SquareMeal Review of Boyds Grill & Wine Bar

bronze award

BRONZE AWARD

If ever you want to experience Victorian grandeur at its apogee, take a peek into the glorious interior of Boyds. Marble-clad, with double-height ceilings and a fabulously elegant bar and lounge area, it epitomises the sumptuousness of the period – and the food’s pretty good too. Drop in for a quick bite at lunchtime, or to meet a colleague or a date for a drink after work. Alternatively, make a night of it with the whole client-entertaining caboodle. The kitchen produces a modern British menu with global overtones – salmon comes cured in Sipsmith gin and served with buttermilk sorbet and daikon; rib-eye steak has a bone marrow faggot for company, and a pile of buttery mash to soak up the Bordelaise sauce; bar nibbles include various cheeses and cured and potted meat. The wine list and cocktails, cherry-picked from around the world, would make an imperialist feel entirely at home.

The food was absolutely fantastic, please don't loose the chef and their team. The person I was with told them it was my birthday when we arrived. They surprised both of us with a bailey's chocolate cheesecake which was divine and something they didn't have to do. All the staff were lovely and attentive. This is somewhere I would recommend anyone to go to as you will have a fantastic evening. Many thanks for looking after me and making my birthday very enjoyable.

Silver Reviewer

Boyds is basically the secluded section of a space that evokes the lobby of a faded grand hotel. Indeed, this was once the Imperial Victoria and it could have served as a set for the film "The Grand Budapest Hotel". The upholstery of the furniture is irredeemably ugly and the modern paintings on the wall have no artistic merit and are nothing more than Eurotat paint spills. Descending from the distant ceiling and jarring strongly with the opulent faux and real marble are a number of weird chandeliers, clearly leftovers from a Star Trek episode that didn't quite work. Once in a while, though, our constitutions are left healthier for a bit of jarring and this setting certainly does it. But that is all that is disconcerting. The food is well above average and the menu gives you the inspired ability to combine what is effectively a number of tapas followed by a main course that is inevitably very good. Service is competent but variable. At best, it is coolly efficient, and at its worst the servers stand around looking vaguely uneasy. Maybe they fear what an earth tremor might do to those chandeliers. Nevertheless, this is a good restaurant despite the unfortunate esthetics. It is becoming popular and deserves to be, especially in the chilly culinary desert that is Northumberland Avenue.
