Diner’s Choice: Best Restaurants in Palm Beach County by OpenTable


Ever sit in a restaurant for the first time and love it so much that you’re excited to write a thorough review or give it five stars on Facebook? Well, every time you do that on OpenTable, they’re watching. 

Every month, the online restaurant reservation service analyzes your diner reviews (all 400,000 of them) and sorts the results by category: Best Overall, Best Service, Best Value, Best Food and Best Ambiance

The data is awesome. Because of it, you get to discover new favorites and see where your current favs hold up. 

Got a favorite spot in town? Did it make the latest list? Here’s the top Diner’s Choice Winners in Palm Beach County:

Best Overall + Best Ambiance

Circle Brunch at The Breakers: Our food critic, Liz Balmaseda, calls Circle Brunch “The mother of all traditional brunches.” The tall, embellished ceilings and breathtaking views of the ocean are unfogettable. The Breakers’ Circle Room: 1 S. County Rd., Palm Beach; 561-655-6611

Best Food

Those that find themselves at Joseph’s Wine Bar & Cafe leave raving about the family-style Mediterraniean dishes and large selection of wine.  The spinach pine nut turnovers ($12) are a customer favorite. Joseph's Wine Bar & Cafe: 200 N.E. Second Ave., Delray Beach; 561-272-6100

Best Service 

At Table 427, good service begins with the coyz eatery’s owner and chef, Roberto Villegas. Just like the DJ at a cookout or family party, Villegas takes requests and even has a “No Menu” menu for customers who want an exclusive, five-course meal he designed on his own. Table 427: 427 Northwood Road, West Palm Beach; 561-506-8211
