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.

    Very disappointed. Sat in the bar upstairs for 30 minutes waiting for table . Canapés were average, I can’t even remember what we were served so definitely not memorable. I opted for cheese soufflé, Luke warm and more like a soggy meringue. Very disappointed. My wife had mushroom ravioli, again Luke warm and underseasoned. Second course turbot, again Luke warm , my wife opted for lamb ,again like warm , both sent back. Gave dessert a miss. Petit fours were the best part of the meal. We visited le Gavroche some years back and it was outstanding. If I was an Michelin inspector I would strip all stars!!! Really really disappointed. Table next to us were moaning too about poor service. Will not be going back. You simply cannot rely on the famous name above the door and serve sub standard food. A real shame🥲

    We have been going to the La Gavroche for some 30 years and have noticed some changes. When Michael Roux Jr was in the kitchen everything seemed excellent. Now it can be be excellent to just not quite so. With the doing away with the Cloches the food sometimes is not as hot as one would like in arrival at the table. £700 for two one expects the small detail to be catered for. Overall good not not as good as it used to be. The menu has also got a lot smaller and the cheese board is now included in the Tasting menu.

    Having to book so long in advance, we probably had too high expectations to start with. But for a two star Michelin restaurant all 4 of us expected more. There was no imagination in the menu, we ordered a range of different starters, main courses and deserts. The food was tasty and well prepared but we have had many more interesting and more memorable meals in restaurants of this calibre in London and it didn’t live to our expectations. Not to mention that the caramel & cherry desert was simply not a good combination full stop. The service was efficient and attentive but having a card to advertise Michel Roux cook books on the table was definitely not and more the type of thing you expect from a bistro instead !

    We chose Le Gavroche to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and weren't disappointed, we went for the menu exceptionelle with flight of wines and every course hit the mark. Larger portions than expected for a tasting menu so go hungry! All the staff from Sweetie our waitress to Christos the sommelier (who although in training was excellent) couldn't do enough to make sure that we enjoyed our evening. The food and wine were exceptional, the atmosphere comfortable and so far from pretentious as to make us feel that were were out dining with friends. The only reason why this didn't get five stars all round is that the cost of eating out in La Gavroche means that it is not an everyday or even an occasional event but we saved hard to get here for (what was to us anyway) a once in a lifetime experience and we weren't disappointed in any way. Monsieur Roux, your staff are a credit to you and while we didn't get the opportunity to meet you (hope you enjoyed your time in France!), your presence could be felt.

    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.

    The service was welcoming and amazing, the food - well I was so impressed with the food - edible works of art, the tastes were balanced and complemented each other. 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.

    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.
