I discovered Boulevard Brasserie quite by accident 6 months ago , this time I decided to book in advance, as I was attending the Ballet at the Royal Opera House,
I cannot get over how lovely this place is, it some how manages to be elegant and comfy at the same time... food is beautiful Fabiana our hostess was a sensational and hysterical... excellent!

We were not told about the bottomless Afternoon tea. When booking online it doesn’t mention it. When we realised other people were having bottomless we asked about but were told you have to say when you book. Not sure how we could have done this as we didn’t know about it. Asked for the service charge to be taken off the bill as we felt they could have told us, and not once did they ask if we would like another drink or everything was ok. When I asked for it to be removed I was then questioned a lot by the waitress, then the manager also came over and quizzed us. Even after explaining why I wanted it removed she continued to question me. The cakes were below average, it’s one of the cheaper afternoon teas and you definitely get what you pay for.

The food was very nice. We booked 50% promotion so the value was amazing. Everything went well apart from being charged for someone else’s wine which was corrected as soon as we pointed out

We had a wonderful lunch and catch up on Friday. The mussels and the fishcake courses were excellent. The ice-cream and sorbets we had for dessert were delicious. We both enjoyed Kir Royales and mint tea afterwards. The staff were attentive and helpful. When a noisy party came along they moved us swiftly to a quieter area. I've been to this brasserie many times and will definitely return soon.

We enjoyed our meal, the staff were really pleasant. I have to say even with the amazing 50% discount it seem seem expensive. We had a couple of side dishes and bread which perhaps in a French restaurant might have been complimentary. I would go again but be careful to look at the prices

The food and service were great! It was a busy Saturday evening but the noise level did spoil our enjoyment a bit as we could not hear friends' conversation very clearly.
We had a special offer so the cost of the meal was good with 3 courses including wine at about £30 a head . We would eat there again.

They gave us the table we had requested by the window and the waiter was very attentive. The food was excellent and they even brought along a birthday candle as well as a free bottle of prosecco to celebrate my birthday. My friends had never been before and were very impressed. We will certainly visit again. The food feels genuinely French. The pork chops were huge!

Perfectly acceptable generic French-style brasserie, though both the menu and décor have a rather unimaginative/formulaic feel about them. Service polite but rather mechanical and uninterested. Price-quality ratio would be mediocre at full price, but decent value with 50%-off-food offer.

Our waitress was really lovely and the food was delicious. The only niggle is the portions were on the smallish side. The salmon was cooked to perfection but for that price, should've come with more veg as the asparagus, although delicious, wasn't filling. But clean plates all round proved the food was great!

The set menu was very nice and was what was used by two of us. What was disappointing was that there was additional cost for three of the items chosen. Why put together a two and three course set menu with a set price to then add additional charges to it - makes no sense - should have chosen from the a la carte menu.
Other than that had a very pleasant lunch.

The food is outstanding! Haven’t had such good French for long time. The service is exceptional.
The only problem is OpenTable. It states the “50% food offer” on many restaurant booking in the app. I have tried 2 restaurants so far. Neither of they actually offer this discount. I would rather open table just be honest about the offers. Not list a fake one.

The restaurant got 4 starts in pentacle but for us it was between 3-4. The Coq au Van was a lot of sauce but the chicken was two drums and a thigh and chewy, not tender. My wife's breaded fried breast was okay but also chewy

Lucy and the rest of the staff were very welcoming, provided everything we needed and were very professional. I always get “my” table in the bar area by the window where it is quieter. For me and my friends (mostly in our 60’s and 70’s) it is essential that the noise level is kept low. Please ensure that the music is quiet, otherwise everyone starts shouting to make themselves heard. I have recommended Boulevard Brasserie to lots of my friends.

Food was wonderful. The negatives were that we were told 50% off food but the bill did not show this - after asking the bill was adjusted . The biggest negative was that one of the waitresses had terrible body odour. As she walked past our table about 20 times, it was horrible as the smell was overpowering. Surely your management must be aware of this problem? Several people served us - different one for drinks, starters, coffee etc and all very efficient and polite, but the smell from one was so bad. Someone really does need to discuss personal hygiene with her. As I said the food was wonderful - we both had the fillet steak and as good as I have ever had. Thank you.

I love this restaurant. Food was lovely, we had a special deal-50% off food if you have 2 courses from the â la carte menu. We shared the chicken pate with toast and garnish, we both had fish and chips and we shared a pudding which was 3 balls of ice-cream, pistachio & cinnamon, vanilla and strawberry. It was all lovely. We have been served by the same waitress in the past, and she was there again-tall black woman with a lovely smile and she was excellent again! We'll definitely be back again. Julie and Nigel.

Must return! Lovely ambiance, attentive polite and friendly staff. Great food choices, not too many to confuse and what they have they do very well- delicious! Duck was amazing. Excellent fizz, not too sweet and just right with food. We were blown away with this place, and considering it is in tourist central part of London.
