Wow! We were amazed at the delicious food on the Flavor Palm Beach menu. The cold and hot apps were sensational. We were so full after them that we took our mains to go. The service was impeccable, well trained staff. We will be back often

Exceptional service and warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere. We tried multiple appetizers and main entrees, all of which were outstanding. Chocolate cake for dessert was divine. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Delray Beach and we highly recommend a visit. We promise you won’t be disappointed!

This restaurant is just special. Our meal was incredible - we ordered about 6 mezze dishes and one each of the skewers and the branzino. We were surprised with a sampler of each dessert. What a treat! We will be back again and again!

very fresh, well seasoned, well cooked food. A little noisy but well worth it. We had the Mixed Grill, Chicken Kabob and they were great. We will go back to this restaurant often.

Our first time there. My friend is Lebanese so we thought he would love the food. It was a disappointment to him. My daughter really liked the food. Brussel sprouts were delicious but the chicken, fish and spinach pastry was not great. The wine is very expensive and they don’t serve liquor.

Don’t make reservations at 8:45, they started cleaning and closing the place at 9:30 pm, when the restaurant closes at 10pm. We were there for dinner with family and they were so busy with cleaning and customer service was overlooked. We felt very uncomfortable.

Everything from calling into the restaurant to fix my reservation (I made the mistake) to the atmosphere and food was top notch. The food was authentically delicious, specially the dessert for 2, out of this world! As a local resident, I will be back as often as I can for this fantastic cuisine!

I have been going to Amar frequently since it opened. Been there about 10 times. Very consistent and the quality is very good. I am Lebanese and very picky about my Lebanese cuisine so if I am writing a review it must be good.

The food was very good.
Our server, Nicole, was absolutely lovely, patient, and very knowledgeable about the ingredients in the dishes regarding gluten.
Menu would be nicer with more than one item, pana cotta, for dessert for the gluten free guests.
Rice pudding is common in Mediterranean cuisine and welcome, a flourless chocolate cake would be awesome.
Filtered water machine is a great thing.
Tired of paying so much for bottled water.
Noise level was extreme and difficult with only a few tables in use and primarily large parties seated along the same wall with loud music also on. Loved when they see switched from pop to more appropriate Mediterranean music halfway through!
Better to spread folks out for a pleasant experience in this small restaurant.

We had heard really great things about this new place. The decor is nice, the server Elvie was polite and very informative about the menu.

We had the babaganoush as an app and it was delish. The mains were kabobs, which seemed dry and overcooked. The bill for 2 with tip was $130 which I consider high for what is basically a kabob place.
