Lebury is definitely the best restaurant in London, not many restaurants in the world can beat the relaxed yet attentive service. Food is full of flavor and even the most delicate ingredients gets to shine, presentation is beautiful. The wine list is full of interesting producers and blends, and the sommeliers are proud and excited of the wines they have to offer.
Would be nice with some more interesting non alcoholic drinks to pair with the food but that is the only thing.
We will soon be back again for sure!

Our third visits to this Michelin 2-stars restaurant and again it lives up to our expectations in all areas from service, wine list and food. The restaurant is also situated in a lovely environment of Notting hill which allows us to have a pleasant walk to end the day.

The Ledbury is without a doubt the best restaurant I have ever been to. The service is excellent with knowledgeable sommeliers and attentive but respectful waiters and waitresses.

The Ledbury was above and beyond the other top restaurants in London that I have been to as each course was consistently lovely, some particular highlights were the white beetroot and smoked eel, tomato course, the amazing warm bantam's egg and of course the impeccably well cooked trout. I have to give the desserts a mention as well and pre dessert was beautiful. The current cheese selection is another excellent option to be considered.

We had the maximum number of courses on the tasting menu and the gap between each course is timed perfectly and not rushed so that you can enjoy the long meal without it feeling like a challenge to finish everything. it's a lot of food and our dinner lasted for around three hours.

The canapés and petits fours were beautiful little additions to the evening. The wine list is fantastic and complements the contemporary aesthetic of the food.

Our service was faultless, they invited us into the kitchen to meet the chefs, they gave us complementary ice cream and even gave us a copy of the evening's menu to take home. It's these little additions that are unseen in other fine dining restaurants in the capital that reinforce The Ledbury's position as possibly the best example of modern British dining right now.

Faultless meal and service to belatedly celebrate my mothers birthday. We both agreed was the best meal of our lives and the extra touch of a birthday dessert was a great surprise.

This was a special occasion and we were all so happy with our experience. The food was expertly prepared and beautifully plated. Everything from the canapé to the desserts were skillfully executed and delicious with the ingredients the focus of the dish -that is, simple ingredients were not manipulated into anything but simply perfectly prepared and paired with other perfectly prepared ingredients to make a happy marriage of flavor and texture in my mouth. The pigeon was artful. The staff were attentive and read us and our needs perfectly. We loved everything about it.

Great experience but was missing a little bit of warmth for my liking. We are a very expressive and joyful family and atmosphere was rather subdued. Despite this our servers did warm up to us which made it a beautiful evening in the end.

I and mother went to the Ledbury for dinner at the last night of our twoweek UK trip.

The Ledbury is near Notting Hill area, and is convenient to reach.

We were welcomed warmly by reception.

We ordered 8 courses tasting menu, and asked waiter to recommend red wine for us, the red wine was nice, and with fairly reasonable price.

The courses were delicious, I favoured the fish and beetroot and mother liked desert with chocolate also.

The main course was deer meat, it is not the kind of meat we loved most, but still delicious.

Our dinner lasted for 3 hours and we were too full at the end.

The service was nice. Manager on duty sometimes came to us to introduce the courses and also chatted with us.

There were not much customers, but all people were in high mood, and they talked loud, which made us very relaxed.

If I came back to UK afterwards, I will definitely visiti the Ledbury again. And I have recommende it to my friends planning to visit UK.

A great dinner experience.

This was our second visit to The Ledbury. We travel a lot and eat at many up market restaurants around the world. We believe The Ledbury should be rated in the top 10 restaurants in the world. The menu is very well constructed and takes you through a wonderful journey. The food is exciting, innovative, visually stunning and wonderful in flavour and texture. The service is stellar. You are made to feel welcome, nothing is a problem and there is a real attention to each customer's needs. The ambience is excellent.

Everything is good! Especially the fish. Me and my friend take six course and it’s really worth it. Except the last dessert which is a biscuit of caramel and a truffle chocolate is too extreme for us and not our taste.

Too rigid that they don’t allow change my booking to a later time. I booked 6:30pm initially. Unfortunately i got a late lunch.,They said they were unable to change as all time slot bookings were full and confirmed, they could not find other guests to fill up my slot. When I arrived, only 4 tables including mine. When finished my dinner at 8:30, there were in fact a number of vacant tables.
Otherwise, this dinner would be a perfect one with my full appetite.

Outstanding foot- innovative and interesting. Really well presented and delicious.
The only disappointing thing was the mark on wine - why put at least £60 on a bottle when you’re already paying £130-150 per head. It’s just sad that all these top restaurants do this. It didn’t detract from a great experience but ...
