My husband met me for lunch during a work day. We chose Cafe Chardonnay because it was close to my office and was on Open Table! What a find! This restaurant is beautiful and romantic. I would love to see it at night.... there are lights and a gas fireplace out on the patio. The bar and interior seating were most inviting but we chose to eat outside. Our server gave us just the right amount of attention. I had a lunch special that offered a cup of soup, small salad and half sandwich. It was perfect. We hope to return to this great restaurant for dinner some time! It is a little expensive but you get the feeling that it is worth the price!

Cafe Chardonnay was excellent. The menu is creative, and the food is delicious. A bit on the pricey side, but a very worthwhile dining experience. Everything, including the service, is great. Really nice dining experience! Highly recommend. (Did I mention pricey?)

Food and service were excellent. DAVID was our server and made some great suggestions as well as provided fantastic service. Swordfish macadamia crusted snapper was perfect. Oysters Rockefeller were delicious as well as meatball appetizer tasted great. Wonderful meal.

Coffee and vanilla ice cream and chocolate almond cake was a great finish.

Was disappointed in the fact that it was my wife’s birthday and nothing was done. There were no special decorations or desserts or drinks or even an acknowledgement that it was her birthday.

You need to shake up your luncheon menu.
I was charged extra for 4 slices of avocado. that should have been served next Friday! Your chicken salad was unremarkable. The other 5 salads served were also unremarkable. Don't coast on your old rep, you've got a lot of competition now.
I was embarrassed I had recommended Chardonnay to my guests.

On my multiple return to Cafe Chardonnay I again had a very pleasant experience. Food was tasty (I had a veal scalloppni with gnocchi, my friends had Tandoori chicken and swordfish livornese, all delicious). The only disturbance was loud noise and we could not talk comfortably across quite a big table (the restaurant was very busy that night and there was no possibility to change the table to a smaller one so we could sit closer together). In any case, we had a good dinner and we will definitely come back.

Much too expensive for quality of food.
Service was good. we were celebrating a 50th anniversary and there was no special accomodation made for that event except some little happy anniversary things on the table. No free dessert. disappointed.

It was my husbands birthday. The waiter seemed to care less about taking care of us from the very beginning. Our shared ceviche appetizer was okay. The pieces of fish and shrimp and scallops where to tiny to see what you were even eating. One piece of my duck was great and the other was all dried out. and the wild rice had some other veggies in it that I didn't care for. My husbands halibut was excellent, he really loved it.
When making the reservation on Open Table I included a note asking for them to add a candle to my husbands chosen dessert but after the dinner plates were cleared the next thing I know "their" chosen dessert was put in front of my husband without even a "happy birthday" being said. As I said, the waiter seemed to care less about taking care of us.
I will go back, but I will also make sure we don't get the same waiter.

We have been writing excellent reviews for Cafe Chardonnay for decades! Dinners and luncheons have been very good and this is the first year we have been disappointed. Although we put in a special table request for my birthday, we ended up with our least favorite table and a young hostess who was less than gracious. The service and food made up for the disappointing table. For a subsequent ladies' luncheon we had a wonderful table but the friend who ordered the calves' liver medium ended up with totally overcooked meat, my salmon salad was terrible, salmon totally dry and uncooked halved brussel sprouts (should have been shaved) which were nearly inedible. In all fairness, the server who recommended the dish told me that if I did not enjoy the dish I could change it. Of course, when you host a luncheon you don't make a fuss about your chosen dish - nor ask for a detailed description. I have no doubt that future visits will be more enjoyable.

Café Chardonnay was bustling the night we ate their while vacationing in Palm Beach Gardens. The noise level was a little high for our taste. The wine list a good one, but like the food a bit overpriced. HOWEVER, all was forgiven when the food arrived. Salads are big and easy to share. Everyone of us raved about our entrée which were quite creative. The temperature on the salmon was perfect, the steak done exactly as requested, etc. A great place for a special meal with a special person.

We have been a happy patron for over 20 years. Wednesday night’s dinner was superb. Our drinks and appetizers were very good and the entrees- tilefish and duck were exceptional. Our table and server were great.

Cafe Chardonnay charges slightly more than other good North County restaurants but it is so worth it.
