Great Lunch

Highly enjoyable lunch, do try the rhubarb gin and the vodka sorbet, Norwegian Cod also particularly well presented and would recommend.

I will never again go to a restaurant that appears on a "most romantic restaurant" list. The decor and menu are both very interesting but the ambience downstairs is a long way from romantic, partly because it's quite a confined space but mostly because the place does seem to appeal to a group that could only be described as "loud...

I'd been keen to try this place out for a while as I had heard lots of great things. My husbands sister's birthday seemed like a good occasion. We arrived and the staff were attentive and took my coat. We sat at the table whilst we waited for my sister in law to arrive and asked for two gin and... More

This is a fantastic place. But I have to say that the first time was better than the second time. About 1,5 year in between. In September 2015 we were back - this time placed downstairs. Somewhat it was not as well as the first time. BUT its a great place for a good dinner in London and a night... More

Our meal was lovely, staff were friendly and clearly a lot of money has been spent on the very nice, very London interior. My venison tartare could have been slightly better seasoned but my main of sole in a champagne sauce was sublime. Wine is pricey but the list is excellent. Just shy of £700 bill for 4 but we...

My lobster and burger was very delicious and fresh.My partner ordered their signature chicken pie and I must say this is the nicest pie I have ever seen.

I wanted to visit Bob Bob Ricard already two years ago but sadly they had some renovation work going on back then but this time I made sure to press for Champagne as often as I could. :-)) Love the 1920's-Great Gatsby-meets-Orient Express-Ambiente. Very friendly staff. The only downsize were the relatively small portions. Don't come hungry or press for... More

Took my wife here for our Anniversary. Whats not to like about this place. The ambience, the food.. They have nice vodka shots and you can order caviar or oysters with it. The Baked Oysters is something I have never tasted or even thought of. I was almost going to miss it.. It is too good to miss :) I... More

I've been here for dinner twice, it's simply incredible! The interiors are fantastic and whimsical, the food is incredibe and the drinks list is great. Would highly reccomend the truffle pasta, stinking bishop souffle and their signature gold orb dessert. Also, the Bellinis are great! Lots of choice and impossible not to enjoy!

The deco is ok, a bit dated. The press for champagne- novelty. Food- over cooked and not tasty. Overpriced and not a great atmosphere in general. Not what Russian food is about.

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.
