    We have been to Launceston Place on many occasions and has been one of our favourite restaurants in London. Would have rated outstanding in every category. Our visit this week was quite disappointing. There was a technical issue with the alarm system but that issue does not influence or bias our comments below. Compared to previous visits, the front desk and service were not as professional. They were clearly less experienced and seemed to lack some training. Whilst recognising the annoying technical issue with the frequent activation of the alarm system was outside restaurant staff’s control, staff response was poor. When the alarm went off, staff seemed to disappear (presumably to try and resolve the issue) and it took some time for staff to circulate around guests and advise there was no fire or problem. After several minutes, staff did circulate, apologise and explain there was a technical issue. Somewhat annoyingly, The technical issue reoccurred on several occasions. There was an early opportunity for staff to make a gesture to guests, eg a glass of champagne or wine, but it wasn’t until guests suggested somewhat later that a gesture would be appropriate, that staff offered a generous gesture. However the early opportunity had been lost. As for the food, the standard of the pork starter and fish main course were excellent - comparable to many previous visits - but the main course lamb was tough and nowhere near the standard we had become used to. Some of the other dishes were excellent (bread, pre-desserts) but others did not reach the standard we had became used to. We will probably visit the restaurant once again to see if our experience was just a blip but if not back to Launceston Place’s normal exceptional standard we will probably choose an alternative. This would be a shame.

    Wonderful restaurant . Relaxed but with beautiful food . I find it a bit dark at the back of the restaurant . Like the fun way you choose the menu like Connect 4 . Staff very nice . The only thing is the toilets are down some very steep stairs & small. Had a lovely experience & no urgency either . Highly recommend

    A unique and amazing experience - service was first rate from all staff. The wine pairing were perfection with a knowledge server. The food can be classed as very fancy - so if you have a fussy palate not all courses will suit everyone. The restaurant is very understated with shades of white and some more colourful art. Overall was a wonderful night of food and wine

    My husband and I love going to Launceton Place for celebrating a special occasion. The food is always really delicious, exciting and a super special treat. I always love the ways it’s inventively presented too. We ordered the 3 course menu, with each of us choosing different things to taste each others. But by the time you finish with coffee, you always seem to get 5 with the amuse bouche and petit fours. This time we treated ourself to a wine pairing that was perfectly chosen for each course by the delightful sommelier and really added to our special experience. I really like the way this restaurant has plenty of space for intimacy between the tables, freshly starched linen and very comfortable soft furnishing to absorb any sounds, giving you a feeling of being pampered. It’s so unusual to find in London these days.

    None of the courses is large but, with amuses bouches, bread course and petits fours the meal is balanced and satisfying so that one leaves contentedly well fed, especially as each dish is quite intense with complex but well-judged and complementary elements and flavours. Wines by the glass are well chosen for the cuisine, service is smooth and friendly and the background music is discreet, being just perceptible behind the hum of conversation. Standards here are high and consistent all round.

    Inspired innovative food beautifully presented with quite generous serves. Bread was superb. Very professional front of house with good and friendly rapport . Nicely paced delivery of food. Impressive choice of wine by the glass and a knowledgeable sommelier. Not cheap but still very good value for money.

    This was the second time that we have eaten at Launceston Place and it was excellent again. We had the Chef’s menu and all courses were superb. Highly recommended.

    Lovely evening - the staff were very attentive and brought us a little anniversary pudding at the end of the meal, which was a nice touch. The only let down was that my partner and I have some dietary requirements (not particularly onerous) and we emailed over a month in advance to let the restaurant know. We were told that the kitchen and waiters would be aware but this did not appear to be the case. After being brought the menu, we flagged this to the waiters once again yet were still served dishes containing items we had specifically mentioned we couldn't eat. Additionally, the substitutes for some of the dishes were not of an equal level in my opinion - for example, rather than a monkfish main, my partner was given a mushroom. We thought substituting for any other white fish would have shown a bit more effort to accommodate and it came across like a last minute scramble to put a dish together.
