New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Having dinner at By Word of Mouth is a bit like being invited to dine at the home of a fussy middle-aged matron, a person considered a very good cook in her day, someone who once published a newsletter widely admired by friends and neighbors ("Kathryn's Kitchen") and who occasionally contributed recipes to the local daily between editing the annual Junior League cookbook and organizing the school bake sale. Nothing about the place - not the sponged walls and faux-grained paneling, not the menu of seafood lasagna and beef tenderloin and homemade squash soup, not the iced layer cakes beckoning from the refrigerated case - suggests how the world, and the kinds of things we tend to eat, has changed since the day Ellen Cirillo opened her catering business and restaurant off Oakland Park Boulevard in 1981. Still, these two simple rooms, the hearty food, and the happy service are as comforting and cozy as ever.
Tips from foursquare
Be sure to always leave some room for a cookie that's always offered with the bill.

Best small gourmet restaurant, and bakery. Shhh..it's a secret! But it is worth sharing. The menu varies daily, depending on the freshest ingredients available, we just love it.
I'll get in trouble for this, but just know this is one of the best small eateries in town is all. Gourmet dining, different menu daily, and the best bakery I've come across. They never advertise.
