Beautiful restaurant with very creative food. Great balance and combination of flavours. Yes the servings are small but I didn’t see it as a negative because it was like having your pick of a dégustation meal. Appreciated the friendly and attentive service, too, as it made for a welcoming and comfortable dining experience. The only downside to me was they charge for the bread service.
2 of us went for dinner at Gazelle on a Wednesday night.
We had booked a table at the bar (promoted as a destination bar on their website) but when we arrived, we were told the bar was closed because it was a very quiet evening (it was indeed - just 6 covers that night).
We sat at the bar of the restaurant instead. Cocktails ( we both went for their signature champagne cocktails) are good but sadly, the lack of ambiance at that bar slightly ruined the experience.
We then moved to the dining room and were explained the menu.
We ordered 7 dishes in total, all to share. The vegetarian ones were a real let down but the fish and the meat were, on the other hand, superb.
We shared one dessert which we both found way too sweet.
Very limited wine selection by the glass and quite pricey.
Overall, for more than 125 pounds per person, I think you have plenty of better options in London.
Special final (positive) note: both waiters that night were absolutely adorable and professional.
Excellent food and brilliant service, just rather quiet. I hope that was a"Friday night in Mayfair" one - off as this restaurant provides a truly special experience.
Food - prices seem reasonable until you discover it's a tapas concept. The food was definitely good but not worth those prices. For that money you would expect... more, and better. The dishes are fairly experimental, everything had a unique twist to it and tasted good.
Drinks - on a Friday night were the only people in the entire bar, and we were there 2 hours! Now I know why. The bar was perfectly nice, but the drinks were just overpriced. I'm used to expensive London cocktails but when a negroni turns up in a glass the size of an egg-cup rather than a standard tumbler, you can't help but feel you're being robbed. The wine we had was great but at £80 a bottle you shouldn't expect anything less.
Service - this was the only excellent aspect of the place, both the waiter in the bar and the team in the restaurant were friendly, super helpful and knowledgeable of the food and drinks on offer.
Venue - attractive dark bar with comfortable lounge seats, restaurant is brighter with not many tables - very intimate.
I'd definitely come again if the prices were just that bit more reasonable, especially for the bar - would be a great after-work place for a laid-back cocktail. But at these prices it can't be justified, there are so many other fantastic bars in the neighbourhood that don't quite charge that much.
A terrific experience, I would suggest that it's best for a group booking. We were a group of six which worked very well.
What a wonderful find in Mayfair - Spectacular 4 course lunch with wine pairing for a bargain.
Food was wonderful, the beet root with yuzu
Herb salad, fish and chocolate desert...
Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable about food and wine.
Can’t say enough good things about this gem
I absolutely love it!
I had a great dinner at Gazelle! Friendly staff, creative and delicious cuisine and a fabulous wine suggestion from the sommelier.
The selection of dishes we chose were outstanding in the skill of the cooking, the quality of the ingredients, the flavours in the dishes and the inventiveness.
Unfortunately it was very quiet - please do give it a try - you won't be disappointed.
Having heard from a friend about the latest dining spot in Mayfair went there for working lunch.
Opted for set lunch deal of £30 which turned out to be fast executed 4 courses. Top quality ingredients, well executed innovative dishes, friendly and informative service. Would very highly recommend to anyone looking for business lunch or looking for value for money in Mayfair (not many around).
Looking forward to checking their dinner offering.
An interesting journey through the menu raising to a crescendo and jewel in the crown for me the matcha and white chocolate desert. Lots of Vegetarian options, some of which may read a one dimensional but are anything but that - enoki mushroom in broth!
Service and atmosphere both very pleasant but could maybe do we a tweak. I am sure that will come with time.
