A small group of us took a friend here for her 30th birthday on Thursday night. I have been a couple of times before and it has always been great so I was looking forward to introducing the restaurant to my friends. All I can say is it definitely did not disappoint. The service through out the meal was phenomenal,... More

Excellent food and fantastic wine. Terrific value, but let down a tad by the time taken for things to arrive. The restaurant was half full on a Saturday night when we visited. There were about five tables occupied with a single waiter taking care of all five. Maybe it was because food was cooked fresh (good!!) or maybe it was... More

We went with friends for lunch on a week day. It took many attempts at booking over the phone and eventually my partner sent an email. We discovered that they have been having problems and this has affected their trade badly. I am sure once these are sorted they will be back on course and very busy again. We had... More

We visited Sat Mar 1st for an anniversary meal. We were warmly greeted. There was a complimentary appetizer, followed by a great 3 course meal and fantastic wine. The menu is wide and varied so lots of choice. The room is modern but elegantly decorated. Service was spot on. Prices were just right. Definitely deserved it's Top 10 places in... More

We went to l'assiette for a dinner for two this evening. The surroundings were chic, the service attentive yet unobtrusive and the food delicious. We will definitely be making a return visit.

I made a booking for this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews. I wanted to take my daughter out for Christmas Day lunch. The menu was a fixed 6 course meal at a cost of £50 per head, very reasonable for Christmas Day. The meal began with a Bucks Fizz and a few canapés; 2 smoked salmon and 2 chicken liver... More

Having just returned from Paris and sampled the food there I have to say L'Assiette was even better than the food over there. This is only my 4th Trip Advisor Review such was my motivation to rave about this fabulous place. As a part time Interior designer I also completely loved the décor - very modern black / glass /...

L'Assiette is a small, but very smart looking restaurant. The menu is typically French, with five or six starters and six or seven main courses. On the whole the food was very good, but it was terribly slow in coming; we waited an hour for the starters. With a fairly small menu and only about twenty five customers I cannot... More

We live nearby and saved going here for a special occasion as all the reviews were so positive. Unfortunately the restaurant did not live up to the hype. The restaurant is modern and well laid out. There was only one server who struggled to keep on top of the 6 occupied tables, although he was pleasant enough. The waiter brought... More
