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.

Brunch with my dear college friends was a delightful experience. Starting with the Curried Pea Soup which was so flavorful and delicate followed by the delicious short rib hash and eggs.... wow just wow. And then there were the profiteroles. Happy day! The service was excellent, the food was the star and the service was the complement
Great dining.

What a spectacular meal it was. The dining room is beautiful and the service is wonderful. My husband had the butternut squash soup and a homemade pasta with lamb bolognese. I had the scallops and for dessert I had the most amazing coconut soufflé. I already can’t wait to go back.

For years this has been our go-to restaurant for special dinners, and it is always superb. It's pricey, but you are treated to the finest food, fabulous wine choices and the most gracious service - so it's well worth it! The vibe is lush, tropical and classy, but welcoming and not stuffy. We all loved everything, from the classic start (beautifully presented caviar) to innovative, artful mains (pork chops, wild boar and venison). 5 stars!

Great ambiance but too many people involved with introducing the food and drinks that interrupts the relaxing and intimate atmosphere someone would expect from the place like that
Amount of people involved in serving the food justifies the price as dishes themselves were not reflecting the price
Dover sole was acceptable but the duck came with the side dish of salad that was very very salty to the point that was not be able to consumed and it wasn’t
Would recommend the dessert- pouched pear was delicious-really
Thank you

Food and atmosphere were excellent. Service was not that of a 5 start spot, but still good. Little pricey, $43 for a pasta dish and $45 for a single duck breast is a bit excessive but at least the food was very good. Upiddy palm beach crowd with rude people bringing in dressed up toy dogs to show off really is off putting.

We went here for my sisters birthday. I called in advance and made the restaurant aware that it was a special occasion. I requested a cake but they assured me that my sister would be given a complimentary dessert of her choice. I made the waiter aware that it was her birthday and even gave her a card in front of him. She did not receive a complimentary dessert nor a birthday wish from any of the staff. A woman at an adjoining table received a desert and audible good wishes. This restaurant was chosen because my sister goes there for her anniversary regularly and this was a disappointing experience.

I thought the food was stunning. The presentation of the food was beautiful. The items we ordered were excellent. And, the service was at a very high level. It is expensive, but well worth it given the quality of the food and the excellence of the service. My duck entree was superb, as was my octopus appetizer. I look forward to returning to this restaurant when I am next in Palm Beach.

My husband is a big fan on Daniel Boulud, and has been wanting to check out his place. I’d say for lunch it was good. Worth checking out to say we have done it. We had the butter lettuce salad to start and for entree I had the goat cheese ravioli and my husband had the brisket sandwich. We opted out of desert as none of them sounded appealing to us. We probably would not do lunch again. We will make it back thought to try the dinner menu.

As always, the food and ambience were outstanding. What was not up to Boulud standards was the service. For example, my husband's first course was incorrect, despite his having clearly ordered a different selection. This rookie mistake should not happen at a fine dining establishment.

Ordered sea bass- wasn't fresh - skin on and very thin piece ( instead of the thick ultra white juicy meat I am used to) - I never had sea bass that looked like that before.
Considering the price, not worth it!

We highly advise anyone that is in Palm Beach to enjoy what jewels of talent for your taste buds and presence the chef has. The entire service staff was amazing also. We had the duck and the redfish! Perfection!

Our experience was great. We made a special request since it was a special occasion. Initially the staff was hesitant to accomadate our wishes. Eventually Vincent, who was attentive and bright, understood our request and was able to compromise. He even surprised my wife with an impropmtu anniversary platter. It was surprising and delightful and we always look forward to out annual dining experience with Cafe Bouluds staff, ambience and of course food. Furthermore, every bit of food was amazing. I had the best flat iron steak in my life, which also helped make the moment special. The steak was rendered perfectly and had an almost carmel-like texture. Overall, it was exquisite and personable. Thanks again to Vincent and our staff, cheers!
