Unfortunately it our reservations for dinner between shows in the West End got messed up and as I caught the error less than a week before a Saturday evening during the holidays, I was quite limited with places to choose from. While the food wasn't BAD, it was hardly inspirational with zero WOW factor to it. The preparation and presentation... More

I had booked a table for this restaurant as we wanted somewhere well recommended that was near to Covent Garden. The Boulevard ticked both boxes. We had a great table by the window and waiting staff were very friendly and attentive. We all opted for choices from the 'theatre menu' and generally were quite pleased with our choices. The Creme...

One of the most deliciously memorable dinners I've had in any restaurant world-wide. The meat was cooked to perfection for both my friend who likes "medium-well done" and I, who like "medium rare." Perfect potatoes and vegetables, all piping hot in the skillet of savory juices. Asked our solicitous waiter for bread/baguette to soak up those juices. Over-tipped our French... More

Firstly, to the staff of Boulevard Brasserie, I want to say a thank-you, it was the little touches and the fact that details I mentioned when booking were taken into account that made the afternoon perfect. I had booked the afternoon tea with free flowing prosecco deal on bookatable, and cannot express enough just how good the service was. The... More

I booked a table for 5 here for my mums birthday. The staff were friendly, food amazing and reasonably priced. We all ordered different food options and they were all great. They even brought out a piece of cake with a candle (unplanned by me) free of charge. I cannot fault anything. Credit where credit's due. Am definately going back... More

We came across Boulevard whilst exploring the Covent Garden area. We had a refreshing cup of tea and shared the lovely warm coconut and poppy seed cake with white chocolate sauce and raspberry compote. A perfect 'pick me up'. We enjoyed it so much we went in again the next day! The manageress was very friendly. We would return here... More

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.
