"Have been dining here since their opening. Consistently good food, prepared well, and delivered quickly, even during peak evening hours. Diverse crowd, from locals to tourists. The outdoor dining area is always packed, as is the bar, one cannot request an outside table on Opentable, approximate wait of 45 minutes upon arrival. Try their fish dishes, they are my favorite."

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.

"Enjoyed our Sunday night dinner outside, recommend you consider outside dining for more privacy and less noise. The new Autumn menu is impressive, from the salad offerings to the entrees of new offerings: huge Pork Chop and a stuffed chicken breast. Each beautifully plated, cooked to perfection. Bravo to chef Ron and hostess/co-owner Rhonda for their continued awesome performance. Fine dining without pretense! Not for everyone, look at menu first, and if you don't like the description, suggest you NOT ask for changes, it will ruin the dish. And it is not inexpensive - appetizers average $15, entrees $30 ish, each patron needs their own! If this is too expensive for you, stay away!"

"Another great meal at LaStella's. Brought a couple there for their first visit, and they loved it. The chicken parm entree was tasty, the sauce thick. Enough chicken to bring home half. The meatball appetizer - two meatballs - were huge. The Sauvignon Blanc from Chile was very dry, as I like it, and well priced at $30 a bottle. Alyssa and Matt both served our table, and did an awesome job. After 5 years of serving up great meals, LaStella's continues to impress us. (And tonight's music stream was upbeat and unique - keep it real, guys. Love it)"

"Second Brunch in less than a month, well worth the return visit, the Eggs Sardou (poached eggs, artichokes, crispy prosciutto and truffle hollandaise) were delis. The Club Sandwich was oversized and yummy. The Tanzy Mary (their version of a Bloody Mary) was real tasty, but light on the alcohol. Ordered another round, made our waiter aware of the light pour, the second round was much better, but frankly, the first round should have been a decent pour. This is a busy brunch spot, be prepared for lots of folks, make sure you make reservations, but iof you are reading this on OpenTable, I guess you will!"

Sapphire Boca Raton is the latest and most enthralling new venture by NJ/NY based Indian Cuisine Restauranteur Raju Brahmbhatt. Indian Cuisine, the food from the Indian subcontinent in Asia is primarily characterized by the extensive use of various spices, herbs and other vegetables and sometimes fruits. The subcontinent is as diversified in its culinary traditions as its languages and religions, thus, include a wide assortment of dishes and cooking techniques. As a consequence, it varied from region to region, reflecting the varied demographics. The idea behind this concept is to show Floridians something that reflects modern India in terms of design, ambiance, and cuisine.

"Not sure if management understands what they need to do to succeed in East Boca. Still no bartender, drinks weak, and $20 for a double of vodka on the rocks? Yikes!! Some of the entrees were served warm, rather than hot, were they sitting around before being brought to the table? This was a mid week dine with only about 5 tables occupied in the restaurant. While food was tasty, it lacked "punch", I think I'll wait about a month before returning to see if improvement occurs. Hope it does, as this could be a welcome addition to our area if properly staffed and managed."

"First time I had brunch at Tanzy, was really impressed with their offerings, as to quality of food served, plating of it, and the portion sizes. They are busy at brunch (Saturdays and Sundays), so be prepared. Our server was attentive, food arrived without too long a wait, and I've now got another East Boca restaurant to consider when having brunch. The smoked urkey club, Mediterranean penne pasta with chicken breast, and filet mignon medallions with eggs were all yummy."

Boca Landing, located at the Waterstone Resort & Marina, brings a fresh take to coastal fare. Seating abounds both inside and out with fantastic views of Lake Boca. Be sure to take advantage of nightly chef inspired specials. From their raw bar to seafood based small plates, there is something for every palate. The beverage program shines with artisanal cocktails, local Florida craft brews, and a carefully curated, 150 bottle wine selection. Pair their smorgasbord; a daily assortment of chilled fish, meats, cheese, and accompaniments; with a classic cocktail for a perfect meal.

"Boca Landing continúes to impress with its new menu roll-out. A creative chef offers well prepared and attractively plated fish entrees, and many share tasty plates and salads - which are large enough to share. Locally sourced fish are used. Love the SNAPPER, and SWORDFISH, the TORCHIO [Italian sausage and pasta] share plate was a #BOOM! Don't mistake this for just another hotel restaurant [it is located in the newly renovated Waterstone Resort] - it is a force unto itself. An impressive wine list, by the glass as well as bottle, a happy hour with bar treats, and Mondays are half off bottles of wine. Attentive and professional servers, ask for Gabriela or Edward, many tables overlook the Boca Bay, and outdoor seating also."

An eclectic award-winning combination of cuisines including Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese. Lemongrass Asian Bistro has always been the neighborhood favorite. With reasonable prices, world class food and service, Lemongrass always delivers. No matter what type of cuisine you desire, you'll find something you'll love on the extensive menu. The sushi rolls are particularly inventive, with many choices you won't likely find anywhere else. Sunsentinel : Top 10 Asian Restaurant in Florida ...............................................

"Love to sit outside at Lemongrass, even when its during the summer heat. Inside tends to get noisy on busy nights, and is overly air conditioned. Attentive service by Howdy. Consistently good sea bass, hot fresh vegetables, yummy broiled salmon. Check out their large selection of bottled saki, all reasonably priced. Streams upbeat music, attracts younger crowds than many other East Boca restaurants."

"The food was very tasty, nicely presented, and my dining colleague, who knows Indian food, declared it as outstanding. We dined on a Saturday night, with a reservation for 4 at 7:30. We were seated at a table near the front entry door, w/ half of our group facing the very active kitchen door. It was an undesirable table, and when I asked for a different table, I was told "no", even though desirable booths were open. The problem here is with management. They were GROSSLY UNDERSTAFFED. After ordering two drinks and appetizers, the drinks came to the table 35 minutes later, and were poorly made. The food arrived at 8:45, and frankly, while quite good, the dining experience was ruined by the unreasonabletime it took to receive the food."

"Another impressive dine at a very special, small, restaurant in East Boca. It is obvious that chef/owner Ron and host/owner Rhonda operate their restaurant with passion and clearly enjoy what they are doing. Plating of meals is beautifully done, and the palate is excited with each bite. If you are seeking huge portions, and want your food "dry", "no sauce", "no this, no that", I suggest you go elsewhere. The chef will be preparing special food combinations, and if you start to change them, you will simply lose out on the "gestalt" of the dish. Also, be patient, your food is not sitting around ready to be slapped on a plate! Attentive and professional service provided by Michael."
