Bistro Boudin at Fisherman's Wharf: Recommended

I posted this review a few days ago under another topic heading, but I am afraid that it got buried. I want all you locals to know that there IS a great place with a view AND very good food at Fisherman's Wharf. You will not be embarrassed to bring your out of town guests there.

"Just want to say thanks to all the posters here. I used your answers to help determine where to hold a banquet at FW. Four of us went to Bistro Boudin last night to sample food from the main menu that is also on the banquet menu. It was OUTSTANDING!!!!

We sat at a table upstairs, very nice view of the wharf and Alcatraz.

To start we enjoyed the fresh sourdough and pumpernickle raisin bread (excellent!) basket with really fresh butter; the fresh goat cheese with pesto and cooked tomato relish; and the crab cakes (these were really great: not filled with bread crumbs, fabulously fresh).

For entrees, we sampled the halibut en cloche (aka Moroccan style) (excellent), the beef fillet (extraordinary), the casear salad and clam chowder in the bread bowl (good, but I am not a Caesar salad nor a New England clam chowder fan).

Dessert was the chocolate coconut tart and the warm berry crisp with a scoop of vanilla gelato. Both were delicious.

The service was outstanding. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant for locals and tourists alike. You will not be disappointed!"

  1. We, or at least I, seriously thank you for your report. I love to hear what worked for out-of-towners and what didn't. I am glad you had a great time.
