider this for lunch.

    “Last night I wanted to thank a friend for helping my fiancé and me by taking her to dinner at Bice.  It was my first time at your restaurant and possibly my last.  We were seated at a table outside (our request) but were near a service station.  The noise from the staff using the service station was so loud and clanking that we had a hard time enjoying our meal even after numerous polite requests that they tone it down.  The staff removed my fiance’s and my plates without regard to the fact that our guest was still eating her meal.  While the food was generally good, the staff seemed disinterested and burned out and just going through the motions.  My guest reported to me that the decaf cappuccino she ordered was, in fact, caffeinated coff

    Disappointing. Although our server was friendly and polite, the service was less than attentive, and our group of four felt neglected, having to flag down our waiter several times to get attention. Pre-dinner drink order was incorrect, and was fixed, but slowly. Food was average for the price. We will not return as there are better options on Worth Avenue, and certainly many more options in Palm Beach.

    A piece of heaven/the best of Italy/Capri in America! One of our favorite restaurants in PB AND elsewhere. Even better than the NY Bice. Great salads, pastas, and THE MOST BEAUTIFUL landscaped patio even in mixed weather because they have lovely umbrellas Feels as close to Capri as one can get...even though a little ersatz.

    My family has been going to Bice' for years. However, the staff paid little attention to our table and the food was not warm upon arrival. The staff was either talking to each other or visiting with women in the corners, out of the way. It was far too crowded as the tables were jammed very close to each other. I was sorry that I had chosen the place for our guests. Palm Beach has far too many Italien place to return to Bice.

    Bice in Orlando is one of my favorite romantic, special occassion restaurants -- in fact my husabnd and I have had Christmas dinner there for the past 4 or 5 years -- so we were excited to dine at the Palm Beach location but we were extremely disappointed. The service in Orlando is FAR superior -- not sure if Palm Beach is off of their A-game since it is 'off-season' or what but our evening was a let down. I guess we can at least say we've been, we've tried it and now we know we won't go back.

    The food was good for me, but my poor vegetarain husband was stuck with the usual rosotto, salad and veg soup. My pasta was very fresh and made to my liking (simple olive oil, basil and garlic)but rather heavy handed with the oil. Salads were very good and not overyly dressed.

    We have dined at Bice few times in the past where it was quite good and this time we found everything dropped off in total experience. We made our reservation on Opentable two weeks in advance and we were put in a large room in the back of the restaurant with no diners. We were not given a choice to dine outside or in the front of the restaurant. Then a large group showed up! I am writing this review a week later, and I am struggling to remember what we ordered except the Tomato Mozzarella salad. The tomatoes were tasteless and little basil although the cheese as good. The raw tuna (special) had a strange flavor...not as described. Our entrees were not remarkable. Our waiter did not inquire about our meal.

    I have eaten at Bice many times for lunch and the food has always been excellent. I made a reservation for a group of 5 and decided to have dinner. Expecting the food to be superb, we were all disappointed. The service was horrendous. The waiters are not professional. They speak loudly to each other in a VERY rapid Spanish, which is very disturbing during dinner. The food comes out from the kitchen way too hot, making the pastas overcooked. I personally ordered a Veal chip and asked for it pink but it came out rare. The mushroom brown sauce was so incredible salty that we all believed it to be right out of a can.
