It is very nice. We had a lunch here on our honeymoon and a few years later we are back for the chowder in the sourdough bowl
Amazing food and service!
We came to this place late for our reservation and they handled it pretty well and had great customer service. Each of the staff members were courteous and took good care of us. The waiter was exceptional and patient due to us taking some time to order and enjoying our meal ... he would check on us regurlarly and gave us quality service. We enjoyed our evening and our meal. The prices are high for the quality.
Great service and food. Neat place with its market.
Went for a date night. It was nice. Good view of the bay and Sausalito. A bit loud inside. Food was good.
Great seafood dishes and drinks with a view of Alcatraz
It was pretty rad, it only took about 2 minutes to be served and the food was amazing. Our waiter was fabulous and extremely attentive. Will come again.
Prompt seating and a prime, window location with our OpenTable reservation.
Sourdough bread is baked downstairs at Boudin and was quickly on the table with whipped butter. Drinks followed shortly thereafter.
My guest thought the crab and corn chowder was extremely good. She was equally enthusiastic about the ahi tuna tartare which she declined to share. My baked petrale sole with garlic mash and spinach was exactly as ordered and my plate was emptied.
I would give 5 stars but for one small item. Our waiter was very competent but the person delivering our food spilled the chowder on the service plate and all over the soup spoon handle. It was obvious and should have gone back to the kitchen to be cleaned.
Overall, however, a good experience and we would visit again. That is my measure of success at a restaurant.
Had Thanksgiving dinner special. It was fantastic. Sour dough stuffing was awesome. Serving portions were just like being home on Thanksgiving. So much so, I had to pass on dessert.
Great crab louie today.
Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Hits the spot!
Fantastic, delicious and quick.
A very good experience ,quality food excellent service and very hospitable staff,thank you.So good we have booked again tonight.
Lousy food. Fish had bone in it.
Service was horrible- slow and not attentive. Food portions were lite to average for price. Chowder was warm not hot.
Our last night in San Fran and this was certainly an amazing place to enjoy. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. Must try the fish!!! And the goat cheese
Good service. Food was average.
We love the bistro. Hard to find a quality place in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf. Great for first time visitors to Sf, because they have the full bakery downstairs. The food quality is excellent and service is generally very good.
It was my wife's birthday, and we had eaten at Boudin before and enjoyed it. The experience started well, with a competent, helpful waiter, and out starter was served in good time. Unfortunately it all went downhill from there. Our main course was delivered just after the starter, leaving us with the option of trying to eat both at the same time or leaving the starter altogether. I presume this had nothing to do with the waiter, but rather with kitchen staff. Unfortunately it ruined my wife's birthday dinner.
A few steps from the overly touristy chains of Pier 39, this is a good place for seafood with a view. There is a nice variety of dishes and the prices aren’t bad for San Francisco.
The service was lacking. The waiter seemed annoyed with every request we made.
Waiter was worst service I have ever experienced!!!
When we arrived, the host claimed he couldn’t find our reservation from OpenTable despite having a confirmation code. We waited 15 min for a table. Waitress over worked and only visited our table twice. Food however was very good.
We had reservations, seated us ASAP In a large corner booth...unfortunately near a screaming toddler! Waited over 30 minutes for our waiter...Michael .....to even come over and acknowledge us and then another 10 mins to bring our drinks.....didn't bother to bring bread until we asked for some....came 5 mins before our meal. Our waiter was very awkward, not personable at all! Probably should have stuck to the downstairs cafe where we could have ate 1 hour earlier. Very Disappointed in our visit. Won't be back or refer to the restaurant only cafe!!
Excellent and delicious Dungeness crab sandwich on sourdough bread.!And that is why every time I come to San Francisco I always eat here!
Server was not genuine. Difficult to decipher if his demeanor was condescending or part of his stoic personality. Despite this, was decent at remembering to refill the beverages as they ran low. Constantly checked back at us, but engaged much more frequently with the table beside us. No even distribution of friendliness. I’ve been here before and dine often so I know what good service is. I’m pretty chill and have low expectations, but even at that, service fell short of the norm. I suppose since gratuity is automatically included in a party of 8, there is no incentive for the wait staff to exceed expectations. The worst part of the evening was when we asked Bistro Boudin staff for an extra bowl, he replies “I’m not able to help you with that, you need to ask your server.” and he ventures off into another area chit chatting with another coworker. Would come back for the food but would easily not recommend the place for the service this evening.
Our server was a bit inexperienced, but was pleasant and gave decent service. Food was great, setting was nice.
Reliably good lunch in the heart of fisherman’s ward.
Great place with excellent service and consistently good food.
Very good service however the room was really hot!! Great food.
John was very nice serving us
Great service and the crab Mac and cheese was so good!
Very disappointed with our dinner and service. Waiter kept apologizing, but didn’t make any attempt to improve dinner.
Went for a day in the City. Gerry ride to pier 41, short walk to the Bistro, and then on to ballet. I recommend eating up stairs at Bistro, better views and quieter venue. The bread bowls looked delicious and was certainly popular.
Celebrate my birthday 😍 everything was special.
Appetizer arrived after the main course. Service was not coordinated. One meal was room temperature. Would not recommend for the price.
I was expecting more but it was fine. This was nothing special.
Surprised family with dining options ...great to know favorite sourdough bakery has a full restaurant !!! And validated parking !!!
Food is slightly on the pricey side, but not bad. The service was pretty good. It's lively but not loud. I had the margherita pizza and my husband had the clam chowder bread bowl. Both were delicious. The bakery itself is pretty cool! You can walk around upstairs and see the whole operation through windows above the bakery. Definitely worth checking out.
