We went for birthday celebrations. Phenomenal restaurant I have to say, the food experience was amazing and we particularly liked the menu composition. Fantastic atmosphere, very attentive staff, complete and reasonably priced wine list. Club Gascon is definitely one of the best restaurants in London.
Should be rated 2 stars I believe.
We have been going to CG for about fifteen years now and it remains our favorite restaurants. Although our budget has gone up and we have been to other high-end places, CG just keeps on impressing. It may not be the flavour of the day to have highly elaborate French cuisine in an over-the-top setting, but it simply works. The food is great, the service impeccable, and even the other diners seem to have morphed a little from expense account-types to genuine foodies. We always look forward to the foie gras dish (although even CG is moving with the times and is offering a veggie dish as alternative) and the novel ways of preparing it. I find the autumn/winter menus the most impressive at CG, I cannot recall ever not being impressed by them.
Phenomenal service. Courses were paced well, wine was expertly paired. Sommelier was practiced and clearly had a heart for her craft. Definitely will stop by again.
The food was delicious, lovely atmosphere and staff very attentive and their recommendations on the food and wine were spot on.
We are long standing regular guest at Club Gascon ( almost since it has opened more than 20 years ago). We are always amazed by the creativity of the chef and the charming and professionalism of the service. My wife and I visited again on Saturday and had the most enjoy evening , until a guest seated at a table next to us started to make a fuzz and talked in a very rude way to our waiter... Propably the same man that left the awful review below. This gentleman was simply trying desperately to get some sort of discount by pretending the waiter did not introduce their last course. Being seated right next to them , we cannot let this happened as we heard the waiter explaining it to them . That so called "man" started to shout-out all type of things to the waiter and to us!! Such a disgrace in restaurant of that standing. The manager came to us to explain that we should enjoy the rest of the evening ignoring that man and went straight to that guest asking him to calm down and speak in an appropriate way. I must say that we were impressed by the way the manager handled the situation with calm and professionalism. When this guest left and attend to interrupt again our dinner, the manager stepped in to avoid further argument and escort that man out of the restaurant. We and the other guests finally managed to enjoy the end of our meal.
As a final class act from the service, we were offered a digestive for this man disruption. This is to our opinion a very well managed venue and we will certainly return again and again.
Everything was good but at the end there was a guy just put the dish on the table. He didn’t try to introduce more about the meal. It’s very rude. I don’t why. I asked him to come back and talked to him. Later his manager came to apology. I guess that’s why one of the reasons this is the restaurant only earned one MICHELIN star.
The manager contacted me by public and private email. I just want to make everything clear so I posted my answer here.
(I didn’t have any bad behavior to anyone. The client couldn’t judge anyone. I just stand for my right. How can she said very loudly to my table if she didn’t know anything? Also you did come for apology. Now you said you didn’t. This is how you managed your restaurant. Good job!)
Repose to the reply above
It was very simple thing that the waiter DIDN’T introduce the final dish. I was very polite to raise my question. But the man just wrote the comment was with a female. She said very rude thing to us. They actually didn’t really know anything well but they judge my table. I definitely need to stand for my right.
At the end, I was very polite to ask a check and before leaving I just said enjoy your dinner to that table. That’s it. They can say anything not so truth like that - even the store manager too. It’s unbelievable.
Just be careful to eat at this kind of restaurant. You can’t even raise a question and this is how they deal with it. I defiantly will not go back. Really terrible experience.
Dear Mr Hsu, I am extremely surprised that after such a bad behaviour from yourself toward one of our staff member and guests seating around you , you allow yourself to leave such a review .First of all , our waiter (this guy) has done his job perfectly from the beginning until the end of your meal, explaining each and every dishes. Secondly , I came myself to your table not to apologize, but to ask you kindly not to behave as you did. Best regards, Thomas Rabuel - The manager
We had a wonderful evening. The service was excellent and the Somellier very knowledgeable. The food and wine were outstanding. The restaurant was quiet unlike so many which play music far too loud. An excellent experience all round.
Dear Joclyn, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your lovely review following your recent visit at the restaurant. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed the experience. We shall hope seeing you again soon. Best Regards, Thomas Rabuel - General Manager
The tasting menu and accompanying wines were described by staff with enthusiasm. The plates were beautifully arranged - they looked and tasted like summer!
Dear Guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your lovely review following your recent visit at the restaurant. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed the experience. We shall hope seeing you again soon. Best Regards, Thomas Rabuel - General Manager
Absolutely incredible dinner! A total treat. Fabulous service and sommelier with great stories about all the wines. I be already booked our next visit. Thank you so much for looking after us.
The 5 course tasting menu was as brilliant as ever. Good wine pairings. Interesting combinations, superbly explained by the sommelier. If in doubt, choose the fois gras option. This restaurant always does it well. All our dishes were delicious, and the mignardises were gorgeous surprises. For a restaurant that takes its food so seriously, the atmosphere is warm and welcoming, not pretentious.
The food was sublime, service top notch. A hidden gem!
OK but expensive; could be better, could be worse.
Very friendly staff with a great vibe. Amazing food and - while in the upper range - good value for money. In the beginning, I felt we got interrupted mid-conversation a few times by waiters presenting some nibbles - when you sit down and try to have a conversation and every 2 minutes someone approaches the table and starts talking that can be slightly disruptive. Apart from that it was a great experience and I would come again. Everyone was really friendly and helpful.
Excellent food and service. The Foie Gras is just delicious
It's the second time that we dine in this restaurant and we enjoyed the second time as much as the first one! The first time we thought that the vegetarian dishes were particularly original and noteworthy so this time we went indeed for the vegetarian menu. It was excellent, although we missed the spaghetti potatoes we had last time (please bring them back! ;) We had the initial amuse bouche and other small free dishes that make even more pleasant to be there. A small note is that the waiter swapped our dishes but otherwise the service was impeccable. The chef even accommodated a change of dishes we requested.
Never cheap but good for what it is. Every course was great. Good to see the duck egg back in its nest with black truffle. Veggie tasting menu is outstanding whilst the other menu had an Iberico main dish that was apparently close to perfection. Service impeccable. I still (really) don’t like the mini sinks beneath a shelf in loos that are a nightmare to use but for this good food and service you can forgive that.
Club Gascon has an amazing French menu! We made a last minute booking and were very pleased with our seating allocation. Some of the tables towards the back feel a little cramped, but the food and drinks should make up for this ;-)
It deserves all its rating and stars. Supurb from the arrival until the end. Food present without repute. Service to the highest level. The whole theatre of the food delivery and presentation was worlds best.
Great food, friendly staff and good atmosphere.
Love the finger snacks and the caramelized eel is amazing.
Came back after a couple of years and another outstanding meal. Come hungry, 4 canapes, 2 extra courses, 7 courses from the menu. Oh and the wine... I come just for the wines from the South West you don't see elsewhere. Everything was a joy from the crisp truffle to the crispy pork. The Cassoulet bonbon was a delight, all the taste in asingle bite. I always find this place a joy. Excellent service too!
Excellent service and food. A wonderful way to celebrate my birthday
We had the five course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fantastic! The choice of wines fitted perfectly with the dishes. The foie gras brule was exceptional, my second favourite was the
john dori with seaweed variation and kohlrabi - really good!
Staff was very friendly and professional, every wine was explained in detail. We will definitely come back!
The food is excellent and the service impeccable, vale not so sure it was £400 for two. I had the 7 course tasting+ wine my wife just the tasting and one glass of wine. Plus a couple of cocktails to start. Probably 7 glass of wine of a person would be too much but we shared.
I would go again.
Just off of Smithfield Market, Club Gascon is a peaceful haven from the bustle outside offering a delicious bite of France with stunning, delicate and flavourful dishes. Not afraid to take risks, some of the unexpectedly pleasing dishes included a Blue cheese cheesecake and Fired cuttlefish with squid ink. Both superb. Paired with friendly, attentive service and you've got a great recipe for a top tier working lunch or special celebratory dinner.
A gem even though it is far from central london and
requires a trek !
Will make a effort again soon however may be not too soon
just for the effort required !
A restaurant of this quality would be throughly booked throughout if it was more central.
We had to wait half an hour for the fourth serving in our tasting menu. It was almost cold. We received a deduction in our bill when we complained. But we would rather have paid full price for a better experience.
Gorgeous food. Quiet restaurant. Excellent value until of course you up the bill with wine etc.
We will come back
Fantastic lunchtime experience. Staff are attentive and the menu is diverse. Excellent value for money given its Michelin status.
The food is amazing. One of the best restaurants I have ever visited.
Hand written card from chef on table as it was our anniversary - nice touch. Food was sublime. Really enjoyed it all. Thanks to all the Club Gascon team for making it such a splendid experience
Consistently great food. Good service.
Very friendly and attentive staff.
We really enjoyed the food that was served in the most and the atmosphere was beautiful.
Only a partial let down because the bathroom was tiny and there were a couple dishes that we didn’t appreciate as much.
Generally a beautiful experience. We would recommend
Absolutely top class. Everything from the welcome onwards, every detail was spot on. This is a very well run place, and the food was incredible. We opted for a tasting menu paired with wine, everything was well explained and every wine matched the taste profile of the food superbly. Loved it!
Always a wonderful place, excellent food, very pleasant and quiet service. One of my favorites in London
Wonderful food with attentive staff, top class
Nice to find a quieter restaurant. Top quality service and great dishes although not as consistent as I had hoped across the menu. Sweets a particular treat. Good list of wines by the glass.
Delicious food with some fascinating taste combinations and beautiful presentation. I will definitely be back for more!
Outstanding food. Outstanding service. Wide variety of food and flavours.
