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 and our Weekend Breakfast 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.

This was the 2nd Christmas lunch with friends. Enjoyed the first time (last year). The waiter got off to a bad start by telling us (when we requested that a child's sausages should be well done) that he wasn't sure it could be done "because there's a big group upstairs". So apparently we weren't important enough. The mains were not all brought at the same time (although free coffees were offered to make up for this). There was a fixed 2 hour time for the table which we were told about in advance but the waiter started hanging around and making us uncomfortable with half an hour to go. Food was OK. All-in-all a very average experience. Will book Christmas lunch somewhere else next time.

Over all a good food. a couple of small criticism. My Palma ham was quite thick I found it difficult to cut with my the knife. I love mashed potato and I found the one with my meal slightly lumpy and not very creamy. My diner companions thoroughly enjoyed their food .
My daughter who has a nut allergy. the information provided by Boulevard Brassiere was very comprehensive. So much so she was able to make an informed decision without asking / telling the waiter she is allergic to nuts. Prices for wine was good not over the top . Staff friendly efficient..

Myself and a group of friends have come here for our Christmas Lunvh for the second year in a row. The food is tasty and the seasonal menu is good value for money. We weren’t rushed off the table which wasn’t lovely and the place has a great atmosphere. Our Brazilian waitress was just awesome and helped make the day even better!

Five of us went to celebrate my birthday. I did the booking and mentioned the fact that it was my birthday. Then, without any further reminding the restaurant kindly brought out prosecco for everyone and finished with a lit candle on a creme brulee (and we hadn't even ordered pudding). The ambiance is lovely, the food just like a French restaurant in France (proper fish soup etc). Two of our party are vegetarian and they were very happy with the veggie/vegan options. The best thing, though, was the service - which was really outstanding. It's not expensive either, so it's very good value for money. We'll definitely go back.

Been here before - it's a relaxed atmosphere with good french brasserie food, ideal for pre-theatre. Only reason for not giving five stars is that the wine is a bit over-priced - how about having some house wine carafes available?

We had a very pleasant evening at this establishment. The food was of good quality and the service very good.
The cost reasonable for the location.
On the whole, it would appear from all the plates that could be seen in close proximity, they went back to the kitchen clean.

We went for dinner before a show and ordered from the pre-theatre menu. The waiter was aware we were going to see a show so made sure we were finished in time to get to the theatre. The food was very good, and we would like to go back to try out some of the other dishes perhaps at not such a busy time of day.

Have been to Boulevard Brassiere several times over the years and we were very pleased to find the restaurant is still fantastic. We were in town to celebrate a birthday and after seeing the sights we received a very warm welcome along with a complementary glass of Prosecco which was a nice surprise! We choose the set menu and we’re not disappointed, fabulous meal which also included a Kia Royal so great value at £25 and all three courses were delicious and the staff were very happy, freindly and attentive. We have eaten at other restaurants which are far more expensive and Boulevard beats them on every level.

Very warm welcome in Covent Garden's Boulevard Brasserie - excellent service and appetising salad, parfait and trout. The ambience very "French" and appealing. However...the popularity of the lunch - time venue (perhaps influenced by the run - up to Christmas) meant that the closely - positioned tables soon filled up and made conversation hard work.

Place for OAP’s. Asked for a quite table gave me a loud one . Waitress was not unfriendly but just not that good, wasn’t trained properly at serving tables and was quite brash with how she gave the food, took the food etc. the manager didn’t seem very helpful either. Food was ok, if you take it with 50% discount then probably worth it but I wouldn’t go back
