Nothing better then slow roasted, fork tender duck which I ordered. It was served with a steak knife, bad sign. 2 bites and I told the waiter it was tough. He immediately, without hesitation, picked up the plate and said pick something else, he did not offer another duck. I picked a fish dish which was good, but I went... More

Tracy took great care of us today; and we were warmly greeted at the door immediately, even though we were early for lunch. The fish was heavenly: my salmon was served warm yet rare; just the way I like it. Hubby's yellow tail snapper was macadamia crusted and yummy! Usually, I don't both with bread, but Cafe Chardonnay has warm... More

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

We go here several times a season and always happy with quality and quantity of the food, service is good and a very lively bar scene in season very busy and noisy

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".
