We had tickets to Jersey Boys and when looking for somewhere to eat beforehand I realised Bob Bob Ricard is just down the road. Thankfully they still had a table available when I booked!

Visited during a weekend break in London..Charged us for each basket of bread which is unusual.. Food was just ok & the waiter kept annoying us by attempting to top up our glasses of champagne until we had to tell him to stop.. Staff want you in and out as soon as possible. Won't be going back.

I had so much fun at Bob Bob Ricard. It's such an atmospheric place and theatrically designed like a dining car on an exotic train ride. I was desperate for Poirot to arrive and denounce various murderers... The food was delicious. I had some beef-tea soup and venison tartare. The portions are not big - I am fine with this... More

Ate here with a bunch of friends and we all had great meals. Mine was: lobster, crab and shrimp Pelmeni (Russian dumplings) as a starter, my partner (a coeliac) had six 'A' grade rock oysters (6 for £18 was good value), followed by crispy Pork Belly with red cabbage and apple purée (with truffle gravy) for me, and salmon tartare...

Found this place after eating at another restaurant - what a top restaurant - service is impeccable, gracious and welcoming. Only went for a soufflé as dessert! Beautiful surroundings - bit pricey but worth it for special occasion. Would save up and go again definitely.

Amazing place to go right from the outset where the doorman stands. Lively and relaxed atmosphere yet still retains the feel of elegant dining. Beautiful setting, service is efficient and not intrusive and the food was simply outstanding. Highly recommended.

My best friend and I treated ourselves to a special pre-theatre dinner at Bob Bob Ricard and we had a fantastic time. A very classy and decadent 1920’s feel throughout, with impeccable service. Excellent bellinis to start off with, some Russian food on the menu, and fantastic oysters. Not cheap, but the perfect place to splash out on a special... More

We came here for my Birthday meal out and it was fantastic. The atmosphere is amazing, like walking into the 1920s or the film set of The Great Gatsby. We were seated in the blue room and very much enjoyed the "press for champagne" feature ! The champagne was beautiful. We also sampled vodka distilled at -18 degrees, because why... More

On this return visit my expectations where high, sadly on this occasion they where not met. Firstly I arrived at 5.45 to be told the restaurant didn't open until 6pm which wasn't a big problem, I asked if I could get a drink at the bar to be told, "sorry the bar is closed until we open at 6pm" Secondly...

I came for cocktails with my partner and drank at the bar down stairs, I was not disappointed by the drinks, decor and crystal cut glasses. I returned for dinner with my sister and mum and even used the 'press for champagne button' which was a great novelty that makes you feel very special! the food is okay. its very... 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.
