We had a lovely valentines dinner. The tasting menu was excellent with the paired wines. The bonus was that Michel Roux appeared and gave my wife a red rose. Result!

Absolutely lovely menu for Valentines day. The service was great and the place has a lovely homely atmosphere. Price wise it is not cheap but is very reasonably priced given the high quality of food you get here. Would definitely go again.

We went for Valentine's Day dinner. 6 course treating menu was simply divine, accompanied by a very nice bottle of champagne. Service was impeccable as ever and the price was incredibly inexpensive. The evening was made even more special because Chef (yes, THE Chef) bright a rose to each table and had a quick chat with us.

Great food - I mean, really great food - in a perfect ambience, with attentive and friendly serving staff. Great for a relaxed and intimate special celebratory meal, which is what we were enjoying. I guess it would be great for any occasion, if you afford to dine there more regularly. But it's the sort of place you go for something special and are not disappointed. You really do get what you pay for, on all fronts.

A thoroughly underwhelming experience at the Roux at Parliament Square. The food was very good, but in no way comparable to other Roux restaurants such as Roux at the Landau, and does not in any way justify the high prices. The wine list was extensive, if unimaginative and the ambiance more akin to a hotel restaurant, with lift music and mundane decor. But it is the service is what stands out as particularly poor here. Staff appear very badly trained and inexperienced, and totally unsuited to a restaurant of this apparent class and stature - slow, clumsy and inattentive. It took a full 10 mins for menus to arrive, amuse-bouche arrived a further 15 mins after ordering, starters arrived minutes after the bread did, water ran out and a refill was never offered, and dishes were very described poorly and in haste. All of that with a bill for two people, two courses with coffee and one bottle of mid priced wine for £225 = very poor value.

Unless things drastically improve I will not be back and I would discourage others to avoid others suffering the same fate and experience.

We were given a virgin experience voucher for light tasting menu and 2 cocktails, the food was divine; it was like being in the Masterchef kitchen , wonderful plates of gorgeous food kept appearing. The staff were very efficient but not intrusive and nothing was too much trouble; we will certainly return and definitely recommend to friends

Had a lovely time at Roux at Parliament Square. The restaurant was pretty quiet for a Friday but I expect that's due to the location. It does mean that you can hear a lot of the other guests conversations. The wine was excellent and the food was very good! There were so many extra mini courses which were a lovely touch. Interestingly, service is not included in the bill, as standard. Would definitely recommend.

Good food, not amazing but good, at the right level for the restaurant. Bread particularly good. Wine list focused on brand names rather than good QPR - decent if you spend 3 digits. Service was somewhat slow and a bit brusk when it arrived. Cheese with wine flight was fun.

The Roux name is well known for fine dining and of course the main restaurant (La Gavroche) is a 2 star michelin - but this second restaurant on Parliament square is a delight. We had the tasting menu and it was fantastic - lots of interesting dishes with great flavour combinations. We don't drink but I noticed that the wine list looked comprehensive, if a little expensive. We had a lovely evening and the staff and ambience were wonderful.

Our overall experience was disappointing. We sat for a while before being given menus and were not asked if we would like an aperitif. When our glasses of champagne came the champagne was not cold enough. After our entree I wanted a glass of red wine and asked our waitress which wine she would recommend. She said she would get the sommelier for me. 15 minutes later he had still not arrived and our main courses had. I asked again and he came over rather grumpily. I asked him which wine he would recommend and he swiftly told me but did not explain why or go through any options. The wine was then poured but I was not offered to taste it first.
The overall morale of the staff seemed low. I would not go back again.

Very good flavours, presentation and attention to detail. The cooking was spot on.
Portions are not generous but over 3 courses we were left sufficiently full.
Bread is high quality and the butter and caramelized onion spread delicious.
Service is efficient but lacked any engagement or warmth.
Desserts delicious and perfectly executed.
Wine list over priced but some decent bottles around the 50 quid mark.
Fair value for quality.
A beautiful dining room and nice warm ambiance.

We've eaten many good meals here before. But this one was massively disappointing. We had an 8 course tasting menu. The first two courses took 90 minutes to serve. Then the rest were raced past us. Many of the dishes were excellent, but this was not a good dining experience.

We arrived for lunch at 12.30 and found it cold as the air con was on, as the restaurant filled up the temperature regulated. That is the only thing that could potentially be altered.
The food was exquisite, the service brilliant and a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. A return visit is a definite.

Extraordinary food and incredible value, great place for a Business lunch or a date. Service was clearly over stretched though and not always easy to catch the attention of waiting staff, bar was unattended on our arrival for quite some time. No menus provided whilst at bar and drinks and menus were nearly 10 mins after being sat at table. Still a great experience though (my 3rd visit) and I would go again.
