Ambiance, menu, drinks, service was to our full satisfaction. We want to specially mention the outstanding, friendly, witty service by Anna. And the best Margarita in town, clearly made from scratch.

Ambiance was great, sit outside if possible to avoid the high noise level. The food was good, no complaints and the service was excellent. What drive the review is the high cost of the meal, very high for slightly above average food.

As a resident of West Palm Beach, I’m thrilled with the Norton Museum’s incredible, new enlarged spaces. Friday night dinner facing an outdoor venue used for fun and games, lent to the joyous atmosphere. A little noisy but we soon adjusted and enjoyed the food and wine. The server needed more training.

We truly enjoyed the food here. The dining experience is very similar to the art galleries surrounding it, unique, creative and tasteful. (And expensive, but that’s art).

We were pleasantly surprised when we went to the museum and having no thought of having dinner there. Then we stumbled upon the Restaurant and decided to stay and eat and were so glad we did. The food was great plus we had a lovely view of the gardens. Everything was 1st class so now we plan to go back when we are in the area, regardless of whether we plan on going to the museum itself. It was that good.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at The Norton. The food and service was excellent. The ambiance could use some improvement. The food is a little over priced for what you get but nevertheless delicious. The dining room reminded both of us of a cafeteria at Kennedy Space Center. It could use a bit more color and creativity to match the dinner menu.

Was looking forward to dining in the new dining room since the renovation ....the room is very contemporary ...but cold ...as was my entree and fries ..unacceptable ..food should arrive to the table hot .. and also we only saw our server once ...when she took our order and not again till we asked for our check ..but I think what really was the most annoying thing of the evening ,was when they charged us for a slice of bread !! NO ,JUST NO ....

We sat outside where it was quiet! Noise was not an issue but the mosquitos were.
My only suggestion would be overhead fans and citronella candles.
Otherwise everything was perfect

I was disappointed the bonmei sandwich I had once before and was delicious wasn't on the menu.
I ordered the fried fish sandwich. The fish was overcooked. The bread (only ate the bottom slice) was saturated in oil. I would have preferred coleslaw or a side salad instead of more fried french fries.

What a wonderful improvement to the old Norton! This was our first visit since the extensive renovations by Foster. This is now a museum one can spend a day enjoying with the additional bonus of a fabulous restaurant to round out the experience. The inside dining space is a bit noisy due to the hard surfaces, however the modern clean environment is lovely. We were there on a hot summer day and some brave souls were enjoying the outdoor seating area. In season during more favorable weather that will be a great alternative seating arrangement. Thank you Norton and the design staff of Foster for creating such a nice addition to West Palm Beach!

I thought the menu looked interesting but was so surprised at just how fabulous everything tasted. We went for lunch this past Saturday with friends who were visiting from Miami. Everyone loved their meals. We ordered the mushroom and Brie toast and needed to order a second one. The same with the Caesar salad with fried capers. Our friend ordered the Salmon with quinoa, edamame and cashews that was a perfect blend of flavors. I’m definitely getting next time! And my husband had a special that had pork belly and eggs on a baguette. Can’t wait to go back!

This resturant was quite costly for what it offered. Though the food was tasty, we have eaten at many other places that had great food and was more affordable. The service was excellent. The ambiance was nice, as the resturant is airy, modern and you could see out to the gardens where the art sculptures were, so if you are into art you would enjoy that aspect. We walked through the museum after our dinner and viewed all the art which was also cool. Overall it was nice for our date night.

After my second visit to the Norton since its re-opening in February, I treated my sister, who was visiting from Virginia, to lunch for her birthday. The restaurant offers a beautiful view of the green space and is nicely furnished; however, the noise level was very loud. There is nothing "soft" in the restaurant to absorb the noise. We would have preferred to eat outside; however, it was a very hot and humid day. We had the Fried Mahi Sandwich with Fresh Cut Fries, which was delicious. The service was very slow that day and we had to wait quite a while to place our order and for it to arrive.

I'd recommend and inform them of the cost $$$. We had to wait well over 30 min. More like 45 min! The least the management could've offered, as they apologized for the wait, was a complimentary drink. First time at the restaurant and most likely will not be back for a while.
