We went for a romantic meal, the food was amazing. Everything was prepared to perfection and it had a nice atmosphere. The service was generally good, however the didn't notice the small things, like when our wine needed topping up. For the cost of the meal, I would have expected better. It was pricey and definately a treat, but I... More

We came here for dinner. It's a great dinner venue. The dim lighting and the live band really added to the atmosphere. The food was outstanding, particularly the smoked duck and steak. I had the rib steak but the fillet looked super. However, what really made the night was the top class service. From pre dinner drinks in the bar,... More

We ate here on an opentable deal, glass of Prosecco, chateaubriand and lobster. Restaurant is lovely, quirky and got lots of character. Food was very very high quality, great portions, good wine list, staff were very friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend and return. Thank you Boisdale!

This place was quite nice. It took me some time to find the place because it was in between two buildings but once I entered, it was a hidden gem. Food was great.

We went as a party of four, for a business lunch. It was my first time at Boisdale's and I look forward to returning again when I'm in the city. The meals were excellent as was the service, the menu is extensive with a few rarer dishes that are not served everywhere. People seem obsessed with the steak it looked... More

Went there one evening after work with the wife. The barperson was very attentive and professional and made a great gin and tonic. Went to the restaurant which was a little dark , but was not put off by this, as I can imagine when the band is playing adds to the atmosphere. Food was great and service excellent and... More

It is what it is. Okay steaks and service. Pricey - but as most people are eating on expenses you can see why. Service okay but jazz piano is very load - suggest you don't sit too near it if you want to chat!

Went to Boisdale one evening with friends. Food to die for. Who would have thought that steak and lobster are such a fantastic combination. Service is professional yet very accommodating. There's also a piano player who is very good, quietly and beautifully entertaining the diners. Will most certainly go again. Suitable for couples, meeting friends and not too formal business... More
