We always love this restaurant, unfortunately we didn’t actually get to it this time as we were booked in for our 8 wedding anniversary the day we went back into lockdown. We shall love to book back in as soon as the restaurant opens again.

My wife and i had a really nice night here this Saturday 12/ 12 /20.
Food was fabulous and tasty, staff friendly and attentive.
Just one thing i felt the portion size was limited in comparision to the price,
We would have given this place outstanding other than this.
Saying this we would visit again but please increase the portion size so you feel like you've had value for money.

What a great restaurant......
Could do with more on the menu for the people that are not there for the fish. Otherwise a super place with great staff. Will definitely book again.

The owner and Chef Mr. Anthony and all his staff are a well oiled and attentive and a very professional team.

All the food and cocktails served to us - was all superb.

The DJ when allowed to play his music in the Front Bar is also excellent – he will note the mood and is able to play the music that will appeal to all the clientele.

I like Claridge’s & The Ritz in London - followed closely by The Lobster And Grill, Sutton.

Excellent service, food had been a bit hit and miss on previous visits but this was by far the best meal I’ve had here. Steak was cooked to just the right level. No complaints whatsoever.

Sunday lunch. Well adapted to Pandemic protocols. Temperature taken on arrival, tables well spaced. Servers recognised us from several previous visits. Still same chef. We each had a bowl of mussels and frites. The mussels were a good size. I finished with a chocolate souffle and ice cream, which nicely melted. A good lunchtime experience at a very reasonable price

Service kind of started as it meant to go on...
Waited 25 minutes for our drinks, our starters came up before them.
We ordered oysters and they hadn’t been loosened from the shell so we had to send them back.
Prawns were over cooked, however the sauce was very nice and the calamari was Very greasy., we didn’t finish them.
Waitress came to take our desert order before we had even had our mains.
The restaurant was only half full at this point so not particularly busy.
Main courses were delicious and would come again for that reason.
Lovely cocktails and friendly staff .

We have been here several times and wanted to return for Sunday lunch today (26 July). Their website did not say whether they were open again, but a phone call confirmed they were. The refurbishment done just before the lockdown has provided a nice light dining area.
The chefs we recognised, as also the maitre d'. We were the only customers until several arrived at 14.00
I had my favourite chicken liver pate, and my wife 3 lovely scallops as starters. I enjoyed my mains of a pea risotto, and she the sea bass. I finished with a peach melba, rather huge but rather nice! The menu is very meat orientated and I doubt vegetarians would find that much to eat.
The Romanian waitress, who we had not met before, was attentive and efficient.
On entry, out temperatures were quickly taken and there was a hand gel dispenser - otherwise few Covid 19 paraphenalia.
Definitely stays on our list for a repeat visit

Wish I could review the restaurant but after buying a Groupon voucher and booking my reservation through Open Table I took a friend for lunch to find that the restaurant is in fact under refurbishment! Very embarrassing and had to pay for another lunch in a lovely restaurant just up the road called The Spaghetti Tree which was great!
Groupon now states that my groupon code has been used so need to try and get my money back.

We arrived with a confirmed booking to find the restaurant was completely shut. No info on front door, cleary a refit in progress or it had been sold on. Had to go elsewhere.

Visited Brasserie Vacherin for NYE and it was the worst experience. Our food got mixed up numerous times, the waiters had to be reminded countless times as they forgot our drinks and a very RUDE manager who seemed to argues with customers rather than resolve their issue. An overall poor service from a restaurant that could have been so much better. Won’t be visiting anytime soon nore would I recommend the place.

We generally like dining here but they got 2 things wrong:

- 3 of us had steak and they mixed up our cooking preferences, so we each got the wrong steaks

- The bill twice resembled nothing like what we had, with various extra drinks added. Even after we argued it, they got it wrong. As a result, we left the service charge off the payment.

The annoying thing was that we recommended the couple with us trying Brasserie Vacherin, and they have been left with an unfavourable impression. Suffice to say a planned group booking for over 10 for Sunday roast in January will now be held elsewhere.

The food was decent but the service was slow and confused. We came in for their menu's bragging point, the chateaubriand for two and the waiter didn't understand me. I had to indicate with my hands a steak about a foot long with a special sauce (he wouldn't have known the name). He said, oh that, it's not available on the holiday. Well, thanks for telling me and not taking it off the online menu. There are real French restaurants around I'm sure if you want the real thing.

Nice table in a corner, with lots of Christmas parties at other tables. Service was very slow, but friendly. Food was a long time coming, and over-cooked - eg sea bass very dry. Desserts were not great - eg tough chewy pastry in the apple tart tatin. Probably won’t go back.

Slow, unprofessional service. Food was either over cooked or undercooked. This was once a really good place but now, its terrible. I wont be going back and i recommend you look elsewhere for a meal in this price range.
