    Beautiful anniversary celebration for two st Boulevard. First time here. They got everything right. The food is delicious, fresh, flavorful and creative. Dino, our server, was professional, friendly and impeccably kind and generous. The ambiance is romantic, masculine and very ‘art nouveau’ in the best way possible. Throughout the meal the kitchen sent over complimentary snacks to entertain the palette. The pork chop was epic! As was the hot chocolate cake. Blvd: we’ll be back next time in town. Lizzie

    Boulevard was exceptional. The food was great from the bread and butter all the way through dessert. Had the hamachi crudo to start followed by the halibut and the peach pavlova to end. Service was amazing and decor was fabulous.

    From greeting to paying my check Boulevard was amazing. My son and I sat at the “chef’s counter” and watched magic happen in front of us. Both the executive chef and the chef/owner were working and overseeing the elegant preparation of each dish. Amazing food and truly a Five Star dining experience. David B.

    We had a great meal at Boulevard! Little hiccup with service in the beginning, but all was well and the meal was excellent. That Halibut was cooked perfectly! Great interior, not too loud and the desserts were a nice surprise.

    We were not aware that we’re going in to automatically pay $98 per person no matter what was ordered. We picked our three items and they were good. Prefer to have a restaurant where I can order items as I’m hungry or financially etc. Dennis was a great waiter. I was comfortable but our bill wit one wine and one iced tea snd food tax and tip was $310. I prefer a nice meal but not something with such a price tag.

    BoulevardResponded 5 days agoHi. For future reference our a la carte menu is available in the Bar/Lounge and our Chef's counter. Glad Dennis took great care of you. We do hope you visit us again.

    Don’t like the forced 3 course menu. For folks that don’t want red meat or fish, your out of luck bc there was no duck or chicken offered. The vegan option was sub par. Even the desserts were eh. What happened to the wonderful restaurant that never used to disappoint?

    What a disappointment. When we lived in San Francisco on Nob Hill we went to Boulevard usually once a week. It became our favorite! We had not eaten there since before Covid. We ordered several appetizers all of which were pretty awful and poorly prepared. My grilled octopus was so tough I could not cut it much less chew it. My husbands meat tartare was pathetic. No meat tartare seasoning. The stuffed zucchini blossom special that night was flavorless. The crab stuffing was not even a little warm and was chewy. The zucchini blossom was unrecognizable and was saturated with oil.They recommended a ravioli with porcini mushroom sauce. The porcinis were very good (3pieces). We left hungry. Nancy Oakes the owner was there supervising the kitchen. The kitchen quality control is not working. We are thinking they are dealing with inexperienced cooks. We sat at the bar which we usually do and noticed a lot of flour and deep frying. To their credit the restaurant was full. FYI I am a gifted home cook.
