Great outside seating. Food was great.Appreciated that there was distancing between the tables.
Hi Lauzon, Thank you for your review! We appreciate your mentioning our outdoor seating and that you felt safe and comfortable. Please visit us again soon!
The bottle prices for wine here are already 400% above retail, but what was annoying was that the two-most reasonably priced wines were sold out, and when we asked for a same priced substitution we were refused.
The “background” music is incredibly loud.
Excellent food, though prices have increased quite a bit, most likely due to monies lost during months of closure due to COVID 19.
Hi Carolynne, Thank you for your 5* review! We unveiled our new menu about 2 months ago. This was the first menu change in over 3 years. Covid 19 notwithstanding, prices have gone up in the past 3 years. We are still making everything to order from scratch using only fresh ingredients delivered daily. We value your patronage and look forward to seeing you again!
Always excellent service and food.

Highly recommend this restaurant

We had a party of three. We ordered 2 bluepoint apps and a calamari. The oysters were phenomenal. The calamari was perfectly crisp. We had the jambalaya, linguini w/ clams and crab cakes for dinner. All were delicious. We finished our meal with coffee and expresso. Our server was excellent and backed up by the entire team. It was a lovely evening and and we will definitely return.

Hi xiaosongs, Thank you for your 5* review and kind words. Everyone at Spotos actually likes their job and they happen to be nice people! We look forward to seeing you again the next time you're in Palm Beach Gardens.
Food was good
Our waiter was great
Management came over several times to ask if everything was ok and when something was mentioned not being ok we were given excuses but problem never rectified so why bother asking if you’re not going to fix it.
Hi TraceyL, Thank you for the review! We'll certainly let your server know that his attention to detail added to your dining experience. Regarding your comment about a manager not fixing your problem... Could you please give me some specifics? We hope to see you again soon!
The food and service was excellent. Everyone was friendly and most accommodating.
Thank you for the 5* review and kind words! We hope to see you again soon!
Je suis française et j aime la nourriture.
Excellente expérience et je recommande vivement ce resto.
Merci! Votres parole aimables!
Have been going there for over 15 years. During the pandemic we even got Easter dinner to go. Dinned in about a month ago and they served bread with olive oil and garlic. Our last visit on Tuesday no bread? That's a deal breaker for me.
Hi Klink7, Thank you for your review and much valued patronage! We recently discovered that when we routinely give everyone Bread Service, a lot of it gets wasted. We made a decision that Bread Service will be available upon request. It is still our delicious (hot from the oven) Ciabatta Bread with House Made Freshly Roasted Garlic Oil. Simple fix....just ask for it!
A few glitches but we enjoyed our time together at a safe outside table.
Hi Debs, Thank you for the review! We appreciate that whatever the "glitches" were you were able to look at your experience as a whole and enjoy yourself. Thank you for mentioning that we have plenty of outdoor seating and we hope to see you again!
Great As Usual!
Hi MichaelF, Thank you for the 5* review, kind words and loyal support! We hope to see you again soon!

Please enjoy a five star experience at $$$ prices!!!!
Thank you for the 5* review! Everything served at Spotos Oyster Bar is delivered several times a week and it's fresh never frozen. Thank you for mentioning that! we look forward to seeing you again!
Our lunch was delicious. We chose to sit outside thinking it may be crowded inside. However, it was a bit too hot for that decision. Wish we had requested an inside seating. I recommend Spoto's and will definitely go again.
Hi JuanitaB, Thank you for mentioning that we serve lunch and have plenty of outdoor seating! Believe it or not, had you mentioned to your server that you were uncomfortable outside (due to the heat) we would have moved you inside if there was space available! We want all of our guests to leave well fed and happy! We look forward to your next visit! Did you know that we're open for Brunch on Sundays?
Loved it. Have been many times and Spotos is consistently fresh, delicious, artful presentation with warm and impeccable service. The premier seafood dining in the area.
Hi Briancm, First, thank you for your valued patronage especially at this time. Spotos is synonymous with Fresh Seafood and Fish! Everything is delivered daily from the cold pristine waters of the Northern Atlantic. Did you know that we recently hired a new Executive Chef?

Had a lovely lunch for a friend’s birthday. The manager treated us to complimentary prosecco and our server was lovely. Food was delicious with good accommodation for my gluten intolerance. The only missing piece was a dessert that fit into that category. Overall an excellent experience, even with the heat of early September on the patio.
Hi SharonM, Thank you for the beautiful review! It is our goal that every guest leave feeling the way you did! We look forward to seeing you again!

The best thing is the very fresh and well prepared seafood
Hi marciam, Thank you for the 5* review! As the only authentic Oyster Bar in the area, Spotos is synonymous with the best and freshest fish, seafood, and of course Oysters around! Nothing is frozen and everything is flown in fresh several times a week. Everything is from the cold pristine waters of the North Atlantic! We've also just hired a new Executive chef so everything that was great before is now even better! We hope to see you again soon!
My fiance and I went to a date night on Saturday. We expected a nice meal but we received a great meal, apparently the owner put a new chef on. He rocked it. We will be regulars again.
Hi RayB, Thank you for the 5* review! Did you know that Spotos Oyster Bar just won The Best Restaurant for Date Night by The Scout Guide Palm Beach? Yes, you're correct we do have a new Executive chef. Our Menus, Specialty Cocktails, and Wine List have all been improved and updated!

This was my first visit back to Spoto's since the Covid shutdown. I don't know how or why but it actually got better. We had the brunch menu and it was fabulous! Our Server was fast, attentive and knowledgeable. A great experience. I looked at the new Dinner menu and can't wait to come back.
Hi RayB, What a nice review! Believe it or not we have made several improvements since the beginning of Covid. We have a new Executive chef! With his input we updated all of our menus (including Brunch). Your old favorites are still here but they've been improved in both taste and presentation! Our Specialty Cocktails and Wine List have also gotten the "once over" and regarding Covid, we are doing everything we can to make you feel safe and comfortable! We look forward to seeing you again!
Worst service ever. 15 minutes after arriving, I had to ask the hostess for a waiter. Waiter came and took our order. An hour later, my wife’s order hadn’t arrived. A manager finally got her order for us to go. We will never go there again.
As always, very good
Hi LindaS, Thank you for the 5* review and loyal support. We hope to see you again soon!
Probably the best raw bar/ seafood restaurant that I have ever been to.
Exceptional quality food with very accomplished service
A real treat for Palm Beach county
Thank you for the 5* review and kind words! As the only authentic Oyster Bar in the area...Spotos is synonymous with the Freshest Oysters and Seafood! Our servers are held to some of the most rigorous standards in the industry AND they happen to be nice people! We look forward to your next visit and in the meantime why not follow us on FB and IG?
Food was excellent as was service!
Hi KarenW, Thank you for the 5* review and kind words! We look forward to serving you again.
Our server was very pleasant and attentive. I had the Seafood Rusticate which was very good. My wife has the Lobster and found it to be a bit overcooked. When asked how everything was, she mentioned that it was tough and the waitress immediately grabbed it and said they’d redo it. The manager came over and said that “the next one would come out the same way because they sell 25 or do a day and never had an issue” ... so she may want to order something else. She ordered the Filet Mignon and found it to be very good.
Hi Dave, We take every guest comment very seriously. At Spotos, it is always our goal that each guest leave well fed and happy and to that end will always try to accommodate you. The Manager suggested that your wife order something else because we prepare all of our lobsters ( sold 25 that day alone) exactly the same way without any complaint so the next one would be the same. We're glad she enjoyed the Filet!
The outdoor dining is very nice, with covering overhead.
Hi Pigeon, Thank you for the review! Yes, we have plenty of outdoor seating and most of it is covered. Thank you for mentioning it. We hope to see you again soon for the freshest seafood and oysters anywhere!
Waitress was simply not prepared for prime time. We spent a larger amount for a server who was just not in the right job!
Hi John, We take every guest comment very seriously. In order to address this appropriately, I would need more details. Please Private message me.
I was very impressed with how the staff maintained social distancing with regard to guest seating. Everyone err masks and were very helpful and happy to see their customers. The food, as usual, was wonderful! We can’t wait to return!
Hi Carolynne, Thank you for the 5* review, kind words, loyal support and mentioning all that we're doing to make you feel safe and comfortable. WE can't wait for your return!
