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.

While staying in Palm Beach we had the pleasure of dining at Cafe Boulud Palm Beach. There were absolutely no complaints from our perfect table to the gracious service to the delicious dinner. I enjoyed the Beef duo -- tenderloin and short rib -- followed by a molten chocolate cake with pistachio ice cream. It was so tempting to go back, but we'll save it for our next visit to the area. Defnitely go!

Dinner was a training session in what NOT to do. Waitstaff inexperienced, halting, painfully slow -- dinner appetizers took one hour and the entrees followed 45 minutes later. Left without coffee and dessert because we were so angry. Fish was not fully cooked....all the entrees were very salty (and we like salt). There are so many superior choices -- don't be swayed by the name because Daniel obviously does NOT know what is happening here. Never again.

It feels like management has lost touch here. The food is not good at all, trying for innovation and failing at making it new. Waitstaff lack training—you order a whole bottle of wine for two and they ask you if you care for another glass every time it needs topping up, which is potentially embarrassing. At lunch today the hostess had us wait ten minutes (with a reservation) in spite of the fact there were three empty tables on the terrace where we wanted to be. Finally (after my complaint) they gave us one of those tables but the other two were never to be occupied. When I mentioned the unnecessary inconvenience we were made to endure to the head waited he made up some story about cancellations. And yes, as somebody else said, the decor is a fright: burnt orange!

We were here last week and had a wonderful lunch. Anyone who is close by in October and November , they have fixed price three course lunch for a shade over $20. This is unbeatable. The restaurant is quiet. The food is excellent. The place is Beautiful. Don't miss it.

My wife and I were walking by on a beautiful Friday evening and decided to see if they had room for 2 without a reservation. To our wonderful surprise, after a short wait by the busy bar, we were escorted to a very romantic courtyard table next to the fountain. The service was attentive but not overpowering. . The bisque, beet salad, Snapper and ribeye were all above expectations. The overall experience was very memorable and romantic.
