L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon restaurant in London’s West Street near Covent Garden is one hot dining experience. From the stable of Joel Robuchon, holder of 29 Michelin stars, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon brings stunning Spanish and Japanese-inflected French cooking to the capital. The ground floor L’Atelier, chic red and black minimalism, is where you perch on high stools and admire the chefs in the theatre kitchen cooking tiny, beautiful dishes of intense flavour, served sushi-style. The first floor La Cuisine offers equally marvellous cooking in a bright, monochrome space with traditional seating. Dishes include divine pig trotter on parmesan toast, mini burger with beef and foie gras, mackerel on thin tart with Parmesan shavings and olives, and magical puddings like chartreuse soufflé. The wines are of the highest order, as is the service. L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon is celeb central and foodie heaven all in one terrific West End location.

We came pre theatre, and ate at the bar. Think it's the best restaurant experience we've ever had (and we eat out an awful lot). The atmosphere was calm and welcoming, the menus and wine lists offered a great range and the staff were just lovely. The food and wine were just gorgeous, and sitting at the bar gave us the opportunity to watch our food being prepared. A truly fantastic experience!

This is the first Michelin Star restaurant I visited not only once. The food is great and seating by the bar is unique in this class of the restaurants. There is much more noise than any other restaurant of this class.

Even, they are in the top of the London restaurants you do not feel like on a formal dinner with the king. Honestly, in many other restaurants I feel often overwhelmed with the formality, but not here! L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon is a top restaurant, when I feel well.

Actually, it may be too noisy for some people.

We had a great vegetarian tasting menu and that fulfilled 100% of our needs.

This is one of the best French restaurant I have been to. The occasion was for my wife's birthday and we really appreciate the restaurant effort to make it a very special day for her by offering a small birthday cake. The food is out of this world and the staff very attentive. The only spoiler on that evening was that the aircon had broken down and the heat wrecked the experience.

Upon arrival we were greeted and seated at the high table (a long bar like table with views of the cooking area) by a very pleasant lady. We sat directly in front of the chefs plating tables and had an amazing view of their amazing masterpieces coming to life, some of which we later came to enjoy. My parner and i went there to celebrate our 13th anniversary and it went off without a hitch. We ordered the 7 course tasting menu and i had a lovely fruity red to go with dinner while my partner opted for a couple wonderful passion fruit cocktails. Our server was great and very attentive explaining every dish in a clear concise manner. The food was amazing and flowed seamlessly from course to course. There was one dish left unfinished because when it came my partner just did not have the stomach or should i say liver for it (more of a moral decision than that of taste)... we were told we could have opted for something else which was nice but it was not a big deal as we knew what we had let ourselves in for... besides the foie gras (which was very good) hiccup everything else was to die for. The whole experience was second to non and i would recommend this place to everyone. The atmosphere, ambience, decoration and staff were perfect. The chefs were amazing and the look of concentration and focus which grabed thier faces while preparing and plating the dishes was a sight to behold and one rarely witnessed. The teppanyaki style is something i never expected frome haute cuisine... great experience in a beautiful laid back setting no need for the dinner jacket although you would not feel out of place in one

Long and short having dined in many of londons top restaurants this place is up there with the best of them amazing atmosphere staff experience and food. In a casual laid back setting, Definately worth a look in.
P.s we got a free anniversary dessert which was the coconut icecream i really wanted to try... Thanks Guys!

We were looked after very well at the chefs table. Attention to details like when we wanted top ups, readily answering any questions we had and giving us a special dessert at the end to celebrate the occasion.
Food was very good and wonderfully put together.
Great ambiance. Will definitely go back.
