We have intended to have dinner at this Pineapple Grove restaurant for some time. We went with our family expecting to have a nice time. The service and the ambiance were good. However, Three of us ordered a fish dish for the main course. Poor idea! Each of us was disappointed. I do not believe that they would serve such poorly prepared fish. Even the hamburger was over cooked. Elie, the owner, should get a new chef immediately or he will lose business. There are too many choices with better food preparation.

Bistro 241 is rough around the edges: coarse, but nice wait staff; food good; ambiance needs warmth; the tables look like state park cafeteria stock; when we called to ask their address's cross street, the man who answered the phone didn't know and didnt know the address(!); and the bartender needs charm school. He verbally accosted us when my mother ordered a Ketel One martini on the rocks! He told us gruffly that he only shakes martinis, that a martini on the rocks doesn't exist--it is then vodka on he rocks! He was adamant and in our face. Maybe he thought he was Robert deNiro in The Untouchables....Having said all this, the mussels were the best I've had and the grilled avocado a nice starter to split. My husband's chicken was dry and ordinary. He asked for oil for his caprese salad and received a small ketchup-style metal cup, after being told it already had a balsamic reduction underneath -- about a tablespoon's worth. Overall, we felt we were in a Woody Allen film or a Seinfeld episode: so, an amusing evening! We wouldn't recommend Bistro 241, but if you find yourself there, as we did, sit , relax and enjoy the show.

We have eaten there several times, mostly with our out of town friends.
no matter what we all select, it is uniquely made, beautifully presented
and always delicious. The service is friendly and professional. It has become
our favorite place to celebrate or just to get a great meal.

Used Open Table to find a reservation somewhere new for Valentines. Bistro was terrific. We were seated quickly and made to feel quite welcome. The owner (we believe) paid our table plenty of attention and our waiter was good as well. Drinks were excellent. The meal was very well paced. The food was perfect. We coveted every other diners dinner as well as everything coming out of the kitchen looked amazing. Don't hesitate to try this off-Atlantic gem.

Three of us ate dinner before the theater. I ordered the scallops on risotto and a beet salad. Both very good though only the scallops in the order. My friend's medium rare burger came medium well, a big disappointment. The chicken was tasty but the portion was small. All in all, inconsistent food, nice ambiance, service was attentive.

This was our first time to dinner in Delray, so we didn't know where to go. We decided to give Bistro 241 a shot based on its reviews, and we're so glad we did! The food was outstanding - we shared a bolognese pasta as an appetizer - it was outstanding...and enough for four people. We each had a different dish (chicken, seafood linguine, the special fish, and a veal), and all four of us were thrilled with our respective choices. The highlight of the evening was our server, Luiza. She was helpful answering all of our questions, incredibly responsive, and she helped to make the evening fun. I highly recommend Bistro 241!

Sat night. Arrived on time, seated and waited over an our hour for a glass of water because the venue ran out of glasses. Maybe the food is good. But, we never tasted a dish because nothing was served. I mean nothing. We left after 1.5 hours of nothing. I would never ever go back. Completely understaffed, overwhelmed. The manager never came round to apologize. Terrible experience.

Four of us for dinner. No problems reserving a table at six on a Friday night online. Convenient, warm and embracing reception, talented and attentive waitress, fantastic food, fresh and gourmet-level, of moderate proportions. Can be pricey if you order a decent wine but well worth it considering the overall experience.

The food is very good. Could be excellent with a little additional work. Operationally the overall aspects need a lot of work. The waitress was very pleasant and tried to be helpful. She was unfamiliar with types of Liquor carried at the bar. The first round of drinks were a very weak pour of liquor resulting in us ordering wine. In addition the lack of busing the tables in a timely fashion. When We ordered a bottle of white wine and were informed they only had it warm and needed to be chilled. It was on a box next to the men's room. They have potential however to succeed they need to get it together.

The food is very good and presented well, the Achilles heal is the service which is sub-par. Numerous times we had to flag down the waiter or manager, the order (delivered food) was incorrect and overall you felt like they were understaffed. It is a shame, given proper management this could be a great place. It was obvious that others feel the same way as the place was about half full inside and empty on the terrace whereas the restaurant across the street was packed - on New Years Eve no less. Lots of other choices nearby - I do not plan to return

Food was good but nothing exceptional. On the cauliflower steak, the sauce was hidden under the salad . The shrimp/spaghetti with lemon sauce was really a small serving. I expected more from such a highly ranked restaurant. But the bill was certainly high. Oh yes, the music was much too loud - especially for a restaurant with such hard surfaces. We had to speak really loud to hear each other.

My dinner partners had decent food, but I ordered a "cauliflower steak" that I was told was GRILLED. I've seen, cooked and been served grilled veggies. ALL of them show some signs of grill marks and charring. I was served a wedge (not a "steak") of steamed cauliflower and then told it had been lightly grilled. Uh, NO it wasn't. Sure, they took it off the bill when I sent it back, but don't lie to me, especially when there was other grilled food on my table that showed clear grill markings. Plenty of other places in Delray to dine! Skip this one.

Bistro 241 is a not your typical Delray packed touristy restaurant. The food is fantastic! The service is superb. The staff is extremely friendly. The wine was exceptional...had a special on Stag's Leap that was better than you could find in a wine shop! Had friends in from out of town and we were looking for someplace different that we had never been to before! They were as thrilled as we were! Can't wait to go back!

Ordered the beet salad which was pretty good. It could have used a little more "stuff" in it--there was lots and lots of arugula. It was dressed nicely, though. I ordered the mussels appetizer as my dinner and they were just ok. I found them to be very small and the broth to be a bit salty--could have used more garlic. They bring grilled pita and a dipping oil to the table, but the pita was pretty burned and I had trouble tasting any of the herbs in the dipping sauce. The best part of the meal was the chocolate lava cake for dessert--it was decadently rich, but good. So many other restaurants in the area to choose from, I doubt we'll go back. Server was great, though.

The chef outdoes himself in making absolutely perfect appetizers, soup, dinners and desserts. This is definitely a Delray Beach "gem" - a restaurant to be placed at the top of your dining list.

We found this restaurant through OpenTable and looked at the menu. The menu was refined and you could tell thought went into creating the menu. Since this restaurant is not on Atlantic Ave in Delray, it is easy to miss or to pass over. But it is well worth your trip off the main drag.

We had Luiza as our waitress and she was nice and friendly. Food was delivered in a timely manner and matched the refined elegance of the menu. We were even paid a visit by the owner, twice, to check on us and how we were doing. He was very nice and seemed to genuinely care about our experience and how we heard about the place.

My wife ordered the scallops and I ordered the Rigatoni. Both were excellent. Luiza recommended the desert, which was a dark chocolate lava cake. This was such a decadent desert that truly brought the experience home.

While some may find the food pricey, it is well worth it with the quality of the dishes. I just wish I could have tried more of the menu.

We will definitely be back the next time we are down there to try other items on the menu. And if you are looking for the hottest new restaurant in Delray, then check this place out. You won't be disappointed!

Had a hard time finding the place...thought it was closer to the action of downtown Delray. However, once we did find it, we were warmly welcomed and seated. Everything from beginning to end was superb. The wait staff and the owner were doting and accommodating. We tried the snapper ceviche, which was probably the best we have had. We ordered a skirt steak along with another appetizer. Both fantastic. I would most definitely return. Give it a shot...you will not be disappointed.

The owner was there and involved in the operation of the night. I like to see when the owners and chefs are so involved. They went the extra step for my friends birthday(without being asked) with a beautiful and delicious dessert. I am definitely going back!!

We visited Bistro 241 for the second time in about a month. As has been the case in the past the food was very well prepared and delicious. They were a lot busier than they had been on previous visits, and in fact they showed up as completely full on open table. A call to the restaurant confirmed that they would be able to accommodate us. The service was prompt and attentive. The specials were again the high points of the meal. I had the hogfish and it was just incredible. My wife is HOOKED on the house-made mozzarella!
