Not impressed

Chez Gerard is usually OK for a mid priced brasserie style meal, usually brisk service, bistro classic food, lively atmosphere. We have been to this one three times now and found the food below average, off hand staff, a rather expensive for what you get. Not planning to go back.

Was served chips as a side with a set down dinner. Beef was chewy. Disappointed. Thought this place was going to be very nice.

Out all day, wanted a place close in for dinner before the theatre and since it is in the Station thought we would try it. Service was slow and our choice of food was just mediocre. We probably would not go back unless we were in a time constraint.

My partner and I went there in September 2010, food okay, but very bad service. After 20 mins of our main course we had to call a waitress to take our coffee order,no apologies or if we wanted a dessert. I sent 2 emails and a letter saying we were not satisfied with service, but go not reply. When I... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend, choosing it mainly for its location. As a starter we both had oysters, and couscous and fish respectively as the main course. Unfortunately we both got quite sick the following day, and as this was the only meal we shared, the conclusion can only be that the oysters were bad. Subsequently I sent... More

Neighborhood Profile
Belgravia
Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic residences in London, sophisticated and upscale Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw away to the north, and some of Europe’s best shopping is nearby as well.
