Since its opening in 1993, Boulevard restaurant has been hailed as one of the best restaurants in San Francisco. Created in partnership with designer Pat Kuleto, the elegant, yet warm and welcoming interior of Boulevard is the essence of the Belle Époque style. It is a glorious setting for Chef Nancy Oakes hearty, flavorful, beautiful cuisine. American regional flavors, French influenced style, enthralling design, form the entire experience at Boulevard. Located in the heart of the San Francisco's revived waterfront area, the historic Audiffred Building is the ideal home for Boulevard. Among many wards received, Boulevard was proud to announce being granted the James Beard Award for Outstanding Restaurant 2012.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times. generally it appears that the quality of the food has declined over the past few years. Very sorry about that but wont be rushing back.

There is a reason that Boulevard has continued, over the many years that it has been open, to be so outstanding in providing an experience in dining. No matter whether it is lunch or dinner, the food is fabulous, the service attentive and caring and the atmosphere cozy and welcoming. Boulevard will remain one my favorites!

Excellent all around. Lunch for 4 people, favorites: lobster bisque, halibut, ravioli with beets (entree size), bread pudding, chocolate peanut butter sundae. Service was superb and restaurant was gracious to allow us to remain long after closing. Not our first visit and certainly not our last.

Service was great, wines were great, and many of the courses come with several creative additions which compliment the food and yet stand on their own.

This is our favorite San Francisco restaurant. We have been coming here for years, and it never disappoints. The food is always delicious, using staple ingredients with seasonal and local interpretations. The wine and cocktail lists offer interesting options. It’s expensive, so we reserve it for special occasions, which makes it even more of a treat.

Always amazing food and service. Noise level is getting a bit much but it's more the 'no manners' millennials than the restaurant's fault.

Boulevard is a wonderful restaurant. The only negative is that it is very loud and for older people with hearing aids, carrying on a conversation is somewhat difficult. That stated, the menu is interesting, very good, but expensive wine list and excellent waiters.

Our favorite in SFO. Many visits in past for special dinners. This time we took friends visiting from Ireland and they
liked it very much also. Three of us had sturgeon which is always a treat when available.

Boulevard used to be a very highly rated restaurant and you can see why. When you walk through the spinning doors, you get transported into a wonderful, warm restaurant. Personally, I wasn't blown away with anything except the decor and dessert. The issue is that you could tell this place *used* to be nice. The price and status were no longer at par with the quality of the restaurant. Everyone was uninterested in what they were doing. The service was subpar. Our waiter couldn't remember that we wanted sparkling water and no ice, didn't seem pleased to be serving us, my food came out VERY rare rather than medium, things took longer than they should. The only thing that made up (tenfold) for the bland experience was the pumpkin creme brulee. The pastry chef is a gift to the world. I say this as someone who has been a server: the quality of service is bland. No one said working in restaurants is easy but that doesn't mean you should be allowed to work in a once-Michelin Star rated place and be uninterested unless you happen to live in France. Our server only turned *on* after we left the tip as we were leaving. But I guess if a restaurant *had* Michelin stars and no longer does, this is the quality you get.
