The quality and presentation of the food was a 10 out of 10. Truly excellent. This is a place to take a foodie for sure. Good vegetarian options as well. No gluten free stuff which was a bummer.
I think spot has a split personality in a good way. The larder part is open to the outdoors, more casual and more day light. The Bouli bar is more dimly lit and more luxurious. I liked having the options. It's nice to eat an earlier meal in lower light.

The quality is not cheap so come prepared to spend $45-55 per person for breakfast.

Overpriced -$28 for poached egg dish and $8 for lemonade Yikes! We went for a great Sunday breakfast at the busy light filled Ferry Terminal and were then seated in a dark side room where the staff was not overly concerned with how we were doing and delivered the food sporadically. Food was high quality but the overall experience left me depressed.

The food was excellent as always - they print new menus every day, and everything is fresh & local. However, for a Saturday lunch (with a reservation) service was very slow and a simple lunch took almost 2 hours of our day (took more 45 minutes from when we were seated to even get an order placed, while people seated after us already had food by then!)

I made a reservation for my Mom and I to have lunch at 12:30 and we arrived an hour early and asked if it would be too much trouble to dine early. The hostess graciously said yes and we sat in a spot outside. We were both impressed with the menu. The food was taking a little longer than normal and our server proactively brought us a glass of iced hibiscus tea in advance of us saying anything (we weren't going to as the people watching was great.) Our food was incredible. Our server was so kind and lovely, he even made a point to wish us well as we left as did the hostess. It was one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in awhile, a highlight of our San Francisco visit. Highly recommended.

What a special restaurant! I brought my friend to lunch for his birthday, we requested the window seat, so he had a bridge view. The food is outstanding. We started with beautifully prepared octopus. I enjoyed my regular favorite, the chilled seafood salad. It's very tasty and light. He said the chicken salad was very good. The service is friendly and attentive.

On two separate visits, I have been honored with a visit from the chef after inquiring about a food's preparation. Obviously very talented, she also generously shares exactly how an item is prepared. It doesn't get better than that for the foodie in me.

We are regulars at Bouli Bar and Boulettes. The quality of the food and service is always superior and consistent. The chefs, Amaryll and Lori, are among the best in SF and offer creative, delicious, interesting and nutritious food presented with perfection and tasteful artistic simplicity. The value of what they offer is unmatched...their quality is every bit as superior to any of the starred restaurants in SF for a much more reasonable price. Saturday and Sunday brunch should not be missed either!!

We were a party of 3, arriving just after the 10:00 opening for Sunday Brunch. There was only one other party. Waiter took our order, then the restaurant filled up quickly, especially on the patio. It took awhile to get our food, they brought only 2 plates, and we had to ask for the third. They also didn't bring our order of toast, which we had to ask for. I also had to ask for salt and pepper. I think they were under-staffed and overwhelmed, as there seemed to be confusion at the pickup station in the kitchen. This was a huge disappointment, as I have been dining at Boulette's Larder for many years and wanted to share it with my friends.

Boulibar & Boulettes Larder are consistently one of the best restaurants in San Francisco. Pass on Fisherman’s Wharf and make a reservation at Boulibar or Boulettes Larder for a real taste of San Francisco.

Fresh ingredients and well prepared. However, lacks flavor. Portions are small. Lunch time is crowded and difficult to hold a conversation without raising your voice. Great service.

Terrible service. It took too long for them to pay attention to us a d take our order. We order a pork loin plate which was cold and they never explained when they took our order that it wasn’t a hot plate. We were so hungry and it took so long for the waiters to take the order that we were mad and this ruined our day

Have been making it a stop in SFO for many years whenever I visit from NYC. It is a special place and if you like outdoor markets go Saturday before 2pm, you can sit outside next to the market stalls and admire the view of the Bay and the Bridge. The food is always creative and delicious. The service is very pleasant. Breakfasts and Brunches are great as is everything else. The Chefs owners are consistently visible in the beautiful open kitchen.
Everything here is unique, the restaurant is beautiful and has a comfortable character.
A gem!

The hosts could have been friendlier. It took a while to get acknowledged at the door; which is already an awkward setup. (You stand outside waiting to be greeted ; no host desk or host for that matter. We received a few glances but felt odd waiting.)
We were seated outdoors in a very sunny spot, absolutely no shade. We were hoping to move but not possible.
Our server & meal were fabulous.

The preparation of each dish is done with such care for quality, flavor, appeal. Not fancy, elegantly simple and pure. Amaryll and Lori bring out the very best in every ingredient. And the pisco sours are the best ever. I am ever pleased, especially by the beef tartare.

The restaurant was located inside the Ferry Building which is already a tourist hotspot so the noise level was high. The table my group sat at was family style so we were sitting among a couple other groups. It was a little difficult to have a conversation.

Excellent food. Attention to sourcing produce shows. However, hostess and some of the staff are disconnected from reality and rather bizarre. It took 1/2 hour for us to be served despite our reservation. We did eventually connect with a competent waiter who was great.

It has been a while since I've been to Boulette's Larder. Boulibar did not exist the last time I dined at BL. It is a great addition. The food remains stellar and I like the addition of the pizza oven. My girlfriends and I split the olives, crudite, octopus, circassian chicken salad and the funghi pizza. Cocktails were excellent also. This was a nice way to have a leisurely lunch.

Boulettes and Boulibar never ceases to amaze! Consistently extraordinary experience. Service is gracious and the food stupendous. If you’re looking for a quintessentially San Francisco restaurant near the bay, look no further.

Their pizzas are some of the best in the Bay.
