“Incredible Private Dinner at Boulevard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We went to Boulevard for an event and ate downstairs in a private room. The private room, service and food were incredible. My scallop appetizer and salmon entree were absolutely mouthwatering. Would definitely return to eat upstairs, which has a great kind of '20's vibe and was buzzing with activity.

“Fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

My wife, daughter and I enjoyed a lovely evening with outstanding cocktails, fine wine, great food, and excellent service. This restaurant was within easy walking distance of our hotel and near the Ferry Building. The wait staff was courteous, efficient and friendly. The only challenging thing was finding the entry door, and I suspect that was our problem. I would recommend this to anyone. It's a marvelous restaurant.

“Very popular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This popular restaurant near the Ferry Building and the office district seems to draw crowds every evening. Clientele seems to include a large number of locals. Food is quite good, a little on the casual side, not gourmet but satisfying.

Wines by the glass are only ok but the pours are generous. We come here because it is one of the few places where you can order Abalone (farmed because it has been illegal to harvest from the Bay for many years). Abalone, at its best is like tasty scallop or fresh calamari and if you enjoy either dish you should try Abalone.

The bar is not very large as dining tables are everywhere. There is a second counter/bar for dining outside the kitchen for those who like to watch the food preparation. Service is excellent and they are very good at honoring reservations.

“Great experience, exciting food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

We were a big group so had a private, downstairs room. The meal was really quite an experience and the wine list extensive. However, I wished I could sit upstairs to experience the less formal cafe style experience. One can watch the chefs prepare food in the kitchen, or the night time passers-by. While it seats quite a lot of customers, it is not noisy, yet also not stiff and formal. Just a great experience. Highly recommended.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

What a fantastic dinner. We are visiting SF from Denver, so we were looking for good seafood. We are here on a Baby-moon, so my wife is not drinking. See was excited to see that they had a drink menu of non-alcoholic drinks that were fun served in a martini glass. We got a Australian truffle starter that was on special which was great. For entrees we got sea bass and a scallop starter. Both dishes were fantastic. It was obvious that Chef is passionate about what he does. Every bite seemed to be thought out! The only negative to the experience was that we were seated right next to the front door, even having a reservation a month in advance. Highly recommended experience!
