SquareMeal Review of Bar Boulud at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park

"EXCELLENT"

SquareMeal London Hot 100 2018TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO FIRE DAMAGE. REOPENS 4 DECEMBER 2018

Although it was lightly refurbished in early 2017, even regulars would be hard pressed to notice any changes to Bar Boulud’s wood and beige interiors. The design might be restrained, but the combination of super-flattering lighting, friendly staff and chattering diners makes this one of the capital’s buzziest dining rooms. New York-based French chef Daniel Boulud may be a big name in global gastronomy but he’s very much in casual mode here, offering up the sort of Gallic classics that are many people’s idea of the perfect meal out. Starters of seared prawns and Burgundy snails are festooned with enough garlic to ward off a vampire, while lemon sole with grenobloise butter followed by a sweet slice of gateau basque and crème anglaise prove that this kitchen knows how to finish a dish with a fabulous sauce. “Although it’s high end, it isn't snobby at all” say readers, so you can also pop in for a luscious croque madame with fries or one of the “mouth-watering” inch-thick BB burgers – not what you might expect from a dining room in the Mandarin Oriental. All in all, the “best fun” you can have in Knightsbridge.

Worldwide wine list and innovative cocktails. French style snacks and amuse bouche. Exemplary service. The only thing I can reproach to this place is the hotel/tourists atmosphere and low ceiling.

Went for a casual lunch with sister on a day Daniel Boulud lui meme was visiting from New York. The team was helpful and have an eye on details. The menu has a a large selection of French classics from cold cuts to moules a la creme or fresh shellfish platter. Good burger as well…on a yummy brioche bien sur. Good size portions. Large selection of wine by the glass and even chateau Yquem on the dessert wine list. We will be coming back, you have service without stuffiness and nice food at the mandarin oriental

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!
