Boulevard Seafood Company

Start with a fun selection from our fresh oyster raw bar! We are a BYOB so feel free to also bring your favorite beer and wine while letting our well-trained staff manage the rest!

It’s was very chilly outside and the propane heaters were empty making it very uncomfortable. However the food was excellent. I got the seafood risotto and practically moaned with delight with each bite.
Food & service were excellent.
We were inside at a table and we were not 6ft from the nearest tables, probably more like 4ft.
We asked for tap water and were told that it was not offered due to covid protocol. They gave us bottled water instead. It was not until we got the bill that we realized they charged us for the bottled waters.
Interesting that they didn’t seem to be following distancing protocols, but stated the protocols wouldn’t allow the use of tap water?
Food was very good, however, the kitchen was slow. Servers seemed to be overwhelmed.
A real Gem in downtown Somerville. Fresh seafood, perfectly prepared.
Great seafood. Fresh and delicious.
Ate at the chefs table. Started with oysters and salmon poke which my husband i had shared. Then I had the Arctic char special and my husband had fish tacos. One dish was better than the next. Highly recommend this restaurant . Each time we go, we always enjoy it (and my husband is a real foodie),
Worth the trip, but needs more servers. Appetizer menu is solid.
This place knows seafood. Nice patio seating in the rear of the restaurant. Was a bit overpriced, but was worth it.
Fish tacos were fresh and delicious! Salmon was also nicely prepared. Always enjoy Boulevard. Happy that they are open and comfortable eating here during Covid. Outdoor option or indoor with plenty of space. BYOB too
The food was wonderful. The prices more than reasonable and the service was attentive. What more could one ask?
Waiter did not give us a ice bucket for our wine. we have to ask. That should be standard at a BYOB.. when ask if you want water..... my opinion... then my wife appetizer came and I was waiting for mine.. would I recommend this place yes
First time dining here - so happy to have found this Seafood BYOB right on Main St in Somerville! Place is deceptively large & we were able to eat outside in the back. Our meals were great - I especially loved my salmon! Expect to be back often!
Food was fabulous! Everything was fresh and well prepared.
The raw oysters are always excellent. The menu is better than typical seafood choices and always delicious. Loved the swordfish and salmon. The scallop small plate was tender and tasty over a wonderful gremolata. Appreciate that it’s a BYOB
Always delicious at the boulevard. Coming here for years and never disappointed. Imaginative fish dishes with variety of ingredients. This visit had grilled swordfish over bed of broccoli rabe with olives and capers.
Omg, everything we ordered was simply delicious - grilled octopus & shrimp salad, fish tacos with crispy cod and the mussels Provençal! The only downside was no bread to soak up the tasty sauce from the mussels. Due to the pandemic, apparently the cafe has been closed for lunch so they are not ordering bread for sandwiches. So no bread with the mussels, a little disappointing but didn’t ruin our meal😀
The outdoor seating was on top of each other and took awhile for waitress to come to us. It was loud and not great ambiance
Had been looking forward to trying this place for a while, wish I had read the reviews a bit more beforehand so was not surprised. The restaurant was crowded but not packed on this Friday night. Brought a bottle of wine and not wanting to fill up on appetizers I skipped getting one so I could thoroughly enjoy my much anticipated meal. Had I known the wait for food (was told the kitchen was having some sort of a back up) would be over an hour I would have gotten something so the alcohol did not hit me like a ton of bricks. The manager was even going around talking to the tables about the long wait for food but that was well after the orders were taken. Perhaps comping the $9 dessert (rarely am I hungry enough for a dessert but believe me the entree was so small it was no problem to fit in dessert) would have been an appropriate gesture when you are ordering entrees in the $35 range-or even just a little bread basket! Also when asked if we wanted sparking or regular water, they should say “bottled” water since one would expect tap water and not expect to see the charge for the bottle of Poland Spring on the check! Overall the food was very good but at that price point there needs to be some fine tuning.
Food was unbelievably delicious! Amazing experience overall. Highly recommended!!
Excellent food, atmosphere was cozy, no complimentary water or bread.
Overwall and pleasant experience.
Good food but they took our favorite meal off the menu 😩 We were looking forward to the best fish and chips in NJ ! Also No bread !!!!! Asked for it and they said they didn’t have any ! Again 😩
Excellent food and service. First time dining here and will definitely return.
I love your restaurant. Plain and simple. Nice ambience and great food. Love the fact that it's BYOB. Servers are very helpful and friendly. A well-run restaurant.
Great good and service
The best shrimp and swordfish I have ever eaten. I will be telling everyone about this place!
Birthday dinner with friends - excellent food
Running closer to 75-80% occupancy. FAR above mandated COVID restrictions.
We are regulars here because the food , value and service are outstanding - consistently. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. By far one of Somerville’s gems, and BYOB makes it a place where we can enjoy good wine and good food more often!!
The food was amazing. Raw food was super fresh. We also ordered a bunch of small plates that were delicious!
Seafood was amazing and so fresh-clams and oysters from the raw bar delicious:) We chose outdoor and it was freezing-eat inside!
This is a great restaurant. However, they have to time the courses a little better. This is the third time we have been in the middle of eating our appetizers and they are putting the dinner on our table. Pretty annoying.
I ordered the risotto with seafood which said (shrimp,lobster, scallops). My mother ordered the same. Hers was missing lobster and mine had no shrimp. I asked them to take back and please fix the portions. They then removed half my lobster and put is on her plate! 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️ awful. Food was decent. I was just disappointed with thag
Food is absolutely delicious! Service is wonderful!
4 starts for the food! Service was lacking. Hoping for a better experience next time.
Great food and friendly service. Seats by the window are a little chilly but other than that perfect experience! I definitely recommend it and will visit again.
A last-minute reservation turned into an evening of gustatory delight as we dined on fresh seafood perfectly prepared before our eyes. Our courses were shuttled just a few feet from the open kitchen layout to our table. I had the pleasure of ordering hard cider Battered shrimp, strewn over a bed of sriracha aioli and garnished with a spaghetti-like helping of celeriac and green apple slaw. That heaven was then followed by fresh fettucine with baby arugula, toasted garlic, roasted tomato, and a chardonnay broth topped with succulent shrimp. We were offered several dessert choices to close out our evening and I settled on a smooth chocolate tart. The service was pleasant and quick, and the restaurant was clean with a soft soundtrack filling the gaps in between the diner conversations. As we were extremely pleased with our experience, we will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu!
The food was great. Paella was exceptional. Ambiance was good. The service was quick and they were attentive. Will definitely coming back here.
My wife and I had dinner for Valentines Day. We were warmly greeted, and our server was very helpful. The food was absolutely delicious - well worth the price.
This was our first time dining at Boulevard Seafood but won't be our last. The menu is somewhat limited but still offered multiple items that we'd order. The seafood was very fresh, and service was very good. The only unpleasant part of the experience was the awful parking lot behind the restaurant.
Great Experience. Food was excellent and service was great. Our party of four ordered many appetizers to share and we loved that they brought each one out one by one for us to enjoy. They replaced our plates with each appetizer which was a nice touch. Every dish was great but overall everyone loved the Lobster roll, grilled shrimp tacos and the shrimp appetizer. Remember this is a BYOB however no worries there is a wine store just across the street.
