"After our previous experience with "unfriendly" waitress and a spotty" service, we returned to the Bistro with a hope that this time we will not be treated in the same manner and...we were not! Service was impeccable, but the food could have been a "notch" better. My beef Wellington offered a generous and tasty portion but the sword fish was a little overcooked and "mushy". Dover sole however was excellent! Overall, we had a nice dinner in a nice atmosphere with a good attentive service and we plan to return there soon."

"It was my numerous return to Mariposa during shopping at the Mall. This time I treated myself to a special cocktail drink, Martini Prosecco, which was quite nice. However, vegetable wrap I ordered was a total disappointment, so totally "tasteless" and boring that I could not finish (vegetables were just put together in a wrap raw, with barely any spices and some hummus). But Mariposa remains my favorite place for a quick lunch regardless of the menu."

Enjoy an evening... between us. The creative fare features contemporary American cuisine, using the finest ingredients made-to-order. The menu includes prime meats, local seafood, hand-made pastas and more - simply flavorful and fresh. Family owned and operated since in 2005, Entre Nous has become a "favorite' neighborhood bistro and bar. The atmosphere is relaxed and pleasing, making it a perfect dining destination to share with family, friends or a date.

"Our numerous return to this place and again, we had a very nice meal! My grilled veal chop was not only big in size but also big in flavor and my Portobello mushroom salad was excellent! My companion enjoyed duck and chicken dishes and , everybody seemed very satisfied. However, conversation was extremely limited because of the unusually energetic ambience."

"This was one of our multiple returns to La Sirena and this time, also a little dissatisfactory for me. My veal Saltimbocca was to my surprise "dry" and way too salty but my two companions enjoyed their chicken Cacciatore and a roasted chicken very much. It is our favorite place in this neighborhood, so we shall not get discouraged by this unusual event of a dish "less then perfect" and shall return soon."

Bazille is a stylish, yet comfortable restaurant featuring a contemporary American interpretation of classic bistro cuisine. The exhibition kitchen provides a stage for chefs to prepare uniquely designed dishes creating an energetic environment. Perfect for a sophisticated evening on the town, dinner between shopping and a movie or a quick family meal, Bazille can meet all of your dining needs. A step above your typical dining expectation, the wait staff is knowledgeable with a passion for attentive service. Start your experience with signature asparagus tempura followed by traditional chicken pommes frites, filet bordelaise or jumbo lump crab cake. Top off your meal with house made desserts including white chocolate bread pudding. The menu is complimented by a well-chosen selection of hand-crafted cocktails and wines, many available by the glass, that pair well with the menu. Bazille looks forward to serving you soon.

"This is a very convenient place to dine during shopping at the Mall. Menu is quite extensive with fried food dominating but one could also choose from a list of salads. Portions are quite big except for an appetizer menu which (especially if one orders two) is quite satisfactory. Very busy during lunch hours with a little spotty service but overall it is a good choice."

The Cooper, Craft Kitchen & Bar provides sustainable, environmentally conscious food in a contemporary setting, with unparalleled service. Our menu is influenced and inspired by fresh ingredients that are locally sourced and mindfully prepared. Complementing our menu are thoughtfully crafted artisan cocktails. These seasonal, barrel-aged cocktails are modern interpretations of classic drinks. The Cooper also offers wines and microbrewed draft beers that are lively and international.

"My first time at the Cooper"s and... a little disappointment. We were seated outside at the "high" table with tall chairs that were so uncomfortable that I could barely move my legs due to an obstructed circulation only after a short while. The place was busy however on that Saturday night, and, we could not be relocated to a regular table. We got there for a "Happy Hour" which offered a special menu with the alcoholic drinks almost half the regular price and same went for the little snack menu (crab burger "Cooper" style was very nice but a plate with cheese and prosciutto was dry and "tired" looking...). Anyway, it seemed like the other people had a good time, so I would recommend this place with a reservation and, if I come back, a request for a regular table for me."

'More fresh fish is coming to the island as Thierry Beaud, co-owner of Clematis' popular French bistro Pistache, and his group of Palm Beach investors are bringing life back to 251 Sunrise in the form of PB Catch...the restaurant space will feature locally caught seafood served in a casual nautical dining room, think "a modern yacht", accented with white-leather banquettes and mahogany floors.' - EaterMiami

"Our multiple return to PB Catch and, again, a wonderful culinary experience for us! Everything was just delicious, from appetizers, Squash spaghetti with Feta cheese and Oyster sampler, to main dishes such as wonderfully cooked Sea scallops , Yellow fin Tuna and Scottish Salmon! And desserts, Key Lime pie and Passion Fruit cake, were nothing else but great! Good list of wines to choose from too...Two thumbs up and a definite return!!"

Eclectic menus feature traditional and innovative cuisine served in the completely refurbished Leopard Lounge and Restaurant. The iconic leopard carpet and hand-painted ceiling remain, with new window and wall treatments, high gloss black shutters, punkah fans, banquette seating, plenty of mirrors and crystal, and new black granite tables. <br /><br />Executive Chef Gerard Coughlin uses only the freshest ingredients, from prime beef to fish, seafood, and produce locally sourced whenever possible, to create delicious dishes that satisfy every taste. Open throughout the day and night with breakfast, lunch, traditional English afternoon tea, dinner and dessert presented with attentive personal service according to our standard, "No request too large, no detail too small." <br /><br />Guests also enjoy breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner "al fresco" in The Courtyard at The Chesterfield, a delightful garden terrace reminiscent of charming European cafes.

"My feelings about this restaurant located in a high class hotel ( The Chesterfield Hotel!) are mixed. On one hand I enjoyed being in an luxurious place like this and having an excellent dinner (absolutely wonderful grilled veal chops, specialty of the chef) and then on the other, I could not understand how possibly this "high end" restaurant did not offer the proper glasses for the wine!!...I saw red and white wine being served in tall, "rectangular" glasses that had longitudinal "grooves"
on the outside and inside and I did not think that much of it, but when I got my Byron Pinot Noir in the same "all purpose" glass, I could not believe my eyes... I could not "swirl" my wine to release aroma, neither could I appreciate the color...At the end of my dinner I brought it up asking for an explanation but the response of my waiter was quite "laconic": "we do not have special glasses for "Pino"?! Anyway, I enjoyed my Veal chop very much and did the same with "baked Alaska" for dessert. I could recommend this place to my friends with a reservation.

"We had a great dinner with two of our friends! Beat salad was delicious to start with and then halibut was even better. Nice presentation on top of this and, we had a very pleasant dinning experience again."

Since Rafael Palomino—Sonora’s Executive Chef and Proprietor—opened the doors to this, his flagship Latin-fusion restaurant, he has received accolades from a broad customer base, including an “Excellent” from the New York Times. This creative, Colombian-born (Queens-raised) chef and author of five cookbooks, has since opened 8 more restaurants that span three states (New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania). Sonora, like Palomino’s other restaurants, boasts excellent service and mouth-watering dishes, paired with an extensive wine list and cocktail offerings. In addition to impeccable service and delicious dishes, Sonora’s two-story home offers guests the possibility of having a custom-designed and catered on-site private party, for any occasion, from 12 to 110 people.

"At Sonora , menu offers a variety of "Latino" dishes, all of which we had chosen were very good! Interesting combinations of flavors, spices and ingredients, including Flax, Quinoa and alike. Nice list of cocktails too. A definite "go back"."
