    Don’t like the forced 3 course menu. For folks that don’t want red meat or fish, your out of luck bc there was no duck or chicken offered. The vegan option was sub par. Even the desserts were eh. What happened to the wonderful restaurant that never used to disappoint?

    What a beautiful choice to spend our anniversary dinner! Easy going reception, really knowledgable and friendly wait staff. Not one wait staff ever took a note or wrote anything down. And the food was so creative and delicious. The Hamachi Crudo was spectacular! Boulevard is a treasure!

    Boulevard is a special occasion place for us. Great food, extensive and wide-ranging wine list, creative deserts. Service is always top notch, and the ambience in the room is beautiful. A bit too expensive for every day dining, but well worth it.

    What a disappointment. When we lived in San Francisco on Nob Hill we went to Boulevard usually once a week. It became our favorite! We had not eaten there since before Covid. We ordered several appetizers all of which were pretty awful and poorly prepared. My grilled octopus was so tough I could not cut it much less chew it. My husbands meat tartare was pathetic. No meat tartare seasoning. The stuffed zucchini blossom special that night was flavorless. The crab stuffing was not even a little warm and was chewy. The zucchini blossom was unrecognizable and was saturated with oil.They recommended a ravioli with porcini mushroom sauce. The porcinis were very good (3pieces). We left hungry. Nancy Oakes the owner was there supervising the kitchen. The kitchen quality control is not working. We are thinking they are dealing with inexperienced cooks. We sat at the bar which we usually do and noticed a lot of flour and deep frying. To their credit the restaurant was full. FYI I am a gifted home cook.

    Service was great and the ambience was a bit louder than I expected. For the most part food was above average but the octopus was slightly chewy and I wasn’t a fan of the flavors of the dish overall. Scallops and soft shell crab dishes were delicious. Salmon and filet were cooked well. Finally the chocolate dessert cake was average. Overall, I’d come again for a nice meal with friends/family but not for an intimate date night.
