BostonDiner's Reviews
 
Sister restaurant to the popular New York and London locations, Bar Boulud, Boston at Mandarin Oriental, Boston is a French-inspired bistro and wine bar located in the heart of Back Bay on Boylston Street. Chef Daniel Boulud and Chef de Cuisine Aaron Chambers offer locally inspired seasonal dishes, traditional French bistro fare and an impressive selection of famed house-made terrines and pâtés by Parisian Charcutier, Gilles Verot. Additionally the menu features a handful of signature sausages and burgers, adding an American touch to this French inflected bistro and wine bar. An impressive wine cellar spotlights wines from Burgundy and the Rhóne Valley , including many fine selections by the glass. The interiors are inspired by a contemporary take on the craft of winemaking to create a comfortable and welcoming surrounding for a unique and intimate experience. Bar Boulud serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, all-day dining is also available at the bar. Walk-ins are encouraged.

"Bar Boulud provided food and service way above what earlier reviews criticized. Service was attentive and timely, but not intrusive. Noise level was lively but comfortable for conversation. The items we ordered were delicious -- onion soup broth was especially flavorful. Only weak spot was the Caesar Salad -- the dressing was not pleasant and was a long way from Caesar Dressing, and the small 'heads' of romaine had too much core and too little leaf."
