45 NE 21st Ave., Deerfield Beach
Contemporary American/French. A little bit of Palm Beach, a little bit of France come to Deerfield Beach in the form of this elegant, sophisticated restaurant in the oceanfront Royal Blues Hotel. Service is as stellar as the views from the cozy, modestly opulent dining room, notable for the 1,500-gallon aquarium...
2006 NW Executive Center Circle, Boca Raton
American. This location is something of a Bermuda Triangle for restaurants, with at least four restaurants preceding this local outpost of a Canadian chain that styles itself a "New York grill and bar." What Madison's has going for it is an exceedingly handsome and capacious space, and service that is...
21077 Powerline Road, Boca Raton
Contemporary Kosher. This west Boca restaurant is named after a Brooklyn avenue in a district known for its food. Here you’ll find very good food, and no dairy products are used. Try the Hibachi salmon, all-kale Caesar salad, the schnitzel sandwich.
141 Via Naranjas, Boca Raton
You've probably licked postage stamps that are larger than this tiny jewel box of a restaurant, but what it lacks in space it more than makes up for in charm, sophistication and imaginative, expertly crafted food. Virtually everything is made in-house, from the trio of breads that first grace...

9101 Lakeridge Blvd., Boca Raton
Classic style and classically oriented French cuisine come together at this elegant yet comfortable restaurant in a west Boca shopping mall. Though there are a few Asian and Italian-inflected dishes on the menu, at its heart La Ferme ("the farm") is as French as the Eiffel Tower. Start with...
999 E. Camino Real
The Waterstone Resort & Marina's signature restaurant, Boca Landing, offers the city's only waterside dining and shows off its prime location and views. The mostly small-plates menu features Asian-inflected tuna tartare, green curry mussels and fried calamari. Probably the best dish, though, is the thoroughly continental filet mignon with crab and béarnaise, with wickedly luscious house-made hazelnut gelato coming in a very close second. Dinner nightly.
290 E. Atlantic Ave.
God is in the details at this upscale trattoria, and He doesn’t miss much, including stellar service and an outstanding wine menu. Ingredients like Buffalo mozzarella, house-made pastas and San Marzano tomatoes are first-rate, and

This local mainstay does Italian classics and its own lengthy list of ambitious specials with unusual skill and aplomb. The cozy dining room is a welcome respite from the outside world, and service is at a level not always seen in local
233 West Lantana Road, Lantana
If you’re hungry for Maine lobster, plucked live out of giant tanks and cooked to order, this modest replica of a 1920s train station is the place to go. Lobsters come in all sizes (up to 8 pounds) and are so reasonably priced that getting a
