Our meal and the service were, as always, impeccable even though is was a very strange night, the first night of an awareness of the issues surrounding the virus that has stopped everything. That night there was no car traffic, no foot traffic, and almost no diners in the restaurant. However, that did not prevent the staff and the kitchen from producing a first-class meal!

Perfect meal, perfect service, perfect ambiance. Every dish, from the appetizers to the dessert, had layers of amazing, unforgettable flavors. Boulevard is a very special place. Pricey, but absolutely worth it.

This was our first time dining at Boulevard and was delighted with our experience! The service was exceptional, the ambiance was full of character and old-world charm and the food was divine! We were celebrating a co-worker's birthday and she was even treated with a lovely card and personalized dessert.

Went for a birthday dinner and was looking forward to an upscale special occasion meal. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to expectations... started off ordering a $28 a glass of champagne that was flat. Server said she’d replace with a fresh bottle this time. Hmmm...
Tried to order the halibut without onions as I detest them and had a friendly discussion with the server about it.
The fish came covered in sautéed onions. Hmmm...
couldn’t get an alternate sauce for the onion beurre blanc either...
The server said she told the chef no onions but if she was paying attention probably could’ve noticed the error.
Overall rather disappointing... didn’t feel all that it was up to standard...

We had a table in the back near the Embarcadero and it was quiet which was great for a business meeting. Boulevard is awesome for so many occasions including our first date. The food, service and ambiance are wonderful and it has never disappointed

We enjoyed a lovely birthday lunch; the food was delicious and Steven D, our server, took excellent care of us. We also appreciated that my birthday and our friends’ anniversary were acknowledged. The crab salad appetizer and scallops entree were both yummy! Definitely an afternoon to remember!

We had a wonderful table in a corner with two windows. The food was exceptional but expensive and when they say appetizer they mean a SMALL appetizer. Every table was taken and it was noisy but our lovely table in the corner made conversation across the table easy. We will definitely go again

Outstanding service, food and experience. I've taken clients here several times and on each occasion I felt assured that the time spent was very worthwhile and enjoyable from their perspective. I loved how the nearby staff throughout the restaurant greeted us as we were being escorted to our table, and thanked us and said goodbye as we left. The view of the Bay Bridge is gorgeous, especially at night, adding to the already great ambience. Our most recent server, Hunter, was excellent (and so were the previous ones).

I have been going to Boulevard for over 25 years - and last night had the worst meal ever. The lamb t-bone was inedible - gristle and tough. The waiter was indifferent. What a true disappointment from what had been consistently one of my favorite SF restaurants.
