A wonderful dining experience all around - Sunday brunch as a solo diner, and the service was excellent without any trace of neglect for a table of one. The truffled chicken sandwich and chips were delicious, was pleased that the chicken wasn’t fried and was neither over nor under-truffled. I would absolutely return to this lovely restaurant!

My partner and I recently visited the resturant for my birthday and we could not fault it. The food was delicious and was served in good time. The service from all the staff was excellent and the resturant is very beautiful with a lovely atmosphere. Thank you.

Lovely decor and ambience. All the staff were very courteous and helpful . The dining room is absolutely stunning. Service was really excellent. Food was mostly delicious. Only criticism was the tuna carpaccio, while fresh, was a bit bland and needed more flavour. For the Main course we both opted for the special of the day, Tornado Rossini, which at £37 per head was pricey but delicious and puddings, one chocolate bomb and one lemon baked Alaska were both divine. Staff made a discreet fuss of my husband for his birthday which was appreciated. The cocktails, at around £10 each, were excellent value for a place like this and beautifully made. We had a lovely evening and are very much looking forward to a return visit.

Our second trip in two months and we were welcomed back as if we were weekly regulars. It is a bustling place but the service is slick, welll drilled and there are plenty of staff. The food is very good, not exceptional but it sets its stall out as a Brasserie and that is exactly what it delivers. Wine list is very good with a lot of choices around £30 so no need to break the bank, but options if one wants to go deeper. We used to go to Bluebird quite often but had the contrast there of poor service and indifferent food. This is a fun place to go and we haven’t yet been in the summer to enjoy the garden, which is an added dimension.

Overall a great dining experience but we both felt the prawn starter was a little too greasy as was the fish oo the fish and chips plate. When the dining room became full the noise level was high making conversation a little difficult. That aside, will definitely return. The staff could not have been better.

Had a really great evening Friday past. Excellent menu and everything we chose was very tasty, buzzy atmosphere, great decor, would 100% go again. It breaks a good balance between fine dining and your average restaurant at reasonable prices for what you get. Compliments all round and definitely get a salted caramel espresso martini at the bar after, was banging. Thanks

Thoroughly enjoyed lunch at the Chelsea Garden several times now and have never been disappointed. An excellent retreat from shopping, with some great food and a well deserved glass of wine. Always a good buzzy atmosphere with plenty of customers and lots of staff rushing around doing a great job. Just be mindful that the bill mounts up with the extra bits over and above the food.

Just a fabulous place to go with friends. The service was amazing and the food outstanding, the blackened cod is fabulous. I love the ambience and there is always a fun crowd. My favourite time to go is in summer. There is no where in London as pretty as that garden.
My favourite restaurant.
