    The food was not at the standards that it usually is...the guests ordered the burger medium and it was burnt...we had to send it back....the waiters brought the food but did not ask any questions and placed the wrong orders in front of the people (given that they all odered burgers...some well done some no cheese...the waiters should have asked who had what avoiding any confusion)

    The perfect experience. They treated our 5 and 3 year olds like regular customers, and the menu was perfect a family of four. The perfect way to celebrate our first family trip to Montreal! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a perfect lunch or dinner.

    Went many times to Maison Bolud and always I was satisfied. Last night It was very different. Appetizer an ok foie gras; the almond bread was hard like a rock. Asked for a glass of wine and got 1 ounce on my glass. Now I ordered the lamb that was 2 small square pieces of 2 cm each with 10 beans and a black sauce. A complete disaster the sauce didn’t have any flavour and the beans were sour and not a good combination with the lamb. But you cannot charge $62 and give 2 pieces of 5 grams each of lamb !!!! My wife got the sweetbreads that were ok but also not much flavour, accompanied with a few butter beans that tasted like water only. Dessert was excellent and service also great; 0 complaint on that but it felt like I throwed $500 to the garbage. Not sure if there is a new chef but won’t go there anymore.

    I've been to Maison Boulud quite a few times this year, and I must say that the quality of the food, although good, has gone down a little. We had the 3-course brunch for 4 people. We had ordered an extra plate of pasta to share. Firstly, they would not split the pasta which was weird. Secondly, the price for the pasta (we should have asked for the price before, but since this was a birthday brunch, we did not), was $46! It was salty and not enough to share, which our server mentioned that it would be more than enough when we first asked. Nice place, food decent, very friendly servers, but as I mentioned before, quality of food has gone down a little.

    I always love to go back to Maison Boulud! I am never disappointed and the service is so polished. Last night I had the best lamb of my life! We were also introduced to a German pinot type wine, which was delicious. It would never have occurred to us to order a German wine, but it was lovely!

    The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. The garden is so serene, you forget you’re in the city, especially with the cute white ducks walking around or relaxing in the pond. Really enjoyed our romantic lunch as we were celebrating our anniversary. Very kind of them to offered us mini madeleines for our wedding anniversary. Definitely will return.

    Regrettably not the same level of service I had experienced on a prior visit. My son and I were in town for a meeting at McGill and opted for a Tuesday morning for breakfast at Boulud. The dining room was quiet both inside and outdoors, the latter being where we elected to eat. Perhaps our server was new, but I received Eggs Benedict with salmon instead of the Canadian Bacon I had requested. It was returned and replaced , by which time my son had started his meal so as he could enjoy while warm. One side of his Croque Monsieur was visibly over-grilled. The toast was almost black on the side placed against the plate. For my meal, the accompanying potatoes were visually unpleasant. The colour and texture was poor and the flavour was bland. While my son received the Smoothie of the Day shortly after ordered, my Mimosa failed to arrive, and so I had to flag down staff to inquire. When presented with the bill- I had been billed for two Eggs Benedict’s as well as my sons Croque Monsieur. Again I had to flag down a server for a correction. Overall a disappointing meal, given our past experience. I am willing to try again when next in Montreal, and hope that service standards will have improved by then.

    Everything about this restaurant was amazing, the staff was so attentive, all of them from the minute we arrived wished us a happy anniversary. I’ve never been to a restaurant and experienced anything like this. The food was incredible and plated with elegance. Extra bonus was watching the ducks in the garden duck pond. Number 1 on my fine dining restaurant now.

    Ambiance was cute. Food not the best. $70 dollar truffle pasta was very bland. Waiter recommended it, probably because it was the most expensive dish on lunch menu. I wish I would have gotten something else. Next time!

    Very pleasant, nice 0800 am in morning on a Wednesday. Not overly special; no indication of hostess seeing any note of a Wedding anniversary. Just a regular greeting. Place is very nice space, chairs were comfy but weirdly large and impossible to move into table (which was oversized as well) without help. Food was spot on good and nicely presented. 100$ for breakfast for 2.
