Had one of the best meals within memory. Menu truly authentic French. Our two main courses, quenelles and roast guinea hen were done perfectly.
Wine list is extensive. Prices high but what one has come to expect for the classier wines.
Ambience still a bar bistro, less enticing than the food. Sommelier Miguel excellent.
Do go!

Fab service, attentive and caring.
Great atmosphere in the restaurant.

We enjoyed a drink at the bar before having dinner.
Great selection of cocktails and champagne, delicious cheese gougères, friendly barmen.

Dinner was perfect, we all enjoyed our starters and mains! food quality was very consistent, tasteful and amazing!
Big wow for the deserts: we just loved the Tangerine baba and the Tarte Tatin. And well done to our French waiter.

Not our first time and certainly not the last!
Thank you Bar Boulud!

The restaurant has a great atmosphere, lively music but not to loud that obstructs conversations. The staff where professional and courteous, coming to the table at the right times, bringing the food at a prudent amount in between, and not taking long to fulfil small requests.

The food was amazing, although I got what I wanted, I wish there was less hearty options that is not a salad. I would find it difficult to bring someone to the restaurant who has a different taste then I do. I wish the dessert menu as well had more options like a simple cake or a pie. Sometimes the simplest thing is exactly what you need after a great meal.

First time diner. Pleasantly surprised with the vegetarian options. The vege burger was delicious and our party of 4 all agreed that the french fries were perfecto!!!
Good wine menu though my waiter didn't quite know his grapes as well as he might've tried... I managed to get something I liked so all was well.
I would recommend Bar Boulud to anyone and everyone looking for a classy place to dine that won't let you down. (not that pricey)

Been a while since I came here and it's not as good as I remember. Food was "OK", not bad but not memorable either. The skate in particular was way too salty but generally most of the dishes were. We didn't like the service - on the one hand clearing up as soon as the last bite had been eaten (or was still being eaten), on the other forgetting to bring things we'd ordered or one two occasions bringing two when we'd ordered one. A bit of a mess really

We all had a fabulous lunch to celebrate my husbands 60th Birthday. Delicious food, probably the best burger in town! The oysters and snails were top notch . We had the profiterole the finish and they were lovely.

Also forgot to mention the fantastic cocktails.

Looking forward to our next visit.

The atmosphere is lovely- friendly and welcoming. The food in general was of a very good quality, only let down was how oily the French Onion soup was. Other than that - will definitely be coming back!

Nice enough restaurant, however staff oscillated from overkill (three different members of staff working the table) to zero (merrily chatting amongst themselves and not noticing the clients).

Little flexibility in the menu, very limited side orders and even with a children’s menu it’s again not that flexible.

Somewhat surprised we had to make a reservation for 6pm in a Wednesday, especially as he restaurant was empty (14 guests when we left at 7.45pm) In addition you receive two email confirmations and reminders and then have to confirm by calling the restaurant (what’s the point in using an online platform if I have to call the restaurant, surely they should call you as the client?) seems like a pointless booking system. Put another way, if the aim is to make it hard and time consuming then they are fast approaching success in this respect.

Additionally frustrated that the restaurant was unable to accept or process the bill using an American Express card, especially strange as the restaurant was suggested by American Express’s Concierge team.

Work to be done I’m afraid.

Always reliable, consistent, nice looking food.
The waitress responsible for our table was extremely efficient and bubbly/friendly - and provided a high level of service.
The charcuterie board was very good and included unusual offerings, but the burger didn't quite live up to expectations.
The blackberry soufflé was too delicate for my taste, although the yoghurt sorbet was excellent!

Admittedly a late evening booking on a wet and quiet evening, but as soon as the plates had been cleared, the noise began. Not the noise of people enjoying themselves, but a deliberate crash and bang of cutlery and furniture moving by particular member of staff who clearly felt we should leave. Having asked for the bill and paid a visit to the facilities, we found our belongings left by the back door. Indeed a very subtle hint! Being local I have spent many happy hours at Bar Baloud, but this was by far the worse experience I have ever had. Come on Mandarin sort it out. If you don't want your guests, don't open your doors!

Only had 2 halal choices, chicken and beef which was ok but then they only had one dish of each left. The chicken was very poorly presented, chewy and probably broken out of the freezer with a crow bar.

Service still top notch.

I have eaten here before which is why I came back, it my early evening choice of a single glass of wine and the BB burger left me feeling a little shortchanged... because the bill came to £40!! For a burger and a glass of wine. I knew the prices, but the burger was very underwhelming.

Bar Boulud is a nicely balanced dining option for those who want a classy setting without it being stuffy or pretentious. Prices are reasonable for this type of establishment and the comfortable seating and professional staff makes a great evening. The food is quite good too. Recomended.

It was my sixth time at Bar Boulud, as I had always considered one of my favourite places in London. The cocktails were excellent as usual. However this time the quality of the food was rather disappointing. I probably won't be going back again.
