An outpost of the New York flagship, with seamless service, outstanding modern French and American food, and an eye-catching view of the open-plan kitchen.

Bar Boulud is located in the basement of the majestic Mandarin Oriental and attracts a diverse mix of families, hotel guests, business people and romancing couples. Overseen by renowned chef Daniel Boulud, the restaurant has an eye-catching view of the open-plan kitchen where chefs work in zen-like calm. Charcuterie from Gilles Verot is a big draw, as are the elegant French brasserie options and finger-licking American staples. We’ve had burgers here and loved every bite – perhaps a beef patty topped with pulled pork and green chilli mayonnaise or a French-US collaboration of beefy burger piled high with pork confit and morbier cheese.

On our latest visit, we enjoyed such culinary gems as a robust french onion soup, resplendent with caramelised onions and topped with molten gruyère. A veritable mountain of steamed plump mussels cloaked in garlicky red chilli tomato sauce was another winner – every last saucy drop mopped up with chargrilled bread. The only downer was a lacklustre chocolate sponge layered with chilled coffee buttercream, although its accompanying scoop of coffee ice-cream saved the day. A class performance topped off by seamless service.

The cheapest way in here is the 'Bouchon Menu' served daily from noon–7pm: 2 courses for £17 or 3 courses for £19 including a glass of house wine and coffee. Otherwise, Sunday Brunch (served 11am-3.30pm; £39pp) is a fun way to experience Bar Boulud's delights, mixing super-indulgent French and American dishes with plenty of booze.

Bar Boulud says
Set in bustling Knightsbridge, the award-winning Bar Boulud London is a French-inspired bistro and wine bar at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. It's under the direction of renowned Lyon-born chef Daniel Boulud, following the successful format of Bar Boulud New York. The full à la carte bistro menu - served Monday through Saturday and Sunday evenings - is based on seasonal, rustic French cooking, and includes an array of charcuterie, house-made terrines, pâtés, hams, saucissons, boudins and more - specially prepared on site.

Also featured are Boulud's popular American transplants, the 'yankee' and 'piggie' burgers, as well as signature 'BB' Burger unique to London. A £17 two or £19 three course 'bouchon menu', changing weekly, is available until 7pm, inclusive of tea or coffee. It's an excellent option for pre-theatre dining. New to 2015, Bar Boulud now serves Sunday brunch from 11am to 3.30pm at £39, with children's menu options also available.

Showcasing an impressive selection of wines from the Burgundy and Rhône regions - and serving great wine by the glass from rare, large-format bottles - are the trademarks of Bar Boulud.

Went for afternoon tea yesterday. It was incredible! They made a point of explaining that it was not your typical afternoon tea (possibly because of complaints in the past) but having done my research I knew what to expect and I wasn't disappointed. The beautiful cake stands came out adorned with a base layer of savoury. No scones or cucumber sandwiches but a silky smooth chicken liver pate, crayfish sandwich and a pot of heavenly salmon pate. An upper layer of macaroons and ginger cake toppe with a layer of passionfruit tart and something my husband described as Chocolate Goo-but the nicest Goo he'd ever eaten. Yes it's expensive but afternoon tea in a central London location is always going to be. Couldn't fault the service either. Win all round.

Service was great. Food was okay, didn't serve tea and scones which was a bit disappointing, Overall rather expensive for what we got.
