I always enjoy the lovely ambiance, excellent service and consistently excellent food at this classic San Francisco boite near the Embarcadero. On today's visit I had an excellent lobster bisque (which did not have big chunks of lobster in it like the Rotunda's, so I give the edge to the Rotunda on the bisque), and as my main dish their...

I was a little disappointed here. The food was very good, service bordering on poor to average and the atmosphere was not really anything. I think I had a high expectation from other reviews. I wouldn't recommend unless all you care about is eating and leaving. To pay their prices, I expect more.

The best angus beef you can find! Start with a cocktail and enjoy this top place in San Francisco. Just delicious.

I had eaten here many years ago and have been wanting to return for some time. The place has lost none of it's appeal. For a first class meal in an old historic building near the Embarcadero Boulevard cannot be beat. Service is excellent. The bar serves fantastic cocktails. The food is to die for. I had a quail dish... More

First, the staff is all very pleasant- happy to help you choose a dish. Also, attentive beyond your imagination! The menu changes often, and the menu is small so though you may not have many items to choose from, know everything will be exquisite and beautiful! Fresh ingredients are plated so your eyes and stomach are in for a treat!... More

I had the opportunity to enjoy lunch here with a friend who is a local. He frequents the restaurant often and espoused its merits. He was right! I thoroughly enjoyed our table with its outside view as well as the decor. Of course, then there was the food which was very good - I tried an appetizer of fried stuffed... More

Five of us had a reservation here on a Thursday evening. My husband and I had dined here with friends last December and it was amazing on all counts. From the immediate and professional service, the quality of cocktails, appetizers and entrees, the spot-on suggestion of wines to complement the entrees... it was a 10 evening!

The first thing going into Boulevard is how nice the place looks. It's actually much nicer than what you pay for (does that make sense?). The food is great, making it a perfect place for many ocassions.

I've been coming here for at least 10 years and it is always incredible. In the financial district near the waterfront in a beautiful, older building. This is a higher end place, and somewhere I take clients for important meetings or closing a deal. The restaurant is busy and bustling, but not too loud. The servers always respect your privacy,...
