Recently out in California for the Holidays. After a visit to Alcatraz had a clam chowder bowl at Boudins. Chowder was great and outstanding sour dough bread

The clam chowder was so yummy. The place was packed but we were able to secure our table. The price is just right for the quantity of the food.

My husband and i spent $30 for an inedible breakfast. Toast too cold to melt the butter, egg tasted like an egg substitute or were watered down and potatoes were cold. We were the first people in line and waited for our breakfast to be cooked??? Now to top this off when we finished breakfast and asked where the restroom was we were shown the back door that led to a parking lot with a filthy public restroom across the parking lot. The door had no way for us to get back in the restaurant. This was our second visit today San Francisco and our last. Don’t waste your travel budget on this place.

The bakery itself is worth a visit but the restaurant is really good. Food quality was excellent and our server was outstanding. Very good value and could have been easily persuaded to let lunch roll into dinner had we not other things we had to do. Great choice of wines.

We had the classic Boudins Chowder in sour dough bread. OMG. An amazing carb fest :) plus the chowder. Loved it.

Highly recommended and easy to find NOT using google maps. Head for the waterfront and you will see it very easily.

We did not have a reservation for lunch but we can imagine that for dinner a reservation is essential

An interesting observation. Boudins was busy. We could see a lot of other places around that were open that were very quiet by comparison. That tells its own story :)

Thanks to the team for being very helpful much appreciated from 2 Brits abroad.
