Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "We took our friends here as a wedding present and it did not disappoint. Excellent food and very good value, the staff were extremely friendly and were able to recommend drinks and dishes."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "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."

    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "Overall the restaurant is great, I just recommend to make sure you book a table on ground level not the basement room. It's nicer."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Attended with family visiting from aboard, with six of us sitting we were able to order most dishes on the menu and didn't leave disappointed. I had the duck which was delicious but all the plates came beatifully presented and received great reviews"

  • "Excellent service and value - great food - thoroughly enjoyable"
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "We had the early dinner 3 course and an aperitif menu. Everything was delicious. Great flavour combinations and the wait staff were attentive but not overpowering. We sat outside soaking up the evening sun and view of the park. A great evening :-)"
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "If you want a good meal in a restaurant overlooking a quiet common in london look no further"
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 17/07/2014
  • "four of us had a lovely meal, facing the common. Service was very attentive. Food was excellent - each of us cleared our plates. Nice of portions just right."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "Charlotte's is always a superb dining experience. The menu is always excellent, and the staff are friendly and attentive."
    dined on 29/06/2014
  • "Service and food very good and one waitress remembered us from our previous visit, about 6 weeks ago. She even remembered what we had eaten for our main course!"
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "The few tables outside almost feel like you are in a village as they are next to Ealing common which was lovely. Food was great but mains were small small portions. Don't go thinking one course, or two courses would be enough!"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Had a great lunch here for my husband's birthday. The food was great and the portion sizes just right. Good selection of food and drinks and excellent service. They even put a little candle in my husband's dessert! Faultless as usual"
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "A special place with efficient friendly staff who went the extra mile ensuring clear explanation of dishes and checking replacements when something was not suitable(dietary or taste wise). Have been before, and so pleased we have such a gem of a place locally, so was happy to use when had overseas visitors."
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "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. "
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "Charlottes Place offers a beautiful setting, fantastic food and excellent service - every time. The early dinner offer makes it outstanding value for money as well."
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. It's the best restaurant in Ealing!"
    dined on 06/06/2014
  • "Another lovely Sunday lunch overlooking the Common. Service and food an absolute delight. Never fails to impress. A gem in Ealing. "
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "I have had lunch and dinner several times as local residents but every time their food never dissapoint me. Lunch is good deal and love the ground floor seating with the common's green view. "
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "We took some customers for dinner at Charlotte's Place. The service and food was fantastic. I will certainly use them again for customer dinners but would also go for a non- business dinner too. "
    dined on 28/05/2014
  • "Overall this was a pleasant experience. We were seated downstairs which was quite a cramped noisy environment - the presence of quite a large group exacerbated the noise level! The food was superb, our only complaint being it was very salty - two diners, both main courses. Service was good, and the offer of free still or sparkling water a nice touch. "
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "We were seated by 1.30 p.m. No gluten free menu. There was only one Waiter and the service was slow. We waited a long time for the Waiter to take our orders and then another long wait. The first course was well presented and good. Another very long wait, I had Roast Lamb. It was adequate. My guests had Pork Belly which they enjoyed but found the platters on which it was served very unsuitable. They have a very wide rim and a deep basin into which the cutlery disappeared when released with the result that they had to clutch very greasy cutlery. They have an abysmal choice of coffees and no soya milk. It was now 3.20 p.m. Most of the time spent waiting. "
    dined on 22/05/2014
  • "Great value - food was great, service excellent The banana cake dessert is wonderful "
    dined on 20/05/2014
  • "Great food. Sat outside, as a result we had no salt and pepper on our table though? And never got ketchup we'd asked for. Just minor details though, and from someone working in hospitality. Great place to go for a relaxing lunch. Sadly no sign of reservation note's having been read as had requested (cheekily) to have candle put on one of the desserts for birthday guest. Despite reading other reviews suggesting they have done this in the past. That being said, would definitely go again. Nice view of the park when outside, and nice to find somewhere within walking distance."
    dined on 20/05/2014
  • "No complaints at all. Paid £26 for 3 course meal plus an aperitif of your choosing. High quality place but at the same time not fussy or pretentious. Simple decor in a really beautiful location in Ealing common. Has tables outside facing the common which is a great option on a hot day. "
