Maison Boulud Montréal offers the cuisine of a chef steeped in French tradition, yet inspired by decades spent cooking in New York City.
Daniel Boulud's menu is driven by the seasons and bounty of Québec's local purveyors. The result: refined yet soulful contemporary French food, prepared here by Executive Chef Riccardo Bertolino.
While situated in the Ritz-Carlton Montreal, the restaurant, its bar & lounge and two private dining rooms have a vibrant identity all their own. Maison Boulud enjoys a view over the historic hotel garden and year round glass enclosed winter garden. Daniel Boulud's welcoming spirit, the casually elegant tone and glimpses of a partly open kitchen keep the focus on the cuisine, making this a daily gathering place for wonderful food.

My wife and I have been to Maison Boulud a number of times and have never been disappointed. It is always a wonderful experience. The service is consistently outstanding, the decor is excellent and the food is amazing. There is also a very good wine list.

Last week my wife and I traveled to Montreal from Oakville, Ontario in large part for the Maison Boulud experience. We wanted to celebrate my wife's birthday and our anniversary in Montreal and at Maison Boulud in particular. We did the same thing last year. We had a wonderful evening at Maison Boulud - just excellent!

For those spending several days in Montreal we also recommend the bar at Maison Boulud. Sometimes my wife and I will just have a drink in the bar and have the small charcuterie and cheese tray for dinner. Great atmosphere, very good food, and excellent service.

If you haven't been there you should go.

Been once for dinner and loved it. Discovered Saturday Jazz brunch and just had to do it. The ambiance, the food and the service is outstanding and far from the trendy overly noisy places where people rather spend time texting on their phone because they cannot have a serious conversation. Beautiful decor with the garden view and the open kitchen.

We had dinner at this restaurant for celebration of our wedding anniversary. We were promptly seated at a quiet corner of the restaurant. The restaurant has a pleasant ambiance, soft lighting and music that is not distracting. Our waitress was professional yet friendly when it was called for, service was impeccable throughout. The wine list is extensive and includes mostly high end of the French wines but there are some good deals as well. The food was just outstanding. We had fois gras terrine, crab and maitake mushrooms as appetizers. There was nothing I could find a fault in, the execution of the dishes and presentations were excellent. Our main dish was a perfectly cooked lamb. A desert of figs and another one of peaches were out of this world. I have eaten at other Daniel Boulud restaurants in New York but I have to say that in my memory none reached to this excellence. I highly recommend the restaurant and I am hoping to return soon.

Went early for breakfast. Very friendly staff. Very good service. Opted for a table outside in the verandah. Very bright and sunny room. Confortable seating. Overall great experience. Only disappointment : Ordered poached egg. First 2 were overcooked. Returned my plate and got 1 out of 2 properly cooked...

Excellente nourriture. Un seul bémol pour la table qu'on nous a attribuée :
Il y 3 sections dans le restaurant pour asseoir les clients. Ce serait bien de nous offrir le choix lors de la réservation ou à l'arrivée.
Nous Nous abons été placée dans la section jardin avec chauffe-terrasse. Nous aurions préféré être dans la grande salle pour l'ambiance. Le service était excellent, là où nous étions mais, nous avions l'impression d'un restaurant moins chic avec les platiques faisant office de murs.
Bien sûr, il en aurait été tout autrement si nous avions été l’été puisqu'au même endroit, nous aurions alors pu profiter de la beauté du jardin.

The outing was for a special occasion. We had drinks before dinner in the cozy bar area followed by a great meal. The menu choices are varied, with many unique and very interesting combinations of ingredients. Our knowledgeable waitress took the time to go over the menu choices in detail and explained the intricacies of the food preparation as the courses were served. The food was very nicely presented. The portions are not big, and prices are a bit high, but we felt both were fully justified due to the quality of the ingredients and attention to detail that made every dish an equal contributor to an overall memorable dinner experience.

J'ai beaucoup aimé l'expérience. Tout le personnel est très bien. Cela c'est juste un peu gâté en cuisine ou l'attente a été longue pour le plat principal et cela a cassé le rythme. Aussi, l'assiette de poisson était franchement pas assez généreuse comparativement à tous les autres services.

Was staying at the hotel and went here the last night of a special girls trip. I think we had the B-team for service, but the server was adequate. Thought we would be seated in the beautiful dining room but was seated in our breakfast room, so nothing special as far as ambiance. They were out of two items on the menu. I had the pappardelle with mushrooms, which was good, and my friend had the raviolo. My starter was fois gras terrine and hers was the salad, all good. The homemade brioche that comes with the fois gras was exceptional. They presented us an amuse bouche of a cheese gougon and we had coffee and madelines for dessert. They presented 4 dessert bites with the bill, which was a nice touch. I do not recommend the Telenti Brunello of which I ordered a half bottle. It was too young and solely my fault.

My friends and I went for a special ending to our trip to Montreal. We were seated outside; since the temperature had dropped, they had installed plastic "walls" and put on some of the heaters, so it was plenty warm. We enjoyed looking at the garden and seeing the big ducks. Very good service. As to food: They brought out little puff pastries that were exceptional. The oysters, ceviche, and steaks were great. The focaccia was really, really good. The corn veloute was ok, but I would probably not get it again. Although we were all full, we split a chocolate cake, which was really tasty. Then they brought out a tray of small bon bons, which we forced ourselves to eat even though we were full, and they were awesome. We also enjoyed our cocktails and wine. We are really glad we went and will definitely go again the next time we are in Montreal.

I have dined out a lot, and in a lot of different cities.

Maison Boulud is on of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable.
We sat at a table on the edge of the garden which is an experience like none other.

It is really hard to describe just how amazing this experience was.

I would highly recommended this to anyone looking for excellent food, service and ambiance.

Marie-Christine is one of the best waitresses I’ve had. She made the experience much better than I expected service could be. This alone is the reason why I will return.

The food was good. The stone crab and sea urchin appetizer was fresh and well balanced although the sauce that remained was a little bit too sweet - almost like an orange jelly spread.

The 60-day aged beef chop did not have the intensity of flavour you would expect from something aged for that long. The marbling was not the best as there were pockets of fat that were inedible (unless you like chewing on fat). We also received the beef rare instead of medium rare so there could be some improvements there. The wild mushrooms and cumin carrot sides were excellent.

There will be a second visit as the restaurant has a lot to offer. Seafood is probably a better choice. More to try for next time.

I don’t often give 5 stars, but Maison Boulud has consistently been the exception. Exceptional service (Antonin is literally the best waiter I’ve ever met, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone better), outstanding food, and the ambiance is perfect. I understand it’s not an every day outing for most people, but if you can do it, it is well worth the money.

Having grown up with traditional Mediterranean food that mom would cook, eating at Maison Boloud was about the same experience, with a little twist or touch as they say. The service was very good and ambiance friendly. I found they filled their specialty cocktail drinks with ice(not necessary as one or two ice cube would do the job), giving you very little liquid for the money you pay. The fried artichokes entree dish was small as compared to what you would get in a good restaurant in Spain; not as tasty, and overpriced for what you got. The desserts were original and very good.

As part of a weekend of dining at some of the finest restaurants in Montreal, including Toque and Europea, we visited Maison Boulud. We had eaten at Daniel in New York City, and thought it was outstanding, so we had high expectations for Maison Boulud in Montreal. We were disappointed. The two meals we had did not live up to the hype -- there seemed to be minimal creativity or originality, no spark or inventiveness in the kitchen , sauces were routine, the food preparation and presentation ordinary, except for the excellent desserts -- the pastry chef gets 5 stars. The sommelier was also helpful. The service overall was good, despite a long delay between the appetizers and the main courses, which our server explained was caused by a "back up" in the kitchen. To be blunt: the sense we had was that this is a restaurant trading on its founder's good name, but lulled into near-mediocrity by the reliable flow of customers provided by the Ritz Carlton.

We loved this restaurant last summer. This year, we still loved the creativity of the appetizers: the smoked salmon and tuna tartare were amazing and beautifully presented. However, the main courses the frittata, the rigatoni and the croissant sandwich were mundane. The desserts were also fine. We did not try the one that used red cabbage although it sounded very interesting. The service and ambiance were impeccable as usual.
