Special Occasion Restaurant near Boca Raton?

We will be in Boca next month visiting family. It happens to be the week of a milestone birthday for me and I would love to go out to celebrate with my husband while we have babysitters in town. Cost doesn't matter but food and experience must be reliably top notch. No steakhouses... for reference we live in San Francisco. Have had many decent (and many mediocre) meals in Boca and Delray Beach over the years but nothing that has ever blown me away. We will be staying at the Boca Resort.

Cape Cod- who to use for small father's day Clambake in E. Dennis, MA?

We are looking to have a small clambake at our rental house for 6 people. It will be our first day on the cape so we want minimal hassle, either someone drops it off completly coooked, or comes and cooks it for us. Our agent suggested Swan River Seafoods, but a glance at some of the online reviews for their restaurant has left me pretty skeptical.
Does anyone have any feedback on Swan's dropoff clambake or any other suggestions? I am happy to pay the price for a solid clambake, I just don't want the Dad's to be eating rubbey lobster and watery chowder.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Seeking GOOD food in Boca Raton/Delray Beach area, ok for toddlers

Hoping to get some help from this wonderful board. We are visiting family who live on the edge of delray, near Boca and would love some casual dining recommendations for lunches and dinners (esp italian or nicer contiental) Price does not matter but food does. Atmosphere cant be too fancy or romantic b/ c we have a 2 yr old w/ us. For background, we live in San Francisco and never eat in chain restaurants (at any price point) by choice. Our kid is still working on table manners but dines out a lot and eats real food, usually off the main menu, not from a junk food menu masquerading as a kids menu. The folks we are visiting are not foodies but enjoy a good meal, nothing too 'out there' in terms of menu items.
Thanks in advance for your help. I coulnt find many current postings in the archives that fit the bill, and the turnover rate for restaurants in this area is high enough that spots we've gone to in the past arent around anymore.
