    Waiter was very attentive. Food was very very good. We had the beef tartare, hamachi crudo, corn soup, soft shell crab and gigantic asparagus for appetizer. For main course, had the halibut, rack of lamb and pork chop. For dessert, had peach ice cream pavlova and chocolate cake. All very very good. The only thing to complain about is no more valet parking and it wasn’t that easy to find a parking space around there.

    Remarkably tasty food because it is so fresh! Still the best value in town, the best plated presentation, delicious and flavorful. Service was excellent. Art deco decor creates a certain vibe of luxe. Quiet enough to converse in but bustling busy. I love this place.

    Overall is an ok place to eat, nice atmosphere and setting. The food was variable, beef tartare starter was great. Scallop starter was lacking in texture and missing the acidity of something like green apple to balance the dish. Main course of halibut was great, served with a seaweed cracker and nicely presented. Rack of lamb was perfectly cooked but the sauce was far too sickly sweet. This was served with a potato purée and dried fruit and nuts, which added to the sweetness. Lacking in something earthy or more neutral to ground the dish and overall just too sweet.

    Our experience was mixed. The service was very slow. We were seated and waited 15-20 minutes before a server came to our table. My entree was excellent. However, my wife’s well-done steak was significantly over done, the surface was burned. Manager discussed with us and we received free coffee and a dessert. I expect better quality control at these prices!

    The boulevard has been a classic institution in the Embarcadero for at least a decade. However their recent change to a prefix menu and the ultimate cost per person, is not worth it our bill was over $625 for four people. That seemed really high, or maybe this is what it cost to go to a restaurant these days. In any event I could’ve use that money towards a much more useful endeavor.

    $98 prix fixe menu was a surprise and a huge disappointment! Have enjoyed many great meals at Boulevard over 20+ years but was shocked by this new policy. The food experience was great but the rigid prix fixe policy is obscene. A business meal for $200 per head should not be the new normal!

    Hi Bruce. We're sorry our new menu format came as a surprise to you last night. When your reservation was made online, there is a description of the refreshed and reimagined Boulevard experience on the page. We do offer our a la carte menu at the bar/lounge or the Chef's counter. We appreciate your loyalty for 20+ years now, and hope you do visit us again!

    We enjoyed an absolutely fabulous evening at Boulevard. Gina was our knowledgeable and gracious server. She helped us choose from a menu of many of our favorite dishes. I highly recommend either the hamachi in peanut milk and a spritz of lime, or the crab and avocado appetizer as a first course. The sea scallops, halibut and filet of beef were perfect for a main course. The desserts at Boulevard should not be missed and anything chocolate is a great choice. Dinner is served like it should be done, but rarely is anymore. A great place for a special occasion with special friends.

    BoulevardResponded on May 4, 2022

    We're glad you had an amazing experience with us! Gina does an amazing job describing our menu items, giving our guests a better understanding of what they will eat. Come back and try our Ahi Tuna Carpaccio, it's one of my favs. Have a great week ahead!

    The Staff was on point, as always and I was once again, feeling at home. Sharing once again with everyone else in the restaurant a relaxing, superlative, dining experience. You must simply soak it all in, a beautiful bar, lovely dining room, I could go on and on. The service, attentive. The food, sublime. A Sweet Corn Soup that was simply scrumptious, and decadent delight. Lamb Rack perfectly Medium Rare with crispy edge ribs that I shamelessly cleaned off the bone. If that was not enough, a Bananas Foster crepe desert that was simply lovely. Pare all of this with an amazing Wine selection with delicious cocktails and coffee. Caring service and always a treat to see the Exec Chef and Chef Owner taking care to ensure all is well. Yes, I keep coming back for more !

    Expectations were high and exceeded. This is still my number one restaurant for great food and being treated as a guest. Other high end eateries have treated us as if we were lucky to be at their place and not vice versa. The owner I believe is still an active influence on the culture of service. Please keep this alive, and it will always be welcomed.

    They had a quote on the bill when it was presented that said "the meal is the evening". If that was a case we had a very bad evening. The food was cold, the wine had sediment in the glass and they proudly charged a 6% surcharge no matter how much you spent. The Boulevard used to be a great restaurant however now sadly it is very average at best.
