Another faultless meal here on Saturday. We always take the VIP Lunch which includes 2 glasses of wine and a glass of champagne, it's excellent value and the food is always excellent. We've been frequenting Gauthier for 4 years now and dine there 2-3 times a year.

This was a Christmas gift. We had the most beautiful lunchtime treat. The food was fabulous. Stunning to look at and even better to taste. Perfect portion sizes, fascinating flavours and combinations. Wines matches to the courses. Would love to return to try the tasting menu, perhaps the vegetarian tasting menu.
In summary a perfect gift, to receive and to give!

A lovely lovely place. I went there for my birthday. The food was incredible: I had the vegan lunch tasting and my companions had the meat/fish version. Both menus were really lovely and pretty good value including a nice glass of champagne as well. An amazingly calm environment for a special lunch.

We went for the deluxe lunch for a birthday, which offered a superb seasonal array of amuse bouches, breads, and palate cleansers as well as the three courses. Gauthier Soho offers reliably decadent meals with discreet thoughtful service and a calm oasis in the bustle of Central London.

Overall very disappointing. We chose this restaurant for the vegan tasting menu. It was a lazy and thoughtless menu... and extremely overpriced. The service was pretentious and stuffy.. and we were not once offered a top up of our drinks... even though I clearly mentioned that we would be wanting to take a bottle after our initial drinks...

Absolutely awful experience.

Cannot fault this restaurant in any way. On the four occasions I have had lunch here the food, service and ambience have been excellent. Having been vegetarian all my life, this restaurant was a great find and all the different dishes I have eaten here have been imaginative and delicious, with some excellent combinations of flavours.

This visit, my third, was with a customer for lunch. Having to ring the doorbell to enter makes the visit more of a special occasion. The venue is very cosy - equivalent to the dining room of a well-to-do house. The service is excellent - a good mix of efficient but friendly. Our dietary requirements were happily catered for.
The food was exquisite - delicious tastes and beautifully presented. A comprehensive wine selection and great sommelier who knew his stuff and made recommendations towards the cheaper end of the list (this always puts me at rest - that they're not taking you for a ride).
When visiting other restaurants there are frequently small negatives but not so with Gauthier - a restaurant I would unreservedly go back to again and again.

Amazing food , particularly good for vegan and vegetarians.
The tasting menu was amazing and they were very flexible and were happy for some people to have the non vegan tasting while others have the the vegan one as long as you all have the tasting menu.
Great service
Lovely old house so very cosy .

Lunch at Gauthier Soho last Tuesday was the best meal I've had in London since the last time I had lunch there. It is truly quite superb and the set lunch menus are exceptionally good value too. I cannot say anything about this restaurant that is not positive, except perhaps that the loo is a little small! The service manages to achieve that rare combination of expert and convivial. Bravo!

Was eagerly looking forward to this as one of renowned vegan menus in london
The food itself was good and in some courses outstanding (the roasted saffron squash and the valbuena dessert in particular)

The major reason for the poor review is the service. We ordered two tastings menus and two bottles of wine. Yet it took over 30 minutes from the moment we were seated to place our order - despite constantly trying to get the attention of our servers. We were consistently ignored throughout our meal for reasons I cannot fathom. This is a Michelin starred restuarant in London, and ex post I was extremely disappointed with this part of the experience.

My first visit to this fabulous restaurant. The menu is varied and met the needs of both meat eaters and vegetarians in our party.

Wonderful dishes served with surprises and treats between courses.

The venue is full of character and quirks which add to a great experience.

Finally the staff were attentive but not intrusive.

Really looking forward to going back soon

Quality of the food was good, but the autumn vegan tasting menu was too sweet for our pallet. Cooked fruit in most courses and a pumpkin/plantain/coconut combo had us wishing for something more savoury. By the time the desserts were wheeled in front of us our sweet tooth did not need to be satisfied anymore. So we didn't enjoy the dessert as much as we could have either. Hopefully the winter tasting menu will be better. This place is still worth a visit for a special occasion with generally very good service and a nice bit of quiet in busy Soho.
