Café Boulud Palm Beach
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.

28th Anniversary! We always love your restaurant! Quality food and service! One of our favorites! ♥️🥰
Valentines day Brunch. Had a wonderful time
Excellent food and ambiance - recommended, particularly the duck :)
Cafe Boulud has excellent service and the most quality staff. The Valentine's menu was delicious and the they treated us like we were the only guests in the restaurant. I will recommend to friends and family.
Valentine’s Day ♥️♥️♥️
Ambiance is always great but the Cobb salad was not outstanding today. Chicken not tender.
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 $40 range, I expect more.
Great place for brunch with friends or family. Need an umbrella if you sit outside on a sunny day.
Octopus a la plancha was outstanding
We visit Cafe Boulud while on vacation in Palm Beach every February. Not only is it excellent it has the best outdoor ambiance. A must to dine at.
Cafe Boulud is the best restaurant in Palm Beach and Broward county.
Service was very poor. Servant was slow, inattentive. My husband had to stand up and go to the bar himself to place an order for the drinks. We was also charged an extra money for the desert which was supposed to be included in 42$ brunch special.
An ethereal experience that transcends merely fine cuisine as it combines a magical location with impeccable service and an ambiance second to none
Excellent dinner and service
Beautiful setting outside, very Palm Beach, been there many times. Great for lunch or dinner . Fantastic
Beautiful, Romantic and Very Attentive staff! Food was delicious!! Try the white Martinez on the patio!
Second time for brunch. Excellent and staff very professional.
Marina was awesome!!!! The food was delicious
The food was classic French and simply outstanding. The Dover sole was perfectly prepared and presented. Their wine list is truly differentiated and well priced. Of particular note, the service was best in class. Our server had been with the restaurant since 1996 and could not have been more engaging and educational. He is a real gem who made our experience even more memorable.
The service was wonderful, the meal amazing. We had a lovely table by the window in the bar room. It was a little loud but also fun to people watch. We have eaten outside on the patio which
Is quite a bit quieter. This is one of our favorite restaurants in Palm Beach!
We ate outside and the area is sooooo lovely for those who wish to hear what their dining companions have to say! The chicken looked like a piece of art and was delicious. What was EVEN better was the side dish that came with it. I was disappointed at not getting any dark meat, but the breast and sauce were so juicy I was perfectly content. The beet salad was also very good, but could have used a few more pecans. We will certainly go back.
Could not have been nicer!
We both felt that for the price of the dinner we should have had superior service and food. The wine list is crazy expensive for a glass of wine. We waited too long for our drinks and the madelines, a very nice touch, took a very long time to get.
Outstanding food, service & nice ambiance!
Reserved for first seating 5:30 for double birthday and given terrible table next to kitchen, all other tables “were reserved.” What’s with our OWN booking? The other small tables remained empty during most of our dinner.
Soup and risotto were so salty to be inedible: an amateur mistake by the kitchen. Hamachi and venison courses were good. Our waiter unfortunately must have missed the menu meeting as well as being new; very unknowledgeable, kept needing to ask someone.
Not coming back anytime soon.
Mashed potato was average at best — expected much more
Pasta appetizer was unusual combination
Based on normal experience — these 2 dishes were disappointing
Café Boulud is just a magical place where the ambiance and service are only surpassed by the exquisite cuisine!!
Chef is a genius. Great great meal. Very much worth it.
Just a great atmosphere, inside or out, Service excellent, Food, very good, as each dish is special!
No charge Valet parking, is also fast and polite!!
Food and service were top notch. The chef is known, and for good reason. The food and the presentation were spectacular.
We were so disappointed. The service was extremely slow and the food was poor to ordinary. Three of our party had the sole which was acceptable but nothing outstanding. I had a wild boar pasta dish that was poor and unrecognizable. The sauce was bland and overcooked. The service was extremely poor. Dinner was slow to arrive with both courses and we waited over 30 min for the check after having gotten up to find our waiter to ask for it. We’ve been to Boulud’s New York restaurants & expected much more. Won’t go back.
Fabulous food, great service! Excellent wine list. The absolute finest food we enjoyed in Palm Beach during our one-week food fest. Highly recommend the local seafood dishes.
My dinner companions enjoyed every dish just as much as I did.
Bad news? It is very expensive if you can splurge this is the place
Always the best in good quality. Beautiful restaurant with impeccable service.
I have had good food here but not on this visit.
Sunday brunch was very ordinary. The French omelet I had was very pale and the mushroom filling was flavorless.
The Rhum Baba for desert was just as bad. I wondered if it was a yeast based dough, or just stale. Again it lacked the flavor it should have had.
I would have complained at the table but we had a guest.
Impeccable experience like dining in a fine restaurant in South of France. Everything was gloriously prepared plated and served. Server Curtis was likewise outstanding sophisticated warm and with command. The level of food is a rare find. What a gem. Wow!!!!!!
