I love Boisdale in Belgravia but the Mayfair restaurant is terrible. The staff seem untrained, inattentive and not all that bothered.
Our main course arrived terribly cooked and had clearly been sitting on the hot plate for ages. Given that there were only about four tables in total is unacceptable. Later in the evening the staff were eating at the bar and pretty inattentive. Really bad experience.

I have been to the Boisdale restaurant in Victoria a few times and always enjoyed it.
The experience in the Mayfair one was really good, food and service alike! The only regret is the music started fairly later than planned and the band of the day were not that great.

Would have been very very disappointed had a I paid full price (we used Groupon voucher)
When you arrive they tell you it will take 45 minutes to cook a steak and so you have to get a starter. No complimentary bread. Ambience was awful, live music half way through slightly helped.
Food wasn’t bad, just average. Much nicer steak places out there

I had been to the Belgravia Boisdale previously and had an excellent evening & thought that the Mayfair branch would be similarly enjoyable.

However - the manager suggested that as I'd used opentable's 50% off deal, we had come for the money not for the jazz, and therefore deserved a table further from the jazz, versus diners who had booked through another site. Given I'd been to another branch previously, and had actually come for the jazz, this wasn't particularly appreciated.

The jazz then wasn't jazz - mostly smooth covers of pop/recent chart hits.

My food was good, my partner's food wasn't.

This is the Mayfair branch of the Scottish-themed Boisdale chain. Fun pub atmosphere with food that is well prepared and tasty, certainly not slimming!

I did enjoy the Boisdale with my group of friends. Nice and courteous staff, and mostly attentive. They had ran out of the Chateaubriand steak which was a disappointment so I then ordered the Ribeye steak medium rare as did another in my group. They both came back as really well done which I mentioned to the waiter but nothing was done about it.

Everything else was fine but please address the overdone steaks better next time.

The baby Boisdale has been open for around 18 months now and has settled into the McDonald family very nicely. It has a gastropub vibe which is no bad thing and lacks the pretension of much else of what is on offer in Mayfair. The food was good and the service excellent. That said, for the true Boisdale experience, Belgravia remains the Head Boy.

Great food, great service, great ambiance. This branch of Boisdale with its cozy small rooms may even be better than the original Belgravia HQ. Super service, the tempting and mouthwatering Boisdale menu. This time we just had burgers and a glass of wine (as we were in a bit of a rush) - which were superior and delicious. Wonderful succulent meat, crispy chunky chips, luscious bernaise sauce. Perfect for a cold Friday in February! A splendid new-ish addition to the restaurant wasteland of Marble Arch!

Il Boisdale of Mayfair rimane sempre una certezza. Cibo sicuramente all’altezza con gradite sorprese sul fronte pesce. Servizio impeccabile e di grande simpatia. Una selezione di whiskey di altissimo livello. Ovviamente anche il conto è proporzionato :)

Good food and a great service. Worth the visit. We were a table of 5 adults with a buggy (not too much space for the buggy, but we finally fit it). We order a couple of burgers and pasta as main dishes, and the food was delicious. We were served by a nice blonde lady who was very helpful. It is a good place to have a nice lunch or dinner.

Second time I go here and it continues to deliver. Great food. The service can be a bit hit-and-miss, but it’s a small place so you will be attended to fairly quickly. The smoked haddock is to die for.

Excellent music and food. Restaurant did not have booking, had to wait 30 minutes at bar for table. Bernaise sauce for steak delivered 10 minutes after steak was delivered. Was asked to clear table for next guest when we had barely been there an hour and was seated late.
