Excellent attention paired with great bar, wine and food experience. Restaurant completely renovated and beautifully decorated. Bar options, wine selection and food quality and presentation were top notch. Highly recommend for date night, groups or just a casual evening.

We've been here many times, but learned yesterday that is under new ownership. The good news is that the food is as good as ever! Huge portions (every time we go, we say we're not going to over order, but we inevitably do). The interior had been completely redone; the decor is less traditional steakhouse (dim lights, red velvet booths, etc.), and more modern. Service is still great-attentive without being overbearing. Wine selection for every taste and budget; we had a great bottle of Italian brunello for under $50. One of our favorite places to bring friends.

I've been to Callaro's a number of times and had a great experience. This experience with their newly renovated restaurant was 'chilling'. The restaurant has a $10 sharing charge, no problem. However I ordered a 24 ounce piece of Prime Rib at $49 and wanted to share with my partner. The waiter stated the policy and talked to the owner to waive the $10 because I ordered the largest piece of Prime Rib. The waiter came back and said the owner had waived the sharing charge. After enjoying a delicious dinner and had paid the check. The owner comes over and states that the sharing charge has NO EXCEPTIONS. He allowed the waiver on the check because the waiter had made the concession (not true). He also stated EMPHATICALLY that if I return, the sharing charge would be in effect, NO EXCEPTIONS. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE by the OWNER. He need not worry, I won't be back. Good Food, idiot for an owner!

Great food. Free bread and valet parking! Service was a bit slow but maybe we are not used to the restaurant trying to get us out so as to fill seats again like most chains do. We had the $30 special with prime rib, onion soup and lava cake. All were amazing.

My wife and I went to Callaro’s steakhouse for a celebration. We were pleasantly surprise that the restaurant was a much better experience and reasonably priced than steakhouses that are considered higher end restaurants. The atmosphere and ambiance was exactly what we were looking for. The waitress was knowledgeable on the menu as well as the wine list. Not to say the other more expensive restaurants we’ve been to weren’t, just that she felt is out and made the perfect recommendations. The food was spot on and delicious! From the bacon appetizer to the perfectly cooked steaks. This is without a doubt not only our new go to steakhouse, but in fact a new favorite of ours. We loved it!!!

Prime rib had very little flavor and my son got the Delmonico steak medium cooked however, it was burnt on both sides.
The service was great and atmosphere was classy.

Callaro's would become my "goto" spot when I have guests or others to impress. But it's just too noisy - it's so hard to hear others at the table and have a conversation. The food is great and the service is always top notch but the din inside the restaurant is just too much for me.

We had a party of 5. The steaks and veal were excellent. I ordered the wrong dish as the salmon was dry. Would try the place again. The service was friendly but a little uneven as they did not initially understand my order and I ended up paying more as a result.

Food is good, but always too noisy. Noise level, even in the off season is too high. Noise level makes it a less appealing place to go on a date.

As usual the service was great as was the food. My Wife's meat was slightly over cooked and the waiter made the remake immediately and with a funny quip. The redo was great and we feel all restaurants are entitled to one oops, especially when the food and service are consistently superior.

A pre-show dinner with friends at Callaro's. We'd been there before and loved it. The service was top-notch. The waiter was attentive but unobtrusive and entertaining. The prime rib was really good, as were the French fries. On the down side, the crab cakes were disappointing. Fortunately, the crab taste was not overwhelmed by excess green and red pepper as is often the case. The disappointment was that there seemed to be a lot of filler in it. Callaro's is, of course, a steakhouse, and we should have stuck to the meats.

Thank you for choosing us for your pre-theatre dinner! We are so pleased you enjoyed your server's hospitality as well as the steak and fries! Thank you for bringing your underwhelming crab cake to our attention, we shared this with our Chef and are always looking to improve. We look forward to serving you again :)

The waiter rushed us and it was not that busy.Never asked what salad dressing we wanted,as he was leaving,we had to mention the dressing.We waited longer than usual for dinner,when those around us were being served,the ones who come in after us.
I was disappointed in the ham,never had ham that thick,took forever to cut.Food was just warm,even the mashed potatoes.
I was offered another piece of ham,just cooked,which was nice,but I declined.

Took my mother-in-law out to an early Mother's day dinner since I was in town for business. The Filet was cook perfect and the Creme Brulee was excellent. My mother said it was one of the best steak and the best Creme Brulee she's ever had. Highly recommend going to Callaro's

I would choose Callaro's over any of the high-end steak houses in Palm Beach. The food is fabulous. I had steak au poivre this time. Delicious! Don't pass up the Crème brûlée. It's the best I've ever had and I know my Crème brûlée! The service is excellent too.

We have heard from other long time patrons of Callaros that the prices soared and the quality went down. This was not the case on the night we went. The food was outstanding and the service was Fantastic. It seems that a lot of the past employees that had been there for ever have left. We will definitely return when we want great steaks.

Overall great experience. They took very good care of us. Was looking for a nice quiet restaurant to take my elderly parents before a show and we got that. Be prepared to pay quite a bit it is expensive but the food was outstanding only disappointment was they overcooked our steak but they offered to cook another so that was nice. I liked that you had the option to sit around the bar are, sit inside or sit outside along the street. Great place for a nice occasion :)

Bartender was great! He knew about wines and clearly had experience with awesome customer service! The hostess was very nice and she was accommodating when we had to wait for about 10 mins for our table. The manager for the evening was also quite a lovely person and he suggested wine for us to try and did the coolest thing ever be placing our cork into the foli on the side of the bottle. The restaurant itself has had a massive overhaul in decor and cleanliness and looks fab! Most definitely a place to go find with valet parking that is validated and wonderful food!
