Went to a friends birthday meal and considering there was about 30 of us the standard of service and food was first class Although the meals were pre ordered they all came out at roughly the same time and everyone seemed very impressed with the quality My beef was first class I must say Recommended

Excellent food as always. We hadn't been for a few years as the budget has been tight. We decided to push the boat out and and weren't disappointed. Fantastic steaks, sublime fish dishes and veggies too all cater for to exceptionally high and consistent standards!

Had lunch here yesterday and as always was blown away by the quality of the food and excellent service. Unpretentious mushrooms to start, followed by chicken in a cherry tomato and chorizo sauce. Very generous portions and beautifully cooked. The lemon cheesecake was delicious. Lunchtime menu is an incredible bargain!

This is a great restaurant for impact and to feel indulged. The setting is reminiscent of a French wine cellar, or for the less kind member of our outing – a tube station, due to the arched roof. The food was on par – I had great expectations, which the menu and venue met but the overall experience was dampened... More

Have visited la flambé many a time and it has always been brilliant. Service has always been friendly and swift even when the restaurant is very very busy! The food is always delicious and hot!

Worst lunch out I've had in a long time. Starter was sardines - tasted fishy but that's about all that could be said for it. My main course was goujons of sea bass. They were dry, overcooked & hardly a bite of fish in each. The saute potatoes were like rocks - so overcooked there was no soft potato left... More

Not very pleasant. Food... I had monkfish tails...very nice but soggy batter. My main was steak.... nice for the first 2 minutes but then went very cold dispite hot plates. Bread... More

We visited for my son's birthday - his choice. Food is always an excellent standard, with a large choice of vegetables. Service is maintained as attentive without being intrusive.
