We had a very nice meal here. Great cocktails and also steak frites. Our son was accommodated well by the staff and really enjoyed the food and the experience. It is nice to have a great grown up meal where kids are also welcome. Will return soon.

Cafe Boulud is a nondescript hotel restaurant, with a bit of whimsy added by framed wooden spoons. It occupies a small area which gives it some intimacy. I had the Quenelle de Brochet, their signature dish, which has a mousse-like texture. It was outstanding. My daughter had the Linguini du Sud which was over-salted, and the clams were chewy. Not...

A friend and I met for dinner on March 1st. We started with the large beef tartar and shared it. It was classic and fantastic. We then shared the duck and Arctic char as mains again the meals were great. The cauliflower purée was fantastic with the char which was lightly crisp and moist. The duck was perfectly cooked, the...

I've written less than stellar reviews of this restaurant before. I'm happy to report that today's experience exceeded my expectations for food and service. Today I was attending a last minute business meeting on what would be a very busy brunch Sunday. The restaurant was very accommodating and seated us within 5 minutes of arriving. We were immediately asked if... More

My husband and I decided to have dinner here. We had a nice time but weren't wowed. Good wine selection and tasty fois gras. Enjoyed the magic of the profiteroles presentation. But the initial hostess welcome needs improvement. Advised by waiter to order more than we wanted and ended up not being able to finish half of my main. Definitely... More

I was seated immediately at the bar despite walking in at Cafe Boulud without a reservation. The bartender served me and he was very courteous and attentive. I had the Winterlicious menu - the portions were fair. The greens in the Salade Nicoise looked well-washed, fresh and clean. I liked the play of the denser elements like the potatoes and... More

a top end of dinner winterlicious, but this restaurant lives up to its expectation. food is presented and taste soft, feels enjoyable for your mouth. it offers an experience of different palate that you never know you had. if you want to adventure food through your mouth, this restaurant is one where your palate may be advanced and challenged.

Description
Located in the flagship Four Seasons Hotel Toronto, Café Boulud, by Chef Daniel Boulud, serves a soulful menu deeply rooted in French tradition, set in the style of a lively French brasserie, and inspired by Chef Daniel's family's meals in Lyon. The kitchen boasts a gleaming rotisserie-the only one of its kind in downtown Toronto-with both vertical and horizontal spits allowing for simultaneous cooking of meat, poultry, fish and vegetables. The menu features the best French classics, as well as unexpected items inspired by Chef Daniel's curiosity and love for travel. The playfully retro-modern restaurant designed by Martin Brudnizki, located in the iconic Yorkville neighborhood, includes a dining counter and private dining room for up to eight guests. The dining room is warm and comfortable, defined by a wraparound bar and intimate, low-banquette seating.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
