Holder of two Michelin stars and, more importantly, winner of the OpenTable Best Food award, Michel Roux Jr’s Le Gavroche is among London’s most well loved restaurants. An unimposing doorway in the heart of Mayfair leads in to a temple of gastronomy. Whet your palate with an aperitif in the cosy bar with its country house atmosphere before moving in to the classically designed main restaurant where crisp white linen meets heritage paint colours and tasteful artwork. There may be a dress code here but Le Gavroche is nonetheless unpretentious and comfortable – sink in to a comfortable chair and be spoilt for choice by some of the finest French food the UK has to offer and the pick of a 60,000 bottle wine cellar.

    We have been going to le Gavroche for about 25 years on and off. The cooking is miraculous every time but a word of praise for the the front of house staff who are so passionate and involved with the product, if I can use so crass a word. Superb , genuine involvement from the sommelier. A real top class experience.

    Booked a table for 2 for a special occasion and couldn’t have asked for more from the moment we walked through the door to the moment we left. Service was exceptional … we had wondered if it might be stuffy but every single member of staff was friendly and accommodating. My other half has some severe food allergies and restaurant accommodated these without any issue at all and the quality of food didn’t suffer because of the changes they made. Cannot praise or recommend enough.

    Very nice to experience the fine dining, beautiful restaurant. We had the 7 course menu exceptional, all quite nice but nothing outstanding, maybe we expected too much. Food was warm not hot, main course could have done with a fondant potato or something as a slither of veal and some peas really was not enough. All beautifully presented as expected.

    It was a special meal for my wife’s 60th birthday and it was an amazing experience. The food was fantastic, every course and wine pairing was perfect. The service was fast, very friendly and very efficient without being obtrusive, it was the perfect balance. We had a wonderful time and it was an evening we will never forget.

It was my 60th birthday, and I was there with my wife, our daughter, and her partner and I can not think of a better restaurant to have celebrated it at. Also had the opportunity to meet Michel Roux Jr. :) Thankyou Michel, thank you to the restaurant team, great experience.

Most of food great, scallops and Turbot dishes needed attention - scallops - stringy, slights tuff and turbot not light or flakey .. slightly tuff and under cooked .. Overall partners starter and main was nice. We did feed back to Manager but no apology..

    Starter and dessert were both fine - no issues, and the Cheese Souffle was amazing. For the main, I ordered the Lamb Cutlets with Courgettes & Stuffed Courgette Flower, Black Garlic & Lamb Jus. The lamb had no real flavour, although cooked perfectly. The courgettes were lovely but the green (pea?) puree on the plate was tasteless. There was a lack of texture on the plate which could have been resolved with some potatoes (fondant/other). So the overall cooking was great, it's just that this course did not leave me with the feeling that I had tasted a 2 star dish. The service was fine but constant, with water being poured constantly. This is not necessary in my opinion. I have marked "No" to recommending this restaurant but perhaps if someone were going to try the Menu Exceptionnel the experience would be truly 2 star.

    The quality and balance of flavours of the food is as to be expected. The cheese board as good as any in U.K. the service staff knowledgeable and professional even the young ones well trained. As always when available Michel Roux Jr although busy in the kitchen found time to say a few words to all the tables. Price for quality and service very fair.

    I booked our visit as a surprise for my partner's 50th birthday - quite simply, the best dining experience of our lives. We photographed EVERYTHING in case we never get the opportunity to eat there again. The staff, the food, the atmosphere was all of the highest quality and standard. Michel was there also, and took time to speak with every table and oblige anyone who wanted a photograph. We even got a signed menu, and were still on cloud nine the next day. There is a reason why this classic restaurant is still going strong today, and their two Michelin stars are extremely well deserved.

    Absolutely exceptional. Quality and taste of the meal was fantastic. The early drink (cocktail) recommendations were spot on. The wine pairing recommendations for our menu choices were perfect. The service was the best I have experienced in any restaurant, the staff were incredibly accomodating to us making extra effort for us because our sitter cancelled, the location of our table was clearly thought through in advance also. I obviously wouldn't recommend taking a child with you (you'll have a better time without one) but we had no choice as we didn't want to miss out reservation. There is absolutely nothing you could nitpick. It was a nice personal touch for the chef to greet us also.

    A sublime experience. The service, presentation and food were outstanding; we had the tasting menu with the paired wines, the staff could not have been more charming explaining each dish and the reason for the wine selection. Service was very friendly but formal enough to make the occasion feel very special. The pre-dinner canapes were delicious, particularly the little taramasalata tartlet, and everything on the tasting menu was a dish we would have all chosen, with the veal main course and cheese trolley being highlights. The cheese souffle to start was a delight, and the beautiful petit fours with coffee were the perfect way to end. An expensive treat but worth it for a special occasion.

    From the moment we arrived we were made to feel as if there was nothing the team couldn't do for us. The food and the wine pairings more than exceeded our expectations. The choice of cheeses was amazing. Just an exceptional evening. I am sure that we will be making another booking in the future.

    My husband and I were very disappointed in the restaurant. We were rushed into the restaurant downstairs without offering if we would like a drink in the bar first and we both felt rushed all the way through the meal. We had only just finished our meal and they were rushing us to choose the dessert. It is the second time for us but that was some years ago so thought we should give it another try. I had the Cheese Soufflé which was their signature dish, I chose this as I love Cheese Soufflé but not this one! Far too much cream, I couldn’t eat it and swapped with my husband who also didn’t like it. We had the pasta for main which was more like a broth rather than a mushroom sauce, I wasn’t keen on that either. Big selection of cheese but not biscuits, I was only offered Oat biscuits which were very hard, however I did ask for bread which they gave me. It’s overpriced and underwhelming I would not recommend this restaurant.

    My wife and I dined at Le Gavroche to celebrate our fortieth wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed! The attention to detail is exceptional, the staff friendly and professional, and the food a delight. We had the Menu Exceptionnel and enjoyed every course. A nice touch was a chocolate ‘Happy Anniversary’ on our Shortbread, white chocolate and strawberry sweet. At these prices it’s not the sort of dining we would do on a regular basis but we don’t regret a single mouthful!
