Your experience at Bofinger starts when you enter the dining room with its heavy dark wood, the banquets along the walls and the stained glass ceiling. A very typical French brasserie look. The food is excellent brasserie fare. My wife and I both had the...More

Hi, we would like to come to Bofinger for a friend's birthday lunch next week and note that you close at 3pm. Does this mean you stop serving food at 3pm but we can continue with some drinks etc or do we have to leave the table at 3pm and the whole restaurant completely closes? Regards Madeleine
