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.

Really beautiful and safe outdoor dining! Loved my lobster roll and my cousin liked his salmon. Super friendly waiter and the manager came by to make sure all was well. Valet parking. Safe COVID protocol all around. I will definitely be back! Highly recommend!

Saturday brunch with wife. Website menu offered pancakes. We get there and menu no pancakes on menu. Waffles instead. They were so hard you needed a steak knife to cut. Also just slightly warm.
My poached eggs tasteless. No pizazz at all.
Waitress was great hearing our special dietary needs.
The outside space was exceptional.

Everything was great except for the service. The young woman waiting on us was more interested in chitchatting with the other workers. We had to ask for some things twice. We had to ask to get our waters refilled a few times. Otherwise the courtyard setting and food were wonderful.

We made an early reservation for our anniversary. We wanted to linger over drinks before our meal. We felt rushed and pushed to order fast. Would have started with an appetizer however there was only one offered. The evening was rushed first by the waiter and subsequently the Maitre D. The restaurant became very busy fast due to the majority of tables being outside. The ambience was challenged by a lathe group that was seated next to us. The menu offered a roasted beet salad . The beets were stone cold and chewy nothing like roasted beet salad I had previously, The SeaBass and Dover Sole were uneventful. We were asked if we wanted dessert which we ordered and then had a Happy Anniversary dessert dropped off unannounced on our table with no comment. The service was not up to standard of this restaurant nor the food . I know there are growing pains with a new Chef and the pandemic however the prices do not reflect this challenge.

way out of line on price & food
I've benn the finest restaurants in Palm beach & NY
This does not compare other than the setting.
Very limited menu, not for everybody
Example i had the amish chicken, 2 strips of chicken with a minimal portion of vegetable
$45 Justine one example
Not for me.

We are regular Cafe Boulud guests for twenty years. Enjoyed the stay at the hotel again and had dinner, breakfast and lunch. The food was even sharper than before ,,, especially the deserts were extraordinary. Service was impeccable and very friendly and entire visit very enjoyable. Wonderful Easter week short holiday in Palm Beach. We love Provence and this was the closest you can get to Provence on this continent. HK

We have been coming to Palm Beach for 5 years and have many restaurants we love. This was our first time at Cafe Boulud, and it is now hands-down our favorite. The food was sublime, the setting outside beautiful, service very good, and we had great cocktails with Eduardo, who gave us some good tips about steeping herbs for cocktails and seltzer makers. Expensive but worth it. We look forward to our return.

We enjoyed the beautiful courtyard and music at a nice sound level. We celebrated a special occasion and the chef indulged us with a lovely desert. Many thanks! The service was ok and we appreciate the wine recommendation. That been said I should add that the menu is not what we expected (it offers more American than French-style options), we waited too long for the food and the Benedict Eggs were like hard-boiled eggs.

We have been regulars at this restaurant ever since it opened. It has always been an elegant, quiet place with a great courtyard. This time it was noisy and full of people for a Humane Society benefit. The reservation person should have told us that the restaurant would be dominated by a large group, we would have gone on a different evening. The evening was a disappointment.

Service was slow. The server forgot half the things we ordered.
We spent our time listening to her apologies.
The duck as so salty that I couldn’t eat it.
Remember, the name is not enough.

I guess all great things come to there eventual end. Time is the great equalizer. Mr Boulud was the Everest for chefs. I dined at leCirque, Daniel, and the first cafe Boulud. The service was wonderful. Wine was wonderful. The setting was wonderful. But, again. The food was on the level of tourist restaurant status......painful

Walking distance from upscale shopping Worth Ave. We reserved through Open Table and were lucky to get the last outdoor lunch seating. The host was so personable and set the tone for a pampered afternoon. Great ambiance from the atrium setting. Will come back for every visit to Palm Beach.
