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.

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!

Everything about it was amazing! I want to go back just for the soufflé desert!!! The marshmallows with coffee are amazing! Highly recommend the restaurant.
Also they were very helpful with my food allergies.

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

We had a lovely time. The food was amazing and the service was attentive, warm and friendly. The location is beautiful and with the tasting menu paired with wine it was reasonably priced for the quality.
Would recommend for a special occasion.

Dined here twice, the food the 1st time was decent but it wasn't great the 2nd time around, not what I'd expect for a 1 star Michelin restaurant and certainly not with the prices charged. The terrine was completely inedible and the guinea fowl was incredibly salty.

Got the special tasting menu and matching wines. Portions were extremely small, wine pairing was really not good. Tiny portions of wine of very mediocre wines. Service I’ve was very slow and not pleasant. Not sure how this restaurant has a Michelin Star! Overall way overpriced with average food.

The waiter recomanded chefs menu. When we wanted to order he said it's too late because it was few minutes after 19:00. It looked like he didn't really wanted us in the restaurant. It was humiluating

We had the 10th anniversary celebration tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was superb: very subtle combinations of flavours, cooked to perfection. The wines selected for the wine pairing were spot on, carefully sourced from a wide variety of regions and domaines, including some quite rare finds. The service was excellent: friendly, attentive and efficient. The sommelier in particular was very knowledgeable and talked about each wine in detail. The splendid setting of this former chapel is the final thing that made this meal a special and memorable occasion. Pity about the background music: too pop, when something cooler and a bit more sophisticated would, in our view, have been more appropriate for the place - but that's a very minor detail.

We ate at Galvin La Chapelle as part of the London Restaurant festival. The menu was a tasting menu of their favourite meals. The service was amazing, attentive but not over the top. The food was good but both my husband and I felt slightly underwhelmed... I would try it again, but probably not until I have ticked a few other places off my list.
