This was our first time eating here and we were pleasantly surprised. Well done!
I love my neighborhood restaurant and I try to support them, as a local business, as often as possible. The food is exquisite, and even though very few patrons wear masks the staff is careful about social distancing, and I felt overall safe with the open doors and windows and the space between tables inside.
The staff - from reception, bartender, waiters and buspersons - are competent, efficient and most of all: warm and nice in spite of how busy they tend to be.
Foodwise, the quality is incredible for the price. The grilled octopus is one of the best I've tried in South Florida, their selection of Greek wines is very compelling and overall it's a great place for business/leisure, for seeing the locals, have a bit of a water view and pretend you're feasting somewhere in the Mediterranean. It's an adult crowd -read that as you may- and you'll run into the family crowd earlier in the day. Happy hour may be your best bet, when drinks and menu options are super inexpensive and you probably won't run into too many families. Recommend reservations for busy times, especially if you want to sit outside. Enjoy this jewel of a place in Boca.
Food was delicious. Portions were generous. Service was excellent.
We really enjoy this place. The food was good . The salad was plentiful and delicious. The pita bread and dip were a great complimentary beginning to our meal. The main courses, Moussaka and Organic chicken were tasty . We love the ambiance coupled with good service . We will return.
We ate outside and it was extremely windy. The staff provided us with blankets but our hands and face were still cold. That caused us not to enjoy the evening. We were celebrating a birthday. As usual the food was very good.
Everything from the food, the outdoor setting, and the service couldn't be better.
As always enjoyable place to dine. Brought new friends there and they seemed to enjoy the food as we did.
Still love those Lamb Chops.
We love it here!! Delicious Greek food and superb service always!!
Happy Hour outside was wonderful! Tables were spaced properly, food was excellent, service was great, and Happy Hour prices were a really good value! Highly recommend!
Service was excellent
Tables outside well spaced
As usual, food, service, ambiance and staff are fantastic. Rafina is the place to go for lunch, dinner with friends or a romantic dinner with your spouse. One of my favorites.
Our second time eating here. Delicious Branzino which we’ve enjoyed both times. Really enjoy this place!!
Great Greek food. Place was very busy but the service was still very good
It was sad! Valentines day and it was bad. Service very slow and lots of space with lots of waiting plus the restrooms were a mess!!! Will never gi back!
we love it here. Food is always very good and the service is very good
Four of us had delicious food, great service, wonderful outside atmosphere and a terrific experience. However, two minor issues: two of the dinners were cooked perfectly, but one of the lamb chop orders was undercooked and mine, medium, was overcooked. Our waiter Chris, very attentive, immediately took the undercooked one and shortly brought it out and this time it was perfect. I told Chris I would keep mine. Overall, everyone was very happy and satisfied.
Excellent food and really good service . Will definitely go back!
I love Rafina – we sat outside and had a lovely lunch. Service is always excellent and the food is delicious with big portions and very good price especially at lunchtime
Always love coming here! It’s one of our go to’ restaurants. !!!
Great Covid safe seating on back deck. Very accommodating to our party of 6.
We have asked fr outside seating. However, when we came the patio was so crowded. not looking too safe that we asked for a table inside in the corner. (no one was inside). We had a server who had no idea what she was doing, and did not even come over to ask if we needed more water, coffee etc. I seemed that the manager did not even pay attention to the fact that 4 people are eating inside.
We are coming to Rafina often - we like the food but to be ignored? I don't think so.
The outdoor dining area is very comfortable and on the water. The happy hour appetizers and drinks are very reasonable. We tried the spinach pie and house wines and we were very satisfied. I had the lamb chops and my wife had scallops. All the entrees come with a choice of soup or salad. I had a chicken lemon soup which was delicious. My wife's side salad was a very generous serving which included olives and a stuffed grape leaf in addition to lettuce, tomatoes and small hot pepper. Our dining companions shared a Branzino and also enjoyed their dish. Because they shared for a small additional charge you can get double sides in addition to a soup or salad. A very good value.
Very nice. Sat on back porch overlooking lake. Waiter, very attentive. Food very good.
This is the best Greek food that I have eaten in Palm Beach County, and elsewhere. My companion and I shared a Chicken Empanada appetizer. For a small sum, we shared an entree of Spanakopita with 2 Avgolemono Soups. They cut the entree in the kitchen which made things easy for us.
Thank you Paul, for a great meal. Don
Always Superior Service and food!!
Food was delicious.Service fine.
All our meals were great as was service. Only complaint was after dinner went to ladies room very nasty. During these times should be very careful. I couldn’t want to get out & tell manager. No excuse.
A very wonderful Greek Cuisine establishment with outdoor seating on a lake with Fountains-The food was excellent and the service was one of the best..
Everything was good. A little cold but the provided sanitized blankets. Nice touch!
So, no pita, no dip. Nothing. No one aver came over to check if everything was ok. No one came to refill our water glasses. No one asked if I wanted to refill my drink. They didn’t want us to be there, obviously. If you get the waitress with long blond hair in a low ponytail (she has an accent, in case there are other waitresses with long blond hair) you’re in for poor service.
Excellent service. We were treated like royalty even during a very busy time. We will be returning soon.
Sat at the bar last night. Fantastic service and food was excellent thank you
There hasn’t been a meal I haven’t enjoyed at Rafina. The staff is always professional and the ambiance is always lovely and the food always delicious. I’ve never been disappointed.
To begin, my entire career has been hospitality. This review is only based upon my last experience only and does not reflect all of my experiences at Rafina. Beyond a few mishaps, it's been good relatively. With that said,... Given the circumstances, our server Carlos was very gracious and accommodating, so A+ for his efforts. On to the food... Soup= good, but lukewarm. Very long delay for food to arrive. When it did come, only three of the four entrees came. Rack of lamb= good. Filet= overdone. Spanakopita= lukewarm, dried out, bland & ungarnished. While others ate, I waited ten minutes for the Chicken Oreganato= WAY overdone, dried out and inedible. Having a career in restaurants, I let it go. I know that the kitchen can have a bad night. Carlos felt it should have been taken off the menu. He asked the manager to please remove item from our check, but manager said "No". Will I ever go back... ABSOLUTELY! But concerning this particular night... "echei perasei".
The waiter, Wellington made the dining experience even better. The food was delicious and Wellington is a very attentive waiter It was a birthday celebration.
The food is delicious and the staff are wonderful. It has a really nice view.
We love it at Rafina. Food delicious and everyone so nice!!
We chose this restaurant as it had a lovely outdoor patio. The food was amazing and every single member of staff was super friendly and helpful. We are already planning a trip back there. Inside was beautiful too but because of Covid concerns we sat outside, tables were spaced out and staff were following all precautions. They have a great selection of items on the menu and everything we had was delicious.
Service and food were amazing. Great ambiance with the exception of the amount of flies that were out last night. Wish they could do something about that, but overall a great experience.
