My favourite lunch or dinner place. Consistently good, half off wine Wednesdays and $5 martini Thursdays. The bar has very cozy seating and is my favorite area.

Reservations a must. Had lunch. First time going since it was Houston’s. If you didn’t have a reservation you couldn’t get in! Only had the Spinach dip app and the house salad. Was hoping for same as the old Houston’s but it was not. Good, not great. Service was very good! Will absolutely return and try some other items that are not Houston carry overs and Boulevard’s own. I hear they are excellent.

The food was excellent. The waitress didn’t being ketchup ordered and generally did not check on us after the food was served by another waiter.

While the food is consistently excellent, the wait staff is especially courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. We were treated to a special dining experience thanks to Ashley. She was an outstanding example of a top flight organization.

I had the crab cakes. They were amazing! Everyone at my table enjoyed their meal. The waitress was slow keeping our drinks filled. And, when we were told she would be back with water she returned with the bill, but no water.

One of my favorite places to dine. Pork chop was a bit tough and lacked in flavor. The artichoke appetizer is so simple yet so delicious. The spinach dip is always a hit.

It has been years since we have eaten here. I will be back soon. Our server Ashley was very good and Nicole,a manager, checked on us several times
We had oysters and the ribs for appetizers, both very good. The crab cakes were great.

We went on a Thursday evening and discovered most martinis were $5! Ordered the Prime Rib (excellent) and Paneed Chicken & Linguine (also excellent). Service was attentive, but not obtrusive. A very comfortable restaurant tucked in to a small shopping center. We'll return soon!

The food was delious; service was just fine, but the music that was playing over the speakers was not pleasant... it seemed to be “stuck” repeating the same 10 measures over and over and over for at LEAST 10 minutes. I couldn’t wait to leave... passed on dessert because did not want to hav to listen to it any more..

The food is excellent. Unfortunately, the service received on this most recent visit did not reflect similar sentiments. Service varies wildly depending upon your assigned server. The last two times we dined for lunch, the service was great. This most recent time, for lunch again, the service was awful and unacceptable. Please teach the servers to provide anticipatory and intuitive service. If a guest states that the sun from the open blinds is shining right in her face, please do NOT reply as “Bobby” the server did with, “The blinds do not move.” That’s great and it may very well be the case but that does not solve the problem. Instead of staring at the table until the guests decided to ask to move to another table, he could have proactively suggested this rather than making our table feel we are inconveniencing him. The server was aloof and appeared distracted for the remainder of the meal with many of us having to ask for beverage refills before he dropped the check off and was gone in a flash with a curt “thank you.” Also, the more mature lady who is the hostess during the weekdays could benefit from some additional hospitality training. I am all for a refined atmosphere and I don’t expect her to shout at me as I walk in the door, but a greeting that signifies she is actually glad we have chosen to dine in the restaurant would be wonderful. Perhaps she could smile a bit? I love that the restaurant decided to keep the host/hostesses in front of a wall credenza instead of placing a large podium at the door for the staff to hide behind. You would think this would help improve the arrival and greeting, yet this particular individual always seems to wedge herself on the side of the furnishing as she stares at you until you approach her and speak. This makes no sense at this type of establishment. We choose to eat at the restaurant often and would like to continue to do so. Please fix these things!

Disappointed that one of your signature dishes (Hawaiian Steak) was unavailable this night. This was the main reason for making this reservation. We always order this when my wife and I choose Boulevard to dine.
Had to settle for the Filet, which was good and the chef cooked them perfectly, still wasn’t what we had
intended on ordering. Service was very good and we did have a good dining experience.
Next time we will definitely inquire about the steak before dining.

It’s a very nice place for a date night. A little pricey compared to other places with similar fare but the ambiance is really good. We had the spinach appetizer, the shrimp and pasta and the salmon which were all really delicious. For dessert we had the brownie and the key lime pie which were so good. Crystal was a lovely server and took good care of us. It was a little chilly for me so I recommend bringing a light sweater. Wonderful evening overall.
