An all-around disappointment. Glacially slow service (even by the low standards one expects on a Saturday evening), mediocre, bland food...(maybe the first French restaurant I have ever been to where the chef must not have heard of those wacky condiments salt and pepper....) escargot and fore gras were utterly forgettable...and to top the evening off the waitress was completely unapologetic about throwing an extra bottle of wine on our tab....guess we’ll keep searching for a good French bistro in North Palm Beach County....

I have been to the Cafe multiple times for the in the past 7 years. Each was excellent and why I return for special occasions.

However, this was not one of them. The onion soup was exceptionally salty! Tasted like they doused it with celery salt.

The veal Osso Buco was prepared with an unusual sauce that did not pair wth the dish. It was not complimentary and harsh. It also was excessively salted or spiced.

Every restaurant has a bad night. I will come back but I thought you know.

It is in a lovely setting. Perfect evening weather and overlooking the Jupiter Yacht Club and walkway. The food was great. The salads and mussels were top quality. A perfect scenic place for a great Florida dinner. Denice

We were underwhelmed. We follow a gluten-free diet, and came to this restaurant because they offered a wheatless chocolate cake dessert. Before being seated, we told our server of our dietary needs. Her response was, "I can guide you." OK. First, without asking, we were led outside. Second, when we chose a table, the server wanted to separate the two tables for seating another couple right next to us. We were only the 3rd occupied table at this point. We prefer to not dine with strangers on our shoulders, so we had to find another table. As to "guiding" us on gluten-free options, what we heard included, "You should be alright", "I think that's OK" and similar not very helpful "guidance." On several occasions, we had to ask explicitly to check with the chef on a question -- we can only hope that was actually done.

In conclusion, our meals were average, service was weak, but the dessert was excellent (and, presumably, gluten-free). Going forward, we won't be including this property on our lunch rotation. If you are from cold climates, the sunny, warm marina environment may cover up the weaknesses we noted. But, for locals, there are just too many good options to be underwhelmed.

I love dining at Cafe des Artistes. The food, service, and ambiance are just wonderful. I love sitting outside by the water at any time of day. The wait staff is always pleasant and prompt, even on a busy night, and the food is always delicious. I would recommend dining here to anyone and always take my out of town guests here for a special treat. My all-time favorite is the Moules-frites and a glass of champagne. Love <3

Wasn’t happy that we had to pay a sharing charge even when we ordered appetizer, wines and dessert and coffee. Should apply only if you only order one item.

Delicious dinner in a charming atmosphere by the water. My only criticism is that the carrot purée tasted more like mashed sweet potatoes, and if the menu doesn't label the food properly, it should. Scrumptious desserts. Not a bargain but not unreasonably priced.

Delightful first experience. Food and service excellent! Quite crowded however, and awkward entering from inside the complex - had to walk amongst already croweded diners to get to maitre-D (need signs to point to side entrance.)
Would highly recommend for the food! Thank you.

This was our first dining experience at Cafe des Artistes. My husband and I chose this restaurant because of the location on the intracoastal. It was a delightful afternoon and we enjoyed our anniversary luncheon there. I had the blackened shrimp special over mixed greens and it was delicious! Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. My only complaint was the close proximity to other diners. We were seated so close to another couple that we heard their entire conversation and it was quite distracting.

This restaurant used to be fun and good under previous ownership. Now it is overpriced and the food is below average.
Our waitress attempted twice to shove on us a wine that I really did not want because they had run out of my first 2 choices ,... to top it all, as we were leisurely finishing our meal, the owner showed up and told us that we had extended our stay and other people were waiting for the table....

Food and service were excellent. The only detraction from the ambiance is that there was a dog sitting on chair at the table next to me literally being feed by its owned with a bowl on the table. Absolutely classless at a somewhat classy restaurant.
