Maison Boulud Montréal offers the cuisine of a chef steeped in French tradition, yet inspired by decades spent cooking in New York City.
Daniel Boulud's menu is driven by the seasons and bounty of Québec's local purveyors. The result: refined yet soulful contemporary French food, prepared here by Executive Chef Riccardo Bertolino.
While situated in the Ritz-Carlton Montreal, the restaurant, its bar & lounge and two private dining rooms have a vibrant identity all their own. Maison Boulud enjoys a view over the historic hotel garden and year round glass enclosed winter garden. Daniel Boulud's welcoming spirit, the casually elegant tone and glimpses of a partly open kitchen keep the focus on the cuisine, making this a daily gathering place for wonderful food.

Private Dining

Private dining room for up to 24 guests and one semi-private dining room for up to 7 guests. Personalized menus with local and seasonal products.

This is a restaurant that is relying on a celebrity chef name to get reservations but do not deliver. The chef is never there and the staff is lost with out him. Our meal was eventually given to us free because it was so bad. I do not recommend this place. We were hotel guest at the ritz.

Food and service were excellent. The garden was not yet as beautiful as it can be, probably due to the recent weather. And where were the ducks? Otherwise excellent and who needs ducks at dinner except on the plate?

Our meal was spoiled by the restaurant seating obnoxious guests next to us (an f-bomb dropping tattooed trio of idiots). So we were forced to move tables. A good restaurant would have seated them in the bar area, or away from polite diners, as they were underdressed and clearly unsophisticated. A good restaurant also wouldn’t tolerate their behavior. If you’re looking for fine dining, Boulud might disappoint.

When we first came in, we were greeted and told to wait about 5 minutes as they were just setting up the tables. They open for brunch at 12 noon. As other guests arrived, they immediately started taking them to their tables. After about the 3 table being seated, we reminded them that we had a reservation at 12. The hostess acknowledged us but did not do anything. After about the 7th guest being seated, my friend was getting frustrated, and asked when we would be seated, as all of these guest were coming after us and being seated before us. Finally they seated us. We were seated in the terrace, which was beautiful. Great atmosphere for a nice saturday brunch. The food was okay, I had an octopus starter, and a egg croissant sandwich. There was nothing special about the octopus, it was meh. I asked for no ham on the croissant, and they put no cheese, no egg, it was literally the stems of a green veggie and a croissant. When he served it, I told him I only asked for no ham, and there was nothing in the sandwich. He said okay and instead of taking the plate and fixing the sandwich, he brought me a poached egg about 10 mins later. 65 after tax and gratuity, not worth it, tons of nicer places in Montreal you can go to.

Food was good but service didn’t meet the expectations I had from a Boulud/Ritz Carlton restaurant. Server was nice but forgot details (eg: table was wobbly. She was supposed to take care of it, but we had to flag a colleague of her when we got our main meal cuz it still hadn’t been fixed) and drinks rarely always came at least 5min after we got the food. Will go back to the Ritz for tea, but not for a meal

We had a shockingly bad brunch last weekend. It was so bad that we returned to mention it to the restaurant, just to let them know that it was not up to the standard expected. Our name was taken so the manager could contact us. We received no phone call. We were embarrassed to have chosen Maison Boulud as a special spot to bring a guest from out of town. How can a Bolud restaurant serve 2 cold poached eggs rolling around on a dirty plate with a few greasy potatoes thrown beside them and slices of unripe tomatoes? Only 2 of 6 plates should have left the kitchen. Service was negligent at best. In case you are wondering, brunch was over $200 for 6 guests.

The fact that the place is in the Ritz Carlton says it all. It’s expensive, overpriced even, but you should know that going in. We did the 8 course tasting menu and it was phenomenal. Wine selection is vast, but significantly more expensive than other restaurants of a similar caliber. I probably won’t go a second time, but everything about the experience was incredible.

The food and service were incredible. We were sat on a patio next to a hotel bar happy hour that wa incredibly loud, but we just tuned it out. The sommelier seemed disappointed that we had preselected a wine, but got over it when we asked him about sherries...though he admitted he didn’t care for them.

I ordered the 3 course meal for the lunch. The salad was just so-so considering it's a 5-star hotel. The main course (chicken) was nice and the dessert was great. But I found other better restaurants in Montreal. I went to Europe quite often and eating good food growing up, so I always find food in Canada is just fine. Please forgive me.

We thought we had saved the best for last but were disappointed in the food. The soup was more like a consommé with a few mushrooms thrown in, the duck was drowning in sauce, and the lamb was 1/3 of a rack. The only good part were the madelines for dessert that were light and fluffy.

Top of the line Franco-European restaurant adjacent to the Ritz Carlton (Spoiler alert: Check your credit card balance prior to booking). Opted for the seven course tasting menu, superb presentations and equally delicious and varied in content. Do not expect "American" size portions, but no worries by course seven you should be satisfied. Excellent wine list, but not inexpensive choices except by the glass. Service was efficient and non-intrusive. Hugo...the Sommelier gets top marks for recommendations, knowledge and sense of humor. Plan on an evening out...2.5 + hours of dining. This venue is for special occasions and quiet conversation with your dinner companion (Romantic or otherwise). In a word, "Highly recommended."
