The best food and service bar none. Third time time here and never disappointed.
I booked on open table, selected special occasion, so we had a table with a view of the bay bridge at night. Wine pairing, good beer, amazing starters and food. Fish, beef, and pork rib... stunning ambiance to meet my friend moving to the Bay Area for a big new job. Service is over the top traditional.
Great food & service!
Outstanding service with traditional values. We asked questions about the cocktails and the waiter was forthcoming and later the waiter corrected his understanding
of the unique liquor flavors in the cocktail menu. The meal flavor profiles were exquisite and worth every penny. I will come back again and highly recommend Boulevard. In fact, you leave craving the eloquent amazing meal we experienced
I was there several years ago and it was fantastic - It's great to see that they have maintained high quality and great service.
The food was good but not outstanding. I expected more in terms of flavor
Really enjoy this restaurant. Next time want to sit at counter where you can watch the chefs up close.
Really great food and service, but way too noisy. Skip it if you or someone in your party has hearing difficulties and you want to have conversation.
Everything was delicious and the service amazing. A little loud and disappointed about this for the money you spend. Huge staff was impressive to watch. Food was good. But not spectacular.
Food was excellent. Comfortable seating. Lively atmosphere.
Would not currently recommend. Food was so bad and cold it had to be sent back. Waiter was so-so. Havre been eating here for 25 years and now know why they lost their Michelin Star rating back in 2016. For $100 per person, too many other great restaurants. Will not be returning. Sad! End of an era.
We took my mother-in-law here for a birthday. It was a great experience, and we all enjoyed the food and the experience very much. My spouse and her mother had the duck breast, and I had the lamb T-bone, which was served off-the-bone.
The duck and the lamb, along with the side dishes, and our appetizers (poke, escargot, and beet salad, respectively), were delicious. The only downside was that the off-the-bone lamb T-bone had a few really gristly parts. My own preference would have been to get the T-bone with the bone in, and then carve up the meat on my own terms, in which case the gristly bits wouldn't have bothered me. As it was, I had gristle stuck in my teeth for most of the meal.
Excellent food, the waiter did not rush us so we had a relaxing dinner with friends that we have not seen in several years, the atmosphere was elegant and we could have a nice conversation and hear ourselves without shouting, it was a lovely dinner! The waiter made several excellent recommendations when asked and everything was delicious and expertly plated!
Wish the reservationist who calls to confirm would be nicer, not as abrupt on the phone. Otherwise, an ever-classic and wonderful place for any meal!
My favorite restaurant in a city full of great restaurants! One of the oldest and one of the most consistent. I’ve never had a bad meal at Boulevard. Congratulations to chef Nancy Oakes for her ability to produce consistently delicious food throughout the years!
I really feel that it is the best restaurant in SF
long time fan of boulevard. Dinner was mostly excellent , but pork chop was a bit tough.
Great food and service. We let them know through OpenTable that we were there to celebrate a birthday, and there was a birthday card from the staff waiting for us on our table when we arrived.
I would call this place a "foo-foo" restaurant. Ambiance is nice. Food looks pretty. But not much substance in the dishes. My GF and I ordered the avocado salad and the baked/grilled halibut (we split both). The Avocado salad was essentially a few small chunks of avocado, mixed in with shredded lettuce and cabbage, and a light dressing. Price was About $16 for less than a dollar in ingredients. Very disappointing. The Halibut came with some wild rice and baked cauliflower, in a lemon sauce. Small portion of fish, and the small pieces of cauli were too much on the "crunchy" side, and the rice was, well, rice. Thirty nine dollars. If you want a restaurant where "appearance" matters more than "substance," well, this is the place for you.
The food was outstanding - beautifully presented, tasted superb, and nice amount. The flavors went together very well. Wine was outstanding - tasted 2 pinots and 2 cabs. Atmosphere is really nice too - classy place, but not too stuffy. Prices are pretty high, so for us, it was more of a special occasion. Worth it though!!!
Boulevard has been one of my go-to restaurants in SF for many years. Their team came through for us yet again, from the moment we entered until we left. Boulevard's wine selection and wine professionals would make the place worth a visit even if the food weren't quite as good ... but it is SO good and so well presented that dining there is just a delight. My wife and I love this place and plan to come back again and again.
Great experience & great food. Will recommend.
Consistently high quality food over the 20+ years its been in business, the food is always delicious & well-resented, the staff is well-prepared, the ambiance is lovely.
Boulevard used to be extraordinary. But it was just good food this time. Disappointing.
This is a great restaurant. I came with my family with two kids. Even though they are the only children in the restaurant. It didn't seem too odd to be in there. All the servers are friendly. We had a great experience.
We had a lovely lunch to celebrate a birthday. The service was first class and the food delicious. Highly recommend the Boulevard.
fabulous food, ambience, and service. What more could one want?
This is probably our tenth visit to Boulevard over its many years in business. How do you say food is outstanding as usual. How do you say service was outstanding as usual. The one note that was off was wine service in which we asked for a little guidance and were disappointed by the sommelier's choice.
Superb food and service - very attentive and helpful for this single diner.
Boulevard remains a classy great place for a good meal and/or celebration. The menu is extensive enough and the wine list incredible. We had a nice birthday dinner and good service.
Great food and service. I highly recommend it for lunch .
The Boulevard is always a spectacular dinner event. We have been dining there since it opened. The preparation is perfect. The restaurant has very high standards, always the finest quality of food. I particularly enjoy the expertly prepared purees on every dish. My husband and I feel it is the best in the City. And of course the ambiance is great and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly.
As always - excellent service - very good food and great ambiance.
Even though 20 years on Nancy O continues to deliver. Food on point, menu changes daily, even though I missed the beef cheeks and scallops, the choices perfect, the lamb delicious, and wine suggestion inspired. Going back next week. Consistently in my top 5.
Great menu choices and service. Courteous and considerate staff
Excellent as usual.
I lived in the Bay Area and ate at the counter by the kitchen on the day Boulevard opened. I keep coming back whenever I'm in SF. It is a fabulous restaurant--one of the best!
On this visit I brought a friend newly moved to the Bay Area from Paris for her first visit. She loved it although thought the portions were massive compared to Paris.
On the whole everything was great but I think that the kitchen is not trying as hard. For example, the tuna crudo was very tasty but just kind of dumped on the plate. The lamb chop was off the bone & perfectly cooked but not really arranged in the center of the plate but piled on one side. My friend's duck was arranged perfectly. No explanation but not what I expected.
I'll definitely return but I was a bit disappointed.
Meeting friends from Scotland on their first visit to San Francisco. The food was adequate but not particulaly special. The service was erratic and the prices were to high for the value.
