My hubs and I dropped in for a late dinner. The hostess was attentive seating us almost immediately and providing us with ice water. Our waiter came by to answer questions but could not make any recommendations because “everything is good.” We eventually decided on...More

We ordered seafood tower for two and roasted octopus as starters, and roasted cod and sablefish . All seafoods were fresh and taste good, the food presentation was also good. Desserts also quite ok. Services was excellent.

Feeling a little gun-shy after a visit to Santa Monica, where two salads and half a banana cream pie cost 100$ for lunch......but what a surprise, here. This restaurant is counted among the best in Canada and rightly deserves it. We ate pure bliss: oysters...More

We experienced first class dining at The Boulevard Kitchen during our visit to Vancouver. Amazing food and impeccable service. We also got to try some amazing wine from Okanagan. Highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion but reservations are a must.

We had a great meal here. The fish was excellent and the service was superb. Wine selection was very nice. I was a little worried about attire, but I was in jeans and fit in great. Very nice overall!

I found the food not that great, slow to arrive, and too salty. Simply not worth it at half the price, I started with the charred octopus, I asked if it was more charred or roasted and was told roasted. I ordered it and everything...More
