“The Best For The Buck”
Reviewed October 18, 2011

This restaurant is part of the International Culinary School, At The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Please get directions because it is with-in the school and somewhat difficult to locate. Parking is available. Dinner and Lunch is served on Thursday and Friday ONLY. Make reservations on Wednesday only. This is an experiance ! You get 3 courses of quality food made and served by the advanced students in a center room surrounded by classes behind glass. The food is EXCELLENT and so resonable. It's $18.00 per person for dinner. This is near the cryuise ship area and just worth everyones trip for it. Great food, great prices, excellent service in a clean/sparse environment that you can dress casual for. PS: Credit cards welcome, but tipping is cash.

“Don't miss Chef's Palette”
Reviewed October 6, 2011

The Chef's Palette is part of the Culinary School at the Ft. Lauderdale Art Institute on 17th St. The meals are prepared by the students, served by the students and under the supervision of the School Chef. There is a nice selection of appetizers, entree and desserts. It is well worth the price, around $20 for a three course dinner. Beer and wine are also served. It was our second time to enjoy the restaurant and we will return again when in FLL.

“Fun dinner at a Culinary School”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

Only open for lunch and dinner two days a week, this culinary school serves up some great food. I could not find many reviews but we decided to take a chance and give it a try. We were seated right in front of the glass lined kitchen where we could watch the student chefs and their teachers cook the three course meal which I really enjoyed. Three courses for less than $20 for dinner! The cerviche was complex and wonderful, and we all enjoyed the lobster pasta dish. The key lime pound cake was a fun twist on a key lime dessert and a favorite. It is a smaller dining room, so reservations would probably be a good idea, but we just walked in and were seated right away. The menu is posted outside and there are about 5 options for the day for entrees, about the same for appetizers and desserts. A very fun meal, I would surely go again. They take credit cards, but be sure and leave your server a cash tip to be nice.

“FABULOUS LUNCH”
Reviewed July 22, 2011

Totally love watching these creative and talented young men and women learn their trade.
Couldn't have had a better lunch. Always greeted with a professional warm and friendly attitude. Our brand new student did a fine job on his second day at school. Our group had delicious fish(grouper) and Flat Iron Steak. The corn soup and tomato and peach salad was flavorful and fresh. Now let's talk dessert. The chocolate dessert was decadent memorable... 3 hours later I am still smiling. Thank you Chef's Palette for a wonderful afternoon.
