Diner Reviews
  • "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."
    dined on 18/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "Although the service was slightly irratic (given the wrong meal a few times) the friendliness of the staff made this go completely over our heads! Delicious food though and a very pleasant experience."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Sat outside with some friends and had the set menu. Food was good and good location for the centre of town. It wasn't entirely clear how the wine worked within the set deal so could be clearer. Like the french style decor."
    dined on 09/07/2014
  • "Great food but on this particular occasion we seemed to have received terrible service. Table not cleared, slow service and did not receive the same level of attention or serbjce as others. We did seem to be the only neglected table! The manager was very good when we first entered but after that it went downhill. Will definitely give it another chance as the food was delicious!"
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "Pleasant ambience. Food was slow to arrive but our breakfasts were fine."
    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "I had the turbot special (served with fennel and salad) and it was wonderful. Cooked to perfection and very yummy. Would definitely eat here again."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "Aubaine has a great ambience, the deal is good value, but you get what you pay for - the food is quite measly in size."
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "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. "
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "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. "
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Lunch here with friends - sat outside on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Good food and very pleasant service."
    dined on 19/05/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "Service and food were very good. Ambience was excellent."
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 09/05/2014
  • "Booked the special offer but ended up going from the main menu which wasn't that much more expensive"
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "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"
    dined on 17/04/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "We dined on 11 April. The restaurant was nicely buzzy and I loved the French décor. We waited a long time for 2 Champagne cocktails and a vodka martini. Cocktails were delicious- the vodka martini was cloudy and had bits of olive, it seemed floating in it- didn't like that. My lamb steak was beautifully cooked, my husband's lamb shoulder was rich and sumptuous. My friend's burger however, was chewy. Desserts were the star- we ordered crème brulee, almond macaroon and tarte tartin- all superb. I thought it was a well priced restaurant"
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "Set menu limited but delicious. Beware no potatoes with mains so have to add side dish which was extra. Coffee expensive £3.50 for an Americano. But lovely setting just off Regent Street. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would come again."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "I had lunch here with a friend during the week. The restaurant was not busy but the service was still poor. When we asked if we could sit outside, the waiter was very unhelpful and told us to have a look for a space ourselves. We then waited 10 minutes for a menu and we had to ask for our drinks twice. The food was fine but I don’t think I will hurry back."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "Aubaine has been springing up around town but this was the first one I was introduced to and now I'm back again with the great offer. The choices on the menu were limited and the portions small. My starter consisted of two baby leeks in a vingarette and my main of pork chop was a bit dry. The desserts are always good here so I would say it's a great lunch place especially being just off regents street."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "It is the first time I go to a French restaurant and the food is opposite of delicious. The offer on top table was an offer they have in a small menu and there was a choice of only 3 things to order. Not only the food was not tasty, I also had to rush to the toilet with the runs an hour after we left."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "I was very satisfied by the food i had that i wet back the next day to have exactly the same dishes again. Their Vinagrette is exceptional; and the port chop with tapenade and brocoli is the best i have ever tried. Service was also impecable. Extremely good value. Great to sit outside of on a sunny day. thank you. I will return."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "I was not blown away by the set menu options so went for a la carte. I had chicken paillard which was nice. My friend had salmon which unfortunately came undercooked. They offered her a free desert to make up for this which was a nice gesture. The service was very good although i think we were served by 4 different waiters!"
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "My work colleagues booked this venue for my b-day lunch. Food was excellent, service was brilliant, nice atmosphere, it wasn't to noisy so the 7 of us had a nice and comfortable chat. Music was loud enough to be heard in the background. We will definitely be going back."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Good food, good atmosphere, good service. I think i prefer the layout of the Mayfair aubaine but overall, i would of course go back. I went for an evening with a good friend of mine and we both enjoyed our time there."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Booked a table in the afternoon for dinner with my parents for later that evening, easy booking process, got a nice table in a booth despite late notice booking. Very friendly, polite and efficient service. Waiter(s) level of attention/leaving us to our meal was just right, and went out of their way to help us select the right wine, (importantly allowing us to keep the taster glasses), which was very good and not overpriced. The courses arrived in good time after ordering, with just the right amount of time between courses and with good portion sizes for each."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Had a super meal at Aubaine on Heddon Street. The food was excellent and general ambience lovely. The service was good - the staff were extremely affable and polite although they don't seem to be assigned to particular tables, so it was a little slow getting the attention when we needed it as no one person was looking after us plus it mean we got asked the same question by about 4 people in the space of 10 minutes. A small issue that can easily be fixed though. We ordered a cheese board that never arrived, but I would return and I'd also recommend it to anyone looking for a good venue in the West End."
    dined on 27/03/2014
  • "A nice location, off Regent Street. The Manager was very helpful and I enjoyed the food especially my sea bream"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "As usual, friendly greeting with impeccable and professional service. Food is tasty, deserts superb. Can't wait for the warmer weather to enjoy the outdoor seating. Heddon street Aubaine is a little Paradise."
    dined on 20/03/2014
  • "My wife's chicken Caesar salad was light on dressing but generous with chicken. Our son enjoyed his burger. My sirloin steak was meagre, the chips more so - I bought a sandwich at M&S Victoria for the train journey home."
    dined on 20/03/2014
  • "Delicious food, excellent service and brilliant value."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "A lovely welcome and dined Alfresco in the buzz of Hendon Street. Service was swift but not over rushed. The pre theatre Food choice was simple but beautifully fresh and well cooked. Nice glass of House red to accompany our choice. It is just a few minutes walk from Paladium Theatre. Additional fresh mixed breads and butter came with the starters. Salmon was exceptional, freshly grilled with fennel and caper butter. It was a light option menu great quality food only down side is probably a little on the small size for a hungry diner. Perfect for pre Theatre though."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "I booked for 11 people, and probably this is the first time they had so many people. The service was incredibly slow, inattentive, and quite disappointing really. Food is good overall, and it's a great location"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Handy location as not far from main Ox circus shops and near to theatres. Had to ask for top table menu but we found the choices good, altho not that big a selection, and good value. The ambiance is nice, as it's cosy & by candlelight. Sometimes it's hard to get the waiters attention, but overall we were happy"
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "We had a 2 course deal which was very pleasant in the restaurants outdoor area on Heddon Street which was sunny and bustling. service was slow but ok."
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "Fairly simple menu (and none the worse for that) well cooked and presented. Great value in W1"
    dined on 12/03/2014
  • "This is the second time we've been to this restaurant. The food is amazing. The service is friendly and personal, yet professional. We have dined form the set menu which has outstanding value for money and we will be returning in the future."
