Sister restaurant to the popular New York outpost, Bar Boulud London at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is the heart of Knightsbridge. The seasonal bistro menu includes an impressive selection of house-made terrines & pâtés, as well as signature burgers, adding an American touch to this French inflected bistro.
Thank You to the whole team at Bar Boulud. Super friendly, welcoming & professional. From the moment we walked in we where well looked after, drinks topped up & service was AMAZING! Special shout out to Patrick who made our evening very special.
Thank you for the dessert plate & the amazing food and service.
Will be back!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Delicious food tho choice of Main course type of food seems ltd eg no sourdough bread on menu.
Always on point! Consistently good for many years!
Really enjoyed the burger. One of the best I’ve had
Delicious food and excellent service, as usual.
I keep returning for the gracious hospitality (sommelier from Bari and greeters at the host stand were wonderful and personalised our experience this time) and for the spotless service and delicious food. Really loved Crab Salad and Beef Rossini!
Boulud is a safe bet if you need to have a bite in the Kengsington neighborhood, it's a nice french bistro at the Manadrin with good quality ingredients and nice professional staff..
I had the veal tartar, very good cut au couteau wich does not crush the meat and leave a clean feel when one eat these micro cubes. I have to say that each time I have black truffle at any Boulud restaurant, in NY , London, or Baltimore, it is tasteless and without the typical perfume, it is always odorless. This for me is a major inconvenient. A real Tuber Melanospurum should fill the room with its smell, if it does not, I suspect it just is not the real one, but a pale imitation from China or somewhere else than Perigord.
If you want real truffle in London go to Helene Darose, or a two star Michelin...
The pintade fermiere was delicious, very simply presented, a bit too much potatoes, but it was well prepared and coocked.
The only things I did not like this time was the special negroni, that is a sweet syrupy american kids decoction, and the fondant au chocolat, a small lava cake identical to any one see in several other restaurants, same taste and aspect, I suspect it is industrialy prepared and shipped world wide frozen to anybody, but I cant prove it. The difference with this one is that it fell on my stomach like a brick and I was I'll for the rest of the day. The tacky embience music match the rich and tacky patrons, probably attracted by the world famous temple of expensive vulgarity nearby: Harrods.
Great first time.
Fabulous meal. Very attentive service. Great atmosphere.
Overall excellent my only suggestion would be to maybe offer another vegetarian option to the veg burger already on the menu (which is delicious) ?
Excellent menu choice, superb service and relaxing environment.
Fabulous 3 course set lunch, just the perfect size for lunch nothing too heavy. Great service and value for money
Excellent service and very kind and attentive staff! Totally recommend!
Really relaxing ambience, great wine list and delicious food, especially octopus! It was my second visit in a short period of time, code up makes it affordable for industry people. Really nice and personal manner of service.
Lovely food, good and polite service from waiter, wine waiter gave good recommendations for wine very knowledgable, nice setting, very clean. Could not fault, would definitely go again.
5* as always and the best burgers in town! Fantastc service from each and every member of the team. Thank you.
Really disappointed in our whole experience. Our neighbours sat there watching videos on their phones with speakers on the whole meal. Not the soundtrack you want to your romantic meal. The staff did nothing so I went and asked if there was any policy on this as it shouldn’t be up to me to ask them to turn the volume down. All I was offered was the opportunity for me to move table. I understand that people are more Reliant on phones for entertainment these days but surely a good restaurant doesn’t allow phones to compromise other diners experience.
We go there a lot this time the food was disappointing and wouldn’t recommend but usually it’s lovely
Excellent service and very good food. One of our favourites!
Meal booked for 10, arrived at 9:45 after having a drink in Mandarin Bar and was shown to the front desk. Was told to have a drink at the bar, whilst the table was prepared. At 10:10 I approached the desk to ask if they had forgotten about me. I watched as a table was made up near the entrance and was then shown my table. Waited an age for service. Can’t fault the food, Dover sole for main was superb. After I reserved the meal on open table it said someone would be in touch to secure the booking and nobody did. In hindsight, I should have followed it up as I don’t think the booking was made. Also no count down or anything for New Year, so it was a bit flat.
We went for New Years eve dinner and were given a table at the far back (in the kitchen casual dining area) basically not the main restaurant.
When queried about being seated in this casual area, we were told the main restaurant was booked out, however they then offered to serve us dessert in the main restaurant.
Very disappointing first impression.
Our family visiting London thoroughly enjoyed our New Years evening at your restaurant. Thank you for a memorable time
A little disappointed with this visit ( we are regulars). It is best to get a table in the front of restaurant where there is more room and less noise.
Food was delicious. Service by waitress at first was very poor . The manager stepped in and the service was excellent by him. It would have been nice to have had some sort of holiday decorations for New Year’s Eve . Loved the sea bass and the autumn salad
Used to be a frequent visitor but hadn't been for a while. However, had a very enjoyable meal and shall be returning - the service was to be commended.
35th Wedding Anniversary
It was very busy when we went and the staff had to be asked several times to bring drinks and take our order. The burger was delicious but the chips were incredibly salty and not overly hot.
Had a very nice birthday meal for my son, food was very nice and staff very polite and friendly. A great place to visit for food and drink after shopping 😊
It was Christmas dinner. We were welcomed by the friendliest hostess, Maria. The food, wine and overall experience were wonderful.
Too expensive for the fare
We loved it, the food was delicious and the Team were wonderful. The wine list was great and we will be back!
I have had six Christmas Lunches at Bar Boulud. We arrived on time and the receptionist said she didn't have a reservation for us . We convinced her that we did including email confirmations. She asked to see the emails. Really ? Sure we always go to restaurants with emails. We were taken to a table at the back next to where the chefs were preparing the food . It was noisy and immediately two tables of screaming children were seated next to us.
The food was excellent. However , the rest of our experience was not elegant . The member of staff that organised the christmas crackers should be fired immediately. We paid £270 for a mediocre experience. The fact that we have been there six times for Christmas meant nothing. In fact they had never heard of us or could find our reservation.
Yet another great night out at Bar Boulud...nobody makes a better burger!! The experience was as usual flawless!! We visited on Christmas Eve and great start to the festive season! Thoroughly recommended!!
Great service and food at a very reasonable cost. We always come here when in London.
