Delicious food and cocktails. Service wasn't great - had to ask twice to get a drink for our friend, had to ask to get water glasses refilled every time, had to wave server down to order food, asked for a food option with no dairy and received a dish with a yogurt sauce. Maybe we just got an off night, but it was an important business dinner so wasn't ideal.

We’ve got a corner table as requested but unfortunately was not quiet. There was a table with very loud patrons who were talking and laughing at the top of their voices. So loud that I couldn’t hear my husband right next to me.
It was hockey night, so I guess it attracts fan who already thought they’re at the game.

This was the best restaurant experience my wife and I have had. Well done and highly recommended. If you have a chance to visit this establishment do not hesitate. The experience made for probably one of the best nights in Vancouver we had on our vacation. Compliments to everyone involved. The chefs have created a beautiful menu. The desserts were so well presented it was almost a shame to eat it, just beautiful.

Our waitress was horrible, that’s really the only issue. She was rude about wine questions and treated us like we were the reason she couldn’t go home. It became a running joke that she didn’t refill one of our party’s water glasses. It just wasn’t fun dealing with her.

Fantastic food with top-quality ingredients provide the foundation upon which Boulevard's stellar service and fine dining ambiance rest. If I had to be critical it would be toward the desserts--of which I've only tried two, the terrine and the mousse--and mainly because I found it hard to find the perfect bite of mousse (it was cloying otherwise) and the terrine was a bit tricky to eat because it was very dense. But this is only in comparison to their main courses because everything we had was exceptionally delectable overall. Very highly recommended.

The entire experience was pleasant and inviting. The oysters were delicious and I was happy that our server separated them by region, so we knew what we were eating. The Seafood Pasta and Sablefish were to die for, so delicious, fresh and exactly what a dream meal consists of. Our server was very attentive and kind. It was a wonderful experience!
