The 50% off food Open Table offer is good value at this unpretentious French restaurant in Covent Garden
The downstairs eating area was poorly lit and the service was erratic
Make sure to check the bill to ensure the discount has been applied

Extremely polite and welcoming staff. My friend was going to be a little late so they found me a chair to sit and wait, offered me some water. The service was excellent, not rushed but not at all slow. The food was hot and delicious and excellent value for money. I will definitely be returning there again soon. Highly recommend for any occasion or just meeting friends.

My friend and I had a lovely lunch at Boulevard Brasserie last Monday. The food was delicious and we each had a prosecco to drink. Using the 50% off the food offer (minimum of 2 courses) we thought the meal was very good value. The staff were attentive and allowed us to sit and catch up without rushing us. I've been several times over the years and will definitely return. I would recommend this restaurant especially with an offer.

Waiter was very attentive, food was great and a lovely setting with candles for a dinner date. It’s a bit dark but I guess it’s for mood lighting. The French onion soup and seafood linguine was amazing. Would highly recommend!

Sadly this visit we had a really poor experience with regard to the food, which was a shame as I have been to Boulevard many times over the years and always had excellent food. I love croque monsieur and especially the one in Boulevard made so well with a lovely bechamel sauce and excellent ham and cheese. This time my husband and I both had the croque monsieur on my recommendation. Basically it was cheese on toast with some ham. It was dry and there certainly was no bechamel sauce. Mine was changed for a very bland pate with one piece of warmish toast and some chutney. I was assured it was made on site but not the standard I expected from Boulevard and for the price charged it represented poor value as did the price of the croque. We couldn’t send back my husband’s as he was desperately hungry and had to take medication after food.

We had a cocktail to start which was called a French 75, gin, lemon juice and champagne. Not quite sure how much gin was supposed to be in the mixture but the over powering taste was lemon juice, I couldn’t taste any gin at all.

Our waiter was very charming and the wine was good, but sadly this visit was a total disappointment and not money well spent.

I am sure this was only an unlucky one off experience and we will of course be back in due course.

Best wishes,

Sue Carr-Hill

Had a pre Theatre meal here. Service was excellent and food very tasty. Great pork chop. Cozy ambience, right in Theatre land, and getting quite busy by the time we left.

Lunchtime table for my wife and another couple last Monday.
The Maître D' was very efficient and showed us to a nice out of the way window table. Our waitress was warm friendly and very helpful. The food was very good, we all went for two courses. Two of us had winter casserole and my wife had the vegetarian linguine dish. All washed down with a nice white wine
The restaurant was relatively quiet when we arrived at 12.30 but soon filled up to give a vibrant atmosphere. Nonetheless, we enjoyed a very relaxed meal which afforded us plenty of time to catch up.
Taking advantage of a 50% off food offer, the bill came to just over £100, which seemed extremely good value for a restaurant less than 100m from Covent Garden.
Highly recommended!

We came in a couple of months ago looking for a place to just have drinks and the team was very accommodating so we booked and had dinner this week and it was really lovely. Service was a bit slow but we were in no hurry and the food was great.

Quite noisy from the bar staff loading utensils and glassware. But the 50% off 2 courses meant each person paid £15 for a 2 course meal in Soho. Quite good. Someone ordered the tiger prawns. They were just prawns with the head and tail still on and plated on a hot plate, so it was weird to deshell an entire prawn with utensils but the hot plate made it impossible to do with your hands.

Disappointed with service and lack of rapport with waiting personnel. We had to ask for everything. Wine not good enough for price paid. Some portions too small. Had previous experience which was better. No rush back.

Great food and service. Our table was not ready on arrival so we had to wait a few minutes. We were compensated with a glass of Prosecco each. Charming staff.
Hadn’t eaten here for many years, but we’ll be back!

We were a party of 8 and one of us had been sent a "free bottle of prosecco " voucher which we were not allowed to use. We also wanted to pay with the app which we also were unable to do.
