An excerpt from our Food Editor’s 2015 Critic’s Choice Awards:

Best service in Palm Beach County: The Woods

Tiger Woods, superstar golfer and restaurateur, brought a stroke of excellence to Jupiter’s Harbourside Place when he opened The Woods in August. The place has steakhouse sophistication and sports bar accessibility, good meat dishes and top-notch service.

This is where servers in Nike kicks and sportswear hand out luxuriously hot towels after rounds of finger food. Servers check in often and command the menu. Their bosses check in as well.

All this in a jammed, busy restaurant, in a region stricken by spotty, inconsistent service. It is clear exceptional service is a priority here. Nike sneaker-induced speed accounts for only part of it.

The Woods: 129 Soundings Ave., at Harbourside Place, Jupiter; 561-320-9627;
