    On September 22, 2022 I invited my friend for her Birthday to Boulevard in San Francisco. We are from Texas and we had never been, we arrived at our reservation at 8:30 and seated by - very sweet hostess. We sat and they gave my friend a birthday card and we ordered a bottle of wine while we looked at dinner menu. Turns out our waiter, Dino, told us that we had to order the pre set menu in the dining room, which we were never aware of that this was mandatory. We thought we would order a la carte, but little did we know we had to order one of the prefixed menu items each. We asked if we would just share one prefixed or a la carte and he said he would ask the manager. Jacob the GM came to our table and notified us that we had to order the prefixed menu each or we would be relocated not in the dining room area basically to the bar. We already had our bottle of wine, complimentary starter. We were mortified that we would be relocated because he didn’t make an exception. He said I have a great table for you in the corner, why would we move when there were several open tables in dining area. I politely asked Jacob, If we could just stay and he rudely said no. Jacob insisted on moving us to the very dark back section of the lounge bar area. The point of us visiting boulevard was for the ambiance and food, but Jacob made it the worse experience because he told us we had to move in front of the other customers seated next to us, we saw him whisper to his employees while they stared at us while we finished our bottle of wine, so we immediately asked for the tab and he insisted we move but we wanted to leave because he embarrassed us and was so rude beyond anything I have experienced in a restaurant. Slammed the tab on the table and we took our time finishing our bottle of wine. On our way out we thanked the nice hostess and Jacob rushed up to us to ask what was happening because we were thanking her and I accidentally bumped into him and Jacob shouted to me DON’T TOUCH ME!

    The fixed price price menu was a surprise. More surprising was the requirement that everyone at the table had to order the fixed price offering or move to the chefs counter or bar. We were happy to do that.

    BoulevardResponded 6 days agoThanks for visiting us! Yes, our a la carte menu is available at the Chef's Counter, Bar, or Lounge. I personally love the Chef's Counter. The Dining Room is reserved for those participating in our multi-course dining experience.

    Excellent food, service and ambience. Seared scallops starter was superb. The lamb was perfectly cooked and the hot chocolate cake was delicious. In addition, the service was outstanding. Our server provided great recommendations and convinced my husband to try a different cocktail that he loved. Now it must be said that Boulevard is not inexpensive at a prix fixe price of $115 for three courses. But it was a great treat that we don’t regret for a minute!

    Excellent meal, as always. We tend to eat later than most (we were the latest table seated), so although the noise level was "moderate" when we first arrived because the place was full, it became closer to "quiet" after we had been there half an hour and many tables had emptied out. Service is attentive, but thankfully not cloying. We've never had a bad experience at Boulevard.

The quality of the food, presentation, ambiance, and staff professionalism is second to none. Expensive to be sure, but well worth it for a special night out.

    We enjoyed our evening. Service was friendly and gracious, especially since some of our group was late due to traffic. Food was very good overall, although the chocolate cake dessert was dry and not inspired. The pork chop was good but there was too much of it, and the accompaniments were not great. Everyone else enjoyed their meal.
