“Good Food... Slow Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014 via mobile

A great tasting restaurant with lots of choices and a great variety to choose from. The only problem was that our waitress was way too slow. It took a party of seven three hours to eat a meal. She also took several minutes to get refills and took even longer for the alcohol. Besides at that the food is amazing!

“Tasty and very SF”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

A little expensive but fun for what it is. Gives you a very San Francisco feel inside the restaurant. Especially nice to get a yummy bread bowl with soup on a cold rainy SF day.

“If you like bread with a really, really tough crust....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Their prices are out of the roof, the bread is not bad, but the crust is so tough you need serious knife to open the loaf. There are better places to spend your money unless you are just looking for a novelty food item.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

Delicious bread! Its not a restuarant where you sit down and have your order taken (need to order and then you find your own seats). Purchased clam chowder which was great.

“Great "Extra Sour" Sourdough Bread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

I was amazed at the variety of bread they have here. I figured we'd stop in an pick up some sourdough bread to take home. Was told at the Ferry Building that Boudin has the extra sour "traditional" SFO sourdough bread that people associate with SFO. Purchased a Garlic Cheese "Volcano" Sourdough. Fantastic!
