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.

Food was less than average... don’t waste your time and money. Service was very good but food is awful
Magnifique magique superbe tout était parfait un cadeau pour ma fête
What a restaurant strives to be in all respects
I think I saw a Kennedy
Great location; food is fine
As always food was excellent. Our server on this particular occasion was a bit perfunctory.
I don’t normally take the time to write a review but we’re coming to the end of the season here in Palm Beach and I’d like to recognize staff of Cafe Boulud for providing the best restaurant experience to be found on the island. Everything is top-notch, and consistently prepared and presented. There are many new options here in Palm Beach and we’ve tried them all - dining outside here is just on a higher level than you can find anywhere else in South Florida.
Great food and setting. Not cheap, but the service is outstanding and the meal never dissapoints
Excellent food, standards with a twist, great cocktails. Staff was friendly and efficient. May look expensive at first glance but the quality, originality, and presentation of the food along with the restaurant it self make it well worthwhile.
It’s one of my favorite places - especially because the landscaping makes one feel very secluded and private and not on top of one another like at other restaurants on the Island.
This place used to be a reflection of Daniel Boulud standards and brand...along ( recent years) , it has become less and less the high quality that we knew from Daniel in NYC or Maison Boulud in Montreal: untrained, not knowledgeable staff, no attention to details, no class...I know this is a cafe but it's still Palm Beach, a discerning clientele-not Miami dorks- and still your name...If it were not for the food ( that needs more seasonal changes...always the same stuff !) and the nice setting in that old world hotel, that place delivers below the level of a standard brasserie in France. Your customers-esp, loyal like us- know better, you need a real manager- preferably French , trained and knowing how to host & socialize- and a more attentive maitre D' too busy making himself looking important (sic) around the room. Good luck, Chef Daniel, a quick trip to Palm Beach will allow you to correct the current bad course -pun intended :)...
Outstanding ambience, food and service. This was our first time out for dinner in a restaurant in over a year due to the pandemic. We were celebrating a birthday. Our waiter, Curtis, made the experience enjoyable. We sat outside in the courtyard.
Excellent Food. Spectacular meal. But it's Palm Beach and you get Palm Beach prices
Dine during sunset to experience the transformation of the garden courtyard into a cozy evening lit by the warm lights reflecting on the umbrellas above the tables.
Superb food, service and setting. Would definitely return
Beautiful setting, great service and very good food. Pricey, but fir special occasion, it is worth it
El servicio fue bastante bueno. La comida muy por debajo de las expectativas. Ofrecen platos muy sencillos, típicos de un bistrot, que deberían ser perfectos. Los tres platos que pedimos estuvieron muy por debajo de un promedio aceptable
My food was too salty
Our favorite neighborhood spot for Sunday lunch. A charming garden setting provides a delightful way to enjoy fine food and attentive service.
Beautiful place, location, ambiance, and good food.
Much better in NYC
Always an outstanding experience from cocktails to food and stellar service!
Great location. Beautiful setting. Very accommodating. Fabulous food.
Over rated, over priced, and under valued. Plenty of other great places in Palm Beach.
The hamachi crudo was the best I’ve ever had! Shared the Dover soul veronique and it was also outstanding. Always one of our favorites.
Fine dining, wonderful atmosphere, diners with class.
Love sitting outside and thoroughly enjoyed the food. This is a great place to be for lunch and dinner.
High end but expectations exceeded. Expensive but top quality cuisine and atmosphere, service etc etc
We enjoyed our great lunch. The food and setting and service was excellent.
Last visit to Cafe Boulud. Sincerely, Daniel has to put a little more effort in the menu. I went twice this season and the first time was ok, but the second I han almost no good options left. They need to redo all the menu and kitchen, it’s a disaster
Dining in Paradise. We were seated by the fountain in the courtyard, enjoyed three different wines by the glass as we progressed through appetizers, mains and dessert, everything impeccable in taste and presentation. Service was top-notch, a perfect balance of attentive but unobtrusive.
Café Boulud is one of the most elegant and beautiful restaurants in all of Palm Beach. Excellent service, wonderful food and atmosphere. I especially love the innovative craft cocktails.
Elegant but not hauteur. Gourmet cuisine and beautiful service.
Really disappointing. I have been to Boulud in NYC and was really looking forward to the experience. Huge let down with the food. Salty, mediocre octopus appetizer and very basic lamb - nothing to recommend except the ambiance and the wine list.
Outstanding meal, again, from the appetizers to the desserts!
High end comfy dining in beautiful patio
The brunch menu selections were very basic and ordinary. Nothing special.
Always our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach bar none!!
Beautiful outside garden. Soufflé dessert one of the best I’ve ever had. In a town of high priced restaurants this seemed even more expensive.
