Fabulous restaurant!
The food is just amazing and the staff are very friendly. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and were given a free glass of bubbly each which was lovely.
We come here every time we’re in London and avail of their 50% off 2 courses of food offer which makes it very affordable for first class french cuisine. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely evening - the food was outstanding, and was matched by the service. As it was Sunday, and the theatres are not open, it was relatively quiet, but there was enough going on that we avoided that ‘empty restaurant’ atmosphere.

With the 50% off it was fine, the moules marinieres were nice but the £30 medium-rare ordered steak was hard and small, the chocolate cake dessert uninspired. I will not really go back to be honest, especially not for their full price.

IN general it was an amazing experience, food was lovely as were most of the staff. Only downside was our server kept repetedly asking for me to order whilst I was still waiting for my friend to arrive even though from the outset I said I needed to wait for her - it made me feel rushed even though we didnt even use the full two hours booked despite her being 15 mins late. Saying this it was only minor and the experience was still lovely - I will 100% be returning again! Thank you :)

This has always been a very good restaurant in terms of food and service; the afternoon teas are particularly noteworthy. I was however disappointed with the quality of the food on this lunchtime visit. It resembled a small portion of a ready meal from a supermarket rather than a properly prepared dish. There were few diners but everyone was seated at adjacent or near adjacent tables so there was little social distancing.
I sincerely hope that these issues are merely a blip under current challenging conditions.

Just a charming French restaurant with great value for money offers. A fillet steak for £15 is unbeatable, and so well cooked.

Such a lovely place to eat. My brother and I always came here on a half term (we are both teachers!) to catch up, eat great French food and drink rosé pre-Covid. As soon as we could come back, we did and it did not disappointment. Get the chicken Milanese - delish! Will be back again in the summer holidays!

Had booked afternoon tea with unlimited prosecco, but on arrival this was not in fact available and was obviously an error due to open table allowing a 7pm booking... the matter was rectified as we were offered unlimited prosecco at no extra cost alongside food from the menu. It was an excellent outcome and I consider this as outstanding service..and the food was great. Bravo!

I love Boulevard Brasserie and really wanted to support them after lockdown. The service was great as always, very friendly and welcoming. They were patient while we catching up before deciding on what to eat. The starters were great and we were both looking forward to our main courses. Unfortunately, the steaks were overcooked. We asked for medium rare - what we got was medium well done! I am hoping this was a little blip and will be back though as I do really like the restaurant.
