Delicious and Great Service
The food and service was great, but there was hurry
best french cusine ever
After thoroughly enjoying, and writing glowing reviews of Gordon Ramsay's Michelin-star restaurants over the past decade, including Claridge's before they shuttered, I had high expectations for a repeat performance at his Chelsea restaurant. This time we invited out-of-town guests who came in to run the London Marathon. What better way to reward their achievement! As usual, service was exemplary! However, on this occasion, the food wasn't. All four of us ordered the menu prestige (tasting menu). Every dish was exquisitely presented. Ingredients were fresh. Tasty. But to my surprise (and disappointment), the accompanying sauce in almost every dish was a let down. The Ravioli was delicious, but the sauce was too salty. The turbot and the lamb were cooked to perfection, but their sauce tasted completely benign. Our guests offered kind comments but we felt their lack of excitement, their indifference. Perhaps they felt ours. We were expecting to be "Wowed", if only because the Wow-factor has been so consistently served up in all our visits to Gordon's restaurants over the past 10 years. But we fell short tonight. Did we miss a total eclipse of the sun? I hope so.
The trip to the kitchen was sincerely meaningful. It was signature to me as a patron and a food lover. Cheers!
Very good indeed
The food was great and the service was even greater
I celebrated my 32nd birthday with the set lunch and had the most exceptional dining experience. The food was exquisite and the staff were so friendly, attentive and helpful without being stuffy or making you feel out of place. This was a special treat for me but I felt entirely comfortable and welcome in such a wonderful establishment and was even treated to a tour of the kitchen before leaving. I’d highly recommend the lunch and hope to have the opportunity to dine there again soon! Thank you to the whole team who made me feel special on my birthday
We had dinner at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay while visiting London for my husbands 30th birthday. It was an incredible experience, the service, food and ambiance are the best I have ever seen! Highly recommend for a special occasion!
Excited and lucky to have tried out Gordon Ramsay’s flagship restaurant. Would love to come back
Everything you hope for in a traditional fine dining restaurant
Horrible experience. Made a simple request of the manager and was treated horribly. The manager opted to raise his voice in such a way as to totally create a scene and embarrass us. I think he was confused and thought he was the patron and we were the management We asked him to lower his voice which he refused to do so we opted to leave as any chance of enjoying our meal was gone. We hadn’t eaten a thing and I was assured we wouldn’t be charged but we were. I have 100 s of dinners out around the world each year for both business and pleasure in no star to three star establishments and have never before encountered an experience as horrible as ours here. I have now taken time to read other reviews and see that this is in keeping with past behavior. Some might enjoy the show but keep in mind you are going to a show and any needs you might have are irrelevant shameful to see what was once a top restaurant take such a turn but I guess that is why the reservations are suddenly much easier to obtain
Impeccable technique but dishes are actually pretty boring for 3* place (as compared to other similar level restaurants). Slightly disappointing desserts, the chef seems to be better at savoury dishes when it comes to execution. In general both the pre-dessert and dessert were too sweet and the pre-dessert didn't really work as a palate cleanser.
Obviously all of the comments above should be understood as relative.
Best meal I’ve ever had in London. Great quality, world class service, worth the price
From the moment we approached the restaurant on the sidewalk, we were treated as VIPs. Everyone we came in contact with was exceptionally polite, professional, and friendly. It was a very cold and wet evening and as they patiently waited for us to remove all of our layer, they offered us a towel to dry food! We were seated immediately, and it was a treat to simply watch the efficiency and professionalism of all of the restaurant staff as they circulated around this very intimate restaurant attending to the guests. I never felt rushed nor abandoned throughout our 2+ hour dining experience. Each person we came in contact with enhanced the dining experience. We were offered choices from three different menu options and were informed about a dessert option that we needed to order before the dinner as it required additional prep time. Once we placed our orders, we were presented with a wine list and the sommelier came over to discuss our choices with as they would complement our dinner selections. There was obviously tight communication between all of our servers because we never had to repeat a request or answer the same question more than once. We had decided to go with three courses from the a la carte menu, but we received several additional “courses” in addition to our starter, main, and dessert. The food was impeccable. I have never had a better dining experience. Every single dish was plated beautifully and tasted exquisite. The wines were paired perfectly. I cannot say enough about this restaurant and our dining experience. My husband and I would love to return.
Overstaffed, under-executed, seems like it was a foreign language school (only the sommelier was a native English speaker), food was lacking, wind tunnel in the entrance (seriously?! can't you afford to have a properly closing front door?). Have no plans to ever return again.
Great set menu
Amazing! Very good service and foods
Gordon surely doesn't disappoint! One of the best three star Michelins I've ever had
Very good. Service was a bit below 3stars level but still good. Food was amazing at this price. Overall i had a great night at Gordon Ramsay.
I feel lucky to have visited Gordon Ramsay 5-6 times in the past and every time the experience is superb. The food is amazing ,the service is great with Jean Claude as the maestro and the overall experience is spectacular. It is in my favourite 3 restaurants worldwide. A truly legendary restaurant.
Fallen crown or bad night? Tables too tightly packed. Impersonal service makes you feel just like another booking. Food good but not memorable or standout. Price very high and not worth it. Surprisingly still 3*.
The worst of the Michelin restaurant dining experience.
Way too salty, can’t taste anything but the saltiness. Monotonous flavor of every course.
Horrible service. Totally forgot about not adding carrots and celery. Ignored our requests for tasting too salty. Twice!
I really feel fooled by the name Gordon Ramsay.
As usual outstanding in all aspects. Never had a disappointing experience here.
One piece of feedback I will offer though is that at first the service made us feel a little uncomfortable.
Our water glasses were filled after ever sip, as each canapés was finished the plate was whipped away whilst we were still chewing.
This got better as the dining room filled up but at first it was slightly intrusive. Perhaps better pacing is required.
Nice food, service was good but not exceptional. Went for the three course a la carte which was very nice although it felt overpriced. Wine was free poured and the measures are very short which was very disappointing.
Service was impeccable until we were finished and ready for the bill. Then it’s like that forgot we existed. Sat there for 30 plus min with no one asking if we wanted anything else or if were ready for the bill. Finally had to flag someone down. Also, the assistant sommelier stopped offering to fill my wife’s wine glass and acted slightly rude when I ask her for a third glass. Otherwise, the food was very good and the place is beautiful.
They served a dish with a nut in it to my friend with a nut allergy.
Everything is PERFECT.
Simply the best restaurant I’ve ever been to. The service, the food, the interior design could do with little improvement. But all in all perfect birthday party. My bucket list for GR restaurant has been ticked. The restaurant lives up to the name of Gordon Ramsey
Food was great as always. Service was uneven.
Superb food and.experience. One.of the best restaurant experiences
Food and service are good, but not comfortable to seat as too many tables in a small restaurant. Also share washroom with man and woman feel not so good
An experience that exceeded my expectations. Remembered our birthday and surprised us with cake, chef's surprises were provided to all throughout for the Menu Prestige, and unbelievable attentive service. Would recommend visiting and definitely plan on going back. Quick kitchem tour also did not disappoint. Matt Abé you do incredible work.
too expensive,but I have a good time in it.my girlfriend like it very much.we wait too long when earning.
Second time we went and enjoyed it tremendously
We had the tasting menu accompanied by the sommelier's choice of matching wines. This comes at a cost but if cost is a prime driver then this is not the place to go. I would definitely urge anyone to go down this route, however, as the wine choices were superb and added to the overall experience. The food was very good and the service excellent save for the maitre d who directed all his knowledge/information to my friend rather than to us. Him aside, the staff were what you'd expect from such an establishment - friendly, knowledgeable, informative & attentive without getting in the way. I'm gonna name check our sommelier, James, for his excellent wine choices & approach to this slightly uninformed quaffer.
It was just fantastic! Everything from the beginning till the very end!
