It's worth going just to try the souffle - its exceptional. Could have eaten it twice over.

First time dining at Odette’s and we will definitely be back.

Lovely fresh food, creative and modern menu and attentive service with a strong wine list.

Restaurant has made a number of adjustments in light of Covid-19 to ensure it feels safe and secure and tables are well placed and nicely spaced out.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, it was our first time dining at Odette’s but I can safely say it won’t be our last. The food was outstanding from start to finish and easily the best meal we’ve eaten this year. Bryn Williams’ menu is exquisitely crafted. From the delicious simplicity of the soda bread to the dramatic, rich complexity of the desserts. The wine was excellent and very good value for the quality. The service, atmosphere and overall experience simply could not have been bettered. While the restaurant has clearly paid every attention to social distancing guidelines and heightened hygiene this was the closest we have come to managing to forget about the pandemic because everything has been so artfully taken care of. Our waiter took the time and care to notice it was my boyfriend’s birthday and tailored his dessert beautifully and tastefully to this. Odette’s manage to create a vibrant atmosphere but give each table plenty of space so you have privacy at the same time as enjoying the bustle. In two words, eat here!

A lovely experience, friendly professional service and delicious food. We went at lunchtime and it was a really nice and relaxed ambience (with all Covid health and safety measures such as distancing observed) but still felt like a treat. We went with a la carte, set menu looked really good too. The mushroom risotto with truffle was a special and is worth a mention, as was the beef on the menu.

We tried the tasting menu with the paired wines and it was fantastic. The information provided about the dishes and wines was really interesting but not in anyway intrusive. We had booked to celebrate an anniversary and it will be one to remember.

Lovely meal and ambience was perfect. It was a shame that when we were booking we were not informed that testing menu could not be ordered after 7pm. That's something to bear in mind for next time.

A quiet and refined restaurant. There's a good set menu at the weekend, but expect small portions. It's a good spot for a nice lunch followed by a walk in a lovely part of London.

Amazing food and service-will definitely return soon. The lunch time menu is ridiculously good value and excellent quality. We’ve eaten in a few other restaurants in the area over the past few weeks, and Odette’s was the best by far!

My starter - soup - was fantastic.
All food was very tasty with interesting flavours.
Vegetarian rissotto Main course was good, not large, no veg though, so asked for some, which came very quickly, but was oily, although nicely crisp. Could have done with colour eg steamed carrots / red cabbage, as it looked dull.
Desserts quite good.
Price crept up, we were on a £35 budget, but it came to over £50 per head.
Water bottles were refillable @ £4.25

Sunday lunch at Odette’s on a lovely warm day. Primrose Hill was very busy but Odette’s is a haven of calm in the middle of it all. The Sunday roast was perfect and was rounded off with an apricot soufflé which was light as a feather. Fantastic!

A very, very special place. It feels very small and cosy although there are different rooms giving more space than appears at first.

The food is beautiful. The service discreet and friendly. It's just a wonderful restaurant and has become our special occasion place.

The tasting menu (with wine pairing in my case) was excellent. The variety and combinations of food were excellent and the portion size were just right so as not to make one feel like a glutton. It was the same story with the wine pairing: a small glass with each course that really complimented the food well.
