Critical acclaim has been heaped upon Galvin La Chapelle, a true destination restaurant and with good reason. This fabulous dining spot, just off of London’s famous Bishopsgate is the work of celebrated Chef-Restaurateur brothers, Chris and Jeff Galvin, and epitomises their approach to designing and running restaurants in every sense. Indeed, Galvin La Chapelle has all the wow-factor of Windows with the stylish refinement of Galvin Bistrot de Luxe while carving out its own very unique character at the same time. The interior is truly special, as is the food – cosmopolitan, continental and wholly elegant every step of the way, creative but familiar, special but unpretentious – no wonder Galvin La Chapelle was named Tatler’s Restaurant of the Year 2010 and AA Best London Restaurant 2010.

A perfect choice for a special occasion- we had the tasting menu with the paired wine list - the food was fabulous and the wine a perfect match - the staff were very accommodating and changed a couple of courses to suit a non meat eater - delicious food /wine and very attentive service without being too formal - we’ll be back definitely

Fantastic meal and ambience. Wine steward was great, and they kindly substituted our champagne for a digestif which topped a memorable meal off perfectly. Menu du chef kept costs down somewhat, but offered more limited choices (as expected). Well worth the indulgence!

I booked a table in advance for my partner's birthday and specifically chose the vegan menu. Unfortunately, lack of team communication led to myself and my partner to eat crab meat. I was very disappointed as it was mentioned twice that we was here for the vegan tasting menu and this should have been seen in the booking notes. I had high expectations for this place as it's fine dining after all. I couldn't see what the vegan menu was online but assumed it must be amazing hence why i didn't realise the crabmeat was indeed crab. Sounds silly but i thought it was just the vegan alternative like you would get for chicken,beef and pork etc. I informed the server who swiftly apologised but didn't seem too sincere and my partner was incredibly upset. Of course, the blame was put on me for not triple checking and we sat arkwardly at the table for 20 minutes before deciding let's just enjoy the night. I didn't want to complain or cause a fuss on the night because i didn't want to ruin my partner's birthday. Luckily, we were served the vegan tasting menu with no fuss and it was okay !

Wonderful atmosphere, brilliantly put together taster menu. Service was good, not over the top and friendly. Money worth spent as putting the amazing food aside, the ambience was lively and non stuffy but elegance was never absent. Highly recommend for couples or groups. Romantic enough to be a perfect date or anniversary night. Menu choice perfect enough for the most discerning diner.

With Baker Street closing down I now have to travel to the city to enjoy the hospitality of Galvin. As ever the menu was stunning with seasonal faire on offer. My fellow diner has two starters and was accommodated without any fuss. Three courses later and excellent conversation we left and went on our way.

My husband and I have been going to La Chapelle for a number of years. Food is always of a good standard, and this time was no exception. However, prices have gone up sharply - our bill was well over £200 for 4 for Sunday lunch and only one of us had wine. I thought the portions were rather on the mean side as well, with just one thin slice of roast beef for Sunday lunch, and half s poached pear for dessert! Can do better on value for money!

We were a party of 6 adults for Sunday lunch. The day was cold, but the welcome warm, and the room temperature comfortable despite its large scale. There's a definite wow factor with the room too. The table was a good size, and the music seemed a little loud at first but receded into the background as more people arrived. We had the set menu which was very good value for the quality, taste and presentation of the food. Lovely bread too. The service was very professional but friendly.
Just over a bottle of good wine between us, water, tea/coffee and service pushed the bill to £62 a person. Not cheap, but a very enjoyable meal which felt like a treat. Somewhere we'd all go to again.

My wife and I dine at La Chapelle quite a lot as its long been her favourite restaurant. It rarely disappoints and this recent visit found them at the top of their game providing exquisite food, reasonably priced wine and outstanding service. My wife has already chosen it for her forthcoming birthday with the family but I know we'll be back again before then!
