Every dish we had was a new culinary experience. We were constantly amazed at the tastes and flavours!
Setting was a bit formal; service was very good; and food was truly excellent!

I have been several times at the Ledbury and it is always a unique experience: great food and wine, great service, reasonable pricing for this quality...

What can I say that hasn't already been said? After a peaceful walk through the Notting Hill area, this corner restaurant met and exceeded my expectations. Attentive and warm service despite a full lunch seating. You felt you were in a friend's home rather than 'pish posh' place because of the smiles all around.

The outstanding quality of food was a foregone conclusion. Really reflects Chef Graham. I had asked about the grapes that came with my cheese platter as they were absolutely delicious and I didn't expect another helping of these divine grapes!

As dessert came, we were again surprised with an additional serving of tasting portions of 3 other desserts on the house! They were sublime.

The last hit was an invitation to head down to the kitchen to meet the chef. Being the foodie I am, this was a dream! Chef Graham was friendly, down-to-earth, no airs at all. You could hear the passion in his voice and see it in his eyes. To think this small kitchen with his small team could churn out such world class and remarkable food is utterly amazing.

I would love to visit The Ledbury again and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend others as well.

This restaurant is in residential Notting Hill and does not have a bar. Therefore, if you show up early like I did, hoping to kill an hour or so in the bar, there is simply no place to go, nor are there any other places nearby. I was sort of left to wander the pleasant, leafy streets of Notting Hill until the actual time of my reservation.

In any case, the restaurant delivered what was expected - a memorable dining experience. I had the chef's menu with wine and some of the courses were mackerel, quail, Cornish turbot, beef, all outstanding and each better than the one before. The bread they start you with and the salty butter are great also.

I won't say that it is as good as Petrus or Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, but it is definitely a close third. They treated me well as a solo diner and this was a meal I will remember for a very long time. I can also say that they are very generous with the wine pairings, with perhaps 50% more during the course of the meal than I had gotten at Petrus. Definitely got my money's worth on that end and might have even been stumbling a little bit on my way out.

I can say it was a dreamy experience for this one. The food, ambience and cocktails were impeccable. It was my first experience and not the last one for sure.
