Excellent as always. Celebrities spotted as usual.
Aside from the 45min wait to be seated for our reservation time was a great experience. We were comped for drinks and desert so that made up for the wait. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Overall a great pic.
Amazing restaurant. Service was outstanding and the food was great
I had the tuna tartare for my appetizer
The scallops for my main
And the profiteroles for my dessert
It was amazing!
We were disappointed with the noise level emanating from the bar downstairs. Two of our party are a little hard of hearing, and conversation was difficult. Food just too over-the/top. Potage parmentier had to have half a pint of cream - much too rich. Service good and pleasant but we will not return.
Zach, our waiter, was knowledgeable and a consummate professional The food was outstanding and the timing was not rushed despite it being a very busy night during TiFF.
It was a nice professional place.
A chic place to get together with friends or have a romantic dinner. The food is inventive and delicious, service is very professional.
The food was very nice and service was also excellent. Much enjoyed our meal.
Food is always exceptional. Worth every cent. Good ambience.
Server was very good. Food was just okay, especially considering the price.
Good location, nice restaurant, but there are so many more delicious offerings in Yorkville.
Wonderful food definitely will keep in mind for anniversaries
Wine prices high!
Well, cafe boulud fine dining was my fav restaurant in the city before....
Now cafe boulud the want to hip restaurant is not at all my taste.
So I will not come back. It's a shame for the price point they want, for the decor and style they have now chosen.
Deft kitchen and service. Excellent tartars - both tuna and beef. Of course the rotisserie chicken remains a defining experience
Excellent food. Attentive service. Highly recommended.
Went to Café Boulud for a lunch business meeting and I have to say that the food quality was incredibly disappointing. Because it was boulud, the four seasons and fairy pricey, I expected the food quality to reflect that and it simply didn’t. Nothing tasted bad - except the vinegar taste on the eggs Benedict was much stronger than it should have been - but I could have had close to the same quality meal at sunset grill for half the price. I suppose you are paying for the atmosphere but that’s not enough to bring me back. He food has to be good as well. Will not return, even on a company’s dime.
Server was great. Too bad they let a dog in to table next to us. If it’s a service dog it should be clearly identified. Also take note of the dust and bugs hanging in the drapes. Brought this up with manager who dismissed everything and made excuses. Never again
This was my third weekend brunch at Cafe Boulud. The first time was amazing. The second time the food was excellent but the service was substandard. This time the entree and the service were both disappointing. Our reservation was at 11am; we received our entree over an hour and a half later. We were celebrating my niece’s eighth birthday. The waiter brought out her birthday dessert at the same time the adults received their eggs benedict. We all agreed that the eggs benedict did not taste as good as previous times. Our appetizer, the Berries Tartine, was delicious. Initially we ordered the Profiteroles (a delectable ice cream dessert that we enjoyed during our previous visit) but had to cancel it because we had other birthday plans and had to leave. Overall the food at Cafe Boulud is delicious but I do not know if the food is worth the wait.
Weekend brunch menu had a wide range of selection- there’s definitely something for everyone. We found certain dishes bit too heavily seasoned though. It does get busy so make sure to book a reservation.
Super awesome - this place is the real deal for quality everything. Have a Led Zeppelin cocktail and share everything. apps and ‘seasonals’ warrant sharing to try more - desirable to skip mains and go aggressive on top half of menu.
Loved the ambiance and the food. I’m not so sure about the service, we kept on having to flag down the waiter
I can’t rave enough about the appetizers.
We had the zucchini flowers (oh. My. God.) and the grilled octopus (oh. My. God.).
Both were GREAT!
The mains however did not live up to expectations and didn’t continue the great experience we had - we had the duck confit and the cod.
It was almost a damper on our spirits.
To be fair, that might just be because we compared them with the apps.. which might just be a good problem to have for the restaurant.
As i write this, in the background I hear “you must write about the service, because we didn’t feel like we were out of place” - so there you go.
And it was.
The staff was friendly, relatable, and down to earth.
All in all, a great experience.
My advice: order as many apps and sharing plates as you can. And nothing else.
Excellent location inside the Four Seasons Hotel. Sohisticated decor, attentive service, and a very good menu. My duck confit was excellent. My wife and guest had quenelles, which are rarely offered these days, and were full of praise for their lightness and flavor.
Exceptional food but truly a great staff. To remember guests and care about thier feedback is the rarest of traits. Well done.
Oh, and dessert was off the charts excellent.
Everything was perfect! Delicious breakfast and stellar wait staff. Thank you!
For the price was under whelemed by the service. Compared to alo which is in the same price range it was very low. Rachel however is amazing at making us feel wowed
I thoroughly enjoyed eating at this “French” restaurant, except that I paid $25 for an omelette that was no different than the $10 version I had at my local restaurant in Pennsylvania.
Simply over-priced fare that tastes as good as any other...
Fantastic food and attentive service. Definitely recommend!
If you go to Boulud have the chicken or the duck for two. Outstanding.
As always, great service and reliable food. My dining partner thought her fish was marginally overdone. Otherwise, superb all around.
Service was great, food was excellent and the chocolate dessert was beyond excellent.
Ask for the Profiteroles with chocolate hot sauce poured on top !
Excellent food seriously marred by lackluster service (long wait for refills of water, food, wine; waiter left the bill and walked away), that plus an intolerable level of noise (house music) from the downstairs bar which started before we finished our mains. There were no warm madeleines at the end of the meal - a hallmark of all Cafe Boulud - an added disappointment.
We were there for a special birthday lunch; excellent smoked salmon, attentive service and very special surroundings made for many happy memories. We will do this again.
Our party of four enjoyed very good but not great food. The ambience was good but not great. Our waiter seemed to be distracted and our service was very slow. All in all only a somewhat better than average evening which did not meet our expectations. I doubt that we will choose to go back.
Our waiter was very good a dealing with our young child, however the arrival of the food could have been better. After 1/2 hour we had to ask about our cocktails, he had forgotten. The 1 hour later he brought us another set, to make up for his forgetfulness. Was thoughtful of him but we couldn't drink them since we needed to drive home. Our 10 year recieved her food before we even had our appetizers which showed up about 1/2 hour later.
I did note when booking on open table that it was a birthday, yet the waiter knew nothing about this. When he did find out a delicious plate of madelines where brought to the table.
This was our second time there for a Sunday brunch, I think the first time was better because of the service.
Maybe the waiter was having an off day, sometimes that can happen.
Taking mum out
Great experience, thank you very much!
Truly incredible food and outstanding service; worth every penny. I have 15 food allergens and they handled each of them gracefully. Will be sure to come back next time I’m in Yorkville - 5 stars to Daniel Boulud and his team.
I’m quite disappointed in this experience. I am a big fan of This chef and couldn’t wait to try this restaurant knowing it was at the Four Seasons and they’d only have the best.
The food was a let down. I shared the rack of lamb for two with one of my dining companions. The fat was not rendered at all. What? At Cafe Boloud? My other dining companion ordered the profiterole for dessert. The presentation was quite spectacular but again, the dish was very disappointing. They were not at all profiteroles, and the cookie base on them was soggy as could be.
The worst part of the meal though, was the table of a family with 3 children seated next to us. The children were very loud and climbing out of their chairs and running around, banging in to our table repeatedly. This was not McDonald’s. This was Cafe Boloud at the Four Seasons at 10:00 pm. What? A $600 meal for 3 should have been so much better and so much more enjoyable. I will not go back next time I’m in Toronto.
Our experience was incredible. I had the duck confit which was cooked to perfection, my friend had the porcelet also delicieux! The wait staff was attentive, the decor retro mid-century modern, the chairs not only stylish but extremely comfortable. I would for sure come back for another special dinner.
