Boisdale is a jazz venue and its opening in Canary Wharf offered a different experience to its diners.
Decked out in a hue of deep red, it lends a charmed richness. The place is huge and spans over two levels.
I would say that you don't come to Boisdale expecting excellent food. What you come for is solid food even if it is a tad boring, to have a good time and to listen to bands playing. A worthy note goes to the oysters, excellent they were, clean and fresh. Definitely refreshing. Food is a little on the £££ side and whether it conveys a value for money would be up to the diner.
Conversations will need to be either a shouting match when the band is playing as the volume is just way too loud to be able to hold a gentle conversation or temporary silence.
I'll say come here when there is a band or jazz singer that you're interested to listen to.
Will I recommend: Yes
Will I come back: If there is a band that I'm interested playing.
Have I had better: Yes
