The French Chic brasserie in London

Outstanding charcuterie from France. Great meat. Service is professional. The atmosphere is a mix of London and New York with nice customers, happy to be here and to enjoy their evening.

We had a wonderful meal with friends at Bar Boulud, which is located in the basement of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge. It has a good vibe and a casual brasserie type menu with plenty of choices for all tastes. Excellent service from a French-accented waitstaff. I enjoyed a wonderful French onion soup followed by a very good burger,... More

We were not quite sure what to expect when heading for this upscale Knightsbridge bar restaurant , located in one of London's iconic venues , The Mandarin Oriental , but it was going to be one of those nights to remember. Petite friture ( deepfried squid and onionrings ) with mustardmayonnaise , paté en coûte and Morrocan style falafel with... More

We've been here twice. Once in January 2015 & July 2015. The place is a happening place, however, for the two times were there, seated at the bar, our order had been missed, hence, the service is slow. I'd give it 3 because they tried to make up for the mishaps. Maybe we will skip this in our next visit.

Really disappointed that yesterday when we went to Bar Boulud they applied a 12.5% service charge without our knowledge. We received out £178 bill and put down a card. Our waiter picked up the card, inserted it into the machine and handed it back on the "enter pin" screen. From this screen we were unable to see he had added... More

Somehow after the first taste of their burgers I got hooked straight away! It has been a good 3 or 4 years! Don't get me wrong they do have a great variety of dishes! From starters to desserts! Do try seafood platter it tastes so fresh almost feels like coming straight out of the sea. And if you are a... More

First of all and I think it is one of the most important things in every outlet, the service is excellent!!!! Everybody knows what are they serving, they explain everything to you and they are very quick even if they are busy!! I recommend the BB Burger of course, the charcuterie as an starter maybe and the madeleines for dessert!!... More

Booked a table for my birthday with my boyfriend and couldn't fault the experience. We had a lovely table, a conscientious and attentive waiter and had some excellent wine recommendation from the sommelier. The food was stunning, from the small board charcuterie to the burgers and the chicken and the spearmint ice cream and champagne to finish the evening off... More

Bar Boulud is a fun restaurant with good food and drinks and friendly and professional service. However, it doesn't knock your socks off. The menu isn't really French but good comfort food. We found it good enough to eat there twice. If you're looking for a comfortable place for good food and drinks in Knightsbridge, we recommend Bar Boulud in... More

This place tries to be first class however they miss the mark on a few key items. First the food was not good whatsoever. The veal was not cooked well, the mussels were off and tough with a foul taste, and the fries tasted frozen then fried. Service was questionable at best and did not reach the standards that we...

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
