A few of us visited one Sunday evening last month, all having the tasting menu.. Firstly the bread selection was nice, and foie gras amuse bouche was great.. The two wines were had were also- one being a Montrachet that was much more rounded than any we've had before.. What (slightly) let the meal down for us was the first two courses: #1 being a stick of asparagus, balsamic and goats cheese- I don't know if this was acting as a second amuse bouche but it was certainly not a worthwhile course on the menu... #2 was salmon, prawn and samphire- which was nice and refreshing- but maybe a course which would be better suited between heavier courses: by the third course we were praying for something rich and flavoursome- in comes the langoustine, which for me was the best dish, and will stay with me for a long time!
Then the foie gras came, and delivered well- although the orange curd was slightly overpowering and sweet.. We then had Brill (I think) which I remember to be very nice.. Followed by lamb which had well paired, deep flavours.. The cheesecake was very nice and the soufflé was a knockout- almost literally! At the end of the meal we were well satisfied, but it just had a slow start until the serious flavours came out!

The Square is definately an expense account (or no expense matters) sort of place. But if you are lucky enough to qualifty, then it is probably unrivalled. The food is simply a magnificent performane. Each dish so carefully prepared. Each wine going perfectly with the dish. The dining room is just the right size, enough tables to give a warmth and buzz but not so much as to be loud or to distract from the magnificent food and precise attention from the staff. There really is nothing better than a meal like this. Simply fantastic.

The tasting menu here was excellent, there was 9 courses of which the last two were deserts. If u like desert leave some room coz they were large servings! The fois gras was unbelievable, it was my favorite course, they crumbled honeycomb on top it was such a good combination.
The sommelier was very good and a lovely person to chat to, the matching wines were perfect, lots of French varieties which I love! Michelin stars are well deserved!

I went to The Square on May 14th for lunch with my partner for her birthday. It was amazing from start to finish. The service was a flawlessly executed performance in every aspect. From recommendations of food, to the sommelier, to silver service of the bread, everything spot on. The food was fantastic too. Cleanly presented, not over complicated dishes which let the food do the talking. Cooked to perfection. As a chef I always aim to be critical but this was faultless. Excellent food, service and experience. Highly recommended!
