It’s such a nice change from your typical restaurants, especially in Boca Raton. I have and will definitely recommend this restaurant to others. I just think it’s so unique for South Florida with all the Rock n’ Roll vibe of an L.A. foodie restaurant. It’s full of unexpected flavors. This place will make you try and love food you would never try. It’s definitely a must.

Rebel House was easy to find and we found a parking space right in front of restaurant. We were seated immediately at 6 pm. (We had reservations.) The place started to become busy at about 7:30 pm. Our server, Adam, was very informative and made sure our needs were taken care of.
We ordered the Pre-fixed menu. Portions were ample considering it was four courses! The room was filled with red booths; interesting painted “sayings”; a youthful and fun vibe, really amazing! We were impressed with the construction and complex flavors of each dish, including a side of Brussel Sprouts that were nothing short of brilliant! The quality and presentation of the pre-fixed meal was amazing -- true “chef” quality deserving of four stars. A gem of a find. We had a very nice experience. The distance is quite far for me but worth the experience. Will definitely go back!
We arrived at the time of our reservation and were seated immediately. It was a bit cold due to the air conditioner overhead blowing directly on top of us. We waited for the other half of our party while feasting on the spicy popcorn they brought out for us, kind of a cute change from bread. We took in the art work. Some of it was a bit disturbing but I am ok with creative expression. It was certainly interesting people watching and not what you would think of as a typical Boca Raton crowd. Filled with tattoos, angled and dyed haircuts and an original crowd. Our group ordered two appetizers, the Figs which weren’t such a hit and the Squash Dumplings that was a major hit. The Lamb Osso Bucco was cooked to perfection, but the side dishes accompanying it left me wantingmore of something different like roasted potatoes. Our friend’s ordered the Fried Chicken, which was juicy and delicious and almost enough for everybody. We were fighting over the Apple Muffin and Molasses Butter, which accompanied the Fried Chicken. We split the Blueberry & Pear Crisp, which sounded better on paper than it tasted on our forks, but their espresso made up for it. Overall, we would visit again for a fun night of dining.
