BLVD is a classic American restaurant located in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood that draws inspiration from Hollywood’s Sunset Blvd circa 1950: the golden era’s most iconic strip of dining and entertainment establishments. BLVD combines the glamour, sophistication, and decadence that defined Hollywood in the 1950s with contemporary cuisine, craft cocktails, and modern music, creating an exciting dichotomy between restaurants and personas of the past and present.

Overall good. Prices reasonable. BEAUTIFUL decor—a bit retro disco while elegant. Food good. Filet good. Whole trout excellent. Scallops good. Like a little better sear. But, Chef knows how to cook seafood. Brussel sprouts-excellent.

On to “.....what in God’s name were you thinking”???


Short rib dumplings with goat cheese beet tartare porcini brodo and black truffle—-sounds yummy. NOPE!!!!
Dumpling filling good—-over cooked but flavorful. But why would you put beet juice layered with TONS of fresh dill and cubes of raw beet over a doughy dumpling and think that could possible taste good????? Just think about that. It was AWFUL. If you’re going to use dill as your herb to flavor a sauce think about using a cream base or if you’re using raw beet keep it in your salad type dishes. Medium temperature raw Beet juice over pasta with a huge amount of dill is just down right wrong.
Smoked lentils. Husband thought it was hunks of “spam” fried and thrown into stewed lentils. I went with eckrich farms smokies cut up and thrown into stewed lentils——who knows. The sodium level was off the scale and just awful.

The service was great. The food was mediocre and the prices were astronomical. The concept is Hollywood but that gets lost and is not obvious or inviting. We won’t go back.

The food at Blvd has gone downhill. What was once a pleasant experience has turned to disaster. I would not recommend it to anyone interested in fine dining.

First stop on a much needed GNO and we were not disappointed. We ordered west coast oysters, which were amazing along with a few other plates we shared including the beet salad, lamb chops and filet. Service was great. Dario was attentive and answered all of our questions. I have a gluten issue and they were accommodating to that. I would definitely go back.

Second time at BLVD and I had a tough time expecting the experience to go as wonderful as the first time, but it was every bit as wonderful. The food is outstanding. Cooked perfectly and delicious. The ambiance is cozy and sexy. The service I can’t say enough about. It is hands down the best service I’ve had at any restaurant in Chicago. The staff is knowledgeable, kind, attentive, and just all around amazing. Keep up the awesome work BLVD staff! You guys are outstanding and I can’t wait to come back.

I’ve had dinner at BLVD on several occasions and I’ve never been disappointed. The staff is phenomenal and so attentive. They really take care of you from the moment you walk in and walk out. Our server was well versed and knew exactly what we wanted and provided us with great dining options and we got we asked for and more. Thank you for always making our experience at BLVD so wonderful!

It was impeccable! My scallops and salmon were cooked perfectly. Everything was delicious! I will definitely go back again to try the risotto and one of their pasta dishes. The desserts were fantastic as well. The service was amazing and our waiter was so kind. Finally, the decor was so beautiful even down to the women's bathroom. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!

BLVD was the perfect choice I could have made for a special date night! The pictures of the interior don't do any justice compared to when you're actually there! You really feel as if you're stepping back in time to a luxurious old-Hollywood restaurant. I requested a booth and had flowers delivered to the restaurant and the BLVD staff was more than able to accommodate everything! Our night was truly special thanks to everyones help, we are so excited to return!!! Our waitress Stephanie was an absolute charm, she let us know the ins and outs of the menus, really connected and shared plenty of laughs with us!
