Excellent quality food and very friendly staff. (Our table was next to the open window giving onto Wellington Street so the traffic noise was occasionally a bit intrusive.) A lively and pleasant atmosphere in the restaurant.

The restaurant is well located - right in the heart of Covent Garden. The decor is traditional and the atmosphere is good, although the lighting was little low later on!
There was some background music but at a level which did not impact on conversation.
The set meal was good value for the money. We had cause to complain to the waitress about an item on the menu and the manager came and spoke to us very politely, listened very attentively and handled the situation well.
There was no pressure on us to pay the bill and leave once we had finished eating. We sat and chatted for quite a while......

I would describe the service same quality as a fast food chain which doesn’t justify the price

Food is very disappointing, we asked for a medium cooked steak which is over cooked and the whole dish is a disaster

I asked for another drink and the waiter just assumed I wanted the same drink. All service staff are rushing around I could not see any smile on their face

We spent 90 pounds for two people. It is ok for us but the food and service is just not what we normally would get for the price range

I would never go back

I booked to have a birthday lunch and catch up with a friend and it was perfect in every respect ... and the complementary Prosecco was a very nice gesture.
Thank you Boulevard Brasserie!

I've been twice before and enjoyed this restaurant. This time it was dark and rainy outside and so think that made it feel noisy and cramped inside. Service was very good as always, but food was OK, not special. Sorry, but it hasn't put me off coming again.

This well known venue has been a good pre theatre venue for many years. However , it now seems a little understaffed .
The food has become more formulaic and prices have drifted up. The pre theatre menu is a bit thin and accompanying drinks are expensive for what they are.
The competition in the area has dramatically improved and so this would no longer be an automatic choice for me on an evening trip to the theatre.

My friend and I had a very lovely early dinner here. The food was good, an extrensive menu and great service although the table was quite close to the bar so slightly noisy and no real outlook or nice view. I booked online so I was able to get 50% off all the food which was fantastic value. I left my sunglasses behind when I left and they kindly called my mobile so I could quickly return to collect them - greatly appreciated!

We had a reservation in the afternoon and were given the table right by the window, which was ideal on a hot day. The food was delicious! I had the crab and avocado starter, followed by the seafood linguine. Portions were also perfect.

It took a rather long time for us to get our bill at the end though as there were no waiters around while service grew lighter.

Great food - fresh tasty and a little bit different. Excellent service - friendly and attentive (even when busy) without being over the top. Perhaps a little expensive but otherwise a great evening out.

The dinner was nothing special. Plus they didn’t have any salmon on the manu while they have listed 3 different dishes with salmon.
Additionally, the waitress was really rude and impolite through all the dinner.
We have a french girl in our group and she said it was not proper french at all.

Busy brasserie in Covent Garden. Wide range of choices on a la crate menu. We had the 50% off food offer with Opentable, which, surprising, was available on Saturday afternoon. Average food, small sized starters. Would have been overpriced if we had paid the normal cost. So, worthwhile for location and if the 50% offer is on
