Love our waitress who has been there since it opened. Never had such a wonderful experience with the same server each time.

We've had great experiences here- not sure what happened. The restaurant was empty, the meals were not cooked and had to go back, the water glasses went unfilled, they ran out of menu items.

Not going back - even though I love the great big zinc bar.

Delicious bistro fare, not outrageously priced. Red snapper with capers and olives was cooked perfectly. Grilled octopus appetizer portion was generous and tasty. The wine list is average but they will let you taste before you decide. Cozy interior could use some upgrades but overall a pleasant night out. Great to go with a small group.

We've been to the Restaurant many times service is always good. The Lobster with avocado appetizer was fabulous followed by the Coq Au Vin special was exceptionally special. The one thing I think should be worked on is the wine list no familiar names makes choices hard. Really good evening 😘

We ate appetizer, starters, main dish and desert in 35 minutes. No time to relax! The waiter wanted to finish as soon as possible his job.
While we were finishing our deserts, we saw some waiters crossing the room holding two plates and ate at the bar...
We didn't feel welcome in this restaurant.

We had been there before, and the food used to be better. The salad was woefully lacking in the variety of items it used to feature, and everything was only ok. The server was abrupt with me, but brightened when my young companion arrived.

We were four for dinner. They were out of escargot. My friend asked for medium rare lamb. She received well done. Several of the wines were out of stock. We were seated at a too tiny table for four people and we stared at a larger empty table across the way all night. One of us knocked over a glass of water because there was not enough space. We had a reservation and should have been seated at a larger table. We won't be back.

First time to dine there. Exceeded my expectations. Both food and wine were excellent. Warm and comfortable dining room. The bar looks like a good place to eat if I was on my own.

Boulevard 18 once again did not disappoint. The octopus salad was incredible
as was the mushroom ravioli. The potato wrapped fish was a keeper! I heartily
recommend this restaurant for both a night out or a quick family dinner. It's great.

This is an authentic French bistro and they do that well! Dinner and dessert were wonderful. Our only complaint was a polite but over extended waiter who also had to cover the bar. When a group came into the bar and ordered drinks - our wait time for service was ridiculous. Come on management, you've got the food right so now why not add another waiter or two?

Four of us ate at Boulevard 18. I had gone months ago and years ago and decided to go
back with my two adult children. It was sensational!!! We went to the Inn at Pound Ridge by Jean-George last week and everyone though that this was better!!! We had octopus, pate and escargot for appetizers. One was better than the next. We literally said," if the appetizers are this good, it usually means the entrees will be bad." The entrees were fantastic! My sons steak frite was cooked to perfection. My husband had a pork chop on a bed of fresh cut corn and cherry tomatoes that was incredible. I had the BEST mussels that I have EVER had and my daughter had the trout in herbs that was honestly the most incredible fish any of us have had. The food felt homey and chic at the same time. We were blown away and have already planned to come back.

Been there about 8-10 times, but the food and service has deteriorated to the point where unlikely to try again. Too bad as the menu and ambiance has always been appealing. Steak was bad, service was worse (one waiter went home during the meal and the other had no idea about our order). Nice outside setting on lovely evening ruined by meal and service. Took over two hours start to check.
