My girlfriend and I were in the Boca area yesterday and ended up in Mizner Park. We decided to go to Racks because the lunch menu was appealing!
Our server was very nice, and knowing that we were starving, brought out some delicious pretzel rolls with a mustard spread - nice and warm and very tasty.
I ordered the mozzarella pizza, which was good, but not that special. I also had the truffle fries which were amazing. My girlfriend loved the trout she ordered, and the server was more than happy to bring her extra sauce when she asked for more. She wasn't happy with her fries though. She seemed to think they had been cooked, got cold, and were re-fried for a second to warm them up (they did look unusually dark to me too). I gave her some of my truffle fries, but now she owes me one lol

We have been dining at Racks since they opened. One bad meal after another. It's never entirely terrible, that's why we continue to try it again. One of us either has poor, over or undercooked food or we wait too long (45) mins for entrees, or...And this is what really inspired me to write this "warning review," one of us has an improperly cooked entree, asks to have it corrected(either remade or cooked more depending on the dish), and the time it takes exceeds the other people at the table's entire dining experience. So, after having an unacceptable entree sent back, one waits over 30 mins then eats alone... Ok, great. How about offering to compensate on the bill? Nope. Owner himself, Gary Racks, should be out of the business. Once,fine,twice,not so fine, 3x,you're out.

The oysters were very interesting from a variety of locales. The food was good, but for the price, I'd go many other places within 1,000 feet of this restaurant. It's very small and when it's hot in the summer, you have few places to sit inside. Drinks are crazy expensive as well. Walk outside and whatever restaurant you see is much better.

I knew as soon as we walked in the door that this was my kind of place. Fab Decor and Happy hour. Food was wonderful. Crabcakes were the best I've had! Great location on Mizner which has wonderful shops and art galleries. Looking forward to returning on my next visit.

Our dinner here was our favorite. We liked it so much, we ate here twice. Our waiter was wonderful. He suggested everything from our drinks to dessert. Very cool decor. They have a great happy hour. Check it out.
