Just returned to our hotel after enjoying a fantastic dinner at Boulevard, the food,ambience and service were 1st class, I started with Alaskan king crab followed by lamb and to finish pear tatin.
If you love good food please make a reservation and treat your senses to a culinary explosion, it is expensive but worth every penny ;)

This is one of the best restaurant experiences we've had in years. Amazing food, fabulous presentation; upscale style, classic formal chic; fine dining at it's best but not stuffy at all. Great elegant vibe and lots of energy. Attracts an amazing eclectic crowd of all ages. We sauntered in with no reservations around 5:30 and sat in the front bar. Yes, bar dining at its best.

Food was ok. The service was slow, looked like the waiters were overwhelmed, brought us the wrong bottle of wine and wrong appetizer!

We have dined here on seven occasions. This past week, we spontaneously stopped in on a Friday night and was greeted graciously and without condescension that we did not have a reservation. In over 20 years of living in San Francisco, we have discovered that if you are willing to eat at the bar or in a side area, every type of high-end restaurant is available, with or without reservations.

Our spontaneity was rewarded. We sat in the side area and the little, clear panels kept us from intruding on or being intruded upon by other diners. Our server, Cliff (I think), was terrific and his timing was perfect. He knew exactly how to present wine and food--so refreshing to experience!

I enjoyed a lamb dish with pistachio/garlic puree with kale and little perfect potatoes nestled underneath the flawless lamb. The lamb resembled butter in texture and so so flavorful, I had to check again as to what I ordered. My husband had a fish dish which included some original vegetables and a light sauce which made the fish soar in flavor. We shared a Kistler Pinot Noir--and voila! THIS is the reason one goes out to dinner: to be taken care of and served flawless food.

Enjoy this restaurant when you are not in a hurry, enjoy La Belle Epoque, and want to remember what civilized dining requires.

We did not have reservations, and walked in. We dined at the chef's bar, which was so entertaining. Although the place was packed, our server was charming, attentive and along with the food, we had the perfect evening.
