We arranged an informal business meeting for a late lunch. The setting was perfect and the staff attentive but not over bearing. Very impressed and good value.

Very disappointing. I have been a regular Cafe Rouge customer over the years. This was the first time I had been to the Victoria branch, which I chose as a central meeting place for a group of friends. It was cold, noisy and the service was non-existent; We waited over an hour for our food after ordering and did not even receive an apology. Best to close it down as it lets the other restaurants down very badly.

We needed to have a business meeting in London and this restaurant is very convenient to Victoria Station. The service was very slow, which suited us fine as we were discussing business, but could have been disastrous had we been in a hurry. There were a lot of groups eating, because it is Christmas of course, which probably slowed it down.

When the food came, it was fresh and hot and very good value for money.

Good food and great service which made for a lovely family event: the only criticism was that there was no real relief from a pretty warm day, and the two small babies in our party suffered accordingly - better ventilation or aircon would have been helpful.

This was a good pick just after seeing Wicked at the Apollo just over the road. A tasty menu which is uncomplicated and has something for everyone. Good service and they made me a Kir Royale even though it was not on the menu! Be aware that there is a lot of building work around the bus and train station right now so best to walk through the station concourse to get to the restaurant.

Food was mediocre, not bad, not great. They seemed understaffed so service was very slow.

I ordered a Chicken salad which was very disappointing. The avocados were rock hard and the rest of it was very boring and tasteless. Not very good value for money. I had a 50% voucher which softened the blow and stopped me complaining. Everything else was fine. The prawn starters are always delicious!

Met up with a few old colleagues. We were allowed to take our time, were not rushed or hurried in any way. Good relaxing environment.

The only comment was that they didn't know about the reservation when we arrived but quickly made us a table so the issue was resolved.

Overall food was ok but over priced. Loved the legume croquettes as a starter, had beef bourguignon and the beef was beautifully tender but it tasted quite like beef stock rather than having a red wine flavour so a little disappointing. Sharing cocktail was nice. It was absolutely freezing in there though - napkins would have flown away under air conditioning if not held down by cutlery!

Excellent meal and service. Nice children's meal and colouring books & pencils given which helped pass the time while adults chatted, (although we did have to ask for those). Reserved a table which was ready for us on arrival. Was not rushed perfect afternoon.

Booked this restaurant because of its convenient location at Victoria station. Very friendly staff who looked after our table very well. Meal was very tasty and good portion sizes for the children. Will definitely use again.
