I am a costumer for more than 16 years. The service is excellent, the menu basically the same. The tables are too close that makes walking sometimes difficult. I would suggest to change the menu by adding different french recipes. Otherwise is an excellent establishment.

My friend and I happened to be searching for a restaurant who might serve Dover sole and did we ever found a GEM! We went there 3 times so far during our 5 day stay in boca raton ! And still have one more reservation before we head back home ! The food was exceptional it did not matter wether we tried the escargots , the country pate or the mussels as far as the entree we did not make it pass the Dover sole yet ! We had it at every occasion since it not ever possible to find on any menu [in the northern part of the east coast possibly!]mostly the whole fish flown in fresh and filleted at your table ,as far as the service we could not have been welcomed ,and overwhelmed with such attention and exquisite professionalism by Tasso, Edgar,and Christian !thank you so much for such a wonderful dining experience ! We shall definitely return and recommend KATHY’S to all our friends ,business associates and family !

We have been to Kathy's Gazebo Cafe in the past for our holiday luncheon; and it was great then; and it is just as enjoyable, now. The ambiance, food, service -- all wonderful. Makes for a special experience every time.

We have our annual Christmas get together with friends here. It’s such a great place for a special occasion dinner. The attention to detail with both the food and service is exemplary. My two personal favorite dishes are the seared foie gras appetizer and the flown in from Holland Dover sole. The wine list is top notch and the dessert selections sublime. An overall wonderful dining experience.

What a wonderful place to dine. Quiet, so its a pleasure to converse. The service is absolutely impeccable. Perhaps a little bit pricey, but isn't fine dining always? I have only been there a few times, so it's not top of mind. It really should be. The Dover Sole is a good as I have had anywhere. The wine list has many wonderful wines, priced quite reasonably.
The patrons are on the more mature side, so there should be no surprise.
I'm just so pleased there is such a wonderful restaurant in Boca. I plan to return again and again.

Dinner was delicious. Carrot cake tasted like it was made last week.
People in the restaurant were loud taking selfies, I guess I won’t go out on holidays.

Our reservation was at 8...the only negative in our entire experience, was that we felt rushed...It's nice to be served in a timely fashion, but there was certainly no seatings after us, and we could have been given a little more time to enjoy

Best food in Boca Raton! Stellar service and incredibly kind management although we do consistently tend to bring the median age of patrons down substantially we always go and enjoy every sip, bite and minute! Well Done

Although pricey, I must say that it was a great meal. I had the Escargot for an appetizer and the Seafood Crepes for my entree. I can tell you that the Crepes were perfectly done and the sauce was not overbearing. Every bite was pure heaven. I plan on going back again just for the Crepes. My friends had the Dover Sole and the Trout Amandine and said both were delicious. Service was terrific. I highly recommend this restaurant!
