Boulevard Tips (4)

Boulevard: A Splurge

Art-Deco styled bistro with a revolving door entrance. Bustling but with gorgeous views of the Bay Bridge, especially at night. We had the Filet Mignon which was divine, and the presentation was very creative, with slices of potato arranged in blocks like a tower. Service was polite but a bit rushed, despite the fact that we'd mentioned when reserving that we were on our honeymoon.

Boulevard: Very Creative Menu & Decor - One of SF's Best

This restaurant is a visual delight for the eyes,
it's beautiful, elegant and creative. With vaulted brick ceilings, floral banquettes, a mosaic floor, and tulip-shaped lamps, the setting equals the exquisite food presented like a work of art.
The attached photo was the best I could do,
but a photo cannot capture the beauty and
ambiance of this restaurant.

Voted #1 each year in the Zagat Guide, the food and decor come together to create the ultimate dining experience. Chef Nancy Oakes is San Francisco's favorite.

If you want a sample of California cuisine at it's finest, you will find it at Boulevard. It's expensive, but well worth it. The ambiance makes for a romantic evening with a view of the water and piers. Make a reservation, and save
room for dessert.

Although I'm not wealthy, every once in a while
I like to splurge and enjoy the luxury and quality
of an excellent restaurant . Boulevard is an
example of the very best.

Favorite Dish Anything that you would order at Boulevard will
be delicious and presented in a beautiful way.

Boulevard: An Elegant Environment & Festive, Inventive Fare.

Soft light filters through the bustling dining room, illuminating art nouveau details like sculptured light sconces and mosaic floors. The Embarcadero location ensures an expense-account crowd at lunchtime, with locals and gourmet-minded visitors enjoying the sparkling Bay Bridge views at night.
When you call to make a reservation--and you should, well in advance--ask for a table in back, with a view of the Bay Bridge. It's quieter there and quite romantic.

Favorite Dish Exceptional appetizers are the stars of Chef Nancy Oakes' seasonal menu. Stuffed with ricotta, a fried squash blossom pairs beautifully with a roasted porcini mushroom, dabs of pesto and tomato vinaigrette. Scallops topped by Dungeness crab salad rest on an artichoke puree surrounded by lemon butter sauce. Entrees can be uneven: A superb grilled lamb chop joins an underdone roasted lamb loin, while a New York steak with portobello mushroom dwarfs the accompanying potatoes and green beans. Better balanced is Petrale sole with fava beans and marinated baby fennel. For dessert, a combination of strawberries, pistachios and rhubarb in a rose-scented parfait turns out ravishing.

They serve modern american cusine. Hearty food and the portions are decent. The decor and ambiance are very posh. Ask for a table by the window with a view of the bay.

Favorite Dish The menu changes all the time, but the food is always good. Its pricey but worth it. A good special occasion place. I always take my parents here when they are in town.
