Not your typical tm/strategy game
Instead of trying to get customers served, you are in charge of giving the customer the best possible service. You pick the recipes, kitchen equiptment, the chef training, the wait staff traing and decor with the goal of turning a delapidated food court into a five star dining district. Fantastic way to waste a rainy day!

I did not like the idea of not preparing the food myself. When time was up the waiter moved very quickly just to finish up. Very bad game.

Dull and Slow Paced
Graphics were very poor and the pace was extremely slow. Plus the storyline didn't make much sense. I don't recommend this game.

I bought this game, but I'm upset i did.
The audio is dreadful and repetitive, I was so sick of it after playing for a few hours I muted the game and put on my headset.
The graphics are an okay to bad on my scale.
What makes this game fun is figuring out what everyone wants on any particular level, and making sure you have the recipes, staff, tables, and other variables to help eventually achieve a 5 star rating.
This is a really long game, it can take you more than an hour just to get one star in your first restaurant!
There's also AFAIK no leader score/awards score or who did the best score for people playing, which IMHO makes this time management a waste of time (pun intended). I wish I would have not purchased this game.

I really enjoyed Bistro Blvd. I wish it was more challenging and that you could open up more restaurants.

Every time I play and replay this game I get completely absorbed in the game. Unlike other restaurant type time management games where you end up at this frenetic pace trying to keep up with orders this game allows you to seat the people and then have your waiters do the serving and the chefs do the cooking. I love this game I wish they would come out with a Bistro Boulevard 2.
I've never liked the Dash games because they are too frenetic and I find I cannot keep up with the demands. This is perfect. I get to figure out what to buy and how many, choose which recipes I need to learn and upgrade my staff.
I whole heartedly recommend this game!

The game was typical of any time management game and yet enjoyable and new.

Not challenging, but certainly enjoyably fun
I loved how you get to arrange, train and decorate the restaurants any way you want. I also like the manner of "discovering" dishes and the logic game element to making your customers happy. The Boulevard games are so unique - I hope they come out with more!
