Very friendly and helpful staff. Complementary tasters served at the start and end of the dinner.
Many many plusses and one minus. The minus first. it was a rainy evening and traffic was atrocious. We arrived 10 minutes late and they had already given our table away. We had to make noise to get a table, not a great start to a birthday celebration. But after that it was great. Seven course taster was really ten courses and every single delicious course was innovative with great depth of flavour! Highly recommend this place.
Great food, great wine and great location. What more could you want.
We visited Club Gascon for lunch on a Tuesday. Whilst the restaurant was not full there were enough diners to make a pleasant ambience. We ordered the 7 course tasting menu & were not disappointed. It was not just a meal but a true dining experience. Each course had an exquisite taste and whilst the portions are small we certainly had enough to fill us up! Service was excellent Very relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended.
My son, a chef, and I go out to dinner occasionally just for the joy of experiencing cuisine we can talk about together. Club Gascon provided exactly that. We had the 5 course autumn tasting menu and the wine flight, and every mouthful of every plate was a joy, paired perfectly with some unexpected wines. Son abandoned me to go and meet the chef after the dessert - and clearly enjoyed that as well. Service is perfectly discreet and intimate.
Very nice French restaurant, sober but tastefully decorated. Had a 7 courses discovery menu, it was an enchantment for the palate, various combinations of flavours and texture dish after dish, the visuals are also part of the experience you eat with your eyes as much as your eyes. A wonderful dinner.
I visited Club Gascon in its first month of opening far too many years ago.... the restaurant has become one of my all time favourite places to eat in the planet
The food is outstanding innovative and a delight and if you can take the wine pairings which always amaze
The atmosphere is always reserved and the staff attentive without being over the top. I love this place
Food delicious. Starlevel fullfilled.
Strict no trainers policy, checked via phone, been allowed to show up with trainers. So would recommend phoning first. This policy is acceptable for uk natives but is unsettling for cosmopolitans.
Sommelier appeals too arrogant and not dedicated enough for that high standard. One of the wines for the seven course menu was unacceptable.
A very imaginative cuisine around very classic ingredients.
A very welcoming atmosphere and service.
The amuse bouche are very interesting.
The current theme seems to be very “surf and Turf” mixing a lot of earth and sea products. The result is Interesting, curious, but may not be of the taste of everybody.
A must do place though...
Friendly staff and fantastic food. Highly recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing. Great for a special occasion.
There was a hair in one of our dishes, and the waiter wasn't very nice.
First class experience of tasting menu with paired wines. We’ll be coming back at least four times a year for the seasonal variation
Schönes, ruhiges Restaurant. Gut gelegen. Sehr freundliche Bedienung. Stimmige Weinbegleitung bzw. Empfehlungen. Schöne Auswahl offener Weine. Zwei leckere lokale Biersorten. Menü (5-7 Gänge) war uns zu viel, haben Starter mit Hauptgang kombiniert. Essen war aromatisch gut abgestimmt, Portionen typisch überschaubar, aber dank sehr leckeren Brot wurden wir satt.
Excellent value set lunch meal for such good quality dishes.
I visited club Gascon on Saturday at 8pm, staff were great .
The food and wine was fantastic, beautifully presented.
I look forward to returning.
The food and service were fantastic. Every course was well presented and the flavours were delicate. However, there was another table talking and laughing very loudly while we were there, which I think was not the norm there but just wish the staff had done something as it made it really difficult for us to enjoy our conversation.
Excellent all round - I could do this restaurant every month!!!
Astonishingly good food.
Wonderful and creative food that doesn't make you feel too full. Often fine dining is too rich. The tasting menu is just sensational. Very knowledgeable Sommelier.
Outstanding service with a very creative and innovative menu. Every dish is like a work of art that it's not only pleasing to the eye but is a gastronomical explosion in your mouth. If you are in London this is a place that should be a must on your dining list for you will not be disappointed.
Great food and attentive, discreet and knowledgeable staff . Will come back again and again.
Fantastic food and very attentive staff. Will definitely be returning!
This is the 7th Michelin Star I have been to and most have left me very unimpressed. However, this way everything I was hoping for and more! Wonderful vegetarian tasting menu!
We had the tasting menu with wine pairings which was excellent. I had let them know ahead of time that my husband was gluten free which they acknowledged when we arrived. Each course was slightly adapted and they served excellent GF homemade bread.
Very creative with a few missteps in flavors
the tasting menu foie gras was not tasting st all like foie gras it was too acidic / vinegar n coffee flavors to actually fast much of the foie gras that was too bad n some tomato appetizer - just too much of same flavor tasted more just like bean dish and bland- also zucchini flowed with tapioca for me did not work bit boring as flavor -
But overall interesting
The duck was well prepared
Presentation was nice
El nivel gastronómico es impecable y el servicio está a la altura. Muy recomendable
Very friendly and welcoming restaurant with top notch meals. We went with kids and they adapted the menu fir them. the food is not just good, it’s extremely innovative. The service is great as well.
Excellent food and service and not too noisy (hooray). Post refurbishment it’s 4/5 as I really don’t like the mid shelf sinks in the loos. New sommelier finding his feet/confidence but so was the last one a few years ago who proved excellent.
Excellent food, excellent service. The staff were very attentive
Fantastic food with great flavours in every mouthful. Service was exemplary. The evening could not have been better.
Great range of aperitif, starters and mains unique but amazing, and cocktails were delicious.Staff were extremely polite and helpful. One waiter looked mortally offended when I drank straight from the lemonade bottle though.
We had a really great time having the tasting menu and a bottle of wine- it was really good fun (although I warn you, quite a lot of food)! The food was the best I've had in a while, even when compared to other restaurants of the same type of calibre. The atmosphere was a little subdued- however we will still be back to try the à la carte!
best french food of last 3 years, much better than other Michelin starred french chef in town
Amazing meal, the food was imaginative with unusual flavour combinations. The front of house and servers were courteous and attentive. The sommelier astounded with his knowledge and his choice of pairing worked amazingly. Would definitely recommend a visit and will be returning in the not so distant future.
Very creative presentation and exquisite food
And yet again, Club Gascon punches way above its weight. This slightly understated and lesser known restaurant in many ways offers a culinary experience easily worthy of TWO Michelin stars - and I don't quite know why this hasn't happened. This is the third time we have been, and everything was...faultless and faultlessly exquisite in taste, balance, creativity and service. Almost criminally underrated. And this isn't my first 1/2/3 star Michelin Rodeo. Up there with the Best in London. Surf and Turf Supreme as well! Just Go.
The tasting menu was very innovative, it had flavours, imagination and some theatre of presentation and delivery that made it feel special. This isn't the cheapest of meals, but it has a lot of thought and time put into stimulating tastes that makes it feel worthwhile. The staff let you take time to enjoy this without being imposing, sometimes a little too busy to be on top of everything but not to the point where you feel impatient. It is set in a part of London that Dickens himself wandered around including the Church and Charterhouse formed 1,000 years ago. A hidden part of historic London to compliment a special food experience. The team at the core very well intended, overall very good.
The meal was delicious. The service was also very good, however the meal took much longer than needed-nearly 4 hours. There is a definite balance between long enough and just too long.
I don't write many reviews but our recent experience was so good I couldn't resist. It was my third or fourth time here, but I am happy to say it was the best.
After several amuse bouches, all very good and putting to shame those at most places , we went for the five course menu instead of a la carte for once as it looked interesting and well balanced, and it was a good choice. All dishes were excellent (the duck marginally tough but fully enjoyable), but the star of the show was imo the roquefort dessert - extraordinary, and I am not usually one for sweets. The wine pairing, which I rarely go for, was also excellent with a couple of unusual choices but all working perfectly. Service was attentive, even on a full restaurant, without being intrusive - and yes most staff have a heavy accent but so what.
Overall an excellent experience, more two Michelin stars than one, and I look forward to coming back.
Michelin star food from the 90's . Some signature dishes work well (fois gras and razor clams), while others are dull (turbot escabeche). Good service and great sommelier. But this doesn't make up for tired menu.
