Manager Aaron was amazing very accommodating. Aaron took time out of his business schedule to give us a tour of the restaurant as we were thinking of reserving a space for our wedding reception in 2022. Staff was amazing !!!

The staff was very nice and gave us a nice table. I was all thumbs up about BLVD Steakhouse until the food arrived. I don't take pleasure in writing poor reviews, but, when I looked up ratings for the food, they do not match what we received.

The butter for our bread was loaded with salt... not a big deal. Our salad was loaded with salt. We didn't return the salad, but, asked the waiter to tell the kitchen to ease up on the salt for the next course. To be fair, when we received the main course, it was not salty, but, the steaks were on the dry side and chewy. I'm from New York and I've never paid $85 for a ribeye; to pay that for a steak that's so underwhelming is why I won't be back. My wife's steak (filet mignon) was also dry and chewy.

Again, the staff was really nice and I hope the food at BLVD improves, but, in our opinion, they have some work to do. Anyone considering to go should read the reviews and hopefully, this review will help.

I’ve had the divine opportunity to experience BLVD on 2 separate, celebratory occasions and I. Cannot. Get. Enough. The atmosphere is moody, glamorous, and sexy-there’s definitely a high-powered politician wooing their mistress vibe (in the best way-don’t be a prude). The service is dazzling-above and beyond. The food is sensational. Can a beef fat fry be transcendent? You tell me. And Robert the bar manager and his team are masters of the craft cocktail…and seduction. I will absolutely be back. Try and stop me!

My husband and I had just had a horrible weekend before we got there. We were promptly greeted by our server Mark. Poor mark had to hear all about our weekend but helped put us at ease right away. From showing us the menu to making pairing suggestions for us and even a surprise night cap, everything was perfect. He made us forget about our unpleasant weekend and turned it around for us!

Atmosphere was outstanding.
Initial service was average, but became quite good after 2 of 3 steaks were overcooked to the point of having one sent back. Even after cooked properly, steak was 'okay'. Side dishes were all also just 'okay'. Bread was fantastic.
With all the fine steak houses in Chicago, this one gets lost in the mix while other stand out.

Service was great and so was ambiance. Food was okay for the price we all thought fries needed some work for the Steak frites. Literally tasted like Burger King fries. The filet mignon was really good though. We got the 50/50 potatoes, corn, and broccolini as well and those were good.

Restaurant is absolutely gorgeous. Nice wine list. Muscles were over seasoned. Filet was over cooked. Asked for medium rare and was medium. Scallops and grits were drowning in a ring of butter . Very greasy. Sticky toffee pudding was great. Maybe sitting at the bar for a drink and dessert is the way to go. $300 + for a "fair" meal isn't how I want to spend my money. Such a shame.

The service wasn't that great. And they already add in gratuity for poor service. They didn't want to seat me even though I had a reservation. I asked for a booth and they gave me a half booth.

the restaurant was beautiful, but it shocked me to find out that the food was pretty bad. The most tasty option there was the sourdough bread. The Lobster bisque was too salty. I needed several refills of water in order to eat it. The risotto was just terrible - bathed in so much grease one spoonful was enough to make use set that aside. The organic chicken was okay, but again, too much grease. The steak frites were honestly a 5.5/10. I think I could have gotten more flavorful steak at Chipotle. Overall, food was a massive disappointment. The desert was delicious though.

Me and some friends came here for dinner to celebrate my birthday. Service was good with a beautiful ambience! However, the food was not so great. I ordered the Kilgus farm bershire pork chop and it was 80% FAT! HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED FOR THE PRICE I PAID. My guest who dined along with me ordered the king salmon and they had complaints of a fishy after taste. That’s not normal for salmon, makes me believe it could have been spoiled/out of date. The server was kind and replaced the salmon with a item of their choice but the moment was already ruined. Good cocktails thought. Pretty place but I am not likely to return.

They were clearly extremely busy and perhaps overbooked because we ordered our food 30 minutes after we arrived (partially our fault for taking a while to decide but also because the waiter didn't come by very often), and then we waited over an hour and a half for our food to come out. Two of the dishes came out incorrectly (overcooked and not with the right toppings)-- but the manager was kind enough to comp those two. If we hadn't had to wait so long for our food it would've been okay but unfortunately we were starving and had somewhere else to get to. The food was also obviously overpriced for the quality although it was all still very tasty food. If I knew I would be at my table for three hours going in, I would probably have been more okay with it, but I was so hungry I almost didn't care that the food came out wrong. However, the atmosphere was totally gorgeous and the cocktails were extremely tasty. Just wish the service had been slightly better-- thanks to the manager for being so accommodating--but he also shouldn't have had to be.

Very good food in a beautiful setting. Great for couples or even dinner before the game. The chicken and vegetable dishes were all delicious. I would like to see more fish options and the 18% mandatory gratuity regardless of party size may fly in Miami, but I'm no fan of it in Chicago.

Love the atmosphere. We were celebrating our anniversary and this was a very special place. Only thing that was not accommodating was my request for a booth (we were sat at a table that was small) but everything else was great.
