Founded by two Master Sommeliers with extensive London restaurant experience, Cabotte promises an evening of exquisite French cuisine paired with a unique wine list made up of beautiful classics and interesting rarities from the Burgundy wine region.

Named after the small huts that Burgundy winegrowers have within their vineyards, the feel of the restaurant is that of a traditional local bistro in the French countryside. With traditional dishes and modern twists, the seasonal menu and daily specials will showcase the very best ingredients.

Open Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner, Cabotte also has two Private Dining Rooms available for exclusive hire for groups between 6 and 40 people. With menus available for sit-down, canape parties or walkaround tasting events, the Central location is ideal for any corporate or social occasions.

Took the boyfriend here for his birthday, shame it has taken so long to get here. The menu was well priced, and some lovely little touches that really raised the bar. But I was really here for he wine, and the list did not disappoint. Amiga did a great job as sommelier selecting a stunning little number in Robert Groffier’s gevry chambertin les seivrees 2011 - the last bottle I am afraid! We had oysters and duck eggs with asparagus as starters followed by lamb and chicken two ways, one as a delicious pie and one breast with truffles, but not too overpowering. A 5 cheese plate helped finish the wine off.

Service levels were poor both for food and wine. Often we had to ask for attention. Choosing the wine was not that smooth, and on two occasions they then didn’t have what we had chosen. However food was very good.

I dined by myself at the bar and it was a perfect experience from start to finish. Lovely, kind staff, perfect and exciting food and the wine list is clearly the major draw. The Antoine Jobard flight was moving. Thank you everyone for a perfect evening.

we went there for a business lunch. It was surprisingly quiet so conversation was easy. Waiters were attentive and quick, food was outstanding - small portions but with finesse. Prices were not cheap but given the quality actually more than acceptable.

Easily accessible by public transport and in the historic central City of London, the restaurant has a welcoming ambience and friendly, attentive service. The French-style cuisine is delicious and well-presented in a contemporary way. Staff are expert in wines of which there is a wide spectrum to chose - with modest quantities to hand if you have a meeting to attend. Strongly recommended.

This was supposed to be a birthday celebration but it never felt at all special. It was noisy and we had very little room squashed next to a large work outing. The food choice was not great. The service was OK but not particularly warm. i wouldn't recommend it .

The dinner was a Birthday celebration and notified on booking - zero recognition by Cabotte ! Very disappointing- had to attract a waiter to order an aperitif (only 2 tables at that time were occupied) on leaving we had to search for our coats - the restaurant put them there so not sure why they could not return them ? Overall food and wine very good - but could do so much better on service ....... would not rush back !!

A first visit to Cabotte left a feeling of disappointment. Some fine work in the kitchen was let down by front of house sloppiness bordering on arrogance: an unfortunate manner by the staff welcoming us; a cavalier approach once we were seated; and a lack of attention to detail, eg wine brought at the wrong times, orders needing repeating more than once, and a coffee order at the end of dinner ignored and overlooked. In addition, for a restaurant that (rightly) prides itself on its comprehensive Burgundy wine list, the sommelier was irritatingly unengaged and unforthcoming. To set up anywhere in the Square Mile these days is a brave move deserving of encouragement, but poor service in a noisy room at these prices will not be rewarded for long. The chef should be justifiably annoyed that his good work backstage is so badly let down by those at the customer-facing end of the business. PerM

Fantastic food (British oysters truly fantastic) and staff very helpful / chilled. Nothing to complain about.

Short wine list works very well, long wine list fantastic but pushes the boundaries!

We always have a sensational lunch at Cabotte. The food, wine and service are,in our opinion, the best in the city. Our lunch this time however was the finest yet. Incredible food and our guests left saying it was unforgettable. Given how competitive the market is right now this was some achievement. Thanks and well done to everyone who helped make it so special.

Nice food but not so tasty for a French restaurant. My mackerel starter was accompanied by loads of capers and my sea bass had turnips which was unusual but not very flavoursome. Restaurant was busy and had run out of some dishes but they offered alternatives. My partners crab and sea bream tartare was ok but his venison main was delicious and tender.

Lovely space, decor, lighting and ambience. Attentive service- although we sat with food in front of us waiting for the wine we ordered to be opened and delivered to the table. Food is well executed and right at the upper limit of seasoning. Another grain of salt would have tipped it over (and I LOVE salt!)
