I used to visit the bakery as a kid and it has changed completely! It has gone from a small bakery to a full fledge business with restaurant, gift store and awesome bread displays. We ate at the Bistro and the food was delicious from the surf and turf to the beef stew, there are great options for all tastes. The drinks and jazz group added to the sounds of the wharf and people going by at sunset from our balcony table.

Another great experience at Bistro Boudin! We were celebrating my sister-in-law and husband's 40th wedding anniversary and the service, the food and the ambiance were excellent as always! I had forgotten what chimichurri is, and it was served over my "perfectly cooked" filet mignon and my lobster. What a great addition to my meal! I have to admit that I was expecting it to be spicy and be disappointed, but NO! It was the original chimichurri! A BIG applause to the Chefs. You will see us again and again when we bring out-of-town guests or when we just want a good meal in a fun environment. By the way they also enjoyed the Boudin Museum. A perfect evening!

ガーリックが苦手だっいうと頼めるメニューは3つしかないと強要してきて不快極まりなかった。
接客態度が悪く最初から最後まで、最悪だった。

The waiter took forever to get our drinks and to even get to our table to introduce himself. I was disappointed especially because of how much money the bill was. It just wasn’t worth it. However, they do have an amazing crab cake.

The server was polite and expeditious with our orders. Needless to say, the food/bread was extraordinary. Each of us ordered different lunches (pizza, chowder bowl, salmon, steak sandwich) and all of us were overwhelmed by the portions and the flavor. ps - we loved the bread so much that some of us took a few loaves home and some ordered online to have it delivered back to the East Coast.

Food always amazing my boyfriend and I always stop here when we visit from San Diego. Only downside is yet again the women’s bathroom was flooded out. Had to wait over 10 mins to use the restroom, the line was right in the way of a large parties table and main walkway. Other than that always enjoys the bread tour and soup and bread bowls!

Everything was fine except the sliced sourdough bread in the basket. The bread crust was hard and we couldn't eat it. We asked for fresher bread and were told that that was all there was.

Made a reservation as we came in to town but wished we had waited and just took a chance with so many choices of restaurants available. Host were great, waiter not so good. I think he was having a bad night and didn’t want to be there or he thought we didn’t look like big tippers. He was right in this case, usually tip above average but was not tended to very well and felt rushed. Amaretto sour was really good, steak was good, chicken was good, lobster was ok, bread was ok.

Our experience was very good overall. Our table had a great view if Alcatraz & was in a separate room at the back of the restaurant where it was less chaotic - perhaps a benefit you get when you make a reservation. The only small issue was that either the server forgot to order 1 of our meals or the kitchen missed it & there was no reduction to our bill offered. My family was basically finished eating by the time my food arrived. It wasn’t that big a deal, but I was surprised that they offered nothing to compensate.

Very disappointed to find a portion of the rubber glove in my crab chowder. The restaurant should have comped both lunches. It was really gross.
Was told the worker making chowder dropped into the pot. Poor excuse.

Boudinはカフェやショップが一階にあり、ビストロは二階になります。今回滞在中にビストロにディナー、ランチと二回行きました!ディナーが美味しかったので、帰国日にランチに再訪しました。

まず、ディナーはとても人気なので時間節約のためには予約は必須です。本アプリから簡単に予約でき、入口で名前を伝えるだけですぐに席へと案内されました。

フィッシャーマンズワーフ目の前になりますので、外側や窓側席が人気となります。予約の際にリクエストコメントしておくと良いです。

料理はボリュームが多いため、2人なら前菜やスープとメインの2品で十分です。今回はメインを2品にしたところ、大変美味しかったですが、あまりのボリュームに完食できませんでした。ただ、ディナーの際はメインを頼むと5ドルでクラムチャウダーも付けられるためお得です。通常は15-20ドル近くします。

料理はクラムチャウダーは外せません!
あとはリゾットとパスタにしましたが、どちらも最高に美味しかったです。

価格はお酒を入れて2名でディナーだと100ドル強、ランチで60ドルくらいでした。日本だとそれなりですが、フィッシャーマンズワーフ周辺のレストランでは平均的な価格となります。

雰囲気も味もよく、またサンフランシスコに行く際は絶対利用したいと思います。
