We had a great dinner, experiencing the outdoor dining at Boulevard. Enjoyed being outside on a beautiful spring night. Food looked and tasted fantastic too, we loved the lamb shank special. Thanks Boulevard.

We had a lovely meal for my boyfriend’s birthday. We were nicely spaced out on the outdoor patio. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Get the wagyu!!! The service was top notch, our server was very knowledgeable when speaking to us about our drinks. A+ Boulevard!

Amazing time in the outdoor tent. So romantic with the white lights and cherry blossoms falling. Traffic noise was present but not bad. Tent was warm with all the patio heaters, and the staff were incredibly attentive.

They cooked the Ling Cod Really well, but the dish should not be called cioppino as it hardly looked like one. The price was expensive and the quality of the service, food content was no where close to any high end restaurant. They wouldn’t even provide bread with your dinner. I definitely will not go back. The restaurant really lack of class!

Went in with high expectations based on what we had heard, but were very disappointed. The service was awful as our server was quite rude and didn’t really seem to care at all. Our food was quite mediocre as well.

Great staff, service, and food was fantastic. Portions were small, so most people will need an appetizer, otherwise they will feel hungry afterwards- which we were. Other than that, outdoor seating was comfortable, heaters meant we didn’t need to bundle up and we enjoyed the plants on the tables and overall ambiance.

We were challenged to the halibut not being overcooked and it was. Could be that a number of patrons arrived and possibly overwhelmed the kitchen. The lamb and sablefish were excellent. The service could not have been better. Will definitely go there again.

We had a fantastic meal. Boulevard has done a good job accommodating the work safe regulations and we ate outside under cozy heat lamps. We enjoyed the wine recommended by the sommelier.

My husband and I were so excited to have our first dining experience at the award winning Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar, but after spending $250 on our meal we left quite disappointed over the food. The service and ambiance were 10/10...the food was 2/10. Sadly, we would not go back or recommend to our foodie friends.

No gluten free options besides oysters on happy hour. Server didnt try to accommodate the allergy so we actually left after one drink and ate next door at Italian kitchen who was able to accommodate the food sensitivity.

Very disappointing. Seated and waited 15-20 minutes while multiple different servers passed our table ignoring us the entire time. No one acknowledged us after we were seated.Did not appear overly busy or I might have had more patience and tried to get someones attention. We ended up walking ourselves out without a single staff member acknowledging us as we passed by them. Can not speak to the quality of the food as I did not get an opportunity to order anything.

I’ve always love going to Boulevard Kitchen. It’s one of my favourite restaurant. They have one of the best Foie Gras in town.. I had cravings for it so I hauled my entire family for dinner. As always, their Foie Gras never fails me. So sumptuous And mouth watering. Their clam chowder is perfect, so tasty and not too salty. I had their Ling cod cioppino which was good but a little bit salty for my taste. My husband had the lamb shank as always, but this time the lamb was a bit dry in the inside. I have noticed too that our waiter was not very attentive to us. Our water glasses are almost always empty. We’ve had to ask him to top it up at least 2-3 times.
Over all, I still recommend this restaurant.

The food was absolutely sensational, I’ve been savouring the exceptional flavours of the beef carpaccio and sablefish I had there for last couple of days. They boast a finely curated wine list and well chosen beers for those who enjoy a malty aperitif. The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and extremely accommodating. I only wish we had room for dessert and cocktails as they both looked great.
