“Nothing to write home about”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

We often seek out new places to dine. Sometimes they're great, sometimes they're a dump and other times they're like Grimaldi's, OK but nothing worth going out of you way.

During our visit service was painfully slow. I honestly thought maybe they had lost our order. Refills on my soda where hard to come by. When the waitress finally recognized my soda was virtually empty, it took approx. 10 minutes for them to bring the refill. As they took my glass I didn't even have ice to chew on.

The Pizza lacked adequate cheese to cover the entire pie. At first it looked as if they'd put whole tomatoes on the pizza. In reality it was large areas devoid of cheese where the sauce was showing.

The price was reasonable enough for this location. Currently $14 for a medium cheese pizza. They charge $2 to $4 per topping. This charge applies to each topping, even if you ask for only 1/2 the pizza to have a topping. So if you want a 1/2 pepperoni and 1/2 sausage, you'll pay for 2 additional toppings instead of 1.

While it wasn't bad there are better options for lunch or dinner in the area. It's cheap enough I'd only consider eating here again if I was on a budget and didn't want to drive somewhere else. Otherwise, I'll skip it next time.

“Definitely Upscale Pizza”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Our family chose this location for our daughter and son-in-law's 25th anniversary get together.
It was our first visit. What a delight. We had a designated large-party area surrounded by
floor to ceiling windows looking out over the Intracoastal lined with huge yachts. We also had a table just for the children in our party. The unique and delicious gourmet pizzas were served buffet style after an appetizer and choice of three salads. This was followed by a perfect cannoli. There was a full beverage assortment that included wine or beer. If you've never tasted a garlic/artichoke pizza, this is the place o try it. We'll be back.

“Great gourmet pizza”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is not your "average" pizza joint. The gourmet pizzas are made to order and they will accomodate anything you want. The pizza is thin and hot, with very fresh ingredients - just like the "old country". The service was good and it is nice to have to option of eating outside or in. Great location near everything downtown and on Clematis St. Wine and beer menu is decent. We will be back again and again!

“Good place to get lost and dine.”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Friends and I passed by the City Place of West Palm Beach on our way to Miami, and were encouraged to hopped in the free trolley ride. Hungry from drving from central Florida and being 11:30am, we asked and the driver suggested Grimaldi's by the waterfront.

The staff was friendly and the food - ah, what a delight!

The wood brick oven cooked pizza is not only enormous, but delicious! :-)
The view of the waterfront and yatchs is a good background to a sumptuous meal! :-)

Don't miss this out when you're at West Palm Beach.

“Waited an hour!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

My family loves to eat at this restaurant when we are home so I thought we'd find it while on vacation in Florida. Service was so poor. We ordered 3 pizzas and the restaurant was not busy at all. First pizza came out in 15 minutes. Our waitress said the other was right behind it. We waited 20 minutes. She brought it and said the next would be out in 60 seconds. We hardly saw the waitress at all - she barely came by to fill our drinks. Manager even came by to say our pizza would be right out. She came by later after we still didn't have our pizza to say our pizza had been burned and they had to start over. We were not happy. Why didn't they say so in the first place? They could have set the expectation by being truthful.
