Visited this restaurant for lunch the other day after having heard of the famous burger with fois gras. The restaurant has a little bit clystophobic feeling since it's ceiling is a bit low. The tables are not the more comfortable you can get but for London they are ok. The food: my soup was excellent, the salad "Lyonnaise" was nothing... More

Because I had such a wonderful dining experience at Bar Boulud with friends, I wanted to go back the next time I was in London, but this time on business. Since we were more than 8 people in our group we had to be seated in the private dining room, which totally lacked the atmosphere and the ambiance of the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed spending a few hours here with family on a Saturday lunchtime. A varied menu to suit all tastes and wallets. The burgers may be expensive as burgers go but apparently acted as excellent hangover cures when combined with a Bloody Mary for the younger members of our party. On the Bouchon menu 2 (very tasty) courses for £17... More

Merguez starter, delicious. Only had a burger, but, it was the best burger I have ever had! Tasty and cooked to perfection. Good selection of wines.

The food is outstandingly good - the atmosphere lively and welcoming - the staff on top of their game and suitably attentive, the wine list wonderful with some interesting surprises - the decor and lighting perfect - all in all a wonderful experience. Restaurants like this enhance the evening - not outrageously expensive.

I think that Bar Boulud has a great vibrant scene. We sat at the bar and enjoyed drinks and appetizers. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. It is expensive, but most good restaurants in London are pricey.

We ate at both the Mandarin's restaurants during my most recent trip to London. While the Heston Blumenthal establishment was easily a cut above, it was also £100 more expensive for a dinner for two. We both enjoyed our 3-course meals at Bar Boulud. We really loved the contemporary but sophisticated atmosphere. The staff were all friendly and smiles and... More

A lunch for a special occasion just before xmas. Very enjoyable meal & decent sized portions, particularly enjoyed the escargots starter. Quite pricey as to be expected in the location but no complaints about the food we were served.

Good selection of at least 10 draught beers and probably a further 10 in bottles. The wine list is also fairly extensive and a range of cocktails is available. The food, well, average is a kind description. Drop in for a drink after work but go elsewhere for diner.
