Sant Am­broeus serves pas­tas, pizza, sal­ads and sand­wiches. There’s also a cof­fee bar and a gela­te­ria. Prices aren’t bad by is­land stan­dards — some en­trees cost less than $20 — and the qual­ity of the food is stel­lar.


Posh. The din­ing room is dec­o­rated with black-and­white floors, strik­ing mir­rors and vi­brant up­hol­stery. A ge­lato cart marks the front en­trance to the space, which once was home to Del Frisco’s Grille. This eatery is part of a Man­hat­tan chain.


The prix fixe lunch ($25) 340 Royal Poin­ciana Way, Palm Beach, 561-285-7990 Tues.-Sat., 8 a.m.-11 p.m.; Sun.-M, 8 a.m.-10 p.m. seemed pricey but turned out to be a com­par­a­tive bar­gain. The appetizer, en­trée and dessert left me stuffed. For my main dish, I chose Wagyu shor t r i b sl i der s , which in­cluded ten­der beef topped with tangy jalapeno mayo and pick­led red onions. And the pre-meal bread was fresh and hearty.


Ex­cel­lent food, flaw­less ser­vice and a unique vibe.


Pro­fes­sional. Our server vis- ited of­ten and de­liv­ered im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice un­til the end, when the pace slowed a bit.


Quiet. The din­ing room was mostly empty dur­ing our slow-sea­son visit.


Yes and no. The fun vibe makes Sant Am­broeus more kid-friendly than most Palm Beach eater­ies, but it’s still a bit fancy for fam­ily night.
