Dinner with friends last Friday -Outstanding. From start to finish-Food, Wine-Decor-service-was great. Was a little pricey but worth every penny in my opinion. If you go, ask to be seated in the club room downstairs. Nice touches with the short entertainment and guy that does the hat tricks (if you go you will know what I mean) other nice touches... More

As a party of eight we enjoyed a lovely evening at Bob Bob Ricard. The food was beautifully presented and tasty, with attentive but not intrusive, service. The staff were very knowledgeable about the food & drink. The atmosphere whilst stylish felt unstuffy which was nice. The 'press for champagne' button caused much amusement as did the signature Desert and... More

The ambiance was really good especially at Xmas time with the lights on, making the pink menu more adorable. The very famous 'press me for champagne' button was almost irresistible and we did test it and awed by the speed of the champagne man. Food was good but inevitably pricey. Overall an enjoyable experience and defo going another time for... More

I eat in restaurants every week. We booked a table of five. When we arrived a chair had been put on a table of four. The food was average.. the desert amazing. After spending over £800 I did not appetite a service charge. A tip should be a reward for good service. Not a tax.

Ridiculous policy by the "reception" staff meant that despite having a table booked for 9.30pm, they could not "accommodate" us at the bar for a pre-dinner drink.... seriously??? The bar was empty, there was lots of space, we wanted to spend money and enjoy a relaxing pre-dinner drink but no - we had to go out and find a bar... More

Although I enjoyed my visit I came away feels slightly conned. lets first list the positives. Food was good, the decor and surroundings was very good, the service was OK but but not outstanding, the bar staff were good and very knowledgeable. The down side, I felt the pricing was a bit over the top, £300 for lunch and a... More

7 of us ate and partied downstairs. BBR did what it said on the tin. Food fab, service terrific, booze was amazing VFM (inc Chateau d'Yquem) and decor was stylishly glitzy. One of a kind in a very good way.

The restaurant is very Art Deco and such a fantastic ambiance and surroundings. The food was exquisite and just a continual exploding taste sensation coupled with the champagne button at the table this is probably the best restaurant I have been too. Service was fantastic and the staff could not do enough to make us feel at home. The vodka... More
