My wife and I have birthdays that are one day apart. We have dined at Boulevard many times in the past and I love going there for special occasions. The food was outstanding.
Great experience, as expected
The staff went above and beyond for the birthday celebration dinner I was having. There was a birthday card from the staff and even dessert. I look forward to future celebration dinners at Boulevard.
After all these years, still great!
The experience was OK. Service was great. My friend ordered the lamb. I guess it was ok... the gnocchi was my choice.... the portion was appetizer size. Salty. The Brussel sprouts were barely cooked through. Hated it. My host was unaware.... kept my trap shut. FYI
The quality of food and service has always be consistently good. It’s conveniently located at SF downtown. You may catch the nice view of the Bay Bridge at the back door area (although not inside the restaurant). Service was professional. Too bad I didn’t get a chance to taste the seared foie gras there anymore. The food overall was good, except the wagyu beef carpaccio, which was below expectation. I like this restaurant because most customers are more mature, unlike others who have younger groups who make too much noise. It’s a great place for gatherings with friends when you want to enjoy nice chats.
Phenomenal every time! Great chef!
Great food and extensive wine list.
Awesome place for a fun, relaxing meal with great food. The apps and desserts were amazing.
Absolutely too loud to even taste the food — or enjoy our company.
Excellent as always!!
The downgrade on service was due to the slowness of the kitchen. There were no problems with the wait staff.
Boulevard was everything I hoped for. The food and service were fantastic. The ambience was great. Was exactly what we were looking for on our last night in San Francisco.
One of the best meals I have ever had. I would come to SF
My wife and I go to Boulevard every year for our anniversary. The food is always great and the servers are friendly and helpful. My wife had the pork chop which was beautiful. Pork chops can be dry and tasteless but this was not that. I had the filet which was a little disappointing because it was not as tender as I had expected. Having said that, it was still great. We brought a friend here for lunch this summer. She is a serious foodie, having owned a restaurant and a catering business. She loved the food, the atmosphere and she fell in love with the sommelier. Needless to say we’ll be back again next year. Or probably sooner.
Best food and service in San Francisco. We celebrate our anniversary there every year.
We have been coming here for special occasions for 15 years. It is never old or predictable. The food is always exquisite. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The space is special. This is THE special place for your special evening.
I come here regularly, love this place! Food was delicious as usual!
This time the staff wasn’ t quite welcoming / friendly at all.
While using the restroom I experienced that an Boulevard employee left the restroom without washing his hands.
Still wonderful after all these years. A great way to celebrate a special occasion with creative, delicious food served by a friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff. The decor is so whimsical and stunning - please never change it,
Overall a pleasant experience, quiet enough to comfortable talk, innovative menu. Highlight was a beef carpaccio with wild mushrooms -- awesome combination of taste and texture. The hot dishes were good, but both quail and lamb were served warm rather than hot. They seemed to be sitting out there waiting to be served. Cote du Rhone wine was great.
Best year after year , every time never lets down
Fortunately we had been to Boulevard a couple of months ago and our experience was wonderful. The service during our most recent visit left much to be desired.
The young woman who was assigned to our table was less than attentive. We had a reservation, were there on time and yet after being seated, other tables with guests seated after us were given service before us. At the end of our meal we placed orders for desserts and coffee. Two of the three coffee orders were brought before desserts were served. Our server was around but we couldn’t get her attention until desserts had been served. When she was asked about the missing coffee our server commented that she (the guest) had changed her mind. It was 10+ minutes before the third coffee was served...after dessert was eaten. Giving 3 stars for service rather than 1 because we don’t want to reflect negatively on the male assistant server...who would have 5 stars from us.
On a positive note, the male assistant server who brought bread, water, and cleared our table was delightful! He was attentive, personable, and efficient!
Our meals were excellent, we love the ambience of this restaurant, and we will return.
The food was outstanding and our waiter was attentive, informative and overall made our experience delightful.
Boulevard staff and kitchen deliver a spot on experience.
Nice view. Old fashioned looking but in a good way.
Blvd is officially well past its prime. Cocktails were nice, wine list okay but lacking inspiration. Food was average at best - lacked flavor and brightness, and was basically a throwback to the millennium. I’ve eaten here at Least once each year for 20 years and this was probably my last. Time to move on.
You must go to this amazing restaurant. A unique experience every time we dine! If I lived in SF I would eat here on a regular basis. Totally dedicated to your personal dining. Deliciously fresh ingredients provide a splendid titillation of your taste buds. Perfect for every day dining as well as special occasions. They provided a very special Happy Anniversary to us!
There just aren’t enough words to tell you how much I enjoy Boulevard!
When we come to the city, it’s always make it our one splurge meal! Yes, it is not a cheap ticket but everything about it is excellent!
Our service, as usual, was friendly and professional. Can’t say enough about how well trained the staff is and how they effortlessly move thru the restaurant.
Our meal consisted of Ahi Tuna Tartare, Soft Shelled Crab, Pan Seared Halibut and Grilled Pork Chop. We finished our dinner with Apple Bread Pudding and Flourless Chocolate Cake.
We also enjoyed two delicious half bottles of Champagne and Chardonnay.
If we lived in SF, we would eat here often. Because we live just 4 hrs from the city, it is always a pleasure to dine here.
Highly recommended for a splurge dining experience in SF ( also fabulous for lunch as well)!!
Boulevard is one of our favorite restaurants in SF. Others come and go, but they are always top in service and food.
Dennis and Ben are amazing waiters and the kitchen produces the most awesome food! Thank you.
Excellent all around!
Service was great
We love this place. Food is consistantly. Good. Service is efficient and friendly. We keep going back. Most recent was for our anniversary!
Wonderful experience as always. Great food, service, location. Perfect for my youngest daughters birthday celebration!
Guests meals were excellent- service outstanding- I had my first “meh” meal at boulevard- chicken breast salad was sub par - appetizer outstanding- won’t keep me from coming back but I’ll be much more careful choosing- in the past I’ve always felt “throw a dart at the menu and get excellent meal”
I have been many times over the years. Think it’s getting old and needs a face lift. Food was good
Our reservations were for 5:30, right after the theater. I was delighted to see that the restaurant quickly filled up and stayed full. For us, it was a bit of a splurge, but well worth it. Food was fantastic. My friend ordered the Ahi Tuna Tatare and I was jealous, even better than my beet ravioli with truffles, which was pretty damn good.
