    I cannot fault our evening. However, the restaurant is classed as disabled friendly, but the wheelchair could not fit into the bathroom. We had to leave and go ask at another restaurant to use their bathroom and come back. Not ideal. Food, service and ambience was great!

    We loved the place. It was beautiful and good value for money. We opted for the prix fixe menu and enjoyed all the dishes (baked brie starter and beef bourguignon for my husband, chicken liver parfait starter and roasted sea bass for me). I had emailed the restaurant asking to reserve a quiet place for our group of five, and they accommodated our request. The kids menu had enough options for our kids to choose from. The only disappointment was that my husband never got the cup of tea he ordered, but the restaurant refunded us the cost.

    What a great restaurant find! Such a lovely waiter who was obviously busy but took time to answer questions and as we had smallish children with us was so patient and friendly, some places find hard to cater for kids and we thought this would be the same but pleasantly surprised. Great food and good size portions for the children too. Would definitely recommend.

    Our second visit. Took friends for a pre-theatre meal and they were equally impressed with the delicious food, the efficient and friendly waiter and the authentic French ambience. We will all be recommending this as the go to restaurant when in the Covent Garden area.

    Hmmm. We were really looking forward to eating here and, to be fair, the food was good. However, in spite of booking a month ago, we were offered perhaps the worst table in the house - wedged in between the waiter's station and the entrance to the room in which we were to be seated. We asked to move to an adjacent table, but were told that "no - but we could have the one next to it in case a large party came in and they had to push our requested table together with another on the other side" - thus demonstrating that they cared more about "possible" big groups than actual small ones, and also that the attempt to fob us off with the original table was just that, and not a result of necessity. As noted above the food was good - but certainly no better than at our local pub. The waiter appeared to forget about us after our main course and we had to request sweet menus. While I am usually a generous tipper I do object to having a 12.5% service charge added to the bill - it's what I would have added anyway, but I really don't like the implication that I'd be so cheap as to not add it myself. So, all in all - caveat emptor. It's not somewhere we will rush back to.

    Absolutely delicious food - the best french onion soup I've had in years. A fantastic choice of food and drink all served by very friendly and attentive waiting staff. A stone's throw from the Lyceum; this restaurant is perfect for pre-theatre dining at a reasonable price.

    We went here for a pre-theatre meal to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The meal was delicious, we particularly enjoyed the wild mushroom risotto and salmon fishcake. The service was very attentive and they even added a candle to the dessert and sang happy birthday. It was great value on the 50% off deal but would have been worth it full price. Thanks again to the team for making us feel so welcome and even giving my daughter a birthday card.

    This was my first time at the restaurant. It is centrally located, just around the corner from Covent Garden and a short walk from Chinatown. I absolutely enjoyed this place. The food was delicious. We ordered a set meal with three courses. I thought it would be small because we didn't choose from the menu, but it wasn't. The food was delicious. By the third course, I was full. I would definitely recommend this place.

    Boulevard Brasserie is a gem in London's West End, offering sophisticated French classics that never disappoint. My partner and I enjoyed a memorable meal featuring the mouthwatering Cote de Boeuf and the exquisite Sea Bass Fillet. To top it off, the dessert cheesecake was simply divine. A must-visit for anyone craving authentic French gastronomy.

    Outstanding service, great afternoon tea :D I initially booked a table in the early afternoon but due to change of plans, I had to change to a later time, not knowing that this was outside the hours they serve afternoon tea. However, when I explained my situation, Mr. Arifi the general manager, asked the kitchen staff if they can make an exception for me, to which they agreed to. I was very impressed by the kindness and hospitality of the staff here and I also enjoyed the afternoon tea by a table at the window upstairs. Would definitely like to go back :)
