A word from Boundary Restaurant
The restaurant's à la carte menu is based on classic and traditional French recipes, with a large selection of fruits de mer. The intention is to offer simple and delicious French regional food alongside quintessential dishes such as escargot à la bourguignonne or cuisses de grenouille, as well as the more indulgent treats such as foie gras, Dover sole, côte de veau and game.

Seasonal ingredients from the British Isles such as grouse, hare, asparagus and gulls eggs, together with truffles from France and Italy, are all included when available. Charcuterie, oysters, smoked wild salmon, daily-changing roast meats from the rotisserie and cheese are served from chariots in the dining room.The pudding menu always includes a glamorous soufflé and madeleines baked to order.
Please see the restaurant website for further information in regards to the Sunday lunch menu.

Diner Reviews
  • "This time I brought family members, including a six year old, visiting from America. The reaction is the same as with any other guests/friends I've brought here - they've had the best meal and experience!"
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "Always a pleasure to dine at Boundary. Excellent food, outstanding service, lovely environment and yet comfortably informal/friendly."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "One of the best meals I have had in London. The staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgable about all walks of the menu. Starter, Main and Dessert were all sublime and the wine selection was magnificent. Will definitely return, thank you!"

  • "Very attentive staff. Beautiful food cooked to perfection. Great ambience and tasteful decor. Raucous traders at next table couldn't dampen our enjoyment!"
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Dined here three times and have always come away feeling like I've been treated to a delightful meal and been well looked after by the excellent staff. Although on the slightly expensive side, always been well worth the money. Highly recommended, particularly if it's followed by post-meal drinks on the rooftop."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "It's always good to see a restaurant at the top of it's game effortlessly delivering good value food in stylish surroundings. Professional, yet unobtrusive service. A two course lunch for under 20 pounds with an excellent choice of dishes superbly presented."
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "Took my mum here for Mother's Day; firstly very impressed they didn't jack up the price of their normal Sunday lunch offer because of the day, and secondly very impressed with the quality of the food and the standard of service. I had the charcuterie to start (plate prepared at the table) and the beef bourguignon for main, and both were outstanding. Even the bread and butter was particularly tasty. Value-wise, at £20 for two generous courses this easily rivals even mediocre pub offerings on a Sunday, and was significantly better quality. Only issue value-wise was that the cheapest bottle of rose wine was £34. I would definitely eat Sunday lunch here again and recommend to others."

  • "Just had a lovely meal with my family, the menu was very good and overall the food was excellent, and extremely good value for money.

I took my partner there for his birthday as a surprise and he absolutely loved it. All the staff were really friendly and personable - the bar is set high, other restaurants should take note! Thank you boundary for a lovely evening."

  • "We booked last minute and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. My wife is pregnant and the waiter called up the bar man to the table to rustle up a non-alcoholic cocktail on the basis of the flavours that she likes. The food was excellent, charcuterie in particular was good! We had the set menu which was delicious and good value. Would definitely go again and recommend."

    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Great meal and we had a lovely time. Only reason I couldn't give 5 out of 5 for everything is that we waited quite a while for drinks when we first ordered, to the point where we managed to grab a passing waitress to take our drinks order and we then had to wait quite a while until we actually received them (my drink finally arrived at the same time as my starter and long after the wine arrived which I ordered long after). However, I've been to the boundary a number of times before and will again and again. I also rang that day to mention the meal was for a special occasion, and we were put in a lovely quiet booth which was perfect for the occasion."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Me and my wife dined on a Friday 8pm slot and found all the staff at the boundary to be very helpful, attentive without being annoying. The food was excellent and the wine and drinks list very extensive. We had a great evening and I would definitely recommend the Boundary to anyone looking for a luxury dining experience."

  • "Busy Saturday night - bar area is on the small side but the service was attentive and friendly. Food was lovely and will go back"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "I went there for Sunday lunch with a friend expecting it to be similar to the Albion downstairs (Don't ask why) but I didn't realize that it was French influenced, which was fine but disappointing to my friend who had been wanting a Sunday Roast. We asked the waiter about the size of the portions and he said that they were sizable but that he would order us some extra veggies just in case. My duck breast wasn't very nice and was hard to chew while my companion's Lamb was delicious but tiny. Our sides never came but we were charged £5.50 each for them. Anyway we informed them that the sides never came and they apologized and removed it from the bill. This place is only suitable for those with small appetites of those dieting!!"
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Busy, of course, but we'll organised - never felt rushed to vacate for next sitting. Service very good without being obtrusive, especially the wine waiter. Food presentation and flavour outstanding. Want to go again!"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Very romantic place, perfect for a special occasion as St Valentine day! Food was delicious and service very nice. I would definitely suggest this restaurant to anyone looking for a special place to spend dinner with his/her beloved one."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "As usual great service, wine and all round good meal."
    dined on 13/02/2014
  • "Everything about our visit to the Boundary on Saturday was excellent. The service was unbelievably attentive without being claustrophobic and the food was some of the best we have ever eaten. This was our first visit and it will not be the last judging on our experience."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "Boundary is our restaurant of choice near the office for special occasions. The food is always stunning - this time we splurged on a fancy desert that was hazelnut cream in the form of a little ball with a very fancy lattice hat. It was so over the top and even though we were all very satiated after our mains we couldn't resist and were glad we didn't. The other thing we did differently at this meal was to start in the bar with cocktails. They were all beautiful and tasted brilliant. We will keep returning again and again."
    dined on 22/10/2013
  • "A friend and I had a very good meal here, opting for their prix fixe menu. The only thing was the Creme Brulee. I lived in France for years and know how this should be, but the waitress insisted I was wrong when we complained about the appearance and taste of it. Thankfully they didn't charge us for the dessert in the end, and overall it was a good experience."

    dined on 18/01/2014
  • "Some what over rated. Great wine menu and view of the kitchen. Food was mediocre. The lamb was not cooked enough and went cold very quickly. Might try Sunday lunch. The jury is out on this one."
    dined on 21/01/2014
  • "The food and service were superb. Lovely restaurant. In the basement of the hotel so more of a place you'd go on a winters day or a rainy day rather than a lovely sunny day! Super experience."

    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "We had a great night at The Boundary for NYE! We enjoyed the food, drinks and wine as well as the great service. We had pre-dinner drinks at the bar and they were amazing - and very friendly and chatty bartenders too. The service during the dinner was great - perfect balance between attention and privacy. And the food was excellent! Thank you so much for a great night."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "Prix Fixe dinner was excellent. Limited choices but all excellent options. Lobster ravioli and charcuterie were standouts. Service always impeccable and professional. Remains one of my favourite restaurants. Better have a healthy wallet though. Fine dining is getting silly expensive."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "This restaurant is always a special place to visit. The bar is small but perfectly formed, and on this visit, they made me a very lovely couple of margharitas. There are two dishes on the menu that I pretty much order every time, shellfish gratin and roast chicken. Sadly this time, the full menu did not seem to be available, but the autumn menu did have some lovely dishes and we particularly enjoyed the fois gras."
