    Good service. Great mojito, lovely balanced curry although the fish was a little over cooked, but very disappointing pork main. Watery jus, tough pork, a quarter cabbage charred but mostly raw and too hard to cut. Ice creams overly sweet. I wanted to love it but didn’t.

    The beef bourguignon was served in a bowl and the meat was in one large piece which was very difficult to cut because it was served in a bowl. I also found that the meat was not the tender, melt-in-your-mouth cut typical for this dish. I cut away quite a bit of gristle. All in all, I wasn't impressed.

    Excellent evening at BB. Food delicious, my beetroot terrine was unlike anything I'd seen before in terms of colour and presentation, boeuf bourgion (can't spell it), rich and hearty and blackberry and apple crumble light and not at all stodgy. Would have been great to have a bit more crumble however as was a bit sparse. Atmosphere was a bit too noisy so you had to have louder voices to be heard. But minor grumbles. All in all a really lovely evening with excellent food. My new go to place!

    I would avoid as not great French food as one might have thought. It is obvious it is a franchise or so. Saturday night restaurant half full and rather dull crowd, waiters bored and just miserable. Duck had too much salt. Desert was good. Prices were too high for what the restaurant has to offer . People don’t go to restaurant only for food.. they expect nice atmosphere, great service, amazing food and music and so on … Take this from someone who has been to over 300 different restaurants…

    Met a colleague for a business lunch. Brasserie Blanc staff always welcoming. The barman brought our drinks over to our table in the reception area. When we were being seated in the restaurant, I asked for a quiet table and the waitress found us one. Food is always reliably tasty and well presented. We both had boeuf bourguignon and the pistachio souffle. Delicious.

    Due to our train being cancelled we were an hour late with only 45 minutes left before we were due at the Theatre, our son was there on time and able to order our meal. The staff were excellent and as soon as we arrived served our meal which was delicious, we got to the Theatre with minutes to spare. We will return to enjoy a more leisurely meal!

    A regular favourite for a well priced, well cooked Sunday roast. Always choose a quiet table as restaurant is popular with family groups.Staff always charming. Have sampled other options on menu at other times and never disappointed.I find deserts over sweet but that's a personal opinion.

    We stumbled across the Brasserie purely due to staying in Waterloo, and so glad we did. The food was presented well, very tasty and fresh, the service was fantastic and nothing was over priced. The atmosphere was vibrant and a classy setting. Traveling with two young children can be a challenge when choosing where to eat, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and their wine recommendation was one of the best reds we have every tried!!
