Sunday night 4 of us ate at Boulevard. We are talking perfection. What service, what a beautiful place, and the tastes of everything. We are very close friends and share food.

Appetizer; soft shelled crab, tuna tartare, scallops on risotto, and the winner. . . crab and green papaya. All were perfect, but the crab dish, marvelous.

Entrees: beef fillet; pork rib, pork belly, and pork tenderloin; salmon on a corn dish with country ham; and the winner is lamb with morels, English peas, and fingerling potatoes. really there are no losers in this, All were wonderful.

Before the dessert we had a chesse tray. very good

We rarely have dessert, but had to go for it this time. We had sorbet, 3 flavors; creme brulee; s'mores this was ice cream, brownies and a mousse; and I don't remember the 4th dessert. All were wonderful.

We had 5 cocktails, and an expensive bottle of wine $88. ( We had much to celebrate ) Total bill was $427, which we added $80 tip. If you ignore the wine and cocktails, a very reasonable bill for wonderful food.

This has become my most favorite place. It was a lovely evening, the waiter was fun, but not our new best friend, the flavors were incredible, beautiful setting. Why did we wait so long to eat there?

  1. Boulevard is my go to choice for consistantly excellent food, service, and atmosphere at a "reasonable" price point. Glad you loved it.

      I find Boulevard's prices reasonable given the quality, but it is one of the most expensive restaurants in SF.

        Perhaps I should have been more specific than just using quotation marks, but like you, I find it a good overall value. I also always seem to spend less than at some of the other piggy bank breakers like Mina, Aqua, Fifth Floor, etc.

    2. I've occasionally had underwhelming meals there -- but that's only because of my usual insanely high expectations of the place. They have always delivered and made every meal there memorable.
