City Place-Rosemary's Square has had a heck of a time this past year staying alive and relevant to WPB, at large. Even before the pandemic, businesses have closed at an alarming rate, not to mention the restoration project that seemed to drag on for months....Well, pine no more for the good 'ole days, a new restaurant has opened that promises to restore some of the charm and savoir-faire that drew many of us to this locale a few years back: High Dive. Not sure how the name evolved, but this restaurant has the potential to become the new " it place" like many before it. Although working from a scaled-back Covid mandated menu, the well-trained staff really turned in an exceptional dinner. Our waiter, Oliver, was steeped in how to speak to and of a restaurant's value-added when it comes to what choices could meet the demands of a persnickety group. He is a about the coolest waiter I have encountered in a long time: perfect diction, command of how to answer penetrating questions, and mastery of how to recommend the best dishes for us. He read our group like a book. The calamari was real calamari, not this fake stuff one finds in many other restaurants. The clam chowder, I would rate as one of the top five chowders I've had in my nearly 3/4 of a century. Oh! and the six raw oysters set the tone: plump, just the right amount of brine, fresh and garnished with a French melodious dip I have never experienced, but want to again. The food is well-priced and worth every penny. Selections of wine, including a superb Malbec that was delightful and plentiful in the pour. We really appreciated Oliver and the staff's attention to detail in the way they handled the food and silverware, mindful of Covid's lingering threat. This enhanced our level of comfort dining out, and emboldened us to stay for dessert.More

Right now they have a limited menu but I found some great selections. What a fantastic restaurant!!! I had the Prince Edward Island Mussels in an incredible sauce for an appetizer and the Mahi for my entree. Wow I cannot wait to go back

I just purchased & have eaten the Saturday night dinner for 4. I treated my neighbors, who ate at their house. The grouper was perfection! The beet salad exceptional! The kale was scrumptious & who ever thought that would be a description of kale. Please...do yourself a favor and support this restaurant. I’m still being cautious and eating at home. I will order from High Dive again.More

Their to-go meals during this coronavirus crises are fantastic. Plenty of food for 2 and the price is very reasonable. They have different options every week.

We loved going to High Dive in person and decided to try the family meals they are offering while restaurant dining rooms are closed. It was outstanding! We had brisket, potato salad, pickled vegetables, biscuits, and banana pudding and they were all fantastic. And it...was a great deal - we got the $39 for two people and it was enough for 3. We also ordered a bottle of wine to round out our meal and it was lovely! They brought the food down to our car and put it directly in so we had no contact. I HIGHLY recommend it now and when things open back up! Support local businesses and don't forget to tip!More

High Dive Missed The Mark. Beautiful atmosphere with excellent service. Delicious drinks and dishes that were delightful. Very small quantities with a large price tag. I had the scallops that were literally 2. It was the size of a tapas plate. My husband and my...friend had the burger. Small double patties that had incredible flavor. My girlfriend ordered the octopus salad again very small portions. Cocktails were fabulous spicy mezcal beverage and the other frothy pisco sour was just as delish. I gave four circles because it was delicious each item ordered but the prices and the portions are ridiculous. Probably wouldn’t return.More

Very impressed by the quality of kitchen and wait staff here and the price point is fair. The beet salad, the seafood waffle and local fish options were great. The steak surprisingly good.

The stars are trying to align for High Dive's seafood-centric eatery, in the slot that Boston's long-missed Legal Seafood once occupied. Why three? You'll see. Rosemary Square's rebuild has decimated their restaurant choices. So they open doors in the culinary Sahara with a strong menu...and a solid craft bar. Inconsistent food, at inexcusably high prices, is what they need to work on. The lobster roll is the third best I've ever had. $32 good, though? Reds, in Wiscasset, Maine, about $22. About the same for Luke's in NYC. Both are larger portions. People eating here come from up north, mainly. You think they don't know from Lobstah roll prices? Their take on blanketed shrimp? A solid 8. I get better at Joy Noodle, for half the price. The oysters are the best thing that I've tried. The house hot sauce, and strawberry sauce are brilliant. Prices are close to City Oyster and Spoto's. Their fisherman's stew? Multiple fails. The fish and shellfish were well cooked, but it was plated and sat for awhile. Tepid is not a way to serve a stew. It's supposed to be a saffron "nage" which is the add $13 to the dish pretentious way of saying "broth" although a "nage" is a poaching broth, rarely served, and most often as more of an accompaniment to a larger piece of fish. As for the saffron, alleged to have been in the dish, the pistils are very aromatic. Not a detectable aromatic trace. The "nage" for the stew is thin, and oily. Stew suggests some body not present here. They include a ton of grilled bread with it, but the bitterness of the grilling doesn't blend well with the "nage." A nice fresh sourdough would give some tart offset to the monochromatic spice notes of the "nage." The deconstructed blueberry lemon pie was excellent. Could have stood with a couple more blueberries for balance, but otherwise top-drawer. The bar cocktails were great, and Taylor and Kayla were both wonderful. Service was excellent, overall. 1/2 dozen oysters. Two drinks. Stew. Dessert. $110. $5.35 to park? Not so wonderful. I think this restaurant has something important to contribute to the community. I'm really sorry that they decided to open up in some of the most expensive real estate in West Palm Beach. It certainly can't be helping the alarmingly high prices any. I think, for many people, unless ownership finds a little better price point for some of the smaller plates, it's going to be a place that locals without trust funds, or business empires, frequent less. Not sure how the Palm Beach Islanders, who usually snub Rosemary Square, will climb up to the dive board here. Once they, and the million dollar seasonal homeowners, down in El Cid, head back to their perches up North, it's going to be too pricey for the year-rounds to give it roots, and longevity. This is their third week. I would like to come back and see that they've made some improvements in the kitchen. That they have some balance in price performance to the neighborhood around them. Otherwise, I fear that this high dive is into a glass of water, which is going to be very painful for the people who put it together, who were hoping to make a big splash.More

Close to the movie theatre on the second level of Rosemary Square, this establishment was bustling. There were tables outdoors, but we were lucky to get a booth in the indoor dining room that was handsomely decorated with a diving theme including a photo of...bathing beauties of years past and an attractive octopus tiled wall. Small plates with an emphasis on seafood is this restaurant’s specialty. An array of cocktails, beers, and wines were also listed on the menu. Our server was very pleasant and eager to please. We started with a tuna poke that was fabulous. The combination of sliced pear, sweet onion, and other ingredients made this dish stand out. The scallops ceviche was topped with a dollop of caviar and served in a scallop shell. Lovely to look at and very tasty too, it wasn’t too filling. However, the fried eggplant and an order of fried polenta were plentiful. Served with an adorable honey jar and wooden implement, the eggplant was crispy and the seasoned honey complimented this dish to a tee. The polenta sticks were cooked to perfection as well. The cracking red shrimp was another favorite of ours. Each one was quite big and encased in a fried thin crispy wrap that was so yummy that we put in a second order along with another tuna poke. Although there were some entrees listed on the menu, such as, fish, steak, and even hamburgers, we were too full to even think about anything else to eat. Judging from a full dining room, it looks like this will be a very successful addition to Rosemary Square.More
