Boulevard is connected to the iconic Gerard Lounge at Sutton Place Hotel in the heart of downtown Vancouver featuring an oyster bar, private dining room and a large outdoor patio. This restaurant is the new showcase for the legendary and artistic fare of Chef Alex Chen. His inspiration comes from French traditions with a respect for the past while staying both current and modern. Our goal is to deliver an ambiance, service and cuisine that speaks of who we are and where we are located.

Dinner was AMAZING and the attention to detail really is what separates Boulevard from everywhere else. We went for dinner for my fiancé’s birthday and on our table was a card that said “Happy Birthday” and on the back was handwritten note wishing him well. Our server was super friendly and checked up on us frequently. The food was extremely delicious. We ordered the wagyu carpaccio and it was perfectly seasoned and balanced. For our entree, we ordered the Salt Baked Snapper for Two and since it took awhile, chef comped us two individual size tomato salads (which I wanted to try anyway)! The snapper is tableside service and our server was extremely knowledgeable and presented well. For dessert, we ordered the Fromage Blanc and kitchen sent a small slice of peach mousse for my fiancé’s birthday 😭 then the petit fours!!!! Chef Alex, Chef Roger and Chef Kenta are geniuses. The FOH are trained well and bar had interesting cocktails. Order the 40 Thieves cocktail and the Conquistador! We want to come back for the regular menu.

Ordered the "seafood tower for four" as an appetizer. It was awesome! Super fresh and outstand array of oysters, crablegs, mussels, shrimp, and sides.. Fed us all so much we moved directly to dessert. Server Merisol was outstanding...and made our night out very special!

Amazing seafood tower and beautiful British Columbian wines from okanogan valley. Close to train station. Located in a stunning hotel. Enjoyed outdoor seating on a gorgeous day in Vancouver . Service was spectacular.

Seafood tower had abundance of fresh seafood and homemade salads and sauces. The oysters were especially good. Sable fish entree had lot of components that balanced each other well. Chocolate soufflé was exquisite - served with vanilla sauce on the side, which was poured into the middle of the soufflé by the server. They also make their own delicious bread and cornbread. Top-notch food, service, and decor. I very much enjoyed the meal.

The service was phenomenal! I had clicked that it was for an anniversary when I booked on OpenTable and they left a card waiting for us when we were seated! Very impressed and also gave us a complimentary dessert as well! Overall fantastic place for a special occasion/date!

Beautiful restaurant with a great atmosphere. Seafood tower was excellent. We had the New Zealand Snapper en crut for 2 served tableside. Presentation was excellent and the fish with its accompaniments tasted wonderful. Only disappointments were the very stoic nature of our server (everyone else was excellent) and the vast number of bones still in the fish. This is obviously a high quality, high end restaurant. They acknowledged our anniversary beautifully with an assortment of bon bons. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend it to others as I feel there are better restaurants to spend that kind of money at.

We really enjoyed our dining experience at Boulevard Kitchen. the food was excellent and the wait staff wonderful - both educated in the food and preparation and quick in service. it was a bit too noisy for us but that seems to happen in every restaurant. it was made worse by the fact that we were sitting in a booth and the distances were more difficult to navigate.

We had our first meal in Vancouver in this restaurant and it was a great way to start our trip!

The staff was very friendly to us and the seafood tower I ordered looked great and and it was delicious! I was told by the others that the fish cake and the quinoa salad were also very good. The portion sizes were perfect for us, tho they might be a small for other people.

Would definitely dine at this restaurant again!

It was a good experience but service was a little slow in the middle for a brunch day which wasnt so busy. But prompt service for the brunch cart to come by! The clam chowder was great and he omelette too but the fried chicken was a little dry and tough. Though the mashed potatoes, biscuit, and slaw were tasty.

Great Variety of food, wines and cocktails which are very different from any other resturant in the town. We had our anniversary dinner there sitting outside and we did really get the feeling of being in France. Service got bit slower as it got dark and not many people sitting in the patio but it was still better than most of the resturant in town.

Visiting from La Quinta, CA. Nothing exciting about the dining room but Tanbier, our server, was friendly, helpful and efficient. The heirloom tomato salad and oysters for starters were wonderful. The seared foie gras and beef carpaccio as entrees were super tasty. The matcha tea desert was one of a kind delicious. Will be back.

The food was actually not bad. The service was awful. Our server basically gave attitude for asking for cutlery for our birthday guest.

Server did not know what the letters on the bottle of wine were. She went to ask someone and when she came back couldn't remember what she was told to tell us.

Couldn't remember what type of Oysters she brought us.

Was a poor poor experience for such a great chef's restaurant.

We will not return here again due to the really poor service even though the food was good.

Excellent atmosphere for dressy or elegant casual dinner. Food was superb. Dessert of rose and lychee was poor and very disappointing. Service was efficient but quite curt.Michael was unfriendly
A young man Issac however stopped to speak with us. And he was a wonderful representative of your business
