Surprisely this restaurant is affordable in consideration of the excellence of the food and service. Not that it is cheap- $$$$ - but compare to other restaurant with similar criterias - it is totally justified - moreover- a discret and efficient service- not too much - simple but so professional - a gem

An enchanting evening
The atmosphere was perfect, the surrounding was sublime, the service was hors pair and the food was divine. This was one of my best for life.

The presentation of the food is exquisite ! The recent renovations make this restaurant an absolute place to see due to its warm ambiance. With the endless wine list to choose from, a well-dressed romantic dinner will be unforgettable. A must !

One of the best meals I have ever had. We chose the menu dégustation of five courses which included two "amuse bouches". The only dish that stood out as being less than the others was the squid-ink pasta with seafood. However, even that was an item that, if I had cooked and served myself at home, I would have been beyond delighted to have made.
Service was professional and friendly.
I will go back when my budget permits; a sublime dining experience.

I was very impressed. Amazing service and great food. Loved the ambiance

This is a fine restaurant
My wife and I enjoyed our meal immensely. I had the lobster salad, and it was superb. My wife had the beet salad, which she always orders, She said it was the best one she has ever been served.
The wine list at the restaurant is quite extensive but reasonably priced.
The service is excellent and the ambiance what you would expect.
Overall, this is a first-rate restaurant, and I recommend it highly.

Another good table for Montreal
This was our first experience at this location and we were not disappointed.
Service was excellent , food was superb and the ratio of quality versus price was reasonable.
To reserve a table on the terrace it is suggested to call at least two days ahead.

My girlfriend chose this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We were presented with a foie gras appetizer that we did not order but were allowed to have a no charge. They di end up bringing us the scallop entree that we had ordered. Vey nice surroundings and we plan on going back to dine at the outside terrace next time
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Dining Experience
Food was excellent and the service is impecable; I tried the Foie Gras as an entree and the main course was the duo filet mignon and beef ribs which was cooked to perfection and tender as can be. I would go back any time!

Classic, delicious, lovely
Ordered the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was delicious. I think I could have ordered anything on the menu and been more than pleased. The black linguine was especially memorable. The wines chosen complimented the palette extremely well, and they weren't wines I would have chosen alone. It's a fit for all, not too noisy, not really funky or eccentric just elegant and classy.

Dining on the veranda or outside
Dining on the veranda or outside is a must in the summertime!

Always a pleasure
We have dined at Maison Boulud many times in the last year and each time was a great experience. The white wine wine list is better than anywhere in town. The "lasagnette de homard" is always super delicious.
Great service, very nice decor and ambiance.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best food ever
I can't recall a better meal! Plus attentive service and a lovely atmosphere
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, fantastic service and amazing wine list.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a very pleasant evening at Maison Boulud. The service was outstanding and the food very good. The 5 course menu was well balanced and the portion size perfect.
Isabelle, the somelier presented every wine with grace and knowledge. Would go back anytime. The price is not as high as one would expect.at such a place.

Had the lunch tablehote was good for 30$. The soup of the day was a corn and rock shrimp soup. I was disappointed because I didn't realize it was a cold soup. Not a fan. Then had the anololis with braised meat inside. That was very good. Overall I didn't find it outstanding or excellent as the portion for the main dish was rather small considering I had only eaten half of my soup, I left a bit hungry.

Nous avons bien aimé notre expérience surtout pour la cuisine, le choix de vins et le service. L'ambiance on a vu mieux et ne connaissant pas le restaurant, c'était notre 1ère fois, on ne nous a pas présenté un choix de table. La terrasse on l'a découverte une fois assis à notre table. Les prix sont très élevés surtout pour le vin et champagne.

Finally a quiet place to lunch!
Finally a quiet place to lunch! Excellent food and service! The wine was a bit expensive by the glass but the food excellent.

We had the table behind glass
We had the table behind glass doors for a celebration for 6. Food was wonderful. Service started slow but improved during the meal. Presentation on all dishes was beautiful. Expensive but well worth it.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Maison Boulud- not to be missed
Other than the great service and staff, the food is exquisite. I have tried the breakfast, brunch and dinner and my taste buds have been blown away every time.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
And the second time was much better
It's funny how a restaurant can turn it around almost all the way. This time the service was good, if a little unpolished for such an environment -- but the food was much better. It is fitting for a special occasion, but I would not call it romantic. I booked this for our wedding anniversary (married at the RC in 2006) and La Maison was especially good last night.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to lunch at Maison Boulud at the Ritz Carlton Montreal. I read an article in the Montreal Gazette Online Edition some mohths back about Montreal's Best Burgers and we decided to try one. Burger was delicious, as were the Fries, the service was exceptional, the Ritz Carlton is in a class by itself, a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Amazing food- great atmosphere
Amazing food- great atmosphere a must if visiting Montreal!!!

The food was of the highest quality, served with outstanding attention to detail. I would go back in a heartbeat.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for lunch on a Saturday. It was not busy (so no need for reservations). Had the 3-course lunch. The food was very good (portions small...but that was expected). I had the salad, ravioli and bluberry tart. My friend had the soup, hangar steak and the tart as well. He wasn't too keen on the soup (didn't seem to like the foam on top), but the steak was cooked perfectly. I didn't leave full nor hungry....though I don't usually eat much. I was surprised at the $17 for 2 bottles for Eska Water. Probably would have only ordered 1 since we hardly made a dent on the second bottle. Service was perfect. I never needed to ask for anything...they knew to bring it before I needed to ask.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service! Whatever you do, dont miss the fresh-baked madeleines! Divine.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Out of this world!!!
I am so happy we chose Maison Boulud for dinner on our last night in Montreal. Really, there are just three letters to sum up our experience, which is OMG. The food, the service, the presentation, the atmosphere, all are above and beyond. Stand outs for apps was the Raviolo and Terrie de Fois Gras, which just exploded with flavour and so well executed. For mains, we tremendously enjoyed the Veau de Leau with the crispiest Sweet Breads ever and the Duo de Boeuf, which was melt in your mouth deliciousness. Knowing how great the desserts are, we opted for three: A scoop of the Blueberry Lavender Sorbet (wow!), fresh Madeleines (more wow!!!) and the special of the night which was Pears and Chocolates. This place just cannot be missed!!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a memorable time we had! Great food, amazing service and beatiful settings.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
À ce que je sache, Maison
À ce que je sache, Maison Boulud est un restaurant «français». J'aimerais qu'on m'explique pourquoi toutes vos communications écrites se font en ANGLAIS ??? Il y a là un réel problème, me semble-t-il. Nous sommes au Québec. Je vous souhaite qu'aucun journaliste ne soit mis au courant de cette réalité vraiment surprenante.
J'attends vos commentaires,
Merci de votre attention.
N.B. J'ai une autre réservation pour le 6 octobre. D'ici là, j'espère avoir reçu vos commentaires...en français.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and services are consistently top notched. Feel very at home with friendly staff.
Lots of attention paid to the freshness of ingredients used and the plating is always well presented.
Their desserts are absolutely devine The wine list is quite sufficient, though a little pricey. Finally, they make very good coffee

Tops in Upscale Dining
This was perhaps our 4th time dining at Maison Boulud, and the experience was consistent with the past: perhaps the most unobtrusively superb service in Montreal, excellent food quality, well prepared with the timing of each course delivery perfect to the flow of the evening. We appreciate the excellent selection of wines, most particularly the wide and varied list of wines by the glass - a must when a table of four or more is selecting across a wonderfully eclectic menu. In service, it's the little things that count. My wife did not notice that she had dropped her napkin. The waiter did notice, and simply presented her with another without a skip of a beat. The sommelier was most helpful, and every suggestion perfect to the course at hand.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Try the tasting menu!
Tasting menu was superb and the service excellent and great wine advice to go with each course!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Special dinner in town
We don't go out much downtown anymore. Wanted somewhere fancy for wedding anniversary.
Grant, fashion, trendy and packed!
Tables a little too close for me. Don't enjoy unsalted butter.
Appetizer had anchovie not mentionned in menu, bad start.
Rest of the food and service very nice. Try chocolat coulant with caramel, mummm!
Discreet mention of our anniversary, nice!
Wish warm mini madeleines were presented in a take out box
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious and Romantic
My husband and I traveled to Montreal because it is a place to find fantastic food, and Maison Boulud is another fabulous find. We had the tasting menu and we requested a wine pairing with each dish. The food was excellent, and the wine they chose to pair with it was perfect to bring out the flavor of each dish. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is lovely. This is definitely a top restaurant. I hope to go back again soon!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful food in a lovely room
I was lucky enough to be there on the second day of the season they were serving Italian truffles with butter linguine. So simple yet so perfect. Foie gras plate was beautiful and delicious. Nice wines by the glass and I like that they pour them table-side.
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Lived up to expectations for us. Delicious food, excellent service, and they made a surprise treat for a special occasion with no request. Wonderful experience!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lives up to reputation
After a pleasant experience in the bar, we took the plunge and made dinner reservations. Our evening got off to a bumpy start when they seated us in the back room in uncomfortable chairs. However, when we made the request to be reseated we were ushered basic into the main dining room and the rest of the evening was smooth as silk. We ordered the tasting menu with matching wines. The meal was magnificent from amuse bouche to dessert, with impeccable service, pacing, presentation and palate-pleasing courses. The dinner was, of course, quite expensive, but worth every penny!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent on everything!
Reception was quick and discreet,
Our server Sylvain was exceptional,
La maitre sommellier was very helpfull.
It was a great experience,
I would do it again, in heart beat.
Enjoyed every minute of it!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Maison Boulud was exactly what I expected. Daniel Boulud's subtle flavors and richness is not something that should be missed. If you love food and enjoy the different tastes that are expressed in every dish then try this restaurant. It is quite expensive. We had 1 martini each and a glass of wine and the total was around $800 for 4. If you have some extra money and you really want something special than this is the place to go. They have special items like shaved white truffles on your dish as requested.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bread arrived cold. Butter was also cold and not spreadable. Servers are adequate but not to the level expected of a restaurant of this caliber. Food arrived warm not hot. When I made this reservation I had mentioned that is was my wife's birthday. Even though I was not expecting anything special for her it would have been nice if the staff were informed of this and that some consideration was given to say happy birthday or offer a complimentary glass of champagne.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Le "Piemontais" et l'"Hôtel
Le "Piemontais" et l'"Hôtel de la Montagne" maintenant fermés, il ne reste plus beaucoup d'adresse à Montréal où on y prévilégie le grand service. Nous venons de trouver un des rares endroits à Montréal avec une telle culture de service. Enfin... Sans parler du décor, du confort et de la table. C'est cher, c'est vrai, mais le rapport qualité/prix y est. Ça vaut le coup! Une belle expérience...
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Did not disappoint, wonderful lunch
La Maison Boulud was a wonderful spot for a birthday lunch outing. The table we were given looked out on a pretty green space (which I'm guessing can be used for seating in the warmer months). The service at our table was impeccable: our waiter was affable and perceptive--we really liked him. We all had the three-course table d'hôte which we enjoyed tremendously: the flavours were well-balanced and refined. The meal was not too copious, although the quantity of dessert may have been a bit off-balance with our two other dishes (there was a little more than was necessary, but just barely). I would highly recommend this spot for a special occasion if not for a really nice lunch once in a while. I would love to try supper here as well.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Where are the tablecloths?
I recently visited Maison Boulud with my girlfriend. Dinner was delicious, service was prompt and friendly and the decor and ambience was fine. The tables were rather deep do it felt like you were a mile away from your partner and I would have expected that a restaurant of this calibre would have provided tablecloths on the table. Perhaps I am old-school but a tablecloth rounds out the dining experience and makes it more welcoming..not to mention quieter.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food and service
We ate here on a Saturday evening but the service was spot on. As earlier reviewers have commented on, the bread is served cold which is rather unusual but it is delicious. The lobster salad and the fois gras appertizer were exceptional. Whilst the monkfish entree was good it was not very good. To be fair both desserts were exceptional so overall a very good but not outstanding meal. Be prepared to spend around 150$ CAD each diner with a moderate bottle of wine.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
All around amazing
Highly recommended!!! Food was incredible, service impeccable.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Boulud doesn't disappoint
The meal was solid in all respects. The food tasty. The wine recommendations excellent, the service attentive, and the atmosphere pleasant. Daniel Boulud delivers a solid experience. A special call out for the sommelier who really knew her stuff.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good but...
Maison Boulud is a very good restaurant but the service is inconsistent. Been there before : outstanding each time. Our last visit the Asian waitress was doing her job and not enjoying it. The lady at the table next to us told her that she didn't like mushroom. The waitress insisted to give her the white truffles, a speech she'd learned and served us 5 minutes later. Doing a job. We're sorry but we think that's the Maitre'D's duty to check about the service given in his establishment. He didn't come to our tables to verify. But let's give them a chance. We'll return for sure. I hope correction would been applied.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food,excellent service, terrific wine, a very enjoyable evening with the food and service a cut above almots anything else in Montreal.
