After having read the online reviews I was expecting the food to be pretty good. I felt rushed from the moment we were seated as they kept asking for our drink order without giving us time to settle, relax and decide what we would like. When we were given menus the only special we were told about was their fixed price summer special, after taking a look we decided that we liked some of the options so ordered. I started with the stuffed squash blossoms, and my Mom selected the summer vegetable tart which sounded lovely but was disappointing, overly salted, bland and nothing special. Even the bread that we were served was stale. My Mom ordered the veal scallop for her main course which was immersed in a heavy brown gravy that was not memorable at all. She only enjoyed the potato and string beans that were served with it. I selected a fettuccini with calamari and summer vegetables and had I been blindfolded couldn’t tell you what I was eating. I selected another appetizers of grilled prawns that was dry. I won’t go on but will say that they did comp my dinner that I sent back. Overall very disappointed and won’t return.
The food was OK, the place beautiful but the service not was what I expected.
Wonderful atmosphere, great service, outstanding food.
A True Gem.. celebrated mom’s 90 Birthday Amazing space Amazing Service.
Good place.. But don’t be outside, a lot mosquitos.
We celebrated our Anniversary and it was exceptional! Food was amazing and service was the best ever! We will definitely return!
The ambiance, food, and service was excellent, However, since its a small inside restaurant, the table next to us was quit noisy. There was also a piano player.
This was our first visit. We selected Renatos to try something new and past reviews. Overall Renatos is far overrated for the food and service. Very pretentious wait staff who seem to step over each other. It was a slow night as the wait staff didn’t have enough to do other than hover. The appetizers were quite interesting, but the pasta entrees were quite mediocre. Since the restaurant has been around for several years, perhaps our expectation were much higher than what we experienced. Will not return as there are many better alternatives.
Had a delicious anniversary dinner. Food was so good and the service was excellent. We had the salmon and a pasta dish.....chocolate lava cake was sinfully good!
Very nice and very quite off season. Food was excellent enjoyed everything we had.
nice restaurant with good food, excellent service and great cocktails.
Great courtyard dining. Incredibly comfortable even in the dead summer heat. Service was good. My only complaint was it was too fast. Our appetizer and entrée came almost immediately.
The restaurant was very quaint and the service was attentive yet we didn't feel rushed. The menu selection was very good with a variety of options. I highly recommend and would return.
The mosquitoes ate me alive. We were sat outside. I couldn’t even enjoy my meal. The server did move us inside. But the mosquitoes were there too.
Service was excellent -- every waiter and head waiter were extremely attentive.
Selections: as we are vegetarians, the menu appeared limited, but once they found out our restrictions, they were happy to accommodate.
Food was fabulous. Wine was excellent -- a bit pricey, especially since we just came back from Europe (Italy: Venice, Verona, and Milan), so a glass of a nice wine at $20 reminded us that it is always better to order a bottle.
We love this restaurant. It has a very special ambiance. The service is impeccable. The food is always exceptional. We always have a wonderful time whether just the two of us or joined by friends. Great for a special occasion. Not at all stuffy but cozy and welcoming.
Renatos’s s is always consistently superb. Beautiful setting, great wait staff and the best Italian food in the area.
Great service and lovely food. Our waiter customized our dishes a bit and that was fantastic. Lovely to sit outside as well even mid summer.
I truly enjoyed dining at Renato's. The food was very good, the service was excellent and the ambiance was incredible. Excellent wine list too.
Our new go to place in Palm beach! Wonderful summer menu very attentive staff!
Absolutely outstanding! We are from NYC and frequent the finest Italian restaurants often. This was, hands down, the best pasta we ever tasted in our lives. The fettuccine Alfredo was a dream. Just exceptional. The courtyard is so romantic and just lovely. The servers could not do enough for our children. It was like being in the courtyard of a private home in Italy. Wonderful experience. Highly, highly recommended.
Nice atmosphere and great attentive service but VERY expensive. Have had other excellent dining experiences for half the price.
Excellent service as always, Thank You
We both had pasta, and it was very disappointing. A spaghetti dish looked like a blob. Flavor ok, but overall experience of the food not good.
Was reccommended by a friend who frequents Palm Beach from Ohio. I was visiting from the West Coast of FL.
It was wonderful; the food was divine and the wine.
Great spot ; will come again
One of the best restaurants in Palm Beach!! Wonderful service, very nice people. Food was also amazing. Definitely coming back!!
Very nice restaurant.
Overall very good. Chose to sit outside and soon regretted it. Seated amongst the hydrangeas and was bitten up by bugs so badly I had to rush thru dinner to leave. Restaurant did offer bug spray when we first sat down which should have been a red flag. Dinners were good, I ordered my salmon med rare and it came out more well done. Still tasty just would have been better rarer for my taste. Prosciutto and melon app pricey but delicious. Veal chop very good. Still a great restaurant, with consistently good service.
Tables inside jammed together--servers constantly bumping into my seat to reach guests at another table. As a result of the packed tables, the restaurant was very noisy although it quieted down as diners left. (Had it not been raining, eating outside would have alleviated these problems.) One diner's steak was disappointing--it had no flavor--but the rest of our party of 4 thought our meals were quite good. My wife never received her port at the end of the meal, but when we pointed that out, not only was the port credited back, but we were each served a glass at no charge. Very classy way to handle a minor service error.
The best service we have had in a long time . Beautiful place , and great food . We definitely would not mind the 1 hour drive from sunny Isles beach to come back to this place .
The family spent a most wonderful eaving at Renato's, celebrating the end of school year, and a night to remember.Food& service was fabulous, the wine service perfect, our meals wonderful! We choose to dine indoors due to humid condition outside, and enjoyed our visit!soon to return.
Took my wife here for her birthday. The food and service was excellent. Mushroom ravioli with truffle caviar was yummy.
Amazing place! The waiter was wonderful! Is definitely a place to visit when you are in Palm Beach!
I used to LOVE Renato's - was my most favorite restaurant. Food was always good. Went for dinner two years ago and then again two nights ago and both times left being very disappointed in the food. This time I had the Salmon Pasta. There was very little salmon in this huge mound of pasta that stuck together so much, there was no possibility to twirl it around a fork. There was absolutely no flavor to it either. For 30-some dollars, I would have preferred a smaller serving of something very special - the way Renato's used to be. Next trip to Palm Beach, I will
skip this restaurant.
Really lovely setting and meal, professional, elegant service. Best beef carpaccio ever; excellent osso buco. Extensive wine list. Not inexpensive, but worth it.
Food was really good. I will definitely recommend it.
Lovely ambiance. Food was outstanding and the servers were very attentive. Highly recommend!
Beautiful restaurant and fantastic food and service.
We celebrated outer anniversary there and it was excellent. The food was outstanding, the service was prompt but not intrusive, the wine list was great and the setting was beautiful. Perfect night!
Dined here on a Saturday evening, following all the glowing reviews. Renato's does NOT disappoint! We walked in from the bar entrance, which featured live piano and a good bit of vibrant bar activity. We were seated outside, which was pleasantly cool on this June evening.
My wife had the fixed price menu, which included a nice selection of first courses, delicious soft-shell crab and a great pistachio cheesecake. I started with a salad, followed by a superb Maine lobster & crab risotto. Each bite of this delicious risotto contained a big piece of lobster or crab, and the overall flavor was just perfect.
Service was exceptionally good, utilizing a team approach with frequent attentive but nearly silent inquiries as to our needs. I emphasize the quietness of this great service, as I object to loud, over-active waiters offering needless conversation. This place is a TEN.
