Have eaten at Bar Boulud twice for business engagements over the past year and decided to test out more casually with my wife, daughter and her boyfriend on a Thursday night. Was a bit surprised to be able to book a table only 24 hours in advance at preferred time.
Service was great from the moment we stepped in the door, from door staff to bar to table – all very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Long Island Iced Teas at the bar were exceptionally good. Food choice comes pretty much straight out of a New York grill, and when asked, the waiters will recommend the burgers which are clearly the signature. But there is plenty of choice if burgers are not your thing, We stuck to burgers and steaks which all arrived promptly and were cooked to requirement – an unusual thing for a sirloin steak in London. Looking around it appeared that all customers were served promptly and the food looked good on everyone else's plate as well. After three visits I still have not had the burger with foie gras and short ribs but it sounds and looks great. Have the cardiac equipment close to hand!!!
Only downside was the wine list. Great content, very pricey. I get a little irritated by paying up to £80 for a bottle of mediocre red wine and this one point tarnished my view of value for money at BB.
But hey, everyone was so friendly that even this did not spoil a great evening. Will be back for that burger!
