“Luscious lunch”
Review of Le Gavroche

Le Gavroche
Ranked #57 of 23,023 Restaurants in London
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: French
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Special occasions, Business meetings, Romantic
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Dinner, Lunch, Delivery, Reservations
Neighborhood: Mayfair
Description: The first UK restaurant to be awarded one, two, and then three Michelin stars, Le Gavroche remains a class apart. Since opening in 1967, this Mayfair bastion of French cuisine has been very much a family affair, and chef-patron Michel Roux Jr continues the tradition today. The elegance of the menu and the ambience is impeccably tailored, while the discreet service has won its own plaudits.

Reviewed October 29, 2013

Ladies who lunch enjoyed a return visit for the tasting menu with matching wines, great food loads of flavour apart from the dessert rice pudding but the fantastic cheese selection and friendly staff made the day.......we will be back!

“Fantastic Evening”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Visited for the first time on Friday 25th October as a belated anniversary dinner with my husband. From the moment we arrived, the service was faultless - and so friendly. We chose the Menu Exceptionnal with matching wines, and a change to the dessert was made to accomodate my preferences. The whole evening was wonderful, attentive service, but not rushed, explanations on the wine& the food given at each course. All the staff to be commended, particularly Stefan with the care he took to explain why particular wines had been chosen. We met Michel Roux, who was charming and genuinely pleased that we had enjoyed our evening, happily signing our menu for us as a momento. We will certainly return.

“Fabulous from start to finish”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Right from arrival you know this is going to be excellent. Exceptional service, stunning classical food and very comfortable ambience all add up to putting this restaurant at the top of my 'must re- visit' list.
The cheese souffle was sublime, each course that followed equally good. The matched wines were knowledgeably delivered by the attentive sommelier. Can' t recommend highly enough.

“Wonderful Anniversary Meal”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I booked this restaurant as my husband is a big fan of Michel Roux Jnr. This was our second fine dining experience and we were not disappointed, with all the hype about this place we had high high expectations. We had the tasting menu with the matching wines. Both the food and wine were excellent. The service is amazing, great attention to detail. You are made to feel welcome and special. We told them it was our anniversary and were given a signed menu to take home with us. Roux jr arrived just as we were leaving so didn't have an opportunity to have a picture with him, maybe next time!!!!

“Just wonderful”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

I booked Le Gavroche as a surprise for my husband's 30th birthday, when I booked the table I advised them that this was the case and was delighted to see when we arrived that they had saved a really great table and produced a fabulous hand iced dessert at the end saying "happy birthday".
We had the Menu Exceptionnel (my husband had the wines too) and could not fault one thing; every morsel of food was perfect and the wines matched exquisitely.
The service is second to none with our server adjusting the menu for me (being pregnant) with no qualms at all.
Meeting Michel Roux Jnr at the end of the meal was a lovely surprise - he clearly takes pride in his business and took the time to go round every table.
The atmosphere, staff, food, wine and whole experience is something that either of us will forget. We've been lucky enough to dine in several fantastic restaurants but I don't think anything will ever quite match this. If you are looking for somewhere for a special occasion, this is the place.
