Hreat special watercress salad, fabulous fish: black grouper & sea bass, dessert: berries & sorbet
Rude wait staff wanting to rush us out of the restaurant
We made a late lunch booking and clearly they didn’t want to serve us at 245
Also we highlighted through Glassdoor that it was a birthday lunch and they clearly forgot, right up to the point that we were leaving and they showed up with a plate of spare biscotti and a candle
Not a great memory
We LOVED our experience. Everyone was so friendly and attentive. I had the Frenchie cocktail, the Caprese Salad, and the Sea Bass special and it was all. perfect! My husband had a risotto dish with crab and lobster and the waiter recommended an excellent wine pairing. We can't wait to come back!!
We have dined at Renato’s many times over the years during trips to Palm Beach. On this occasion, the ambiance and food were superb, as usual, but there was a real problem with the service. Our waiter never introduced himself and disappeared for long stretches altogether. Water glasses had to be refilled ourselves from a bottle on the table, very difficult to order an additional drink, and we had to flag down a busboy to get a roll. The service was perfunctory, at best. We have experienced outstanding service at Renato’s in previous years.
The glasses and the silverware were dirty. I had to send my wine glass back 3 times. The food was decent not great.
Always a very pleasant experience. We love to take friends and family there for a wonderful meal with excellent service and a beautiful ambience.
Must sit outside. Outstanding food.
Great service and great food. The ambience was wonderful! There was a party of 8 next to us that were loud, but they were the exception.
I think this is some of the best dining in Palm Beach. It is romantic.
Wonderful dining experience
Palm beach at its best. Salads fresh with crab...great breads...nice desserts...you won’t be disappointed.
From our arrival at restaurant, it was a delightful experience. I had gazpacho and my daughter had a salad. For dinner i had excellent branding and daughter had delicious fettuccine with beef. I would recommend to anyone.
Usually outstanding service... just not this time.
We arrived on time and they put us in secondary room. Considering that I am a resident of Palm Beach, I made my reservation in a week in advance, am a very active Open Table member and there were plenty of open tables in the main dining room , I was dismayed where they seated us. The food was very ordinary, at best.
We had a fabulous anniversary dinner here last night. Sat outside in the courtyard which was so beautiful. The food was delicious and the surroundings were lovely with the twinkle lights and flowers. The place is very pricey so I think it will be a special occasion place for us and not a regular dining option.
The only reason I didn't give the service 5 stars was because no body ever came to refill our water glasses.
Foie Gras shouldn't be on there menu, it could be that it was previously frozen, so when served, it was watery almost like melting gelatin, I mentioned to the waiter and no acknowledgement was perceived. All thought the main course was good and the service started well, at half time it was not existent, our empty dishes sat on the table for twenty minutes. Very sad, because the restaurant and courtyard are absolutely drop death gorgeous.
Renato's is the best choice in Palm Beach for great food, great service and the most
Always excellent over the years we have known this restaurant
Great meal. Great Service and will return.
Always yummy!! Never disappoints.
My husband and I were in Palm Beach for vacation and we thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. We sat outside in the lovely courtyard on a beautiful night. Heaters were on to take the little chill in the air out. Service and food were exceptional! Great wine list too!
Great ! Beautiful place,
We had a fantastic experience at Renato's! Service was absolutely top notch - Carlos took great care of us!. The Caesar salad was the best I've ever had... fresh, fresh anchovies! The veal and chicken dishes were outstanding. A thoroughly enjoyable evening... will be sure to return on our next trip!
Lovely long romantic lunch with my husband. Wonderful food, ambience and fabulous waiters!
My husband and I went to Renatos to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary . We arrived early had drinks at the bar and then proceeded to our table on the patio . The patio was very romantic and we were pleased with where we were seated . Our waiter arrived ask if we wanted additional drinks we declined . Minutes later he abruptly asked if we were ready to order we weren’t in any rush apparently he was . We ordered 1 appetizer to start and he asked if we were going to share the appetizer I didn’t think anything of the question . It arrived on 2 separate plates which other restaurants have done in the past . My husband wasn’t even done with his drink and bus boy came by and took the glass . They also took my bread plate with half a piece of bread I was still eating on it . We felt very rushed . We each ordered an entree which we enjoyed . Again we barely ate last bite and they ran over to take our plates . They offered coffee and dessert we both had dessert which was excellent . In our reservation I told them we were celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary they never mentioned it at all . I was very disappointed with the restaurant and the service especially at the price point . Lastly we get the bill and because we shared our appetizer they added a 15 percent additional charge for sharing ! We paid the bill didn’t say anything about the charge which was never disclosed to us when ordering . We will never go back to Renatos again !
My family has owned a 2nd home in Palm Beach for 36 years now. Have seen a lot of restaurants come and go over the years so many of the places we have enjoyed are no longer there. I had not been to Renato's since it really did not appeal to me. My daughter really wanted to go so I relented. It was exactly what I expected......a place where you get sized up immediately and given the worst table since you aren't a regular. I have no desire to dine in restaurants where the service staff treats their customers this way. The attitude we received at the host stand permeated throughout our experience there. There are any number of reasons why the service fell off at the point of receiving our entrees. Could be because we had to send the steak back; shouldn't a chef be able to prepare it as ordered? Also we are not big drinkers and had one cocktail each.....could be another reason. And again not being regulars was very likely another reason. Too many great places to eat where they know how to deliver an exceptional experience. Not at Renato's. And P.S. the food is mediocre at best nothing special.
Perfect setting in the courtyard. Very pleasant staff.
We loved every moment of our evening there with close friends.
We brought friends from Ohio to enjoy what we told them would be a “very special meal”. You did not disappoint. It was a perfect evening for outside dining. The ambiance was spectacular with beautiful flowers, crisp white tablecloths, soft candle lite and impeccable service. The menu offered wonderful choices and it was hard to settle on a choice - but drinks, wine, salad and dinner was excellent.
The setting at Renato was beautiful and enjoyable as it always is. Service level is excellent. Unfortunately my appetizer and entree were sub par at best.
The Slice of foie gras ( $28) was the size of my index finger. Very disappointing. My veal chop was almost raw at best. Not what I have experienced over the years at this restaurant
Old world Italy ambiance in the middle of Palm Beach. Food is fabulous..... Staff wonderful...
A wonderful lunch spot
Consistently very good food and service in a lovely setting
Perfection from beginning to end!
We are never disappointed when eating at Renato's!

It is noisey in the courtyard and main restaurant.
We sat in the wine tasting room where it was not noisey.
It was a a beutiful space with noise seperation from the courtyard.
Best seat in the house.
It was a pleasant evening, even with the mediocre food.
Superb in every way!
Gave this place a second chance and shouldn’t have. $22 for a “caprese” Salad which consisted of two small SLICES of tomato and two small pieces of mozzarella. Hilarious. $36 for a mixed seafood cocktail of two shrimp a tablespoon of crab with bland ketchup and mayo. Awful. We had a reservation for outside specifically and they sat us inside. I sent back my glass of wine because it was hot and like vinegar. Never again.
