Steak
At Cafe Flora, we invite you to join us in celebrating the best of Tuscany's food, wine and lifestyle. We strive to recreate a quintessential Tuscan dining experience, serving fine Italian cuisine prepared with only the freshest produce and highest quality steaks, paired with Tuscany's most popular wines and set in a rich landscaping under the stars.
Surrounded with colorful bougainvillea, fountains and manicured gardens, Cafe Flora is enriched with gracious hospitality in a polished "secret garden" atmosphere. Owners Heinrich and Pamela seek to inspire and transport guests, providing a rare combination of sophisticated cuisine appropriate for Palm Beach's formal, white-linen dining destinations with the warmth and hospitality of a neighborhood favorite. Tucked away from the bustle of Worth Avenue in a picturesque courtyard behind Hermes and Jimmy Choo, camera-shy celebrities and other local notables often seek refuge in dining at this "hidden gem".

Service was awful. Appetizers were good, but main courses were lackluster. Waited forever to order dessert. Finally left and ate ice cream at home. We won’t be back.

Love the atmosphere of this restaurant! Very quiet on this Sunday evening at the end of the season in Palm Beach. Was not as happy as I thought I’d bewith the lobster ravioli - sauce too heavy for the lobster in my opinion. I prefer the lobster to standup to the sauce. Burr at a appetizer was perfect!

Great, as always. Started with the dates, split the gorgonzola salad, and had the "old school " Bolognese. We were celebrating our anniversary, and they comped us on lemoncello.

We were looking for Italian food, what we got was an Italian experience. Not many restaurants can perfectly match authentic Italian cuisine and service - this place nailed it! We had four different dishes, each with distinct and succulent flavors that were true to their origin. The prompt and precise service is another accurate reflection of what we enjoy in Italy. Our server actually recommended a lesser priced Tignonello red that knocked it out of the park. I look forward to returning to this superb restaurant.

Sat indoors are requested which was lovely as we had the room to ourselves. The fig appetizer was excellent and had 4 pieces which were good to share. Pasta was good, not the best Bolognese but better than most. We still like Bices and Sant Ambrose's better. Next time I will try a different entree. The service is excellent. The negative was waiting for the valet parker both before dining and leaving. He asked for his $5 and handed us the key and told us where the car was parked. I never had that happen on Worth Avenue. They need to replace him.

Best Bolognese pasta. Made with veal. Lighter and tastier than beef.
Veal Milanese also great. Served with arugula salad on top. I like it on the side keeping the veal crisp.
We’v Been going for years and it gets better every year.

Food and service were fine but they have expanded their outdoor patio to the point that the kitchen can no longer keep up with the crowd. We were repeatedly asked whether we would like to order before “things back up in the kitchen”. This is NOT the fault of the waitress but rather a management error in putting profits ahead of the interests of its guests.

We’ve eaten there several times and love it. I love that I can order a healthy meal with the Burt’s Bolognese (a lighter chicken version) over zucchini noodles. I’ve had it several times and its always delicious. The bread is great, crusty bread in a great size you can have a small piece or several if you want more. Salad greens are fresh and lovely, presented very attractively as well as being tasty. My husband had regular bolognese and the key lime pie which he loved and our friends had a bolognese and the pesto pasta along with a vanilla gelato with a chocolate sauce that they loved. Everything was wonderful, as usual! It is usually out door seating unless the weather isn’t promising, which it wasn’t this time and we were seated in one of the arched alleys leading to the restaurant which created a lovely ambiance. I had always wondered what would happen if it rained or threatened to and now I know. It was charming even sitting one table away from the one closest to the street (Worth Ave.). While I wouldn’t want to sit at the table closest to the street, it was still charming and somewhat “italian” in the atmosphere. Like any outdoor cafe, you get to “people watch” a little.

Loved the atmosphere--sitting outside in amazing weather among beautiful palm trees
The food was delicious, the service was very nice--not too rushed or too slow....
but I hesitate for only one reason--if the weather is not good--then the whole experience won't be any good. Rain, wind, humidity--all these things could spoil a lovely evening.
