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 enjoyed a delightful luncheon experience in the outdoor courtyard. With impeccable expertise, we were served a silky vegetable - based risotto and perfectly prepared lobster roll. Cafe Boulud offers a beautiful setting, attentive staff and world class cuisine.

Everything was outstanding. The service was excellent and they even brought a special dessert with candle without being asked. They pay attention to every detail. Impeccable! The food, and they practiced social distancing with the tables. Perfect day in a chaotic world. Many thanks.

We had been to Cafe Boulud for lunch, but never for dinner. Very nice option! I do love the ambiance, and the food and service are very good. This was a weeknight where they were hosting some sort of music event, so it did get VERY noisy before we left.

We enjoyed a perfect night at Cafe Boulud. Lived in the area for several years and tried this restaurant for the first time because of a recent amazing experience on Celebrity Edge. From being greeted by the valet, welcomed by the host, through our entire experience the meal was perfect. I ordered the Black Angus Filet Mignon in the red wine jus. Pomme & Carmel, and warm upside down guanaja chocolate cake . My steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare as I requested. We will definitely be back . The outside terrace was wonderful space to enjoy our dinner. Prior to sitting we stopped by the bar for martinis - the bartender was polite and made a me a perfectly chilled dirty martini. This restaurant will not disappointment

We have a perfectly fine dinner which is why I didn’t give it a better rating. It was just okay and not special, a meal we could have had anywhere. We were looking for the Boulud experience, this was lacking his sparkle.

Perfection all around! The service is very professional yet casual and friendly. The setting outside is gorgeous with lots of little seating areas- the food was delicious and Prix fixe lunch menu not over the top. Thank you for the best time!

We’re taking this one out of our rotation. Minuscule portions, ridiculous prices. A terrible value. Now I know why the place was only one third occupied in high season!

Nice dining room, food was good and wine selection very extensive (albeit expensive, but that’s to be expected). Service was attentive to a fault, too rushed: even though I specifically asked that they not bring the appetizers until we had finished our cocktails, they did anyways. And dishes followed in quick succession, without much of a break at all...annoying...you really feel that they are pushing you out of the door, and at those prices, you’d like to linger a bit!

Delicious food and excelent service.
I had a shitake risotto and outstanding peanut and chocolate desert.
The madelaine which comes with the coffee is baked right before serving. Realy delicious!

The food was not remarkable, the risotto entree was unpalatable in appearance and only fair in taste. We should have sent back. A flavor in the sauce for the swordfish had an unfamiliar seasoning. We hope for the best next time. Quite crowded and too noisy for table conversation.

We were somewhat disappointed in the food and the service. Not as outstanding as it has been. We've been coming there for 15 years on Arthur's birthday, and always found it to be the best place to celebrate.

We dined outside at lunchtime. The setting was beautiful and relaxing. The service was perfect -- professional, knowledgeable, timely and we did not feel rushed. The food was fantastic. I had the salad nicoise, one of my guests, who is a retired French chef, had the mussels and my other guest had the club sandwich. Not a morsel of food was left on a plate.

I never thought I would write this about Chef’s Boulud restaurant in Palm Beach, but the entrees lost their edge. My Mahi was dry and was sent back. After it returned, it was not a wow. MissIng that something! And rabbit papperdelle was not an abundance full of rabbit. Since entrees are in the $40 range, I expect more.
