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.

The ambience in the garden was absolutely amazing. However, a very stuffy and rude vibe starting with the hostess. First, they told us no tables were available outside when in fact they had numerous free tables. After insisting I asked for a table outside when I confirmed my reservation they called me a liar (not to my face, but my husband heard them discussing that they don’t confirm a reservation-I have a voice mail to prove it) we got a table outside. My duck was cooked perfectly! However, my husbands steak was so dry and not very tasty. We sent it back and got another, but this one just wasn’t great. Very disappointing given how expensive it was and the reputation of this restaurant. Maybe an off day not sure, but disappointing for a $200+ dinner. Not sure we would return.

we were so disappointed. we have been to cafe boulud at least once a year since coming and buying our condo in 2008. this time, we noticed the following:
- more people dining, so possibly less personal attention to each diner by the chef
-used to have a wonderful, unique bread tray, just mediocre bread
-much more expensive than before
-small quantities
-very small complex plates. for example the roasted option salad that tasted burnt and the complex crab cake that was just blah
-the lemon deserts small in quantity for 2 people

will not come again

Outstanding from beginning to end!: the food, the service & ambiance made this a memorable experience! For appetizers we had the charcuterie and the chilled broccoli soup with creme fraiche & caviar; entrees of mushroom risotto & the pork chop saltimbocca with gnocchi & a fabulous charred broccoli side dish. The piece de resistance were the desserts: berry tart & warm mini madeleines !! We highly recommend this lovely restaurant & if possible dine outside, too!

I have visited this restaurant multiple times and am a Florida local. I was extremely disappointed this Valentine’s Day when the ball was dropped on multiple levels. We were not even given the “complementary” chef app nor desert. The service was sub par on multiple levels with the waitress apologizing for the multiple mishaps. When a couple agrees to pay $400 for dinner, there needs to be a level of service received. My wife and I were extremely disappointed and had the worst Valentine’s Day in 19 years.

Cafe Boulud has been a tradition for us when we are in Palm Beach to celebrate Arthur's birthday. We always have a wonderful lunch and service and ambience are outstanding.

We had a lovely experience. Portions are generous so ordered two appetizers and that was plenty. The price is high, but we felt it was reasonable for what we got.

Food was good except for salmon which was undercooked. Service was awful. Waitress was pretentious and acted like serving us was above her. I asked to swap a side in an entree and she said it would be a small upcharge. Instead, she charged us full price for the swapped I removed a side, got a different one, and got $0 credit for the one I removed. So much for a small upcharge!!!

A quintessential lovely Palm Beach restaurant. Service and ambience both superb; the food, however, falls smack into the pretentious category in that presentation completely disguises the mediocrity of the dishes. Black truffles shaved tableside over tagliatelle looked promising but had no taste of truffle, only the richness of butter. (And the provenanceof those truffles?)
My swordfish may have been of excellent quality, but I couldn't tell because of the over-powering citrusy sauce it came clothed in.
To be excellent, a restaurant must have the balance of price and quality; Cafe Boulud misses.

We were greatly disappointed by this restaurant. While it is a lovely place, the food is nothing exceptional. My husband and I both had the onion soup, which was good, but I have had better. The cheese was not plentiful and what there was was somewhat burnt. Three of us had steak for our main, which was probably a mistake. It was decent, but I've had better at the country club where we live in Florida. Also, the meat was cold and the server did not ask us in a timely manner about our food. The best part of the meal were our side dishes, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts, which were all very good. The desserts which we had, a Chocolate & Dulcey Mousse and a Saint-Germain Souffle, were good, but far from memorable. We wanted this to be a special evening, which unfortunately it definitely was not.
