    This was my third time at Boulevard, but the first time coming for a birthday (my sister's). We were surprised to find that there few options for people who are gluten-free, given the restaurant is in a hotel and would have to catering to guest needs, but we were guided to some of the options that would be possible which was appreciated. However, with two of three courses we were served, there was an issue related to something related to gluten. The oysters weren't gluten-free (even after originally checking) and then the ice cream dessert included cookie crumbs. We reminded our server at every stage of the meal we had a diner who was gluten free, but it didn't seem to stick. As an alternative to the oyster we got a shrimp cocktail but when it came, they gave us 5 shrimp. For 2 diners, it's simply an awkward amount of food to share, so a very bizarre kitchen choice. Lastly, with our mains and a side dish we ordered, all three came either cold or room temperature, at best.

    We found the decor to be dark and dated; a bit like the old time steak houses. The fish was spectacular and perfectly prepared. Dessert was also excellent. Overall was a very good experience but the evening could have been improved but better lighting and updated design.

    The place was busy and we found it a bit noisy. The food was okay and quite pricey for what we had. The service was fine and they gave us a small piece of cake with a candle (complimentary) to help us celebrate a birthday.

    Didn't realize 4 hrs had gone by! That's a reflection of the company AND the service. The service was non-intrusive, polite, respectful... contributing greatly to the wonderful evening. Plus the salmon and lamb were delicious. I do think that if someone can not eat oysters then an alternative/substitution should be allowed in the seafood tower.

    We had the most incredible dinner last evening at Boulevard!! From the moment we arrived, we were greeted warmly, seated and introduced to our server, Yvette. She was extremely well trained and experienced, making the evening even more enjoyable! The baked oysters and seafood tower were AMAZING!!!… and the entrees were all equally spectacular! The dessert presentation was unbelievable!! I would recommend Boulevard to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience!!!

    Wanted to love it. Food and drinks were spectacular, but for the price we expected better service and ambiance. There were a few miscues and instead of addressing anything or making that extra little effort, it was just brushed aside. We will just go somewhere else

    We were so disappointed with our experience. We waited over an hour for the food, one order was wrong and one was forgotten. We’ve stayed at the Sutton for years awaiting the kids to be old enough to enjoy the Boulevard. It wasn’t a good experience.

    Disappointing at best. We had heard that this is Canada's top 9 restaurant and were eager to give it a try. The Seafood Tower for Two was meh & nothing I'd order again (might as well just buy the oysters a la carte). For our main courses, we went with the Seafood Chowder (again, nothing special) and the Seafood Linguine (which was good although not 5-star). Perhaps we were expecting too much? I don't know. Our server, though, was a delight :)

    We had an early dinner last night. With 10 minutes before our 2 hour time slot was up, the waiter rudely said "I need the table". We get it that Boulevard has been named to the top 100 restaurants in Canada but you don't have to be rude about it. As I stood to leave 3 minutes before the end of our time slot, I noted about 10 vacant tables and when I walked outside there were 3 tables on the patio vacant. There were no customers waiting anywhere. All of this overshadowed what would have been a nice dinner. I was welcoming a new employee to our firm with their spouse and it really made it look like we were not welcome or appreciated. Consequently, the tip was reduced. It is important that leadership recognize that it is clients who have great experiences who recommend it to their friends and colleagues. We are lucky in Vancouver to have opportunities to enjoy great food across many different styles. It was noted that the dessert menu was a little less ornate than usual which is unusual for Chef Kenta. I am sorry that I am no longer able to recommend Boulevard.
