    Four of us had dinner at Charlotte's. We were in the downstairs eating area. It was pleasantly decorated but warm and stuffy. It seemed to lack ventilation. The staff were pleasant and efficient. Water and excellent bread arrived regularly and without extra charge. As for the food, the author's scallop ceviche was eye catching but bland and overly sweet to taste. The venison was OK but again with a very sweet sauce. Cold rice pudding with plums for dessert: excellent. Overall, the menu could be simpler and the flavours more intense. The fixed price for three courses was reasonable. I am not sure I would return simply (and probably irrationally) because I did not like the downstairs eating area. There is a smaller upstairs one as well.

    We have been to Charlotte's Place before, but not for a long time and it was as good as we remembered. Lovely cosy atmosphere downstairs while also being modern and fresh. Food was really good, with a small but wide ranging menu, all our dishes were very good. Nice touch with still or sparkling tap water on the house, which was refreshed all evening without having to ask. Friendly well informed staff. Reasonable prices, good value for money.

    I still think this is the best restaurant in west London. One imagines it would be a bit stiff, but it's actually very relaxed, friendly, and a real joy to visit. The food is sublime, and if you take the Early Diner offer, superb value for money.

    We had the early diner 3 courses. Very good as usual. The food is quite rich so we don't have extra sides usually.We didn't like the menu choice as much as previous offerings, but the food was still interesting and well presented. It looked like downstairs could do with a lick of paint in places, but furnishings in good condition. Service was good.

    Had a great Saturday lunch. Set menu is a bargain. Menu is imaginatively prepared and dishes exquisitely flavoured. Special diets are expertly catered for. Wines also good though a bit pricey. Eating at outside tables are lovely when the weather allows. Big thanks to Jamie and all the staff!

    Lovely restaurant which we go to now and then for special occasions. Food is always lovingly prepared, and there is always an outstanding dish - in this case there was a delicious duck leg pie. Service is also always excellent. We'd go every weekend if we didn't want to spoil it as a treat! The early diner is especially good value - £26.95 for three courses and an aperitif.

    What an amazing restaurant this is, a real find. It feels very local as it is away from the high street. The menu is small but everything looks interesting and appetizing so easy to choose. Having three courses for £32 is great, gives you free rein to just go for it! Dessert incredible.

    I took my girlfriend here for a birthday meal and was extremely pleased to recieve a very original and well thought out meal at a reasonable price for its high quality. The venue was lovely and made great use of mirrors and natural light to make quite a small dining area seem spacious. I would advise sitting upstairs as the basement area did not appear to have the same atmosphere (from the look of it that is, I didn't eat down there). There was a 12 or so percent service charge added to the bill (which can be removed) but the service was very good so I didn't mind, it did obviously increase the price unexpectedly though. All in all we had an excellent experience and I would definitely recommend it for a special occasion.

    We had the lunch menu and really enjoyed the neck of lamb with sweetbreads, absolutely delicious. Our dessert, the almond and apricot sponge with burnt honey cream was sensational! Great value with 2 bottles of complimentary water, choice of still or sparkling. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff friendly and extremely helpful.

    We went for lunch in the week and the food was amazing. It was very good value for money especially as they give you free carbonated water. The service was good and it was nice to be asked for feedback at the end of the meal. This showed they valued our opinion and are keen to impress and continue to get even better. I would highly recommend the chips! They are lovely and crispy. The desserts were also lovingly prepared and absolutely delicious. Can't wait for our next visit!

    A disappointing experience, mainly due to our table being situated in the basement, with bench seating and for most of the time we were the only customers there. Service lacked professionalism. On the positive side food and wine was good, but the meal was overpriced in relation to the overall experience.

    This is the second time I have visited the restaurant and been disappointed by the food. It has all the right ingredients - literally and figuratively - of being a great restaurant, but fails to deliver on the plate. I've heard decent things and read positive reviews, but my own experience has sadly not lived up to it. The location is nice, but there is better food elsewhere.

    A very nice meal but rather expensive. Nice to find a different range of dishes on the menu instead of the same old choices you can get anywhere. Service was very good and the dishes were nicely presented.One pleasant surprise was that the sparkling water was complimentary.Only one choice of beer on offer was disappointing.Overall would recommend a visit.

    We celebrated a birthday and decided for Charlotte's Place through recommendation. We booked online and received confirmation and reminders including a call, so no real chance to miss the date. We enjoyed food and atmosphere quite a lot and would definitely return for special occasions. A little special attention gesture though towards the birthday child would have been the finishing touch.

    The last time we ate at Charlottes Place we thought the food was excellent. This time around it was OK. Somehow none of the courses quite hit the spot - none were bad - its just they were all a bit average. The wine was good - although I thought prices had gone up considerably since my last visit. At least 2 dishes on the menu were off or had changed. All in all it felt like it was not one of the restaurants better nights. It won't stop us returning though.
