The food was incredibly fresh and flavours very well put together. The wine list was huge and the staff had a very deep knowledge. I’d recommend this place. Really great.

Great little Mediterranean bistro with an enormous wine list. Wine can be pricey but the food is very good value and this place is now on my "favourites" list. Staff are super friendly and the service is very good.

We have just eaten here for the first time and found it excellent. That food was beautifully cooked and presented and the menu imaginative. The tagliolini was particularly good. The wine was well above average under the care of a knowledgeable and helpful sommelier. Service was also notable, our waiter was friendly and fun, adding to the enjoyment of our meal. And dont overlook the cheese, straight from la fromagerie round the vorner
Our only criticism which maybe cost the fifth star was that portion size could have been a little larger. We are not big eaters but I did feel a little more would have been welcome! But don't be put off, this is a restaurant well worth a visit, we shall return.

Set lunch that I had was very good value (2 courses with a glass of wine). The friend I was dining with wasn't keen on either of the 2 starters so did pay a lot more just for a main course and a carafe of wine.

Lovely decor, nice ambience, the perfect place to have a good chat with friends in a lively but civilised environment. Welcoming and warm service. Our waitress noticed we hadn't finished the starter and asked if there was a problem with it. We mentioned it was a bit salty therefore not suitable for us. At the end of the meal we found she'd taken this dish off the bill because she'd informed the chef who tried the food and agreed it was over salted. This is a great example of professional, unobtrusive service that pays attention to detail and is respectful; impressive. Will certainly return and recommend to friends.

Needs redecorating !
Orange fabric chairs are so dirty and smothered with food stains.
Paint work tatty.
Toilets not sparkly.

Love this place but needs refreshing urgently.

This was one of the most enjoyable restaurant experiences this year. The mains were delicicious - we had tagliolini with crab and chili and roasted quail and tiny mushrooms. Starters and desserts equally tasty - asparagus with jamon iberico and lemon tart with yoghurt ice cream. The service was friendly, with just the right interval between each course, plus a good bottle of Cotes du Rhone Lirac. Good evening, very good dinner.

You don't get to choose whether you sit at the bar or a table. Food is perfectly fine, but focus is more on a local brasserie experience for catching up with friends over food and a bottle of wine.

Four of us enjoyed an excellent meal at this restaurant after an early evening concert.
The choice of dishes was different from the norm and each of the four main courses selected was very good.
Value for money was good and the staff were friendly and efficient.

Just off Maryleborne High Street, fun little French-influenced eatery has neighborhood feel, with a no fuss approach to Bistrot/Brasserie standards. Open latish, especially for this quiet part of town. More a place to take friends vs a business party. Not bad for singletons either, given it has a 10-12 seat marble counter

I can't fault this place. Beautiful truffle carpaccio. Amazing mackerel. And wonderfully light ravioli. Wine list is strong. With a focus on tasty rhone wines. And cheap. £50 a head with good wine for three people. Will be back as soon as possible.

Our second visit back and it was Superb! We were in London a week and dined at some of best but hands down Blandford Comptoir topped the list. The cocktail and wine selection paired with the perfect sized portions of delicious food will satisfy your palate and have you wanting to book your next visit. The staff were a delight! Professional yet fun and attentive. We felt special and can't wait to return.

Had a lovely lunch at this restaurant yesterday. The courgette appetiser and the seasonal salad were both great, but the onion soup was very small and disappointing. The mains made up for that: my mother loved her onglet and I had a very tasty mushroom ravioli as my main. At 50 pounds for two including a glass of wine, we thought it was a great deal! Would certainly return and recommend to friends!

blandford comptoir has always been one of my favourite place in Marylebone- cozy atmosphere and seasonal menu- the pork belly tortellini was beautiful and flavoursome, the mackerel tartare was perfect! A fantastic wine list which made it very hard to choose from as I want to taste everything. Thank you for another wonderful evening.

We had the set menu given for Valentine’s day. We shared the dishes and enjoyed the food; the highlight being the monkfish. We were sitting at the bar which was more spacious than expected, however, we were placed close to the staircase leading to the toilets which wasn’t very comfortable. All in all great experience, I would go back but request another spot.
