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.

Love this restaurant and everything about it... We had a slight problem with our main course on this occasion... both chose the Cod, but it was so salty we had to send it back... chose another main course but the chef was definitively having an over the top evening with the salt...? The rest was lovely hopefully just a one off!

Had a catch up lunch with a friend earlier this week. It wasn't too busy, which was great for conversing. Sea bass dish was tasty & flavoursome. And dessert (choc choux bun with blackcurrant sauce) was very pleasing too. Good deal is on for 2 courses & a glass of bubbly currently!

Food was stunning, could not fault any of the dishes. Only 1 issue, two of my guests had the cheeseboard and they were not offered biscuits for the cheese at that point, she eventually came back when they were half way through the cheese.

Rare for me to give this strong a star rating but it would be hard to have had a better dining experience for as reasonable a cost.

We opted for the early evening three course menu du chef - not so much to save money as by the fact that we really liked the dishes on offer.

All proved to be superb - well, perhaps the seared mackerel fillets came a notch lower!

The cremation du Saumur was more enjoyable than many a modest champagne, and the carafe of Muscadet complemented our sea bass perfectly.

Thanks to all - not least for turning down the initially intrusive music!

I hadn’t eaten here for a long time. We had the 3 courses with glass of Champagne offer which was good value. I had the asparagus veloute, sea bream and cheese. The food was delicious. Good wine and enjoyed the glass of Champagne. The waiter was attentive and friendly. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely food in a wonderful atmosphere. I went with my 2 year old, my sister and her 6 month old. We couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. The staff were attentive and considerate to our needs and were at ease with dealing with little ones. We met Jeff Galvin who was in the kitchen - what a delight! Will definitely recommend and be back!

Glory rediscovered. Hadn’t been to the restaurant for a long time but will certainly be back. What an amazing restaurant this is. The minute you walk in you are made to feel special. The atmosphere is one of real quality, with splendid proper food to match, and supported by attentive and efficient service. Also, of particular note is the selection of good quality wines by the carafe. You can certainly understand why this restaurant is Michelin starred.

Definitely allocate the time for a set menu dinner We had the 7-course dinner and it lasted about 2 hours. It's worth it to be sure, but if you want a quicker turnaround, go a la carte. Definitely a great location to enjoy a romantic evening, and the dishes will definitely leave you titillated.

Everything was perfect - we were celebrating my daughter’s 30th birthday. The staff were attentive, professional and so helpful in every way. And the food was truly outstanding - in particular I highly recommend the crab lasagne and duck breast. We eat at fine restaurants on a regular basis and this was one of the best!

I went with my wife for her birthday. The ambience is fantastic and set the right mood immediately. The staff were friendly and attentive. We started with a cocktail. My wife said the vodka martini with olives was as good as she has had. We both selected the Menu Gourmand for dinner. I had the wine pairing and my wife selected beers. Initially my wife didn’t think the menu read very interesting. But each course was delicious and interesting. We were glad to have done that approach as the all the dishes we got try were ones we would not have wanted to pass up.
With cocktails, paired wine and two beers, the damage was not unexpected but just over £300. Excellent place for a special night if you aren’t going to worry about the price.

A lunch outing. We opted for the set three course menu with a glass of fizz. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar. A cocktail and a glass of red Burgundy. The barmen new has trade, good nimbles to accompany. A choice of three on each course, they seemed to have been chosen especially for us. One: soup, chicken, tart and icecream, other pate, fish and cheese. I'm not keen on fizz and they happiIy changed it for a glass of white. Presentation, service and quality very good. The background music was our era and not too loud. A very relaxed, enjoyable lunch. The wine is a tad on the expensive side. A 175ml glass at the bat £19.50. The same wine at the table by the bottle £79. So the booze was more expensive than the lunch. That aside would/will recommend.
