Really great experience with fantastic personal touches to make birthday celebration extra special
The quality of the cuisine is excellent, the wine list too
We had a wonderful wedding anniversary lunch - personlised menu and plates for desert. We loved it all - as always. Have never had a bad meal at this restaurant and have been visiting for many years. We had such a lovely day
Happy to get a table as know how busy they are, have been wanting to take my wife for ages. It did not disappoint!
Absolutely amazing food.
Only slight issue is the size of the tables which are far too small to accommodate plates, water, wine etc comfortably.
We had a most enjoyable evening at The French Table - a good varied and imaginative menu and excellent cooking. The wine list is first rate (a very good Cahors for £29) and the mark up is fair. It is not cheap but then the quality of food is worth it.
Nice lunch for a treat, although portions didn’t fill up two men.
We have visited The French Table many times over the past 8 years. It’s our favourite place; the food, ambiance and service is faultless!
Really tasty French brasserie. I had cod and my husband had a lump of veal which were very tasty and hearty. Lovely hostess who seems to genuinely care and be happy to have us.
As usual the French Table was fantastic, great food and amazing service
Perfect ..as always !
Felt very safe and secure in these difficult times
Tasty food and very attentive service and would again.
We had the tasting menu including recommended wines. Everything was absolutely delicious. We have already booked our next visit. What a superb local restaurant.
Beautiful tasty seasonal french food. Informal but smart atmosphere. Very considerate caring friendly staff
Gorgeous little restaurant with fantastic food and very lovely staff. A gem in Surbiton.
Had dinner here to celebrate a birthday. Was made to feel special without being over the top, for example personalised menus.
Had the taster menu with accompanying wines which was lovely with a wide variety of dishes, with wines explained by the staff.
It is expensive but worth it
Wonderful anniversary lunch. Food was amazing and service was faultless. We will be back.
Absolutely delicious food beautifully served. The staff have excellent knowledge of food and wine and are very helpful and welcoming . Really lovely evening.
Excellent service , great food.
Would be better to have more distance between tables.
It was my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary and the French Table made it a memorable celebration.
Absolutely excellent. Social distancing adhered to, wonderful can't wait to go again.
Delicious food, beautifully presented. Recommend the scallops and the tasting menu.
Amazing foo, great value for money. The lunch menu is epic!
If you are looking for a great restaurant to treat your friends or family, this is the restaurant that you need. As a hotelier and foodie, I would highly recommend French Table and you will never be disappointed. My dear friend sadly lost her daughter last week, I wrote a comment to have a quiet table for us due to the situation, French Table gave us the best table in the house, the food was amazing as usual, the service is just right and the wine choice is always great here too. My friend and I had an enjoyable time together. I would really like to thank everyone for making this comfortable afternoon happen for my friend who had not slept for days. It is very important to us and thank you so much.
Great food with a very friendly and knowledgeable service.
Always excellent. Amazing service and food delicious. Tasting menu every time!
Beautiful food served by lovely people. It’s a great dining experience that won’t disappoint.
Wonderful to be back at the French Table where it has been the place of so many past celebratory meals. This time my old friend Nick treated me to a post-lockdown celebration. We started with a gorgeous non-alcoholic cocktail that whetted our appetite for a lovely lunch that followed. The food, staff and service remained impeccable with additional Covid-19 health and safety measures. The desserts truly sings!! We waited weeks to get a Friday lunch spot and the anticipation has heightened our appreciation to have such a marvelous restaurant in Surbiton for the locals to enjoy. It gives me great pleasure and delight to share my experience knowing the French Table is here to stay long after the pandemic has been controlled.
Excellent as usual. Really enjoy dining here. Lovely food, great service. It a little gem of a place !
Outstanding as always. Tasting menu with wine pairings makes fir an easy choice and all left to the experts who get it so effortlessly right.
Went there for a delayed anniversary meal. We both had the tasting menu with the wine flight. Each course just kept getting better. The desert was just out of this world and a great finish to a fabulous meal. Already booked to go back.
Tasting menu with accompanying wines, outstanding.
Had a fantastic meal not cheap but for a special occasion it was excellent
Excellent food and wine, lovely staff and good COVID-safe arrangements. Unfortunate that our request for a variation on the wine tasting menu wasn't checked with manager when we asked if it was possible and resulted in being charged more than we had understood we would be. That is the only reason our review isn't 5 star.
All was perfect and safe on our special day. Thank you!
The best meal we have had this year. The food was amazing and everyone is so kind and attentive. Can’t wait to book again.
Delicious in lovely setting, elegant and understated. Very good value for a fine dining establishment.
For a long time , The French Table has been the outstanding restaurant in the Surbiton area.Our lunch more than justified this assessment.Ins spite of closure and the upheaval requird in distancing and sanitising, the very high standard was maintained.
This would be an assessment shared as the restaurant was full for all the tables that could be fitted in.
Our first visit to this restaurant and the first restaurant since lockdown. Couldn’t have chosen a better place to enjoy a celebration lunch. Service, food and drinks all excellent. A memorable visit that we hope to repeat for a special occasion.
The food, as always was amazing, delicious, well balanced flavours and textures.
Sides were unnecessary as it turned out.
Wine slightly overpriced, but service was excellent and in these challenging times, it was good to be out in as near a normal setting as possible. We'll be back I'm sure as we're still talking about the different elements of our meals. Thoroughly enjoyable.
