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.

              The restaurant is great and the service excellent. However, a minimum price per head for lunch approaching £200 is just ridiculous and the food does not justify that. The choice is also really limited. The likes of Le Gavroche are a positive bargain by comparison.

              Our meal last night was every bit a three star Michelin experience. The room beautiful, the service impeccable, the food was devine, and the wines were excellent. Bibendum has two well deserved stars now, but watch out for a third.

              Classic menu - food was extremely rich but what we expected. Next time we will order seasonal of course. This was our anniversary meal. Service was IMPECCABLE, and, part of what made the experience!

              If I could possibly rate the restaurant higher than 5 stars then I would. What a wonderful experience - from beginning to end - the attention to we received from entering, through dining, to leaving was beyond exceptional. The food - every single dish was an incredible delight of flavors, so creative and unusual, something so above a "wonderful" dining experience. The creativity, the presentation - I cannot think of enough words to express our satisfaction with every detail. I simply recommend Bibendum as one of the most pleasurable dining experiences you'll ever have the opportunity to enjoy. Thank you Claude Bosi and your fabulous, attentive staff.

              Service staff were very warm & attentive. Found the food quite unique but not a fan of warm main course alongside cold side dishes. Also slightly burnt madeleines shouldn’t happen at this level.

              Food is too salty. The flavour of the food is not balanced. The taste of the season menu is much lower than my expectation. However, the service and environment is exceptional.

              We had a fabulous time. The food, the staff, the ambience were all exceptional. I don’t wish to sound arrogant but I have dined at many Michelin 3 star establishments & in my view there is no question Bibendum should be awarded 3 stars. It was great to see Claude at the pass - which can be rare these days ! The waiters were all engaging and understood the dishes. The sommelier was passionate & knowledgeable & the food was amazing - the quality of the produce, the flavours & the finesse with which the dishes were created made the experience one of the best I have had. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the restaurant to anyone & hopefully it won’t be too long before we’re back there again

              Amazing service! Really the best service we experienced in a while in London. A lovely atmosphere for a special occasion. The food was really nice and wine pairing made us discover some gems!

              Absolutely amazing experience, indulgence perfected. Nice to see the Chef talking to the customers and the staff were unbelievably attentive. If I had one criticism it would be the price of the wine pairing with the tasting menu, I came for the food not the wine hence don't believe it should cost more than the food. Maybe consider a more reasonable pricing structure for the wine pairing? The sommelier was very good and suggested an exceptional alternative.

              We had an amazing lunch - the food was exquisite, the presentation lovely and the service superb. We had our young baby with us and the restaurant was extremely welcoming and accommodating.

              We ordered a bottle of champagne. We found the champagne a bit flat with very little bubbles. We told the waiter twice. The waiter also admitted the fact and said would inform the manager. But the manager never came to our table and the waiter never followed up on our status though he continued to pour the champagne for us. We didn’t ask to return the champagne but at least somebody attended to a situation raised by customers. It is very disappointing with a two star restaurant.
