Ta-Boo is an institution in Palm Beach, a legacy of tradition and a notable history. It embodies the classic ambience of a private club: burnished old wood, elegant fireplace, an expansive bar that is a tradition in and of itself. It's hard to think of this Worth Avenue gem as a " Bistro," but that’s what it is. The formula is a successful one; after all, Ta-Boo is one of the grand dames of the avenue dining experience. But calling Ta-boo a bistro is like referring to Chateau Margaux as a "Winery." There is something special-- a tried and true aura about the place.

It was my ladies birthday and the wait staff was fantastic. One of the staff kneel down and sang Happy Birthday very quietly to her. Very Special.

Brunch was a failure. My Huevos Rancheros came out cold and then without the sausage, which was like a ton of bricks and a substitute of bacon which was inedible, the meal was less than appetizing.
Service was very good.

We’ve been to TaBoo many times and have always had a great experience. This time however the hostess was extremely rude when we asked to change tables, rolling her eyes and saying something nasty under her breath, and women were walking around and approached the table to provide information on the products in their shops on Worth Ave. it really was very annoying and disruptive from an otherwise pleasant lunch.

Delightful night. Sat up front and enjoyed the open window. Fun specialty cocktails & Tabu Lust is a great dessert!

The crab stack was a disappointment. Not enough mango to taste it and the crab had a chemical taste to it. The others seemed to like their food but nothing outstanding.
I do love the architecture but it is so noisy, you can hardly have a conversation!

We had a nice lunch at Ta-boo. Good server. The food was excellent- warm chicken walnut and cheese salad, veggie bean burger. Both were really good. The only disappointment was that the Endless Summer cocktail that I ordered from the bar was not very good. It was far too tart for my taste.

The ambiance was bustling, with great people-watching opportunities! It was very enjoyable and we wanted to stay longer. Overall a great lunch stop.

Everything was average. Cocktails took too long to be delivered. The lemon sole was satisfactory but no better. Usually have the poached salmon and should have again. It is always superior. Doesn’t any place have a dress code any more? Sloppy cargo shorts and flimsy tee shirts don’t belong in a more formal atmosphere. I was one of very few men to wear a sport coat.

Disappointed with the sweet potato and coconut encrusted mahi mahi during a corporate dinner for 5. 2 of us orders the mahi mahi. The description sounded great. After serving 3 people at the table Our waiter came out to tell us the chef didn’t like the way it looked and was remaking it. What we got were a couple of blobs of mahi mahi in a large bed of mesclun. 1 cube of mango for the salsa and 2 green beans. No flavor. I barely ate 1 piece. A real miss.

This is the first time we have come here for brunch. Great selection of food. You could also get lunch at that time. Our friends came with us. We ordered the gazpacho and lobster bisque. Also omelets, quiche, and avocado toast. EVERYTHING was delicious!
We will come back for dinner soon.

I hope it was merely a blip on the radar, but the kitchen was in complete meltdown mode. So bad that the manager was comping dinners all over the restaurant. Have great memories eating there, but probably won’t go back.

We were a party of ten, only the one , very nice server. Our food was for some , served not even warm( sole) and some over cooked and in one case some one ordered tuna was told they would not cook it medium, only rare. Wine selection by the glass was good and cocktails were good but the food was passable at best. Our server really did try but she needed help. Found out after the fact that it really is a ladies who lunch spot!

Ta-Boo is a great restaurant for every day dining or special occasions. There is a variety of food on the menu, something for everyone. The service was excellent. The dessert, Taboo’s “Ta-Boo Lust” is always delicious.

My husband chose this restaurant for his birthday (and belated Valentine's Day) dinner. We made reservations through Open Table and asked for a table in the rear by the fireplace since we know that we would never get the front window table. When we arrived Kate, the hostess, offered us the window table instead if we preferred and we jumped on it. She recognized it was a special occasion and had had a cancellation, so she gave us first choice. What an awesome surprise. The evening was lovely, food outstanding and we felt so special Kate is a superb hostess and gave us our first drinks and took the time to check on us from time to time. We love this place and will definitely be back!

We had 6 people at a round table in the garden room. Great service, great food, fabulous bread basket, quiet enough that we could have a nice conversation. Why not put the apple cobbler on the dessert menu? Fabulous dessert you can only order if you know about it! Terrific varied menu. Wonderful experience.
