Charlotte’s Bistro is an independently owned informal neighbourhood bar & restaurant. More daughter than sister to the longstanding Charlotte’s Place restaurant on Ealing Common, we first opened in 2010 on a mission to offer inventive drinks as well as the award winning food we were already famous for.

We take great pride in sourcing high quality local produce and handle it with great care. From bread, stocks and ice creams in the kitchen, to purées, cordials and infusions on the bar, naturally we make them all.

Working with only seasonal ingredients, about a third of our menu changes every month. The cocktail bar works exclusively with fresh, seasonal ingredients and high quality artisan products.

Awarded Good Food Guide London Restaurant of the Year 2015 and Best Loved Local by Time Out Love London Awards 2015 and 2016!

- Delicious food and wine, seasonal ingredients, everything cooked/prepared perfectly, v good selection.
- Perfect service, friendly, honest, not overly attentive or too slow.
- Good ambience, but slightly too loud in the conservatory for my liking.

I recommend Charlottes Bistro to all my friends, family and colleagues. It is by far my favourite place in Chiswick. Tom, the Head Bartender, has great knowledge in drinks and all I need to do is give him a few flavour notes or tell him what kind of mood I'm in and he will come up with delicious drinks every single time.
Food is always on point with fantastic flavours and fresh ingredients and it is one of the best roasts I have had in Chiswick.
I am yet to find something to fault them for. Amazing food, drinks, service, atmosphere and dining deals.

Organised a birthday dinner for my mother. Upon arrival we were pleased to see the restaurant had a great atmosphere.
The service was a bit sloppy - (brought still water despite asking for sparkling, wine spilled whilst pouring, wrong dishes given to wrong person and no mention of my mother's birthday despite e-mailing ahead) but we were served quickly and it didn't effect the evening significantly.
The food was delicious and good value for money. I felt that the Sea Bass portion size was smaller than my last visit which was a little disappointing but it remains good value and was delicious.
I'd certainly come again and recommend, but I'd hope for better service next time.

1. It was a hot day - NEVER eat here on a hot day, the restaurant has a giant roof window and the staff refuse to let you sit in the non greenhouse area, and don't use the air-con. On a hot or even sunny day this place is not comfortable. The fact that the staff realize it is too hot yet don't do anything to fix it i.e. different seating or air-con is what really annoys me .

2. The main dishes are completely disproportionate to each other. If you get the guinea fowl you have a plate filled to the brim with lentils which you can't finish. If you get the grilled fish to get something which is basically the size of a starter. This causes your customers to be over full or still hungry. When the food isn't the cheapest I wouldn't expect this kind of thoughtless food.

3. Our favorite drink from the place is a bloody Mary, it is their signature cocktail but this time the straws with the drink seem to have been cut in half to make 2 straws?!! how cheap can you be to have to cut a straw in 2, until the point that the straw sinks below to bottom of the glass lip.

I feel that the restaurant has really lost it's high standard... I hope that it can make a comeback or it is going to eventually shut down

Great local restaurant. Friendly staff. Sometimes a little noisy if you have hearing problems or want a quiet conversation, but good ambience. Excellent wines and lovely food. I'm a particular fan of the fish. Smaller portions, but excellent as you are not stuffed and can manage a starter and dessert!

This was my wife's birthday. Normally we would have gone to Charlottes on Ealing Green, a favourite of ours, but due to the tragic fire it is yet to re-open. The Bistro was good, but lacked the ambience. The food was excellent, except the turnip with young lam was inedible because it was too al dente. But the service and chat with staff, jokes etc, excellent. Thoroughly recommend. Turnips are difficult both to grow and cook, because they can go mushy. Not knocking the chef!

busy night, very few staff to the many tables. therefore observations were not very good and staff seemed very tired and not relaxed nor not very friendly . we felt forgotten about at times and i had to ask after quite a while just for our order to be taken. not quite staffs fault due to the circumstances but could have done much better. food was nice though.

Fantastic food (although had run out of a couple of options on menu). Service was a little slow but didn’t matter to us as happy to wait. Helpful and very friendly waitresses. Table rather cramped as sat on high backed benches that couldn’t be moved and were a little too close to the table (ok for skinny people!). Overall though a lovely dinner.

This Charlotte's lacks the atmosphere of the one behind Ealing Town Hall. The staff over-egged the limited duration we would be allowed to stay at the table, both at point of booking, on the menu & at time of ordering - all a bit unfriendly when we spent over )150 between two people. By the time we left the restaurant wasn't full. I wouldn't go back to Chiswick, but I would go to the Ealing one which is much nicer.

Food was simply amazing and the atmosphere superb. We had a really lovely evening and a restaurant we will definitely be returning to. The staff were also really great especially our waitress who was really lovely and very knowledgeable, even providing a special written note on my partners dessert menu to reassure her regarding her peanut allergy.

Will be back soon!

I met a friend for dinner at Charlotte's - it was the first time either of us had visited. And we couldn't have been more impressed! The menu was varied (and delicious), the wine list was extensive and the service was attentive and friendly. The 3-course set menu with welcome drink is outstanding value given the quality of the food on offer. We'll definitely be back!

Overall the food was fairly good. However, the starters were not really up to standard. The hake was smothered in lemon juice to the extent it tasted of lemon rather than hake. The duck came on toast that was rock hard so difficult to eat. The main courses were better - beautifully cooked steak and the lamb was also lovely. This restaurant isn't bad, but I would have expected more given the price.

Friendly restaurant in bustling Turnham Green Terrace . The menu was brief but offered plenty of choice. We all plumped for the lamb stew which was really tender and in a great rich sauce. The wine choice was good although ours took a while getting to the table , quickly rectified once the waitress was reminded. Desserts were very good. I had a creme brûlée with rosemary which was lovely. Nice relaxed place with good food
