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.

Beautiful setting on the outdoor patio. Waiter and hostess could have been a little friendlier when we asked about AC/temperature control but overall service was good. My third time here and will definitely be back.

We love to dine at the Cafe Boulud at the Brazilian Court, On Australian Avenue, in Palm Beach, Florida. We have had many a delightful brunch, dinner, or special event there, and the food and service is always worthy of their Michelin Three Star raring. Today was the Mother’s Day Brunch, prices at $118 per person. Was it worth it? Read on…

The ambiance here is always elegant, and starts at the door of the historic hotel, after your valet escorts you from your car. The richly decorated entryway and waiting area, followed by the short walk to the restaurant entrance, puts you in the mood for some fine dining, fun, and elegance.

The buffet spread today was outrageous - from the Smoked Salmon to the Fried Chicken, the Pork Cutlets to the Quiche, and everything in between, the food was excellent! I did have an issue when they changed out the Shrimp platter and took all the serving pieces - I had to grab the shrimp with a tiny pincer, and scoop the cocktail sauce onto my plate with a “borrowed” spoon, but it was worth it! The salads - my favorite was the Orzo Pasta and the Caesar - were awesome, and the desserts? Too perfect to eat - but I did. And now, I’m in chocolate heaven.

The restaurant is surprisingly quiet, given the eclectic, well-dressed Palm Beach denizens chatting away over their cuisine. Even the “purse puppy” at the next table was well-behaved. And the elegant guests lent their gravitas to the occasion, making you instantly feel your were dining in some French cafe in Paris, oblivious to the time and day.

The brunch was over way too soon, and we lingered over our espressos and dessert, not wanting to leave, but, alas, we am led out of the restaurant, full but happy, already looking forward to our next visit.

This was our third Easter brunch at Cafe Boulud and it never disappoints. We love both the inside and outside dining rooms. The food was excellent and the entire day was not rushed and very relaxing. We will be there next year and will be trying this Resturant for my wife’s birthday.

We tried Cafe Boulud because our usual Easter brunch spot was all booked. Now Cafe Boulud is our Easter Brunch tradition. The location is tucked away, an actual hidden gem. We were warmly welcomed to a serene casually elegant dining room and enjoyed an array of delicious brunch items. My favorite was the leg of lamb, everything else was exquisite as well. The service was also beyond perfection, I felt like we had our own team of servers who anticipated our every desire. This would have been more than enough, but the events coordinator came to our table and personally invited my grandson to an Easter egg hunt and Easter bunny photo op that was intimate and indulgent. When we commented on the amazing brunch, our waiter suggested other specials that the restaurant offers throughout the off season. Cafe Boulud, in my opinion is compares to or is better than the Breakers brunch in style and freshness if you prefer fewer but highest quality over quantity.

Though the server was great and the cuisine quite good, it was not the best choice for dining alone.
Also very pricey for the fare, other places in Palm Beach who may not have the prestige of the Boulud
name, were above the cut.

We had the most beautiful dinner out in the courtyard near the fountain. The food and service was wonderful. It was such a memorable meal that we can’t wait to go back. I had the duck, my daughter had the fish special and my husband had the filet. We all shared a soufflé.it was all delicious and we also loved the White Cosmo with the frozen orchid in it. Can’t wait to return.

Food was excellent but portions and sides were extremely small. The main meal was excellent but lacked adequate side vegetables. Dessert included ice cream but the ice cream amount was about two bites worth. We don’t mind spending money but would have been happy with an appropriate amount commensurate with the price. Overall setting was nice.

Cafe Boulud is a wonderful gem of a restaurant located in The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach.
Always a pleasure to have breakfast there-the staff and servers are friendly and efficient. Very willing to please. Judy is an excellent head-server and oversees the Dining Room to ensure that everyone is taken care of.
Cafe Boulud is great for a power breakfast or lunch or simple meal alone or with friends.

The environment is upscale/sophisticated yet calming. Food is freshly prepared to order using farm to table ingredients with french flair. Cafe Boulud is my go-to place and never disappoints.
Will return.
