Another lovely meal, fantastic food, wonderful service from lovely staff. However if I was being picky
(which I am clearly), we were disappointed there was a baby at a table quite near us which although in general was pretty well behaved, however it did have a couple of crying moments and that's not really what you want in a restaurant out to celebrate your wedding anniversary.

We visited at lunch time and found the welcome very friendly. The ambiance was good and we could hear ourselves speak throughout the lunch. Food was great and very accommodating of my gluten free diet. Perfect.

Used to be able to write that this was a neighbourhood gem - but The French Table’s fame has rightly spread. The only problem you will have is getting a table. Excellent food, beautifully presented, with a front of house team who understand hospitality.

Best kept secret in Surbiton. We are so lucky to have such an exceptional restaurant in our local area. Food and attention to detail is superb and the staff are delightful.

Our only concern was that the main specials were not mentioned/offered.

We overheard someone ordering beef which is what we have preferred but could not see on the menu. It was not until new diners sat next to us were offered rump steak as a special that we realised too late.

Spacing between the tables for 2 was quite intrusive and would prefer a round table by the window next time

Really very good food. Lovely sincere and efficient service. It was just a bit dull. Rows of straight couples and a party table of women. A bit formulaic?

Great dining experience for a BIG birthday - staff are lovely, really attentive and the food was absolutely delicious (from the taster menu). We enjoyed flavours we would never have imagined would go together. The tables feel a little too cosily close to dining neighbours although we didn't feel too overheard, but it would be nice to feel just a bit more private when having such an awesome meal.

Absolutely brilliant. We are local to the restaurant but have not been before. We went for our 10th anniversary. My wife is vegan and they catered to her tastes. The food was excellent. The service from the staff was perfect - not too much but just enough. Overall an excellent experience and I would definitely recommend them.

We had a wonderful birthday lunch at TFT. From the moment we arrived until we left we were treated like special guests. The food was first rate, superbly cooked and well presented. The wine paired with our food was perfectly matched and complemented each course very well. Our new local favourite restaurant. Thank you for making my wife’s birthday so memorable.

The food is very good, service polite.
However did find the lights annoying as they flickered constantly above our seats.
Wish the restaurant was a it bigger -it does feel like you are in someones old sitting room!

We decided to have the tasting menu with matching wines. From beginning to end the food and wine were a delight. The staff were attentive and explained each course fully. My only complaint the whole evening were the boisterous people on the adjacent table. We will certainly be back. Excellent value and highly recommended.
