La Trompette is owned by Nigel Platts-Martin and Bruce Poole, the partnership behind Chez Bruce in Wandsworth and The Glasshouse in Kew. It therefore serves some of the best food in London but without the formality or prices associated with the capital's top end establishments.The comfortable and stylish dining room is a vibrant, busy and friendly place to be with service that is highly professional yet relaxed and informal.

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.

Unbelievable service and amazing food. People sitting next to me were very loud and a bit rude. Other than that it was amazing. Thank you

This has been the worst Michelin star I have ever been. Food was far from been amazing, just an average French restaurant, expensive, boring atmosphere, nothing exciting about the experience. We had to wait 30 minutes on "the bar" (where all empty glasses were being dropped), we had to wait 30 minutes between dishes at 11pm on a Friday, none of the food really got us impressed.

Great food. Restaurant not happy to have a small baby, sat us away from the main dining area facing into kitchen door and staff service area (despite restaurant being empty on arrival and just under half full when we left). Were told on arrival the ‘policy is no children’.

An excellent meal all round. All four of us loved all of the food and the wine was superb. The manager gave great advice about the wine had chosen with a detailed description of the taste and its suitability to pair with the main course of deer
All in a wonderful experience

Everything about our experience at La Trompette was incredible. Well crafted imaginative dishes and flavour combinations and each dish (we tried a lot!) was delicious. Well deserving of its accolades and definitely worth visiting again. Recommended. Especially the incredible desserts!!

Staff are outstanding. Patra has a wonderful team around her, ably assisted by Matteo who was a lifesaver salvaging the rest of our meal after 2 inedible pickled starters. Aleksandros helped select a wonderful wine from Santorini which along with the cocktails of the day, were the stars of the evening. Alessandro really made us feel very welcome,too. Thank you,all. Unfortunately, for us, the food just was not up to scratch. The restaurant had had a huge day before we sat down for the late seating service and whilst the service out front was impeccable, the kitchen lagged behind. Which was a real shame. The pickling on both starters ( beets and cuttlefish) was the worst we have ever experienced and sadly had to send it back.
It ruined things for us, food wise for the rest of the set 3 course menu. Main course was lovely (2 halibuts) which said the kitchen can get it oh so right as well as oh so wrong, hit and miss really. The fish was most definitely a hit. The restaurant was packed to capacity and was very noisy. There was no music played.
Overall, we would come back if there was an a la carte to just have the fish and enjoy the Greek wine again. But we would pass on the set menu. Thanks again to the whole team front of house.

Overall an absolutely fantastic meal. I have eaten in many restaurants in London and all round the World (New York, Tokyo, San Francisco, Paris, Amsterdam, Sydney etc) and can say without any hesitation that La Trompette is one of the very, very best.

The food is delicious; lovely starters, brilliantly cooked mains and gorgeous puddings/sweets

Fantastic wines.

Great Service.

And a great atmosphere.

Some inspired cooking but service functional only. This was my first visit to La Trompette, chosen to celebrate both my friend’s and my birthday in style. Based on reviews and a Michelin star I had high expectations. My first course with raw bream was beautifully refreshing with sharp citrus flavors and an icy crunch. The ravioli with morels and pecorino was delicious but slightly overwhelmed by too many raisins. The cocktails were too slow to arrive and my Mohito was too bitter. Service was otherwise efficient, even over efficient, it needed more of a personal touch. Room is large and proximics good. Would try La Trompette again but not without slight reservations.

My partner and myself came here as a birthday treat for ourselves, could not fault the service, very attentive but not overly fussy. There was a great choice of wines for every budget, as for the food, well we both have eat at many fine dining restaurants, but considering it holds one Michelin star, the food was at best average, even just ok. We both left thinking the food was a let down

It was very good but not 'outstanding' or particularly memorable. We ordered from the à la carte menu. Everything was very tasty, but nothing blew me away. I have been here before and have previously enjoyed it more. However it was a Friday night and very busy, so service was slow. However the staff were all good, very polite and friendly which was nice. The wine list is extensive, but very expensive. I would come again but not for a good while and perhaps not on a Friday.
