The food is absolutely amazing i had the Bruschetta to start and the Scallops and Chorizo pasta for my mains. My boyfriend had the Duck Liver Pate to start and the Pork Belly for his mains. He said my main was the best he never had ha ha. Only fault is the place is a little too packed so if you are looking for a table try get one along the walls or window, we were in the middle of the floor and the waiter did bang off my boyfriend when he was taking a drink and it spilt on him and then another time a waiter banged a plate of food he was carrying to another table off a bottle on ours and it was nearly knocked over. We also actually got chatting with the couple beside us as we were that close we could hear each other's conversations. But it is obviously just a testament to how popular this little spot is.

Party of 4, I had a voucher to use. I would normally recommend any night here but unfortunately this Saturday night, there was a hen party in for a meal. They were so loud you could not hear yourself speak, not Fintan & staff's fault. The service and food were excellent as usual. A very popular restaurant.

Love Boulevard Cafe. I've been many times and have never had a bad meal. The waiters are lovely and the atmosphere is great. I look forward to my next visit. Id totally recommend Boulevard Cafe.

After waiting nearly 20minutes to get an order taken the food took an additional 45minutes to appear on the table. One order was wrong and had to wait again for the correct order to come out. After one order being wrong the other two dishes looked as if they'd been reheated. Nobody approached us to apologise for the mix up and long wait. Awful customer service and food.

Went in last Saturday for dinner with my significant other. My second time dining at Boulevard and as expected, food was delish and staff couldn't have been nicer. We both had seafood dishes for main and they were perfectly cooked. Boulevard is definitely one of my favourite places to eat in Dublin.

Party of 7 here to celebrate an event. One of our party is coeliac but this caused no issue at all. Staff are very attentive and despite being a Thursday night and the restaurant very busy, there was no delay in the service. Two other parties were celebrating birthdays and the staff played special music and made a great atmosphere even better. Congrats to Fintan and the staff for a great night. The only downside is that sitting near the door can be quite chilly.

I was a bit disappointed with the steak, in fact I left most of it, or I'd have been chewing for the whole night, they did comment and I did tell they why but they didn't even offer to take off the €5 supplement. The lemon tart didn't taste all that fresh, again disappointing. Despite this I had a great night but this could have been more to do with the company. Would I go again hmmmmmm not entirely sure.

Arrived for an early meal on Tuesday evening. Nice laid back atmosphere and friendly service. Starter and main came at just the right speed. As a starter, I had duck salad, which was delicious. Plenty of duck and gorgeous dressing. My friend had broccoli and baby spinach soup, with brown bread, which he said was superb. For our mains, we both had salmon. As I don't like crushed potato, I had home cut fries, which were yummy, as they were cooked with jackets on, which I love. My friend said that his crushed potato was to die for. Veg was mange tout and roasted tomato. Portions are a good size, so we had to take a break for a while before deciding on a dessert. I had chocolate fudge cake and my friend had an apple crumble with a coffee.. I was totally stuffed. We also had a bottle of wine. We both agreed this was the best meal we had in a while. Great value for €60 on a Menupages voucher. I would definitely return.

I purchased a deal for 3 course meal for 2 people with bottle of wine for 60euro. This is not great value, the 3 course meal would only cost €19.95 each if we had just walked in off the street. The wine was ok. The food was ok but has been better on past visits. Staff are attentive and friendly.

I booked a table for 4 for lunch today for a friends birthday. I picked it because it says on the website there are plenty of options for coeliacs which one if the party is. We all had different meals and everyone was pleased. I had the risotto and it was lovely, lots of chopped veg and beautiful flavours. One of the nicest I've had. Others has Cajun chicken salad, beef and another chicken dish all good. The only disappointment came when we went to order desserts, the waiter came with a plate of sample desserts and put it down beside the coeliac and said you look away I'm afraid you can't eat any of them. Now I don't blame him for joking about it but coeliacs lose their sense of humour in situations like that and she asked have you something else gluten free- he said no just ice cream, the owner didn't make anything today. That's what accompanies dessert not the main thing in my opinion. We were all disappointed and to be honest I won't go back, don't say you cater for people with allergies and then decide not to bother, at least be honest and say you only have main courses suitable. By the way she is diagnosed and not someone on a fad diet. Sorry Boulevard, you let me down, we won't be back

We had a lovely meal here on Wednesday evening. The restaurant was quiet but the food and service was excellent. The early bird menu is great value at €20 for two courses when you take into account the quality of the food served.

Party of 4.Celebrating a special birthday. The food was great,the staff are wonderful & the location is perfect for a meal as you do not feel you are right in the city centre although it is a short walk from the bus stop on Dame Street. Fintan & the team run a great restaurant.

We celebrated my Hen's party last Saturday night and we had 24 people. We were really well looked after by all the staff and the food was really lovely. The service was excellent and everyones dinner arrived at the same time which must be a nightmare for the kitchen with 24 people. At the end of the night we were all up dancing and they had a lovely cocktail for the hen. I would definitely recommend for atmosphere,service, food and value. A Great Night

We ate here on a voucher. It wasn't our first time there and we were expecting a good night from the previous time. The food was lovely and the best part was the close tables and buzzing atmosphere. We would really recommend this place to others what ever the occasion but especially for couples or small groups and we would return but maybe we would choose the pasta and pizza dishes as a change. It was well finished with a nice desert too.
