A very busy Father's Day meal. You could tell the restaurant was a tad understaffed. However, I'd eaten there before and I know on a typical (average) night, the service is great and food is a little better prepared.

Good Food and Good ambiance. Prices were a bit higher than necessary. I would Be fine if they cut down the Portions 25% and did likewise to the price. Otherwise was a good experience.

I love this place, my favorite in Boca. The food is delicious, the terrace outside with the view is very relaxing, Greek music mentally brings me back to my home, Cyprus. But what is most important to me, this place has its own identity, the sole! Rafina is not like other places, it's unique, that's why I love it.

Rafina is a "go to" restaurant. The food and service is always outstanding; and the view is very pleasant, too. One of our party is on "The Mediterranean Diet"; and the menu offered her many great options.

Once again our party ate outside with the constant breeze from the lake water adjacent to the deck. The wines, the appetizers and the entrees were absolutely perfect. Our party of 6, for the most part, ordered the perfectly prepared lamb chops and I took the broiled eggplant that was perfectly cooked and gorgeously presented on the plate.

This restaurant is our go-to eatery and will be that for the foreseeable future.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. My out of town guests would rave over it. But tonight's dinner was very disappointing. The food was prepared very differently, lacked flavor, rubbery octopus, I could go on. Everything lacked the excellence that I was used to. What a shame.

Four of us ordered Greek salad with grilled chicken.
2 people received chicken not cooked throughly through.
Other two orders where incorrect without chicken and we asked for condiments on side, that didn’t happen.
Then when bill came charged wrong price for adding chicken. Menu said $5.00, check had $7.00. We brought this to waitress attention and she said that’s what the manager did, I will just remove the chicken pricing on all of you. Ambience is nice, we sat outside.

My lambchop were over cooked, before the order, I specified medium rare, they gracefully replaced but than the meat had no seasoning, had only 2 potatoes wedges and a ton of green beans with pasta sauce thrown in. My boyfriend had the porkchop, both of us our chefs and was not impressed with our meals.
I also made reservations for an outside table and the table I chose wasn't available due to it was for a larger crowd, they was not Express when I made the reservation. The ambience was extraordinary. In my opinion their lunch options are a better choice.

Great experience at Rafina. Food was delicious and portions were large, we ordered stuffed sole and moussaka.
We shared the dessert special, which was a delicious blend of custards. The service was friendly and professional. It was a perfect evening to dine outdoors and enjoy the lake ambience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all my family and friends.
Overall good value.

Food is wonderful, especially the lamb chops. Love the complimentary pita and red pepper/feta spread as an appetizer. Restaurant is quite loud. I’ve been there a number of times, however service this time was not wonderful- waiter was not attentive and was surly.

Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. The only draw back was that it had rained pretty heavily that day and there were a lot of nats around our food. We weren’t even sitting outside, we had a table in the lobby of the building. Other than that it was an enjoyable experience

The octopus appetizer was delicious. I could eat that all day. My wife’s eggplant entree was good, the tomato and risotto that comes with it had lots of flavor. My linguine with seafood mix was not that good, that pasta was soaked and smothered in a buttery sauce that never blend in with the seafood.... it was like 2 separate items each with its own particular flavor in one plate. Felt like two side dishes. Service was superb from Isaac. We are at dusk outside and were bothered for a while with little flies humming around, maybe put citronella candles around ? I will go back and try other dishes. All around it was an “ok to good” neighborhood place.

Love the restaurant! Too bad the night we were there a large group was celebrating very loudly. The noise level was high, but I do get “party” time. The food and service is always on point and I brought several people with me who enjoyed the meal.. but not the noise. Maybe next time we will try eating outside!

This neighborhood restaurant is an "always reliable" place to go. The salads are great. The lamb chops are wonderful. The restaurant offers outside dining as well as inside dining. If there is a large crowd dining, the restaurant can become quite noisy.
