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

I did not rate the food five stars because although it was excellent (nicoise salads), they were ridiculously small for main dishes. We had two salads and coffee and the check was more than $100!!

Have dined at numerous Daniel spots in NYC and had high expectations. Pretty space, great service. However, food was disappointing. Pea soup a bit bland and overpowered by chunks of smoked mackerel, snapper ceviche kind of bland, lobster pasta dish oversalted, black bass dish just a mess with poor melding of salty, citrusy, and olive based flavors. Too many fine spots in Monreal, look elsewhere.

Season products are used by the chef. This is a big plus. And of course, all the dishes were as good looking as they were delicious to eat. Service was wonderful. Everybody is listening to what you ask, and they know their menu and their wines.

Initially, having booked weeks before, we were seated at a very poor table with a view of the kitchen door and all that goes with that...... I told the young man who seated us it was not acceptable. He told me there was nothing else. Not giving up I asked our waiter who said he would see what he could do. We were moved to the patio where we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Isabel, the Sommelier,was lovely and paired a delicious wine for us.

Very Nice ambiance, little bit too expensive for breakfast though. Nice service and good Food. I'll be back for sure.

Was not impressed during our visit for Brunch. Took 25 minutes to get water to the table and over 1 hour to get brunch when the restaurant was less than 50% occupied. Eggs benedict came out cold, and 2 orders of burgers were sent to table with incorrect sides and toppings. Very dissapointed as I had hyped up this business brunch to clients during our Formula 1 visit.

Perhaps our expectations were too high. We are from NYC and have really great restaurants available to us. We had expected an exceptional meal but felt it was only OK. It was Grand Prix weekend and the restaurant was packed but a restaurant of this caliber and reputation should be able to handle the crowd. I had the rack of lamb which was good but I have had better and my husband had the halibut which was a bit overcooked-- The chocolate cake for dinner was great but all in all the experience was a bit of a let down

We went for the $55 post 9:00 pm three course dinner as listed on the website menu. Unfortunately, they said it was not being offered due to a special event. We ordered off the regular menu. Maison Boulud is a decent place but a very poor value. One can have as good - or better - a meal and experience in one of Montreal's many excellent restaurants for one-half the cost.
Great place, great service and good food| We love that place.
Over rated much
Small portions, pricy but expected, too many flavours in a dish, hence lost the essence of the main ingredient
Pricey but worth it!
Certainly lives up to its exalted reputation by delivering on all aspects. We enjoyed the "outdoor" ambiance, excellent service, romantic, every mouthful of each offering was a wonderful treat--particularly remarkable were the Morels!!

The lobster and scallop dishes highly recommended! Excellent service and the sommelier offered very fine and appropriate options.
celebrated my birthday with the 6 course tasting menu. every dish was fabulous! the atmosphere was perfect- the terrace was very peaceful, overlooking a duck pond ! the server , julian, was fabulous. very charming, attentive and passionate about the food! One of the best servers I have had the pleasure to enjoy. the courses came out quite slowly... we were there for 3 hours and at 2 courses an hour, we wished they would come a little faster! still ,great flavours and great value! the cocktails were great and the team service was impeccable. I highly recommend !
Food was great but service a bit slow
Party of 3 for lunch. Arrived at 12h15 for a 2 course lunch. We left the restaurant at 14h00 because service was a bit slow. The food was delicious though.

Chef Bouloud et al lives up to his repitation Taste excellent Food inventive Presentation superb!
Beautiful meal in elegant surroundings
We're big fans of Mr. Boulud, so this was a "must" for our recent visit to Montreal, and it did not disappoint. We began with cocktails in the lounge, then moved to dinner. My one regret is that I did not request the dining room while reserving, as were were seated on the (covered) patio, which lacked some of the romantic atmosphere of the interior. Our meals were gorgeous, with intense flavour and just the right portion size. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine from PEI, and finished with dessert and Cognac. I highly recommend les fromages for dessert. Service was excellent without being effusive. Each staff member we encountered was warm and friendly, incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, and not a whiff of snobbery. We luxuriated for nearly 3 hours and had a fabulous time.
Bland and Boring!
Brunch was a disappointment. The menu looked good but the appetizers and entrees were bland and boring. Every dish arrived to the table nearly cold. The presentation was uninspired. The desserts were pedestrians. The overall experience compared poorly to other Boulud restaurants namely in New York City.

this is one of the best place for brunch in Montreal. We've been there numerous times and have not been disappointed yet. 5 stars for service and food
What service should be like
Finally, when I pay $200 for a meal.....the service matches! Service was impeccable, everyone that served us, new answers to everything, wine, food etc. Food was very special and great, definitkey something you have to try at least once. Especially the wine pairing meal. Everything was perfect till the end though...once meal done, service kind of lacked. We wanted a coffee and saved our delicious Madeleine's and had to end up flagging someone to get assistance. We placed our order and waited about 20minutes and no coffee and no waiter asking if all was well. We flagged someone again, seems they didn't quite see the paper with order, which is fine. We then said that our delicious Madeleine's are now not warm and soft cuz been too long. They took it back and instead of serving us a fresh batch (considering we waited 20-25min for coffee) that was disappointing. But besides that, best service I've experienced in a long time
Good food and good service.
We appreciate that restaurant. The ambiance is very classy. The food is delicious and the service is excellent.

Wonderful dining experience. Staff attentive. Wine stewart very helpful and knowledgeable. Food outstanding!! We sat on the patio overlooking garden and small pond. Weather was perfect. My wife had the rack of lamb, and stated it was the best she ever tasted.

Outstanding meal and service in every possible way, from the cocktails in the beautiful bar to the yummy Amuse Bouche and an outstanding snow crab salad followed by lobster gnocchi and amazing rack of lamb on the terrasse. Astounding Choco Coulant for dessert. The Anthill Pinot was a perfect pairing!

Sweet potato chips was chewed! ceviche was to poor portion! wine list was good, service as well, fish was very fresh and tasty. only ceviche dish need review.

Went with my wife or our anniversary. We took the pre-fix menu. The staff was very friendly and explained what was in the each of the 6 courses. Wait time between each course was great as it allowed time to digest a little but never felt we waited too long for the next course. Each course was fantastic. The plating was excellent, I ate with my eyes before tasting the food. Would definitely go back.

This restaurant is overstated. The food was very average but extremely exprensive compared to other options around. Service was attentionate and impeccable. The garden scenery is very beautiful. But at the end, it's the food that matters most. Wine list is extensive but there too, overpriced
good but needs some perfecting touches
The service was impeccable. And almost the entire meal was delicious.

Great, as always! Enjoyed the herb salad with anchovied goat cheese, soft (quail?) eggs, and ramp vinaigrette; the sauteed morels with chicken jus and fresh cream (heaven!); the sauteed foie gras with brioche and grapes. Dessert was the chocolate coulant with vanilla ice cream. Service was attentive and excellent. Can't wait to go back.

A fine bar, excellent food, but for the extravagant cost, service took far too long between plates.
Terrible service-slow to order and receive food. We had to pour our own wine once-no one came altho many were there. Only the lady for dessert and coffee was good. Beautiful spot in the garden, good food. Not worth the price because of service.

Superb food, well trained and expert staff, but long waits between courses and way too expensive. One can dine in numerous Montreal restaurants savouring every morsel without spending $500 for 2 people.

It certainly could have been better. The menu was not very creative ... It was a nice experience but I expected more from this chef... The dessert was a lot more creative then the rest of be meal, but the dessert chef is not Daniel Boulod so like I said I expected more ...
