Had the lunch tasting menu on Saturday 14th March. The restaurant was quieter than usual because of Coronavirus but the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more attentive. The food, wine and level of service were all exemplary. I'll definitely be back in happier times and send all the best to all of the wonderful team.

The Ledbury is a wonderful dining experience and it deserves to be regarded as one of the best restaurants in London. I don't care that its only number 64 in the top 100, it should be much higher. Not only is the food brilliant and perfectly executed, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

The food was amazing. The meal began with small bites so unique I wanted more. Then each course that followed was delicious. My 10-year old granddaughter enjoyed all but one dish and I was happy to eat hers. Of course, she wanted me to reciprocate later in the meal, but I wasn’t sharing! Don’t eat here just to satisfy your hunger. It’s a sensual experience and well worth the price.

Back here after a long break
Previously blown away by the food quality and simplicity

Now it’s in a on a par with many other establishments that perhaps try too hard to impress with visual effects but where no one dish is outstanding or lingers long in the memory - food was good but never amazing ( expect the bread maybe )

Pity

Stunning experience as always. This is such a treat. Exquisite food complemented by friendly and informal but perfect service make for a winter’s evening cocooned from the world. Yes it’s expensive but the care,technical prowess and inventiveness that goes into the memorable food makes it great value for money in my book. Thank you.

This was our third visit to The Ledbury, probably our favorite restaurant in London, and the third time was certainly a charm. On this occasion, we were celebrating our 35th anniversary. The service is impeccable, without being stuffy or formal. The maitre d' was friendly and helpful--and surprised us with a special dessert in honor of the occasion. The sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and helpful, finding a wine in our preferred price range that was a wonderful match for our dinner. Of course, the food is superb--combining flavors and textures that are unmatched. It was truly a special occasion. Although it is expensive by any measure, The Ledbury is a good value for the excellence in food, wine, and service.

First course was plopped down on our table without any explanations about what it was or how to eat it (this improved marginally over the course of our meal though a couple of times we couldn’t understand the explanation and unsure if the server understood us when we asked a question as he just disappeared), asked the sommelier for a super dry/mineral Chablis without a hint of sweetness and he served us a lukewarm bottle that was sweet and fruity. Would have sent it back but it was quite late at that point. The fish was tough and not finished, My meat was well cooked to a perfect medium rare but my husband’s was way too rare...like they forgot to cook it at all! Maybe this was an off night for the chef and the waitstaff but the bill was £200/person. For a two Michelin star restaurant and at that price, we were beyond disappointed. We had been at Bibendum the week earlier and that is how a two Michelin star restaurant should be. We should be walking out happy to have spent £200/ person, not disappointed and embarrassed that we suggested it to our friends.

One of the most consistent Michelin dining experiences. You will likely never be disappointed going here.

Second time to the restaurant and as per usual, the dishes are complex in palate and visuals but refined and delicately balanced flavours.

Best value for money for a tasting menu (£165 for 8 courses), which includes 2 canapes and 2 post dessert treats.

My family has been to a few Michelin restaurants collectively in the UK and we all agree we would go back to The Ledbury above all.
