From the outset La Trompette has been showered with accolades, a reflection of the love, care and energy that is invested in the restaurant by the dedicated team behind it. La Trompette was awarded a Michelin star in 2008.
A wonderful evening all round - especially enjoyed the sommelier’s wine recommendations. The sea bream starter was fabulous. Thank you.
This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. Each dish was perfect and the service impeccable. We will be a regular for sure.
Food was fantastic. We ordered the tasking menu with wine pairing. Timing was slow and wine sometimes arrived 10-15 mins before paired course. Food timing was slow with too long a wait between courses. Excellent presentation and food.
Although aware of its reputation, this was my first visit. My expectations were exceeded. Firstly the food: Our group of 4 had a range of fish and vegetarian options as well as the Berkshire deer. Quality of ingredients; precision of cooking and seasoning; selection of accompanying vegetables; visual impact, temperature and portion sizes could not be faulted. We all had rhubarb crumble and fears of sabotaging an otherwise healthy meal were unfounded. It was the lightest variant imaginable - almost souffle-esque. Secondly the staff: There were ample staff, proactive, very cordial but not falsely pally and not unnecessarily formal. I liked the ambiance - definitely a buzz to the place, but my colleagues and I were conversing without any difficulty or interference. This will not be my last visit!
Still great after all these years. Took my wife again this week for her 60th birthday and the food was splendid. This place has been consistently good for years. Please keep it up. No complaints except perhaps they should replace the glass in one of the windows! You still great after all these years. Took my wife again this week for her 60th birthday and the food was splendid.

Once again the food was excellent - but the service was superb, my wife has health issues which effects what she can eat, the staff were excellent especially Petra and they did everything to accommodate her needs - from the chef to the front of house staff.
La Trompette never fails to deliver - whether its a special occasion - or simply enjoying a leisurely lunch with a girlfriend. The warm welcome always sets the tone for a fabulous dining experience - the inviting menu, carefully considered amuse bouche and wonderful wine selection - take me back again now!
Faultless service, being given the time to enjoy each course - guarantees a swift return!

Food very good; Service could have been a little more attentive, particularly early on.
The restaurant was very welcoming and the food was amazing. The service seemd a little strange with only one of the staff taking orders and he could have been more aware of the diners, as it caused a little frustration among some diners when he was stood st the station. The sommelier took my requests for beer with good grace, but was excellent and attentive. Overall it ws an enjotable visit and we will be back.
very nice restaurant, excellent food and pleasant service
Food is always outstanding and the best value Michelin food in London.
This was really a stunning experience. We had the tasting menu with paired wines. All top notch and beautifully presented. The service was excellent- just the right balance between attentive and giving us space. Would thoroughly recommend.
Wonderful tasting menu for a Sunday lunchtime. Really well balanced dishes and a superb cheese board too. And great service. Perfect.
Overall a first class meal. Both our starters - mackerel and salad - were divine. Mains were good too, although I found my rare veal chop a bit too chewy, surprisingly. My wife's fish was excellent too. The sommelier's wine recommendation was very good and the soufflé was well worth the wait! Service was largely attentive although there were times we did have to try and catch a server's eye. The staff were warm and friendly and that's what counts. We'll be back.
We felt it took long time for dishes to arrive. .
Lovely lunch outside. We had the set lunch and it was great
Staff welcoming and friendly. Amuse-bouche and starter were outstanding; main course: cod in some sort of sauce - a bit 'meeeh?' (how do you spell that?) deer, pleasant; deserts good.
We had a table for four in the evening and had the dinner menu.
Great food and wine, good service and good atmosphere, restaurant was full.
Being coming here for years and food always fabulous - no disappointment on this visit either. But service was hit and miss, uncharacteristically. Slips included kicking chairs (twice) missed drinks orders (twice) having to ask for bread etc. Not good at this level. Was very busy with a large group so noise levels high. Overall still very good - rescued by the superb cooking - and hopefully the service and ambience slips are one-offs not the start of a trend...
Have been a patron of Trompette for nearly 20 years.
It never ceases to give me pleasure
Excellent food in very attractive surroundings tho the ambience has been borderline ordinary since the room was redecorated, must be 10 years ago now? The original vaguely New Yorkshire decor had real style.
The current iteration of colourful prints and off-white silk effect walls is at best ordinary and now looks tired........time for a decorative revamp in my op.
Food is as ever of superior quality tho the service on my most recent visit failed to rise(maintain) the standard one expects here.
A temporary blip, I’m sure, we’re all human after all.
I’m already looking forward to my next visit
Superb food, wine and service in a lovely setting.
Very good food and excellent service
The setting is always elegant, the service always good. Food is the only lottery, as the quality, while never bad, is not consistent, and when the menu changes some great dishes are often lost and not replaced with ones that are as amazing.
On this occasion, they also delivered some food quite rare, when a medium/well was requested and might have made my guest feel that they were a little more concerned at the error than simply saying "I will let the chef know".
It's fair to say that they were probably ordering the dish a little overcooked, but that is no reason to punish them by delivering it underdone.
Overall. Good but not great... the phrase "damned with faint praise comes to mind".
Excellent food, wine and service. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful accommodating one of our parties very specific food/allergy requirements. An outstanding night out!!
Favourite lunch spot , great service, menu always excites! Quiet Wednesday lunch which was a shame for buzz but still had a great time.
We love treating ourselves to a meal at La Trompette; the food is consistently delicious, the service top notch and attentive. But also friendly and warm hearted, which can be rare in restaurants at this level. Special shout out to the sommelier and manager!
Overall it Was great. Relaxed lunchtime atmosphere with great service. Two of us chose the set lunch menu but We shared four desserts. Should have had the tasting men 😉 5*
We have neglected La Trompette for several years but it is just as ‘good’ as always... Good means fabulous dishes, perfect service and overall a wonderful dinner! Thank you ‘team@latrompette’!
It was a near perfect experience - house manager a little stiff and humourless but Somoliers advice and overall approach was superb and food outstanding. will go there again p
Excellent food, excellent service. Thoroughly recommended.
As always, very good food, consistent warm welcome and atmosphere, very good service. A pleasure to go. The lunch time menu is very good value.
Perfect as always
Remains consistently great one of the few that does so in Chiswick
Truly outstanding without being pompous in any way. We had the most delicious food and wonderful service as well as fantastic wine at very reasonable prices for the quality and particularly liked the way we were not rushed in any way unlike some restaurants that will only allow you a 2 hour seating.
We had the tasting menu, which at £75 for 8 courses I believe is outstanding value (no wine)! My wife is pregnant and the restaurant happily adjusted the tasting menu to accommodate like giving her the option to swap out one of the starters for something from the a la carte menu or cooking the scallop all the way through.
Service, as expected, was very good.
Quite noisy but not in a bad way.
Fab service and blown away by the taster memu
Sensational food, attentive and helpful service, great wine list, lovely room.
Still my very favourite place for a sneaky treat lunch! The service is excellent without being stuffy. The staff are very welcoming and we always feel at home. Thank you :-)
