"Someone loves the "Wizard of Oz" at LaStella. Approaching the restaurant we were greeted by the Scarecrow and Tinman only to find the entire staff inside dressed as every character from the story. Fortunately our server, the Scarecrow, had a brain.
The four of us each ordered something different, which I love, as I get to sample different things. My chicken marsala was very tasty with lots of mushrooms and the sauce was not the least bit "gooey". My husband enjoyed one of the specials of the evening, a chicken rolled and filled with spinach, ham and manchego cheese. The veal chop parmegian and the rigatoni bolognese our friends ordered were absolutely delish. I use a bolognese sauce as one of my standards and this one passed with very high marks. I am a purist and do not enjoy peas, carrots or cream in my bolognese, just lots of meat with a flavorful tomato sauce. I am a happy girl and will definitely order this another time.
Portions were very generous. I do not usually take doggy bags home as I do not enjoy dried out leftovers. Our lunch the next day was the two chicken dishes and there was more than enough for a nice meal. Everything was as yum as the night before.
La Stella has joined the list of our "faves" for Italian food. We will be back and hopefully, the staff will be as joyful and fun as the last time. F.Y.I. The costumes were to honor the 75th(?) anniversary of the Wizard. The previous night there was a charity function at the restaurant and the staff enjoyed the costumes so much that they decided to wear them again. Glad they did.

From the gracious service to South Florida’s widest selection of fresh seafood, City Fish Market’s comfortable, neighborhood atmosphere is a relaxing retreat. The restaurant sits on a sparkling man-made lake and welcomes guests to enjoy the view, with the soothing blues and clean whites of the decor creating a relaxed environment. With plenty of television sets, the welcoming bar and lounge area is the perfect place to watch a game, catch up on the latest news or relax with a cocktail before dinner. Nightly live music provides the perfect ambiance for a memorable dining experience. Enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of City Fish Market!<br /><br />Serving lunch and dinner seven days a week, with retail hours daily.

"We are regulars at City Fish Market, both at the terrific happy hour and in the main restaurant. They never disappoint.
It was a daughter's birthday and we chose to have our little celebration there, so I made a reservation for this past Sunday. When we got there, we were greeted like old friends in spite of the fact that the manager on duty was new to us and our server was not one of our favorites. He is now.
Our appetizers were pleasing to all, even the fish hater. Our entrees were delicious, as always pefectly prepared. Desssert was certainly yummy.
Along the way, we had a serious problem that could have been very dangerous. The manager was there instantly and, we all were so pleased how he took care of the sitation immediately to our satisfaction. If every restaurant had management and food of a like quality as City Fish, there wouldn't be as many closings in fickle Boca.

Twenty Twenty Grille in Royal Palms Place of Boca Raton, Florida has a menu that goes far beyond Contemporary American Cuisine; it is a true Culinary Fusion of International classics and Modern food Art. <br><br>Chef Ron Weisheit has been in the culinary field for over 25 years. He was a top graduate of San Francisco Culinary Academy and was awarded 3 gold medals at the Culinary Olympics, in Germany. His wife Rhonda also graduated at the top of her class in Portland, Maine Culinary school and was the Executive pastry chef for number of years. Together they developed menu items that span from the International Classics to more extraordinary and adventurous.

"Tonight's dinner at TwentyTwenty Grille was one of the best meals I have ever eaten, bar none. My friend and I had the cinammon duck breast with duck ravioli, butternut squash and a chunky apple topping. We ate every bit on our plates. Not only was the entree fabulous, but the homemade bread and homemade flavored butter were reasons enough to go back again and again. You can bet we will."
