BLVD is a modern American restaurant located in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood that draws inspiration from Hollywood’s Sunset Blvd circa 1950: the golden era’s most iconic strip of dining and entertainment establishments. BLVD combines the glamour, sophistication, and decadence that defined Hollywood in the 1950s with contemporary cuisine, craft cocktails, and modern music, creating an exciting dichotomy between restaurants and personas of the past and present.

We will not be back. We arrived at 9:45 for our reservations, waited 15 min for the valet. We were told to have a seat at the bar and they would seat us in a minute...30 min later...we are still waiting at the bar. Finally, at 10:35pm, my husband walks to the hostess stand and finds out that she forgot about us.
Well, the kitchen closes in 25 min, so we had to rush through ordering.
Twice we had management come to our table to apologize and say they had special appetizers coming out to the table to make good on their gaffe.
We waited for the appetizers for over 15 minutes, and nothing came out, so we preceded with our order. (As the kitchen was closing in 10 min.)
We ordered a salad, a toast, and two entrees.
They did comp our salad and toast, but I would have rather paid for them and had a decent experience.
We won't be back.

Everything was fantastic! Service, food, drinks. The Monday night specials are great, too. It is a very glamorous/beautiful space but very dark so be ready for that. It was a little tough to go in at 5 for happy hour while it was sunny out but everything we experienced inside made up for it. My whole group said we would return; maybe later at night, for a special occasion/date night or rainy evening.

Overall, I and the rest of my party were pretty disappointed in our Mother’s Day brunch experience. First, the restaurant was far too dark for brunch. Second, the service was very slow and it was rare that we were checked on throughout our meal. The prix fix menu sounded promising but the portions were far too small considering the price. Beautiful bathrooms though.

Very nice restaurant. A little dark but it definitely helped set the mood. Service was amazing. Our server was a huge help in recommending food and drinks. She nailed it. The food was to die for I literally thought every meal was the best thing I had tasted. The dumplings and the chicken were the greatest thing I've ever tasted. It was my girlfriends birthday and they treated us like royalty. Highly recommend this place.

Our server only came to our table if we flagged her down. The escargot and hamachi starters did not taste fresh. I ordered the bone in lamb chop medium and it was served well done with several parts of the chop to dry to eat from being over cooked. On the positive, it was nice ambiance and good drinks. Overall, poor value for spending over $200

Our server was very nice and attentive, however the food was just average. Wine sommelier was very knowledgeable and friendly. Food: Scallops were good, lamb chops good Caesar salad good. But just good...not $300 good. Blueberry cheesecake was a mess, JFK to LAX cocktail was more like dessert than a drink.

Was really hoping to be wowed.

BLVD was amazing! The staff took unbelievable care of us. We were seated at the best table in the house (in my opinion). The service was amazing. Might have been the best service I’ve ever had at a restaurant thus far. And the food was outstanding. Well done BLVD! Looking forward to coming back soon.

Great ambiance and main dining area at BLVD. My wife and I went on a Thursday night which was a bit slower so it felt very intimate and we had fantastic service. We sat and had a drink at the bar before dinner and the bartender/hostess were not pushing us to our table. It was very relaxing and unique experience. Can't wait to come back!

The place looks great! Very classy and appealing. The service was great as well! We had to wait a while for a table (even though we had reservations), and the staff offered us an appetizer in appreciation for our inconvenience.

We were not at all impressed with the food selection and quite disappointed with the price points. We ordered the oyster appetizer, and for $18 we got these 6 oysters the size of a quarter?! I mean really?! For $3 apiece BLVD could have done MUCH better... $21 for two little octopus legs?! C’mon! $32 for a piece of salmon with a handful of dumplings?

Don’t get me wrong, I realize there is a premium to downtown dining, and I am willing to pay but please at least make it worth it for me... or at least pretend to? I am tired of many of these newer restaurants charging ‘ripoff’ prices just because they can... and based on novelty the sheeple go and pay stupid prices... ok rant over.

Overall very classy and tasteful decor. Great service and staff professionalism. Dining selections were lacking more variety, and with the price points on this menu - it is just NOT WORTH IT...

This is a very chic restaurant with great food and ambiance. My girlfriend and I had a great time here and will return very soon. I had the mussels, she had the scallops, we shared some cauliflower and escargot. I don't have any complaints really, my only critique is that our cocktails tasted a bit watered down for the price. Will will be back very soon.

BLVD is well worth the trip. The food is excellent and the service is top-notch. From the diverse menu to the excellent drinks served, this experience was tremendous. The outside of the building is nothing like the beauty that you find inside. And the place is massive with two large bars and a lot of seating. This is an elegant experience with a price to match. Your meal will be expensive and the drinks from the bar will only add to that. The serving sizes are great, so don't over-order like we did.

I had a very nice time. I celebrated my anniversary with my husband and as soon as we were seated we received a glass of champagne to kick off the celebration. Every staff member that passed our table wished us a happy celebration and was very attentive the entire night!!!I would definitely patronize this establishment again.Thanks for a wonderful night:)
