A word from Petrus
Petrus' modern French menu combines classic flavours with exquisite presentation. Guests can choose from 500 wines expertly guided by the Head Sommelier. The modern, light interiors of Pétrus have been designed by the acclaimed Russell Sage Studio, who have used a gentle palette of oyster, soft silver and copper tints, as well as dashes of the famous Pétrus claret red throughout the room. Up to six guests can sit at the Pétrus Chef's Table for an unparalleled view of all the action in the kitchen.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We dined at Petrus our first night in London because we had heard so many positive things about it and wanted to have a great dining experience. We'll we were not disappointed. The room is very well done, the service is well coordinated and exceptional and the food just amazing. They also have an excellent wine list and the staff know their wines. One of the best dining experiences we have ever had and we have dined at some great restaurants all over the world for over 40 years. We will dine at Petrus every time we are in London. Bob and Cathy Smith"

  • "There are low food selection and low variety. The price is quite high from what you get. The size of the main course is very small. Three course meal won't make you full. Compare the price to other michelin star and many high reputation restaurants, this one is a bit rip off. Some dishes taste normal, not brilliant."

  • "Petrus did not dissapoint, the food and service were fantastic. This was our first visit and we will definetly be coming back. If I had one small piece of constructive feedback it would be that the tables are too close together, I would have expected a little more space for fine dining."

  • "We were celebrating our sons 21st birthday and we had a really excellent evening . The food and staff were all excellent and made our visit welcoming and special . I have to say at £65 a head for this quality of food i thought was very good value for money. We selected a £60 NZ Sauvignon Blanc which was excellent and also had two glasses of the house red which was excellent value for money and a really good wine. Thank you Petrus for making this a fantastic evening John McCallion"

  • "Incredible evening, pricey but worth it, every single thing was incredible and service was so on point. Even kindly brought a petit four to the table with a candle for the birthday girl after mentioning birthday in passing. Gorgeous."

  • "Booked Petrus to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the food, service and whole evening was just great. Pleasantly surprised that one of us could choose the tasting menu, and one of us ate from the a la carte. The chocolate phere dessert to finish was delicious. We finished the evening off with a look at the kitchens and on our next visit would like to experience the kitchen table. We would highly recommend a visit to Petrus."

  • "We had a 3 course lunch from the set menu and all three options on the list were very temptinng. The standard menu looked great so I would definitely try some other dsihes next time"

  • "This was our second time at Petrus and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. If I had any criticism it would be that there was too long of a wait to get our bottle of wine after we ordered or any bread on the table. The promised "amuse bouche" took a very long time to arrive. We were sitting there quite awhile without anything but water. They didn't seem to be that busy either so we could not understand why. After the meal when it was time for tea and coffee, again a long wait. It was more than just having a nice relaxing time between courses..........there was just the 2 of us and we did not do the tasting menu but we were there from 6:45 until 10:45!"

  • "An excellent overall experience at lunch: food, wine and service all top quality."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "I must say that this is the best restaurant I have ever been too. The service was beyond 1st class and the food excellent. My only gripe was the knifes were not appropriate for the food served making it very difficult to cut the vegetables (leeks)"
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "From the service and personalized-attention, to the beautifully prepared delicacies, each plate was a masterful work of art. I have never been so impressed by the time paid to even the smallest detail. We were not rushed, and given the luxury of enjoying each course; from the initial presentation of a masterful plate to our first sublime taste of the complex flavours and ingredients. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a true gastronomic experience."
    dined on 04/07/2014
  • "Was a weekday lunch. We had the tasting menu. Fantastic from start to finish. We chose the signature wine pairing. The sommelier was exceptional as was the service all round. One of the best experiences I have had."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "I found this restaurant average. The bad: The ambiance was non-exsistant, very sterile. It was a beautiful hot day outside but the air-conditioning made the restaurant fridge-like and uncomfortably chilly which spoiled the whole experience in part. The service was very good if not too formal - no smiles or friendly interaction. The good: The dessert was possibly one of the best I have tried in London. Do go and try the salted caramel donuts, AMAZING. I would recommend going simply for them alone. We had the set lunch menu for £35 for three courses - fantastic value for a michelin starred restaurant."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Petrus and it won't be our last ! The service was impeccable, the food amazing. The whole experience was one to remember"
    dined on 01/07/2014
  • "The food at Petrus is unquestionably worth its Michelin star, with every course on the Chef's menu feeling perfectly balanced and a special treat. Even unannounced courses like the amuse bouche (minted pea veloute with marscapone) served to enhance the experence. Particular highlights were the foie gras parfait - possibly my favourite starter ever - and the chocolate sphere with honeycomb. Fittingly, these opened and concluded the meal, respectively. Overall, I would rank Petrus as my second favorite meal ever, coming behind Pollen Street Social (run by Jason Atherton, a former Ramsay protege). At Pollen Street, food was more imaginative, and service a little more at ease and comfortable. However, I will definitely be returning here."
    dined on 30/06/2014
  • "We have eaten here a number of times, in fact was our favorite London restaurant. However, this time it was awful. Starter was almost cold, tasteless and mine had bones in the chicken wings. I would have forgiven but my main turned up and was again not hot, it was fatty, tasteless and again had bones in it (Ox Cheek). My wife had duck and it came with a semi warm 1/2 lettuce, who thought that was gastronomic? We then decided to leave as this was as disappointing a meal as I can remember. We were then told the whole team was changing - and it showed! Not going again. However the front office team did mange the situation professionally."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Visited Petrus for lunch the other day - it was not our first visit but Petrus never fails to make each time special. We had most of the set lunch, just deviating at the end for an alternative dessert. The staff at Petrus are so attentive and friendly, the lunchtime ambience just right with small groups enjoying each other's company to couples quietly celebrating and the food never fails to deliver on presentation or taste. We will be back undoubtedly."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "We dined at Petrus on 27th June. Absolutely cannot fault the service - all of the staff are incredibly attentive, polite and knowledgeable. Ask any questions and you will get a detailed response and good recommendations for both food and wine. Everything is served in a way that makes it feels special, regardless of how big or small the course, and the presentation is wonderful. We were slightly underwhelmed by the cos lettuce side that came with the duck, but the meat was cooked beautifully, and this was more a poor menu choice on our part given what we like to eat. The flavours in the rabbit starter were lovely, and my husband loved the chocolate sphere for dessert. A lovely place to spend the evening and wonderful staff."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • " The chef was very accomodating and made a dish not on the menu which was great(ordred 3 weeks in advance). The venue was beautiful but the first impression started our night on a sour note, when my wife arrived early and one of the workers scoffed at her when she asked to wait inside before they where open (the manager allowed it). The wine list was extensive and the selection was good but there was little or shal I say no assistance in making a decision based on the order. If I had to rate them (comparing them to other Gordon Ramsey restaurants) they would get an 8 for the food and a 4 for service. I intend on going back to see if it was just an off night."
    dined on 23/06/2014
  • "Excellent food. Extraordinary wine choices, but only on the rather expensive side. Discretely classy. Friendly, helpful staff."
    dined on 23/06/2014
  • "Staff very welcoming and efficient. Made to feel special, definitely an experience we will not forget! Was my partners birthday and had a chocolate and candle which was a lovely touch! We only had £35 set menu and a glass of wine but we were still treated to the same level as those guests who were able to spend more money! Would defo recommend!"
    dined on 23/06/2014
  • "Service from when you walked in the door was excellent. The food was fantastic especially the dessert of salted caramel doughnuts they were amazing!"

    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "I'm from Barcelona and my husband is from Girona in Spain. We are used to eating in a very good restaurants with one, two or three michelin stars. We're very fan of Gordon, and of the good cuisine too; for this reason we decided to dinner in Petrus in our last visit to London. Good food, good presentation, good raw material but no more than other goods restaurants for all the world that we've tasted. The price too much disproportionate. 6£ for a 1L of still water!!!! The water is water, in Petrus and in any simple bar... There's no creation behind a bottle of water..."

  • "I celebrated my birthday at Petrus, the whole evening from the moment we were seated until we left was made very special by the wonderful food, great service and friendly staff."
    dined on 16/06/2014
  • "Exceptional cuisine for real foodies. Apart from the excellent value £75 lunch menu we were also treated to: superb amuse bouche of mascapone with a summer greens veloute pre desert was pimms sorbet (perfect texture, not too sweet and not too alcoholic = clever) with a fizz that was shaken before you having been infused with various citrus peels and decorated with micro dice cucumber strawberry etc = Michelin cuisine at its best loads of chocolate almonds dark and light chocolate ice cream lollipops served in a silver bowl with obligatory dry ice Service was excellent and you can pace the meal however you like. An extremely professional establishment without being stuffy. Thanks to all concerned."

    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "I had booked Petrus for my fiancée birthday and it was a fantastic evening. The service was exceptional, with a great eye for detail - noticing my partner was left handed! The food was equisite, we went for the tasting menu, every dish was beautifully presented and tasted amazing."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "We had already decided to have the set lunch menu after looking at the menu online. From the moment we entered the restaurant the service was second to none they could not do enough to make us welcome. I was on crutches at the time so comfort was important. The food on the set menu was outstanding and a visual delight and the flavours were wonderful. I would recommend Petrus to anyone."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Had the set lunch menu for £35 on Saturday. Service was great, what you would expect from a fine dining place. My friends found it too attentive though I would disagree. The lunch set menu was very good value, in addition the the three courses you get served an appetiser at the beginning and a petit four at the end. The food was very nice and well presented. Would go back!."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "I booked on recommendation of someone who has been several times. It was my partners birthday – a special one so wanted something special for him. I have to say that I can’t think of anything which would deter me from going again. It was fantastic. I am a vegetarian – the staff were very accommodating of this & changed things dishes on the tasting menu to suit my needs. They brought a small cake with a candle which was lovely touch & extra gift to take home with us too. I will most definitely be returning."
    dined on 12/06/2014
  • "Petrus lived up to its billings for fine dining and then some. Service was superb and every course was a masterpiece of presentation and taste. Wine recommendations were spot on.The layout of the restaurant was such that a certain amount of privacy and space was afforded to all while the general ambiance was pleasing."
