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.

My friends and I went for a special ending to our trip to Montreal. We were seated outside; since the temperature had dropped, they had installed plastic "walls" and put on some of the heaters, so it was plenty warm. We enjoyed looking at the garden and seeing the big ducks. Very good service. As to food: They brought out little puff pastries that were exceptional. The oysters, ceviche, and steaks were great. The focaccia was really, really good. The corn veloute was ok, but I would probably not get it again. Although we were all full, we split a chocolate cake, which was really tasty. Then they brought out a tray of small bon bons, which we forced ourselves to eat even though we were full, and they were awesome. We also enjoyed our cocktails and wine. We are really glad we went and will definitely go again the next time we are in Montreal.

I have dined out a lot, and in a lot of different cities.

Maison Boulud is on of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable.
We sat at a table on the edge of the garden which is an experience like none other.

It is really hard to describe just how amazing this experience was.

I would highly recommended this to anyone looking for excellent food, service and ambiance.

Marie-Christine is one of the best waitresses I’ve had. She made the experience much better than I expected service could be. This alone is the reason why I will return.

The food was good. The stone crab and sea urchin appetizer was fresh and well balanced although the sauce that remained was a little bit too sweet - almost like an orange jelly spread.

The 60-day aged beef chop did not have the intensity of flavour you would expect from something aged for that long. The marbling was not the best as there were pockets of fat that were inedible (unless you like chewing on fat). We also received the beef rare instead of medium rare so there could be some improvements there. The wild mushrooms and cumin carrot sides were excellent.

There will be a second visit as the restaurant has a lot to offer. Seafood is probably a better choice. More to try for next time.

I don’t often give 5 stars, but Maison Boulud has consistently been the exception. Exceptional service (Antonin is literally the best waiter I’ve ever met, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone better), outstanding food, and the ambiance is perfect. I understand it’s not an every day outing for most people, but if you can do it, it is well worth the money.

Having grown up with traditional Mediterranean food that mom would cook, eating at Maison Boloud was about the same experience, with a little twist or touch as they say. The service was very good and ambiance friendly. I found they filled their specialty cocktail drinks with ice(not necessary as one or two ice cube would do the job), giving you very little liquid for the money you pay. The fried artichokes entree dish was small as compared to what you would get in a good restaurant in Spain; not as tasty, and overpriced for what you got. The desserts were original and very good.

As part of a weekend of dining at some of the finest restaurants in Montreal, including Toque and Europea, we visited Maison Boulud. We had eaten at Daniel in New York City, and thought it was outstanding, so we had high expectations for Maison Boulud in Montreal. We were disappointed. The two meals we had did not live up to the hype -- there seemed to be minimal creativity or originality, no spark or inventiveness in the kitchen , sauces were routine, the food preparation and presentation ordinary, except for the excellent desserts -- the pastry chef gets 5 stars. The sommelier was also helpful. The service overall was good, despite a long delay between the appetizers and the main courses, which our server explained was caused by a "back up" in the kitchen. To be blunt: the sense we had was that this is a restaurant trading on its founder's good name, but lulled into near-mediocrity by the reliable flow of customers provided by the Ritz Carlton.

We loved this restaurant last summer. This year, we still loved the creativity of the appetizers: the smoked salmon and tuna tartare were amazing and beautifully presented. However, the main courses the frittata, the rigatoni and the croissant sandwich were mundane. The desserts were also fine. We did not try the one that used red cabbage although it sounded very interesting. The service and ambiance were impeccable as usual.

Everything was very good but way over priced. At that price level the food should have knocked our socks off but didn’t. My wife said the steaks at capital grille are better at a lower price. Lee cafe de Paris which it replaced was better and cheaper.

Food was fabulous, especially the lobster gnocchi which was out of this world. Service impeccable and setting lovely as we sat out on the terrace. The only negatives would be the cost of the wine which was out of proportion with what you would pay for wine in comparable restaurants. We also found that the time spent waiting between courses was a bit long. Other than that, a great place for special occasion dinners.

Loved the food selection. Reservation through OpenTable was easy, and I managed to change the time easily. Tables can be spaced a bit more to allow for privacy in conversations. We hope reservations can have options for table or seating choices. Had a great time with my daughter on my last evening,

Excellent restaurant. But: In comparison with Boulud restaurants in New York and Boston, and with other restaurants in the same class, the food seemed less extraordinary. As examples, my duck dish was excellent, but not as good as the duck I had two weeks earlier at The Pines in Hanover NH. My wife reports that her gazpacho was good but nothing special. The dessert was good but nowhere near the excellence of the givree in NY (the best dessert in the world!).

Everything else about the restaurant was truly excellent. Servers were extremely helpful but not overbearing. We had four different glasses of wine, and the server helped us choose each one.
