Our family always go to Boulevard to celebrate every important event, however last nights experience was by far the best! Mostly because my daughter, the birthday girl, walked away with a big smile on her face. We would like to thank the Boulevard Team, Isaac, JP, Chef Roger Ma and our special server, Aleekia for making the night another memorable one. Thank you and to many more to come!

The oysters were incredible . The service was great, very accommodating & checked on us frequently . Our main dishes were the hanger steak and pea risotto . The prices for each dish were understandable for the quality of ingredients but not necessarily on a taste level . They both lacked exceptional flavours that in my opinion should be the standard at a high eked restaurant like The Boulevard. The hanger steak was seasoned poorly . The overall ambiance was nice but the music playlist wasn’t cohesive .

The ambiance is great as are the servers. The food is good but WAY too overpriced. Very small portions. And they kept the front door open so the servers could go in and out to access the patio but it made it cold inside the restaurant. Coffee is great.

Just a quick note that I am celiac (autoimmune disease that reacts to gluten) and after triple checking my dish was gluten free, it did in the end have gluten in it.

I understand I assume the risk of dining out and mistakes happen but thought I did enough due diligence in checking three times to ensure the dish was safe.

Once the error was identified the manager came over promptly and the dish was taken off our bill, however, as I write this I am I’m suffering the consequences of consuming gluten. As suspected, I am in pain and ill and will be for the next few days.

I just wanted to make note of this to help with any future celiac guests.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my feedback.

Best,

Ashley Hamilton

The server was not friendly borderline rude, wanted to take the order one time and didn’t feel open for us to order anything else. He treat us with contempt. The food was great but we won’t probably come back.

Love your Happy Hour. A safe, civilized, convenient way to meet friends/family during the pandemic. Consider adding an artichoke dip/bread to Happy Hour to share.

What a lovely experience! Wish I had caught our server's name. She was attentive, cheerful and gave great recommendations. The food was excellent. The Seafood tower was so fresh and absolutely delicious! I actually enjoyed the outdoor patio setting better than my previous experience indoors. It was just beautiful. I highly recommend Boulevard and will return again soon

Reservations for 330pm, called the restaurant, got put on hold and never returned. Called back again that we were running late due to congestion with paramedics. Arrived and the hostess seemed irritable. Kept mentioning that you have 1.5 hours left in your reservations because there’s other people waiting, okay all good, understood. Our server was not the most pleasant, not very attentive at all. Kept making comments about how we were late and can’t serve us dinner depending on what we get because he feels we will run out of time. He spilled drinks on my friend and never once came to wipe the table. The snarky comments by the server were just adding to my annoyance but we just tried to make the best of it. Not worth what we paid for since we had the lousiest service. Food was mediocre. Definitely not recommending since everyone was asking on my social media. Super disappointed. It was also my birthday by the way so it was definitely not a good experience.

The food was outstanding. Everything was SO fresh and wonderful. What took our experience to the next level was our brilliant server, Robert. Robert’s extensive knowledge of the wine and food menus made us very confident in our order choices. What would have already been a pleasant evening became a truly memorable one. We already can’t wait to return.

Great food. Patio seating was well spaced out but very loud as it’s right off a busy street. Excellent and attentive service. Expensive but still a great night out.

Server and service was great. However, I don’t believe that the tent patio tables were properly distanced. My group and I felt a little uncomfortable with the rowdy table so close behind us.
