    We had a 730 reservation they sat us right away he took 25 minutes to get a vodka and soda. Excuse the waitress gave us was that we are very busy tonight. It was not that busy! The restaurant was extremely loud, but that’s not the restaurants fault happen to just be some loud parties. But the restaurant was not that busy it’s not like there was a wait and they had plenty of open tables. They were just perhaps understaffed, and no general manager to oversee things. We then asked for a black coffee at the end of the night, and that took almost 15 minutes to get.

    Ordered the Thursday special, a Neptune Roll. (Combo lobster/shrimp) The roll was stale and there was a bare minimum of seafood..mostly celery and extremely cropped up “seafood”.. for $18, it was extremely disappointing. Service was awful as well. Don’t know what’s going on at Walt’s but it seems food quality and service is going down the drain.

    Great date night! We enjoyed everything we ordered and would like to highlight the Brussels sprouts and spicy cauliflower sides, and the bangin’ shrimp appetizer. On one critical note, the mister ordered the ribeye cooked medium and it wasn’t quite prepared right with one side charred. It didn’t really stop him from eating it though. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. We will return.

    We truly believe that Walt's is one of the most enjoyable dining experiences in Boca. The food is excellent and fairly priced. There is a very satisfying selection of cocktails. The staff is obviously anxious to make your visit a pleasant experience. We have had James wait on our table several times, and he is very attentive and friendly.

    We were outdoors, nobody was really around us with where we were sitting, so it was very quiet and pleasant. I ordered the beef stroganoff, which was a little bland, it needed more salt, and some pieces of the beef were not the best, but most were okay. The crabcakes were very good, and so was the lobster mac and cheese, and the orzo. The dessert, chocolate cake, was excellent.

    Both food and service were great! Loved the decor. The Walt burger and truffle parm fries were excellent! The bread pudding dessert was more like a cake than pudding, but still tasty! Will def be going back to try other menu items.

    We dined here for our son’s birthday. The food was outstanding—steaks cooked perfectly and salmon also. The calamari to start was some of the best in the area for sure. Our server was friendly but overworked and therefore a long wait for everything as he was covering too many tables. Overall a great night and we will be back!

    Started eating too late so understand staff wanted to leave but they made it uncomfortably too apparent. Restaurant offered coupon 1/2 off second entree but didn’t reflect on bill until asked. Thought that was a bit dishonest of the waitress. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    The food was excellent, and the service was too! My husband chose this restaurant for our anniversary, because we both were looking for a restaurant that had an "all-American" menu. We both enjoyed a different type of steak, and the food was seasoned and cooked to perfection. We will definitely return to try other items on the menu. It is great to find a restaurant that seasons their food perfectly, and that offers a menu that is broad enough to satisfy most tastes, but not so large that it is impossible to navigate. They even offer a gluten-free menu upon request. We found this restaurant to be exceptionally clean, and everyone from the hostess to the hosts, and our server, were very accommodating.

    Poor service, my sesame crusted tuna had no sesame seeds and tasted like fake tuna….rubbery and grisly. No silverware in table when food served. Sat there with food for 5 min waiting for waitress to remember we asked her for silverware.

    The acoustic was a bit loud due to all the hard surfaces and seating close to the kitchen. Prices are getting ridiculous even for three people that did not order any beverages. Service was on point great. Food choices on menu was good.

    We tried Walts when first opened and were very disappointed in the service and the food. We finally decided to give it another try (It was that bad). Completely different experience. The service was a bit spotty but that seems to be the norm currently but the server was pleasant and made up for it. The food was very good all the way around except the tuna was average. Very good fillet, truffle fries, burgers, brussel sprouts and calamari. Definitely going into the rotation.

    Menu and food were good. Value is great. Would like to go back when more people are there. It was a Sunday night and very quiet but space is very nice, attractive and well appointed. Food was good and I’d definitely go back and try other things. We had steak, tuna, and apps were shrimp and flatbread. Cheesecake for dessert was also good. Expected higher prices for what it looks like it could be so very nice option and hope it succeeds.

    The food is always very good, the service excellent, especially if you are lucky enough to get Deena as your server. Lovely ambiance on the outside porch. A very reliable “go to” place. Whenever we bring new guests they have a very good experience, which is why we keep going back.

    We had never been there before. After we were seated i had to ask for someone to come by because we were sitting there awhile and no one came over. The order was taken but not delivered correctly. My chicken tasted old. Had to ask where the waiter was to bring the check. All in all not a very good dining experience.

    I have visited Walt's numerous times and the " goto" entree has always been the Salmon however I was bringing a friend to celebrate her Birthday and decided to order the Pork Chops with Peaches and Goat cheese. Unfortunately, I will not order that again. The pork chop was so overcooked that I could barely cut through it. I explained that the the waiter and the only thing that was said to me was "Sorry". It was never suggested to replace it or order something different. I was completely turned off that I didn't even finish the side dishes. I assumed Walts would hold a higher standard. I was mistaken,
