I heard good things about this place but there won’t be any good things for me to say.
Service was good and staff tried. The food is mediocre and lacks flavor. The combinations don’t work very well together and they are trying to be a high end restaurant but they are failing. Prices are reasonable if only the food could have been better.
Although they say they are a wine bar, they don’t have a sommelier. I asked for a manager and they said that he left too!?
Won’t recommend for dinner - just for a quick drink.
The food was superb. The heavy autumn menu ticked a box for each and everyone of us (4 dining),complimented by an extensive wine selection and a knowledgable sommelier. However the noise and the terrible live singer from the associated bar put a huge dampner on the evening.
Very poor service. Lots of staff doing nothing but standing around talking to each other. Food is no more than ok, but not worth it for the very high price. Trying to be a central London high end restaurant and failing miserably.
As a vegetarian I was really disappointed in the veggi selection, there was one dish and it was pretty much just a plate of roasted vegetables. We had a drink (which was lovely) and left
Service was really good though just disappointed in the very limited menu. I asked if they could make me a pasta dish instead and was told no. We had an early booking and there was only one other couple in there so they were not busy at that time
Would I recommend cuVee to a friend? If they eat meat then yes as it's a great space, staff very polite and helpful they just need to put a bit more thought into their vegetarian selection
We had a great evening. The food, wine and general ambiance was excellent.
We had a table for 4 on Saturday night although we were a little dissapointed at not being able to have the tasting menu as we were late sitting down and hadn’t preordered they more than made up for it with the main menu the food was absolutely delicious as were the drinks.
Service was excellent and the ambience great especially the live singer at the end of the evening . Would highly recommend if you are looking for excellent food great drinks and entertainment .
On arrival the staff were very attentive and helpful, had a drink at the bar before we sat down and the service and food were excellent. Would recommend to anyone
Amazing evening celebrating my birthday. Great food - lovely atmosphere - friendly and professional staff - fun night
Superb food and service, fantastic restaurant. The whole experience was a delight.
Lovely place with good food and great staff, the only problem is the online menu is different from real menu. Will definitely visit again
Fantastic and original food with monthly menu changes to reflect the seasonal changes. Outstanding service and the chef came to check all was ok. We will be back!
We did book up and during the time of booking to coming the menu had been changed without letting us know. This was a major issue as the food was good the choice wasn’t very extensive and pretty limited. It didn’t spoil our night but was a big let down.
This was our first visit to Cuvee. Overall, it was a very nice experience. The decor, ambience are all excellent. Service was good as was the food we ordered. There was not a huge choice on the menu. The bar area was particularly nice. An extensive wine list is offered,b ut the wine is overpriced. Although we enjoyed ourselves, I cannot help feeling that they are trying a bit too hard to be upmarket and exclusive but it somehow does not quite make the cut.
I believe they are opening another cocktail bar next door which will be great.
Pleasant staff, only 2 other tables occupied, music from the bar was intrusive and we were not over-impressed with the food, the wine was good but the wine list is very expensive.
the restaurant décor was to a high standard, the food & service excellent.....it was a shame that the restaurant was extremely quiet, but apart from that it was a lovely dinning experience.
I came to dinner on Saturday with my husband and some friends, which was the first time for all of us to your restaurant. We all thought that the food and service were amazing. However during our main course a singer started to sing which was extremely loud and very distracting. I appreciate that the restaurant has a very lively bar, but the music and singing were so loud we really couldn't hear ourselves, and found it difficult to talk to one another.
It would certainly change my mind as to whether I would want to have a meal there again if he was there at the same time, I'm afraid.
Lovely menu and great service but midweek the noise from the bar predominated and as there were only two other diners there apart from ourselves, the dining ambiance could have been better. I’m sure at the weekends it is more buzzy and we certainly couldn’t fault the food or wines. I also recommend the cocktail list , with happy hour not over until 8.00pm there was plenty of time to take advantage of their lovely cocktails as an aperitif.
I really enjoyed the experience but maybe will visit again either at the weekend or with a larger party mid week.
Lovely food and very good service. We thought the wine was overpriced. Will definitely visit again.
Dinner during music night with George Michael tribute act, lot of fun and lively buzz to the restaurant which still served up good food. Beef carpaccio was excellent.
A restaurant in search of itself. Everything feels like an experiment, from the Euro/British decor to the food which is all over the place. The soup was amazing, the burrata strange in a green pea sauce, the vegetables with the tuna were amazing, but the tuna itself was mediocre. This restaurant needs to figure out what works and stick with it.
The cheese soufflé starter and chateaubriand steak main course was excellent. Good range of wines to choose from.
I would recommend to friends but only for drinks as the kitchen closes at 22.30 so no time to order desserts and wasn’t informed until we were ask for menues. Also it’s really noisy so not ideal for conversations over a dinner but more suitable for cocktails and other drinks.
A really great venue with amazing service, Don was amazing from the second we arrived.
Cocktails were excellent and the food simply amazing. Perhaps slightly expensive but more than worth it !
Nice crowd in the bar and the restaurant.
Will for sure be returning.
The food was excellent, as was the service, very friendly staff. If you are like a lively buzzy bar that isn't full of teenagers and 20 somethings, this is the place for you. We had very good live music to accompany the meal, but it wasn't too intrusive. Will definitely return soon.
First visit to @cuvee8 in Esher last week celebrating end of A-Level exams. Had one of the best meals I had for a while which says something as we do eat at many fancy places! Great atmosphere, well stocked cocktail bar with a good selection of Wines & lagers as well. The service at the table was very good, you are well looked after by the staff. Special mention to the chef who prepared our food, all cooked as requested and the lamb chops & Rib Eye were absolutely fantastic!
Fabulous find. The cocktails are amazing as was the food
