I was lucky enough to share this experience with a colleague originally from Toulouse and apart from the non-French speaking waiter, almost everything worked very well indeed.
We had the evening tasting menu, with wine pairing, the full works so to speak and paid £90 each plus the ubiquitous "service charge" that in England seems to only be prevalent in London
So from the Amuse Bouche to the Marmite ice cream, it was beautifully served, every course explained in depth, the wine poured by a superb sommelier who really did know his stuff and was very enthusiastic and took time not only to explain but to engage and compare. he enjoyed talking to my partner for the evening too, who knew several of the wines.
It was South West France regional which may put some people off, so lots of goose based dishes. Not everyone worked perfectly however, that isn't a criticism of the food, rather my taste. The fois gras in consomme I didn't get at all for example. I also got a little lost at the end with several pudding courses arriving, the above mentioned marmite ice cream was underwhelming (too small) but all in all, loved the majority of it.
They also do a much more reasonable priced evening meal during the week too at about £30, if you like genuine French cooking, as opposed to faux French, try it, especially lunch and special menu offers which are really good value.
We went on a Thursday evening - it was quite busy but not entirely full. I did get several calls making sure I was coming though - not something I'd experienced before - is this another London thing?
