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.

We were celebrating my husbands birthday and everything from the start to the end was impeccable. Enjoyed the huge martinis so well presented, food was great and we ordered off the pre fix menu you get a lot and good choices.
Its always a wonderful experience everyone is extremely polite and happy to accommodate .Thank you for the special Birthday wishes with the extra dessert .

Had the most amazing dinner here last night! My fiancé and I started the evening off with some martinis prepared table side, very cool and tasty! We shared some apps to start which were all great (foie gras, crab fra Diavlo, and steak tartar prepared tableside!) we enjoyed a lovely bottle of red wine from Bordeaux which was a steal with their 50% off all bottles of wine!! I really enjoyed my pork chop and my fiancé couldn’t stop talking about his trout! We shared the berry mousse to finish off our perfect evening! Our waitress gave us great recommendations and we are already planning when we’ll be back!

We had a wonderful time. My wife and I chose to bring our kids -- ages 5 and 6 -- to their first "fancy" dinner here. The experience was amazing. The service was spot-on. The food -- the tasting menu -- was outstanding. The wine, paired with the tastings, was great, too. Our kids were sufficiently enthralled by the décor, the servers, and the overall experience that they behaved calmly and beyond their years. The food served to them from the kids' selections was also quite good. Overall, we would highly recommend the restaurant for any special occasion. This one was certainly special for us.

I have not been at Boulud since year. I know the NYC locations and the one in Miami. My memories about this dinners are very fond. Thats why I thought I take friends out there. I liked your new decoration, the room looked modern and fresh. But the food was not outstanding the way I had in mind. For 300$ per couple I would hope for more special food. My pasta was very average, a little piece of country pate for 19$ really...
The dessert was either not tasty at all or just a nice try of some crumbles on 2 little pieces of sorbet.
Well I am not planning to come back soon...may be for a drink or a lunch Menu for 49$ that sounds like ok...
I was disappointed, and tried to find a good reason: may be the real chef is on vacation? May be its the 2. Line of crew in summer and the real deal is in the winter season. I do not know....
It did not speak Daniel Boulud at all.
Sorry Katharina Braun

One of the best places to dine in PB. Excellent service & amazing food! Can’t ask for anything better.. We both had the special three course dinner. A great value and thoughtfully prepared. Just make certain to clarify the cuts or fish selections as they may be different than the description. Not bad but may avoid a surprise.

Our waiter, Yon, was delightful. As was the lady who has been there for years as a waitress.....cannot remember her name. Sorry!! The food and wine was only surpassed by the company of my three friends. Also, the charming gentleman from NY whose birthday was 7/22 also who bought us another round of wine!!! A perfect ending to a perfect lunch as always.

This is the fourth time we've eaten at Cafe Boulud and it get's better every time. Whoever is running their kitchen is doing a superb job. The highlights of our most recent meal were i) Lamb Ragu with Gnocchi-like knots, and ii) Wild Mushroom Risotto. The Ragu was light, just barely coating the delectible homemade pasta which melted in your mouth. I love Risotto and this was among the best I've had. It started with a rich homemade chicken stock combined with an assortment of wild mushrooms, and finished with butter and a drizzle of what tasted like truffle oil - no visible cheese or cream anywhere. It was pure and superb.

The only down-side was their exhorbitantly priced wine list.

I have eaten here many times and the food and service are always excellent. This particular evening I enjoyed the roasted carrot salad and as an entree, the lion fish. Both were delicious. The Chablis -- wine by the glass -- is very good too, but as always, expensive.

Everything was outstanding, but, unless you are part of the "rich and famous", it is a little pricey. However, for a special occasion (it was a birthday), it is certainly worth the trip to Palm Beach (we live in Boca Raton) AND the expense. They certainly know how to make one feel special at Café Boulud. Plain food becomes a work of art there. Wish we had a resto that compares to Café Boulud in Boca Raton! What is also wonderful is that it is not pretentious, just wonderful!

Our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach. The setting in the Brazilian Court Hotel is sophisticated and elegant but not stuffy. There is a “chill” feeling about the place.
Excellent bar and bartenders. Creative drink menu, upscale bar menu, premier wine list. It’s a great place to have a cocktail and something off the bar menu if you don’t want dinner. You won’t be disappointed.
It’s not loud. Its a great place to go and be with friends or your special someone. An atmosphere that you can actually hear your friend’s conversation.
Servers are professional and follow your lead and do not rush you to order.
The food is superb. Plated beautifully, always excellent in flavor. We dine here about 4-6 times per year. I would go every week if I lived closer.
The tasting menu with the wine pairing is always good. Usually our choice.

I expect every Boulud restaurant to be extraordinary....from Daniel on Park Avenue and down the line. Cafe Boulud in Palm Beach is as good as ever. The attention to the details is so greatly appreciated, such as service plates presented to those of us not joining in on a particular course. I look forward to my next visit.

I LOVE this restaurant! I took my new girlfriend there to celebrate her birthday. I don’t recall exactly the dishes we had but suffice it to say, each was a home run. The service was first-rate; the wait staff was prompt and very attentive. As a bonus surprise was that the wait staff brought a piece of mango/raspberrry cake with “Happy Birthday” on the plate...wonderful touch. We will be back!

The restaurant is very european (french) with all the class and amenities that accompany. I guess many are used to that but it was very unique and special to us and for sure an occasion we will remember. The food was different, delicious and at times need to be explained. Our server was attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable. Palm Beach itself is like no other place and Boulud's fits in perfectly. Thanks

We had such a special moment! Vincent started us on the right foot with an incredible martini that he prepared at our table. We could not expect a better start. Our waitress Marina was very friendly and recommended us the tajine and foie gras which were out of this world. Compliments to the chef! The Hungarian sommelier has selected a good Rhône valley wine for us. We ended with the chocolate cake and the nougat which were both exquisite. We will be back. We had a great time!
