We discovered this restaurant years ago just driving by, we had a lovely time and have come back from time to time.
As vegetarians we would appreciate a vegan entree but I’m guessing there’s not a big call for that sort of thing.
The we’re happy to put together a plate for us and that works fine for the occasional visit.
Huge wine list, quiet patio us heavenly, service was attentive.

Stated simply, this was one of our many excellent meals! Cafe Chardonnay combines creative and delicious dining options with excellent service and an appealing setting. The menu is broad enough for just about anyone to find a tasty dish. I highly recommend this restaurant, and will definitely return during subsequent vacations to Florida!

Food was delicious, and service excellent. Our table (between 2 other tables of 2) made conversation quite challenging. Also, my Chardonnay should have been much colder (sorry I didn’t send it back). Disappointed that, even with an early reservation, they ran out of Frank’s Meatballs 🙁
Otherwise, a perfect evening! Will definitely return

If you look at the reviews other people have left for this neighborhood gem, you will see they number in the thousands. So no surprise it is superb! The Oysters Rockefeller were authentic and perfect. Wedge salad crisp, fresh and just the right amount of creamy blue cheese. The oven roasted rib veal chop was the best I have ever had ANYWHERE. My wife's Osso Bucco was also world class. Wine list is reasonable and well assorted. The prices are on the high side for the area but you get exactly what you pay for.... excellence.

We were here on Valentine's Day! Had a wonderful relaxing prix fix dinner, each of us had a different dishes and all were delicious. Starting with Appetizers: Blue Point Oysters, Shrimp cocktail and Tuna two-way. Entrees: Rib-eye steak, Rack of Lamb, Vael Scallopini and Bouillabaisse were out of this world delicious. Dessert: Apple Pie A La Mode, Creme Brûlée and Chocolate cake finished the meal.
We have eaten here before and has always had a great meal. Will definitely recommend Cafe Chardonnay to others.

Our waiter was crawling under our table on his hand and knees trying to stick paper under our table legs to stop it from wobbling. It was Valentine’s Day-all table had valentines confetti on our table except ours. We had to make a comment about it after the people next to us “shared” theirs. Took very long to receive bread and had to flag down waiter to place dinner order. Very poor service for such a beautiful restaurant and such a special occasion. Very disappointing at best for the $200 price tag for two dinners with 1 cocktail.

Duck was good, not as crispy as I like. Bouillabaisse was soso. Broth watery and had a fishy taste. A little disappointed as it is our special place to go on a special occasion.

They Greeted us at the door by name. That’s pretty impressive. And, it wasn’t like we were the only ones in the restaurant. I’d recommend this place highly to anyone.

The macadamia encrusted fish was superb, as was the skirt steak. The roasted brussels sprouts, however, were shockingly disappointing. They were overcooked and had very little flavor. So unlike this restaurant.

I did not get to see the cafe except through glass doors. I was seated outside though I had asked for an inside table for one. The foie gras was raw and tasted like chicken liver. I also ordered the cioppino which was acceptable but nothing remarkable. The Bailey's Irish Cream cake was like pudding and not a cake texture. The mosquitoes were remarkable! I had gone out to the restaurant to celebrate my birthday but came back disappointed. I would not go back there again.

We have always loved Cafe Chardonnay. This trip we were down as my Mother-in-law (who would have been 101 next month) passed away. Because we have a tiny family we invited 7 others for dinner after the funeral.
We had a lovely round table for 9, a great waitress, Ludya, and a really nice evening. This was one of my MIL’S favorite places; we celebrated her 100th here last year.
My usual is the Rack of Lamb, always delicious and cooked just to my liking. Two people had the Sea Bass, also delicious. There were Short Ribs and Veal, not a bad choice by anyone.
We shared a few desserts; The Bailey’s pie, Chocolate Molten Cake and Cheesecake, all wonderful!
The staff was amazing, the ambiance is lovely and the food and drink are superb. I highly recommend Cafe Chardonnay!

The cobb salad was absolutely wonderful! I had not ordered that in other visits to the restaurant, but I will definitely have it again in the future. It was a fantastic combination of crunchy bacon, tasty shrimp, perfect avocado and tangy blue cheese, plus other things.
