The food was good, but not exceptional. Unfortunately, when you set the bar high, your customers expect you to exceed it.

Lunch for a party of four, on the covered patio with lush gardens ("Brazilian Court") in the background-- setting and ambiance would be hard to beat. Valet parking attendants were a bit overwhelmed during a weekday lunch hour. Gracious, somewhat formal but very attentive table service. Fairly standard menu (e.g. Cobb salad, salmon, etc.); modest portions but beautifully and creatively... More

This is a first-class restaurant for fine dining--just be willing to pay the tab. We had dinner on a Wednesday evening. It was a lovely evening so we requested garden seating. We were seated on the terrace facing the garden fountain--a perfect setting. Our service was attentive without "hovering." The sommelier was very helpful with our wine selection. All of... More

While the service was attentive and courteous, we were not quite enamored with the food. In a restaurant of its repute, one's expectations are quite high: great food (meaning great taste), great presentation, and unmatched service with a well-trained staff. While cafe Boulud had good food, that food would have scored five stars at TGI Friday's, but not at Boulud!... More

Not up to the expected standard for this venue. Food was over salted. Service was spotty at best. Food was not served together (sides came 5 minutes late).....we have had better this trip to Palm Beach at other restaurants.

The place is amazing, the service is also very good. The drinks were made to perfection: dry Martini and the very special Cosmopolitan with a frozen Orchide. However the food was standard, which is ok however the price tag requieren a much higher standard of food than what was served. The Pork chop was good but a bit hard. The... More

We went for lunch and sat in the courtyard. The food was amazing as was the service and ambiance . Suggest that you sit outside. We were a large group and everyone was delighted with their food. Can't wait to go back

Most of the time, this is the classiest and best restaurant in Florida, but not always. The prices are NY, London, etc and most of the time, it is worth it. Lately, not as good, perhaps it is the season. The last time we had lunch there, it was mostly empty, and this works both ways-when things are slow the... More

Last Friday night we ate at Café Boulud in Palm Beach, FL. They offered a Dinner Le prix fixe menu and Al la Carte choices as well. After cocktails we ordered the Gaspacho Andaloun and the Mesclun Salad. I had the NY Strip Steak and she had the Sautéed Mahi Mahi Mahi. For dessert we had the warm upside down... More

Description
Cafe Boulud at the Brazilian Court Hotel – one of Palm Beach’s most coveted dining destinations – has undergone a complete renovation! Experience the all new look and menu this season, just steps from Worth Avenue.

The restaurant’s new design is lighter and elegant, achieved with unique touches like a shimmery 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, with an inventive new cocktail list and craft beers on tap, or enjoy the crowd and scenery; food is served at the bar throughout the day.

The newly renovated terrace and private dining rooms are a destination for entertaining in style, whether for a lavish event or to host a memorable wedding day. The menu balances signature Boulud dishes and French favorites inspired by his restaurants around the world, with a spotlight on the region’s incredible seafood and produce.

During the high season, jackets are preferred. Shorts and beachwear are not permitted.
