    Very good but not exceptional. The Hamachi crudo app and the chocolate cake dessert were wonderful. The pork chop and filet were very average and the filet was served much more medium than medium rare as ordered. Excellent wine list and knowledgeable sommelier. For the money, I think there are better, more creative options.

    This is a special place, with wonderful, attentive-but-not-overbearing, staff, incredible wine list, and flavors to die for. I had the fillet and it was about the best piece of meat I've had in years. The melted chocolate cake still haunts me. It isn't cheap, but in my opinion, it's worth it.

    We have repeatedly enjoyed Boulevard since Nancy Oakes opened the Restaurant in 1993. We have always considered Boulevard to be one of the top FIVE in the U.S. of A. Last Night I was SEVERELY DISAPPOINTED in almost EVERY way... We began with a Cocktail 'Skinny' Kettle One Gimlet and moved to 'Billecart Salmon Brut Rose Champagne. We then were told by the Waitstaff the Menu has become Prix Fixed @ $115 which was a Value, Even though restraining the Customer's Order Process. We ordered the Taglierini with Red Truffles (Adequate) and Seared Scallops (NOT seared properly) for Appetizers. We SPECIFICALLY ordered the Double Chop Rack of Lamb 'RARE' (Delivered 1/2 MR and the OTHER Double Chop Med Well) and the Berkshire Pork Chop 'Med Rare' delivered Med Well... BOTH were NOT even close to Our Preference. When Our Server came to our table 20 minutes later we showed her our Disappointment and she offered: 'I am Sorry'... It was too late to Replace even if she offered. NOTHING was discounted for THEIR Mistake. We had the Deserts of: Toffee Bread Pudding (Hells Kitchen could educate them on making this properly) along with a Chocolate Cake a la mode which was Ordinary @ Best. Our Server, who was NOT attentive in ANY way, did not offer us an After Dinner Beverage of any kind. I can NOT say I will NOT Return because of Our History; However, NOT rushing back... SAD...

The prix fixe menu has enough tasty options to please everyone at the table. The servers take very good care of us. Please see my previous review -- we love this restaurant.

    We were celebrating a birthday. The host handed my husband a birthday card signed by staff as we were seated. The 3 course meals have many options. The ahi carpaccio was wonderful as was my sea bass and cheese plate. My husband’s octopus was not tender and was sort of a blah plate he enjoyed his lamb and dessert of chocolate cake and other things. The staff were amazing and great wine list. It was expensive so I would only come for special occasions.

    We had a reservation, but opted to dine at the bar so that we could order ala carte, rather than from the prix fixe menu in the dining room. Jay behind the bar was very knowledgeable about the menu and wine, and made great cocktails. My wife and I shared the grilled Octopus. For our entrees, I had the Corvina Sea Bass and my wife had the Pork Chop. The food, cocktails, and wine all were excellent. A great experience and a place we would dine again.

    I've been eating at Boulevard since they opened 30 years ago and I've had some memorable meals here with my best friends, some still here, some long gone, so it holds a special place in my heart. Last night was no exception, the food, the service, the ambience were perfect and a special thanks to Mr John Lancaster, the great sommelier for taking care of my special wine.

    BoulevardResponded on November 9, 2022Thank you so much for your support and loyalty the past several years. We're very thankful. We're so happy this place has a special place in your heart, it truly does with us. John is our resident rockstar, and glad he took such great care of you and your wine. Happy Holidays!
