An excellent choice for a special occasion. I recommend reservations an hour before sunset at a table with an ocean view, so one can enjoy the sunset towards the end of dinner.

A convenient place for a healthy, well-prepared breakfast at the Ferry Building, especially for business. Prices are high for moderate portions, but quality is good and ambience is lovely, with large windows overlooking the Bay. No standard breakfast items and a very limited menu, but delicious options such as poached eggs with crispy bacon on a bed of well-seasoned collard greens. (Toast has to be ordered separately.)

Although the quality of the food here remains outstanding the dining area itself could use major upkeep. Lights are out, flower arrangements were really faded, menus were wrinkled and food stained and chair covers were worn through. The service is not as caring as it should be for the prices charged. We were served but not in a very timely manner. Other diners looked disappointed by a long wait for food as well. Not sure if dogs can still be accommodated in outdoor area on Sat with the farmers market so close. Will return but not a first destination choice

I had a few fabulous lunches in BL, but this supper was a disappointment. The cabbage soup was watery and barely warm.

When we arrived, we were offered the choice of a seat inside or outside of the restaurant. We chose to sit outside; there was a lovely view of the waterfront but also a lot of construction noise going on nearby. I ordered the scrambled eggs for breakfast; they were extremely creamy and smooth.

Had a wonderful time, and unbelievably great food, at Boulette's Larder. The restaurant, Boulette's Larder, is on the bay side of the building, while Boulibar is on the inside/Ferry Bldg. The restaurant is casual/elegant; but Boulibar also looked super fun and a bit darker, more casual. We had champagne, the beet/hummus appetizer and the broccoli rabe pizza - the pizza was to die for mmmm. I took two slices home; is it possible it was even better on day 2? I will most definitely be back!

We had eaten lunch at Boulibar about 4-5 years ago and the food was very tasty and fresh, and there was a crowd there as well. We had dinner a couple of nights ago and we were quite disappointed that the quality has dropped considerably. We should have guessed because we were the only customers! We had the mezza of grilled octopus (good) but our marguerita pizza was soggy, filled with way too much tomato sauce, and not particularly hot. I will say our waiter was pleasant and the ambiance is lovely. So sad about the food though.

People are lovely, setting is ikea cute. To be honest while the food was interesting and good it was a bit elaborate for brunch/breakfast, though definitely thought out and well executed. Overall there is an impression that the whole thing was set up to impress yuppies and suburban urbanites. Don’t get the coffee it was single sourced from the Mississippi in low tide.

If you’re looking for a simple breakfast/brunch with good ingredients, this is not that.

Eating at Boulette's Larder is always very satisfying. The food is cooked with lots of soul and love, whether it is the signature scrambled eggs for breakfast and brunch, or the most tender duck breast for lunch or dinner. The salads are exceptional and the pizza one of the best in town. Every detail is taken care of. The ambiance is warm and beautiful. There is always a magnificent flower arrangement that adds a lot to the ambiance.

The beignets were perfect, light and not too sweet. The strawberries and chantilly/meringue were delicious. I really enjoyed my duck in combination with the figs and nectarines. My daughter actually ate her vegetables in her pasta dish which is unusual for her! Our only critique was the service was very slow -- the patrons next to us were seated after us yet received their entrees before us. My children were bored because the meal took so long to arrive but it was still worth the wait for me.

Though the food was excellent, the service was relaxed (not in a good way) and the prices were outrageous. When you pay $135 for breakfast for two adults and two children with no alcohol, it should be a positive memorable experience - and it wasn’t. While the two kids at our table became crankier and crankier I watched our server chill with his coffee as I tried to get his attention and remind him we’d asked for toast and a bowl of berries to come to us quickly to cure a few rumbly tummies. Sadly those items came after our main course, 20 minutes and two near temper-tantrums post order. Speaking of agitated, we had to ask twice for our coffee as the sun beat down upon us - there are no umbrellas outside, so you might want to request an indoor table (which sort or defeats the purpose of eating at the bay, eh?). Tourists - check out the market bar at the ferry bldg, or go to the mission for tartine or universal, eat well, enjoy good service at a reasonable price, then head to the ferry bldg, but skip the once wonderful boulettes.

Our waiter provided terrible service (we didn't catch his name but he was wearing a blue shirt) - and like others who reviewed (who maybe had the same waiter?), we also sat for 20 minutes with only water on the table while this completely disinterested waiter completely ignored our table without even an acknowledgement of any kind much less orders for drinks or food. When we finally were able to put in an order, they were brought to the table with no idea of who had what and just dropped on the table. Though it was a busy Saturday morning, really no excuse for such contemptuous service from a rude waiter.
