This is a beautiful restaurant. The food is always outstanding, along with the service. The scallops were perfectly done and the side dishes were just right to complete the meal. After dinner, we stopped at the bar and had drinks. The bartender was attentive and friendly. It's pricey, but if you want good food, service and ambiance, then it's worth it. We will definitely go back.
Service was non existent! Portions were small for the price There would be mo reason to return. What a shame as the hotel is beautiful
Ambiance is purley Palm Beach! Services and food are worth the slightly elevated costs. Romantic and perfect for any occasion. Indoor and outdoor seating by the pool available.
We have had lunch poolside at the Colony Hotel once or twice each winter for several years--and never have been disappointed. Our choices--lobster roll and crab cakes--were generous, tasty and beautifully presented. The service and ambiance were up to their usual standards.
excellent setting for brunch and social at the 11 am Mass at Episcopal Church of Bethesda by the Sea on the island. Friendly, clean, and courteous staff surrounds you. Cocktails not that great so we changed to wine with a good selection of by the glass. The young woman who waited on us was very friendly, smiled but not sure about her responsibilities....very slow in service, not attentive at all. We had long waits for ordering, for ordering cocktails and wine, to see dessert menu and waited 14 minutes for our bill.
Yet overall THE COLONY is worth a visit at lunch. Indeed a true taste of Palm Beach.
Very disappointing experience. We had a Birthday dinner and didn’t even stay for a dessert, just wanted to get out of the restaurant. Staff was overwhelmed and clearly not staffed to handle evening service. Food was underwhelming as well. Might have been a bad night in otherwise good establishment, but we won’t be back.
Worst experience at a Palm Beach Restaurant the 8+ years we have been going to Palm Beach.
Once seated, sat for a very long time without being acknowledged until a lady cleaning tables spoke up and said we needed service, still no-one came to table. After a party of 4 and a party of 2 came in after us were served drinks, I went up to hostess and said something. Even after that the hostess walked past our table twice, and never acknowledged the lack of service... We then just left, never will we return or recommend this establishment...
It was a birthday celebration and no one did anything for even mentioned happy birthday. Huge disappointment on this part. Otherwise, always been one of my favorites.
An experience that revisits another era.
Serene lunchtime meal. Out of a movie set.
Food was great and service too. Loved the music
The best ...New York ambiance in Palm Beach...beautiful
We were celebrating my husband's birthday, we were seated in a lovely banquette, offered a glass of champagne and had a wonderful dinner. Thank you also for excellent service.
Beautiful spot. Great ambience . Remarkable food,. Yummy creative selections. Highly recommend!
Love the ambience and eating outdoors is always a treat. Wonderful service and attention.
Great restaurant to get together with friends. We were very happy, we will be back!
Hotspot with amazing food! Great ambience. Tasty options like chicken curry and lobster salad outdoor seating is amazing!
Service is extremely slow. Ambiance beautiful next to pool. Food fair. A lot of tables with dogs which is a deterrent.
Excellent food and service at breakfast. Pleasant environment.
Great food but if you are expecting good service.... Look elsewhere
Music great ,great manager Mark is outstanding in every way. We loved our evening and will be back ASAP
Waited 50 minutes for drinks to arrive; service was very slow.
Such a pretty and retro venue for poolside breakfast. The food is good but very expensive and pretty ordinary. However the service is pleasant but quite inept, very surprising....almost like they are all new and never had a busy service. Over an hour and a half for breakfast.
The price listed for New Year’s Eve on open table was charged to my card without authorization and for hundreds more dollars than was advertised. The GM was not just unapologetic, he was outright rude.
Fun setting and cute decor. The menu wasn’t our favorite and food was just Kay. I think it would be better for lunch!
Food okay. Appetizers esp the tuna tartare very good. Entrees were hit and miss. The steak was very good. Crab cakes meh and fried chicken was not real chicken but chicken tenders. Desserts much better than okay. Brownie super and key lime pie exceptional. Room temperature felt like a meat locker and repeated pleas to turn down the a/c went unheeded. Service also hit and miss. Slow (it was busy so cut some slack). Had to ask for dessert menu. Dishes not cleared properly. At the prices here the service should be more professional.
Sitting by the pool was lovely. The wait staff tried hard. The menu was not really a dinner menu.
I ordered a lobster salad, that was supposed to be chunk lobster on greens with green beans and vinaigrette dressing on the side. It turned out to be mayonnaise with a little bit of lobster mixed in.
My entire table felt the same way. It was easy to get a reservation last minute, and now I know why.
Our reservations were not honored even though we confirmed earlier that afternoon. The restaurant then wanted to put us at an outdoor table with a cold rain. The menu at this part of the restaurant was a bar menu different from the menu in the main dining room. When we complained, they managed to find a table for us. There were no flowers on this table even though the rest of the tables had than. There were bread and butter plates, but we were never offered bread and the plates were whisked away. The food was okay but not spectacular. Having lived in Palm Beach for many years, I have never had this type of experience. There are many better restaurants in Palm Beach. Don’t waste your money here.
Beautiful atmosphere and wonderful food.
We ate outside by the pool and it was a beautiful sunny day. Lunch was very nice. I would only say our waitress was a bit MIA most of the time. Would have expected more at the Colony!
Lobster roll was without taste and too much mayonnaise
I'm so sorry to hear about your recent lunch. I am a huge fan of lobster rolls so I know what it means to be disappointed about one. I hope you don't draw too much of a conclusion of the culinary talent from your experience, because over all, they do an outstanding job day in and day out. I do hope you will come back and give us another try. I promise we will take great care of you. Thanks for the feedback.
After having enjoyable meals and good experiences over the years, our most recent dinner was disappointing and well below par for the Colony and Palm Beach restaurants in general. Pedestrian food, grossly lacking service and a hostess that clearly need more training. Someone needs to make some adjustments quick.
So sorry to hear about your dinner last Monday. It may be hard to believe after your experience, but we do take great pride in our food and service. Unfortunately in this case we clearly we missed the mark on your dinner. I hope you will give us another shot. I appreciate the feedback and will reach out shortly. We will do our best to make it up to you and win back your trust. I look forward to welcoming you back.
Our server, Katie was exceptional. Attentive, thoughtful and knowledgeable. The food, fresh, tasty and creative. A perfect pair great service and great food without the arrogance or entitlement so often found in Palm Beach establishments.
Dear Josh, Can't thank you enough for your lovely thoughts, and we will make sure to let Katie, Chef, and the Back of House team know how much you enjoyed your evening at The Colony. Hope to see you again soon.
We sat outside which was lovely. The service was very good and the food was delicious. I felt the prices were a bit steep for what we ordered.
A lovely brunch. Delicious food, excellent service and beautiful space - a wonderful experience.
Amazing food. outstanding desserts. Excellent service
Thanks for making my birthday special.
The chocolate truffles were delish!
Excellent food and service. We were pleasantly surprised with a musical trio with a piano jazz virtuoso.
Thanks for the feedback and we are so happy you enjoyed the food and service - and yes Copeland is a treasure! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
I could not have asked for a more perfect dining experience. I am a vegetarian and this place did NOT disappoint. The vegan risotto was out of this world. I throughly enjoyed the cauliflower steak. Tyler is excellent, his service and recommendations were spot on! I can’t wait to go back.
Thank you for the feedback. And its great to hear you enjoyed the risotto and "steak". Chef Whitaker takes great pride in putting delicious vegetarian and vegan options on the menu - items that even a carnivore would love. We look forward to welcoming you back!
