Everything from the moment we entered the restaurant was outstanding. The restaurant was nicely decorated for the holidays and the service and food was excellent as always. We especially enjoyed the beet salad and onion soup as well as the rack of lamb and the chocolate pecan pie.

We enjoyed a delicious meal in a nice atmosphere. Our waiter was very attentive, and the chef accommodated a dairy free dietary restriction. Would recommend for a special occasion or a lovely dinner out!

I have visited the cafe several times while traveling about once or twice a year. I can clearly say I have never experienced bad service or food. Even though PGA has several other restaurant options I would never change. Everyone one of the staff from bus boy to waiters are very helpful and professional.The meals served are always
Fresh and they take great care on details with the presentation of whatever they serve and it is always delicious!

Excellent in all catagories. In fact we were discussing the 5 star service, food, location, etc. during our meal. I had one of the best servings of pompano that I can remember. My other three companions also raved about their meals and the service provided by Jimmy.

For 20 Years has been one of our favorite spots. Food is always good. However, front desk always seems to be in flux. When reserving we always ask for downstairs, but 5 out of 6 Times we are told we have to wait, even though we have a reservation.
We have great difficulty acending the steep steps to upstairs dinning.
And God forbid you have to go to the bathroom downstairs.
Guess they just don’t care about old time loyal customers.

This is our favorite restaurants when we visit our second home in Palm Beach Gardens. The appetizers and dinner selections were great and the service was excellent. The restaurant was decorated for the holidays and looked warm, cozy and festive. The wine selection is extensive. Don’t miss the opportunity to dine at this neighborhood gem! You won’t be disappointed!

We had a house guest visiting from New Jersey. He asked to take us to dinner and said we should pick the place. Well, of course, we picked our favorite - Cafe Chardonnay!

We have been to Cafe Chardonnay many times over the years. Unfortunately the day we went this time was the last day of a special promotion. The place was packed and although we got seated on time, it was not in the area we had reserved. It was noisy and the wait staff was having a tough time getting through the crowds at the bar and at nearby tables. However we did enjoy ourselves and will go back at a time where it isn't so frenetic.

Food was fantastic BUT service was horrible. We waited at table for 10 min before waitress came over to take our drink orders. Then came back 5 min later with drinks. 10 min later came back to take orders, took 2 of our 4 orders then said she would be right back. 30 min later no one came back and my husband had to go get hostess. She did send someone over to take our food orders. We were there over 1hr before we got our food. Then we ate our yummy lunch. Waited for a while to get our bill. Put our credit card down to pay bill and another 10 min went by. Finally our original waitress came back to drop off receipt. Not an apology or anything for the wait or her disappearance . Lunch should not take 2 hrs!

Excellent food and service. Roasted duck was superb and the yellow tail snapper which my wife had was as good as it's always been in the 15 years we've been dining there. A bit noisy in the upstairs area but that may be because there were two tables of eight near us. Will continue to return to this gem.

Service and food were marginal at best. Never filled water glasses or were asked if we wanted more water. I had to start drinking my husbands water. The best part of the night was the dessert. We were really looking forward to the night since it was my husbands 60th birthday. Big disappointment!

 (Tampa)·Dined on November 22, 2017

We have been dining at this restaurant for nearly 20 years. The food continues to be consistently excellent, creative, well-prepared, very high-quality ingredients.
However, in this most recent visit, we found the service lacking. The service was inattentive, and we had to continually try to get the waiters attention. The odd thing about this situation was that this occurred at 5:30 on a Wednesday night, and the restaurant was not busy. It was at least 10 minutes before the waiter even acknowledged that we were there and took our drink order.
That said, we love this restaurant, we will return, and hopefully we will have a better service experience next time
