Friendly and prompt service, attentive but not intrusive. We booked for an outdoor table, which as we expected meant increased noise, but not unbearably so. Traditional French menu (few veggie options), well cooked and attractively presented. Good value for money.

Excellent French Brasserie near Covent Garden. The food was delicious, especially the fish soup and the tiger prawns. The service was efficient, warm and friendly and the atmosphere generally was very welcoming. Cannot fault this lovely place and we shall definitely be back when we're next in London!

Great meal post boat party on the Thames. We arrived early but that was not a problem. Food was delicious and great value for money. Love dining here as the service is always on point. We didn’t bring a birthday cake and wasn’t going to make a fuss of it but the staff on their own initiative put a candle on the birthday boy’s dessert which was lovely as everyone in the restaurant sang happy birthday 🎁🎈🎂🍾🥂Thank you again for a lovely evening

Food excellent and service was very good. This would have been a 5 star rating if not for the £12 service charge added. There is nothing to advise customers of this at the point of booking.

Boulevard Brasserie is a lovely space. The service is very good - prompt and friendly. The food is also very good. I'm predominantly veggie so the menu is a bit limited for me - like most places. That said we always enjoy eating there.

Decided to sit outside as a very warm night and despite the traffic, very pleasant. Waitress was excellent, food was very good and the ambiance authentically French. We were entertained by a local gent who was very inebriated! But the staff dealt with situation admirably and kindly gave us complementary coffees. Bravo. We look forward to our next visit.

Amazing find. I am very happy that I went with my best friend to this restaurant, just for a last meal before she leaves for Italy. The fish soup is authentic and delicious, and we had the Coq Au Vin which featured half a chicken with onions, carrots, etc. It was such a big serving for the price we paid, totally worth it. We didn't have any room for desserts but I guess they would be delicious too. Totally recommend this restaurant for French food enthusiasts.

This was our second visit in 10 days. We were very impressed with our 1st visit so took our teenage sons with us as we knew they would enjoy the chateaubriand which was excellent. We had a lovely 1st floor table by the window. As with our previous visit everything was excellent from the attentive but not intrusive service to the quality of the food and cocktails. We really would struggle to find fault. I've given moderate for the noise level only due to the woman on the table next to us being on her phone talking not too quietly the whole time she was there, this was not the restaurants fault though. Will be back again very soon.

The second time I’ve visited and it was just as good, if not better, than the first.
Where else can you get 3 fabulous courses and a glass of fizz for £25 in the West End?!

A great restaurant with delicious, excellent value for money and friendly staff.
It's such a pleasure dining at this restaurant which is perfectly located for Covent Garden and the theatres.
The staff are always welcoming. They are knowledgeable of the menu and will ensure they accommodate your meal requirements.
The ambiance makes me feel like I'm in a Parisian restaurant. The restaurant is clean and well ventilated with good lighting.
The food is delicious. The Fillet steak, I ordered, was thick and cooked perfectly for me. The vegetarian Israeli couscous, that my friend ordered, was full of flavour. I always order the Tarte Tartin which is perfectly French!
The staff always wish you goodbye which I think is a perfect touch to end a great dining experience. Can't wait for my next visit!
