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.

Really enjoyable evening with my family: husband and 2 teenagers (15 and 17). Myself and daughter are vegetarians and there was plenty of choice. Food all excellent and the service really lovely and proportionate: plenty of care without being over the top. Atmosphere lovely. Great value for money Would highly recommend and would definitely return. Thank you!

This was our first visit to the Boulevard Brasserie, as we were looking for somewhere new in the Covent Garden area. We were immediately impressed by the warm and welcoming atmosphere, with gentle background music. The very attentive yet inobtrusive service we received, particularly from our waiter Bogdan, couldn’t have been better.

We both went for traditional French fare, including fish soup as a starter, and coq au vin and boeuf bourgignon. The food was extremely tasty and the portions were generous, and we felt we had good value for money at around £45 each including Prosecco and coffee.

We very much enjoyed our first experience of the Boulevard and I’m sure we’ll be back.

An excellent restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden. Waiter was friendly and helpful. we were a party of six and all our food was delicious, including succulent fillet steak, sea bass and chicken. Starters and desserts were equally good. With a 50% discount on the food, this was very good value indeed.

We did the deal they had and I think that was good value. Upon arrival, the top floor was almost empty except for 2 tables and to our surprise they led us downstairs which was almost completely full without any explanation. There the noise level was loud and it was hot- I sweated through my meal. One waiter was not that nice but then we got a waitress for the second part of our meal who was nice. It was very close to our hotel but I wouldn't return.

We went to Boulevard Brasserie last night and it was fantastic. The food was excellent and the service was great. Our waitress Carla was really professional and efficient.

I'd highly recommend this restaurant for it's high quality food, service and ambience. I wouldn't say it was "quiet" but at least last night there was a relaxed and civil (not loud) atmosphere even though the restaurant was quite busy with a lot of patrons.

I'd recommend a walk around the local area after dinner and you will spot some other amazing places for your next dinner date.

Very accommodating with request for seating, charming and efficient service. Crab and avocado tian was delicious. Unfortunately the duck was dry and very overcooked, inedible. It was replaced by lamb, which was much better though not as good as expected. My companion had the chocolate cake that was delicious.

Food was good value for money although I was a little disappointed that when I asked for spinach (which was listed with other dishes) was told that they didn’t do this. Overall a good visit.
