    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.

    Always an outstanding meal. The oysters were truly excellent (from PEI) and some new additions to the menu are welcome. The grilled cheese sandwich is delicious, for example. The beet salad was lovely. We had a perfect meal with attentive, kind and personalized service. Best restaurant in Montreal.

    For a restaurant of this supposed quality and price this very much substandard. Tables are like cafeteria stule, with oval plastic placemats of McDonald's style. The truffle risotto without imagination (I just came from italy and had better ones in any trattoria; the "lobster" salad was 3 less then 1 inch x 1/4 inch pieces of lobster with a green salad The poor people serving there did their best to make us feel good, but really A shame.

    This place was horrific. Live in nyc and have been to many boulud spots - the food was legit horrific, inedible and even the plating was unappealing. My cod was cut in the shape of a banana and bathed in white and black striped sauce, inedibly overcooked. Prices were out of control high, $30 for a glass of wine?! $12 for a coffee? I would STRONGLY recommend going elsewhere

    I will never return! I did the 8 course tasting menu. They had an unusually small collection of wines for a French restaurant. We had to wait so incredibly long between courses. Some people might be okay with the really long wait but I think any server would be able to tell that we were not those people. The wait would've been worth it if the food was good. I can say that all 8 courses were bad. They all had strange flavours that were not well put together. One of my appetizers genuinely tasted like it was a spoonful of salt. I had an absolutely terrible experience. I rate it -1/10 and will never recommend. Definitely not worth the 300 per person tab.
