I really can't fault Le Caprice.
Excellent greeting to perfect table. Staff all brilliant and service faultless.
Food very interesting, portions perfect size and good value.
I could have been upsold some vegetables to go with set menu main course but I suppose I could have asked.
I was slightly cold but everybody else said it was nice and cool on a hot day!

I’ve been visiting Le Caprice for over 30 years, and while the menu has changed over that time, the atmosphere remains civilised, the service attentive but understated, and the attention to detail second to none. This was my daughter’s first visit to celebrate her 21st birthday, and it was a perfect continuation of a family association with Le Caprice. We look forward to many years of fine dining there, into the future.

Another wonderful visit to one of my all time favourite restaurants in London. I'm never disappointed in the food or service - absolutely second to none. Nick was playing away on the piano and happy to take requests....this really adds to the atmosphere. After our delicious dinner we sat at the bar for a couple of hours, where Simon, one of the barmen, kept our drinks topped up. It's certainly not a cheap night out, but if you're looking for a night out where everything is perfect, then Le Caprice is the place to go!

Good vibe. Lively but not busy despite being full. Service was well paced and not pushy on the drinks which were in themselves averagely priced for London.

My wife ordered off the menu (Caesar salad and eggs Benadict) which was accepted without question and arrived beautifully prepared. This is why we love La Caprice.

I dined with two colleagues. We had a very good meal and once seated we had prompt and unobtrusive service from very good front of house staff.
There was a short wait while we partly waited for our table but partly waited for our colleague... but ghee is a very nice bar for a cocktail while waiting and I think the wait was simply reorganisation of arrivals and we were the more obviously willing!
All three thought the food was well cooked, beautifully presented and served at tgecorrect time.

Good overall. Was surprised to find 70 pounds of ‘discretionary’ service fee added to the bill which I realized only later. I would have tipped regardless, but usually in London, this seemed a bit odd. Else food and service were good.

It’s always good to try new things, follow the latest trend, sometimes this delivers surprising but enjoyable meals other times it can leave you feeling disappointed. At Le Caprice however in my experience you are never disappointed, the food albeit simple is exceptionally tasty and the service impeccable. The only surprise here is they have been able to consistently maintain the standard for so long.

Romaric atmosphere with pianist in the house on a Friday night. Good food. Prawns (starters) were very tasty and tender and the steak was juicy n well marbled. Apple sake dessert is a must try. Le Caprice is one of our favourite restaurants in London. Tables are fairly wide apart and helps to contribute to pleasant dining experience.
