We love the French table. Delicious food and excellent service. We take friends there if we want to treat them for some reason eg to say thank you or to mark a retirement etc. A restaurant for a special occasion or treat for someone. You can rely on the French Table to deliver a high standard of cuisine.

The French Table is our restaurant of choice for special occasions. The dishes are all outstanding but I would especially recommend the Tasting Menu which is always surprising and delicious. Service is excellent but the atmosphere is pleasantly relaxed. Lunch is a real bargain for food of this standard.

Booked for 1.30pm, because they couldn’t offer us anything earlier, and when we arrive the place is packed.

We ordered the tasting menu at £32 for 5 courses, plus Sicilian Grillo at £23, rather than go for the paired wines.

The wine came at once, closely followed by an amuse bouche of deep-fried eel on spiced pumpkin. Quite fishy, but very good. The first of the 5 courses arrives soon after – scallops in a shell, topped with chorizo crust, with cauliflower and seaweed chutney. This is amazing. The crust is crumbly with a kick, the scallops (2) just right and the seaweed a novel taste.

The second course was a “ballotine” of foie gras, it was a round slice of paté wrapped in crushed mushrooms, and supported by roast fig and piccalilli, with a streak of port sauce.

There’s a good satisfied buzz around the busy room and, despite the table being quite close together, no overly loud guests. There is some background music, but playing so softly as to be hard to identify.

Next is hake on coco beans with crispy fried samphire and a lobster sauce. The sauce smells gorgeous, the hake is nicely judged with a slightly crispy top and the samphire really fun. It’s not a big portion, as you might expect in a tasting menu, but very good indeed.

Three pieces of medium rare beef come with some creamy, cheese and garlic mash (pomme aligot), girolles and a madeira sauce. The beef is simply excellent, tender and so full of flavour.

Our final course is chocolate soufflé with vanilla parfait - stunning. The soufflé has a lovely crust and a melting interior; the parfait is covered in nutty chocolate. Nothing to fault at all – parfait indeed.

I managed to secure a table for a wedding anniversary celebration lunch. We opted for the tasting menu, but picked our own wine. It was an absolutely outstanding experience on every level. Fabulous food, knowledgable and attentive but not intrusive service, convivial ambiance. This wasn't our first visit and it won't be our last. An absolute gem of a restaurant.

Food was fantastic, we had 3 courses, cocktails and wine. Everything was great value and we were able to sit and chat for ages over our lunch. I particularly liked a truffle risotto served with the guinea fowl, it was absolutely full of flavour. We will be returning again soon.

I took my husband for his b. Day. Mum in law, 5 year old and baby came too.
Our experience couldn't have been more positive, absolutely everyone from the staff were super lovely and we were all catered for even our baby son!
My husband had lovely b. Day wishes in his dessert plate and in the menu! This lovely gesture couldn't have been more thoughtful.
We will definitely be coming back for more.
Thank you TFT!!!

Fabulous birthday celebration for ten of us for Izzy’s birthday. Delicious food. I think we were the noisiest table but nobody seemed to mind. Fun fun fun. Great service and friendly personnel. Thank you to the French TAble. Best dining experience we have had in A while. Complimentary shots and champagne at the end of the evening. Oh what a night! 💖

Nice little french place, the food was delicious.

I found the service a bit chaotic, waiters & waitresses are a bit all over the place and mistakes happen, they try a bit too hard but it makes it a bit stressful to watch to be honest

Thank you for your comments and I'm sorry you were disappointed with our service. We did have a new member of our team out on the floor for the first time that evening and in their keeness, they approached the wrong table. A mistake that we rectified at the time, but I understand how this might've affected your experience with us. We geuninely take great pride in our service and we'd love the opportunity to look after you again - something I hope you'll consider. Zoe, Reservations Manager

We’ve only ever been for lunch which we particularly enjoy. We took friends who had never been before, they are well travelled individuals, and they thought it was excellent. It's unpretentious and casual but nothing is casual about the food which is creative, a pleasure to eat and one can have bread, three courses with wine and coffee with chocolates for a very reasonable price.

We had the tasting menu with wine which is super-expensive but a real treat. Absolutely stunning dishes, particularly the scallops and the beef - but it was all so tasty. Pairing the wines adds to the special feeling of the evening. Can’t wait to do this again but will have to save our pennies for a while!

Fantastic food, beautifully presented and completely delicious. The staff are very attentive and knowledgeable about the dishes and the wine. I highly recommend the tasting menu with paired wines, which although quite pricey, is totally worth it. It’s a wonderful restaurant to visit as a bit of a treat and/or special occasion.

We saw this place on The F Word. My husband booked us for lunch after we flew in. They were lovely about storing our bags while we ate. The three course lunch was beautiful, the venue was light and lovely. Their chorizo bread was to die for. Definitely visit their bakery next door to grab some loaves and desserts for later. Simply perfect experience

TFT has been recommended to us by friends and we finally visited on Saturday. We were not disappointed. The service was impeccable and the menu varied and of high quality. We have eaten in a number of restaurants in Paris and TFT easily matches the very best and betters many. We will definitely return to this excellent restaurant.

Having dined at the French Table three times, have concluded that the food, although well cooked and presented, is usually over-elaborate, with too many ingredients and tastes. And with it rather expensive, especially when vegetables are extra. We were also disappointed in a restaurant which is admirably quiet, one table had a very small and noisy baby, quite spoiling the ambience. possibly forgivable at lunch time, but not in the evening.
