We were celebrating 40th birthday. The restaurant had personalised the menu for us and decorated the table. The food was absolutely superb and the service matched. We could not fault anything. We had the tasting menu and matched wines. This is incredibly good value and way less than what you would pay in London. I cannot recommend this place more highly.. plan ahead and get a table booked. You won’t regret it.. we are already thinking about when we will next go.

This is a place which you can rely on for great service, and amazing food time and time again. It's always a pleasure to take a few hours off and indulge in the tasting menu, a real treat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, even if it had to begin at 6:45 because it was the only available time. We had the three course menu, with every course having several mouthwatering options. I had for the seabream and the "dish of the day" - veal. They more than lived up to our expectations, with the combination of flavours which will remain a long time in our memory. The service was exemplary, as demonstrated when the mousse (dessert) was delayed; our wait was compensated for by another (strawberry?) dessert, until the mousse arrived.
The wine(from the Hush Heath winery in Kent) was the best English pinot noir I have had.
Bravo all round!

Celebrated a birthday here on 21 September. Staff were friendly and very attentive. The birthday boy had his name printed on the menu which was a nice touch. The food was excellent . best mash ever! Really good value, considering the quality of the food.

As always the most sublime food and wines.
We are not an easy table to cater for as we have multiple allergies and dietary requirements - but the team do not make this an issue and we can enjoy a wide range of dishes without worrying.
A big thank you to the chef and all the staff.

We loved The French Table! It was our anniversary and they made a real effort for us, including everyone wishing us a Happy Anniversary and giving us bespoke menus. We went for the 3 courses, had cocktails (Mauritian Martini, Margarita - both delicious!) and loved everything. It's top notch, and the best food in the area.

Excellent lunch ... delicious and well presented food, great value and service ... Sarah went the extra mile to accommodate one of our party who has several food allergies and added some lovely personal touches for two of our table who were celebrating their 60th birthdays. We will definitely return again soon! Thank you!

Superb food (as always) with good service. and a sensibly sized menu with a variety of choice. Good wine options at sensible prices and with great options to order a range of wines by the carafe (0.25 or 0.5l).

It's not cheap but it is reasonably priced for what it is.

We had tasting menu with matching wines and every course was great and such good value.
The staff especially Sarah are very knowledgeable about the wines etc and my guest asked to modify a course on the tasting menu which wasn’t a problem. Loved it all.

We have been visiting the French Table for many years and it never fails to deliver. As usual, the food and service were exceptional.
Although living on the other end of London, we don't hesitate to visit as much as possible because this is our all time favorite restaurant.

Excellent food and service yet again from this local gem. There isn’t a restaurant offering such consistent high standard and quality in the area. The menu offers a variety of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes and daily specials. The wine list has sensibly priced bottles as well as options for glass or carafe. Our next visit, a family get together, is already booked.

The food, ambience, service was divine. Wish I knew the name of the waitress, she was the best, so professional, warm, friendly, lovely smile. We were celebrating Troy's new job and congratulations was written on the menu. The waitress congratulated him on his first week. He was blown away! The food was delicious. The entire evening was just perfection. Thankyou!
