  • "Excellent food and service. My favorite Palm Beach restaurant. I enjoy the summer menu and quiet ambience."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The food was excellent. Two of the items ordered were not available, but after a discussion w/ the mgr. they were very apologetic and went out of their way to make up for the disappointment. The terrace was lovely. Would definitely go back."

  • "Started with a drink at the bar and had a delightful lunch in every way. The staff was passionate about taking care of our needs and the food was perfect. Great wine list and prices for the quality and service we received were great. If I lived in Palm Beach I would be a regular and I will return when we are there next."

  • "Great experience from Daniel Marquez, Brand Ambassador for Wines of Brazil who lectured on the 6 main wine regions.I enjoyed the Don Guerino, Merlot from the Reserve Serra Gaucha 2011 where 85% of Brazilian Wine is produced. The sparkling wines, Casa Valduga 130 and Aurora, Carnaval were superlative. These sparkling wines have been produced for over 100 years in Brazil .Chef Rick Mace presented an exquisite cuisine of Heritage Pork Croquette and Trio of Lamb and Eric Snow's Mango Mousse was a goal winner !! Everyone also was able to pick a winner for the FIFA World Cup to win two bottles of wine. Congratulations for a fine dinning experience Café Boulud"

  • "We invited my parents and we all loved the hotel where this restaurant is located. We had drinks in the bar first, the service in both places were outstanding. We all liked the food however For example the menu had a Cioppino which was very good but why not have a Bouillabaisse instead or more French traditional cuisine. I would have liked this better. But overall the food, service, ambiance was outstanding and we will definitely come back"

  • "the service was great. thank you for the madelines at the end of the meal with Congratulations in scroll. and the request for a more private table was met with the best table in the room. many thanks. the food was a bit disappointing... the oysters on the half shell were opened in a messy fashion leaving chunks of the shell in the oyster... each oyster had bits of debris in it. the quality of oyster was fine. coffee excellent! did you change the formula, if so keep it that way."

  • "It's truly the best in south Florida. Excellent food, wines, ambiance and service."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "One of our favorites had a bad night! Two of us ordered flounder that not only didn't taste like flounder but it didn't taste good. We both tried to get our server's attention but were unable to. When we finally did, it was too late to order anything else as the guys were done. We weren't offered a credit but were given one dessert. Service seemed off overall that night and the crab cake appetizers weren't very good either. Hard to say this as this has been our favorite restaurant."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The service at Café Bouloud was amazing. I was very impressed by the attentiveness of the staff. The food was excellent as well. Overall I would recommend Café Bouloud for a romantic evening or special occasion."

  • "the lunch plan Cafe Boulud offers is one of the best around. If you don't want the "prix fixe" you have great choices to enjoy a great lunch in this wonderful atmosphere."

  • "We celebrate my mother birthday, nice ambient, very kind, the fix price menu, is fair enough, but really well cooked and served."

  • "Lunch special: delicious and a real value.Hamburger worthy of "best in Palm Beach""
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "What follows is a biased review, reflection our own expectations - or should I say, personal preferences. Totally enjoyed the food, ambiance left us cold - literally. Octopus a la plancha, house-cured king salmon, truite almondine were absolutely delicious and memorable (and warm!) - albeit small portions. Service was superb and professional by most standards, we just prefer a warmer (less clinical) interaction with the service personnel and a more lively atmosphere. Some genuine friendliness would be nice - never felt welcome or at home. While it was a pleasant 75-degree Palm Beach evening, the outdoor covered seating area had the AC blowing so cold..."and could not be turned off", chasing numerous parties indoors - very unpleasant."

  • "My husband and I enjoyed lunch here on a Saturday. We had planned to dine in the evening, but after looking at the dinner menu, we decided to do lunch instead. Little on the dinner menu appealed to us. We love French food, but the offerings seemed more Middle-Eastern than French to us. The lunch was delicious. The service was OK. Everyone seemed to be a bit disorganized, even though only about 5 of the patio tables were occupied. Our impression is that better management is needed. My husband had the Cuban sandwich which is made with gruyere cheese. It was fabulous. I had the peekytoe crab salad. It was a work of art, and very delicious. For dessert we split the vanilla pannacotta with coconut sorbet and tropical fruit--yummy!"

  • "Delicious food in a beautiful and intimate setting with impeccable service"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Food is good here but you expect a degree of exquisiteness from a bastion of haute cuisine. This might disappoint you. The service is also good as the waiters are well trained. However, it somehow lacks friendliness. Overall, a fun experience. I'll go back!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "One of the best French restaurants in South Florida. Bar, restaurant and outdoor dinning made this place a true gem. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Wonderful in every way!! Service is excellent & the food is divine!!!"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "After seeing many positive reviews, I booked a reservation. I have to start out by saying that the staff is fabulous!! They were very helpful with suggestions from the menu. I expected it to a bit larger of a place but then again I did not get to really see much of the property because there was a wedding in the garden area. The food was fantastic! The only reason I did not give this place 5 stars is because of the price for the portion size. I am ok with the amount of food with each dish but I feel they could charge a little less, or include the side dishes at no charge. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Most Palm Beach restaurants are average at best. Cafe Boulud lives up to its reputation as one of the most impressive...innovative but not fussy food,good service, and a casual yet elegant atmosphere. Not Chef Boulud's best but certainly one of the best our area has to offer."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "They do an interesting thing with their menu and break it up by traditional, seasonal, vegetarian, etc. we started off with a traditional appetizer, the escargot which were fantastic. They are all ready out of the shell which made them so much easier to eat. Even if you think you won't like scales you should try these. I ordered the fish and my fiancé ordered the bison. He really liked his dish but my fish was a little overcooked and dry. The wine list is extensive but the sommelier helped and after telling her what we liked and a price point, she picked a fabulous wine for us. Note that there are not a lot of option under $100.00. We saved the best for last and split the soufflé which melted in our mouths. Do not pass up this dessert."

  • "I had the grilled octapus appetizer size for lunch. The octapus was tough or overcooked although I did not send it back. The plate was gorgeous but I was disappointed in the flavoring. The nicoise salad looked less than what I expected it to look like. The other party had a salad with grilled shrimp added. All the dishes were not outstanding which at this restaurant they should be."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "The only thing it had was the name Boulud...obviously he hasn't checked up on it in awhile. Horrible, horrible service. Took half our dinner order then left distracted. Finally tracked him down and placed the other half. A fish dish with sauce came without sauce, they totally forgot my dinner and had to re-order. Absolutely no presentation. Breakfast was bland and we didn't go back, lunch was just as bad. Too bad as we really expected more...hoping that each meal was just off...but the entire restaurant just doesn't have it. Never going back there-"

  • "Extraodinaire. Fantastique. Incroyable. The finest of French dining in a beautiful tropical hideaway in fabulous Palm Beach. For lunch, we enjoyed a perfect 3 course prix fixe meal served with finesse in a blissully romantic setting. Our compliments to Cafe Boulud."

  • "Our romantic birthday dinner with our closest of friends was all we wished for. A comfortable quiet table, well placed from other diners, delicious wine expertly suggested by the sommelier and food beyond description in its complexity of flavors that melded into a delight for the taste buds. Portions are perfect- no gigantic mounds of food or tiny mortals leaving you hungry. Just right enough but not too much. My octopus appetizer was tender and yummy a rarity here in the US where most often it is tough and chewy. Our fish selections expertly prepared were garnished with a delicate sauce - what was that intriguing flavor? Two of our party choose the attractively priced priz fixed option with an extra course - dessert of course. "

  • "We have always enjoyed Cafe Boulud. THe food is always excellent, and the service is attentive. The dining room is lovely and very serene. THe outdoor space is pretty, although they have hung plastic walls on the patio which are less than attractive. That interferes with the beauty of the outdoor space. We chose not to sit outside for that reason. They always end each meal with a small basket of the French pastries, madeleines, hot out of the oven. Their chickpea fries are always delicious. Their 3 course $35 meals are a bargain. If you order a la carte it gets quite expensive, but it is the perfect splurge for an occasion! We celebrated my husband's birthday there and particularly loved the mussels and the trout dish. "
