We had the set lunch - two courses for £20 including a glass of kir royale. It was Saturday lunchtime, quite busy but the service was great, friendly and attentive. Food was fine, certainly better than the bill belied. I would recommend for lunch

Great place for a romantic date - it really makes you feel like you're in Paris!
Food was really good too, we had three courses (I was so full but couldn't resist the chocolate tart!) and authentically French. Portions are generous and staff takes good care of you. Recommended!

This was our first visit to Boulevard Brasserie, and my wife and I both felt it met our expectations in terms of ambience, decor, style ,etc. Having eaten in many similar places in Paris we felt very much at home. My only disappointment was with the quality of the Kir Royale; at £9.95 a glass it should have been made with a better quality champagne, and have been a more generous measure. That apart, a very pleasant evening.

Birthday surprise treat - Great staff and food/drinks
I booked the restaurant for pre-theatre meal as part of a surprise 80th birthday trip for my mum. I advised the restaurant of this, and on arrival my mum was wished a happy birthday and we were all offered complimentary Kir Royales. We were seated at a lovely window table on the ground floor.

When our food arrived, unfortunately my sister had a problem with hers, so the waiter quickly offered an alternative from the menu more to her liking. The manager also came over to make ire everything was OK.

The food was amazing. Between us, we had chicken parfait and Parma ham and figs to start, steak frite, garlic prawns and seafood linguine. We followed the food with beautiful liquer coffees and ‘liquid deserts’.

Overall, the staff, service, food and restaurant was excellent and we felt very welcome.

This was pre-theatre dining. It was busy when we arrived and it got busier. The tables were close together, so it was a cosy affair. My wife had fish and chips, and I had fish soup and steak frites. The food was very nice and both of us presented clean plates. We each had a French 75 as an aperitif, although my wife thought the ones I make were better (I disagreed). Nice dessert options, including liquid desserts (digestifs). I am planning to return with friends in August.

Our first visit and definitely the best French brasserie food we have experienced in our forty plus years living in London.

Background music a little intrusive but this is a brasserie after all.

We will certainly be back for more.

Lovely meal, very quick service. Special menu was hard to read due to font style, colour and room lighting I gave up and selected from the main menu. Would like to have seen more french style options such as escargot. Healthier option choice would have been good.

The £20 for starter, main and a Kir Royale is not worth the money for the food you get, there is a main menu that may be better though. Service was good.

The customer service was excellent from the minute we walked in at 9.45pm after a show. In my booking I had mentioned that it was my partners birthday the next day so the evening was a treat but I hadn't actually expected anything. It was a real surprise to be given complimentary glasses of prosecco as we chose our meals! We had the 50% off deal which for a starter and main course was excellent value. It made us feel we'd all had a great start to the weekend in Covent Garden at a reasonsble price. The food was tasty and portion sizes good.
Thank you to all the lovely staff who looked after us.

It is a while since I have been here, but every bit as good as I remeber. We had a lovely waitress, the food was good, I had onion soup and seafood risotto- both excellent and warming on a cold London day. We also had an offer which gave us 50% off the food bill. I definitely recommend this place.

A pleasure , as always, I have had lunch here 3-4 times a year for the last 10 years or so, usually with an ancient friend. We were next to a noisy party, so they moved us to a much better table, without fuss or bother. I always have the Fish Soup and the Boeuf Bourgignon. Excellent as always, my friend thought there was too much salt in his Coq au Vin...he always does.
The House Wines are good and the Chabls by the glass is OK.
