Unlike other reviewers' experience, the service we received was exemplary - friendly, attentive and fast. Food showed imagination, especially the crab croquettes with a spicy sauce surround them. Ingredient quality was beyond reproach and everything was cooked to the degree as ordered them, no overcooking here at all. Definitely going back there again this year.
Food is awesome. Service is appalling. They forgot our entrees twice! After waiting 30 min for them we asked politely about them and our server said, "didn't you get them? oh they're coming soon then". 15 more minutes pass.... we ask again and our server replies "Oh I thought I gave them to you already?" No apology or anything of the sort. Do they have take-out?
Really great food. Awful Service: slow and rude. But I keep going back for more abuse. The soups alone are worth being snubbed and ignored.
As usual the Boulevard had wonderful subtle Many flavoured fresh and healthy Peruvian food with a warm and attentive environment
After being seated and ready to order we were informed their credit card machine was not working. Overhead the same story elaborated to a larger table that questioned it in more detail. Hopefully this is an honest issue. If it recurs on our next visit we will comment in greater detail and request that any credit card signage or marketing of accepting credit cards be removed by the owner.
Food was delicious. POS machine was broken so had to go to laundromat across the street. Booth upholstery a bit worn out, Patio would be great in summer.
This used to be a wonderful, interesting and popular restaurant with great food, service and atmosphere. Sadly, this is no longer the case. The food was average and we were not told of their lack of Internet until we were leaving and hoping to pay the bill with a credit card. We were told that there was an ATM machine not too far across the street! Not acceptable. If they only accept cash this should be information that you are given before you have your meal. Disappointing.
Friendly environment and fresh delicious dinner
my only disappointment was that the eggs were supposed to have been served on corn bread but came on a regular english muffin instead. Not a huge deal though, everything was fresh and delicious and we will definitely be back more often.
Very pleasant comfortable atmosphere. Great food. Lovely people.
We love Boulevard Cafe. Have been dining here for more than 30 years. Food and atmosphere are so inviting.
Nice old standard, but getting shabby and not looking clean, especially in the back. The food is as it always has been, comfort food, nothing really special but good value.
After receiving 2 confirmations of my reservation from you, when we got to the restaurant it was closed.
Food was top notch and the staff were lovely and friendly however the food took a really long time and also they forgot to bring two cheesecakes we ordered. Also their machine stopped working so we had to walk to an ATM n come back to pay. Also the bathrooms were pretty run down but not dirty or smelly. I'd go again:)
Very disappointed. This was one of my favourite restaurants in the past but I was very disappointed with my meal. The chicken was dry and coarse and the creole salad was not good at all. We were told to only pay cash as their machine was broken. This has been going on since June! The restaurant was very quiet only 2 other couples. I will not be going back there again.
Worst dining experience ever! We were visiting from NYC, and the restaurant's credit/debit card machine didn't work, so they forced us to go a get cash 15 min away to pay for our meal. No apologies whatsoever for the inconvenience and no discount on anything for all the trouble! Also, the owners/servers were drunk, not friendly at all, not paying attention to customers, and were drinking cocktails on the job! They advertised a certain fish and wine that they in the end didn't have (for the wine alternative they of course made us choose the most expensive one since it was the only one left on the menu!). They listed the trout as fish of the day but said that because the chef didn't like the look of the trouts this morning, they didn't end up serving them! This place was just a pure farce! Never, ever again!!
Fabulous, relaxing patio. Food was delicious. Server was charming & knowledgable. Would highly recommend this hidden gem!
Friday Evening we were the only people there . Poor ambience.. Two months since my last visit and they still would not accept CREDIT CARDS. CASH ONLY.... no wonder there was none there ! I had filet which was tough. The trout was good. Pricey.. Very disappointing
A fantastic experience! We'll be back!
The Boulevard has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years. The patio is delightful and the food is excellent. This is the second visit in a month, however, where the owner indicated that the Internet is not working and I would have to pay cash. It is understandable if this happens for one evening, but should be dealt with very quickly. I would not go back there again until this is rectified.
We were the only people at the restaurant, but had to chase a wait person for our drink order and later for our food order. The prices reflect an upscale restaurant, but the food and service do not warrant the prices. The best part of the meal were the desserts which were excellent. We had been to this restaurant years ago and it was excellent then, but the service and food have gone downhill. Too bad.
food is consistently good and the service was wonderful!
I would give this restaurant a zero in terms of customer service and in fact food, but the website doesn't allow for this rating. We arrived to find an empty and closed restaurant; apparently closed for the weekend. Does this website not allow for a restaurant to notify customers that the resautant is closed? Or is this more a problem with a restuarant that discourages customers to make reservations online. Not very classy! Beware, phone in your reservation, to make sure they are open.
We always dine well at he Boulevard and especially enjoy the summer patio.
The food is always consistently good and tasty and the service is always accomodating. Unfortunately, the debit and credit card machine were down, so we needed to use cash. Few people were there on a Thursday evening, so the atmosphere was somewhat dull
We had the Chicken Quesadilla - it was divine!! Perfectly spiced and prepared.
The service was very poor. The server forgot part of the order, only refilled water once we had finish our meal. We were told the system was down, and that only cash was accepted after we had order. They do not split bills for more than 5 people.
Waiter showed up to work ~1 hour late so, though arriving 30 minutes after the restaurant opened, we had to wait to order.
I had not been to The Boulevard in a number of years. I was disappointed that they did not have the Portuguese cornbread (many people come just for that bread!). Their beer and wine selection is not as extensive as it used to be and my dining partner's burger was not cooked and the replacement didn't arrive until I was finished my meal. The server was pleasant but overworked. You cannot contact the restaurant by telephone. Overall, just an okay experience.
our favourite restaurant!
Overpriced for what I had to eat!!!
Server was very pleasant. Grilled chicken salad with steamed vegetables the best entrée our group had Areas for improvement: - Boulevard Café confirmed the reservation in advance but did not alert us ahead of time that the debit/credit machine was not working. I was advised only when our whole family had been seated that it was cash only or I had to walk to an ATM. We only ordered enough to be paid with cash on hand. - Cushions on benches would have been nice - Garden salad did not impress (small portion, nothing but some grated beets on top; dressing did not taste homemade)
All excellent except I had to walk in the rain to find an AMT as their credit card machine was not working and they could only accept cash!
If you are looking for healthy, yet not boring options, The Boulevard Cafe has got it all: - Picky eaters will fall for Fettucine Con Mantequilla ($8) - fresh pasta with butter and parmesan. - Grilled Cheese ($6.95) gets an upgrade thanks to three-grain bread and a side salad. - And chicken is so much more fun on a skewer so opt for Anticuchos de Pollo ($10.95) with either fries or rice. - For veggie lovers, Palitos de Verduras ($5.95) features carrot, cucumber and celery sticks served with a sour cream dip. Who says eating healthy has to be boring?View this Smart List
Annex area locals fill up this charming Harbord Street bistro year-round, especially during the summer months when you’ll find crowds of diners enjoying an al fresco evening on the leafy side patio. Surrounded by fragrant and colourful hanging flower baskets, the patio is the perfect spot to sip on a refreshing Pisco Sour; the recipe here sticks to the tried-and-true mix of pisco, lime juice and egg white. The café’s Peruvian menu delivers a unique fusion of Incan, Spanish and African flavours. Try the house specialty Parihuela: a spicy seafood stew with monkfish, clams, mussels, tomatoes, cilantro and wine.View this Smart List
