As always the food and service was excellent. It has a limited menu but everything is always perfectly cooked.

Aster was absolutely perfect for our pre theatre dinner. Great service and amazing food. Really good value for money on the set course menu.

Horribly noisy and uncomfortable. The pot au feu was disgusting and inedible. The other dishes were "interesting" but I can't really say I enjoyed them. Too much salt was a theme. Not my kind of place. I will not be going back.

Such a lovely spot for brunch and great food with a twist! We had to prompt for drinks top ups towards the end of our meal which felt a little embarrassing but overall a great day

Starters & Mains all delicious as well as being interesting (a rare combo!). Desserts were more average - very photogenic but a bit too sweet & same-y for our taste. Great wine list, although French wines rather overpriced.

Very angry about their pricing policy which is designed to deceive. The menu says (by example) £8 for a particular glass of wine, but when the bill comes, 12.5% “discretionary” service charge has been added and the wine actually cost £9. It’s a con, and it’s wrong. Pay your staff, include their cost in the base price, make it clear what you are charging so as not to deceive or at best confuse, and let the customer decide whether to tip or not. If you want to give the opportunity to add 12.5% and it is truly discretionary - ask before taking the money. Rip off.
