Bob Bob Richard is a fine dining restaurant which I have to say that one of the reason I choose this restaurant was for the "Champange Button"! The decor is beautiful, atmospher is very good, the booth's are very cozy & that champange button is brilliant, what could be better. Our server was very friendly, never felt rushed through our...

This is definitely a fine dining restaurant. the ambience is great in the restaurant - most seats are in nice cosy booths - all equipped with a deadly champagne button - press the button and glasses of champagne are whisked to your table! Food is very good - the only thing that let me down was the dessert which was... More

I was mainly going for the novelty of their infamous "Press for Champagne" button (which was great fun), but was more than pleasantly surprised by the food which was absolutely delicious. Going to have to go back for dessert as they looked incredible but I was just too full after my tasty champagne, chicken & mushroom pie (and chips). Four... More

This excellent restaurant is transported to my favourites list purely for the absolutely stonking art deco interiors. Magnificent in every detail and a visual feast that also works as a restaurant space. Leaving that aside, there was excellent service and delicious food in a pleasant lazy-Sunday-lunch atmosphere. Premium but not obscene prices. Brilliant cocktails and seriously classy desserts. A special... More

I visited Bob Bob Ricard with my wife on Sunday 15th March for dinner. I was really looking forward to this experience after reading and hearing many reviews. Our experience was that the restaurant decor was good, the food matched the decor but for fine dining the whole 3 course meal was over in just over an hour which was... More

Had the Great Gatsby taken the Oriental Express to visit Margaritka (aka Daisy had she been Russian), this is how he would have dined. He would have walked into this softly lit room, and sat at one of the very private, four persons booth (though he would probably be sitting alone considering his lacking social skills, you should definitely bring...

I would pay any price for incredible food trust me. I loved this place: the decor, the atmosphere, the staff. You feel like you're eating in a Orient Express booth! I had the crab salad which was divine, then the lobster mac and cheese! Incredible!!! I just think the drinks and sides are overpriced. A bottle of water is £5... More

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.
