    Unfortunately the restaurant had gone into receivership and had shut down when I arrived to lunch with my guest! Very disappointed this wasn't picked up by TopTable.

    I arranged a dinner through your site, and had it confirmed, at a restaurant that was closed when we arrived. That's horrible and wrecked our evening.

    This is a Report. We booked a table at Le Suquet through you, Toptable, on 16 October for Friday 26 October. We also had an automated reminder from you two days before the dinner. Impressive? Not as it seemed. We got to the venue on the date only to find Le Suquet had gone to receivership and was officially closed down on 23 October. I hoped not very many diners booked at Le Suquet through you via the net. I will not do so again.

    The restaurant is not spacious but food tastes very well and service is outstanding. The place is not shiny or posh but a very quiet and good for catching up with friends. The prices make sense for a restaurant in Chelsea.

    Last minute booking for a business meeting where a participant had requested a fish restaurant. As it turned out on a Monday lunchtime we were the only clients. Food was acceptable but not memorable. Dover sole was slightly overcooked.

    The menu was very good with great choices especially the Entrees. The bread baskets had white and brown bread and was kept topped up. The only drawback was the wine selection which was all Frence and any wine we asked for was not in stock. Apart from that, the meal and service was really good and would definitely return

  • Best Shellfish in years!
    Scrummy
    Dined on 17/8/2012
    My Mum and I enjoyed a superb lunch last week at Le Suquet, sharing a shellfish platter with some of the creamiest mussels, oysters and crab washed down with some ice cold Chablis. The attention to detail and character of the two Waiters serving us made the lunch all the more enjoyable. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, dessert arrived - delicious. The restaurant is bright and airy without being cold - comfortable seating, nautical theme and large tables with plenty of space from other diners - we will definitely return.

    Dined on 29/6/2012
    ...and still just like being on the quayside in Cannes but I do wonder if simple provencale cooking needs to cost this much. £150 for lunch for two with an inexpensive wine is pushing it. The restaurant was empty at 14:15 on a Friday indicating others without the sentimental attachment to the place that I have may be going elsewhere. That said, if it's simple fresh seafood you crave; it still has great appeal.

    DuccioVIP
    Dined on 12/5/2012
    I went in with a menu offer of £19 - the food was more than average, definitely not worth it. And on top of it they added themselves a £10 extra tip (they added it themselves when paying with the card machine) when the service was already included and came out with a £75 bill. Will never go back to that place!

    There were only three other tables with diners when we arrived and one when we left so there was no atmosphere. As such the manager decided to put on music - tecno dance music, in a french fish restaurant?! The food was very average and expensive. I shall not be returning.

  • Le Suquet is nothing short
    ScottishFoodLover
    Dined on 30/3/2012
    Le Suquet is nothing short of fantastic, a family run French restaurant tucked away in the corner of Draycote Avenue. I was super impressed with the quality of the seafood, and the perfect service that came along with it. The owner has got a great sense of humor and really makes you feel welcome. A little on the pricey side but certainly worth it for a special occasion. A real piece of France in London, highly recommended !!!

    Le Suquet's Fish Soup was excellent good value at £19 for the set menu and the house wine reasonable . Service was swift, perhaps a little hurried for those that like to take their time over dinner.

    Food was nice, service was grumpy French, which is Ok if you like that sort of thing.There was something floating in my wine which they were a bit weird about changing it. We also got charged a cover change and 15% service. Restaurant was very quiet when we arrived which was a little awkward.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 26/2/2012
    Had a pleasant afternoon at Le Suquet. 6 of us had 2 courses for £15, but beware of ordering wine/deserts which are all quite overpriced. Food was average, limited choice and small portions. Service started off well but the waiter was put out when we asked to pay the bill on 3 different cards - a bit cheeky as they charged 15% service charge! There was no atmosphere at all as we were the only table in the whole restaurant, but nevertheless it was fine for a casual Sunday lunch.

    3 course TT menu at le Suquet is reasonable value, tasty although unchanging and coupled with high drinks prices and although service is friendly and attentive the 15% service charge stings somewhat.

    Food was good (fish was perfectly cooked), service was nice and polite, but quite slow (took a long while to be given water, place an order, pay the bill, though the food came quickly once ordered). I would recommend this as a place for well cooked French food, but be prepared to wait for some things.
