“Still Pretty Darn Good”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Seven of us celebrated a birthday here on June 10th. Everyone left feeling very good about the meals. Mushroom strudel and onion soup were tasty appetizers. One person said her lobster and scallop entree was the best meal she ever had in South Florida. Two people had the skirt steak and relished it. Person not feeling well took home most of the rack of lamb, which looked good to the rest of us. One diner said Bouillabaisse was terrific. Other two people praised their prawn scampi. Tried apple pie a la mode and amondjoy(??) cake for dessert and enjoyed them, too. Service was average at best for this lever of restaurant; we didn't want a "hoverer," but waiter was hard to find at times. Place is noisy and crowded, even off-season. But, it's well worth an occasional visit, based upon our experience. Expect to spend about $75 per person with some wine (good selection), plus tax and tip. I only gave the place three dollar signs because TripAdvisor says to leave those off.

“Wonderful restaurant now relying only on past reputation”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Long time favorite upscale restaurant, now relying on its laurels. Recent birthday visit was a disaster, rude inattentive waiter, slow service, okay food, and to top it off after spending $400 bucks for 4 of us, we were asked to leave, because they" needed the table," while we lingered over our wine. Owner Frank Eucallito either doesn't know how his staff treats longtime customers or he doesn't care because the place always seems crowded. Very disappointing experience for us and our two friends who were celebrating a 66th birthday.

“Great local favorite”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Mothers day brunch was outstanding. A nice selection of meals and beverages all reasonably priced. The atmosphere and cleanliness was exceptional. The wait staff and host made us feel welcome and that they appreciated our business. Meal presentation was excellent despite it being brunch.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We went to Chardonnay for Mothers Day. The food was not worth the price and did not get served in a timely fashion. Our server was not very warm and friendly. Given the price, I would call the experience very disappointing.
