Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I asked My son to take me here for a fathers day lunch . I had a great fish and chips meal with Fries and salad and he had a chicken wrap . Both were nice sized servings and everything tasted excellent . This was...the second time we have been to this place for lunch and I can see why it is busy. The food , service and atmosphere were all great. I am sure to be back .More

We’re on a 3 week road trip in California, Nevada arriving & leaving San Francisco. We were keen on having a hearty American style breakfast on our first morning. We arrived from Edinburgh via LHR on the Friday night, so we used trip advisor to...find a diner near to where we were staying in Daly City & this met our requirements and more There’s plenty of choice for breakfast & despite there not being any space left in the car park we were able to get a table for 5 & looked after really well, food was amazing & didn’t disappoint. We didn’t need to eat again until evening,, despite having a busy schedule Definitely go back & recommend to anyone looking at a hearty breakfastMore

COVID re-open they work so hard and the food is really good for an upscale dinner ( I mean NO criticism) like so many great Bay Area dinners. Mels, Joe’s, the Pancake house, and others. This is as good as any of them!

This place is super. I was only here once many years ago and don’t remember why I left with only so-so memories. This place is always packed whenever we drive by and often wondered about my vague recollection. We were looking for someplace different and...happened to be in the Boulevard neighborhood again and saw a full parking lot. We decided it was time to check it out again. Boulevard was great! The parking lot was quite full but found parking nearby with no issues. The place was pretty busy to me and our quoted 15 minute wait time was less than 10. The menu is pretty sizable and at 11:00 am (10:00 am before the time change) they were serving both breakfast and lunch menu items. My wife opted for breakfast, I went with lunch. We ordered the Rueben bites appetizer to start off with and then ordered the pancake, eggs, bacon (with hash-browns) breakfast and a Philly Cheese steak sandwich which came with multiple side options; I had a green salad. Our order came pretty quick and was very tasty! Our waitress and other wait-staff were all very attentive and friendly. Menu items were priced very affordably and the restrooms were very clean. With the Corona virus in all the news at the moment, they had a Purell dispenser (they say it doesn’t kill Corona virus) at the door and were taking obvious steps in trying to keep people healthy. We really enjoyed our brunch experience. We give this place 2 thumbs up and will go back again maybe for dinnerMore

I’ve been coming to the Boulevard for several years now. A few items on the menu, are a bit pricey, but the food is delicious, and the staff is friendly. Nice place to take the family for dinner.

This restaurant was easy to get too. Located right off Highway 280 in Daly City. We were seated right way as we arrived. Our waiter was THE BEST THAT WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED IN A VERY VERY LONG TIME- courteous, people friendly,and down right down...to earth. He came to our table several times even though he had other tables to attend to, making sure we were satisfied with our meal and anything else that we needed. The restaurant was busy but moving accordingly. The breakfast that we ordered was DELICIOUS- The Godfather and the pancake dishes, both cooked to perfection. The prices are very reasonable. We want to that thank the rest of your team for making us feel right at home. Every employee that we encountered had a smile on their faces and you actually could see that they enjoyed what they were doing. We will definitely be back!!More

At this location use to have team meetings. Place can house an army, and the menu covers all bases from breakfast to dinner. Good value for the buck Pig riblets had interesting sauce and plenty of them. Mac& Cheese has many versions. Good size dish,...but had a thin, melted cheese topping, bacon bits somewhere and peppers didn't make it hot.More

Great service, great view, great food. Plan to wait about 20 minutes to be seated for breakfast. The chicken fried steak was good, but the gravy was a bit salty.

Boulevard Cafe is an excellent choice for an after movie meal. I been here a couple of times in the past and appreciate how this restaurant is consistently clean, the staff welcoming, and the service timely and attentive -- no matter how busy they are....I was also pleasantly surprised by their early-bird options between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. daily. My selection was the blackened catfish with seasonal vegetables and rice pilaf. It came with a salad (or soup) and coffee (ice tea or soft drink) for $19.95. The portions were generous and the catfish was perfectly grilled. I recently had surgeryical and am limited on what I can eat and how it is prepared, so having several options was delightful. The waitstaff answered all of my questions and also checked in periodically with us. The meal was topped off with a shareable (huge) Belgian waffle dessert. Although I only had some, it was a good feeling to be able to satisfy my sweet tooth.More

Been driving past the boulevard cafe so many times seeing the busy parking lot, finally took the time to park and go in. Was well worth the stop for breakfast. The place was busy but seating was fast, the menus were ready and shortly after...sitting the coffee was on the table. The selection was very good and the waitress, Deborah, was ready with some recommendations. The cornbeef has with poached eggs was as good as she said it would be.More

My husband and I go regularly to Boulevard Cafe. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Pot Roast is excellant. The Cappelini Promodore is better that many italian restaurants. All the foods we tried at Boulevard Cafe have been excellant. We choose to eat in...the Bar Area as it is cozier and quiter than the main eatting area.More

We hadn't come here for over a year so because it was convenient, we stopped by. Upon arriving at the hosts podium we were ignored for about -8-10 minutes in spite of the fact the host saw us & we were the only ones there....Eventually, he made eye contact with us but without asking if we wanted a booth or table walked us over to a both without a greeting and just said "fallow me" in very terse tone. We informed him that we wanted a table. At that point he showed to a table that hadn't't yet been cleared, in spite of the fact that a nearby table was already set. All of this without a word & he just walked away. The table was then cleared & set up. A very nice server came & took our order which consisted of a Cesar salad & the Boulevard pasta which we decided to split as their portions are large. After quite a while the salad was served & it consisted of old Romain lettuce that was kind of bitter. It had a couple of anchovies filets on top between the 2 plates it had only 3 croutons & barely any dressing which very thin & it tasted almost rancid. Then the pasta came it was way undercooked. We tried to eat it because it was late & we were hungry. It was just way too spicy & was definitely quite undercooked. After a few bites we just gave up, paid & left. It was very disappointing & not worth any price.More

We were there for dinner on Tuesday evening. We had steak, blackened catfish and chili. They were all very good, and not expensive. This is a very good place for a causal family dinner.
