Laurent at Café Royal is the new Grill and Sushi Bar located within the modern grand Hotel Café Royal on London's Regent Street by Executive Chef Laurent Tourondel of New York fame.

Laurent features an array of newly designed areas including booths and views of either elegant Regent Street or the grand hotel lobby with a spectacular Murano glass chandelier at the centre.
International influences are evident across the menu where the finest cuts of steak, fish and seafood are prepared on the open grill; whilst sushi masters prepare inventive sushi, sashimi and raw fish at the sushi bar.
The bar offers a wide selection of wines from both new and classic regions with a focus on the French 'regal regions', alongside cocktails and fine spirits.

Wow, what a fantastic restaurant this was. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with dark colours that gives it a bit of sophistication. Whilst the dishes are not cheap, they all looked stunning and the taste of was amazing. We will definitely be going back and cant recommend this restaurant enough. 5 stars.

The tables were too close to each other and didn't feel comfortable having a private conversation with my husband.

Had a glass that smelt with an old cloth and had to ask twice to change it.

The food was good, but some dishes definitely overpriced (£14 for just a bowl of green lettuce as a side dish/starter)

Amazing special Birthday Dinner with my husband! Everything about this place is luxurious and relaxing. The lights are appropriately dimmed, music is soft, staff are really attentive but not overbearing, food is beautifully presented and tastes really good. Dinner for two with a bottle of wine was about £300.

Excellent birthday lunch. Had set menu, which was good value for money and loved every course. Also enjoyed the Popover bread. The service from the moment we entered the restaurant was very efficient and friendly. Thought the wine was somewhat overpriced, but apart from that, great dining experience and will definitely be back.

I wouldn't recommend it .. because I don't want anyone else to know about it!!!! SOOOOO good and such fantastic value, and the great thing is you can walk in most days and get a table, or only book a week or so in advance.

The staff were decent, but the food was an incredible let down especially the steaks. They were apologetic and recooked new steaks but 1 was still under-done. Lacking in atmosphere also.

I do not think I got good value for money. The desert was delicious (we ordered the souffle for two) but the main course (the prawns) was nothing out of the ordinary. We ordered wine by the glass which was quite small to start with but when they put enough wine in them for only three sips I felt cheated. The decor, however, was the most disappointing aspect of the experience for me; there was nothing that would elevate it to the wow factor, to the 5 star appeal...I only chose this restaurant because my friend, whom I was treating, had fond memories of it and wanted to come here. Overall, it was not a bad experience but it was not something that would compel me to return or recommend it to a friend.

I booked Laurent at Cafe Royal for a business meal on the basis of good internet reviews, not really expecting a hotel off Regent Street to be especially great... How wrong I was! On entering the Cafe Royal, I was are immediately impressed by the high-class surroundings and friendly staff. We were directed to our table and attended to by very competent waiting staff. The Laurent restaurant surroundings are beautiful and the size of the restaurant provides an intimate environment (well suited for personal as well as business use). Our meal of mixed sushi to start and steaks for mains was excellent in terms of presentation and taste. We were recommended a red wine with our main which was delicious and suited the meat well. It is somewhere I intend to go back to as soon as I can. An excellent find, right on the beaten track!

Can’t believe this restaurant got 5 stars ! Great if you want to sit in a corridor, hearing every word the people are saying next to you and having the toilet cleaning crew walking past your table twice in 2 hours. Sushi was good, steak average and soggy middle onion rings. Service was ok. Think it was also overpriced even for London .

Wonderful experience of fine dinning in exquisite Art Deco surroundings.
Great unobtrusive service.
The food is contemporary & innovative. A choice for most palates.
We found the wine rather costly though & the one we chose a little indifferent.
That apart, the whole visit was delightful. Seeing Ziggy’s bar was an added extra
for a David Bowie fan . A real treat.

We had such a lovely evening. Our waitress was brilliant and was great at getting the food out to us quickly when we told her we were going on to the theatre. The three course early evening menu was excellent value and the food was delicious. Loved the decor and ambiance in the restaurant and we'll definitely come back.

had to google "onglet steak". tough cut so I ordered medium. my friend ordered medium rare. too tough so sent it back to be re-cooked.
both starters were excellent. I found it difficult to understand the person waiting on because of her accent.
we had two course set menu. I suspect the a la carte menu would have served up better fare. we had a drink in Ziggy's bar before our meal. very nice.
