Average food, clinical service and really lacking atmosphere. If it weren't for the Ramsay name, this would not survive.

Specific areas for improvement:

- bread was cold. Butter was so cold, it sliced.
- Jerusalem artichoke veloute was tepid
- starter of scallops - 1 scallop. Yes a whole scallop.
- clinical service; a waiter actually moved my bread while I had s piece in my hand
- main course of gnocchi was a starter size

I could go on (maybe if I get a TV series pointing out flaws and restaurant disappointments)?

There are much better alternatives in London.

Food was okay but little salty.
It was really crowded and unorganized restaurants. I heard several complains from other table. I thought they were waiting for their desert for more than 30 min. Apparently, their dessert was delivered to my table. ;)
Also, several servers came to us and ask the same questions over and over which was interrupt the conversation with my wife of celebrating our anniversary day.

Took forever to be served , I was waiting for someone to order wine but no one came . They forgot about my birthday , I had to mention when I asked for the bill . Just gave us an excuse . Usually when I go to other Gordon Ramsay ( 3 Michelin ) they would greet me saying happy birthday . My mother also said she’s not keen on coriander but the server has forgot about it . When I told the lady about the experience during the payment she said I can just deduct service charges. It’s not about money .... I felt like they were discriminating us because we are Asian . Such a shame . I will never ever go to Pétrus again . P.s the ribeye was so tough that my mother couldn’t cut with her knife .

Very disappointed with this visit. Food was not as good , service was not as good. I think Petrus has gone down hill. They have a new head chef and I am sorry to say that the food was not as good as before. Even the menu selections were not as good. Previously, they always had lobster on the menu. This time there were 2 fish selections but no shellfish selections in the main entree section.
My husband had the Dorset crab starter n the avocado was not ripe. My short ribs were tender but tasteless had not been for the sauce, which was a tad too salty. Husband had turnbot and he said it wasn’t fresh.
Don’t think we’ll return.

Dined with my son as a special treat. Got the tasting menu and wine pairing and they were gracious enough to accommodate requests to add to a couple dishes to the tasting. Also allowed for a switch of pigeon to lamb on one of our services. The switch was one tiny frenched lamb chop. Other than that - food was fantastic - great flavors, very inventive. Sommelier who started the evening with us was terrific, suddenly apologized that he would be leaving before we finished our meal. Rest of the service after that point was basic neglect...forgot one wine pairing for us (on the ultimate pairing list at 450 pounds), no offer of cheese course, almost as if they were just waiting for us to finish so they could close up even though we weren't the only ones still eating and it was only 11pm. They did remove the charge for the skipped glass of wine and the automatic service charge from the bill and apologized at the end of the meal. So tried to make it all ok, but for more than $1000 for two folks, still left me feeling underwhelmed...

Wow. I wish I could say all I wanted about Petrus in this review. In short, all I can say is if you are hesitating, don’t. I live in an amazing culturally diverse “foodie” community, and I cannot express how impressed I was with the food at Petrus. The service was beyond compare with individual wait staff assigned to every possible need. Despite being a very expensive and fancy restaurant, the interior is inviting and the wait staff is both warm and accommodating. A staff member mentioned to me that they commit themselves 100% to service and it is so apparent that it’s true. This was the experience of a lifetime for me and despite the high price tag, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

Taking second thoughts I think this restaurant deserves a 1 star score. Overall the food is good, except this very nasty main dish of Turbot I had, which has a £10 surplus charge. Firstly, the fish was not fully cooked with some small parts in the middle still raw. Secondly, various parts of the fish fillet had a terrible bitter fish guts taste...THIS is so BASIC that I'm sure any restaurant should be able to clean and prepare properly, it is ABSOLUTELY UNBEARABLE for a michelin starred restaurant. I didn't argue this much at the time as I really don't want this to destroy my good dinning mood. I told the waiter politely when they come to collect the plate with the leftovers. He said he will report to the chef, but then I had not heard anything back until we finished our meal.

When the bill came (and we were waited for like more than half hour to get it...) it was a full price bill...We had no choice but to brought up the issue again when we were asked if things are OK. Then, there was another wait of like 15-20 mins, finally we got the bill with only the £10 surplus charge off... I would say, even a normal standard restaurant would do better than this. Any restaurant we went before would have at least taken this main completely off the bill on this kind of mistakes.

The mistake on the food was so basic that shouldn't happen at all in a michelin restaurant. The service and attitude here is worse than a high street restaurant. Poor experience! Very disappointed!

Probably one of the best restaurants I’ve been to (and I’ve seen quite a few). The food was tasty and on point, (a la carte btw). Different wines were matched perfectly after having a really good introduction to the individual sort.
We were looked after really well and even invited to the kitchen, being introduce to the staff and head chef. A really good experience that I highly recommend. They deserve that star!

Easily one of the best meals I’ve ever had, as expected. What really set our tasting menu apart in addition to perfect flavors was how perfectly portioned it was. I was able to eat every bite of every course without feeling overly stuffed. Service and staff were a delight.
