A few years ago we dined at Bar Boulud in London and it was one of our favorite meals to date. We didn't have very high expectations of Bar Boulud Boston due to online reviews. Sadly the reviews were mostly accurate.
We started our dinner with drinks in the bar while waiting for our table. For appetizers we ordered Crispyy Pork Rinds, Beef Tartare, and Pork Belly. We could not stop eating the pork rinds! Unfortunately the pork belly was just okay and the Beef Tartare wasn't to our taste and the accompanying potatoes were inedible due to salt.
For our entrees we orderded the Duck breast and the Coq au vin. While both dishes were fine the salt content was again much to high.
Sadly our dinner was disturbed by the customers next to us. When a customer's credit card is declined for whatever reason I feel it would be best to pull the customer aside not discuss it at a table with other customers a foot away. This process went on for at least 20 minutes!
We probably wouldn't return nor recommend this location.
