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.

First off, the bread was stale. I had the Moules Frites and they were very good although a little high priced for lunch at $33. My friend had the snapper, and it appeared on a gray plate, covered in a white yoghurt type sauce that did not look very appealing. This dish was $52 for lunch??? Quite pricey and although tasty very disappointing. To be at a restaurant of one of the most famous chef's in America, we expected so much more.

Remember fine dining? It’s still here at Cafe Boulud. The Dover sole was perfectly cooked, meunière sauce served on the side.

Warm, friendly space and service.
Go here for a stress-free dinner.

Will definitely return as often as I can.

Food and beverage was very expensive for what we had. It’s a lovely place and somewhere we have been to numerous times, though the prices are more like NYC restaurants. We will not be going back.

The key word is “Cafe”. The service was excellent, very attentive and charming. From there onwards, the price-value doesn’t relate. The wine list is extensive, however, the food itself is nothing much more than ‘okay’.
I’d go back for lunch with the knowledge that it’s not fine dining, just a cute setting with a high price tag.

Been wanting to eat here for years. Top class palm beach stuff. Great cocktails Pearfume and Bergamot Sour Marg.

The game-winner def was the Alba White truffle purses with a chicken au jus and parsley topped with shaved truffle. I tend to stray away from the daily specials but sometimes you gota bite.

Oh and her blue cheese filet wasn’t anything to scoff at either with some amazing mashed and onions. Or the chocolate pistachio soufflé. Or the Cobia Tartare.

My partner and I celebrated our anniversary at Cafe Boulud last night and could not possibly have had a better evening. The service and food were both incredible. We shared two starters — the cobia tartare and quail ballotine — that were outstanding. Short ribs and snapper followed as our mains. While we thought we were ending up with upside down chocolate cake for desert, our waiter brought us a second desert with Happy Anniversary written across the plate in chocolate. We’ll definitely be back — and won’t wait a year to do so.

Cafe Boulud is the perfect setting for a special occasion dinner. We sat outside and were very comfortable. The service was impeccable and our dinner was amazing. We started with the lobster salad and truffle agnolotti as appetizers, which were both excellent, and continued with filet mignon and snapper for dinner.

We never seem to be given a nice table here. Other tables were available but we were seated by the bus station and the staff kept walking back and forth right next to our table. Not very pleasant. The food was wonderful.

I saw the name Cafe Boulud pop up on open table. We happened to be in West Palm celebrating a friend’s birthday and I got so excited and recommended that we do Cafe Boulud for the dinner. I have been to Cafe Boulud in NYC as well as Daniels in NYC.
I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED. The appetizers were bland, the calabaza veloutte lacked a balance of flavor and the cobia ceviche was good. The squash risotto had no flavor, the duck breast was chewy and the duck fat was not rendered properly. All around a disappointing dinner. I hope that they improve the food. With all the competition in the area it’s just a matter of time before this closes down. Chef Boulud fix this. I really expected more from you.

Food was mediocre for it being a Daniel Boulud restaurant. I had to return my Dover Sole as the meunière sauce tasted like pot roast drippings and the fish was very salty. Highly disappointed but the staff was extremely nice about it.

My wife, 12 year old son and I had a wonderful meal at Cafe Boulud in celebration of her birthday. It was the first time we had eaten there and the food was wonderful, from the quail appetizers and beet salad to the Dover sole (x2) and the duck breast. The service was impeccable - the waiter even bought gluten free bread for my gluten sensitive son. We finished up with the flourless chocolate cake and the best tasting espresso I’ve ever had - outside of Rome itself! Highly recommend.
