CityPlace is the heart of West Palm Beach’s revival. Comprised of 600,000 square feet of retail businesses, including 20 restaurants, a 20-screen theater, open-air plaza with free public concerts, an office tower, a cultural arts theater and 1000 private residences, CityPlace has been fully integrated into downtown West Palm Beach as a neighborhood with old-world architecture, beautiful fountains and sidewalk cafes which create an atmosphere reminiscent of a European town center.  Restaurants offer above average quality in terms of food, service and price. We strongly recommend making reservations, especially on weekends, in order to avoid long waits. Park at any of the affordable adjacent public garages. Here are a few restaurants which we think stand out:

  1. City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill– Always busy, this smart casual grill has good food at a moderate price.  The location is ideal near to the main CityPlace garage on the 2nd floor and with the large outdoor covered terrace with a view towards the main square.  We highly recommend making a reservation…sitting at the bar is also an option to eat. 700 South Rosemary Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33401, Tel 561-366-0071
  2. Il Bellagio – This is a perennial favorite for visitors and locals alike because of it’s attractive location on the main square overlooking the huge fountain and stage where there are free concerts regularly. The food and service is consistently good to very good, especially for the price.  Extensive outdoor seating. Reservations are recommended. 600 South Rosemary Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33401, Tel. 561- 659-6160 /
  3. Thai Jo – Located on the 2nd level, Thai Jo offers both Thai cuisine and excellent sushi. 700 South Rosemary Avenue, West Palm Beach, FL 33401, Tel. 561- 832-3545,
  4. Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse – Not all Ruth’s Chris Steakhouses are created equal.  This Ruth’s Chris is an absolute standout for 2 reasons:  excellent food and a fabulous dining room.  The service is good too.  The dining room is on multiple levels with panoramic views of the Kravis Center.  For an unbelievable steak, go here! 651 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach – Tel. 561- 514-3544
  5. Pampas Brazilian Grille – Great value for money in this Brazilian style steak house. This restaurant is definitely for meat lovers, but the “all you can eat” salad buffet is one of the best in the area and you can order it without the meat.  651 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach – Tel. (561) 444-2147
