ENJOYABLE – My husband and I have been going to Boulevard Cafe since it open.The ravoli's on the Sunday special has wonderful meaty sauce (not watery). Try the prawns appetizer. I always suggest the lamb with roasted potatoes and feta, best on the menu. One Friday I had a taco shell with a chilean see bass, melted in your mouth. Never ate brussel sprouts until now.Try these those who fear this vegetable. You will learn to LOVE brussel sprouts. Noise, I can't complain. Our hobby is going restuarants and trust me the noise level here is not that bad as people say and they did do changes to minimize the noise.My 92 year old mother brings all her friends there and she is picky so it must be good. The owners and staff will always check with you, so if you have a problem tell them they would like to know. ENJOY!
Can you say bleh? – I dont know why this place was packed when I went because the food certainly isnt the explanation. My Asian prawn pasta was basically spaghetti noodles drenched in soy sauce with an occasional prawn, mushroom slice or spinach leaf and some sesame seeds sprinkled on top. It was way too salty. I had a taste of my friends dishes and those were equally dissatisfying. The meals may look good but after one taste youll realize you shouldve eaten elsewhere. The service is ok but the food is just bleh.
Turning my kitchen into a third bedroom – My wife and I can't get enough of the food, ambience and attention at the Boulevard Cafe. We are there so often since we discovered it we're thinking of shutting down our kitchen at home and turning it into a third bedroom. The choices are plentiful, the service is top notch, the staff and owners always willing to please. I especially like the fish and chips, meat loaf, pot roast, and fried chicken. My wife loves the Mediterranean pasta. The staff went overboard entertaining a small group of mine and I recommend that they add osso bucco as a special to the existing menu. There is nothing else like this in 10 miles.
Agree with previous reviewer: needs improvement – Been here twice now.. And the early bird daily specials seem to be a good value. The cobb salad was good, but dressing a bit unconventional. The turkey sandwich was highly disappointing... very light on the turkey.. mostly thick bread and mayo. The salads were average spring mix with carrots shaved on top. Although friendly, the service was spotty and we felt abandoned midway through the dinner. In short, there is considerable room for improvement with both food and service. Also, the menu is all over the place. Seems like each of the various owners wanted to go in a different direction. It's not really a cafe (despite it's name) yet not really an upscale restaurant either...
Dressed-up diner fare and sleek design lure city diners south. – The Scene
A former Lyon's, the space has been remade into a modernist glass house with clean lines, gold and beige tones, and art deco fixtures. Families, couples and the occasional San Franciscan jam large and small tables throughout the airy dining room, and a copper-sided, marble-topped counter runs along a gleaming exhibition kitchen. To the right is an almost-hidden entrance to the dimly lit lounge, where a tiled bar and high-top tables host after-work cocktailers.
Straightforward ingredients make for un-fussy comfort food. Starters are nicely plated, with balsamic reduction artfully drizzled over iceberg wedges covered in blue cheese and bacon. Perfectly pan-seared salmon is served with a rich, buttery cauliflower orzo, but T-bone steak could use a little seasoning. Your standard mac and cheese is amped up with asiago, Parmesan and sharp Vermont cheddar. Expect standard cocktails and a reasonably priced, California-heavy wine list.
Is this really in Daly City? – In Daly City you're normally caught in the dilemma of going to the City or going to Burlingame. This place is right in the middle - just right. Attentive service needs improvement but there is a lot to like here. Stick with the daily specials. Really good fried chicken (on Mondays). Basics like steak and spaghetti & meatballs still need some fine tuning and flavor. They have a full bar and cocktail lounge too. It's tasteful and tastey without the suburban bourgeois tackiness. Just like I said - just right.
Great new restaurant concept – Unique, new larger restaurant and bar (a completely remodeled Lyons) run by an extended family of restaurant pros that are always present working. Interesting combination of haut cuisine, nouvelle good eatin, and reprised American diner while always employing really good ingredients but at very reasonable prices. The menu is brilliant, with something for everyone. Service is usually very attentive and the management is extremely considerate; the interior is very fun. The bar is also attractive and quieter than the dining rooms. The owners continue to fine-tune their ideas, too.
My new favorite restaurant... – In May 2005, Lyon's Restaurant was transformed into a diner's delight! Remodeled inside and out, it is a wonderful, comforable place to meet and eat.
Whomever did the hiring, did an amazing job. The workers, from busboy to servers to the hostess, chefs and owners...everyone is friendly and efficient. A cozy bar sits to the right. You can eat in there, with or without a drink. A great, safe place, for a women's get together!
The food covers every angle, from basic to very tasty and very satisfying. You will not go away wanting more, and their desserts will make you smile!
Prices are average, and there is a children's menu. Parking lot has blue zones and a ramp, for accessiblity. The bathrooms are always clean.
This is now where I invite everyone, to join me, for a good meal and a great experience.
Ya gotta eat, why not here!?
WHAT A WONDERFUL RESTAURANT – I HAVE BEEN IN SEVERAL TIMES SINCE THEY OPENED......EARLY ON, THE SERVICE WAS A BIT SLOW....BUT HEY....THEY HAD JUST OPENED....BUT THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. I WAS JUST IN FOR DINNER LAST WEEK, .... THE FOOD AND THE SERVICE WAS AWESOME.......EVERY ONE IS SO FRIENDLY. A WONDERFUL PLACE TO HAVE A GREAT MEAL WITH FRIENDLY SERVERS AND EXCELLENT SERVICE.........AND REASONABLE PRICES TO BOOT.....
Finally somewhere to go – What a treat someone has finally brought a little class to Daly city.Been in twice and had a fabulous time. The specials are fine dining quality in a non-pretentios enviorment, and the rest of the menu is almost taylor made for the area , a little bit for every body. I found my new spot for great food outside of Sanfran.
