Boulevard Brasserie is one of Covent Garden’s most iconic restaurants fixtures. Serving heart-warming French classics since 1991, this grande dame of brasseries is the perfect place to soak up Covent Garden's unique cultural heritage. Set over three intimate floors with views of the Royal Opera House and décor reminiscent of 1920’s art nouveau Europe, Boulevard Brasserie echoes a true sense of Parisian style in London’s own Theatreland. The restaurant and café offers a selection of carefully curated menus founded on seasonality, freshness and flavour. Guests can choose from our popular Lunch and Pre-Theatre Menu, Light Lunches, Dinner Menu all serving Parisian classics such as French Onion Soup, Moules Marinière & frites, Croque Monsieur, Coq au vin, Crème Brûlée and our much-loved Traditional Afternoon Tea Menu.

The set menu with the Kir Royale included is good value at £23 for 3 courses, or £20 for 2, provided there is something you like from the 3/4 choices. With a couple of glasses of wine , £72 inc.service - we were happy with that for central London.

Deservedly popular french style bistro very close to the Covent Garden area, serving good food from a varied menu. Service was first rate. Ambience lovely as quite authentic 1930s style decor. Reasonable prices considering location and quality

Undercooked confit of duck. Was told that was the house standard. Don’t expect to find blood pooling on the meat. 2nd attempt had very little meat - I think they’d simply pulled off the under-cooked meat and covered it with a big flap of skin.
Very disappointing.

Really pleased with our experience at Boulevard Brasserie, we arrived early but were welcomed and shown to a table immediately. The meal was very good and the staff were very good with our nine year old granddaughter as well as the three adults in the group. We would certainly recommend the restaurant to friends and family.

As a group of 5 we felt a little ignored and 2 staff members came over to take our drinks order yet no one returned...

We can't complain about the food as the offer was so cheap. We were a little nosy by the end and the staff let us stay longer which was so nice of them!

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were not dissapointed at all! The mid week food offer was brilliant, food was brilliant and the staff were very attentive. There was a real buzz about the place even for a Wednesday evening, would highly recommend this place so go on, give it a go!

Enjoyable evening - we were 7 having a family reunion. Our party included a vegetarian and a vegan and there were several options for them. We all ordered from the typical French a la carte and everyone enjoyed their meal and were too full for dessert. The house wine was very good and reasonably priced. Excellent situation near Covent Garden. Would recommend

Superb food well cooked and presented and great service which was well paced, friendly and attentive. We took advantage of a birthday offer of a gratis bottle of prosecco and the server obligingly complied with my request not to render a chorus of happy birthday! She merely whispered it when serving dessert!!! Excellent!!!

I have visited BB Many times, over the years, and I’ve always enjoyed each visit. The welcome is always warm, the whole setting has a touch of old-world chic, with a delicious, well-priced menu - including the pre/post Theatre prix-fixe choice. The Service is splendid and the Birthday Trio were in fine voice, last Saturday night, when my candlelit crême-brûlée was brought to my table, at the end of a delicious meal (I had the Greek Salad and Pan-Fried Trout) A complimentary bottle of Prosecco was enjoyed by my guest, in part - I no longer drink alcohol - and I was extremely happy to leave the remaining half-bottle to the Trio 🥂 A delightful end to my 70th Birthday, after a great night at ‘Man of La Mancha’. Very Many Thanks 🙏💫🕊

Our waitress was surly from the start. We had to request the set menu which was reluctantly handed over. No smiles or interaction.
However the food was very good but I wish I had removed the discretionary service charge which was certainly not deserved.
I have eaten here several times before and always been very happy but this occasion has dampened my enthusiasm for another visit.

We booked this restaurant for my birthday as we had been previously for my husband’s birthday in December and had a great time. The booking process was easy and the restaurant telephoned the day before to confirm the booking.
We were greeted by friendly staff and shown to a lovely table by the open windows on the ground floor. There were 6 in our group and we had plenty of space around the table. The staff were very attentive throughout the meal and the courses were all delicious. We chose from the a la carte menu. There was a deal for 50% off food for a minimum of 2 courses which was great. The surprise was a birthday cake (provided by my daughter) with candles brought out by the staff who then sang happy birthday very enthusiastically along with other diners which was really special, thank you.
I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Somehow seems a bit more authentic than the standard French chains. Good value for money with the 50% off food offer.. If you are paying the full price I'd probably go elsewhere.

Grilled sea bass was excellent
Sunday roast was horrible— worse than shoe leather!
A little bit snippy wait staff.
Wasn’t the best meal- wasn’t the worst
The manager did send a Presco on the house to make up for a booking/ cancellation snafu.

I was so excited to book this restaurant and have leisurely lunch with a friend, it felt cramped inside and was busy. Our lunch was definitely not leisurely as the starters arrived seconds from placing the order, perhaps this place is better suited to pre theatre goers as everything felt precooked and just warmed through. The food was OK but just OK, nothing special. Left feeling disappointed.

Our table tried coq au vin and seafood linguine. Both were plentiful and delicious. Would recommend.
Could see others having afternoon tea which looked lovely.
Very attentive team in the restaurant who looked after us well.
Slightly pricey but no surprise considering the location.
