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.

Very nice ambience and attentive staff. I had Dover Sole which was delicious but at $68 the most I have ever paid for Dover Sole which is usually around $40-50. My wife had Cobb Salad which was not on menu and she rated it just OK. We had lunch there a couple days earlier and the burgers were delicious and a pretty good value at $24. The butter crunch salad was also a winner.

We were so happy to make this reservation and celebrate that we were finally out and about and not in isolation, we thought of cafe Boulud immediately as our first outing. We have been going to the restaurant for 10 years and was our favorite. We always got the best “white glove” service, and exquisite food. We were so disappointed with the food, it was flavorless and lacked presentation. We didn’t mind at all to have the separations of the table, that was totally fine and acceptable, but the food was bad. We couldn’t believe it! We didn’t complain because they had just opened from the quarantine and we figured the personnel must have gone through a lot of adjustments. We were not expecting the food to be bad. And the bill was so high, made it worst. Very unexpected to pay so much for that, and you would think someone would notice that the food was retired from the table half eaten.

Cafe Boulud Palm Beach continues to impress, even more with the current further separation of tables. The level of service remains excellent and the international staff adds culture to their impeccable timing and disposition. The food is exquisite and I will always return.

Always a pleasure to dine outside at Boulud; but especially nice after 8 weeks’ time. Soft reopening was perfectly orchestrated. Looking forward to returning soon.

On opening night, the Dover Sole for three persons ($68 each) was NOT up to your usual standards.
The fish was not plump and poorly cooked and tasteless.

We enjoyed a delightful luncheon experience in the outdoor courtyard. With impeccable expertise, we were served a silky vegetable - based risotto and perfectly prepared lobster roll. Cafe Boulud offers a beautiful setting, attentive staff and world class cuisine.

Everything was outstanding. The service was excellent and they even brought a special dessert with candle without being asked. They pay attention to every detail. Impeccable! The food, and they practiced social distancing with the tables. Perfect day in a chaotic world. Many thanks.

We had been to Cafe Boulud for lunch, but never for dinner. Very nice option! I do love the ambiance, and the food and service are very good. This was a weeknight where they were hosting some sort of music event, so it did get VERY noisy before we left.

We enjoyed a perfect night at Cafe Boulud. Lived in the area for several years and tried this restaurant for the first time because of a recent amazing experience on Celebrity Edge. From being greeted by the valet, welcomed by the host, through our entire experience the meal was perfect. I ordered the Black Angus Filet Mignon in the red wine jus. Pomme & Carmel, and warm upside down guanaja chocolate cake . My steak was cooked to a perfect medium rare as I requested. We will definitely be back . The outside terrace was wonderful space to enjoy our dinner. Prior to sitting we stopped by the bar for martinis - the bartender was polite and made a me a perfectly chilled dirty martini. This restaurant will not disappointment

We have a perfectly fine dinner which is why I didn’t give it a better rating. It was just okay and not special, a meal we could have had anywhere. We were looking for the Boulud experience, this was lacking his sparkle.

Nice dining room, food was good and wine selection very extensive (albeit expensive, but that’s to be expected). Service was attentive to a fault, too rushed: even though I specifically asked that they not bring the appetizers until we had finished our cocktails, they did anyways. And dishes followed in quick succession, without much of a break at all...annoying...you really feel that they are pushing you out of the door, and at those prices, you’d like to linger a bit!

The food was not remarkable, the risotto entree was unpalatable in appearance and only fair in taste. We should have sent back. A flavor in the sauce for the swordfish had an unfamiliar seasoning. We hope for the best next time. Quite crowded and too noisy for table conversation.
