Harden's survey result
“Very suave service” (“the staff make the meal into an occasion”) adds to the polish of Pablo de Tarso and Nicolas Jaouën’s “elegant” and “quite formal” (“white tablecloths, etc”) Italian: one of the better options in Covent Garden “to make an evening feel special before or after a show”. “Very accomplished” cooking completes the picture, although arguably “more traditional dishes work best”. Top Menu Tip: “particularly excellent osso bucco”.
“An instant classic, bravo!” This “very elegant Italian on the edge of Covent Garden” proved one of the best arrivals of 2016 and although the odd report complains it’s been “hyped” the vast majority say it’s plain “stunning”. “Quality and service are in abundance” – the comfortable interior feels enjoyably “superior”, and “staff make the meal into an occasion – they make you feel very special”. “Most of the menu is of traditional dishes with a twist” and it’s “damned good too”. Top Menu Tip – “the best ever Osso Buco”.
Bar Boulud Maitre d’ Paulo de Tarso leaves Knightsbridge to open this new Italian restaurant, in Covent Garden in October 2016 alongside restaurateur Nicolas Jaouën.
Margot Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Very polished. Very Milano. Very safe Probably only worth it if you don't care about value for money"
"Very welcoming and friendly team, from the door host to the sommelier. Great service in a classy environment. Will visit again soon."
"Stunning! The staff make the meal into an occasion - they really CAN make you feel very special, in a personal way - and the food's damned good too."
"Very nice room but over-the-top service. A splendid place if you're a Russian oligarch, this restaurant should be in Mayfair or Kensington. Very good if you like lots of staff hovering around you all the time but I don't. The food is interesting but the quality variable: the Octopus starter was excellent, the pasta special of the day was no better than I could have cooked at home and the caramel mousse was parsimonious. Expensive and not truly value for money unless you like lots of staff fawning over you."
"Super Italian in a good location. Service impeccable. Will definitely go there again."
