Celebrated French chef Claude Bosi launched Claude Bosi at Bibendum back in 2017, with a ground-floor seafood and oyster bar and first-floor restaurant which is ‘unashamedly fine dining’, with the chef's signature contemporary and light-hearted flair.

The a la carte menu features some of his signature classics and the chef’s Michelin-starred alma matter, with ingredients sourced predominantly from the British Isles and France. The striking upstairs dining room with its dramatic and iconic floor-to-ceiling stained glass windows has been redesigned to house a larger central open kitchen. The light and airy dining room will feature the original Conran chairs with a soft colour palate of muted blues.

    How can anyone fail to enjoy this experience, the portions may seem small for the money but by the time you’ve finished you’re quite full. The staff are top-notch and first rate, Polite and attentive but not intrusive. We were also contacted the day before find out whether anyone had any allergies. We had previously ate in the Oyster bar downstairs and found it a little noisy. The first time we ever ate at a Claude Bosi restaurant called Hibiscus. After a visit to the bathroom I came back to find my wife chatting with the man himself. He was very polite and unassuming. It was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Thank You

    An impeccable evening, as expected. The team couldn't have done more. My final bill seemed slightly off in terms of the drinks present, however it was in line with my overall expectations so I didn't challenge the team.

    Here’s the review I wrote: Five stars, an unforgettable experience. My 16-year old son and I enjoyed the seasonal tasting menu — nine flavorful courses of regionally sourced small dishes with French and international accents. We sat down at 6:30pm and, to our surprise, concluded our meal at 11:30pm with a final tour of the kitchen that the thoughtful service invited my son on. In each course we had from one to three small dishes which each had a distinct personality and which tied together thematically with the other bites. The opening dishes— Parmesan Gugelhupf, Foi Gras ice cream w a balsamic caramel (?) brûlée, French onion soup, and a tart of Mackerel cured in lime with vanilla—gives one an idea of the combination of tastes and thought that Claude Bosi puts into curating the menu. The staff had a visible passion for highest quality dining, and explained each dish and combination, and answered our occasional questions about cooking methods. We were seated so we could view through glass panels the fascinating kitchen and obviously strong leadership it takes to deliver flawless food and service. It elevated fine dining to performance art. We enjoyed the beautiful decor of the room as well, which felt comfortable and modern as well as gorgeously imbued with the Michelin legacy of a love of experiencing the good things in life.

    Wonderful experience for my family who arrived from Malaysia. My granddaughter (5) was very shy to start with but enjoyed the attention given by the crews. I was very happy the restaurant is a child friendly as we could not leave the little girl out of the wonderful experience. TQ all for being nice to us. Will definitely come again soon.

    When you dine at a world renowned restaurant with two Michelin stars you really have high expectations on not just the food but everything else that comes with it. We found it shocking that the staffs of the restaurant kept coughing without their masks on the entire evening, despite being courteous and friendly. COVID is not over yet and it’s actually rising again. For a restaurant with such reputation, it is disappointing to see the staffs and the manager did not do anything about the coughing situation. I am not being picky here - there were 2-3 staffs coughing non stop. I think it’s more sensible if they could advise staffs to keep having face coverings on should they feel unwell.

    A lovely setting and both friendly and immaculate service but we made a mistake in succumbing to the not so subtle marketing for the seasonal taster menu for £175 rather than a more conventional three course dinner for £145. For the latter one is told specially to ask for the menu, whilst the taster menus (2 alternatives) are more or less assumed. The taster menu itself had many exotic and varied tastes, often in unusual combinations, which was sometimes interested and in a few cases exceptionally delicious. But overall too many dishes were in a similar format - ie. in a foamy creamy format and it was a bit much. Also it was poor that two of the dishes contained fois gras with no warning on the menu or when ordering it. It may have been in small quantities but many of us have moral qualms about it and, in my case, I know from experience that it’s too rich for my stomach. Yes, we were asked about dietary requirements but it’s not something one usually feels it’s necessary to mention. It really should be highlighted on the menu. The net result was a tummy ache three hours later - whether from the whole thing or that ingredient on its own I cannot tell. More positively some of the taster courses were excellent - the hake, a stuffed mushroom dish and the desert. The wine, whilst high quality even at the lower price end, was astoundingly expensive. It was certainly an interesting and memorable experience but perhaps the lesson for me is: in places like this don’t go for taster menus, go for specific dishes.

From the amazing building to the superb food and staff it was one of the best dining experiences both by wife and I have had. The Duck Jelly dish and The halibut were outstanding. A truly memorable day and we will certainly be back.

    Food was amazing and the dining room is lovely to eat in. There is a lot of light and little touches of the Bibendum around. The wine flight was really interesting and the sommelier was keen to educate and chat about the wines with us. The food was absolutely delicious and presented beautifully. We had a lovely meal and loved the music in the background. At the end we had the chance to meet the head chef which was exciting.

    Every dish was originally and imaginatively conceived, conveying delicate abs subtle flavours and attractive textures. Chef Bosi clearly delights in creative combinations of exquisite ingredients. Conversation is delightfully brief during consumption but flows freely between courses. We’ll be back ver soon.

    This type of heavy old fashioned French cooking is not in vogue now. Raw scallop in a cheese milky sauce just does not work it had absolutely no acidity or taste. The way this particular scallop dish was served spoilt what should be a cool refreshing dish as is served at Pollen Street Social.
