This is one of those places you want to love...it's cozy wth a handful of tables, the owners actually work the room and kitchen, the menu is small and manageable and you just want to root for the Home-Town folk to make it big...it comes pretty close to being perfect. We went there early at 6:30 for a pre-theatre dinner. It was bustling when we entered with a couple large parties (6-8pp) and all the other tables filled except for ours. We sat and ordered cocktails and took in the room. It seemed that everyone was in high spirits and the tempo was upbeat and jovial. After perusing the menus we opted for a couple appetizers; snails and salmon deviled eggs and a Filet Mignon and Pork Tenderloin. Everything was flavorful and presented straight away with none of the persnickety fussiness that adorns so many presentations. Linens were so crispy they practically stood up at attention and the small things like water refills and in between course table crumbing was right on cue without being smothering. It appeared that staff were trained in the old ways of service....being seen, but not heard and waiting to remove plates and utensils when there was a break in conversation not barging in under the pretense of "service" and announcing to the world if "you're finished with that." Dinner was an enjoyable respite from the humdrum. We stayed for coffee and by the time we were finished, the dining room had emptied out. If you want to enjoy the company of your dinner companion(s) then by all means go to Maison. This is one restauranteur who knows and understands that it's not always about cutting edge food or cutesy server performances, but rather about creating memories and bing a backdrop to its patrons.

Had to find a good place that was not far from PBI airport. Found this place on Trip Advisor. While it is small and hard to find, it is well worth the trip. The veal was excellent as was the Caesar salad. Had a nice bottle of french white wine.

We had a great dinner our annual dinner with friends from Delray.We came from Jupiter so its a perfect half way mark.This is our fourth event and I swear every dinner gets better.They were very busy but you could still hear. The wait staff especially the owner Carlos made us feel like we were coming home. the food sooo good everyone loved their dinners. There is a new salad since I've been there caprese with goat cheese. So good. In short everyone very Happy all meals a hit and everyone left very Happy. Not waiting a year before I come back.

We met friends who were flying into Palm Beach for dinner at Maison Carlos. I had never been here but noticed it was voted on list of best neighborhood bistros by Open Table and it is convenient to airport. What a winner. Carlos the owner was charming. The list of appetizers amazing. I wanted 5 courses of appetizers. I had Vongole, our friends had Mac and Cheese with Lobster and Duck. My husband said the vichysoise was the best he had ever had. We are staying in Jupiter and though not exactly in my neighborhood I want to visit again before we go home
