Upscale food that tastes superb. There was a review that mentioned they charge you for bread and water but I wasnt charged for either on my bill so perhaps that info is incorrect?

Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar is one of Vancouver's best dining experiences!
The service, great somms, top notch wine list and amazing food - shines bright in a city with lots of choices we love Boulevard!
This level of cooking is world class - the seafood so fresh and tasty!!
Chef Alex Chen and Chef Roger Ma work the stoves like magician always surprize with great new dishes!
Alex is a rock star and could cook anywhere in the world, Vancouver is lucky to have this talent!
The tasting menu is a great choice and the seafood tower and the soufflé always a must order!
Can’t wait for my next visit – Yum!!

Went there with 2 other friends while on a MUN trip. price was not to bad for an upscale place, Food was seasonal and creative. Oysters were fantastic in all regards. Not very bright and excellent for a nice meal or for eating tons of delicious meals

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here. We both loved the dinning experience. The seafood tower with lobster was fantastic and special. The restaurant is beautiful and spaced out well. Finally, the service was top-notch and delightful. Thank-you for making our night memorable!

We ordered the seafood tower which can suit a variety of tastes.

Food was excellent. Server seemed confused and delivered wrong appetizers and several times forgot my guests food allergies. The service overall was good just seemed the server was bumbling. Not what I expected as far as service from a top level restaurant.

Fantastic mean and exceptional service. Only complaint would be the noise level was quite high. It may have been that we had a large table of 12 adjacent to us.

our server was excellent service oriented. Good recommendation on selection of wine. But it is a bit of over-priced on food overall. food tastes good, but not wow. I would rather to spend that amount of money at Hawksworth than Boulevard.

Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Canada, or more correctly in Canada as the Chef just won the Gold Medal at the Canadian Culinary Championships. Plenty of reasons why.
The service was also excellent !

I made a reservation for 7:00 pm. I got there 10 to and was asked to wait at the lounge because it’s not 7:00 yet or the table’s not ready. Then I was guided to my table at around 7:05.

I thought making a reservation meant I would have a table on time. Felt disappointed with the waiting time but otherwise service was great and food was great.

Service is good, although it felt like the waiter talked down to us a bit. Food is average but some good ideas with their slow cooked lamb dish. Don’t order the linguini alla vongole, it needs more than 5 clams! Beautiful restaurant design and comfortable.

I asked for something special and they say us down. And made us get back up and wait because you guys forgot to put my Valentine's card. And after we were seated it took the sommelier 1 hour to talk to us and than get our wine. It was a poor experience for my date. I came here before and I was happy but this time it was pretty bad...

I was there for dinner with three friends for a dine-out dinner. The atmosphere is very pretty and our server was lovely, but the quantity of food on the dine-out menu was woefully insufficient. The portions were comically small and I actually wondered if our servers were embarrassed at the small portions themselves.

Worthy trying. Service were good and as well as food. The only one little suggestion is that it would be perfect if the lobster bisque had a little bit less sodium. The black forest was excellent. Not too sweet but rich the smooth.
