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.

    I was looking for the type of restaurant my friend would enjoy for her 80th birthday and decided it must be Le Gavroche. I have eaten there a few times over the years and have always enjoyed the food, the ambiance, the friendliness of the staff. And last Saturday was no exception - I can only say the evening was Perfect. The food, from the canapes to the dessert was of the highest standard. Delicious! The staff are absolutely wonderful - a discrete but efficient service, friendly and helpful and the surroundings luxurious. A perfect experience for my friend's 80th birthday - thank you.

    Overall wonderful. Some dishes were exquisite in fact. Expensive yes but an amazing experience and worth it. Only point to raise issue with was having to wait over 30 mins in the bar from the booking time. Yes a little annoying but from the first taste of food this was forgiven

    We ate here for our honeymoon in London recently . The food was absolutely spectacular and the service impeccable. The meal was everything you would expect from a two star Michelin restaurant with the storied reputation of Le Gavroche. This was significantly impacted for the worse by a table of five underdressed individuals seated next to us who chose to document their meal “for Instagram” with multiple iPhone cameras and a handheld studio style light which had the approximate brightness of a small star in the dimly lit dining room. The staff did nothing to curb this until the 5th time one of them shined the light directly in my eyes and I was forced to intervene myself to put an end to the obnoxious behavior. Only once I verbally confronted the man with the light (which should never be another diner’s responsibility) did the maitre’d finally come over to address the problem and apologize to other nearby diners for the disturbance. I have no problems with people photographing their meal, I did the same, but the use of flashes and an tremendously bright handheld light is just a bridge too far. One would expect a restaurant of the caliber of Le Gavroche to curb this ridiculous behavior before it becomes an issue for other diners who are all paying over £280 per person for the privilege.

    Having last visited the restaurant in 2009, it was always a dream of us to go back! The ambiance was amazing and so the excellence of the food. Our manager was amazing and helped my husband in his wheelchair. When we experienced problems with our one guest, their orders were immediately cancelled when they had to leave. The sommelier Remi Cousin, deserves a special mention for his excellent finesse and manners.

    Eating at Le Gavroche is truly a gastronomic delight. The food is of exceptionally quality & utterly delicious. The wines are not affordable by the bottle which is such a shame. The staff are attentive & caring The ambience was a little restrictive certainly not a place to go if you want to talk & laugh whilst enjoying your company.

    We came at 17:30 for our appointment at 18:00 and were surprised that we could go straight to the diner table downstairs. Both of us were dressed as it should be but we noticed that there were already other customers seated there from asian origine with only T-shirts next to us, to this was a little bit disappointing to see. The menu was good but there was no main course in the menu exceptional anymore as it should be when You take the menu exceptional. The food came also much to quickly after one another, so we said this to the servants as well. The servants were outstanding but overall this was not to the standard we use to get at this highly praised 2 Michelin starred restaurant.

    My three other diners had an excellent dining experience, they had scallops, lamb and turbot. My souffle was chewy and my crab salad was bland. Also, I put aside the adornment and felt tiny bits of cartilage in the meat. We are all agreed that that the service was overbearing when it used to be almost, and most welcomely, invisible. I will not return to this restaurant. This is a great regret to me. Guy Sharp

    Our 5th visit in 5 years - our annual treat to ourselves. We always elect the menu exceptional with matching wines. The sommelier was absolutely spot on, just ahead of each course arriving, much better than our previous visit. The front of house staff were cheerful, knowledgeable and had time to engage in light conversation. Always feel welcome. The cost has noticeably increased, maybe even 25% - that’s the only less positive observation to make.
