I have to say we are always looking for fantastic but affordable food. The luxury fixed price lunch fits that bill and is our favourite but an occasional dip into the tasting lunch gets you access to the sublime truffle risotto. If the deals could be combined with an occasional corkage free day we would be struggling to think of reasons to go anywhere else (I have some great claret that needs drinking).

Gauthier Soho was lovely, really delicious and novel food. Felt like good value getting the 5 course lunch tasting menu - a £100 voucher for two got us a glass of champagne, some bread and vegan pate to start, the five courses and some little sweets/truffles to finish. The waiters were all very attentive.

Fantastic - as always. In my humble opinion this restaurant is the best in London for value, consistency and of course the food - beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff are very professional - attentive, knowledgeable and unobtrusive at the same time. This was our monthly treat and I have already booked a table for lunch in July. Could not recommend it highly enough! Thank you all for looking after us so well.

This has been my favourite restaurant in London for the best part of a decade. The food is delicious but always perfectly balanced. Some other chefs add ingredients just for presentation or because they sound chefy, but not so with Alexis Gauthier- every ingredient is there for a reason and perfectly complements the other ingredients on the plate. This is also one of the few restaurants where ardent carnivores, vegetarians and vegans are all equally well catered for. The truffle risotto is the best I've ever tasted and the Louis XV dessert is chocolate heaven! 10/10!

The food was great, we chose the tasting menu, very good value.the service was excellent, somewhat too formal. what I did not like is where we sat upstairs(middle floor ), the restaurant is small and you can hear other guests ' conversations , it is not a place for an intimate dinner/lunch/meal.

Fabulous Saturday lunch - my first visit to Gaultier, and certainly not my last.
We had the tasting menu with the sommelier wine selection. Not cheap at £80, but certainly worth it. The food was exceptional, the wines even better, and the service was perfect - attentive without being intrusive.
Take into account the central but surprisingly quiet location, and the tasteful, calm and well-spaced dining room, and you'll find Gaultier offers an experience that must surely rank as one of the very best in London.

I have been to Gautier Soho many times before and generally it is excellent but this visit was very disappointing. The service was very poor. It took them half an hour to bother to bring us menus after seating us and we had to request water more than once. The food was good but not up to usual standards. Hopefully just a blip.

This is a very cosy restaurant with extremely competent and friendly staff. They are efficient and happy to chat. I was in a hurry as I was dining pre-show and they were more than happy to accommodate me. On top of this the food is extraordinary- all dishes looked and tasted magnificent. The faux gras is astonishing. I have already booked another visit and this time will spend time to properly enjoy the tasting menu.

Delicious 3 course decadent lunch with attentive service. There were six of us at lunch and everyone was thrilled with the delicious food and overall experience -- even the Vegan in our group who is a notoriously picky eater! All in all a fabulous afternoon!

The menu changes with the seasons and we all hope to return to Gauthier soon.

We had a lovely leisurely lunch to celebrate my partners birthday. We particularly liked the ambience of the dining room, with the white linen tablecloths and sense of space around the tables. The staff were most attentive, efficient and friendly. The balance of the meal was perfect. The menu had adequate choice and creative dishes with delicious flavours. They were artistically presented on plates with designs to complement the food. The quantity and variety of the wines was just right. There was a nice touch to recognise the birthday occasion. This was a special outing for us, at the top end of our budget. However we thought it was very good value and appreciated that the bill was exactly as we expected. It was easy to book online and the information provided was helpful and accurate.

A quiet back street setting in Soho, the non-descript townhouse gives no clues as to what may be inside. The lunchtime tasting menu was an excellent choice with five course paired superbly with wine. The signature dish black truffle risotto was sublime and the sea trout extremely delicate. The chocolate Louis desert was almost too much chocolate, but paired with a good red, we got through. Would recommend and will return.
