We enjoy a wonderful dinner with great service. We particularly appreciated the hostess’ remembering and arranging the corner table we had often sat at during past visits.

For a special occasion, Boulevard is certainly special!
The $89 three course Pre Fixe is reasonable considering the food quality, ambience, and service.

Sublime! Best ambience, decorated beautifully for the holidays, views of the bridge, excellent service, and very good food. Only downsides were no valet and move to a Prix Fixe menu. We have been coming here for decades, and Boulevard remains in a class by itself. We love this restaurant.

We actually enjoyed the food more than the pre-Covid Boulevard and of course that was also excellent, but this was very very good and excellent service.

I can’t complain anything. That was excellent dinner experience! I highly recommend the Boulevard for especially special occasions. Beautiful decor, excellent food, graceful, attentive and friendly service! My family get together for the two-day late Thanksgiving dinner made truly wonderful and memorable.

I continue to believe this is the best restaurant in San Francisco. Service is always impeccable, although not perfect in this case. The food is consistently outstanding. I started with a salad featuring fritters made of raclette cheese. I moved on to the pork entree, paired with a pear, barley and a bit of potatoes. I finished with two desserts: berries in a honey yogurt and a “brownie.” Superb all around.

Excellent, faultless cooking of seasonal California food. Surprises like Raclette fritters and gnudi, as well as old standbys like the pork chop keep me coming back.

The reopening of the restaurant has brought a lot of joy in our family! The remodeling has improved dramatically the absorption of noise in the restaurant. It’s now a fixed three or four course menu. It’s a little too much food for us but the dishes themselves were delicious and the food was served with beautiful details. Congratulations on the reopening and long live Boulevard!

Wonderful dinner in a lovely setting. All dishes had interesting flavor combos without being too precious. Presentation of each dish was a feast for the eyes. Attentive and helpful service. We all had the scallops which were incredible. Do yourself a favor and order the pumpkin brûlée for dessert. Wow! Room kind of loud for senior ears but not at an uncomfortable level we've experienced in some restaurants. Only negative remark is that the room's lighting is so low we had trouble reading the menu. A woman near us was using her cell phone flashlight to read hers. They helpfully brightened the light above our table but the level was still low. But please note, this in no way would discourage us from dining at Boulevard again. The restaurant is directly across from the ferry landing so taking the ferry from Oakland adds to the the fun of the experience.

We were excited to come back to Boulevard when it reopened after the Pandemic. We have been coming here for years for special occasions and the reopening did not disappoint. We had made reservations several weeks ago to the day because we had friends coming to SF for the first time and wanted to show them this jewel. My friends ordered an Old Fashion, which they said was perfectly made. I had brought wine, so that's what I had. For appetizers, we had the Beef Tartar and our friends had the Ahi Tuna. Both dishes were bursting with flavor. For our main course, my husband and I split the Bone in Ribeye cooked medium rare, our friends the Scallops. We all shared bites when our main courses arrived. The Ribeye was perfectly cooked and probably one of the best steaks that I have ever had. The seasoning on the steak was so scrumptious. The scallops were very good, but did not hold a candle to the ribeye. We weren't really hungry for dessert but we tried the chocolate cake and pumpkin brulee. I wished we had more room because they were amazing. The service was impeccable, the ambiance was very cozy and intimate. The only down side, was the pricing on the menu was a little confusing. They should be a little more straight forward with the pricing. Of course we will be back. Can't wait for the next occasion.
