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.

Everything but the food. I had a steak that was all gristle.
The worst steak I have ever had.

Our experience at BLVD unfortunately did not live up to our expectations. The dining room and beautiful and our serve was friendly, however some main things that you hope for and see within a $$$ steak house were missing at BLVD. For example, bread and butter is not included (it’s $8), we brought our own bottle of wine for a corkage fee and instead of decanting it at our table they took it to the back, finally when we were ready to leave the server told us he couldn’t have valet bring the car around so we needed to ask the hostess and when we did, they told us we had to go outside and give it to the guys on the curb. This is not the level of service we expect from a high end steak house trying to land in the west loop, where there is much better restaurants. I probably will not be back.

The venue is truly beautiful, but the food - ehhh, food is nothing to write home about. Prices are high, and it seemed like the chef dumped about a bucket and a half of salt on the food.

This place is great for a drink at the bar, but for dinner I'd skip it.

Great place beautiful space! I would have given 5 stars but we had a new server who forgot our side orders and I had already ate my steak by the time they came. But the manager took care of the sides and brought complimentary champagne so I would still recommend this place as they seemed to really care about their visitors.

No respetaron la reserva que hice con 2 meses de anticipación. Es un lugar tremendamente caro y la calidad de la comida no es buena. Me obligaron a un menú fijo que nunca me dijeron que existía. No lo recomiendo.

BLVD is a cool idea that misses by a large margin. The decor and vibe are very cool, and the staff is friendly and polite. However, the food and service didn't make me feel like what I spent was worth it. I would rather have spent the same or more money at like minded restaurants that deliver a better product. Back to BLVD... The food is poorly prepared. I had a steak, and it was a nice cut of meat, but poorly seasoned. The steak was served with crystals of salt on it, indicating it was salted after being cooked. Tasted as thought this was the case, too. Additionally, a several items on the menu were described by our waiter as being served "family style", yet for the level of sophistication BLVD looks to be attempting to reach, I would have expected clean plates for each item so that flavors didn't mix. In fact, when my wife requested a clean plate, the wait staff returned with exactly one clean plate - instead of plates for both of us. To finish things off, a 20% gratuity was added to our bill...for a party of 2. I'm not certain they earned that 20%, but what choice did I have? Had service and food been better, I would gladly have tipped much more than 20%. Lastly, coat check politely handed us our coats, and managed to hang around waiting for a tip. I would have expected a little help managing the coats while I helped my wife into her coat... BLVD needs to step up its game.

The waiter was fantastic and attentive. He offered recommendations and was always there right as we needed him. The other wait staff made sure our waters were always filled and the tables were clean. The drinks looked and tasted great. I especially liked the variety of olives in my dirty martini. The restaurant is beautiful and the music selection was very good. We had a wonderful memorable Valentine’s Day experience there and we would come back.
