    We had lunch at Cafe Boulud in August and found food, service and ambiance in the outdoor patio to be perfect. When we returned for a Saturday dinner, we were very disappointed. It started with a too small table for 3 in the corner right next to the entrance to the kitchen. It didn't get better as the food was fair to poor. Wine was good as was the service.

    My husband and I were seated at a lovely table. The staff was very knowledgeable and extremely attentive. The only problem was that the food was disappointing, as it lacked flavor. It wasn't bad, but we've had much better French food in Pennsylvania. We expected more from a restaurant by a renowned French chef.

    Café Boulud provided the perfect setting for my birthday celebration.as we dined on the air conditioned patio. I started with the oh-so-delicious White Cosmo complete with an orchid frozen in the round ice cube. My first course was the escargot - sumptuous. Followed by the mussels entrée, equally good. My husband enjoyed the snowy grouper entrée and we shared the delicious profiteroles for dessert. A truly memorable meal and evening.

    We have happily visited Cafe Boulud in NYC and had a magical dinner. We tried their Palm Beach location for brunch. We had a prix fixe option that included salad , ( one cauliflower soup ) smoked salmon bagels and dessert. ( key lime pie and pana cotta ) . All well prepared with exception of the soup which appeared had too much flour. The price for all of this was very fair. Two tables had issues with the food. The service was below par. Our waiter was personable but a better conversationist than a waiter. We had to ask for water and coffer refills and the waiter was constantly disappearing. The maître d was pleasant but often not evident,perhaps he is shared with the hotel property in which the restaurant is located.

    The interior of Cafe Boulud in Palm Beach looks a lot like the old Cafe Boulud on 76th Street in NYC. However, the outside dining is spectacular and the best ambiance in Palm Beach. I had the lamb loin and the cucumber gazpacho and it was excellent.

    This place never disappoints. Café Boulud is located in a quiet area of Palm Beach. The service is friendly and outstanding; the menu selections are varied and amazing in their gorgeous presentation and flavor. The atmosphere is not too formal or too noisy, even with an active and beautiful bar area. Ask to be seated outdoors in their wonderful Fountain Courtyard area. I am always impressed by the timing and attention to detail when we dine - these guys really are the best. It's very classy without being stuffy, my favorite venue for that special occasion when everything must be perfect.

    Beautiful restaurant! The staff is fabulous and very knowledgeable. The main courses were great, we had bison and pig and it was the best meat we have had In a long time! The desserts were interesting. I had a key lime something that was not all that good but my husband had a raspberry something that was amazing! Great place for a romantic date night!

  • Boulud Sud summer "pop-up" is a hit
    RetiredInBoyntonBeachVIP
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    We went for the summer "pop-up" of Mediterranean-inspired food creations, served on the "enclosed outdoor patio." We ordered the prix-fixe dinners, and even though we were getting a genuine summer-special bargain, the staff treated us royally, no differently than they treated the diners who were ordering a la carte. The food was outstanding. There were four of us around the table, all "foodies," and only two of us (my husband and myself) had been to the restaurant previously. I think they were even more thrilled by the experience than my husband and me, since they had no idea what to expect and we did. In a word: bravo!

    We have eaten at the Café Boulud periodically over the past five years, more than twelve times in all. The ambience is great and the decor exceptional. The service is unfailingly outstanding. However, the quality of the food has been mixed, ranging from excellent down to not-so-good. But, when four of us had dinner there this week, the food was simply bad. No one was pleased with their meal. Not even a superb South African wine could compensate.

    Dined on 7/23/2014
    I enjoyed my visit to Cafe Boulud. The menu and the food were well done and the eclectic choices were all excellent and well prepared, very tantalizing to the taste buds! The paella was unusual in being seasoned with fennel fronds and pieces of fennel. I did miss a bit of the traditional saffron perfumed paella, but he fennel-centric version was delicious as well. All the seafood was perfectly cooked. And the lovely little freebies that came with dessert were really delightful- tiny petite madeleines, warm with their almond scent- Proust would feel right at home! And the service was impeccable. Definitely worth a return visit the next time I am in Palm Beach.

    The atmosphere was romantic, energetic; the food was wonderful & had nothing to envy its big brother in NYC. We had enjoyed Boulud tremendously in NYC & finally had the opportunity to dine here in its Palm Beach counter part. Lush, tropical, secluded, romantic setting & fabulous food to boot. The menus are done like NYC but of course with the local ingredients and it’s a foodie heaven. The wine list is noteworthy & the sommelier was gracious & picked a lovely Pinot Noir that went with my fish dish as well as the pasta dish of the others. The food is so wonderful, creative & beautifully presented. The service was impeccable. If in Palm Beach or special occasion or live in by all means spend the money and enjoy the good life.

    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
