Located at the Brazilian Court Hotel, one of Palm Beach’s most coveted dining destinations, Café Boulud has undergone a complete renovation! Experience the all new look and menu this season.

The restaurant’s new design is lighter and elegant, achieved with unique touches like a ceiling made from sea shells and Pecky Cyprus, improved lighting, and warm wood flooring surrounding the glowing bar.

The newly expanded bar is dramatically backlit and casts a resplendent glow through the room. It’s a must for cocktails before dinner, craft beers on tap, or to enjoy the crowd and scenery; food is served at the bar throughout the day.
The renovated terrace and private dining rooms are a destination for entertaining in style, with a menu that balances signature Boulud dishes and French favorites inspired by his restaurants around the world.

During the high season, jackets are preferred. Shorts and beachwear are not permitted.

I don’t usually write reviews- but had to for this one! We had the best dinner for our first night in Palm Beach. We traveled from NYC and couldn’t wait to be here. The food and service at Cafe Boulud was impecable. My birthday celebration with my husband was very special. The service was outstanding. Everything from cocktails to dessert was top notch and filled with flavor.

The food and our meal were delicious, seasonal well seasoned and simply tasty. The French waitress and sommelier were attentive and helpful. You cannot find this anywhere else on the island.

We had such a special moment! Vincent started us on the right foot with an incredible martini that he prepared at our table. We could not expect a better start. Our waitress Marina was very friendly and recommended us the tajine and foie gras which were out of this world. Compliments to the chef! The Hungarian sommelier has selected a good Rhône valley wine for us. We ended with the chocolate cake and the nougat which were both exquisite. We will be back. We had a great time!

Great restaurant. The dover sole was excellent, I gave it just 4 stars in food because the beef carpaccio a had was not fresh and the meat was a little dry. My wife had the octopus which was really good and the duck (really good but not excellent). Overall was a great experience, service was really good at the level of some Michelin star restaurants I have been in before.
Would come back in the future

Took the Brightline train up from Miami during the inaugural weekend, and chose Cafe Boulud as the Sunday Brunch destination. Fantastic experience. Wife had the lobster roll entree and I had the three course brunch buffet. Parfait with fruit starter had the very best Greek yogurt I have ever eaten. Followed up with mushroom and cheese omelet. Finished off with the key lime pie with sherbet. All were top notch. Restaurant itself had tons of natural light. Drinks were of course nicely done as well. After, took a walk a few blocks to Worth Avenue to stroll a bit before hopping the train back to Miami. Was a great Sunday. Definitely would recommend and will visit again.

While the food was amazing as always, the service for Saturday brunch off-season was abominable. My mother asked for a cup of coffee that took 20 minutes to materialize. I asked for the check three times before it was presented to me. People who sat down after us were plated before us. One waiter didn't even know the name of the restaurant he was working for. He pronounced it, "Cafe BULL-udd". The food might bring us back, but the service will make us think twice...

Great wine list, although the mark-up seemed extreme on some of the better bottles. Food was superb. We ate outdoors and the atmosphere was beautiful. The crowd is the old money Palm Beach elite, so men wear your bright blue blazer, your pink pants, and leave your socks at home. This is the curse of Daniel Boloud's restaurants. The food so perfect, and so expensive, it knocks out half the crowd who might make it a little more fun to be there.

Always one of our favorite restaurants in Palm Beach. Love dinning in and out, both are wonderful. Vincent is always fantastic. He made an excellent choice of wines from Bordeaux as I am going there in a few weeks. He was also helpful with suggesting restaurants and nice things to do in the Bordeaux area.
Curtis always has a smile and is an excellent waiter !
Sorry the season is over but, look forward to next fall
