We absolutely loved our meal - the food was outstanding with excellent flavours and the whole experience & ambiance was lovely! Not the cheapest meal out, but for a special occasion it was amazing and well worth it. It was so refreshing to find somewhere of this quality that is completely plant-based. Well done, Mr Gauthier - we will return!

The big issue is vegan. We used to love Gauthier before it went vegan - food used to be outstanding and tasty. There is only so much you can do to make vegan food tasty. Portions were tiny and not really satisfying. If people only ate this food they would lack necessary protein and other essential minerals. The human species is not designed to be vegan - granted that we eat too much meat but there needs to be a happy medium, and that happy medium is NOT going vegan. The starters were tasty but small. The mains were minute and not very satisfying. The desserts were outstanding.
For me and my wife the experiment of going vegan did not work. Very sadly we shall not be coming again.

First visit for four of us.
We all had an enjoyable evening where the time flew by.
Taster menu with wine pairing was a great success. All courses were enjoyed and we each had our favourite course.
The service was excellent.
One of us was a non vegan and thoroughly enjoyed the meal, wine and evening.

Excellent vegan taster menu suitable for everyone. As 2 meat eaters the tastes, textures and flavours offered from the set taster menu were sublime. A real eye opener of what vegan food has to offer in the modern day.

The service and entire experience from beginning to end was excellent.

Stepping in from the hustle and bustle of Soho on a Saturday is like being transported into another world. The hushed ambience and discreet decor make this a wonderfully intimate venue. The 10 course tasting menu was simply bliss from start to finish. Particular favourites were the.....no actually it’s impossible to pick a favourite as they were all sublime. The service was perfect and the passion and warmth with which the staff talk
about the dishes creates the atmosphere of a big Gauthier family. If like us you are a full time vegan then you will truly appreciate the work that has gone into creating the different favours and depths. If you are at all curious about how good a purely plant based menu can be, just go and it will astound you.

Wonderful evening to celebrate 40 years together. Food,ambience, waiters, sommelier was excellent. Thank you David. This place is exceptional. Now it is vegan it has lost none of its appeal. Top classs.
Tiny gripe…..the men’s toilet is quite unpleasant. A lot of limescale, cheap paper towels, felt more like a pub toilet then somewhere exclusive.

Amongst the best food I've ever had and we've dined at some of the world's certified best restaurants! We had the tasting menu, not every dish hit the mark, but the majority did and REALLY came through. We're surprised as we had high expectations after hearing such great things, so we were fearful we'd set ourselves up a little for disappointment but the food is exemplary. The tomato amuse bouche and the truffle butter ravioli were our favourites

Fantastic food! Fantastic wine! The truffle risotto was one of the best things I have even eaten!

If I could recommend something would be transparent face masks for the staff - I know some theaters provide them for their employees to get more connection with the Clients.

Also, the music was too modern for my taste, but it could be my age :)

Already booked dinner for next month, can't wait.

A playful, and thoroughly well-executed tasting menu, with just the right amount of theatrical flourish. Combined with superlative service and pleasantly muted decor, Gauthier offers one of the finest evenings of food entertainment you could hope for. Particular credit to Lloyd for having the perfect balance between professionalism, poise, and personality. As well to the young sommelier whose bold and non-traditional choices added far more to the experience than a conventional wine pairing.

This was a lovely surprise, even though my expectations were already high. I had been to Gauthier years ago, when it was “merely” an excellent French restaurant.

Latterly — and I didn’t know this until we went — they have reinvented themselves, serving an entirely plant-based tasting menu. The food and service were exemplary. In particular, my wife is allergic to wheat, nuts and eggs, and they simply said, “we’ll take care of that” and proceeded to bring variations of some the dishes to accommodate her needs, all explained clearly.

Brilliant.

The food is incredible, service is friendly and professional. The atmosphere and vibe could have a little more oomph but it is a small fine dining room so can understand. Lovely date space or special occasion. I absolutely love what they are all about and the food is divine so it’s all worth it.

Great mini vegan tasting menu. Enjoyed every course and didn’t miss our usual seafood courses.
Staff friendly and attentive. Wine list was a bit limited though but our Argentinian Malbec was very nice.
