There is no place in San Francisco like Boulettes Larder--or the nation as I have yet to experience. It is the one place I return to every time I visit SF. Simply the best food ever

Breakfast was well done- poached eggs on a bed of greens, and served with homemade pita. This is a thoughtful kitchen, delivering good food that is unrushed.

I had reservations for the restaurant but when I got there I was told it was closed for an event and was taken to the bar. We were the only people there but the service was slow. Our pizza sat under a heat lamp for 10minutes befor the server remembered us. Overall a very bad experience. It was a date night for my husband and I which I planned. I was very disappointed!

For a $30 plate of scrambled eggs I am appalled at the service I received. The host was rude and told me I had made a reservation for the wrong number of people and apparently wrong location. When she realized she was mistaken, she ignored her fault and I received no apology. Once seated, the waiter was terrible. He forgot our order twice, served us our food and then coffee came 30 minutes later after asking 3 times for it. We had to grab a busser for some cream and sugar. There was a small black hair on my friend’s eggs. They also were quick to grab our plates before we were even finished. I will not go back and I will not recommmend this restaurant to anyone. Nice location but extremely sub-par service. Spent $100 on coffee and eggs for 3 people. Overrated!

When your palate wants to take a trip around the globe, this is the place to indulge it. Whether it's lamb tartare with lebanese spices or a poached eggs with squash and hungarian paprika, the flavors at Boulette's Larder & Bouli Bar will satisfy your craving for the exotic. Food is prepared with ingredients of exceptional quality and an artful presentation, turning out consistently excellent fine dining in a casual setting. A local favorite!

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

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.
