BLVD is a classic American steakhouse located in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood that draws inspiration from Hollywood’s Sunset Blvd circa 1950: the golden era’s most iconic strip of dining and entertainment establishments. BLVD combines the glamour, sophistication, and decadence that defined Hollywood in the 1950s with contemporary cuisine, craft cocktails, and modern music, creating an exciting dichotomy between restaurants and personas of the past and present.

It was odd, there were only two tables with patrons on the ground floor, but they refused to seat us in a booth, saying everything else was reserved. We sat for 2 hours and the ground floor was virtually empty--other than two other tables with patrons.
Seafood tower was outstanding and the wine list was great.

Checking was great. The hostess recognized that we were celebrating a birthday and the menu reflected that which was a nice touch.

Service was good in the beginning but then fell a bit short as we towards the end. Our server did send out a birthday dessert which was thoughtful.

Food was really good, but our steak which was ordered medium came out rare-medium rare. It didn’t stand on its own and I thought they were known for steak? Our sides were all wonderful though. We enjoyed the oysters, beet salad, potatoes, and corn. The waffle dessert and gelato was also super good!

Too Loud. Not a 50’s supper club vibe. Steaks were overpriced for the value and the taste. Mixology was good - but that is about it. Wait staff was inattentive at times and did not make the guest feel appreciated.

Needs a total re-visit if it’s concept. Need to stay much closer to the Hollywood Glotz and Glamour era. Good Luck - you need to start over.

Had a traffic delay and they gave away our main dining room table and sat us upstairs in a high traffic area.

We went there to celebrate our anniversary and we were wished a happy anniversary by the hostess when we arrived and also given glasses of champagne on the house to celebrate. Small details, but it made the night. The food was great and the drinks were strong. Had a great night there. Would recommend for celebratory nights out.

Food was exquisite, wait staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and the atmosphere was something out of a 1950's Hollywood glamour film. I had the Cacio e pepe which was divine, better than some of the authentic dishes I tried in Italy. My friend got the salmon and it was delicious as well. Wednesday's they do seafood towers for $75! For those white sweet wine drinkers out there, we tried a bottle of Cascinetta Vietti moscato and it was out of this world. Our waiter was kind enough to bring out this insanely delicious waffle with caramelized bananas and ice cream for dessert. It was just simply divine. Absolutely recommend.

Amazing seafood tower. $75 on wednesdays ! Can’t beat that ?! I had the chicken dish which was amazingly delicious! So crispy and delish. My partner had the filet mignon 10oz (medium well) was great also. Super soft and tasted amazing. We had side dishes liked the mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts which were very tasty. Some like it hot cocktail was very good! And the dessert, also great! I have no negative feedback! Will definitely return

Had a 7pm reservation and got seated at 7:20.
Tuesday "special" was $1.00 oysters. When we sat down we were told they were sold out of oysters.How does that happen??
Nice room but probably would not rush back

Excellent service, but did not like the food. I ordered scallops (I only ate 1, which tells alone that there was something about it that I did not care for). My husband ordered Cacio de Pepe and added truffles and shrimp. I’ve certainly tasted better pasta dishes. The ambiance and service was great, but would recommended a different restaurant for dinner.

Your atmosphere is absolutely stunning! The service was on point for the most part. The food was lacking. My main point of contention was the cacio de pepe done carbonara style. The dish came out incorrect so we sent it back. It came back ice cold as if it had just been sitting there (not even near a heat lamp or anything). Very disappointing with something that could’ve so easily been recovered.

My wife and I went here for our second anniversary. We had a wonderful experience. She got raw oysters and I had the steak tartare to start. Both were fantastic. My wife got the salmon and I got the scallops for entrees and we split the Brussels sprouts and corn/crab sides. The waitress recommended the Brussels sprouts and they were delicious. The corn/crab aide my wife lived I was indifferent but mostly because it’s mire a summer dish as opposed to winter. The salmon was outstanding and the scallops were probably in my top 5 all time. Even with the food being so good, what made the experience was our waitress. She was very attentive, always with a smile and provided great recommendations. We will definitely be back.

Our server, I believe his name was Dorian, was excellent a well as the rest of the service staff. We had been to BLVD several times before but don't frequent because the service was never great, at least until this experience.

We had to wait 50 minutes for a reserved table and continue to walk up to the hostess to see if it was ready. We were told they were out of truffle and the dish would be slightly different and get a side of mushrooms to make up for the absense of truffle, which we never did. They had, what we thought, was split our octopus app, but then removed the dish from my wife, who's birthday it was, in front of her face just before taking a bite. Some dishes came out in 40 minutes while others took 5 minutes. Food was great, service was absolutely horrible.

We have been here several times with 4-5 star quality and service every time. However this was a much different experience. From the bar service that was non-existent, the 45 mins late seating and complete confusion the entire time, it lacked the experience that a top-notch Chicago restaurant should provide.

Really good ambiance, very trendy, but it felt like a wanna be fancy restaurant without quality food to match the ambiance. The short rib dumpling was flavorless, the filet mignon was good but not as good as others that I have had

The bread and butter was very tasty. The half pound of crab was good, 2 crab legs. The duck confit was delicious but could have used a little more duck. The pappardelle was with a lamb Ragu. Something about the mint in the sauce just didn’t hit the pallet quite right. The service was average but the real issue I had is that the house cocktails are made Batch style. If I’m going to pay $15 for a drink it better be made to order. We each had 2 drinks plus the food above. $236 with tip. Ehh
