“Lovely for Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

The trip map/address we were following wasn't correct so we had to hunt a bit on foot for Joseph's but we are so glad we did. The atmosphere is delightful - small with well detailed European style decor and the food and service was 5 star. But the real star is Joseph who graciously made us feel like honored guests. He is from Lebanon and he lived in France and met his wife there so we exchanged some pleasantries in French since it fit the food and the bistro feel. The lobster bisque was superb and be prepared for a large portion, We then split a Greek salad and a panini with prosciutto and fresh mozzarella and herbs - delicious. Joseph's son runs a restaurant across the street so we will try that next. We are coming back to try the impressive wine list and dinner.

“A delightful Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We visited this restaurant based on other reviews and were not disappointed. Joseph greeted us at the door and instantly made us feel very welcome in this relatively small and intimate restaurant. The food was delicious but it was the personal service that was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. We took our children with us (16, 14 & 8), who were equally welcomed. My youngest is the fussiest eater and I felt Joseph would have made my son absolutely anything he wanted. I recommend the hummus for starters which is home made and delicious. I also had the chicken "kebobs" (also served with hummus if you didn't have it as a starter) which were very tender. My compliments to Joseph - he deserves the many Zagat awards on his wall.

“Fine dining in Delray.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Visiting from NJ and wanted to treat the parents to a fine dining experience this past weekend and was not let down! Joseph runs a cozy and friendly establishment where he will wait on you himself. If it's raining he'll run outside with an umbrella for you. The food is excellent; the presentation beautiful. Had the Tuna -- delicious. Others had the Duck and Salmon and were very pleased. Desserts....Chocolate cake and Tiramisu shared by all and wonderful. Supposedly desserts made by Joseph's wife! While this is not an inexpensive restaurant, for the quality of food and service you will receive it is well worth it. You will not be disappointed!!!
