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.

We always enjoy Cafe Boulud but it is hit and miss as far as the dishes we ordered. We will continue recommending it and going to it ourselves, but think the lunch menu needs perhaps less selection but more food.

We were disappointed our reservation was 9pm and we were told we couldn’t experience the tasting with wine pairing

They were out of 2 items ; 1 type of oysters and the the Dover sole

The chicken tasted poached from days prior .

Overall I expected more , I wouldn’t go back

Wonderful food in a lovely setting. The wine list is deep with a few half bottles available. Hubby had the hamburger, properly cooked to temperature, and accompanied by crispy fries. The Cobb salad with buttermilk dressing has all the typical ingredients and a surprise but of fresh corn. Perhaps the best cappuccino I’ve had in this country. Delicious. No charge for valet parking and an easy drive to the Flagler Museum or Worth Avenue.

I ordered a glass of Sancerre at the bar. The waiter bought over a Sauvignon blanc. I told him that’s not what I ordered. He said it was the closest thing they had. He should have told me they didn’t have a sancerre and let me decide from there. When we sat down at our table, our waitress brought over the menu and never told us about the specials that the restaurant had going on. I thought that was in very poor taste. I usually love this restaurant but not this time. I will go back.

Wonderful atmosphere. From arrival and being met by great valets to the hostess to the professional servers, we enjoyed every moment. Food was excellent - recommend coq au vin. So flavorful and tender. Our servers were so personable and knowledgeable about the menu, they made it easy to select our individual meals. We will definitely return soon.

But good was just fair, 3rd time I’ve been there and it wasn’t the charm. Maybe it’s just me. My dinner partner said hers was very good

We are English and our expectations are different in most respects, not better just different, the service, food quality, ambiance were very European in all these respects and on par with a 1 star Michelin restaurant. There is 1 pet objection most Europeans have when dining in the USA and it happened in the correct way, which servers constantly asking if everything is to our liking especially when your mouth is full and cannot reply even if you wanted to!!!, this question should only be asked at the end of the meal, because if there was something wrong the customer would tell you😁

When we first sat down and ordered drinks, I ordered the Bloody Mary bar and my friend ordered a mixed drink from the bar. Although the bar was empty, it took a bit of time but once my friend was brought her drink we then waited for mine. Finally I told the server to cancel my Bloody Mary. She then (defensively) said that only the manager can bring the Bloody Mary cart and he was busy pouring wine at other tables. (Not clear on why this was the process since the bartender was not doing anything.)

So we were nice about it but did say it was disappointing not to have the drinks togther. I suggested that she could have told us when we ordered that there may be a wait for the Bloody Mary and both drinks may not be served at the same time. Then the manager came over and offered to bring the Bloody Mary cart. At that point, I had lost my appetite for the drink so I didn't want it.

At the end of the meal, the server brought us a free batch of fresh baked mini donuts/cakes as a way to compensate for the inconvenience over the drinks. That was nice and appropriate but she waited until the end of the meal to say something about it. Had she said something after the Bloody Mary bit about wanting to bring something for dessert on the house then right away we would have felt like they were being more accommodating.

The food was good but I didn't like the way that whole bit was handled.
