    Don't get me wrong when this place is good it's great. My last experience seemed to have poor service. Specifically really slow to refill drink, had to ask up to three times once. They saw us eating the crab legs and didn't bring an extra bowl or the little for like the previous 5 times I've been there. Food variety wasn't that appealing this time But that might be a matter of opinion. Either way like I said when this place is good it's a great experience.

    We were celebrating a special friend's birthday. Sundy House was the perfect spot. It was like dining in our private outside dining with tropical landscape, water features, & birds. Food and srevice excellent. My husband and I spend a weekend here as a gift from our daughter & son-in-law. Couldn't have been a more perfect gift. Plan to stay here. You won't be disappointed.

    It took forever to get attention from our server throughout and took another 20 min. to get the bill. He came back 15 minutes later and had only charged my card $29, 20 minutes later he comes back with the correct charge. As we were walking through their garden afterwards, 15 minutes later, he chases us down and states that he only ran my card for a pre-authorization and wanted to run the card again. I showed him my bank account showing that $300 was processed and if he ran it again it would hold another $300. Manager came out, took the bill to handle it. After he didn't come back, I found him 20 minutes later and he had fixed it but didn't come tell us. Go to Valet, and they had lost my car keys. There went another 20 min.

    Been going for many years and never disappoints. Still talking about the food days later. This time they seated our party to new street-side tables which was too noisy due to traffic. They accommodated us nicely under the gazebo in the gardens. In my opinion the street side seating is too far removed from the ambience of the Sundy House experience. They need to rethink this seating arrangement. I love this place!!!!

    The Sunday brunch was very good. Make sure to go with a big appetite! They have excellent mimosas and bloody mary's as well as a large array of food options. We were there for almost 2 hours just enjoying the music and the food. I would go again without a DOUBT. But as I said, make sure you go with a big appetite to get the best bite for your buck!

    We selected this restaurant to celebrate our first anniversary. At first I was a little worried as we didn't get a live person on the telephone when we were calling to make the reservation. We used opentable, where I left a note asking for a romantic setting for our anniversary. All worries were forgotten when we drove onto the property. My wife actually said "wow." The valet met us at the front and showed us in to the maître d. When told our name, she immediately wished us happy anniversary. We were seated in one of the garden settings that was the epitome of a romantic dinning experience. Our waitress also wished us a happy anniversary. The food was delicious. I ordered a-la-cart and my wife the Prix fixe. Highly recommended. Will return

    I have been here 4 or 5 times before over the last few years and everything was spectacular except for this visit which may very well be my last. I don't know what it was exactly. From the time we entered the restaurant something felt different as if the restaurant was under new management since my last visit many years ago. The building it self didn't seem as pristine a my last visits, the service was terribly sub standard from what I expected and always expect from a restaurant of this caliber. We had to ask for things twice before receiving them, all the women were served after most of the men at the table and two dishes were auctioned off by the food runner( totally unacceptable in a restaurant like this.)

    This was the nicest restaurant I have been to for a long time. It has a unique, classy outdoor jungle setting and is one of the most romantic restaurants we have experienced. They also have indoor seating in a home-like setting. A converted old house, this restaurant is a classic. It is one you will want to take your out of town guests and to meet friends and neighbors for a restaurant with a classic, upscale yet very comfortable flare. The food is great and the people are friendly. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. My wife and I were extremely pleased.

    The food was not only outstanding, but plentiful. No waiting for any dishes to refill. Our waiter started out grumpy, but lightened up as time went by. I even overheard him talking to the table next to us and he was quite sarcastic. The mimosa's didn't flow quickly - kinda had to wave them down. HOWEVER, the food and ambiance is worth any minor aggrevation.

    What a gem! We finally ventured from our neighborhood & drove to Delray to try the Sundy house. WHAT a romantic detting! There is indoor and outdoor dining and the grounds are stunning at dusk to wander hand in hand. The scallops were cooked exactly as I prefer, my husband throughly enjoyed the lamb chops, and he professed the red velvet cake to be the best ever. We will definitely return and have added the Sundy house to our "favorites" list.

    This place was highly recommended by a local. We arrived early and it seemed as though they had a lot of 1pm brunch reservations and the place was filling up. It took quite a long time to get a table and the front desk was flustered and disorganized. But they gave us champagne while we waited, and did apologize. It is a huge buffet so bring your appetite. For us the food choices were overwhelming and we did not want to eat that much, but everything was excellent and super fresh. This is clearly a really popular place in a lovely setting and filled with regulars. When the check came, the hostess had taken 20% off our bill for the waiting time. We were impressed.

    Sundy House always has a nice atmosphere and excellent service. In the past I've never ordered anything that wasn't outstanding until this time. I had the lamb chops, for $39 dollars they were sub par. My wife ordered the scollops and they were excellent. We will still go back but I will stay with the seafood side of the menu.

    Sundy house is one of the more beautiful restaurants in which I've had the pleasure to eat. The service matched the ambiance in that it was also exceptional. The food was good but not nearly as memorable - with the exception of the lemon layer cake for dessert. I'd go back for a special occasion but not just for the food.

    My husband and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We had a very enjoyable evening with delicious food, good recommendations by our server and a lovely view of their lush gardens out the window. My husband had the fish (mahi mahi) and I had lamb chops. Both of us thought the food was excellent. The desserts were heavenly. I had a wonderful trifle-type dessert made of a thin layer of cake, raspberry filling and lemon mousse. My husband had a decadent chocolate cake. After dinner we walked around the gardens before leaving. I would recommend Sundy House to everyone.

    We had been to Sundy House many years ago and enjoyed it, so when we had to pick a place for our 25th anniversary dinner, it was an easy choice. We love the beautiful tropical garden area with large fish pond. We were given a table with a great view of the gardens. My wife got the calamari for an appetizer. It was extremely good and a large enough portion for both of us. I had ordered the wedge salad, which was different from the standard wedge with blue cheese; but it was also quite good. We both ordered the Porterhouse Lamb-chops. Just outstanding! They were just over 2 inches thick and perfectly prepared. The mixed vegetable with roast potato accompaniment was prepared differently and was very good. It was a special evening.

    Sundy House is off trendy Atlantic Ave in Delray Beach, a historic old home being used as a B&B and restaurant. The Sunday brunch was excellent, with a myriad of different food stations (salads and cheese, pastas, fish and rice, eggs benedict, omelet station, carving station, etc., along with make-your-own bloody mary bar and bottomless champagne/bellini pours. It was hot and humid so we stayed inside, but the seating out in the gardens looked lovely, and would be charming on a cooler day. The brunch was expensive, not sure how the cost compares with The Breakers, but the ambiance and food were very nice.

    3couples came for Saturday brunch and we all enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Our service was wonderful and the food was outstanding. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of foods to choose from. This was our 1st experience with your Saturday brunch. I was expecting it to be more like your Sunday brunch. That brunch is never disappointing. Of course, the Saturday brunch is more affordable and lends itself to more times to visit. All in all, it was wonderful. Could you please let me know about your Christmas plans. I will have visitors and would like to treat them to your fabulous restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful time

    Beautiful, historic property that just changed owners. Let's hope they continue to "up" their game. Few diners on Friday night, enjoying the peace and quiet and the well priced 3 course summer menu. Brought our son and his fiance for her birthday, and the experience was perfect. Although there was a wedding on property, we wouldn't have know it unless the hostess had told us. Because there are multiple rooms with different character, and beautiful outdoor spaces, this would be a lovely place for a group lunch or dinner. We'll definitely be back.

    Returning to Sundy House after many years was so disappointing. The building was tired and the food was so poor. My plank salmon was dry but edible but the zucchini "fritter" was soggy and bland and the cous cous was sticky and had no flavor. My husband's dinner had truffle fries that tasted so strong he was scrubbing the flavor off his tongue later that night. Our waitress was very efficient but kept saying "Okay" to everything- a bit weird!

    So often a restaurant will build a reputation only to sit back and relax and rest on their fame. Not so with Sundy House. Their food is always exciting and innovative , and always fresh. Service is excellent with attention to detail without feeling any pressure. We actually took a break between courses to enjoy the gardens (which is a must, even if you've visited before) Not inexpensive by any means, but so worth the extra. Will definatley be back again, and again.....and again.

    I do not recommend the Saturday brunch. I have been to the Sunday brunch, it is fantastic. The Saturday brunch was a huge disappointment. There were very few items on the buffet and the only meat offering was roasted pork. I have never been to a brunch that had no bacon. I have always enjoyed this restaurant but was disappointed with the Saturday brunch. It was not what I expected by the advertisement.
