Good drinks but VERY PRICY, this is not Manhattan! $14 for a martini that isn't full! We went during 'Happy Hour and were charged as if it were later, told the drinks we had we not covered altho they were the last time we were there?

“We are going back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

About 7:30 Friday evening without reservations we were seated immediately by Lily who is a real sweetheart.. The waiter brought over complimentary pita with sun dried tomato pesto, outrageous. I tried the one $15.00 chopin bloodymary with blue cheese stuffed olives and smoked oyster, it was delicious. I had the crayfish chorizo chowder which I regret only ordering a cup, we shared the tuna tartar with smashed avocado, just the right amount of heat... perfect. My wife had the short ribs we both loved it and I had the Madagascar Prawn, wow, wow, wow, the wild mushroom ravioli that was under the prawn was outrageous. The corn muffin that was served with the short ribs was worthy of being a dessert. Although we were stuffed and skipped dessert, though the homemade coconut ice cream sounded great, we knocked back a couple of ginger liquor with a french cognac on the rocks to finish a great meal.
Lily, we will be back.
Thanks
JK

“Great food, great ambiance, great service for a large group”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

I hosted a group of nine business colleagues at Patio Delray for dinner and it was fantastic. We were seated immediately on the patio and the service was outstanding - attentive but not intrusive from drinks to dessert. It's a unique and diverse menu. The food was excellent - you have to try the Madagascar prawns - and everyone loved it. Lily and her staff made it a great evening.

“Pleasantly surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

What makes this interesting restaurant different is that it is not on Atlantic Avenue...Definitely a place to go to away from the hustle and bustle...A place where you can have a conversation...and really hear the music.. The Owner is "hands on" , and is very gracious and friendly. When we arrived she came up and welcomed us...Most of the patrons there were regulars...
The menu is varied...and I think that there is something for everyone...
The atmosphere was calm and elegant. The waiters were very attentive...including the Owner who came to ask us if everything was to our satisfaction..Our meal was perfect-our guests raved about their food as well...I had the Ahi Tuna... lightly seared-it just melted in my mouth...
We will most definitely go back.....

“The Best Kept Secret In Delray”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

Wonderful experience. Great food and a wonderful atmosphere. Ms. Lily is the owner and a wonderful hostess/owner We eat here five days a week both lunch and dinner and it is off the busy Avenue. Just love it.

Forget what others say. This place is consistent in service and food.
