I love Boulevard. To me it is the perfect restaurant experience. Beautiful. Great food. Professional and attentive service. My only suggestion is to get some more salads on the lunch menu for those of us no longer eating bread. A Cobb sandwich? Really?

Boulevard has had great food for many years but the prices have risen to astronomical levels. There were 4 of us and one had a steak filet at $53! Sure glad i stopped eating red meat long ago. Pork chop was $49. I had 4 small scallops at $37 . Gee what a deal? The peach salad came with unripe peaches but the waiter did a nice touch by going to the kitcehn and getting nicely ripened desert peaches.

Waiter was good and friendly even though he suggested a pinot at $400! Not being Google executives we decided on a $68 pinot that was very good.

So bottom line Boulevard is an good restaurant but the prices are for tourists or way over moneyed locals.

For upscale dining when needed like this situation , i will gravitate to Zuni, Rich Table, Francis, Quince and others that are expensive but not ridiculous.

Sorry as I always loved Boulevard.

Boulevard is a stalwart in the San Francisco dining scene and for good reason. It remains one of the best restaurants in The City. Exquisite service and innovative, interesting and delicious food is always delivered. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We've been going to Boulevard for many years. This time the entrees were terrible - their usually spot on pork chop was undercooked. We sent it back and a considerably smaller chop, though cooked properly this time, was brought back to our table. The vegetarian entree option of a "risotto" of english peas and beans sounded much better than its actual execution.

Great service especially the attention towards my wife’s birthday. First and main course were amazing, but I was less impressed with dessert, although presentation was spot on.

Everything was wonderful from the moment we sat down, through to dessert. I wish I remembered our server’s name, but she mentioned it was her 1 Year anniversary, if that helps... she was so attentive and looking to make us happy in every way. And that really wasn’t necessary, because the food produced such joy all in itself. We had the peach and little gem salad + the tomato burrata to start. I had the halibut while my aunt had the lamb. We finished off with the mozzarella cheesecake. All was so tasty, interesting and full of amazing and interesting flavors.

Boulevard simply never disappoints. Thank you!

Always a lovely experience..a limited (which I like) menu of creative dishes, well prepared and plated and served professionally. Noise level moderate--a plus for those of us who want to converse with friends, and often missing in restaurants today. Prices a bit elevated for lunch but consistent with the quality of the food. Birthday wishes included--nice touch!

Absolutely loved our lunch! Seeing an old friend who does not live in town, so it was a treat no matter what.
We sat in a front corner window seat, the food was beautiful to look at and delicious, and our waiter was friendly and experienced...very attentive, but not too much! He helped make the experience perfect, for sure!

From soup to nuts, outstanding! Love the pork chop. Great wine selection with a superb wait staff. Had close friends in from New Orleans with a presence in D.C. and Boulevard was my first thought for a great night out. The lighted Oakland bridge view was the icing on the cake.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Boulevard and couldn't have been happier with the kind wishes and fantastic food. Met with an anniversary card from the staff and an amuse bouche to start us off. Ended our wonderful meal with a surprise dessert of fresh chocolates and caramels with a lovely white chocolate "happy anniversary" edible card. These are the touches that make for a special occasion. Thank you!

Why haven't we been here before? We will be back. I was going to have the halibut. But Ben our waiter changed my mind as well as one of my guest. I am so glad he did. Great waiter. He gave suggestions with a smile. I want him as my waiter when we return. (Which will be soon)

Great food but waiter seemed to disappear for long periods of time. Took us 10 minutes to order a drink, it arrived almost 10 minutes later. Waited another 10 minutes for him to return for our order. He seemed to be overwhelmed- people sat after us were served long before we were! Love this place but disappointing service.

The service was attentive and very nice. However, the appetizer salad looked like it was hapharardly tossed on the plate ... and bitter tasting. The main course was tough and rubbery with little flavor. Overall a very disappointing meal.
