Quite enjoyed the ambiance and the presence of a talented pianist / vocalist who was there but did not overwhelm table conversation. The complete experience from the bar to the table was comfortable and pleasant for all. The Chesterfield is a piece of old, stately Palm Beach. Will return when I am in-town again.

Lovely restaurant, but crazy noise level, especially by those who want to be heard above the live music which is loud and highly energetic. This place is excelent if you don't want to have comfortable conversation.

Went here with 8 friends. The music was great, 80's the night we were there. Not too loud but loud enough to hear from where we were sitting. The food was very good moderately priced for the area. The service was excellent.

I have been to the Leopard Lounge a number of times. Unfortunately this last time, on Christmas day of 2017, did not provide as good an experience as other times. The service wasn't great (the server seemed overworked), and the food was not the quality that I expected. Three of us (out of five) had prime rib, but only one came with au jus -- meaning that the other two tasted dry. We requested au jus for the other two plates, but by the time it came, the prime rib had gotten cold. The menu was price fixe, which meant that the selection was rather limited. The decor, of course, was exceptional, and that salvaged the experience. But at over $800 for five people we expected a bit more.

Here's what I don't understand. We were attending Christmas Eve Day Mass in Palm Beach and looking for a place to have dinner either before or after so I looked on OpenTable, there was not a lot available but I particularly wanted to go to the Chesterfield Hotel (Leopard Lounge) as it is quite quaint and cozy. But, there was nothing available (supposedly) except a 5:30 and 5:45 p.m. Naturally, I thought the restaurant must be fully booked for the evening and would be bustling with activity and Christmas Cheer. Not so. In fact, when we arrived there was only 2 other tables occupied..one with a family obviously staying there and one with an obnoxious man and a mortified wife (?). When we left after dinner 2 hours later, only one other party had arrived. The place was deserted. We thought perhaps there had been a mandatory evacuation on Palm Beach or at least...a mandatory evacuation of the Chesterfield Hotel/Leopard Lounge and we had't gotten the alert. Hmmm...can't help but feel we were gamed by the OpenTable reservation system into an early dinner...and an expensive fixed price one at that. Never again.

In town for a family wedding; Chesterfield Hotel is a favorite. Continental breakfast came with our room rate, which was an excellent choice: self-serve except for hot cooked oatmeal, European and American selections are of good variety and thank you for the plain yogurt! If one does not select the Continental option, you have a US$10 credit toward menu items (check your bill: ours went from $60+ to $28 with the correction). The Eggs Benedict and French Toast were both excellent. The best part of the dining experience is the courtyard itself. Relaxing and restorative, as is staying st the Chesterfield.

The Leopard Lounge is our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach. Beautiful period decor, fine food, ambience and live music. If your have “fine taste” and can afford it, you will be very content at The Leopard Lounge.

We went on a Tuesday night, and although the restaurant was not full, the food was AMAZING, and the bar scene really lively. I loved the piano player/singer. It's definitely a treasure in Palm Beach, and I hope others enjoy it as much as I did.

We have been coming here for a number of years. This time the band was as noisy as a rock concert. We were far away from the music and still found it hard to have a conversation with our table. We asked for the music to be turned down a bit, to no avail. It will be a long time until we go back. Too bad.

Went for "Flavor Palm Beach" menu was offered right up front along with their normal menu. This was one of the pricier restaurants but worth every cent. Service was excellent on this evening but even though the bar area was busy there were few diners in the restaurant proper. The food from the first course on was outstanding. My appetizer crab cake was large enough to add a salad and call it a meal. The filet mignon was perfect and cooked exactly as ordered. Chocolate lava cake with ice cream was our chosen dessert, extremely rich and very decadent. We dine out frequently and very few go completely as expected, but the Leopard Lounge nailed a perfect meal.

Had the Afternoon Tea at the Hotel once and noticed the restaurant which looked really cool. Turns out the food is really good as well. The décor is in a word 'swanky', kind of old Palm Beach but in a good way. It's dark and romantic. There's even some light dancing if you choose and the piano player was a perfect accompaniment. Turns out we went on a Prime rib Tuesday which was delicious and a great value. Lobster risotto also perfect. Special Occasion for us and
with the service, the beautiful room and the food it couldn't have been better at the Lounge.

Been staying @ The Chesterfield for years and have always taken at least one meal during our long (4 day/3 night) weekends in The Leopard Lounge. We've never been disappointed with the food or service! This past weekend we created a party of 15 for Staurday dinner and heard no complaints from anyone (including as to the live music)! The service was courteous, professional, and prompt. The food was exceptional! Next year we'll double our party size!
