Ten Best Restaurants in West Palm Beach

Let's face it: West Palm Beach has never been known for its dining scene. But that doesn't mean there aren't some truly stellar dining options -- you just have to know where to look.

These days, we have our eye on a few places -- both new and old. Whether you're headed for a night out on the town in CityPlace, looking to go out somewhere off Clematis Street, or are even willing to wander into local neighborhoods like Northwood, there's a little bit of something for everyone.

Maison Carlos
10. Maison Carlos
This French- and Italian-themed restaurant opened in 2002, with its original location off Clematis Street downtown. But after seven years, the owners -- Carlos and Lanie Fariase -- decided to move their establishment a couple of miles south to the city's El Cid neighborhood, transitioning to a smaller restaurant with a neighborhood vibe. A family-run establishment, the owner is there most every night helping to take orders. The restaurant has just 11 tables and serves a nostalgic take on Italian, Latin, and French cuisine. The menu offers everything from oysters Rockefeller and vichyssoise to a roasted beet salad and chicken and mushroom risotto.

Il Bellagio
9. Il Bellagio
Miami restaurateur Tom Billante has operated enough Italian chow houses to know what he's doing. His eateries -- owned with partners and family -- offer big, moderately priced menus featuring homemade pasta, wood-oven pizzas, grilled veal and pork chops, imaginatively composed salads, and good, cheap house wine. Il Bellagio at CityPlace has flourished and expanded over the past 13 years thanks to this formula, and a knockout location directly facing the center's splashing fountain and live music stage doesn't hurt. The patio seats 150, and it's a treat to be outdoors on a fine night with a bowl of fresh pasta, a grilled pork chop, or a tuna tartar. The newly renovated restaurant has added a number of creative dishes to the original menu since reopening last year, with an expanded appetizer section that helps get the night started in a whole new way.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

If a Rodney Mayo restaurant is going to make it to this list, I really think Hullabaloo is much better than Howley's. Just sayin'.

Also, Okeechobee Steakhouse no longer has a salad bar.
