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.

Couldn’t have been better! Food was outstanding, perfect portions, service great, very relaxed atmosphere. Wine was excellent. Price was reasonable for everything we ordered.

I rated noise level low as we ate outside.

Our third @flavorpalmbeach dinner of 2021 @CafeBoulud did not disappoint! We did stray from the tasting menu starting with a rich and savory lobster bisque followed by king crab cavatelli and the kurobota pork chop with popcorn grits and confit potato for entrees.  Dessert was a smooth coffee ice cream and a palate cleansing melon-tarragon sorbet accompanied by the most buttery soft melt in your mouth cookies. Our espresso was served with lemon madelines which were a fantastic compliment and end to this splendid meal. Service by Yon and his support team was on point and as excellent as the food was.  The beautiful historic Brazilian Court was the perfect backdrop to a perfect evening.

I have eaten at this restaurant money times over the years and have never been compelled to leave a negative review, however this most recent trip was very disappointing.

Primarily as the food was not what it should be for a Daniel Bouloud restaurant. I ordered a Cobb salad, the lettuce was somewhat wilted and I found one leaf that was browning. That kind of shot the whole meal as nothing felt fresh about the food or the experience.

Very nice lunch. Very good service from a competent staff as it should be as this restaurant is quite expensive. Expensive is fine if that is your expectation and indeed we knew in advance. I would only suggest that the hostess should be a welcoming presence not someone who shows you to the table with an unfriendly robotic demeanor.

After cocktails we ordered wine with our dinner but it came so late we only had 1 glass and it wasn't very good.
They shouldn't have charged us for it. The waiter was very matter of fact about
it being so late. No excuse there were only 4 tables being served.

The ambience is wonderful. This time the food left a little to be desired. The Dover sole was overwhelmed with a large amount of spinach which totally overshadowed the delicate taste of the sole. The octopus appetizer was good as was the swordfish. Service is always wonderful.
