Perhaps the reason why the food was so average was because it was crowded and the staff seemed stressed. 3 in our group had to send their steak back because it was rare and not near medium.

Was looking for more Mexican food and this was listed as Tex Mex. the guacamole made tableside was excellent but hard time finding Mexican dishes on the menu. All aside the quality of food here is great. We tried the coconut shrimp and they were excellent! Might be less expensive places but Boudros is worth a try

Excellent service starting with the hostess to the maitre d'. Reminded me of the French Quarter Restaurants prior to the hype. The seating is casual with an excellent view of River Walk Events. Best place to be, so reserve in advance for events. They will accommodate the best they can. I was there for the Christmas River Parade. The food... More

Our 4 day stay was rainy and chilly but on our last night we went to Boudro's for dinner and it was one of the highlights of our visit. Wonderful food, appetizer, 2 wines, salad and. Shared entree for $62! Fine dining and oh so tasty! Great service from a really fun waiter!! Would love to go there again.

I found the food over-rated by previous visitors. Average at best. The filet was not particularly tender or juicy. The lobster could have used another minute in the boiling water. Numerous large parties diminished the attention given to a couple.

Been to Boudro's several times, most recently a couple months ago. With dates, and with friends and family. Every entree has been well above average. The service as well. You can sit inside, or at tables next to the rail on the river. They have heaters and even blankets when the weather is cool!

Had lunch their as we were told it is a place not to be missed. The food was average and their signature margarita wasn't really worth the cost. It isn't any better or worse than the other restaurants on. The. River Walk that are over priced and over hyped.
