Reserved table is colder due to closer to the door. They did not have any other table because a party was held. We are forced to like a bar table with high chair. It was uncomfortable, but their seafood were really excellent.
We’d like to visit again next time.

Service slow, appetizers came out different times. 6 of us altogether for dinner. Only one person got their salad. The rest of us got our salad after the one person finished. When I told waiter I wasn’t happy about that he apologized but did not compensate for the inconvenience. Food was good service could have been a lot better. Not sure if I wi

The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Boulevard Kitchen. The server, Brian C, was knowledgeable, friendly, and competent. The food was superb, beautifully presented, and just enough for a happy tummy. While I don't drink, one of our party did and was pleased with the wine Brian suggested to accompany the ling cod. The noise level was fairly high, but it was a happy hubbub, not at all uncomfortable (and I don't usually like much noise). Boulevard Kitchen is definitely going on our "let's go there again" list.

Great night overall - oyster selection was excellent, but I do suggest a printout of the list. It was hard to keep track of the oyster options verbally communicated and described to comfortably pick. One note - it did feel rushed there like they wanted to flip the table quickly. Food arrived very shortly after ordering and was overall very fast. Keep in mind if you are planning a quiet, slower meal. Otherwise food was delicious and venue is top notch.

The kitchen was out of all the things we ordered including the features that the waiter raved about. They never let us know until atleast 20 minutes after we ordered. The manager tried to blame it on how busy they were (a typical saturday night). I would not recommend going to this restaurant.

Food was amazing, the braised beef was so good. Sea food tower for 2 was incredible, except the oysters were OK. Nevertheless the crab was good, the prawns, the shrimp salad, all good! Moscow mule was so-so ; not enough ginger beer or not enough alcohol, it was watered down, and I've had better. We will be back though 100%.

The front of house staff was rude and dismissive. They couldn't find my reservation on the system and then questioned me when I told them someone called me that day to confirm. We were then sent to the lounge where we were completely ignored. We were actually going to walk out when someone came to take us to our table. The server was attentive and friendly and the food was good, but unfortunately the hostess staff was so rude it was not enough to save the experience. I would not recommend this restaurant as you have to endure the rude treatment in order to be given a table.

I can't say enough about the service from Boulevard's staff. My sister and I were treated so well and were very appreciative of the unexpected surprises she received at the end of our meal (a birthday dessert along with a card from the manager). It was our first time dining here and my expectations were surpassed. I can't wait until my next visit!
