Had a nice dinner but was expecting finest dishes as per Robluchon reputation. A bit disappointed
The food is exceptional, in fact so exceptional that my wife and I realise we should not go too often or the experience will cease to be special. Food, ambience, service all a delight even for a pre-theatre meal with hardly any other diners present.
I took my girlfriend for our year anniversary celebration, and this restaurant certainly has the wow factor. Quiet on a Sunday, which was perfect.
The staff were pleasant in all aspects, and unlike many Michelin starred restaurants, established a rapport and smiled. The food menu was well explained to my girlfriend (her first time fine dining).
Thus I will say it is a fine dining experience, thus if you’re looking for mounds of food on a plate, you’re missing the point. From starters to desserts, it was a culinary delight. Not cheap, but you don’t observe cost effective when you’re going all out.
We were even presented with a free anniversary dessert which brought plenty of smiles. Overall, a wonderful experience.
My reservation was at 21:30 but waited 1 hour! It’s very frustrating! What is the purpose of making reservation?!!!
amazing restaurant where you can see the chef and his team cooking in front of you - great vibe and great food
Enjoyed the lunch very much.The food was perfect and the service was just right.
It was magnificent. I cannot say enough good things. The food was spectacular. The service was prompt, professional, and friendly. Everything was perfect.
We went for a pre-theatre supper. We arrived promptly at 5:30 allowing one hour and 45 minutes for us to eat. Not a long time bt not too short either. We informed the server of this and he recommended the prix-fix option and we took his recommendation.
Still was a very good selection of options from the menu. Everything was prepared beautifully and in general the service was very pleasant. We had finished our main course with 40 minutes to spare and all seemed to be going well. That's when it all went badly. It took over 20 minutes to clear the plates and I informed the server we were running short on time. He barely acknowledged me but we waited until we were down to 15 minutes and he said okay. with 5 minutes before leaving I asked for the check without dessert. A different server was very apologetic and gave us the check without the change for the final course. As we were getting up the original server brought out dessert and gave me a confused look. I explained it again and the manger came and apologized as well, but it was a bit ridiculous for the server to bring the dessert as he well knew of our time constraints.
The food itself was good , but not exceptional although visually beautiful. I might consider trying again some time.
Booked through Open Table but did not realise that to have access to the cheapest menu we needed to have chosen it on line. Undaunted we chose the winter menu with 3 courses.
The tables are all at bar height so we were perched but the high chairs are relatively comfortable. The serving staff were very good indeed. We particularly appreciated the advice from the sommelier and the friendly but in no way vulgar approach of others who served us.
We had a good view of the kitchen and were impressed by the calm efficiency. The food was delectable. The amuse-bouch were lovely to look at and fun to taste including one with a touch of Campari. The starters were truly excellent with marinaded mackerel accompanied by a perfectly balanced seasoning and amusing presentational artistry. The beetroot was perhaps less exciting but a very good example of attention to detail giving pleasure to both the eyes and the mouth. The jambonneau, an original take on choucroute, was another joy and the halibut with pleurottes and a delicious sauce pleased my dining partner. Portion size was quite adequate and both dishes were accompanied by Robuchon's signature purée de pommes de terre. The desserts were in the very top league of fine patisserie and the baba au rhum had a wonderful glass of the best rum we have ever tasted (distilled in Kent we were told).
We spent longer than most other diners and had coffee to finish which came with mignardises and a price tag. A wonderful experience altogether. By our modest standards it was expensive but we both thought that the quality meant that at £154 including water and 2 glasses of wine it was very good value.
I usually love l'Atelier, but this wasn't the best night this time for Valentine's day. Service was discreet which is a good thing, but I had to ask 2 or 3 times to get the wine list for example. The music was a bit loud and the fact that so many people were eating downstairs maybe disturbed the staff this time? Food was really amazing tough, well done to the chef.
Each dish is a little work of art containing taste bombs. Eating at the counter is always entertaining and adds a little theatre to the meal. A great experience.
We had a great time at the Atelier! Went for dinner pre-theatre and decided to go for the 3 course menu which was deliciosu. Could have the beetroot tartar over and over! The atmosphere is great, we were sat at the bar so could see everything going on in the kitchen which was very entertaining. Staff were very attentive with us and service was excellent. Would go back and have been recommending it to all my friends
The kitchen was slammed bc there was a big party upstairs and they were too short staffed to open the other kitchen. We ordered a bunch of small plates and yet the dinner took 3 hours, and then we rushed them at the end. The food was fine. Not wowed by much except the Jerusalem artichoke dish. Overall, we as experienced travelers and foodies, we were not very impressed. Sadly.
This must be one of Londons most over priced and over served restaurants - The staff act like desperate commission based salesmen looking to push you from aperitif, to wine, to dessert wine and so on.
We ordered from the LA CARTE TASTING (small plates menu) and the Roasted lobster, vegetable raviolis with in an aromatic herb and spice broth (The toughest lobster I've ever encountered, really terrible) from the LA CARTE menu.
The total for two was £545 - I've eaten better meals in London for under £200 - I'd rate this place 9/20.
This is the last time I'll ever eat here (I eat out around 3x per week in London)
It was an interesting experience dining at the countertop facing the kitchen. Service was excellent as was most of the food. The only blemish. The cod my wife ordered was undercooked.
amazing food great service the best spaghetti with truffle sauce ever
Intimate atmosphere around the counter. Great bar upstairs.
Excellent food and service, great atmosphere. Prefer table seating rather than bar seating, but, we enjoyed it nevertheless. The team is charming and personal, whilst the food is superb.
Wonderful experience. Friendly helpful staff. Exquisite tasting menu. Lovely decor and ambiance.
went for lunch on a monday - choosen the 39£ menu (3 courses + 1 wine glass + 1 coffee) = TOP ! food was excellent - creative - tasty - wine very good - service very nice and fast - we had a pretty good time
lunch vanwege se verjaardag van mijn vrouw.
het 5 gangen menu was heerlijk van smaak en presentatie en de bediening zeer vriendelijk en attent!
Bit dated. Great food. Inattentive service.
Friendly service, nice ambiance, excellent food. It is nicer to have dinner at the bar than at the table, so you can see the kitchen.
We had a delightful evening on Friday, thank you. We come to your restaurant for the very special and most delicious food, great service and ambiance which is always of the highest standard.
Once again L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon exceeded in every expectation. With this high quality restaurant, beautiful moody interior with perfect lighting, each dish,carefully served with love,passion and hard work is worth every penny of every mouthful. Presentation is immaculate,flavours are succulent,service is second to none. The entire experience of eating at this restaurant is seriously like no other in London. It ticks every box in terms of quality,service,ambience,flavour,presentation,environment and the staff make every guest feel as they should do when dining out. Certainly my most favourite restaurant in London.
Delicious but overpriced for lunch, probably why it was too empty which means little athmosphere; Shane cus cooking is v fine.
Really poor service which we pointed out at that time . Should have refused to pay the service charge really
Very nice place, the food is delicious, subtle flavors that make your palate happy
Not the best quality L’Atelier like I said for Patara, they should always if have franchises keep the same food quality standards in every restaurant they have, disappointed, the one on Paris is so much better I wouldn’t recommend this one sadly
Great foie gras and quail! Sommelier really made great recommendation. Service friendly but not the best I have come accross.
I'll put it quite simply... was absolutely heavenly! I won't be forgetting the taste of the exquisite dishes anytime soon. Loved it !
Food was ok one of the waiters punched the wall right in front of us service let it down
Excellent food as always but the service was not up to usual standards. In particular we had a very long wait (30 mins +) for our desserts which meant we had to rush the end of our meal
The progression of the “new” tasting menu made no sense, the food was mediocre and the unorganized service did not help the matter. Truly disappointed at this London staple.
There was a small mouse at the redtaurant and we noticed it as we were left as the last 2 tables
When we informed the personelle they were surprised but noone apolıgized. Just said this is the first time such a thing happens
I have been to this restaurant several times in the past but not for a few years. I had previously always rated it highly. This time however there was something lacking. The food was not quite as good as before and it was difficult to get the attention of the staff - they seem to walk around looking at anything but the guests. Not sure about the side of mash 'served with everything'!
We chose to sit upstair & were arranged the table next to the open kitchen, so it was great to see how the chefs prepared your food & if you don't mind all the smell stick to your hair & clothes ><" by sitting so close. We ordered à la carte, the food was excellent as always. Unfortunately we didn't receive the complimentary dessert pops anymore 😅
Will return soon...
Excellent Michelin starred restaurant with exceptional menu. Great atmosphere and wine list. Bit pricey but plenty of cheap places in the West End if this is what you are after.
Great food but the standout of the night was the sensational service that turned a birthday dinner into a very special night.
We had a very disappointing experience here. Service was horrible - way below what is expected of a Michelin restaurant. It took 15 min before we received our menus then another 10 min to receive a vegetarian menu. When the first course finally came the waiter gave my dish to my daughter and vice versa. I told them I was gluten free but was served food with gluten although they said the chef would adjust the food accordingly. After 1 1/2 hour we still had not received out main dish even though I told them we had to go catch a show and needed to leave. They kept saying the food was coming but it didn't come until I complained again and again. As a compensation we were offered free dessert but as a result we were late for our show. I would NOT recommend. Standard is going down hill.
