One of my favorite restaurants! Always constant.
Great service! Stem ware and silver ware of restaurants at twice the price.
Quiet and dimly lit, perfect for relaxing after a long day at work.

Deviled eggs and ribs are the best! Quality of the food is very consistent. Hats off to the cooks.

The hawaiian steak was well done instead of medium well Also the veggie burger was absolutely awful. I would only recommend the ribs, spinach dip and smoked salmon.

Went for Christmas, food and atmosphere were great. Waiter made sure we knew he wasn’t happy to be there for Christmas which made an otherwise great experience less palatable. I’d definitely go back and recommend.

Great atmosphere! Great service! So glad they kept the Houstons menu staples as well as decor. Hawaiian Ribeye is delectable, yum! Fantastic burgers! Conner was awesome! We will be back! Thanks.

From the moment we entered the door the service and attentiveness of the staff made this a most enjoyable experience. The food was great and the courses were spaced out with each course arriving right after the last person had finished their prior course.

Christmas Eve 2017 was a nightmare. They were totally unprepared. But we gave them another chance and they remedied everything. Filet was perfect! My ribs were great! This was our 4th Christmas Eve. Will continue our tradition.

We always enjor our visits there but its getting very pricy. I enjoy the prime rib but the portions are all over the board. Sometimes you get a nice evenly sliced portion and others time the portion starts off the thickness of the bone ( I like it with a bone ) but buy the time it reaches the other side of the portion its very thin. I have to send it back because of that.

My friends and I were seated promptly and service was fabulous! We all ordered something different and everyone raved about the food. We enjoyed everything and will be back soon. Highly recommended, no complaints whatsoever. Personally my favorite thing was the pork rib appetizer, which I will order from now on, it was amazing!

My husband and I went for Thanksgiving dinner. It was our first time at the restaurant. We were promptly seated and waited on. We both chose the Thanksgiving menu. The food was very good and convinced us to return again soon. The restaurant was bustling and every staff person was working to ensure a pleasant dining experience for all. I saw one waiter stoop under a table to pick up the floor while using his cell phone flashlight to illuminate the carpet. Wow! It is rare in today's world to see such dedication to a task. It was a great experience. Anyone interested in great service and beautiful tasty food should make the trip to American Boulevard Bistro.

Service was non existent. I realize it was a holiday but the restaurant was not slammed. The girl who took our drink order was very snotty and flippant. Our sever was like a ghost. She had to be flagged down for us to order. We started with the incredible Wedge Salad then wanted appetizers. She didn't come back to the table for a full 20 minutes to take our entree order. So no apps for us. Once food was delivered never checked back. Dessert or coffee not offered. Had to flag her down every time we needed something. The food was exceptional. Love the food. Wish service was as awesome as the food

This restaurant needs to decide what it wants to be. It sells itself as a fine dining restaurant and the prices reflect that but the food is not up to that quality. They seem to be trying to compete with the casual dining of the Chili’s next-door and quality is suffering as a result.

The Boulevard continues the tradition of Houston's. Menu is very similar and the food is consistently good. Prices are high, if you are budget conscious. Crab cakes, the grilled artichoke and the cheese burger are favorites. The bar does a good job with cocktails.

I went to The Boulevard for my birthday dinner. The food, the drinks, and the service were all impeccable. I had a party of six and everyone enjoyed their meal. My server was the best! She was very kind, knowledgeable about the menu, and made sure that our glasses were consistently topped off. I like the fact that the kitchen has an open view where you can see the food being prepared. The workers were quickly working to get the food out in a timely manner. I must also acknowledge how fabulous the entire staff was. I really enjoyed the entire experience from start to finish and will definitely return.
