Café Boulud is Chef Daniel Boulud’s reimagined French Brasserie located in the Four Seasons Hotel in Yorkville, Toronto. The restaurant serves a seasonally changing menu rooted in French tradition, highlighting both bistro classics and contemporary dishes inspired by Chef Daniel’s family meals in Lyon. A gleaming rotisserie is used to slow-roast chicken à la broche, whole lobster, and even rum-scented pineapple. We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, and offer brunch on Sundays. Designed by Martin Brudnizki of London. The vintage-inspired ambiance is highlighted by a comfortable lounge and wraparound banquettes, a dining counter, and a semi-private room that accommodates up to eight guests. The restaurant has received several accolades since its renovation including Best Restaurant in Canada at the Notable Awards and Canada's Hundred Best Restaurants. @CafeBouludTO #CafeBoulud

Very good meal. Fresh bread and room temperature butter were a perfect way to start the repast. Mousse de foie gras was silky and savoury. The rotisserie chicken was plump and juicy. The calvados soufflée ended a very agreeable meal.

The welcome was very polished and sincere. Good suggestions for the meal as well as valuable assistance from the server and sommelier to help me choose good wines to complement the terrine and the lobster.

It's a very high-end restaurant, and I love it. My only concern is that the waiter just never looked our way. I feel like I spent half the time trying to get his attention. He'd walk right by and not give the subtle eye contact check-in of someone on their game.

My server was very knowledgeable with wine and food. I had very satisfying meal. I had Huitres (served with 3 west coast and 3 east coast oysters) for appetizer. At first I wanted to get Boulud's French Onion Soup since it was rainy the day of my visit, but my server recommended Huitres because I was getting Tagliatelle de Homard (squid ink pasta with lobster in anchovy cream sauce). This pasta also went very well with new white wine called Vouvray. I would visit more if I'm near this location... :)

The food grade was much more “ liver” tasting than usual. Best salad was quite good. The sole was overwhelmed by the sauce and was disappointing. The seared tuna was quite good. Deserts were great. The grapefruit cervice was beautiful
The bus boy needed Prozac.. he could not have been more disinterested or bored. Waitress was great. Ambience very nice. Perhaps a bad night since we have had better dinners there previously .. if this were our only experience, we would not go back,but will give the benefit of the doub

It was our younger daughters first birthday and we had the most incredible sever. She was so wonderful with both kids and even brought a little candle out with a pastry. I never write reviews but this was such a fantastic experience I was over the moon. Such a great vibe and excellent all around. Thank you!!

Excellent knowledgable wine pairing with sommelier Julie. Attentive professional service.
The lobster beet first course tasty and well balanced
The venaison in cocoa nib crust was tender and delicious.
Unusual choices worth choosing to spend this evening here!

As always, the food, wine and service were outstanding. We ordered from the "Winterliscious" menu and found it to be great tasting and great value. Our waiter "Camillo" (?) was outstanding and tended to our every need. As I said, great service.

I liked the food so much during Winterlicious dinner with a friend, that I returned with my husband and tried other dishes. The service and drinks (I had the non-alcoholic Blackstreet's Black, and my husband had martinis) were so good. The food was also delicious - mains were short ribs, fish and potato gnocchi. The mushroom veloute (soup) as a starter was creamy and rich but not so filling, which is good for the food that came afterwards. I would definitely return!

It is a cafe so busy with business lunchers. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. They checked our coats and accommodated our early arrival. The gold leaf on the desert made it extra decadent!
