Stopped here first on our trip to the garden. Waiter was very friendly and fast with our drink order. Food came out even quicker. Hit the chicken bowl and beef bowl! Both are amazing and taste sooo good! Looks like small portions but believe me you will be stuffed when you are done. We sat outside to enjoy the view!... More

Have not been disappointed here. Expectations are set in terms of the overall price and the level to which the place is aiming. We find it dependably very good and still deserving of an Excellent rating, judged by the certainty we shall return regularly

We had lunch here after touring the Morikami Gardens and were grateful for the cool breeze in the covered dining veranda. The menu is quite extensive and very reasonably priced. My husband had the fish special which he thoroughly enjoyed. I had the Miso soup and the appetizer which included mini crab cakes. The service was prompt and very friendly.... More

Were I rating this based solely on the food I would have given the restaurant a lesser rating but the location and view make up for so much that I see this as a must go place in Delray Beach. The Marikami gardens there are so exquisite that no visit to this area is complete without at least a view... More

It has been over two years since I reviewed Cornell Cafe and after reading my original review I am happy to say nothing has changed. They still serve wonderful food on an outdoor veranda overlooking the beautiful Morikami gardens. With good service, great food at fair prices and a great view, I can still recommend Cornell for a most pleasant... More

My husband is not a foodie. He ordered the mango chutney chicken with rice and loved it. I ordered the bento box and it was amazing! It give you a little taste of many of the menu items. The price was fair and the food fresh. We had to wait a little before we were seated but it was worth... More

This restaurant within the compound and overlooking the Morikami Japanese Garden, is mostly non-vegetarian but there is one mighty good vegan / vegetarian dish: Asian Eggplant. One other that was very well done was the Vegetable Gyoza (dumpling). Do take into account that the restaurant is only for visitors of the garden (no walk-ins) and that lunch time during season...

Honestly, the Morikami could get away with having an okay to decent restaurant since the grounds are so beautiful. However, they have really complemented the whole Japanese feel by having this great little cafe. It's reasonably priced, they have a pretty wide selection of food, and it makes for the perfect place to get a bite when you're at the... More

Very reasonably price Japanese cafe. I had salmon sushi that was very fresh, my friend had chicken curry that was quite tasty. In addition the surrounding is very soothing if you sit outside.
