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

We enjoyed a birthday dinner here recently. The wait staff are very professional and courteous. We ate in the outdoor courtyard, which was quite pleasant and a pretty reprieve from the city street. I had noted on our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and the staff surprised us with a shared dessert at the conclusion of the meal. This was delightful. The suggested wine was enjoyable. I would recommend Maison Boulud to diners staying at the hotel as is wonderfully convenient and anyone else wishing to enjoy fine and dining.

Excellent food with a seasonal touch.Pricey but great for a special occasion.The garden was beautiful.The main disappointment:although I had booked well in advance and requested the garden twice(initially and upon confirmation) we were seated in a corner indoors,when there was plenty of seating in the garden, and had to insist .However,we were accomodated.

Wonderful, relaxing lunch: dined midday, on a Thursday, and seated in the bright, back dining room. Decided upon the 3 option prix-fixe. I chose a panzanella appetizer (several different types of sliced tomatoes, with crunch chunks of lebanese cucumbers, sour sough croutons, all dressed in a tangy vinaigrette - could've had 3 bowls of this quite happily for lunch); followed by "roast chicken" (a chunky strip of chicken breast with perfectly crispy skin, as well as 2 sizesble chunks of dark meat, served atop a bed of sweet corn with a few cut baby zuccinis and mini onions, dotted with a bit of slightly spicy red pepper paste, as well as two dollops of a creamy, white almost-too-sweet sauce - this sweet sauce unnecessary to me as the corn was sweet on its own); ending with melon-strawberry-blasamic dessert (cannot adequately describe this other than to say it was really, really good) with tea service. Everything was beyond delicious, including the warm, fresh foccacia bread (no amuse served at lunch). Have dined at MB many times, and this met my expectations. I assume that a dinner version of the roast chicken main course would consist of a larger portion of meat. The only misstep was with service: On the way to being seated, I conveyed to the hostess that my dining companion was not going to be joining me after all, and that I would be dining alone. I was seated, and served bread almost immediately, and I then sat for 30 minutes to enjoy the bread until I flagged my waiter and surprised *him* with the news that I was dining alone, after which service proceeded very smoothly. Looking forward to returning.

A little pricey but worth it. The presentation of each dish was impeccable and impressive. We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and my future daughter in law' and we were all impressed with everything... a beautiful place to dine overlooking a relaxing garden. The outside dining is well equipped should it rain, be a little fresh or a little too warm.

Always enjoy brunch at Maison Boulud but perhaps the wait staff had an off day. Service was way sub par; from waiting for menus way too long, to forgetting to bring things we ordered, it was not from our most enjoyable dates. But it was one time as every other time service had been excellent.

Restored my faith in the Montreal dining scene and went far beyond. This was a delightful meal, starting from the moment we were seated in chairs far more comfortable than the norm, and in a terrace with garden views (including of the ducks being fed!) Staff went way beyond the norm: our party had a celiac and a shellfish allergy, both of which they took very seriously without making it feel like an issue. Food was inventive, artful, and delicious; this was really a stellar experience all around. Thanks, folks.
[If I had to pick on something, I'd critique the wine list for being heavily skewed to the expensive; but the bottom-of-range wine we had was very good, so it's a pretty small quibble!]

this is a lovely restaurant and the location is fantastic. The service is elegant and refined. Unfortunately, it was disappointing to see Bluefin tuna on the menu which is a fish species that is nearly extinct - I would have hoped that a restaurant of this caliber would have a heightened interest in sustainability.

You want for nothing. Food, service, wine paring with your exquisite meal that is more like a work of art with flavours that need to be experienced. This can only be accomplised by experienced chefs and staff who enjoy their position. Enjoy this experience.

From start to finish our dinner at Boulud was fantastic! Portions are not big and it is expensive but each dish we ordered was delicious. We had a lovely server. Eating outside was beautiful. Really a lovely place for a special occasion. We were celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary. A really wonderful dining experience.

The Salade Nicoise with Tuna was inadequate in every sense.
Far too small a portion for the money charged and the tuna was overcooked.
Very disappointing. $205 for two people with one glass of wine each for lunch!! I would have no trouble paying that amount of money if the value was there but in this case, I felt almost violated.

We dined at Maison Boulud while visiting Montreal over our anniversary. There are two spaces in the restaurant, a darker low lit dining area, and a bright more summerly conservatory room - each with a different atmosphere. We opted for the taster menu which was chef's choice. It was geared more towards seafood dishes and that suited us perfectly. The food was impeccable and the wine pairings were excellent. It is rather expensive, but this is a refined dining experience. I think they get the balance just right with service that is highly professional, yet both friendly and informative.

Our group of 5 went for Sunday brunch and it was an awesome experience! Ask for a table on the terrace near the water, there are live white ducks and it's gorgeous. Very comfortable seating and the perfect amount of shade. Food was exceptional as expected - brunch option was either a 2 or 3 course meal (NOT a buffet). Service was attentive without being fussy - little details such as setting down plates or removing plates at the same time was appreciated. Worth every penny!

Terrible Terrible Food! The pan seared fois gras was so disgusting in smell and taste that I took two bites and pushed it aside, as did my dining companion. The rack of lamb was as tough as a boot and the flavor dreadful. The wine waiter recommended a $500 bottle of wine, which I accepted, but I have and better $20 bottles of red compared to this. This restaurant is an example of The Emperor Has No Clothing!

I was looking for a special dinner for the last night of vacation, and Maison Boulud did not disappoint. The food was great, especially the tuna - my wife and I both thought it was one of the best tuna dishes we've eaten. The wine list is quite good as well. On a busy night, it can get a little lively in the restaurant, but we were seated out by the garden. It was beautiful, and great for a romantic dinner.

what a treat to have Brunch at the Boulud; they were very nice to set us up in a quiet room for 6 as we were with elderly people
the prices of food are fair for the variety & tastes but alcohol is somewhat too expensive
kir royal at 32$ a glass ?!!!!! PLEASE! i had never paid so much for that....
unfortunately the total of the bill stays with you longer than the taste of the food...

Having gone to Boulud a number of times over the past year, the quality of the restaurant is consistent. The menu has barely changed over the past year, and the hostess seems a bit tired and uninterested in her function. The wait staff get top notes.
The atmosphere in the garden is among the main draws.

Great food! The escargot was especially delicious, your version was by far the best I've tried. Thank you for honouring our request in ensuring safe and delicious food for my children with food sensitivities. You guys are fantastic!
