Food was excellent, but wine pairing was disappointing.
Great location, nice menu, friendly service from waiting staff. Kitchen super slow. Food lukewarm. Have eaten here many times and it has been better
My second visit. The food is exceptional in both its presentation and the complexity of the taste experience. Service is attentive. The room is warm and inviting.
It was amazing! My boyfriend’s first time there, and he loved it! Coming back soon!
Maison Boulud never disappoints. The food is always amazing, such a wide range of cocktails, and the service is top notch!
I was there twice and same conclusion: the food is not that excellent for a gastronomic restaurant. Very good but not outstanding like other restaurants I did in Paris, NY, London... The WOW effect is missing in the plate and in the decor. Overall too expensive for what it is. Almost 70$ for "spaghetti aux truffes" with al dente spaghettis covering max half the plate and 7-8 truffle chips on the top was even some kind of a joke. The service was very good and the atmosphere cosy though.
The most underwhelming experience unfortunately. Nice endive salad, really poorly prepared porchetta. Great service but genuinely the most disappointing experience as Daniel Boulud restaurants are generally incredible and consistent.
Service excellent nourriture sublime nous allons y retourner cette été dans vos magnifique jardins .
L'ambiance était un peu trop bruyante pour une conversation entre amis. Les rapines étaient beaucoup trop sales. Le service était impeccable. La gentillesse et l'amabilité du personnel, exceptionnels.
Excellent service with a nice ambiance and delicious food ... must experience
disapointing food,specialy spaghetti,but all four guests were dispointed
Excellent food and service. Great for a business lunch or dinner.
The only real problem we perceived was that the table and chairs height is off! The chairs are too low for the height of the table but it’s all easily fixable - the table legs can be shortened- nothing drastic.
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.
Best breakfast in MOntreal. Full stop
