“Excellent service and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

The service was friendly,professional and extremely accommodating! Shortly after arriving the assistant manager, Tom, stopped at our table and made our visit very welcoming. The waiter Stefan was excellent, very prompt , efficient and equally as friendly. Tom once again visited our table to ensure the ultimate of competency.The food was so delicious from the stacked eggplant appetizer, coffee crusted ribeye to monkey bread dessert! I look forward to returning for lunch and trying the short rib grilled cheese sandwich! Bravo!

“Good food, pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

501 is the casual restaurant in the five-star (or is it 4.5?) Boca Raton Hotel and Resort. The menu is varied, with enough unusual dishes to pique any diners interest. We particularly enjoyed the fish of the day, the spareribs, the shrimp and grits, tuna tartare, and the fried chicken (without the maple syrup glaze). The burger and soups are also excellent. The desserts are enormous-- the extremely rich cocoanut cake was enough to feed four. Drinks are also ample, as is the wine list. The decor is eclectic, left over from a high-priced steakhouse experiment that went wrong, but there is a large and pleasant outdoor seating area which is perfect on mild Florida evenings. Prices are moderate and the comfort level (including the food) is high.

“Unexpected Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

You're in Florida at a resort with a lot of Spanish influence in the architecture, everything is essentially in character with the rest of the resort until... you get to the top of the stairs and walk into this place. It's a trip -- lots of glass, chrome, and eclectic elements. It's like leaving the resort and going somewhere totally different, except you only had to walk across a driveway to get there.

Our server was ever-so-cheerful, which was a nice change from the cranky bartender we'd dealt with the night before. It was tricky to decide what to pick on the menu because everything looked good. My salad was excellent.

“Slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Food was above average, however it took the kitchen 45 mins to churn out a couple of burgers. We were a party of 2 in a nearly empty restaurant.

Restaurant is nicely appointed and there are multiple TVs so you can watch the game. Not great value for money, but it's a hotel restaurant so good value is not expected (at least by me).

I would go here again if I ever stay at this Boca Resort, but I would never go out of my way to eat here.
