    It was my first experience at Maison Boulud, therefore i had very high expectations. I opted for the tasting menu and I was a little disappointed, the food lacked season, something simple as salt and pepper. It is not what you expect when you’re paying the big $$$. The issue with these fancy restaurants, is that they try to reinvent the food scene and their choices of food pairing doesn’t always work. I had a carrot potage with pieces of grapefruit! Like why would you think these 2 ingredients may work well together?? They dont!

    We have enjoyed many spectacular and flawless dinners at Daniel Boulud's restaurants, in New York several times to Daniel, his Cafe Boulud NYC , Bar Boulud NYC and many times in Toronto at the Four Seasons' Cafe Boulud. Every meal at all those restaurants were impeccable, perfection. Unfortunately last night's dinner was not the same standard at all. The service was very good but the food was mediocre at best. It was very disappointing as we had invited our adult son and his partner with great expectations. My only thought was maybe it's no longer owned by Daniel Boulud. He would not have approved of the meal.

    We love coming here. The tasting menu is fun. The wine pairing - lovely. Everyone who helped serve - the waiters/waitresses, the sommelier, the host, and anyone we encountered was down to earth and professional. We usually make it down 2 or 3x a year - and it's rewarding, fun, and just a great culinary journey. Thank you to all that made our evening super pleasant. We all loved it.

    Everything was basically excellent. My only negative comment is that my entree was Luke warm. I didn’t want to sent it back so as not to detract from my wife’s enjoyment of her meal. Expediting the food when it is hot is essential as food Tates much better hot. Shouldn’t be an issue at an experienced Restraunt like Boulud. Otherwise a lovely evening.

    I want to thank the entire staff of Maison Boulud for making my birthday a great experience this year. I owe them, especially the hostess a sincere apology for giving them a hard time earlier that day for not having my favorite, seared foie gras. About 30 minutes before my reservation, the Maitre D called me to give me the great news that they found me the foie gras from another place. This is the outstanding service that is not found anymore. I am deeply grateful for this over-the-top services, as it made my birthday special. I want to THANK my food servers, the chefs, the hostess and Maitre D for a memorable night.

    Had a very good experience at Maison Bouloud. The ambience was pretty perfect and very relaxing. The noise level was just right. The food was very good and we found little to criticize. My partner mentioned that her cauliflower soup was a bit too rich, and I had the burger which was good but not the best burger I’ve had. The meat was a bit dry and the patty was small for the size of the buns. The herring tartine was excellent and both dessert dishes were had were excellent. I also had a Komodo cocktail, which was very refreshing. The service was exceptional and all the staff made us feel very welcome.

    Nous nous faisions une fête de manger chez Boulud pour souligner notre anniversaire. Quelle déception! Le menu dégustation est quelconque et le décor est sans intérêt . Heureusement, le service est impeccable et la sommelière qui nous a conseillés est irréprochable. Mais que vaut un restaurant quand la cuisson du poisson et de la viande laissent tant à désirer? Pas grand chose! Une première et une dernière visite.

    La qualité du service est exceptionnelle. Je ne vois pas ça ailleurs. Les mets, classiques, sont néanmoins originaux et présentés et servis avec élégance. Le seul hic au tableau est le prix des vins, exorbitant, il faut le dire. Pas un verre de vin à moins de 23 dollars, c’est trop. Je connais plusieurs vins qui sont très bien et qui pourraient être offerts pour moins cher. Et pourquoi la Maison Boulud n’aurait-elle pas un vin maison à prix abordable?

    Not only was this not a memorable meal, but a truly disappointing experience from start to finish: 1) No option to join the tasting menu as a vegetarian, and as a result everyone else at the table was locked out of doing the tasting menu. Made our vegetarian guest feel extremely guilty and uncomfortable. 2) Because we couldn’t do a tasting menu, we were also prohibited from a wine tasting option. 3) Service was extremely slow - it took an hour to get our first soup course. 4) Dishes lacked flavor / creativity - we came for the experience to taste innovative dishes and found each course to be predictable and just…fine. Unanimously we all decided to bail before dessert because we did not want to continue the experience. As someone who always held Daniel Boulud in high regard, this makes me not want to visit a Boulud restaurant ever again. On the bright side, the sommelier was great.

    We enjoy coming to MB for brunch since it’s a place where we got married. Unfortunately, this visit did not impress — despite specifically stating twice not to add a particular ingredient, the meal arrived with that ingredient in the meal. When the food was replaced, it came back with that ingredient in the main meal.

    The dining experience is always very pleasant, especially at the bar. The bartenders are excellent, friendly, and very attentive. The food is always a hit or miss. I sat with my friend at the bar for lunch. I had specifically asked and was very much assured that I could have the two corner seats by the fireplace. I even called the night before and this was confirmed. Upon arrival, a man was sitting in one of the seats in the corner at the bar near the fireplace. The woman who took me to my seat said "I know, but the man has been there for quite a while" and took me to the other corner. Yes, it was a corner seat (easier to talk with a friend), but I don't understand when the maitre d' specifically said I had the one near the fireplace that this would not be honoured. I was not impressed. I had the minestrone soup and six oysters, a glass of Chablis and a tea. My friend had six oysters, a diet coke, and tea. The soup was OK, but I wouldn't order it again because the broth was really tasteless. The six oysters were fresh but exceedingly small for $30. The wine was lovely (Chablis) and so it should have been at $36 a glass. I get it that this is Boloud and pricey, and I don't mind paying, but the food should be great--for example at Milos. One pays but the quality is amazing. I certainly would not trade the oysters that I have regularly at the Fairmont for these. I will be back because I like the ambiance, but it won't be for a while.
