Fresh & Tasty! - Edit

My first time here and I was so impressed! I wish I didn't live 2 hours away. Love, love, love the avocado toast! I could eat it everyday. The cinnamon roll was SO good. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think it was actually a little too sweet.

We ordered some sort of ice cream dessert and it was to die for.

I highly recommend!

Pricey but fantastic food - Edit

Not the place to go if you're trying to maintain a budget, but the food is superb. Head to the market for juices or dessert, too. I've been here countless times over the years (since it opened) and can say that all in all CK has great service and an all-vegan menu of exquisite food.

Pros: organic, high quality ingredients, delicious

Cons: can be quite expensive

Extraordinary - Edit

Chef Christopher's vegan establishment should serve as a model for other plant based eateries. How refreshing to find a place where soy products do not monopolize the menu! It's all about the most creative things to do with fresh vegetables. Try the veggie chili and the mock tuna sandwich. The citrus kale is perfect. Salads are bountiful and there is variety of nut cheeses. Outstanding food and service.

Pros: soy free

Cons: None

worth the trip - Edit

I've been to christophers a few times now and every visit is an amazing experience. The staff is friendly ,knowledgable and gives great service.
One thing I noticed that the other reviews didnt mention is if you go on a wednesday , Christophers has wine wednesday. half price bottles of wine. They have a very nice selection of wine to choose from.
food wise I love everything I've had from the veggie burger, the lettuce cups (which can be a meal in itself) and any of the bowls.
my husband who is not vegan even likes this place and is willing to keep coming back.
While they are not cheap, you pay for what you get, fresh, delicious, well portioned food in a clean modern decorated environment. well worth every penny.

Pros: fresh, varied menu, wine wednesday!

Cons: none

Upscale plant-based dining in Palm Beach Gardens - Edit

Visited Christopher's Kitchen on a friend's recommendation, and am glad I did. Lovely restaurant setting, white tablecloths, silverware, fine china, glassware; seemed popular with the "ladies who lunch" crowd since they populated the seating, indoors and out, when I visited. Friendly staff directed me to another entrance when I asked for takeout.
I opted for the pesto wrap, walnut tuna & couple of cookies from the prepared foods selections, since I was traveling and time was a factor.
Staff person in the takeout section friendly and knowledgeable as well, answering ingredients questions and advising their use of honey in some dishes.
Excellent pesto wrap! Pesto, sprouts & julienned vegetables in collard leaves with a cashew cream dipping sauce.
The walnut tuna salad was tasty, some crunch from the diced celery & onions, light seafood taste with no aftertaste.
Both Rawfully delicious, and will order again when in the area.
The lemon ginger cookie was the best, moist while maintaining a slight bit of crunch with delicious blend of the two flavors.
The chocolate chip cookie was also top notch, with big chunks of chocolate instead of chips, moist and firm.
The prices reflect the ambience of Christopher's Kitchen, expensive, yet reflects the care & skill that goes into preparing such delicious plant based foods, both raw and cooked.
Looking forward to dining in and trying their cooked foods on my next visit to the area.
In an outdoor mall area, so ample parking. Convenient location, near major freeways.

Pros: Mostly vegan except for honey in some dishes, Delicious raw & cooked foods, Friendly, knowledgeable staff

Cons: Expensive, Not 100% vegan, honey used in come dishes

Food is amazing & healthy! - Edit

This is one of my favorite places to eat at in PBC. The power bowl is outstanding! I also recommend any of their pizzas (my favorite is the Biancoverde). A must try even if you're not a vegan or vegetarian.

Pros: Nice ambiance, Healthy food

Cons: A little pricey

Favorite Veg restaurant in Palm Beach County - Edit

Christopher's Kitchen is really good. NYC good. It's also nearly as expensive as NYC food; so be warned and go for a special occasion.

Current favorites are the vegan nachos, which are a nice size portion and come with awesome vegan "cheese" that is house made and cashew based. The White Truffle & Mushroom Pizza is my favorite dinner entree with cremini, shiitake, portabella, and white mushrooms, truffle oil, scallions, macadamia ricotta, oregano. It's really amazing. The avocado ginger roll is also really good.

I love that the food is organic and healthy! I also enjoy that they serve both raw food and cooked food, as I generally enjoyed the cooked entrees best. Wine is nice. They also have a dessert case with lots of little cookies and truffles... they're not cheap but they are sooooooo good! It's a great place for a romantic dinner. Or you can sit outside with your dog for a more casual night. They have recently started serving brunch, but I have not yet tried their brunch menu.

Lots of juice and smoothie options too, and you can even pick up a container of delicious Miyoko vegan cheese from their to-go area (instead of ordering online from the West coast).

Fancy vegan food in Palm Beach County, a must - Edit

We have been customers for years and enjoy the food on special occasions as most of it is very high in fat and not on our regular high carb eating plan. With that said, the food is great, organic and always of the highest quality and freshness. They have organic wines, a juice bar and raw vegan desserts as well. Lots to chose from, try the tacos (raw) or the burrito bowl which is my favorite. The flatbreads are good as is the faux tuna sandwich which comes in a collard leaf or bread. We're not fans of the veggie burgers. They work hard to accommodate requests and are always friendly. Gotta visit while you are in South Florida, there truly is no place like it, it's very special.

Pros: organic, fresh, gourmet, variety and creativity, fresh juice and desserts

Cons: nyc prices, too much fat, need some simple carb dishes

fantastic! - Edit

We had the Mac n cheese and the soup of the day for our starters. The Mac n cheese is excellent and the soup was fantastic! The vegan sausage pizza is super tasty as well and the Super pad Thai dish is excellent! This place is an awesome representation of a solid whole food plant based restaurant. Great atmosphere and good service made our stop an excellent experience.

Pros: super tasty whole food, sharp looking , well lit restaurant , great friendly service

Cons: might seem a bit pricey for some

Good, but Pricey - Edit

My husband and I ate there while visiting from out of town. I got the Heirloom Tomato Lasagna. It was very fresh and tasted good, but was way too little food. The food was beautiful in it's presentation. But, I was disappointed in the lasagne. I would hardly consider that a meal and I have had a lot of vegan lasagne that impressed me more. I did end up also getting the walnut "tuna" salad and that was very good, except that it tasted a little sweeter than I think it should. Everything tasted a little sweeter than it should. My husband got the power bowl and he shared that with me. The sweet flavor detracted from it's flavor appeal. He really loved it, though.

Pros: Posh, if you want that, Fresh food, Tasted decent

Cons: Too sweet, Too much sugar and honey, Pricey!

My husband and I visited today and we had the pleasure of being treated to the great food that we eat in our daily lifestyles. WITHOUT having to prepare it myself. :-) I was all smiles and could hardly contain my excitement. It's not very often that we can find all organic, plant based, or raw food while traveling, all in one place! What a wonderful experience. The food was so good and perfect, that we just had to indulge in dessert (which we are not typically dessert eaters). We thoroughly enjoyed everything and GREATLY appreciate all of the labor, science and love that has gone into to creating this wonderful place. The Manager Gina, and the our server, Page really made us feel at home, being very patient with my questions, and excitement. THANK YOU CHRISTOPHER! Now, when will you be publishing a cookbook with your incredible recipes? MUCH LOVE!

Amazing Every Time - Edit

I have dined here now four times and it is great every time. The food is fresh and Christopher is a genius with Vegan food. Tried the California Veggie Pizza which is new on their menu tonight. Best pizza I've ever had. The crust is fantastic. The food is pricey but well worth it!

Pros: Variety of menu, Friendly staff, Outdoor seating available

Don't miss this one - Edit

Last week we did a lunch at Christopher's Kitchen. We were a bit late but the restaurant was good packed with guests who enjoyed the food.
We ordered a starter: houmous plate, tomato "mozarella" (raw) starter.
Entree: raw vegan pizza and Tuna Salad Sandwich. All were amazing good.
The veggies were more tasty than they oranic veggies at Whole Foods.
At dessert we took: a billions homemade chocolade bar and a raw lemon cheese cake. Wonderfull looking and great tasting.
Waiters are very friendly and nice vegan friendly guests from all ages who dressed well.
Christofers is one off the restaurants who brings vegan food to a new level around the world. People who taste this food don't want go back to animal products!

We did dinner last night. Wow, this place is amazing. So good. And there chocolates... heaven.

August 28 2014 we went again. This is fantastic. If you know all the work this kitchen made in the food, get all the best vegetables than it is absolute not expensive. People don't realize often what is behind a good meal. Hope this place will be around forever!

Excellent but pricey - Edit

My overall impression of Palm Beach Gardens is that it is an expensive area to live so I guess if you live there, you are probably used to high prices.

The food was great. My husband had a burrito wrap that he loved and I had a great Mexican bowl that was labeled "very spicy." I asked for the hot sauce on the side and I can't figure out if they forgot to bring it out or they put the hot sauce on it and it really wasn't that spicy. It had a kick, but I wouldn't call it very spicy. Either way, it was very good and very filling.

Their smoothies were outrageously expensive compared to what we are used to paying. The vast majority were $14 and I think there were a couple that were "only" $9. I can't imagine ever paying $14 for blended up fruit. There were many families there with young kids who had smoothies so we much be cheap! lol Glad our teens weren't with us or that would have been one expensive lunch.

Pros: Great, fresh, healthy food, Nice area

Cons: Pricey

Worth the visit - Edit

I return and return to Christopher’s Kitchen monthly to meet up with a Vegan dining group I belong to. The back room provides a large wood slab table with highboy chairs and we find it a fun place to get together and dine. I also visit when I am in the area teaching or shopping.
I appreciate the quality of vegetables and the innovative ideas however I feel there is still a way for owner and head chef Christopher to go as far as really understanding ethnic styles and flavors.
I find the Asian dishes far too sweet, the legumes far too undercooked. The Salad with quinoa has very little grain and the prices—well those are high.
So why do I eat there? This is why: There is nothing else around that has anything near to this menu. Fresh crispy vegetables chopped and massages to bliss in a variety of salads, sandwiches and my favorite—the burgers.
Trust me; I am not in any way a “veggie burger person.” I would never purchase a store-bought variety. That to me is disgusting. I do however make a variety of delicious concoctions and my own take on bean-based burgers. My new inspiration comes from this scullery. There is one at Christopher’s worth the hour drive it takes me to get there.
I cannot seem to get off the Spicy Newporter burger. It is a symphony of flavors constructed primarily of walnuts and vegetables. This subtly warm “burger” is decorated with jalapeños avocado. I detect a hint of Dr. Cow’s vegan style aged nut cheese in this pâté—a favorite secret cheese weapon of this restaurant. I recommend it wrapped burrito style in collard greens with the addition of sprouts for extra crunch and extra peppers for added heat. I am from Arizona so the east coast idea of hot pepper is a joke to me!
Other go-to items on the menu are the sushi rolls. These innovative inventions pack a ton of textures and flavor into the seaweed wrapped cylinders. The good news is if you want additions and subtractions Christopher’s Kitchen likes to appear concerned about your needs.
Have I been blissed out? Yes. Has this occurred each time? No. Unfortunately the endless stream of new faces on the staff creates an inconsistency. Will I return? Yes. I suggest that you be very clear about what you desire with your waiter.
Please be sure to save room for desert. The chocolates are sublime and the pies are very nice as well. One of my friends devours the entire sundae for two each time she is there!
