Call Boisdale of Canary Wharf to make a booking on:
A reassuring alternative to the polished glass and hard edges of its Canary Wharf neighbours, Boisdale is positively tartan-tastic – there’s even a patterned rug for every knee out on the heated cigar terrace. It might sound doddery, but a businesslike crowd and live music (overseen by ‘sommelier of sound’ Jools Holland) add considerable verve – as does an enlivening selection of over 900 single malt whiskies. The Scottish skew continues on the menu, which opens with fine shellfish, pressed pheasant terrine and a mini roast haggis with neeps ‘n’ tatties – although mains widen the net to include, perhaps, chicken curry with winter squash dhal, poached Cornish sea bass or the house Aberdeenshire steak (served with Thai chilli mayo and the “obligatory” chips). Fittingly, a favourite wine order is “a bottle (or two) of the house claret”, polished off with something from the trolley of British farmhouse cheeses.

wasn't great - was quite empty considering it was lunchtime. Service not as good as you would expect in a city hub.

The level of service I have received from Boisdale at Canary Wharf has been utterly disgusting. With the holiday season upon us, a lot of people have had to re-evaluate their priorities, and therefore cancelling other plans. The way Boisdale Canary Wharf had handled the situation was horrendous, and considering it is the season of goodwill, they were unbelievably stubborn about cancelling a reservation. I have spoken to a few colleagues who are always looking for places to dine in Canary Wharf, and they have never experienced this problem and have made a note of it.
It is safe to say that the colleagues who are using this reservation, will not be making the mistake of going there, especially as the food is over-priced and the services is under-rated!

‘The Boss’ was so impressed with his first visit that he asked me to rebook for a team lunch.
First impression was that it did have that wow factor. The glass ceiling to floor wall gives an unrestricted view of the pretty West India Avenue. Great if conversation becomes rather tedious or your date is a real bore. Another wall is covered with various interesting whiskey/ Spirit bottles providing a further talking point/ distraction, and finally, there is the food which will gladly grab your attention.
There is something for everyone on the menu even those picky clients or guests. The Lemon Sole tasted like it had just come from the sea and the Steak was so tender that a steak knife would not have been needed to cut it. As for the wine, list is extensive without starting too expensive.
The service was fine although luckily we were not in a hurry. Not the place for a quick bite. I expect the Bar and grill on the floor below would suit those looking for a quicker lunch. Once again menu there is varied and plentiful.
A Grand Piano on the stage at the far end fuelled my enthusiasm for a return visit and I will be on the lookout for when Jools Hollands comes back to play. I am sure the regular jazz nights would be amazing.
Lunch or dinner, this restaurant will definitely be top of my list.

Just managed to get a grouse in at this late stage of the season! The atmosphere was poor but only because it was a Monday, but the food more than made up for that at a restaurant that never seems to disappoint.

Felt compelled to write a review as I was super impressed by this venue. Great place,food , athmosphere and good service. Music was sublte but made the evening have a lovely feel. Steak was outstanding. Yes its not cheap but you do feel you know what you are paying for. Highly recommend it.
