I was so surprised at this menu, I assumed others who previously dined here would be commenting on it. I see 2 reviewers in March this year, one in particular, hit the nail on the head. I, too, have been coming here since it was the Ritz. Their newer menu is now Mediterranean/Middle Eastern/Greek, which I generally enjoy. But I mean literally every, single item on the lunch menu. So strange for a hotel’s main restaurant to offer this menu to presumably a broad spectrum of people. The old menu had grilled fish, turkey club with avocado, sautéed chicken breast with arugula- delicious. This is only Mediterranean that is so heavily seasoned, so salty, I don’t know who this appeals to. Service was very good but wouldn’t return until they change this menu.

Absolutely wonderful brunch, beautiful presentation, every bite delicious. We loved the bubbly and Bloody Mary bar.
The ambiance and service couldn’t have been better

Great food & Incredible atmosphere. However, the portion size on the fish (trout, I believe) was very paltry (maybe 4 - 6 oz?). This would have been fine for an appetizer, but certainly not for an entrée. Comparatively, my wife had the rack of lamb, which was very large in portion.

For the cost of the buffet, one would expect more of a selection, one item on carving station..would expect at least 2...add a fish as well. Desert station...just blah...
One Sunday brunch to take a look at is the Setai in Miami Beach, they do it right!
Missing a little creativity n this buffet.

Temple Orange is beautiful. The decor and scenery was amazing. We had outstanding service. The food display was nice but that’s where it ended. The food was ok but not great. I had a made to order omelette which was done very well but that was it. The food was not hot and most was not warm. Most was tasteless. They had mini stone crabs with a terrible mustard sauce and you could not get the meat out. Hugh shrimp that were tough. It was an additional charge for bottomless mimosa so I had only one and I’m glad I did. It definitely not worth the money.

The service was excellent with several servers/attendants coming to our table at various times throughout the night. However, my wife's dish, Seafood Scampi was not very good. The shrimp and scallops were perfectly cooked and very tasty, but the linguini pasta quickly congealed into a large mass which was hard to twist onto a fork and had a bland taste. Everything else was fine though.

Hi! Josen was an incredible server. We are from the area and still think $18 glasses of wine is too high. But besides that it was great and no complaints.

I eat here a lot. Buffet breakfast is great ($38). Sunday brunch is very good but expensive ($65) Sunday brunch usually has a great guitar player Arturo Romey whom we love and come to hear also on Friday evenings. Service is great and very professional. Outdoor seating has great view too of pool and ocean. Free valet parking when they stamp your parking pass. This is a very relaxing restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner or brunch.

Took a friend there for lunch for her birthday. The surroundings And service was excellent however other than the desert the main meal was not up to expectations. My guest could not eat her meal. Half of mine was good the rest of it I couldn’t even eat. They accommodated us with a reduction in our bill which was very nice on their part however I don’t think I’ll be going there again very soon

We had a fabulous evening at Temple Orange last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food and level of service was phenomenal, and the pastry chef surprised us with a scrumptious dessert that was the perfect ending to a wonderful meal. I highly recommend Temple Orange for any occasion. You won’t be disappointed.

Service was horrible and I will not be returning. I have never seen so much staff looking busy and not tending to patrons. You expect at a buffet at an establishment on this caliber the following 1) offer you something to drink when they bring you water and tell you to help yourself to the buffet 2) clear your plate when done and 3) check on you within 10 minutes of bringing you your check...none of this happened and frankly I received better service at casual dining restaurant. It was a manager that cleared our plates and whom I needed to ask for a glass of wine and then had to ask a different manager for my second glass. My expectations are not off base, we regularly dine at both casual and fine dining restaurants and this was just BAD.

Greek salad was just a salad with some olives thrown in nothing special. If you want a piece of bread with dinner it’s $7. Drinks are tiny. Just expensive mediocre food

Very nice restaurant in this elegant hotel. Not the most expensive restaurant in the hotel, but expensive enough. Dinner for four was over $200 with moderate alcohol intake. Food was very well prepared but not innovative. Absolutely beautiful setting with opportunity for outdoor dining if the weather cooperates (was very warm, humid and windy when we were there, so ate indoors.

We were celebrating my birthday. When one of us received a meal that did not appear to be as described and had too much heavy tomato sauce for her to eat, the restaurant was more than willing to make a change and did so very quickly. The three meals we had were very very good. The service was excellent. The view from their patio of the ocean and pool was lovely. All in all a very lovely experience.

Food just wasn't good. It looked nice, but tasteless. Both of us agreed. We
would not return unless new chef. Lovely view, quiet because no one else
was there for lunch. (2 tables only occupied the entire time we were there. That's
a clue.)

Had a very enjoyable dinner. The service was excellent, a manager came by a few times to ask
about our meal and was very friendly. The menu was
very interesting and prepared to perfection. We sat outside on the terrace and the overall mood and vibe was absolutely perfect. We will go again.. every time we visit Eau Palm Beach we enjoy all their restaurants.. great job!

Worst ever, items offered on the menu, then ordered. Only to be told they don’t serve it on Mondays, a resort no less.
Who doesn’t offer bread (of any kind) at lunch with a salad?
Great environment, ruined by lax service and terrible communication.

The ambience and service are first class. Unfortunately , the food is not well prepared and overpriced for food quality, but not service. The pappardelle with half lobster featured a pea pesto that was tepid , unflavorful and lacked spices.The tiny half lobster was broiled a bit too long. No bread is served, but a very good fooccio is available for a price. The risotto was fine, the ragu of short rib ok, but not as flavorful as the ones I have had.The pasta was very heavy and I believe homemade , but lacked the quality of others. Seafood sampler was very good, as was the seafood salad. The greek salad was a travesty--no feta , a few olives, mini half tomato, and mostly lettuce. So Temple Orange restaurant needs a new master chef.

Great seafood mezza followed by the charred octopus. Really amazing and creative. My husband had the bronzino which was the best he’s ever had. I had an awesome filet that was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Desert was sweet but not overwhelming. Service was impeccable and friendly.

I have dined at this restaurant, or its predecessors when the Eau was a Ritz Carlton, for at least 20yrs. I believe that they very recently put in place a new menu. It appears that the restaurant’s objective was some sort of nouveau-like cafe with foods from Greece, Italy, and Spain (open table menu is incorrect but hotel/restaurant website menu is correct). The food is universally heavy and laden with being over thought. The soup- a kale and bean soup - is so heavily salted that it seems like salt with small amount of soup added. It was indelible. The vegetables are cooked fine but the cauliflower was tasteless. The selections are narrow and generally obscure. As an entrepreneur and former restaurant owner, I would strongly advise that Temple Orange would be prudent to cut its losses and revert to their old menu that worked well across generations of patrons with different eating sensibilities.
What a shame!

Well I have to say we were disappointed. Temple Orange is one of our favorite places to dine. We probably go every couple of weeks. Now, the menu has changed and it is not great. Imagine a Restaurant on the ocean with only 2 fish choices; Mackerel and Bronzini. No local snapper, no local Grouper, no local anything. The menu was an odd mix of Greek, Italian and Spanish foods. Of course the staff and the location are still outstanding. Hopefully the chef will think local and ocean and change the menu. 5 stars for staff and location. 3 for food.

Extremely overpriced for very small portions. Staff overly solicitous but the food could use some attention, rather than so many high level management roaming between the tables
Beautiful setting
