Met my sister there for a light dinner. We both ordered the French onion soup and decided to wait and see how full we were before we ordered our next course. The soup lacked flavor as well as onions. Lots of bread. We should have probably ordered the chowder. Our server wasn't overly attentive but the other staff was quite helpful. I suggest serving their famous sourdough warm. Accommodations were lovely and the restaurant is well maintained.
The service was TERRIBLE. The waiter forgot bread and drinks and would come over and laugh about it and come back minutes later- still no bread/drinks. He also tossed the small ketchup onto the table which bounced and hit one of us.
Once we got our drinks, they were never refilled even though waiter kept saying he’d be right back.
Food was a little cold. We were seated first in our area, ordered first, but received food last. Seemed like it had been sitting out for a awhile.
There are many other seafood places in walking distance that are better. Food is not that good also vegetable lasagna is not a can of mixed chomp vegetables between weird dough topped with dry grated cheese. Google it or take it off menu. The free bread crust is super tough. At bubba gump enjoying seafood now
A bit overpriced but the location and ambiance made up for it. My steak was excellent.
Excellent customer service and food is delicious
Great Food and Service!
We had a lovely time at Bistro Boudin. The food was great (especially the clam chowder and the dessert), and the service was impeccable. Additionally, we had a great seat at the window where we were able to look out on San Francisco bay while we dined. Overall a great experience.
We are returning customers and were not disappointed. They sat us immediately and didn't rush us to leave. We had visitors from out of town and this was the perfect lunch lactation.
Restaurant was great. Food was very tasty. Service was great ! View was awesome. Great place to eat. Thanks again.
Good as always, but the wait staff tends to be a bit full of themselves.
We were on vacation and were looking forward to trying the famous sourdough bread!
The food was excellent but our server was not very attentive.
Decent. Been better
I booked a reservation to celebrate my Anniversary, I specifically asked for a window view in my reservation and didn’t get that, I asked for any special dessert recommendations for our Anniversary and nothing was recommended. Our Anniversary wasn’t even acknowledged by our waitress. The food was great! But, for the amount of money I spent and I booked the reservation in advance based on good reviews. I would not make another trip to your restaurant.
we were visiting from out of town and wanted an iconic san francisco experience and got what we wanted plus some. Food was good albit a bit pricy but overall a great experience.
Great service from Tom, our waiter! Loved the crab Louis and fish and chips!
We arrived and were seated promptly, but then left sitting for over 20 minutes before another server that wasn't in our section noticed that we hadn't been attended to. He tried to fix the error, but we would have expected more as the restaurant was not terribly busy. The overall experience was forgettable. The food was just alright for the price. We won't likely return on our next trip to San Francisco.
Had a great lunch and our waiter John was incredible. He was attentive, recommended, items on the menu, and was always there when we need him. Food was great, and the view at the wharf was great!!!
Clam chowder sourdough bread bowl is a must.
Lovely evening at Bistro Boudin, delicious reasonably-priced food, great view of waterside and Fisherman's Wharf, and excellent service by our lovely waiter Mario. Highly recommend this restaurant, especially the delicious clam chowder!
Very nice setting and ambience, great steaks, great wine line and excellent service. Great piece of heritage.
This restaurant is always a fun experience for tourists. The service is friendly and attentive. The only drawback is the long line to the ladies room. But the facilities were acceptable with amount of traffic, possibly from the cafe below or the street.
Service was a bit slow but to be expected on a Monday. Food was excellent
Fun, a little touristy. Great food, large portions. Overall a perfect San Francisco experience.
I went to this restaurant because they are famous for their iconic sour dough bread. The whole place smells like delicious fresh baked bread. The ovens vent onto the sidewalks luring you inside.
Upon being seated, a basket of cold chewy bread arrived to the table along with two pots of margerine to spread on to it. It wasn't even sour dough bread. Even though the restaurant is directly above a working bread bakery, we could not get warm bread brought to our table. The waiter claimed they didn't have any way of warming the bread available as a conveyor belt if fresh baked bread moved below us. He said he could microwave the chewy cold bread that he served. Yuck!
The food was ok and the service was great. Unfortunately the menu that showed online did not match the menu once we sat down. We should have got up and went downstairs to eat where it was more casual, less expensive, faster and more items that my friend liked. Oh well.
Excellent atmosphere, superb service, diverse food and drink menu. We chose this place to have quiet conversation and it was perfect!
Had my birthday lunch here and we all loved it, our server was really kind and he even gave me a delicious warm chocolate dessert with a candle in it. The food was delicious, I had the angel hair pasta with grilled prawns and it was fantastic. We would definitely come back.
Had the chowder bread bowl for dinner; very good.
Celebrated our first visit to San Francisco and our 36th Wedding anniversary with dinner here.
Food and service were very good but felt the prices were on the high side for what we had, although the view across the bay was priceless!
Would return without hesitation.
Took my friend for her first time to San Francisco
We have eaten here in the past. It is very good in an otherwise very touristy area.
A great place right on Fisherman’s Wharf, worth a visit , good value too
We had 830 reservations for 8 people. We go there at 810 and checked in. We didn’t get seated until 855. Seems a bit long to wait when we made reservations three days in advance. Once seated, our server was excellent and the food was super delicious.
We were in San Francisco celebrating our anniversary/my husbands birthday and decided to eat here on our last night. The fresh bread was amazing, I wish we had extra. We ordered the whole Dungeness crab for 1 and the filet mignon along with a cup of corn and crab chowder. The chowder was delicious (My first to try it). My husband and I split both the filet and the crab. The crab was delicious and made me wish we had ordered the crab for 2 instead of the filet. The reason I gave the food 4 stars instead of 5 was because I ordered my steak medium rare and it was definitely medium/medium well. So it was a little bit dry but was not worth complaining because the crab was so good it made up for the steak. Would highly recommend this place. We used open table around 5:30pm and were able to make a reservation for 7pm.
Excellent location with a nice view. It's always fun to take a walk above the bread factory. The bread, as you'd expect, is excellent. The remainder of the food, however, is only fair. The service was also fair.
Had a very good dinner. Second time we have been. Both times very good. Good value for tourist location. Whole grab and halibut were excellent.
It's a wonderful dining experience! The bread is really delicious! And the bread bowl is the most special dish I was ever taken!
Disappointed in the slow service and inattentive server. Food was average. Wished we would’ve eaten elsewhere in the Wharf.
