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.

I was disappointed in this restaurant, but it was for a very specific reason. We ordered a bottle of wine and they couldn’t find it because the somm was out sick. Ok, but they had served the bread and the appetizer before they bothered to tell us. The waiter apologized and suggeasted a different wine. When he brought it (red wine) it was actually warm, so we had to ask that it be put on ice for a while. Just not a good experience and no real acknowledgement of the issue. The food was pretty good but not exceptional. The atmosphere was cool and it’s worth a visit.

Met up with visitors from Australia at Laurent at the Cafe Royal for lunch on Sunday. Although I looked at the website and reviews, I felt that this restaurant was more beautiful than the photos give it credit for. Someone remarked on the quirky seating arrangements, however we had a fab table that seats 10 but for only five of us and it was perfect.

The menu is very diverse and suited all of us especially the vegetarian! Food was excellent quality.

I am holding back one star because, although the service was pleasant enough, I felt they weren’t attentive and they would have sold an extra bottle of wine if they had been a bit more on the ball! When we were trying to get attention to pay the bill, almost all the staff were out the back on their devices. I know it was a Sunday ... but guys... stick with your customers and make them feel special.

Lunch for five with a bottle of Champagne and a bottle of red came to £400.

Wow, I was slightly sceptical when I saw a hotel restaurant in the top 50 in London, however Laurent at Cafe Royal definitely deserves it’s high scores.

The setting is fantastic on the balcony above the reception hall of the hotel, just off Regent Street.

We started with a complimentary glass of champagne (booked through OpenTable), they have a wide selection of wines available in 500ml carafe’s which is handy if you don’t quite want to go for two bottles! We started with the NZ Cloudy Bay to accompany Gin Cured Salmon Sushi, Lobster Sushi and the Ahi Tuna Sashimi all were truly excellent with all the individual flavours coming through.

For mains we went for Sea Bass and an Aberdeen Angus Ribeye (Med rare), I have to say the steak we amazing, perfectly cooked over a wood fire, the wood smoke gave a fantastic flavour to the crust on the steak.

For wine we opted for the Aalto Ribera del Duero which was delicious.

I’m afraid that we couldn’t manage desserts!

We’ll be back for sure...

Thought the food was excellent (unlike some reviews I've read!). Particularly the Asian selections.
Lobster roll fantastic! Dover sole sublime! Will be back.
Get a table in the Regent's St room, better than the rather vacuous main double volume area.
Back bar great too.

Only positive things to say here. The staff (hotel/restaurant reception and then waiting staff) were all very welcoming and polite. The music was discrete meaning we didn't have to shout over one another, a big plus these days as such venues are scarce. Food wise, it was fantastic: went for a scallop salad, followed by a rib eye and a soufflé and I would happily recommend any of those dishes. Great for special occasions.

I booked dinner as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. I asked via e-mail whether I could pre-order the food and have little birthday menus printed which was swiftly organised by the friendly and efficient staff. We were warmly welcomed, shown to our table and the food arrived soon after. The food was lovely - I would highly recommend the Sushi selection. Overall, we had a lovely evening and I would definitely come again!

We have been greeted with a huge smile from the entire team. I was surprised to see that restaurant was full including both dining sections, after a short while I knew what was the reason. Tasty food with attention to detail service will make you feel Royal. Thanks for the two ladies that looked after our table as well as Matteo the manager on the night. We will be back for sure and recommend to all.
