Initially the wait for appetizers was long, over 45 minutes, but after that they redeemed themselves.

Food and waiter were fantastic.

Celebrated a birthday, and they were kind enough to drop off a birthday dessert which was much appreciated. Good service, good food, very welcoming!

We are regulars for weekly dining in Vancouver, I have to say this worse and poorest service that we experienced in a long time, the server had a very bad attitude , he should have stay at home with the attitude he had, I will have to think twice before visiting the restaurant again

Very good service and a lovely meal from start to finish. We had a special desert for our special occasion-anniversary. The cocktails were particularly well done and the oysters were wonderful BC delicacies. Nice selection of wines and I was able to have a half bottle of red while my partner had a half bottle of white. Very nice on both counts.

We were trying here our first time. The staff is super nice, friendly. Isaac recommends us a nice bottle of wine. The Oyster and seafood and steak are super yummy. If we are in Vancouver again, we will definitely come back. It's a fine dining place, there are many couples and groups of friends hang out on the patio.

Dinner at the Boulevard was one of my favorite dinners of 2021 so far!
Not only was the cocktail list and menu thoughtfully constructed to celebrate the best of local and international flavors, but when served by Isaac (who takes Service to a new level) the whole dinner was just incredible.
I recommend the Sable fish. And my friend was very happy with his Wagyu.
But leave room for cocktails and desert, both of which are artistic!

Fantastic restaurant with fantastic food. We both got the prix fixe with wine pairings, and it was delicious and the perfect amount of food - don't go in with the expectation that you will be stuffed after an appy, an entree, and a dessert. The presentation was amazing, the food and wine were delicious, and the atmosphere felt luxurious. Definitely a place to go for a special occasion.

Seafood tower is well worth it. It’s considered an appetizer & thus opted for the lamb as the main course. The lamb was not up to par compared to the tower in terms of flavour & price value. The portion for this course was also small.

Masks were recommended but felt that the staff should've at least had masks on with new variants emerging and tourism picking up again. Not too many recommendations and surprisingly, the seafood tower which was our main reason for visiting was also not recommended.

My husband & I went for happy hour. We ordered 3 dozen oysters. 2 were bad & obviously didn’t eat them. I mentioned it to our waitress but she didn’t take it off our bill. Other than that, the oysters were great. Fries with truffle oil are also delicious.

Boulevard was just perfect for our meet up with our dear friends for dinner and cocktails! Our waiter accommodated us to stay after dinner at the same table so that we could visit more with our friends in the outdoor patio! We shared another bottle of wine and some sparkling water. It was an extremely hot evening... The service was incredible!!

The asparagus salad was a thing of beauty. The egg in the middle, perfection. The oysters were excellent with lots of sauces. The hangar steak is sous vide, so perfect, as were the beets and turnips. Lamb was very nicely done.
