A family dinner for 4 was truly excellent, we all ordered different things and tried them all as we often do and every single dish was incredible. Service was fun and attentive even with us in the back corner of the club room, the atmosphere was fun, with slightly loud music not actually ruining our conversation and great entertainment. All...

Recently, I had friends come to town to see the Kate Bush concert. The night after this utterly amazing event, we had the pleasure of a reservation at Bob Bob Ricard's new club room. The atmosphere here was not quite what I expected. It is small and fairly intimate. It has a bit of an "upscale diner" sort of decor... More

My son organised a meal here as a 50th birthday celebration. The signature Rhubarb Gin and Tonic was addictive. My partner had very tasty Oysters with Venison Tartare with Quails egg - very good and fab Eton Mess I had Scallops for starters - very good with Lobster Macaroni for main. Was not disappointed. I had a refreshing sorbet for... More

Ate here with some family and friends and it certainly is an impressive place to dine at from a decor perspective. The starters were excellent, however the wine list was quite poor for a restaurant of this ambition. To start, I had the baked Champagne and Garlic Oysters and these were fantastic. They were cooked to perfection and absolutely no... More

Went for dinner with friends and was merveilleux! Not cheap but totally worth it, will be going back as a treat for a special occasion. From cocktails to wine to food to service, everything was just perfect. Was sceptical about the décor but appreciated that it kept the noise level down which is quite rare in London so we could...

I've been a couple of times now and I'd forgotten just how good it was. We had a late booking and the place was packed, so were pretty lucky to get in. Service was attentive and the food great. I had the vareniki to start - small, but different and super tasty, followed by the sea bass which was a... More

Apart from the decor of the restaurant and the attentive staff the visit to this supposedly first class restaurant left a bad taste . Portions were pathetic . Prices did not reflect the portion size or quality . When you have many more staff than customers at 7:30 / 8:00 pm on a Friday night then there is obviously something... More

We went quite late on a Saturday night and the atmosphere was great. Food was divine, the dessert amazing, all washed down with the obligatory bottle of champagne (well, you HAVE to press the button!) I was actually quite impressed with the price too, it's certainly not over priced. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

What a fabulous meal, a celebration of a certain momentous birthday, and what a celebration! The food, the service, the ambiance were second to none, and the icing on the cake just had to be the call button on the table marked 'Champagne', one press of the button and service was almost instant, the only difficulty then was choosing which...
