Fantastic on every measure. If steaks are served in heaven - then BLVD must be making them! Best steak/meal/cocktails/experience I’ve ever had. Rob our server was FIRST CLASS and he even sent the chef to meat us (see what I did there?). We went there for our daughter’s 25th birthday and we can’t wait to go back! Thank you BLVD staff for a great evening!

Best steak dinner in town. First in class service. I brought my attorney there. He told me it was the best meal he ever had. Nothing like the Great Gatsby of restaurants to complete the West Loop dominance in great dining.

The food was subpar, as was the service. The waitress wasn’t that friendly and seemed like she was rushing. Overall, I was disappointed in the taste of the food - it was very bland. The ambiance of the restaurant was amazing. It was a very cute vibe and the decor was nice. I wouldn’t come back though.

I say I have to say that this was not a good dining experience. This is the first bad meal that I’ve had in five years anywhere. I go out to eat often at many steak houses and this was terrible from the salad to the steak. I’m very disappointed and will never go back again

Loved the overall atmosphere, vibe, service (thanks Rob for a great time!) and food. However, we were disappointed and a little uncomfortable with the lack of spacing between tables and other parties given the growing and valid COVID concerns.

Everything was okay until the band showed up for New Year’s Eve, our table was right next to their booth basically where they wanted to put there equipment, so as soon as they got there our waitress brought our check, didn’t ask if I would like another drink or anything else, basically it was time for us to get out of the way. We probably weren’t even there for a whole hour. Don’t think I will come back, pre fixe menu was extremely limited and basic but the inside is pretty. I wish I would of chose somewhere else to celebrate!

Ever since I viewed “BLVD” on Yelp, I was smitten. The glamorous chandelier drew me in, immediately. I created an entire weekender around visiting this steakhouse. Upon arrival, I was greatly satisfied. As the glamorous chandelier greeted me just around the hallway bend. I felt so special and loved. Simply based on the detailed aestheticism placed throughout the restaurant. Once I entered the ladies room, I was in awe. Greeted by another decadent light gesture perfectly placed in the middle of the ladies room along with a gregarious couch. This is like every woman’s dream. I can’t wait to return. This time in a black dress 💎. Thank you, BLVD for this experience. I’ll never forget it.

BLVD is a good restaurant, but not for the price that was paid for a NYE dinner. Almost $500 for solid steak, okay grilled king crab and black, mediocre sides. Gratuity was automatically charged, along with a surge tax. I’ve paid $100 to $150 less for much better tasting foods from appetizers, entree, and desert. Can’t say I’d recommend aside from the ambiance - very beautiful inside.

Food was good, but nothing special for the price that we paid. Went for NYE. Probably would not go again, it's a one time thing. There are more delicious options in the city.

5:15pm res. Sat us upstairs in the Bar area instead of Main Dining room downstairs. Much noise from bartenders and wait staff getting drinks. There was an ADDITIONAL $45 charge for my steak!!!!! With a $95 per person Fixed Menu it was gouging!!! The only side available was 50/50 potatoes (no vegetables) the desserts were only 2 and extremely small. Horrible first time experience!!!!

The steak was great! we ordered the 10 oz filet and it was awesome. Everything else we had was just ok (twice baked potato, green salad, lobster bisque). Some reading this may think that Im exaggerating but my husband and I frequent many chicago restaurants so I have a lot to compare BLVD to and yes outside of the steak everything else was just ok. The ambiance in this place is superb... like unmatched which matches the dim and intimate atmosphere but unfortunately we were sitting very close (actually too close knowing that COVID numbers are spiking)... but very close to an extremely talkative group. I literally couldn't hear my own thoughts and it really messed up the intimate date night that my husband and I were trying to have. So overall I would still recommend BLVD, they have decent food, nice atmosphere, but be specific about your seating selection if you have an option.

We attended for a good friend's birthday celebration. We were seated immediately with prompt attention. We were provided menus with excellent information for all of our questions. We ordered cocktails, mocktails, and beer. Our appetizers were the crab cake and lobster bisque which was amazing!! Our entres were equally delicious! We ordered the lambchops cooked medium, the porkchop, and the organic chicken. Each meal was outstanding, literally no complaints. This restaurant was beautiful and the food was even better. Definitely will be enjoying another night out here.

Sad only bone in NY strip and only coffee flavored crème brûlée. I was looking forward to my usual favorite crème brûlée. The description stated “seasonal flavor” not sure that means coffee flavor! Why not provide the customer with an alternative like the usual crème brûlée! Both orders of crème brûlée were taken off check at least. Overall, nice atmosphere but dessert menu left me wanting more. Oh and no special complimentary treat from restaurant to help us celebrate our special occasion. That was disappointing!

Most everything is amazing about this restaurant! Except the steak was meh. They weren't bad, they weren't great. For instance, the inside of 10 oz filet was amazing, like steak cloud! But the top and bottom tasted like a salt mine, I ended up cutting them off to be able to eat the rest. Definitely expect better for the price and stylized "steakhouse."
