Impressed! I know that Cucina has been an established restaurant and we were curious about the recent changes.and kept hearing the rave reviews, so we wanted to check it out to see if it lived up to the hype. From service to food to atmosphere, we were truly impressed. Can't wait to come back and bring friends, it's now our Palm Beach go to spot.

Beautiful space. Excellent renovation. Happy vibes. Menu easy to understand and perfect execution. Nice to have such a fun and local spot with a culinary focus. Looking forward to the octopus poke and some hang time at the bar again. Make sure to hang out past 10pm and get loose...

So excited with the this newest remodel of The restaurant. The atmosphere is beautiful and more importantly, the food is incredible now. They really have stepped up their game.

This is quickly becoming a local favorite.

There were four of us. We ordered the snapper piccata and the salmon. Both were excellent. Our server was attentive and most congenial. My only negative is the multiple texts and required affirmations for the reservation. We would likely choose this restaurant again.

It must have been an off night for the new Cucina - 2 drinks were made incorrectly, but quickly replaced. Food was slow in coming and not hot. Will probably give it another try because we have always enjoyed the restaurant, but the new version seems to be more casual, more focused on the bar and a little less organized.

We live close by and were excited to try the Impossible burger, a new addition to Cucina’s menu. We have had it many times in nyc, at several different restaurants and love it. This was definitely the worst rendition of it, we’ve ever had.
They served it between two pieces of soft lettuce, believe it or not. It was slippery, very messy and Impossible to pick up, so we tried to use a fork and knife and the lettuce and tomato went flying everywhere, including the table. The sauce it was supposed to come with was a thin smear, the size of a pea.
The burger itself was cold (as were the very mediocre fries) and tasteless, like they forgot to season it. We asked for cheese (because it was so bland and all the renditions in nyc come with vegan cheese) and they didn’t have any, so we agreed to have real cheese put on it (replacing the lettuce and tomato).
After we finished, the server asked us how we liked them and we gave her some input, even offering to speak to the cook about his version, compared to all the much better versions we’ve had.......and she did nothing. And said nothing to the “manager”. We then got the bill and almost fell over, when we saw the burgers were $21, each, plus they had the gall to charge $2.00, for a thin slice of cheese!!!
The entire time, the “manager”, instead of walking around asking people how their meals were, was sitting at the hostess stand texting and surfing on her cell phone. As we left, we decided to mention all the above to her and she got defensive and, instead of apologizing and thanking us for our helpful comments, continued to try and justify the existence of a $21 ($23, with cheese) burger. Save your money and go to The Grill, where the food is consistently good and the manager actually is trained and notices her surroundings.

Love the new decor! Smaller menu so weren’t sure what to expect but we were wowed!! I had the best moules frites (mussels and fries) I’ve ever had! Better than Paris or any French restaurant! My husband loved his short rib pasta so we will be back! And soon I hope.

Always a great place to dine. Recent remodeling was done well. The younger folks like that it turns into a dance place after 10pm. I like dining outside but those tables are hard to come by. When they say giant shrimp they mean giant shrimp.

Bartender was lackluster and picking her skin, which was strange. Impossible burger an unusual experience and chicken part a mound of red sauce which looked like what would be served at a truck stop.

Evidently Open Table reservation is meaningless ! We were ushered to the furthest table, in front of kitchen. It was 6:00 the place was empty.. a few at the bar, 2 tables on terrace, 2 empty and inside totally empty. We were refused every table that we suggested and told they we’re reserved . We said we have a reservation ! We gave up and sat very uncomfortably , watched party’s of 2 and 4 get the booths that we wanted . We will not go back. We live here and we will go where we are welcomed!!! And valued customers.

First time we've been there where the food was awful service was great there was a big party in the back of the restaurant and all of the attention was for them. We were the only people there on a Monday night it was empty service should've been good like it always is very disappointed we were with friends who had never been there before and they will not go back
