About Maison Boulud
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.

Maison Boulud Ratings and Reviews
We keep on returning to this restaurant for having a casual and leisurely lunch with friends and or for business lunch occasions. The setting is like an oasis in the heart of the busy city of Montreal - in the summer the beautiful garden and the pond with ducks give it a magical touch and in the deep of the winter the sun filtering through the atrium setting lifts one's spirit in the middle of the snow and freezing rain episodes.
The food is always excellent innovative yet reminding one of familiar homely tastes and the presentation is always superb. There is a good choice at noon and the two item or three item set menu is very reasonable. The daily wine choice suggestions are usually in the $50 range for the bottle and always an excellent match with the menue offered.
The service can sometimes be a little unnecessarily condescending but at this visit we had an older and experienced server with excellent but discrete humour and who was very attentive to our wishes.
At the coat check I stood in line but when my turn came the attendants turned their attention to a new arriving group rather than serving me on my turn. But while checking out I got good service - so I hope that first glitch was just that, a glitch. Also when I called around 11 am to see whether we could change the reservation to 12:15 I was given a lecture and decided to keep our initial 12:30 reservation. When we arrived there did not seem to be any problems.
I discovered Chef Boulud on a Talk Show and decided to go for a business lunch with my colleagues, what a delightful surprise. From the moment you enter the restaurant you are greeted like royalty, coat check, coziest chairs with back cushion for more comfort, employees at your service in a blink of an eye, courteous, friendly and genuine and f course the food is just amazing, I am definitely going back, a real gem! Thank you for a most wonderful lunch!
Service was outstanding. Food was special and delicious. Ambiance was chic and comfortable. Wine steward was knowledgeable, accommodating and most pleasant . The only let down was the tea which was lukewarm, including a second pot and insufficient mint leaves. All in all a definite gourmet treat!
This was an amazing experience. Firstly, the interior is very nice; the decorations and environment are accented but not gaudy, and the dining space (chairs, tables) is very spacious. For the food, I initially had doubts as to whether or not the portion sizes and menu options for Saturday brunch would be filling or diverse enough. However, the amount of food served (including dessert) was definitely enough. There was also a variety of appealing dishes to choose from, The hospitality was excellent. The servers were very in synch with both us and each other, working like a well-oiled machine. Everyone was very courteous, and cared for us well. Overall, good food, good atmosphere, and good staff. Memorable.
Excellent, attentive servers. Food was equal to any of the many Michelin starred restaurants I have eaten at in past. When my wife didn’t care for the Chablis by the glass we ordered they opened a bottle of wine that was only available by the bottle and poured her a glass. Friendly and courteous. A great dining experience.
Came here with a friend for an early breakfast on our trip. The food was fantastic, though felt just a tad overpriced. But that's what you're getting with the Ritz's ambiance and class. On the other hand the service was ok, and despite a not-so-full dining room, I felt as if we could have received better attention from the waiters. The menu is well tailored and has plenty of options while not being excessive, and if that doesn't suit your fancy there is always the buffet. Overall, I'd highly recommend a meal here.
Boulud Montreal is at par with the bests in its class. Within the Boulud Family, such as the Boulud NYC restaurant, Boulud Montreal represents a warmer, more welcoming setting, while the dishes at NYC would be slightly more sophisticated in comparaison. We were sitting nearby the fireplace, which was a nice touch, as the outside temperature was really cold that night...we appreciate! The cocktails were outstanding, White Negroni for one. Special thank you to the sommelière on duty, who provided the exact compatible food pairing despite our varied meal selection...a tour de force...kudos! Service was warn and attention...just a pleasureable outing really!
Cheers to the staff & a Happy New Year!
almost 4 hours for a brunch service for 6 people!!! the +38$ for truffle eggs were served cold to both people who ordered them, we waited over an hour in between services!! had to ask for water, no coffee refils were offered and total bill over 700$ i don't mind paying but NOT for cold food and an entire wasted afternoon on my son's 18th birthday
The staff, specially the wine master, were respectfully friendly and knowledgeable. However, I thought that the amazing wine list was too sophisticated for the food offered (however much we enjoyed it as it was perfectly cooked and presented. My wife had the Loup de mer and I had the pintade. Both marvelous dishes). I would have liked to see more than a couple of bottles between $50.00 and $75.00. The choice of wine by the glass was more than adequate.
We will, definitely, dine there next time we are in Montreal.
Not our first time at Maison Boulud for a special occasion. About a couple of years ago, the quality of the meals would be slightly uneven, from one evening to another. Lately however, they seem to outdo themselves on each occasion. This time it was for my son's 20th birthday. Wanted this evening to be great! Entrées, main course, dessert, wine suggestion - Everything was spot on. Black Cod, St Pierre and Lamb were all prepared and cooked to perfection.
Service was very attentive without being obtrusive. As soon as we mentioned that one of our guests was gluten intolerant, they did ALL that was possible to accommodate and make her feel at ease.
A perfect evening ! Bravo to all the staff.
Le menu dégustation est un incontournable pour qui veut vivre une expérience culinaire inoubliable. La créativité du chef italien Riccardo Bertolino n'a pas son pareil. Les plats sont à la fois exquis, uniques et épatants. Parmi les délices d'une carte qui varie selon vos goûts et/ou vos intolérances, soulignons le crudo de dorade, délicat et suave au palais, ainsi que les gnocchis aux homard, absolument divins agrémentés de truffe noire. Le sommelier aussi contribue fortement à l'exploration gustative, dont vous sortez éblouis du premier au dernier service. Mention spéciale aussi à tout le personnel, très attentif et aux petits soins tout au long du repas.
Tout d’abord, ma meilleure amie et moi avions réservé pour célébrer notre anniversaire de naissance (nous avons la même date de fête et c’est très spécial pour nous). La tradition annuelle est de célébrer notre anniversaire à une des grandes tables de Montréal, puis à chaque fois, nous avons été comblée par le service exceptionnel et les délicates attentions portées à notre égard. Sans entrer dans les détails, la Maison Boulud n’a pas su être à la hauteur de sa réputation. Nous sommes franchement déçues par l’ensemble de l’experience que nous avons vécu vendredi dernier. Nous ne recommanderons pas la Maison à quiconque souhaite souligner un événement cher à leurs yeux.
