Best food and best service
Went in with high expectations based on what we had heard, but were very disappointed. The service was awful as our server was quite rude and didn’t really seem to care at all. Our food was quite mediocre as well.
Perfect upscale spit for a great dinner. Highly recommend the seafood Tower with the lobster. Pricey but good.
Great staff, service, and food was fantastic. Portions were small, so most people will need an appetizer, otherwise they will feel hungry afterwards- which we were. Other than that, outdoor seating was comfortable, heaters meant we didn’t need to bundle up and we enjoyed the plants on the tables and overall ambiance.
Braved the patio to be delighted with delicious food, wonderful service, beautiful wines! Thank you for making my boyfriend’s birthday such a great experience!
We had a fantastic meal. Boulevard has done a good job accommodating the work safe regulations and we ate outside under cozy heat lamps. We enjoyed the wine recommended by the sommelier.
Service level decreased. Forgot to bring our wine. And also took away things that are not supposed to be taken away from the table. No longer serve the bakery kids menus has $15-20 price tag it used to be $10. Not many selections from the menu.
It was a cold blustery rainy dinner but the restaurant did everything they could to make us all comfortable :)
My husband and I were so excited to have our first dining experience at the award winning Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, but after spending $250 on our meal we left quite disappointed over the food. The service and ambiance were 10/10...the food was 2/10. Sadly, we would not go back or recommend to our foodie friends.
Best capacious in the city. And the halibut was amazing
Very poor service, food was not good for what it was worth, staff not very accommodating and rude.
No gluten free options besides oysters on happy hour. Server didnt try to accommodate the allergy so we actually left after one drink and ate next door at Italian kitchen who was able to accommodate the food sensitivity.
Very disappointing. Seated and waited 15-20 minutes while multiple different servers passed our table ignoring us the entire time. No one acknowledged us after we were seated.Did not appear overly busy or I might have had more patience and tried to get someones attention. We ended up walking ourselves out without a single staff member acknowledging us as we passed by them. Can not speak to the quality of the food as I did not get an opportunity to order anything.
Exceptional service and excellent food. Highly recommend.
The service was great at Boulevard! We had really fresh seafood, authentic entrees, amazing cocktails. It’s the place to go to for special occasions or date night!
Boulevard is amazing every time! Favorite restaurant in Vancouver! Cant wait for the desserts,they never disappoint!
Great service!!! Servers, management, food all excellent!!!
Christine was amazing! It was a very special occasion and the staff there did the extra that made it a beautiful and memorable evening. Thank you very much.
What a wonderful vibe and great food. Our server was outstanding, personable and engaging. I felt like we were a welcomed guest at her home.
Amazing place for dinner and great value too for what you get
I’ve always love going to Boulevard Kitchen. It’s one of my favourite restaurant. They have one of the best Foie Gras in town.. I had cravings for it so I hauled my entire family for dinner. As always, their Foie Gras never fails me. So sumptuous And mouth watering. Their clam chowder is perfect, so tasty and not too salty. I had their Ling cod cioppino which was good but a little bit salty for my taste. My husband had the lamb shank as always, but this time the lamb was a bit dry in the inside. I have noticed too that our waiter was not very attentive to us. Our water glasses are almost always empty. We’ve had to ask him to top it up at least 2-3 times.
Over all, I still recommend this restaurant.
The food was absolutely sensational, I’ve been savouring the exceptional flavours of the beef carpaccio and sablefish I had there for last couple of days. They boast a finely curated wine list and well chosen beers for those who enjoy a malty aperitif. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and extremely accommodating. I only wish we had room for dessert and cocktails as they both looked great.
great fresh seafood, reasonably priced considering the quality of service and food.
Engaging staff and wonderfully inventive food!
The food was the standing-out element. Kudos to the chef sablefish dish. The service too. The dinner ambience was great.
We celebrated our 15 year anniversary and it was definitely a place where we felt celebrated, satisfied, inspired and restful - a quiet and delicious break from not celebrating much of anything because of Covid. We will be back.
We had our Anniversary at this restaurant. From appetizers to dessert was first rate. I appreciate the good service they provided. I would highly recommend Boulevard!!
Went for our 34th wedding anniversary, was a lovely evening , great personal service and delightful food!
We were extremely happy with our dining experience. The service was impeccable. Our server was 'there for us' buy, not THERE. He was very knowledgeable about the wines/beer and our food choices as well. The good was what I call...'murmuring food'. By that I mean; one let's out a little murmur of pleasure with each bite. Outstanding experience. We decided on a whim to try this resaurant and we were rewarded for our adventure. Can't wait to try more of the menu. We have already recommended it to our friends and family.
Main course took about an hour to come. When it arrived it was surprisingly small, so the time delay didn't make much sense. Food tasted great though.
We had a fabulous evening at Boulevard. Our server was lovely and paid the exact amount of attention to us. COVID restrictions were strictly followed, yet the feeling in the room was energetic and lively. Excellent food. I highly recommend Boulevard for anyone who is a foody and appreciates true goodness.
We recommend the fixed price menu as a great experience and way to taste lots of what Boulevard has to offer.
My family had an exceptional dining experience on Saturday night. Everything went really well from service to food and price. We would definitely return.
Food was very good especially when Happy Hour prices were in effect.
The food and service were excellent. The wine pairing complimented the food very well. Our server was very friendly and we had an interesting conversation about wine as he was also a sommelier.
Fantastic food and wine pairings to go with. Service was spot on all night long. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an elevated dining experience in Vancouver.
Incredible service and the most delicious wagyu i have ever had. I would highly recommend for someone looking to have a special dinner. Great wine selection, good seafood choices and an overall good dining experience!
The restaurant environment is very good, dishes are very designed, the taste is super delicious!! Makes me linger!The service is great!!I will definitely come again!!
A couple of hiccups made the experience feel a little rushed and without some of the attention to detail you might expect. For example, it is nice to have the wait staff speak to what is on your plate as it is served and, as we went for the wine pairing, perhaps to explain the choice of wine. Could be that my expectations are too high. The meal was generally good particularly the curried cauliflower and the apricot mouse dessert, though the aforementioned wine pairing didn't always work, in our view.
