The place is not exactly the restaurant, this is the lounge. There are only a few standard tables, the rest are lounge tables with low sits. Every Monday there is Trivia game. I recommend to call the hotel for other events if you mean a dinner, not entertaining. Open Table should have an info about it at the reservation: if would be confusing to bring a colleague there.

The food is good. You are choosing between two, three and four dishes set price. Nothing to rave about, but everything was edible.

The decor is beautiful. Garden theme, orchids on the walls, sofas and chair fabric is gorgeous. Very relaxed and pleasant space to be.

The service was as shameful for the restaurant as it possibly could be. Friendly and enthusiastic, but totally unprofessional and helpless. You know this style: asking ifeverythinggoodsofar every time while you are chewing and obviously do not need anything (especially to praise the annoying waiter) and never come back is you asked to bring something. We had to chase him for the check as well.

My husband and I spent several occasions at CPB including Christmas Day , and enjoyed every visit immensely ,so I thought it would be perfect for Easter.
I made reservation using Open Table for myself and six guests on April 21, 2019 at 5 pm for Easter Sunday dinner. Being of an advanced age we respect the holiday , so men wore jackets and ties and women were dressed accordingly. The hostess brought us outside inches from the water at the pool with children running and splashing . A little awkward don't ya think? No , we didn't want to sit by the pool with jackets and ties on??? So she brought us inside to a back room , dark and dingy I might add. While the restaurant was completely empty . I asked for the round table I saw which was set for 6, "may we have that table please", I asked . "no, it is reserved " she responded. "yes it was me , I reserved it" "No reserved for someone else", the hostess said. Finally , the waiter who was very accommodating set up another round table. The service was excellent, food awful, the last time we were there we experienced fine dining, this food was not good. Five of the seven people will never return. I am so embarrassed to have brought them there.

I have to admit I felt disappointed this time at CPB. Have dined several times at CPB and couldn't wait to return.

Having stopped last minute on Saturday and looking forward to a wonderful lunch poolside with my husband in tow, only to find service didn't even make the scale and food was a total disappointment.

The freshness and vibrancy of fruit plate with scoop of CPB's curried chicken salad was subpar. I don't know if I caught the tail end of the restaurant's produce and stale curried chicken salad, but the freshness was not present so consequently I suffered the consequences. My husband ordered the turkey club, which was mushy, to say the least and looked old.

The servers are usually friendly and efficient, but on this recent visit, I practically had to go into the kitchen to find, ask for and followup items for our table.

I am a little turned off to this establishment and I'm hoping it had been just a busy Saturday crowd that threw everything off at CPB. Will not return in the immediate future.

Wonderful Palm Beach classic with a quaint chintzy vibe you'd expect. Great Decor. I was turned on by the dinner menu but the Brunch menu leaves a bit longing for. It was not bad but it could do do much better. I had a Ceaser's Salad to which my waiter forgot to add the Chicken I had ordered with it, it came shortly there after. Service, needless to say, tho he tried, was lacking professionalism. Once we finish our main meals, a check was dropped on our table without asking if wed like tea, coffee or dessert! I called the waiter out on it, he apologized. While we were awaiting our teas and coffees someone came around and collected the sugar caddy from our table, I promptly called this out as well since we were not finished yet. The second servers where all lovely and quick, hats off to them.

CPB is one of the little secret restaurant gems hidden in The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach.

Whether you are dining poolside or inside the experience of dining at CPB is very special. The atmosphere reminds me of my vacations in Bermuda and having Lunch or Tea while there.

The indoor bar and main dining room were recently redone and updated. There is still plenty of lush greenery in the room contributing to make one feel like they are one tropical island!

CPB is great for a festive ladies luncheon and is versatile enough to host a sensible “power breakfast or lunch”... my kind of place.

The servers are friendly and efficient and willing to please. Marie is great and attentive.

Quiet conversations can be had as well as larger group events in several different areas of The Colony Hotel.

Will return to CPB. The curried chicken salad and fruit plate is out of this world! Food is delicious.

Among the best food in Palm Beach, we sat by the pool and felt a real tropical resort vibe, even though we live here. Had the simplest prix-fixe menu they offered, no dessert and coffee and still managed to spend $200 for two people. Even by Palm Beach standards that is a lot!

Enjoyed a nice meal with my mom and sister by the pool. Food was delicious and the ambiance nice - very classic Palm Beach. Unfortunately our appetizer of avocado toast was late to hit the table and very cold since it was on multi grain bread they said had to be frozen - when it did come, it was just ok - lacks a little flavor. Overall a nice place for lunch with good food.

Superb. The quality and inventiveness of the menu, the exquisite and meticulous composition of the plates, was as good as anything I’ve ever tasted in New York, Washington or Los Angeles. Chef Tom Whittaker is a rare, new talent. Get a table while you still can.

I took a couple of friends from the Washington Nationals, general manager Mike Rizzo and his inestimable assistant/major domo Harolyn Cardozo. Here’s what they had to say: There’s a new regime at The Colony, the grandam of Palm Beach hotels. The meals are now as colorful and as sumptuous as the hotel décor. New executive Tom Whittaker and pastry chef Emma Isakoff have remade the restaurant into a festival for foodies while maintaining just enough of the old tastes to satisfy old-timers. My endive salad was sculptural. The avocado gazpacho was creamy and luscious. I skipped the main course having received a hint of what was to come. Emma Isakoff presented a plated dessert with the three new recipes added to the menu just this week: A Cashew Cheesecake with rhubarb, hibiscus, and orange, which is vegan as well as dairy free and gluten free (like the pastry chef herself.) Next: a Greek Yogurt Mousse with a pistachio financier, sour cherry, honey, and morsels of buddha hand, a new fruit discovered at the market. And finally: Textures of Chocolate with Raspberry Rose Sorbet, white chocolate mousse, milk chocolate whipped ganache, dark chocolate cremeaux, chocolate hazelnut streusel, raspberry powder, and sliced raspberries. They tasted as good as they looked. And they looked as if they had been painted on the plate. Wow, just wow!

CPB is the only restaurant we went to that we will definitely go back to next trip. The hotel is fun and quirky, the staff were friendly and professional, and the food was fantastic. Literally nothing to change about the experience. Details: Our server Kerrin was very attentive and was helpful with recommendations and the maitre d stopped by to check on us as well. You can mix and match with the tasting menus, which I really appreciate. We were offered an amuse bouche of oysters, the bread for the table was warm and very good, our first courses were very good, and the main courses were fabulous. There were a lot of different flavors at work in each dish, combined very skillfully (and attractively). Deserts were also great. We were given individually wrapped cookies as we left, which was very sweet as well. We chose to eat outside which was nice, though be aware that if you eat early there may still be people in the pool (not an issue for us).

They need to train the staff in customer service. My wine was delivered with drops of red wine on the stem, thank goodness I noticed prior to drinking. Another staff brought my dessert without checking if I had a fork to eat it with. Of course, there was no comment card and management didn't come by to ask if everything was OK. Won't be back. Food was very good except for the dessert that was almost too sweet to eat.
