Outstanding food and experience and the service was out of this world.
We had a mix of the prestige and Carte Blanche menus which was incredible and looked amazing.
The staff were just fantastic, very professional, friendly, and welcoming.
I honestly can’t think of anything that was wrong.

I have been to many Michelin starred restaurants and this was a bit disappointing:

The food is delicious and well prepared, however the portions are way too small, why call it "ravioli' when is effectively one raviolo. I would like to mention the desert was really good . Wine list is incredible however extremely pricey.

The service is of course good, however i was surprised to see that face masks are not mandatory for the staff during a pandemic considering we just had 200 thousand cases a day, and the room is relatively small and cluttered.

As I said before the ambience is good, maybe not too modern, but the room is very small and the tables are very close and relatively small.

Price the fix menu is 170 pounds but expect to almost double that amount with extra costs (service/wine/ coffee and extra dishes)

The biggest disappointment!!! We hv always loved Ramsay’s & hv dined there many times. We went for the Carte Blanche menu at £220pp. This is described as a surprise menu. Well the surprise is how poor it was. Everything was lukewarm & I can honestly say there was not one course that was outstanding.
Jean Claude & the Ramsay team r excellent, sadly the chef has let them down 😢😢😢😢

This is our first high-end fine-dining experience. The overall experience was amazing!

The restaurant was smaller than I expected the distance between tables was quite close, which may be not very ideal but decent.

My partner and I had Carte Blanche, which was a chef surprising menu. We enjoyed all dishes very much, especially the starters. The waiters explained every single dish before serving, but they spoke a bit too quiet and too fast, which may be difficult for someone who does not have much fine dining experience to catch.

The wine seemed to be expensive, roughly 4 to 5 times higher than the price you can get outside the restaurant. But, they provided a very professional bottle opening service, which may be the reason.

We went there for our 10 year anniversary. I did mention that when booking on the OpenTable. However, they did not prepare any surprise, which was a bit let down :(. There were three tables celebrating birthdays on the same night and got a small birthday treat. I have to say we were envied them.

They sent an email before asking about dietary requirements. I mentioned one of us prefers vegan/vegetarian menu, but they did not offer the option on the night. Until I overheard one person sitting at the table next to us was having vegan options, I just realised I should've asked.

I would give the service 4* because of these two, but they did provide very professional service on the night so I think they deserve 5* in service.

I have been to this restaurant three times but think their service going down as seems more training need to give to staff. First I told them I don’t eat fish and they give me fish second the cutlery falls on the floor (not by me) twice and with the increase cost of the menu, I would expect them at least to maintain the same level of service.

There are many people but obviously no coordination among them.

Exceptional experience. After so many years, coming back here and still enjoying haute cuisine experience at its finest. Starters were remarkable, truffle linguine exquisite and main courses fostered each products flavours flawlessly. The Tatin dessert was cooked to perfection, and apples melted deliciously.
The staff was absolutely lovely and remarkably efficient.

I love Gordon Ramsay so the experience was more like a trip as a pilgrim.

It was so unexpected to be able to be invited into RGR's kitchen where I know, in a Michelin 3-starred restaurant, is definitely the most sacred place to even let any "outsider" in without proper business. Me as simply a guest, could receive that honor and celebrate my long-yearned success in realizing my dream of tasting Gordon's ultimate dishes, with Jean Claude's support, who introduced himself as the man that has followed Gordon for nearly 2 decades.

I was introduced to three kinds of menus: A La Carte, Prestige Menu and Carte Blanche. Before the event I was thinking about having Prestige Menu and that would be enough, but the waitresses were so good in delivering excellent services that I was persuaded and convinced myself that I should, taking this event as a once-in-a-lifetime one, grab the Carte Blanche Menu and feast myself to the fullest, and I did.

Carte Blanche means that you don't know what's going to be your food until it's put on your table, which really gives a sense of mystery, and I liked it. Although it was priced at 220 pounds per person, and with a glass of champagne, plus service fees, it went up to 282 pounds for myself. It was expensive, but in the end I was given the special menu signed by Chef Patron Matt Abe, with all the dishes different from the public menus, I felt like this was something unique for me, which really brought the experience to the next level. It definitely was worth the money!!!

I'm going to come again, Jean Claude is a very nice man, experienced and gentle. I would very much like to greet him again in RGR, while again enjoying the best food in the world presented by him and his service team. A kind and warming restaurant team can truly glue the customers to the restaurant, with marvelous food on the plates, from the bottom of their hearts. At least I feel so.

Love Gordon Ramsay, his food, and his restaurant teams!!!

Excellent experience. Food amazing. Husband wanted to lick the plate of sweetbreads clean. Ditto the pigeon and my lobster ravioli. Would go back for special occasions due to price. Was expensive but we always say you (hope to get) what you pay for and we did. All the staff are exceptional. Love the mature maitre d who is not trying to be a ‘character’. So glad they haven’t been on TV! Great sommeliers. Loved all the extras, amuse bouches etc. Gordon, you should be proud of the way this flagship continues to operate so beautifully, long may it reign.

This has 3 Michelin Stars for a reason! Every dish has an unorthodox combination of flavours that you would never imagine would work together so well and cooked perfectly.

I'd highly recommend going with the prestige menu, which is the taster course as you pay a small amount extra but get 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 desserts AND complementary food at the start and end. My personal favourites were the: autumn salad, scallops, turbot, sorbet and souffle.

I've been living and working in Vermont USA and only finally returned to the UK just before Covid occurred. I was given a 'surprise' 60th birthday treat which this has taken 18 months to reorganise......but it was still worth the wait.

Having eaten at the Chelsea restaurant on several occasions in the early 2000's I was delighted to find that Jean Claude is still running the front of house. He's a star and always is easy to approach. The staff all seemed to offer a personal style and were not conforming to a formula. This allows the whole dining experience to be so much more enjoyable.

We were treating two old friends who over the years whilst we were working in the US have offered us a bed when we are in London. Do expect to pay around £250 a head for the tasting menu and some vino. I feel this is reasonable value for money and all of us enjoyed our varied supper. Nothing failed to make an impact on our taste buds and the fish course was particularly good.

Most of our fellow diners were affable but of course we had one noisy couple who seem to think it is acceptable to live stream their supper and at the same time offer a loud running commentary. Thankfully they were in a corner and we felt most of the other diners, and indeed some staff members were embarrassed by their uncouthness. However these days we appreciate that any dining establishment has to broaden out their client base and also accept some demanding clients.

We hope to return for a 65th celebration as we feel the understated atmosphere is be commended as you can chat due to the low noise level

A bit pricey for what you're getting. Service is a bit full on, but everyone was very pleasant. Better food can be found elsewhere in London these days. Possibly worth a visit if you've never been, but not somewhere to go regularly.

The food and service at RGR is truly exceptional, honestly breathtaking stuff. The presentation and taste sensation that is every dish will be ingrained in your memory forever.

However, for £175 per person, I found the wine pairing menu lacking; 5 125ml free poured glasses of wine for nearly £200 is per person is insane especially when none of the wines appeared to be extracted by a wine preservation system like Coravin.

For £200 you'd expect 175ml at least and to experience some seriously exceptional wines, but that didn't seem the case when we went unfortunately.

However, as I say, the food was unbelievably good and the service was better than anything I've ever seen.

Great food beautiful produce really well presented and the service was excellent, the knowledge of the sommelier was excellent too. Only thing I didn’t like was selling of the truffle dish with eggs for an additional £40. Felt unnecessary when your paying what your paying already, it wasn’t pushy but I didn’t like that part of the experience and wouldn’t expect that at the table it should be part of the menu or not in my opinion. 10/10 experience overall though will be back in the new year
