What a delightful place! It was our first time at this lovely restaurant and we've already recommended it to friends. We were early for our table booking so we had drinks on a table outside first before being shown to our table inside the restaurant t 6pm for a post theatre matinee dinner treat. The menu had many classic French dishes - all favourites of ours so it was hard to choose! In the end we enjoyed a starter of brie in filo pastry, then chateaubriands - cooked perfectly to our taste - with potato dauphinoise and french beans, then a beautiful creme brûlée to finish. The service was impeccable and the ambience was very much that of a french bistro diner, enhanced by 'bistro-style' decor inside. Definitely one to visit again!

Very welcoming, impeccable service, charming..everyone! Seating comfortable with adequate table space. The food arrived well timed, hot and delicious. The water & wine accompanied the food well. The ambience was a trifle noisy at times, due to the presence of 3 children, but was not sufficient to spoil the atmosphere! The value for a very enjoyable experience was unusually generous. We would certainly return! For a quieter time, request the first floor dining area.

The tables are far too close together. It felt like we were all at one table. The food was very good and the service was ok, the waitress was very overstretched.

Really amazing meal. We chose two courses each from the set menu and they were absolutely delicious.

It didn’t feel like you had a designated waiter, instead whoever was free or who’s eye you could catch would come and take your order. Absolutely fine if you’re there for a relaxed evening but we had chosen the spot before a show and it got a little tight.

Would still absolutely recommend though as the staff were very friendly, the food was amazing, and they offer a set menu which is good value.

This is a real find in the heart of theatre district and will be our first choice for a pre-show meal in future. The staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient making sure we were served in time for us to get to our show. The quality of the food was excellent and despite being in the centre of London the prices were very reasonable.

Restaurant unable to find our reservations but 50% off food deal still honoured. Service amazing - really made to feel welcome. They asked if we pre-theatre and made sure service was quick. Food excellent - Fried Brie, onion soup, sea bass, chicken Milanese. It full price was paid it would not have been great value but on the 50% it was excellent.

Service was good

Food was ok - beef in beef bourgignon was a bit tough and potato dauphinois had a very funny flavour

With 50% discount on food the value was ok but wouldn’t have wanted to pay full price

We ALWAYS go to Boulevard Brasserie when we go to London The food and service is always good and good value for money. We went there last night and it was excellent. Our waitress Elge was both charming and efficient. I wish we lived nearer to London so we could go there more often. We always recommend BB to friends and many have been there on our recommendation .

We chose from the set menu (£16 for 2 courses). Beef bourguignon/mash was great, and salmon salad also very good. Staff were very professional and approachable. We'd met up with friends and weren't rushed out at all.

What a lovely lunch, we could have been in Paris! Very friendly service and offered a window table as requested. The food was fabulous and authentically French. Very generous portions and well presented. Lovely atmosphere with gentle jazz in background. Will definately book here again and again. Recommended for families, friends and couples.

Just brilliant.
Had booked in at Zedel but they couldn’t accommodate some changes to our booking so I booked here instead.
Obviously it doesn’t have the wow factor of Zedel, but it made up for that with the food and ambiance.
