Never disappointedMy title either says it all or it says nothing. You will have to try the food to see if your direction in food matches mine. If so, you will find the meal exceptional.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA winner, once againOnce again, Boulevard proves its mettle as one of the "go to" restaurants for fine dining in San Francisco. The scallops appetizer, the pork tenderloin entree, the crab salad, we found all to be as good as expected. And, on our 25th wedding anniversary, it comped the desert and coffee. What a civilized experience.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMsource/presentationThe essence of this restaurant is farm to restaurant ingredients, wonderful preparation and presentation and extremely attentive and accommodating service. Delicious food in a lovely space.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMthe same, but differentAlthough many of the items on the menu appear to be the same (beet salad, pork chop, lamb), Boulevard succeeds in adding new and delicious twists.

The restaurant had been recommended by a friend when I told her it was our Anniversary and we would be in San Francisco. Our children found out where we would be dining and called the restaurant to order a bottle of wine to celebrate the occasion. The restaurant had the wine chilling at the table and had a card they had signed from our children.
It made the evening so special. They even wrote "Happy Anniversary" on our dessert. The food was fabulous and service was impeccable. It was a great experience!! I will be recommending this restaurant to everyone I know that is headed to San Francisco!!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was able to answerOur waiter was able to answer all of our questions with out hesitation.

We never miss eating here on a trip to SF.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFour For LunchHad not been here for a long time and had nearly forgotten what a pleasure it is. The garlic soup was sublime and I did not at all worry about whether I would offend my companions. All but one of us had seafood. The preparations were all perfect. The Apricot Ice Cream Bon Bon was just the right finale for the occasion. Service was attentive, professional, pleasant.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMParis in the SpringAlways a relaxed and elegant meal, fun for people watching!
We return frequently for the pampering...just slightly disappointed in the seafood this trip. Although the fishes were fresh, they were overcooked, and lacking any character, accompaniments and sauces were bland. We will, of course, still return and hope that this was just an anomaly, as we have come to feel a great love for Boulevard5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways exceptionalAlways an exceptional dinner. My salmon was perfectly prepared and the best rich flavor that only a fresh king salmon can provide. The wine suggestion was perfect for the two wine drinkers in the group.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLike a fine restaurant shouldLike a fine restaurant should be!!!

My husband insists on going back for the Kurobuta pork chop, and I can understand why. Service is professional but not stuffy. We appreciate the emphasis on local produce.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGrand BoulevardI loved the swordfish even though I rarely order threatened species. Rich and flavorful.

My friend and I were not disappointed. The stuffed calamari was delicious as was my main entree - the pork prime rib chop. My friend had the swordfish and loved it equally. Our waitress recommended a delicious bottle of Pinot Noir which complimented our meal fabulously. She even included a list of other local attractions (i.e. bars and nightlife hot spots) that were not to be missed. All in all, a fantastic experience and a restaurant I will recommend to others.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBoulevard Still the BESTAlways a dining pleasure at the Boulevard---great food, excellent service that makes you always feel comfortable and relaxed.

They were able to give us another table as the first one was really in the middle of a lot of traffic. My guest and I really appreciated that.
My second time there and I strongly recommend it.
Helpful sommelier. Wait staff seemed busy.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMBenicia Babe does the 100Boulevard is a great power lunch spot. Great service. I liked the pin stripped suits on the wait staff- it was a nice nod to the financial district.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always...great.Boulevard never disappoints with food or service. In a city where people are always looking for the newest, coolest spot, sometimes you forget that places like Boulevard should be a regular dining rotation. Top to bottom excellent.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't go wrong with this oneEverything was great; waiter was awsome, food was terrific. Portions were a bit small, but light and awsome flavors. Not a big dessert menu, but what was there tasted great. Great view of the Bay Bridge. Highly recommend it.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved itI can't say enough about Boulevard. My friend and I really enjoyed this restaurant. Everything was outstanding. The food was delicious and the service impeccable. Would definitely recommend to anyone.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, great food preparedAs always, great food prepared by an award winning chef. Lives up to its accolades. The desserts are creative and unusually delicious.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantly AmazingI only recently became aware of this place through friends that decided to treat me for my birthday in January. Since then I have been back twice and left extremely satisfied and slightly giddy even, if that makes any sense.
The food is amazing. period. Making the trip up to the city from San Jose is not that big of an ordeal if i know im dining at Boulevard. I feel that the menu is reasonably priced for the portions and flavors. I've never once thought the plating an items were a mis-step.
as for the service and building itself. both are excellent.
i had to shorten my review because of the maximum character limit. just make sure to give this place a try if you want a minor splurge one night, about 100$ a head.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentFood was wonderful as was the presentation - a work of art.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLived up to the hype!Try everything and anything on the menu. This place is amazing. Beautifully presented with unusual, but harmonious and fresh ingredients, this was a feast for the eyes and soul. The Nettles soup was rich and flavorful. The tuna tartare was light, without the usual over-powering soy. Tried the buffalo mozzarella salad and the beet salad - very good. Also had the lamb, and halibut. Perfect sear on the halibut, but still firm and flaky. Lamb was done to a perfect medium rare. Highly recommend!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointsMet a friend for a belated birthday lunch. Outstanding. We enjoyed everything Service was Great.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBoulevard!I have treasured the many meals I have enjoyed at Boulevard. I enjoy the lively atmosphere, delightful fresh food, and wonderful service. Your fresh bread is sheer delight, and the fish dishes are lovingly prepared with terrific ingredients. I will return with certainty every time I come to San Francisco.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWine ListMy dining experience was outstanding. The wine list was dominated by French Wines. I am a South African wine producer and your restaurant was recommended to me by an Australian wine producer. I was in town to promote our wines. I hope that you will consider adding a few (more) South African wines to your list.(I only saw 1 SA wine on the very extensive wine list).5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMProfessional ServiceThe consistently knowledgeable,friendly and accommodating service at Boulevard has always been impressive, that and the
exceptional cuisine are the reason for my continuous patronage.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionIt was a perfect evening. The food was amazing and the service, excellent. I cannot wait to return to Boulevard.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBoulevard is amazing! FromBoulevard is amazing! From the service to the food, it is worth every penny. The staff made this Mother's Day very special for us. Highly recommend the scallops and stuffed calamari to start, and swordfish, halibut and lamb for entrees. The coffee and dessert were also very good, we had the red velvet cake.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant. ItI love this restaurant. It is always full but you are treated as if you're the only people there. Food is amazing!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBoulevard: 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 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 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 AMexcellant San Francisco Restaurant.Great Food and the best example of a great San Francisco Restaurant restaurant.
