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.

    A late rainy Thursday in October was turned into a spectacular event. From the champagne to the ice-cold petit fours, the total experience was outstanding. Both the presentation of the food and wines, that fitted perfect, was done with expertise. We were treated with great respect, something you as a foreigner appreciate very much.

    We had the most amazing dining experience at Petrus. We chose the tasting menu and felt we were dining in heaven. The fusion of different tastes we experienced worked so well together. We could not fault anything. Lovely relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff who were attentive without being distracting. The bill was expensive but we were expecting that as the preparation and quality of the food were perfect.

    We had a great meal once again although we were disappointed by the Sommelier. The White wine was not opened and decanted at the table as it has been on previous occasions. In addition, he forgot to bring the red wine. By the time he remembered, we had finished our meal so we cancelled it and he was very persistent in trying to insist on us having the wine. He kindly brought a glass of dessert wine which was a nice touch. At the end of the meal, the Sommelier pointed out to my husband on 3 occasions that they had omitted the service charge. As it happens we intended to pay it anyway since the service from the rest of the team was impeccable. The Sommelier cheapened the experience with his lack of professionalism.

    This was good, but it simply lacked the 'wow' factor experience of many others, in terms of food and service. The set menu was far inferior to the a la carte, whereas normally it is just more restrictive. The overall experience therefore didn't seem great value. There are much better options out there, for a similar cost.

    I booked for my boyfriend's birthday, and the food was delicious. It has lovely subdued and intimate atmosphere that is great for a special occasion. I was a little disappointed as I had emailed the restaurant in advance to ask if they could do something like add a candle or something to mark the occasion and this didn't happen. Otherwise though this was a fantastic evening.

    We visited Petrus from the U.S. for the first time last year. It was such an enjoyable experience, we knew we had to do it again when we visited London this year. The meal and the service were just as impeccable as we remembered. The staff is helpful and knowledgeable and the meal was absolutely delicious and one which we shall talk about for a long time to come. It is truly a pleasure to dine here and we were treated with the utmost respect.

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!
