Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
Excellent restaurant. The pork entree dish was absolutely amazing as was the chicken dish. Service was very friendly and definitely made me and my girlfriend feel very welcomed. Wait time for the courses is about what you would expect from a high end restaurant such as this one, maybe a bit faster then most restaurants of this scale.
We were here for the dine out menu and it didn't disappoint. Dishes came out relatively quick. We ordered everything from the dine out menu, all of them tasted great. My fav was the pork loin that was cooked perfectly. The passion fruit mousse was delicious. Service was prompt and fantastic. I have been here a few times and each time I have a pleasant experience.
We had read that this place was one of the best restaurants in town. Unfortunately we didn't think so. Two of us tried the dining out menu and we're dissatisfied. The starter was a flatten shrimp press, only about three bites total. For the main dish one of us had the Sablefish which was very fishy and had little to no flavor. We also tried the Rigatoni which was good. For dessert we got the cake which was again about three bites. We'll probably skip this place next time.
Tried the restaurant during dine in Vancouver and glad I did. It was a family affair so we were able to try a number of dishes.
The food was excellent both in quality and visual appearance. The service was outstanding - just the right amount of attention at the right time.
A very enjoyable experience.
This is the worse dine out vancouver for the most expensive category. (I've tried out so many dine out and fine restaurants in the world). The appetitzer is too mild in taste. The rocky fish is really salty and yet the pork dish is too mild and tasted like ham. The desserts are only OK. The presentation of the food on the plate is very nice, but the taste is substandard for this price.
I would not recommend anyone to try out their dine out. Maybe they will fair better with the regular menu... but that we have to see.
The environment and the service are nice though.
I have been there just for drinks ans oysters and that is an excellent option there. Service is well above par and the oysters and cocktails are great.
I sent my in laws there for a special occasion and they both raved about the food and the service. Both said it was one of the best dining experience they ever had.
We celebrated my husband's birthday at Boulevard. The heirloom beet salad was creative but not at all what we expected. The bouillabaisse and the Parisienne gnocchi mains were good but both were more like an appetizer in size, and the mont-blanc meringue dessert was interesting. Breakfast the next morning was okay, and I really appreciate being able to order a half Benedict. The restaurant is attractive and service at both dinner and breakfast was good. As for the food, we have actually been more impressed with some of the Happy Hour specials.
I have always enjoyed the Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar having been for business lunches many times. Both the food and service are exceptional, which also makes this restaurant an exceptional value. I would recommend this restaurant for business or social occasions.
Although it was new years day and therefore a hectic brunch buffet time, it is still not OK to bring a cappuccino when a latte was ordered. Or to bring cream and sugar when it was specifically refused. Or to resort to stacking one's second plate of food atop the first, dirty one.
The food was deliciously prepared, but some of the fruit was unripe. I suggest the chef taste that too, before serving it.
Though the food was delicious, I was unhappy with the fact that the regular menu was not available. The online breakfast menu was replaced with a special New Year's buffet at double the price - a surprise that was not budgeted for. I think Open Table should be able to note menu changes in the booking app.
The food was quite good but very expensive. Granted we were there on Christmas day for lunch. However, $50.00 for Smoked Salmon Eggs Benny is a bit much even on Christmas Day. Anything extra was charged as well, $3.00 for extra hollandaise. Pretty good, but nothing exceptional.
Service was top-notch. Room is nice without being too precious..Oyster selection from the fresh bar was excellent with good presentation and accoutrements. Beet Salad was particularly special with very good Burrata cheese, small heirloom tomatoes, mandarin orange slices and walnuts creating all kinds of interesting flavours
Stayed at the Sutton, first met a friend for happy hour and then moved to restaurant to meet a different group of friends for dinner, I love the restaurant has different atmospheres based on where you are seated, I have been in the cigar area for happy hour in the past too. Service is excellent, they are fast, efficient and non interfering, I'm not one for fake chit chat, although other guests were chatting away with the bartender, seems like they get a good read on guests. Food was great, nothing world changing but classic delicious flavours.
A very nice setting, large, comfy, casual chic or formal. Nicely decorated. I had the linguine vongole (red sauce) which was a nice portion, not huge, not small. It was good, but thought the pasta was a bit sticky. My partner had the duo heritage pork, which was pretty good, small portions. Dessert was the Mont Blanc.It was excellent! Service was very good. It got quite noisy by 8:30, probably because there was a bridal rehearsal dinner.
Was a business meeting with 7 people. Shared the seafood tray, which was amazing - oysters, crab legs, mussels, etc. The special that day was a large prime rib and sides, which we also shared. Service was terrific - friendly, professional, immediate and entertaining. Overall, the whole group were impressed with the level of food, service and venue. Everything was perfect.
Food was great, but the dining room was a bit loud as there was another party going on. Service was quite good but my wife like to take pictures of the food and when the server brought the suffle she didn't give her chance to take a pic and just broke the suffle. Overall I would go back
We booked here for my 30th birthday brunch after seeing Boulevard on many "best brunch in Vancouver" lists. Sadly, it was not what we were expecting. The menu online was completely different to the one in-house and the food was substandard hotel fare. The service was slow, shoddy and poor. I personally felt really disappointed and won't be recommending Boulevard to anyone I know.
Best hospitality eveeerrrr!!
Some other customer took my favorite walking umbrella from the umbrella bucket by the door. I told the concierge lady about it. And the Service Manager, Nick, gave me a Sutton hotel umbrella and told me he will watch the surveillance video and figure out who took it. Nick later phoned me up and told me he got me a new umbrella for me from the store where I bought mine!
I am really grateful about it. As a matter of fact, I lost the same umbrella at Le Crocodile in May. I bought another one in July and was so sad that someone else took it again. I really appreciate their help!
Great dining experience, too. They have really good decor, comfortable seats that suits all your needs for being in a quiet and elegant high-end restaurant. Great food! Highly recommended to anyone.
Oysters were good. However the food was so-so. Waitstaff was great, but food took too long to arrive. Was nearly 15-20 min just for my whiskey neat to be delivered. Was another 30 min for an appetizer seafood tower of cold elements to be delivered. Overall making it a longer dinner. Was expecting more but didn't get it.
It was my first time to visit this restaurant I went for brunch with a girlfriend the restaurant was almost empty except for three or four tables at 12 noon on a Sunday. Service was sub par asked for hot water with lemon of course they forgot the lemon then I ordered Earl Grey latte and they said that they had to make another one when it came it was Luke warm.
Everything was very slow in terms of the service and the food the food came to the table without any utensils for us to use so by the time the utensils came the food had cool down.
The raw Oysters were really delicious and fresh... The salmon Benedict was so so.
I was disappointed so I had to complain to the manager.
