Nice upscale restaurant

We have been eating at Cafe Chardonnay about four times a year for over ten years. The food is a little pricy, but is consistently good. The only reason for four stars and not five is that some of the servers are excellent and some are just fair.

I should preface this review by stating that earlier in the week we had dined at Cafe Boulud in Palm Beach and enjoyed a perfect evening. We anticipated a comparable experience at Cafe Chardonnay given both are at similar price points. Regrettably, our dining experience at Cafe Chardonnay was a near total disappointment! The salad was ehh. Fresh and all,... More

Although this is my first review of the restaurant, we have been coming here for lunch for years. If it was closer to home, we would come more frequently. The food has always been excellent, the service is extraordinary and the atmosphere is very pleasant. The prices at lunch are very reasonable for the quality and the service.

Garden Square Shoppes is very convenient - breakfast at The Boulevard Restaurant, shop for groceries at Publix, have lunch at Paddy Mac's, or dinner at Outback Steakhouse. There are also lots of interesting specialty shops, a couple of banks to choose from, etc...

We had dinner and ordered a bottle of wine and they charge 4 glasses if a bottle which actually costs more. Salads were large and very good. I had the shrimp app and shrimp good but bread under them was like a rock. All the entrees were very good and large. Fish was tender and steak cooked perfectly.

Atmosphere - 4 stars Food - 1.5 stars Service - 3 stars Value/Price- 1.5 star The food quality was disappointing. The rack of lamb and shrimp entrees, for example, were bland. Expected much better. I would have been better off at Outback around the strip mall. The atmosphere was good. Lovely bar and the place had energy. Our waiter was... More

Beautiful restaurant with tasty food, nice atmosphere, & friendly, professional service. I had steak; my friend had seafood. Both were nicely presented and tasted delicious. We dined at the bar. The main dining area is a great destination for a quiet, romantic dinner. Would definitely revisit when I am back in the area!

Great food, imaginatively and well prepared. Service was excellent! They even use crumb knives! Yippee! Civilization. Wine list is aggressive and over-priced, but broad. Many bring their own bottle. Every bite was a pleasure. If you want to splurge, both food and money, this is for you.
