Food was good value for money although I was a little disappointed that when I asked for spinach (which was listed with other dishes) was told that they didn’t do this. Overall a good visit.

My daughter and I were visiting London from Scotland. We used Meerkat meals to find nearby restaurants and chose this one. So glad we did, as welcome, service, ambience and food and drinks were all excellent. This was the best dining experience we had during our four day stay. The menu provided an excellent range and choice of dishes for each course. We will definitely return when we next visit London and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Great food and atmosphere. Only complaints are extra charges, such as for bread, which is usually free in a French restaurant. Also the offer came with a glass of Kir Royale which on the menu was £9 but we were only allowed to change it to a small glass of house white prices at £5.95. But apart from those niggles, great food and would go again.

Tad too noisy, but amazing food, good service and with the 50% off offer they were giving it was a bargain.
Try the onion soup to start it was divine.

My score would be higher if it hadn't been for the somewhat surly service we had from our waiter. A few times he kicked my dining partners chair. Space was right but he didn't acknowledge that this had any impact. He was terse in his communication. Short when we asked him anything. Just not the best serving experience.

My first choice restaurant when I visit Covent Garden is always Boulevard Brasserie. On this occasion I made use of the 50% off food deal. This meant we enjoyed an excellent chateaubriand which was lovely. We followed this with Eton mess and cinnamon ice cream which is my favourite. The staff were welcoming and friendly and service was excellent as always. We look forward to returning to our favourite restaurant soon.

I discovered Boulevard Brasserie quite by accident 6 months ago , this time I decided to book in advance, as I was attending the Ballet at the Royal Opera House,
I cannot get over how lovely this place is, it some how manages to be elegant and comfy at the same time... food is beautiful Fabiana our hostess was a sensational and hysterical... excellent!

We were not told about the bottomless Afternoon tea. When booking online it doesn’t mention it. When we realised other people were having bottomless we asked about but were told you have to say when you book. Not sure how we could have done this as we didn’t know about it. Asked for the service charge to be taken off the bill as we felt they could have told us, and not once did they ask if we would like another drink or everything was ok. When I asked for it to be removed I was then questioned a lot by the waitress, then the manager also came over and quizzed us. Even after explaining why I wanted it removed she continued to question me. The cakes were below average, it’s one of the cheaper afternoon teas and you definitely get what you pay for.

We had a wonderful lunch and catch up on Friday. The mussels and the fishcake courses were excellent. The ice-cream and sorbets we had for dessert were delicious. We both enjoyed Kir Royales and mint tea afterwards. The staff were attentive and helpful. When a noisy party came along they moved us swiftly to a quieter area. I've been to this brasserie many times and will definitely return soon.

We enjoyed our meal, the staff were really pleasant. I have to say even with the amazing 50% discount it seem seem expensive. We had a couple of side dishes and bread which perhaps in a French restaurant might have been complimentary. I would go again but be careful to look at the prices

The food and service were great! It was a busy Saturday evening but the noise level did spoil our enjoyment a bit as we could not hear friends' conversation very clearly.
We had a special offer so the cost of the meal was good with 3 courses including wine at about £30 a head . We would eat there again.

They gave us the table we had requested by the window and the waiter was very attentive. The food was excellent and they even brought along a birthday candle as well as a free bottle of prosecco to celebrate my birthday. My friends had never been before and were very impressed. We will certainly visit again. The food feels genuinely French. The pork chops were huge!

Perfectly acceptable generic French-style brasserie, though both the menu and décor have a rather unimaginative/formulaic feel about them. Service polite but rather mechanical and uninterested. Price-quality ratio would be mediocre at full price, but decent value with 50%-off-food offer.

Our waitress was really lovely and the food was delicious. The only niggle is the portions were on the smallish side. The salmon was cooked to perfection but for that price, should've come with more veg as the asparagus, although delicious, wasn't filling. But clean plates all round proved the food was great!

The set menu was very nice and was what was used by two of us. What was disappointing was that there was additional cost for three of the items chosen. Why put together a two and three course set menu with a set price to then add additional charges to it - makes no sense - should have chosen from the a la carte menu.
Other than that had a very pleasant lunch.

The food is outstanding! Haven’t had such good French for long time. The service is exceptional.
The only problem is OpenTable. It states the “50% food offer” on many restaurant booking in the app. I have tried 2 restaurants so far. Neither of they actually offer this discount. I would rather open table just be honest about the offers. Not list a fake one.

The restaurant got 4 starts in pentacle but for us it was between 3-4. The Coq au Van was a lot of sauce but the chicken was two drums and a thigh and chewy, not tender. My wife's breaded fried breast was okay but also chewy
