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.

Restaurant was pretty quiet due to being mid-week and COVID.
Servers wore masks, washed hands frequently, and menus were paper.
Tables were more than 6 feet apart.
Excellent wait staff, very friendly and were familiar with the menu.
The Palm Beach cocktail was delicious!
Ambiance was back to the 40’s

Food and service not good especially for the prices!
Even with the pandemic Taboo is in need of a reboot

The food and service at Taboo is always top notch. The menu, despite COVID 19 reductions, has plenty of wonderful choices. The Pork Chop is one of our favorites, but the grilled Salmon is excellent as well. The Caesar salad and the MASSIVE shrimp cocktail are favorite starters. When we want a more causal dinner, we go for the peperoni pizza and the cheeseburger. The bottom line is anything you order will be great. Don't forget the ice martini's. ENJOY!

Visiting West Palm Beach for a business meeting at the Breakers, a few colleagues got together for dinner and we had a blast! The food was phenomenal, drinks and service outstanding, and the ambiance is really well done. I would highly recommend Ta Boo to all!

Love this place as a quiet get away. Old Palm Beach vibe without being stuffy or overly formal. My husband and I can actually relax and talk with each other. Excellent cocktails.

It was during the corona virus season, so both food and service was a bit limited.
The server was nice to us. The restaurant seemed understaffed however.
Food was good.

Brunch was a failure. My Huevos Rancheros came out cold and then without the sausage, which was like a ton of bricks and a substitute of bacon which was inedible, the meal was less than appetizing.
Service was very good.

We’ve been to TaBoo many times and have always had a great experience. This time however the hostess was extremely rude when we asked to change tables, rolling her eyes and saying something nasty under her breath, and women were walking around and approached the table to provide information on the products in their shops on Worth Ave. it really was very annoying and disruptive from an otherwise pleasant lunch.

The crab stack was a disappointment. Not enough mango to taste it and the crab had a chemical taste to it. The others seemed to like their food but nothing outstanding.
I do love the architecture but it is so noisy, you can hardly have a conversation!

We had a nice lunch at Ta-boo. Good server. The food was excellent- warm chicken walnut and cheese salad, veggie bean burger. Both were really good. The only disappointment was that the Endless Summer cocktail that I ordered from the bar was not very good. It was far too tart for my taste.

The ambiance was bustling, with great people-watching opportunities! It was very enjoyable and we wanted to stay longer. Overall a great lunch stop.

Everything was average. Cocktails took too long to be delivered. The lemon sole was satisfactory but no better. Usually have the poached salmon and should have again. It is always superior. Doesn’t any place have a dress code any more? Sloppy cargo shorts and flimsy tee shirts don’t belong in a more formal atmosphere. I was one of very few men to wear a sport coat.

Disappointed with the sweet potato and coconut encrusted mahi mahi during a corporate dinner for 5. 2 of us orders the mahi mahi. The description sounded great. After serving 3 people at the table Our waiter came out to tell us the chef didn’t like the way it looked and was remaking it. What we got were a couple of blobs of mahi mahi in a large bed of mesclun. 1 cube of mango for the salsa and 2 green beans. No flavor. I barely ate 1 piece. A real miss.

This is the first time we have come here for brunch. Great selection of food. You could also get lunch at that time. Our friends came with us. We ordered the gazpacho and lobster bisque. Also omelets, quiche, and avocado toast. EVERYTHING was delicious!
We will come back for dinner soon.

I hope it was merely a blip on the radar, but the kitchen was in complete meltdown mode. So bad that the manager was comping dinners all over the restaurant. Have great memories eating there, but probably won’t go back.
