Hi mad4ucla, Thank you for your review. We value your patronage especially at this time. Hopefully we'll see you again soon!
Food was good, service was excellent. Atmosphere was good as well.
Hi SusanT, The cornerstones of a great dinning experience are food, service and ambiance. Looks like we achieved this during your visit! Thank you for the 5 star review!
It was Ok, we sat for about 5 mins before we were acknowledged. We ordered drinks but when Ellen was there, we didn't have to ask for anything. Water and bread came out ASAP without asking.
The food was delish. We had sea bass and a lobster roll!
Many items we enjoyed previously were taken off the menu!
Hi Gigi, Thank you for your review. I would love to know who your server was because (as you know) it is not our practice to have a guest wait to be greeted. Water and bread service are available upon request. We have found that when they are brought automatically there is a lot of waste. After 3 years, we rolled out a new menu. Yes, there are items that had to come off mostly because they didn't sell well and now there are many new items that can become your favorite. Please try us again!
My birthday dinner at Spoto's Oyster Bar was absolutely wonderful! The Barnstable oysters were exquisite, and the Linguini in Clam Sauce spectacular. No one can top Spoto's Dirty Martini and their craft cocktails!! Spoto's is my favorite restaurant in Palm Beach County. The staff is superior and I highly recommend this neighborhood gem.
Wow what a great review! We are always humbled when we learn that we are someone's favorite restaurant especially when there are so many to choose from! Thank you for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again.
The chicken dish was dry. My seafood dish was cold and not very tasty.
Hi LoreneT, We take every guest comment very seriously! As it is our goal that every guest leave well fed and happy...if you didn't like your dinner why didn't you mention it to any one of the managers on the floor? It would've been their pleasure to make you something else? We hope you dine with us again.
Assuming that's a good sound? Thank you for the review!
Father wanted a booth, hostess lied and said only for party of 5 or more, then proceeded to seat three booths with only four people. Waitress snapped at us for asking for bread. Then the pretzel grouper off the menu. They had grouper but would not oblige and make the pretzel grouper. Said it was only for the snapper.. too many great restaurants in WPB. We will never be back. Oh and it WAS DadS favorite.. not anymore
Hi Katlovesgoodfood, We are still trying to get to the bottom of your comments. This is not business as usual at Spotos. Having been a loyal and frequent guest you must know that as well.
Had a great lunch! My boyfriend absolutely loved the char-broiled oysters with Asiago cheese.
Thank you for your review! We actually just rolled out a new lunch menu! you know what I call any cooked oyster like the Charred? Oysters On Training Wheels! If you want to try oysters and can't get past their..... texture... try them baked 1st. Oh and Our Charred Oysters are fabulous! You now need to try us for dinner!
Nice dinner. On the pricey side but it was good. The chicken kids meal was also great.
Hi MichelleG, Thank you for your review. Every dish at Spotos is made to order using only the best quality and freshest ingredients available. We're glad to know that your and your family enjoyed everything.
A bit of a mixup at the reservation desk kept us waiting 20 minutes. Oysters, scallops, and daily fish (Halibut) were all outstanding. A bit pricey but that's the way it is in the Palm Beach area.
Sat outside and really enjoyed it.. Inside looked cold and dark.. But people seemed to enjoy that as well. We would certainly return again.
Hi samt, Thank you for your review. Not sure what happened at the hostess stand but happy to know that once you sat... everything was perfect. Spotos Oyster Bar is the only authentic Oyster Bar and Premiere Seafood Restaurant in the area. Everything we make uses only the freshest ingredients available. For everyone's comfort and safety all of our seating (both inside and out) complies with the guidelines established by the CDC. We look forward to your return!
Had a 7:30 reservation, wasn’t seated until 7:50.
Wasn’t the only one with this issue.
Hi Frea, Thank you for your review. We take every guest comment very seriously. Regarding your wait.... Because we're at 50% occupancy, seating (especially on the weekends) could be a bit challenging. Once seated we have no control over how long someone will stay. We do our best to get you to a table as soon as possible.
Waitress was sweet and kind. But service was a bit difficult at best. It was a birthday and at lesst a dessert tor birthday person should have been offered
This evening was to celebrate an important anniversary and Spoto's was the right choice. All the staff that we encountered were gracious and helpful. Our waiter, Sam, was excellent as were the food and drinks.
Hi Joel, First, thank you for the 5 star review! Next, Thank you for believing that Spotos would be the right choice to have your special occasion! That makes us feel very proud! We will certainly let Sam know that his excellent service contributed to your experience. We look forward to your next visit and Happy Anniversary!
For starters Spotos is spot on when it comes to sanitizing. Social distancing and making sure customers are safe and comfortable. Pat our server couldn’t have done a better job at making sure all our needs were met . Managers Jude and Cheryl made sure that everyone was being taken care of. The food was amazing cooked perfectly fresh and tasted delicious. Ralph has done wonders for this restaurant and absolutely knows how to keep customers happy and returning repeatedly. That’s why we frequent Bimini Twist his other restaurant and now we will be regulars at Spotos!
Thank you for this amazing review! It used to be that the signs of a successful dining experience were food, service and ambiance. now in the era of Covid 19 we have to add comfort and safety. We appreciate you noticing and mentioning all that we're doing on that front! It is also our goal that every guest leave well fed and happy. We will certainly let Pat, Jude and Cheryl know that their attention to detail along with our outstanding food made that happen. We look forward to seeing you again!
Booked through open table and selected anniversary since we were celebrating. Came in the girls in the front seated us in a 4 person table with high traffic even though they had 2 seat booths open. We got switched to the 2 seat booth. Never got acknowledged for our anniversary so why even ask when making reservations if celebrating something. Our waitress was very attentive. We never received a bread basket even though other tables received bread. For appetizer had the steamers and the conch chowder. Both were excellent and flavorful. For the main entree had the yellowtail snapper piccata dish. It was nothing like wham this is different. Also had the seafood pescatore with half lobster. Too much tomatoes and onions in the "stew". I say "stew" because it was very thick for a sauce and also bland. Overall it was mediocre compared to other restaurants we have been too.
Hi Sunce, Because we're at 50% capacity inside, our seating options are very limited. Luckily there was a different table available for you. Regarding Bread Service.... Bread is available upon request. When we used to bring it to the table automatically we found that there was a lot of waste. There are always 3 managers around, had you mentioned to anyone that you didn't like your meal we gladly would've made you something else. We want every guest to leave ell fed and happy!
Food was excellent. Great menu and hard to decide. Husband has oysters and lobster roll, I had Rustica. Service was prompt and attentive.
Hi SharonA Thank you for your review and kind words!
It was very nice to be there food was so very good but the service was impeccable our server Valerie is the main reason I will be back shortly
Hi Shelley, Thank you for the 5 star review! It is always our goal that our guests leave well fed and happy. We will certainly let Valerie know that her great service added to your dining experience. When you make your next reservation you can always request her as your server.
New management new chef - better than ever!! Used to go here a few times a year now it will be a few times a month!! Have not been this pleased with a restaurant and it’s team in a long time.
Thank you so much for your 5 star review, kind words, and loyal support. Yes it's true we have had a few changes lately but as you've noted they're all for the better! We look forward to seeing you again!
The best seafood restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens the staff is amazing and friendly and a great management staff all around..
Wow! Thank you for the 5 star review and kind words! We'd like to think that we are the best. It's nice to hear it from you! Our servers are held to some of the most stringent standards in the industry and they happen to be kind people as well. Our managers have one goal... that each guest leave well fed and happy. We look forward to your return!
Always our favorite place. Best oysters around and the atmosphere is great. Every server we have had there has been top notch.
Hi KristinKozuh, We are always humbled when we learn that we're someone's favorite restaurant! Thank you for your 5 star review and kind words. Spotos is the only authentic Oyster Bar in the area so if you love Oysters we're the place! Our servers are not only held to the most stringent standards in the industry but they happen to be nice people as well! We hope to see you again soon!
Took friends down from Jacksonville and found this great restaurant
Hi Mmcsevans, Whatever it was that brought you to Spotos…. we're grateful! Thank you for your 5 star review and when you're in the neighborhood please come see us again!
I felt very comfortable dining at Spoto’s during this time. The staff wore masks and there was one person who continuously sanitized appropriate areas. I wish the menus were throw aways, however. The outdoor tables were spaced at least 6 feet apart.
The food was great and so was the service. I will be returning!
Thank you for your 5 star review! The cornerstones of a great dining experience used to be food, service and ambiance. Now your comfort and safety are paramount. Thank you for mentioning all the ways Spotos is complying with the CDC and then some! Regarding the menus.... As long as they're wiped down after every use we are now allowed to put them in a plastic sleeve again. We're glad you everything was to your satisfaction and we look forward to your return.
Our service Bill was great. Very professional and pleasant.
Thank you for the 5 star review! We hold our servers to some of the most stringent standards in the industry and they also happen to be nice people! We will certainly let Bill know that his service contributed to your great dining experience!
We enjoyed the outdoor location; nicely spaced. We ordered oysters and they were delicious. Just lacked the sauce we asked for and were assured it was always placed on the tray. Good drinks, a bit slow. Super nice waiter, Javier. Ordered black grouper and it was overcooked but waiter wasn’t around and didn’t come to check on us in a timely manner so just ate it. I did tell him later but even though we were celebrating my husbands birthday, our dessert wasn’t comped or my fish taken off. Javier apologized but that was it. No candle, no happy birthday.
Hi Debs, Thank you for your review. We are doing our best (in terms of CDC compliance) to make our Dine In guests feel safe and comfortable, Thank you for mentioning. Being the only authentic Oyster Bar around, you know ours are the freshest and most delicious! Did you know that there are always 3 managers on the floor? Had you mentioned to any one of them that you didn't like your meal they would've very happily made you something else or removed it from your check. Stay safe and be well.
Very nice. Appreciated the distancing placed by the seating.
Thank you for your review and mentioning the fact that we are doing everything we can to make everyone feel safe and comfortable. In the strange times that we find ourselves, a great dining experience is no longer only about food and service. It is about safety and comfort. We hope to see you again soon!
First time I've been here since they changed ownership. It was very good. Food was excellent. They had strict social distancing, so it was not at all noisy. Service was great.
Hi Bus69, Thank you for the 5 star review! It's true, Spotos changed hands three years ago! Glad we've gotten reacquainted and you had a great experience. It was nice of you to mention that we're doing everything we can to make you feel safe and comfortable during these strange times we find ourselves in. We look forward to your next visit!
Champagne and oysters! They do it so well. A delicious meal as always with exceptionally attentive waitstaff.
Hi DianeC, Thank you for your 5 star review, kind words and loyal support! As people are starting to venture out again...it is humbling to know that so many are choosing Spotos as their 1st place to Dine! Food, Service and ambiance were the cornerstones of a great experience ...now we've added comfort and safety. Champagne and Oysters? I'll have what you're having!
Nellie is the best server everrrrr!!!
We love this place !
Hi JustDomenic, Thank you for the 5 star review and sharing the love! Our servers are held to some of the highest standards in the industry and they also happen to be nice people! We will certainly let Nellie know that her great service added to your dining experience! We look forward to your next visit and in the meantime.... why not follow us on FB and IG?
We always enjoy ourselves at Spoto’s. We love the wait staff, especially Will. We will continue to make this our home away from home. The food is excellent, we are always satisfied. The drinks are also very good.
Hi Julesres, Your comment "we will continue to make this our home away from home" is humbling! Thank you for those sentiments, the 5 star review, kind words and loyal support. We will certainly let Will Know that his great service added to your dining experience. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great service fine food
Hi FredC, Thank you for the 5 star review and kind words!
Another date night at Spoto’s, another
I had the gazpacho soup, delicious!
And the crab cakes for my entree, an excellent choice.
My wife had the Roasted mussels with the herb butter, white wine and LEEKS, which were a perfect addition, the sauce was almost creamy. Of course, French bread for dipping. Yummy!
And the Beet salad which was very tasty.
Our waitress, Elizabeth, was very attentive, friendly, and professional.
An interesting sideline, a young man (we didn’t get his name) was ever present as the ‘Masked Sanitizer’ dressed in a white coat, with spray bottle at the ready, to prepare tables for the next patrons. Nice to see that aspect in practice.
Thank you for yet another great review! We are humbled when we know of guests who dine with us several times a month! The Beet Salad and Mussels with Leeks are items on our new menu. Thank you for trying them and giving them a thumbs up! The "Sanitizer" is someone whose sole function is to walk around sanitizing! In these strange times that we find ourselves in we are doing everything we can to keep our guests and staff safe. Again, thank you for sharing the love!
We’ve been regulars at Spoto’s for over 15 years. But as it has changed it’s become increasingly disappointing. The oysters are still great! However, the food as well as the service & atmosphere
Is not. And...what happened to the wine list?? Not returning anytime soon.
Hi Fantastic, Thank you for your review and loyal support. We take every guest comment very seriously as we want everyone to leave well fed and happy. In order to address your remarks properly I would need to know more about your experience. I'm sure you know that at any given time there are at least 3 managers walking the floor. It would be their pleasure to take care of any situation you might've had regarding food and/or service. Please try us again....a fan for 15 years!
We went two weeks ago and it was great. They raised all the prices on food and drink by at least 20% since then and most of the fish items were labeled MP . When we asked the waiter had to go find out what the costs were. we've been going there for years and the prices were never low but now the food is just not worth what they are charging. we will not go back there
Hi jamesm, We just rolled out a new menu for the 1st time in 3 years. While there were many increases to us during that time we didn't pass them on to our guests. The prices on our new menu now reflect the reality of the market. Because of the current Broken Supply Chain many ingredients are hard to get and the price of those items can fluctuate daily that is why we list them as Market. We're known for our impeccable reputation of serving the freshest seafood. We hope you dine with us again.
My wife and I enjoyed our first date night out, since the COVID-19 lockdown, at our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Spoto’s has new ownership, and has not skipped a beat in retaining the consummate quality of food, service and ambience. We had the pleasure of speaking with Jude, the GM, at length, having met him prior at the Curbside Pick Up.
We were impressed with his involvement in that process.
We dined outside, social distancing was observed, all servers were masked and gloved.
Our waitress, Valerie, was a delight, sweet, attentive, and very professional. Our Busser,Ross, was equally attentive, though seemingly invisible, in clearing the table during the course of the meal.
We were introduced to Jim, the new Manager, and look forward to seeing him on future dinner dates,
The food was, impeccable, as expected, we always enjoy our meals at Spoto’s.
Spoto’s shall remain our #1 restaurant for dates, family, friends and celebrations!
WOW!!! Thank you for those kind words, loyal support and 5 star review. Yes it's true, Spotos is under new ownership but that happened 3 years ago! It is a beautiful tribute to us that like yourselves, many people chose Spotos as their 1st venture out post Covid. As noted we are doing everything possible to keep everyone well fed, happy, safe and comfortable. We will certainly let Valerie and Ross know that their great service added to your dining experience. We look forward to your next visit.
The staff was attentive and the manager came by and thanked us for being there. The food was very good. The beer selection was not as good as I would like.
Hi RodneyB, Thank you for your 5 star review! As more and more people are feeling comfortable dining out, we make it a point to thank every guest for choosing Spotos! Please come see us again soon!
Fully understand the constraints you are under, however here are a few comments:
1. Remove the tables you aren’t using. We were sent to the back bar which was also serving to store unused tables.
2. Xs with blue painters tape on the tables added to the back storeroom fee.
3. I thought menus were to be a one time use thing. It was obvious that our menus had been previously used from the wrinkled nature. It appeared they had gotten wet and dried out.
We drove to Spoto’s specifically from Palm City. I will return for another try, but not until normalcy returns in full.
We had the whole restaurant to our selfs. The food was very good. I enjoyed my clam spaghetti.
Hi Happy, Thank you for the 5 star review! We hope to see you again soon!
We always love visiting Spoto’s and this visit did not disappoint. The Cutuit Oysters were SUPERB! The service provided by Ryan was equally EXCELLENT! Spoto’s has always been our fav and will forever be our fav!
We are always humbled when we learn that we are someone's favorite restaurant! Thank you for the accolades, the 5 star review and your loyal support. We will certainly let Ryan know that his great service added to your dining experience. If you're not already following us on FB or IG it is highly suggested! See you again soon!
We got out Easter dinner with take out from here and it was fantastic. Now we can dine in I had to have oysters. They have the best, hands down and the rest of the menu is just as good. Go and enjoy!
Hi Klink7, Thank you for your 5 star review and kind words. Spotos is the only authentic oyster bar around and our shellfish is flown in several times a week from the cold waters of the Northern Atlantic! That is why it tastes so good and fresh! Thank you for mentioning our other menu items as well because we do have something for everyone including people who do not like seafood! We look forward to serving you again!
A very positive evening, great food and service. Masks gloves and social distancing. Well done and would return
Hi FionaM, Thank you for the 5 star review and kind words. In these very strange times that we find ourselves it is critical that our guests feel safe and comfortable.
