A nice place- the former Henry’s. Service was a bit slow- lots of busboys but a shortage of waiters/waitresses. The ceviche appetizer- a special that night, was excellent. My snapper was a bit over cooked, as was were my companion’s scallops. Prices are a bit high for this neighborhood. A nice try, but needs to do better.

I realize the UWS is a culinary wasteland, and lots of ambitious restaurants fail. So they will have to deliver an excellent product to succeed here.

The food and presentation are both very good, at reasonable prices. Our server lacked experience.
The quiet atmosphere for table/space layout kept from when the restaurant was Henry's is very welcome and conducive to both conversation and business lunch meetings. Thanks for preserving this.

After a shaky start, this place has found its legs. The menu is extensive, and they can deliver on it. Quite high quality food, though not exquisite, of course. The wine list is pretty good. The only problem is too many unprofessional servers.

Great food. Excellent service. Reasonable prices. But best of all, this upscale neighborhood bistro has taken care not to overstuff it's attractive space with too many tables. Unlike most other NYC restaurants, you can actually have a conversation without having to talk over everyone else. Perfect for a business meeting.

Following Henry's tradition, Boulevard Seafood did not disappoint; in fact, we have consistently been in love with this place. The almond-crusted halibut was perfect: moist and crunchy; soft-shell crab was also excellent and the cservice was friendly and prompt. We got to sit outside on a beautiful spring evening, with fabulous NY light as the sun set. In fact, it was so 'right' we all decided on dessert, just to keep it going a bit longer. Banana-chocolate bread pudding! Yum.

We used to go here all the time when it was Henry's until the food and service started to go downhill. Have been very happy so far with the reopening as Boulevard Seafood - but mostly for the oyster/clam happy hour at the bar! We went for brunch on Sunday and it was disappointing. Our waitress was very good but had too many tables to do on her own so it was slow. And the table was totally bare....we had to ask for salt and pepper- even had to ask for butter with the toast. Toast is no longer included with omelettes and even though I asked for my salad dressing on the side - the salad itself was soggy. And for those prices I am not sure we would do this again

While I'd recommend Boulevard Seafood for its food, the noise level made it difficult to have a conversation. Also, it was very busy on Saturday night, and a manager had to pitch in when our server disappeared.

The coffee is consistently terrible, not drinkable. Awful stuff.
The waiter service is poor. They take your order and you will may see them again. Badly managed.
You need to special order bread for the table, or you will not get bread.
The food is very good. I go there for the atmosphere. The tables are far apart, which is desirable if you do not want to share your conversation with strangers.

We all loved Henry's and were sad to see it close. But what has replaced it is even better! A little pricier but the food is wonderful, the service very attentive and the tables are spaced so far apart that I wondered why they didn't have dancing too. That much room. What a refreshing change from the crowded, noisy restaurants in the neighborhood. Great for a special occasion, dinner with someone you actually want to talk to, with a well balanced menu. Loved it!

I have liked this restaurant for some time, particularly when it was called Henry's. This visit was disappointing as my mussels were in a thin, watery curry-flavored broth that wasn't very good, and my husband's rack of lamb wasn't very good, either. Our friend enjoyed the lemon sole. The almond cake dessert didn't hit our spot, either. The service was very good and the ambience is always appealing and welcoming.

I've been to Boulevard Seafood NY many times. I dine there regularly with a close friend who lives in the neighborhood. We were both very pleased with our most recent meal. I've always enjoyed the food I've ordered, but on a few occasions my friend has been disappointed with her entree. This time she was delighted and we both thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We particularly appreciate the ambiance, both the handsome decor and the interesting crowd that dines at Boulevard.

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 :-)

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 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.
