“Among the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We've been to Maison Carlos before. A few years ago, on Valentines Day, one of the most trying days of the year in the restaurant business. Then, as now, the service was flawless, the food sublime, and the experience delightful. Nothing has changed in the past few years. Maison Carlos continues to hold its own against the very best in North Palm Beach County.

Our evening of culinary delights began with complimentary zucchini chips. Freshly made, crispy, and slightly salty. Among our appetizers one standout is the Soufflé de Fromage. Fluffy and delicious. The main course of Truffled Lobster” Mac and Cheese was a surprisingly large portion with good sized chunks of fresh Maine lobster meat and extremely rich mac and cheese with truffles. Almost too rich to eat and certainly too much to finish. The Scallopini di Vitello Picatta and the steak and fries were also well done and worth ordering.

The service at this restaurant is professional, friendly and efficient. The dining room itself is somewhat spare. It is elegant in its own way, but I think could use somewhat more warmth. Maison Carlos is off of the beaten path, on a main North-South road, heavily trafficked and surrounded with nondescript retail establishments. Maison Carlos t is definitely worthwhile finding. You'll have some of the best food this part of Florida has to offer.

“Best Veal Dish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

It was the best meal that we had that week on vacation in Palm Beach. My wife and I both had veal dishes and we both decided that it was the best veal (tender) we had every had. The vegetables were cooked to perfection

“Remains one of Palm Beach's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Personal welcome from Carlos, always great food, classy even intimate setting, excellent service and reasonable prices. Menu focuses on italian---veal piccata and penne bolognese are terrific. Wine list modest, not extensive. Simple formula---great food, good service, warm hospitality. We visit regularly.
