    Dinner was very meh. Went with 2 other couples and ordered several items off the menu so we were able to try a lot of dishes. Only dishes I would probably order again were the Shrimp, Oysters and the Hamachi. Everything else was so over smoked-tasting, especially the corn. Brussel sprouts were super mushy and even when they tried to bring us a new order they were only slightly less mushy. We didn't order any of their meat entrees, so maybe those are better than all of the apps, sides and raw dishes we tried.

    Overall my wife and I very much enjoyed Bulevar, and we the food and cocktails were outstanding. I perceive this as upscale, authentic Mexican cuisine unlike most I have become accustomed to in Texas, and some of the flavor profiles and combinations were some of the best I’ve ever had. The ambience was lively and romantic, and the server was timely and knowledgeable. There were a few slight exceptions. We sat on the enclosed heated patio, and the temperatures fluctuated pretty dramatically. I would recommend they not allow people to sit completely outside when it’s in the 40s in order to not have a large door wide open to the outside elements in order to serve them. That said, there was a really nice artificial fireplace and some legit heaters. Also I found it a bit frustrating that the smallest cut of steak they had was 25 ounces. I am aware they are meant to be shared, but what if your wife isn’t interested in eating steak? That said, I ended up being thankful at the end being pushed towards the Mixto Pibil which was excellent and something a bit new. I would’ve liked it if my server had exhibited a little more personality, but overall she did a nice job. Lastly, although the cocktails were very good, I struggled to perceive value at the price point and size. All that said, we will definitely return to Bulevar and will likely bring along friends next time.

    We loved our experience here the food was delicious, our waitress was a wonderful, answered all our questions with lots of patience. This is not a kids place, or a quick in and out. It is however an elevated food experience, that is 100% gluten free, but for those who don't need gf you'll still love it. It is on the pricey side, but we felt the experience and tastes were worth it! Steak options are best for a group as they only offered large sizes (though those may change from night to night), We loved the raw hibachi and the duck app...those two were our faves of the evening. And great location to catch the sunset!

    Honestly the best dining experience I’ve ever had. Fantastic service, the staff knew the menu so so well. We weren’t sitting in a section that did the happy hour menu, but they accommodated us anyways. The food was absolutely incredible too!!! The view was also pretty special!

    We LOVE this restaurant- it’s swanky but comfortable and the food is to die for. Excellent drinks and killer happy hour specials. So glad it opened- check it out. My tip is to order corn tortillas with your entrees and eat them as tacos so you can share - and I enjoy them more that way.

    Was feeling very excited about dining here, but overall left feeling slightly disappointed. Service started out really good but declined as the night progressed. Reservation was at 8:15PM for a party of 5, ordered everything from first round of drinks, to appetizers, to our entrees within the first 15 minutes. The first round of drinks took probably around 15-20 minutes to make it to the table, and the first appetizer we ordered (along with the drinks) didn’t come out until notified a second time after drinks arrived (it was just herby guacamole). We had ordered the sopes after the guac and somehow those came out first. Our entrees came out around 9:30PM or so - which I can understand due to prime time and the fact it’s family-style portions. And, we were very grateful the manner in which the appetizer incident was corrected and the birthday celebration was very thoughtful. However, over 2 hours for a dining experience considering we didn’t intentionally hang around to sit and talk after seemed excessive given we sat right away. Towards the end the “server team” was no where to be found for a solid 30 minutes so we had to get the attention of a different server to assist us. The food is still worth coming back but hopefully it won’t be so lengthy.

    It was not great. We were seated by the bar. Super loud. Waitress was excellent. Service was slow. Appetizers and one main course came out all together. Second main course took forever. The food wasn’t that impressive and it was expensive, we won’t be back.

    They did a great job transforming the old space into a fresh, modern, and warm space. The salsas, appetizers, and raw section were all top notch. Our favorite bite was the crab tostada. As far as the entrees, the scallop and the duck were the favorites — super flavorful. The swordfish, which came highly recommended, was just ok. The tres leches was the better dessert, but overall the desserts were just ok. Overall, a good meal and a different experience. The service was great which is rare for Austin. We will come back and try all the other items in the appetizer and raw bar.

    This was our first visit to Bulevar and we loved it! Our waiter Gregory was very charismatic and knowledgeable about the menu. Food came out in a timely manner and we did not feel rushed. The decor was beautiful! Felt like a night in a swanky Tulum styled restaurant. Our waiter also informed us that everything on the menu is gluten free so that’s a plus for food sensitive patrons!

    This was a family celebration. The food was fabulous. We love vegetables and the black bean queso, guacamole and sweet potato was amazing. The blistered shishito peppers were wonderful. Our booth was in front of chefs and our wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Will definitely return soon.

    Our server had great energy, advice, and spent a good ratio of time between waiting on us and letting us be. The decor/lighting is very well done. The drinks were phenomenal! Our only slight gripe is the volume of chatter amongst the room - we were in the back corner and still had trouble hearing each other. But overall such a good experience - will come back again!

    We loved Bulevar! Was truly amazing... each dish was incredibly tasty! We had the guac, the salsa sampling, the steak, brussel sprouts, margs and more. In order to dine here, you must reserve 60 days to the day you want to dine. We can't wait to go back!

    Bulevar is a beautiful space. The inside decor and expansive patio are a wonder. The food we had that was good was the chicken and the crab tostada. Margaritas were also tasty. We really felt like the BONE IN filet was highly disappointing. They charge per ounce and we were told it was a 20 0z filet. The wood fired taste was amazing but for 70.00 we got 4 oz of meat and 16 oz of bone. We will return perhaps for happy hour or stick to the non-steak entrees.

    Our group really enjoyed Bulevar, the service, food and cocktails were excellent! Our server did a lovely job of walking us through the menu. The transformation of this building was stunning! The noise level, tho, was on the verge of unbearable for a party of 4 to converse. We were seated right next to the open kitchen/serving area and the bar was along our back. The hard surfaces and open concept requires diners to talk loud to be heard, thereby scaling up the noise issue. Upon return, we will ensure we get seating outside or along the side of the main dining area where sound appeared somewhat buffered.

    Everything was really good. Only notes is it’s very loud so the server had a hard time hearing us and we almost ordered a $175 filet medium well but someone thankfully they sold it because i asked for the pork chop. Most of the food was seasoned 80% of the way a little more salt especially on the meat would have full sent it.
