Great location, easy to get a table, nicely prepared French brasserie food (if a bit unimaginative - but I'm guessing the clientele don't want imaginative- if they did, they'd be upstairs at Heston's place), so lots going for it, and we;ve been back a few times when we need a last minute table, but for, me, lacking a certain sparkle...

I went here with a friend having heard good things about the burgers. We arrived and had a drink at the bar first. The interior of the restaurant is nicely designed, and the front of house staff were professional and efficient. We had a nice drink and were looking forward to the much anticipated main event. What a disappointment. I... More

For good Brasserie French food this is among the best, under the Buloud name for quality. Gteat charcuterie food and also nicely prepared French classics such as Escargot. Impressive bar atmosphere with excellent service, and not really expensive.

Simply the best burger I have ever had and have been chasing it for a while! Service was good and overall it was reasonably priced considering the location.

A friend took us to Bar Boulud for dinner on our arrival in London. Although the food was fine, nothing outstanding, the service was a disaster! It was totally chaotic and three of us had finished our main courses before my husband got his cheeseburger. A cheeseburger, not being a particularly complex dish, we were at a loss for words....

This is a little gem in London. It has friendly staff, great cocktails and always a great atmosphere. However, the burgers take it to an altogether higher level. I've tried burgers at many food places all over the world and for me, these top everything out there. I have subsequently visited with many friends and each has walked away with... More

my husband booked a table here for our anniversary. all in all everything was lovely. fantastic attentive service throughout. I had the piggie burger which both my husband and I agreed was the best burger either of us has ever had. my husband said the tunisian sausage was very nice but nothing amazing and not a very generous portion.
