The service was exemplary. From the moment we stepped into the hotel we were treated with great politeness and consideration.
The Connaught bar is a great place for an aperitif. Elegant with great lighting. The food was also delicious. Fresh ingredients strong flavours.

Everything wonderful, but service at the table is not perfect
Waiters lean across diners to pour water
3 times waiters tried to clear plates when one of us had clearly not finished
one of us was drinking wine by the glass and was not offered a second glass which had to be asked for. there was misdirection to the disabled toilet
Do not spoil a brilliant evening with small lack of attention to detail

This was A birthday treat and definitely a memorable one! What a fun way to start the meal by choosing your courses like a board game. The starters and mains were amazing, and although the desserts weren’t perfect, the overall meal was fantastic! The highlight was the signature Foie Gras , served with black truffle and freshly baked brioche. Another favourite was the Lobster dish, served with a deliciously rich sauce of tandoori, carrot and coriander.

The dining room was very smart with dark wood panelling, yet the atmosphere was rather relaxed. A shout-out also to the excellent staff.

The restaurant is beautiful and so cosy, the service was very good and not too much as we could see in some michelin stars restaurants, the food was delicious. We had the foie gras with pistachio, the halibut and the white truffle dessert all were excellent. I recommend that restaurant. A huge well done to Hélène Darroze and team and also the restaurant team who was amazing.

Exceptional Service combined with unusual imaginative food made this a very memorable lunch for my wife's birthday. The set menu is excellent value for such fine dining but the choice is very limited so fussy eaters will not be happy. The game pie was delicious but unusual, the smoked eel was fantastic as was the venison. My son had the Kobi beef which was exceptional but at £85 extra for a very small piece, slightly too expensive.

Overall this is a beautiful dining room, serving Michelin star food combined with truly exceptional service.

Possibly the best in London. The price is however really high - most of the good stuff has significant surcharges so if you want to try their best dishes you end up spending far more than the prefix. Still worth it.

Utterly delicious, one of the best meals in recent years, if not the best and eat all over the world.

The range of flavours, the depth of tastes, the quality of the detail is second to none but be prepared to pay - a lot.

The negatives are too many extra costs for the choice dishes on top of an already pricey tasting menu pushing the bill much higher. The wines too very overpriced, in my opinion, for example, a wine I drank the week previously was almost triple the price here, bit cheeky really.

But, if you have to try a least one top restaurant in London it should be this, without doubt, a life experience.

The food is still good here, but the prices creep ever upwards. Especially the wine list. Cheaper wines around £120, most good ones £200-300 Do not come here if you are intending to drink heavily.

7 course chosen. A large amount of food. Most was great. Seasoning was strong on some dishes and some interesting flavours combinations.

Great staff. Service of food was slower than hoped and lead to long evening. This was somewhat expected due to complexity of dishes. I will book for long lunch rather than a late finish dinner next time.

Overall a wonderful experience.
