“Great Place...”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

This is a new restaurant in Delray...or maybe I should say that Atlantic Ocean Club was renamed? It has been known as SpoonFed for about four months according to our waiter... It is very trendy, and is on Atlantic Avenue...the upbeat street in Delray Beach, where everything happens...It is located in the same area as the Buddha Sky bar and is owned by the same owners...
It has a real Mediterranean feel to it...turquoise and white color scheme..The decor inside is stunning....but the place to be is on the pavement...so you can see the world go by!
The staff are all pleasant and professional...They serve..Brunch,Lunch and Dinner....
We stopped by for Brunch....One criticism that I have is that their menu has peculiar pricing.. for example,they start with a basic like French toast and then charge an extra $1 for the syrup....For a place that creates an impression of opulence this makes them seem stingy. When you order French Toast you expect syrup with it...so why not just charge what they have to, in order to cover the cost of the syrup?
The food was well presented and delicious, even though slightly more expensive than other Breakfast places in Delray...
The atmosphere and the staff definitely made it worthwhile...so I will most certainly go back to try something else...

“Cutting too many corners.”
Reviewed December 11, 2011

We took our Mom there for a birthday lunch. I ordered the Lobster Eggs Benedict. The "lobster" was that nasty red rubbery stuff from the claws. The potatoes were those horrid frozen patties, like the ones at McDonald's for 99 cents, except this dish was $19.00. They chopped them up, presumably to throw the diner off the track, but alas someone forgot to chop up one half of the characteristic ovals...I think these are cheap tricks and when charging 19 bucks for basically 2 eggs, one should at least pretend to give a rip when it's mentioned to the manager. Just sayn...also for the record, 3 slices of bread in the basket, no refills. Our Arnold Palmers, no refills. Cheap may help pay the light bill, but its not bringing customers in. Certainly not this one, fool me once...

“Amazing find in beautiful Delray Beach!!”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Went to SpoonFed on our anniversary trip to Delray Beach. This restaurant was recommended by the owner of a local gallery as we were shopping. What a surprise!
May have been the best meal we have ever had "anywhere" and we travel quite a bit both in the US and abroad. These folks have it down. Food was superbly cooked and presented.
The waiter was both friendly and knowledgeable with excellent recommendations. The Caprese salad with Stracchino cheese is a must. I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was perfection. Sitting outside under the stars on a beautiful evening made the experience even better. Go there!!

“This is a very popular place...”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

This is a very popular place and quite busy. We had to ask a manager to get our waiter to take our order. The good is good and so are the prices. If you're not in a hurry....try it!
