    I was expecting so much more from this restaurant, perhaps my expectations were too high. It was good, but not fantastic. In other words I did not leave thinking anything I ate was the best thing I have eaten. So I was disappointed, but I am glad I went. The atmosphere is fantastic especially if you sit outside. I am not knocking the restaurant, just saying that in my opinion it was less than expected.

    My wife an I went here for her 33rd birthday. Everything was very nice, however I just felt like we should be getting more of a WOW factor for the money we were paying. We never got it. None of the food was "bursting" with flavor, don't get me wrong, it was not awful, just no WOW. Our meal was $360 including tip for the 2 of us. I expected better. We will probably not be back again.

    Cafe Boulud is the most wonderful restaurant - - exceptionally good food and an award winning sommelier (Marya Kovacheva). We have never had a disappointing meal there. Last night we enjoyed a beautiful evening outside on the terrace - everything couldn't have been more perfect. Many thanks to Marciel, Marya and everyone at Cafe Boulud! PS: Don't miss the monthly wine dinners - - an exceptional value and a most enjoyable evening.

    We have been going to Boulud since it opened We took another couple and experienced the worst service we have ever had at any good restaurant. One of our guests ordered a Scotch. It took so long that she asked if perhaps they had gone out to the liquor store to purchase a bottle. We were so very disappointed. A real disappointment. The Restaurant was empty so there were no possible excuses. Shall have to think twice about returning.

    Daniel Boulud isn't often here in person, but his Palm Beach Chef does him proud. The restaurant is charming inside (wonderful colorful art) and outside (lush courtyard); the menu ingredients are superlative and wonderfully prepared; the service is friendly without being intrusive. I love this place.

    We enjoyed a great anniversary dinner at Cafe Boulud. From start to finish it was relaxed elegance -- wonderful good and service, lovely dining atmostphere. Foodie wife enjoyed multiple apps (instead of a full dinner), including a shrimp risotto, lobster and a wonderful beet and burrata salad. I went the more traditional route -- foie gras appetizer which was marvelous, and a Dover Sole prepared tableside that was perfectly prepared. Try the chocolate souffle for dessert. Strangely enough, the two couples at the next table were whining noisily about their service which, I think, one can chalk up to the difference between eating and dining. We had none of that...all perfect...and it didn't detract one bit from a terrific experience.

    The food wasn't as good as lady months - it was then amazing, every mouthful of every course as was the martini. Just wasn't as good this time- fish was over cooked and dry, martini too acidic but overall still good and staff excellent, friendly and attentive.

    The menu was somewhat confusing. The food was fair, not bad. The plates seemed to be right off of a runway in Milan, but lack real flavor and substance. Service was poor and snobby (not sure why). We ask for bread 3 times in a 15 minute period and did not receive it until well after our orders were placed. The ambiance was beautiful. However, all in all, we were truly disappointed.

    There are new wonderful additions to the Fall menu, whig I had on the first night of the new menu. The items are influenced by french colonial "indochine" dishes. I am reminded of one of my old my favorite restaurants in Cambridge, which was "The elephant walk" which had a dual menu for french classics and Cambodian dishes as well. The new dished are delight fro those trying to eat healthy as they include steamed dishes with incredibly flavorful broth-bases sauces.

I want to give them five stars all the way, all the staff was very professional, giving a lot of attention to the customer. The waiter and/or sommelier, Imre, was impressive. Every meal that we tried were all amazing. Thank you for making this stay special! We'll be back!

    Dined on 9/28/2014
    This is, in my opinion, the only truly classy place in Palm Beach! The food is by far the best, and the menu changes constantly. Food presentation is art here. Friendly and quiet it's one of the few places where you can have an actual conversation with friends, or feel romantic, if alone with your partner. The service is impeccable, though occasionally you hear the odd rude person asking for a discount or complaining about something out loud, and the wait staff are calm and always obliging. Thank you!

    Cafe Boulud's branch in Palm Beach merits the buzz. Beautifully presented food, imaginatively prepared and delicious, attentive yet discrete service, and a marvelous wine list (with plenty of excellent choices, "sixty below sixty") make for a memorable evening. As might be expected, the fish entrees were extraordinary; so was the dessert. Well worth a visit.
