Best brunch in palm beach.
Lovely and delicious!
Went here last night with a friend from out of town and everything was perfect! I had a mango and passion fruit cocktail that was exactly what I wanted it to be and my friend went more traditional with a kir Royal, then we did a pairing of red wines with our courses that went beautifully with the food! We ordered multiple courses so we could try a little bit of everything. Started with the rabbit valentine and a tomato and beef salad special then moved on to a cheese filled ravioli and a mushroom cappelacci special both super flavorful and delicious! After this we had a sea bass with parsnip and a swordfish with jalapeño and lemon (yummy!) and finished with a non traditional charred duck breast cooked to a perfect medium rare. Best duck I’ve ever had! You can’t go wrong with the soufflé or the chocolate dulcey mousse to finish it off!! At the end we were both very full and merry from our evening! Will definitely be back! Props to you Cafe Boulud!
Presidents’ weekend in Palm Beach same as most great locations..Busy! This place was hopping but every way you could
rate the dinner would have to be a 5 star.
Excellent service and setting
Birthday lunch. Great!
We had a reservation outside however since it was raining we decided to have lunch inside instead. We enjoyed the lunch prix fix menu. All tasted delicious and Judith and Victor took great care of us. We will return on a sunny day to enjoy a lunch in their garden
So second time in a row I requested outdoor seating on Open Table and didn't get it. Sad. My husband had a wonderful meal albeit indoors. MIne was not so good. The place is elegant and the wines are over the top, also in price, his dover sole and Stone crab as an appetizer were delightful and educatedly traditional--you could probably buy the boat to fish for the seafood yourself for the cost of his dinner of course. I ordered from the specials and the chef has apparently decided that indian fusion is an important concept. I had yellow tail crudo covered in a kind of curry "paste" that totally masked the delicate flavor of the fish as well as having a weird mouth feel-- I am a purist and believe crudo needs only citrus and olive oil. I like Indian flavors but this was fresh raw fish abuse. I then had a loup de mer, another delicate white fleshed fish, surrounded by a puree of parsnips and roast parsnip as well as mushrooms. Purist again I do not believe that a white fleshed fresh fish should have to compete with the sweet flavor of parsnip or with woodsy mushrooms. On the other hand their menu also has duck breast and peanuts as a main course-- I don't get this either. If you order traditionally you will have a great meal-- if you stray you cannot predict. Of course the airy mini- beignets at the end make dessert unnecessary and almost made me forget my somewhat odd although beautifully prepared meal. Service is superb. The site is lovely. I will learn and will be back.
AWFUL....my husband and I BOTH had to send back our drinks!! Service terrible ..Ordered Dover Sole for $69 .. fishy .. smelly .., yuk!!! Shame on you DANIEL !!! Beautiful surroundings.. we sat out side in garden . That part was great.. but that was about it!!!
The ambience in the garden was absolutely amazing. However, a very stuffy and rude vibe starting with the hostess. First, they told us no tables were available outside when in fact they had numerous free tables. After insisting I asked for a table outside when I confirmed my reservation they called me a liar (not to my face, but my husband heard them discussing that they don’t confirm a reservation-I have a voice mail to prove it) we got a table outside. My duck was cooked perfectly! However, my husbands steak was so dry and not very tasty. We sent it back and got another, but this one just wasn’t great. Very disappointing given how expensive it was and the reputation of this restaurant. Maybe an off day not sure, but disappointing for a $200+ dinner. Not sure we would return.
Nice but not wonderful. We went for lunch ... had made the reservation online but they had the wrong time at the restaurant for some reason . But not a problem, they had plenty of tables.
Ordered Oysters and the Swordfish Nicoise Salad. The east coast oysters fine but nothing special. The salad also fine but a bit tasteless and perhaps underdressed. Service was very good an overall it was a nice experience ... but not wonderful.
This is the place for pure elegance: food...service... ambiance....the best!!
Absolutely beautiful restaurant with superb cuisine. Everything we ordered was perfection. Everyone that came to our table made us feel so welcome and special.
we were so disappointed. we have been to cafe boulud at least once a year since coming and buying our condo in 2008. this time, we noticed the following:
- more people dining, so possibly less personal attention to each diner by the chef
-used to have a wonderful, unique bread tray,.....now just mediocre bread
-much more expensive than before
-very small complex plates. for example the roasted option salad that tasted burnt and the complex crab cake that was just blah
-the lemon deserts small in quantity for 2 people
will not come again
Outstanding from beginning to end!: the food, the service & ambiance made this a memorable experience! For appetizers we had the charcuterie and the chilled broccoli soup with creme fraiche & caviar; entrees of mushroom risotto & the pork chop saltimbocca with gnocchi & a fabulous charred broccoli side dish. The piece de resistance were the desserts: berry tart & warm mini madeleines !! We highly recommend this lovely restaurant & if possible dine outside, too!
I have visited this restaurant multiple times and am a Florida local. I was extremely disappointed this Valentine’s Day when the ball was dropped on multiple levels. We were not even given the “complementary” chef app nor desert. The service was sub par on multiple levels with the waitress apologizing for the multiple mishaps. When a couple agrees to pay $400 for dinner, there needs to be a level of service received. My wife and I were extremely disappointed and had the worst Valentine’s Day in 19 years.
Tout état impeccable, la perfection aurait été d’être assis dans les jardins.........
Food was exquisite, absolutely fabulous! We enjoyed the Valentine Day prix fix. Staff did superb job not missing a thing!
Amazing night, couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate.
Wonderful dinner, food very good and atmosphere terrific
