I took a friend I did not see for years to this restaurant and we were both very disappointed. Her meal did not look appetising, more like a tiny rubbery fish sole, which she kindly asked to be taken off the bill, as well as service charge to be waived. At the end, she found a black hair (couldn’t have been hers as she’s blonde) in her meal which spoiled everything. I’ve never had such an embarrassing experience in my life at a restaurant. Also, I had high expectations but was bitterly disappointed. My quail was tasty but cold. Jersey potatoes were cold. My cocktail was ok and garnish was slightly awkward. Unfortunately I won’t be returning.

We made friends with the charming and knowledgeable sommelier: the temperature at which he served the Billecart-Salmon (poured from magnum) demonstrated his excellence. He is Spanish and shared our admiration for the wines of Màquina y Tabla - so we had a great time, and this is clearly a place to visit if you’re interested in wine.

Lovely food, perfect for a warm summer’s evening: slices of marinated raw tuna followed by perfectly cooked turbot, both of which, despite the weather, left room for pudding.

The service was excellent. I really cannot complain at all. We were there for hours (birthday). Our food was delicious and the wine list really good as well.
The portions are a bit on the small side, and also not cheap, however all the food we had was amazing.
We love this place and go back and back even if just for a drink.

We visited once again this restaurant and we really enjoyed their service and food. We had beef carpaccio , buratta for starters and then grilled hake and foi gras for mains. All very well cooked and served. Staff very attentive and friendly.

We have been here a couple of times, food is great, presentation superb and wine list is great. The vibe is casual and comfortable, a place you want to hang out. Will definitely return since it is a great place to eat alone, on a date or in groups of 4 or 6. Try the oysters-- they are great as is the pork belly.

Our first visit, and everyone enjoyed their lunch. We all had different dishes, so a good overview. Staff friendly and helpful in decision-making. If in the Marylebone area, it is well worth a visit.

Excellent food and fantastic wine list with some really interesting bottles, many at very reasonable prices for the quality and provenance. Not a quick meal and not cheap, but well worth it.

I was met with discouraging service at the start which then persisted throughout the evening. This was my second time visiting Blandford Comptoir and will not be my last. Besides that food was good.

I keep coming back for the service, wine and food - in that order. It is my Marylebone everyday gem so to speak. Easy, informal yet brilliant and creative. Great wine list too.

After having previously dined at, and really enjoyed, Blandford Comptoir dinner last night was very disappointing.

Other than a foie gras pate which was excellent, our food was completely bland and badly cooked. When my friend told our waiter that we weren't really enjoying the food (after he asked) he did offer to not charge us for our glasses of wine which was a nice gesture, but also basically told her that she didn't know what she was talking about! (For what it's worth, chatting to the table next to us they agreed with our option.)

It's a pity because for a local restaurant it has a lovely atmosphere and perhaps it was just a bad day in the kitchen but I won't be going back.

My experiences at Blandford Comptoir have always been great, but this Saturday was extra special. It was to be my first evening out after giving birth and extenuating circumstances meant we had no babysitter and had to bring the baby out. I was super stressed, and the staff made everything perfect. they found spot for my pram, made sure I felt comfortable, and made me laugh. Then the food and wine were perfect, as always. Thank you so much for the wonderful evening!!

I have a number of food intolerances and although I was told on arrival this had been noted there was little real understanding.
The waiter was pretty arrogant and told me I should go a la Carre rather than the offer we had booked.
We came up with a solution ourselves by sharing the mixed starters. We were incorrectly advised about dairy in the main course and then when I asked for just sorbet as a dessert I was brought yoghurt sorbet. When I queried if it was actually dairy free the way sneered but went to check eventually returning with an alternative .
I doubt I'll be returning to Comptoir!
The previous week I had eaten at Boisdale with an Opentable offer and they couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating

The view of our group of 8 was that the deserts were very good but other than the oysters and the lamb, the rest of the food was well presented but taste wise was average at best.
We left slightly disappointed.

Can’t praise staff and venue highly enough...really fantastic relaxed and romantic vibe the second you walk in the door...the pictures don’t do the place justice as it’s much cosier and intimate lighting than the website suggests.
