Café Boulud Palm Beach is located in the Brazilian Court Hotel at 301 Australian Avenue. The ever changing menu reflects Chef Daniel Boulud’s seasonal French-American cuisine. We feature a lively weekend brunch for $24 and, to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, a $20.03 prix-fixe weekday lunch. At dinner we offer a $35 3-course menu seven days a week during the evenings in addition to our a la carte menu. Happy Hour is offered daily in our adjacent lounge and bar from 4pm-7:30pm. We offer BYOB on Tuesday nights through the summer months, with no corkage fee. For your private and corporate events we offer two private dining options: The Ballroom (seated events for up to 90 & receptions for up to 120) and The Conservatory (seated events for up to 50 and receptions for up to 80). Our Ballroom and Conservatory offer guests flexibility for formal meetings, private business entertaining or social soirées.

Very Disappointed

Had dinner and were disappointed on almost all fronts. Ordered foie gras, which was served very over done. It is amazing that a French restaurant would let such an obviously over cooked item leave the kitchen! They did replace the item with one properly cooked, and that was good. However, we... read more

Cafe Boulud is one of my favorite places for business lunch in Palm Beach. The food quality is always superb and the service is right on, without being pushy. The Prix Fixe lunch menus offer a budget minded choice but even the standard menu items are on par with the better West Palm alternatives.

Great weather, great setting, great service, great friends and great food. We make an annual pilgrimage here with our dearest friends for a wonderful brunch. We have always ordered from the very reasonably priced prie fixe menu but other choices are available. Our favorite Daniel Boulud restaurant. Obviously we highly recommend it.

I made a reservation well in advance for Valentine's Day. We promptly arrived and waited just a few minutes to be seated. The ambiance is about a 6 out of 10 and it was nice but not what one expects for such an expense. The maitre'd was unreasonably stuck on himself and most unpleasant. The wait staff were wonderful when... More

Bearing the Boulud name, this is a restaurant where you would expect sophisticated meals and excellent service. It simply does not live up to expectations. On our last visit, service with a scowl was what we experienced and the food is merely good not fantastic. This establishment has no similarity to Daniels of New York.

This is an exquisite restaurant with dining on the outdoor patio surrounded by beautiful flowers and foliage. the food is very good and the service and ambience can't be beat. Lunch prices are the best bargain in town. Our mistake was a reservation on the late end of lunch seatings and they had run out of coq au vin. The... More

Outstanding menu and service. Can't match in Palm Beach. Wine selection is great and prices are reasonable. Setting is wonderful. Valet parking is quick.

The artistry behind my cocktail alone was amazing. They placed an ice ball, which had a flower inside, into my drink. The restaurant has unique "Floridian", South American and European feeling. They have great menu with European flavor and twist. Everyone was able to mix and match the food and create their own personalized menu. This place executed truly Michelin... More

CafeBoulud is located in the Brazilian Court Hotel. We have had several meals here with wonderful food and excellent service. Outside dining is available on a picturesque patio full of flowers, palms and other greenery.
