I requested a table on the water side and called and confirmed that and then we did not get a table on the water side. Disappointing.
Really enjoyed our meal there. Great view, ambience and food .
Clam chowder in a bread has been their specialty and we visited them again to enjoy that together with the oysters, and some other sea foods. This time I feel that the amount of the chowder is less than expected and the quantitative balance between the chowder and the bread was not good. Moreover, the waiter was too busy and he did not present any smile.
We needed a hotel near our hotel for a family get together and this suited the bill. There are so many seafood restaurants near Fisherman's wharf and we found this to be a better option. The food was good and, obviously, the bread was excellent. Pricing was moderate. Service was excellent.
Used a Travelzoo voucher, so we got a great deal! Outstanding food, service and views. I'd definitely return.
Excellent food and service. Best fish and chips I ever had.
Travelzoo deal was no deal. Food was ok, but lukewarm, which isn’t very appetizing with scallops. Service was fine and server attempted to rectify situation with a remake of one of orders. Manager was clueless.
Great experience for our first time here. Food was great as well as the service.
As locals, we seldom dine at Fisherman’s Wharf, but Yahoo ran a promotional deal that brought us in, overall the experience was good, tasty goat cheese appetizer, well prepared scallops and pork belly, nice cocktails, the only mediocre thing was the Caesar Salad, it tasted as if it came out of a bag at Trader Joe’s. If in the area, we’d likely go back.
Great value through the TravelZoo site. The ambiance was good and service efficient. Could have been more personable though. Good attention paid to filling water glasses and bread basket. Limited but good selection of food items. The Caesar Salad lacked flavor so did the Petrale sole. bland. The Filet was done perfectly served on a large plate which made it look like there was something missing.
overall, the experience was pleasant and we will return.
Server forgot our appetizers. Never got them. However we had to ask for them to be removed from our bill. Soup and soup bowl were very good
Excellent views and great food! The vegetarian options did not disappoint either!
Bistro Boudin has delicious food, excellent service, and great views. Validated parking makes it convenient. There is a museum on the same floor as well as the Boudin gift store downstairs. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
Kenya our server was fabulous! My filet mignon was cooked perfectly and mashed potatoes best I've had in a very long time.
Pleasantly surprised by this tourist spot. Food was excellent quality. I had the scallops which was cooked perfectly. It was served with pork belly... divine combination. Beef stew was reported by the husband to be very good and tender. My kids loved the crab Mac n cheese. Server was attentive and pleasant. Chowder with bread bowl was excellent. I would have liked it to be more piping hot.
Excellent food, excellent service, and a lovely view of the Bay from our table.
Excellent customer service. Our server Carla was excellent and very attentive.
The food and quality were as expected. Pricey but not surprising for a tourist locale. However service was terrible. Our server was not attentive; we had to flag him down several times for water and in fact, ended up requesting help from another server. The food came late and there was no attempt to explain or asked if we needed anything else.
I've personally visited Boudin Bistro several times before. This last meal was the best (and most expensive) one yet. We had world-class service and zero complaints. Tremendous food, and a wonderful experience.
Such a wonderful find in San Francisco! If you take the time to go upstairs, the food rivals any 5 star restaurant around!! The wine list has been carefully curated by Kellie, the amazing General Manager! We also enjoyed one of the best happy hours!! We went 4 nights in a row and enjoyed the tastiest , freshest oysters on the half shell!! Thank you Artie for your friendly, awesome happy hour service!!!
Great place for a good meal with excellent service and wonderful sour dough bread and rolls.
Went here for our anniversary tonight. Love crab and I love their sourdough so I thought this would be a fun place to go.
Our waiter was nice, but gone most of the time, they weren't busy really and we were checked on periodically. Our food took forever to get to us, almost an hour. A manager did apologize and said he kitchen had some confusion, however he didn't offer anything other than an apology.
I had the sole which was ok, very blah, nor flavorful at all, the spinach was the best thing on the plate. My husband had the scallops which were delicious.
Dessert was definitely not good and I would recommend skipping. Lava cake was not lava just cooked cake, nothing special by any means. Beignets we're gross crunchy a weird texture.
Overall lots they can do to improve. I also feel that there could be some improvement on the customer service side. If you ask how it is and I tell you it's not good and have barely touched it, perhaps ask what can be done to fix it?
Decent place considering it’s a bit touristy, waitress was a little sloppy but it was busy so that can be forgiven. Could do with a better beer selection considering this is California, however food cost performance was good so overall recommended
Avocado crab roll was fresh and unique. Meal took more than two hours so validated parking (a major plus for Fisherman's Wharf) was overtimed.
The spinach was very salty, the waiter was very slow at beginning of stay.
Our waitperson, John, was attentive and helpful. The seafood tacos were super yummy!
I had the crab Louie which was very good. The views are wonderful and the restaurant is very clean. I would highly recommend Bistro Boudin in SF.
On vacation in San Francisco and really looked forward to a great crab dinner. Unfortunately we had the worst waiter ever. He disappeared for long periods and was totally inattentive. He was also not knowledgeable about the fare and mostly mumbled and seemed bothered . There is no excuse for that kind of service. Sadly, this effected our dining experience and while the food was good we will never return in the future. There are too many choices in San Fran to have to deal with that.
had the travelzoo voucher for a 3-course dinner for 2. enjoyed our meal and we shared most of our dishes family style. the fried calamari was delicious and enjoyed my crab sandwich. portions were plentiful.
Great time. Must try bread bowls.
It was really great. Besides just having awesome bread and other food, it was a nice place to sit and chat as well.
Great place for dinner when in San Francisco. Nice view and great food.
We have been to Bistro Boudin a few times and have never been disappointed with the food or atmosphere.
Great location!!!! Great crab!! Great oysters!!!
Went here for Christmas Day dinner it was overbooked and terrible service.
A great surprise in fisherman’s wharf! The food was great and the restaurant was beautiful. The cost was reasonable considering the location. Would recommend for sure!
Pleasant experience. A bit pricey but given the location, ok.
The food was absolutely incredible!! We had a goat cheese appetizer with of course, some delicious sourdough bread. My husband at a steak which he devoured, and I had the crab mac and cheese which was to DIE for!!!! As a mac and cheese lover, this was one of my all-time favorites.
Great food. Definitely pricey but you are getting waterfront. Server was very attentive and friendly. Great drinks and visit!
