Description: Boulevard Brasserie, one of Covent Garden's iconic fixtures, situated on the Opera Quarter on Wellington Street, has recently completed a refurbishment. A typical French brasserie with a menu featuring classic, uncomplicated French cuisine to include bouef bourguignon, moules mariniere, steak frites and delicious tartines. Set over two floors, it is a bustling place where you can comfortably dine on your own, with friends and family or enjoy a more convivial occasion in a larger group. Simple cooking with good ingredients in an informal atmosphere - a French brasserie at its most authentic. A new feature to Boulevard Brasserie is the Boulevard Cellars - a cosy and intimate wine bar offering a wide range of delicious regional French wines and Champagne, a good selection French cheeses and charcuterie plates to complement all tastes.

It was good to find a restaurant serving good food in the heart of tourist London. The restaurant was inviting and everything I ordered was well served, well-cooked and tasty. I had chosen a special offer with a complimentary cocktail but did order extras. The Service was pleasant and attentive. The prices are not for those on a budget but... More

Ideally placed for theatreland and service well geared to pre or post show dining. Good menu choices - we had sea bass and tuna steak, both very good size portions, superbly cooked. We used the 2 for 1 offer from Network Rail, so extra good value too.

We visited here before going to see a show. The food was of a good quality and the waitress acknowledged that we were attending the theatre and reassured us that we had plenty of time to relax before we had to leave. The service wasn't the best we have ever had and felt that when our food order was wrong... More

Visited with lunch party of eight and had the £22.50 offer of 3 courses plus kir royal. The staff were friendly and the service sufficiently attentive. I had the sea bass fillet and I was surprised by the portion size - I was expecting a really small fillet as it was a lunch offer in an expensive area (just off... More

Me and my husband with 2 friends went to the restaurant on a Sunday night. We got great offer - 50% off of all dishes on the menu exclude steak, drinks and service fee. I ordered whole tiger prawns which was a bit oily. My husband's duck confit was the best! The Quinoa salad was big portion and very tasty.... More

I came to this restaurant with the 3 courses plus champagne cocktail for 22.50 - great deal. Would definitely recommend, very good value for money. Our waitress made quite a few mistake but I think she was on training and plus she was very very nice so it was completely fine. Food was very good and menu had a nice... More

Food was very good, staff very attentive, prices were reasonable just a nice way to start the evening off. I would advise you to book as it gets very busy. Easy to find and when you arrive let them know you are going to a show and they will make sure you have ample time to get to it. There... More

We visited this restaurant last night and although we did not have a table booked a very efficient young lady ensured us we would be attended to. We had a drink at the bar served by a very friendly bar man and within 10 minutes we were shown to a table. The buzz was fantastic, the staff brilliant and the... More

The Boulevard was quiet when I called for Lunch recently so no problem getting seated by the Window. My choice of starter, Foie gras & chicken liver parfait was nice and a good quantity. My main choice, Boeuf Bourguignon & Mash was also a large portion but I would have liked more mash to soak up the Gravy. Service from... More

I went here for a mid-morning breakfast and wasn't expecting much. It's in the heart of Covent Garden so I thought the prices would be exorbitant and the food not-so-good. But I was very surprised to find that the opposite was true (sort of!). When I walked in there was only one other person there. The waiter was very friendly... More
