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.

We had a good lunch. The service is excellent and the setting superb. I was a little disappointed with the food. It was not as good as I expected. It may have been my choices - scallops followed by lamb. The scallops were good. The lamb was a little more raw than rare for my liking. The tarte tatin was nice. Overall, it was a nice lunch made good by the superb service and setting. The food should have been the star but it wasn't which does impact the value rating.

High end food enjoyed by us all. The food is rich in flavour and the portion size just right for a satisfying meal. The wine list is extensive with something for everyone. The Cornish crab lasagne starter was faultless and divine.

Absolutely fabulous tasting menu with wine pairing. Service was spot-on and I thought the COVID-19 arrangements were both effective and subtle. Definitely on my list of regulars.

We’ve been here many times before. As usual our meal was superb. We had the lunch Chefs menu which was good value with the extra Rishi discount, tasty and beautifully presented. There was no VAT discount though. We also had a white Rioja with it which we loved, finishing with cappuccinos and petit fours.

We love the venue but the only issue was the excessive heat. The air conditioning wasn’t strong enough but we did feel sorry for the staff wearing masks and suits! There is an outside space option but it wasn’t enticing enough. Needs more planting really and made prettier.

It was nice to note that La Chapelle has adjusted well to dealing with the challenges posed by COVID 19. Apart from a little extra spacing to maintain social distancing, everything was as usual: excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will be going again soon.

Yet again, La Chapelle demonstrated its great strengths: top-notch food in a really attractive and quite spectacular building, but with service that's friendly, human, and not in the least bit up itself.

Nice to have a separate vegetarian menu. Overall good was nice, we had a taster menu , some courses were abit more adventurous and different. Others were boring and could have been of the same standard as the others .

Had a vegan 7 course tasting menu for my partners birthday. It was amazing. The service was fantastic as well and would recommend anyone who is vegan to try this restaurant out. We thought the 7 course tasting menu wouldn’t be filling, however we were wrong. It was filling enough for both of us.

The staff members were polite and if we didn’t like something they would change it up.

My partner enjoyed his birthday very much.

Exceptional food,service and a sommelier (Stephen) who knows his white Burgundy wines better than anyone I have Er met. This is our new “go to” restaurant in London and the cheese selection is also amazing!

Really really lovely evening. It's a lovely room of course but all six of our dishes were exceptional (we ordered from the three course Opentable offer). Service too was terrific (and they very generously took a couple of things off because of a minor mix up which had affected our enjoyment not a jot) and we enjoyed everything enormously. Wine pretty pricey but par for the course I suppose. Definitely on the list for special evenings.

Very pleasant 3 course Chef’s Menu lunch, was a gift from family. Service from welcome right through to farewell was great, not over attentive but there in a flash when needed. Food was amazing, with three ample choices for each course. Ambience is great and the architecture of this old church very impressive and fascinating. Very enjoyable experience all round.

The 3 course set menu was absolutely fantastic- I would highly recommend the lobster bisque and sea bream, both were delicious! Considering the nature of the restaurant and the set menu for £43 was excellent value- will be going back!

Very disappointing cooking. The pumpkin soup was spoiled by unnecessary cream cheese and the risotto was just inept. Rice overcooked not enough wild mushrooms and far too much cheese including unheard of strips of cheese. Sludge really.

From the lovely and impressive room to the excellent and friendly service everything was faultless. The food was very good apart from a critic on one course from the tasting menu, which was my taste rather than a fault. I shall definitely return.

A Beautiful building, nicely decorated
Upon arrival they seated us but no one seem to care to ask for a drink or bring the menu
After 10 minutes we were able to attract attention and be able to order the wine
At the same time there was a strange smell around our table but they were able to move us to a different table.
It did take a while before we got the wine on the table as the sommelier was busy
As we eat often at Michelin star restaurants this was not a great performance to be honest
