More than the famed champagne button

I'd heard about the famed champagne call button at your booth (who hasn't) so Saturday afternoon late lunch beckoned and I was prepared for a cosy afternoon centred around a cocktail of two. How wrong was I. The comfy Art Deco meets Russian glitz interior was welcoming as were the waiters. A warm... read more

Visited with work colleagues to celebrate success. I'd not heard of the place - wish I'd been before. I think it's safe to say that not only did I enjoy my food, but on a table of 14 of us I'd have eaten every dish I saw! I wish I'd ordered the beef Wellington - next time. We pressed the... More

I was there with my friend for a dinner.Tried oyster, Wellington and choclate glory for dessert. All was great with highest quality standards. I liked the professional staff as well.Try the coctails at the downstair bar if you visit that restaurant.

Visited this restaurant with my fiancé on a sunday afternoon. Everything from the service to the food was amazing. We loved the art deco interior and that every one sat in booths. Peach and strawberry bellini was lovely and the strawberries and cream soufflé was one of the best desserts I have eaten in any city and in any restaurant.... More

Perfect venue to celebrate being in an exciting city. Beautifully decorated, attentive staff, tasty meals and lovely champagne (& cocktails). Wonderfully romantic and posh place to end the day and start the evening. An enjoyable evening through and through!

I loved this place, especially the quirky decor and 'push for champagne' button. The service here is spot on too. I had a crab salad starter which was delicious and the fillet of beef. Everything tasted superb although my only criticism would be that the meat was too well done for my liking...if I went back i would ask for... More

Visited Bob Bob Ricard this week with two friends. Had seen the restaurant mentioned in an article and wanted to find an excuse to visit - the 'press for champagne' button was too tempting! Enjoyed the experience from start to finish! Decor and branding are fantastic, extremely classy and quite unique; food was interesting and very good quality, it was... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
