I absolutely love this place. It is without question my favourite wine bar in London. The staff are always so helpful (and patient) with wine selection and I have honestly never tasted a bad wine there. I now just go with their suggestion. The food is delicious and they often change their menu to keep with seasonality of produce. Cannot recommend highly enough.
First time . Good all round . Left to chat and get on with it with no over attentive or pushy staff . Food service could have been faster but it's all cooked to order so no probs . Smarten up toilets a bit and it would have been beyond reproach ! Well go again- a great venue for family/friends parties
Very small portions though
Made it less good value
High quality of food but main reason to go is for the wine list and Sommelier. Both are outstanding. Many stunning wines are available the glass or carafe.
If I had to pack one negative thing it would be that the portions are relatively small but that is more than made up for by the sheer quality and freshness of the dishes.
To be honest it wasn't a negative in the sense that as I had lunch there I didn't require large portions.
Very unhurried. Lovely atmosphere. Friendly staff
Great night, wine list is well thought through, great advice received and the food was both original and very good. Great value and excellent place for get together !
My new favourite Marylebone haunt, couldn't fault a thing. Food and service were both impeccable. It was a quiet bank holiday lunchtime, so pretty quiet, which suited us, though I can see it being a great buzzy place in the evenings. LOVED it.
Good but expected better. Most disappointing was the pasta dish which looked good but hardly contained any shellfish. Staff were great and we had a nice table. I’m sure the restaurant can do better so we will go again to see!
This was our third visit and we now recommend it to all our London friends and visitors. The food, as always was excellent. The Octopus and the crab pasta are both must try dishes. Our server and Sommelier were both wonderful and the wine suggestions where amazing. A really special meal and we will be back!
Excellent service great value set lunch
Great sweet spot to catch up with a friend or go on a date. Delicious food and cozy atmosphere.
Very nice evening . Lovely booth seat for 4 and friendly non pushy relaxed staff . Excellent short menu indicating fresh produce which seemed to be the case . All very happy with all food choices and wine . Pleasantly surprised by pricing and final bill for West End -all very good value Last to leave and would give it 9 out of 10 if option a available
Consistently good quality food.
A wonderful small spot with a small but excellent menu (try the raw prawns) and a very interesting, ever-changing wine list (try the 2014 Gigndas). A favourite whenever we are in London.
Great food. Sat outside and traffic light enough to enjoy the experience
Had a very good experience here. We sat outside in front of the restaurant as the AC wasn’t working indoors. Food was delicious; menu is short but a good choice of dishes. Service professional and unobtrusive. When it got a little cold outside we were offered blankets. Would happily come here again.
The ideal place for a catch up with a good friend or a date. Very friendly staff, a menu that changes frequently for the freshest food and lovely bistro ambience. We go there nearly weekly and enjoy it
Interesting and tasty food. Lengthy wine list and a very knowledgeable sommelier. A great place for lunch with a friend
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.
Excellent menu, food good value for money. Wine list very comprehensive and staff happy to help pair with food. Will return again in the future
Delicious fresh food, good wines and lovely service
Fantastic food - thoughtful great service. We've been twice and already planning next visit.
Our second time back and can't say enough good things. Service was professional and warm, particularly the sommelier who chose some great options for us. Food was outstanding. We will be back!
Un choix de plats audacieux et varié mis en valeur par une sélection de vins judicieux. L’accueil et le service sont au top. Une adresse à découvrir pour y revenir. À recommander. Un réel moment de plaisir. Merci
Very enjoyable evening. Buzzy atmosphere, efficient and friendly service. Tasty food, particularly the starter of asparagus, poached egg and parmesan
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.
Great service, happy to amend some dishes to suit us which is a rarity these days and booked us a great table. Service just the right level of informality v formality, attentiveness v there too much! Food great. Recommended.
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.
Food was delicious, staff was fantastic, highly recommend!
I feel at home here.
Food lacking seasoning. Service was dismissive and amateurish. Overpriced for the quality of food.
Good to find an excellent and high quality restaurant in a relatively crowded field in Marylebone - wish I had been earlier !
Xavier has a great restaurant. Good location , excellent food and wine combined with attentive and fun staff.
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.
Third Sunday lunch at Compton’s Blandford. All really excellent and much enjoyed. We will definitely return
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.
