Had lunch here which I felt was quite reasonably priced at £18 for 2 courses and £25 for 3. We opted for the Foie Gras and Velouté Parmentier Tortellini as starter and had the Guinea Fowl and Atlantic Cod as mains. No complaints on the execution of dishes as they were consistent with what you would expect from a good... More

This is the 2nd time visit of this restaurant (1st time was dinner), and I feel here is one of the best restaurant for me. For lunch, there is 25GBP 3 course, it was really worth trying. The service is just amazing. Not only 3 course menu, they provided us 2 type of small plate before starter, many kind of... More

Had Saturday lunch there with family - had been given the table in the wine cupboard - very quirky and fun - a small private room seating 4 max - would be a great choice for a romantic date. Fixed price tasting menu at £40 great value - small plates but lovely foie gras, scallops, sea bass, truffle risotto then... More

We found this after attending theater in Soho. Someone coming out of it was ectstatic about it, so we went in, knowing it was a fancier place than we had planned on, but why not try an upscale French restaurant while we were in London? It was quite late, but still the servers made us wait a requisite time. Four-course... More

I wish there was a 4.5 rating.... the meal was excellent, the wine absolutely fantastic, but I didn't really enjoy the experience as much as admire it. I was dining alone (which I love to do, usually), but was seated upstairs where it was very quiet and, frankly, the room was a mess, with no atmosphere whatsoever (if only I... More

From the moment you enter to the time you leave the entire experience was first class. The staff were extremely attentive, polite and helpful. Although there was a table of four beside me I felt that I was in the dining room by myself. Food was first class and the selection from the menu's ensures you will definitely be stuck... More

We went for lunch and had the full tasting menu, it was outstanding, the quality and taste of each course was excellent. We did not take the wine pairing that would have been too much for lunch! But the sommelier, Marco, recommended some wines by the glass which were a great match and good value. This is some of the... More

The taster menu was brilliant and the service was faultless. Not an everyday restaurant but one to visit for a special occasion or a tree for yourself.

My husband booked Gauthier as a birthday treat as part of our weekend in Soho. We had passed the restaurant a couple of times and I always stopped to look, thinking it was one of the area's many members' only clubs. This is not the case at all and the team at Gauthier do all they can to make you... More
