    We had a disappointing visit to Boulevard for happy hour this past weekend. The service was subpar and slow considering there were only a few parties dining. Our biggest issue was the food - it was horrible. We were served lukewarm truffle fries, the taco meat was dry, and the meatballs were not up to par with other local restaurants who serve the same dish at a lower price. The fresh oysters were good and was the only thing good about the entire experience. For the price they charged for happy hour, it was not worth it. I would recommend going elsewhere like Coast or Joe Fortes for happy hour instead.

    The food was alright. Oysters weren’t served with horseradish and didn’t taste fresh. Service wasn’t the best, my group was a bit uncomfortable and the vibe was just off. Overall a mediocre experience.

    Our server David was excellent! He was very attentive, our water glasses were always filled up, wine topped up and he even remembered the years for our anniversary and suprised us with an anniversary dessert! Compliments to the chef as well for the fresh and delicious seafood tower and the show stopper tomahawk! Amazing experience as always! Thanks for making our special day even more special.

    Oyster were delicious. Selection available from east and west coast. Waiter made an excellent recommendation based on our preference. Main was also delicious and the desserts were too difficult to choose from. Had the chocolate and bonbons. Wonderful! The service was very attentive but not overbearing. Made our anniversary special.

    Food is great, and the service was nice! We had a great experience. I like that the flavours are all well-balanced, usually with a slight touch of sourness to make them refreshing and tasty. The lamb is very tender. Desserts are great! I especially like the salted sesame bar.

    We were a group of four adults. There were several empty tables that could have us in the restaurant We were seated in the back in a separate room from the main dining area next to a large family with loud, young children. The staff seemed to think the noisy isolated table was not a real issue when I requested a change. They waited until the family left and then asked if we wanted to move. We didn’t seem to be terribly important to them.

    First off, the food was incredible; the sablefish just melted in my mouth. The service deserves significant mention. Each member that we interacted with wished my sister a Happy Birthday, and with no request made our server gave her special treatment all night. The ambiance was welcoming and social, yet we could have easy conversation throughout our meal. I would really recommend The Boulevard Kitchen to anyone looking for a special occasion.

    This was my first visit, and it left me pleasantly surprised. The menu is creative, the food was perfectly prepared, and the service was excellent. The seating is comfortable, and the decor, while not terribly interesting, is suitably elegant. My only complaint is that the room is a bit echo-y, and I had a little difficulty hearing my companion due to noise from other tables. Maybe next time a booth would give us more privacy, but I will definitely return.

    Overall, it was a positive experience. Most of the dinner selections were good. Seafood platter was the bright spot of the night, but the striploin was definitely overcooked. More like a medium rather than medium rare. Sunchoke was nice with different flavors and textures. Ambiance wise, a bit stuffy. Perhaps just not the right atmosphere for me? Service was professional and on the spot, but not genuine! Everything the server said is like reading from a textbook! Won't be back awhile!

    It's a very good restaurant. The food is top notch and the service excellent. While the dining room is very spacious, the noise level was on the loud side. Still, the food is as good as advertised, even if it's pricey.

    Seafood tower was nice. Entrees poor. Halibut was old, way overcooked or both. Saucing was okay but not particularly interesting. Pasta was gummy. Service was strong and they tried to compensate for the food but really a competent kitchen should simply not put out that kind of food.
