Set on the second floor of a Gotham City-style Art Deco building overlooking the fountains in Cabot Square, and with a view of the City of London skyline, Boisdale of Canary Wharf Restaurant is one of the most majestic premises to have opened in the area. It bears the distinctive Boisdale design of lacquer red and dark green walls, rich mahogany panelling, and an eclectic collection of classical and modern original artwork. The menu showcases classic British dishes and there’s a special emphasis on seafood, and on Scottish dishes like haggis; makes sense with the amazing range of Scotch on offer at the Whisky bar. Well worth stopping off and indulging in a Whisky flight – expert bartenders are on hand to guide you through the extensive range. There is also a ticketed live jazz show most evenings and Jools Holland is the Boisdale Patron of Music.

We really enjoyed our Jazz Sunday lunch, last weekend. We’d invited friends to join us and they too thought it was great. We had a lovely waiter, full of character and charm. All the food was delicious, starters: smoked salmon, calamari and prawn cocktails. Delicious! Followed by Roast pork and beef with all the trimmings. The wine flowed very well and the restaurant was very busy giving it a great buzzy atmosphere. The Jazz band was good and our table had nice views of the stage! All in all, a lovely Sunday in miserable weather! 🤗

Went in for the 50% off the a la carte menu. No fuss, they just told us that the caviar and lobster weren't included in this offer. Large selection to choose from. Food, drinks and service were fantastic. Planning on going again next week!

Very pleasant Sunday lunch. Food and service was very good. Music was enjoyable but overall it was a little to loud in the restaurant for our taste but it was very busy but this was to be expected. We would definitely go again to try the Christmas menu.

The food is always amazing for a Sunday roast. The service is efficient and friendly.
The jazz band playing in the background is a lovely touch.

My first visit and I was not disappointed. The steak was superb; flavoursome and tender and just the right size for lunch. The service was courteous and thoughtful from all those we cam into contact with. It was a very quiet lunchtime service which meant the ambience was not as it could have been but that is beyond the restaurant’s control. I would definitely come again and maybe enjoy one of the evening events

Booked for 7pm that had 50% off of a La carte menu. Good choice on menu. Party of four. We opted for chilli crab to start. One went for scottish smoked salmon- generous portions. For mains two went for Kimchi burger which is Korean. One cod loin and one haggis. All very good. Waiter professional and friendly. Topped wine up on a regular occasions which is sadly lacking in most restaurants now. Lovely table in middle of restaurant with views of the outside water fountains which were all lit up. Nice ambience. Will definitely return.
Tables are billed £15 per person after 9.30 when the music/show starts. Think if your eating and drinking this could be waived or reduced. They would have added £60.00 to bill but we decided not to stay. Service charge of 12.5% added to bill.
They have offers of 2 courses with show from 39.50 Rat Pack Xmas show sounds good. Also have separate bar downstairs which we used for pre-dinner drink

Sunday lunch with live Jazz soothing the nerves, what could be better? The food is ever reliable and there is a good wine list and an amazing whisky list. Sitting next to the window one can enjoy a great view towards the city. Nothing not to like!

Nice ambiance, the jazz band was ok though not worth £15/head. The food was so-so, my mushroom tagliatelle was on the salty side. Service was somewhat slow.
