Very good, but very expensive for what it is. The food is good and the ambiance is nice but you pay for the name Ritz… Cocktails are way too expensive.

I invited another couple to join us for Brunch who had never been there before. They were enthralled by all aspects of the occasion. It was very enjoyable for all of us.

Madison Boulud seemed to be one of the top choices in Montreal. Google searches and open table would tell you as much. However, when it comes to Montreal there are so much more that is hidden from the immediate search. Madison Boulud, although it had it’s charm, was mediocre at best. When we arrived we were seated, not in the picturesque terrace, but on some sub par conference room chairs underneath a cliche wedding tent canopy and strung out greenery. When I sat down I had a fan blowing right in my face, and the picturesque terrace turned out to be a make shift tent with a giant fire extinguisher next to our table. The waiter was courteous and kind, he brought us our drinks promptly, then we waited 50 minutes before anyone came around to take our food order. The food was quick after the wait to order, and as expected for a resto of this class, but it was nothing special. For an honest review… all sections are out of 5…

Service: 3( Due to timelines and other reasons, see below)
Seating:1 (unacceptable to promote cushioned garden seating and put us on conference room chairs. Two other groups asked to be moved)
Food: 4 (very tasty, the lamb was a bit tough and gamie)
Ambiance: 2.5 (lovely garden, but a failure compared to other options in Montreal, i.e Jardin Nelson. )
Price: 3: average for quality and quantity.
Drinks: 5 - well made. Best part of the meal.

Other notes:
When I told them the seating was uncomfortable, we were given very dry tiny pastries. It actually made the occasion worse because they were so gross!

Unfortunately, the service was tone deaf and robotic.

Final review: overpriced and over promised because of it’s connection to the Ritz, find yourself somewhere else to experience true Montreal quality.

We were delighted with our dining experience. The cocktails were wonderful. I was so impressed with my flower encased in ice. My wife loved her lobster and her meringue dessert. I thought my risotto outstanding and my chocolate dessert was transcendental! I would recommend your providing another vegetarian option.

Niçoise salad left something to be desired. Flavour overall was quite bland. Tuna tartare was delicious. Would go back again, hoping they can rework some their offerings. Atmosphere was delightful, service was great.

Reserved a table for two to celebrate my friend's birthday. The service was first class with the entire staff members calling me by my last name. They were all extremely friendly and my waiter Sylvain was the best. He even took several pictures of us by the small pond and garden they have. The wine and meals were amazing, particularly the salmon tartar. Last but certainly not least, the decor and ambiance is beautiful and relaxing. I felt as if I was on vacation. This place is a true gem in Montreal!
