Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Racism is the menu I received from this place! Note : Approached the door and asked one of the staff if there was any available tables! The room was full of available tables! Staff individual replied in a rude and racist manner that "we are...full booked for today" and pointed me the tray in direction to my eyes in a volunteer way to exercise rude behavior! It was the first time and last for sure in that place as I don't tolerate racism and certainly not xenophobic behaviors from nobody! Get some good staff training as this is the reason why turists avoid Helsinki! Not the first time in this city that racism was the first thing to merge into poor communication from local restaurants!

Entering this testaurant we were greeted with open heart. This never left us, to say that the restaurant was fantasic is an understatement. You choose your food from a variety of inspired choices, don’t be fooled by the name of the courses, nothing is as...expected. We were guided by the exceptional Hanna, trust her, we did and the lady has excellent taste and great knowledge of her craft. The only negative thing to say about our visit is that it’s to far from Oslo. Respect🇫🇮🕺🏼🕺🏼😘More

I have eaten one of the most memorable (in a good way) meals in Boulevard Social a long time ago, and I was looking forward receiving a similar experience again. Unfortunately, we were unlucky this time. Sharing 8 dishes, one of them was spectacular, 5...were right above average and 2 very poorly executed. I like the concept, but with this price you'd expect more spectaculars and zero disappointments. Service was good in terms of being friendly and attentive, but we felt rushed throughout our experience. Having sat on the table for less than 45 minutes, we had already been served 5 dishes. Our conversations were cut all the time, and the feeling of being hurried quite simply made it feel like the goal is to feed us as fast as possible.More

Service was mixed. The bartender was not particularly friendly but our server was very pleasant. The beef bun was delightful, the wine list was wonderful, but the majority of the food was bland and nondescript. Would recommend for some snacks and a cocktail but not...for a full meal. Atmosphere was lovely.More

Nice looking restaurant located downtown with friendly service. First time eating there so we tried the tasting menu. In overall can’t say it was bad, still the general impression remains as failed soufflé : each of the first 4th dishes was better than the previous...one, which got expectation higher and higher living by the restaurant reputation, but falling flat by the last two dishes, normal, unextraordinary and rather small for main dishes . (Honey belly and white fish). Desserts were okay. All in all , it’s good restaurant, perhaps a bit pricy considering the overall experience . The other restaurants of the same chain are better from my opinion.More

Amazing dinner and yummy cocktails in the heart of Helsinki! We had a five course dinner and it ended up being one of my favourite meals that I’ve had.

We arrived before the folks came in - and it was wonderful. The lights, the mirrows, the wodden tables - and the staff! We shared a menu with pairing wine. Fabulous and tasteful and they indeed are able to create good tasting food for customers...with allergie.More

Waiter recommended 2 first courses each and 3 main courses to share. Out of these only two courses was whole ingredients and the rest was mixed mash or stew like all of which served on, in or with bread. Three courses tasted excellently. My taste...buds became a bit numb during the servings so I don’t want to state anything absolute about the gourmet standard. The size of servings vary a lot and it felt a bit like work to get the picture and needing to ask the waiter about so much. Friendly staff and good athmosphere.More

The venue is very nice and the staff is super laid back and professional. We had the Social Tasting Menu with the sommelier wine pairing. Food was tasty and put out beautifully and the wines were excellent and went perfectly with the dishes.

Had a great dinner here. Tapas/Tasting style menu with a North African influence. Crispy zatar shrimp and harissa lamb were exceptional. Niece wine list, including several of my favorites from Piedmont. Staff very good and knowledgeable! Would definitely return.

Celebrated my sons and husbands birthday in Boulevard Social, the food again was really tasty and spicy just the way we like it. The others had the social tasting menu and I had the vegetarian version. Both were great. Again, I can not give five...stars, because the wines are overpriced and it ruins the whole experience a bit.More

Spent + 2,5hrs here enjoying the tasting menu with recommended drinks menu. On Fri evening the place was fully booked. Even though the crowds the service was fast and we didn't have to wait for nxt portions to arrive. We opted for social tasting menu...without meat instead of the veggie version. Our favourite ebded up veing the salmon tartar, it was sooo good! Also loved the scallops and aubergine skewer.More
