    Love this place. Cool lightbulbs hanging from the ceiling, great staff, menu with 3-4 options for each course which all sounded delicious.

    The service at Claude's kitchen / Amuse Bouche was simply apalling! From the pretentious manager to the non - English speaking waitress, we were left feeling as though we had intruded upon their own evening! Food was simply slammed down "builders caff" style, without eye contact or any explanation as to what it was. AVOID - AVOID - AVOID!!!

    We don't get the chance to eat out much now as we have a 2 year old daughter so when I booked this restaurant near where we live it was kind of a special evening. We had a glass of champagne in the bar downstairs before dinner which was lovely. The restaurant was really cosy, like being in someone's lounge with soft lighting. I really liked it! The food was amazing, a choice of 3 options which is always nice as sometimes there is too much on the menu. I really enjoyed the starter especially. Staff were really welcoming and never forgot us. Apart from having a horrible cold, we really enjoyed our evening. Thank team Claude's Kitchen!

    We went on a Monday night expecting to be one of the only tables in the resturant. However the atmosphere filling the place was excellent with almost the whole room filled with dinners. Really tasty food and the champers didn't go down to badly either. Will definitely pop back for a mid week bite to eat again.

    Third time I've been as I extend a youthful optimism toward this little restaurant with big potential. Sadly, every time, the experimental chefs are getting it badly wrong. I had BBQd rabbit for starter last night. Was just soooo stringy and dry and there's so little meat on a rabbit leg they might as well have just waved it under my nose. Wasn't worth the effort of lifting the knife and fork. The beef cheeks of the main course were beautifully done but the entire dish was otherwise utterly tasteless with burnt onions, chicory leaves and a baked fig really adding very little. I'd have loved some triple cooked chips. Nothing. In fact there are zero side options. Small kitchen. Few choices. All the more reason to get it right, not experiment

    I took my now fiance out for a pre-engagement meal, and it was the perfect experience. First the atmosphere at the bar is wonderful, they had a very talented musician playing and we found a quiet corner to drink our deliciously crafted cocktails. The cocktails, by the way, are both creative and incredibly delicious. My fiance had champagne mojito that she really enjoyed and I had a bourbon cinnamon drink that was outstanding. In Claud's Kitchen, you get what seems to be a private dinning experience while surrounded by people. The waitress was quick and very helpful. The food was amazing, everything seemed to be cooked to perfection.

    Food is clearly of a very high standard - but there were a lot of flavours going on, on one plate. I think if a few components were left out, it would make a better dish. That's just my opinion though. We had a lovely evening.

    It is a little hidden gem above an popular cocktail bar where you can either start or end your dinner. Great food served by very friendly staff in an casual yet romantic and intimate venue. I'm excited to go back and try more from it's ever changing menu.

    Seasonal menu was limited on this visit particularly around the mains (which didn't suit my guest), that said the other menus I have seen for other weeks looked great. Starters were excellent as was dessert. Service a little slow, but it was very busy. Had a nice meal, particularly as someone else was picking up the bill!

    Restaurant has a lovely homely feel but in a cool way (lightbulbs hanging all over the ceiling). Staff were all lovely - service slightly slow at times but I like it that way anyway! Food was great - 3-4 choices for each course and it felt that every one was seasonal or well designed. Great veggie options. Dessert was a disappointment compared to the other courses - for both of us. However, overall a great meal and evening and we will definitely return.

    This was a spectacular meal. Michalean level cooking, inventive, seasonal, delicious. The prices were great no added extras of sides dishes and bread etc. The staff were fantastic, well informed and genorous. The setting is really beautiful too with great lighting and furniture. One of the most romantic meals I've had.

    The ambience and service here were good , and generally we were pleased with the food although a bit underseasoned. But we were disappointed by the value for money , prices were toppy for plate whether main or starter, example , my daughters main was fig and cheese.salad, not much to it and £16. There were no sides included and they should have been with the price in regard to the portion size, and we are not big eaters! The wine list was also a bit expensive . We had 3 courses and were by no means particularly full , normally we wouldn't have desert . Considering the menu is small, then more focus needs to be on the value the customer is getting. I would give it another go .....

    I went there with my 2 well travelled cousins from Ireland- we had delicious starters and the most perfect rabbit main course - all so beautifully presented and clearly fresh fresh fresh ingredients! They said this was the best food they'd had at a London restaurant I years, and I agree! The ambiance is great too- not too big but feels like we found a secret hidden gem - I couldn't recommend Amuse Bouche/ Claude's Kitchen more highly!

    Three friends and I had dinner on Friday evening at Claude's Kitchen. The menu wasn't extensive, but the options were innovative and interesting. The food, however, wasn't as flavourful as I would have liked, least not for the price, but we had a nice dinner regardless. The waitstaff was a bit hit-or-miss as well. For the area, it's one of the nicer (and more romantic!) restaurants, but I wouldn't go out of my way to try it if you're not local to the area.

    Claude's kitchen turns out to be one of Fulham's best kept secrets. Conveniently located just opposite Parson's Green tube station, you enter through a little door to go up the staircase (lit with candles) to find the restaurant above Amuse Bouche champagne bar. It is Country Kitchen meets French bistro inside and the lighting is very romantic (=flattering... ladies will like it!). The menu is small and all of the dishes use seasonal ingredients, which means that the food was absolutely wonderful. Fresh, with fantastic flavor combinations. Simple yet complex and sophisticated. A definite must for a foodie. The tables and chairs are quite rustic and the atmosphere is buzzy. Cool place, no frills, lovely experience - the food is the star!

    The food was great though the starters were a little bit of a let-down. If you're ordering sardines, you expect more than half a sardine. Otherwise, the food was excellent. The service was attentive and friendly but I feel the need to point out that they cleared away our (unfinished) bottle of wine when we went out for a cigarette, which was slightly annoying. All in all - thoroughly recommended.

    Last night was the second time I went to Claudes, the first time I was blown away, the second time I brought my parents from Australia and saw the menu and thought nothing really appealed to me but stayed anyway - it was AMAZING!!!! It will have stars soon and 3 month waiting list so get in there quick (but don't take my table!)

    Sadly, it didn't live up to expectations. Pros + attentive and polite service + bread and salted butter was delicious Cons - small menu (not an issue, but you'd expect each dish to be bang on) - rabbit starter is perfect for dieters as you'll get 1 mouthful of meat at the most - Fatty meat (beef short rib) - odd combinations (I'm not sure what was matched with the chocolate mousse, but it didn't work and we only eat half). - loud and ostentatious clientele (yes, I know I should have expected this in Parsons Green, but I didn't expect my table to be 10cm from our neighbour) - expensive If you're in the area (near the station) and looking for something to eat, you're better off saving your pennies and heading to Cote.

    I visited Claudes Kitchen on the Monday of the bank holiday weekend and was pleased to see that there was a set menu special. The food was delicious, interesting combinations with the beef short rib being my favourite. An extensive wine list and a romantic atmosphere added to our night. The service especially could not be faulted, with the waitress being both attentive and friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone local to the SW area.
