Four of us went to the Boulevard Brasserie on Saturday. The menu is varied and has something for all tastes. The service was friendly and helpful. Our food was served promptly and was very tasty. The restaurant is intimate and romantic although a bit more space between tables would be better. I would highly recommend this restaurant and would definitely... More

This wonderful French brasserie had accommodating, friendly staff and amazing food! I had a delicious butternut squash risotto and the other members in my party had the coq au vin and a goats cheese, spiced pear and walnut salad. Located in a nice area of London for meeting up with friends and family. Will be back soon, many thanks!

Our group consisted of four people one of whom took a fancy to this restaurant as we were looking for somewhere to eat before the theatre. It was a very good choice as we had a great dining experience and made very welcome as soon as we went inside. All the staff are very friendly and we were looked after... More

Ideally placed for the Royal Opera House (diagonally opposite the front entrance). Booked the three course menu with kir royale (delicious) for £22.50 per person through Open Table. Warm welcome, very polite staff, seated upstairs (recommend requesting a downstairs table if you have mobility issues). Ladies loos are also located on the ground floor. Glad we booked a 5pm start...

Lovely atmosphere, tasty food, a nice place to complement a night at the theatre. Well worth a visit, especially with a 50% discount which can be obtained from some websites.

Went here for a luvly meal before going on to the theatre. The food was just right as done in France. The service was spot on - attentive and relaxed and got us out in plenty of time to get to the theatre. Would go there again.

Went for a pre theatre meal and wasn't disappointed. The service was friendly and prompt without feeling rushed. The food was very good with good portion size and complimented by a decent wine list. I particularly liked the option of a half bottle of wine when there's only two of you. All in all a very good venue for a... More

Went here based on restaurant reviews. We wanted to dine out in a restaurant, not just 'eat and run' to the theatre. The staff were pleasant, no issues here but if you are looking for a really lovely eating experience, then I'd suggest somewhere else. The place is tired looking, and if you look up to the ceilings and higher... More
