We had such a great dual birthday dinner celebration. The food was delicious and the service, especially the hostess made the night extra special.... she topped it off with a lovely glass of bubbly for each of us on the house. It felt like home away from home. We can't wait for our next dinner at Boulevard Seafood Co. Thanks :-)

Charming restaurant with excellent service and atmosphere. The restaurant manager came by our table regularly to ask how the food was and if we needed anything. The food is very good and the wine by the bottle is reasonably priced. We’ll definitely go back.

Need to salt fish or put salt on table don’t be cheap with tartar sauce make wine glasses larger, don’t put extra dining tables on top of customers.

I thought the food was just ok. Not terrible, but I won't go back unless someone really wants to go there. In fairness, I felt the same way about Henry's. People loved it, but I never had a good meal there.

Second visit to Boulevard is better than the first. So great to have a neighborhood (for me) spot that has every indication of lasting. The scallop appetizer was delicious - two perfectly cooked sea scallops enveloped in a very tasty melange of lentils, apple smoked bacon and a celeriac froth. Duck spring rolls are my go to forever.
Mains - swordfish and arctic char. I ordered medium and will adjust to medium rare next time. Mashed potatoes with arctic char were creamy and comforting.
Wine selection is excellent. no room for dessert, but maybe next time.

This is a great addition to Upper West Side dining options, perfect for a weekend brunch,
happy hour oysters and cocktails, lunch or dinner. Casual and excellent. A new neighborhood go-to.

This is a neighborhood gem, friendly, reasonably priced, sound level moderate because Upper West Siders like to talk to each other over the table, featuring delicious fresh seafood (though the menu says carnivores have some choices too). I liked its predecessor, Henry's, but I'm coming to cherish Boulevard Seafood.

We have been here many times since it reopened (from Henry’s). We usually have cocktails and share some “small plates.” Interesting variety and quite good. Main courses: grilled salmon and burgers are excellent.
Only complaint: we were meeting friends who arrived first and were seated. It was windy and cold out. The table was near the back next to French doors that were not closed tightly nor could they be. My husband explained to the hostess it was quite cold because of the draft and requested a different table (it was very early so there were plenty of empty tables); however, she seemed perturbed and came back to our table (we were now standing) and pulled the heavy, dark velvet drape over the windows which now made the area dark (but not in a good way). I said it would not do. Still with attitude,she said we could choose another table of which there were many with the caveat “not one that was being set up” — as if we might.
Her attitude was unnecessary and surprising since the staff has been lovely every time we have been there (I would guess at least 6 times).

We have now been to Boulevard 3 or 4 times and it does not disappoint! This time was dinner for my husband's birthday.. oysters, crab cakes, lobster risotto. He had a fabulous spicy bloody mary and I had a great rosé. Too full for dessert but choices sounded fantastic! Already looking for opportunities to return.

Boulevard Seafood was previously Henry's. I am a longtime Henry's fan who tried Boulevard Seafood for the first time last week. I was not disappointed. It has many of the menu items from Henry's I loved best and new ones that make the overall menu even better. The ambiance and service were wonderful and it remains a good value. I will definitely be back.

Greeting couldn't be nicer. Shown to table with joy and welcome. Excellent service, cheerful, accurate, helpful, timely — delightful waitperson. Food superb. Corn chowder excellent. Only thing I might have wanted to be aware of was that the sauce and garnish on the crab cakes was very similar to the corn chowder. One should not order both, if you want a variety of tastes. Otherwise all was great and I will be back!

The food and ambience are always very good. The "private dining" from the generous separation of the tables is special. However -- the service is always suspect. The waiters seem not to have one staton, so they are all over the place, often hard to find. No one seems responsible for your table. I asked four (4!) different waiters for bread, with no result. I had to speak with the manager to get bread. This is not atypical at the poorly managed Boulevard Seafood.

My wife and I enjoyed our appetizers and entrees. The service was fine and very friendly. Our only disappointment was with the dessert which was called “Milk Chocolate Bread Pudding.” What came out to the table, after a rather long wait, seemed something like a vanilla cupcake which may have had some chocolate (hard to tell) but wasn’t anything like what we’ve enjoyed as bread pudding in the past. If we weren’t running late, I would have spoken with the manager regarding some sort of adjustment. Do go and enjoy the rest, but “86” on the $9 bread pudding.”

The appetizer salmon poke or poque was delightful, citrus and other flavors mixed. Original, fresh. Unusual.
The best thing is the space, breathing space, room to converse pleasantly with companions while enjoying a fine dinner. Don’t change this!

food excellent, very good service, altho had to ask for lemon and bread a few times and the busboy was a little TOO attentive - almost lost one of my unfinished plates! Candles are TOO atmospheric. Could not see food at all. Otherwise, ambiance is similar to what it was with Henry's - which is why we keep on going back as our neighborhood restaurant with friends!

Superb seafood cuisine. The chef is a genius at combining unexpected ingredients with the greatest of skill, and a talent for surprising the palette in the most delicious ways. I had a rich guilty-pleasure seafood risotto that led me miles off my diet, but was worth it with big rich chunks of lobster and plenty of shrimp in creamy rich rice steeped in truffle oil. (Only one scalllop though. Would have loved another.) On the other end of the scale, a perfectly fine kale salad to start, with grapes, almonds and parmessan. My partner had the excellent salmon, and in previous visits I have had a wonder meaty Arctic char. Everything is worth a try, and the wait staff if friendly and efficient.

This place which used to be the place to go when you wanted to be able to talk to each other at your table now has loud music and a noisy bar crowd which completely changes the ambiance and noise level. I suppose it's better for young people, but not so good for the senior citizen.

My most recent visit to Boulevard Seafood was particularly enjoyable. My friend and I enjoyed our food, as we have on most of our previous visits. The service was friendly and courteous and the service was a bit more efficient than it was on our previous visit (perhaps because the restaurant wasn't terribly crowded). We noticed there were some new items on the menu and I tried and greatly enjoyed a dessert I hadn't had before (tiramisu).

I've been to Boulevard Seafood numerous times since it opened last autumn. The restaurant offers very attractive and comfortable surroundings, friendly service, and very good food. It's become my restaurant of choice when I dine with a friend who lives in the neighborhood. We usually get together about twice a month, so we've had the opportunity to sample a variety of dishes. Some we've liked better than others, but we've enjoyed every visit.
