Ta-Boo is an institution in Palm Beach, a legacy of tradition and a notable history. It embodies the classic ambience of a private club: burnished old wood, elegant fireplace, an expansive bar that is a tradition in and of itself. It's hard to think of this Worth Avenue gem as a " Bistro," but that’s what it is. The formula is a successful one; after all, Ta-Boo is one of the grand dames of the avenue dining experience. But calling Ta-boo a bistro is like referring to Chateau Margaux as a "Winery." There is something special-- a tried and true aura about the place.

    I have been to Taboo over a dozen times and consider it to be a 5 star restaurant. However our last visit was marred by uncaring service by our waiter Trevor. He consistently disappeared during the evening and paid no attention to us. He started by trying to get us to place our food order and drink order at once. We told him we’d first order cocktails and peruse the menu before ordering. Our drinks took forever and he never checked on us. Finally we ordered our food. A runner brought our food. I would have liked to have gotten wine for the table but Trevor never returned until the plates were cleared. Believe me I tried to get his attention but he seemed to disappear into the kitchen for long periods of time. A very disappointing evening. We told him he never checked on us but he said he was swamped, not true.

    Disappointing. Less than mediocre. Waitstaff was very nice but preoccupied. Ran out of my order but wasn’t told until 40 minutes after I ordered. Food was cold. Lovely decor, great location but food should be much better!

    The soup was not edible. Sent it back. The maitre dei seated the two of us among three tables with large parties, and the waitress was attentive to those tables and she had little time for us. And the other tables were a bit noisy. Entre was ordinary, or worse. Wine list did not include desert wines.

    Great service and people watching at a Palm Beach Classic. Our server Seth gets 6 stars! Prompt, friendly and efficient, he apologised that kitchen may have overcooked my meat and immediately had a corrected dish brought out to me (how many times have you had servers "disappear" when your entree is overcooked?).

    Was a little disappointed on our recent visit. We have not been to Taboo for a couple of years. The ambiance and service were stellar as always. The food however was not at the level we remembered. I usually order what i had in the past that i knew was great, but i went off script and ordered the Duck. It was dry and not tasty. My wife ordered a steak which was ok. The salads were great. I will be back sometime in the future.

    Our food wasn’t good at all. Had the cod meunière and it wasn’t even warm when it got to the table. Sent it back and they didn’t redo it they just tossed some new potatoes (not the ones that we had before they took the fish back) and asparagus on the plate and sent it back. Our waitress was very nice and was juggling many tables and she did her level best to get the food right. Claude the bar tender couldn’t have been more surely and rude. Zero stars for him

    Our Christmas Eve was ruined. Two entrees came out 30 mins before the other 4. The meat was all cooked in correctly. Two entrees came out without the sides or vegetables. It was meat on a plate. I would never go back. This is over rated and not worth it. The waitress was unapologetic and did not even recognize the problem.
