What an enjoyable dinner we had at the Cafe Boulud, The Brazilian Hotel in Palm Beach. Starting off with valet parking! Enter into the romantic outdoor seating to what seems like the only table in the garden setting! If you want a quite, romantic evening with excellent wine selection and an interesting menu that is hard to decide which fabulous... More

I dined three weeks ago with three friends and with great expectations. Boulud is one of America's great chef's after all. The atmosphere was perfect. Just as it should have been. The service was good; not great but good. Unfortunately the food was not inspired. The menu was varied and interesting but we were there for the tasting menu. One... More

I knew we were off to a shaky start when I jokingly asked our server if the stone crabs were from the Gulf or the Atlantic. His reply “they are from Canada” he was serious. I suggested he should speak with the Chief. When he returned he whispered, they were from Florida.. The wine steward put on a decent show... More

Had Thanksgiving dinner at Cafe Boulud at The Brazilian Court.Palm Beach. We enjoyed all the traditional flavors of Thanksgiving dinner in the spectacular turkey meal we had last night. The environment was sophisticated and people watching was a treat. Service was exceptional and the Ambiance was just very elegant. Looking forward to return to enjoy drinks in the court yard...

Visited Cafe Boulud in early January last year. Dined here again recently and had a more enjoyable experience. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Great flavors and very nice presentation. Curtis was great with us, outstanding service and the kitchen was great to work the tasting menu around our dietary restrictions. Definitely recommend it and will likely... More

We had visited the New York relatives of Cafe Boulud and were always satisfied and favorably impressed. This experience was quite a disappointment. Perhaps because it was a group dinner for about 30 people or perhaps because of what the organizers had arranged, but the result was clearly below our expectations. Arriving to the hotel and being guided into the... More

Had dinner at Cafe Boulud while staying at the Brazilian Court hotel. Food and drinks were very good (had the hanger steak and calamari). Service was also excellent, with all the servers very attentive. The seating outside was very nice with a view of the hotel courtyard and fountain. Not a cheap dinner but a place I would return to.

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.
