    I have visited this restaurant twice in the past two weeks! The first time, I went with two friends before a theatre performance and the service was very quick, the waiter very attentive, and the food was of a really high standard. Though the restaurant was busy, our waiter made sure we made it to our showing in time, and it was an overall joyous experience. This week I went for a date with my boyfriend, and the experience was equally as good. We enjoyed the sea food linguine and beef bourguignon mains with the house white. The atmosphere was romantic, cosy and our waitress gave us just the right amount of attention. I have recommended this restaurant in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. I have never had a bad experience here.

    Dined on 24/11/2014
    I went here on the 50% off food deal and I must say it was excellent value. Everything was extremely good, the only exception being the Pork Belly which was a bit dry, but that's a minor point as everything else was great. It had a bit of a buzz to it without being too noisy, and the service was excellent. It's good honest food, not fine dining- but decent enough- the sort of thing you might find in Paris but modified towards British tastes, and on the 50% off food deal it's a bargain.

    Enjoyable meal here and good value with the 50% off food deal. We did have one problem in that having drunk one bottle of wine, we wanted a carafe of the same wine. We were pretty sure that it was a different wine. The waitress changed it immediately, bringing the bottle to the table to pour into the carafe.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 22/11/2014
    Had a lovely meal here on a Saturday night. We travelled with a vegetarian so picked here based on tips from friends and also a great selection for vegetarians. Our veggie friend was most impressed and took longer than the two carnivores to decide! Only down side was the service was a bit on the slow side. Long delays between ordering and starter, and then between starter to main. We must have been there for nearly two hours in total, but the flowing wine, and the pre-dinner cocktails made up for any pauses! I was however pleased, we were not going to the theatre as we would never have made it! Despite the waiting time, the food was excellent, and very homely. The staff were friendly and welcoming and also knowledgable as our veggie asked about her starter and was given an instant response from the waiter.

  • Where was our starter??
    Japanesetraveller
    Dined on 22/11/2014
    We order the starter which was not served over 30 mins. They actually brought something on our table but came back and took it away from us. Then the main dish was served before the starter. Therefore, we ended up with giving the starter up... the pasta was a bit too much. But other than the above, the people, the taste of other dishes, such as soup and Eton mess, were good.

    We were treated very courteously and professionally by all the staff at Boulevard. I had mentioned on the booking that we were eating before a theatre visit and this had been picked up and was acknowledged. Even though we turned up 20 mins early and the restaurant was full, a table was found and we were served quickly

    The pre-theatre OT menu at Boulevard Brasserie is great value for dependable French food with a Kir Royale. Our salmon starters were tasty though small, and the mains were very filling, rich -tasting portions of classic Beef Bourguignon with mash and Duck Confit with lentils - just the job on a cold evening. Service was friendly and prompt and we had enough time for dessert and coffee before the play. Our table this time was quite squashed in a corner, which was less comfortable than usual but this venue remains a family favourite.

    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.

    Booked through Open Table for dinner after a theatre matinee. The deal was two courses and a Kir Royale for £17.50 which was excellent value. The staff were friendly, and the service was very good. The food was well cooked and presented and served on warm plates. The Beef Bourgignon was a stand out with tender beef, with vegetables in a well made sauce. The church candles on every table add to the atmosphere. We will certainly return.

    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.

    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.
