We were a group, out for a nice evening in Vancouver, The food was quite good, if a bit uneven and overly pricey, but the service was shockingly bad. A combative wait person; a manager who couldn't or wouldn't remember that customers come first. We had several other dinners in the neighborhood on other evenings, all very pleasant.
Be forwarned: Stay away.

Lovely evening spent at Boulevard. All the waitstaff were exceptional including the 3 hostesses. The food was creative, interesting, and delicious and our waiter, the one with the Punjabi beard, was outstanding.
We will certainly recommend to friends and will most definitely return.

We booked 2 weeks in advance for our belated anniversary. The restaurant called they day-of to reconfirm our reservation. We show up on time and are offered the table at the door, facing the hostess station. In a half-empty restaurant. ??? I declined the table and asked to be seated elsewhere as there was obviously many other options. Another couple ahead of us who had no reservations but were staying a the hotel were seated in an equally-high traffic area. They also asked to move. Again, I'm not sure what the host staff are thinking. On a Tuesday night when the restaurant is only half-full at most, it would be nice if the staff learned to seat patrons at more desirable tables. Having previously worked in the restaurant industry for 15+ years, I understand options are limited when you are busy, but as stated, it was not a busy night. Beyond the seating issue, the night went very smoothly. Good waiter, nice wine and good food. House-made crackers served with the cheese plate were excellent.

Extremely slow service. Took 45 minutes to get soup.

We had been told the place was a great spot for seafood. It's not - it's just regular restaurant that happens to have oysters. Really disappointing meal.

Me and my wife went for celebration of birthday together. We were very impressed by the testing menu and excellent service! The every bite of food just made feel it was our privilege to choose this restaurant. The testing menu consists of many award-winning courses especially the duck (that is something out of universe). My wife and I always travel for food and we had lots of top restaurants together. Boulevard is one of our favorite now. I love the service provided from my waiter (sorry, forgot about the name but a tall guy with ponytail) definitely added the value to my dinning experience!

Everything was great. Our server did a great job guiding us through our experience. It was also my birthday and the staff did a great job making sure I felt special. I recommend the seafood tower and the sable fish.

The food portion was quite small, but it was expected. What completely ruined the night was the horrible service we got from the waiter. He seemed to be rushing us the entire night, and he was utterly rude, just left our table when one of us were still talking to him... Definately not the kind of service I was expecting at a restaurant like this.

The restaurant is part of a hotel and in the central area of Vancouver. Our server was warm and inviting. We decided to sit on the patio as it was a nice day and we were there for lunch. We shared a seafood tower. All the items were delicious. The oysters were crisp and clean (although being a former oyster shucker, I can't get over how much places charge for oysters now). Be sure to ask for bread at your table, as the mini cornbread muffins are outstanding.

We had the tasting menu, and the main course - a duck/marrow concoction - was awful. The texture was like gristle, and the taste was not much better.

The seafood tower was excellent. The seafood linguine was disgusting. No other way to put it. Sent back but dinner was ruined. Won't be back. At this price point the dish they served was inexcusable.

I cannot find the words to express how lovely our dinner at the Boulevard Kitchen was . The food was delicious,. Our waiter Rafik D was most attentive, and knowledgeable in guiding us with our choices . From the oysters with the accompanying Espuma and Mignonette , to the Fromage Blanc & Praline bar , our taste buds were very happy:)
I cannot wait to go there again .
My compliments to all who work there .
