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.

    The services is efficient. I am not one for very strong flavour food which this restaurant was serving. All three of us shared the same feeling about the tastes. It is a very subjective view but the food was well presented and services is excellent I am not sure I like the colour of the toilet and the very shallow sink

    visited this Michlin star restaurant for lunch with my family & found it good with excellent service & atmosphere but the quality of the food did not match to the service. ordered the lunch menue & found it great value for money. Unfortunately the lamb was served warm to cold which was not expected & the water melon of the melon salad was off. so as overall experience apart from the food quality & innovation was nice hope those points will be noted & I am not expect to revisit soon

    I booked dinner at Petrus to celebrate with my wife our anniversary. Setting is nice and relaxing and waiters are nice and not too intrusive. We ordered the chef's tasting menu. The Fois gras and duck were the top dishes, the rest are to a michelin starred restaurant what could only be counted as normal or even slightly under-expectation. Overall a nice experience, but food could be a lot better.

  • Waste of my stomach space
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 16/11/2014
    Under the recommendation of a friend and the understanding that this is a 1-star michelin restaurants, expectations were high but ultimately, the whole experience was a disaster. Venue - The place is nice and the ambience is good but the I wouldn't expect diners to be seated just 50-60cm apart. Wine - Wines selection is huge and they have pretty decent wines. We enjoyed our wine. Food - Let me list out the items one by one and you will understand how bad the food is. 1. Canapés a. Fried chicken (top right), basically it tastes like Japanese chicken karaage, nothing to rave about. b. Pate (left), if I recall correctly, it is a duck pate but once again, it is just so simple that I can't remember what I ate. c. Fish roe crispy roll (bottom), amongst the 3 canapés, this is the one that left an impression. This is serve hot and crispy and the filling was just surprising. 2. Soup Appetiser The only dish that is worth going and it is not from the menu! The soup is refreshing and it really a good starter as it opens your appetite. This is where all the disappointment came. 3. Foie Gras and 4. Scallop I'm writing the both together as an item because they taste so normal (can get this standard anywhere else). 5. Beef Tartare (3 course menu) One of the diners ordered a non-tasting menu and had this as the appetizer. To be honest, everyone on the table gave a thumbs up on this dish. The only reason is the aroma of the truffle oil helped the dish, so thumbs up to the creator rather than the chef who prepared it. 6. Frog leg (3 course menu) Another diner who didn't have the tasting menu had this. Probably the 2nd worse dish of the night! I come from Singapore where frog legs are served in many places, never have I tried frog legs that were not chewy (which the meat was supposed to be). To think that frog legs is a French delicacy but the chef in Petrus got it wrongly, it is such a disgrace. 7. Fillet Decent dish, but again, no surprises and plainly simple.

    This was our second visit but we opted for lunch this time. It was delicious again. The only thing was there were a few children in and we could hear the noise from them (not sure why people would bring children to this type of restaurant) they were obviously getting tired or bored but I guess that was not the restaurants fault. The food and service were faultless and we will definitely return again.

  • Petrus, Murano or Marcus?
    Piotr
    Dined on 13/11/2014
    I and my wife had an opportunity to dine on consecutive days at three Michelin stars restaurants in London : Murano, Petrus and Marcus. I choosed the same main dish - crispy pork belly in all these restaurants what let me better compare meals. We had 3 courses menu with wine ca 150 pounds per bottle. Our opinions were as follows. Petrus and Murano at the similar level with pointing Petrus as best choice having food and service at the highest level and the bill came out the lowest. Murano was a bit behind Petrus but offered more friendly ambience. Marcus at The Berkeley definitely deserves no Michelin stars. The food taste worse (pork skins could not chew, and the vegetables were too sour) and our stomachs showed its presence by the rest of the day. Service wanted to be friendly, but they performed it artificially (except sommelier) and the bill was over 25% higher than at Petrus. Never again at Marcus although I remember Marcus Wareing's meals when he was chef at Petrus and his meals were at high level. Why so bad is now?

    My husband and I dined courtesy on my daughter for my birthday and as I am coeliac, I require a gluten free diet. I notified Petrus on the booking and to my delight they were completely aware as soon as we were given the menu the waiter told me to order anything and the chef would make sure I was looked after. He was right, my choice of food did not disappoint, the flavours are so intense and the presentation is exquisite. I was pleased with the attention of the wine waiter when decanting out red wine which had residue so he decanted again , it was worth the wait, pure nector.

    Yankreview2014
    Dined on 30/10/2014
    This was an elegant restaurant, service was very good although a little stiff, and there were so many wait persons it was hard to determine who was really our waiter, so confusing when attempting to make a request. It also appeared that English was NOT the first language of all the wait staff. Again, this made for difficulty in making clear our wine and menu choices. The menu featured mainly fish items, which for a non-fish eating person made choices very limited. Portions are truly a "tasting" menu size, even though we did not choose that option. Good wine list.

    From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel special and welcome by every single member of staff bar none. My mother and I were there for the Chef's menu which had been given as a gift voucher to my Mum from my sister after her wedding. The 5 course menu turned into 9 courses by the end with little extras slipped in by the chef and every single plate that arrived was exquisitely presented and seasoned to perfection. I had chosen to have the Secrets wine pairing with my meal and each course brought a new glass and a friendly and knowledgeable description of the wine that was to accompany the next course and a detailed rationale of why it complimented it. A little pricier than I am used to but so worth it and highly recommended.

    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.
