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.

This is difficult. A brunch reservation was made to take my wife out for her birthday, but the luck of the draw had it to where the power went out at the very time of our reservation. Therefore, we had an extremely limited menu to order from that was mainly cold sandwiches and salad. Our server told us that the power was being worked on and hopefully will be along shortly. Ever the optimists, my wife and I ordered a glass of wine, a cocktail, and a cheeseboard, thinking the power would come on by the time we finished our orders.

It didn't. In fact, when a different server came by to check on us (by proxy of checking on her table), she informed us that the power wouldn't be restored until 2:00pm.

So, we cut our losses and asked for the tab. They took a print of my card and gave us a carbon copy of a handwritten receipt, stating that with a provided email they would mail us the receipt after power was restored. Though my email was given, I haven't received that receipt (but was charged).

So this was a very off day all around. We understand things happen and we're willing to give Cafe Boulud another chance, but I cannot objectively say that our time was thoroughly enjoyed this time around.

Great food and service, but ambiance has declined in the years we have been eating there. Modern is nice but the bar in the dining room detracts and makes an elegant dining experience less elegant.

Believe a foodie...

Amusee Bouche of Watermelon with a pinch of sea salt. My southern husband would approve!

The sommelier suggested an excellent St. Emilion. The bread was a tiny disappointment (chewy vs a crisp exterior). Oysters were a tad brinier than described, but good none-the-less. Vichyssoise had a tad too much turnip in it and not enough cream imho.

The Dover sole was PERFECTLY prepared and PERFECTLY deboned and served table side and paired well with the sautéed super greens spinach and risotto. My friend's squash risotto was also well done.

The deconstructed chocolate and hazelnut dessert with hazelnut ice cream was FABULOUS. My friends Guanajua upside down (very warm chocolate lava cake was equally good.

Ion, our waiter, suggested that we finish with a decaf cappuccino. Frothy perfection!

We will be back! Perhaps for the Truffle event in December.

15 years ago we were married in West Palm, we stayed at the Brazilian Court and Dined at Cafe Boulud. We wanted to take a walk down memory lane and we were not disappointed. We were seated at the same table on the Terrace and had the privilege of being served by Ioan/John (sp). He carefully walked us through the menu and created a beautiful dining experience. The Sommelier guided us to the perfect wine paring and prepared artisan cocktails at our table. We dined on Oysters, Shrimp, shared the Lamb of the evening and filet mignon. We could not resist the decadent deserts, and a little something special compliments Cafe Boulud. We cannot imagine a more perfect way to celebrate our 15 Year Anniversary. Thank you

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.
