Racks has become one of our favorite restaurants this year. Love the food and the happening atmosphere. Service is always great
Loved the fresh oysters, crab cobb salad, Chilean sea bass. Great atmosphere, too!
We have been dining at Racks since they opened.One bad meal after another.It's never entirely terrible,that's why we continue to try it again. One of us has poor,over or undercooked food or we wait too long (45) mins for entrees,or...And this is what really inspired me to write this- one of us has an improperly cooked entree, asks to have it fixed (either remade or cooked more depending on the dish), and the time it takes exceeds the other people at the table's entire dining experience. So, after having an unacceptable entree sent back, one waits over 30 mins then eats alone... Ok, great. How about offering to compensate on the bill? Nope. Owner himself, Gary Racks, should be out of the business.Once,fine,twice,not so fine, 3x,you're out.
When all 8 of us said we would never come back to this restaurant because the food was so poor, I sincerely doubt that all 8 of us were wrong! The calamari was nothing but pure fried batter, the chicken was dry, the mahi portions were small and tasteless......I could go on and on, but really don't want to waste anymore of my time. Of all the restaurants in Mizner Park, this one stands alone........at the rock bottom!
Scottie, our server was amazing and enhanced our dining experience. Two of us had their awesome burgers and loved every bite. The third in our party had the crab cakes. Best ever! All crab and no filler. Will happily return soon!
This was one of the worst wait staff experiences that I'd ever had. To add insult to injury, the table behind us had an outgoing, friendly server and that is how we overheard different menu items that our server hadn't suggested. We informed management during our meal but things didn't improve.
Our party of 4 was displeased with the charges of the specials. Two of our female guests split an entree of 2 crab cakes and a salad and were charged $50.00 by the waiter who was simply asked to have an extra salad added as a separate entree - we were changed a sharing charge after he said he would take care of it. We ordered two seabass specials 4 glasses of beer and two glasses of wine and the check was $218.00! Rediculous. The waiter was very pushy to jack up the check for a better tip and was quite annoying. Could have had a petite filet at the best steakhouse for that price! Will not return unless it's for a burger!
It took 1 hour to get our burgers and our waiter literally ignored us the whole evening. The burgers were ordered medium rare and came out well. No one checked on us so it couldn't even be sent back. Water was never refilled. They added a generous 20% tip to our bill, I guess because we were a table of 7. The waiter must have been aware of this and never cared to earn it because he never gave us any service. He dropped off the bill at the end of our meal and never returned. We had to get up after 15 minutes and find someone to run our card. It was embarrassing because we were entertaining friends from out of town. We will never return to this restaurant. There is no excuse for this kind of treatment especially in the "off season".
Great service!!!....Great Food!!
Just blah; based on this experience, nothing compelling to make us go back.
Food was awful. Ordered Mac and cheese and it had such a bad smell it made be nauseated. Taste was just as bad. And we did send the 2 orders back. Only thing that was good was the oysters
Doubt any of us would go back. Manager should have come over to table.
Way over priced for what you got
We've been to Racks in Boca and Delray and to Table 42. All very good. Racks Boca has the benefit of fantastic interior design.
Good food and ecclectic selection on menu ffrom hamburgers through trout almandine.
While food is reasonably priced they make their profit on wine and liquor. House wines at $11.00 a glas not normal in SO FL.
I definitely wouldn't write home to mom about this place but they have good food and a great atmosphere!
I think this restaurant gets better every time we eat there! The onion soup is the best i ever had! Had a great night there all the way around!
This place would get a better rating, but for the type of place it is, and supposed owner who knows wine. The prices are outrageous. LIke this was fine dining establishment. We go here less and less. If you do not drink wine it is a decent spot, otherwise, I would say no go.
Went Friday night of Memorial Day weekend. Mizner Park is very cool where restaurant is. I have no complaints. The place had great food, service, ambience and was just plain cool.
Great place for a romantic dinner. Will be back
We had a great experience at Racks the staff was welcoming to us and our sleeping infant! The food and service was great 1000%!!!
Enjoyed a very nice pre-movie dinner. My wife and I both enjoyed our dinner. She had the crab cake dinner and I had a pizza. The service was very good and we were able to get in and out in just over an hour. We were there on a Friday evening and the bar area definitely runs at a low roar. Still, we would definitely return.
A little dissappinted as I've heard such good things... Maybe it was just an off night
The food at Racks was delicious. The crab cake salad outstanding. We are from Palm Beach and are used to pricey dining but for lunch this was a little excessive. Salads $35? It was wonderful but be prepared for $$.
We had a reservation and were told the check was just dropped at a table and it would 5 or 10 minutes.So,we went to the bar for a drink to wait,wait and wait.I had to literally call across the bar to someone if we could get a drink.There were three unapologetic hostesses who bordered on rude. We are now 30 minutes past our reservation time.We saw two managers at the restaurant.Neither took the time to come over to us though we were clearly unhappy.40 minutes after our reservation time,we sat at a table that wobbled so much that my drink spilled.The waiter was very nice,courteous and professional.The food was so so at best.nothing to come back for.Customer service is clearly not important to the managers.More happened, but not enough room.
With open windows on one whole side of the restaurant, they need to pump up the air! Humid night...I did ask if they would increase the air - but didn't notice it getting any cooler. We were all very hot. It was nicer outside when we left!
Service poor! Waitstaff not attentive. Expensive for food, service and ambiance.
This restaurant is NOT at all child friendly. Saw a previous review that said it was but what a mistake. 3 adults and 3 children ages 7-8-9 totaled $150.00 including tip. I asked for a children's menu and they said they had none. But said they had a child pizza so we ordered it for our 7 year old, I had a hamburger and my wife and son split 2 fish meals with our 2 other grandchildren. Add 5 soft drinks and 1 beer and the unbelievable sharing charge for the 8 and 9 year old which bumped up the meal an extra 5 bucks because they said it includes more food. Since we were a party of 6 being 3 adults and 3 young children they also charged an automatic 20% tip. Many families visit Mizner Park so I am very surprised of their policy.
It was our first visit to Rack's and the four of us, not always the easiest to please, all enjoyed our dinners very much. We sat on the back patio which was delightful, and the service, considering it was a busy Saturday night, was reasonably good. We'll definitely return and recommend it to friends, as well.
Great food..... Friendly staff.... A must visit when in Boca...
We have dined at Racks many times before and enjoyed the entire experience. Tonight, however, must have been a "off" night for Racks. Our server was elusive, particularly just after we received our meals...which was when we really needed him. Two meals at our table were cold and by the time we were able to get other staff to notify our waiter, ten minutes had passed. Those that ordered the specialty burgers were pleased to find their meals hot, juicy and delicious. The ambiance remains the high point at this restaurant with over-sized white chandeliers, fun booths, interesting lighting and patio dining--just stick to ordering the burgers and salads!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. Always love the "blue plate" specials.
We were recommended to your restaurant. We had a wonderful evening with excellent food and excellent service. The waitstaff was very attentive to my parents, as we were there to celebrate their 60th anniversary. I have recommended this restaurant to others!
Biggest problem with Racks is they do NOT honor reservations. This was the 3rd time we were sat 25 to 35 minutes after our reservation.Three strikes and your out, it's a shame because I enjoy the food and the service.
Great find! Delicious mojitos and wonderful appetizers.
Great find! Delicious mojitos and wonderful appetizers.
Thank you to Racks for helping us host a party of about 10 in the patio. Our clients loved it and has such a good time. Highly recommend the fish tacos (both versions), brussel sprouts, flatbread pizza, and their fries!
We have dined here many times and always have had a good experience!
One of our favorites, always consistent with diff menu items to choose
A very unusal experience for a place we really like.
Food was outstanding. Service felt mechanical and not very friendly.
FIRST VISIT AND VERY PLEASED WIITH FOOD AND WAIT Staff
