Everything from the view onto the garden, to the food and the more than excellent service, made this a wonderful brunch. Oh and let’s not forget the delicious bread and warm madeleines!

C’ est presque parfait dans l’ensemble. Cependant il y a eu une confusion de la part des serveurs. Les entrées ne sont pas servies aux bonnes personnes, c,était tout mélangé. Mais ils sont tout fait pour se rattraper après avec les autres plats qui ont suivi . L’ erreur est humain ! Et la sauce du filet de bœuf de l’île du prince Edward était trop salée. Il y a aussi la ratatouille du thon qui était froid .
La rapidité des services est impecable. Le personnel est très gentil et courtois. Les madeleines en cadeau de fête de la part du chef est très apprécié.
On retournera certainement

Nous avons trouvé que les plats, bien que bons, manquaient de saveur, de créativité et d'originalité. Nous attendions beaucoup plus d'un restaurant de la réputation de Maison Boulud. Les viandes étaient très tendres, mais où étaient ces éléments qui nous indiquent qu'un chef a créé le plat et non seulement un très bon cuisinier? Montréal est remplie de restaurants où la créativité est à l'honneur, et ce, pour une fraction du prix que nous avons payé pour notre soirée. Nous en avons visité plusieurs au fil du temps. Cependant, nous voulons souligner que le service a été impeccable. Tout le monde a été d'une gentillesse et d'une attention remarquables.

I had a wonderful lunch (my first visit) at Maison Boulud. The service was prompt and very attentive (by several staff). My waiter (Thomas) was most helpful in helping me choose the appropriate wine with the delicious juicy house burger. The Niçoise salad with quail eggs was a delicious start to the meal. I was seated in the beautiful garden. Lovely ambiance. I finished the meal with a trio of sorbets and a mint and vervain tea. I felt pampered. I shall return soon!!

Je recommande ce restaurant de très haute qualité. La nourriture est excellente et le service très courtois. J’y vais quelques fois par année et je n’ai jamais été déçue. C’est certain que ce n’est pas donné mais je préfère aller moins souvent dans ces grands restos, mais de vraiment apprécier quand j’y vais. Merci de l’excellent service à notre serveur Guillaume qui malgré le manque de personnel a fait en sorte que mes amies et moi soyons tout à fait satisfaites. Merci et à la prochaine fois

Madison Boulud seemed to be one of the top choices in Montreal. Google searches and open table would tell you as much. However, when it comes to Montreal there are so much more that is hidden from the immediate search. Madison Boulud, although it had it’s charm, was mediocre at best. When we arrived we were seated, not in the picturesque terrace, but on some sub par conference room chairs underneath a cliche wedding tent canopy and strung out greenery. When I sat down I had a fan blowing right in my face, and the picturesque terrace turned out to be a make shift tent with a giant fire extinguisher next to our table. The waiter was courteous and kind, he brought us our drinks promptly, then we waited 50 minutes before anyone came around to take our food order. The food was quick after the wait to order, and as expected for a resto of this class, but it was nothing special. For an honest review… all sections are out of 5…

Service: 3( Due to timelines and other reasons, see below)
Seating:1 (unacceptable to promote cushioned garden seating and put us on conference room chairs. Two other groups asked to be moved)
Food: 4 (very tasty, the lamb was a bit tough and gamie)
Ambiance: 2.5 (lovely garden, but a failure compared to other options in Montreal, i.e Jardin Nelson. )
Price: 3: average for quality and quantity.
Drinks: 5 - well made. Best part of the meal.

Other notes:
When I told them the seating was uncomfortable, we were given very dry tiny pastries. It actually made the occasion worse because they were so gross!

Unfortunately, the service was tone deaf and robotic.

Final review: overpriced and over promised because of it’s connection to the Ritz, find yourself somewhere else to experience true Montreal quality.
