Palm Beach dining at its best. While other Palm Beach restaurants copy Boulud’s prices, none approach the overall experience. From
classic French to creative dishes, food is excellent. Wine is high end with many good Burgundies and Bordeaux. Have to say that I gladly paid the price— felt that I finally got what I paid for in Palm Beach!

I'm a big fan of Daniel Boulud. For my birthday I was treated to eat at Daniels in the city (Amazing) and I literally live at Boulud Sud. So when I went to Palm Beach over the weekend I was really excited about dining here, especially since it was a birthday gift from my friends. Its tucked in the Brazilian Court Palm Beach hotel and has great decor. Hostess was pleasant upon entering - my issue was with the food and service. The waiter cared more about upcharging and adding items to our tab that he didn't even notice I wasn't touching my roasted red pepper risotto. I only had one bite and I couldn't eat anymore, to say it was just bland is being complimentary. I was very disappointed - so disappointed I'm going to write a letter to the restaurant as well. My friends had the agnolotti and that wasn't great either. I'm not sure if it was because we were among one of the last tables to serve so the kitchen just rushed our meal? But this restaurant is an embarrassment to Daniel Boulud. I was very offended by that risotto. The only pro about my meal - was the dirty martini. It was one of the best I've ever had.

I went for the venison specifically, which they did not have. I couldn’t cancel because I would be charged $50 per person as we had to book with a credit card for New Year’s Eve. I ordered the tuna crisp appetizer, it was tiny cubes of tuna and melon, about 3 or 4 of the 20 pieces were tuna. Very disappointing. My duck and my husbands new girl strip we’re fine. The desserts were horrendous, mine was the citrus one and I forget the name of my husbands. Lacked flavor. The one good thing was my cocktail- la passion. Over all incredibly overpriced for mediocrity.

We’ve been dining here and all the Boulud restaurants for many years. While this one has tumbled from what it once was, they have made a valiant effort to return to its five star food, service and ambiance. We loved the redo of the dining room and the new bar area. The outdoor patio and garden are one of the nicer spaces in PB. The food was much better and overall very good compared to the last few times. I had almost written this restaurant off so we were glad to see, attention has been paid to bringing it back to its hay day. Husband splurged and ordered the Dover sole ($71). It was always a favorite treat in the early days. Unfortunately, while it was tasty, it just didn’t live up to the memory so won’t try that again. But the truffles offered as an upcharge to several dishes was delicious. I had it over risotto so went with a simple but delicious chicken entree. Service was good. A little overwhelming and fast initially but we asked they slow down and staff readily and courteous ly complied. We will be back. Definitely worth a night out in PB.

Our visit must have been an off day. The service was excellent and the ambiance is so wonderful. The food was so-so. Not terrible, but not great. Even if I am ordering a turkey club sandwich, I do expect it to be something different. This was the first time coming for lunch...and we have only come for dinners in the past. What can I say. Will this be the last time I come here...not at all. It's still one of my favorite places to go in PB.

We dined on Christmas Eve. Unfortunately we were not informed beforehand that it was a price fixe menu for $135 per person. So we were unpleasantly surprised when we arrived at the restaurant.
The service was great. The food overall was good, although one dessert, a citrus mousse, was grainy and bitter, and my husband’s duck was undercooked.
I thought the meals were overpriced but perhaps that is the going rate in Palm Beach. Might go back on a day without a prix fixe menu.

I have had lunch many times with 2 other friends. We all always order the Lobster Roll. It is wonderful .

Last Friday we ordered again. It was more roll and a lot less lobster?

Wondering why!
