Crowned Tatler’s Restaurant of the Year, 2018, 108 Garage is both critically acclaimed and universally loved. The restaurant has fast become a gastronomic destination for fresh, local produce and innovative cooking; appealing to those who live nearby and a pilgrimage of sorts for those travelling for a dining experience.

Located on London’s bustling Golborne Road, a short walk from Westbourne Park or Ladbroke Grove tube stations 108 Garage is moments away from the eccentric and creative buzz of Notting Hill and Portobello Road.

The cooking is intelligent with seasonal ingredients the foundation of every dish. Executive Chef, Chris Denney and his team source exceptional ingredients from the UK and Europe to curate an ever-changing menu. The space, formerly a garage, has a raw industrial feel which enhances the electric energy from the kitchen and provides a contrasting backdrop to the impeccable cuisine.

I was very impressed. I had read a few dodgy reviews, mainly around service but they were very attentive. I thought the food was very creative and for the most part delicious! Of the 10 or so different things I tasted, I would say only 2 would receive any criticism from me. I am not normally one to write reviews but wanted to write this one as I thought it was an excellent dining experience.

Delicious food but at 10pm the music and lights were turned up and the kitchen was cleared around us - rubbish bags being taken past our table to the bins outside. Unreasonably poor service for a meal costing £500 for 4 people. 10pm!!

The food which at night was only the taster menu was great. A lovely mix of food and a choice of main and dessert so able to have fish rather than meat. The service though was patchy at first it was ultra fast and then became really slow so the meal took three hours which on a weekday night is not ideal.

We had a table for 6 in our first experience of the restaurant. The setting was fun - it did indeed invoke the spirit of a garage; however, one or two things need improving - particularly the heating arrangements. Service was attentive and friendly but a little rough round the edges - witnessed by a spilled glass of wine (for which recompense was made). What might have been just a pleasant experience was elevated by the exquisite food; a tasting menu of 6 courses plus a few unannounced amuse bouches; each course sublime in its own way - innovative and absolutely delicious. A wonderful experience that I hope to enjoy again soon.

This is now number one in Hardens for create cuisine which says it all, so booking ahead is now essential. We first went soon after opening our lunch and quite a few times since.. It is always busy but I think even more so now (last visit in January). As before the food is intriguing and complex with unusual ingredients and flavour parings. Our Swiss friends were absolutely delighted, the husband having been on our first visit - and, as before, in the evening, it helps to have a torch on your smart phone!
The service was charming, but I though a bit under pressure, and there was a long wait between the palate cleanser and the dessert.
What was a relatively mid priced dining experience has become rather more expensive.

Don't go! My husband and I found 108 Garage listed on a few recommended restaurant lists and were excited to try it on our recent trip to London. We are big foodies who love trying new restaurants, especially when we travel. The food ranged from fair to bad but the real issues was the service. The kitchen had no sense of pacing. It was a 6 course tasting menu. Once the plates from each course were cleared we had to wait 25-30 minutes for the next course to arrive (I pulled out my phone and started timing it after the first course took forever to arrive). We were not the only ones - the whole restaurant was full of annoyed looking Brits asking the few servers what was taking so long. Not sure if this is always the case, but this is completely unacceptable. We asked for the check after the first 4 courses - 2 hours into a rather unappealing meal of raw peas, asparagus, roasted potatoes, and some of the worst fish I have ever had. I would also add that even for a tasting menu the dishes were quite small. I would have still been hungry even if I had lasted the 3+ hours it would have taken to get all the way through dinner. (I have had a number of wonderful, lengthy tasting menus in my life. Yes, sometimes you relish every bite of a 4 hour dinner. This is not that kind of place. It's not intended to be that long. The kitchen just completely lost control of itself.) Lastly, after expressing our frustration to the staff, were received an apology, but no offer to comp part of our bill. If the food was good I could chalk it up to a bad night, but that was not the case. There are so many wonderful restaurants in London - pick one of them and don't go here.

The food was interesting, but for some of the courses the flavour combinations were slightly not right in my opinion (I appreciate flavours are a very subjective thing). Our experience at 108 Garage was by no means a bad dining experience at all, the food was good, but for the price I would hope for incredible food. But to end on a positive, the highlight of our 6 courses was the dessert, the rum soaked pineapple cheesecake. This dish was so interesting and the flavours were just spot on.

Receptionist gave us an unkind welcome. No smile and seemed bored and had an attitude.
Food was ok but def nothing to rave about. Waiter was nice though. Unfortunately quantity wise a big disappointment. Left hungry.
An experience which will not make me go back. Once was enough.

Great food; interesting and delicious (the two don't always go together,
Service was excellent too.
But seating uncomfortable. Chairs too low. This is so easy to get right and will certainly put older generation from coming; maybe that's the idea?
Pity because this place is different and worth the £45 tasting menu.

I'm a vegetarian and came here on a recommendation from a friend. I was a bit wary as the menu isn't posted anywhere - but to my delight they had a separate vegetarian pre-fix menu, and the food was really incredible! Just let them know if you are vegetarian so they hand you the right menu, and make sure they give you the right dip with your bread starter :)

Very cold experience. Heaters nog working, guests kept their winter coats on. Staff pretended ignorance, the big elephant in the room. Food was innovative but too complicated: the constituent ingredients got lost in the end product. Artichoke in your dessert: looks promising but the taste and form weren’t identifiable anymore.

Wonderful evening. Great and inventive food served by a team, rightfully proud of their creations. Lots of interesting flavours and combinations. Main negative was that, on a chilly evening, it was bloody freezing in there - a pincer movement of the front door, and an even more regularly opened back door, left us all sandwiches between the two. The number of people wearing their heavy overcoats for dinner suggested that it want just us.

Great food, very creative and innovative !

Our waiter was really nice and caring! We really enjoyed that!

The problem is that it is not written on the website or on any other place that there is only one menu of 6 courses at £55. I think it would have preferable to clarify this point ahead of the reservation to avoid bad surprise or any discomfort.
