Bleeding Heart Bistro
Our popular terrace at our charming french Bistro situated in Bleeding Heart Yard is open from Spring to Autumn months and accommodates more than 30 people. Diners can enjoy traditional French dishes ranging from Lapin à la moutarde and Navarin of Organic Lamb.
Very nice outside on a warm London summer's evening
Already knew the place. Convenient for me and my colleague. Well prepared bistro dishes, and a good deal on lunch. Only slight niggle: service a bit insistent, but not a deal breaker. Will be back.
We had the set meal which was very good value. The cod of the main dish was cooked to perfection. perhaps the menu for the set meal could be changed more often.
There is a good atmosphere, real sense of buzz.
Met an old friend for a mid-week meal in the Bistro - lovely balance of good food, wine and excellent service. Less formal than the Restaurant, which is just as it should be!
Great bistro, really tasty food and professional service. The Cote de boeuf wasn’t the most tender but tasty none the less. Interesting wine list but pricey on high side.
we all enjoyed our meal in the Bistro - only one person had to go a la carte due to limited choices on the fixed menu. staff were friendly and efficient, nice atmosphere and good wine list
Un très bon bistrot authentique qui se démarque des chaînes de restaurants tant par la cuisine excellente et originale que par la décoration du lieu .Lerapport qualité prix est très bon et aussi le lieu n’est pas bruyant.
Je recommande sans hésiter.
Delicious food will definitely be back!
great bistro for a business lunch - good value set menus
Enjoyable - albeit dry - lunch at the Bleeding Heart Bistro. The fishcake was excellent as always and our guests enjoyed their cod.
Authentic Bistro atmosphere with a small menu but all the dishes were good - perfect for a mid-week supper with my daughter and boyfriend.
Always a pleasure service fantastic, food great very nice lunch as always
This is the best French Restaurant in the City of London.
Excellent on every level.
Great food, and pretty good value. Service varied, some good and some not so good.
Lovely meal - food was lovely, well priced, and service was attentive but not intrusive. Will definitely be returning!
Food was very good, I would say a great value for money. Especially the wines from New Zealand were very good and enjoyable, and also great value for money. Good atmosphere, I would recommend this restaurant for a casual dining.
Very much in the typical busy French bistro style in terms of atmosphere, menu and service. Friendly staff with the right size of menu for the venue and the right size of proportions of food. The lapin à la moutarde was meaty and tasty, and the cheeses to finish were super. Guests agreed the food was really good. Definite return on the books.
Great lunch time venue for friend and business colleague.
Great set menu and speedy service.
Very enjoyable lunch at the Bleeding Heart Bistro - fishcake excellent as usual and our guest particularly enjoyed the pork cutlet.
Great food and pleasant service, a good venue for a quiet lunch.
Great food, great wine, very busy so good atmosphere and excellent staff cote de boeuf was outstanding
A lovely dinner for college friends in the bistro. I had the set menu which was excellent value for money. Service was super and it was lovely and cosy. No background music thank goodness! We were able to talk and catch up without being deafened. I’ll be going back.
Enjoyable catch-up at the Bleeding Heart Bistro. Food and service very good as always.
One of the best Bistro of London. Great service and food.
It’s a lovely venue tucked away. The staff were all friendly. I dined on the set menu which had enough choice on it. The starter was a lovely leek and gruyere tart. The main coq au vin was tasty enough, but the chicken was slightly dry. The dessert however let the whole thing down.
Chocolate mousse... you can hardly go wrong. It clearly hadn’t set so it was served as a dollop on a plate with no garnish to even try to disguise the fact that it looked like a cow pat on a plate. It didn’t even taste good. The waiter got slightly defensive when we raised it and said sometimes it depends how it comes out the freezer so it could be more compact! Understatement!
He took it off the bill and we were offered an alternative, but it was as though they took the view they would serve it in the hope we knew nothing about food and would have a mess on a plate as an acceptable dessert. It’s good value however if the restaurant maintains consistent standards.
Enjoyable business lunch - prompt service and very good food. Fish cake recommended as usual.
We went to the restaurant in the end, always a delight, great manager and team, delicious food, lovely atmosphere, what else!
Great food but disappointed by the service we received. We were very much rushed through our meal.
Wow - superb food, delicious wine, polite and attentive staff. Highly recommend!
When we arrived they had no record of my booking despite receiving a text confirmation from Opentable a couple of hours earlier. Fortunately they had plenty of room.
Two of us ordered spatchcock chicken as a main course. We were asked whether we wanted a whole chicken between us. It arrived but was more like a whole roast chicken that had been cut in two rather than a true flattened spatchcock. Curious!
Bistro was a bit more disappointing than expected. Cote’d beuf was average however expensive.
Fish was cooked to perfection - food cannon good time despite it being very busy
Great food and perfect service
Get-together with a friend, and we decided to try somewhere different. This was very good for a reasonably shady environment (in Bleeding Heart Yard) on a hot sunny day. Service was attentive and friendly, and food was pretty good, with a better selection of fish dishes than most similar bistros. We felt though that (despite it being central London), the food was a little overpriced.
Great Summer options. I had the gazpachi and then the lobster and avocado salad and they were just right for a hot evening. Sitting outside on the terrace you do not think you are in London, hearing no traffic noise.
The Maitre d' was off-hand in my opinion and had to be specifically asked to take our order after a long wait. Of the three of us, one was brought the incorrect starter so it would appear that our order was not taken down correctly. The remainder of us had to wait whilst our food got cold until the correct starter was brought for the other member of our party. The pork belly was referred to as crispy but the crackling was in fact soggy. On the plus side, the snails and mango dessert were good and it was very pleasant to sit outside. However, in view of the basic errors, I could not recommend the bistro and would be unlikely to go there again. I am prepared to give the restaurant a try. If it doesn't perform any better, it's adieu, Bleeding Heart!
Amazing value every time I visit , great food and choice in either Bistro , Pub or Fine restaurent
Enjoyable lunch at the Bleeding Heart Bistro. We both had the gravadlax starter, which was very good and the fish cake main, which was, as always, excellent.
Enjoyable business lunch at the Bleeding Heart Bistro. Good food as always and this time I got to the desserts !
Special offer not available! Embarrassing to have to negotiate with waiter. Had nice dinner from a la carte menu but spent more than we bargained on. Still, a nice experience.
