The service was superb; the food great. I love Balthazar in NYC, and l loved this one even more. We had lunch here and will definitely go for both lunch and dinner when I next visit London. The service was really amazing.
Mistake with table booked
Waiter unnecessarily pointing out the lack of calories in an empty soup bowl! Inappropriate. Sexist!
As always very good service. Very good food. Ideal location for the opera house and open late.
Very vibrant place with excellent service & food. Highly recommend this place for a meal.
Delicious food, nice surrounding, kind service
Està Vez mucho ruido !! La comida y el servicio excelente como siempre!!
Always a pleasure. The staff are wonderful. Thank you
Packed restaurant / made for a great atmosphere. Enjoyed the evening and Plenty of staff at hand.
A special catch up with family from Australia. Beautiful food in a gorgeous venue
This remains an excellent, dependable choice for a casual dinner - I took guests from New York who know the sister restaurant and they thought it compared really well. Food was excellent - room was super busy and the service suffered a bit in the sense that there were points where we had excellent, attentive service, and points where we sat there for 20 mins without plates being cleared. But overall, it was a good experience and my guests loved the room and the food.
They are taking the mickey on their wine £75 for a bog standard bottle of Bourgogne rouge . Ridiculous
Food was nice and everyone at my table enjoyed their meal. Service was very basic and almost non existent, wine list was very basic and our table was set with dirty cutlery and glasses. Won't be back in a hurry.
My friend is Italian and wanted to go to a place that served different food. Balthazar is one of my fav restaurants in London, but I still was a bit nervous, I really wanted him to enjoy our lunch. And he did! He loved the atmosphere, the service, everything was perfect and the food delicious. We absolutely loved the autumn salad, by the way! Merci et à bientôt, Anamaria
Great food. Superb service and classic bistro environment
I would recommend it but for the environment only. We were asked 4 times if we wanted water and eventually laughed out loud. We did not want water! Breakfast was ok. A glasses of house champagne was delicious. We asked for toast and received just that no butter or preserves so had to ask for after a short wait. We did not pay for service needless to say.
Balthazar is a great restaurant for a date or group. The ambiance is fun and very lively and their service and food is top-notch! Their steak frites is one of my favourite dishes to order!
It’s a nice place but nothing special for the prices you pay. Better places in London that offer more interesting options.
Loads of people for service... but service felt slow at times.
Service was poor although food was good and menu offered a wide selection.
Busy place. Nice food. The tables are very close together and therefore it’s hard to have a conversation over the meal.
Everything was impeccable. The perfect breakfast, in the perfect city, celebrating my breaking up. I will certainly be back soon. Loved it.
Steak was way too fatty. A little fat is good, but I’m talking full on grissle! Cooked to the exact correct temp, though, and the mac & cheese was outstanding!
Fun French-style bistro, but nothing I’ll be rushing to try again anytime soon unless I happen to be in the area.
Great service, although very noisy. Food is really good and the restaurant is very traditional french brasserie style
Very very slow service
Lovely atmosphere, great brassiere food and on the mark service.
Couple dinner. Nice food as advertised
Always expect great grand cafe comfort food
Lovely place, lovely meal.
A solid restaurant with very speedy delivery to the table. Well cooked dishes. Slightly displeased that the waiter left us half way through ordering to have a chat with some other diners leaving the restaurant. Unprofessional. Otherwise a nice experience.
Really nice place - a favourite of mine!
Excellent Food & Service. Whether for a good meal or special occasion.
You're paying for the ambience. The food is okay. The service is annoying. Too many people attending to your table, so nothing actually ever happens. There must be communication issues. It took 15 minutes to get bread. My coffee came after, not with, dessert. When we complained about our glasses smelling like soap, we got a 60 second explanation for why that may be, when all we wanted was a new glass.
Comme à chaque accueil très professionnel la nourriture est très bonne et le cadre magnifique
I loved it! The staff was superb! Everyone was so attentive and patient, it was full and very busy, I arrived early and sat at the bar, the bartenders were lovely, all of them, it was a joy, the place is in a bustle of activity, it feels like there is a party going on but your table is still intimate, I loved the experience and the staff! I recommend Balthazar highly as a dining experience!
As always Balthazar delivers with tasty, well-prepared food.
The service was slow, hard to get our order taken.
Impeccable service and very good food and wine.
We enjoyed our experience even though it was very crowded and service was slow due to this. Took quite a long time to get our drinks and since it was brunch would have loved a cup of coffee, but that never happened. however, even with these negatives I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. The Burrata salad was plentiful for 2 people to share and the eggs benedict was delicious too, although it should have come with a side of potatoes or "something". Plate looked underdressed, but taste was great.
Everything I expected, but the noise levels were an eye opener, forget having that “romantic” meal occasion, but once past that it’s great!
Maybe trendy means “grin and bare it “, do it again ?.....YES
Perfectly pleasant meal. wouldn't expect fireworks, but it does what it says on the tin!
Great food and staff
The staff was very nice and helpful. They made our anniversary dinner quite nice. The food was outstanding.
