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.

We have been to many Daniel Boulud restaurants. This one is a lovely place to have a special meal. Decor is clean and welcoming, service is efficient and the menu is full of Boulud classics. We loved the salmon crudo to start along with the tomato/burata salad. The fish (trout and swordfish) was... read more

The restaurant was lovely. I ate dinner with a large group and returned the next day for lunch with the girls. For dinner, both my husband and I could not resist the scallops. Cooked to perfection the were served atop baby radishes in a tasty beurre sauce. I had a kale salad with marinated chicken breast for lunch. It was... More

A group of 7 went out for dinner. My first time. Was told the bar area was just re-done, and much better. We were seated at a table towards the back of the restaurant. Atmosphere was very nice. Service was excellent. It was pricey, but folks in our group liked most items ordered. Very good/excellent: gazpacho, sunburst farms trout, dover... More

This is a beautiful restaurant and bar located in a wonderful Palm Beach boutique hotel. It is very expensive. My food was terribly bland. The escargots appetizer was just strange. Very little taste and very few snails. I do not order escargot in hopes of having fried cheese balls with them. I had to search for the tiny snails. For... More

I attended a lovely wedding luncheon. The hotel was full of great energy and excitement. The room was beautifully designed with views overlooking the outside dining activity and courtyard. The servers were wonderful and the food was fantastic. I have to make a point to come back and try again for dinner. It was just enchanting. I was very impressed... More

I stayed in the hotel for a week in January and dined a couple times in the Cafe and had drinks most evenings at the bar.. The drinks and bar tenders are skilled, friendly and have finesse. I particularly love their signature drink The White Cosmo.

Bar tenders at the bar seem preoccupied in their existence and regular clients while newbies politely die of thirst. Menu is interesting but famous chef must have been bored training as the food is just so so. Something is lacking in the kitchen? Perhaps the recipe book. May be resting too much on reputation.

We has a wonderful lunch at Cafe Boulud . The service was outstanding as was the food and the ambience. The wine list was outstanding if over priced. All our dishes were well prepared and served by a very accommodating staff

Great atmosphere in a newly redone restaurant with noise reducer furnitures and carpets, great service beside the bus boys forgetting to give you a refill of bread, good food but for the price, you would have a better meal, higher quality, and less expensive at La Cigale. Let's face it, $550 for six people is a bit much!
