This bar looks great - shiny, trendy, inviting. Service is patchy though, and was a little hit and miss. There wasn't a huge amount of appetising menu items for vegetarians, though meat eaters are well served. Overall it felt a little bit "Emperor's New Clothes" and was definitely lacking that certain magic that can make a venue special, and the... More

I really loved the decoration and the atmosphere, like a bar, but with high standard. The food is really good, maybe too expensive for what we have, but still, very good.

A few friends recommended this spot as 'my favourite burger in London'. I am pleased to inform it did not disappoint - asked for medium rare on my "bb burger" ( their signature burger topped with foie gras, tomato confit & truffle, frisée lettuce and onion seed brioche bun), the meat was perfectly cooked and very flavourful. My husband ordered... More

We were in a hurry and found the service sympathetic to our needs with excellent food (muscles with coriander, coconut ,ginger and green chilli for example) with the set menu option giving good value . The 'head waiter' who kept an eye on us was superb.

The food was great and although it a well known chef restaurant, the prices are totally affordable. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere also.

A disappointing evening at Bar Boulud after it had been given so much hype. The food was excellent but I am afraid the service was very slow and amateurish. There were five of us and the first drinks took ages to appear. We ordered white wine with the starter, again slow to arrive and were halfway through our main course... More

I've been to Bar Boulud a few times now and have always had a great time. The food and service is perfect, the restaurant itself is located in the Mandarin Oriental but also has it's own entrance, the atmosphere is always buzzing and has been full to capacity on every visit. Food highlights are the fresh bread, homemade sausages, fish... More

Which is actually a misleading title because I'm just describing geography, not how much I enjoyed the restaurant. I was invited for a dinner here, staff very attentive and pseudo-friendly (it really depended on who you got - very amicable maitre d'). They make a mean Old Fashioned at the bar, so, points there. I had the prawns to start,... More

I dined there on a Sunday lunch. The restaurant was busy and i was quite impressed at how the waiters managed to keep the service up to great standards. We started with the cold sharing platter which was good ranging from salami to pig's cheek. Our table ordered 3 set menu's which was satisfactory for the price we paid £19... More
