Pre/post Theatre
Boulevard Brasserie is one of Covent Garden’s most iconic restaurants fixtures. Serving heart-warming French classics since 1991, this grande dame of brasseries is the perfect place to soak up Covent Garden's unique cultural heritage. Set over three intimate floors with views of the Royal Opera House and décor reminiscent of 1920’s art nouveau Europe, Boulevard Brasserie echoes a true sense of Parisian style in London’s own Theatreland. The restaurant and café offers a selection of carefully curated menus founded on seasonality, freshness and flavour. Guests can choose from our popular Lunch and Pre-Theatre Menu, Light Lunches, Dinner Menu all serving Parisian classics such as French Onion Soup, Moules Marinière & frites, Croque Monsieur, Coq au vin, Crème Brûlée and our much-loved Traditional Afternoon Tea Menu.

Food was very nice and fairly good value. Cocktails expensive and not very good. Champagne cocktails weren’t properly chilled. Friendly waiting staff. Nothing too much trouble.

Excellent French food. Server was very pleasant and helpful but the restaurant appears under staffed. Waitress was really hustling but had a whole room full of guests to attend to. All things considered she was excellent, but needs help from management.

Fantastic pre theatre meal. Food was outstanding such high quality. The creamiest nutty goats cheese starter. A melt in your mouth minute steak with tasty peppercorn sauce, and a velvety smooth creme brûlée to finish. The service was impeccable. I would highly recommend.

Nice quiet table but it was a bit dark and had to use torch on phone to read the menu, as did it other diners.

As you would expect, pre-theatre dining at 5.30pm was quiet. Restaurant was very atmospheric but a bit too dark - needed my mobile torch to read the menu. Food and service was excellent and overall enjoyed the experience. Would go again.

Another great dining experience for a couple of couples meeting up for lunch in London. Very good food and choice of wines/drinks supported with excellent service. We were really well looked after, even with all our dietary challenges. Something good for everybody.

Service was lacking. I don’t think they have enough staff to cover the customers. Food was fine, but not spectacular.

We were late due to traffic. Excellent reception and superb service made up for a slow production of our main courses. This was at the particularly busy pre theatre time and we were still out in adequate time. The mains were classic French and exactly as expected.

This is a place to consider as good version of the traditional French Bistro which is just what us needed sometimes.

We had chateaubriand and it was really very good, if cooked slightly more than we would have liked. A soup starter was delicious, very unusual with roasted peppers also. Warm goats cheese salad very good also, with lots of nuts for crunch. We had a baked cheesecake dessert and though it was most enjoyable, we thought the sauce tasted slightly mass produced. Service was a bit slow to start, but I think we arrived at the end of one shift and the start of another, so once our new waiter took hold it was much better. Excellent value with the 50% off food offer and very pretty lit up in the dark.

We have been to Boulevard many times and it still remains our go-to restaurant for pre-theatre dinner in Covent Garden. We always receive good food, friendly service and great value (especially when using the regular deals on offer).

The ambience and staff were attentive & friendly. The food was ok but pasta could have been warmer and was not anything special (veg) options there buy don't expect too much. Good only value for money if you book via open table 50% off otherwise would have been very overpriced. Would come back but only on the 50% off price.

Cozy, quiet restaurant area (busier bar upstairs). Our reservation was honored immediately, and the waitress was very friendly and efficient. Great place for pre-theatre dinner in the West End!
