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.

Just delightful! A nice 20 minute walk from the West Palm Beach side, it was worth coming this way for a tantalizing meal with delicious flavor. Curtis our server was humorous and attentive. They were able to seat our group of 16 in 4 tables of 4.

This was a return visit to this specific location as I’ve also dined with them in NYC. My wife loved her food. I usually do...but I found the seafood risotto nicely intense but too salty. I also ordered the Halibut off the menu which I found to be a bit over cooked and dry. It must have sat under the heater too long. Thank goodness for the delicious sauce.

Also a man at a 2 couple table next to us and seated after our starter used f* this and f* that so much and so loudly it ruined our mood. Finally at another adjacent table, a woman brought her dog which sat in her lap until she needed to take it out for a walk. Why do dogs have to be allowed in high end restaurants. A real turnoff.

Not the usual experience for this high end restaurant.

Fabulous experience. Marina, our server was unbelievable. The food recommendations, her attention to detail and prompt service made this experience top notch. My GF ordered the Dover Sole that came highly recommend by Marina and what this restaurant is known for and I’ll probably regret not ordering it for the rest of my life.

Cafe Boulud is a must. This is 5 star all the way. The menu is outstanding. The food is outstanding. The level of service is just plain over the top. Expect to pay for all of the amenities, but I can guarantee that when you leave, you will feel that it was well worth the extra expense. This is a restaurant that you must go to at least once. Probably the best dining experience in South Florida. Kudos to Daniel Boulud.

Sorry, wish it was better. We have been here many times over the years. Stopped coming 2 years ago and wanted to try it again. Kitchen is doing an OK job. Menu is simplified and better.

Broccolli side with burnt garlic was weird and rather amateurish. Octopus was very fresh, yet relied on Pancetta and still didn't taste like much. Bucann's take on it is better.

The Halibut was Ok - very fresh - not a mind blowing preparation.

Over all - the food was good - Vegan in party was OK with vegetables (please pay attention to Vegans - they are a growing factor in the dining decision). We all have had better food in other places on the Island.

If this was somewhere else, it would be very good - but after all, this is Boulud...

This is the second time we've dined at Cafe Boulud, and it has easily garnered "my favorite restaurant in Palm Beach" status. Located off the main strip in a lovely luxury hotel in a residential neighborhood, the atmosphere is serene and sophisticated; you can easily carry on a conversation with your dinner partner. They do all the "little touches", like starting you off with an amuse bouche, crumbing your table discreetly whenever required, and ending the meal with a delicious basket of fresh madelines. The food is exquisite (I had the duck breast and my husband had the homemade taggliatelle, both excellent). Excellent wine list. Service is impeccable. Expensive, yes, but not atrocious by resort standards. I love this restaurant!

Superb food and very good service. We have been there only twice, the visits separated by several years, and we would recommend this restaurant to anyone with a few extra coins in his/her jeans. It's pricey but delivers at a very high level. When the occasion calls for it this is a place that does not disappoint.

Four of us decided to have lunch there after visiting a museum. Three of us ordered the prix fixe menu. We had the grilled romaine salad, which was very good. One had the mussels which were huge and very tender. I had the risotto which also was good. One of the gentlemen ordered the Cobb salad with a side of French fries. The other gentleman ordered the pork tenderloin. The food was very good. We also each ordered a carafe of wine, which was the equivalent of an 8 glass for $17 - 19. Rather expensive for a glass, but we were in a highly rated restaurant so that was to be expected. Our concern was with the service. Our server, Christen, at times seemed to forget about us. The French fries were not served until the very end of the meal, although the server was asked several times about them. Coffee and a cappuccino were also ordered. These were served after we had received the check and after we were finished eating dessert. We had to flag down the server several times to get our water glasses refilled. I also did not like how the servers reached across us to serve us our plates, although there was room for them to serve from the side. I would expect that in a restaurant as highly rated as Café Boulud that the servers would be trained in proper serving techniques.
