Boulevard: very nice for romance,nice for families, small groups, foodies. The bar is active but doesn't im[act the diners. A winner all around.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingVisited San Francisco for the first time and booked a table in advance. Was the best restaurant we went to in out 8 night visit. Nice staff, great food!!!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDeserves its reputationThis place, albiet a bit on the pricey side, absolutely deserves its reputation as one of the best restaurants in San Fran. Every dish we ordered was amazing and even the gluten free member of our party (due to extreme allergies) was totally satisfied with the choices as over 1/2 the menu was GF or could be altered slightly. With a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge and warm atmosphere, I will visit this gem if a restaurant again.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and drinksWe had a delicious dinner at Boulevard. The cocktails/wine and food were excellent. The service was also great. Would highly recommend.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Trip to San FranciscoThis restaurant was recommended by a friend and definitely was worth every bite! The food and service were exceptional (ask for Jeff). Both my husband and I had the Filet and it was "melt in your mouth" delicious. We also had the dark chocolate dessert with the lemon sorbet, this was an incredible delight for the palate. Definitely will eat here again when we visit San Francisco again!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTOP OF THEIR GAMEBoulevard continues to be one of the brightest spots in SF's restaurants scene. The food is innovative with "on the spot" seasonal selections, attentive & knowledgeable service, terrific wine selection served in an attractive and comfortable atmosphere.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantWe went on a Friday night. We had a 9:45pm reservation but when we arrived a couple hours early to relax at the bar, they had our table by 8pm. Service both at the bar and table was high end. The Filet Mignon was expensive but large and deserves to be highly rated. The ambience is both romantic and a bit energetic. A good combination. Overall, it's a top end restaurant.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our meal very much.We enjoyed our meal very much. The food was outstanding. The scallop appetizer and the fish (halibut and swordfish) were wonderful and the portions were generous. The wine list was amazing with many fine selections by the glass. Service was nice but wasn't as attentive as I thought it should be for a $200 (for two) dinner. The noise was louder than I would have liked but because we had a table off to the side it wasn't overwhelming. While we enjoyed the meal we probably wouldn't go back, preferring to try another place.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellant San Francisco Restaurant.Great Food and the best example of a great San Francisco Restaurant restaurant. Location, Ambiance, and the scene.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial TreatTook my admin out for her birthday luncheon. Boulevard did not disappoint. The food and service were outstanding. Will return.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding until.....As usual, appetizers, salads and entrees were divine. Can't say much about the dessert....an unusual flaw in the complete Boulevard experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with old friendsWe chose Boulevard because of its reputation. We were not disappointed. The service was superb and the food excellent. We had an excellent wine, as well. We were seated in a fairly quiet area so we could talk, but the restaurant is not very quiet!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFlood is excellent. We saveFlood is excellent. We save Boulevards for special occasions.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe left our hearts . . .Friends in Philadelphia (another great city for foodies!) recommended Boulevard highly, so we were pleased that we were able to make a reservation for a Sunday evening. The food, the wine, the service, the ambience -- all were superb, so we decided to return for our last evening's dinner in San Francisco, and we were equally pleased on that occasion.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA worthy destination restaurantVery busy restaurant and an early rez seems necessary, even for our rather late dining. But once seated at our table away from the busy bar and with a view of the now-lighted Bay Bridge, my wife and I felt very at ease and un-rushed. While perhaps not what you would call a romantic place, we found it easy to share conversation of a personal nature. Food and wine selections were ample and what you would expect, and the service and presentation surpassed our rather high expectations. Service was attentive and very professional, and left nothing to be desired. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorites in SF.One of my favorites in SF.

We started off sitting at a small bar table behind the bar and once we were able to get a seat at the bar, our amazing bartender was wonderful and made great recommendations. I had the hen and it was really tasty. Probably would have not tried it unless he suggested it.

Seemed to be toned down to suit the masses. Beautiful presentations and fantastic service.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBoulevard experienceWe decided to dine at Boulevard based upon family input as well as that of noted reviewers. We found all courses perfect and worthy of the praise. Of special accolade were the fish dishes.....the halibut and swordfish were exceptionally fine. The service was very attentive and the staff allowed us to experience a leisurely evening, as requested. Our wine, a Bordeaux Blanc, was enjoyable. We did, however, experience two moments of staff confusion: The wine steward delivered a non-ordered bottle of wine to our table, after our selected Bordeaux was opened, and commenced to initiate opening before we stopped him...he then departed to locate the correct table. Also, our server provided an initial incorrect bill with a $50 overcharge.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at BoulevardsWe have eaten at Boulevards several times and each time it is a wonderful experience with our food.

Spectacular view when the Bridge lights were turned on. Food was well-prepared. Classic American menu. Service was prompt and attentive. Somewhat noisy for my taste but probably just a vibrant atmosphere for most. Good place to take out of town visitors for a special meal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI was trying to impress myI was trying to impress my sister-in-law who was joining me for a quick trip in the Bay Area. She hasn't been to San Francisco proper and my plan was to show her some of the sights. The starting point I selected was the Boulevard. The food and service was spot on - a great start to a fantastic weekend.

First timers to this popular restaurant need to be aware, it's a busy and energetic venue. Extra bonus at Boulevard right now: night time view of the SF side of the Bay Bridge is spectacular with the addition of vertical LED lighting on the span.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove 'emMarvelous. A gorgeous view of the Bay Bridge, when not staring at the art nouveau decor.
We both had the filet mignon, which was served with an interesting, mildly spicy pepper and with caramelized mushrooms. Their drinks list is superb; I had a half-bottle of premier cru Gevrey-Chambertin, full-bodied enough for the steak, but light enough for the crab salad (we always look forward to that). My date had a Harmony, a nice, sweet, non-alcoholic drink.
Dessert? Super! Strawberries and (sour) cream, choc mousse, and choc creme brulee (yes, three desserts); a wonderful French soft cheese; and a glass of sweet wine from Burgundy. Such nice servers and bussers, too! Love Boulevard!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the best meal I'veThis was the best meal I've had at a restaurant in years.
