Best Upscale Vegan Restaurant Around!

Every dish was nicely presented delicious comfort food, loved the atmoshpere above the water, we returned again during the 4 day stay in Palm Beach. We had the delicious half salad starters with gorgonzola/pear and caesar. For mains, loved the Chik Parmesean, the lasagna and the bolognese, for dessert, the truffles were great, the tres leches was a bit dry but flavorful. April, our server was terrific, helpful and made the visit festive.

Pros: Every dish was wonderful, Nice outdoor vibe, Best restaurant around

Cons: Can be busy and wait without reservations

Hit or Miss

First off, we live within walking distance and have been patrons of Darbster for many years. Sometimes it's fantastic and sometimes it's very disappointing. The taste of the food definitely goes up and down in waves. The raw food items are usually quite good. I like the pear gorgonzola salad quite a bit. We've had flatbread specials and loved it the first time, second time the crust was very stale. We’ve been served burnt food. Desserts are usually pretty good. Had a special that was advertised as "Cordon Bleu" once, which was a favorite pre-vegan dish of mine. It came with a tomato sauce on top. Cordon Bleu should *not* have tomato sauce, ever. Advice: order from the list of raw foods, be aware of abundant use of meat subs, enjoy the fantastic setting.

Pros: Beautiful patio, Good vibes, Live musicians on some nights

Cons: Can be hard to park, Food is hit or miss

I don't care if their food tasted like dog food every night. The fact that they use all of their profits for their animal assistance foundation deserves 5 stars and to be free of negative criticism.

Perfectly valid criticisms.
I have found their food to be hit or miss; mostly miss. Their overall service has been poor in my experience, as well.

Must go!

Absolutely LOVE Darbsters!! Since moving back to the area a few months ago, I’ve almost already became a weekly regular here. Best vegan spot in west palm beach hands down - so many delicious options! I’ve never had something here I didn’t like.

Hidden Gem

We had such a wonderful dinner at Darbster!
Had the Barley Risotto & Lasagna and both were excellent!
For dessert we had the brownie with ice cream. It was a huge piece and so so good. Not too sweet, brownie and ice cream were delicious.
The service was excellent and to top it off we sat out in the “garden” area that they had created which was just the loveliest ambiance! Highly recommended for a romantic night out!

Great Experience

I’ve been here three times and had excellent service. Really enjoyed the pasta dish with mushrooms and the cheese cake. Wish they would bring back the bbq sliders, didn’t enjoy the pork sliders as much. Hummingbird cake was Devine but a little rich. Will come back to try more.

Pros: Whole menu is vegan, Reasonable pricing

Vegan Restaurant Done Right

Darbster is one of the few, best, vegan restaurants in South Florida. A lot of vegan restaurants, in South Florida, make the same basic mistakes, small portions, high prices, mediocrity/boring recipes, paper plates plastic forks, careless staff and management, just after the "vegan", what ever that means, market. Darbster is one of the very few that are thoughtful about these basic, fundamental concepts. AND, Darbster's owners make $0.00, using their profits to fund their animal rescue organization. darbsterfoundation dot com. A win, win vegan dining experience.

Pros: Great food, good prices, a real restaurant , Proceeds to animal foundation, Many years of success

Cons: None
