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.

Went there for my birthday and couldn’t have been happier with the food, service, and overall ambiance of Taboo... a must if in Palm Beach area.

We arrived with a reservation for 8:45pm and there was no one to greet us at the door, so we had to make our way to the back to find someone. The service started off okay once seated. The Shrimp and Crab salad was delicious with a tasty dressing and generous pieces of crab .
I asked the waitress if the margarita pizza was served with red sauce and she said Yes. We ordered the pizza and there was no red sauce on it and it was dry. When I showed her the pizza, she responded that it usually comes with red sauce and that the kitchen was closed. She still allowed us to order a regular pizza but it would have been nice if she communicated 15 min prior to the kitchen closing, so we could order dessert as we had planned. Overall, I would probably come back but perhaps for lunch next time.

Very old guard Palm Beach. Food reminds you of dishes from a bye gone era that is fun to revisit. Classic 40's interior resembles the "Boom Boom Room" of jungle visions.

A dining pleasure. We even "lucked out" with the price fixed dinner that had great selections at a great price.
We save this restaurant for Special Occasions and are never disappointed.
Great server which adds to the enjoyment of the dining experience.

Awesome experience! We dined in the ‘Jungle Room.’ The ambiance was great and the food (and variety of it) was even better! Also, Sally was superb! She engaged with us personally, injected some humor, while delivering drinks and food on schedule. A party of six, we even added a party of two halfway into our meal and she folded them in as if they had been there all along!

We have shared our excellent experience with others and will definitely return to Ta-boo!

Virtually everything about this restaurant is great. The food was amazing, the service was awesome, great sized portions and pretty reasonable prices, and I’m not sure I’ve been to a restaurant that so thoroughly nailed the ambiance through the decor, music, etc. Definitely one of the best restaurants in palm beach

Placed a reservation on OpenTable because my sister's boyfriend was planning on proposing on Worth Ave that night. I wrote in the comments that it was my sister's birthday, but we would also be celebrating a surprise engagement. I also asked to be seated in a specific room (if possible). They were so accommodating and made sure there was a reserved table in the room we requested. The service was phenomenal and the food was delicious. I would give this restaurant 10 stars if I could. Such a beautiful evening.

This place is so special. Great happy hour and two very different vibes from the front room to the back rooms. Elegant without being stuffy. Lovely live piano as background music. The summer prix fixe is a great value with a choice of app, entree and dessert for $39 (with some upcharge for a few items such as steak). Will definitely be back!
