    We had arranged a family get-together at Boulevard Brasserie. I changed the numbers from 6 to 8 the day before which was easily accomodated. On the evening, the service was excellent. We were downstairs in a room which was busy but had a lovely ambience. The menu had a good selection including a good choice for vegetarians. Although the restaurant was busy the food was served fairly promptly and was very good. To cap it all we had a 50% off food deal....so all in all a fantastic evening. We'll be back.

    Very nice food, nice atmosphere. I went on the 50% off all food OT deal which was very good value. My only disappointment was that I had to ask the waiters to take the deal off the bill, as the original bill was full price.

    A very nice dinner for two. We had a starter and a main each and shared a bottle of wine. The staff were very friendly and helpful, bringing the food and drink out in a comfortable sort of time frame - we were not rushed or bored at all. They were very tolerant and adept at dealing with incompetent customers on the next table. Lovely atmosphere, good portions, good food.

    We had another good meal at Boulevard Brasserie. The food was good and the portion size was just right. The desert I wanted from the set menu was unavailable and the waiter immediately offered an alternative desert from the main menu and even substituted vanilla ice cream for the mint chantilly as I do not like mint. A very good experience and we will definitely return.

    Booked for a pre theatre meal on Saturday evening. Service was excellent with a phone call to confirm on Sat morning and friendly welcome. Brasserie menu is what you would expect, and better service than you would get in Paris. The tables are quite close but we didn't feel too crowded and never felt that the waiters would crash into us. The meal was excellent with good cocktails and fine French wine. Not too pricey given the location.

  • Birthday pre theatre treat

    Dined on 13/11/2014
    We dined pre theatre to celebrate a birthday. We had a lovely welcome and our waitress was very attentive and quick. We really enjoyed the brie starter with a tasty cranberry sauce. All the mains were good too especially the couscous. It was a vibrant atmosphere and nice and warm inside. We would recommend it especially to people who don't want anything to pretentious but still like to be made to feel special. I would go again when next in London and would recommend it to everyone. There were quite a few intimate tables for 2.

    Took my daughter (a student) there for tea. Good menu selection, excellent food, friendly and just-the-right-amount-of-attentiveness service in a lovely atmosphere. Good value with the Open table 50% off offer but maybe a little pricey without this (or maybe I haven't got out enough recently). Would recommend to friends.

    Boulevard Brasserie offered a good variety for the 3 course for £30(incl a Bellini - which was not made with peach juice, rather with peach liqueur which was interesting!). We both had a generous helping of smoked salmon to start with a delicious sour cream sauce accompaniment followed by a lovely salad. Service was friendly but not particularly engaging throughout, but it is worth noting that we were under no pressure to vacate our table and enjoyed a slow lunch watching the world go by - rare for this busy area of London not to have felt pressure to hurry.

    We went to Boulevard Brasserie with a set menu offer, including a kir royale. There was a surprisingly wide choice and I opted for the pork chop with mash, which was absolutely delicious, really tasty and perfectly cooked. This was outstanding value at less than £20 each. The drinks service was a little slow and we had to ask several times for water and our drinks. However, the food was served promptly and piping hot. Would most definitely return.

    The food was traditional brasserie fare and there were several options to choose from, even on the set menu. The ambience was very nice indeed, as the restaurant filled up by 6pm with the pre-theatre crowds. Easy listening French music on in the background added to the French vibe. The service was slick, friendly and professional and the whole place ran like clockwork, a great choice for pre-theatre diners in particular.

    boulevard brasserie is a busy restaurant just off covent garden. the menu is a nice mix and there is something for everyone. the wine list is fine and there is a selection of wines by the glass. the staff are friendly and helpful having the 50% discount on food makes it very good value and well worth a visit. for me the only down side is that the tables are very close together.

    The food is absolutely delicious; I would happily pay a lot more than I did for the same meal. the portions are generous, perfectly cooked, and full of flavour. Nobody from our large party had any complaints about the food. I have dined here on several occasions and the standard has always been high. Perfect setting and ambiance, accurately described as 'authentically Parisian" by one of the diners. Great wine, great service. great night. Would absolutely recommend.

    This was the least enjoyable meal I have had at this restaurant. The food was somewhat overcooked and the service was very slow. As this was a pre-theatre meal this left us rushing at the last minute which is not what one desires on a night out.
