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.

We always make a point of dining at Ta-boo when in Palm Beach, where we travel once a year at least. The day we made our reservation was for lunch before catching our flight back to Dallas. Our reservation was for noon but we got there at 11:30 because it so happens that morning that it was pouring down rain and we cut our shopping short due to the rain and some of the shops not being open. We finished our shopping and headed to Ta-boo early thinking it should be no problem since the website indicated they opened at 11:30. The door was locked upon arrival and tried to get someone's attention inside. Eventually someone came over and told us they open at noon. I said can you please let us in, we're getting drenched! He said "I don't have the key to the door". We literally stood out in the rain for the next thirty minutes waiting for someone to unlock the door. They kept saying the manager had the key and he hadn't yet arrived. When the manager miraculously appeared at straight up noon and unlocked the door, I gave him a piece of my mind. What terrible hospitality! Not to mention, your restaurant opens at noon and the manager - the only one with the key to the front door- doesn't arrive until exactly 12:00?? It was a very bizarre experience. I certainly expected a free glass of wine at minimum for them watching us stand in the rain for half an hour but no such offer was made. Really disappointing experience at one of my favorite spots in Palm Beach.

Ta-Boo had a beautiful atmosphere... warm yet quirky and still had the old school feel.

The food was beyond delicious and if all that was not enough.. our server Trel was over the top! Pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable! A true professional!!

Thank you Trel and Ta-Boo for a fantastic last dinner in Palm Beach... we will be back!!

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

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!

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.

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.
