Service was probably the best I've experienced at a restaurant ever. Food was outstanding. Not a single thing I could complain about.

During COVID it is difficult to assess service. Staffing at restaurants is in a flux. We had to wait quite a while for our food. The waitress was nice and I think it was a kitchen problem rather than a server problem. The sommelier was helpful. The hostess I though was a bit terse. There was a person starting their first day shadowing the hostess and that person was much more friendly and helpful. Staff should understand that the patrons are doing the restaurant a favour by dining not the other way around. The food was fairly good although my dish was a bit dry and I wonder if that was because it was sitting for a while. This is generally a good restaurant and think this was an aberration.

Still a good place for a wonderful meal!
Since the change from Cafe Fleuri, I have not been but, the food is still excellent.
Servers are still very personable and atmosphere is relaxed.
Didn’t much care for the loud music, it made it feel like just another of the current restaurants where it stood apart before.

I have a complaint.

My wife and I dined at the "Boulevard" on September 4th, 2021.
For our main courses, I ordered the sablefish, and my wife ordered the lingcod.

The sablefish was delicious.

The Ling Cod was inedible. My wife couldn't eat it. I couldn't eat it.

So we sent it back and ordered sablefish for my wife.

But Boulevard charged us for the Ling Cod and for the second sablefish.

And I paid for the lingcod and I tipped on the lingcod, because I didn't want to make a fuss.

Boulevard owe me an apology.

I think you owe me a refund.

Very tasty food. The combination of tastes and textures and the visual impact of the plating were great. We had the clam chowder, the baby gem lettuce and the curry cauliflower as appetizer and then shared the sable fish as the main course and the salted praline bar and the mango vacherin for desert. One of the best restaurants we have eaten at and it was a last minute decision to go there.

We booked for the patio but it was right by the drive-through entrance of the hotel so it was not very pleasant. We moved inside and it was absolutely perfect.

Great food, great wine, poor ambience.

It’s like ownership and mgmt has never dined in their restaurant.

The place was cold because the front door was propped open at 9pm.

The kitchen door was also propped open so we were forced to listen to and watch the kitchen , with its terrible lighting loud sounds.

The light pollution from the lobby is tragic, some king of barrier is required.

For the $150 per person we spent, we wish for better atmosphere.

Service was fantastic, had many great suggestions for wine pairings and insight into the dishes. All good was prepared phenomenally, and was delivered with an explanation of what everything was. It was our anniversary and we were given a surprise dessert on the house. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I was quite disappointed with my experience. I brought my friend here for her birthday. Although the food was good, it was not so good that it was worth on average $45+ per plate. The portions were very small and they didn’t include any bread with the meal. I had also noted on the reservation that it was my friend’s birthday. I was disappointed that they didn’t acknowledge it at all. Why ask if it is a special occasion if not even a happy birthday is wished? We sat on the outside patio and it was very noisy with the traffic along Burrard and the non-stop vehicles coming through the hotel roundabout. The service was okay; however, none of the staff wore masks. I was quite surprised to see this. I have dined recently at other restaurants such as the Keg and Cactus Club and they have a full mask policy. It was very off putting when the person who brought out our food would describe it to us (without a mask on) as they leaned over our food. For the whole meal including gratuity, I paid $180. For the value and experience, it was definitely not worth it. I was excited to try Boulevard but I was quite disappointed with our experience. I wouldn’t come back and would not recommend it for a special occasion.
