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

The food is always great.
I was surprised to see a hamburger item on the noon menu - it did not match the other exquisite offers.
The madeleine's they serve upon request are the best in town. You can also order little boxes of these madeleine's to go.
The service is always attentive and well informed.

Maison Boulud is an exceptional restaurant in every regard--outstanding food/wine/cocktails as well as caring and attentive service. For a venue that specializes in fine dining, the atmosphere is very warm, something that is often missing in such places. My family of three had a wonderful time at Maison Boulud. It was a high point of our weekend in Montreal, and we will remember the evening with great pleasure.

Perfect attentive service as usual. The signature cocktail wowed us all - cosmopolitan with an oriental twist- ginger, white cranberries and a frozen orchid. Everything you'd expect from a great French restaurant, and a relaxed, unpretentious ambiance.

Disappointing menu. Supplements of 12$ and "extras" are tacky in such a place. Vegetarian options were very limited. The chef said he would substitute any dishes with veg. choices but really how do you make a lamb burger vegetarian? A hair was found in the salad and was graciously replaced. But aren't hair nets mandatory? Prices have increased on the lunch menu and have made it prohibitive. I wont go back for lunch or supper and will only go for drinks in the future. The wait staff are wonderful, professional and attentive. I want to love Café and have been going there since it opened in Montreal but i am dissapointed with the price increases and the recent menu.

I booked this restaurant based on Open Table reviews and dining at other Boulud establishments. The service was terrific. My husband tried squab for the first time and loved it. We shared delicious oysters. Wine by the glass was very expensive, but there were plenty of choices of wine by the bottle. Ambiance and artwork were quite nice.

The brunch food was not up to the expectations set by restaurant. The lobster roll was good but not great. The fried potatoes and fried egg were ice cold when brought to the table and did not add anything to the house cured salmon (in fairness the smoked salmon itself was very good). Overall ok food that is not worth the asking price.

Lovely restaurant with comfortable seating. Service is friendly and caring, if a bit slow. Good but expensive wine list. Unfortunately, the food is mediocre at best. Even basic dishes are messed about and unappetizing.

This was my third time dining at Maison Boulud. The first two times were honestly outstanding, but something seems to have changed since the last time I visited. They don't offer a tasting menu anymore, and the service (previously outstanding) has really suffered. I will reconsider next time I go out for dinner.

Limited wine list by the glass, ordinary bread, really small portions of food. We have been to Boulud restaurants in New York and Toronto where we live and there is no comparison with yours. We were disappointed in the entire experience.

The food and ambiance were terrific, but the service was really annoying . Throughout the meal, our waiter interrupted us to try to up-sell more food items. It would not have been a big deal except that it happened 4-5 times. Then, when we were looking around to try to order more wine, we couldn't find a waiter. I would not return, considering how expensive the restaurant is.

Our server was extremely attentive and was able to make wonderful suggestions when asked. The timing of the meal was impeccable and we were able to savor each course without feeling rushed. Quiet birthday dinner. Definitely lived up to our expectations of this fine restaurant. Everything was delicious and beautifully prepared.

I invited one of my customers for lunch at this restaurant. The greeting by the hostess was very friendly. We were seated adjacent to a table of eight ladies that spoke very loudly. I ordered a Tête Fromagée as an appetizer which was elegantly presented along with small pickles and veggies and a bit of mayo-ailloli. The portion was quite small but nonetheless extremely tasty with the fresh grilled bread it was served with. My main course was a black cod. The dish was served in humongous bowl and the portion was almost microscopic. The fish was served with mini Bok Choi's and one sliced mushroom in a broth that was rather bland and the temperature was lukewarm. Curiously the fish was accompanied with something extremely similar to the mayo-ailloli I had with my appetizer which I found a little odd. The dessert was extraordinary consisting of a small chocolate cake with a liquid center of chocolate and Caramel with Fleur de Sel.

We heard this is a place to try in town by one of a good foodie we know. Host was polite, we were seated near the garden so we liked the view. Water took long as our drinks came before the water. We noticed a knife was totally oily with smudge all over. Did someone forgot to change our utensils? We had juice, coffee, soup, smoked salmon, rigatoni, cod, viennoiseries and waffles. 5.50 for less than 250ml juice, soup was a lot of cream, didn't taste lobster much. Smoked salmon was good with egg and hash-brown. Rigatoni is home made but the sauce so creamy and heavy. Cod was well chosen, but the sauce lack the miso and oumph, no need for breading on top. Madeleine was good, but the rest not that memorable. Belgian waffle is supposed to be a little more doughy, chewy and gooey. This waffle was crunchy outside and light inside. So not belgian at all. The baguette they serve, I wish it was frais du jour then slightly toasted to make it barely crunchy on outside and warm and soft inside. Is it only in Provence we can get the best baguette? I think for upscale restaurants, we can still hope that everything is made from scratch in house at that price. We might give another shot for lunch or dinner.

Very nice restaurant, good ambience, attentive staff, good food. My husband said, that the beef he had was the best he ever tasted. I had seafood with wild rice, which was good,but nothing extraordinary. The prices are high for the starters and salads, but considering the restaurant's name and location that's normal.

Food was fantastic.
Service was on a par or better than any restaurant that we have ever dined at anywhere in the world.
The young lady that served us was knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu, describing each course flawlessly.
She made the dining experience a joy.

One of my best dining experiences in Montreal. The staff was professional, diligent, and friendly. Despite multiple food allergies, they were able to cater to our needs and the food was delicious. Would highly recommend.

Maybe to waiter was to busy. Don't know exactly why. But too many mistakes for this kind of restaurant. Drop my glass of champagne on the table. Then the water, then forgot to bring the wild mushrooms because apparently he forgot. On top of it, it was is suggestion of the night. Over all good company makes it all good.

Maison Boulud should be a bucket list restaurant. Everything you put in your mouth is delicious and the staff is beyond nice.
It won't be cheap but if you are looking to eat some of the best French style food created with the best ingredients, then it is worth the experience.

The venue was very pretty and the restaurant itself is wonderfully designed. The food was above average and well-presented. The servers were cordial. The view of the garden is also quite nice, although from where we were sitting it seemed like half of the garden was empty or unused. For me, what I disliked the most was the fact that my seat was right next to a busy passageway to the terrasse, which meant that every time the waitstaff went by (which was frequently), my chair rumbled and thumped alongside the passageway. But beyond that, if you can get a nice spot away from the passageway, and do not mind spending about 200$ for a meal for two people, then I could suggest this place - particularly for a business lunch or get together.

Always HAD a great experience at Boulud, however this time it was not the same. Different staff &/or chef perhaps, not quite what I would expect from this establishment.
1) Table misunderstanding,
2) Staff brought wine to the wrong table,
3) Ordered the black angus prime rib eye & was served a filet mignon instead.
For the first time I left somewhat disappointed.

The service was very good. The food was very good also, you can see the details and hard work put into a plate, from Appetizer to Dessert. My appetizer which featured Sicilian Eggplant was amazingly flavourful, you could taste the real taste of the vegetable, with the sauce not overpowering the natural taste of the dish. One of our main plate was a bit salty though, but saltiness is a subjective appreciation. I got accustomed to eat less salty lately. The cocktail was amazing, they are very generous in alcohol, and they show you what quantity of alcohol they give you, because they mix it at your table, which is a subtle extra touch which I appreciated. The ambiance and decor were exquisite. We were seated in a type of solarium which gives you an impression of being outside without being outside.
Overall a very good impression and experience of the restaurant. I would gladly suggest this for special occasion to friends and relative, as the price tag is to be expected to be a bit above average.
