If you are looking for a special place in the area, this is it. This was the only really good restaurant for thirty years. Fine dining, well dressed customers, and beautifully plated food

I've been working in Palm Beach County for twelve years and living here for two years, had driven past Cafe Chardonnay for all that time and had never had dinner there. It always had a good reputation but, for some reason, we always passed it over for something else. Maybe it's because it's in a strip center and kind of... More

The service was less than friendly (except for the Hispanic bus boy who was very nice). The food was good but very expensive. I've certainly had better service and better food for prices as high as this. I would not go back again. There are too many other nice places to choose from in the area.

We have been going to this restaurant for the last 20 or so years, we are loyal customers and I was sent a $25 certificate by the restaurant to thank us for being loyal customers. The server pointed at the menu that they have a "Trio Summer Dinner". Many local restaurants do this during the summer since Palm beach is... More

Food was very average. For being the most expensive restaurant in PBG, I would have expected the food to have more of a wow factor. Service was average. Strip mall setting.... Average. Very disappointing.

The appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts are exquisite. Cafe Chardonnay compares favorably with the fine dining restaurants of Manhattan and San Francisco. Esoteric offerings, such as pear salad with warm goat cheese, to more typical plates, such as filet mignon, are all superb. While it's not a seafood restaurant, per se, it's fish entrees are "day fresh".

We got a BOGO dinner so had to check it out. The bread and hummus/ pesto was super addicting.. we may have overdone it a bit. Our meals were hot and flavorful and the service was on point. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine as well.. then shared a cheesecake desert. The ambiance is very romantic so dress up... More

Our party of six was wowed by our meals. It's rare to find such uniformity of opinion. We had the following meals: beef short ribs, tandoori chicken, duck, rack of lamb, cioppino, and a vegetarian platter that they were kind enough to whip up on the fly. Pete, our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive. This was a memorable experience. Chardonnay... More

Wonderful dinner and wonderful service from our waiter Tom. Lovely ambience. We were in the area for a week and ate out each evening, it was our favorite.
