Service and food was not good. We were ignored the entire meal by staff and waited over 30 mins for our two mains to arrive. The mushroom pate did not have any truffle in so we were refunded this but barely apologised. We were disappointed with every course and it felt very expensive (£60) for one starter and two mains when we did not drink alcohol with the meal.

Bordelaise is brilliant, couldn’t recommend it enough. Top quality food coupled with top quality service. We had to wait for our table to be ready so they gave us a bottle of wine on the house, which they really didn’t have to do!

The cote de beef special was the best steak I’ve eaten for as long as I can remember. Service was a little slow but it was Valentine’s Day so an exception rather than the rule. Overall very good experience!

We have been coming to this restaurant since it’s been open and the last few times I must admit it seems like they’re getting a bit too complacent. Although the food is still good quality and the service is really good as well I found the last few times I’ve come the portions have got smaller and the prices are going up and also the menu Never changes.For instance I had a French onion soup to start the crouton was so small and also hardly any onions in it iwas just basically watery.
It’s a big shame because this was a very big favourite restaurant for me and my husband to go to and also being local and being a French restaurant was a big plus but if you compare it to like a cote brasserie I’m afraid it doesn’t compare so unfortunately it will be a good while till we come back again I think

The staff were friendly and the ambience of the market is fun, but the portions were small the food was very average and over priced. Despite having heard good things ahead of going there, unfortunately I would not go back.

Love Bordelaise! Steak night Tuesday is a winner. The service started a bit slow but got much better. Great choice of wines and I’ll be going back for baked st marcelin! Delicious.

Lovely Christmassy atmosphere. Although the tables were very close together inside we were not conscious of being overlooked by others. The food was delicious and we all had the flat iron steaks then shared the sides amongst us. Will definitely be back.

Food was generally well cooked and presented, but the steak was very heavy on the onion - i suppose this should be somewhat expected from a French restaurant but it still seemed excessive and overpowering. We went on a saturday night where it was particularly noisy, so definitely not a good place for a quiet/romantic Saturday meal if that's what you're after. Can imagine it would be a nice place for food before drinks and a busy night though. My least favourite thing would have to be the value for money. We went for the 500g cote de boeuf, well cooked but not a particularly nice cut of meat or particularly flavoursome (except the onion). Not quite the level I would have expected compared to other restaurants serving good steak in nearby areas (e.g. Arlos in Balham).

Lovely meal at Bordelaise. Friendly staff and good buzzy atmosphere. Food was excellent and everyone enjoyed all the dishes. Enjoy sitting in the more indoor section of the restaurant and slightly more comfortable there. Will definitely come again!

Great friendly authentic French bistro in heart of buzzy Tooting Broadway Market. Superb choice of lovely food, the braised ox cheeks as a main were outstanding as was the traditional French onion soup to start.

I love Bordelaise! I love it even more when there's 2 for 1 steaks on a Tuesday. Amazing value. Delicious steak, green beans (I can never do green beans the way the French do them) and frites. A very nice glass of merlot and there's a Tuesday!

Really disappointing meal ... The snail starter was served in a scorching dish but the snails were cold. No vegetarian starters and the dish marked as vegetarian on the snack menu wasn’t actually vegetarian. The fish was over cooked and the pie was average. The waiters were friendly and helpful abut they really needed another member of waiting staff as they seemed to be overstretched.

A familiar French menu of deliciously cooked food with a good short wine list. Excellent service, and a friendly team. Don’t take cards so you need to bring a wad of cash.

First time there and it definitely won't be the last!!
Delicious onion soup, fish perfectly cooked, sides of dauphinoise, green beans and chips in drippping plus simply sumptuous cote de boeuf with cheese and desserts to match.

The steak was seriously undercooked. We asked for medium rare and it was ‘blue’ not even ‘rare’! No issue with sticking it back on the grill but it tends to take the shine off the experience. Very good value on a Tuesday with 2 flatirons for the price of 1.

Really lovely ambience and fantastic service. Perfect for a date night, with family, with friends i would recommend to anyone looking for a quality meal in Tooting market. This has been one of my favourites since it opened and remains so. The two for one steak deal on a Tuesday is a BARGAIN so get yourself down to Bordelaise!! Great wine choice also :)

I thought the restaurant was beautiful with the dried flowers outside. I had the prawns and leeks which went together really well and the sauce was delicious. My friend had the confit duck which was perfectly cooked and so tasty.
