Food was excellent, can recommend the lemon sole. Had a good buzz about the place even though it was fairly quiet on a Monday lunchtime. Waitress well informed on the menu, service just a bit slow at times. Would use again.

Had a very nice meal for two here on Friday night - we didn't realise that there was going to be live music, but were lucky enough to be seated near the piano and double-bass player! Had a nice meal - all really well cooked and presented, nothing to absolutely blow you away, but a very meal with an extensive... More

Five of us visited on a Thursday night. We started in the bar area where the selection of beers and wine list was very interesting, then proceeded downstairs to our table. What a difference. In the bar, the staff were friendly and very conversational. However, the same can not be said in the restaurant. The hostess was OK, but the... More

Tucked away in this dead-end alley way is an easy-to-miss but not-to-be missed treat! Warm and friendly service, great food, a really good value set dinner. Pleasant bar upstairs. Great! The theme is Scottish.

Went for supper on a cols wet Monday evening and the restaurant was quiet although to be fair it was also quite early. Having been to Boisdale at Canary Wharf, this is a surprising change decked out in a lush red and much smaller and more intimate. The food was excellent as expected if a little pricey with drinks

Dear Neale, Thank you for taking the time to write and we're pleased to hear thet you enjoyed your dinner, and yes sometimes in the early Monday evenings we are quieter than rest of the week, but I'm sure it didn't affect an ambience. I'm looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Best Regards, Ines More

This particular restaurant is one of my favourite restaurants ever but unfortunately although the food is still superb, the service has become shockingly bad. I took my fiancé there and boasted for a week prior how impressed she would be and that she was in for a real treat. However, the night started off with no menu, followed by our... More

Had a wonderful steak dinner, over priced (£80 for 2 people, mains only and 2 glasses of wine" but the service was great, the food was lovely although we had trouble finding the restaurant

This place is full of atmosphere. It is hard to describe but always busy, noisy with people enjoying themselves. That gives it atmosphere. The food is always high quality and you can't go wrong with a steak here, they are wonderful.

Have been to all the Boisdale's now and the one in Bishopsgate delivered like the rest. Similar in decor and set up to the one in Belgravia, very different to Canary Wharf. Tucked away on Bishopsgate, great food and drinks selection, bar on ground floor and restaurant downstairs.

Went here with some colleagues for Burns Night, the food and service was great, and having the man playing the Bagpipes was a lovely touch, have been here many times on Burns Night as always have a lovely meal and great service, would highly recommend any time!

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
