    A little trouble to find as we’ve not been to the restaurant before. Really lovely ambience and relaxing but luxurious feel about the place. Service was mediocre. Not to a high standard. Girls dresses were too short, not appropriate for the venue. Lack of knowledge and just lacklustre. Food was delicious and our table was at the window, perfect viewing experience. Reasonably priced too. Definitely go back for either lunch or dinner again with friends.

    We had a great time at Boisdale on Saturday evening after visiting Winter lights at Canary Wharf. We were a bit early for our booking but manager was very nice and took us downstairs to the bar. Our party included a 4 year old boy, who got a lot of attention from everyone, even from the security guy. Also manager offered him a juice cocktail on the house which was really nice. Food was great! My husband loved his burger and he’s is hard to pleased as he’s making amazing burgers himself. I enjoyed pheasant breast with mash potatoes in wine sauce very much and my mother-in-law loved fish of the day course. Only our 4 year old was an bit off his pizza Margarita as instead of usual red tomato sauce it had green pesto sauce. The waitress was very attentive, helpful and super nice. Overall we had an amazing experience. Thank you!

    Went on burns night for some midweek Haggis and was an excellent starter. The mains were ok, but have been better on previous visits and I appreciate it was a super busy evening for them. Our waiter was really friendly, very attentive and really made our evening enjoyable. There was no pressure to leave before their evening show started and was a really lovely midweek treat overall.

    First time visit and won’t rush back. Food was ok, nothing special and one dish arrived and was not as described. Service pretty poor with long waits even though the place seemed half empty. Live jazz singer at lunchtime which was great but just too loud for the table to be able to have a conversation.

    Parts of the meal were good but over £6 for 5 small, basic florets of broccoli was poor. Worse was the service, the single waitress disappeared for 10 minutes before we had ordered, reemerged eventually carrying tablecloths and it took another ten minutes at the end to catch her eye for the bill. Disappointing. And I am not exaggerating!

    We arrived on 2/f where The manager directed us to 1/f, when we went to 1/f, the floor manager checked the booking and said it should be 2/f. Also, we saw the promotion in Instagram on certain steaks till 30 Apr, when we were there, they said the promotion is no longer valid

    All a bit odd. Had to take a 6:30 booking even though there were only two tables occupied when we left at 9:00 pm. Meant to be a Scottish restaurant but Latino music, mix of Cuban Jazz and Salsa. Food was a Scottish with an Italian twist. Nothing seemed to gel. Overall my wife and I enjoyed the evening but would not go back, as it was all a bit of a mismatch.

    Overall Disappointing. Nice bar and the “Captain” was helpful and good fun. Headed upstairs to the main restaurant and after ordering and receiving our starters we were told we need to vacate the table in 30 mins. The issue was thankfully resolved but certainly not what you expect to hear. Food was actually ok although not special. Some of the waiters appeared to be new and not particularly experienced, possibly post pandemic reasons so excusable, but being given a spoon for cheese and biscuits was a first. Settled up and headed back downstairs to the bar to be met with an over zealous doorman who clearly didn’t want to let us in, by the time common sense had prevailed my guests had given up and left to go elsewhere… we won’t be rushing back, despite the efforts of the “Captain” who was the only one who seemed to care about the patrons.

    I was a regular at boisdales before Covid and was really looking forward to coming back. Sadly it was really disappointing. I think they have lost there great chefs as the food was seriously disappointing. My fillet was tiny.. even the waiter commented. Flavourless spinach, no cheese and and a tiny mouthful of steak. The waiter who served us was lovely but everything else was an absolute let down.

    Probably the worst experience in all these years of dining at Boisdale. A very chaotic reservation system. We checked in at 7pm and our food arrived by 7:20. The waiter kept coming to our table to pour wine after each sip. By 7:40pm the waiter came and told us they needed the table by 8pm!!! I protested as the booking was for 2 hours. Then the front desk lady came and said that Jazz would start by 8pm and that we had to leave. The same thing happened to another couple who also stormed out fuming after being rushed!! Terrible food - very stale. The vegan burger smelled like the patty was in the freezer since the lockdown in 2020! The chicken breast was dry and utterly unappetizing. Never going back to Boisdale. This was shameful for such a high end place that charges so much!! I plan to write an editorial review of this establishment.

    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!

    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
