Bice - Palm Beach
Must have been crazy booking a table here on Valentine's Day evening....jammed to the rafters...doors open....A/C not very cold....a loud DIN....seating at tables with enough room for sardines...a disaster...
Nevertheless, when not a special event night, this is quite a good restaurant which I do recommend....
Food great. A couple of missteps kept it from being a 5 star:
Valet didn’t show up until near 7pm...if you’ve ever parked in palm beach you know why this is a misstep.
Young waiter had listening challenges....wrong drink and wrong meal !
Food and drinks were all delicious! Just took a while to get our table even though we had a reservation. Service was excellent from the moment we sat down.
They seemed to be rushing us.
Great food and a lovely setting. Fortunate to het a table outside because it was noisy. Still, a great eveninh
We were seated 35 minutes after our reservation after being told it would be “a few minutes”.
This is a great quality italian and has the most lively crowd.
This is one of our very favorite places to dine. The food is delicious and the ambiance is the best!!
Great food!! Wonderful service..seated right away..great evening with family
Great dinner and atmosphere. Service was A+
Everything was perfect. Will return soon.
OUTSTANDING AS ALWAYS!!!
Great food. Noisy lively atmosphere
Wow, what a meal! Dover Sole perfectly cooked and served table side. And Gluten Free Pasta with Grilled Salmon. Who could ask for anything more? A 5 Star * Meal! We will be back.
Great carpaccio !
Great food and service
As starter I ordered a fried calamari and It wasn’t fried well.
The NY steak came sliced and so was a little cold.
I’m never very happy after I’ve been to Bice. It’s very overrated. The food is average, the service is, at best, average. And now they crank up loud party music at 9:00pm! Unless you are young and on the make you won’t like it. It is a chain and it feels like a chain. It’s off my list now. And I live in Palm beach. There are just too many better restaurants in the area to waste any more time on this one.
Great meal...totally enoyed my meal.
We have dined at Bice many times for lunch. I ordered linguine and clams. I had a tough time finding the clams but there was plenty of garlic slices and parsley.
The young woman that was our server was obviously more interested in the large table she was taking care of than the two of us
We have eaten at Bice several times and were never disappointed. However this recent experience was unsatisfactory. The food was absolutely horrible. The artichoke was doughy and overcooked. The fish was not fresh and tasteless. The pasta was pasty. Even the desert, tortoni, was melted by the time it was served. I question whether they hired a new chef. I would be reluctant to return there.
It is hard to find an excellent upscale Italian restaurant on the east coast of Florida above Miami. Our meal was as good as it gets. Dover sole, eggplant parmesan, and broccoli rabe were all memorable.
Nice meal and ambiance, but service was very slow and they actually forgot our after dinner drinks. When we mentioned it, they immediately brought them, and comped them!
We ate at the bar soley because the bartender was so engaging
Always an "in spot" in Palm Beach, Food is reliably good
Unreal nothing better
Our waitress was very unfriendly, to loud, and food was very average for the prices they are charging.
still the best Italian in Palm Beach. Food, service and atmosphere oustandind. No lengthy waits for food. Staff is energetic and professional. 20 plus years and still worth the visit
My sald with grilled shrimp was delicious! The service was excellent. However, we were seated next to a thin curtain that separated the dining room from the hostess desk and bar area, and the music from the other side of the curtain was deafening and we could not hear each other talk. It appears that there is another room which may be quieter, but we didn't realize that until halfway through the meal. There were hardly any people in the bar, so we couldn't understand why they are driving diners away by keeping the music so loud.
Enjoyed the energy of the restaurant. Food was very good and attentive service. Nice ambiance. We will return.
Always great food and service. A great food experience every time.
Bice is by far the best best best Italian food in all of palm beach
Nothing even comes close
Authentic dishes that leave you completely in awe
Service is five star and the staff is excellent
Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Everything there is fresh and delicious! The ambiance is beautiful! The service impeccable! Our second visit, brought friends this time. Were able to eat outdoors. Just lovely
It’s one of the best meals in town
Rude, combative manager. Got all sorts of additions on the bill, that weren’t ours. Had to make the reservation three times, because they kept canceling it. Then we added one person to the reservation and they canceled the reservation again, blaming Open Table for canceling it, because “OT always does that, when you change the number of people”. Manager totally out of line, screaming at people. We finally just left, having paid all sorts of overages
on the bill, that weren’t ours.
We were a party of 4 and sat outside. Lovely, quiet atmosphere.
This place was solid, but not good enough to return. Service was good, but food didn’t blow us away.
Bice was great and we always enjoy going there. Vibrant bar scene and wonderful service and food
I took my friend for bday dinner & was SO EMBARRASSED. From the greeting at the door, the presentation of the food, the food itself and the lack of attention by staff and attitude of staff, the experience was totally unpleasant.
I grew up in Palm Beach and used to dine @ Bice at least once per week. But I will not be back.
The maitre d' was arrogant. The waiter was there only to take the initial order. The veal picatta served was totally unappetizing both in appearance and taste. Gray meat w white potatoes. Not even a sprig of parsley for color. Cold bread with frozen butter. Greasy calimari.
We were so afraid to order dessert that I got the check and we went to Sant Ambroeus for lovely desserts & coffee.
Bice used to be an elegant restaurant with lovely food and attentive staff. No more. This was a bad experience.
