Le Gavroche - Michel Roux Jr

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.

    My first experience at Le Gavroche was very good indeed. The ambience is very formal but cosy, and as a single diner I was placed in a lovely area with a full view of the restaurant. Service was professional but friendly. The cooking is extremely solid and old-school - thoroughly enjoyable, but perhaps not as magical as I'd hoped it'd be. Particular standouts for me (Menu Exceptionnel) were the souffle suissesse, scallop in clam minestrone, black pudding with scotch egg, and roast suckling pig.

    Le Gavroche, London We had a wonderful evening. We were placed in a romantic spot, a sort of alcove to the side. The food was amazing, and although comfortably the most expensive meal we've had we have no complaints on the price. As Muslims who eat halal we had to ask for some flexibility from the kitchen with sauces etc but they were completely accommodating. I just wish it wasn't so hard to book a table at a more convenient time!

    After finally managing to get a reservation after two years of trying, Le Gavroche was well worth the wait. Everything about the experience was perfect. Excellent, professional and attentive service and superlative food. The £52 lunch menu was great value and gave a good flavour of what the restaurant is capable of. An extra nice touch was Michel Roux coming out to meet diners at their tables. It certainly lived up to the hype and I would highly recommend a visit.

    My partner & I visited Le Gavorche on Monday 30 April to start a week of celebrations (his birthday week). Our table was booked for 930pm and the restaurant was buzzing and full of anticipated excitement. We opted for the Menu Exceptional. Each course is an art form, meticulously presented, intricately explained, exquisitely mastered tastes & textures for all senses.... We opted for a 2004 Margaux by Chateau Lascombe...a powerful explosion in every sip. The service at Le Gavorche has to be the best I have encountered and no less than 2 staff members were constantly within our reach and it seemed as though they anticipated our every request or need before we even thought of them. True indulgence and a wonderful evening had

    Le Gavroche London Everything you would expect and possibly more!!! We had the tasting menu with wine. They complemented each other perfectly. During the meal we had a bonus when Michel Roux himself came out to chat to the diners. All in all a fantastic experience deserving of 2 Michelin stars and not too sure why it does not have 3!!!

    My wife and I visited Le Gavroche for lunch as a birthday treat. The decor was quite traditional but cosy. The atmosphere was excellent and the place was very busy considering it was a lunch time. The staff were very attentive and the food was wonderful. As an additional treat, Michel Roux Jr turned up and wished my wife a happy birthday and took a picture with her which she absolutely loved. It should be said however that Le Gavroche was very expensive so will remain a rare treat.

    Amazing dinner at Le Gavroche. We ordered from A la Carte and had three courses each. Food was really good, especially for the starters. Would recommend to anyone. The only down point was we didn't get to meet Michel Roux Jr.

    Le Gavroche - what a treat! Wonderful food, a lovely Christmassy atmosphere and the icing on the cake was meeting the main man who was only too happy to circulate the room and chat to all of the diners. The only downside was that staff were slightly too attentive and I felt like we were being watched. Overall we highly recommend this restaurant for a real treat.

    Both myself and my wife were really excited and looking forward to our visit to Le Gavroche and i am delighted to say we were not dissapointed. The restaurant itself was very welcoming ,the overall atmosphere was one of quiet refinement. We chose from the A La Carte menu and i have to say all the dishes we had were executed perfectly, we did feel slightly rushed which was a shame as there is a second sitting and the staff did seem a touch obtrusive as they waited by our table to serve everyone.

    Birthday treat for my wife. Could not fault the staff, so attentive and friendly. Champagne offered in waiting lounge with menu. Excellent choice of food. Restaurant set up for Christmas. We were first diners and notice 10+ staff so no shortage of attention. Food was excellent as to be expected. However, my medium rare steak was on the tepid side but still enjoyable. I would certainly dine here again.

    Service at Le Gavroche was good although some of the staff seemed a little lost. We opted for the 9 peice taster course with wine. The cocktails and wine were amazing but the food.....all I can say is Butter butter butter on everything. You couldn't taste the scallops, only the popcorn strong butter. Lobster avec butter, butter avec butter, and then more of the stuff. Not nice. Ruined our wedding anniversary meal. In fact, I would have to be strongly persuaded to venture there again.

We were not disappointed. The food, ambiance and service all exceeded expectations and all of us have shared our experience several times over with family and friends. Thanks to all at Le Gavroche for making our lunch a very special occasion.

The service was very friendly and attentive without being overbearing and the restaurant has a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Everyone in my group enjoyed their experience and I would happily recommend Le Gavroche to anyone.

    Not our first visit to the Gavroche. It's everything you would expect from a 2 Michelin Star restaurant. Every detail has been thought about. So, with their business lunch deal as an added incentive, there's no excuse not to try it . On this occasion, we had the added bonus of Michel Roux jr visiting our table !

    I can't pick any flaws with either the food or the service - both were first class (my venison was exceptional) - I can see why this place has its michelin stars. However I felt the ambience was a little old fashioned and too formal for my taste. I had the duck consomme starter, was it good? yes. Was it £20 good, I'm not so sure.

    Le Gavroche. On a Monday night in October. Hazel and me for our anniversary. "Do you think MRJ will be in?" we discussed at length. Not only was he in - but he came over, chatted for a while and was seriously the most charming man I have ever met. The food? Well perfect obviously! From duck foie gras and bone marrow through perfect beef and majestivally balanced rabbit, completing with an amazing chefs assiette of deserts and the best ever coffee & petits fours. Recommend the Bolinger rose.
