In a quaint setting 50 yards from the Piazza, Boulevard Brasserie Covent Garden offers uncomplicated French cuisine in an intimate setting. Set over 3 floors with bistro-style decor, there’s also a chic wine bar housed in the cosy basement.

A welcome retreat from the activity of Covent Garden, Boulevard Brasserie London offers simple cooking, using well-sourced ingredients. From the a la carte menu, there are classics like baked brie and cranberry pastry, rocket and Roquefort risotto, and boeuf bourguignon.

Boulevard Brasserie offers a range of delicious French wines and champagne to perfectly complement the wide range of dishes. For those left wanting more, the dessert menu’s tantalising flavours range from lemon and ginger cheesecake to chocolate tart with Cointreau mousse.

Bringing simple French favourites to the heart of London Covent Garden’s Boulevard Brasserie is next to the Theatre Royal, and Covent Garden Tube Station is just a 4-minute walk away.

    I ate far too much and added extra glasses of wine to the deal purchased. The drinks were put into the glasses away from the table and then brought to the table a less than acceptable service mistake. I asked for a spoon to eat the puy lentil and duck casserole and all they could come up with was a soup spoon. the food was tasty and nutritious if not a very inspiring limited bookatable menu but the soup and main course was delicious and filling.

    A buzzy vibe and comfortable welcoming place to dine after the theatre. Food was good and staff very friendly with good service. We did the 3 courses for £22.50 deal which offered a choice of 5 or 6 dishes for each course. Food was unfussy and good value, perfect for a quick late supper.

    Booked an offer for £22.50 for 3 courses for 7 of us and a glass of prosecco; offer was only valid for 6 and 1 person who was gluten free for the a la carte; I did mention this at the time of booking and also on the phone to re-confirm. At the restaurant all of our party arrived separately but once we had all arrived it look an hour from being seated about 6pm until our started had arrived. Main course was fine, though my steak which I had asked for medium was cooked well done, the rest of the party had ordered sea basses and salmon, which I am told was delicious, we had crème brulees for dessert which were delicious. Then we thought we would order coffee, that was until our waiter arrived and looked at his watch and said we didn't have time as he had people waiting for the table !!! Our waiter then went to check with his manager if we could have coffee, though in the meantime we did order the coffees from one of his colleagues, this promptly came and our waiter came back to apologise and said it was fine for us to have coffee! Gee thanks for that!

    I then asked for the bill and asked for the service charge to be removed, as I intended to leave a cash tip, our same waiter asked me had I intended to remove the service charge!

    The 'overall' dining experience was marred somewhat by the urge to get our party to hurry up and leave; my sister who was the gluten free did not have a starter nor dessert as there were not sufficient options available and incidentally when mentioned no effort was made to assist us. I rarely write reviews about restaurants and service, especially as I am in the industry myself, however on this occasion I felt I had to say something!

    We went to boulevard brasserie before we went to a show so ate early. It was very busy but the service was quick and friendly. The food was very good - not fancy at all but just right for the occasion. I had smoked salmon starter with lentils and my partner had the Brie in FILO pastry, both were well presented and tasty. We both had steak for mains which was well cooked - and then creme brûlée for dessert which was lovely. We were welcomed with a glass of kir royale which was all part of the very reasonable price. The additional drinks we had were not over expensive so our final bill for a 3 course meal in London was very acceptable. We would definitely go again.

    Booked table, got phone call in the morning to confirm booking. Had the set menu, straight in to our table, drinks served quickly, so was the food all done within 90 mins. Plus waiter heard me mention that it was my wife's birthday and surprised her by popping a candle into her desert.

    Hospitable reception...excellent cuisine...reasonably priced.

    This restaurant, situated in Covent garden perfectly located for both theatre trips and sightseeing. The ambience of the restaurant, the excellent 3 courses and the attentive (but not overly so) staff made our lunchtime visit highly enjoyable. We would certainly go again!
