Food was average. Our service lady was miserable. Way over priced. Very nice inside and being close to the water might justify the prices. Very good Sourdough bread.

Visited Fisherman's Wharf and made reservations a month ahead for Bistro Boudin. Arrived for dinner and the service was terrible. Waited half an hour to put in our drink order and were still waiting when we tried to place our order for dinner. They were out of two of the three items we tried to order. We ended up leaving...

Great experience with tons of options in the market area as well. The Breadbowl soups are always a hit and incredibly delicious.

We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here over a few different days. So good. Drinks are a little less than stellar, but it's not a cocktail lounge. The sourdough was so good I brought some home!

We came for a light lunch so we ordered the clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. It's been a few years, but we were not disappointed! Great service and views, too. A little pricey, but hey, we're on holiday!

Ate here twice while in city. Had clam chowder and crab bisque in sourdough bowls. If you like crab and sourdough bread, this is way to go. Had the crab cake appetizer, crab cake sandwich, crab and shrimp pizza, tacos, beef stew and paella-all of which were excellent. Every dish is served with Boudin's just baked sourdough bread which is... More

The bread bowl is amazing. To be sure, it's more bread than soup but that's okay - the bread is amazing. The tomato soup is pretty good too... The breakfast taco left something to be desired as the waffle was a little too steamed for my tastes. It was soggy half way through the meal. Overall, a great spot to... More

Wow, it was so exciting. My husband loved taking pictures of what they could create with sourdough bread. We enjoyed our sandwich and sitting outside to watch all the activities.
