THIS PLACE WAS RECENTLY SOLD AND IS NOW THE WORST RESTAURANT IN WEST PALM BEACH. SERIOUSLY, RUN FROM THIS PLACE. THE "NEW" OWNER IS A NIGHTMARE, THE SERVICE IS HORRIBLE AND, ALTHOUGH WE WERE NEVER SERVED EVEN A GLASS OF WATER AFTER AN HOURS WAIT, THE FOOD THAT WAS SERVED TO PEOPLE IN THE LARGER DINING ROOM LOOKED VILE. NOTHING LIKE IT USED TO LOOK. PEOPLE WERE SENDING MANY PLATES BACK. THREE TABLES OF PEOPLE WALKED OUT IN DISGUST. WE WERE THE FORTH TO WALK OUT. NOBODY HAD BEEN SERVED A THING AND ALL HAD WAITED IN EXCESS OF AN HOUR.THIS USED TO BE A GREAT, FUN, CASUAL PLACE BUT NOT ANYMORE. NOW IT IS GRIMY AND SMELLY AND NOT CLEAN WITH HORRIBLE SERVICE AND NASTY LOOKING FOOD. SAVE THE AGGRAVATION.
Favorite Dish: NOTHING
IHOP stands for International House of Pancakes. It is one of those places where you can get breakfast all day. We stopped here for lunch.
A Parent's Magazine review quoted on the IHOP website said: "This breakfast favorite also makes a good lunch and dinner choice for families. IHOP provides lots of options - great for the picky eaters in your party. Kids love the waffles and pancakes (available all day), but there's also a full menu of lunch and dinner options, including sandwiches and full entree plates. Here, timing is everything. Reviewers suggested trying the restaurant in the afternoon or early evening", when it will be less crowded.
Weekend mornings, IHOP's fare tends to sell ..well.. like hotcakes.
Favorite Dish: I had a spinach salad with chicken which was too much for me to eat. Bob had a sandwich.
While we ate, we looked out the window by the table and watched a man catching an alligator in the West Palm Beach Canal which was beside the restaurant
DEEEELICIOUS OVERSTUFFED CREPES of all sorts leave you feeling elated and satisfied...
Choose from sweet dessert crepes, breakfast crepes and entree crepes with fantastic ingredients, made right in front of you.
Coffee and tea selections are high quality and good. they'll serve any such drink hot, cold or frozen. They also serve smoothies and ice cream.
This place is great... located in a new plaza on Lantana Rd. just west of Military Trail... With two large flat screen TVs, an internet station, a small merry-go-round for the little ones and cozy booths...
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Favorite Dish: I had the Millie's choice crepe.... sliced bananas, strawberries dolce de leche sauce and whipped cream, decadent and fabulous....
Also tried the strawberry chicken crepe... something like a monte cristo sandwich and the Philly cheese crepe...
Fantastic chai served here....
City cellar is hip.... with indoor and outdoor seating, posh booths & a long swanky bar which faces a rather impressive glass-front wine celar-
Lighting is dim, dress is casual to ultra sexy depending upon your age and what time you get there. Outdoor tables are the place to people watch... also, from the outside table to can hear the live bands that often play downstairs. (City cellar is located on the second floor of City Place.)
Menu is good... a great selection of appetizers, salads, pastas, meats, sandwiches & pizza- plus they always have great specials.
Wine list is huge with a great variety of types and prices.
Favorite Dish: MY FAVES-
-Gnocci alla vodka with asiago
- Roasted red pepper hummus, baked feta, eggplant camponata, olives & flatbreads
Pinenut crusted goat cheese and babygreens
Spinach, gorgonzola & spiced pear salad
Sea scallops, ricotta gnocci, truffle oil, wild and domestic mushrooms
Husband's favorite entree:
Roasted duckling with sundried cherries, onion risotto in a pinot noir sauce
Price per person is based upon ordering a salad & entree, or an appetizer & salad, without wine.
This place is definitely off the beaten path when it comes to touristy areas of the West Palm area....
Mom's kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but we recommend it for breakfast.... This quaint little place is packed, so expect to wait a bit before you're seated. Just give the cashier your name first so you're on the wait list. There are benches out front of this little establishment and newspaper machines so relax while you wait.... Once inside there is a bar-type seating area with swiveling stools and there are regular tables. The clientele includes families, truckers, all sorts of people...
The breakfasts are CHEAP, good sized and classic- Expect to eat for under $6 unless you order the T-bone steak and eggs or something of that nature.
The atmosphere is in my opinion, so typical American. The decor is kitschy but cozy. The waitresses have worked there for as many as 23 years.
Favorite Dish: I always have the mushroom and cheese omlette with hashbrowns and a biscuit.... mmmmmm!
This off the beaten path Mexican restaurant is a bit on the cheesy side decor wise, with a typical Mexican theme and mint green booths... but the owners and staff are so friendly, the margaritas are so delicious, the food is good- particularly their queso and guacamole! We just always come back! And we always recommend it to others...
They make their margaritas with a wide variety of tequillas, many flavors, on the rocks or frozen. But I recommend going with a pitcher of the classic margarita on the rocks.
They have a funny cute little bar in the back with a few tables too.
Favorite Dish: I always order a bean burrito with a side of guacamole and sour cream.
Husband eats the steaming fajitas and loves them....
The price per person includes a margarita or two!
this is a wonderful place.
Favorite Dish: The night I was there, there was a special called wood roasted pompano. It came out on top of a piece of charred wood (not as bad as it sounds) and it was awesome!! For dessert I had the Grand Marnier creme brulee. It was divine.

I went to Teapots and Treasures with a friend for lunch. I walked in and was enchanted by it's charming ambience. We were greeted promptly and sat in a cozy alcove. The seating areas were separated by hutches and dressers filled with wonderful treasures that I found out were all for sale. Every detail was creative and inviting. The menus were brought to the table with a basket of tins of tea. We were told to smell them to see what tea we wanted. All the teas were loose leaf and delightful to smell and experience. We ordered our lunch and were invited to shop around. As we poked around all the nooks and crannys had unique gifts and jewelry and just about anything we girls love. Our server was helpful and friendly, which I found out later was one of the owners. Everything was served on vintage mix matched china and each piece was delicate and lovely. The lunch was generous and delicious as well as the "Decadent" Florida sunshine cake we had for desert. I can't believe I had not stopped at this shop before. This cafe is a real treasure and I can't wait to go again.
Favorite Dish: I ordered the Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomato with the Tomato Soup. The Chicken Salad was unlike any I have had before. It had grapes and nuts but had a slight sweetness that was just delicious and the Tomato tasted like it was vine ripened. The Tomato Soup was rich and creamy and served in a teacup. My friend had Quiche with fresh fruit. Her quiche was homemade and wonderful and the fruit was fresh cut melons, strawberries and pineapple. The menu included sandwiches, wraps and salads that were impressive as I saw them delivered to other tables.
Friendly, not really posh but a bit classy. Still, you can come in casual clothes and eat inside or outside. It's in City Place which is a large two story, multi-street outdoor shopping complex. Loads of other shops, restaurants within walking distance, as well as a cinema.
Favorite Dish: The chowder is absolutely delicious! They also have around 4 types of oysters.
I always visit this restaurant whenever I'm in West Palm. I absolutely love the ribs! It has separate bar and restaurant areas, loads of televisions unobtrusively showing sports programmes and the beer is cold. Good selection of local and foreign beer. Staff are friendly and helpful. Kids are welcome and there's a kids menu too.
Favorite Dish: The ribs are great and the fried shrimp are too. It has a good diverse menu from burgers to steak to ribs, chicken, wings andon to seafood.
This place is GORGEOUS. New on the scene and pretty tasty. Picture clean whites mixing with silver and potted grass as your centerpiece.
Make sure you have a drink at the bar first. I suggest you order one of their absolutely genius renditions of the Bellini... (or go for the classic if you wish—prosecco and peach nectar) I recommend the lemongini—prosecco with a shot of lemoncello. Lovely. When it comes to being sat for dinner, ask for a booth if you can, think pearly white tufted luxe with a great view of the dining room.
Clientele is older, after all, this is Boca. But I think they wish for a more youthful crowd and are doing things to promote such. Try not to be shocked by the mass quantities of saline, botox and such.
Thursday nights are called "High Society" and this is when the "younger" set comes out for drink specials and dancing to tunes spun by their resident DJ. This goes on 'til like 2 am.
Favorite Dish: I had a divine little eggplant appetizer... thinly sliced and seasoned with fresh ricotta cheese and a drizzle of spicy tomato sauce.
Then for my entree, a huge bowl of creamy risotto with succulent scallops and asparagus.
My husband and some of the others with us thought the food to be a little on the bland side, but nothing a little salt and pepper can't fix.
Extensive wine list which is surprisingly decently priced from what we experienced.
*Price per person excludes wine in this case.
