Diner Reviews
  • "Go to this restaurant regularly as it is conveniently close to Covent Garden, has a varied menu and always delivers a great meal with superb service."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Having asked to be seated at an open window when booking, I was impressed when we arrived to be seated at the large open window on the ground floor. Staff were friendly and attentive(but not too attentive). The three of us all enjoyed our meal which represented very good value for this part of London. In all a very enjoyable evening. Would go back without hesitation."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "The three course meal was good value for money and the house wine was very drinkable With a group of seven it was good to know that our table would be waiting. An evening enjoyed by all"
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "As always, food, service and ambience at Boulevard Brasserie were excellent. I arrived half an hour early for my table and they still seated me and let me wait for my friend who was then running another 15 mins late, so in all I sat for 45 minutes and the staff were more than happy to bring me drinks and then leave me in peace, which was wonderful in the cool restaurant on a really hot day! The set menu had a great choice and my steak frites was excellent value. We hadn't intended to have dessert, but the menu tempted us and I'm glad we did! The chocolate tart was superb! Thanks very much!"

  • "We've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. 50% off food offer is great and makes it very affordable, especially as it's so centrally located in a tourist area. Recommend the seafood linguine - fabulous!!"
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "Lovely pre theatre menu and staff were excellent. Good value for money as well so close to covent garden."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "We had the 50% off good offer. It's very good value, and the food it good. The service can be a little slow. So if you're heading to the theatre for 7.30, I'd recommend getting there for 5.30."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "This was the first time I had been to Boulevard Brasserie and thoroughly enjoyed it. After I booked, I discovered it is the sister restaurant to the Palm Court Brasserie in Covent Garden which I have been to a couple of times and enjoyed both, so it came as no surprise that the Boulevard was equally as good. The ambience is different here, however everything was still extremely good - service, food, table by the window on the 1st floor so one could watch what was going on below on the pavement. It had been a very warm day so sitting by an open window with a nice breeze every so often was just what we wanted. Definitely worth a return tripon a future trip to London."
    dined on 16/07/2014
  • "We asked for and got the table right in the middle of the huge fully open window which was about half the width of the restaurant so we could enjoy the fresh air and watch Covent Garden go by outside. It was like eating outside without any risk of getting wet, though it was a lovely evening anyway. The whole experience was really good. Just the right level of friendly service from a Brazilian waiter who had managed to be cheerful despite the world cup. The food was universally liked and came at just the right time. Very highly recommended."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "What a pleasant surprise to find a restaurant in Covent Garden that was not overly priced, was very friendly and served beautifully cooked traditional French fare (not a microwave in sight). Throughly recommend."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "We've eaten at Boulevard Brasserie a number of times on the set menu and like the varied selection and think it is good value"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "Our waiter Sofania was a delight!! My friend and I were very undecided on what to eat and changed our minds a few times!! He was very charming and helpful although we had changed our minds and suggested smaller dishes as I'm not a big meal eater..good was lovely...meatballs yum!"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "We have visited for lunch, dinner, and this time, a pre-theatre dinner for three; always good service and a great menu. Even the complication of one of our party being held up at work didn't trouble our waiter, who smiled and joked all the way through our disjointed ordering and the third person "catching up". Brilliant ! Will keep returning."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "great relaxed atmosphere. The food was very good - a good depth of flavour, it was good value at full price but we had 50% discount deal which made it great value. The restaurant happily gave the discount, with no hidden extras. The service was really good, we had one mix up re the orders and the waiter handled the situation really well. am going back for more moules...really good."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "Excellent french foods, friendly service. TT 50% outstanding value"
    dined on 14/07/2014
  • "I booked on open table and added a note to say my friend can only eat gluten free. When we arrived our waiter was fantastic, already had a list of what she could and couldn't eat...very impressed! Great value food for pre theater....just once we ordered the service was a bit slow (as in kitchen) so ended up rushing a bit. But all in a very good little place and would definitely go back!"
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "We took advantage of the 3 courses and Kia Royale deal and thought it was excellent value. The food was fantastic, service was friendly and we will definitely go back!"
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "BE CAREFUL: I booked this restaurant because it had some special offers but on arrival we were told that these didn't apply and that this was stated on their website. Indeed it was on their web site but not on the opentable site. The "offers" it would appear, only applied for one hour on three days and some only applied after 10 PM. On hearing this we chose not to eat there because if paying full price there are far better restaurants in the vicinity."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "An excellent find. Food was very good, service was also very good - attentive but not intrusive. Good location, near the Lion King. 50% off food offer was an attraction but it would be worth a visit even without that. Plenty of room upstairs makes it an option for a larger group."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Boulevard Brasserie is our pre theatre regular for the opera house a few steps away. Had the pre theatre fixed menu this time and food was slightly better than the last couple of visits. We will be back."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Went here with family and just picked it out from gourmet society book. We were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted warmly and showed to our table which was downstairs. The waiter was charming and attentive. My daughter and I had the beef bourginon which was absolutely delicious and piping hot. Portions were generous to the point where we couldn't manage a sweet. Next time I'm in london would definitely go there again, and my other daughter and her husband, who are both vegetarians and live in London are certainly going back. We came away talking about the lovely food and how full we were. Can't wait to go back!"
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "We had a lovely meal at the Boulevard Brasserie. The service was very good - highly attentive staff. Tasty food and good ambiance."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Had an early supper before theatre. It's great to experience a place that does what it says on the tin - it's a brasserie, and for once serves excellent quality food at reasonable prices. The only difference to a french brasserie is that the staff are warm, friendly and helpful despite being very busy and we never felt hurried as can happen. It takes a while for food to come but that wait is reflected in the quality of the cooking. Excellent find in Covent Garden."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Outstanding service and very good food, perfectly paced"
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Good value with the 50% off food deal. Convenient and staff very friendly. House wine disappointing."
    dined on 08/07/2014
  • "Dinner for four; prompt, helpful service throughout; fish for mains excellent; limited range of desserts but indulgently enjoyable; Opentable 50% deal made it a very reasonably priced evening. Sad that a noisy group of four at an adjacent table spoke at the top of their voices for much of the time."
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "Four of us enjoyed the pre-theatre set + Kir Royale to kick-off on Saturday, Friendly front of house ; great table downstairs; warm ambience with temporary respite away from the madding crowds of Covent Garden; and outstanding service. The food quality in the two / three course set was excellent; and the wine - also sold by half litre carafe (at last someone is learning from France) - hit the spot. Great value & experience. Will return!"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Overall a good experience with an attentive waiter who spotted when waiting for food."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Lovely french restaurant just off Covent Garden, nice food, outstanding service. Has a fab bar in basement which serves the best fresh cocktails."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "First time at Boulevard Brasserie. We were going to the theatre. The food was very good and excellent value. Two of us ate off the Set Menu and two off the a la carte. The fish was excellent. The staff were friendly courteous and helpful. The service was great and we will definitely be returning."
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "Nice environment in the downstairs section although just a bit noisy. Not rushed or feeling that table was for a set time. Good range of choices on the menu and a reasonable wine list with carafe option. Service was attentive without being overbearing and very good value for money."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "We enjoyed a very good lunch in this restaurant. My guests are vegetarian and were well satisfied with the wide range of vegetarian options on the menu, in fact a wider and more imaginative choice than most other restaurants in the area offer. I chose the skate special dish which could not be faulted. The service was excellent and even though the restaurant soon filled up the waiters remained efficient, friendly and courteous."
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "Really nice meal - very good vfm - highly recommend. Top service"
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "Five of us ate here before going to the Aldwych Theatre last week. It took a little while for the waiter to take our food orders, but as soon as we explained that we only had a short time before we had to leave, he made every effort to get our food out as soon as he could. The food was all really good. The salmon main course, in particular, was delicious. It's great value if you're after something quick but tasty before you go out."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "Nothing to complain about. Very good food, service and decent ambience, and a good price, especially with the TT offer. Would gladly return."
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "Great quality of food and excellent value (took the 50%a la carte discount option) with a traditional French bistro feel. Quality service. Will definitely return."
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "Great place to go with friends for Sunday roast. Had 6 of us there in a nice spacious table. Good food, not extraordinary but great value and nice staff."
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "We booked a pre- theatre dinner and arrived 15 minutes early to find that our table was ready. Plenty of choice on the menu, our food arrived promptly but not so fast that we felt pressured. Portion sizes were good and the food delicious. We liked the fact that you could order a 500cl carafe of wine which was just right for the two of us. Service was efficient, friendly but not over- attentive. Very conveniently located for the Royal Opera House, will definitely return."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Great food (best mushroom soup...), excellent service, pleasant environment, reasonable prices, extensive menu... I could go on and on..."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Yet another hugely enjoyable meal with fabulous quality food, good portion sizes and incredible value. The fresh, thick smoked salmon starter on the set menu comes in a very generous portion and the boeuf bourgignon was tender, rich and tasty. Combined with the inclusive Kir Royale and some additional, reasonably priced wine, we had a delightful evening and will return (again) shortly"
