Where to Eat in Palm Beach: The Best Restaurants and Bars

April 14, 2018 Jacquiline Delozier

Palm Beach has long lured America's big name social elite, from the Kennedys to the Pulitzers to the Trumps. If you don't have the Jaguar, catch a Palm Tram around the city. Opulent extravagance is the order of the day. But if you can take your eyes off the glittering procession of socialites and the prices at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Spa and in Worth Avenue stores, there are plenty of other sights to be seen. Don't miss Henry Morrison Flagler Museum or the hopping nightlife on Clematis Street.

The Circle at The Breakers

Start your day with breakfast in the comfortable elegance of The Circle, home of The Breakers celebrated Sunday Brunch. Choose from an extensive buffet of hot and cold selections or order from the appetizing a la carte menu.

We recently visited the stunning Breakers for brunch in the Circle room. From ambiance, service, the food... there is no other place like this to visit. The room is nostalgic if a bygone period, its luxurious yet not stuffy. And the food...lobster galore, succulent oysters, crab claws, fantastic sushi & everything that a carnivore would like as well. Everything is absolute perfection every single visit. This still remains my favorite brunch year after year.

Leopard Lounge & Restaurant

Reviewed By David A - Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

We're Palm Beach County locals, so we try to let the tourists and snowbirds flock to the local dining spots "in season" and wait out the crowds until late spring through early fall. But last night we decided to venture out and were fortunate enough to get a reservation at the Leopard Lounge. We'd heard much about it, it has a great reputation, and while we're fond of other Palm Beach restaurants we'd never had the chance to try. What a mistake on our part -- we're not sure what took us so long! The atmosphere was elegantly nostalgic and fun, the music (we were early enough for the piano and late enough to catch the beginning of the band) was terrific (so we'll be back for dancing) and the food and service were perfect. Foodie wife had pan seared scallops in a lemon buerre blanc -- and they were wonderful, served with a parmesan risotto. I had a shrimp strogonoff. (Who knew....shrimp?) It was surprisingly terrific, with jumbo shrimp, and wonderful strogonoff sauce served with rice. Just lovely. For apps she had the spring greens with pear and goat cheese; I had the exquisite ahi tuna (which was a meal in itself). For dessert, try the sticky toffee pudding. A terrific take on a classic. And our thanks to server, Luci, for attentive but not over-the-top service. A wonderful dining experience in a wonderful atmosphere. We look forward to returning.

Seafood Bar

Relaxation and refinement as only The Breakers can do. In late December 2016, we revealed the legendary Seafood Bar, completely reimagined around its best feature: the stunning Atlantic backdrop. Come for fresher-than-fresh seafood for lunch or dinner. Stay for inspired cocktails or something from our extensive wine-by-the-glass selection. A glamorous new exhibition kitchen puts you at the center of it all. Stroll in as you are and experience the allure of the yachting lifestyle. Bespoke nautical details, beautiful new aquariums, and a front-row seat to the ocean views no matter where you sit. Nothing short of spectacular, this is Palm Beach life at its best.

Reviewed By MaryEllen22 - Guilderland, New York

When in Palm Beach...go see the Breakers! It's amazing, and the Seafood Bar restaurant is definitely worth enjoying while you're here. The aquarium bar is so unique...great for photo ops! Service was top-notch, atmosphere vibrant with great views all around, and the food was excellent!

Reviewed By janbK6058QR - Villanova, Pennsylvania

We arrived in Palm Beach after a flight delayed over 2 hours. Our kids were hungry and we wanted to find healthy food options quickly. Chickpea was a great option! Choose a bowl, wrap, salad- then all the fixings. Everyone had a great meal.
The staff was helpful, polite and
professional.

We did not linger as we had to continue driving.

The interior was not fancy- but clean and seating was adequate at counter front, benches and tables.

We will be back!

Reviewed By jasonfc99 - Jupiter, Florida

I was not sure what to expect as its a bit away from downtown Palm Beach but was very delighted with our "find". the food was delicious with portions sizes being perfect. the menu had a good selection. The setting is part of the experience with a odd mix 50's diner tables but with an intimate setting. Our waiter was very experienced. he was attentive to our needs but never pushy. I definitely hope to go back there again. reservations can be tricky as its not a big restaurant.

Atlantic Bar & Grill at the Four Seasons Palm Beach

As street fare and food carts continue to gain culinary attention, AB&G, the only beachfront restaurant on the island, offers a menu inspired by beach food favourites from around the world. Try our signature ahi tuna and Atlantic salmon chirasi from Southeast Asia, our pescado tacos inspired by Mexico, or our lamb keftedes sandwich, reminiscent of the Middle East. No matter which dish you choose, the flavours will radiate the essence of being seaside.

This lunch spot is one of the most beautiful places to enjoy a relaxing lunch. We did not rush at all, but took in the excellent service, and view of the Atlantic Ocean. The tables are positioned behind vegetation which protects from the breezes. We ordered tortilla chips and salsa for an appetizer and it was delicious. I ordered the Greek salad with chicken and my daughter had the Atlantic Bar and Grill burger. She said it was very tasty. We loved our lunch, the view and the delicious food. It was expensive, costing nearly $85, but it was a special treat that we will remember for a long time. Our server was Angelica and she was prompt and friendly.

Enter The Breakers’ grand lobby and you’ll hear it: the growing roar of laughter, music and clinking goblets. Turn the corner into the North Loggia and you’ll see it: everyone dressed to the nines, abuzz in our exquisite Florentine Room—where the glitterati drank and dined for decades—reinvented as the dazzling and modern HMF, Palm Beach’s hottest gathering place. Named after the resort’s founder, Henry Morrison Flagler, HMF is steeped in the glamour of an earlier era, yet wholly current.

Did not eat here but enjoyed the bar scene every night that we stayed at the Breakers. I’m told however the food is outstanding. The room is electric and very lively. The crowd is very sophisticated and fun to be with. The room, o my the room, is gorgeous! One of the most beautiful rooms I’ve ever had the pleasure of being in for either drinking or eating. It’s incredibly large with 30’ ceilings and beautiful appointments. And by the way, the drinks are outstanding!

Buccan

Reviewed By Stealthcritic - Palm Beach, Florida

We have been dining at Buccan since they first opened. It is certainly one of the most interesting menus in Palm Beach.
We have almost always enjoyed the food. Sometimes there are a little heavy with the salt.
If you want to enjoy your evening with friends, arrive early.
We were there 8:00 pm and the noise level was almost painful.
We really could not have any conversation. I could only barely hear the person next to me.

Flagler Steakhouse

Down the resort’s picturesque, palm-lined drive sits Flagler Steakhouse, a fresh take on the classic American chophouse. Inside, dramatic beamed ceilings, wood furnishings and a prep-luxe palette of red, white and blue evoke steakhouse tradition, while sleek, oversized chandeliers and graphic art skew contemporary. Out on the terrace, designed for comfortable dining every month of the year, panoramic views of the golf course and city skyline affirm you’re in the heart of Palm Beach. Tuck into a table for lunch or dinner and explore our celebrated menu, anchored by the finest selection of USDA prime cuts—a mere 2% of all sourced beef—and expanded with Italian specialties, savory sides, and lighter options like fresh fish, salads and more. Come early or stay late and enjoy a cocktail or nightcap at the handsome bar.

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner the night of the NCAA championship game~perhaps this is why we were fortunate enough to enjoy an uncrowded evening. Our server was very sweet & attentive. Excellent wine list and the food is delicious. I highly recommend the filet with a side of mushrooms~they were incredible! I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning to enjoy the outdoor patio dining.

Best baguette and croissants this side of the Atlantic ocean. Very friendly owner and staff, who have managed to preserve the art of providing delicious meals with few high quality real food ingredients... A Saturday breakfast here feels like a small vacation to Paris.
