    The set menu is well priced but the room was freezing as the door was open the whole evening, and the staff were equally as frosty. Shame as the location is good, but I would not return - unless a change in staff was implemented.

    The food was delicious although there weren't many gluten free options. I had mentioned on my booking that I had to have gluten free food but there was nothing on the set menu I could have. I was able to choose from the A la carte and the food was really good, but it would have been nice to have been able to have chose from the deal I'd booked for. I also think if you put on the booking that you're gluten free that some bread should be offered that you can eat, or olives offered instead, but I would recommend this restaurant as the staff were helpful, it had a nice ambience and the food is good.

    Had a delightful lunch here on their special menu, after visiting the Royal Academy. The food was fresh, attractively served and delicious. The Pork Terrine as a starter tasted subtle and a little spicy, the salad starter was very fresh and attractively arranged. The main course fish was delicious. The wine was well priced and the service friendly and attentive without being intrusive. My first vist but not my last.

    I visited Aubaine for the 2 course and glass of wine special. The food was fantastic and great value for the money, the main of Mackerel was particularly delicious! The ambiance of the restaurant was also lovely but it was all spoilt by the rude and inattentive staff. We waited over 10 mins after being sat down to be given the correct menu and when we asked for the set menu the waiter rolled his eyes at us! It was another 10 mins before anyone came back to take out drinks and food order. When the food was brought out none of the 4 waiters plus Head of House came to ask if everything was OK. I can appreciate that the attentiveness of the staff may lack when a restaurant has a packed service but the place was only a quarter full.

    Having been captivated by Aubaine's French boulangerie for several months, my partner and I decided to dine at their Heddon Street restaurant after galavanting around Green Park and took advantage of their Autumn offer: 2 courses & glass of wine £16.50. I highly recommend this as the selected menu still offers a wonderful range of choices and all topped off with an agreeable glass of wine.

    We met here for a girls lunch, the staff were friendly and let us choose our table but after that service was really inconsistent. It took ages to order drinks, we then ordered food which took ages to arrive, and when we tried to order further drinks after eating, by which time we had moved outside, it took 3 reminders and about 20 minute before they arrived. The food itself was delicious and the staff weren't rude, they just seemed out of their depth - perhaps it was just a bad day. The restaurant was not full though so goodness knows what would have happened if it was!

    The atmosphere was great! However the quality of food was uninspiring and the service was on the poor side. Although we booked, the table was not ready for us even though it is a low peak time before 6. Wrong drinks were brought to our table (when there are only few tables occupied) and the steak and fries was tiny. Felt sorry for the guys that ordered it.

    Visited Aubaine for a midweek supper with a friend and had the set menu option. This would have represented great value if the food has been something we had enjoyed. However cheap a meal is, you can't help but to feel ripped off when you feel you could have made better at home. My soup tasted decidedly like Heinz tinned soup and was boiling hot in the centre and cold on top leading me to think it had been microwaved. My friends duck salad consisted of 99% lettuce and 1% duck and our mains of goats cheese penne were oily, bland and dry. With the competition from other eateries on Heddon St, I would have expected them to up their game, or at least serve decent food to entice me back to revisit or try the ala carte menu.

    You will be attracted by the set menu offer pricing (which is not exclusive to TT). But upon arrival when you see the set menu it does not give a great spread of variety / options (eg grilled sardines for main, or butternut and broad bean salad for starter) and you will most likely defer to the main a la carte menu, which has very good variety. Food was good, though the 'truffle mash' side doesn't have any truffle in it that anyone could spot - even the waitress agreed it was a bit suspect when we raised it, but wasn't taken off the bill. However overall its a good place with fresh ambience and very tempting desserts.

    The waiter greeted us luck he knew us. The restaurant had all of the doors open on a hit summer evening and we were immediately offered cool water whilst the menu was described in depth to us- this included pictures of each item on the waiters phone. He gave us excellent recommendations too. The food was very fresh and the wine was cooled to perfection! We can't wait to go back and have another crack at the summer menu as it changes every week!

    Busy location and lively atmosphere with friendly staff but chaotic service. When my starter arrived there was a long dark hair in the mozzarella. The waiter apologised and said they would replace it straight away. So my partner waited with his food in front of him for 10 minutes. When it came the portion of mozzarella was tiny but at least it was hair free. The main courses were also very small portions, I was surprised when the bill arrived I had been charged for the hairy mozzarella but unfortunately we didn't have time to argue so we paid the bill and left. There is a distinct lack of good customer service at Aubaine.as an apology did not compensate for a ruined meal. Very disappointing evening and would definitely not recommend.

    A nice place to catch up with friends or for a romantic meal. I had dinner; smoked salmon salad which was tasty and then the fish goujons which were a little bland on the inside. The dessert menu is varied and the chocolate eclair definitely hits the spot! The drink of the month( elderflower fizz) was very good too.

    Five waiters came to our table; offering the incorrect food and drinks as they were confused as to which table they were meant to bring it to; salmon came for my friend and they asked if I had ordered a main dish as they didnt cook it!? Had to wait another 15 mins before bringing along my lamb. Absolutely chaotic service that I have not experienced anywhere else. Stick to allocated waiters to a set number of tablea please. The walnut salad was bland, and the mains were also of average quality. Disappointed, and will not be coming back to Aubaine.

    Maybe the food here is better if one chooses from the a la carte menu rather than the opentable offer... I know I've had good coffee and cakes from other branches of Aubaine. What we had here was very poor, no point in saying anything else about it. I will not go back or recommend to others. Only positive thing I ca say is that the staff were all lovely.

    A friend and I had dinner at Aubaine, taking advantage of their special deal which is really good value for money. It was a lovely evening with people sitting on the terrace and all the French windows in the restaurant wide open and as the restaurant is on a pedestrian street, no need to worry about car fumes!

    Service is a little mad. The waiter seems have trouble to remember orders. A pack of salad for a couple of pounds from Tesco wouldn't be worse than the starter it served. The reason I gave 3 start is for the fish main course which was nice and the outdoor seating.

    The Aubaine in Heddon Street is a good venue on a warm evening with outside seating. The opentable table menu offers three choices for each course. The starter salad had some interesting flavours, particularly the pickled fig. Unfortunately wheat free bread isn't offered which is a pity for the growing number of people who don't eat wheat or gluten. The mackerel had finished and salmon offered as an alternative sitting on a tasty ratatouille. The gnocchi was delicious. The service was wry slow on this busy Friday evening but luckily we were not in a hurry.

    I went here on a Thursday evening before going to the theatre. Part of the reason I chose this place was partly for their 2 courses offer which I have enjoyed at so many other Open Table restaurants. It was very poor to be honest. 3 poor starter options and only 2 mains. The standard wasn't great either. I also take issue with any restaurant that makes it difficult to have tap water on the table. They apparently only have one jug for the whole of the restaurant and due to less than attentive service we only managed to get one small glass. Also on service I had to chase them so I could order a second bottle of wine. The service in general was nowhere to be seen most of the time either.

    Restaurant is sweet/romantic looking. Starters were good, main was quite bland. Staff were very nice but seemed to forget about us after our mains. We had to ask for the dessert menu 30 mins later. Good job we were having good conversation. Other than that it was a pleasant place to eat. Would go back again.

    Lovely and vibrant atmosphere. Good food and wine. The only criticism is please make sure if you have an offer you specify to the waiter as we received a large glass of wine and the offer was only for a small glass of house wine and luckily we didn't have to pay extra as we said that the waiter should have confirmed what was included in the offer and should not have offered expensive wine. Great place to hang out with friends.

    The 2-course deal menu had a very limited choice of courses. Also the food was just ok, compared to other restaurants in the same price category where I've had excellent gastronomic experiences. I had a tomato and pomegranate salad that was just sour and watery. The mains were not outstanding either. The interior was nice and light though, so it is a nice place to sit and chat.

    A friend and i were going to the theatre and rather than have dinner at a chain restaurant thought we would look at the reviews and offers available. Aubaine came up, the location was perfect so we thought we would give it a try. The set offer menu was really limited and i think that a lot of customers would struggle to choose a dish. We however are not fussy, the watercress soup was lovely and bread was supplied with the starters. For the main we chose the fish which was tasteless and served with springonion and sweetcord which was really odd. In hindsight I would have paid more attention to the description of the dishes and would not have chosen this dish. Will not return

    Not my first time at Aubaine, but first time for lunch. Needed a restaurant last minute and Aubaine, Dover Street was booked for lunch. Heddon Street is a good alternative location with a reasonable menu choice, but service is yet again too lack-lustre. Yet again, I left wanting.. and actually could not wait to finish and get away - just felt uncomfortable - again!
