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.

Ordered sea bass- wasn't fresh - skin on and very thin piece ( instead of the thick ultra white juicy meat I am used to) - I never had sea bass that looked like that before.
Considering the price, not worth it!

Comfy dining room We were nicely greeted. Service was good. Everyone was pleased with their
dishes. We were there during Flavors of Palm Beach, 3 course $49 which is a great deal. Food
was definitely nicely executed, but hard to beat Buccan.

Our server was Curtis. Wow what a treasure of knowledge! He explained each meal in detail with pride. Our table in the window was perfect. We highly advise anyone that is in Palm Beach to enjoy what jewels of talent for your taste buds and presence the chef has. The entire service staff was amazing also. We had the duck and the redfish! Perfection!

Our experience was great. We made a special request since it was a special occasion. Initially the staff was hesitant to accomadate our wishes. Eventually Vincent, who was attentive and bright, understood our request and was able to compromise. He even surprised my wife with an impropmtu anniversary platter. It was surprising and delightful and we always look forward to out annual dining experience with Cafe Bouluds staff, ambience and of course food. Furthermore, every bit of food was amazing. I had the best flat iron steak in my life, which also helped make the moment special. The steak was rendered perfectly and had an almost carmel-like texture. Overall, it was exquisite and personable. Thanks again to Vincent and our staff, cheers!

We have been going to Café Boulud now for many years. Not very often but typically on special occasions. Beautiful ambiance. Fantastic staff. Very good food. Pricey but one would expect that for this caliber of establishment. Looking forward to the next time.

Had the most amazing dinner here last night! My fiancé and I started the evening off with some martinis prepared table side, very cool and tasty! We shared some apps to start which were all great (foie gras, crab fra Diavlo, and steak tartar prepared tableside!) we enjoyed a lovely bottle of red wine from Bordeaux which was a steal with their 50% off all bottles of wine!! I really enjoyed my pork chop and my fiancé couldn’t stop talking about his trout! We shared the berry mousse to finish off our perfect evening! Our waitress gave us great recommendations and we are already planning when we’ll be back!

We had a wonderful time. My wife and I chose to bring our kids -- ages 5 and 6 -- to their first "fancy" dinner here. The experience was amazing. The service was spot-on. The food -- the tasting menu -- was outstanding. The wine, paired with the tastings, was great, too. Our kids were sufficiently enthralled by the décor, the servers, and the overall experience that they behaved calmly and beyond their years. The food served to them from the kids' selections was also quite good. Overall, we would highly recommend the restaurant for any special occasion. This one was certainly special for us.

I have not been at Boulud since year. I know the NYC locations and the one in Miami. My memories about this dinners are very fond. Thats why I thought I take friends out there. I liked your new decoration, the room looked modern and fresh. But the food was not outstanding the way I had in mind. For 300$ per couple I would hope for more special food. My pasta was very average, a little piece of country pate for 19$ really...
The dessert was either not tasty at all or just a nice try of some crumbles on 2 little pieces of sorbet.
Well I am not planning to come back soon...may be for a drink or a lunch Menu for 49$ that sounds like ok...
I was disappointed, and tried to find a good reason: may be the real chef is on vacation? May be its the 2. Line of crew in summer and the real deal is in the winter season. I do not know....
It did not speak Daniel Boulud at all.
Sorry Katharina Braun

One of the best places to dine in PB. Excellent service & amazing food! Can’t ask for anything better.. We both had the special three course dinner. A great value and thoughtfully prepared. Just make certain to clarify the cuts or fish selections as they may be different than the description. Not bad but may avoid a surprise.

The food and wine was only surpassed by the company of my three friends. Also, the charming gentleman from NY whose birthday was 7/22 also who bought us another round of wine!!! A perfect ending to a perfect lunch as always.

This is the fourth time we've eaten at Cafe Boulud and it get's better every time. Whoever is running their kitchen is doing a superb job. The highlights of our most recent meal were i) Lamb Ragu with Gnocchi-like knots, and ii) Wild Mushroom Risotto. The Ragu was light, just barely coating the delectible homemade pasta which melted in your mouth. I love Risotto and this was among the best I've had. It started with a rich homemade chicken stock combined with an assortment of wild mushrooms, and finished with butter and a drizzle of what tasted like truffle oil - no visible cheese or cream anywhere. It was pure and superb.

The only down-side was their exhorbitantly priced wine list.

Everything was outstanding, but, unless you are part of the "rich and famous", it is a little pricey. However, for a special occasion (it was a birthday), it is certainly worth the trip to Palm Beach (we live in Boca Raton) AND the expense. They certainly know how to make one feel special at Café Boulud. Plain food becomes a work of art there. Wish we had a resto that compares to Café Boulud in Boca Raton! What is also wonderful is that it is not pretentious, just wonderful!
