Waiter was very attentive, food was great and a lovely setting with candles for a dinner date. It’s a bit dark but I guess it’s for mood lighting. The French onion soup and seafood linguine was amazing. Would highly recommend!

Sadly this visit we had a really poor experience with regard to the food, which was a shame as I have been to Boulevard many times over the years and always had excellent food. I love croque monsieur and especially the one in Boulevard made so well with a lovely bechamel sauce and excellent ham and cheese. This time my husband and I both had the croque monsieur on my recommendation. Basically it was cheese on toast with some ham. It was dry and there certainly was no bechamel sauce. Mine was changed for a very bland pate with one piece of warmish toast and some chutney. I was assured it was made on site but not the standard I expected from Boulevard and for the price charged it represented poor value as did the price of the croque. We couldn’t send back my husband’s as he was desperately hungry and had to take medication after food.

We had a cocktail to start which was called a French 75, gin, lemon juice and champagne. Not quite sure how much gin was supposed to be in the mixture but the over powering taste was lemon juice, I couldn’t taste any gin at all.

Our waiter was very charming and the wine was good, but sadly this visit was a total disappointment and not money well spent.

I am sure this was only an unlucky one off experience and we will of course be back in due course.

Best wishes,

Sue Carr-Hill

Had a pre Theatre meal here. Service was excellent and food very tasty. Great pork chop. Cozy ambience, right in Theatre land, and getting quite busy by the time we left.

Lunchtime table for my wife and another couple last Monday.
The Maître D' was very efficient and showed us to a nice out of the way window table. Our waitress was warm friendly and very helpful. The food was very good, we all went for two courses. Two of us had winter casserole and my wife had the vegetarian linguine dish. All washed down with a nice white wine
The restaurant was relatively quiet when we arrived at 12.30 but soon filled up to give a vibrant atmosphere. Nonetheless, we enjoyed a very relaxed meal which afforded us plenty of time to catch up.
Taking advantage of a 50% off food offer, the bill came to just over £100, which seemed extremely good value for a restaurant less than 100m from Covent Garden.
Highly recommended!

We came in a couple of months ago looking for a place to just have drinks and the team was very accommodating so we booked and had dinner this week and it was really lovely. Service was a bit slow but we were in no hurry and the food was great.

Quite noisy from the bar staff loading utensils and glassware. But the 50% off 2 courses meant each person paid £15 for a 2 course meal in Soho. Quite good. Someone ordered the tiger prawns. They were just prawns with the head and tail still on and plated on a hot plate, so it was weird to deshell an entire prawn with utensils but the hot plate made it impossible to do with your hands.

Friendly attentive service but not intrusive. Both had soup followed steak, very nice ...onion and fish soup were as good as we've had in France. Used the open table 50% off food so particularly good value

Disappointed with service and lack of rapport with waiting personnel. We had to ask for everything. Wine not good enough for price paid. Some portions too small. Had previous experience which was better. No rush back.

Great food and service. Our table was not ready on arrival so we had to wait a few minutes. We were compensated with a glass of Prosecco each. Charming staff.
Hadn’t eaten here for many years, but we’ll be back!

We were a party of 8 and one of us had been sent a "free bottle of prosecco " voucher which we were not allowed to use. We also wanted to pay with the app which we also were unable to do.

Visited with a small group of colleagues after work on a Monday evening - Had a lovely night! Seated upstairs, nice table, good service, food was lovely and came quite quickly, had a very relaxed evening, became quiet after the pre-theatre diners had left but throughout service and ambience was good - I'd go back!

I visit often but was disappointed that when taking a friend there for the first time that a lot of the menu was unavailable as they had run out. The restaurant opens at 12:00 and my booking was 12:15 so I would not expect that the Sunday lunch menu had run out. Nevertheless, I think it’s in a great location, the food is of good quality and value and the service up to scratch.
I will visit again in hope they are more prepared for the custom they get on my next visit.

It was a lovely restaurant. The service was slow but a good slow, just right to have nice meal and not feel rushed. The food was good. We had an amazing table upstairs by the window.

Overall a good experience. The cocktails weren’t made properly and didn’t taste great, and the service was slow (we got our main courses 1hr and 15mins after sitting down) but it was a Saturday evening and they were very busy. The food itself was very tasty, and the team were friendly.

Our family group of 5 enjoyed an early pre-theatre dinner. The menu was simple but the food tasty, the staff friendly, the atmosphere relaxed and the price reasonable.
