La Masseria - Palm Beach Gardens
always amazing food
the new chef is great
Great! We’ll definitely be back.Brit was a great server!
Food was flavorful as always. Service was a bit lacking. There were times, especially when waiting for our check, that we were left for quite some time without attention. We were also quite disappointed that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, as noted in the reservation, yet the restaurant did nothing to make it feel special. Other locations we have celebrated have offered a complimentary dessert. If they did not want to do that, at least wish is a happy anniversary or put a heart in the raspberry or chocolate sauce of the 2 desserts we ordered. The lack of attention to their diners celebration made us feel as if we should not return for any utter celebrations.
Always like this restaurant and request it but this night the service was quite poo.
Our group of friends wanted a local dining experience where we could visit and enjoy a great meal. You didn’t disappoint! The food was excellent, the service/wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable and the ambience was really good. We enjoyed the evening and will definitely be back!
Food was terrific and the service impeccable
Truly mediocre meal. Fault lies in kitchen. Lobster risotto special-lobster was overcooked, risotto gooey and tasteless. Chef too busy according to waiter to shell/remove shells, probably because it was so overcooked we couldn’t get the remaining the lobster out of the shell and had to hold up the lobster to get the risotto underneath.
Two of the main courses arrived at the same time as the turbo for two arrived to be deboned. By the time the turbo was ready, the sitting entrees had to be returned to the kitchen to get reheated. Veal special was something you might expect at a cheap diner, with little taste and a sauce that seemed almost like a ketchup base. With tip, meal came to roughly $500, representing extraordinarily poor value for poor kitchen execution.
The service was not very good and it really wasn’t too busy to justify that. The food was mediocre for the price. Was the second time here and we will not be going back.
Delightful evening sat outside weather was perfect. Our waiter was great - very helpful and informative. Food was delicious.
Food was a little disappointing I had the Dover Sole and my husband had calves liver
Tremendous lunch menu great value for great food.
It was wonderful as always!!!
Dinner was a disaster. The best was the antipasto and the Masseria salad. The vegetables were cool to cold when we requested they be hot.
A glass of wine we order with dinner never came. We ordered to double espresso and they were cold.
Overall I think the restaurant is overrated and over priced.
Perfect service with outstanding food and wine. Pure perfection!
It was a great meal with exceptional service
The entrees were underwhelming. Two people ordered the vealscallopini and both said it was tasteless. One ordered clams with pasta. Clams were good , the pasta not so good. The fourth had the salmon and that was excellent. The calamari @ shrimp appetizer was very good. Dessert was good.
Management handled the comments about the food well and comped the dessert.
Service was excellent.
service was confused lot's of managers/supervisors running around doing nothing to help the servers
Food and service was excellent
Waiter forgot what I ordered and served others. Another meal warm not hot. Had to ask 3 times to get preordered slice of cake w. Birthday candle.
This had been one of our local dining favorites until this last visit. We had a similar experience on two other dining occasions but decided to give it another try. Our penultimate visit we arrived promptly for our reservation only to learn they were running behind schedule on seating. We decided to get a drink at the bar and wait for the hostess to let us know when our table was ready. Well, that didn't happen and she actually forgot about us. We decided to not complain and eat at the bar. The bar staff was/is excellent. On this last visit, same problem with seating issues. We were told 15-minutes, went to the bar, waited...no communication with host. Finally we were seated at a table in their bar area not the main dining room. Service was good but the food was average, not what we remember. This is not an inexpensive dinner and you expect quality on all levels. Three strikes and you're out. Won't be back.
We really enjoyed ourselves but felt like a few things could have been better. I don’t usually complain when portion sizes are too large but that was the case on every dish we ordered. The crudo was large and had way too much fennel—and I love fennel. The swordfish was large and had a lot of pistachio crust and the potato dish was good but again very large. Just overkill!
The service was considerate and kind but not totally informed. A little more prepping prior to service would be good so that explanations can be rendered easily.
I would still like to return to enjoy some other intriguing items on the menu
We were greeted warmly, our table a great location, service outstanding, food delicious; an overall lovely experience!
100% rating all the way around. What an awesome restaurant!
The BEST salmon I’ve ever tasted. Always great food
Food and service are fantastic! Luca was wonderful!
A wonderful experience. great food presented well good service great menus choices
We've been to La Masseria several times and it is usually exceptional. Last Friday was hopefully a rare stumble. All 4 of us decided to order from the Flavor Palm Beach menu and we decided to add the suggested wine pairings chosen by their Sommelier. This should have been an easy, smooth experience. The food was excellent as usual but the wine service was a struggle for us. We couldn't get across to the waiter we wanted their choices to pair with our food selections. The wines were shown on the menu so we thought this was easy but apparently not. He kept asking about it, we kept trying new ways to explain.
Then we asked that the first wine selection be served early so we could talk before the first course. Instead, the first course arrived immediately and we had ask 2 other servers to find our waiter and get our wine! This was followed by more discussion about wine for 2nd course, and again the food came out very quickly. We definitely had a sense of being rushed.
Also the wines were brought out in individual small carafes instead of poured in a wine glass which made for a very crowded table as some of us hadn't finished the first carafe when the second one came out with the super fast food.
It was just weird. I guess we'll try to avoid weekend dining from now on.
Food and Service was Excellent-Soup and stuffed Mozzarella was spot on. Bolognese and Pasta with Basil sauce very good. House Chardonnay was good and desert well that was the best Cheesecake ever.
Anniversary, it was amazing the food was delicious. And the manager and service where amazing .
Outstanding. We opted to order from Flavor of Palm Beach Prefix menu.
Participation in restaurant month made this delightful to enjoy their specialties. Service was exceptional. Broad menu and nice wine selection.
Absolutely delicious and the service was amazing! It is pricey but worth it!
All i can say is everything was fabulous! Greeting; Service; and food! Highly recommend!!
Very pleasant dining experience
The food is consistently excellent and ambiance is terrific. Service is wonderful and Massimo is a wonderful host!
Wonderful people .. delicious food
The food at this restaurant is fabulous. I commend the kitchen! The table service while friendly, polite and solicitous is amateurish for this price point. This is our second time trying this restaurant with the same opinion. Most notable is placing entrees while appetizer plates were not only still on the table, but still being enjoyed.
We decided to try out the Flavor Palm Beach menu at La Masseria and we were quite impressed. It was our first time in to the restaurant and we will be back. The food, the ambiance, the knowledge of the servers were all something to write home about, even for my boyfriend who works for an Italian company and travels there frequently. The stuffed branzino was melt-in-your mouth delicious and the stuffed mozzarella was unlike anything I’d experienced before. We will be back and and have already recommended it to friends. Thank you for a great experience.
Not only was the food and wine delicious, but the staff was awesome as well! This is also as close to an authentic Italian restaurant atmosphere as you can get in the states, it was amazing!
