Couldn't have been better, especially for a lingering lunch with two friends who had much to talk about. From the welcome when we entered the restaurant to the careful description of some off-menu items to the pace of service, the Gazebo was an oasis in an otherwise frenetic lifestyle. This restaurant is calm; the food (pasta primavera) was wonderful and it's definitely high on my radar screen. Love it for dinner; love it for lunch.

Several people told me this is THE place in Boca to go for Dover sole, my husband's favorite. So I arranged a birthday dinner for him there. The decor is dated, stuffy, and pretentious, and the exterior of the restaurant leaves much to be desired. (And the ladies room is so far below the dining room's level of "elegance," I was shocked.) The Dover sole was adequate but far from the best we've ever had. The rest of the food was good but, given the prices and attitude, should have been spectacular.

I have been going to Kathy’s Gazebo for over 30 years. The seafood crapes and crabmeat stuffed artichoke hearts are two of my favorites. With great service and wonderful food Kathy’s gazebo never disappoints.

A wonderful “Ladies Luncheon Out” group of 8~ was had last week at Kathy’s Gazebo Cafe. I love the environment where table linens and wall booths are covered in soft pink colors, flowers abound ~making it a perfect ladies lunch as well as appropriate and comfortable and would be a hit for a business person hosting a “power lunch”.

I ordered the Caesar Salad and had Chef top it with a piece of salmon- grilled to perfection ~ very tender and fresh. I would return for this dish and would return for lunch.

The servers and staff are very friendly and want to please. They do not hurry you and I felt inclined to linger over a double expresso! Peach Melba is on the menu— hard to find in today’s restaurant industry- and would definitely order on next visit for sure!

Kathy’s Gazebo Cafe is now on my “go to” list for solo lunch and for any group functions.
Thank you— will return!

Being we are both vegetarians with food allergies, spoke to waiter before ordering and decided to order just the four sides of vegetables (which we were told would be sautéed) on the menu. Our meals came out plated with only 3 vegetables and rice (which we could not have because it was prepared with chicken stock). They brought it back to the kitchen and returned with 4 vegetables plated . The preparation of 2 of the vegetables was just steamed and unseasoned. Upon receipt of the bill, instead of being charged for 4 sides (should have been $32 ) were charged for 2 vegetable plates at $52.
In fairness ,the other 2 people we were with did not have any issues with their meals.

Loved the chandeliers, decor, & the service was excellent! We had at least 3 waiters- all very professional and attentive. For our appetizer we had the escargot. We both rated it 5 stars. For the main course, I had the duckling which was perfect- crispy & tasty. My husband had the liver which he found a little soft in texture. Even though the price was high, I will go back for a special occasion.

I eat here often. However lately the food has not been as great as I remember. The last 2 times were disappointing, the duck was not crisp there was an 1/8 to a 1/4 of an inch of fat under the skin and the cassis sauce wasn’t up to snuff. My latest swordfish chop was a bit fishier and not as moist as other times, the piece wasn’t a prime bone in succulent chop?!? I’m not sure why and the tomato accompanying sauce was also not as fresh and clean tasting as in the past. I’m very bummed out about this since I do not feel there is an abundance of fabulous foodie restaurants in the local area.

Our evening was an opportunity for two to comfortably converse at a dinner pace that was perfect. My only frown occurs with the wine steward who was both patronizing and dismissive, but since I've been there several times, I took it as an aberration in your typical gracious service. Unfortunately, though, my friend had never been and it took a while for her to accept the "attitude." Beyond that, the wine was lovely and the food perfect, as it typically is. The elegance of the dining room encourages a slower and more savored pace and I hope to return soon.
