Café Boulud Palm Beach
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 both felt that for the price of the dinner we should have had superior service and food. The wine list is crazy expensive for a glass of wine. We waited too long for our drinks and the madelines, a very nice touch, took a very long time to get.
Outstanding food, service & nice ambiance!
Mashed potato was average at best — expected much more
Pasta appetizer was unusual combination
Based on normal experience — these 2 dishes were disappointing
Café Boulud is just a magical place where the ambiance and service are only surpassed by the exquisite cuisine!!
Chef is a genius. Great great meal. Very much worth it.
Just a great atmosphere, inside or out, Service excellent, Food, very good, as each dish is special!
No charge Valet parking, is also fast and polite!!
Food and service were top notch. The chef is known, and for good reason. The food and the presentation were spectacular.
We were so disappointed. The service was extremely slow and the food was poor to ordinary. Three of our party had the sole which was acceptable but nothing outstanding. I had a wild boar pasta dish that was poor and unrecognizable. The sauce was bland and overcooked. The service was extremely poor. Dinner was slow to arrive with both courses and we waited over 30 min for the check after having gotten up to find our waiter to ask for it. We’ve been to Boulud’s New York restaurants & expected much more. Won’t go back.
Fabulous food, great service! Excellent wine list. The absolute finest food we enjoyed in Palm Beach during our one-week food fest. Highly recommend the local seafood dishes.
My dinner companions enjoyed every dish just as much as I did.
Bad news? It is very expensive if you can splurge this is the place
Always the best in good quality. Beautiful restaurant with impeccable service.
I have had good food here but not on this visit.
Sunday brunch was very ordinary. The French omelet I had was very pale and the mushroom filling was flavorless.
The Rhum Baba for desert was just as bad. I wondered if it was a yeast based dough, or just stale. Again it lacked the flavor it should have had.
I would have complained at the table but we had a guest.
Impeccable experience like dining in a fine restaurant in South of France. Everything was gloriously prepared plated and served. Server Curtis was likewise outstanding sophisticated warm and with command. The level of food is a rare find. What a gem. Wow!!!!!!
Seated in noisy barroom. Past experience in dining room has always been well worth it and quieter. Food is always great.
A sparkling gem that never disappoints
The service was excellent and the quality of the food extraordinary BUT so were the prices. $78.00 for two stone crab claws!! The food was fresh and fabulous probably the best shrimp cocktail I have ever had and its hard to distinguish one from another but these shrimp were remarkable. The service was spot on anticipating every move. It was a special occasion, and we have been before, I do recommend it but just be aware its PB and very pricey.
Cafe boulud was so so lovely for lunch. We sat in the garden and the food choices were terrific. I would definitely go back again.
Really overpriced!!!! $20 for a mediocre glass of chablis??
Excellent food except that the Dover sole had a strong taste which we usually do not find in that fish.
Delightful outdoor table excellent food and service
Food excellent as always. Service another issue entirely. If you are a known dinner the service is quit good, if you are an unfortunate unknown then do not even expect wine service with your dinner or a decent table even when many were available . Too bad we are uncomfortable there it really is a wonderful restaurant, front of house people need to make note.
Went to Cafe Boulud for the Holidays and it was outstanding. You feel welcome and seat in the most beautiful courtyard. The food is fresh and well seasoned. Our waiters Yvon and Marina made us feel special and recommended us the best dishes ever.
My son’s birthday.
Everything exceeded expectations!
The food and service were excellent. The restaurant is beautiful, but wish it weren't so loud.
On the pricy side but, nevertheless, never fails to deliver and excellent dining experience. Will definitely remain on our "go to" list whenever we're down here!
One of the most memorable meals I have had in a long time. All of the food was so exquisitely prepared. We loved the pasta with truffles and the yellowtail snapper. The shrimp and the octopus appetizers were great, too. The setting outside was charming and the service was excellent.
Besides the extraordinary cuisine and service you are surrounded by a very seductive ambiance filled with attractive and elegant people
We thought the menu was limited and overpriced. I was extremely sick in the middle of the night from either mishandled salad greens or undercooked chicken. Nice ambiance and excellent service. Otherwise, much ado about nothing. 👎🏻
Food and Service consistency excellent!
A perfect dinner in a special place
Cafe Boulud is the best food in Palm Beach. Amazing meal and equally amazing service.
We went there for dinner a couple of years ago and loved it but never went back again so we figured it would be a great opportunity to go back. It was wonderful we loved the food the service and the location of our table is totally wonderful the entire experience! We will defiantly be back!
Moving from NY to Florida we look for premier chef restaurants . We expected better and our overall experience was Subpar.
The experience was nothing short of 5 Star. The food was delicious and the service attentive!
Christmas Prix Fixe - great value! Restaurant was extremely warm and service was choppy at best. Heard many grumbles - possibly a function of working on Xmas!
Christmas Brunch was fabulous. Delicious food, pleasant, professional service and nice ambience. We would definitely do again.
The food was extraordinary. A wonderful selection although a prix fixe. The selection of wines was also nice.
