Stumbled across this little gem after visiting a museum in the area. Ambience, food & service was excellent . The staff couldn't do enough for you . On the way out every member smiled and said goodbye which I thought was a lovely personal touch . Only thing to watch out for that we didn't notice was the service charge... More

We were a couple post matinee & had the Top Table three course + proscecco deal. The service was excellent. The food was certainly value for money & extra bread was provided to go with the pate starter at no extra charge. Nothing was too much trouble. Have been before & will go again.

We called in on the off chance before the theatre and the manager found us a table downstairs (which we were told we'd have to vacate by 8pm, which was fine). So far so good. We ordered fish and chips - which my husband says was a mistake in a French restaurant - and he was right! The fish was... More

Visited early evening after a show. Service very friendly and efficient. Good menu choice. Food well presented and very tasty. Beef Bourguignon delicious and very filling. All in all a very pleasant experience.

We had booked for a Pre Theatre meal and had allowed time to enjoy it. From the moment we arrived until we left service was superb we all had starters and even though it's a French restaurant the 3 of us all went for the seafood pasta , but each requesting different tweaks!! This was done with no problem. I... More

Cold Wednesday evening saved by visit here. Attractive comfortable atmosphere, pleasant efficient staff, great French based food and very reasonable cost with a special offer of 50% off most a la carte items! Will return.

The 'Boulevard' has become our eatery of choice in London. Classic French fare ( indeed, a surprising number of French diners whenever we're there which must say a lot!) and really good value. Pre-theatre menu is particularly good - but best to book ahead for that or you won't get a table.

8 of us had a pre-Christmas lunch at Boulevard Brasserie and were not disappointed. We had booked from their Christmas selection and chose the add-on whereby a welcome drink, wine, water and service were all included. What a delicious meal we had, served by friendly and professional people. Even when we all brought out our secret Santa presents and unwrapped... More

I took my mum here as we were going to see mamma Mia at the theatre. We booked for 530 so we would have plenty of time and I must say the food was excellent! Our deal was 3 courses and a glass of kir royale for £23 - fantastic value! We do quite a lot of pre theatre meals... More

We had the New Year's Eve set menu. The value, for central London/West End, was very good. The service and atmosphere were terrific. The food was overall good, although even for my salt-loving palate it was over-seasoned. The dishes were simply but elegantly presented, and (other than the salt issue), beautifully composed. The mussels with chorizo were cooked perfectly, though... More
