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.

    Absolutely amazing, it made my wife's 40th birthday. I can't recommend Petrus highly enough. The food is out of this word, the service was so warm, helpful and attentive. Please whatever you do, don't get rid of the chocolate desert, its amazing and a truly fantastic way to end off an incredible meal. Thank you to all staff who worked on Saturday 27th.

    Five of us dined at Petrus on Saturday night as a special birthday dinner for my husband. We had the tasting menu and the food was excellent. The Secrets wine pairings complemented the food, although they needed to be tasted closely together with the food in order to be best appreciated. Overall a very good evening although the service seemed to disappear after we were about half way through our meal which was disappointing, and there's no doubt that this is a very expensive night out.

    Michelin star rated restaurant, so you have to go in expecting the an expensive meal, but it's still worth the ambiance and experience for those really special occasions. Service was mostly good, but the wait between courses was a little longer than it needed to be at times. We also had to wait a long time to receive our check at the end of the meal. Other than that, everything was spectacular and such a perfect way to end our holiday trip to London and to celebrate our 8-year anniversary. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. So many techniques were used for each course. A true delight for all foodies!

    Staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. There are several menus to pick from with each explained and any questions answered. I did not like one of the flavours on one main and they happily allowed me to select from another menu. Food was excellent and served in a lovely way, never rushed but also not waiting for too long. There are extras such as an amuse-bouche and chocolates at the end. The wine selection is amazing though expensive, there are prices to suit most people. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Upon entry we were immediately greeted and shown to our table. We then met our waiter who didn't introduce himself and seemed to become more abrupt the longer he served us. However the food was excellent and the presentation of the food was superb, there was a lot of theatre which worked. The ambience was lovely and the decor superb.

    My husband and I dined here for lunch after being given a 3 course lunch voucher for two as a birthday present. We had been looking forward to the experience and it definately did not disappoint. The service was excellent with the staff being pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. The food from the lunch menu was sublime, a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds and good value for money too. The wines we chose were two of the more reasonably priced bottles and they did taste good, but as this is Petrus don't expect them to be cheap! All in all for a special occasion if you love great food and wine it's certainly well worth dining here.

    Took my wife to Petrus for our 42nd anniversary dinner. Fully lived up to expectations, with outstanding food, wines and service. Although we do not normally opt for tasting menus we did here as we had seen comments that portions were modest sized. This worked very well as we could get a taste of so much more of the dishes on the menu, as did the accompanying selection of wines for each course. Not cheap, but neither would you expect or want it to be.

    Overall - an avant garde experience to remember. For a couple of the dishes it would have been nice to have tasting notes - suggestions on what to combine etc. The amuse bouches were welcome. The bread was warm & delicious. 1 starter with truffles was superb, 1 with crabmeat was confusing. The mains, while so tasty, were all meat, & virtually no veg. 1 dessert (a miniaturised apple & blackberry crumble) was tasty enough but what is wrong with the original hearty-style crumble? Another dessert with white chocolate & rose petals was too cold and overly girly. The price was as eye-watering as the dry ice which wafted out of the surprisingly delicious chocolates with salted caramel which suddenly appeared gratis at the end of the meal.

    In visiting London for just one week, I wanted to be sure to see what Gordon Ramsey was made of. Although I'm not sure where Petrus ranks within his list of reputable restaurants, It was an absolute treat. I was solo for lunch & was taken care of by each of the 5 servers & 1 manager. They were timely & efficient in all aspects. I had the froi gras for an appetizer & duck for the main course, both of which were perfect. The ingredients prepared were perfectly paired to combine flavors & textures that brought the most in each bite. Aside, both amuse-bouche sent between 3 courses were perfect for cleansing the palette. Excellent service. Captivatingly delicious.

    This beautiful restaurant is everthing you would expect from the man who takes no prisoners. The decor is classy, understated elegance not at all intimidating, it feels welcoming as if to say, 'You have arrived at the right place sit back and enjoy it' ... And that is exactly what we did, The food was just faultless, and service the same. We travelled from the West Country and we will be making a return trip, when our busy life allows.

    We took some friends to the Petrus Kitchen Table lunch experience. Champagne and canapés to begin with and then down the stairs to the stainless steel world of the Petrus kitchen. The 'table' which can seat up to 8 I believe, is raised on a little dais with its own alcove and air con. From here you look over the whole kitchen - nothing is hidden - and it is quite amazing to watch staff go about their business with technique and concentration. There is hardly any communication such is their focus on getting perfect food on the plates. We had a huge number of courses, each explained in minute detail if you asked and at the end, were invited out to make our own final dessert which was such fun. This was a truly unforgettable experience.

    My husband and I went to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary over lunch. The food was amazing and the service truly outstanding. We received little special touches which made the experience all the more amazing. We ordered the 6 course taster menu with a bottle of red wine. We had recently enjoyed the taster menu at Clos Maggiore in Covent Garden for another special occasion. Petrus wins on service and special occasion ambience, but Clos Maggiore wins on food. Though we couldn't recommend both restaurants more!

    We have been visiting Petrus for a number of years - it's a great place to go for a special occasion and we have always been satisfied that this restaurant can pull out the stops and produce food and service that is truly superb. However, this time I have to admit I am a little bemused - neither the service nor my main course was 'top notch' - little slips on the service, a main course that I found difficult to eat and also a chosen wine from the very substantial wine list apparently not stocked anymore! We will definitely think twice before visiting again which is a shame - this restaurant is small, intimate with a lovely ambiance. Come on Petrus - time to pull your socks up!

    PLEASE READ... Can honestly say Petrus was the best meal I have ever had. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday on a Friday night. I had to book months in advance and to say the least you will spend a fair penny... But everything from the welcome, to the service, to the heavenly duck , to chocolate sphere, was out of this world... Worth the wait and expense. Quite frankly anyone who judges cost and portions size is an idiot. You get what you pay for and with Petrus you get the best.

    Went with the tasting menu + 3 courses. Everything was great, the entrees were amazing. We were so used to, in the US, having exciting appetizers but OK entree. Here the entrees were actually the highlight of the meal. The best dish that night was the snow crab, clean taste but packed with flavor. The white chocolate lychee dessert was heavenly. Portions were just perfect for a hungry boy and a medium hungry girl. Service was IMPECCABLE.

    As much as rewarded Gordon Ramsay may be, Petrus is not the most outstanding restaurant in London regarding Food. Service was excellent and the staff was very friendly and courtous. We even were able to change one course of the tasting menu as my wife is not favouring mussels, clams or most seafood. The courses were nicely presented but the taste of the courses nevertheless boring. There was some kind of individual flavour missing which each part of a menu should have. Still we had a very nice evening with a wonderful quiet corner table. The wine list is extensive, but pricewise in the very high end compare to other restaurants in that league.

    I dined here with 3 friends last Saturday. The service is excellent and quality of the food fantastic, however I have been to many restaurants of this level and in comparison, the value/price/experience was not quite there, and it is the first tasting menu I have ever done where we all left feeling hungry still. As with most of these places, the alcohol was high quality but heavily overpriced - a bottle of the cheapest bubbles was 120quid. The room also lacked any real atmosphere and was full of quite dull types for a Saturday especially. Everything we ate and the service was excellent, but with so many other places of a similar level to go in London, I will not waste money going back here again. Try Texture or Pollen Street Social instead.
