Fun & Original
This game was fun and original.
Great graphics, very playable with good replay. Does require thought and strategy but at a relaxing pace. A new take on a food service game.
You get to hire staff and train them, you get to purchase equipment and upgrade it. You have a choice of dishes to learn and get to layout and decorate each restaurant.
Really enjoyed it!

just not up to par
Allows you to design a great looking restaurant. Variety of tools offered, gives endless possibilities. Too bad, you can't get into the actual serving and time management part of it. Almost feels as if you are just an on-looker, making game play not as exciting as it could be.

A "dash" game that doesn't force you to micromanage.
This is a great beginners' "dash" style game. You're the manager of a restaurant (the game takes you through several restaurants with varying themes). You hire and train staff, learn recipes and procure the ingredients for them, arrange tables and decorations for guests to enjoy, and equip your kitchen. Every day, you get advance notice of what sorts of ingredients your day's guests will want; you arrange recipes to meet as many of those ingredient preferences as possible. Each restaurant theme gets different dishes; a "family" restaurant gets the hamburgers and shrimp cocktail, while the "Italian" one gets lasagna.
But unlike other "dash" games, you're not forced to sit there and cook every single dish. Once you buy the ingredients for dishes once, you're done for the whole level. Discovering recipes are mini-games in themselves; people who already know how to cook will be at the advantage here since ingredients are pretty much what they are in real life. Nor must you direct each waiter and chef as they go about their duties. Once you've bought your furniture and decorations, once you've trained your staff, once you've decided what your menu is for the day, you set it up to go and then sit back and watch. All you do during the actual day is decide where to seat the customers who come into the restaurant.
As you advance through training and building up your restaurant, you get more "stars," which unlock more objects. The better trained your staff, the happier guests will be and the faster they'll be served and out the door to clear up table space--and the more money they tip. It's all very neatly interconnected.
If you like "dash" games but don't care for the micro-management aspects of them, or if you've never played a "dash" game and want to try one, you may like this game.

Fun and Different Game
I absolutely love time management games and especially loving being able to find one that is original. Your goal in this game is to open and build restaurants up.
The game is easy to learn and each restaurant offers different challenges to accomplish. I have found myself playing this game over and over again for hours at at time.
If you are looking for something different and fun, this is definitely the game for you!

What a fantastic restaurant simulation game. Very challenging and realistic. Different types of ethnic restaurants are available. One of my favorite games. Combines business management and cooking. Amazing programming.

I really enjoyed this game. A little different from some of the other restaurant games. Game play was pretty easy and had some creative designing of the different places.

i enjoy this game over and over
i like Bistro Boulevard a lot. i play it to completion, then leave it for a few months, then i start all over again and enjoy it as much as before. i just wish some sequels would be produced, or other games that are more similar to Bistro Boulevard than what's already available.
