Diner Reviews
  • "My friend and I visited Boulevard Brasserie on Saturday and our waiter Abdel really made us feel very welcome and we were very well looked after. The food was very good and as we were in a hurry we were pleased that we were able to receive our courses in quick succession. Thanks"

  • "On visiting the Boulevard Brasserie with friends it was our first choice when having a long overdue night out as a couple. The food was perfect, in flavour, quality and quantity and although the price is a little more than we would normally afford it was well worth every penny for our special night out."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "Another enjoyable experience at Boulevard Brasserie. Food and service good. Particularly good value with the toptable deal."
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "The food was great. The staff was lovely. The restaurant was at a great location, with nice view. The atmosphere was relaxing and characteristic. Highly recommended. Although eton mess has always been my favourite dessert, it was very disappointing. My friend ordered a creme brulee which was incredible! Would go again ! P.s The staff were very helpful and friendly"

  • "Dined here recently just before going to the theatre. Pre-booked a table via the restaurant website using Toptable - all very straightforward. Restaurant is in a lovely part of London close to Covent Garden. Staff were all very attentive and our food and service was excellent. Restaurant was quite busy this early in the evening so it is obviously a popular venue."
    dined on 18/04/2014
  • "place is Ok. service was good, attentive staff...Food wasn't good, dry fish, nothing tasted fresh. had feeling all they cook is pre-made and microwave heated...Sorry about leaving bad review. improve your food quality..I would not come back.."
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "Four of us dined here.My partner, my son and his Fiancé. Having read other reviews I was confident that it would turn out to be a value for money evening. In fact, it was better - good food, well presented, but complemented by a professional waiter (attentive, friendly, without being overbearing). Also, rather surprising and pleasing for the West End, absolutely no pressure on us to vacate table at the end of the evening. Well done Boulevard Brasserie - definitely coming back."
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "The 50% off food deal was excellent value, and the food was lovely. Only fault was the wait between courses. We didn't have enough time for a dessert. "
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "Met a friend here - we both enjoyed it very much. We decided on a set menu which was very good value for money. Staff delightful Great meeting place & so central especially for Covent Garden."
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "Good portions of food and good attentive service but not overbearing. 50% offer makes the meal outstanding value. Will probably use again. Excellent venue for pre theatre I would think."
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "A good Moules offering but not so good on the duck confit or Boeuf main course. Waiter even managed to spill the '11 Malbec on his first pour of the evening! However, with a 25% on gourmet society card, it was a value-for-money evening meal."
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Going to the restaurant was a bit like going to a French provincial restaurant . The waiting staff was very attentive and not pushy. Food was nicely cooked and presented . Portions were quite generous. "
    dined on 24/03/2014
  • "My husband and I had a very nice meal in Boulevard Brasserie recently. The service was very efficient and friendly. There was plenty of choice on the menu and the wines were very reasonably priced. Would recommend."
    dined on 24/03/2014
  • "We keep trying the TopTable restaurants but to date had only had one really good experience. However, Boulevard Brasserie made it 2! The restaurant was a little noisy early on-we'd booked for 7.30 to miss the pre-theatre crowd-but less so later. Food was great although my friend got served the wrong starter. Service was very good, attentive but not annoying. Would definitely go back. Good value for money with the 50% offer. House wine was also very good. "
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "I been to Boulevard Brasserie a few times. Each time does not disappoint. Good food and service. Even better with TopTable offer. Will be back soon."
    dined on 04/02/2014
  • "I have dined at the Boulevard Brasserie many times, food varied choice but the menu stays almost the same between visits and is consistently good, they had a confusing array of offers available which made it good value, we ate the top table 50% off food from the a la carte menu. Starters were good, attractively served, and then we all chose the duck confit which was excellent and a large portion size. A word of warning, they are spread out over 3 floors, please request a ground floor table if anyone has limited mobility.The food is typical French Brasserie style food, well cooked , well presented and our service charming even though we did not get the table I had requested when making the booking."
    dined on 13/04/2014
  • "We wanted a place where we can relax and forget about daily troubles. We definitely got that. Food was amazing, service attentive, without being on top of you all the time."
    dined on 13/04/2014
  • "Having visited the Boulevard Brasserie for a post-theatre meal in February, and having been very impressed, we returned on a Friday evening with friends in early April and hoped that our recommendation would not disappoint. We dined off the special '3 courses and a Kir Royale' menu and it proved to be not only good value, but a really lovely meal. All of us agreed that the food, ambience and service (our waiter, Gabriel was spot on) were excellent. Would highly recommend."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Food was very good, as was the friendly service. We had a set menu which was very good value for money. Would definitely go back; wouldn't hesitate to recommend."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "We went here before seeing the Bodyguard at the Adelphi theatre. We had booked the 3 courses with kir royale offer. We sat upstairs near the doors as it was a nice warm day. Atmosphere was relaxed although staff were attentive. The drinks and food came in good time. There was a good choice of food. Would definitely recommend and fine there again."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "We have been to the Boulevard Brasserie a few times now and enjoyed it every time. Style of food is French Country style rather so food and servings are hearty. Service is friendly and efficient."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "Five of us dined here Wednesday evening on the 50% off offer on al la carte menu. The food was superb and we had great service. The restaurant was very busy, nice buzzing atmosphere and we would definitely recommend it."
    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "Expensivde at full price (paying for the location) but great value with 50% off. Does what it states - decent french food in a bistro style setting. Only complaint is the restaurant was extremely hot!"
    dined on 18/02/2014
  • "Great food, good service from a waiter with a lovely sense of humour. Only thing is that this is such a buzzy venue that it was slightly difficult sometimes to hear all that my guest was saying - perhaps I'm getting old!"
    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "We were pre Theatre special with a Kir and the service was swift and eficient as well as being delicious. The service was friendly and we would certainly go again both for pre Theatre dinner and to enjoy a meal without a deadline."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "Have been to this restaurant a few times and it never disappoints. Lovely food, great service, highly recommended."
    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "This is the second time we had visited Boulevard Brasserie and have really enjoyed it both times. We are so impressed by the excellent standard of the food, and fantastic value. The service has also been amazing both times, the first time we were in a rush to get to a theatre booking and they managed to get 3 courses out to us in under an hour. We'll definitely be going back here!"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Booked this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal with the 50% off offer. Amazing value, food was fantastic and service was great! Great intimate romantic restaurant, will definitely be coming back again"
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "Everything was perfect with the food and service. However, it was very stuffy and quite warm. I did ask for the aircon to be switched on but it wasn't very effective."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "Went here with my boyfriend last Tuesday evening with 50% off food offer and we really enjoyed ourselves. Food was great (shared calamari and salad for starters and had duck and tuna steak as main course). Portions were big so didn't really need to order a side with the fish. With 50% off it was great value and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Would definitely return."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "as part of mothers 90th birthday/weekend away in London, Saturday lunch was taken at the Boulevard Brasserie. As we knew we were going to be in Covent Garden, this restaurant was chosen for its close proximity to the central halls. The staff were excellent, and the food was superb, they even managed to organise a small birthday treat for mother, without prompting and with only 30 minutes notice. Will certainly visit again"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Our whole dining experience here was excellent. The food was delicious, plentiful, good value & very nicely presented. I can recommend the Duck. The offers available were all good & we opted for the 50% off te food. I can honestly say, it was plentiful & excellent vlaue for money. My daughter & I visited here for a pre theatre meal. The staff were very attentive & on the ball, being aware of our time limit. I wold definitely go back here again."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "I have dined here with friends on many occasions and always been very satisfied.However,this time,although the staff were excellent as usual,I wasn't so satisfied with my dinner.....I should add that my two colleagues were totally satisfied but my chicken,which I had never tried before in this restaurant,was very dry and the chips were soggy.Some problems this time but it wont stop me going back as I'm sure that this was a temporary blip."
    dined on 07/04/2014
  • "We had a good meal, that was reasonably priced, here after the theatre and would recommend this restaurant. The waiters were very pleasant and attentive."
    dined on 06/04/2014
  • "Four of us dined at Boulevard Brasserie on Fri 28th March and had the offer of 3 courses and a glass of Kir Royale for £22.50. This proved to be excellent value! There was large glass of Kir Royale before our starter - I thoroughly enjoyed my Brie in filo pastry and the soup apparently was delicious. My husband and I then had the Beef Bourgignon which was amazing: lots of lovely flavours including lardons and beautifully smooth mash to accompany it. We finished with Creme Brulee which again was totally indulgent. Service was attentive but not intrusive. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant for its quality of food and the fact that they have an offer like this available on a Fri and Sat night"
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "We booked the Sunday lunch 3 courses + Bellini at q short notice and so didn't have sky high expectations, The food was very good and plentiful but what warranted the 5 stars was the service. The staff were without exception friendly, helpful and accommodating. Out waiter (upstairs, dark hair, cheeky...) was brilliant and bags of fun and could obviously tell that it was ok and actually welcomed by us (he was more formal with other tables). We emerged well fed, well watered, and well entertained vowing to return. Well done!"
    dined on 06/04/2014
  • "I have eaten here many times and I am never disappointed."
    dined on 06/04/2014
  • "A great location for pre theatre supper and a good atmosphere, if you like a traditional French bistro. But, the food wasn't good. The menu offered a good range of bistro favourites but the soups - both the fish soup and the onion soup were very thick, very brown and very salty. The casseroles suffered from the same problem- over stewed and very dark. There were no shallots in the boeuf bourginon and no taste of red wine. The duck confit also lacked a freshly cooked taste. So, no, we wouldn't return to Boulevard Brasserie or recommend it."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "A group of 8 of us met for a birthday celebration. We found most of the staff very helpful and friendly and they identified the birthday person and brought a free cocktail without being asked. The menu was sufficiently diverse to please the wide range of taste in the group. The portions were very generous and the speed of service about right for a leisurely meal. The booking confirmation had made clear that we only had the table for 2 hours but when we arrived we were told that we had the table for the rest of the evening so were able to have a leisurely cocktail before going to our table. We particularly liked the warm ambience of the restaurant."
