Seafood
Boulevard Seafood Company sources its seafood directly from the Fulton Fish Market in NY as well as other local purveyors. A retail seafood room displays these fresh catches of the day, available for purchase 7 days a week.


An open kitchen is the focal point of the 70-seat restaurant, which features a 6-seat counter for our Chef Table experience. To the rear is our casually appointed dining room, where we offer an array of daily dinner blackboard specials featuring the freshest seafood in the area.


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?

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),

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!

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😀

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.

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

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!

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.
