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

    Table and one of the guest chairs in particular was directly beside a busy serving station. We had specified that the dinner was celebrating a birthday on the reservation but no acknowledgment of that. Have had other very good experiences at the restaurant.

    The service and menu options are absolutely amazing. I ordered the halibut and my husband ordered the lobster tagliatelle. Both were amazing. My only criticism would be that if you are seated in the section that is right above the DBar be prepared for loud conversations from down below. This was not conducive for a quiet date night. Otherwise, just a top shelf dining experience.

    very disappointed. Not really the french bistro cuisine I had imagined. Sent my food back to the kitchen. Scallops need to be seared and then cooked at least 2 minutes per side, they were jiggly and not even warm, tasted like sushi. very fishy smelling which lead me to believe they were not fresh. would never go back. Also crazy expensive, when you cannot get a glass of wine below $22.00 dollars for 5 ounces... no value there at all...

    I’m always happy to pay the price (regardless of expense) of eating out when food is satisfying, creative, and more delicious than I could prepare at home. Boulud didn’t measure up. It didn’t hit the right notes for creativity or yumminess, it wasn’t adequately satisfying and it left me disappointed all around. I left feeling, ‘that was a waste of money’. Not anxious to go back…

    Was disappointed that juice n coffee are not included. We have been here for brunch for past few years and really enjoyed it but now the menu changed, will think twice or even triple before coming back again. Will definitely look for elsewhere if they have something similar or even better.

    I was celebrating my birthday and the staff was exceptional. Even when my steak was over cooked the quickly took my dish and my friend’s dish back to the kitchen and replaced both shortly. They even compensated our desserts. They truly treat their customers like honoured guests. I will continually return to this restaurant 😊

    I had brunch with my mom and aunts, and we all had a lovely time. You could opt for a two or three course brunch, with both savory and sweet selections to accommodate any taste. The service was phenomenal, and the ambiance was cozy and more on the quiet side. I started with a fruit plate and had lemon ricotta pancakes (3) for my main. The fruit was fresh, and the pancakes were delicious. I am looking forward to going back with my fiancé.
