About Café Boulud Palm Beach

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.

Good lunch at Cafe Boulud. The prix menu was a good option. The food was delicious and served by an amazing French staff from the waiter to the sommelier.

I was a little disappointed in the gazpacho, but everything else was delicious. and the outdoor setting around a fountain is lovely, great for a special occasion. Very pricey, but the brunch is surprisingly a good value.

It’s a great restaurant, but you fully pay for it. One criticism is the tiny pours when you order wine by the glass. Though prices are not tiny. This mars the evening.

I had a very enjoyable lunch on the terrace. The food from the prix fix was delicious. My waitress Marina was attentive and the French gentlemen advised us on wine was charming and helpful. A great spot for lunch. I will definitely go back for brunch to listen to their pianist!

Food and service both very good. Dover sole was excellent - worth the lofty price. Well thought out higher-end wines by the glass. Overwhelming all was the perfect fall evening with the very Palm Beach-like courtyard setting. A local restaurant for us but always feels special.

Beautiful room, very good cocktails, wife’s salmon was very good though expensive, burger was good but a bit over cooked for medium, French fries disappointing as was the home made ketchup. The others had the Cobb salad and thought it was good. This was obviously lunch, the burger experience at a place like this should be gastronomical, it wasn’t but still a nice place. Regards. Ned.

We went to dinner on a Saturday night to celebrate a 60th. birthday. I had last been here perhaps 10 years ago. We both found it to be lovely, with excellent food and truly wonderful service. I would highly recommend it for any special occasion (and, if you are rich enough, for all meals). The service was helpful, friendly and not at all stuffy. I had a French onion soup followed by duck and then a soufflé. My date had a crab cake followed by something that I have forgotten! (I am even older than 60.) It was all very nice. Another thing that I found extremely attractive about the restaurant was that the tables were well spaced. I have eaten at several Daniel Boulud restaurants in New York and the rents there do not necessarily allow such a luxury.

The prices are, of course, high, so be prepared. About $100 a person without drinks.

Go ahead and splurge.

What an amazing meal we had! We stayed at the hotel and the restaurant was just an afterthought after a long drive there. It will now be a destination restaurant. The food was incredible. Everything fresh, flavorful, colorful and overall amazing. The service was impeccable. Their white cosmo with a frozen orchid in it was absolutely delightful as were all the drinks we tried.
Yes, it was pricey but well worth it. We will be back.

After a wonderful lunch, we spent one hour at a car wash taking glue off of our Mercedes and all we were told was “sorry, it’s not our fault”

When one valet parks one’s car, one assumes it will be parked in a safe area. I wrote an email to the GM. She didn’t call or email. Anywhere else, the management would care to have the client return by offering to pay for the car wash or inviting you to return another time. Very disappointed. This is not Palm Beach service.

Absolutely our favorite restaurant. It is expensive so we save it for special occasions, but the care and preparation of the inventive cooking, the attentive and knowledgeable service and the attractiveness of the restaurant itself make for great value. Add to that the no corkage fee on Tuesday evenings during the summer and early fall and the fact that you never leave the restaurant hungry make Café Boulaud even more extra special.

We love going to Cafe Boulud when we visit the Palm Beach, FL area. The fixed price lunch is always wonderful, and this time was no exception. Our waitress, Mahrine, helped to make this an even more pleasant experience. The charcuterie appetizer is wonderful, and "moules frite" were the best mussels I have ever tasted. Desserts are beautiful and delicious. Don't miss this place.

When you have such a mediocre wine list you should allow a reasonable corkage fee for special bottles

We have been to this restaurant several times and loved it! In fact, our friends drove an hour to meet us for dinner. We were quite disappointed this time. We had to send back the mushroom veloute because it was as thick as wallpaper paste and not warm. One member of our party had an allergy - the food that arrived was so stripped down, it was very disappointing. The salad became hearts of romaine with a few anchovies, and coq au vin was just Chicken in Sauce - no pasta with it. This was not explained clearly beforehand.

We hope this was just a bad night for the restaurant and not indicative of a bigger problem. I'm sure our friends will not travel an hour for this restaurant in the future.
