This restaurant is lovely; it's stylish and beautifully decorated throughout. We loved the fact that you sat in a booth and we loved the champagne "call button". Service was prompt and friendly. The food had mixed reviews. We were a party of six here for dinner so we had a fairly wide selection. Beetroot and goats cheese starter was very... More

the service was faultless, knowledge of our waiter excellent particularly to recommend some fantastic but not expensive wine with dinner. Very busy even though just a week night, doubt you'd get in without booking. Pricey but no more so than similar places in that part of town.

Wow - what a great venue, the decor is completely unique and the booths give a great sense of privacy. Although portion sizes are slightly too small for the price, the food cannot be faulted. The service was excellent from the moment I stepped through the doors and as for the champagne button on the table - what a great... More

This is a great venue with an interesting and well presented menu. Some nights they have a cabaret downstairs, which was most entertaining. The menu has a Russian tinge to it, but is sufficiently international to appeal to anyone that is not particularly keen on a Soviet diet. The service was excellent, but you won't get a lot of change... More

Gorgeous, stylish, unique decor. All booths which makes for greater intimacy, unlike many London restaurants! It's rather a decadent sort of place. Had the best bellini ever here. Food generally very good. A really nice experience, and we will return.

We had a fabulous weekend celebrating Valentine's at Ronnie Scott's on Sturday and our wedding anniversary having lunch at Bob Bob Ricard with our two daughters. The food was fabulous and service welcoming and attentive.It helped make the day special.

The smile on my wife's face when we walked into the restaurant said it all. The decor is just stunning, you constantly find your eyes drawn to the different aspects of the decor while you decide what to order from the excellent choices on the menu. The seabass ceviche was spot on and baked Oysters Brezhnev was so good we... More

Visited with a business trip. A good semi informal setting for business. We were seated in club lounge downstairs. Interior is very special we were fortunate to be able to press the for champagne button. Staff is efficient and nice to explain about some of the background of certain menu choices. I had oysters brechnev and make sure you take... More
