We love this place as always. Every time, if we have friends coming to visit the bay area, we must bring them here to enjoy the yummy food and the amazing bread museum. Very educational and fun experience for all!
Absolutely no complaints. Food top notch, wouldn’t change a thing.
Poor food and very poor service
Restaurant very turistic with normal food! The menu is very extensive, this is a good place for turist, but San Francisco has better restaurants to go out!
Great service and food. Their pizza was very good. The views looking out over Fishermen's Wharf were stunning. We recommend.
The restaurant is located at Fishermans Wharf in one of the busiest sections. Because of the bakery below, it is very crowded and noisy. There were long waits to use the restroom as well. However, the food was excellent and the restaurant itself had a nice ambiance.
Love this place. One of the most incredible views of Alcatraz. The Clam Chowder in their freshly made sour dough bread bowls is a must. My wife loved her Crab Louie salad made with fresh rock crab meat. I had the fish/shrimp & chips combo which was great. We took our waiter's suggestion on which bottle of wine we should get along with the crab & spinach appetizer. We will be back.
I had been to Boudin Bakery’s marketplace cafe, but this was my first time dining in the Bistro. My server was very upfront about the menu, noting a couple of entrees that “are not our specialties”. The cioppino was delicious. It’s a fun place with views of San Francisco’s Fusherman’s Wharf Definitely worth a repeat visit.
Our waitress was very nice and helpful. I always enjoy eating here when I visit San Francisco.
Fish and chips were amazing, best we’ve had! Crab Mac and cheese also very good.
Food was great. Took a while for drinks refill (about 5 minutes after entree arrived).
Our favorite spot on the wharf. Get the crab and corn bisque in a bread bowl--it will not disappoint!
Food too salty, menu not interesting, food too expensive, table without a good view of the water. Waiter was nice.
We were there for the bread . The food was ok. Bread bowl was good the clam chowder was gooey - somewhat flavorless. Crab cake sandwhich was ok. The dressing and lettuce masked what little flavor it had. View was awesome. Service was wonderful. The kitchen was working with some pretty bland ingredients
Overall, I enjoyed this place. The bread they set out on our table was very cold, and if it weren't for that, this would be an easy 5 stars. The prices weren't too bad compared to what I expected after reading reviews. They handled my reservation perfectly and had a seat with a nice view ready for me!
great venue for special day. a must do again. The crab omelette was excellent
Made reservations for 8pm for a special occasion. Still very busy when we got there but our waitress was attentive and noise level wasn’t too bad. Food was delicious but portions were smaller than expected, especially given the price. Our ahi tuna tartar was great but the size was very tiny given the price. Great atmosphere (large restaurant but cozy) and we had a great view of the Bay. And the bread is always fantastic!! Would return!
Great place to grab lunch while visiting pier 39 and Fisherman’s Wharf!
a nice place to have clam or crab chowder
Great food. Good service. Exceptional views. Just perfect!
My 13-year-old son and I were visiting SF for a 4-day trip and Boudin is where we chose for dinner on night one. He ordered fish and chips and I the clam chowder bread both. Both were fantastic, and for the rest of the trip my son kept mentioning how great Boudin was. Truthfully, he probably also liked to feel as if he knew how to speak French, too! Sitting by the window overlooking the wharf action was fun, and we headed to Musee Mechanique (an antique and vintage video game arcade) afterward to top off a wonderful evening. Thank you!
Good food, service and ambiance conducive to conversation! Definitely recommend.
Upstairs much nicer than downstairs bar/cafe
Good food - large portions
A must visit for any vacation to San Francisco - we loved it !!!
The food was very good.
Things were fine but nothing stood out to bring us back. It’s a typical tourist restaurant which is fine because what else would we expect. Nothing was particularly bad just not special. Our waiter was VERY forgetful which seared on us a little by the end..
The only issue we found was that the Request ex bottle of wine was unavaiable and the waiter was not informed
Prices are too high - but then it is San Francisco. Clam Chowder is always good. Iceberg lettuce with eggs, bacon was not as refreshing as it had been on a previous visit. Bacon was burned and lettuce was not cold.
Less then average food. The calm chowder was a huge disappointment
Good experience , good food and excellent service .
Had a breathtaking windowed view of Alcatraz and the Warf from where we were seated. The service was phenomenal and the food was equally splendid.
This was our third time dining at Bistro Boudin. The food is good and the service is good. It’s a little noises at times, but this is a tourist area of town so it’s to be expected. The walk to the restaurant is nice and breezy so it’s always fun to see the water and sunset.
Dined at Boudin in December of 2016 and it was wonderful. Went back again on 7/15/18 for dinner and it was terrible. The restaurant used to serve a warm basket of their famous sourdough bread before your meal. This time it was cold, thin slices. My wife and I both ordered a salad and the crab cake. The salads were fine, but the crab cakes were mushy (bordering on runny) and undercooked on the inside and burnt on the outside. My wife sent hers back, it was so bad. We'll never go back.
The service was perfect, and my dinner was perfect. My daughter wasn't too happy with the clam chowder, but she is 9 and the waiter quickly had her pizza out and removed the chowder from the bill, which I did not ask for. He took it upon himself. I can't wait to go back. It was a lovely mother daughter dinner out.
Great food and service. Would highly recommend this restaurant to any one visiting Fisherman’s Warf.
Had a fantastic server who was attentive and very polite. We had a great time.
Chicken was not their forte but all was good
My mother and I were visiting on vacation. The Dungeness Crab Louis was fantastic. Great service and a delicious meal complete with Boudin sourdough bread.
Disappointed: I've had the crab louis before and it was very good and filling - this time it was still good but small, with a good amount of crab, a few large asparagus spears, a few slices of tomato and a little lettuce. When I saw this coming to our table I thought it was someone's appetizer, it was so small and for $27.95, not worth the cost. The other entrees (sandwiches) were fine and I still will go back, just won't order the crab louis again.
Fantastic experience!! Great view, good service, great food!!
Service was terrible. Salad never came entree arrived first. Waited a long time to finally get it correct. Waiter never even checked in.
Crab chowder was not as good as past visits
